This week definitely started with a bang. The guys and girls over at Blizzard Entertainment hosted their annual BlizzCon in Anaheim over the weekend, which brought some exciting trailers (Warcraft anyone?), shocking revelations, and new game updates to the studio’s gaming portfolio. Aside from that, the week introduced many different game updates to the world of mobile and online games.
Trion Worlds are currently working on their upcoming free-to-play RPG called Devilian. So far, only few players have been able to jump into the title and give it a run for its money. This hasn’t really changed, as the online game started its third closed beta event on November 12th. Those lucky enough to test the RPG can do so until November 16th.
Get to the chopper, as an Arnold Schwarzenegger lookalike appeared in our newsfeed to advertise a new mobile game called Mobile Strike. Publisher Epic War LLC’s app challenges players to build a military base and fight against others in tactical battles. Very 80s action film inspired, if you ask us, which is why the artwork makes sense, right?
Fans of Game of Thrones are currently desperately awaiting the next season of the HBO show to launch or the sixth book of A Song of Ice and Fire to come out. Luckily, they can tide themselves over by finally finding out what will happen to the Forresters in the season finale of Telltale’s Game of Thrones: Season One, which launches on November 17th.
BlizzCon 2015 definitely included some surprises – unfortunately not the kind we appreciate here at sevengames.com. Blizzard Entertainment revealed that, contrary to popular belief, Overwatch would not be available for free. Instead, the upcoming first-person shooter would have to be purchased for up to $60.
Additionally, BlizzCon featured some positive news for Blizzard’s already available free-to-play titles. Hearthstone received the League of Explorers expansion, and Heroes of the Storm is getting one update after the next in the near future.
