Beginning the process is simple. The first time players reach the Neverwinter splash screen, a window will pop up and ask them if they would like to link their Arc account to their Xbox Live gamertag.
When presented with this window, press Y in order to open your Xbox’s browser, which will take you to a page where you can either sign in and link to an existing Arc account or create a new Arc account to link to. Whether you create a new account or link to an existing one, you will receive a Renegade Illusionist companion no matter what.

Once you’ve finished, you will be able to claim your Renegade Illusionist from the Rewards Claim Agent in Protector’s Enclave after completing the quest “Rags to Riches” after the tutorial.

Highly anticipated MMO breaks into Kickstarter Top 20; Company announces hiring of former Eve Online executive, Valerie Massey
AUSTIN, Texas, March 18, 2015 — Independent game developer ArtCraft Entertainment, Inc. announced today that Crowfall™, the highly-anticipated “Throne War Simulator” MMO, is now one of the 20 highest-funded video game projects ever on kickstarter.com. Additionally, the campaign is the most funded video game of the past 12 months, amassing more than $1.2 million from more than 12,500 backers with a week left in the campaign.
Co-founder and Creative Director J. Todd Coleman explains, “Kickstarter remains the unchallenged leader when it comes to crowdfunding for games. Crowfall’s success confirms that the right team, with the right vision, can still incite passion and gain significant momentum.”
On to the strength of this campaign, the company also announced today the hiring of well-known community developer Valerie “Pann” Massey, who formerly served as the senior director of public relations and communication at CCP Games (creators of the venerable EVE Online).
“Our vision is to create a game that feels like a blend between EVE Online and Game of Thrones. Valerie’s experience with EVE Online makes her the perfect person to help us build this community,” said ArtCraft’s Co-founder and President Gordon Walton. “Her experience and our game are a perfect fit.”
Massey will take the role of director of community management, acting as a customer advocate and key liaison to the burgeoning Crowfall community. “When it came to MMOs, I felt like the magician’s assistant who has seen the lady get sawed in half too many times,” explained Massey. “The magic was gone. But when I heard about the concept for Crowfall, I saw something unique on the horizon at last. I had to be a part of it.”
A new type of online experience, Crowfall is a “Massively Multiplayer Online Throne War Simulator.” Players take the role of kings, queens, mercenaries and assassins in a simulation of a feudal world that includes castle building, siege equipment and territorial conquest system.
Founded by two of the most experienced executives in the history of online gaming, ArtCraft Entertainment is the combined effort of J. Todd Coleman (director, Shadowbane, Wizard101, Pirate101) and Gordon Walton (executive producer, Ultima Online, Star Wars Galaxies, Star Wars: the Old Republic). The stated goal of ArtCraft Entertainment is to “push the design of Massively Multiplayer Online games in bold new directions.”
Below is a message from Rob Overmeyer, executive producer for Neverwinter, announcing the new April 7 release date for Neverwinter: Elemental Evil.
When we first announced Neverwinter: Elemental Evil in January, our team was excited to introduce the community to our biggest expansion launch for Neverwinter to-date. With our efforts to revamp nearly all of our in-game systems, including the introduction of the level cap increase and the new Oathbound Paladin class, our plan was more ambitious than we had anticipated.
Our Neverwinter team wants to ensure that we deliver our promise of a high quality expansion, and in order to do so, we need a few more weeks to fine tune the Neverwinter: Elemental Evil experience. Consequently, we have made the decision to delay the launch of Neverwinter: Elemental Evil to April 7.
We appreciate your patience as we take this extra time to make sure the Neverwinter: Elemental Evil experience lives up to our expectations. Our team is extremely excited for players to experience the new story, zones, critter groups and additional new changes coming to our game in April. Stay tuned to our blog and social channels as we continue to share additional details for Neverwinter: Elemental Evil.
I want to see this game in action , before I judge it !
Battleborn is developed by the teams behind the critically acclaimed hybrid role-playing-shooter Borderlands 2, and is an ambitious fusion of genres. The game combines highly-stylized visuals and frenetic first-person shooting, with Gearbox’s industry-leading co-operative combat, and an expansive collection of diverse heroes. Battleborn is set in the distant future of an imaginative science-fantasy universe where players experience both a narrative-driven co-operative campaign, as well as competitive multiplayer matches.
“If Borderlands 2 is a shooter-looter, Battleborn is a hero-shooter,” said Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software. “As a genre-fused, hobby-grade, co-operative and competitive FPS exploding with eye-popping style and an imaginative universe, Battleborn is the most ambitious video game that Gearbox has ever created.”
“Battleborn represents the combined might of the development and publishing teams behind the success of Borderlands 2, which to date has sold-in more than 9-million units worldwide and has become 2K’s highest-selling game of all time,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “The size, scope, and ambition of Battleborn are unlike any other title in 2K’s history, and the result is a defining next-gen co-operative
Nice !! Free on next gen consoles ! I like that !

