Marvel Realm of Champions reveals another of its houses, Apocalypse's Pyramid X

Kabam's Marvel Realm of Champions has revealed another of its in-game houses, Pyramid X. It's located in the kingdom of Egyptia, which was founded by the dreaded Apocalypse. Under Apocalypse's rule, Egyptia was transformed into one of the most advanced nations on earth. It wasn't all sunshine and rainbows, however, as it turns out that Apocalypse wasn't and still isn't exactly the nicest chap, forcing compulsory eugenics and other horrors on his people. The capital of Egyptia is Mutopia, and its crowing achievement is the gold-capped Pyramid X. Some of the other houses you'll be able to pledge your allegiance to include the Kingdom of Wakanda, the Patriot Garrison, the Temple of Vishanti…

NetEase launches Bloomblade, its hit MMO, globally

NetEase has today launched Bloomblade, its hit MMO, globally, but there's a catch: the only version available right now is entirely in Simplified Chinese. It's set during the time of the Tang dynasty and sees you embarking on a grand adventure full of romance, action, and chivalry.

There's an extensive character customisation system here, as well as an overarching narrative that can be shaped based on who you pursue and which of the five sects you join: Diehua, Shaolin, Shushan, Xuanbing, or Yingyue.

Last week was one of Apple Arcade's best yet, with not one but two new releases and several major updates arriving for other games on the service. We already knew that A Fold Apart, Lightning Rod Games' heartfelt puzzler, would land on Friday, but the launch of Beyond Blue was a total surprise. Word-based puzzler Dear Reader was one of four games to receive major updates on Friday. It now has Dark Mode, allowing for easy reading at night, as well as a whopping 12 new books to work your way through. These include A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain, Walden by Henry David Thoreau, and Aesop's Fables. Themed shelves have also been added that will change during special h…

Marvel Super War, NetEase's popular mobile MOBA, adds the Quantum Realm Suits from Avengers: Endgame

Marvel Super War, NetEase's hit mobile MOBA, has just kicked off its second season in style with a bunch of fresh content. For fans of Avengers: Endgame, the most exciting addition might well be the Quantum Realm Suits, which you may remember allowed our heroes to enter into, funnily enough, the Quantum Realm. Ant-Man, Rocket Racoon, and War Machine wouldn't be my personal picks to receive the suit first, but they all look good regardless. Every aspect of the suits "from the texture of the suit to the movement of the heroes when rocking the outfit" is said to be true to the source material. Since launch, we've seen tons of new skins arrive in-game, including some from Avengers: Infinity…

Wilderless is a stunning open-world experience with a focus on exploring and enjoying nature

Wilderless is an open-world game where the focus is placed on exploring and enjoying nature. It isn't developer Protopop's first go at this sort of experience, with their earlier Nimian Legends games laying the foundations for what is achieved here. Its depiction of nature – of being in the great outdoors – appears to be both serene and utterly epic in scale, though know that it's not aiming to offer the same loot-hunting, monster-killing thrills now so entwined with the genre. Instead, you'll spend your time soaking in the scenery, enjoying nature, and occasionally transforming into a hawk to soar through the skies and admire the wilds from above. In human form, you'll also…

Warhammer 40,000: Lost Crusade is an all-new strategy MMO for mobile

It can at times feel like a new Warhammer mobile game is announced every few months. The latest to come along, Warhammer 40,000: Lost Crusade, is an MMO strategy title that puts you in command of vast space fleets and legendary heroes. Info is a little light at the moment, but here's what we know so far. Combat plays out in real-time on fully 3D battlefields, and you can expect a sizable variety of Warhammer 40,000 heroes to collect as you go. Shao Fang, CEO of Orca Games, says that the battles themselves are designed to allow for "a huge amount of tactical strategy". We also know that it's a collaboration between Orca Games, China Central Television iCheng, and Games Workshop itself. At…

Grindstone gets a major update that adds more levels, a new enemy, and another boss

Grindstone, one of the most popular games on Apple Arcade, has just received a major update that adds 15 new levels to work your way through, a challenging boss to take down, and more. If you missed this one at launch, it's a smart, tight puzzler that tasks you with cleaving your way through hordes of monsters in the most efficient, stylish way possible. Along the way, you'll acquire fresh loot, craft powerful new gear, and occasionally fight the odd boss. The vanilla version was already fairly content-packed, but this latest update takes it to the next level. There's a new enemy that gobbles up smaller foes and then morphs into their colour. If you've played the game, you'll know how tric…

Bomb Chicken, Nitrome's hard-as-nails platformer, launches today for iOS and Android

Bomb Chicken is an all-new madcap platformer from developer Nitrome. It sees you playing as a chicken who, naturally, lays bombs instead of eggs. How did this happen? Well, a freak accident, of course. With an endless supply of bombs at its disposal, the chicken heads out to investigate the dodgy fast-food giant known as BFC and the troubling secret behind its highly addictive hot sauce. As you might expect, the bombs have tons of different uses. You can, for example, stack them to reach high-up areas of the level or kick them to take out any enemies that happen by. You're also going to be able to bounce your balls, allowing them to pass around corners or into locked-down areas. Based o…

KartRider Rush+ is coming to take Mario Kart Tour's mobile karting crown

Nexon's upcoming KartRider Rush+ is promised to be the most expansive kart racing game on mobile, aiming to deliver a vast array of modes, tracks, and racers that should hopefully please the genre's many fans. The KartRider series has a long and storied history, having spawned many games across almost as many genres. This latest title seems like a fairly straightforward, though greatly enhanced, version of the series' earlier karting experience, but it obviously has some fairly stiff competition in the form of one Mario Kart Tour. Its characters, including Dao and Bazzi, might be well-known to fans of the series – or those with an astonishingly good memory – but they're hardly…

Marvel Contest of Champions introduces the dreaded Terrax the Tamer

The latest character to arrive in Kabam's Marvel Contest of Champions is Terrax the Tamer. I wasn't particularly knowledgeable on this guy prior to now, but I gather he's one of Galactus' deadliest cronies. Terrax was once a ruthless dictator who ruled over the city of Lanlak. He did such a great job of it that Galactus himself eventually took an interest and helped turn him into the master of rock and earth he is today. As you might expect, he uses a powerful rock field to shred his unlucky opponents to bits. When he's not doing that, you'll often find Terrax channelling his cosmic powers to increase his power rate and temporarily gain indestructibility. The arrival of Terrax follows o…

Dire Wolf's digital adaptation of Sagrada launches for iOS and Android on March 31st

Developer Dire Wolf's latest is a colourful adaptation of Floodgate Games' Sagrada. This one sees you attempting to craft your very own stained-glass masterpiece while dealing with the challenging demands of your patrons. The idea is that you'll take turns selecting from various colourful dice before placing them in your window. The challenge stems from having to select your dice carefully while taking into consideration restrictions on both colour and the number on your die. Once all is said and done, the player with the most beautiful window will be declared the victor. Thankfully, you'll have a number of tools to help alter the dice available to you. This opens up additional avenues o…

Marvel Future Fight has now received a new update inspired by the X-Men comic book storylines "House of X" and "Powers of X". Both tales see Charles Xavier and a band of mutants creating a new world order in isolation on the island of Krakoa. What does this mean for the game? Well, some new characters, gameplay improvements, and themed uniforms have now been added for you to collect, further building upon the already content-packed Future Fight experience. The most exciting part of this latest update is undoubtedly the arrival of House of X-themed characters, including Professor X, Mystique, and Mister Sinister.
