XCOM 2's Upcoming Expansion Is Inspired By Shadow of Mordor

Image credit: Firaxis. Back when Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor first came out in 2014, people pretty much immediately started asking, “When will other games get Nemesis Systems?” Flash forward three years, and the most prominent game to do it is… Shadow of War, the sequel to Shadow of Mordor. But soon you’ll be able to add XCOM 2 to that painfully short list as well. XCOM 2’s War Of The Chosen expansion, which comes out this August, unfortunately does not add orcs (Firaxis has gotta save something for XCOM 3), but it does shake up the game’s strategic and tactical layers with persistent enemy aliens called “The Chosen” who remember and reference what’s happened in previous battles. They’ll mention how other Chosen are doing or taunt soldiers they don’t like. They can even kidnap your soldiers, and, if you rescue them, that Chosen will give your soldier shit for getting kidnapped. In an interview at E3, XCOM 2 designer Jake Solomon told me the dev team was inspired by Shadow of Mordor in ways both obvious and subtle. “We used [Shadow of Mordor] as a jumping off point,” Solomon said. “You’re playing that game, you’re developing these relationships, READ FULL…

PC Shooter Removes Single Tree From Game, Just For One Guy

A few weeks back, SprayAndPlay made a request that a single tree (pictured) be taken out of Tripwire’s Rising Sun 2: Vietnam, a multiplayer PC shooter released earlier this year. And now, the tree is gone. On the surface, it seems like an odd request. But when you hear the explanation, it starts to make more sense: So there’s Huey’s in this game and I love to fly them, favourite role by far. There’s a landing zone with some tree cover fairly close to an objective which I like to try and use when possible but because its so close to the objective I get under heavy fire when I come in for a landing. So what I tend to do is fly extremely low and fast, pull a 180 and land to get my guys out there before an RPG blasts me rotor off. However the exit out of the LZ was blocked by a lone, lanky, thin tree. In the heat of the moment I’d glance out and see an exit and head there only to be met with that tree but I’d keep forgetting about it and I’d repeatedly just smash into it. READ FULL STORY AT…

NCsoft Launches A Slightly Different Sort Of MOBA

Launched today in Europe and North America, Master X Master (MXM) is an free-to-play PC action MOBA featuring WASD movement and a tag system that lets players bring their choice of two NCsoft all-star champions (Masters) into the arena at once, swapping them out on the fly. It’s hard to get excited for a new MOBA these days, but MXM has a few cool things going for it. The tag system sounds cool and should make for some really exciting gameplay moments between people much better at multiplayer arena games than I. It also features a cast of beloved characters from more interesting NCsoft games, like City of Heroes’ Statesman, Poharan from Blade & Soul and that one guy from that thing. Plus it has mini-games. What the hell is going on here? Here is an informative overview of how the game is played. And here is a much less informative cinematic launch trailer. Interested in giving it a go? Hit up the official MXM website and download the PC client for free. READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
