Destiny 2 PC Rumors

Kotaku reports a rumor that Destiny 2 will be coming to PCs, following the console exclusivity of the first installment in the shooter series. This started off with a post on NeoGAF saying this news was spied on laptops by a friend from Activision, and that High Moon and Vicarious Visions are involved. The rest of this comes from Kotaku, where they say this jibes with rumors they heard a few weeks ago about Bungie's plans. That article goes on to give more purported details about the unconfirmed project, and says it is coming towards the end of next year.

Heroes of the Storm Adds Zarya & New Map

A new patch is now live in Heroes of the Storm, updating Blizzard's MOBA to version 20.2.46690. This includes balance changes and bug fixes, adds the new Warhead Junction map, and introduces the newest hero, Overwatch's Zarya. There's also a Zarya Hero Week profile with a look at the new character and a hero spotlight video. Here's word: "Aleksandra Zaryanova is one of the world's strongest women, a decorated veteran in the war against the Siberian omnium, and walking devastation with a particle cannon. Boldly defying gravity in the gym and expertly manipulating it on the battlefield, Zarya, Defender of Russia, will lift your team to new heights as the newest Hero to join the Nexus!"

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Tools Beta

Beta versions of the mapping and modding tools for Call of Duty: Black Ops III are now available in open beta (thanks DSOGaming). These will allow the creation of custom content for the futuristic shooter sequel, and also include a beta of their unranked server browser. Here's word:

In April, we began rolling out invitations to members of the PC modding community to participate in our Closed Alpha program. Months of testing, teamwork, iteration, updates, and refinements later, we’re pleased to announce that today marks the beginning of our Open Beta on PC!

Concluding our Alpha phase means that we’ve passed step one – there’s still work to be done, and with the start of the Open Beta we’re excited to begin the next phase of development…

Opening access to modding and mapping tools to a wider audience will allow us to more effectively address bugs, add polish, and move closer to a complete suite of PC features. While these tools are most certainly for the community, they wouldn’t be possible without the community itself, which is why we’re grateful for your patience and participation.

In the coming months, we plan to continue to work on enhancing the user experience and the ability to create modded content. The Open Beta will include an Unranked Server Browser that will allow users running mods to connect to each other’s custom game lobbies. The Unranked Dedicated Server files are still under development and their intended release is currently TBD. You can explore maps/mods created by the community in the Steam Workshop. There you can see some of the content developed during the Closed Alpha.

King's Quest - Chapter 4: Snow Place Like Home

Sierra announces the launch of King's Quest - Chapter 4: Snow Place Like Home for Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. This sets the stage for the upcoming concluding episode in the new King's Quest series. Here's a launch trailer, and here's word on the new installment:

Sierra™ has launched King’s Quest™ - Chapter 4: Snow Place Like Home, the penultimate installment in the new King’s Quest™ series, for the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC via Steam.

While working together to solve the colossal challenges of the frigid Ice Palace, Graham must wrestle with the mystery of what happened to his child during all those years apart.

Developed by The Odd Gentlemen, the new King’s Quest is the highly celebrated reimagining of one of adventure gaming’s founding franchises, featuring the same classic spirit of wit and wonder that launched the series over 30 years ago. Join Graham and his curious granddaughter, Gwendolyn, on a journey back through a life of daring, danger and discovery, experiencing firsthand the greatest untold trials and triumphs of his legendary reign.

Bethesda.net Mod Comment Moderation

Bethesda.net announces the addition of tools for mod authors to disable comments on their modifications and to delete specific comments should they so choose. They say this gives modders "greater ability to manage their content." Here's more on upcoming changes to how mods are presented:

We’re pleased to release several new tools for mod authors:

  • Disable comments on your mod, blocking further discussion.
  • Delete specific or all comments on your mods.

This should give modders greater ability to manage their content. We’ve improved the backend moderation tools as well, allowing us to better handle reported problems. Let us know what you think of these improvements. We’re also always interested in further suggestions to improve the Mods platform, and better empower modders.

Additionally, over the next few weeks we will be migrating some data related to Ratings and Followers. You may see rating numbers fluctuate a bit, but they should catch up. Ratings will now use a new, weighted average system for sorting by ‘Highest Rated’ – this has taken immediate effect with the ‘All Time’ filter. ‘Weekly’ and ‘Monthly’ will eventually update to the new ratings system, as well.

