The Culling, H1Z1x2, Bless Online Comes West and more! | The XP 2.5.2016

Welcome Back Attack!  Kirk here with Attack Gaming and today we’re going to finish off your week right, with a dose of MMO gaming news.  Some big stories on the show today, including what many have thought about H1Z1 for years now, Bless coming to the west, new stuff in Hearthstone, The Culling and more!  The XP starts now!

So, Daybreak Games just announced today that the zombie survival game H1Z1 will be splitting into two separate games on this upcoming February 17th, with the titles H1Z1: Just Survive, which will focus solely on the open-world-post-apocalyptic experience that the game was originally brought up on, and H1Z1: King of the Kill, which is the last player standing shooter that has become somewhat of a favorite of players over the past few months.  Players who bought into the Early Access for $19.99 will be getting both versions of the games, and all the crates, keys and items will be duplicated across both games.  The guys at Daybreak will also be splitting up the development team between the two titles and once split, the games will each cost $19.99 and will NOT be free to play at any point.  This may signal a change for Daybreak as a company going into the future.  Time will tell.

Devilian unveils a new class in its first major content update as Trion is set to release The Fury of the Tempest on February 18th in their free to play action RPG.  The Fury of the Tempest update will introduce a whip and blade wielding acrobatic warrior type character, which you can see in this iPod-esque trailer as we speak.  Trion says of The Tempest “the dynamic Tempest Class has mastered the art of blades in battle; she is skilled in both acrobatics and the transformation of the weapons she wields.”  Along with the new class, the update will increase the level cap to 54, add new gear slots as well as a new raid dungeon and two new Archdevil dungeons.  Trion is also hosting  live-stream on Twitch which begins at 2:30pm PST today, which is probably right around the time t his video is release.  So, the 50 of you who watch this video right when we release it should jump on over right now to

According to a Bless Online Fan Site a Neowiz Games Business Manager has confirmed that publishing contracts for both a European and North American release for the fantasy MMORPG Bless Online are being finalized as we speak.  Now, the important information like when the game will release and what business model will be in place were not discussed, at least not in front of the fly on the wall.  Bless Online is a medieval European inspired world that’s been torn apart by two warring factions.  The Korean open beta launched late last month after the dev team delayed the project for a number of major fixes, but an English release has been speculated for some time now after Neowiz released a trailer with English voice overs.  Stay tuned here for more details on Bless Online, should be a good one!

May 30th will be the last day that you can play in CCP’s PS3-exclusive first person sh otter, DUST 514, as the company has told us that they will be shutting the game down.  Not really a big surprise though, as I’ve heard next to nothing about DUST 514 in years, and the fact that most of it’s hardcore player base was playing EVE Online on PC, while DUST could only be played exclusively on the PS3, which was at the end of its time on its earth anyways.  The team at CCP Shanghai though has already moved on to a new project, this time it’s another first person shooter but .. for PC, GOOD!  The goal is to build a great FPS in their sci-fi universe of New Eden using the Unreal Engine 4.  The team will no doubt have much more to talk about during the EVE Fanfest this year which takes place at the end of April.

Hearthstone, Hearthstone Heart HuhStone will be introducing two new play formats coming this Spring as Blizzard this week announced the new formats for their Warcraft themed blockbuster trading card game.  The new formats will be titled Standard and Wild, which the goal to quote “keep the game fresh, exciting and accessible for years to come.”  The Standard format will be used in Play mode and will be available in Friendly Challenges, Ranked and Casual Play.  The decks in standard will be played using decks built from cards release both this year and last, and will be the format used in Hearthstone’s Championship Tour, starting this year.  The Wild format is the Hearthstone that we already know, and bears the name because quote “anything can happen” Any card you own can be used in a wild deck, and wild decks will be used to complete quests, climbs the ladder and earn Legend Rank.  Additionally, they are adding in 9 new deck slots to bring you up to 18, but only if you’ve unlocked all nine heroes.

Lastly there was a new game announced this week that seems pretty cool and something that I think a lot of you might be interested in, it’s a pretty cool concept, not super unique, and with the new H1Z1: King of the Hill game, this is basically a direct competitor, but the game is called The Culling.  The Culling is a survival based battle royale game where 16 players will be thrown together on a remote island, where they will have 20 minutes to craft weapons, set traps and ultimately come down to one player outlasting all the rest.  Think The Hunger Games, that’s what immediately comes to mind to me.  Like many other survival games, The Culling will be entering Early Access on Steam on March 8th and you can find out more information on their newly launched website, the culling dot com.

That’s all I’ve got for you today, thank you so much for watching and supporting us here at Attack Gaming.  Throw this video a like and a subscribe if you’re not already, and we’ll see you guys next week!

