Antimatter Games has published a new teaser for the stealth shooter I.G.I. Origins, in which she spoke about the game world and showed gameplay footage. This is a prequel to the shooter Project I.G.I., which was released back in 2000.
The action takes place in the 1980s, and the main character needs to prevent the incitement of a global nuclear conflict. The main character will be a former SAS soldier who will perform secret missions for MI6 in the USSR.
I.G.I. Origins will be released on PC, but it is not yet known when.
Riot Games has published a new developer diary for Project L, a fighting game in the League of Legends universe. In it, the studio showed the gameplay for the priestess Illaoi. The developers assured us that the work on the heroine is 30% complete.
Other characters were also shown in the video: Ahri, Jinx, Ekko, and Darius. The studio designed the fighting game to be easy to learn but difficult to master. Classic words for the genre.
During matches, two characters are available to each player, between which they can switch at the right time in order to also carry out various combinations. Developers pay a lot of attention to netcode so that there is no difference in latency between playing offline and online.
At the moment, Project L is in the active phase of development, but the release date and timing have not yet been disclosed. It also recently became known that the game will be distributed on a shareware model.
Knights Of Honor And Knights Of Honor 2
In 2004, Black Sea Studios released Knights of Honor, a real-time military-economic strategy game in which you had to manage one of the states of medieval Europe, lead armies around the map, fight tactical battles and make friends with your neighbors. The game had every chance of becoming a cult, but fate turned out differently. First, it was torpedoed by Crusader Kings, which came out half a year earlier, and was able to offer a deeper dive into medieval squabbles. And a week before the release, a control shot with a pilum to the temple was made by Rome: Total War with its breathtaking three-dimensional battles.
As a result, Knights of Honor flashed through the gaming firmament, collected its sixes, sevens, and eights in the press, and disappeared from the radar, remaining only in the memory of some fans.
And now, 18 years later, the creators of the original strategy have made a second attempt. The sequel was developed for so long that many even managed to forget about it. Fortunately, the game has not been canceled, and tomorrow it will reach the stores, albeit with a two-year delay. But can Knights of Honor 2 Sovereign surpass its predecessor, or will it suffer the same fate? Let’s figure it out.
Even though the number “2” flaunts in the name of the game, in fact, we have before us a banal remake. If we put aside graphical improvements, then the differences between both parts will have to be looked for literally under a microscope. Almost all elements, from the gameplay to the interface, migrated to the sequel without any changes. So if you once spent several dozen hours repainting a map of Europe, you will immediately feel like a fish in water.
For those who are not familiar with the original, you will have to briefly explain what Knights of Honor 2 is. The easiest way to describe the game is “Like Total War, but completely in real-time and with an in-depth character system.” You control a country divided into separate provinces, rebuild cities, recruit armies, move commanders through forests and fields, and, if desired, fight enemies in tactical battles. At the same time, absolutely all actions, including those on the global map, take place in real time.
Knights of Honor 2 is a very old-fashioned strategy straight from the days when the sky was higher and the grass greener. It does not cause a wow effect and is not able to compete on equal terms with the Total War series or with the best games from Paradox Interactive. But it has some kind of special old-school atmosphere, simple but working mechanics, and gameplay that does not require clicking hundreds of buttons per minute.
Ten years ago, the sequel would have suffered exactly the same fate as the original. But today such strategies are sorely lacking, and I really hope that Knights of Honor 2 will be able to find its niche.
But even if the game fails, it will still be remembered with the same warmth with which the first part is remembered today.
Studio Pocketpair has published another trailer for the Palworld sandbox. In the video, we were once again shown many types of Pals – cute creatures that are very similar to Pokemon. All of them can be used. For example, make them slaves and force them to work in a factory.
Palworld is a brand new open-world multiplayer game where you can befriend mysterious creatures called “pals”! Make your pals fight, build, farm, and work in factories.
Players are waiting for a standard survival sandbox where they have to collect resources, build a base and get food. Of course, you can use hand fires for all this – some will build buildings, others will start watering flowers, others will collect shotguns and cartridges for you at the factory day and night, and the fourth can simply be killed and eaten.
Palworld will be released in 2023 on PC.
Warframe developers from Digital Extremes have published a new trailer for the game, dedicated to the launch of crossplay between PC and consoles. The studio is still working on the cross-progress feature.
The cross-platform play option can be turned on/off in the settings. In the first case, each gamer will have an icon of the platform on which he plays above his head. Gamers can chat, join squads, and complete missions, but voice chat will be added at a later date.
Warframe is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and Nintendo Switch. A version for mobile devices is also in development.
