Petroglyph’s newest free-to-play Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) title, Rise of Immortals, is now in open beta. The final round of testing will help add that last bit of spit shine before launch in the next few weeks. All participants will receive 1,000 Petroglyph Coins at launch, as well as an exclusive Immortal skin for using during the beta and as a launch add-on. To participate, simply register at the official website, http://www.riseofimmortals.com.
Steam isn’t the only outlet with sales going on. Winter Wolves has sent word that they have joined with Wadjet Eye and Hanako Games to offer four of their sci-fi titles in a bundle offer. Bionic Heart, Date Warp, Gemini Rue, and Planet Stronghold (more info below) are all going for $39.99, making for a 50% discount. The sale ends July 10.
Outlets on the Internets and across the land have fallen victim to relentless dragon-punching today with the launch of Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition. Now available on store shelves and online at the Capcom Store, Steam, Gamers Gate, and more, the $39.99 follow-up to Super Street Fighter IV adds four characters (Yun, Yang, Evil Ryu, and), balance updates, and an enhanced Replay Channel. Super never found its way onto PCs, so this is an even more substantial release than its console counterparts, as Super introduced 10 new characters, two new online modes, and extra bonus stages to the base game. Prepare your thumbs, PC gamers. Prepare them well.
OC ReMix celebrates 15 years of NiGHTS with new album, seeks to right Internet wrong for Final Fantasy composer
OC ReMix is celebrating the 15th anniversary of Sega’s on-rail yet freeform racer Nights properly, and that’s with an album of remixed tracks. The groups 26th arrangement album, NiGHTS: Lucid Dreaming, features two discs of remixes done in a variety of styles, ranging from new jack swing to chiptune. In addition, there are two bonus karaoke instrumentals and a collaboration with vocals from nearly 30 fans. Album director Stevo Bortz also teamed up with Lynne Triplett and Niyazi Sonmez from NiGHTSintoDreams.com to bring over 30 pieces of art to spruce up the album case, one of which is being used as this post’s header—thumbs up, ‘Keiiii.’
Fallout: New Vegas will be getting its third DLC release, Old World Blues, next month. Set to launch on Live, PS Network, and Steam on July 19, the latest foray into the Mojave will send players out into the Big Empty to investigate the feared desolate wastes.
