In Crowfall, the days are for partying, but the nights… are for being very afraid. Or at least wary of the many monsters that come out during the night cycle. The latest post on the official site shows off how the game’s day and night cycle will affect the game, starting chiefly with the fact that the often-seen “hunger” versions of monsters will emerge during the night cycle instead of simply in the later seasons of a given campaign world. That may seem to remove some of the anxiety from the game, but since the seasons will move from long days and short nights to the inverse, later stages will still be crawling with corrupted monsters.

The trouble with having one universal hub in Albion Online is that basically no one cares about the five other hubs in the game. That’s what the game’s next content update, Merlyn, is partly meant to address. While Caerleon will not be changed, each of the other five royal cities will be getting bonuses to refining certain types of goods and item production. Thus, players will be inspired to seek out the other cities with Caerleon as a fallback, rather than just chilling forever in Caerleon.

Rust players who step out of line in The Compound, a new “safe-zone” location packed with scientists, will be sorry when they are taken down by special turrets that shoot first and…never ask questions. The zealous nature of the turrets offers players a truly safe place to interact with others to trade, form parties and to get access to special vending machines that dispense clothes, tools, building supplies, traps and more.

As Brendan detailed in his EVE Fanfest coverage last month, EVE Online’s
structures are due for a huge overhaul, be they NPC fortification or player-built. CCP has a dev blog up right now detailing exactly what to expect as both player-deployed Outposts and Conquerable Stations are ripped down and converted to the new Upwell Structure system.