In Claptastic Voyage, Handsome Jack has found something ludicrously powerful within Claptrap’s mind.

Claptastic Voyage will answer important Borderlands questions like why Claptrap loves dubstep so much all while exploring his inner most thoughts. You’ll also get a chance to visit all-new environments and make new friends (plus run into some old ones get some new gear as well as new unique Achievements or Trophies.

What are Heists?
Heists are a new type of gameplay experience inside GTA Online – they are massive, multi-layered, 4-player co-operative missions that encourage players to work together and make the most of their individual strengths, and a team’s level of communication and coordination can make or break each mission.
Rather than existing inside the current forms of GTA Online, they are now essentially a game within a game, designed to add another major option to the experience of GTA Online alongside Free Mode, traditional co-op jobs, competitive modes, and races. Each Heist has its own story and set of missions that have you interacting with new and returning characters from the story of GTAV.
Sometimes you will be working alone or in pairs, and sometimes as one tight unit in order to execute your objectives, and each player will have a completely different experience depending on their role in each mission. Communication is key. You’ll need to be in close contact with your team and sometimes synchronize your action in order to succeed.
There are five total Heists with the first serving as a tutorial for two players.
Hosting and Joining Heists
To host a Heist in GTA Online, your character must be Rank 12 and own a high-end apartment. If you are under rank 12 or do not own a high end apartment, you can still join a Heist another player invites you to.
To join a Heist as a crew member without an invite, go to the Quick Job menu on the phone. Select “Play Heist” to quickly jump into the action.
Once you complete the prerequisites above, Lester will give you a call to set up your first Heist. Once you complete your first Setup Mission, there is a brief delay before Lester calls you for the next part of the Heist. There is a small delay between completing your first Heist and Lester’s call for the next Heist as well.
To replay a Heist, simply call Lester using your in-game phone and select the “Request a Heist” option when he answers. From there, you’ll be able to play any of the Heists you’ve previously completed. There is a cool down period after the completion of each Heist before that Heist can be replayed.
Triggering a Heist
Players who are rank 12 or above and own a high-end apartment will receive a phone call from Lester.
When a player accepts Lester’s call and begins the Heist they become the Heist leader and can choose to invite other players from the lobby, their friend’s list, or players from the previous Heist. Players of any rank that have already completed the GTA Online tutorial up to and including Gerald’s first LTS job can play Heists.
The heist leader has the responsibility of fronting the setup costs to acquire whatever equipment and additional NPC personnel needed to pull off the job – which amounts to a percentage of the final payout.
Members earn money for completing each setup mission.
Heist leaders do not earn any money for completing a setup mission, though they do earn 10% more RP than other members. Leaders can assign themselves a larger portion of the take once the entire Heist is complete.
Successfully completing a setup missions drops players back into Freemode. The Heist leader can then use their phone to return to the Heist planning board and start the next job in the strand.
Heists are available for replay after completing each full strand as Heist leader. Players can do this by calling Lester and requesting a Heist. There is a short delay before you can replay the same Heist again as Leader. Heists are available for players to join as crew members without delay as long as there is a Leader with an active lobby to join. The Heist replay board becomes available at your high-end apartment once you have completed all 5 Heist finales as Leader or crew member (but you must also have reached rank 12 and visited Lester to access it).
There is also a cool-down period between the completion of each Heist and when the next one becomes available. At the same time, new Adversary modes will progressively unlock as you complete each Heist. Adversary modes are fun new asymmetrical gameplay types within GTA Online.
