    WoW Classic Stress Test on May 29, Essences Feedback

    WoW Classic Stress Test on May 29

Testing the login process is certainly an aspect that is very important for us to explore and we did gather some valuable data yesterday, so we appreciate everybody who logged in or even attempted to do so during the testing window – you have helped us prepare WoW Classic for release.

    That said, because of some of the issues that were encountered, we were not able to test other aspects that we’d planned for. As a result, we will be doing another stress test on Wednesday, May 29 from 2-4pm PDT. The stress test realm will become available at 2pm PDT and the level cap will be increased to 10. For access, we will be including everybody who was invited to the test on May 22. Similar to last time, the stress test realm will continue to be available until 4pm PDT on Thursday, May 30 so there is additional time to check out the starting experiences.

    Please keep in mind that while more issues could impact the play experience, it is very important to perform these tests so we can learn about and fix as many of them as possible before the release on August 27. We thank you for your continued support and we’ll see you back on the WoW Classic stress test realm very soon.

    Hogger also sends his regards…

    Druid Forced Choice on Essences

    The primary goal of Conflict and Strife is to provide an interesting choice in PvP by allowing access to an extra PvP Talent. It’s not necessarily going to be a strong option for PvE. The acquisition of this Essence is via PvP, and is totally optional for PvE-focused players. While there may be interesting PvE uses for some of the choices, it is not expected to be a strong competitor on usual PvE criteria (like total throughput) on every spec.

    Overwatch Introducing Replay Feature

    By GameInformer,

    When Overwatch first released, there was a big problem people who didn't play Bastion had where getting Play of the Game was actually pretty hard. Blizzard explained it's really hard to fix what a computer thinks is cool, so it had to mostly go by numbers. Now it seems like Blizzard is putting the power in your hands by giving players camera tools and the ability to do a replay of the match they were just in.

    Announced by Blizzard today, the new feature is given the greatly simplistic name of "Overwatch Replays." The tools will let you speed up, slow down, change camera angles, spectate specific players, and more. It seems a lot like their spectator tools for the Overwatch League, but now in your hands.

    This could be useful if you wanted to know exactly how you managed to die in the chaos of that last match, you're analyzing your competitive play for weakness, or perhaps you just did a cool or funny thing and want to show your friends using the in-game editing tools. The blog post says not to abuse dramatic slowdown, but I think you should use it as much as you want and set it to a singing chorus. Other people will just have to deal with your creative vision.

    The replays are currently on the game's Portable Test Realm, but will presumably filter out to the main game in time. The feature will be coming to all versions, including the consoles.

    Report: Star Wars Game Knights Of The Old Republic Getting A Movie Adaptation

    By GameInformer,

    Of all the Star Wars licensed titles in video game history, Bioware's Knights of the Old Republic might be the most venerated. The 2003 RPG put players into a Star Wars universe 4,000 years before the movies and was well-loved for its strong character writing and exploration of the Star Wars mythos. The game is so well-liked that it reportedly influenced director J.J. Abrams during concept meetings for bringing the series back with The Force Awakens.

    It makes sense, then, that Disney and Lucasfilm would consider adapting the title as a Star Wars movie. According to a report from BuzzFeed, that's exactly what they're doing.

    BuzzFeed's sources report that the movie is currently being written in preparation for next steps. Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, has told reporters that an adaptation is being looked at, but BuzzFeed's report states that it is currently in active development. The same story identifies Laeta Kalogridis as the writer, who is best know for her work on Shutter IslandAlita: Battle Angel, and the Netflix show Altered Carbon.

    Disney recently recoiled a bit after Solo: A Star Wars Story failed to perform at the box office, deeply cutting back the bench of currently scheduled Star Wars title and mostly leaving movies from Game of Thrones showrunners Benioff and Weiss, but still has other announced movies in development. With the decision to back off more planned spinoffs like Solo, a space is left open for a KOTOR movie to come to fruition.

    Dead Cells Releases Rise Of The Giant DLC On Consoles With New Animated Trailer

    By GameInformer,

    There aren't enough animated game trailers out there and I genuinely appreciate that Dead Cells provides them at weirdly regular junctures that are pretty fun. This one is to celebrate the release of the Rise of the Giant DLC, a free semi-expansion that has been available on PC for some time. It's now on PlayStation 4 and Switch, so players can enjoy the new bosses and new areas it provides.

    You can check out the animated trailer below.

    In addition to the trailer and the DLC, Motion Twin has confirmed that Dead Cells has sold two million copies across all systems. This is a pretty unqualified success for Motion Twin, which functions somewhat experimentally as a developer with a flat structure in terms of hierarchy. In absolute terms, two million in the indie market is huge, and speaks to how a critically successful idea can take off.

    Dead Cells is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, and soon mobile platforms. Rise of the Giant will also be coming to Xbox One, but a last minute bug in the certification process delayed the release on that platform, which Motion Twin says will "come a bit later."

    Top Steam Releases of April 2019

    By Valve,

    We are continually fascinated by the number of amazing games coming out on Steam each month and how much variety there is in what becomes popular. In any given month, the most popular new releases represent a wide variety of styles, genres, and themes. They may be worldwide hits or they may have a stronger audience only in particular regions.

    To generate this list, we started by enumerating all the games released between April 1 and April 30. We then looked at revenue earned by each of those games in the first two weeks following that game's release. From that list, we took the top 20 games by revenue to make our final list. Finally, we sorted the 20 games by release date.

    The Latest Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Trailer Finally Shows Off X-Men

    By GameInformer,
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Developer: Team Ninja
    Release: July 19, 2019
    Rating: Rating Pending
    Platform: Switch


    You might have noticed that we have Marvel fever this month at Game Informer thanks to our cover story of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, the upcoming Nintendo-published Switch exclusive. We've already had a bunch of exclusive features, footage, and discussion of the game, but Nintendo's also supplying some new trailers, like this one focusing on the X-Men.

    You can check out the latest Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 trailer below.

    While we've known Wolverine is in the game since its initial reveal trailer at The Game Awards last year, but Marvel's recent attempts in the last few years to tap down on publicizing the other X-Men made their appearance in Ultimate Alliance 3 somewhat dicey. Thankfully, this trailer confirms that a number of the mutants are making it in, including Nightcrawler and Psylocke.

    You can check out our coverage hub of all things Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 right here, which has the roster so far and a few exclusive character reveals like Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye, not to mention our gameplay impressions.

    Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 releases exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on July 19.
