Tencent Acquires Majority Stake in Path of Exile Developer, Grinding Gear Games

Author: Guest_Jim_*

Grinding Gear Games, the developers of free-to-play ARPG Path of Exile have stated today Chinese publisher Tencent has acquired a majority stake in the company. Tencent is one of the largest game publishers in the world and owns other popular franchises like League of Legends and Clash of Clans. While Tencent may have a majority stake in the company, Grinding Gear Games will remain independent, a point the developers asked CEOs of other Tencent-invested companies about. Grinding Gear Games employees will also remain employees of that company and not Tencent. Going forward, the Chinese version of Path of Exile will not be prioritized over the international version, though the developers do want to reduce the release gap between the two versions. For those concerned about the Chinese version potentially getting exclusive features, almost all features are developed for the international version, but if Tencent requests something for the Chinese version that is not planned for the international version, it will be ported back into, if the developers feel it will be a good fit. There will not be a change to how people log in.

Along with this information, Grinding Gear Games also states it is working on multiple 3.x expansions for this year and next, and that work has begun on version 4.0.0, which is targeting Beta testing for early 2020.

To the Moon Game Being Made Into Animated Feature Film

For anyone who enjoyed the game To the Moon, including myself, there was some pretty cool news revealed yesterday. Kan Gao, director and composer for Freebird Games, shared on YouTube that the game is becoming an animated feature film. Details on the production are somewhat light at the moment, though he states it is a collaborate project between China and Japan, and it will be done by first tier Japanese animation companies. Also, Kan Gao will be part of the scripting and advising process, so it should remain a faithful telling of the story.

For those of you who have not played To the Moon, it is a narrative story following two doctors that enter the memories of the dying to give them a dying wish. In this game the wish is to go to the moon. As they work toward this goal, they discover suppressed tragedies in the patient's life and question if revealing those memories and granting the wish will do more harm than good. It is a very emotional game and quite an experience so I am quite interested in seeing how this film turns out.

Steam Link App Now Available on Android

Last week it was revealed Valve would be putting out a couple Steam related apps for iOS and Android, and today the Steam Link beta app for Android is up on the Play Store for you to try out. With this app you should be able to stream your games from your desktop to your Android device, provided it is on the same network and connected using Ethernet or a 5 GHz WiFi connection.

I have installed it on my Android phone and but I have not had the time to test it extensively yet. It is working though, reporting it sees my desktop and has a good connection.

If you are wondering how you would play a game on an Android device, you will most likely want a Bluetooth controller. To help with that, Valve has also recently put out (at least on the Steam beta client, though it might be live now) a firmware update for the Steam Controller, enabling Bluetooth LE. Personally I am happy to see this as it also allows me to connect my controller to my desktop wirelessly, without the need of the paired dongle.

Metro Exodus Delayed to Q1 2019

If you are a fan of the Metro series of games, you may be disappointed to learn the net installment, Metro Exodus, has been pushed to Q1 2019. Previously it was expected to launch late this year, but like with many games, the release date has slipped some.

This news comes in THQ Nordic's Q1 2018 press release covering its business growth, which saw a significant boost following the acquisition and consolidation of Koch Media, which owned Deep Silver. Not counting Koch Media though, net sales still increased 64%. This release also states Deep Silver will be publishing Wasteland 3 and Bard's Tale IV, which are both being developed by InXile, and that the release dates for Biomutant and Darksiders 3 are under evaluation.

More Details Given on RAGE 2

Author: Guest_Jim_*

Last week it was leaked and this week it was announced, RAGE 2 has had some information published on Bethesda's site, telling us more about what will be going on in this sequel. You will be playing as Walker, the last Ranger of Vineland, fighting against the tyrannical Authority on an Earth devastated by an asteroid. Pockets of humanity survived and formed factions that now fight over what resources remain.

Though still a Bethesda game, RAGE 2 is being developed by id Software in association with Avalanche Studios, the developers behind the Just Cause series and Mad Max game from 2015. When asked on Twitter, Christofer Sundberg of Avalanche stated the game will use Apex, which is Avalanche's engine and makes some sense as the desire is to combine the FPS pedigree of id with the open world sandbox experience Avalanche and its engine are known for.

