Report: A New Hearthstone Adventure Could be Coming

IGN.com - 2 hours 6 min ago

Some data mining done on a patch for Build 8036 for Hearthstone: Heroes of WarCraft may have leaked some new forthcoming content.

The alleged information recovered points to an achievement called "brm presale," as well as three card backs for Ragnaros, Molten Core, and Golden Celebration. Hearthstone fansite Hearthhead speculates this could point to a possible upcoming Blackrock Mountain adventure, and posits that the Golden Celebration card backs could be used to celebrate Hearthstone's 1-year anniversary.

Blizzard has not confirmed or even announced anything about a Blackrock Mountain-themed adventure, although another reported leak has claimed that the next expansion for Hearthstone could release in April. Whether or not these two are connected remains unkown. IGN has reached out to Blizzard for comment.

Ex-Darksiders Devs Are Bringing Back Battle Chasers

IGN.com - 3 hours 25 min ago

Vigil Games co-founders Joe Madureira and Ryan Stefanelli have formed a new studio and are planning to resurrect a classic comic franchise as part of their first project.

They've opted to use Madureira's classic comic series Battle Chasers as the source material for their next project, which will include both a comic and a new video game set in the same universe.

Called Airship Syndicate, the new studio in Austin, Texas will handle the development of Battle Chasers' upcoming game. It is still very much in its early stages, but Stefanelli claims it will be "classic and old school but presented with some new modern twists."

Vigil Games was best known for its development of the Darksiders series. Although the new Battle Chasers game will be very different mechanically from the action RPGs, Stefanelli told Polygon they will "make sure that the dungeon exploration side of the game is soaked with lots of fun adventurous elements."

News about SOMA, the deep sea horror game from Frictional Games, has been quiet in the past few months, but a new screenshot and word of its incoming beta status should put it back on survival horror fans' radars.

"Sorry all for the silence! We're closing in on Beta and everyone's working hard to get there," says Frictional. "Once that's done, we'll reveal more!"

UPDATE: FCC Passes Net Neutrality

IGN.com - 4 hours 33 min ago

UPDATE: The FCC has passed the Net Neutrality rules to treat internet providers as "common carriers" under Title II of the Telecommunications Act.

As a result, this will allow the commission to prohibit providers from granting faster internet service for higher prices.

See full story below.

The FCC will be ruling on whether or not broadband internet access will be classified as a "telecommunications service under Title II."

This means that the ruling will decide whether or not the FCC will classify broadband internet as a utility, which would give the commission greater regulatory power over ISPs.

Regulating ISPs is seen by the FCC as necessary to protect what is referred to as the "Open Internet." The first three "bright line" rules laid out by the FCC to protect the Open Internet, as explained in an FCC fact sheet, prohibit blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization.

The 4 Types of Video Game Zombies

IGN.com - 5 hours 9 min ago

Zombies have been plaguing popular culture for decades. The first feature-length zombie movie, Victor and Edward Halperin's "White Zombie," was first shown in theaters way back in 1932, and the shambling, relentless zombie horde have been a staple of pop-culture ever since.

The massive, mindless legions of the undead are ideal creature-features in video games, and as games have evolved, so too has their portrayal of the undead. Below are four distinct varieties of the gaming undead - which is your favorite?

The most common portrayal of zombies is one of a slow-moving corpse, dragging one leg as it scours the land mindlessly searching for food. With the notable exception of Michael Jackson's Thriller video, this is how pretty much all zombies were portrayed until fairly recently. In games like Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts, and pretty much every Castlevania game, zombies rise from the ground and wander from one side of the screen to the other. They're easy to take out, easy to avoid, and are essentially living-dead goombas.

Bandai Namco Announces New MOBA, Supernova

IGN.com - 5 hours 51 min ago

Bandai Namco has announced Supernova, a sci-fi MOBA from developer Primal Game Studio.

Primal says the game returns to the roots of the MOBA genre -- real-time strategy games. The big hook is that, instead of your base sending out generic unit waves at timed intervals, you can heavily customize them to serve different purposes. Infantry, ground vehicles, and airships combine into a rock-paper-scissors battle.

Humans and aliens make up the two warring factions, and their warriors include huge robots, cyborgs, and "interstellar races adapted to the unyielding harshness of space."

Supernova is coming to PCs sometime this year. We have a full Supernova preview on IGN where can check out what we thought of Supernova.

5 Reasons to Love Supernova's Strategic Multiplayer

IGN.com - 5 hours 52 min ago

Bandai Namco and Primal Game Studio is banking a lot on their upcoming MOBA Supernova, because there’s a clear confidence in its strength as something original. Supernova relies on many of what’s been done (better) in other games, certainly, but there’s plenty IGN’s hardcore Dota 2 and League of Legends players found interesting.

These are the five big things I adored about Supernova (with a handful of things I didn’t for good measure).

Supernova is incredibly complicated. A guided tutorial left us sort of slack-jawed as we tried to soak in how abilities worked, what upgrades made the most sense, and which skills to level for each Commander, Supernova’s heroes. At first, it’s overwhelming, so the automatic upgrade system alleviates the stress of micromanaging your stats, bonuses, abilities, and economy. This allows new players to focus on learning the map and, more importantly, fighting opponents.
