The self-described TMO—Tiny Multiplayer Online—will differ from other MMOs and instead focus exploration and companionship, two themes that the studio is more than familiar with.After around four years of work, Might and Delight have released Book of Travels’ first-ever gameplay trailer. It’s the first time that backers—and wider fans—have seen the game in action.

Gotham Knights Confirms Good News for Single-Player Gamers

gotham knights confirms good news for single-player gamers

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Gotham Knights was officially announced to great fanfare earlier this year, when a teaser trailer and gameplay footage debuted during the DC FanDome virtual convention. While we’ll still have to wait a while for the game’s release, more details surrounding its gameplay experience have gradually been coming to light. Among those is the fact that the game will operate as a two-person co-op — but according to the game’s developers, that won’t be mandatory. As senior producer Fleur Marty told IGN earlier this year, the narrative of Gotham Knights is able to be experienced completely in single-player, if someone chooses to not go online during gameplay.”Yes, absolutely. That you can also completely experience in solo if you want to, you’re not going to miss out on anything,” Marty revealed. “If you’re playing single player, you can be offline if you want to. We think that teaming up and living that dynamic duo fantasy can be also a really great experience for players, but we won’t force it on them.”This will surely delight a fair share of single-player gamers, especially those who might not want to rely on a randomly-matched stranger to be able to engage with a certain …

Gamers prefer single-player games, according to Sony’s internal data

gamers prefer single-player games, according to sony’s internal data

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Despite the massive popularity of multiplayer online games, a leaked report from Sony seems to suggest that gamers prefer single-player games instead.

This is according to documentation distributed by Sony to developers in 2019, as obtained by Vice, which features internal tracking data that showed PlayStation 4 users spending more time on offline games compared to online modes. “Single-player is thriving,” Sony claimed in the presentation.
The company’s research also noted that the single-player game experience did come with its caveats, and players pointed out four key issues:

“No idea how long I might need, don’t play unless I have 2+ free hours”
“Takes a lot of time to scan through long help videos when stuck”
“How to engage socially without risk of spoilers”
“Forgot what I was doing in this game last time, hard to get back in”

Advertisement “In reality, most people have jobs. Or kids. Or school. Or all of the above,” Sony added. “Often, free time comes wedged between other obligations. An hour before bed. A 30-minute break between homework assignments. A few minutes before your online [multiplayer] match.”
It appears that the data seems to have likely influenced the creation of the PlayStation 5’s Activities feature, …

Since it was first revealed back in June 2019, Immortals: Fenyx Rising — or, as it was originally known, Gods and Monsters — has gotten a lot of comparisons to Breath of the Wild. While I kind of see it, I guess, the reality is that Immortals: Fenyx Rising is a lot more than just another Zelda-like. Sure, there are lush fields to traverse across and monsters to battle, but on the whole, this game feels like a different beast entirely.
In fact, if we’re comparing Immortals: Fenyx Rising to anything at all, the two influences that jumped out to me most would be God of War or Assassin’s Creed.

The God of War comparison is probably the more obvious of the two. After all, this is a game where the protagonist — the titular Fenyx — is battling a Greek god (or however you want to classify Typhon) as the big bad, and along the way you’re battling all kinds of creatures from Greek mythology. Immortals: Fenyx Rising is a lot less bloody, but it’s pretty clear that …
