theHunter: Call Of The Wild Has Some Amazing Visuals

Posted on January 26, 2017 by Les Major

theHunter Call Of The Wild

Sport hunting titles seem like they’ve been around forever. I remember back in the 90s playing Deer Hunting simulators that felt like DOOM mods. It’s a genre that has quite a history. Even GTA 5 had deer hunting, let alone the entire hunting section in Yakuza 5. That long lineage makes it difficult to create something new. theHunter: Call Of The Wild is a game that has been in development for a decade, with much of it’s development cycle coming from Expansive Worlds free to play version of theHunter.

One thing I find to be a wonderful addition about theHunter series that will hopefully carry over into this new release is that you are also armed with a camera. It may sound silly to mention with a game that is geared towards hunting very specifically, but it is a way to open up this amazing terrain to a wider audience. I don’t think there is any reward per say for photographing the wildlife and beautiful surroundings, but it’s such a large and lush environment that it is a wonderful option to give players.

The game boasts 50 square miles of varied terrain to explore. It sounds like this title is even rendered in the same engine as Just Cause 3! That’s a lot of natural splendor to take in. Anyone who knows me knows I just want to wander off and explore this vast wilderness. Just look at the trailer below! That’s all in engine content!

Naturally it’s not all exploring the forest and potential photography. This is a selection of rifles, handguns and even bows to use in the game that can be customized with scopes and various ammunition types. Your character can also unlock new skills and equipment along the way. As usual, the game allows you to track animals as well or even use scents and callers to lure them out. I haven’t experienced the hunting stealth aspects of the game yet but we do hope to get some hands on time soon to see how theHunter: Call Of The Wild plays.

The release date for Steam has been set for February 16th, 2017.

Posted on January 26, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

Windows PC players will be able to explore the world of Paramitia as one of million potential Warriors of Light in the Steam port of Mobius Final Fantasy. As they follow the path set out before them  players are guided by are these disembodied voices commanding the Warriors of Light to continue their quest, are these apparitions really on the level? The whole narrative sets an interesting precedent for online only Final Fantasy titles, sure in FFXIV everyone is the main character, as far as lore is concerned, but in the world of Mobius there are thousands or millions of contenders but only one true WOL and the rest are doomed to fail.

Battles in Mobius Final Fantasy draw from other games in the series – with common items, summons and spells making an appearance but what really sets Mobius apart from other entries in the franchise is the fact that its battle system is turn based +  card based. Players can have multiple jobs – each with their own unique decks of cards. Players will have to stack the cards in their favor by unlocking new cards by completing quest and defeating monsters in order to survive the main scenario. and build the best possible decks The cards themselves use different base elements such a stone, ice, fire, cure and more which can lead to interesting strategic options.

Mobius Final Fantasy was originally released on iOS and Android and has multiple free to play chapters available for play. Users on Steam who login to the game will not only be able to claim some freebies including ability tokens and other rarities but also participate in the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake cross over event.

Here’s the Steam trailer, the game will arive on Feb 6th.
