Torchlight Frontiers Is Now Torchlight 3, Can Be Played Offline
Other / 27. 1. 2020

The previously announced Torchlight Frontiers, which was previously announced as an action MMORPG, will be scaled back into a more traditional ARPG. As such, Perfect World Entertainment and developer Echtra Games announced that Torchlight Frontiers is being renamed as Torchlight 3. “During development, you often discover what type of product a game was meant to be and we found Torchlight Frontiers was meant to be a true successor to Torchlight 1 & 2,” said Echtra Games CEO Max Schaefer. “Based on this and extensive feedback from our Alpha testers, we decided it was time to take the game back to its roots and model it after the classic Torchlight games that ARPG fans have come to love.” [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2018/08/09/torchlight-frontiers-announcement-trailer”] Torchlight Frontiers was announced back in 2018 as a shared-world action-RPG where players can crawl through dungeons together. IGN came away with a positive impression of the shared world when we previewed Torchlight Frontiers in 2018. However, Echtra seems to believe that a more traditional approach is in order. Instead of going free-to-play, Torchlight 3 will be a purchasable game title with full access to all the playable content. So basically a traditional game release.

Atari teams up with the producer of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot to make gaming-themed hotels
Other / 27. 1. 2020

Eight Atari-branded gaming hotels will be built across the United States later this year. The veteran gaming company today announced a partnership with strategy group GSD Group to build Atari Hotels – gaming hotels that will include VR and AR experiences, with select locations including gaming venues and spaces for esports events. The official Atari Hotel website describes the project as “a one-of-a-kind video game-themed destination. Atari Hotels level up hotel entertainment with fully immersive experiences for every age and gaming ability.” “When creating this brand-new hotel concept, we knew that Atari would be the perfect way to give guests the ‘nostalgic and retro meets modern’ look and feel we were going for,” said the spectacularly named GSD Group partner Napoleon Smith III, perhaps best known for his role as executive producer of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film franchise reboot. “Let’s face it, how cool will it be to stay inside an Atari?!” Construction will begin in Phoenix, Arizona in mid-2020, with additional hotels heading to Austic, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, San Francisco, San Jose, and Seattle. “We are thrilled to partner with GSD Group and True North Studio to build the first-ever Atari branded hotels across the United…

Resident Evil: Resistance is not part of Resident Evil canon, says Capcom
Other / 27. 1. 2020

Multiplayer title Project Resistance will not be part of the official Resident Evil canon, says Capcom. The asymmetric multiplayer game will be bundled along with the upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake, but it won’t be considered canonical. Instead, Capcom is calling it a “fun online experience with connections to the RE Universe.” Speaking to Official PlayStation Magazine (via GamesRadar), Resident Evil 3 producer Peter Fabiano explains that certain events within the 4v1 game make it “impossible to fit in the actual timeline.” But thematically speaking, Project Resistance slots right in to the franchise. “You’ll remember that the Japanese subtitle for RE3 was Last Escape,” Fabiano tells OPM. “Both of these titles have characters that are trying to escape somewhere or something, so thematically it made sense. We also wanted to take up the challenge of building out an online game set in the RE universe.” We got our first look at Project Resistance last September when Capcom first unveiled the game’s teaser trailer. You can check out some gameplay in action here, which shows four survivors working together while one villanous Mastermind spawns enemies. By destroying security cameras, the survivors can remove the director’s ability to see into certain rooms…

Apex Legends seemingly just killed off brand-new hero Forge before he even got here
Other / 27. 1. 2020

It was only last week that Respawn Entertainment unveiled the latest character to be added to Apex Legends’ playable roster – pro brawler Jimmie “Forge” McCormick – and now the developer appears to have, um, killed him off before he even got here. As Respawn initially pitched it, five-time Hyperfighting Federation champion Forge was to be the newest addition to Apex Legends’ hero line-up, and was due to arrive as part of the game’s fourth season on 4th February. So all seemed in order when the developer released a new “Stories from the Outlands” trailer earlier today, ostensibly to reveal more about the metal-armed newcomer. But, in a wholly unexpected turn, the video ends up in claret-drenched disaster as our new pal Forge seemingly meets his end at the hands of a very familiar character. Read more
