    Solving this Titanfall mystery could earn you an Xbox One

    It appears that Microsoft has launched a mysterious marketing campaign to promote Titanfall, and investigating it further might earn you an Xbox One bundle and other rewards if you live in the UK.

     

    A Reddit user was the first to notice that Microsoft's "Invitation" television commercial was a little different than usual, with the ad stuttering and cutting away to pieces of binary code and an image of a briefcase.

     

    The binary code then led users to several websites, including http://gl16790101.com/, where you can find the terms and conditions for the "Glitch Contest." They state that the contest started on Jan. 23, and that it will end Feb. 23. You must be over 18 and a resident in the UK to participate.

     

    "The entrant must complete the pre-determined steps that form a path with a dedicated start and end point. These have been created by parties working with Microsoft," the site reads.

     

    Prizes include an "Xbox console bundle," "14 Xbox items," digitally signed artwork, signed comics, game artwork, and codes for in-game extras.

     

    Reddit users have found several links and images that indicate the promotion is linked to Titanfall. One address references Hammond Robotics, the fictional companies in Titanfall that produces its giant mechs, and Respawn also tweeted "No hints!" when fans asked it directly about the meaning of one of the images.

    Second Life loses its CEO

    Rod Humble, Chief Executive Officer at Second Life operator Linden Lab, has announced that he is leaving the company.

     

    A Second Life player's blog post claims that Humble left the company a week ago, which he later wrote about on his personal Facebook page.

     

    "It's been a great 3 years!" the post reads. "All my thanks to my colleagues at Linden Lab and our wonderful customers I wish you the very best for the future and continued success! I am starting up a company to make Art, Entertainment and unusual things! More on that in a few weeks!"

     

    Neither Humble nor Linden Lab have made an official comment, but Humble no longer appears on the company's leadership page on its website.

     

    Humble, who's best known for his work on The Sims franchise, left his position as Executive Vice President of EA Play for Linden Lab in 2010. Before joining Electronic Arts, Humble also worked on the first EverQuest. He also made several small, experimental games that you can find on his personal website.

    Sony Online Entertainment has announced that it will stop supporting four of its massively multiplayer online role-playing games, Free Realms, Wizardry Online, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, and Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures.

     

    "At Sony Online Entertainment, we are always evaluating our portfolio to ensure we're providing players with the best gameplay experiences," SOE's director of global communications Michele Cagle said in a statement. "At times, as part of this commitment, we have to make the difficult decision to sunset a game so we can refocus our resources on other areas in the best interest of our company and player community."

     

    Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures and Free Realms will shut down on March 31, 2014. Wizardry Online and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes will shut down on July 31.

     

    SOE also announced it's upgrading all individual memberships to its new All Access program, which gives subscribers top-tier membership level in EverQuest, EverQuest II, DC Universe Online for the PC, PlanetSide 2 for the PC, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes (until it's shuttered), and the upcoming EverQuest Next and EverQuest Next Landmark.

     

    All Access membership starts at $14.99, with extra savings for three, six, and one year plans. It will also include a 10 percent discount on marketplace purchases, 500 Station Cash per month, and access to exclusive promotions.

     

    Finally, SOE announced that when All Access rolls out on April 2, it will also make the first Planetside free-to-play.

    League of Legends revenues for 2013 total $624 million [UPDATE]

    GameSpot
    By GameSpot,

    UPDATE: Following the publication of this story, a representative from Nexon reached out to clarify that their game, Dungeon&Fighter "surpassed the number one game, Crossfire, by a significant amount."

     

    Although they're unable to provide specific revenue figures due to a contract with Tencent, the Nexon representative wrote, "If you were to take the figure stated in the Superdata report as net revenue and apply the industry standard 30% revenue share to the developer (as stated on page 25 of Deutsche Bank analyst Hanjoon Kim’s July 1, 2013 report), that would make the gross revenue for Dungeon&Fighter $1.4bn, exceeding Crossfire by over $450 million. While these are not our internal figures, I believe that this gives a good indication of the size of Dungeon&Fighter."

     

    The original story appears below

     

    League of Legends' revenues for 2013 totaled $624 million, making it the second top free-to-play game in terms of earnings, a report from SuperData reveals.

     

    Coming in at the number one spot is CrossFire, a South Korean free-to-play first-person shooter which brought in $957 million in revenues during 2013. Tencent, which owns a majority stake in League of Legends developer Riot Games, publishes CrossFire as well.

     

    Valve rounded out the top 10 list with Counter-Strike Online, which brought in $121 million, and Team Fortress 2 at the number nine spot bringing in $139 million.

     

    Electronic Art's Star Wars: The Old Republic, which added a free-to-play option in 2012, took the number eight spot with a little more than Team Fortress 2, and less than Blizzard's World of Warcraft, which generated $213 in microtransactions alone (not counting subscription fees).

     

    Last week we also reported that Blizzard was beefing up its microtransaction efforts in World of Warcraft, when it posted a pair of new jobs on its "Strategic Initiatives" team, calling for a director and manager for the company's new "Microtransaction Strategy" unit.

     

    World of Tanks was fourth on the list with $372 million.

     

    Overall, the digital games market in the United States (including social, mobile, DLC, free-to-play, and subscription) grew by 11 percent, reaching a total of $11.7 billion in sales during 2013. Mobile represented the biggest portion of the market with 26 percent, but free-to-play showed the greatest growth, increasing by 45 percent over last year. Meanwhile, revenues from social games dropped by 22 percent and revenues from subscriptions dropped by 21 percent.
