Chariot

Frima Studios Announces Next Game 'Chariot'

Frima Studios has revealed that the next game they will be releasing is a co-op platformer called Chariot. Currently a PlayStation 4 exclusive, the game requires you to guide a chariot through underground physics-based stages. Though co-op is recommended, the studio claims that going solo is available, as well.

The story is about a princess taking her father’s remains to a resting place with the help of her fiance, but her father’s ghost keeps insisting on looting treasure to bury with him. This means that you will constantly have to decide when to venture off the beaten path in search of the loot that the princess’ father is raving about.

Although an official release date has yet to be announced, Frima Studios is eying a Fall release.

Mass Effect

Mass Effect Trilogy Listed For PlayStation 4 And Xbox One

Chilean retailer Zmart has listed the Mass Effect Trilogy for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which fuels the previous rumors of a next-gen release of the critically-acclaimed trilogy.

BioWare, who are the developers of the Mass Effect trilogy, have previously discussed bringing the trilogy to next-gen, saying that if solid plans can be put together they will share.

The Mass Effect Trilogy was released for the Xbox 360 and PC on November 6th, 2012, with the PlayStation 3 version releasing on December 4th, 2012.

Dragon Age

'Dragon Age: Inquisition' Classes Detailed

BioWare has unveiled class descriptions for their upcoming RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition. The 3 classes are Warrior, Mage and Rogue, and they each have 3 specializations. However, BioWare has only revealed one specialization per class.

The following details each class and its specializations:

Warrior

Battle-hardened and masters of close combat, warriors are pivotal to any group entering battle. As front-line fighters, they absorb the brunt of opponent attacks, steal enemy focus, and create an opening for deadly ranged assaults from other classes. While some warriors prefer visceral, sweeping damage, many are silverite-clad bulwarks, weathering any blows they don’t deflect with their shields.

Champion specialization

Champions are defenders and protectors, and when a warrior trains in the champion’s tradition, he or she becomes unstoppable. Champions use their armor, weapon and awareness to shrug off incoming attacks while holding critical positions on the battlefield and protecting allies in the process.

Mage

Those who can tap into the raw energy of the Fade and block the whispering temptations of demons are truly exceptional. When they turn that mental focus onto the field of war, they can be truly terrifying opponents. Rains of fire, walls of ice, or even the ability to heal allies make up a mage’s toolkit. Most employ considerable skills rendering foes not only weakened, but also vulnerable to physical attacks, setting up opportunities for their teammates to exploit.

Knight Enchanter specialization

Among the Circles of Magi, only a few mages have the strength of will necessary to focus their energy inward. Wrapped in protective magics and wielding blades of arcane force, the Knight Enchanters are rare, but inspiring sights as they lead the charge into enemy ranks.

Rogue

Armed with bows, daggers, and any number of dirty tricks, the rogue’s primary focus is damage: tearing foes down one at a time with systematic efficiency. Rogues commonly use a mixture of stealth and mobility to reach positions of advantage, be it a sniper’s perch away from enemy blades or behind an unsuspecting mage. Deadly and resourceful, rogues can tip the balance of any strategic assault.

Artificer specialization

Intricate mechanisms are the core of the artificer’s craft: Deadly traps; Distracting contraptions; Marvels of engineering turned to deadly purpose. If an artificer is standing at the far end of a seemingly innocuous stretch of the battlefield, you should find another path. If he or she is smiling? Best just to hope your affairs are in order.

Mercenary Kings

News Judgment: 'Mercenary Kings' Free On PlayStation Plus Due To Sales Concerns

Developer Tribute Games recently made their newest game Mercenary Kings available for free on PlayStation PlusInstant Game Collection. This was a surprise to many, as this came just one week after the launch of PC version that was selling well.

The programmer Jean-Francois Major said the following on the decision:

“The decision was particularly tough because I knew the sales we had during Steam Early Access.”

He goes on to say:

“maybe we could’ve done better on our own, but the PS Plus deal was a safe bet.”

Condemn (OR) Condone:

I think this was a risky but really smart move on the developers part. They are getting some money from the contract that they signed with Sony, but they are also going to get a big audience for the game due to the fact that it’s free. That’s the kind of move that pay off big time somewhere down the road, and the fact that the game is good is a win for everybody. Judgment: Condone
