Star Citizen deep-dives Squadron 42 living AI, opens up Aegis Vulcan sales

This week’s Star Citizen Around the Verse episode is actually more about Squadron 42 than Star Citizen. To illustrate how the game is coming along, CIG digs into the Idris frigate, using it as an example environment where the NPCs are simulating reality with AI schedules rather than just standing around staring blankly into space waiting for you to return.

“The goal of the Idris was always to create a ship for people and we want you to walk around the ship and see these people going about their lives, doing whatever their role is and generally just doing whereas that they wanted or have to do. So in doing that we have every character on the ship has their own name, their own rank, their own role on the ship and that spreads among all the different disciplines.”

Meanwhile, if you had your eyes, heart, and wallet set on the Aegis Vulcan support ship that went up for sale to VIPs last week, rejoice as it’s now available to the plebes too with a brand-new splash page breaking down all its key bits. It’s $185, with packs running up to $950.

Twitch pushes the Overwatch League through viewer promotions

Superheroes and streaming make for interesting bedfellows, but for fans who are used to watching a ton of Overwatch on Twitch, it’s perhaps not that surprising. The two entities are teaming up for a series of promotions designed to push viewership of the fledgling Overwatch League.

Viewers can actually earn special Overwatch character skins and Twitch emotes by cheering on their favorite teams and showering them with Twitch Bits. Players can also link their Blizzard accounts to Twitch and earn one league token per live match finish.

“And some lucky viewers will get 100 tokens for every final map they watch per match — enough to get your favorite Overwatch League team skin in the game,” Twitch said.

And “coming soon” will be a purchasable VIP ticket to the Overwatch League. This will give access to behind-the-scenes info, more in-game items, and other unnamed perks.

Overwatch invites you to a free play weekend

Forget roses and chocolates; the best way to tell a friend that you love them is a masterfully executed kill shot. So for this Valentine week, why not take a loved one into Overwatch for a free date… with DEATH?

Blizzard is hosting a free play weekend for its multiplayer shooter this weekend from February 16th through the 19th. Players on the PC and consoles can jump into the game to give it a try for these four days. And this is no skimpy trial version, either, but the full-fledged product with all of its heroes and maps.

It should also be pointed out that players can level up and loot all they like during this period and that this progress will be saved should they decide to purchase the game. Console players will need to have Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus membership to access the promotion.

Chronicles of Elyria has ways for you to be naughty or nice this Valentine’s Day

Let’s get this out of the way right from the beginning: Yes, Chronicles of Elyria is literally selling players a chainmail bikini.

This is but one of several special Valentine’s Day gifting options that Soulbound Studio is promoting this week. If fans want to express their naughty side, well, there’s the aforementioned bikini and its accompanying whip.

For the more tender and romantic souls, there are necklaces, song birds, and a picnic basket. And if you’re ready to take your relationship to the next step in a virtual game world that hasn’t been released yet, Elyria would like to sell you a “ring of devotion” or a cottage built for two.

This sale will be running through February 19th. Please do not gift Massively OP staffers any bikinis — we’re full up, thanks.

Cross-platform Crusaders of Light to debut on Steam in March

If you were on the lookout for a solid mobile MMO, you might have already checked out last year’s Crusaders of Light on both iOS and Android. It wasn’t a game that broke any genre conventions, but it did look pretty solid and attractive, so that low bar for mobile was met.

Well now the title is heading to a new platform: PC. NetEase announced that it’s bringing Crusaders of Light to Steam in March, at which point the game’s cross-platform capabilities will shine. Players will be able to use the same account for both mobile and PC, allowing seamless transitions between devices.

The studio is also preparing to open up a new North American server called Farroc Camp. If you pre-register for this server, you’ll net yourself $50 worth of in-game gifts when it launches.

Tree of Life has a way for you to earn real gold with Bitcoin-like Boboo Coins

Fancy starting your own Scrooge McDuck gold vault so that you can go swimming in your riches every afternoon? You’re going to need to start somewhere, my friend, and your first step is to play Tree of Life.

The cartoony sandbox is running a bitcoin-inspired promotion with new “Boboo Coins” that drop in game from mining (naturally). These coins show up randomly and there are only a limited supply of them in the game, period. The challenge here is to find and sell as many Boboo Coins as possible within an undefined time limit.

The reward? The studio promised to mail an actual “real gold” Boboo Coin to the house of the player who tops the sales. The press release was a little vague as to the weight or worth of this coin, but still, that would be a pretty great prize to get, no?
