    Croteam, the minds behind the Serious Sam franchise, has released its fourth Serious Sam-themed VR game: Serious Sam 3 VR: BFE (2017) for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

    Now available on Steam, Serious Sam 3 VR: BFE is a fast-paced shooter serving as a prequel to the original Serious Sam: The First Encounter (2001). While it’s technically a VR port of the 6-year old Serious Sam 3: BFE (2011), and not really designed from the ground-up for VR, that’s probably not going to bother a lot of hardcore first-person shooter fans as they step into the shoes of Sam for the fourth time. Taking place during an epic final struggle against Mental’s invading forces, you shoot down beasts in a way fans of the franchise will immediately resonate with; by walking up and blowing their heads off with your own two hands.

    A big difference from Croteam’s first VR game, Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope (2017), is the inclusion of artificial locomotion so you can explore the game’s expansive levels in the same vein as Croteam’s second and third Serious Sam VR games—Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter (2017) and Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter (2017).
    The game supports a few teleportation styles as well as smooth movement presets, with or without comfort mode. Also included are Croteam’s ‘advanced VR controls’, something the company says is “meant for the hardcore VR gamer.”

    “Wishes of the VR community are always in the back of our minds, and we’re very excited to round out our virtual reality offerings in order to provide them with the full Serious Sam experience,” said Croteam VR lead and all-around nice guy, Davor Hunski. “Our goal was to deliver intuitive, thrilling and fun VR games and, hopefully, we made that happen.”

    The game boasts a number of multiplayer modes like Co-op, Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Last Man Standing, Last Team Standing and Instant Kill. Supporting both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, you can bet you’ll want a room-scale tracking setup to get the most out of the 360 carnage.

    Serious Sam 3 VR: BFE normally costs $40, but is currently 10% off at $36. The offer ends November 16th.

    The new video shows off all the benefits of the latest update for the game. Details below:

    Secret Dungeon

    • Lowered Difficulty on Lv.70 ~ 89 Secret Dungeon(s) – This revamp was done so that players who are new to Secret Dungeons will have less trouble clearing them without dying multiple times; originally quite the daunting task.
    • Luto Mode is now available for Lv.90 and Up Secret Dungeons – This was done to bring players together that may be more closely geared/leveled so that the individual players should carry their own weight. In short, there should be fewer mistakes and needless wipes from under-geared players, and less trolling towards them in what used to be accidental entry to Lv.70 ~ 89 Luto Mode dungeons.
      •   - Lv. 70 ~ 89 players will be queued together unless a Lv.90+ character parties with lv.70 ~ 89 players.
      •   - All Lv.90 + characters will be queued together.
    • Instead of needing to go to a specific Village Blacksmith for Village specific Secret Dungeon Exchange or Upgrading needs, players will be able to Exchange/Upgrade all Secret Dungeon gear with any Blacksmith in any town.
    • Lowered the Upgrade costs required for Normal Secret Dungeon Gear (Grendized-Rank) so there will be less need to grind out Daily Quests when upgrading.

    Heroic Dungeon
    • Heroic Dungeons are now easier and have only 1 difficulty level.
      •   - Players that have geared themselves out with upgraded Secret Dungeon Gear will have an easier time running Heroic Dungeons.
    • New (1) Difficulty Heroic Dungeons will yield Hell Difficulty Heroic Mode loot!
      •   - Because the loot from the Hell Difficulty Heroic Dungeons has been transferred to the new, lowered difficulty structure, players will receive more significant, relevant gear. Previously, players were at a risk of getting gear that was worse than what they'd have received from Secret Dungeons

    Add's Energy Fusion Theory Dungeon
    • Daily Quests added for Add's Energy Fusion Theory Dungeon negate RNG so that players are guaranteed to receive the same amount of Energy Shards
    • For those that are extremely lucky (or unlucky) and get duplicate drops of the same Void-Type Weapons, they can now dismantle them and can get more Energy Shards

    Elrianode Dungeon
    • For some players, just experiencing the end game story could be difficult. Some weren't geared enough but wanted to just complete/experience the story of Elsword. With the new Story Mode difficulty, they can now experience the Debrian Laboratory & El Tower Defense Dungeons at a significantly lower difficulty.
      •   - The difficulty is lowered and penalties like Resurrection Limits were removed from the El Tower Defense Dungeon in Story Mode to make it easier to complete.
    • Players no longer need to complete the previous region's Epic Quest lines in order to start the Elrianode region Epic Quest lines.
      •   - This makes it easier for those that are only after the Elrianode Equipment from the Elrianode Epic Quest lines.

