The developers behind the acclaimed S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Metro: Last Light will be setting up a Kickstarter campaign to get funding for their next project which is called Areal.

Here’s a description regarding what to expect for Areal.

Areal is a new video game that’s being developed by the people behind S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Metro: Last Light. It features a massive and intricately detailed open world environment that is extremely varied and colorful, even though it’s set in a post-apocalyptic setting. Areal depicts a future where civilization has fallen apart due to an unearthly material called Metamorphite, which eventually spreads, corrupts and infects the whole world. The source of Metamorphite comes from a meteor that impacted the earth long ago, and it is the site of constant conflict and bloodshed.

The Pinball Arcade Developer Apologizes For Its Recent Wii U Comments

The Pinball Arcade developer FarSight Studios has apologized for the comments it made yesterday on Wii U. Via Facebook, the studio said it was “misinformed” when it claimed Nintendo’s latest console was significantly less powerful than the aging PlayStation 3. The studio added that its initial comments were based on a talk it had with the developer handling the Wii U version of the pinball game.

“Those comments were made based on a conversation I had with the developer who’s been working on the WII-U version, he was unable to get the console to perform anywhere near what the xbox one and ps4 were capable of,” the developer said. “I was misinformed in that I said the ps3 was far more powerful… after speaking to him again, I was told that while the system still does not compare to XB1 or PS4, I was incorrect in regards to the ps3 comparison, and for that I apologize.”

Second Assassin’s Creed Game Is Apparently Called Assassin’s Creed Comet And Coming To Xbox 360 And PS3

French publication Gamesblog is reporting that there’s a second Assassin’s Creed game coming this year and it’s for “last-gen” consoles, which means Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The publication and Kotaku hasn’t heard whether this game will be coming to the Wii U. Ubisoft have already announced a new Assassin’s Creed game called Assassin’s Creed Unity which is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

“Comet will take place in and around 1758; that it will star a sailor named Shay who betrays the captain of his ship; and that it’s set on the Atlantic Ocean.Comet, GameBlog says, will continue the nautical theme established in last year’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.”

“This fall’s last-gen Assassin’s Creed will indeed be set in North America and star a protagonist named Shay, who is a member of the Templars, the assassin-hating order that has traditionally served as primary antagonist in the Assassin’s Creed games.”

“We also hear that Comet will let you go to New York and do a great deal of sailing along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. One source describes the game as a cross between Assassin’s Creed III and the Freedom Cry DLC for Assassin’s Creed IV. Sources also say that Haytham Kenway and Adewalé will make appearances, among other returning AC characters.”

Airtight Games chief creative officer Matt Brunner recently explained to GameSpot why the game is skipping Nintendo’s platform. According to Brunner, the title wouldn’t be a good fit for Wii U. Murdered: Soul Suspect will be available in June for PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

“In all honesty, all the Wii U games I’ve ever played, the only good ones are the ones that are made specifically for [the Wii U],” Brunner said. “And this just doesn’t fit.”
