Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer Released

Blizzard announces the release of the Rise of the Necromancer expansion for Diablo III. This resurrects the Necromancer, the very popular playable class from Diablo II. This post has the patch notes for a new version 2.6.0 patch for the action/RPG to support the new release. Here's word:

Necromancers are grim spellcasters who draw upon the power of blood and bone and raise terrifying armies of undead minions from the remains of their vanquished foes. These brooding men and women are masters of the dark arts who seek to preserve the balance between the forces of life and death in Sanctuary—even if it requires detonating several thousand demon corpses along the way.

In addition to a new class, the Rise of the Necromancer pack contains a macabre assortment of curiosities to support any aspiring practitioner of forbidden magic, including:

  • The grotesque Half-formed Golem in-game pet
  • Cosmetic Wings of the Crypt Guardian for all your Diablo III characters
  • Two additional character slots
  • Two stash tabs (PC only)
  • Necromancer portrait, banner, sigil, and accent, and Blood Master pennant

Acolytes of the dark arts can also unearth the most closely guarded secrets of the Priests of Rathma by studying the Book of the Necromancer at Diablo3.com/Necro. This archive chronicles the shadowy history of the necromancers and contains a grimoire of their spells, runes, weapons, and armor—an ideal resource for anyone who plans to take the necromancer through the challenges that comprise the Season 11 journey, beginning July 20.

Raf Colantonio Leaving Arkane

There's a message from Raphael Colantonio on Bethesda.net where the founder and president of Arkane Studios announces he's leaving the company. Here's what he says:

The last 18 years have been an amazing adventure - from starting Arkane in 1999, to making our first game, Arx Fatalis, to joining ZeniMax Media in 2010 and releasing the Dishonored series and Prey to critical acclaim - it is time for me to step out to spend some time with my son and reflect on what is important to me and my future.

I’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the best and brightest people in the industry, and I feel extremely lucky to have been part of this journey with everyone at Arkane.

I’ve lived many magical moments. I’ve also been through the hard times. But, I can say that joining ZeniMax took things to the next level and gave Arkane the opportunity to emerge as a world-class studio. ZenIMax enabled us to make the best games that we’ve ever made. And I know there is even more to come.

ZeniMax strongly believes in Arkane’s ability to make great games, and is committed to supporting the studio. My long-time friend and colleague, Harvey Smith, will oversee the team in Austin and I will be around for as long as necessary to ensure a smooth transition to the new management team in Lyon.

I wish the best to everyone at Arkane, Bethesda, and ZeniMax. Without a doubt I will miss everyone.

As I close, I’d like to thank the Arkane fans for their passion and support. I proudly join them as Arkane Studios' biggest champion, and I look forward to playing the extraordinary new games the studio is working on.

Magic Duels Support Ending

Apologies for missing this when it happened, but a couple of weeks ago (<excuse>during E3</excuse>) Wizards of the Coast announced they are ending support for Magic Duels, a digital offering based on the Magic: The Gathering card game (thanks Medvanis). Though the game will remain online and playable, this means it will not receive the Hour of Devastation update as previously planned. This outlined in this update about their digital plans for Magic in general, and has led to consternation on reddit here and here. The Steam Community announcement also covers the status of Duels:

As we Wizards works towards an exciting future full of awesome games and digital products, we also come to one ending. In order to make room for the next generation of Magic digital products, Amonkhet will be the last new content update for Magic Duels. Hour of Devastation will not be coming to the platform.

Our game will still be downloadable and playable, but right now our teams are focused on what’s coming next.

Thank you to all the fans who made Magic Duels what it is today – from those who talk with us on social media, to writers and video creators, and to community organizers for awesome events that show the most of what our game has to offer. Each and every one of you makes this game what it is, and we’re happy to have been with you.

You’ve been with us in the past, and we want you to see what’s in store next. If you want to be involved in the next generation of Magic digital games, make sure you sign up for a Wizards Account if you don’t already have one at http://accounts.wizards.com. We’ll be using that system as a way to integrate our future products, so it’s the best way to stay involved with our future!

We’re so excited to show off what we’ve been working on next, so stay tuned for more information over the coming year.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 Trailer

UbiBlog offers another new trailer from Beyond Good and Evil 2 as part of a renewed focus on the long-awaited action/adventure prequel. The clip introduces how crews work in the game, and why you will want one. Here's word:

Beyond Good and Evil 2 has emerged as one of the biggest surprises of E3 2017. While much of the game is still under wraps, the developers at Ubisoft Montpellier have been pulling back the veil little by little since the trailer at Ubisoft’s press conference. In this video, UbiBlog’s Chris Watters chats with Story Content Director Gabrielle Shrager and Associate Creative Director Emile Morel to learn more about the game’s characters and vehicles, respectively.

