Introducing ‘Spotlight’, The Next Step for OnlySP’s Interviews



With 2015 wrapping up and 2016 on the horizon, we here at OnlySP have been looking ahead to find ways to better capitalize on our niche of providing you, our readers, with the most comprehensive and interesting news about single player experiences.

We understand that there are a lot of places to go for news nowadays and it’s easier than ever for savvy gamers to find their own news. So we’re making it our goal to do what we can to give you content that you can only find here. As such, aside from our usual news, reviews, and editorials, we have several exciting feature articles planned for the upcoming year. I can’t give you details about everything we have coming down the pipe, but we have one series of articles planned and ready to go that I’d like to get you hyped for: Spotlight.

This series will explore games in a way that you won’t find on any other website. We’re starting off this feature with one of our most anticipated games of 2016. Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

These features will be rich with content that we think you’ll find quite interesting. All of us here on the site are extremely excited about this first entry, and hopefully in the future if we become big enough, we can travel to these locations and do the interviews first hand.

In January, we’ll be kicking off our Spotlight series by chatting with the minds behind Kingdom Come: Deliverance about things like their combat system, the challenges and pitfalls of working with historical accuracy, and the differences between making a more realistic medieval game and a fantasy game. We’ll be talking to them about the game’s large-scale battles, the historical weapons, the historical influences that led to the creation of the game, and getting more details about what sort of research the team did. We hope you’re as excited for this title as we are because we’re going to be finding out everything there is to know about it, without spoiling the actual game itself.

To do this feature justice, James Billcliffe has spent the last month researching the history of the Bohemian Kingdom, which is where Kingdom Come takes place.

And this is only the first article of Spotlight. We have lots more in the pipe – both in this feature series and others – so be sure to follow OnlySP at our website here and on Facebook and Twitter (@Official_OnlySP) for this and much, much more.

Thank you for making 2015 a great year, single players. We hope to make 2016 even better. Expect Nick’s End of the Year Address in the next few days.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware



FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