Office Freakout Released

Office Freakout is now available on Steam, offering a Windows simulation of the hurting you may or may not be dying to unleash on your workplace. This trailer shows off some of the anger mismanagement this involves, and here's a bit on the game:

Lay waste to anything in your path (including robot security guards) to build your “rage meter.” In rage mode, you will have access to a variety of weapons to amp up your destructive capability. Take the traditional method of smashing things with a baseball bat -- or for a more artistic approach, use the mythical Golden Poo!

Pick up, punch, and destroy everything in sight. The more you rage, the more you’ll increase your rank and unlock more tools of destruction. In need of a more effective flinging device? The Grabbity Gun gets the job done with ruthless precision. Surrounded by guards and need a quick boost of power? Drink a soda to trigger special perks! When 90% of the environment is destructible, the possibilities are endless.

Battlefield 1 Single-Player Details & Trailer

The Battlefield website has a new feature on "the single player of Battlefield 1" (thanks ASLayerAODsk) though the omitted hyphen probably doesn't really mean they expect the game to sell only one copy. Their look at the single-player aspect of the upcoming World War I shooter includes this trailer with a cinematic look at its arms and characters. This will include seeing through the eyes of several different characters and encountering historical figures. Here's a bit:

You’ll also get to know real-life historical figures playing Battlefield 1 single player. A romantic and somewhat controversial character, Lawrence of Arabia is a name many recognize. Right up there with The Red Baron, Lawrence is one of the most iconic World War 1 names and I hope players will find it fascinating to spend time with this character.

Facing off with a technically superior enemy, Lawrence is put in a true underdog situation in Battlefield 1. The Ottoman Empire has a giant armored train called The Canavar – or “beast” in Turkish – equipped with a huge artillery piece that can strike from miles away. The Empire’s devastating artillery engages rebel forces – who are wielding rifles from horseback.

In Battlefield 1, you play an Arab rebel that is depicted as Lawrence’s right hand. This character needs to use her resourceful playstyle to scout out enemy encampments, liberate the equipment needed, and draw the armored train out to a final confrontation. Play it loud, quiet, long-range, close-up, on your horse, or in an appropriate vehicle – it’s up to you.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 Teased?

An Instagram post from Michel Ancel offers a teaser image that's refueled ongoing speculation about possible plans for Beyond Good & Evil 2 (thanks VideoGamer). Nothing is concrete, but his caption helps fan the flames. He says, "lSomewhere in system 4 ... - Thanks #ubisoft for making this possible !" The original Beyond Good & Evil is an action/adventure released in late 2003, and there has been on-and-off talk about another installment since.

Hitman Episode 5 Released

Freedom Fighters, the fifth episode of Hitman is now available for Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Word is: "In HITMAN Episode 5: Colorado, Agent 47 will take on his toughest assignment yet; an intense infiltration mission on a farm compound that has been converted into a private militia training camp." This post has all the details and release notes for the patch. Here's word:

HITMAN: Episode 5 Colorado releases worldwide across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on September 27th at 13:00 CEST / 4AM PDT.

Starting at 11am CEST on September 27th, the HITMAN servers will be down for maintenance as we prepare for releasing Episode 5. During the maintenance period, all players will receive a mandatory game update of around 5-7GB, depending on platform.

Battles of Norghan Released

Battles of Norghan is now available on Steam, offering a sports management and strategy game for Windows. This is set in ancient times where you must recruit, train, and equip a roster of gladiators. This trailer offers a look at the game, which is 10% off for the next week. Here's a description:

Battles of Norghan is a unique gladiatorial management and strategy game where you not only must recruit, train, and equip fantasy gladiators, but also control them on a tactical grid in turn-based combat. This game has a lot of depth and replayability.

Imagine a football manager game with fantasy world creatures such as orcs, drakes and minotaurs and turn-based strategy battles instead of football matches.

Recruit mercenaries from 22 different fantasy races and classes and manage dozens of fighters as they battle in a variety of different terrains against easy to highly intelligent AI or other player-controlled clans.

Train and hone each fighter’s skill through monthly training as well as directly in combat. Build secondary skills such as dodging, shield blocking and dual wielding as well as attributes such as strength, intelligence, hit points, and magic points. There are 200 items and 42 spells available to equip your gladiators, including armors, bows, weapons, magical staves, and more! As each combatant grows with your clan they will age as well and eventually retire. Careful planning and management of your clan can ensure you never have an off season.

