Horns of the Reach: The Elder Scrolls Online Update

Horns of the Reach: The Elder Scrolls Online Update

The Elder Scrolls Online may have had a slow start but things picked up, and quickly. This massively multiplayer online game has been brought to new heights and a brand new DLC game pack is almost here, Horns of the Reach.

Horns of the Reach is the latest content from ZeniMax Online Studios and the community couldn’t be happier. Quickly following the massive Morrowind expansion, the Horns of the Reach DLC will be available on all platforms this August. It will be available on the Crown Store and included with an ESO Plus Membership. This DLC will offer players a chance to defend the town of Falkreath and so much more.

New Dungeons

Rumored to have been created by Daedric Prince Hircine, Bloodroot Forge is the first of two new dungeons coming to the Elder Scrolls Online. According to the official ESO website, the forge is rumored to be able to “create weapons of unbelievable power”. It will be the adventurers’ job to battle their way through thick vegetation and lava filled halls to reach the forge and stop Gherig Bullblood’s plans.

The second dungeon making its way to this incredible world is Falkreath Hold. This is a town under siege and it’s the player’s job to fend off the hordes ofhorns of the reach, eso, dlc, update, gigamax, gigamax games Domihaus the Bloody-Horned. As adventurers fight their way through the town, they will arrive Jarl’s Hall where they must rip away the warlord’s hold over Falkreath.

 

Both of these dungeons will be available on normal and veteran difficulty. They will also include the veteran hard mode for the last boss. Players can expect new loot that includes unique item sets, monster sets, and achievements.

PvP

In what is ESO’s 15th update they will be including new PVP content as well. Additional content will be added to the 4x4x4 game mode along with a new map, Arcane University. This new map is set in a college in the Imperial city. Players won’t need the Imperial City update to play the Arcane University.

The DLC includes a new battlegrounds game mode called, Chaosball. Fast-paced and grueling this new game mode sounds like it will be an interesting addition to ESO’s PvP portfolio. Players on each of the two teams will be tasked with trying to grab the ball before the other team has a chance. The longer a player can hold onto the ball, the more points they will generate for their team. The ball also comes with a health and armor debuffs while simultaneously causing damage to the player holding the ball and their entire party. Unfortunately for some, this battleground and game type will only be available for those who own the Morrowind expansion.

Quality-Of-Life Improvements

Along with all of the additional content explained above, the developers are adding a few quality of life improvements. A system to better keep track of which attacks are yours, the option to cancel research mid-way and banks will now accept Writ vouchers and alliance points are just some of the most noteworthy. Usual bug fixes will also be included in the Horns of the Reach. 

It looks as though ESO might have done it again, but fans will have to wait until August to see for sure. Be sure to check back on GigamaxGames.com to stay up to date with the latest announcements as more details become available. Also, you can expect to see even more ESO videos from the Gigamax Crew on the upcoming DLC.

City of Brass Announced by Uppercut Games

City of Brass Announced by Uppercut Games

Indie developer Uppercut Games, a team comprised of former Bioshock developers, has announced their latest adventure ‘City of Brass’. This upcoming first person rouguelite adventure puts an Arabian Nights twist on the genre that’s a welcomed change from the typical dungeon delves. The City of Brass is an extremely dangerous place for wary adventurers but can prove rewarding for those who take on what lies beneath the sand. Players can expect to take on a variety of dangerous spirits and be forced to avoid deadly traps on their quest to achieve wealth beyond their wildest dreams.

The player will take the role of a determined and cunning thief armed only with a trusty scimitar and a whip which can be used to disarm, trip, or stun enemies. Gameplay sounds very much like the Prince of Persia series, requiring the hero to swing across gaps, climb up objects, and destroy barricades in his journey to lay claim to the countless treasures. Traps will also be littered throughout the procedurally generated map including sharp blades to slide under, spears that must be dodged, and the stereotypical arrows coming out of holes in the wall. Players will also have to avoid crumbling ledges and poison gas traps, but all of these obstacles can be used to gain an advantage over enemies, if approached tactically.

Final Thoughts

The team behind the game sounds incredibly passionate about the project with the lead designer, Ed Orman offering more insight into the game, “Developing a game with multiple, interacting systems that players can freely combine feels like a return to our roots, drawing on our experiences working on BioShock and many of our other favorites. Players must learn how to use the traps to kill their foes, and even turn enemies against each other. You’ll perish in the City of Brass – often, and quite horribly – but as your skills improve and you discover new ways to cheat death, you’ll return to fight another day.”

This adventure is expected to release this fall and we here at Gigamax can’t wait to start our journey through the desert. It is always exciting to see a passionate group of indie developers take on a dream project, and that’s exactly what this game sounds like it will be. This title is sure to impress so be sure to keeping check back for more information on City of Brass!

Overwatch’s Doomfist: Meet the Brand New Fighter

Overwatch’s Doomfist: Meet the Brand New Fighter

After a big origin story reveal last week, Blizzard surprised everyone and made the long awaited antagonist, Doomfist, playable on the Public Test Realm (PTR). This powerhouse is a welcomed addition to the already jam packed character roster. Mixing melee with a bit of ranged makes Overwatch’s Doomfist a formidable opponent. To herald the announcement, Blizzard released a short animated clip that shows the characters escape and how he got put in jail in the first place.

