First up, it’s not
huge news, but a new update has been released to DayZ’s experimental servers,
introducing a few technical changes and some changes to popular weapons and
common animations. More specifically, a number of building mechanics have been
addressed, new spawns have been placed and slight tweaks to loot regularities
have been made. For those unfamiliar with the process, Bohemia Interactive
implements new patches on select experimental servers before giving it a wider
release, so standard players can expect to see the changes soon.
At this point a State
of Decay MMO is one of those things where the only thing not confirming its
existence is an actual announcement from Microsoft. The rumor mill’s been a
buzz today after Patrick Wyatt, co-founder of ArenaNet and En Masse
Entertainment joined the staff of Undead Labs and released a statement saying,
“I can’t talk anything about what I’m working
on here at Undead Labs … yet. … But … I specialize in developing really big
multiplayer games. So I guess maybe I’ll be working on something like that, at
least as soon as I get one of the cool lab coats everyone around here has.” So there you go, cryptic and yet not really
so. Make sure to keep an eye out for any announcements. We’ll let you guys know
as soon as we hear more.
And finally, the big
news of the day comes courtesy of SOE with the announcement that EverQuest Next
Landmark’s Alpha is finally and officially live! Purchasers of either of the
top two tiers of the EQNL founder’s packs can get their start in the sandbox
world and begin giving feedback that is crucial to the future of the game. We
had a chance to try out the game yesterday and I wont go into it in-depth here, but I’m cautiously
optimistic for everything that the game has to offer. We were told that the
game is currently about 60% complete, the tools for creation need some refining
and there is a steep learning curve attached to it, but the potential for what
can be created is absolutely off the charts. Those who have come to love Minecraft
and are looking for sort of the next step in terms of creation and complexity
should definitely look into this. Kirk and I each tell about our experiences
with the alpha which you can find in a separate video, linked over my face and
below, so be sure to check that out if you want to know more!