Clustertruck Rolls

Clustertruck is now available on Steam, offering a Windows and OS X physics-based platformer. This trailer shows off the fast trucking action this includes. Word is: "To remind you, Supertruck was a demo of the Superhot-inspired game mode within Clustertruck. The full game features many more game modes and abilities." Here's a rundown on the launch:

I want to take a moment and talk about some of the exciting features we'll have on launch

  • Replays allow you to see ghosts of players who have beaten levels faster than you. I found myself playing levels over and over again chasing ghosts of other players. While the truck simulation is different between you and the ghost, it's still amazing to see what others have been able to pull off.
  • Workshop Level Editor allows you to create, share, and play user levels. We've seen some fantastic -- and unintentional uses -- of the editor, and are excited to see what you come up with. The weird part for me is that you can pay great parkour levels that don't require trucks.
  • A full-on Single Player Campaign with tons of replayability -- you've seen the levels, and there's a lot of them. Aside from the replays feature that puts ghosts in for you to compete against, there are a ton of modifiers and abilities at your disposal.

We've already talked about Twitch Integration in a previous post, and there's a reason we're doing it. Because everything ends up at TwitchCon!

Super Dungeon Bros in Brovember

Wired productions announces a November 1st release date for Super Dungeon Bros, React Games' upcoming co-op brawler for Windows and consoles. A new trailer accompanies the announcement with a look at the bros in action. Here are details on the game, including word that cross-platform multiplayer support will come after the release:

In the multiplayer-centric Super Dungeon Bros, a band of heavy metal heroes are summoned to embark on a quest from the Gods of Rock. Their mission: to navigate the fantasy realm of Rökheim and seek out epic loot, vanquish hordes of evil undead and uncover the legends of long lost fabled rock stars! Featuring captivating, laugh out loud action and adventure, fans can play on or offline with four bros as they fling their friends onto far off ledges and distant trap triggers, or unleash their best tag team tactics with the ultimate bro-op offensive.

Three unique and challenging worlds await the brave ones as they explore the rock-themed realm of Rökheim and dive deep into the worlds of Cryptheim (an underground dungeon complex), Chillheim (a brewery built upon a natural brew geyser) and Bogheim (a sprawling jungle filled with poisonous plants and animals). Players will never rock the same dungeon twice thanks to the random room generation AI, and near-endless dungeon combinations!

Cross-platform online multiplayer is now scheduled for a post-launch release with further details to be announced soon.

More Star Citizen vs Derek Smart

The 24-Year Feud That Has Dogged Star Citizen on Kotaku UK takes a look at the hostilities between the Star Citizen project and former backer and current critic Derek Smart. This is a long form piece that dredges up some of the checkered past of both Smart and Chris Roberts. There's also this Top 10 Broken Promises In Games video on Shacknews (thanks nin). This uses about half its run-time to knock Star Citizen, its number one entry. They use third-party quotes to make their point, extensively quoting Derek Smart for their presentation.

Overwatch Symmetra Changes Next Month

Business Insider quotes Blizzard's Jeff Kaplan explaining plans to change Symmetra, Overwatch's least used character (thanks VG247). He calls her a situational pick, and says that's not their intent for any of the characters in the multiplayer shooter. He says she's "definitely on our list, but I don’t think we’ll see a change go live until probably some time in November." Here's his explanation:

"Now, a character being that situational is not really desirable to us, so even though I can kind of justify why it happens, that doesn’t mean that I believe that it’s right. So Symmetra is a hero who’s on our list right now to take a good look at and really investigate."

So, what kinds of changes can players expect? Kaplan didn't offer any specifics, but it sounds like they'll be pretty substantial.

"I don’t have anything really specific to talk about right now, other than she is kind of an internal project right now," said Kaplan. "She is a hero we’d like to make some changes to. I think those changes wouldn’t see the light of day until November, though, because we want to do a bunch of internal testing. It’s one thing when we do something [minor] — like, we have a change to Junkrat on the [Public Test Realm] where his Ultimate activates faster, but it’s a very incremental, safe change — whereas the type of changes we think need to happen to Symmetra require a lot more internal testing and discussion."

MINECRAFT Exploration Update Plans

The Mojang website has details on an upcoming patch for MINECRAFT that will update the Windows and OS X editions of the game to version 1.11. They call this the Exploration Update, though it's unusual for to name a patch with so many decimal places. They promise a full change log on Wednesday, and in the meantime offer a few details:

The update introduces the Illagers - a new bunch of mobs who inhabit Woodland Mansions. They’re a mean lot who attack intruders with deadly magic and summon mischievous flying imps called Vexes.

