The Art of Arkane Studios - Bethesda

A hat that elevates the wearer’s lofty personality – with shoes that ground him, revealing a subtle hint about his position in society. No, we’re not talking about a character in an Arkane game – but we very well could be. Instead, we’re talking with the very stylish Sebastien Mitton, Art Director at Arkane Lyon, about art and style itself – a forte for both Arkanes and an essential part of the studios’ DNA.

Bard's Tale: Remastered & Resnarkled Coming to Xbox One & Switch - FaceBook
This was the first game that inXile created and we had a blast making fun of every RPG trope we ever encountered. The Bard was narrated by the talented Cary Elwes (Princess Bride) and the the narrator was voiced by the late and great Tony Jay. It's getting a remaster release for Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
ATOM RPG: Trudograd Preview - Gamebanshee
The original ATOM RPG felt very much like Soviet Fallout. Trudograd somehow manages to avoid evoking the same feeling despite still sharing numerous similarities with its predecessors. Itís both familiar and fresh at the same time. If, come full release, it manages to elevate its locations to the level of the very first one, it can easily become a game you wouldnít want to miss.

However, in its current state with sparse content, abysmal writing, and half-baked systems, I canít recommend the early access version to anyone who isnít driven purely by curiosity or a desire to support the developers.

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous - Kickstarter Update #56
Most of our early updates focused on aesthetics, lore, and flavor, even when discussing new classes and archetypes, which left the people who like mechanics and build-crafting hungry for more details. We want to rectify that in this updateóand hopefully some future updatesóby providing you with some tantalizing glimpses into upcoming additions to our already quite vast character development system.

Some of you might know about prestige classes already, from either Pathfinder: Kingmaker, tabletop RPGs, or Neverwinter Nights, perhaps. For those of you that donít, prestige classes are uniquely specialized classes that have requirements you need to meet before attaining the first level in them. These classes only have 10 levels and are intended for people that want to spice up their character with a unique specialization, and they are often linked to a unique life path for the character as well. This update is going to be about prestige classes, specifically about new prestige classes that we plan to add to Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous.

SKALD: Against the Black Priory - Tests in Roleplaying Games - Blog
Attribute tests are a staple of the roleplaying game (RPG) genre. As a narrative, text-heavy RPG, ďSKALD: Against the Black Priory ďis no exception.

Even though such systems might seem trivial, I find that they require quite a bit of consideration to design and implement successfully. The following are some of my musings on the subject and hopefully this might serve as a basis for a broader discussion of the subject.

There is also a little treat for old-school RPG and Ultima fans at the end of the article so stay with me!
Path of Exile: Harvest Upcoming Balance Adjustments - Development Manifesto
Every expansion provides an opportunity for us to reassess the current meta, improve game mechanics that are currently weak and reduce the power of those that are excessively strong. You'll see more detail in the patch notes tomorrow but in the meantime, our team has outlined some of the changes you'll be reading about and the goals we had in mind while making these decisions.

Tainted Grail Early Access on Steam

loading…
Like I said in my last post, we are creating a whole additional mode for Tainted Grail and you'll be able to play it, well, endlessly. Itís an entirely new game experience which youíll get in addition to the main game, not instead of it!


Weíre kinda insane because making two games at the same time isnít easyÖ But weíre extremely happy that we will be able to deliver this thing to you, folks!

The crucial point here is that Tainted Grail: Conquest will be the main focus of the period weíll spend in Early Access!
Why, though? Two main reasons

Corven: Path of Redemption Kickstarter Relaunch on Monday - Kickstarter
No matter how optimistic, based on other Kickstarter campaigns, we calculate it.

We will not reach the goal.

In the last few days we were re-thinking the goals and how we could make it work.

So we will cancel this campaign and start it new next week, with adjusted goals.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord Available on the Epic Games Store - Epic Games Store
Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is the eagerly awaited sequel to the acclaimed medieval combat simulator and role-playing game Mount & Blade: Warband. Set 200 years before, it expands both the detailed fighting system and the world of Calradia.
Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord Early Access Update - Steam
Greetings warriors of Calradia!

With some semblance of normality slowly beginning to return to the world, we wanted to take the time to reach out to you to talk about Bannerlordís early access journey so far by discussing some of the changes and improvements to the game before moving on to touch on some of our plans for the future.

Rather ironically, and even though itís been a challenge, working from home seems to have brought our team closer together. Development of the game has continued unabated with around 78 patches and fixes in total being released since the gameís launch, eleven weeks ago.
Grim Dawn Grim Misadventure #171 - Expanded Horizons
Grim Misadventures is here!

Last time, you had your first look at the new Crucible Arenas 48 included with v1.1.7.0. But as you now have this update in your hands, thatís OLD NEWS.
V1.1.7.0 was so last week, letís talk about V1.1.8.0! You may recall as we teased you with this image when the new year rolled aroundÖ

As you can imagine, priorities shifted, MOAR was added, then even MOAR, and here we are halfway through 2020 with no new areas in sight. But fear not, for their time is coming!

Where v1.1.7.0 focused on overhauling loot tables and introducing a mountain of new Monster Infrequents to hunt for, v1.1.8.0 will be all about world building.

There are many nooks and crannies in Cairn that have been left untouched. In some cases, it was the realities of development and we couldnít get to everything we wanted to. In other cases, we had tantalizing areas just out of sight that never got used.
The Ascent Interview - Xbox Wire
When it launches this holiday, Xbox Series X will be the most powerful console the world has ever seen. One of the biggest benefits of all that power is giving developers the ability to make games that are Xbox Series X Optimized. This means that theyíve taken full advantage of the unique capabilities of Xbox Series X, both for new titles built natively using the Xbox Series X development environment as well as previously released titles that have been rebuilt specifically for the console. In our Inside Xbox Series X Optimized series, these creators will share the behind-the-scenes accounts of how theyíre optimizing their titles for Xbox Series X and what that means for the future of gaming. Today, weíll be chatting with Co-founder and Creative Director at Neon Giant Arcade Berg about optimizing The Ascent for Xbox Series X.

Hey @Couchpotato,

There was some kind of news bomb in the last few hours, not directly RPG-related but instead, related to a person very well-known of us RPGamers. If you allow me to post some links in your thread, here it goes:

Dying Light 2 writer Chris Avellone accused of sexual assault and harassment


Chris Avellone accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women

Such accusations, if proven to be true, tend to destroy reputations.
