Even though we’ve just recovered from the end of ArcheAge‘s third closed beta event, the fourth beta event was announced yesterday. It’s right around the corner! It’ll begin at 10 AM PST on Friday, August 22 and run until 10 AM on Wednesday, August 27th. There can never be too much beta in a sandbox-y game like ArcheAge, right?

There will be no character wipes from the third beta event, so players will be able to continue their progress. As always, the limited closed invites from CBE 3 won’t be valid for CBE 4, but Trion posted a list of third party sites where keys for this test period can be found starting on the 20th. All Founders and Alpha testers, of course, still have access.

For more info, check out the official FAQ. Happy beta-ing!

In a live stream event today, Blizzard revealed the release date for World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor. The long-awaited expansion will launch on November 13, 2014, shortly after BlizzCon 2014.

Warlords of Draenor Cinematic
The event featured the premiere of the Warlords of Draenor cinematic, a beautifully-rendered look back at the savage events of 35 years ago, starring Garrosh, Guldan, and Grom, plus a scene-stealing Iron Star.

Warlords of Draenor in Action
Additionally, Blizzard presented Warlords of Draenor in Action. This video gives a tantalizing whirlwind tour of each of the new zones, dungeons, and raids, with a quick look at garrisons, the new PvP playground called Ashran, and some of the new character models.

Lords of War
Also shown was the first episode of Lords of War, a new animated miniseries by Blizzard that delves into the lore of some of Draenor’s Warlords. Part One follows Kargath Bladefist’s life from slave to gladiator to Warlord of the Shattered Hand.

After a couple weeks of fun email teasers, BioWare finally announced yesterday what the heck we’ve all been chosen for– a brand new online action RPG in development called Shadow Realms. Shadow Realms will be a 4v1 story-driven ARPG with dynamic co-op elements in a world that’s going to evolve as it takes shape.

As hinted in the video clips we’ve seen as well as in the full live action trailer below, Shadow Realms will take place in a modern day setting where players are pulled into a dark realm where magic and powerful weaponry rule the day (or night, since it’s dark and all?) against demonic denizens and supernatural creatures. Curious where the 4v1 part comes in? Players will team up and go against Shadowlord, a player-controlled super-enemy.

Although the sequel to 2013′s Tomb Raider was announced at E3 this year, a potentially even bigger announcement was made at Gamescom‘s Microsoft press briefing at Gamescom. Crystal Dynamics announced that it was forging a closer working relationship with Microsoft and, as a result, Rise of the Tomb Raider is going to be an exclusive title for the Xbox console.

We found out new information today in a recent interview with Eurogamer. Rise of the Tomb Raider will be available for both Xbox One and the 360. Also– and here’s the big news– it will only be Xbox-exclusive for a “limited duration”. Phil Spencer unfortunately didn’t say how long that duration would be for.

Unsurprisingly, this announcement has been met with protests by fans previous to the latest announcement. Crystal Dynamics responded with a Tumblr post in which they explain the motivation behind this decision. The studio explains that they have entered this partnership in an attempt to make Rise of the Tomb Raider a bigger and better gaming experience. They also assure fans that Lara Croft will make appearances on their consoles of choice in December’s Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and the PS4′s Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition.

So we’ve smashed some spiders, put down plagues, and mortared the military. Now it’s time to kill the constructs in the final Naxxramas quarter before we have the chance to face Kel’Thuzad himself. This is also a week we get some nice deathrattlers to help us make a nice theme deck after having won The Baron. As usual, Hearthhead has some decks up already, but for those of you who want a little bit more, I offer my advice and experience after the cut.

Thanks to a player-created petition started after Robin Williams’ unfortunate passing yesterday, Blizzard has agreed to create a Robin Williams NPC in World of Warcraft. The petition was simple, and just requested the developers to create an NPC as a way to fondly remember the actor and comedian. Almost 11,000 supporters signed the petition. Today, this update was posted by the creator of the petition:

“Aug 12, 2014 — An amazing development has just happened, Celestalon has seen the petition and has been quoted as saying “We’re taking care of it.” Does this mean that in less than one day our goal has been met? Here’s hoping! When more information is presented you can be sure it will be shared here. Great job guys.”

And sometimes it’s the small things that make our day a little more bright.

Square Enix is adding a new IP to their gaming family– a new, strange IP. It’s called Life is Strange, and in a recently-released blog entry, Square describes the game as something “wholly different to anything we have ever attempted before, both in gameplay and narrative”.

Life is Strange is a modern-day story revolving around one character’s ability to rewind time and the repercussions of such power. It will be a choice-based game released in regular episodic content that will allow players to experience a unique gaming experience based on decisions made in previous episodes. Episodes will be digitally released.

We’ll see Life is Strange released on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Square Enix hasn’t announced a release date yet, but the screenshots released so far look fairly impressive.

BioWare has announced, with very little fanfare, that director and executive producer Casey Hudson has left BioWare. While the announcement was made via a blog entry on Thursday morning, the news is just beginning to make news across the internet.

Hudson is best known as the director of the controversial third chapter of the Mass Effect series, and played a prominent role in the development of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Opinion on the effects of Hudson’s departure are mixed, mostly due to the predominantly negative opinion on the quality of BioWare’s games since the company was bought out by EA.

Although Hudson states that he has struggles with the decision to leave the company, he writes:
“After what already feels like a lifetime of extraordinary experiences, I have decided to hit the reset button and move on from BioWare. I’ll take a much needed break, get perspective on what I really want to do with the next phase of my life, and eventually, take on a new set of challenges.”

Hudson’s departure comes as BioWare prepares the release Dragon Age: Inquisition and develops the next Mass Effect game.
