Posted by | News, Switch | No Comments

Underbite Games has announced that superhero-themed turn-based tactical strategy game Sentinels of Freedom is now available on the Nintendo eShop for Switch, for $24.99.

Players can create their own custom superhero, including backstory, personality, powers, and costume across five different archetypes, including brawler and summoner. You’ll form a team with other heroes in turn-based tactical combat.

The lengthy single player campaign is based on the Sentinel Comics, as a bank heist evolves into a deeper plot. Missions are broken up into multiple encounters with different objectives and enemies, including choosing where to go next.

“Sentinels of Freedom is the perfect blend of superhero comics and tactics games,” said Cory Heald, founder of Underbite Games. “It’s got a gripping story and colorful characters, but it also lets you control the carnage as these superpowered heroes and villains face off in increasingly epic fisticuffs!”

Sentinels of Freedom is also available on PC (Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It’s rated E10+ with Fantasy Violence.

Rocket League Going Free to Play, Moving from Steam to Epic Games Store

Posted by | News, PC | No Comments

Psyonix has announced that popular multiplayer sports-racing game Rocket League will be going free-to-play later this summer, along with a major update and the debut release on the Epic Games Store on PC.

The bad (and buried) news is that Rocket League will no longer be available on Steam. According to the official FAQ, however, if you already own Rocket League on Steam, you can still play it and enjoy automatic updates. As long as you link your platform to your Epic Games Account, inventories should transfer.

Rocket League will feature cross-platform play between PC (Steam, Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One.

If you purchase Rocket League before the free-to-play update, you’ll be given Legacy Status. Legacy Status confers several goodies including a Golden Cosmos Boost, Huntress Player Banner, and all past Rocket League-branded DLC packs.

Veterans player who had played Rocket League before July 21 will also receive the Faded Cosmos Boost when the game goes free-to-play.

The free-to-play update will revamp Rocket League’s challenge system to add weekly and seasonal challenges, to align with other popular free-to-play game such as Fortnite.

No official date was given for the update. Expect more information in the coming weeks. Rocket League is rated E for Everyone.
