Star Citizen devs add another feature: 40-player ‘Theaters of War’ battles

These phases are all based on battles in the Star Citizen timeline, so canonically speaking these events are re-enactments. Also at CitizenCon, Cloud Imperium Games finally gave a release date for a long-awaited space vessel: The Anvil Carrack. The reason it's so special is because Star Citizen players have analogized the Carrack to the Serenity, the ship from the dear departed Firefly TV show from 16 years ago. Star Citizen began life in 2012 as a Kickstarter project with a 2014 delivery date.

Marvel's Avengers' creative director Shaun Escayg has told GamesRadar that the team always expected a mild backlash to the game's new and improved super squad. Marvel's Avengers was officially revealed at E3 2019 earlier this year, but - for many - something felt... off about Earth's mightiest heroes. Instead of lifting the likenesses of Chris Evans and co directly from the Avengers movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, developer Crystal Dynamics designed their own take on each iconic charact

Control devs say PS5 will let us “have much more detail in the game worlds than before”

From a developers standpoint, though, Donnelly explains that without the SSD, data streaming "would become a bottleneck" and restrict the content quality of PS5 games. With it, though, the SSD will lift the restrictions imposed by current systems, and will enable developers to craft more detailed worlds. "For something like Control, that could translate to an even deeper destruction system, richer, more detailed worlds, and simple quality-of-life improvements like instant reloading after dying."

Diablo 4 devs talk levelling, skills and a potentially infinite endgame

In a developer diary posted to the Diablo blog, lead systems designer David Kim has shared thoughts on the direction the game is taking. But as yet, according to Kim, "We haven't decided whether the character leveling and experience system should be finite or infinite." "We have a couple reasons for having a different experience system in addition to a level cap.

Observation’s devs tell us what it’s like to release a game into the wild

Its debut, horror anthology Stories Untold, was a supremely strange puzzle game based around a series of archaic machines. Even so, towards the end of Observation's development No Code was having something of a crisis of confidence. "You lose perspective when you're working on a game, because you're so close to it," says McKellan. (Image credit: No Code)But Observation's development was far from over.

How the PS5’s specs could enable devs to create more realistic worlds

In an interview with Gaming Bolt, Keisuke Kikuchi, producer of JRPG Fairy Tail, expressed how the PS5's AMD Zen 2 processor and SSD will allow for the creation of more "natural" and "realistic" game worlds. The other key component in creating these "realistic" depictions is the PS5's SSD (Solid State Drive) which will give the console more in-built storage and making loading faster. Sony itself has pushed the idea of these decreased loading times and "dramatically improved graphics rendering" po
