As you have probably read in the thread about the third alpha wave, a few people declined the invitation to the pre-alpha. In order to make it easier for us to select participants in the future, I would like to make a list of all members who do NOT want to join the pre-alpha. So if you do not want to join, please respond or PM me even if you are not in the top 100 of the Foundation as we also select some participants among the drawing winners. (Speaking of the drawings, we're still selecting winners every week and they will be posted eventually.

Entropia Universe is officially old enough to get its learners permit, and that can only mean one thing: New aim controls. The free update launching this week allows players to lock onto targets and cycle through new ones, allowing for much better control and for easier mass destruction. In addition, the team at MindArk has announced the death of right clicking. No more working through menus to enter vehicles or pick up items as players can now interact with the environment with just one button. “Much has changed in the last 16 years, but Entropia Universe continues to grow and evolve, and the MindArk team remains committed to keeping the gameplay experience familiar yet fresh,” said Dennis Antonsson, project lead, MindArk. “Long-time players will notice an immediate difference as they switch camera views, toggle their aim and more efficiently interact with the world of Entropia Universe.” More can be found at the official website.

Its success was quickly followed by Fortnite which grew so fast that it transcended the video gaming industry and became a cultural phenomena, not unlike Pokemon in the early 1990s. With so much hype around Fortnite and PUBG, it was easy to assume the 2-year old genre had already peaked. A few smaller titles tried to enter the fray, games like Realm Royale launched with strong numbers but quickly fizzled. So it was a complete surprise to most industry watchers, including us, when EA-owned studio Respawn Entertainment dropped the free to play Battle Royale Apex Legends on February 4, 2019. Within 7 days, the game boasted 2 million concurrent players and 25 million total registered players. While that still falls short PUBG's concurrent peak (3.2m) and Fortnite's (8.5m), it does set a record on how quickly a Battle Royale has grown. If Apex Legends continues its … [Read more...] about The Weekly Raid: Are You Playing Apex Legends?
