Wild Buster is back as Champions of Titan under a new publisher

Remember Wild Buster? Back in February, Valve booted its publisher, Insel Games, off Steam, accusing it of review manipulation after a dev leaked a damning letter from the company boss seemingly coercing employees to buy and review the game on the platform. At the time, Insel Games denied wrongdoing, but the loss of Steam clearly hurt; it resurfaced this past spring to announce that it had struggled without Steam and would instead be transferring publishing rights to IDC Games, which would relaunch the title as Champions of Titan.

That brings us to today, when IDC has announced that Champions of Titan is rolling into open beta ahead of a “full commercial release” later this year.

“Open Beta is available from today and players can start exploring the new world, conquer fierce monsters, challenge the rival faction in PvP and enjoy grouping with their friends. Champions of Titan MMORPG combines a fluid and fast combat with a world full of adventures, challenges and an original graphic design set in Sci-Fi environment. Developed by Korean studio Nuriworks and published by IDC/Games, Champions of Titans offers full PvE and PvP features: solo content, group content, raid content, 3v3, 5v5 and 10v10 battlegrounds, Battle Royale PvP map and free for all PvP.”

It looks as if it’ll be on Steam again, but as I type this, I’m getting the “unavailable in your region” error (in the US). The press release instructs would-be players to register on the official site at the moment.

Champions of Titan’s sister game, Guardians of Ember, suffered the same boot from Steam but appears to have done much better in the meantime; last week, we learned it will be rehomed under Gameforge for continued publishing in the west.

Hmmm. Even today, just now. I’m searching for the game in steam and nothing shows up. I’ll wait until it’s ready on Steam I guess.

You can download the game off their site and login using your Steam creds, if that helps at all.

Played it for a bit. Feels like a mobile game. It’s OK.

Hmmm. I wonder if I’ll have to uninstall and re-install when it comes available for download on Steam? I may just wait then.

It’s there. It didn’t come up when I searched with the full name, but game up with Titan. Just search for that and scroll down until you see it.
