  • In the first patch from Bluepoint, the update concentrates on “fixing a few stability issues”. There was no detailed set of patch notes to accompany this update, but seems to be a broad set of fixes to help with potential performance issues players may have come across so far.
  • As well as announcing the first update, Bluepoint also shared that they are actively “listening to the community and continuing to work on fixes”. This includes the “gold coin glitch”.

Project EVE

  • Project EVE was first announced back in 2019, a AAA title for both console and PC as semi-open world title. In the latest trailer it previews a taste of the action combat, with breath-taking graphics demonstrating the type of game it aims to be.
  • So far there is no launch window confirmed for Project EVE, but by looking at the website they still seem to be recruiting so it may be some time before we see some further in-game footage.
  • Previous screenshots show that the world is in a post-apocalyptic setting, which looks to be influenced by Nier Automata. The developer has said they are inspired by Nier Automata and the latest God of War. The main character also has some bionic features going on if you take a closer look at her back. Yokotaro himself actually praised the title, if that’s not endorsement enough, I don’t know what is.
