It’s still tough to be a new Eve Online player in 2022

przez admin

“In a way you could say that we’ve been failing at teaching Eve for 19 years,” says Bergur Finnbogason, the creative director of Eve Online. It’s not the whole story when it comes to new players in the infamous space MMO, but it is the dominant one.

Among the many graphs that Finnbogason presented to the Eve faithful during his Fanfest keynote in Reykjavík this year, one was a colourful standout. It showed Eve Online’s learning curve as a comedy cliff face, so steep that it turned back on itself. Stickmen tumbled from its peak, while others were crucified or hanged from the curve’s mantel – killed by Eve’s notoriously cruel new player experience. It earned a laugh of grim recognition from the audience, all survivors of that terrible climb.

Techland Reveals Concept Art For New AAA Open-World Fantasy Action-RPG

Techland, the studio behind this year’s Dying Light 2 Stay Human, has revealed the first look at its unannounced fantasy RPG that’s now in development. 

The game, which does not yet have a title, is officially being referred to as a “AAA open-world action-RPG in a fantasy setting,” and today’s concept art reveal highlights just that. Featuring luscious greenery, ancient ruins, and plenty of beautiful waterfalls, it seems this fantasy RPG will be quite the looker if the concept art is any indication. Techland released the concept art below as a way to let developers know that the studio is hiring and that dozens of positions are open for work on this RPG. 

Techland says the development team is led by key figures behind some of the „biggest RPGs in modern history,” including the narrative director behind The Witcher III: Wild Hunt’s Bloody Baron questline, Karolina Stachyra, as well as Witcher III narrative lead Arkadiusz Borowik, Cyberpunk 2077 open world director Bartosz Ochamn, Horizon Zero Dawn lead animator Kevin Quaid, Deathloop lead game designer David McClure, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time creative director Mario Maltezos, and many more. 

“We’re very happy with what we have accomplished with the Dying Light franchise so far,” Techland CEO Paweł Marchewka writes in a press release. “Moreover, our journey with Dying Light 2 Stay Human has only just begun as we plan to support this game for at least five years, with its scope and size matching, if not exceeding, what we have provided our community with during post-launch support for its predecessor. At the same time, our ambition is to introduce a brand new IP that is vastly different from what we have been doing for the past several years.

“We want to create a fully next-gen experience. A new fantasy epic set in a sprawling open world, fueled by the skills and experience we have gained as a team over the years, infused with new ideas, passion, and creativity. While we cannot share more details about this project now, we’re all truly invested in it and looking forward to showing it to gamers when the time is right.” 

While waiting to learn more about this untitled RPG, read Game Informer’s Dying Light 2 review and then read Game Informer’s exclusive interview with the lead game designer of Dying Light 2 detailing what’s next for the game after that.

Random: Fan Creates Animal Crossing: New Horizons Island For „Ugly” Villagers

przez admin

No pretty ones allowed.

The Animal Crossing series is known for its cute and cuddly vibes. You wake up, go fishing, talk to villagers, and generally have a lovely time. But with such a large cast of characters, players all have their own favourites, and many of the animals are created to reflect real breeds of that particular animal, or even represent historical or fun ideas, like Lucky — who’s a mummified dog — or Hopkins, an inflatable rabbit.

With Animal Crossing: New Horizons, players can manipulate who they want on their island by using amiibo cards, being a general pain to those they don’t like, or simply ignoring the ones they come across on the Island Tours. Because of this, there’s a pile of rejected Animal Crossing villagers that are deemed as „ugly”, and therefore are left in a rejected pile of unloved Animal Crossing characters. But one Reddit user is trying to change that and give these „ugly” villagers the home they deserve.

Next Star Wars Movies: Lucasfilm Boss Gives An Update On New Projects

przez admin

The Star Wars movie series hasn’t seen a new release since 2019’s The Rise of Skywalker, and the entire series is reportedly now on „hiatus.” But what’s the status of the film franchise going forward? Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy told Vanity Fair that the company does have a „road map” for the future of Star Wars films, but the report said fans should not expect the cadence of new entries to be as „relentless” as in the past.

According to the report, the new Star Wars movie from Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi will „likely” be the first, followed by Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins’ new Rogue Squadron film after. There are no release dates for these films, however, and schedules can always change anyway.

Other new Star Wars films in the works include a movie to be produced by Marvel’s Kevin Feige, but Kennedy implied this is not a sure thing. „I would love to see what movie he might come up with,” Kennedy explained. As for The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson’s new Star Wars trilogy, Kennedy confirmed nothing about this but explained that Johnson is very busy right now with the Knives Out sequels and bigger plans at Netflix, suggesting his Star Wars series is on the backburner.

Take-Two Will Release Over 30 Games By 2025, Including New Ports And Remasters

przez admin

Things are ramping up for Take-Two Interactive as a new financial report details the publisher’s IP plans for the next three years. According to Nintendo Life, many projects are in the works, from those already announced to undisclosed titles. Ultimately, the report revealed over 30 games are in the works, including, but not limited to, new ports and remasters. 

The full report, which can be read here, categorizes the upcoming games and provides clear definitions for each:

  • Immersive Core: Titles that have the deepest gameplay and the most hours of content. Examples include our key sports franchises (like PGA 2K and NBA 2K) as well as Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption (to name a few). 
  • Independent: Externally developed Private Division releases. 
  • Mobile: Any title released on a mobile platform.
  • Mid-core: Titles that are either an arcade title (like WWE Battlegrounds) or games that have many hours of gameplay, but not to the same extent as an immersive core title. 
  • New iterations of prior releases: This includes ports and remastered titles. Sequels would not fall into this category.

Moreover, a pipeline table in the document states Take-Two is developing 24 immersive core games, including The Quarry for June 10, Marvel’s Midnight Suns later this year, Kerbal Space Program 2 (PC) in early 2023, and NBA2K23, PGA Tour 2K23, and WWE 2K23 next year. Ten independent games, 20 mobile games like the GTA Trilogy in 2023, 7 mid-core games, including the long-awaited Tales from the Borderlands sequel, and eight new iterations of prior releases are also on the way. Fans of Take-Two’s many development studios undoubtedly have a lot to look forward to. 

It’s hard to guess the future for some of these categories, but what ports and remasters are you anticipating? Perhaps we’ll get to play a modernized Bully port! Let us know what you’re positing in the comments below!
