On April 30th we’re going to be receiving the final update to the Flame and Frost world event, which is being called Flame and Frost: Retribution. Where will we strike our retribution? In a new dungeon! This new Living Story dungeon is called Molten Weapon Facilities and will feature our NPC comrades Rox and Braham as well as an end boss fight that seems mighty intriguing from the looks of the screenshots. We’re also going to finally be able to create our own custom PvP Arena matches and take a peek at matches in progress using the new Spectator mode that will be debuting in beta form with the update.

In addition, we’ll be getting new World vs. World abilities, new guild missions, and guild siege weapons and back banners that can be used during WvW. For more information, check out ArenaNet’s updated Flame and Frost: Retribution information page. There are also a few screenshots of the new dungeon on there, so make sure to check those out as well!

Since the 2-part pilot (episodes 1 & 2) had to introduce new characters, new settings, new alien races, and new terminology, we had to pay attention to a lot of detail. Now that we kind of know who and what we are dealing with in the show, things can be a little more streamlined for this recap.

We are reminded that during the big battle during the last episode, one of the Castithans (albino-looking alien race) was shown running away like a coward during the gunfight. It was the same one that approached Datak in the street to pay his debt that was a little bit late, so Datak already doesn’t like this guy. His name is Elah Bandik and his day was about to get a lot worse.

Remember a couple weeks ago when Elrar showed off this little yellow guy during Trion’s weekly live stream? Raptr’s making his debut leap onto our RIFT shards today with the addition of a handful of new Raptr rewards.

What is Raptr, you ask? Raptr is this nifty gaming site and software that’s free and can be used to connect with other gamers, share screenshots, news, etc., and track your gaming time. Raptr often pairs up with game companies like Trion to give away in-game goodies and promotions as a reward for being a member.

For the Raptr pet, you’ll need to have an Elite Raptr rating in RIFT or higher. The good news is that if you’re new to Raptr, you have plenty of time to obtain that rating since this promotion will run from April 23rd to June 11th. Other than the cute yellow guy, Trion and Raptr are offering a new pair of Wardrobe-specific Stone Spaulders and this Storm Legion Arbiter Helm that was also offered at the beginning of the expansion.

Oh, yeah, and there’s also a promotion for a free copy of RIFT and Storm Legion if you’re a little late on picking up the game and/or expansion. For more information, check out Raptr’s information page on this offer as well as Trion’s announcement regarding the promotion. Raptr herd, assemble!

ZAM had an interesting interview posted today that discussed the intricacies of the game engine. The interviewer sat down with Steve Moret, lead software engineer, to get a sneak peak at how things worked at Carbine Studios.

What’s the starting point for something as large as an MMO? Do you begin with something off-the-shelf and build out from there, or do you literally start from scratch?

Step one for us, was to decide what we could use off the shelf, and to see where it would take us. Back in 2005 we knew we had a few years of R&D time, so we evaluated a few off-the-shelf engines and, while these engines would let us show off some fancy graphics in year one, they didn’t look like they’d scale to our needs 5+ years later. We decided to spend a majority of our work home brewing the correct solution for each problem.

Make sure you read the rest of the interview because it’s incredibly interesting on learning how Wildstar started many years ago.

As far as I understand it, every visual display for armor we have is hand edited to each race/gender combination. There are silly looking things and there are rad looking things. There is a wide spectrum of choices, as many for male as female. I do not know what the art plans for costumes are.

In the on going thread on WTC regarding female character gear modeling, we learn from Gortok this morning that all armor is tailored to specific race/gender combinations. This is only interesting to contrast against other games that use a unity-body design where gear scales to the character model. What this means is that instead of designing armor for just female or male, the developers have to craft gear for every option. This could mean that designing and creating new content might take longer. Another aspect of this means that a lot of art assets could be reused with different colors.

critter rampage

Just in case you haven’t had your daily dose of Guild Wars 2-flavored 8-bit awesomeness, ArenaNet released a little side project one team member had going– Rytlock’s Critter Rampage! Yes, that’s right, the video game the kid in the Super Adventure Box cheesy TV ad is playing can now be played by all of us. It’s a fun browser-based platformer with multiple difficulty levels starring our favorite butt-kicking charr Rytlock. He apparently doesn’t like cute bunnies much. The game also features four different endings. Watch out for Rytlock difficulty!

To check out the browser game for yourself, check it out here. Also be sure to check out the release announcement.
