Original Diablo Arrives on GOG

Original Blizzard classic action RPG game Diablo becomes available to digitally purchase on GOG.

Although developer/publisher Blizzard Entertainment delivered dungeon crawler action RPG title Diablo III for Nintendo Switch, fans were not very happy when they announced the next game from the series, Diablo Immortal for mobiles only at BlizzCon 2018.

Dedicated fans were very unhappy with this direction studio chose to follow and faced heavy backlash. However, they would be glad knowing that PC version of original action based hack and slash game Diablo is now available digitally.

Those having a hard time remembering how the game used to look like can take a glance at the trailer of the 1996 role-playing game.

According to an official announcement found on Diablo III homepage, Blizzard partnered up with digital distribution platform by CD Projekt, GOG to sell copies of the game online in its original glory for the price of $9.99 only.

Players can also choose to pick up their copy from Battle.net store but this one will definitely be different from the one offered at GOG. While the former is completely unchanged as it was during launch, latter one is an enhanced version.

Also, better audio, resolution and screen refresh rates are a perks to GOG store along with other bug fixes. In case if you are looking for a dosage of nostalgia vibe out of the title, there is option for switch back to 20 FPS graphics too.

Though bringing the game to digital platform and made available to purchase for all doesn't make everything right but at least, this is a start towards a right direction and maybe someday soon we will also see the sequel, Diablo II arriving on online outlets as well.

Horizon Zero Dawn Hits 10 Million Sales

Guerrilla Games celebrates the second anniversary of Horizon Zero Dawn and share development fun facts.

Developers at Guerrilla Games knew that they are up to something good after completing 2017 action role-playing game Horizon Zero Dawn and early feedback also backed that idea but they never really expected to receive so much appreciation in return.

As of today, the entire studio staff is currently celebrating the second anniversary of its release and now has become one of the best-selling PlayStation 4 games by selling over 10 million copies worldwide by February 28, 2019.

Now that they have managed to surpass an impressive sales number, the game has officially surpassed other PS4-exclusive titles like God of War, Marvel's Spider-Man and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End in terms of commercial success.

In two years, players have many fun experiences and memories taking on protagonist Aloy's journey in HZD. On the year of its launch, the game was one of the most talked over title in 2017 and for all the right reasons.

In celebration, the studio offers to share some of their development details for HZD all of which helped to shape the game. Right after they finished working on Killzone 3, the Intruder pilot Jammer from the game becomes an early prototype model for Aloy.

They began playing with gameplay elements back in 2010 and were having a tough time finding a suitable facial mock-up for Aloy but help came from Conversation Director Jochen Willemsen when he suggested Dutch actress Hannah Hoekstra for the role.

Sound design department was literally looking for needles in haystack listening over to more than 750 bird sounds and choosing only 30 to include in final cut. Different machines making various sounds defined their unique character as they mixed animal sounds to add natural vibes.

After initially mentioning the project briefly back in 2014, Horizon Zero Dawn was announced back in E3 2015 and has become the biggest project Guerrilla Games took on for publisher Sony after their successful stint on Killzone series.

Cyberpunk 2077 Confirmed for E3 2019

CD Projekt Red confirmed fans that upcoming dystopian RPG title Cyberpunk 2077 will be at E3 2019 this summer.

Polish developer/publisher CD Projekt Red is renowned for their work on The Witcher series and currently working on a major role-playing title Cyberpunk 2077 that is one of the most anticipated upcoming video games players are waiting for.

Though the studio made quite a show at E3 2018 with an official trailer followed by a long gameplay walkthrough, eager fans cannot get enough of it and kept bugging them whether or not they will show up at E3 2019 and they concurred.

Official Twitter account for Cyberpunk game has confirmed showing up this year at E3 without giving much detail of any sort.

The confirmation came with a series of speculation of a release date announcement or some more extended gameplay video from fans, which are most likely to happen at some extent but there were no comments from the developers to support those theories.

After making an official title reveal and dropping a teaser trailer more than six years ago, CD Projekt Red sort of delved deep into the development of this project in background while working on The Witcher series of games.

Set to release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on a yet to specified date, we are looking forward to get more intel on Night City metropolis when it will make a show at Los Angeles, California during E3 2019 from June 12-14, 2019.

Cyberpunk 2077 would feature some nudity to support its transhumanism theme and despite many believing it to be a multiplayer shooter of some sort, the game actually offers a true RPG experience for all mature players.

