Epic Games has recently revealed that the free-to-play launch of the Save the World portion of the game will not be happening in 2018 but early next year at the earliest. The delay is in order to to provide more time for the team to “get this right” and to improve a number of systems and features. To thank players for their support, any player logging in during the Fortnitemares Event will receive two heroes for free: Brainiac and Skull Ranger Ramirez. In addition, those who want to “start playing right now”, Save the World is 50% off in all editions including Standard, Deluxe, Super Deluxe and Limited Founder’s Packs.

Its finally here! The Western version of the highly anticipated fantasy MMORPG Bless Online had its founders launch on May 28, 2018. Players willing to pay $40, $70, or $150 for the various Founders' Pack flocked on to the single server on launch day. The server soon crashed and NeoWiz was forced to add additional servers. This process repeated itself several times throughout launch day until servers finally stabilized by the next day. More patient players can wait until May 30, now only a day away, and grab the game for $30 and skip the initial server stability issues. These patient players will also have the benefit of various first impressions to help guide their purchase decision. Despite being heavily hyped, the general consensus among the MMORPG community is that Bless Online proved to be a disappointment. Bless Online is built on the Unreal 3 engine, originally released in 2007, and DirectX9, a version of Microsoft's graphics API initially released in 2002. The archaic software … [Read more...] about The Weekly Raid: What Are Your Bless Online First Impressions?
Fortnite's PUBG is going F2P on September 26. Their original plan was to make the entire Fortnite game F2P after selling early-access founders packs. And yes, in case you're confused, they also sold physical copies of the game as well. How that makes sense for a game going F2P is really beyond me, but that's our industry today. Epic Games is pivoting pretty fast. They're moving away from the base game (which sucks) toward the PUBG-Like Battle Royale game which actually has a lot more potential. It's smart. According to the official release, squad mode is also coming 9/26. That's pretty cool. Some of my early feedback of the "test" version is: The maps needs more development because it feels sparse and empty (though I get it's meant to be built up in a way) Vehicles would be fun (and are being conceptualized by the dev team) I want the map bigger if there will be vehicles and if parachuting remains the same where you travel further horizontally More maps and variety would be nice too … [Read more...] about Fortnite PUBG-Like Battle Royale is F2P September 26
