Guild Wars 2 Expansion Pack Coming

Guild Wars 2 was one of the major contributors to NCsoft’s bottom line when during the first quarter of 2013, representing over 20 percent of the company’s revenue. Still, sales have tapered off since launch so the company announced that it is planning an expansion as soon as it can be managed.

“In terms of box sales and microtransactions are still very strong, and of course we are preparing an expansion pack but in terms of when we will actually launch it, it’s something we are still monitoring . . .” said NCsoft’s managing director Nah Seong Chan. “We are looking to the performance of the game and then we will decide what will be the best time to do the launch.”

Shadow Of The Eternals Comes To Kickstarter

Precursor Games has announced that it has launched a Kickstarter campaign for its title Shadow of the Eternals. This will run in tandem with its original crowdfunding campaign, which the company will run via its own website.

The company is asking for $1.35 million on Kickstarter, an amount that seems to subtract the $150,000 raised in the original crowdfunding offering from $1.5 million, the total asked for the game. Precursor will retain all the money it receives from the crowdfunding campaign on its website, but will only get the money from Kickstarter if it meets or exceeds its goal.

PS4 Slogan ‘Greatness Awaits’: Report

A report leaked of the marketing focus for the PS4 with the keyword “Greatness Awaits.” The source is said to be the same that revealed the “Step Your Game Up” PSP campaign; the description from the original article is included in full:

The commercial starts off by showing an empty road in a small town. A lone guy walks down the road towards the camera and says, “Who are you not to be great You, with the imagination of a brilliant child and the powers of an ancient god.”

“Who are you to be ordinary? You, who could get away with murder, or raise the dead . . .” As the guy says this the buildings start to look damaged.

“Who are you to be anonymous You, whose name should be spoken in reverent tones or in terrified whispers.” We hear a distant screech — and in the far background some windows blow out from the sound. Suddenly, two people sprint the opposite way covered in yellow paint.

“Who are you to be afraid You, who can serve as judge and jury while hoarding infinite lives.” The nearby buildings appear increasingly damaged as he walks. We begin to notice a few people are starting to come out and follow behind him — three friends fall in behind while a kid on a BMX bike rolls in from an alley off the main street, his friend is standing on the back foot pegs carrying a hockey stick and wearing a homemade cape. He passes by some abandoned cars in the middle of the road. But more brave souls have joined our hero’s cause. They walk behind him — following him wherever it is he is headed.

“Who are you to be a slave to the past You who can travel time like the oceans and rewrite history with a single word.” Without wavering and with growing focus our hero continues to head straight towards camera, passing some rubble spattered in yellow paint. With the wind blowing against him and the sounds of chaos in front, he begins to raise his voice to be heard. In the background, we see a home-made lag painted with the icon from Destiny unfurl out a broken window.

“Who are you to deny greatness If you would deny it to yourself, you deny it to the entire world.”
