Terraria Wii U Has Local And Online Multiplayer

We finally got reconfirmation today that Terraria is coming to the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, but what about the all-important multiplayer mode.

ZombiU Confirmed For PlayStation 4, Xbox One And PC Renamed Zombi

Today, Ubisoft announced the development of ZOMBI, an upgrade of the acclaimed survival-horror game, coming as a digital download for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC on August 18, 2015.

After being one of the Wii U flagship titles in 2012, ZOMBI returns to challenge gamers on multiple new platforms to find out how long they can survive in dilapidated, infected London. For the second time in history, a great plague has shrouded the city in a fog of death. Thousands have died, or worse, been infected by a sickness more gruesome than death. Once again, this fear-fueled first-person shooter invites all players to dive into the horror, chaos and tension found in the best of the genre. The nail-biting survival experience has been optimized for PlayStation4 system, Xbox One and Windows PC, using the power of the latest generation of hardware to bring gamers to a new level of horror.

Players will experience the original oppressive and intense elements that made ZombiU so innovative. The bug-out bag is a necessary component for survival for each player as it contains all the player’s tools, inventory, first aid kits, maps and more. With permadeath, players are faced with a death mechanic which puts them in the body of a different survivor each time they die. In order to retain the equipment they previously gathered in their bug-out bag, they are forced to track down their old, infected character. Should players risk it all to get their bag back or start scavenging anew?

Yooka-Laylee Got A Publisher Deal With Team17 For Retail Release

Update: They are looking to bring the game to retail which hopefully means it is coming.

Yooka-Laylee has already gotten off to a good start with an immensely successful Kickstarter campaign and now the team at Playtonic are looking to bring the 3D platformer to retail. The company announced today that Team17 will be publishing the game at retail and it will be released next year. Team 17, the team behind Worms, will help Playtonic out with localisation, certification, QA, marketing and other business matters.

“Team17 has significant experience in making the most of releasing a game,” explained Gavin Price, creative lead and studio head at Playtonic.

“Personally I feel it would be a great shame if after our great Kickstarter success, we delivered on our promise of a great game and then it underperformed sales-wise because we didn’t have the knowledge, or made a mistake in the way we released or marketed the game.”

“Thanks to our Kickstarter backers, we’re on a really positive trajectory and Team17 is acting like a booster for us on top of that by handling non-game dev tasks.”

“[This partnership] is probably more significant than either Team17 or Playtonic fully realise right now,” she says. “They are friends of ours and we want to help it make sense for everyone.
