Neverinth

The Norse mythology-inspired action extravaganza Neverinth will arrive in Steam Early Access on April 30.

In the game, players take the role of warrior women drawn from across history to battle against the monsters left behind in the wake of Ragnarok. The women have been summoned by Yggdrasill, the embodiment of the Tree of Life to avenge the fallen gods and ultimately ascend to become Valkyrie.

As the game progresses, players will learn about both the world and the histories of the women while battling through “the everchanging halls of the Neverinth.”

The development team, CreAct Games, predicts the project to remain in Early Access for at least a year, during which the roster will expand from two to five playable characters and more levels beyond the starting two will be added.

To celebrate the imminent release, publisher AnotherIndie released a new trailer (embedded below) focusing on story details, while also showing off some of the rapid action and imaginative beasts set to be appear in the game.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
