Former CCP Games President Mike Tinney is working with a new studio called Fitness Interactive Experience (FIX) and creating a fitness MMO called UtiliFit. According to our information, Utilifit is being designed to get people up and moving through an â€˜interactive social media platformâ€™.
Founded in 2012, FIX has recently finished prototyping UtiliFIT, a mobile platform-based activity game that challenges its players to complete micro-physical challenges throughout the day.Â UtiliFIT enables players to cooperate and compete with each other on a large scale and to interact meaningfully with people around the world while building healthier, more active lives.Â An early playable beta version of the game will become available in December â€“ just in time for New Yearâ€™s resolutions and to help offset holiday season weight gains.
Diablo III to Release May 15th, Digital Pre-Order & Download Now Available
One decade-long wait is finally over as another much shorter one begins, gamers all over the world will be counting down the hours until May 15th, the day Diablo III is released. We predicted last week that Monday, March 12th made the most sense for a release date announcement given Blizzardâ€™s track record of release date announcements on Mondays, but it appears theyâ€™ve decided to curb that habit.
There are 3 ways to pre-order the game; you can do so on your Battle.net Account Page, through any major third party retailer or if you currently have a World of Warcraft Annual Pass (or plan on purchasing one) youâ€™ll get the digital copy of the standard edition as a bonus.
It looks like those who placed Digital Pre-Orders and Annual Pass holders can pre-download the game right now! The game is encrypted though and installation is not available
until launch day.
The War Z is under heavy fire from consumers on Valveâ€™s Steam gaming platform. According to a report on Develop-Online, players are alleging that the game has been released missing key features advertised on the Steam page and that it is in more of an â€˜alpha stageâ€™. In response, Executive Producer Sergey Titov has taken to the Steam forums and altered the gameâ€™s description on Steam.
â€œWeâ€™ve taken steps to correct this and format information presented on our Steam Store page in a way so it provides more clear information about game features that are present in the Foundation Release and what to expect in the coming weeks,â€ said Titov.
â€œWe also want to extend our apologies to all players who misread information about game features.â€
