Humble Bundle and GOG.com cut deals for online games

Looking for a few good deals on MMOs and multiplayer games? Both Humble Bundle and GOG.com are running some sales right now that might cut you a deal on a title you’ve been eyeing.

Humble Bundle’s Sci-Fi Week includes price breaks on No Man’s Sky ($23.99), Osiris: New Dawn ($12.49), the standard version of Elite: Dangerous ($13.49), the commander deluxe version ($31.79), and the season pass for Elite: Dangerous Horizons ($17.99).

GOG.com’s Most Wanted Games Sale isn’t quite as relevant for the online gamer, although you can pick up Grim Dawn for a respectable $7.49, Torchlight for $3.79, and Torchlight II for $4.99.

Grab a freebie Survarium co-op mission key from Vostok and Massively OP!

Early access post-apoc online shooter Survarium is having a good year: Not only is it working on its 0.52 update, which is set to update graphics and the weapons module system, but last fall it pumped out something brand-new to the game: PvE. Co-op mission Dangerous Knowledge is a story-based three-man team mission that explores

“a conflict between Black Market and The Renaissance Army, and also unveils the mystery about secret experiments which lead to creation of the Forest. Specifically for this mission developers created a new map with lots of both open and indoors locations. Developers tried to add an element of exploration into the game, and also let players interact with the world of Survarium.”

Want to check it out? Vostok Games has granted us a bunch of keys for to allow our readers to do just that. The codes each grant three “access keys” to play the new mission, one per account, whether your account is old or new. Click the Mo button below (and prove you’re not a robot) to grab one of these keys!

Star Citizen brings back old ships for sale, asks backers to vote on alpha 3.2’s priority projects

Do you have too much money? Awesome. Star Citizen has some ideas for where you can spend it – say, on some new ships? Some old ships? Some reskinned ships? Some ships you missed the first time ’round? Some ships you want to upgrade to? Some ships you could’ve gotten cheaper if you’d done it ages ago?

“To commemorate the incoming 3.1 patch, we are offering a War Bond option to give you all one final chance to pledge for this selection of flyable ships at their original concept prices,” says CIG. The roster includes versions of the Anvil Terrapin, Tumbril Cyclone, MISC Razor, Aegis Reclaimer, Aopoa Nox Kue, RSI Constellation Aquila, MISC Prospector, and Drake Dragonfly.

Meanwhile, Chris Roberts dropped by the live Reverse the Verse yesterday to discuss the state of the game, compare it to Sea of Thieves (he says SC has more content but is less polished, which sounds about right), and ponder a minimum viable product for the masses who evidently prefer playing video games to testing them (crazy, huh?). To that end, CIG has posted what it’s calling the Alpha 3.2 Feature Survey for backers to essentially allow them to vote on which features the team focuses on for the next-next update.

Star Trek Online knocks off $100 from its lifetime subscription

Picard and crew might not have needed money in the oh-so-enlightened Federation, but if you’re going to grab a lifetime subscription to Star Trek Online, you’ll need more than Earl Grey tea and a flute as collateral. Fortunately, the cost of getting said lifetime subscription has gone down to become more affordable, at least for the next month.

From now through April 5th, players can purchase a lifetime sub to Star Trek Online for just $200. That is a lot, to be sure, but it is also $100 less than Cryptic usually lists it.

The lifetime subscription comes with gold-level status and includes exclusive species, all veteran rewards, a monthly Zen stipend, priority login, another character slot, access to a special Captain’s Table area, and more.

Enter to win a copy of Wild Terra from Juvty and Massively OP!

February was a big month for MMORPG sandbox Wild Terra. Developer Juvty Worlds heavily overhauled the taming and mount system in the game as of its 0.9.50 patch, as well as added new spear types, new damage types for metal armor, destruction mechanics for buildings, new projectile animation graphics, and improved territory control mechanics.

In celebration of the update, Juvty has issued Massively OP a bundle of keys for the B2P game, worth $14.99 apiece on Steam, to distribute to our readers.

Eagle-eyed readers will recall that we tried granting these to commenters earlier today but ended up DDOSed by keyseller bots, so we’re dispatching those that remain in a manner a bit more friendly to site uptime!

There are no regional restrictions, other than the caveat that the game must be available to you on Steam for you to use the key. Read on to enter to win!

Elite Dangerous and RuneScape devs are auctioning off fun perks for a good cause

Multiple gaming studios and groups in the UK have teamed up with the Special Effect charity for #GameBlast18 happening this very weekend, including Elite Dangerous’ Frontier and RuneScape’s Jagex. Special Effect’s main goal is to help people with disabilities to game on through specialized technology.

Jagex has raised over £30,000 (almost $42,000) as of press time, while both it and Frontier are auctioning off goodies for the charity. Scapers may win a tour of Jagex’s studios and an in-game title, while Jagex itself is making its devs do human tricks on Twitch and Elite Dangerous commanders are busy bidding up the chance to name an in-game ship.

“This one-of-a-kind prize will allow you to name a class of Mega Ship in Elite Dangerous,” says the company’s auction listing. “All future Mega Ships added to the game of this class will bear your name for all to see. The winning bidder will also will also get to see this new variant of Mega Ship before anyone else.” It’s currently sitting at £1,021 (almost $1500) right now with about five hours to go. Check out the whole roster of loot on Ebay for a good cause!

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.
