Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Will Include Tracks From The Sequel Nitro Kart

about X hours ago from

The remaster for Crash Team Racing channels much of the same energy and cartoonish personality that made the classic PS1 title such a well-loved game. Developed by Beenox, Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Refueled also manages to go a bit further than updating the original, including more content than people had anticipated. During PAX East 2019, we spent some time racing on the different tracks in Nitro-Refueled, which included the return of some tracks found from the sequel Nitro Kart.

Speaking with GameSpot at PAX, Beenox co-studio head Thomas Wilson described the approach they took with the remaster, and what sort of content they wanted to include with the game.

"With the name Nitro-Fueled, we wanted to see how we could complement the original experience," said Wilson. "We did that by adding new tracks that originated from Crash Nitro Kart, and which we decided pretty early on we were going to do that. We felt it was the right decision, and it was all about creating a more well-rounded package for fans."

PAX East 2019: Exclusive Trailer For Stylish 2.5D Stealth Game, Liberated

about X hours ago from

Atomic Wolf, the indie developer behind the Bomberman-like Mad Age & This Guy, has given us a first look at a new title called Liberated during PAX East 2019. In stark contrast to the studio's previous effort, Liberated is a stylish, narrative-driven 2.5D stealth game inspired by noir films and graphic novels.

Set in a bleak, dystopian future where the government is using technology to surveil and manipulate the public, Liberated tells the story of a group of characters who cross paths with the authoritarian police force and a violent opposition group fighting against it. The narrative is framed like a graphic novel; the game is divided up into four chapters, which are presented as four comic book issues, with story and gameplay sequences unfolding across different panels.

Throughout the course of the game, players will be faced with choices that will affect how the story is shaped and lead to entirely different endings. Among other things, players must choose whether to cooperate with the government or the opposition group. As the story unfolds, however, you'll realize the decision isn't as black-and-white as it may initially appear, and every choice you make will carry a consequence.

Arrow's Emily Bett Rickards Is Leaving The Series Early

about X hours ago from

When Arrow ends next season, it will already have lost one of its primary players. Emily Bett Rickards, who has played Felicity Smoak since Season 1, is leaving the series at the end of Season 7.

Rickards made the announcement herself on Instagram, writing, "Felicity and I are a very tight two. But after one through seven, we will be saying goodbye to you." That will leave the final 10-episode of Season 8 without the character, who also happens to be Oliver Queen's (Stephen Amell) wife, mother of his child, and--essentially--the brains of the Team Arrow operation.

What remains to be seen is how Felicity will exit the series. Throughout Season 7, a flash-forward storyline has shown she's still alive years from now, operating under the Calculator moniker her father once used. It's entirely possible that she and her soon-to-be-born child will go into hiding ahead of Season 8, as the Green Arrow prepares for his last stand.

PAX East 2019: Why Monster Hunter-Like Dauntless Is Coming To Epic Games Store Instead Of Steam

about X hours ago from

Earlier this year, Dauntless developer Phoenix Labs announced it is moving the free-to-play Monster Hunter-like RPG from its own launcher to the Epic Games Store, joining a string of other high-profile games that are skipping Steam for Epic's new storefront. According to the studio, one of the primary reasons behind the move was Epic's player-focused philosophy and its experience in offering cross-play and cross-progression between different platforms.

"One of the things that we're passionate about at Phoenix Labs--and was a part of our vision even before we had chosen to build Dauntless--was finding a way to allow players to play together," Phoenix Labs co-founder and VP Robin Mayne told GameSpot at PAX East 2019. "And so a part of our strategy for Dauntless has been worldwide servers so you can play with anyone wherever they are.
