Snag a Hand of the Gods: SMITE Tactics Norse pack from Hi-Rez and Massively OP in honor of its Steam launch today!

Hi-Rez’s turn-based strategy card game Hand of the Gods — you might recall it better as SMITE Tactics or even its internal name, Hotgods — is officially coming on Steam. Today, in fact: It arrives on the platform following patch elements much requested by players, says the studio, “including the refinement of Combat Logs and the new additions of Clans and a Deck Tracker.” Yesterday, we wrote about some of the new pantheons coming in the future too; the studio has further elaborated on new cards and the Japanese and Hindu pantheons.

In the meantime, however, we’ve got some free stuff for you courtesy of Hi-Rez: keys for the Norse starter pack:

“The Norse Starter Pack will grant the 3 Norse cards Dagaz, Gift of Munin, and Ratatoskr. These codes can be redeemed in-game and are for PC only. These codes can be redeemed only once per account, so if someone has already redeemed a code previously, they can’t redeem it again on the same account. (Note: This pantheon starter packs is different from the main starter pack in the Steam release that grants the Ra skin.)”

The Stream Team: A look at life after the big ArcheAge server merges + giveaway

It finally happened: Massively OP’s MJ was uprooted from her ArcheAge server of over three years and tossed onto a new world with a number of other servers’ refugees. She pointedly ignored the big land rush; losing her homes was quite a blow. In fact, losing her homes is the one thing that may keep her from regular play from here on out. Has this move improved things? How populated do things look now? Tune in live at 8:00 p.m. for a look at the post-Evolution landscape (and a chance to win a Trion code for loot in all the games, including Midnight Kitsu in ArcheAge).

What: ArcheAge
Who: MJ Guthrie
When: 8:00 p.m. EDT on Monday, September 11th, 2017

PAX West 2017: Hands-on with Amazing Eternals (and more beta keys!)

If I had to pick a PAX West booth to give an award to for sheer fun factor, it would go to Digital Extremes’ new board/card/computer game combo The Amazing Eternals. (I’m not alone: The booth also got an award from a magazine!) The retro bowling alley vibe — complete with bowling shirts, orange shag carpet, and wood paneling — combined with the awesome old TV console frames on the monitors just screamed funky and fun.

Did that same vibe translate into the game? Yup. It was prevalent when I got to dive in and try a couple of matches. Admittedly, the first one was less fun, but that’s because I jumping in totally blind; the enjoyment spiked up quite a bit more after talking with Lead Game Designer Allen Goode and actually learning about the game. And now you, too, will have that same info so you can have a blast in your matches — or at least know better what’s going on!

PAX West 2017: Total War Arena’s hounds of war and World of Tanks’ war stories

When you think about Wargaming, you don’t really think about characters or troops — you think about war machines. But Total War: Arena’s inclusion into the studio’s publishing portfolio is not nearly as out of place as it may first seem. Created by Creative Assembly, Total War: Arena is a lobby-based war game, just like the World of trilogy. The big differences are the time period and the use of troops instead of vehicles. And the newest troops to enter the game are the war hounds.

At PAX West, I got to sit down with Senior Producer John King to discuss the new commander Boudica while watching her unleash her war hounds on the battlefield, plus I got to check out World of Tanks’ war stories in person!

Elder Scrolls Online and WildStar throw contests for crowns and cash

WildStar and Elder Scrolls Online walked into a bar, where they drank in companionable silence until one said, “You know what, pard’ner? We should fling out some contests to promote our sizzling updates!” Then more drinking, some karaoke, ESO called a taxi, morning headaches, and the contests happened.

WildStar wants to get some promotion behind its upcoming Homecoming update, which is why it’s challenging player teams to collaborate on a striking a neighborhood community. The winning team will split a $2,500 cash prize (insert WildStar budget joke here), while seven honorable mentions will benefit from their teammates being able to nab 10 items of their choice from the housing section of the cash shop.

As for Elder Scrolls Online, the team is selecting five random players who enter its Horns of the Reach giveaway to receive a gift pack containing 11,000 crowns and a mount of his or her choice. Not too shabby for a little effort!

Ultima Online is giving away six ‘grandfathered’ castles for its 20th anniversary

While Ultima Online these days allows players to own only a single house on a production shard per account, that rule will be broken for six lucky winners of a new giveaway. For the game’s 20th anniversary this year, Broadsword is awarding six “grandfathered” castles — likely worth hundreds of dollars each — as additional premium homes to a half-dozen fortunate recipients on the shard of their choice.

So how can you get one? “Three of these castles will be raffled off live and in person at the 20th Anniversary party in September, and for those of you who cannot attend, three will be raffled off via a raffle stone on Test Center 1 that has been placed today at the New Haven Bank!”

Meanwhile, the game’s newest update, Publish 98, has begun its rollout with a worldwide release happening on August 15th. The update contains a 20th anniversary arc, special rewards, pet adjustments, and the return of the Halloween event. Seriously, what’s with MMOs bringing Halloween into August this year?
