Warface lowers the barrier, raises bar for free-to-play

Development budgets are swelling, while consumer tolerance for higher prices is shrinking. It seems that we are headed towards an impasse. While the free-to-play model has already solidified itself as a viable alternative, th...

Ten things to know about Defiance photo
Ten things to know about Defiance
by Jayson Napolitano

Defiance is SyFy and Trion Worlds’ venture that breaks new ground by simultaneously developing a television series and videogame within the same universe, and even sharing a few characters between the two. We were only given a sneak peek of the television series here at San Diego Comic-Con with a brief trailer, but we were able to spend a lot of time with the Trion Worlds-developed MMO, speaking with Nick Beliaff, vice president of development, and Ron Hill, senior producer, about the game.

We gathered a lot of information about the game’s intriguing story, San Francisco and Bay Area setting, dynamic in-game events, music, and gameplay. If you’re interested in this game or are looking for more details about the world of Defiance, check this out in conjunction with our hands-on preview from a couple months back.

E3: Hands-on with End of Nations photo
E3: Hands-on with End of Nations
by Tony Ponce

End of Nations was originally showcased at last year's E3, but the final release is still up in the air. Nonetheless, the game looks pretty strong, as it should. Developer Petroglyph Games is comprised of former staff members from Westwood Studio, best known for the Command & Conquer and Dune games. I'm no RTS buff, but even I understand the kind of talent being brought to the table.

As mentioned last year, you can have fifty players in a single game battling against the main enemy, the Order of Nations. Thanks to the implementation of client-server technology, players can jump into a game at any time. Hopefully with this and other MMO-style features, both newcomers and seasoned RTS vets should feel welcome.
