Metroid Prime 4 Studio Hires Long-Time Call Of Duty: Black Ops Dev

Published

on

Retro Studios, the team behind Metroid Prime and the two Donkey Kong Country Returns games, has made a big hire as it works on Metroid Prime 4. VGC has announced that the studio has brought on Bharathwaj Nandakumar, a long-time Activision veteran who has worked on the Call of Duty: Black Ops series.

According to VGC, Nandakumar was most recently credited as lead engineer on Black Ops 4. Across the past decade, he has worked on the whole series. He was reportedly brought into the Nintendo-owned studio back in April, but it’s only being reported on now.

Retro Studios is working on Metroid Prime 4, but this was not always the case. In fact, the game was being worked on by another team until early 2019, when development was restarted with the original trilogy developer at the helm.

Since then, it’s been reported that about half the Metroid Prime 3 team is still at the studio, and that the director of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze was also working there again after a stint at Super Lucky’s Tale developer Playful Corp.

It is not actually clear whether Nandakumar is working on Metroid Prime 4, as we’re not sure if Retro Studios is working on another game. The new Metroid Prime was announced at E3 2017, but no gameplay footage has been shown from any iteration of the game as of yet.

Hopefully we’ll see something of the game soon–the last Metroid Prime game was the underwhelming Metroid Prime: Federation Force for the 3DS in 2016.

PUBG Mobile update 0.19.0 with Livik map coming on July 7

PUBG Mobile devs released the name and even teased the upcoming Livik map for update 0.19.0. And now Tencent Games has announced that the new update with the Livik map will arrive on July 7. This has been announced in multiple tweets from the official Twitter handle. PUBG Mobile has even teased photos of the upcoming Livik map.

PUBG Mobile Season 14: Confirmed details

But for the most part, the Livik Map has been revealed, since it is available in Beta. As for the details that are confirmed, PUBG Mobile Season 14 will bring the new Livik map. This was only available in closed beta and the devs made it official recently on social media. PUBG Mobile confirmed that the secret map is called Livik Map. And now the developers have shared a new tweet which announces that the upcoming update 0.19.0 will be released on July 7.

We have played the new secret map which we expect to be the Livik map and though it was not the final version of the map. We found the map rather small and would make for some tight action. From what we have played it is apparent that the map is rather small, and could be 2x2km in size. This would make it the smallest map yet.

When experiencing the gameplay of Livik Map that will be added with update 0.19.0, right off the bat you will notice that it has elements from all the other four maps in each corner. There are some new weapons on this map as well, these include the P90 SMG as well as the SPAS-12 shotgun. The inclusion of these weapons along with how abundantly guns are available, goes to show that the devs want this to be an action packed map.

The Livik map is littered with buildings and obstacles. These will also help in combat by providing cover while engaging the enemy. There are some new buildings in the map as well. Plus there are some which show that some buildings from the other maps are also being used here.

Though this is an extremely small map there are some vehicles. These will still be useful to rush players and take cover behind. The old vehicles like the Buggy, Bike, and the UAZ are present. Besides these there is a new monster truck in the map which can run over anything. This vehicle goes over boulders and other cars. The Livik Map is playable right now on the open beta version of PUBG mobile which features the update 0.19.0.

Ancient Secret Event: Leaked details

A match in the Ancient Secret Event mode starts off like any other match on the Erangel map. But suddenly from a large structure, a titan made of sand rises out. The skies are covered in a sandstorm and the titan invokes three ancient egyptian buildings. These buildings then disappear and reappear in different parts of the map. The buildings are similar to ‘Ruins’ on the Sanhok map, but are clearly ancient Egyptian. These buildings when people land on them start flying high in the sky.

The loot in these buildings is top tier, and there are puzzles to get even more loot. Players can defeat a mummy to get the best guns and armor in the game. Players have to jump off these buildings and use parachutes to reach land or other floating buildings around.

Besides this, other details about the next season has been leaked by Mr Ghost Gaming on his YouTube channel. The supposed trailer of the upcoming season has also been leaked. According to leaks the upcoming season is set to feature the Royale Pass called ‘Spark The Flame’.

Some of the sets leaked seem to be inspired from the Egyptian mythology. The posters, frames, as well as the rewards have been showed in the video. There are new skins, costumes, headgear coming with the next season. As for the trailer it seems to be show the character skins that have been leaked which means that it is possibly real.

A new set has been added to PUBG Mobile called the Jungle Hunter set. This new set has been added as part of the Ancient Spin part of the game. Like most sets these are high rarity items. Which means players may not get these items by trying their luck once. Another set added to the Ancient Spin recently is the Jungle Prey set. This includes a new costume as well as headgear.

PUBG Mobile recently announced that the secret map that the developers have been working on is called Livik Map. This was only available in closed beta and now it seems that the devs have made it official. In a new tweet on the official Twitter handle, PUBG Mobile confirmed that the upcoming one is called Livik Map. Though there are definite visuals of the map in the image shares, the word ‘Livik’ itself seems to show elements of the map. And from that we can assume that it really is the same map.
