Lords of the Fallen Devs Are Already Working on No. 2

Written by Sam Welch on 18 December 2014 at 14:20

Often, the harder the game is, the more we want to play it ‘til we win. This is why more copies of Lords of the Fallen and games in the Dark Souls series remain booted up or neatly stored, rather than lobbed out of nearby windows. Those among us who can’t get enough of the infamous challenge offered by these games will be pleased to hear that Lords of the Fallen 2 is already in the works.

The executive producer of the recently released first game Tomasz Gop has confirmed that the team are “now working on vision and concepts for Lords 2” and looking to build on the ways that they developed the Dark Souls formula for a sequel. What were the standout differences for you? [More]

Go To Your Safe Place In This War of Mine Update 1.2

Written by Sam Welch on 18 December 2014 at 13:05

Update 1.2 for This War of Mine is set to confront that feeling of security that nothing seems to provide in quite the same way as your childhood home. Players will now be able to opt for their survivors to operate out of a treehouse during their struggle to take refuge from the anarchic war-torn remains of their neighbourhood, as part of a whole new shelter included in the update.

The new refuge is found in the outskirts, further from the city centre and away from the worst of the destruction. Any new game after the update will have the chance to spawn there. The unsettling antigame from 11-bit studios will also now allow players to handpick their starting survivors if they’d like to. After playing through the game once or more, perhaps you prefer a character with an ability that you particularly benefited from, or you have a grudge against one that caused trouble more than pitching in.

Total War: Arena Is Back, Now In Closed Alpha

Written by Sam Welch on 18 December 2014 at 12:10

Total War fans, Attention! that unusual almost-MOBA real-time strategy entry to Creative Assembly’s Total War Franchise is back. Total War: Arena was announced more than a year ago and entered beta, and then disappeared.

But that Rubicon still needs crossing, so Arena has resurfaced. Rather than being closer to release after the initial beta though, Arena is now in a closed alpha, accessible through signing up at the developer's website. Not everybody signing up is guaranteed an invite, but you will be kept up to date on the game's progress. [More]

12 Games Of Christmas - Hearthstone Vs DOTA 2

Written by Jon Sutton on 17 December 2014 at 18:00

The holidays can be a horrifyingly expensive time of year. Everywhere you turn there’s someone or something telling you to “Buy This”, or “Get That”. It can be a wallet sapping experience, but there is help at hand for those who love a bit of gaming.

The advent of Free To Play is often met with looks of disgust or tuts of disapproval, but it’s easy to forget that two of the biggest multiplayer games of this age are completely F2P. Yep, I’m talking about Blizzard’s Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, and Valve’s DOTA 2. Two F2P giants that show no signs of waning popularity, from two of the most beloved development outfits in the world of PC gaming. [More]

Harebrained’s first Shadowrun Returns campaign Dead Man’s Switch blasted through its Kickstarter goal in 2012 to achieve quadruple backing. The sophomore entry, Dragonfall, was funded by a million-dollar stretch goal. Harebrained Schemes haven’t been sitting on their hands in the meantime either, with “diabolical dungeon delveNecropolis also in the works and slated for a 2016 release and promising (or threatening?) a magical deathtrap that will change and restructure itself around you to prevent your escape. the Dragonfall campaign also saw a director’s cut release on Steam in September.

Grand Theft Auto Online Heists Revealed At Last In New Trailer

Written by Jon Sutton on 17 December 2014 at 15:20

The lesser spotted Online Heist is a rare beast. We’ve been camped out in the wilderness since September last year, keen for just the smallest glimpse of this elusive creature. 15 months later though and Rockstar has only gone and blown the bloody doors off its GTA Online Heists mode, revealing a substantial update that brings with it more than 20 hours of new content.

Online Heists is a four-player cooperative mode that has players working together in order to plan, prepare and execute complex Heists across Blaine County, in a similar manner to the core single-player experience. Coordination and communication is key to the success of these expansive Heists, which also come packing new vehicles, weapons, clothing, and an aircraft carriers. Yes, there’s now a mahoosive new aircraft carrier, complete with four jets looking readymade for high-speed robberies. [More]

Valve Brings Region Locking To Steam To Prevent Value Exploits

Written by Jon Sutton on 17 December 2014 at 14:00

Brace yourself, because this could come as a crushing blow to many of you, but Valve has announced that Steam is now region-locked in many territories, with immediate effect. The move has taken place in order to stamp out the low currency value exploits available on Steam, where users were purchasing games from countries such as Brazil and Russia in order to pick it up for a fraction of the price.

Ultimately it was the developers and publishers that were losing out when it came to said exploits, but clearly Steam users can’t be blamed for seeking out the cheapest deals. The number of territories the region-locking is said to affect is still undetermined, but it appears as if Russia and its neighbouring countries, Indonesia, and Brazil have all been affected. [More]

Hatred Returns to Steam Greenlight, With An Alleged Apology From Gabe Newell

Written by Sam Welch on 17 December 2014 at 12:45

Hatred, the unbound look at dissatisfaction (to put it mildly) from Destructive Creations had been up on Steam Greenlight for just a few hours when Valve’s service opted to remove it yesterday. But today the decision has been overturned, and the contentious game is back.

Whether this news is surprising or not, considering the continued availability on steam of comparable games like Postal 2 and Manhunt, is clearly a topic for debate, and we’re eager to let you get stuck back in. Perhaps the more surprising news though is that according to Destructive Creations, it was Valve boss Gabe Newell himself who reversed Hatred’s removal from Greenlight. [More]
