Witcher 1 Prologue Remastered on TW3 engine
Blood Remaster has been officially announced, will support both DirectX and Vulkan
Atari has announced that Nightdive Studios will revamp the classic Atari-owned adventure-horror PC title Blood. Originally developed by Monolith Productions and released in 1997,
Blood remains a fan-favorite and will receive enhancements to improve the action-packed, horrifying game experience.
The team working on the game at Nightdive Studios includes lead engine developer Samuel “Kaiser” Villarreal, whose previous work includes The Original Strife, Turok, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil and, most recently, Forsaken Remastered.
Additionally, developers Edward Richardson, James Haley, and producer Daniel Grayshon will be working on the project.
Regarding the upgrading effort, Daniel said:
“Blood stood up extremely well over time and we are taking care to preserve all the qualities that made the game so special. It really only needs minor updates to provide a better user experience for contemporary audiences. By using some of the functions of Nightdive’s KEX engine, we’ll be able to provide compatibility with today’s video standards, with DirectX and Vulkan support.
Similarly, we’ll provide compatibility with the current audio standards. We’ll add support for modern networks, Steamworks, and GOG Galaxy to bring this original game to more players.
As part of this, we will preserve the accuracy of the game behavior. While these upgrades are relatively minor, we are confident that they will provide fans with a better, current generation gameplay experience.”
Todd Shallbetter, COO of Atari, added:
“We are thrilled to work with the fine team at Nightdive Studios to bring the cult classic Blood back to gamers. Blood is a grisly good time, and there’s no better team out there than Nightdive to ensure that the game will find new fans.”
Originally released in 1997, Blood is a First-Person Shooter that helped redefine the genre and first introduced many elements now accepted as commonplace.
In Blood, players jump into the boots of undead gunslinger Caleb as he seeks revenge against the dark Chernobog (DarkArchitect).
Caleb’s arsenal features a mix of standard and occult weaponry, which he uses to devastating and gore-filled, effect.
In the game, players visit a terrifying world populated by hordes of bloodthirsty fiends including cultists, gargoyles, zombies, hellhounds, and an unholy host of other terrors.

Journey to the Savage Planet
505 Games has announced an upbeat first-person adventure game that is set in a bright and colourful alien world filled with weird and wonderful creatures, called Journey to the Savage Planet.
As an employee of Kindred Aerospace, which proudly touts its rating as the “4th Best Interstellar Exploration Company”, players will be dropped onto an uncharted planet deep in a fictitious, far-away corner of the universe.
Launched with high hopes but little equipment and no real plan, players are tasked with exploring, cataloguing alien flora and fauna and determining if the planet is fit for human habitation.
Alex Hutchinson, creative director and co-founder of Typhoon Studios, said:
“The core tenets of Typhoon are strong flavors, lots of intertwined systems, a penchant for bad jokes and a deep and abiding love of collaborative play. Journey to the Savage Planet will encompass all of those things and more.”
Reid Schneider, executive producer and co-founder of Typhoon Studios, added:
“This is a passion project for our team, many of whom came from larger companies including Ubisoft, Eidos and WB Games to embark on this indie game adventure with us.
It was a dream come true to reveal our project at The Game Awards,” added Yassine Riahi, technical director and co-founder, Typhoon Studios. “We were thrilled to see the positive reaction from viewers and we’re eager to get Journey to the Savage Planet in your hands next year!”
Meow. There's a lot of hawt guys in Devil May Cry. The edgy theme and soundtrack is right down my alley and I actually might pick it up on sale.
However I'm still a bit worried about the situation with single player microtransactions and knowing Capcom, it probably will be a bug fest at launch.
I can't share screens but Anthem is Looking Great & Runs 70FPS solid w/Ultra settings
IMO it will be great game.
