More details have emerged about CCP’s vampire-themed MMO, World of Darkness, chief among them the revelation that the game is far from cancelled, despite rumors suggesting otherwise. Following CCP’s merger with White Wolf, the new property will apparently be taking a lot of its cues from Vampire: The Masquerade, which instantly propels it to the top of my list of games to watch.
The Masquerade connection holds true in the details revealed by senior producer McDonough, with blood used as currency and players being able to scale a complex political hierarchy in quasi real world locations. However, don’t expect to hear more anytime soon.
“We’re going back into lay-low mode, then you guys will see some really core stuff,” he said. “There is no release date because we have a lot to live up to. Eve changed the game industry and we want World of Darkness to do the same.”
After being in the works for over a year, XMBC’s new media player: XMBC 11.o or “Eden” is finally available for download.
Eden’s numerous new features include Addon Rollbacks, improvements in the default skin (Confluence), speed increases, a simpler library, movie set scraping, additional protocol handling, better networking support, better handling of unencrypted BluRay content and structures, adjustable display refresh rate in OSX (to match the already available feature in Windows and Linux), AirPlay support, an upgraded weather service with geoip lookup, and much, much more.
Eden has also widened its market via first in-sync stable release for the Apple2 TV, iPad and other iOs Devices. It has also made itself available for Ubuntu users through XBMCbuntu Final.
XBMCbuntu is very similar to XBMClive albeit a few upgrades. It is now built upon a full LXDE desktop environment, which has a web browser (Chromium) with a fully updated (and updatable) version of Flash built-in and a GUI package manager ready to install and update all of the normal Ubuntu programs a typical Linux user might use.
The user can now toggle between XBMC and a normal desktop at will. And XBMC is also upgrade able without crashing the XBMC experience. “Naturally, those users who do not want to see the desktop will never need to. When you boot your computer, you will be booted directly into the XBMC homescreen, just as you are right now. The only clear difference is the new power underneath the hood. Those users who have already installed the Beta version of XBMCbuntu can upgrade to final using the apt-get upgrade commands.” says the experts on the XBMC website.
Eden is now available for download in XBMC’s website.