RAGE 2 is expected to in 2019 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, giving you access to the wealth of weapons and Nanotrite abilities. These abilities are unique to Rangers, like Walker, and will allow you to push your upgradeable weapons into Overdrive to tip battles in your favor, or to just have more fun with your enemies.

RAGE 2 Officially Announced with Trailer

Author: Guest_Jim_*

After being leaked alongside other games, RAGE 2 has been officially announced by Bethesda, which has shared an announce trailer today, promising a gameplay reveal tomorrow. The announcement trailer itself lacks actual gameplay content in it, so if that is what you are looking for, you will probably want to check out Bethesda's YouTube page in twenty four hours. Until then you can enjoy this trailer, as it tells you to get ready to die.

If you look at Bethesda's webpage for the game, you might want to look at the very bottom, where the copyright information is. The reason to look is that RAGE 2 is apparently being developed in association with Avalanche Studios. Perhaps best known for its Just Cause series, Avalanche also developed the Mad Max game released in 2015. Just Cause 4 was also among the games leaked with RAGE 2.

Battlefield 5 Teaser Website Discovered

Category: Gaming

Author: Guest_Jim_*

It is far from a secret that EA and DICE are working on a new Battlefield game, thus far identified as Battlefield 5, but recently some fans of the series solved an easter egg in Battlefield I directing them to a teaser website. The hidden secret is on the Fort Vaux map and requires opening a door to a room with pipes dripping. It turns out the pipes drip in Morse code, which sent the fans to www.ea.com/neverbethesame. This webpage only gives a date of May 23 and #battlefield, so we know it is associated with the expected title and it appears its reveal will be in a couple weeks.

Though it has not been revealed yet, this web address and some comments from EA indicate the intention for Battlefield 5 is to upset the way combat games are played. Hopefully we will learn more about what this might mean on May 23.

After Several Future Titles Release, Bethesda May Have Confirmed RAGE 2

Category: Gaming
Posted: May 10, 2018 06:16AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

Yesterday someone noticed Walmart Canada had accidentally listed a number of games on its website that have not even been announced yet. Naturally the person took a screenshot and shared it one Twitter, showing everyone at least Walmart believes Just Cause 4, a Splinter Cell game, LEGO DC Villains, and Rage 2 are coming soon enough to need places on its website. Many more titles with placeholder box art were also captured in this image, but we already know games like The Division 2 are coming, and both Borderlands 3 and a new Assassin's Creed game are heavily expected but there are still some surprises.

Leaks of upcoming titles are something any developer or publisher wants to avoid, as a lot of resources are created and quality checked for the announcement, but when they happen it can become necessary to issue some kind of response. Bethesda, either as a joke or tongue-in-cheek confirmation of Rage 2 corrected the product page image on the @RAGEgame account, highlighting the incorrect keyart (an all-black background), lack of an age rating (would likely just be RP, but still necessary on the box), using the wrong font (give your characters the write character), and not using all caps (because it is RAGE 2 and not just Rage 2).

Chances are a lot of the games will be announced at E3 this year, or maybe a little earlier but with that show just a few months away, it might still be the big reveal. (Personally I am most looking forward to Just Cause 4.)

The game Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds has been banning people for cheating, as is common with video games. PUBG has taken it a step further, however, as the developers are arresting the creators of the cheats. These cheats contained Trojans (and who knows what else) that enabled the creators to steal user information. PUBG is actively targeting cheaters with force, and now its devs have gone after the creators of the cheats. These cheat sellers have made over five million dollars! They’ve been arrested for “hosting cheat marketplaces, brokering transactions, and developing cheats.”

It was a bit more than a month ago when Square Enix teased Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the next entry in the 2013-revived Tomb Raider franchise. The company promised April 27 would be the official reveal, and today it has indeed revealed much more information, including its September 14, 2018 release date.

