As we’ve known since Blizzcon last November, the character models in World of Warcraft are getting updated across the board to match the breathtaking visuals that Blizzard are able to display in-game, as well as the more recent player races.
I wrote a piece back in December about Subnautica; a fantastic looking game which will let you explore an underwater world full of inhospitable areas and creatures straight from your nightmares, with nothing more than your own personal submarine and a love for exploration which borders on the suicidal.
Well, the guys over at Unknown Worlds have gone ahead and released their terrain generator for user testing, so you can try it out and create your own underwater areas for free.
Since the big announcement at Blizzcon about the next World of Warcraft expansion – Warlords of Draenor – information has been light. However, World of Warcraft‘s Creative Director, Alex Afrasiabi, has taken to Twitter to keep us all abreast of the latest stuff he and his team are working on.
You go Alex!
One of my earliest memories in gaming was waiting for my older brother to stop playing Dungeon Keeper on our old PC so I could play it myself. He and I adored it, and are amongst the thousands of people who are still waiting for a worthy remake. The thousands of dungeon marauding fans like ourselves were not waiting, however, for a calamitous iOS/Android remake which tears the soul of the game out by the roots and replaces it with a hollow port which has room for little more than your credit card details.
And yet, here we are.
If you’ve purchased DICE’s epic first person shooter Battlefield 4 across any platform, you will likely have noticed that it had a few discernible ‘issues’ at the beginning. And for a while after that. And now too, come to think of it.
Fear not, however, because developers have taken the democratic route and are now asking players what they want to see changed.
No, Staffordshire University students aren’t driving around with twelve inch rims and state-of-the-art sound systems in every orifice of their ’92 Renault Clio’s. They didn’t even get to meet Xzibit. Even better, Epic Games have delivered 85 cutting edge computers to the University of Staffordshire with all the firepower necessary to run their latest Unreal Developer Kit.
Luckiest students alive? Yeah, without a doubt.
Yup. Sure, YouTube are a big entity and it can get things wrong now and then – these things are to be expected. No harm, no foul and all that nonsense.
Except that when Terry Cavanagh appealed the claim against his own trailer, YouTube rejected it.