There are 16 new missions spread across 3 new modes:
Come Out To Play
A team of three Runners just trying to make it home, and a team of Hunters are out for blood. Runners are well-armed but limited to movement by foot, while the opposition wield free-aim shotguns and ride motorbikes or ATVs. Hunters must stay on their bikes and have access to unlimited lives, while the Runners have just one life but all their weapons available to pick off the Hunters at will.
Up to four players stand their ground, outnumbered but not outgunned as they fight to survive against up to 6 determined attackers in a location defense mode, GTA style. Attackers have unlimited lives but fight only with sawn-off shotguns. Defenders have full use of all their weapons .
Hasta La Vista
The chase is on as Truckers in big rig cabs hunt down a team of Cyclists. The Cyclists’ goal is simple: reach the final checkpoint without getting crushed under the wheels of the pursuing trucks. Without traditional weapons the Truckers must rely solely on their vehicles to crush the Cyclists. Meanwhile, the Cyclists must harness the maneuverability and acceleration of their bikes to evade the trucks, while keeping an eye over their shoulder. If one of the Cyclists reaches the checkpoint, the Cyclists win. If all Cyclists are terminated, the Truckers prevail.
New Daily Objectives will give you a rotating series of challenges to take on for GTA$ rewards (unlocks at rank 15). Players also earn RP for completing their daily objectives. There are three new objectives per day – complete them all to earn a cash reward. Players can stack up challenges over consecutive days and weeks to earn bonuses of up to $500,000.
Elite challenges – Each Heist Finale has its own set of Elite Challenges. These consist of multiple target criteria and can be completed multiple times.
There are also Special Heist Completion bonuses that can only be achieved once per person. For example, completing objectives under a specific time or sustaining minimal vehicle damage. Successfully completing all these targets net players additional cash at the end of the heist and can be repeated on subsequent play-throughs. (These challenges cannot be completed on easy difficulty and become void if trip-skips are used.)
Each Heist has its own Elite Challenge. Here are some examples:
First Time – Completing each Heist Finale for the first time, will net you a bonus cash reward
All In Order Challenge – Complete all Heists in order, including Setups, to receive a $1,000,000 cash bonus
Loyalty Challenge – Complete all Heists, including Setups, with the same team of players to receive an additional $1,000,000 bonus
Criminal Mastermind Challenges – rewards players $10,000,000 one-time bonus for completing all 5 Heists in order, including all setups, with the same group of players, without anyone losing a single life on hard difficulty. The one-off bonus challenges are linked to in game awards. You can monitor your award progress via the Stats > Awards tab in the Pause Menu.
As players progress through Heists, new vehicles will become available for players including the Mammoth Hydra Jet, Valkyrie Attack Helicopter, Insurgent with .50 cal mounted machine gun, and more
Additional new equipment and items will include
o Night Vision Goggles
o Flare Gun
o New outfits, masks, t-shirt, helmets
Alongside the launch of Heists come a range of changes and additions to GTA Online including:
New point animation
Ability to email other players
New Free Mode Activities
Players also have new opportunities for cash and RP rewards with new activities added to the world in Free Mode. Be on the lookout for calls from Lester, who may need help to distract the cops in a specific area while Lester’s accomplices finish their criminal business. Lamar may call looking for help destroying a vehicle or two, while Trevor and Ron need occasional help picking their business rival’s planes out of the sky. Along with GTA$ and RP bonuses, there are all-new Awards available for completing these challenges with style.
Narrated by Peter Gelencser, Senior Level Designer, the new 7-minute gameplay video takes players on a guided tour of parts of No Man’s Land, one of the giant regions available for exploration in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Watch Geralt discover the secret behind the phantom of the trade route and see him fight a Royal Wyvern to save members of a remote village in need of help.
