Watcher of Realms celebrates its first anniversary with some very generous events

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 25th, 2024

It has been one year since Moonton Games kicked off the fantasy RPG Watcher of Realms, and there are a lot of celebrations to mark the occasion. You could take part in a brand-new mode, earn some skins, and recruit some of the strongest characters in the game with minimal effort.

Starting off big, we have a new guild boss to contend with in the form of Semrah, who apparently will offer a unique challenge with unusual gameplay opportunities. If you are looking for something completely different, however, then you could tackle the Eternal Spire. Be quick though, as it is only around for a limited time.

Tarisland finally launches and celebrates with some massive giveaways

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 24th, 2024

It has felt like a lifetime, as it always does when it comes to waiting, but now Level Infinites’ anticipated MMORPG Tarisland is available across mobiles and Windows. It is time to pick your favourite of the nine classes, customise them to your heart's content, and then enjoy an epic new journey.

Tarisland will kick off with Season 0: Mystery of the Hollows and will debut a fair bit of content right off the bat. There are five, five-player dungeons to contend with, eight ten-player raid bosses, PvP arenas for when you get sick of those co-op dungeons, and a plethora of open-world activities.

Reverse: 1999 offer Reality teams a mouth-watering new addition in Phase 2 of Version 1.6

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 21st, 2024

Bluepoch Games has confirmed that Phase 2 of Reverse:1999s Version 1.6 has launched, and brings with it a lot to get your teeth into. Along with some sign-in rewards and a bunch of stories to enjoy, as well as a new 6-star character who just might be one to watch.

Getain is a nice mix of damage and debuff and fits perfectly into a Reality team. His first Arcane Skill deals single target Reality DMG and inflicts the Shape of Bone debuff that decreases the target Reality DEF by 15%. The target will also deal an additional 30% damage based on caster ATK, a perfect skill to soften them up for your heavy Reality hitters.

Uncharted Waters Origin unveils its latest batch of recruits

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 20th, 2024

LINE Games, Motif, and KOEI Tecmo have announced the latest raft of updates for their seafaring adventure title Uncharted Waters Origin, and if you've played for a while you know what to expect. A new Admiral, new mates, and some new story, the old tried and tested.

If you are a fan of the Dynasty Warriors series you might recognise the name, as our new S Grade Admiral is Zheng He. This Ming official is more geared towards the world of combat, with buffs to Additional Artillery Attack and Ramming. He also increases the chance for injured Mates to heal naturally by 0.2%, which sounds small but is a decent thing to have.

Blue Archive is striking out to Anime Expo complete with special merch to collect

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 19th, 2024

At this point in my writing career, I have seen quite a few press releases come about, and it feels like one of the most frequently updated games there is Blue Archive. It is, of course, great to see a game have a life like this, and now Nexon is taking the next step in its Western development by attending Anime Expo.

Over in the fabled lands of Japan, Blue Archive already enjoys some pretty widespread popularity, thanks to its lineup of characters and tactical combat. The near-constant events, story expansion and characters also help Kivotos continue to pull in the attendees.

Grab a Grammy-inspired Backbone One with the Post Malone collab

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 18th, 2024

There are so many mobile controllers on the market that it could be a little difficult to know which to go for. If you are someone who goes for a good old celebrity endorsement, however, then the new Backbone One might be for you, created as it was with American rapper Post Malone.

It is sometimes hard to take this sort of team-up seriously, never knowing if the celebrity is in it for the passion or the paycheck, but Post Malone does have a history with video games. He has appeared in adverts for games in the past and even turned his hand to Twitch streaming at some points, so it feels like a genuine one, which is nice.

Avatar Legends: Realms Collide pre-registrations open alongside a full-length trailer release

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 17th, 2024

Despite the staying power that the series has, Avatar: The Last Airbender surprisingly fumbled in the mobile gaming sphere, with Generations shuttering about a mere year after launch. Now, Tilting Point is giving it a go, with the upcoming Avatar Legends: Realms Collide.

