Dead Island: Epidemic Shutting Down, Neverwinter, DarkScape and more! | The XP 9.18.2015

What’s up Attackers, Kirk here and welcome to the September 18th edition of The XP. On today’s show we’re going to cover Dead Island Epidemic Closing Down, Everquest Expansions announced, Neverwinter, WIldstar and a new Runescape? That and more on today’s episode!

Earlier this week Deep Silver announced that they are ceasing further development on their Dead Island Zombie MOBA, or ZOMBA, Dead Island: Epidemic. The team stated that they have been evaluating feedback and criticism from players over the past few months and their final conclusion is apparently, it’s not working. The servers will be shut down for good on October 15th, with very large discounts on characters and boosts until then. No word on whether or not they will be refunding players for currency spent like many games have before them, but from the announcement’s wording, it seems not.

Carbine Studios continues to release the many upcoming changes to Wildstar in anticipation of its free to play conversion that will take place later this month. This week the new crafting system was revealed which brings changes to the four tradeskills that use their Circuit Board Crafting technologies, which allow you to craft items with stats. The goal with changing tradeskills in the free to play update is to smartly integrate new stat changes to keep it deep and rewarding, but not as complicated, which was a complaint that many had with the existing system. I don’t have 20 minutes to go over all the changes, so check out Wildstars website if you want the details!

Neverwinter’s Stronghold Update which brings the much anticipated guild vs. guild combat has finally gone live this week, and it’s major selling point, giving war-oriented guilds the opportunity to wreak havock on other guilds halls for honor, glory and loot, is now ready for players to enjoy. The guild battles which feature 20v20 skirmishes that combine two stronghold maps into one, (best way to describe it as MOBA-like with three lanes) will let guild members earn upgrades to guild halls and improve offensive and defensive capabilities to their members for winning. The update went live on September 15th, so what are you waiting for?

Daybreak Games announced that both EverQuest and EverQuest II would be seeing brand new expansions that will be fully revealed during a live-stream event on October 1st on Twitch. What we know at this point is that both titles will be seeing full expansions which we assume will mean new raids, new quests, new and updated zones and more. Come October first we’ll have much more info and we’ll keep you updated then!

Lastly I wanted to bring up DarkScape which is what, RuneScape but darker? No? Maybe? Let’s see. Umm .. DarkScape is an experimental sandbox MMO where open-world PvP and ruthless trade wars are the name of the day. Get it now? DarkScape is a brand new game, but not really, cause you need RuneScape to play it, it’s more of a game within in a game. Easiest way for me to describe it is RuneScape with PvP everywhere in Legacy Mode. There are three regions that are separated into different risk levels which have different loot drops and such. If you know more about it, or have played it, comment below and let us know what you think!

That’s all I’ve got for you today, thanks for watching, be sure to subscribe, have a great weekend and we’ll see you in the next video. Bye!

Deep Silver recently announced the beginning of the closed
beta sign-ups for its upcoming zombie-themed MOBA game based on the Dead Island
Franchise, Dead Island Epidemic.  The
game was first announced in August of last year, but we’ve seen very little
from the developer since then. 
Apparently the Alpha test went well so they are ready to bring min more
players to help make Epidemic the best possible ZOMBA, Zombie MOBA,
possible.  With a promise of fast-paced
action driven combat where players battle it out for control of vital supply
points, the Dead Island MOBA is one I am looking forward to.

I guess the popular thing nowadays is to sell alpha access
to your game, and roll in the cash.  At
least that’s what it seems like with the critical success of both the DayZ
Standalone’s alpha and now Rust, who reached one million in sales.  A twitter post from the creator, Garry Newman
revealed that Rust hit 1 million units sold since its release in December.  Which got me thinking.  Do you guys like the fact that games are
releasing and selling Alpha access to the public?  Have you bought DayZ or Rust or EverQuest
Next Landmark or any of the other games selling Alpha access?  Let me know below!

And lastly, one of our fans finally sent us some news!  We’ve been advertising to you for weeks that
we don’t know everything going on in the MMO world, so please send us any
stories.  MMO Serbia let us know that a
new game from a Serbian Developer, of course, has begun asking for players to
register for Alpha keys.  Awakening of
Heroes, a MOBA game in which a bunch of ordinary folks become heroes is asking
for Alpha sign-ups on its website.  What
do we know about the game?  Well, there’s
not much, a Video is coming soon and there is some info on a few of the heroes
of the game, which include a grandma, a schoolboy, a butcher and a chick with a
whip.  Check out awakening of
