Come Mow Down the Dead in Outbreak

Many gamers out there remember the days either recently or in the distant past were part of our everyday gaming was to make sure we took down hordes of zombies. Well, it is that time again, Dead Drop Studios, is bringing us Outbreak. A game in which you can either play solo or online co-op (up to four players).

You will find yourself in a hospital where something has happened. You will choose between four playable characters, each with their own set of unique skills. There will be many twists and turns to this game, and you're going to have to survive through all of them.

Oh and to make things all that more challenging, you will have to complete this game with limited inventory space, no in-game pausing, several challenging puzzles that will stop you in your tracks, and finally you will only have 1 chance at this, that's right you only have 1 life. If you die, it is truly game over.

This game is scheduled for release January 17th on Steam (PC Only). It will be going for a discounted price of $10.49 for the first week, and then will be $14.99 afterwards.

Paladins Getting a New Map

For those of you out there who have taken Paladins for a spin you might have noticed that there seems to be a limited amount of maps to master, and you've probably been yearning for more. Well, there's some good news, it turns out that Hi-Rez wants you to have a new map. Although at the time of me writing this I don't know when this map will drop, it is coming soon. Let me introduce you to Stone Keep.

The thing I see first, and causes all kinds of questions is how high can I actually get on this map, where will I be able to perch and hopefully rain down hell upon my enemies? I'm also very interested to see how the map is actually mapped out, how does the lane snake through, and where are all the ambush spots? I guess we will find out when this map/patch drops.

A New Smite Event Starts Soon

If you've been playing Smite recently you will remember that there was the Odyssey Event that was basically running up to the World Championship. Wel,l that's now gone, if you haven't noticed, and the home screen of the game just looks a little bit lonely. Have no fear though, there is an upcoming event that will be starting January 17th.

 

This board game is called The Path of the Phantom Queen.

To complete the Path of the Phantom Queen, you must take part in an ancient magical board game, full of traps and treasures. Each square has its own quest, reward, or trap. Complete a quest to roll the dice and advance... or retreat, if luck is against you.

Now if this is anything like the last event you're going to be able to move one spot per 24 hours. This of course means you need to come back more often to the game (clever, very clever). There is one thing that I do need to make you aware of and that this isn't free. This will be made available to you in one of two ways. You will have to be a Twitch Prime member, this will unlock it for you once the event starts, or you will need to shell out 1000 gems.

There are some immediate benefits for all that partake in this event and that is that you will automatically unlock:

  • Oak-Seer - Exclusive Artemis Skin
  • Spriggan - Exclusive Terra Skin
  • Limited Celtic Loading Frame
  • Limited Celtic Music Theme
  • Limited Druid Shrine Pedestal

So if Smite is your jam, you might want to jump in on this, starting Jan 17th.

The Morrigan Arrives in Smite

It has been a while since a new pantheon was introduced into the world of Smite, and now we have the start of the Celtic pantheon. The god chosen is probably one of the biggest/influential ones in that pantheon. The Morrigan.

Being that I'm an off again on again Celtic mythology kind of person I have to say that simply knowing what she does in that mythology is pretty spooky, and I was intrigued to know what all she could do in Smite. I have played around with her and although there are those who would scream "OP" based solely on the trailer I'm going to have to differ on that opinion. Sure, if you know how to play her you can probably cause some serious havoc, the thing is that you can really say that about almost any god in the game. 

The thing is when someone sees something new and different and perhaps a mechanic or skill foreign to them that they are going to think that in some way it will break the system. I just don't see it after playing a couple of games with her. Now that's not to say you're not going to run into those players who are already The Morrigan "experts" and will be throwing their opinion and belittling the slightest wrong move you make, but that's about par for the course when anything new comes to a game with a competitive component.