Master X Master, Riders of Icarus, SNOW and more! | The XP 1.29.2016

What’s up Attackers! Happy Friday, Happy January 29th and welcome to the XP. I felt like my email was bombarded with press releases this week, literally couldn’t even look away for a minute before getting another notification for some new browser-based blah blah with a new mini-chipmunk pet in it. So as always, I’ll try to sift through the news and bring up what I think are the most interesting stories for the week here on this episode of the XP. Let’s get it started.

The Duelist January 2016 ranked season will be coming to an end shortly, and for those of you who reach Silver, Gold, Diamond or S-Rank will earn some extra rewards, in the form of epic, legendary or rare card, sorry, card. You get one card, except S-Rank, who gets the monthly common and a random legendary. For those of you not in the know about Duelist, it’s a free to play, tactical turn-based strategy game. We’ve checked the game out on this channel, and had a pretty fun time, and you can too, like I said, it’s free, so type Duelyst, with a y, into your google box and find it.

We’ve seen very little from Gaijin Entertainment and Targem Games combat vehicle game Crossout, but a new video shows off some of the insane battles in action. The video highlights the crazy concoctions of vehicles that players can create, as well as all the explosions, and parts flying off in every which way that you can handle in any minute long stretch. Along with the video the teams have said that closed battle testing began on January 27th and will run through February 7th. You will need to have a special invitation in order to play, and there is a strict NDA that you have to sign, so I can’t say whether or not we got in or not .. YES I CAN, WE DID!! You didn’t hear it from me. You can sign up for the beta still, as there is what, 9 or so days left to play at crossout dot net slash en slash play.

Nearly two years ago, no, over two years ago, can you believe we’ve been doing this that long? Two-ish years ago a game really caught my eye, because it was about snowboarding. Now, one of my first memories from the playstation two from years and years and years ago, was this stupid little demo of a snowboarding game, I can’t remember the name of it now, and I’m too lazy to look it up, so maybe help me out in the comments, but that game was so incredibly fun, and i’d love to re-visit it. SO anyways, fast-forward, and I hear news of a free to play sports MMO, based on Snowboarding. That game, simply titled SNOW, is now finally on Steam for its open beta, starting yesterday. SNOW introduces free-roam, competitive events and leaderboards as it hits Steam, as well as the option to purchase cosmetic items to make your snowboarder look exactly how you think you’d look up on the slopes. The game is gorgeous, as you can see in the video, and also very fun to play, so go check it out on Steam now!

What is this, 2014? No .. no it’s not, but I guess it’s still cool to announce new MOBAs out into the world. I guess NCSoft has more of a name brand than company X with a MOBA that no one has seen before with some awesome new feature that we didn’t ask for. Anyways, NCSoft announced a new action MOBA this week, and I say announced because it looks like players have been able to play MXM, Master X Master, for some time now in the east. But Master X Master will be free to play, and it’s ‘unique’ feature will be the Tag System, which will allow players to swap between characters mid-combat. That’s basically what i’ve always wanted in Dota. The game already has a roster of 30 characters, including some characters from titles we’d recognize like Blade & Soul and Guild Wars 2. At this time you can sign up for the newsletter at play mxm dot com, but the teaser site doesn’t show much more than that.

Another new MMORPG was announced this week, this one is from Nexon and WeMade Entertainment and its title is Riders of Icarus. Riders of Icarus is an aerial combat MMO using flying mounts. I guess that’s not all it’s about, but that’s one of its distinguishing features. The main producer of RoI said of the game, that there are many games with dragons and other flying mounts, but they hardly ever impact battles in a meaningful and entertaining way. In Riders of Icarus, mounts truly add another level of challenge and excitement, delivering expansive vertical gameplay in addition to action-oriented ground mount combat. A local server beta test is actually going on right now, from Jan 28th to February 2nd in North America and our amigos to the south, Mexico. A larger closed beta test which will include Europe, Australia and New Zealand, will be coming at a later date.

One more story for the day. A new hero is joining the ranks of the free to play team shooter Gigantic. His name is, oh, her. Kinda hard to tell .. umm, her name is Beckett, and she is a ranged hero that focuses on being super fast and having explosive and pistols and grenades and cannons and jetpacks and all that fun stuff. With the release of Becket, the Gigantic team also announced that the closed beta test for Xbox One and Windows 10 is running 24/7 from now through the end of the weekend. AND, players can now share their experiences via streams. So even if you can’t jump into the beta for whatever reason, open up Twitch, search Gigantic and check it out for yourselves.

