Hades: Good Times Update Live Now

Supergiant Games changes their Early Access rogue-like dungeon crawler Hades significantly with Good Times Update.

Hell doesn't take a single day to build and knowing that, developer Supergiant Games has planned a year and a half worth long roadmap for their action role-playing game Hades for PC, which is currently an Early Access title on Epic Games Store.

Since our protagonist Zagreus is a prince of the Underworld, he should be able to bend the rules around Hell a little bit more to his will using the newly added feature "Fated Authority". Just persuading the Fates to give up some varying rewards in each chamber would suffice for now.

Aside from introducing new ability tweaks and balance changes, the brand-new update sees to equip Zag with a unique rapid-fire weapon called "Adamant Rail" unlike any other firearms to unleash some real power upon every obstacle that threatens him.

In a cursed place like Hell, anyone would seek for some blessings and Dionysus, God of Wine has been added to pantheon of Olympian Gods to freely meddle with your enemies as he pleases and bestow his blessings to help you later.

Players who are good with competing and completing challenges can now hope to earn greater rewards by heading over to a new "Infernal Gates". Only those who have overcome the greater trials in Pact of Punishment can open these gates.

Hades: The Chaos Update Live Now

Supergiant Games changes their upcoming Early Access RPG game Hades significantly with The Chaos Update.

It has been a month since developer Supergiant Games have announced their upcoming action role-playing game Hades as an Early Access title at The Game Awards 2018 and they already are rolling in a brand-new update to introduce major changes.

The Chaos Update will be prioritizing various features to add variety to the gameplay to expand hell with more content. Before the studio moves to work on the next major update for next month, they might release a few more patches afterwards.

What you can immediately detect is that the visual style for the lead character and prince of the Underworld, Zagreus has changed. Zag has received a makeover newly retouched animation frames to keep par with the unique outlook of the game itself.

His appearance is more flowing than ever and has gained a few new abilities as now he can briefly stun majority of foes with his dash attack. Shield of Chaos will be recharged quicker for him and Eternal Spear picked up a little speed.

To get the Hell out of Underworld (or Hades), one would require some serious blessings and boons, which is why Primordial Chaos was included as an ancestor of the gods to offer incentives but their rather unforeseen side effects may force you to think twice.

Among the bunch of alteration they dropped are few more challenges for skilled players who already completed the game over. Pact of Punishment unleashes more sufferings to go through and a challenge from Lord Hades to slay enemies without taking hit in a "Perfect Clear".

Based on constant player feedbacks, the developers also fixed a few issues with bug and music, added balance changes and more than a few tweaks in features. Voiced narrative events for Achilles, Hades, Hypnos and Zagreus have been included.

Instead of bringing chaos, the update has ushered some stability to keep up the hack and slash. Aside from adding three new chambers in Asphodel and Tartarus, new enemy types like Gorgon, Skull-Crusher and Megagorgon have made it to the list.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades Delayed to 2019

Upcoming free-to-play mobile title The Elder Scrolls: Blades from Bethesda is now delayed to early 2019.

Revealed back at E3 2018, The Elder Scrolls: Blades is the upcoming latest entry in The Elder Scrolls series from Bethesda Softworks. Though initial release date for the game was set to be in 2018, it currently is pushed back to early 2019.

The initial showing was quite impressive and the audience loved it but after the recent backlash with the release of Fallout 76, Bethesda probably decided to take time with their next free-to-play mobile title for Android and iOS devices.

DayZ Beta Live Now

After spending half a decade, DayZ is about to leave Early Access on Steam and Beta goes live now as 1.0 version.

Developer/publisher Bohemia Interactive started their journey of open world multiplayer survival game DayZ that was built as a mod for Arma 2 in 2012. It was launched via Early Access on Steam for PC back in 2013 as they were running alpha testing.

After spending half a decade in that phase for slow development progress, the studio is finally launched an experimental "beta" version as 1.0 release after making an announcement earlier in their official blog and it is available for public.

RELATED: DayZ Leaving Early Access in 2018

Initially, the mod's creator, Dean Hall came to work for Bohemia to work on the Arma franchise when he took a leave from New Zealand army. He was inspired from a real-life experience of a training exercise that led him to create zombie survival game.

With permission from the company, Hall created the DayZ mod for Arma 2 and then released it as a free download. People simply loved it and within months, have amassed a staggering number of over half a million players.

RELATED: Days Gone Delayed Again

This made Bohemia Interactive to seriously consider the mod to turn it into a stand-alone game. When Valve's online distribution platform Steam unleashed the second wave of big Early Access titles, it came out selling a million copies in just four weeks.

Although they targeted to release a beta version of the game before the end of 2014, the team of development has struggled to deliver what they promised to their fans. They only managed to revamp the game engine and expanded Chernarus map.

RELATED: Amnesia: Collection on Xbox One Out Now

The problem was, without fixing the already existing issues and fixing bugs, the studio was busy adding additional features to it. Meanwhile, Hall moved on with founding his own studio and director Brian Hicks left the project on early 2018.

However, rest of the team finally pulled it off by releasing the experimental beta build and came to a decision of preparing a stable 1.0 version with all available content by January 2019 by putting a stop to their usual feature developing practice.

Since their core technology development is done for, Bohemia Interactive can now center their focus on polishing and making balance tweaks. Some of you may or may not have noticed some of the fixed issues in the past week already if you are still playing.

Given the overall situation, they made the right call of prioritizing their primary promise to the already existing 1 million players from the early days who believed in them and bought an unfinished game and to many more to come in future.
