Guild Wars 2 Closed Beta Comes to China March 11

Hit fantasy role playing game Guild Wars 2 will finally be making its way to the Chinese mainland on March 11, when the closed beta kicks off, reports Polygon.

In China, the operation of the game shall be overseen by KongZhong Corporation; the game will follow the same purchase based, subscription-less business model that it pioneered and then went on to dominate in the west following its 2012 release.

Guild Wars 2 China’s operation general manager Atlantis Lai said, “Given the game’s high quality and beautiful design, compared with free-to-play and time-based pay-to-play games, this business model, where players purchase the game once and then play it for as long as they wish with no subscription fee, has the highest chance to appeal to the broadest base of players in China. As the most important and famous product in the 2014 China PC market, we believe Chinese players will also recognize Guild Wars 2’s globally renowned quality.”

This makes Guild Wars 2 one of the select handful of games that have actually managed to get a release in China (other notable examples include MMORPG behemoth World of Warcraft, which released in China in 2005); with the Chinese market having opened up to videogames recently though, one can expect more and more games to get official Chienese releases soon.


Guild Wars 2 Ending Its ‘Living World Storyline’ With Origins of Madness

Guild Wars 2, which has been telling its ‘living world’ story for roughly a year now, will finally be reaching its conclusion next week, ArenaNet has announced, reports Polygon.

The finale will be the Origins of Madness event, which will be exactly a week from now on January 21. It will pit players against longtime villain character Scarlet Briar, and introduce a variety of new threats for players to contend with, escalating and raising the stakes.

With the end of the Living World storyline, it is unclear if ArenaNet plans on returning for a potential return to the concept with a ‘second season’ for later this year, or if they will rescind on their earlier statements, and opt to offer traditional story based expansion packs for the game.

Guild Wars 2 has been a success for ArenaNet, and is one of the frontrunners in the MMORPG space along with perennial champ World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.


Guild Wars 2 players rightly upset by Heart of Thorns’ pre-purchase scheme

Update: ArenaNet has responded to the community’s complaints. See their statement below.

“For all players who registered the core Guild Wars 2 game prior to January 23, 2015 and who upgrade their account by pre-purchasing and registering any Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns edition before Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns‘ launch, we will add one additional character slot to your Guild Wars 2 account.”
Original Article: This week ArenaNet revealed the pricing of Heart of Thorns, the first expansion for Guild Wars 2. The game’s community has not responded favourably to the news, and, while it’s hard to judge the size of any particular controversy, this one is undoubtedly big. A post on the r/GuildWars2 subreddit titled “Don’t Pre-Purchase Heart of Thorns” has over 3,000 upvotes. It’s the all-time most upvoted post in the subreddit’s history, above even the expansion’s announcement. On the official Guild Wars 2 forum there are multiple forum threads about the controversy, some of them reaching over 4,000 replies.
The controversy isn’t just about the expansion’s price—although that may be a factor. It’s that the community feel like they’re being ignored as part of ArenaNet’s effort to attract new players. To a certain extent, I think they have a point.
Heart of Thorns isn’t cheap. As a £35/$50 expansion, its price is comparable to many full games. Personally, I’m okay with the cost, because I’ve already had plenty of value from Guild Wars 2. There’s no subscription, and, while I’ve probably bought about £15 of in-store gems over the two years I’ve been regularly playing the game, it never felt necessary to do so. Another £35 for more content, and more free updates, strikes me as an acceptable deal.

