Albion Online introduces The Guardians

albion online introduces the guardians in linux mac windows games

Since the launch of Sandbox’ #MMORPG Albion Online is only a few weeks away. The release will be available for Linux, Mac and #Windows. Hence developer Sandbox Interactive are preparing the #games launch on July 17. Fixing bugs and planning the first expansions to be added in the future. Yet at the same time though, they want to introduce some of the games features. Which is the so-called “Guardians of Albion”. These are powerful bosses which require precise planning. While also taking utmost concentration and tactical skills from the players.

So the Guardians are the true protectors of Albion. While all brought to life by ancient magic and having grown bigger. As well as stronger over the centuries, they now protect the world’s natural treasures. So there are five different Guardians in Albion. Each possesses incredible strength and special skills. Once killed, they turn into a resource node. Providing the player with a whopping 2,560 tier-6 resources. Hence, a raid against these giants might well be worth it.

The Guardians of Albion Online at a glance:

Old White (Hide)

Old White is a massive white mammoth that is spiritually connected to all mammoths in the world of Albion, which have lived in the past and will live in the future. It can be found in tier-6 Hide Dens. While in general considered the easiest Guardian, the players first have to fight their way through several groups of hide mobs until they can face him.

Ancient Ent (Wood)

The Ancient Ent is a massive tree spirit and can be found in tier-6 Tree Groves. With its devastating Piercing Roots, team coordination is key when fighting him.

Rock Giant (Rock)

Found in tier-6 Rock Outcrops in the Highlands biome, the Rock Giant has no melee skills and uses ranged attacks only, like his Earthquake attack.

Enormous Dryad (Fiber)

Players should not be deceived by the looks of this Guardian! The Enormous Dryad can be found in the swamps at tier-6 Fiber Meadows, fighting the players with deadly attacks like Eroding Swamp or Pulsing Thorns.

Ore Colossus (Ore)

The Ore Colossus can be found in the Tier 6 Ore Veins of the mountains. Players should not underestimate him due to his lack of an auto-attack, as his Giant’s Punch and Crystal Swarm have the potential to wipe a party in the blink of an eye!

Hellion releases new trailer for Update 0.2

hellion freleases new trailer for Update 0.2 linux windows games

Since it’s a challenge to get hype for those games without their Linux release. We are still keen to share details about Hellion for #Windows. Due to the #games Unity engine roots set to make a Linux debut, at some point. The new cinematic trailer presents a fresh new take on things in Update 0.2.

While this Early Access release takes place in a distant future. Where mankind is no longer residing on Earth. The new #Hellion cinematic trailer gives viewers a glimpse of the disaster. Since this is humanity’s attempt to build the first interstellar colony. Beginning with intimate shots of the crew’s quarters. While their personal belongings are all over and floating through the cabins. This trailer hints at the dark force. Since the colony with its inhabitants are on the brink of extinction. All set against the backdrop of a looming sun. These odds of survival are clear in the desolation and vastness of space. With humanity’s descent into fear, anger and violence. Hellion’s cinematic trailer suggests that maybe the stars really are better off without us.

Hellion 0.2 Update – cinematic trailer:

While preparing for Hellion for Update 0.2 via Windows. Developer Zero Gravity have been working on the games optimization and stability. Including enhanced survival gameplay mechanics. Even better navigation and flight systems. So the updated build will include a lot of new items and inventory changes. More weapons, doomed outposts as world events, improved ship and station customization. The new content should add multiple hours of gameplay. Both for existing and new players alike.

Since I haven’t played Hellion for a while, these new changes are a fine tease. Ideally gameplay improvements, new content and features. Which is only available on Windows on Steam and Humble Store for the time being. And while we wait for a Linux release, it’s coming later in 2017. We’ll have more details as things become available.

Hellhunter developer unsure about Linux day one

hellhunter developer unsure about linux day-one gaming 2017

Since #supernatural investigative hunting RPG Hellhunter is coming to #gaming in #2017. There seems to be some debate with developer Ballistic Interactive regarding a day one Linux release. Since both the Kickstarter and IndieDB page do list Linux as supported platform. We may not necessarily see a day-one native release. In fact we are missing platform support on the Steam page. Yet the Greenlight page does list Linux, which is a plus.

“At this point in time we are not 100% sure linux will make it for the initial release. Therefore we didn’t add it to the steam page.”

So this sounds fair enough, it’s not a No at all. Since the developer did not mention any drawbacks in the email. We have issued a Discussion post via Steam to show some Tux love. Simply to get some further hype for the day one release and help encourage Ballistic Interactive.
Since their Kickstarter did not succeed, they are using “other funding avenues.” As the team continues to move ahead with the coming 2017 release.

Hellhunter gaming has the player assume the role of a freelance hunter. While building his career towards uncovering the ultimate terror. Since you are tracking a bloody trail across rural Australia. Doing so for almost a decade, following the beast that took your family. Leading to a small town of Windsor Heights. Ever since the reopening of Ravenhall Manor, townspeople have started to go missing. While strange sightings have been recorded around the town. From spectral women beckoning people into the fog, to spiders as large as wolves.

Hellhunter Features

  • Hellhunter is a hardcore single player hunting game. Centralized around investigating and hunting supernatural enemies.
  • Dark & unique art direction, using light & shadows to create a mysterious haunting atmosphere. With carefully tailored animation bringing the game to life.
  • Procedural level generation, mixed with dynamic clue and enemy generation. Making for a massively replayable gaming experience. Clues are logically scattered around the level which the player has to find and decipher.
  • Character progression & customization. Using countless hightech gadgets, weapons and consumables.
  • Contrasting gameplay, starts with careful investigation involving stealth. But progresses to fast paced intense combat by the end of a job.

So in each job undertaking, the level is procedurally generated. Therefore the true identity of the supernatural creature is not revealed. There it is up to the player to explore and investigate. Which ultimately effects the fight at the end of every job. While also creating an intense and unique experience for every hunt. Since death lurks in every corner. Do you have what it takes to become a hellhunter?

While no specific release date has been issued for Hellhunter in 2017. We are keen to share some Linux love and help support that day one launch.
