Game News: H1Z1 is Split Into Two Games and GameTrailers Shuts Down After 13 Years

H1Z1 Split:

Daybreak Game Company has announced that H1Z1 will become two games. "H1Z1: Just Survive" will keep the sandbox survival gameplay, while "H1Z1: King of the Kill" will focus on man vs. man arena murdertimes, like its Battle Royale mode.

H1Z1 was initially planned to become free-to-play, but this is no longer the case. King of the Hill is due to launch this summer and Just Survive is due out later this year - both as full-on paid games with micro-transactions. Anyone who has already purchased H1Z1 in Early Access before the split on February 16th will receive both, but they’ll cost $19.99 each afterwards (still in Early Access).



Titanfall Sequel:

Titanfall 2 is set to release "late this year or early next", according to lead writer Jesse Stern. It will also launch on all major platforms and with a single-player campaign.

A Titanfall spinoff TV show is in the works with Lionsgate TV, the television arm of the Hunger Games production company. "It would be very expensive" though and according to Stern they are "trying to find a way to tell a story in the worlds we want to be in and produce in the TV model."



New Godus(?):

22Cans has released Godus Wars onto steam Early Access. This is a version of Godus that includes combat and micro-transactions (later removed due to backlash). Curiously the original Godus Steam page is now gone, leading to speculation that this was a deliberate attempt by 22Cans to refresh their page.



GameTrailers Closes:

The video game site GameTrailers is shutting down after a 13 year run. They were purchased by Defy Media, who also publish The Escapist, in the middle of 2014. Almost immediately the company imposed layoffs, with more taking place last year.

Game News: Dragon Quest Gets a Play and Wearable Mega Man Helmets Have Been Produced

Dragon Quest Play:

The Dragon Quest series is celebrating it’s 30th anniversary by putting on a stage play. The play will begin in July and perform in Saitama, Fukuoka, Nagoya, Osaka, and Yokohama over the passing months.



Episodic Square-Enix Titles:

Square-Enix has announced that the Final Fantasy VII Remake will not be released as a "full game". Instead it will be released in episodes. Not surprising, given Square-Enix seems to be on an "episodic trend" lately. Back in July 2015 they made a similar announcement about Hitman (2016) being an episodic series, similar to those produced by Telltale Games.

Rumors have also been circulating that the company is planning to do the same thing with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The validity of the Deus Ex rumors is questionable, given that the game is already listed on most retailer websites as a full game.



Mega Man Helmet:

Toy manufacturer Multiverse Studio Inc. has announced the availability of a wearable Mega Man helmet with a padded interior. The helmet is made of ABS plastic with a high polish finish, authentic proportions, and working LED lights. A unique clamshell hinge allows the front and back half of the helmet to easily open up. Mega Man Wearable Helmet will retail for $149.99 MSRP and is expected to release Q1 2016.

We were pointed in this thread to the fact that the Visual Novel needed some cleaning up. So after some discussion it was decided to add a new genre to the VGG Genre database: Walking Simulator.

Over 50 games already got added to this genre, for example: Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, Gone Home, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Journey (2012), The Stanley Parable, ... and many more.