The bigger problem seems to be that this £35/$50 price point comes bundled with the base game. For new players, this is an excellent deal. For veterans? When I first saw the press release announcing the pre-purchase price, my first thought was, “OK, but how much is the expansion on its own.” It wasn’t necessarily a rational reaction, but the combination of bundled deal and high cost meant it was the immediate one.
In fact, £35/$50 is the price of the expansion—as ArenaNet has confirmed. The base game is an added bonus for those who don’t already own it. People who don’t yet own Guild Wars 2 are getting an amazing deal. People who do—who have potentially supported the game for three years—are not.
People who don’t yet own Guild Wars 2 are getting an amazing deal. People who do—who have potentially supported the game for three years—are not.
The problem is exacerbated by a number of special editions that don’t offer much in the way of extras. The Deluxe Edition is £60/$75, and comes with an additional character slot—a potentially useful extra—as well as some exclusive skins, finishers, decorations, and one of the miniature figures that are regularly touted as a prestige customisation option. (I’ve always found these weird. I have one for Queen Jennah—the actual queen of an actual place in the game’s story. Why does nobody find it strange that I have a tiny version of their queen following me around wherever I go?)
The Ultimate Edition costs £80/$100 and, in addition to the above, gives 4,000 gems. If you regularly dip into the game’s Black Lion Trading Store, this is a decent discount. But gems aren’t really the prestige item you might expect from the top-tier special edition of a new expansion.
Here’s the thing: we still don’t know a whole lot about the expansion. ArenaNet says that it’s built for repeatable, challenging content, and that the design of the jungle creates more verticality than ever before. But we don’t know how big the expansion will be. When I asked Colin Johanson this, after the expansion was announced, his reply was that ArenaNet wanted to “do a smaller sized area for total scope, and focus really on depth.” Even after a beta weekend, we’re still not fully sure how that depth will manifest.
This is the nature of marketing, of course, and ArenaNet has been revealing new aspects of the expansion over the last few months. But all these elements combined have created the perfect storm for the current controversy. Add to that the fact that ArenaNet offered no warning of the bundle beforehand—even saying, in a now edited FAQ, that you would need a copy of GW2 to play it—and the backlash doesn’t seem unreasonable. It’s great that there’s a low barrier to entry for potential new players. The issue, for most, seems to be about the disparity between the two groups—those who already own the base game and those who don’t—who are paying the same price and getting a vastly different value proposition.
ArenaNet has previously praised their community for their friendliness and support. It’s true, too. By and large, Guild Wars 2 is a nice place to be. Whether or not you feel like long-time players should be rewarded, I don’t think their attitude comes out of petulance or entitlement. And I don’t think it would take much to keep the player-base happy. One of the top comments on that previously linked Reddit thread suggests that it would be enough to give existing owners an extra character slot with a purchase of the expansion’s standard edition.
An MMO’s players are a crucial part of the game. They’re the ones that will be helping the newcomers when they arrive, and ensuring that GW2’s dynamic events and world bosses stay active. A reward for that kind of continued support strikes me as a price worth paying.

Dean Hall’s Ion inspired by EVE Online

Dean Hall didn’t reveal much about Ion at E3 the other week, but we later learned that it would feature an isometric viewpoint, and that if you click on another player their organs might fall out. Thanks to an interview with Polygon (thanks PCGamesN), we now know a little more. Ion is inspired by EVE Online, Minecraft’s Tekkit modpack, and Space Station 13. Also—as with Lord British, famously, in Ultima Online—it will be possible for players to off Dean Hall in the game.

EVE Online’s single, persistent server has influenced Ion, as has Minecrat’s Tekkit, a collection of mods that, collectively, substantially empower the game’s building mechanics. But the initial inspiration comes from Space Station 13, a collaborative space station sim-thing that Hall was raving about to us two years ago, when he first talked about what his next game might be. Speaking to Polygon, he now says of Space Station 13 that “it’s incredibly intricate in what you can do, but also incredibly difficult to learn how to play. That was the core idea of the game”.
Returning to the topic of Tekkit:
“My friends would say, let’s play Tekkit, let’s build a nuclear reactor, and I’d say, why? I want a context. I want it to occur in a broader scheme of things. That’s what Ion is about. It’s taking Minecraft and Tekkit and everyone’s own separate worlds, their own servers, and mashing it all together, linking all the regions.”

