    Hitman, The Division Alumni Come Together To Create New Studio Sharkmob

    By GameInformer,


    Fredrik Rundqvist, a producer on The Division, has broken away from Ubisoft Massive to form his own studio with other notable talent including developers who worked on Hitman. The company is called Sharkmob and is working on a multiplayer iteration on a "cult classic" game but wouldn't go into further detail.

    "We're not really interested in making a more traditional single-player type of game," Rundqvist told Gameindustry.biz. "What we play privately, the kind of games we love, are very social, very competitive, always multiplayer. The more the merrier."

    The studios' site is online and says the developer is looking for new recruits.

    Our Take
    It's always refreshing to see established talent set off on new ventures. We're curious to see what Sharkmob is bringing to the table.

    Epic Games Releases All Paragon Assets For Free

    By GameInformer,


    The untimely demise of MOBAs like Gigantic and Paragon are telltale signs of how unpredictable video game industry trends can be. In regard to the latter, Epic Games went a step further by refunding PC and PS4 players who had purchased the game and any DLC released for it. With the runaway success of Fortnite at its back, the developer has gone a step beyond by releasing all of Paragon's assets for use in Unreal Engine 4 for free, which come around to $12 million in total development costs.

    There are 20 characters and 1,500 environmental components to experiment with at anyone's leisure. Animation cycles, sound effects, and skins are even being retained. You can peruse the current list of assets by clicking here, which is expected to expand over time with additional characters this summer.

    Our Take
    Epic Games continually surprises with its generous actions through Paragon's end. I have no doubt that this will give many aspiring game developers incredible insight into what goes into the intricate 3D modeling and animation of the developer's work.

    Historians Take On Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

    By GameInformer,


    History Respawned is a YouTube channel that discusses the real-world history of popular stories in all mediums. Sometimes they even taken on video games, like Assassin's Creed and Papers, Please.

    This week they're chatting about Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus' historical inspirations and how the game borrows from history to create its bleak vision of an alternate timeline. It's a pretty interesting discussion, even if Wolf II isn't your jam, with hosts Bob Whitaker and John Harney a discussing the interplay between history and pulp in one of the most politically charged AAA games in recent memory with guest and filmmaker Robert Greene II.

    You can watch the whole thing right here (be warned: this is pretty heavy stuff, with an emphasis on racial tension and violence).

    (Please visit the site to view this media)

    For more on Wolfenstein II, check out our Virtual Life column on the game's powerful storytelling.

    Reader's Choice Top 300 Games Of All Time

    By GameInformer,


    For the 300th issue of Game Informer magazine, we crafted a list of the top 300 games of all time. Despite all the arguing and life-long interpersonal grudges that resulted from the discussions, we had a good time, and we wanted to extend that opportunity to the reader. At the end of February we opened the polls to let readers vote for their favorite games of all time. Readers were able to submit an ordered list of three games. We took those results, weighted them, and the result is the list you will find below! If you think the list is wrong you only have yourselves to blame, but we will happily absorb your criticism in the comment section below!
