Nintendo has announced on its website that it will shut down the Pac-Man 99 arcade battle royale servers on October 8th. According to the company, distribution of the main game and sales of each DLC will come to an end.
It is planned to roll up the title gradually. From August 8, players will not be able to purchase custom themes, and one of the modes will be closed from September 8.
Despite the announcement, Nintendo will not shut down access to the title completely, as owners of paid downloadable content will be able to play CPU Battle, Blind Time Attack, and Score Attack offline.
Pac-Man 99 is an arcade battle royale released in 2021. The game is available for free for members of Nintendo Switch Online.
Mortal Kombat 1
WB Games and NetherRealm Studios have officially announced Mortal Kombat 1, a new part of the legendary fighting game that this time will completely restart the universe. The announcement was accompanied by a beautiful CGI trailer.
Players are waiting for the “reborn universe of Mortal Kombat, created by the fire god Liu Kang.” The fighting game will offer an updated combat system, modes, an immersive story campaign, fatalities, and much more.
The network code of the fighting game will be executed in the rollback format. Pre-orders of Premium and Kollector’s editions will give early access on September 14th. The game will also have a beta. It will be held in August.
Crossplay and cross-progression will come after release. Mortal Kombat 1 releases on September 19th for PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. The PC version is being made by QLOC, and the Switch version is by Shiver and Saber.
Stunlock Studios has announced the release of the first major content update for the vampire survival game V Rising. A patch called Secrets of Gloomrot is available for free to all owners of the base game. It introduced multi-level castles, a new location that is comparable in size to Dunley Farmlands, as well as weapons, skills, enemies, and much more.
In honor of such an event, the developers have published a small trailer and launched a sale on Steam. So far, V Rising is only available on PC via Steam. Secrets of Gloomrot was the first of three major patches planned. The second will take the game out of early access to a full release, and there is no information at all about the third.
In a conversation with IGN, Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick said he still supports the merger between Microsoft and Activision Blizzard. Last fall, a top manager was asked a similar question, but the position has not fundamentally changed.
Zelnik is sure that the purchase of Activision Blizzard will benefit not only Microsoft but the entire gaming industry. He also commented on the blocking of the deal by the British regulator due to fears of a monopoly in the cloud technology market.
The head of Take-Two said that cloud gaming is a distribution method, not a separate business model. According to him, this is all part of the huge gaming market.
It is important not to confuse the distribution technology with the business model. He would like to believe that the streaming distribution model of our games will significantly expand the market. He is not sure there is any reason to believe so.
Earlier, the head of EA, Andrew Wilson, said that he did not care about the fate of the deal between Microsoft and Activision Blizzard, since his company is already the largest publisher and partner for the Xbox.
Insider Oops Leaks continues to share details about the new part of BioShock. Last year, he wrote that the Cloud Chamber studio is experiencing problems in the development of the game, and now he has directly stated that the title has fallen into production hell.
The work structure is very confused. Sadly, the advancement was impacted by the pandemic. The organization has an exceptionally high turnover of staff, many provisional laborers, whose undertakings are then revamped by less qualified trained professionals. The studio utilizes countless representatives with no apparent experience, which is profoundly surprising given the prerequisite of 3 to 7 years of involvement for most positions.
According to an insider, if 2K Games does not announce the title in the very near future, then the game may never come out at all.
