CD Projekt RED has announced that the PC version of their upcoming game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will have ”absolutely no DRM”. The news was released via an open letter from the studio’s CEO Michal Iwinski, where he explains why they’ve decided to go against using DRM.
“Following our recent announcement of the distribution deals of The Witcher 3 in North America and Europe, there have been some concerns regarding DRM and previous legal issues with The Witcher 2. We’ve seen a lot of comments in various places around the web and we would like to join in on the conversation,” it reads.
“I’d like to say it loud and clear: The PC version of The Witcher 3 will have absolutely no DRM from day 0. Zero. Zip. Nada. It doesn’t matter if you choose to buy it on GOG.com and support us directly or buy the game in box format, you’ll still get the 100% DRM-free experience. And this goes for the whole world.
“We’ve fiddled with DRM in the past (Oh boy! How young and naïve we were ;)) and that’s enough. Lesson learned.”
You can look forward to the Witcher 3 sometime in 2014 where it will launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Thanks to the inclusion of episodic content, Fable Legends will be able to evolve for years to come after its launch date according to the game’s director David Eckelberry, who told IGN Benelux that the multiplayer focus of the game would impede its narrative component.
“The storyline is absolutely there and very important,” he said. “Of course there’s a higher purpose with a broad storyline that combines the various quests. But we tell new stories all the time. That’s the beauty of episodic content.
“We don’t want Fable Legends to stop when you finish the game. You should think about seasons and episodes. Fable Legends might just be Season One and we can add new quests and stories in the future, in the form of DLC for example.”
Fable Legends is currently set to launch sometime in 2014 exclusively for the Xbox One by developer Lionhead.

The Lord of the Ring’s Online’s story has been one of its most praise attributes, and since the game went free to play a few years ago, the epic story has always been free to all of its players. However, Turbine has recently confirmed that for those who want to continue on with the game’s story, they will need to purchase the expansion to see what happens over in Western Rohan.
CM Rick Heaton says ”The epic story in Helm’s Deep is very tightly entwined with the epic battle system. The story in Helm’s Deep is the epic battle we all know from the books. We’ve returned to the core story line from the lore and that line leads in a direct path, laid out by the Professor himself, into Helm’s Deep and the battles and heroic deeds that occur there. As a result, this means the epic story requires the purchase of the Helm’s Deep expansion.”
“Epic Story Guy” MadeOfLions also said ”It’s a change that serves to reward the players that do pick up the expansion, and makes the expansion a better deal, more worth your time and your money,” he writes. “This is just an expansion change for now — I’m hoping we can keep the epic story free in other updates.”
The Helm’s Deep expansion launches on November 18th.

The Premium edition, which will run you $59.99, comes with the complete cosmetic set mentioned above, 2000 turbine points, 10 more quest log slots, two new titles, a +25% XP cloak, and more.

RIFT, arguably the best free to play MMO on the market right now, has a long lifetime ahead of it, but like all games, RIFT too will be gone someday.
Simon Ffinch says that he wan’t Trion to gift the game to the community.”So this is probably going to get me into all sorts of trouble, but I would hope that when that day comes, as we’ve talked about — many years in the future — I would hope that Trion shows that it’s the company that I truly believe it to be and gives RIFT as a gift to the community,” Ffinch recently told GamerZines.com. “It’s like, ‘guys thank you for playing for the past 20 years, here’s the server code. Run it if you wish.’”
“That would be the way I’d like to see RIFT go.