In the upcoming title, Lara Croft will need to survive a deadly jungle and terrifying tombs if she hopes to stop a Maya apocalypse.

With the diverse set of skills, techniques, and equipment the developers are creating for her though, players should be able to survive.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is being developed by Crystal Dynamics and will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Pre-orders can get you a skill boost pack and two days of early access to the game, depending on the edition you get. The Season Pass, included in the Croft Edition, will have its content released on a monthly basis starting in October. This content includes seven challenge tombs, seven weapons, outfits, and skills, and narrative side missions, and one of each of these will be exclusive to the pass.

Star Control: Origins is the next entry in the classic franchise, and its Fleet Battles mode currently available in early access, as Stardock likes to do with its games. Recently it reached the Beta 2 phase and it has brought a number of changes players will certainly enjoy. Potentially near the top of the list for many is the addition of custom multiplayer matches. Custom ships are enabled in multiplayer, so you can show off your creations to the player base, but if you are only interested in showing off to your friends, you can password protect private lobbies. Custom matches can also have the arena size set, fleet size capped, and the number of asteroids, wormholes, and ion storms can be controlled.

New ships have been added with Beta 2, including the Greegrox Swarm, with the ability to heal itself, the Mu'Kay Grasper that forgoes ranged attacks to crush enemies with its tentacles, and the Lexite Interceptor equipped with dual-shot blasters and a tough shield. New weapon components have also been added, including Dual Shot, Shield, Ink Blob, Heal, and Death Ray. Other improvements include better graphics, improved performance, and balance updates.

Star Control: Origins is expected to reach its release state later this year.

It features six character classes for the player as they dig down into the randomly generated levels, finding random items and fighting monsters for answers.

Last month saw the early access release PC Building Simulator, a game that does a good job living up to its name already, and since then it has been doing rather well. In fact in its first month more than 100,000 copies have been sold, which is fairly impressive for an early access, indie title. It undoubtedly helps that many, including myself, have found it to be an enjoyable and fun experience, and with more features being added along with additional hardware and software partners, the experience should only be getting better.

June will mark the end of monthly updates coming to Battlefield 1, no doubt as more of the developers at DICE are transitioned over to focusing on the next game in the franchise, releasing this year. While we know the monthly updates are coming to an end, we can still expect content to come. For one thing, more maps from They Shall Not Pass are coming to all owners of the game. Coming in June is a new mode called Shock Operations, which are similar to the Operations modes, which the game introduced, but will be smaller. Instead of being across multiple maps, Shock Operations will have 40 players on offense and defense fighting over sectors on a single map. Shock Operations will be available on Giant's Shadow, Prise de Tahure, Lupkow Pass, Zeebrugge, and River Somme and all players will have access to them when playing Shock Operations. You will need to purchase the Premium Pass or appropriate expansion packs to have access to the premium maps across all game modes.

When StarCraft II receives its patch 4.3.0, players will have the option to purchase two arcade maps; ARK Star and Direct Strike. Both maps come from community creators, with ARK Star being made by Daniel 'Pirate' Altman, who won 2015's Rock the Cabinet contest, and Direct Strike comes from 'Tya.' Both maps cost $4.99 individually, and a share of the sales goes back to the creators. Accessing will be as easy as going to Custom then New Premium Maps or selecting Premium Content from the drop-down filter, once patch 4.3.0 is released. Once the map is selected, click Map Info and then pick the Premium tab.

ARK Star is a turn-based RPG featuring the Protoss, following the adventures of the Sol Seekers who are searching for the ARK Star, a mysterious weapon. Direct Strike is an upgrade on the already available Desert Strike HotS made by 'Tya.' It will replace the original, but a free version will remain available for everyone to enjoy, along with the new cosmetics and commander modes. Purchasing the premium version unlocks four new game modes, including Sabotage to hide players' staging areas, and Switch mode that allows players to change their race during the match.

