Hawkeye and Beta Content: Marvel's Avengers July Show
Crystal Dynamics held the second Marvel's Avengers gameplay show. In it, they talked about the content that will be available during the closed beta test in August, and how the game will develop after release. So, the developer confirmed that we will have a separate storyline campaign for Hawkeye.
Beta Test Details and Content
The test version of the game contains five zones, which differ in their variety and show the main features of the game, including locations and destructible environments. The test will begin with the mission at the Golden Gate, which we were shown earlier. On it, players will be taught the basics of management, and at the end they will be allowed to fight with Taskmaster. This episode will take just under half an hour to complete.
After the prologue, players will have access to a single-player company and a war zone with the ability to play in co-op. The single player campaign will unfold in North America, but the war zone will be in the USA tundra.
Also, players have access to training grounds known in the game as HARM. In them, an endless wave of enemies will approach you. The last opportunity in beta is the drop zone. This is the closest small analogue of a war zone.
The Hulk, Iron Man, Black Widow and Miss Marvel will be available for the game in beta. The abilities of the heroes can be pumped, as well as pick up more powerful equipment for them.
After release, the game will receive support. The first post-release update will be a separate story campaign for Hawkeye. You can go through it both alone and in co-op.
The beta test itself starts on August 7 for those who pre-ordered the game on PS4, on August 14 for those who pre-ordered it on Xbox One and PC, and already on the 21st for all platforms. The game itself will be released on September 4th.
Achievements Available on the Epic Games Store
While millions of dollars are being invested in Epic Games itself, Tim Sweeney's company still adheres to the logic “the quieter you drive, the further you will be,” and is still slowly developing its store. And while millions of players are asking to enter the basket, the developers, in turn, have finally added achievements to the first batch of games.
At least for now, you can get achievements in Kingdom Come: Deliverance, ARK: Survival Evolve, Killing Floor 2, The Escapists, Death Stranding and Satisfactory.
According to Sergey Galyonkin from Epic Games, this is only the initial stage of adding achievements to the store. A full release of the achievements is slated for this fall. They now show progress and the date of the achievement. In the future, they will be divided into rarity.
Before that, we should be provided with support for modifications, and after the release of achievements, epics will begin to fine-tune player profiles.
More Rumors About Resident Evil Village
Despite the announcement of Resident Evil 8, a group of people inside the studio [or whoever they are] continues to leak new facts about the game. A fresh batch of rumors have been uploaded to the Biohazard Declassified fan site.
Most likely, this time the information came from one of the Capcom ambassadors [members of the exclusive program for participation in closed tests of the studio's games].
In August, we should share with us the official details of the game, talk about the plot and show another veteran of the series.
Gabe Newell chooses XSX, using the words "Just because"
After the development and announcement of Half Life: Alyx, Gabe Newell and part of the Valve team went on vacation to New Zealand. They were stuck there after the coronavirus pandemic began, but they became welcome guests on various local shows. Recently, the head of Valve visited the New Zealand TV show The Project, where he was asked which side he is on in choosing a console.
To this, Newell no doubt replied that he chose the Xbox simply because. He did not give specific reasons. Unless he said that he was not involved in the console war, but would just buy himself an XSX. Perhaps this is due to the fact that the Xbox is now part of a global ecosystem tied to the PC, which is the main platform for the studio.
Plus, now all Microsoft games are released exclusively on Steam. But who knows for sure?
A hidden cutscene about nuclear disarmament was opened at MGSV. It happened naturally
MGSV has asynchronous multiplayer where players build bases and infiltrate aliens. You can also create nuclear warheads to protect your base, but they can be stolen. It is already known that if there are no warheads left in the game world, then a secret cut-scene about nuclear disarmament will open. The game showed it a few years ago by accident due to a bug.
But it is difficult to open it yourself, since for this nuclear weapon all players should not remain on one specific platform. An enterprising group of enthusiasts began to steal warheads in the name of peace and this very cut-scene. They did it.
The closest to zero was the number of bombs in PS3 multiplayer. The website MGSV Nuka Watch monitors the number of warheads on the maps. According to his data, world peace did not last long, and the graph did not even show that there were no warheads left in the game. All armed again in a matter of moments.
That was all the big news this week. Keep calm and keep playing and we'll see you next week ... in the next digests ...