If you haven’t heard of this, then I hate to burst your buddle, but it is a 4x strategy game. One of those city managers that often try to make you pay for building upgrades or have you wait a month in real time. Only this time there are Avatar characters, which does elevate it, if only a little.

Return to the glory days of tactical RPGs with Sword of Convallaria

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 14th, 2024

Back on the old Sega Mega Drive, or Genesis depending on where you are, there was a little series of tactical role-playing games called Shining Force, and I adored them. It started a love for this grid-based genre that persisted through the years, and I am sure will continue with Sword of Convallaria launches on mobile next month.

Taking place in the land of Iria, XD Entertainment claims the story will contain a rich storyline that lasts 120 hours. They also state that the narrative will change based on your choices, with player agency being a big part of events. It's an assertion we have heard for a lot of games, and time will tell just how deeply their choices will run.

Take on the grandest beasts of all as the Elder Dragons arrive on Monster Hunter Now

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 13th, 2024

It has been hyped for a while but now it is finally here, the new Dancing in the Tempest season has arrived in Monster Hunter Now. Kicking off a banner summer for the game, it is time to strap on your boots and face the greatest threat yet, as the Elder Dragons are here ready for a fight.

If you have managed to climb to the ranks of Hunter Rank 11 and up, well done, you are quite the master. Now, it’s time to get an ego check as the Elder Dragon Interceptions will give you a run for your money. Test yourself against behemoths like the Kushala Daora, Khezu, and Basarios.

The indie hit Vault of the Void will land on mobile later this month

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 12th, 2024

In a market where a lot of AAA games are starting to feel like reboots, remakes, or the same thing we’ve seen ten times with a different name slapped on it, indie developers are a boon. Especially ones who build a successful game singlehandedly, and soon mobile players will be able to get their hands on this, as Vault of the Void crosses platforms on June 22nd.

The story behind this development is interesting. It was made by Josh Bruce, a man who by his own admission had zero programming experience. With this, he built Vault of the Void and released it on PC, where it has sold over 130,000 copies, and sits pretty on Steam with a Very Positive rating.

Stumble Guys tries to catch up to the hype with upcoming Fallout collaboration

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 11th, 2024

Do you remember when the Fallout TV series launched on Amazon and everyone nearly lost their minds? Well, it appears that Scopely missed that particular craze, and only now are we going to get a Fallout crossover, and by now, I mean in version 0.73.

Right now, the Looney Tunes crossover is still going on, and I maintain that will forever be peak Stumble Guys, it just fits. For now, you can still join in the new Special Delivery mission, grab the Backfired Elmer emote, or deck yourself out in the full Bugs Bunny outfit. With the correct white gloves, not this New Looney Tunes yellow glove garbage.

Bid farewell to Penacony as Honkai: Star Rail Version 2.3 launches June 19th

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 10th, 2024

Penacony has been a story of twists, exciting new characters, and strong allies, and soon Honkai: Star Rail will be finishing it with a bang. Version 2.3, fittingly titled Farewell Penacony, will be launching June 19th and will feature updates to the Simulated Universe, and the arrival of a much-anticipated recruit.

Following the exciting events of the last story patch, the Charmony Festival, and by extension The Family’s reputation, is utterly ruined. Besides the Oak Family, the other major lineages are preparing to pick up the pieces and navigate the aftermath. As always, the Trailblazer will be invited to witness these talks aboard the Radiant Feldspar.

HoYoverse roll out their plans for Anime Expo 2024 next month

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 7th, 2024

For those who are looking to book a getaway in July, you might give some thought to Los Angeles between the 4th and 7th, which just so happens to coincide with the Anime Expo 2024. Amongst all the storied attendees is HoYoverse, who will be bringing three of their popular games to the show.

Starting off with Honkai: Star Rail, HoYo will be bringing the Golden Hour dreamscape to LA, straight from their latest world, Penacony. There will be a booth to visit featuring different areas representing this idyllic landscape. You could also get your hands on some new merchandise, including the Pom-Pom Blanket and Plushie which both sound adorable.
