Escape from Tarkov, Pantheon, Rising Waters, Motiga and more! | The XP 2.12.2016

What’s up Attackers! Kirk here with Attack Gaming, bringing you the latest and greatest in the world of MMO gaming news for the week ending February 12th, 2016. There was actually a ton of stuff going on this week, although most of it is pretty bland, or at least, not super interesting, like the revenue reports from companies like Neon, Activision/Blizzard, and NCSoft, or Hi-Rez opening up a new European Office in the UK, and Motiga layoffs. Actually, let’s hit on Motiga after the break. The XP starts now!

Motiga, the studio behind the yet unreleased Windows 10 and Xbox One multi-platform MOBA Gigantic has announced another round of layoffs. On Febuary 9, the studio said that it had to layoff a significant percentage of its staff. The official blog post claims the layoffs are “temporary” and can be reversed if ongoing talks with potential investors pan out. Which essentially means, give us more money please, with a shit-eating grin. Gigantic has been in development since 2010 and has only now started to open up to the public. The game’s NDA was lifted just this week, and of course we got a first impressions video up for it minutes after the NDA went way, GO US, but the Closed Beta remains invite-only. Its not surprising that Motiga has run into financial trouble after nearly six years of operation without a shipped product. What’s unfortunate is how close the studio was to the finish line when it stumbled. The MOBA market as matured since 2010, with many new entrants like Smite and Heroes of the Storm filling the cracks left by League of Legends and Dota 2. Even if the studio can’t raise additional funds, Gigantic is just too close to being finished to go dark. I’m hopeful that either Motiga or someone else will pick up the pieces, put them together, and finally ship Gigantic.

Been a bit since we’ve heard anything about Visionary Realms and Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen. Actually, last time I remember filling my mouth with that game is when they closed their Kickstarter in February 2014 after not being able to meet it’s nearly $1 million goal. But I digress. Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen has been promising to take us back to the days of old when teamwork was necessary at all times. That usually means that there must be a solid healer class somewhere in the mix. Enter the Cleric, which was announced and teased this week by the team. In the lore, the Clerics “bind themselves directly to the ancient directives of their Order, guided by the written wisdom of the Celestials of ages past.” Clerics are healers without equal. They can also buff the defense of allies by using “powerful signets, potent writs, and ethereal armors.” They wear heavy plate armor or “plate-woven raiment,” using “one-handed blunt” weapons. The use of staves has largely diminished so that they can “carry their large tomes into battle.” You can find more information about the Cleric on the official website, but the worst part is they only have one damn image of the Cleric, so I can’t even go in and make a 30 second video with cheesy music and some moving pictures to poach some YouTube views. Lame!

Escape From Tarkov made quite the entrance when it was first announced back in November. Created by Battlestate Games—the creators of Contract Wars—Escape From Tarkov is promising something different than the current shooter genre provides. In it, you complete missions for one of two warring military factions and ultimately aim to escape the city of Tarkov. There’s been only one problem as of yet—we don’t really know all that much about the game. The developers though re hoping to change that and are slowly tossing out a set of video developer diaries. The first diary covers the lengths the team has gone to to ensure realism in the handling and sound of guns, as well as motion capture, procedural animation, and several other features. It’s an interesting watch and it gets the point across that they are aiming for authenticity. You can watch the video below via the link below and check out the Beta sign-ups are ongoing on the official website, escape from tarkov dot com.

Blade and Soul’s first major content patch, Rising Waters, is now live. The expansion challenges players to face the Blackram pirates once again in the new 4-player Bloodshade Harbor instance. Players who want more of a challenge can take on the 24-player version of the instance, Nightshade Harbor. The first seven floors of another dungeon, Mushin’s Tower, are now available. This is a single-player Heroic Dungeon that will require players to face more difficult challenges floor after floor for a chance at increasingly better rewards. You begin the tower by choosing an opponent from six different opponents, each with their own fighting style. If successful, you must then pick another opponent to face before moving on to the next floor. The full list of challenges can be found on the Rising Waters mini-site. The first five Hongmoon Levels have also been added. These levels allow advancement beyond the current level cap of 45. Each Hongmoon Level will grant players more skill and stat points.

En Masse Entertainment announced today that they will be publishing C4M’s tactical, competitive RTS Battleplans on PC and mobile later this spring. Battleplans is a different kind of RTS that “splits offensive battles and defensive planning into two distinct phases of the game.” Players are tasked with laying siege to NPC or player-controlled territories that are then defended with “comprehensive defense strategies.” An assortment of heroes and units are available to aid in accomplishing this goal. The developers are already boasting “simple, intuitive controls” that allow ease of use and quick decision making. En Masse CEO Chris Lee stated that “Battleplans is a great strategy game for players interested in actually controlling the units they send into combat. It provides engaging gameplay but isn’t bogged down by micromanagement.” A Closed Beta for the PC version will be held later this month before launching on Android, iOS, and PC later this spring. You can sign up for access on the official website.

Funcom appears to be trying to usher in a new era of Anarchy Online. There’s the new rendering engine. There’s a new website. And now there’s the new Rubi-Ka region, The Reck. The Reck is part of a content update that went live this week. You can enter the region through Tir and Omni-1 Trade The primary purpose of the zone is to provide players with “camps and encounters” that help them level level their characters through “title levels 4 and 5.” The region will be accessible to anyone, but dailies will be restricted to characters in the level 90-170 range. Encounters in this region are built for players in the level 90-220 range. Many of the camps will require players to explore to find them.

That’s all I’ve got for you today. Toss this video a like and a subscribe and i’ll see you guys next week! Ciao!

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 twitch.tv/trionworlds

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!

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.
