Bioware’s Anthem takes on Destiny and Big Online Shooting Games

Published

on

Anthem, the much awaited mech-flying game for online shooters kept online gaming industry busy, what with the service on which it was to demo not linking up and later the game itself not connecting to servers, not moving ahead of the intro segment. Finally publisher EA tweeted a much laundered – ‘issues list’ accepting that the major title had run aground.

Anthem by bioware

Anthem is a freshly minted online shooting game by devs Bioware and publishers EA. Announced at 2018 E3, this platform has been the most anticipated game since it was expected to take-on the big and established names in this segment – Destiny and other namesakes.

The demo-version finally arrived for those who had pre-ordered the game, after much delay. A 40GB demo, the story of the game is shooters to loot, by using pilot mechs with friendly combat and exploration.

Major embarrassment

What was to be a routine launch or demo by a leading title and much publicized publisher, turned out instead to be a major embarrassment to all concerned.

Though it is acceptable for demos to run into minor or initial-level glitches and eventually have a solid-run in for the serious game follower, Anthem proved to be a major oxymoron.

Not only was logging-into, setting-up and all a major issue and time consuming, what really reached annoying levels was the lack of support. The close-down of Help lines by EA only got on the nerves of the players of the demo since they were unable to bring it to the notice of the publisher that their much awaited game could not be played as yet.

Since those who purchased the demo pieces were serious gamers, and not some random players out to explore the launch of a new game, the onus was the top title developer and publishing game.

Busted pre-order bonus

In fact, EA was offering buyers the demo as a pre-order bonus for the weekend and the first day on Friday was a major disappointment indeed.

The surprise for the gaming community is the lack of preparation showed by all concerned with a major title such as Anthem, poised as it is to take on the almighty Destiny and  more!

For the selected few buyers of the game, Anthem is as promising as it was hyped to be. Developers it appears have gone by their word to be more than Destiny clones!

Award-winning 0xWarriors is coming to TRON!

Tron’s investment of $100 million in its Tron Arcade could be deemed as a good investment, since a lot of gaming, entertainment firms and developers are attracted to the Tron blockchain through it.

The current addition is OxGames, an investment firm based in Cyprus that helps in the development of games. Tron blockchain is one of the fastest blockchains with high scalability which is the reason for their choice.

One of its games OxWarriors will be launched in Tron’s blockchain even though that its Beta version is already available on the blockchain. The game enables gamers to trade items like bludgeons and swords which are used in the game by fighters to win and participate in events within the platform.

In a tweet, Tron Arcade wrote:

“The 0xGames team has now set its sights on using TRON’s technology to improve their decentralized gaming experiences.”

Commenting on this development, CEO of OxGames, Sergey Kopov said that:

“Apps based on blockchain that could boast really high popularity haven’t been released yet. What we’ve seen over the recent months is that trading and mining enjoyed less demand due to the cryptocurrencies’ downward trends, however, decentralized games have certainly been on the rise. They are likely to become the driver behind mass blockchain adoption in the future.”

This addition follows the migration of the largest gaming platform in Ethereum, EtherGoo to the Tron blockchain. Presently, Tron blockchain is the most active blockchain ahead of EOS and Ethereum.

Latest Update on the Rumored Xbox Scarlett Console

Reports on Microsoft from unknown sources rumored last year a cloud game streaming service which is to be called ‘Xbox Scarlett Cloud’ and stories about a next console for the company which will be made mainly for the cloud game streaming service.

According to stories around the console may have basic hardware inside which can enable streaming of games from the cloud servers and do other duties. Also, it was believed that the console might feature front-line silicon. However, there are now new rumors of Microsoft to present separate CPU and GPU parts for the Xbox Scarlett.

The console is supposed to use an Arcturus 12 GPU featuring 64 ‘Arcturus Engines’ and a total of 4,096 GPU cores, as told by a Reddit take on the rumored Microsoft Xbox Scarlett console. If this is true then, we are in for a killer graphics chip contrasted with Xbox One X powered Scorpio graphics processor’s 2,560 GPU cores.

Moreover, others like PCGamesN says that Microsoft may be distinct graphics part of the Xbox Scarlett because of the total size and the believe that chip will be compound. Other theories going around shows that the new Xbox may present 7nm Zen 2 CPU cores and may even be seen with the making of a system-on-a-chip that integrates both a 7nm processor and all these powerful graphics that most of the times are complicated in making and extremely expensive. This bodes well looking at what competitors often.

Anyway, these are all just rumors that are just going around but, reports say, indeed, Microsoft will release a conventional dedicated Xbox console together with the entire graphics and processing hardware inside the box though and not heard concerning the both. All the same, with much patience, we await the exciting news about precisely the Xbox Scarlett at E3 2019