    Lanox, Atlas, and Elysion
    • The Lanox Epic Quest Line – Players no longer need to complete these to begin the Atlas Epic Quest line
    • Atlas Epic Quest Line – Players no longer need to complete these to begin the Elysion Epic Quest Line
      •   - This change allows players to pick up the respective quests wherever they please; just in case they out-leveled the Lanox or the Atlas Regions from grinding Secret Dungeons
    • All Elysion Dungeons will have their difficulty removed
      •   - You won't have to worry about mistakenly running the wrong difficulty dungeon for your Epic Quest Lines

    Camilla's Skill Manual Quests
    • Intermediate, Advanced, and Expert Skill Manual Quests have been revamped
      •   - Expanded the Regions whereas players can acquire the required items to complete the Skill Manual quests
      •   - This revamp allows players to progress through the story while completing the Skill Manual Quests instead of being stuck in a specific region that they may have out-leveled (due to bad RNG/Not getting the drops they need)

    Fever System
    • The Fever System has been revamped to become more useful/relevant
      •   - Players will no longer be forced to enter the 1 Bead "Awaken" status, sacking their desire to have the benefits of the preferred 3 Bead "Awaken" Status.

    Bluehole, the developer behind the massively popular battle royale game "Player Unknown's Battlegrounds," has unveiled their newest title. Dubbed "Ascent: Infinite Realm," the upcoming MMO (massively multiplayer online) game features a mix of steampunk and sorcery and it looks pretty intense.

    The South Korean developer recently released a five-minute trailer for the game, which they abbreviated to "A: IR," featuring massive airships, mechs, and flying mounts. However, this only scratched the surface of the upcoming MMO.

    "Ascent: Infinite Realm" takes place in a high fantasy steampunk world where machines and magic rule and everyone is dependent on flight to explore, travel, and conquer," Bluehole said. "In search of a new home, adventurers take to the skies using a wide selection of airships, vehicles, and flying mounts to traverse A:IR's open, highly vertical world."

    Gameplay mostly involves realm-versus-realm aerial combat and, from the looks of the extensive trailer, some form of player-generated housing. It's definitely an ambitious title incorporating many elements of games like EVE Online, Skyrim, and yes, even Mario Kart.

    Unfortunately, the game's massive scale seems to be a double-edged sword as the trailer definitely has so much going on it's definitely hard to keep track. Many Youtube commenters also noticed and are fixated on the trailer's low framerate and are skittish if this will be carried over to the final game.

    "Ascent: Infinite Realm" is still in development, however, giving Bluehole plenty of time to address these issues. It's also important to note that the game is being developed by a separate team from "Player Unknown's Battlegrounds" which was spun off into its own stand-alone company in September.

    The battle royale title, which recently broke 20 million players, recently launched its highly anticipated 1.0 update on test servers. The main feature of the update will be the vaulting and climbing mechanic, which will allow players to jump over walls and climb through windows as well as hop on top of certain parts of the environment.

    Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA) and Lucasfilm Ltd., released one of the year’s most highly-anticipated games, Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II. Winner of the Game Critics Award for Best Online Multiplayer at E3 2017, DICE, Motive Studios and Criterion Games joined forces to create one of the most robust Star Wars™ gaming experiences to date. Fans can immerse themselves in a game that’s over three times the size of its predecessor with more heroes, locations and vehicles from every cinematic era, deeper customization, progression, and enhanced space battles. Star Wars Battlefront II allows players to live out their own Star Wars fantasies as a trooper on the ground, an ace pilot dogfighting in space, and an epic hero dominating the battlefront. In the all-new single player campaign, players will experience a previously untold Star Wars story from the unique perspective of Iden Versio, leader of the Imperial special forces unit, Inferno Squad.

