Please find below updates in brief on a number of games that we have previously reported on.
As we reported yesterday, Oasis Games had decided to bring their latest game, strategy RPG Glory Ridge, to the West after its success in China. To our surprise, rather than waiting a few weeks, the beta for the Western version begins today.
Glory Ridge lets players build their own kingdom and armies for extensive PVP and PVE gameplay. The beta for the free-to-play mobile game is available now for players in North America, South America, and Europe on both Android and iOS.
As promised, Square Enix has released NieR: Automata for the PC today. Set thousands of years after the fifth ending of the first Drakengard game, players must guide their android YoRHa squad members 2B, 9S, and A2 through a post-apocalyptic war against alien machines that threaten humanity with extinction.
For a limited time, those who purchase the Steam Day One Edition will receive an exclusive Valve Character Accessory, as well as other in-game Day One Edition bonus content, including the Machine Mask Accessory, Grimoire Weiss Pod, Retro Grey Pod Skin, Retro Red Pod Skin, and Cardboard Pod Skin. The title also includes Steam achievements and trading cards.
Lastly, The Keep launch contest is still ongoing. Players of the dungeon crawler who finish the game and net all twenty-five achievements can submit a screenshot of their accomplishment to the developers. The first to do so will win a a handcrafted figure of the game’s antagonist, the wizard Watarys, as well as access to all of developer Cinemax’s Steam titles.
As a warning to cheaters, the developers are aware that achievements can be spoofed, and they will be checking the player’s save file to make sure their accomplishment was earned honestly.