That’s all I’ve got for you today, please be sure to toss down a like, and if you’re not subscribed, go ahead and hit that button too, it’s free, doesn’t cost nothing, and really helps us grow the channel. Thanks again for watching, have a great gaming weekend and i’ll see you on the other side!

What’s up Attackers, Kirk here with your weekly dose of MMO news for Friday January 15th!  I’m on the road this week at a wedding in New Orleans, so you’ll notice my voice sounds different and because the hotel internet sucks so badly, I can’t download any videos of the games to put over my voice, so i’m going to use the SMITE Amaterasu first impressions video that we uploaded yesterday for something for you to look at while you listen to my suddenly weird sounding voice.  Anyways, hopefully you can put up with the small changes, and the lack of script for this week’s episode and enjoy The XP, which starts now.

HeroWarz, Granado Espada, SMITE World Championships and more! | The XP 1.8.2016

What’s up Attackers!  Kirk here with Attack Gaming and now that the Holidays are over, the crazy schedule should return back to normal, and I can get back to these weekly Friday news videos.  I really hate missing weeks, but stuff just gets in the way.  Anyways, enough chit-chat, let’s jump into business.  On this week’s episode we have changes at Gazillion, the Smite World Championships, HeroWarz, Granada Espada and more!  The XP starts now!

Fresh news out today out of Gazillion Entertainment, and I don’t know how much this will change anything with Marvel Heroes, but it’s definitely something worth mentioning quickly.  David Brevik, the CEO of Gazillion and one of the main guys behind the 3D action RPG Marvel Heroes, has ended his 6 year run with the company to pursue other opportunities.  It sounds like the move was all on his own and amicable, but I would think this hurts Gazillion more than we would think as he came from a past that includes being the head of Blizzard North, the studio that created the Diablo franchise.  Either way, good luck to David in the future!

The Smite World Championships kicked off yesterday and will continue on through Saturday January 10th when the finals do take place.  I’ve actually been watching quite a bit of the tournament so far, which has been pretty entertaining.  I’ve seen upwards of 40,000 people watching the Twitch stream at one time, which is paltry compared to League or Dota, but still, quite a nice audience for them.  The tournament is very well done so far, and very professional, on par with what we see from the larger MOBA tournaments.  A few cool things have come out from Hi-Rez so far, including announcing the Japanese pantheon coming soon, with the first goddess Ama Ter Asu and a new 3v3 joust map.  Additionally Hi-Rez released a brand new mobile game, Jetpack Fighter which is a fast-paced platformer.  I’m currently downloading Jetpack Fighter, so I hope to get a First Impressions video out to you guys soon, stay tuned.  And check out the World Championships at

Maybe this is not for you guys, I know it’s not for me, but Granado Espada an OLD school, and I do mean old, an old school MMO from IMCGames, originally released in 2007 here in the states, 2006 overseas, has just come to Steam as of yesterday.  The game is free to play, but according to many of the reviews already posted on Steam, the game is very pay to win and pretty painful to play in the late game with tons of grinding involved, or spending of your moneys.  It does seem like the early game could be pretty fun, so I may check it out myself, haven’t yet convinced myself to download it, but maybe this weekend.  Some of the more interesting reasons to check out Granado Espada would be the three person party, which lets you control 3 characters at once and the chance to choose from over 100 characters for your journey.  Let me know if you play/played Granado before in the comments below!

KOG Games is getting ready to bring their free to play Action MMO, HeroWarz to the states, and they are beginning that push by setting up a new Facebook Page and revealing a teaser site that showcases the very sexualized heroes, and a trailer that doesn’t really show anything, which you can see playing over my voice now.  HeroWarz has been available overseas for quite some time now, but the localization for Western audiences should give us more of a reason to check the game out.  KOG Games describes HeroWarz as a stand-alone MOBA based, PvP Environment that promotes competitive and fast paced action with a character line-up that goes beyond that of the standard RPG side.  That’s either some really clever and over-compensative marketing, or the best game ever .. i dunno.

Lastly, there are a couple of beta events for new MMOs coming soon, these may not be the most exciting games around, but always worth mentioning new games to check out.  Linkrealms begins its winter beta event on January 9th.  Link realms is an old-school sandbox MMORPG from indie developers Mythyn Interactive.  Also, a Zelda inspired MMORPG entered open beta this week, Twilight Rising is a 2D game that looks very much early early early Zelda-ish.  The game, even in its open beta, features over 700 unique maps and hundreds of unique items, while selecting from 4 different races and 2 classes per race.  Twilight Rising can be downloaded at  While Link Realms is at

That’s all I’ve got for you today, thanks as always for tuning in and making it all the way to the end of the video, you have leveled up!  Please like and subscribe, and we’ll see you all next week!
