Blitz Brigade

Blitz Brigade is a free to play 3D Shooter developed by Gameloft and is available on PC, iOS, and Android. In Blitz Brigade you can select one of five different classes to play as in heated multiplayer matches to help either the Allies or Axis on their quest for victory. In each match you play you will earn money based on your performance to buy gear for your character classes. Your class choice can also be changed while you are respawning in your match. You can also play in training missions by yourself to get in some practice before you go online and put your skills to the test. Will the Axis or Allies emerge victorious? You decide.


Five Varying Classes: The Soldier is a class that has no specialization and is very versatile, the Gunner has the most health and utilizes heavy weaponry, the Medic can heal allies, the Sniper is deadliest from afar, and the Stealth class can turn invisible and use throwing weapons.

Resist System: As you become more experienced you will earn skill points and can put them into a resist system which boosts your defense against 7 different types of damage.

Camelot Unchained Funds Realm Honors, Announces Stealth

This week marks yet another stretch goal being surpassed for CityState Games’ upcoming RvR MMORPG, Camelot Unchained! The Realm Honors on Steroids promised some of the most comprehensive accolade unlock systems we’ve seen in an MMO, both in terms of accolades as well aesthetically pleasing items to cosmetically show off how awesome you are.

Camelot Unchained Stealth StretchGoal

With that out of the way, Mark Jacobs has at least revealed his long teased plans for a new evolution of stealth gameplay. As promised in the preview, he intends to:

Goal #1 – Design a fun, interesting stealth mechanic, and classes that are not seen as “Easy Mode” by non-stealthers

Goal #2 – Do not design a class that is centered around a strong opener, stun, and vanish with long/unlimited stealth, nor a class that can hide, one-shot, vanish again

Goal #3 – Design a class that has the ability to be very active and sought-after, either in RvR groups or as roamers

Goal #4 – Design a class that some non-traditional stealthers want to play

Goal #5 – Design a class that requires skill to play well, and not just unlimited patience

Goal #6 – Design a system where a gank group of stealthers is not possible

Goal #7 – Design a system that doesn’t affect the launch date of the game


To do this, he intends to use stealth as a means to capitalize on the rock-paper-scissors nature of large scale realm warfare. This would introduce three types of stealth classes (with tweaks across the non-parallel realms) as a counter to an over abundance of healers/mages. While the stealth classes won’t be your typical surprise 1 hit KO assassins, they’ll have enough armor and disabling techniques to let them hold up in large scale warfare without gimmicky popcorn stealth techniques. But heavier melee will still tank them well in large scale battles, until mages take down said heavy armor melee to complete the triangle.

Camelot Unchained Archers

Type 1 – Camo Archers:

As teased in the previous Archer stretch goal, these archers will wear armor fitting their environment to further blend in to their surroundings, letting them choose when and where to initiate battle against their unsuspecting foes.

Camelot Unchained Scouts

Type 2 – Scouts:

Utilizing psychic projections of themselves, this class specializes in fast moving long range eyes to identify and disable foes long enough for their more damage dealing allies to move in for the kill. In major siege warfare, their ability to move through unprotected walls, telekinetically mess with engineering equipment, and otherwise hinder foes will be a force you will want to plan for.

Camelot Unchained Veil Walkers

Type 3 – Veil Stalkers/Walkers:

Utilizing the mechanics promised in the Spirit in the Sky Stretch goal, these mobile assassins would move secretly through the outer dimension to appear behind enemy lines to unleash (literal) hell on the squishier back lines. However, moving through the Veil causes issues if you make too much noise, and while the time in the Veil has no hard limits, the longer you stay in it, and the more you disturb it with noisy weapons, or multiple stealthers in one zone, the more damage you’ll take upon exiting. If too much magic is being cast in the zone, these walkers will gain boons to move through the outer realm with even less resistance.


This stretch goal truly encompasses a lot of Bat Shit Crazy ideas that set Camelot Unchained apart. Even if you’re not a backer or planned backer, the reasoning and concepts alone are worth the read. I highly suggest checking out the full post (when you have a solid chunk of time to do so!) on the official site.

New Skill System Detailed for Drakensang Online: Rise of Balor

New Skill System Detailed for Drakensang Online: Rise of Balor news header

Rise of Balor, the largest add-on in the history of Drakensang Online, will be released in August. Bigpoint, one of the world’s leading developers and publishers of online games, today reveals details about the new skill system in their hack’n’slay game.

The heart of Drakensang Online—the character skill system—has been completely revised and converted to a skill and talent mastery system for all four character classes. There are still three talent trees (Experience, Wisdom, Fame), but they have been redesigned from the ground up. Each class has a new skill, the most powerful one offered so far:

  • Dragon Knight: Frenzy Battle Cry
  • Spellweaver: Frozen Orb
  • Steam Mechanicus: Tesla Turret
  • Ranger: Explosive Shot

Skill Talents
In the old system, talents became available at the same time as the associated skill. Each skill had two talents: players could pick one or the other, but not both. The new skill system offers many more options in character development. As characters gain levels, they will automatically earn talent points to spend on talents. Each skill has three talents that can be purchased with these points. Players can choose freely how to distribute talent points. It is also possible to reorganize them to try out different builds and play styles.

Knowledge Talents
Players still earn Ancient Wisdom through game play and daily challenges, automatically earning Knowledge talent points on the way. Some abilities (like teleport, skill slot, cloak use, mount) have been removed from the list of Knowledge talents and are now free and available to all players through normal game play. There is a combination of shared and unique Knowledge talents for each class, which improve character capabilities and allow for greater customization. A new type of Knowledge talent called Focus talents are split between Agility, Attack, Mobility and Vitality, letting players improve these individual aspects of their characters at an extremely granular level. As with Skill talents, Knowledge talents can freely be changed as desired, encouraging players to experiment and discover their optimal skill and talent configurations.

Fame Talents
Players will collect Fame talent points in PvP battles that can be distributed on Fame talents. Additionally, participation and victories in PvP will earn players Honor Badges, which can be spent for valuable items and gear. Bigpoint has improved the PvP shop, with decreased prices and new offers. Each class has a combination of shared and unique Fame talents, which improve character ability in PvP, allowing for greater customization.

The expansion “Rise of Balor” raises the maximum level from 45 to 50 and adds 150 brand new quests to Drakensang Online. Unanticipated twists and turns guarantee excitement and suspense, even for players who think they’ve already seen everything the world of Dracania has to offer.

Please note: There’s a video on Twitch with Lead Game Designer Jason Durall explaining the new skill system:

In this first test, players will have a chance to experience the first story instances in the expansion’s new area, the Heart of Maguuma Jungle, as well as playtest the revenant, an all-new profession with attacks and abilities that draw their powers from legends of Guild Wars lore. They will be among the first to try out the new elite specializations that introduce new weapons and skills for each profession in the game.

To win the first-ever back-to-back WTS championships, Orange Logo will need to overcome The Abjured from North America, who placed second in Boston, The Civilized Gentlemen from Europe, who placed second at WTS-Beijing, and the super group GLHF from China, who has competitors on their roster with prior WTS appearances. ArenaNet will be streaming WTS-Cologne, with the action called by shoutcasters Jebro and Kaelaris along with analysts Wafflewrath, ChroNick and Sputti, starting at 10:00 a.m. CEST (1:00 a.m. PDT) on the official Guild Wars 2 Twitch channel.
