Last time we checked in on Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr was a year ago, and the Space Marine action-RPG looked a little slow. Fast forward to today and new Alpha 2.0 footage of the game brings things more up to speed. In that it's starting to look good. With isometric action-RPG combat ala Diablo, and cover mechanics and combat strategy ala Dawn of War II -- this could be another Warhammer game to keep an eye on.
The other day we reported that current BioWare General Manager was leaving the studio after 17 years, with his replacement being Casey Hudson -- who's credits include may classic titles like the original Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic and Mass Effect. Taking to the BioWare blog, he's posted a letter announcing his return.
The Burning Crusade expansion for World of Warcraft launched back in 2007, which according to most calendars was a decade ago. Felmyst, a new World of Warcraft fan server aims to recreate that special time and place when it goes live this Friday, July 21. Blizzard in the past hasn't been so kind to servers of this nature, so there's no telling how this will end up.
BioWare's general manager Aaryn Flynn is leaving the studio after 17 years, which comes four months after the rocky launch of Mass Effect Andromeda. Flynn joined BioWare straight out of University and worked on seminal releases like Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Jade Empire. The news comes alongside a letter from Flynn posted on the BioWare blog.
When Blizzard finally lifted the lid on Doomfist, the long awaited Overwatch character that fans have been waiting to see since the game was first announced, rumours were flying that Terry Crews might be the voice behind the gauntlet. With the character's African origin that didn't happen, and in a new interview over at PC Gamer the actor opens up about his gaming habits. And trip to Blizzard.
Splash Damage, the British studio that cuts its teeth on Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory and found success across many titles including its own efforts Brink and Dirty Bomb, has partnered with Wargaming -- of World of Tanks, World of Warplanes, and World of Warships fame. So, does this mean they'll be leaving behind vehicles for some infantry-based historical warfare?
Available now for PS4 and PC, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles comes from Brisbane studio Prideful Sloth. And is the sort of experience that immediately draws you in. Part open-world adventure without combat, part build-your-own farm survival game, it all comes together with wonderful visuals and a true sense of discovery.
Okay so this might be a little confusing. Mainly because we had to re-read the announcement a couple of times ourselves to realise that the new Nordic-meets-the-Wildlings from Game of Thrones race of the Norsca, are coming to Total War: Warhammer on August 10, and not Total War: Warhammer II on September 28. But, those that pre-order II or get it during launch week get the Norsca Race Pack free of charge.
After debuting on PC, PS4, and Xbox One earlier this year, Death Squared from Sydney-based SMG Studio is now available on Nintendo Switch -- for $14.99 AUD. Already well received, the Switch release of Death Squared is quite possibly the best version yet as it feels like the perfect sort of co-op experience for the single-screen, multiple Joy-Con setup found with Nintendo's latest console.