The game surely turned heads with so many incredible features and created the right amount of hype but got into the skepticism of many with their disastrous demo launch, overly complex release schedule and overpriced cosmetic loot boxes in general.

Overall, Anthem could live up to be its own title with true potential given some time and even have a great fan-following like Destiny franchise. BioWare currently has plans of releasing post-launch content and updates to support the game for long.

With the newest generation of gaming consoles are about to be introduced and then soon launched into the market, it would be a great aspect for the online multiplayer title to let players carry over saves to PlayStation 5 or next-gen Xbox consoles.

One may think that BioWare and Electronic Arts dropped the trailer too early but they are going full throttle with Anthem marketing campaign to redeem the credibility of the publisher in market and make up to their VIP Demo disaster earlier.

Darksiders Warmastered Edition Coming to Nintendo Switch

The End of the World is coming this April as Darksiders Warmastered Edition is announced for Nintendo Switch.

Apocalypse returned a few months ago as hack and slash action-adventure title Darksiders III from developer Gunfire Games and publisher THQ Nordic has been launched on November, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

What about players on handheld platforms then, eh? Yesterday, THQ accidentally uploaded a trailer of Darksiders: Warmastered Edition for Nintendo Switch before deleting and re-uploading to confirm a release date for April 2nd.

The story of Darksiders revolves around a time when Heaven and Hell have waged war against each other. To restore order, "The Charred Council" sends War, first Horseman of the Apocalypse to Earth in the aftermath of the conflict that ravaged it.

The unintended and untimely leak only suggests that the game was probably meant to be displayed at the next Nintendo Direct broadcast, which fans are eagerly waiting for and now that they let it slip, we are hoping to have that soon as well.

RELATED: Humble Store Brings Nintendo Switch and 3DS Games

The game was originally launched back in 2010 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, before seeing a Windows PC release. It was eventually ported for PS4 and Xbox One while also receiving a Wii U version, which had a terrible sales record on the dying platform.

Darksiders: Warmastered Edition for Nintendo Switch will be available at Nintendo eShop and your nearest retailers for the price of $29.99 only. We are really excited for the announcement and hoping to see the sequel, Darksiders II to arrive on Switch too.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Director Skeptical on Future Worldwide Releases

Following an early leak of Kingdom Hearts 3, game director Tetsuya Nomura is hesitant on future worldwide releases.

Fans are eagerly waiting for the release of upcoming Kingdom Hearts III on January 29, 2019 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from massively popular action role-playing game series Kingdom Hearts by developer/publisher Square Enix with only a few days left.

As the whole world jumping in excitement for one of the most anticipated games of 2019 to launch shortly, game director Tetsuya Nomura is currently rethinking worldwide releases for his upcoming projects in future because of an early leak of KH3.

RELATED: Kingdom Hearts 3 Leaked Before Launch

Back in December 2018, four physical copies of KH III game got leaked online months before its launch and even though Nomura pre-conceived a contingency plan for a situation like this to prevent spoilers, it was a great disappointment for the director.

The last mainline entry into the franchise was Kingdom Hearts II, which came out on 2005 for PlayStation 2 and the studio had the fans wait for another fourteen years for a true sequel featuring Sora and friends, which is a really long time to wait for.

RELATED: Limited Edition Kingdom Hearts 3 PS4 Pro Bundle Revealed

If you think that was a long period of waiting then you may as well expect it be prolonged even more inn future for projects that Tetsuya Nomura will be working on, because his frustration as Kingdom Hearts series creator and director of KH3 about the situation is pretty obvious.

One of his solutions to avoid such leak ahead of time is to release the game in other regions first before eventually releasing them around the globe on a later date other than simultaneous worldwide release for the retail version at the very least.

RELATED: Kingdom Hearts 3 Tangled Trailer

When it comes to game development, Nomura is quite adamant on his control over the process and he even gave Disney a condition to let him include Toy Story during initial planning phase, otherwise not willing to make KH III at all.

Luckily for him, things worked nicely for him for the project but fans now fear that the highly anticipated, upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake for PlayStation 4 may not see a concurrent worldwide release or at least not for the physical version.

RELATED: Top 10 Most Anticipated Video Games of 2019

Once Kingdom Hearts III is released within the next few days, Nomura would be shifting his entire focus on FFVII project but would still be attached to KH3 and he has good reasons to do that if rumors of a Nintendo Switch port of the game being in works are correct.

Now, it would be hugely upsetting for fans of the Final Fantasy role-playing game series if they are being limited to enjoy his work digitally for a certain time but we don't see anything at this moment that could make him change his mind.