True to the update’s name, you can now buy maps from village Cartographers which will lead you to Ocean Monuments and Woodland Mansions. There be treasure!

You will also be able to manage your bloated inventory with Shulker Boxes - special chests that retain their contents even when knocked down.

And let’s not forget the fluffiest of 1.11’s additions: llamas! They’re basically adorable mobile chests. Stick a carpet on them to make ‘em snazzy. They’ll even form caravans as you lead them across the land and attack hostile mobs with gobs of spit. Charming!

Shovel Knight Joins Yooka-Laylee

Yacht Club Games announces that their buddy Shovel Knight will be part of Yooka-Laylee, the upcoming crowdfunded 3D platformer. A new trailer shows off the Shovel Knight as well as other character from the game. Here's word:

We’re super excited to announce the blue fellow with horns will be teaming up with the green bloke with no pants! That’s right- Shovel Knight will be digging in to the highly anticipated 3D platforming collect-em-up, Yooka-Laylee! The blue borrower is quite the chameleon these days, showing up in so many cool games, he’ll surely fit right in! We’re so ecstatic for this collaboration between Yacht Club Games and Playtonic Games! Check out a little teaser below:

Whoahhh!!!! Isn’t it amazing to see Shovel Knight rendered in 3D?! It was a team effort too! Our very own Sean Velasco made all the funny noises for Shovel Knight’s voice. Is that what Shovel Knight really sounds like?

Yacht Club Games designed and built the model itself while Playtonic rigged and animated it to life. Shovel Knight sure looks comfortable in a 3D world. Who knows…maybe one day we’ll see Shovel Knight running and jumping around his very own 64-styled adventure! Wouldn’t that be neat?

We hope you all pickup Yooka-Laylee when it releases this spring and enjoy enlisting Shovel Knight’s aid on your journey to collect all of those Pagies! We know we can’t wait to jump in.

U.K. Sales Charts

Fallout 4 is the number one entry on the GFK Chart-Track PC top 30 chart for the week ending September 24th. World of Warcraft: Legion drops to number two, while The Sims 4 creeps back to number three on its way back to the top. On the all platforms chart BioShock: The Collection rules, while Destiny: The Collection is the top new entry at number four. Here's the summary of all the action:

It is no change for the Top 3 as ‘Bioshock: The Collection’ (-50%) holds on to No1 for a second week ahead of ‘PES 2017’ (-48%) at No2 and ‘NBA 2K17’ (-51%) at No3.

Another ‘collection’ has to settle for a debut at No4 with ‘Destiny: The Collection’ launched on Tuesday becoming the 3rd itineration of a title which is now 2 years old. The title bundles all four expansions including ‘Rise of Iron’ which was also launched separately via digital download on Tuesday. ‘Overwatch’ (-19%) slips one place to No5, ahead of ‘Rocket League’ (+19%) which is a non-mover at No6. ‘Fallout 4’ (+102%) jumps back in to the Top 10 at No7 boosted by a retailer promotion, while ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (+11%) remains a strong performer holding on to No8. ‘Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ (+24%) jumps 2 places, back in to the Top 10 at No9 helped by renewed sales of the PS4 hardware bundle. ‘Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End’ (-12%) almost loses its grip on the Top 10 dropping from No7 to No10. ‘Recore’ (-53%) moves out of the Top 10, down from No5 to No13, while ‘Halo 5: Guardians’ (+288%) re-appears in the chart at No23 on the back of promoted sales of the Limited Edition. Although available through a ‘play it early’ Ultimate Edition for ‘Forza Horizon 3’ and bundled early with the new Xbox One S 500GB/1TB consoles in the case of FIFA 17, both titles will chart next week as part of their official launch.

Revive Battlefield 2142

The Revive Battlefield 2142 website now offers a beta of Revive Battlefield 2142, a fan-made way of playing Battlefield 2142, the sci-fi installment in DICE's shooter series (thanks Joe). This is to replace the now defunct Gamespy multiplayer support, and while unaffiliated with EA, this is free, so hopefully this will be permitted to continue. This came out a few days ago, and while there's still no associated news post, their website shows at least one of their servers is now hosting the game.

I came up to my office this morning to find the heat on. I never adjusted the thermostat as winter ended, so it just picked up where it left off.