GOG Adds User Profiles to Its Platform

Steam is the clearly dominant PC gaming platform, but it does have competitors, such as GOG that has carved out a niche of offering classic games, DRM-free games, and the completely optional GOG Galaxy launcher. Now it has finally launched its own User Profiles, allowing players to share information across its four seconds, Feed, Profile, Games, and Friends. There are also new privacy settings to go along with these profiles, so you can control what is and is not visible, which is something Steam recently added as well.

The centerpiece of these new user profiles is the Feed, where you can see what your friends have been playing, achievements, milestones, screenshots, forum activity, and general thoughts. You are free to provide your approval as you wish and to share your own stuff here as well. Your Profile is naturally going to be about you and your gaming accomplishments, such as how much time you have spent in your games, your latest achievements, and a look at what your friends have been doing too. Under the Games tab, you can see a list of all of your games along with different stats, which can be sorted and compared against your friends. The Friends tab provides a summary of their activity, including what games are most popular among them, so you can join them in multiplayer or find something to enjoy yourself. Some of the stats, like achievements, time played, and milestones will rely on using the GOG Galaxy launcher, but all users can still take advantage of the user profiles even without using the software.

Agony is a horror game being developed by Madmind Studios that will take you through Hell. To escape the plane of sorrow and pain, you will have to solve the riddle of the Red Goddess, who created this world and is the only one that knows how to escape it. Players will need to possess demons and other souls to find a way out.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2016 and a release date delay, we now have a new release date for the game of May 29, 2018. It will be coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on that day. In order to avoid an Adult-Only rating, which would keep the game off of the consoles, the developers recently explained some content has been modified, but not removed following interviews with age-rating organizations. There will be an optional patch on PC to remove these modifications though.

At the end of March, THQ Nordic announced it would be releasing Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-Tered in Q2 2018, and that was about it for launch information. Finnish retailer VPD may have let slip the release date and price though, at least on console. The retailer has a listing for the game up giving a release date of June 15 and a price of $30, though it will be a free upgrade for those who already own the game on Steam.

The original Red Faction Guerrilla released in 2009, and is considered the best in the franchise by many, thanks to its open-world design and the ability to destroy almost anything, with it falling to pieces in front of you. The Re-Mars-Tered version will have support for 4K displays and graphics that have been reworked and improved for better shadow rendering, lighting, as well as shader and postprocessing improvements.

Details are light at the moment, but it has been announced that Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass will make its debut at E3 2018 in June. To make this tease, developers Croteam made a short video showing the protagonist riding a motorcycle along a country road, and right at an army of enemies. Croteam also says the game "reignites the classic series," for those fans of the franchise. If you were hoping for a desert level, you will be disappointed as it states on the Steam Store page, "not a single desert level," though the gameplay will be on a "brutally bigger scale." The game is also marked as coming to Windows, Mac, and Linux, featuring online and local multiplayer, online and local co-op, cross-platform multiplayer, and Steam Workshop support.

It looks like we will be waiting until June to find out more.

We have news for a couple MechWarrior titles here, and first up is a new trailer for the upcoming MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries. The trailer shows off the level of destruction you can achieve as mechs take damage as does the environment. If the shortest path to an enemy is through a skyscraper, then the map can do with one less building. MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is currently aiming for a December 2018 launch and will be the first single-player MechWarrior title in over two decades.

 

 

For MechWarrior Online, the Solaris 7 Patch is launching this week, bringing expansion-level content. With Solaris 7, players will get to act as gladiators in 1v1 and 2v2 games that others can spectate.

Terraria: Overworld Development Ended

Terraria: Overworld, the sequel to the popular 2D survival sandbox Terraria has ceased development. In what was certainly a difficult, if necessary post, developer Re-Logic informed the community the game is too far from a release state and it will not compromise work on other projects for this one title. That is not to say the effort already invested will be wasted, as there are many ideas from Terraria: Overworld that will be implemented in future projects from the developer, including many that have not been publicly seen.

Also in the post are some of the lessons the developer has learned, including being more judicious with what it shares and when, to make sure only projects they are fully confident will reach fruition will be publicly known. Going forward Re-Logic will also try to keep core development more internal, and not rely on external teams for development.
