H1Z1 (PS4)

Action canceled

An MMO shooter with survival elements, set in a world after a zombie outbreak, developed by the Daybreak Game Company studio. The title is one of the two alternative versions of the survival sandbox game formerly known as H1Z1 that was divided into two independent productions during the early access stage. Unlike H1Z1: Just Survive, that remained faithful to the developers' original concept, H1Z1: King of the Kill focuses on dynamic action and players competing in one of several PvP modes, spearheaded by the Battle Royale mode, well-known from the original game. The game features also some elements of survival: before the struggle begins the players get a little time to gather resources and create equipment that they will use to fight their opponents. However, in contrast to the original game these elements were marginalized.

TERA (PS4)

RPG 2018

TERA is a fantasy MMORPG developed by Bluehole. During our adventures we play as members of the Valkyon Federation, an alliance of races inhabiting the game’s world. Our task is to protect it from various internal and external threats. The players have eight classes and six races to choose from. Among them we will find not only humans and elves, but also completely new races, created specially for the game. TERA is a third-person game set in a big, open world. Its economic and political structures are shaped by the players themselves. What makes TERA shine among other MMORPGs is the game's combat system. Effects of our attacks are based on our relative position against the enemy, which makes TERA more like an arcade game in terms of combat. That is why it is advisable to use a gamepad when playing.

Although one can experience what this world has to offer solo, the adventure gets deeper when the player is accompanied by others. Apart from an additional place to explore and a new storyline, the add-on introduces a new character class, that is, the Warden. This class makes a great use of the magic of nature, but is also supported in combat by a tamed bear. A new PvP mode constitutes another novelty - the Battlegrounds are focused on three teams of four players fighting one another.

Battle Islands: Commanders (PS4)
Battle Islands: Commanders (PS4)

Strategy 14 February 2017

A simplistic RTS game focusing on quick multiplayer duels and employing free-to-play business model. Battle Islands: Commanders was created by the experienced DR Studios, and the game extends the formula of 2013's Battle Islands. The game simplifies the traditional RTS mechanics, but supplementing them with elements borrowed from card games and tower defense titles. Each duel is fought using the cards one has in their deck, which can be modified to one's liking. New cards can be found in chests received for victories. Cards of the same kind can be combined together to improve the firepower and durability of one's tanks and other units. Contrary to the classic RTS games, the player cannot control particular units manually - the player only chooses when and where to place a unit and the rest is done automatically, as the subordinates simply join the battle. Placing various units on the battlefield should be done with caution however, as sending a tank to a zone where the enemy has already placed a soldier with a rocket launcher will have catastrophic consequences.

Battle Ages (PS4)
Battle Ages (PS4)

Strategy 20 April 2016

A real-time strategy game distributed by using the free-to-play model. The game was developed by DR Studios and it allows the player to lead a civilization through various stages of evolution, since the Stone Age, through antiquity, medieval and renaissance, to the final years of the 19th century. At first the player assumes control of a simple settlement which then expands its size and adds new buildings. Industrial and military buildings provide access to various upgrades, new technologies and military units. The type and availability of units depends on the current era of the nation controlled by the player. The battles with enemy armies are played in an unusual way – the player lacks direct control of his troops and the outcome mostly depends on the number of units on each side of the conflict. Battle Ages offers both single player and multiplayer modes. The story missions are accompanied by a competitive PvP mode that allows the player to attack other civilizations. The rather nice graphics also help in creating a positive image of the game; however, the limitations caused by the F2P distribution model somewhat disturb that image. Various processes require much time to accomplish and they can be accelerated by using microtransactions.
