The Creator talks about Ultimate ADOM and ADOM

loading…
As today is a big one for us, Thomas answers a few questions and talks about ADOM and Ultimate ADOM.
Diablo IV How It Can Compete With Path of Exile - PC Gamer
I doubt Diablo 4 will be free-to-play, and I pray it won't come with a battle pass, but there are plenty of other things that it can borrow from the competition. Most importantly, the agility of other live service games. Path of Exile's seasons, known as leagues, have allowed Grinding Gear to design enough new systems and experiments to cram inside multiple new games. Whenever I think I'm done with it, a weird new league appears and I jump straight into character creation. The leagues haven't all been winners, but then they end and it's onto the next new thing. The stuff that's well-received then gets permanently added to the main game, allowing these experiments to leave an indelible mark.
SKALD: Against the Black Priory - Backer Beta v1.3.0 Available
Finally! The time is here to release the next version of the Skald: Against the Black Priory beta for backers! I'm not going to lie: It feels pretty fantastic to get it out there.
Anthem Deserves to Live On at BioWare and EA - Escapist Magazine
Much has been said about Anthem's troubled development cycle, and now BioWare and EA will reportedly announce the fate of the game's future soon. It's a game that struggled for years to find its identity, but the final result is a surprisingly hopeful, lively one. Despite the dire straits of its opening prologue, in which your nameless Freelancer falls short, Anthem isn't a despairing world like The Division nor a constant space opera like Destiny. Instead, it captures the aesthetic and feel of a humble space western, with players gathering up a posse of Freelancers to hunt down some no-good varmints out along the frontier.
Mass Effect 2 Cut Characters Explained - Gamrant
Recently, BioWare's Mac Walters gave a detailed discussion on Mass Effect 2's cut characters, so here's every concept we noticed in his video.
Nighthawks - The Vampire RPG - Streets Of, Amongst Other Things, Rage
Greetings, all. I hope everyone’s doing as well as possible given the continued hellscape of what I believe historians are already referring to as “2020b” in the hope of being able to start 2021 off on a better note at some point. Of course, if you’re not… that’s absolutely understandable. One of the worst things about modern life, in my opinion and ignoring the BBC’s continued insistence on commissioning new episodes of Mrs Brown’s Boys, is the need to look strong all of the time. It’s exhausting. It’s self-defeating. It perpetuates a feeling that if you’re not, you’re failing somehow.
Corven - Path of Redemption - December 2020 / January 2021 Update
Demo Version 1.3

1.3, the final demo before the Alpha of the game is now ready for download. There aren't any massive changes, mostly some polishing.
Changelog for 1.3:
  • combat music will not play anymore after you ran away from an enemy
  • adjusted melee combat distance
  • made melee attack animations and cooldowns slightly shorter to make melee combat feel more responsive
  • fixed bug which prevented you from engaging 2 or more enemies at once
  • fixed bug which prevented you to re-engage enemy you escaped from previously
  • added Margaretha, Arlec and Lava Crawler Portraits
  • some landscape modifications

Pretty drastic step to take a game away from a studio at this stage. Must be a proper mess.

Yo, your top-3 Most Anticipated games for 2021 have pretty much as high chances being released this year as Bloodlines 2. You're a positive thinking individual, and I like it!

What a mess. I was finally getting hyped for VTMB 2 after that trailer they released last summer, but now it seems we might as well forget about it for now.

Not sure I ever heard of something like this happening before.

Funny but true as Paradox loaned half of that studio to Hardsuit Labs.

VentureBeat has details on a class action lawsuit Bethesda is facing over the lifetime Season Pass for Fallout 4. In 2015 Bethesda offered the pass for $30 to entitle purchasers to all the DLC ever made for the game: "To reward our most loyal fans, this time we’ll be offering a Season Pass that will get you all of the Fallout 4 DLC we ever do for just $30." Then a couple of years later they began offering the Fallout 4 Creation Club, which offered new premium content not available through the previous season pass.

Diablo II: Resurrected Interview - Eurogamer
Ahead of BlizzCon 2021, we spoke to executive producer and head of the Diablo franchise at Blizzard Entertainment Rod Fergusson, and Diablo 2 Resurrected principal designer Rob Gallerani to find out more about the project and how the game will play when it's released for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and Nintendo Switch later in 2021. And from Fergusson specifically, we asked about the Diablo masterplan - or as he puts it: "the re-emergence of Diablo."

Action-RPG Dandy Ace Launches in March on PC - IGN
Developed by Mad Mimic and published by Neowiz, the game sees you take on the role of a magician fighting their way to defeat the Green-Eyed Illusionist in an ever-shifting palace. The mechanical intrigue comes from the game's approach to attacks On every run, you'll pick up magical cards to slot into your attacks, each with different abilities. But every card can also be used as an upgrade for an existing attack (a poisonous explosion attack might add a poison effect to another ability, for example) Mad Mimic promises over a thousand combinations of cards, all-in-all.

There's hope for Zelda on PC, just look at these indies - PCGamesN
The start of the year is traditionally pretty arid for major videogame releases, but even allowing for this, 2021 is shaping up to be a very quiet year for triple-A. The ongoing global pandemic has disrupted the industry worldwide and caused a cascade of delays, meaning we may be in for an even longer, dryer spell than we're used to.
Bethesda is auctioning a Starfield design date with Todd Howard - PCGamer
We don't know much about Starfield, Bethesda's in-the-works sci-fi RPG. It's been in development for years but a release date isn't in sight: All Bethesda has said at this point is that it involves space travel and will release sometime before The Elder Scrolls 6, which is also very dim and distant on the horizon.

Despite the mystery around it, Bethesda Softworks is offering one fan a chance to design a character for the game. The job is part of a prize package Bethesda has put up for the Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic Evening of Wishes auction that also includes a brand-new Xbox Series X console and 16 games from Bethesda series including Doom, Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, Wolfenstein, Dishonored, and The Evil Within.
