This is a game that I’ve been following on Kickstarter and on their website. It’s a 4x game which fits in the same genre as the Civilization games and others that involve building an empire and trying to command the world (or in this case, the galaxy) with your chosen race or species.
The game is being designed by a young guy that’s a lawyer by day and video-game programmer by night. They uploaded a new video to their Youtube channel showcasing a new race: the Kulrathi, and some new in-game footage. The Alpha build is going to start being tested by the people that backed them on Kickstarter if they haven’t started already and TruePCGaming has a pretty fun interview with him. Check out their latest Youtube video below.
In a press release just sent out, Blizzard has announced that there will be no Blizzcon in 2012. Rather, there will be a different event for them to focus on, the 2012 Battle.net World Championship. This event is set to take place on around the end of this year in Asia (aww, boo!) with StarCraft II and World of Warcraft Arena World Championship tournaments.
Check out the official Blizzard page for the event!
Bioware is thanking all their members for making SWTOR such a successful launch by offering up a “Founder” title. Basically, after your first 30 days of subscription have lapsed, you’ll receive an in-game mail from Bioware containing a Founders Medal that’s bound when picked up. This title is permanently bound to your account and will carry over to any character you make in the future. It may take a few days for the title to show up, so don’t freak out if you don’t immediately have it.
This will make a pretty cool title on down the road – a lot like some of the WoW items that are no longer accessible that new players are envious of like the Tabard of the Protector for being there at the opening of the Dark Portal.
