THQ Nordic Acquires Kingdoms of Amalur

THQ Nordic announced acquiring rights for Kingdoms of Amalur IP and abandoned Project Copernicus MMORPG.

Back in 2012, when Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning was first released by Electronic Arts for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms, developer 38 Studios was generally praised for creating such an amazing action RPG title but sold a very moderate amount of copies. Recently, publisher company THQ Nordic has announced of acquiring the game and related intellectual properties alongside an untitled MMO game called Project Copernicus from the developers as they went bankrupt.

A sequel for the original game was eventually planned but unfortunately they got broke and had put a stop to that. Apparently, the title didn't sell enough copies to repay a $75 million loan its developer took from Rhode Island’s economic development agency. Also, they were eyeing a 2013 release for Copernicus as a free-to-play MMO before the company got liquidated. When all assets are put into auction, Amalur remained unclaimed for long and THQ then stepped in to acquire the IP.

Formerly known as Nordic Games, THQ Nordic has backed up games like Darksiders and Red Faction in past. The publisher has bought Deep Silver's parent company Koch Media and secured rights on Saints Row franchise. Last month, they reserved rights over TimeSplitters franchise from Crytek. Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning had author R.A. Salvatore tied to the project alongside comic-book artist Todd McFarlane (Haunt, Spawn), who signed up to provide some top-notch artwork for the game.

Cyberpunk 2077 Gameplay Reveal

Developer CD Projekt Red offered a public reveal of an extensive gameplay of upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 recently.

After their successful stint with The Witcher series, Polish developer/publisher company CD Projekt Red has focused their efforts on a new upcoming role-playing game, Cyberpunk 2077 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We are already way past a teaser trailer followed by another E3 2018 trailer back in June to receive some details of the game. What we really lacked until this point was a look at the in-game footage of how it plays out and we finally have a gameplay reveal here.

Below is a 48 minutes-long gameplay walkthrough from Cyberpunk 2077 that takes us for ride to the dystopian future we were eager to get into.

The developers chose to play the game's key character V as a female for the demonstration as she goes into a mission at an early point of the game with her friend Jackie to retrieve a girl aided by a NetRunner named T-Bug. Her locator implant goes off and now breached into a secret facility of some sort where apparently, a group of scavengers are trying to harvest implants from people by kidnapping them. They come across one of them inside and took him down without making any noise.

As she goes inside, more goons appear and gunfire ensues between two parties. We then see V using cover and then a reflex booster that allows player to use ability called Kereznikov. This lets one to experience a brief time freeze to perform attack like an amazing bullet time effect from The Matrix movie. They manage to take down the last one of them and secure the target before calling in an emergency evacuation unit to get the girl. A Trauma Team then arrives and leaves with her.

We actually have a lot more than we expected and in a video clip of nearly an hour long, there was a lot to notice and miss at the same time. Already on talk of the town menu, the game spiked an interest of every RPG lovers ever since the teaser dropped and upon releasing of some stunning screenshots, they've just lost their minds. Though skeptical at first, CD Projekt Red decided not to make them wait too much for some exclusive look into the open world of Night City.

It may sound quite odd that Cyberpunk 2077 was originally announced back in 2012, even years before The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt came out. Then it took another six years for them to make it to E3 this year. There, they showcased a similarly long demo of in-game footage to a selective audience and they were quite hesitant to reveal the video for public because it is from an early phase of development process and the finished product may not play out the same as you saw in this clip.

Debuted on Twitch, it was on the top of the live video streaming platform and then made its way to the game's official YouTube channel and we then decided to dive down. When their Twitch feed initially started to spew out a series of random characters and numbers over a black background, Reddit users have predicted this as a new trailer because of its cryptic nature but then it turned out to be a major display of the gameplay demo that was shown behind closed doors at E3 and Gamescom 2018.

Darksiders 3 Gamescom 2018 Trailer

New action-packed trailer of Darksiders III at Gamescom 2018 features Fury alongide her Horsemen brothers.

After two fan-favorite installments, what Darksiders franchise suffered is a six year-long gap when THQ was completely bankrupt in 2012. However, things came back in track when Gunfire Games took charge of development for the third game of the series and thus, came hack and slash action-adventure Darksiders III. We are only three months away from the title to release on November 27 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One while GamesCom 2018 brought us a brand-new trailer.

Fury is tasked to hunt down Seven Deadly Sins on a ravaged Earth, where she unleashes her true nature to slay down beasts of all sorts that came in her way. During her mission set by the Charred Council, she came across some giant bizarre creatures, which are possibly the boss characters and we see her excellent combat skills with her long-range whip. It is safe to admit that Fury packs a better move set than her brothers considering their usability in combat and they are far more practical too.

Fraction of her gameplay footage also showcases surroundings from a ruined world and demonic entities that inherits it now. One other thing to notice here is that, the gameplay mechanics have improved to make all of her moves fluid smooth. At one point, she is also met by Horseman War and Death but what significance they bring to her story is still unclear. This might also be from a flashback sequence that is to serve as part of back-story for protagonist Fury to visit Earth.
