PSA: Grab sci-fi squad game Red Solstice for free

How about a completely free multiplayer game to brighten up your Tuesday? Humble Bundle has you covered.

The games deal site is running a free promotion to hand out copies of 2015’s The Red Solstice (normally, the title retails for $20). The Red Solstice throws eight players together in co-op missions across a hostile Mars. You’ll want to move fast to grab this, because the free promotion will be over on Wednesday.

“We are thrilled to see so many players online once more,” the game’s devs said on Steam.

Overwatch plants Jeff Kaplan in front of a fire for 10 hours and hands out free loot boxes

Overwatch made a bid for players’ attention this busy holiday weekend, and in some ways, it succeeded. For starters, Blizzard decided to gift all players with five free lootboxes (worth about $5 total). All you have to do to get yours is to log into the game by January 1st.

But that wasn’t what had everyone talking over Christmas. No, it was the fact that Game Director Jeff Kaplan decided to stream himself sitting in front of a fireplace for 10 hours doing… very, very little. That didn’t stop Twitch and Twitter from going nuts, as around 40,000 people tuned in to see this spectacle (which was probably inspired by similar Christmas fireplace stunts).

Of course, you don’t have to watch all 10 hours of His Royal Kaplancy. Someone took the trouble to compile all of the truly exciting moments of the stream, and someone else (that’s us) took the trouble to copy and paste that video here below!

Snag a Wild Buster trial key from InselGames and Massively OP!

If you watched “gritty sci-fi hack’n’slash MMOARPG” Wild Buster launch last week and considered giving it a go but hadn’t quite pulled the trigger, then today’s giveaway is for you. InselGames has granted MOP a bundle of trial keys to pass out to our readers just in time for the holidays!

How do the trial keys work? They unlock a version of the game with four heroes and four rows of inventory space but full access to the whole game.

LawBreakers is actually getting a holiday sale and event

LawBreakers just isn’t giving up. In spite of an apparently slumped player population and the exit of one of its founders, the shooter is rolling out a holiday event – evidence of “continued support,” as Nexon puts it.

“Just in time for the holidays, Nexon America revealed that its continued support of the fast-paced, gravity-defying first-person shooter, LawBreakers, includes a festive holiday event through the month of December and into the new year. Players can celebrate the holidays and ring in the new year during the LawBreakers Sleigh the Holidays event which offers fans a limited time discount on the game, double experience (XP) points, and an update to the competitive ranked mode, Boss Leagues.”

The game will be on sale from today into early January on both Steam and the North American region for PS4.

RIFT course-corrects on $100 mount pack while Trion gets into the holiday spirit

Well, that didn’t last long. RIFT has already yanked its controversial $100 random mount packs from the game store following strong opposition from the community. “We put a tremendous amount out for the holiday season. As always, we follow player feedback and LISTEN. We’re also pretty agile, so when the resounding feedback on the Orphiel’s Mount Crate came in, we took it down,” the studio posted.

Lest we become seasonal grinches, we want to pass along the word that Trion is throwing a lot of promotions and giveaways in its MMOs this month. RIFT players who log in before January 4th have a chance of winning a collection of 40 mounts, can enjoy the Fae Yule event, and buy a year of patron status for $99 (which is one mount’s worth! Too soon?).

Trove has login rewards and a Snowfest event, ArcheAge has a prize giveaway for people who poke their head into the game, Defiance is selecting a few players for a jackpot bounty, and Atlas Reactor is doubling up on its XP and discounting its freelancers and skins. Good stuff!

Anarchy Online and Age of Conan host an arrested development sale

Just because an MMORPG’s development has been put into suspended animation doesn’t mean that profit still can’t be made! To wit, check out Funcom’s can-do spirit, which doesn’t take “maintenance mode” for an answer when it comes to holiday sales.

For whatever reason, the studio is holding a sale on Funcom Points for both Anarchy Online and Age of Conan. These titles, you might recall, joined the original Secret World earlier this year in having their active development canceled while nominally keeping the servers running.

Anyway, both games are throwing in bonus points when you buy certain tiers of bundles. Additionally, Anarchy Online has a luxury armor set that it would like to sell you as part of a multi-month membership package.

CCP honors fallen EVE Online developer with fundraiser ship skin

As if CCP Games isn’t struggling enough right now, the studio announced today that it’s lost one of its own: an EVE Online developer and graphics programmer known to the community as CCP Blaze. If you’ve ever warped anywhere or switched on the tactical overlay, you’ve seen his handiwork.

“CCP Blaze, one of our Senior Software Engineers with our Audio & Graphics team, passed away suddenly at the age of just 35, while on vacation in London celebrating his recent engagement. He is survived by his fiancée and one year old daughter here in Reykjavík, and leaves behind an amazing legacy at CCP from his 8 years at our headquarters working on EVE Online.”

The company says it held an internal fundraiser for Blaze’s family over the past few weeks since learning the news, and as of today, it’s also releasing a special fundraising item for the community: a brand-new “Blaze” squadron SKIN set that will be sold for one week only as a one-off for the Armageddon (100 PLEX) and for a five-hull bundle (495 PLEX). Blaze has been written permanently into the lore for the ship skin.
