Bioware Holding A PAX Panel On Anthem, Implies Dragon Age And Mass Effect In The Future

Bioware Holding A PAX Panel On Anthem, Implies Dragon Age And Mass Effect In The Future

Bioware has announced in a blog post today that the critically acclaimed studio will be holding a panel at PAX West to talk about Anthem and help answer the fan's questions. Particularly, Bioware wants to address concerns about story within the game and how it fits Bioware's reputation.

"We talked briefly at EA PLAY about how the solution is called 'Our World, My Story'," Bioware GM Casey Hudson wrote in a blog post today. "In the dynamic open world, everything is experienced in real-time by all Anthem players – day/night, weather, and world-scale events that shape the ongoing narrative of the setting.  This is 'our world,' which we share as a player community.  Then when you return to Fort Tarsis, that’s actually a single-player experience, and it’s where you spend time developing relationships, making choices, and seeing consequences.  That’s the 'my story' part.   
"But even with that description I know there are many more questions about how it will work," Hudson continued. "To really go deep on this subject, we’ll be doing a panel at PAX where we’ll talk about 'our world, my story, and other big questions you’ve had about Anthem."

Perhaps most telling, however, is what Hudson writes when talking about Bioware's other projects.

Star Wars: Episode IX has begun filming, a year and a half ahead of its scheduled release date. That means fans are looking for anything to make the wait seem a little shorter, even a single picture tweeted by director JJ Abrams.

Guess what? JJ Abrams tweeted a single picture from the set!

Bittersweet starting this next chapter without Carrie, but thanks to an extraordinary cast and crew, we are ready to go. Grateful for @rianjohnson and special thanks to George Lucas for creating this incredible world and beginning a story of which we are lucky to be a part. #IX pic.twitter.com/FOfnGwVut5

The Monster Hunter World Final Fantasy Crossover Event Has Begun

The Monster Hunter World Final Fantasy Crossover Event Has Begun

Originally announced at E3, Monster Hunter World and Final Fantasy XIV are crossing over, with the Monster Hunter side getting to fight one of the series' biggest monsters. The dreaded purple Behemoth has made its way to the new world and it is a tough fight.

The Behemoth has been designed to be one of the hardest monsters in the series, with Capcom boasting that not even QA testers have been able to beat it. The monster is not only exceptionally strong and fast, it will rain down small meteors on you and your hunting party throughout the fight. When the Behemoth releases its ultimate attack, the instant-faint Ecliptic Meteor, the only way to survive is to hide under one of those meteors already on the field.

It definitely won't be easy. He's also weak to water, which is a problem with so few monsters creating strong water weapons.

Def Jam Possibly Teasing Something A New Wrestling Game

It has been just under 14 years since EA, Def Jam, and AKI Corporation got together and released Def Jam: Fight for NY, a hip-hop wrestling game that used actual artists signed with the Def Jam label as fighters in the game. The title has held kind a cult classic status since its release, but excitement has recently been swirling with Def Jam's social media teasing a return of the wrestling game.

A few weeks ago, the Def Jam Recordings Twitter account posted a mock up of a PlayStation 4 box showing a hypothetical Def Jam game and asking fans who they would like to see in the game.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy Requires An Update For Two Of The Games

Spyro Reignited Trilogy Requires An Update For Two Of The Games

Earlier today, Spyro Reignited Trilogy's website was updated to include a message about Spyro 2 and 3 requiring a separate download. This bothered fans who want to own a physical collection of the three games or people who just weren't happy about having to download games they wanted to leap into immediately.

We reached out to Activision to ask if this meant that the latter two games would just be entirely downloaded or it meant an update.

"The global launch date of Spyro Reignited Trilogy is Sept. 21; and we’re excited for fans to play all three reignited games on that day," Activision told us. "As with most games today, downloading an update after purchase is quite common. The language on packaging and on the web is to let players know the requirements for Spyro Reignited Trilogy."
