Phantagram and Blueside Studios released Kingdom under Fire: Circle of Doom in Euroland today, while it has been available in the US for some weeks now. I got my hands on it, and inside you'll find a couple of minutes from the introduction of the game. With some luck, I will be able to get help to record some nice online multiplayer co-op sessions this weekend too! A demo of the game is also available on the Marketplace for those who want to try it out.
Kingdom under Fire: Circle of Doom is back with this new gallery showcasing the characters Duane and Leinhart. Also worth mentioning, the game went Gold today. Update: Added 2 trailers showing these 2 characters in action. Update 2: Even more images, artworks and videos!
Microsoft sent us a preview build of Kingdom under Fire: Circle of Doom a few days ago, and after a few hours of gameplay I'm still not sure what exactly Blueside wanted to do with this game. On one side there is a very good customization system for the character and the weapons, and on the other some mindblowingly boring and repetitive fights. If you've played Ninety Nine Nights, imagine the last level in the forest, without the invisible walls bugs thankfully, and you mostly get what I played so far. Of course it's a preview, so some things can still hopefully change, and one can hope they'll fix the tearing too.
Enjoy this first video, with more to come today. Update: Second video online. The third and last one will be up sometimes tonight. Update 2: Last video online, showing a level with some quite gross enemies, along with an equally gross boss fight.
Snoopers always loved to dress as a woman. That's why he was the first volunteer to play some Kingdom under Fire: Circle of Doom as a little elf girl. We caught some footage of his twisted fantasy. And we loved it too.
Kingdom under Fire: Circle of Doom is of course playable at Microsoft's booth, and it's really quite a departure from the previous episodes. Update: Added the trailer. Update 2: Added a new batch of images.
Blueside has updated the official website for Kingdom under Fire: Circle of Doom, and they've added a bunch of new stuff. A 720p version of the TGS trailer has been made available, together with a bunch of images. The 720p version somehow makes the game look much better than the low-resolution one did.
Microsoft released this trailer of Kingdom under Fire: Circle of Doom, showing some environments and single player action. It seems like they've changed the gameplay alot as they promised, compared to the old games.
This weeks Famitsu also brings first look at new Kingdom Under Fire game subtitled Circle Of Doom. Although this game will be more of Action RPG with dungeon exploring elements unlike previous KUF titles. KUF:COD release is to be expected in Summer of 2007.
@Sdarts: Heat is a barrier both for PC and consoles. We succeed in making things smaller, but it's the heat barrier that has to be overcome. (11 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: there needs to be a breakthrough in transistors before a huge next step will be possible. The next consoles will not have the power of a gtx980ti simply because of heat problems. (11 Hours ago)
ThouThough only a few people would be able to run it, even among PC gamers, which is not viable financially. Hence why I'm thinking of the next generation of consoles. (12 Hours ago)
@alimokrane: Yes, but I meant that even now PC can do so much more. If an amateur can do that much with an injector in 7 days, you can bet DICE can do 10 times better with the source code, engine, etc (12 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: Of course you can do more with more powerful hardware. (12 Hours ago)
But at the end of the day, that's not feasible. Consoles is where the vast majority of sales are, so first we need more powerful consoles, which in turn will drive PC titles' technologies forward. (12 Hours ago)
@droezelke: Crysis 3 will be a 3 years old game in February next year, and it's still one of the best - if not the best - looking games. I agree AAA companies could do much more with PC titles. (12 Hours ago)