Serial Cleaner Next Month

Publisher Curve Digital and developer iFun4all announce plans for a July 14th release of the PC editions of Serial Cleaner, the upcoming game that will allow you to get in touch with your inner Winston Wolfe that's currently in early access on Steam. On that date the game will come to Windows, Linux, and macOS, as well as Xbox One (the PlayStation 4 edition will precede them on November 11th). The news comes with a new live-action trailer that conveys the game's emphasis on stealthy action. Here's word:

Set in the 1970s, Serial Cleaner has players sneak around bloody crime scenes to clean up incriminating evidence by disposing of bodies, covering up bloodstains and hiding murder weapons all while avoiding the police. To succeed players must explore, experiment and make swift decisions in order to avoid police detection. Get caught and players earn a black mark on their protagonist’s career.

“Serial Cleaner is the perfect game for anyone wanting to challenge themselves and their stealth skills,” said Krzysztof Zięba, designer and writer at iFun4all. “The game is tough, but fair, so players need to plan their moves accordingly and improvise on the fly in order to avoid the police.”

In Serial Cleaner players can partake in Story Mode where they will play a 20-level campaign to discover the Cleaner’s backstory and discover a crazy cast of characters, including his mother. Players can also test their skills in Challenge Mode, which has players compete in a bevy of nail-bitingly hard modes such as Drunk Mode and a mode where they won't be able to see an enemy's vision cones.

Players must also be wary of their environment as the game uses real-world data to modify levels accordingly with the current time of day in a player’s whereabouts. Noise detection and “sneakability” will vary between night and day, and mean the difference between freedom and jail.

Serial Cleaner is currently available as a prototype in Steam Early Access and at launch will have hours of additional content, including new levels, game modes and much more.

Super Cloudbuilt Next Month

Publisher Double Eleven and developer Coilworks announce a July 25th release date for the Windows edition of Super Cloudbuilt, their "parkour platformer." A new trailer offers a look at the game to celebrate the news, and here are some more details:

Developer Coilworks and publisher Double Eleven announced today that Super Cloudbuilt, the blazing-fast sci-fi parkour platformer, will make the leap to PlayStation 4® and Windows PC via Steam on July 25th, with an arrival on Xbox One, the all-in-one entertainment system from Microsoft, following on July 28th.

Pre-orders in the U.S. are coming soon on PlayStation 4, and anyone who opts for the head-start will gain access to a demo which includes a tutorial, three levels from the full game and the Playground practice arena. With Super Cloudbuilt’s emphasis on shaving off tenths of a second to reach the top of each stage’s leaderboard, the demo is a fantastic chance to start discovering routes to stay ahead of the competition.

Originally launched on PC in 2014 as Cloudbuilt, Coilworks and Double Eleven have fully remastered the experience, from enhancements to base mechanics to the stunning visuals throughout the game’s futuristic setting.

Super Cloudbuilt challenges players to guide Demi, a young soldier who awakens in a stretch of overgrown ruins, through stages demanding split-second platforming precision and a steady hand with Demi’s blaster above a bottomless void. Demi learns more about her new surroundings as players hurtle their way through this world toward one of the game’s multiple endings.

Between its Story, Ranked and Rush modes, alternate visual styles, and a total of 177 distinct challenges, Super Cloudbuilt offers a wealth of content for players to chase incredible clear times in, whether they’re keen on improving their own records or topping those of their leaderboard rivals.|

Police Simulator 18 This Year

Publisher astragon Entertainment announces Police Simulator 18 is the new title of the game they announced last year under the title Police Simulator - Law Enforcement. This is expected before the end of this year, and the news includes some new details on what to expect:

Dazzling blue lights, high-speed emergency drives and exciting investigative work: Last August publisher astragon Entertainment and Portuguese developer Big Moon Interactive first announced a new police simulation game, which will let players experience the exciting day-to-day policework of a real US police officer, under the working title Police Simulator – Law Enforcement. Today, astragon is very happy to show some first screenshots of the game which will be released as Police Simulator 18 in retail and as digital download at the end of 2017.

In Police Simulator 18 the player will slip into the role of a real US police officer – either male or female – and discover the interesting challenges and varied tasks that lie waiting for him in the streets of the sprawling US city of Loston Bay. The player can choose to go on patrol through three different city districts either alone in the game’s single player mode or together with a friend in the cooperative two-person multiplayer mode. The extremely expansive - and thanks to the use of the Unreal® Engine 4 very lifelike – metropolis can be freely explored by the player either on foot or in one of three distinct patrol cars.