You’ll be able to learn the skills to become, for instance, an engineer, miner or doctor in the game, and there’ll be a reputation system so players can make a name for themselves one way or the other. Watching over everything will be The Federation, with Dean Hall acting as president. “The Federation is run by me, by us as the game developers. We play characters in the game”. And yes, players “could kill me as the president of the Federation”.
Unlike DayZ, developers RocketWerkz have a more solid roadmap in mind for Ion, so its development will hopefully be less protracted. “Ion has a solid road map. But I guess that’s why we haven’t released a lot of details. Until we really lock that road map down, we don’t want to say, this feature, this feature, this feature. I can talk to the parts that are there.”

World of Warcraft Adds… Traitors System?

For the Horde? For the Alliance? For me! Blizzard Entertainment’s AAA MMORPG, World of Warcraft, has added traiterous traitors to the game. Well, not really but pretty much that! In an upcoming patch players will be able to act as mercenaries for the opposite faction in PvP allowing players to disguise themselves ad enemy players and fight for the opposite faction. This feature will be available for Ashran and unrated Battlegrounds, lowering the queue time for players that just want to get a quick fix. Player races will also be automatically changed into an appropriate opposite faction race.

GTA 5 PC FOV mod lets you change the first person FOV

Are you wanting to change your first person FOV? This GTA 5 FOV mod should do the trick.

FOV sliders are always a hot topic of dicsussion when new PC games are released and now GTA 5 players can tweak their FOV thanks to a mod that’s been created by DrDraxxy.

It’s worth pointing out that this mod only impacts the first person view while walking about and won’t change the FOV for third person or driving. The mod does come with a word of warning:

“Be advised: We do not yet know the game’s anti-cheating measures – use at your own risk. This mod modifies game memory and as such looks like a cheat, and may even be considered one in online multiplayer as having a higher field of view can put players at a competitive advantage.”

Keep this in mind before you take this for a spin because doing anything with a game’s memory may be viewed as a cheat.

There is an issue currently with the mod where the game can crash on launch but it’s affecting everyone but just be aware that it’s a problem the mod author is trying to rectify. There are bunch of FAQs in the post if you want also check on anything.

To get this working you need to download this file and then follow these instructions but remember if you install this you do so at your own risk.

Find your GTA V installation folder (e.g. C:Program Files (x86)SteamSteamAppscommonGrand Theft Auto V). It should have files such as GTAV.exe and bink2w64.dll in it.
Extract fov.txt and dsound.dll into that folder.
Change the contents of fov.txt to your desired vertical(!) field of view. The default I’ve set is 68, which translates to about 100 degrees horizontal on a 16:9 display. If you only know the horizontal FoV you want, here’s a handy calculator:
All done! Launch the game as usual.
It’s also important to point out that the FoV slider in the camera menu will no longer function as the mod overrides it and you need to wait about 30 seconds after launch for the mod to kick in with the new settings.

After playing GTA 5 in VR yesterday it will be interesting to see if some more FOV tweakge can improve the motion sickness issue I experienced. I’ll likely be reporting back with a further VR video and update shortly.

GTA 5 PC patch coming Friday? Windows User Account fix expected


Rockstar has updated their support page indicating a “fix” is due Friday.

GTA 5 has been out for a few days now and there’s still plenty of PC players experiencing technical issues with crashing, launching and performance. One of the first issues to be identified and acknowledged by Rockstar was the problem with” Installing or Playing GTAV PC On Windows User Accounts Containing Certain Characters”.

Rockstar supplied a workaround but also promised proper update to fix the issue. This evening a note has been added to the Rockstar support pages with a new fix date for this issue. It reads:

“Updated 4/16/15: The expected date for a fix is Friday, April 17.”

There is a possibility that a patch could be released that will address the user account problem but also address other problems with the game. We’ve got out fingers crossed that something will appear on Friday so we suggest you keep a close eye on your GTA 5 install on Steam for any updates just in case.

Update: The first patch has now been released.
