Darkfall Rise of Agon is live today

Hardcore sandbox Darkfall: Rise of Agon officially launches this afternoon. The story of the game is a victorious one, as it’s one of two games being built by player-organized studios out of the ashes of Aventurine’s original Darkfall, which vanished without much of a goodbye just about a year ago. But don’t take our word for it: The Big Picture Games team has a 13-minute video out today taking gamers through the history of its development.

In conjunction with the launch, the Rise of Agon team joined up with OriginPC for a rather large giveaway for this type of indie game:

“We’re giving 1 fan a grand prize of an ORIGIN PC CHRONOS gaming desktop valued at $2,400, featuring an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti, 30 Days of Game Time in Darkfall: Rise of Agon, and a $50 Domino’s Gift Card! 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive 30 Days of Gametime in Darkfall: Rise of Agon, and a $25 Domino’s Gift Card! Seven runner-up winners will receive 30 Days of Gametime in Darkfall: Rise of Agon!”

The giveaway ends on May 18th, so go enter!

Champions Online’s new sale is a wink and a nod to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Marvel Heroes isn’t the only MMO taking advantage of the launch of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 this weekend. Or maybe it’s May the Fourth that’s got Champions Online agog. I’m going with the former this time based on the look and the tease:

“Guardians! Your galaxy needs you! Having the right gear will ensure neither you, nor your favorite worlds, go boom. Get them now at 20% off! Dress the part, or get powered up. (Soundtracks sold separately!)”

There are plenty of sci-fi flavored costume parts and powers on sale through May 11th, plus Cryptic and PWE are running the Nightmare Invasion event, a Hideouts sale, and a sale on… ghost hair?

DC Universe Online, you’re next, right?

Marvel Heroes releases new skins for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Going to see Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 tomorrow? Marvel Heroes is taking advantage of cross-promotion love with a big Guardians of the Galaxy event and sale you may want to keep an eye on, and critically, all of it is available on PC.

Existing Guardians of the Galaxy-related characters, costumes, and team-ups are half off. There are brand-new new costumes for Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon too, but they’re not on sale for obvious reasons. PS4 players will indeed be able to pick up the new costumes in the Omega beta.

Everyone else can log in over the next week to take part in the Cosmic Chaos event and pick up login rewards (it’s a pair of new themed fortune cards). And if you’re actually playing the relevant toons?

Grab a Paladins Evie Conjuration skin key in honor of the console F2P open beta launch

Hi-Rez MOBA/shooter Paladins officially launches into its free-to-play open beta on console today, meaning gamers on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 can finally join their 8.5M PC counterparts at no cost. The studio is dubbing the game “the most-played new Steam game of 2016.”

In celebration of today’s launch, Hi-Rez has granted Massively OP piles and piles of keys for Evie and her full Conjuration outfit (head, body, and weapon). The best part is these keys will work on all platforms — PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4. Click the Mo button below (and prove you’re not a robot) to grab one of these keys!

Update: Hi-Rez has discovered that the original keys will unlock just Evie’s outfit, not Evie too as intended. We now have a batch of Evie-only keys tucked down below as well, so if you don’t have Evie, grab one of those!

Hearthstone gives away free packs to celebrate 70M players

It’s a momentous week for Hearthstone, which announced that it has now seen 70 million players log into the game across all of its platforms. To celebrate the occasion, anyone (even brand-new players) who logs in this month will be treated to three free Journey to Un’Goro card packs — no strings attached. Sounds like a good deal!

“It’s a good thing that there’s always room for one more, because the tavern has now welcomed over 70 million players!” Blizzard said. “On top of that, with Journey to Un’Goro, Hearthstone had more players playing together on the same day—around the whole world—than at any point in its history!”

To give you some idea of the growth of Hearthstone, the digital card game was at 30 million players in May 2015 and 50 million players by April 2016. So 20 million a year? That’s not a bad trajectory at all.

EverQuest II delays The Menagerie, grants 3X experience all weekend

EverQuest II players know the game suffered some unanticipated and lengthy downtime this week. Daybreak says it was dealing with “technical issues with [its] servers” and thinks it has those licked, but it’s delaying GU103: The Menagerie (as well as the planned level 100 boost promo) to May 9th all the same.

The good news is that today and tomorrow, the game is making up for all that with a massive experience buff.

“To thank you for your patience and support, we’ll be activating Triple XP (AA, Adventure, Tradeskill) for ALL players and ALL servers starting now. This will run until Sunday, April 30, 2017 at 11:59PM PDT (07:00 UTC),” Daybreak writes. “In addition, we’ll be activating Double Ascension Scrolls starting on Monday, May 1, 2017 at 12:01AM PDT (7:00 UTC). This will run through Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 11:59PM PDT (07:00 UTC).

Have fun!

PSA: Get Elder Scrolls Online super cheap through the Humble Bundle this weekend

Thinking about giving The Elder Scrolls Online a go as the march toward Morrowind pushes on toward June? You probably won’t find a cheaper deal between then and now than the Humble Bundle’s prices.

You’re looking at $9.89 for the cheapskate version for people who just want a looksee, but the Gold edition for $29.99 is probably the best deal, since it includes most of (though not all) of the DLC packs to date.

Anybody picking it up?

PSA: Champions Online’s freeform slots are half-off

If you haven’t picked up Champions Online as a free player, you might not know that the game restricts unfettered character creation for F2P. Instead, freeloaders are restricted to pre-built archetypes that don’t allow for the fun of mix-and-matching your own vision.

That is, unless you either subscribe or purchase a “freeform” slot unlock for your account. A freeform slot grants the full privileges of slapping your own build together to see how it functions. And while these slots are usually pretty pricey (around $50), right now Champions Online is holding a half-off sale on freeform slots, bringing the tag down to 2,500 zen (around $25).

The sale is running from today through next Thursday. Also, conspiracy theory, is this sale capitalizing on City of Heroes’ anniversary this week? Hmm…
