Beamdog Bringing Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition to PC

about X hours ago from

Last week, Canadian developer Beamdog announced that they are bringing back the seminal D&D cRPG, Neverwinter Nights, as Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition. This version of the game is mainly the same as the Diamond Edition, but with enhanced visuals that will go all the way up to 11 (i.e., 4k).Originally released in 2002 and developed by Bioware, Neverwinter Nights is set within the fantasy world of Forgottem Realms and allowed players to experience an entire 40 hour campaign with friends. There was also a Dungeon Master client tool that allowed one player to take on the role of DM and run a custom campaign for friends. Many of these features are similar to what later games, like Sword Coast Legends and Divinity: Original Sin II, implemented within their own framework. So, if you're a fan of those titles, then Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition is likely within your wheelhouse.For longtime fans of the game, here's what Beamdog is bringing to the table to put the "Enhanced" in "Enhanced Edition":

New DLC Coming to Path of Exile on PC and Xbox One

about X hours ago from

Seems like the development team over at Grinding Gear Games never stop working. After bringing their action-RPG title, Path of Exile, to the Xbox One in August, they've got a big, free update/expansion planned to arrive next week for the PC, and then the Xbox One after that.Titled "War for the Atlas," the DLC will add new endgame content that tasks players with combating a new threat. If you're unfamiliar with Path of Exile, the "Atlas of Worlds" is a map system that allows players to face new (randomized) challenges once they've completed the main game. That entire system was added in the "Atlas of Worlds" DLC last year, and this year, with "War for the Atlas," players will find new challenges. Two forces, the Shaper and the Elder, are vying for control over the Atlas of Worlds and players will, essentially, be caught in the middle. What this means, as far as in-game content goes, is players will be able to battle for either force and allow that side to control more of the map. If the Elder controls more, he will create new bosses and, eventually, appear on the map as a new boss encounter. It's a pretty interesting idea/concept.Here are the specifics for what will be added when the DLC arrives on December for the PC (and probably a week later for the Xbox One):

Marvel Heroes Omega Servers Coming Down This Friday

Heads up to anyone who was going to hop into Marvel Heroes Omega a bit over the Thanksgiving weekend. You now have until Friday before it all comes down.According to Massively OP, the CEO of Gazillion Entertainment, the developer behind Marvel Heroes, sent a termination notice to all Gazillion employees this afternoon notifying them 1) they no longer had jobs, and 2) the servers would be coming down this Friday, November 24, instead of the originally announced date of December 31. What's more, it seems none of the employees were paid a severance or unused PTO hours. The letter, reportedly, states that the early closure is due to creditors "pulling the plug." No official statement has been released by Gazillion about this. Meanwhile, several ex-Gazillion employees have expressed their entirely understandable frustration over this situation on Twitter, thereby providing some corroboration for all this.

Starcraft II Co-Op Missions Stream Recap

Blizzard made Starcraft II free-to-play last week, and so we decided we'd hop in real quick to check out what (exactly) you can do cooperatively.

We had some technical difficulties, so part of the stream got caught off.

Enjoy Co-Op for Free Now in Starcraft II

During last week's Blizzcon, the California-based developer announced that Starcraft II, the follow-up to one of the most popular RTS games of all time, would be going free-to-play... within a limited capacity.The game, or at least parts of it, became free-to-play on November 14th. More specifically, these are the parts of it that you can play without having to spend a dime:Regarding that last point, you're free to play and level Raynor, Kerrigan, and Artanis up to the max of level 15. All other commanders will be capped at level 5 and you'll have to pay $5 to unlock them and level them further. Leveling commanders unlocks new abilities and units for them to use within a mission, so there is some stuff you won't be able to access unless you dish out the cash. The blog post on the official website for the game has a little more info for those seeking further details.
