When Battleborn released earlier this year we found a game that was a pleasant mix of various genres. Whilst having a steep learning curve it was still fun to play with a different and interesting style. Unfortunately, it soon fell out of favour with many gamers. This was no doubt due to it being released so close to the release of FPS juggernaut Overwatch. The games are very different but the popularity of Overwatch definitely hurt a lot of Battleborn’s player base. That being said, the game still has a loyal fan base with many players feeling that by moving the game to free to … Read More »

Battleborn didn’t get off to a great start, did it? Despite solid reviews (you can read ours right here), its thunder was stolen by the Overwatch beta that dropped just a couple of days after the game’s release, and despite being a different genre and different playstyle, it’s never managed to shake off comparisons to Blizzard’s shooter. But that doesn’t mean it’s game over for 2K’s colourful and characterful MOBA. During an earnings call, the publisher’s CEO, Strauss Zelnick, said: While the game launched to solid reviews, its performance in the market has been below our expectations. We think there … Read More »

Evolve developer, Turtle Rock Studios, has announced that the title would become free to play on Steam.  A lot of hype was up around the action shooter because of its unique 1 vs. 4, monster vs. human concept.  What made Turtle Rock Studios want to drastically alter their marketing concept? According to Steam reports, the average player base was less than 200 players per day.  The game’s player base just seemed to disappear.  Upon becoming a free to play title on Steam, the player base shot up over 15,000%!  Steam users were quick to reap the benefit of a free AAA title … Read More »
