272w ago - Fans of massively multiplayer games who were looking forward to Warhammer Online were understandably shaken this summer when it was announced that some major features were being pulled from the game.
However, those worried fans can now take heart. Speaking to 1UP earlier today about this week's public launch of their new game, Mythic Entertainment general manager Mark Jacobs assured us that the cut content that does find its way back into Warhammer Online will be reintroduced free of charge -- not as part of a paid expansion.
"Are we going to put [the pulled content] in a paid expansion? No," Jacobs explained. "What I've told the users point blank is that we want to give it to you as part of subscription content. We don't have a schedule penciled in for when that will be coming, but we're going to release it without any additional charge to players."
The cuts, announced in July to help keep the game on track for a fall release as well as sharpen up the content that is in the shipping version, included four of the six planned capital cities and four classes. Jacobs told us that though four cities were pulled from the game for the time being, they took the content that had been spread out in those cities and poured it back into the remaining two capitals. "We didn't cut one-third the...
273w ago - TimeSplitters 4 could truly end up on any console. The previous TimeSplitters title ended up on the Xbox, PS2, and GameCube, so it is more than likely that Free Radical will follow up with a 360, PS3, and Wii release for TimeSplitters 4.
However, Free Radical wants to know what the fans are interested in - A poll is up and running on the company's Web site and is asking which console people wish to play the next TimeSplitters game on.
As of the time of writing, the Wii is leading the poll with 65% while the PS3 and 360 are trailing with about 15% each.
This poll could end up as being superfluous if Free Radical makes the decision to release TimeSplitters 4 on all platforms, but it would be interesting to know if the results will influence the development of the game in one way or another.
274w ago - It's official, I'm finally getting my knees deep in an MMO for once. Usually I let Major handle these dirty tasks so that I myself don't get sucked in, but when I heard of free beta keys at 5:00 AM in the morning I couldn't resist but to grab one myself.
Multiplay is currently handing out 50,000 free beta keys. All you have to do is visit the page below sign up an account, and then head back to the link I posted. Fill out your birthday along with you language, and request a key.
If you are rejected for a key, don't start weeping just yet. Go back, and complete the same process in another language. It will usually spit out a key after your second or third try!
At least it their are enough keys by then. We ourselves have one extra key we will be giving out if all else fails for your success of becoming a destined WAR player. All you got to do is register an account, and post a comment here with your account name. Those who commented with the correct information will be put into a raffle (which will occur around 5:30 tomorrow morning), and produce a winner. Before you retreat to luck we do suggest you try your chance out at Multiplay with the link below!.
275w ago - Sometimes it's hard to keep track of what's "official" and what's not - especially because Sony continues to contradict itself. When we first heard the Euro-exclusive PlayTV box would allow users to copy recorded shows onto the PSP, we all said "yay."
The convenience of recording TV and taking it with us wherever we go sounded swell. Then, we found out that the files would be restricted.
Well, with PlayTV in the hands of reviewers, it appears Sony has switched back to the original plan. You'll now be able to copy DRM-free versions of your recorded programs to your PSP, or any other compatible MPEG-4 device, at least according to CVG.
Our European readers may want to check out CVG's review. The rest of us will just sit here in the corner, waiting.
