Id Software's Marty Stratton Teases Building Co-op Campaigns With Doom's SnapMap

about X hours ago from

After watching a people play Doom multiplayer for the first time at QuakeCon, an energetic Marty Stratton, id Software's executive producer, sat down to talk to me about the state of development for this 2016 release. Stratton wouldn't go into specifics about key components that haven't been discussed yet, stating id wants to keep a few more "surprises" under lock and key until closer to launch, but did provide further details about multiplayer and the bloody executions.

You showed off a significant chunk of single player at E3, and a small tease of multiplayer here at QuakeCon. Where are you at in production?We're doing really well. Saying we're coming out spring of next year is a big deal for us because it focuses us on the home stretch. We have the alpha test for multiplayer coming up, which is super exciting because it means more people are getting their hands on the game. We're confident in the way it plays. [QuakeCon] is a great opportunity for us to get broader feedback. We do focus testing in the office, but to get a couple thousand people's hands on it here and be able to react to stuff is helpful. Single player is coming along great. SnapMap is super fun. We're feeling confident.

Play As A Backstabbing Rat Or An Item Creating Rabbit

Developer League of Geeks has announced Armello will release on September 1 of this year. After July 31, this title will disappear from Steam Early Access until its official release two months later.

Armello, a digital board game, features playable animal heroes vying to be king or queen of the land. Each of the characters possesses different strengths and weaknesses, leaving some better suited to stealth, defense, or offense. To add another wave of complexity, the boards are procedurally generated. More randomness arises in the action of the current king, a lion suffering from madness. For more details, check out our pre-alpha preview.

League of Geeks unveiled two new characters today: Zosha the female rat and Barnaby the male rabbit. Zosha fights best in the night, as she enters into stealth after each sunset. Although her low health weakens her effectiveness in head-to-head battles, her high fight power offers great potential for surprise attacks. Barnaby, on the other hand, is more balanced. Thanks to his ability to generate the perfect item when necessary, players can use him in a variety of ways.

Upgrades On The Way In The Upcoming Remake

about X hours ago from

Today brought news that Vanillaware is remaking its epic adventure for North America, and adding a new subtitle. Odin Sphere Leifthrasir (pronounced LAYV-thra-sheer) is targeting a release on PS4, PS3, and Vita.

The game will include redrawn art and in-game visuals, and supposedly we’ll also see upgrades to combat and RPG systems, although no details have been provided on that score. Here’s hoping that Vanillaware and Atlus finally find a way to address the slowdown issues that plagued the original release. In addition to gameplay and art changes, the announcement also promises new monsters and fully voiced story scenes.

Check out the trailer below.

A Lengthy Look At Fallout 4

about X hours ago from

On July 17, 2014, QuakeCon attendees were treated to an exclusive look at id Software's Doom reboot. The demo ran longer than expected, giving the people in the auditorium (many of the screaming variety) a hell of a look at this bloody shooter. Heads were severed. Bodies were chainsawed. The legacy of Doom was alive and well. Showgoers raved about the carnage, but publisher Bethesda Softworks never released the footage shown at the con. In fact, Bethesda didn't show or talk about the game again until this year's E3.

This year, Bethesda gave the people of QuakeCon another exciting exclusive: a unique and lengthy look at Fallout 4. No video recording or cameras were allowed. Security guards walked the aisles constantly, eying everyone to ensure none of this new Fallout 4 content made it any further than the auditoriums screens.

The show began with a greeting by Bethesda Game Studios' director, Todd Howard. He broke Bethesda's rule of no photography and snapped a panoramic shot of the crowd with his iPhone. Seeing most people were wearing masks of Vault Boy, which were provided by Bethesda at the door, Howard took a step back and said, "Those masks are creepy as s--t. That picture is going to replace my recurring nightmare of the Poltergeist clown."