    “With Star Wars Battlefront II, we wanted to pay homage to the legacy of the Star Wars franchise and recognize how much each era has meant to so many people,” said Matt Webster, Executive Producer of Star Wars Battlefront II. “We built the game based upon what fans loved about the first game and feedback of what they wanted more of, including adding a single-player story, experiencing the ultimate Star Wars battleground across all cinematic eras, and shifting to an event and narrative driven live service that keeps the community together.”
    Star Wars Battlefront II allows fans to play as and against Star Wars’ most feared villains and cherished heroes in DICE’s rich multiplayer experience, including Darth Maul, Rey, Yoda, and joining this December, Finn and Captain Phasma. There’s something for everyone in six different multiplayer modes: Starfighter Assault, Galactic Assault, Strike, Blast, Heroes vs. Villains, and Arcade. High in variety and breadth, Galactic Assault allows up to 40 players to step into battle as one of four distinct classes with a massive array of vehicles and customizable weapons in new in-game locations including Yavin 4’s jungle canopies, Kamino's cloning facilities, and Kashyyyk's Wookiee filled forests. Space combat has been designed from the ground up and brought to life by the legendary Criterion Games in Starfighter Assault, featuring distinct handling, weapons, and customization options through Star Cards. Players can immerse themselves in thrilling, multi-stage battles in space and choose from three unique starfighter classes and iconic hero ships including Darth Maul's Scimitar and Poe Dameron's T-70 X-wing. In Arcade, fans can jump into offline single-player or on consoles, split-screen couch co-op, allowing them to take on AI enemies and hone their skills across a variety of scenarios.  

    New to Star Wars Battlefront II is a carefully crafted and authentic Star Warsstory developed by Motive Studios in partnership with Lucasfilm. The campaign helps to tell the story of what happened in the empire after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi from the perspective of an all new hero, Iden Versio, leader of Inferno Squad. In addition to exploring iconic locations from the films, players will be introduced to new ones including the coral planet of Pillio and Iden’s home planet of Vardos.
    “With Star Wars Battlefront II, the teams have brought to life a period of Star Wars that hasn’t previously been explored in the films”, said Steve Blank, Creative Executive, Lucasfilm Story Group. “We’ve worked diligently to craft a compelling story of what it’s like to view a familiar conflict from a very different perspective by allowing players to experience the Battle of Endor and destruction of the second Death Star as an Imperial.”
    Following the launch of the game, all players who own Star Wars Battlefront II will be able to experience free themed seasons that can include a mix of new locations, characters, challenges, live events, rewards and more in a world that's constantly growing with the community. The first season, Star Wars Battlefront II The Last Jedi, inspired by the upcoming film, Star Wars™: The Last Jedi™, will start on December 5th when players can choose to align with the First Order or fight for the resistance. Then on December 13th, things will kick into high gear when fans will get  access to Finn and Captain Phasma as playable characters, the new planet Crait, a new space location in D’Qar, daily and weekly challenges and rewards. Players can also continue their journey as Iden Versio in Star WarsBattlefront II Resurrection, a new chapter in the single-player campaign.

    Just months after its launch, the "heartbroken" team behind NCsoft's MOBA Master X Master has announced that the game will go offline on January 31, 2018.

    The game, which only launched in June this year, hoped to position itself against genre giants League of Legends and Dota 2 but "wasn't enough to take on the established juggernauts".

    In a statement, NCsoft thanked the MXM community for its support and laid out the what was next for the game.

    "Deciding to close the game is not a decision we come to lightly, but ultimately it came down to a matter of business - we explored several options, but none of them were sustainable," said the developer.

    "We truly believe that MXM is special, and offered a lot of new ideas to change up the MOBA genre, but in trying to carve out a niche for itself, we failed to connect with players."

    Until the game goes offline in a few months, players will be able to unlock all in-game content for free, real money purchases on the MXM Store will be permanently disabled, and refunds will be issued on any purchases made between August 30 and November 16.

    After more than a decade after its launch, Titan Quest recently received a new expansion. This new content came as a surprise, without any prior announcement, and is currently available on Steam.

    This new expansion pack, titled Ragnarök, brings Norse mythology to the action RPG. It features an entirely new playable act and dozens of quests. It also introduces new bosses, enemies, and an additional Rumemaster mastery. The level cap has also been increased to 85. More changes and refinements come to character customization as well, with new shaders, effects, and ragdoll physics. 

    THQ Nordic acquired the game from developer Iron Lore Entertainment four years ago. "Since the day we acquired the franchise in 2013, we've been toying around with ideas on what's best for Titan Quest," executive producer Reinhard Pollice told PC Gamer. "We were quickly motivated to do another expansion as we realized Titan Quest is still actively played."

    To play the Ragnarök expansion, you have to first own the Titan Quest Anniversary Edition, which is available on Steam. The original boxed version is not compatible.