In addition to these police cars with their fully functional cockpits the virtual cop will of course also be able to use a broad range of authentic police equipment such as safety vests, handcuffs, flashlights, firearms and more.

Police Simulator 18 will be released for PC at the end of 2017. More information about the game will be coming soon.

SteamWorld Dig 2 Digs Steam Too

Steam News announces SteamWorld Dig 2 is coming to Windows, macOS, and Linux later this year. The sequel was only announced for Nintendo Switch, but with that title, not making this move would be unsteamly. The game's Steam page says to expect it in late summer/early fall. Here's the announcement:

It’s my absolute pleasure to announce that SteamWorld Dig 2 is coming to Steam for Windows, Mac and Linux in 2017. Due to popular demand from fans of the original, we’re (finally) revisiting the mysterious and unresolved setting for SteamWorld Dig.

Here's the official game description:

Agents of MAYHEM Trailer

A new trailer from Agents of MAYHEM introduces more characters from the upcoming open-world action game. The clip shows off "the bombshells." a pair of hotties and their soccer hooligan buddy. This is a mix of 2D and 3D cinematics, complete with narration featuring a fromagey accent. Here's word:

Don’t be fooled by Joule’s beautiful, sweet demeanor; behind the high fashion lies a mind of robotic engineering genius that makes her equally as comfortable walking the runways in stilettos as engineering deployable murder turrets. With her Master Programmer ability, Joule is the perfect complement to Rama. As the world’s foremost immunologist, Rama uses her Deadshot ability to gain precision the more she charges her bow. Her weapon class lends her the shield buster status, allowing Rama to deal bonus damage to shields and pierce targets protected by hard shields. No team is complete without a resident futball-obsessed lunatic; Redcard wields his Hooligan weapon to pierce the skin of his unfortunate enemies, precisely hitting them with his close-range charge attacks to clear the crowd.

When circumstances are at their most dire, when the pressure is at its absolute utmost, when the only solution is to send in the big guns, call in the Bombshells.

Star Citizen Bank Loan Follow-up

A post on the Roberts Space Industries website reacts to the report that Cloud Imperium Games secured a bank loan that lead to some headlines stating that "the bank" now owns Star Citizen, their crowdfunded space game. They say the loan is just some accounting wizardry to avoid losing money on international currency conversion, and the game is not collateral in this. Here's the post:

We have noticed the speculations created by a posting on the website of UK’s Company House with respect to Coutt’s security for our UK Tax Rebate advance, and we would like to provide you with the following insight to help prevent some of the misinformation we have seen.

Our UK companies are entitled to a Government Game tax credit rebate which we earn every month on the Squadron 42 development. These rebates are payable by the UK Government in the fall of the next following year when we file our tax returns. Foundry 42 and its parent company Cloud Imperium Games UK Ltd. have elected to partner with Coutts, a highly regarded, very selective, and specialized UK banking institution, to obtain a regular advance against this rebate, which will allow us to avoid converting unnecessarily other currencies into GBP. We obviously incur a significant part of our expenditures in GBP while our collections are mostly in USD and EUR. Given today's low interest rates versus the ongoing and uncertain currency fluctuations, this is simply a smart money management move, which we implemented upon recommendation of our financial advisors.

The collateral granted in connection with this discounting loan is absolutely standard and pertains to our UK operation only, which develops Squadron 42. As a careful review of the security will show and contrary to some irresponsible and misleading reports, the collateral specifically excludes “Star Citizen.” The UK Government rebate entitlement, which is audited and certified by our outside auditors on a quarterly basis, is the prime collateral. Per standard procedure in banking, our UK companies of course stand behind the loan and guarantee repayment which, however, given the reliability of the discounted asset (a UK Government payment) is a formality and nothing else. This security does not affect our UK companies’ ownership and control of their assets. Obviously, the UK Government will not default on its rebate obligations which will be used for repayment, and even then the UK companies have ample assets to repay the loan, even in such an eventuality which is of course unthinkable.

This should clarify the matter. Thank you.

Quake Champions Coming to Steam

A post on the Bethesda.net forums say that Quake Champions will come to Steam when the multiplayer shooter is released (thanks PCGamesN). Here's word:

You will still be required to have a linked Bethesda.net account, but users playing the game from Steam will not go through the Bethesda.net launcher.

Out of the Blue

A couple of questions rolled in about which edition of Blade Runner I watched. The answer is the "Final Cut," which is one of many. The special edition I have includes a few of these. It seemed important somehow to have all of them, just like I have a bunch of versions of Brazil in the collection I have of that. The weird thing is that the reason there are many versions of some films is because of botched theatrical versions dictated by movie execs. So I'm not sure why I have the originals if those are the ones you don't want to watch. Weird.