Dommfist: An Origin Story

Doomfist’s origin is a bit of a sad one. Once a highly intelligent and charismatic public figure, Akande Ogundimu, was born to a wealthy family that owned a prestigious prosthetic technology company. Ogundimu expanded his family’s company to new levels and in his free time dedicated his life to learning various forms of martial arts. After the big Omnic Crisis he unfortunately lost his arm which was quickly replaced with a good ol’ robot arm. But because this is a bad guy origin story, the robot arm made him ineligible in the martial arts tournaments he once held close to his heart. Eventually trying to fill this void led him into the arms of the evil mercenary company, Talon, which he quickly took over his business. After years of running the mercenary group he was taken down by our heroes over at Overwatch and locked up until his recent escape.

Overwatch's Doomfist

Combat and Abilities

Doomfist has a host of abilities available to him in order to take out the competition. His main weapon is a short range “Hand Cannon” that is like a shotgun version of the mega buster. Not very good at a distance, this gun is able to close the gap for the character to start using his Doomfist gauntlet, the real damage dealer. Doomfist is also able to close the gap with his seismic slam ability that lets him leap through the air and upon landing, nearby enemies will be dragged toward him. Once up close the anti-hero can use his rising uppercut ability to deal massive damage and launch his opponents into the air. Another handy move in his bag of tricks is the rocket punch, which deals a ton of damage after a short charge and will do even more if the enemy hits the wall. Doomfist will also gain shield charge upon successful ability hits and his devastating ultimate, meteor strike, sends the character to the sky to come crashing back down killing all that land in the blast radius.

Doomfist sounds like an awesome and unique character but that’s not surprising considering Blizzard’s recent additions to the game. This launch follows up their recent “Lunar Colony DLC” and fans can’t wait for the antagonist to be available to all. Currently, Doomfist is only available on the PTR but Gigamax will be sure to have footage when he launches on the PS4 so be sure to keep checking back for more info!

Destiny 2 – How Bungie Plans To Improve

Destiny 2 – How Bungie Plans To Improve

Destiny 2 is nearly here and Activision shared some thoughts on how they plan to improve on the game’s design. The  original Destiny has been an insanely popular shooter ever since it dropped on the PlayStation 4 in 2014. The great graphics and exciting gameplay were able to keep players interested for a while but the community thrived on new DLC and post-release content. Slow to release and sometimes a let down, the community wanted more from these costly expansions and Destiny 2 is expected to address these issues.

Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg shared some important thoughts with GI.biz, and it could point to more frequent and higher quality post-release content for Destiny 2. “I have not been happy with the cadence [of new content].” Hirshberg said. He continues on to explain “We got a lot right with Destiny 1, but one of the things we didn’t do was keep up with the demand for new content. I feel like that, as great as [DLC packs] The Dark Below. House of Wolves, The Taken King, and Rise of Iron all are, clearly there was appetite for more.” http://bit.ly/2uHGRqi

Teamwork Makes The Dream Work

They aren’t just going to set big goals without any planning. Activision created a team of different studios to work alongside Bungie to produce higher quality and more plentiful content. High Moon, developers of the previous-gen versions of Advanced Warfare and Vicarious Visions which has up until now been exclusively working on the Skylanders series will be included on the new Destiny 2 post-release content team. Both of these developers are experienced and High Moon already has experience working with Bunie with the original Destiny.

It would be nice to see more quality and expansive DLC’s for Destiny 2 after release. What would be even better is if Destiny 2 comes with a healthy amount of content on its own. We’re in a new era of gaming where DLCs drive the success of nearly any game forward. However, it is nice to see a developer strive to make these industry standard game additions worthwhile for the gamers.

With more information coming out about Destiny 2 almost every day, be sure to check back on Gigamax for the latest gaming updates.

Data Miners Find Aliens in Grand Theft Auto 5

Data Miners Find Aliens in Grand Theft Auto 5

After many years of fans digging through code and searching every single inch of Grand Theft Auto 5, one group has finally found the elusive green extraterrestrials. Staying true to the nature of the series, this discovery involves some malicious deeds.

Last month saw the release of the latest Grand Theft Auto 5 multiplayer update, Gunrunning. Along with the patch came a few new weapons, a couple vehicles, and giant underground bunkers. But a dedicated group of data miners wasn’t satisfied, they needed to look deeper. That’s where a file was discovered that hinted of an alien UFO crashing just outside of the military base, Zancudo. This discovery drove players to finally figure out the long standing mystery of the alien egg.



GTA 5 Modding and mystery hunting group, Team Guru, spent weeks figuring out how to activate the various pieces of Alien code they found in the game. After many long hours of coding the team was able to use a tool created by the Guru member Polivilas to switch in game variables until they forcibly opened an alien supply mission with brute force.

You can see a quick video of the mission below:

As you can see, the mission isn’t the most exciting in the world. It involves players heading to a predesignated zone to gather supplies, and that’s where the mysterious alien egg comes in. When the group arrives, they find a crashed UFO surrounded by the bodies of dead soldiers and scientists. Players are then tasked with stealing the alien egg from the crash site and escort it to a safe zone. Aliens will spawn after the egg is grabbed and the crew will need to gun down their assailants. A fairly standard mission, but the sense that a long journey is finally over satisfies more than anything else.

Many are happy with this information but some can’t help but feel a little cheated. While it doesn’t really justify years of searching, most fans are hopeful that this is just the beginning of aliens in GTA 5. Could we see a big space update in the future? MAYBE! Gigamax will be sure to have the coverage so make sure to keep checking back.
