Visiting comedian Jean-Bart de Molinaire this week! The MC was on duty during the live episode. As a result, we found out that he had tested some versions of E3. And of course we had to find out more about that!
Vampire Survivors animated series
The hit game Vampire Survivors is getting its own animated series. Although the game itself has very little narrative, media company Story Kitchen sees a future in the franchise. In itself, the lack of a story could give the creators of the series a chance to create something epic themselves. Creator Luca Gallante was really excited and calls it a “dream come true”! The recently released DLC trailer for the game already shows that the characters are perfect for an animated series.
Fall Guys Season 4 arrives this week. This means not only new content, but also a new creative mode that gives players the tools to build their own level. The level editor was introduced during the Fall Guys live stream and showed a lot of possibilities. In addition to the placement and rotation of objects, most objects can also be completely modified in terms of color and theme. The necessary items to be able to load a level are the checkpoints and the starting and ending line and it should be possible to complete the level. Mediatonic said they’re using the same editor to create the official levels and already have 50 new rides ready for the new season. Creative Construction will be released on Wednesday, May 10th.
What’s a single player game without DLC these days? There has been a lot of news this week about additional content coming. After a somewhat bumpy launch, Saints Row will get “The Heist and The Hazardous” as DLC this week. It is the first of the three-story DLCs in the expansion pack. Forspoken will release their DLC on May 26, titled “In Tanta We Trust”. In it, the main character Frey is sent back in time to a time before the main game’s story. Atomic Heart will also receive additional content this summer. We don’t have a title yet, but we do have a 20-second trailer!
