Walking the Gank: Examining Sea of Thieves’ on-going identity crisis

2022 will be a big year for Rare’s pirate simulator, Sea of Thieves – but how does the game look, from a long-time player’s perspective, after 4 years at sea? Rare’s “what if pirates also enjoyed solving puzzles” thought-experiment Sea of Thieves is once again shaping up for a successful year. As if 2021’s introduction of Seasons with Battle Pass-esque cosmetic unlocks and a full narrative-focused Pirates of the Caribbean crossover wasn’t enough, Rare recently revealed that 2022 will see the addition of new, timed PvE events that contribute to an ongoing narrative, where the community’s actions can actually affect…

Dying Light 2 team says fixing disconnects in co-op is one of its main priorities

Players are reporting other issues too. Techland is aware of disconnection issues plaguing Dying Light 2 co-op, and a fix for it is on “the top of the list.” According to the studio, it is also working on problems with redeeming awards, codes, and other in-game content, including Twitch Drops from TechlandGG.

Forever Skies looks a bit like Subnautica up in the air

Watching the trailer for upcoming craft-o-survival game Forever Skies, I now understand how people who fear the ocean must feel about Subnautica. While I’m at my happiest in water, I know depths and strange sealife give many others the heebie-jeebies. However, heights make me pray for death.
