Dreamfall Chapters Book Two announcement trailer - briefly
(hx) 09:21 AM EST - Nov,27 2014 - Post a comment
Dreamfall Chapters Book Two is now officially announced, I guess, which shouldn't really surprise anyone because Dreamfall Chapters was always devised as an episodic series. It's also been officially named as Dreamfall Chapters Book Two: Rebels, which is perhaps a bigger deal.

DayZ Will Not Be Finished Until 2016 - briefly
(hx) 09:14 AM EST - Nov,27 2014 - Post a comment / read (2)
Bohemia Interactive has notified Early Access buyers that DayZ, its zombies survival game, will not be finished until the first half of 2016. The developer shared with us its plans for 2015 and beyond today, including final price points for when the game is released. The standalone version of DayZ entered Steam Early Access almost one year ago. The price is slated to gradually increase, though it will be reduced from the new norm of $34.99 to its previous cost of $29.99. As the game completes alpha testing in the final quarter of 2015, that price will be raised to $43.99. Final release price will be $49.99.

Ed.note: Why would they feel the pressure? They've already made 35 million dollars on pre orders for a game that is basically a copy of the mod. So they've built in some server checks and added some buildings to Cherno. That doesn't take 5 years. I mean the devs are sitting on a pot of gold laughing all the way to the bank. What pressure do they feel to finish?
Ubisoft Emails an Apology to AC: Unity Customers - briefly
(hx) 08:16 AM EST - Nov,27 2014 - Post a comment
Yannis Mallat from Ubisoft has sent out a letter of apology to gamers that purchased Assassin's Creed Unity. To help compensate for the sorry state of affairs that was the game's launch, Ubisoft will be giving out the Dead Kings DLC for free. Season pass holders will be able to get a free game. The list of free games includes new ones like Far Cry 4 and The Crew.
The launch of Assassin's Creed Unity was a highly-anticipated moment for me and for our development teams around the world who dedicated a tremendous amount of energy, passion and skill to the game's creation. For us, it was the culmination of years of work on new technologies, the development of multiple innovations -- including an all-new game engine -- and an evolution of the Assassin's Creed franchise's core pillars. More importantly, we know that it was a highly-anticipated moment for many of you as well, as you looked forward to taking part in the first truly next generation Assassin's Creed game.

Unfortunately, at launch, the overall quality of the game was diminished by bugs and unexpected technical issues. I want to sincerely apologize on behalf of Ubisoft and the entire Assassin's Creed team. These problems took away from your enjoyment of the game, and kept many of you from experiencing the game at its fullest potential.

We've been working hard to fix the problems players are reporting, and the patches we have released so far have resolved many of them. Today, we're releasing our third patch, which fixes a variety of specific issues related to the game's stability and performance, matchmaking and connectivity, gameplay and menus. You can find the release notes on that patch here.

To show our appreciation for your continued support, we're making the upcoming Assassin's Creed Unity Dead Kings DLC free for everyone. For Season Pass holders, we will also offer the choice of one additional game from a selection of Ubisoft titles for free. More details on the offer for Season Pass holders can be found here.

In addition to the latest patch and this offer, we are committed to delivering further fixes for other issues you've raised. In the meantime, please keep your feedback coming – it has been both humbling and incredibly helpful as we continue working hard to improve the overall quality of the game. We are hopeful that with these forthcoming updates, everyone will be able to truly enjoy their Assassin's Creed Unity experience.

We will continue striving to make Assassin's Creed one of the most ambitious and innovative franchises on the market, and we thank you for your continued loyalty and support.

Sincerely,
Yannis Mallat
CEO, Ubisoft Montreal & Toronto

(hx) 02:54 AM EST - Nov,26 2014 - Post a comment
A new Q&A video has been released for Stronghold Crusader 2, answering questions on downloadable content and other post-release feature updates. Firefly answers questions put to them by players on new single player content, multiplayer modes, forthcoming updates and Steam Workshop.

The latest release in Firefly's series of question and answer videos, made possible by the developer's successful move to self-publishing on Steam and other indie-friendly platforms, aims to answer the biggest questions from fans on the future of Stronghold Crusader 2. Since its move to self-publishing Firefly has enjoyed an open and transparent relationship with players, from social media and forums to public game shows and community nights. These improved player-developer relations helped massively in the development of Stronghold Crusader 2 and continues to be a source of inspiration and fun for the Anglo-American developer.

What new game modes will be introduced post-release? Will these updates be free? When can players expect new AI characters? What features and characters will return from Crusader 1? Will there be new Crusader Trail missions? The freedom of self-publishing has allowed Firefly to be completely honest with fans of the franchise, answering these questions and revealing more detail about the future of the franchise.

  • Far Cry 4 Patch v1.4.0 - Steam News announces the release of a new patch for Far Cry 4, which updates the shooter sequel to version 1.4.0, addressing an issue that caused a black screen and another that triggered a gray screen. Disappointingly enough, this patch does not address the stuttering or the SLI "black shadows" issues that have already been reported.
  • SpellForce 3 Announced - After taking in the community's ideas for a threequel and apparently showcasing a prototype at this year's Gamescom, Nordic Games surprised gamers with a press release today announcing the formation of a new Munich-based studio called Grimlore Games, as well as their first title - SpellForce 3. Here's to hoping the best for the future of the new studio, as well as a triumphant return to the RTS/RPG series. There are no screenshots, artworks, or any ETA. All I know is that the game will be coming to the PC.
  • Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues Early Access - Early access to Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues is now available through Steam, offering the chance to check out Richard Garriott's return to fantasy role-playing game design (and to Earth, for that matter). The game currently carries a 15% discount along with warnings that it is still in the pre-alpha stage of development.
  • Original Elite for Free - With the release of Elite: Dangerous nearing, the original 1984 version of Elite can be grabbed for free from the Elite: Dangerous Store, allowing the chance to see what the fuss is all about, or at least what it was all about back in a simpler, bygone time. 
  • Dark Souls 2 coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2015 - Dark Souls 2 is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next year in an enhanced version of the game called Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, Namco Bandai and From Software announced today. The re-release of Dark Souls 2 will come with the game's three downloadable add-ons and new enhancements. The PS4 and Xbox One versions of Dark Souls 2 feature updated graphics as well as new game content, including "an expanded story featuring additional in-game events and NPC character along with new deadlier enemies and gameplay improvements." Those improvements will also be available for the PC release of Scholar of the First Sin, which takes advantage of DirectX 11 for Windows. Scholar of the First Sin will be released on April 7, 2015.
  • Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- demo PS4 - An exclusive demo for Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- is set to arrive on PlayStation 4 today and it will only be available to subscribers of PlayStation's premium service. The Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- demo will open up the Arcade Mode storylines for bounty hunting badass Sol Badguy and lightning king Ky Kyske. Training Mode will also be open for both characters, allowing players to familiarize themselves with their moves, as well as many of the latest Guilty Gear's new features. The demo will last until December 8. Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- will arrive on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on December 16.
