Digital Extremes are known for their game Warframe, a free-to-play third-person shooter that has been trucking for quite a while, and still maintain a healthy playerbase.
They have now announced a new game that will be a first-person team shooter, but with deck-building mechanics. No footage of the game is available just yet, but the concept can work, as seen in the re-released Phantom Dust. Though with E3 looming by, it won’t be long until we see it in action.
Should you be curious to try it out, you can sign up for the alpha test here. The alpha test should begin on May 26th.
Paladins, the hero-shooter from the folks behind SMITE, has finally landed on the PS4. The PC version launched last year and due to the timing, it was heavily compared to the other popular hero shooter Overwatch. However, as time has passed Hi-Rez has made numerous changes to the gameplay and has since added more maps and champions to choose from.
Paladins had a lengthy closed and beta on PS4 before the launch today, so expect the game to have fairly acclimated for console play. You can go download the game for free here. If you’re looking for an FPS with character abilities this is a good and free alternative to try out.
Another new tidbit emerges for id Software’s latest take of Quake, the series that made established competitive multiplayer FPS on PC. In an interview with creative Tim Willits by Polygon, he revealed that the game will be free-to-play, but with an option to outright buy it.
The free-to-play version will only have one champion for selection: the Ranger (a.k.a the QuakeGuy, the default character model in older Quakes). The Champion Pack will unlock all other champions for a fixed price. Maps will all be shared between free and paid players.
Why do such a thing? id want more players, especially in parts of the world where the Quake name don’t hold as much of a [...]
Senpai! Looks like our early reports were accurate, Let It Die is now available not just in Japan, but all of Asia. You can now download the game at this link here. It’s a whopping 55GB download, but the initial 18GB should let you play the first three floors.
Let It Die is a free-to-play Souls-like action game exclusive for the PS4. Interestingly it is mostly single-player in nature and has a different way of monetising the game. We will get into how the monetisation works in a later article.
Also, remember to change your allegiance once you opened up the Tokyo Death Metro, an MGSV-like mode where you get to raid other player’s base and defend your own. [...]
Dauntless is a new game announced at the 2016’s Game Awards, but it showed too little to make an impression. But the gameplay footage from the folks at PC Gamer is showing lots of potential: it could be the Monster Hunter game that’s available on PC.
For those not in the know: Monster Hunter is a series that has carved its own niche as a genre. With some RPG, MMO and action game elements, you team up with a few friends to hunt big, giant monsters. Then the loot from that can be used to craft bigger, better gear.
Dauntless seems to be doing that with its combat- you and a few friends team up to fight behemoths. Combat has more depth here with some combos that [...]
The one interesting news during the Playstation Experience last month that we don’t put out is Grasshopper Manufacture’s free-to-play Souls-like Action game Let It Die being released. Why? Because the launch was only for North America and Europe. As always, Asia will have the short end of the stick when it comes to releases.
But at least we now know when the Japanese-made game is going to release in its home country.
Over on Let It Die’s official Twitter account (apparently run by a certain Uncle Death), it was revealed that the Japanese release will be on February 2. To coincide the release, a concert will be done in Japan featuring the game’s [...]
