Kena: Bridge of Spirits Has Already Recouped Its Development Costs

Kena: Bridge of Spirits was released in September to largely positive reviews (including a 9 out of 10 from us) and has performed well in sales. So much so that, according to developer Ember Labs, the game has already broken even on its development cost. In an interview with Bloomberg, Ember Lab heads Josh and Mike Grier discussed Kena's road from development to release. To their surprise, the game has apparently sold well, and while they don't divulge specific sale numbers, they say it's already recouped its initial development costs. It's unclear how much money Kena had behind it, but this is great news for the small studio.  "It's hard to tell what's a huge success," said Josh in the article. "Sony's happy." Kena: Bridge of Spirits is a third-person action-adventure title that stars Kena, a spirit guide, who guides small critters called the Rot to purify a land plagued by a supernatural blight. Along the way, you'll assist wayward souls to help ferry them to the afterlife, while action consists of melee and ranged combat. The game has an old-school linear design and scope, plus it's quite the looker in the art department (Ember Labs cut its teeth as an animation studio, after all). Kena is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via the Epic Games Store.  Be sure to read the full interview to learn more about the Kena: Bridge of Spirits' pre-release marketing, as well as our coverage hub for extensive background on the game itself.

    World of Warships: Legends Halloween Update Now Live

    World of Warships: Legends introduces the first campaign with a ship of choice as the ultimate prize. It’s backed by a Halloween event, split into two parts, and more new ships!

    Element of Choice Campaign 

    The headliners of Element of Choice, Tier VII Premium destroyers Friesland and Loyang, are both quite unique. Pan-European Friesland doesn’t carry torpedoes on board, making it a perfect gunboat, while Loyang is the first Pan-Asian ship in Legends, paving the way for others. 100 milestones through 5 weeks with Active Admiralty backing and one of those ships is yours! If you want both, there’s an option to buy the one you didn’t pick as a reward for doubloons.

    Saving Transylvania and A Light in the Dark

    October is the time for scary stuff. There’s plenty of that in Legends with a Halloween event in two parts. The first one is all about helping Transylvania reach the Portal to escape the attack of malicious Rasputin and his minions. The second one, vice versa, is about shutting the same Portal once and for all, but Rasputin and his fleet of minions want to have a say in that…

    The events will be available separately, with Saving Transylvania making the way for a Light in the Dark. Among the prizes are a Tier III Premium UK Battleship Bellerophon, Tier IV Italian cruiser Genova-themed Commanders, and a selection of in-game items!

    Soviet Cruisers in Early Access  

    More reinforcements for the Red Navy! Three new Sonar equipped cruisers with high-caliber guns aboard, Kotovsky, Gorky, and Tallinn at Tiers IV-VI respectively, arrive in the early access. A personal mission is a compliment for each of those, and as usual, the next update will make this alternate branch researchable with Tier VII Riga topping it off.

    Balance changes and quality of life improvements 

    Carriers’ concealment, including the Dark Silhouette skill, was toned down. Now waging war against them is easier! As for the other improvements, probably the biggest one is the option to see the ship’s loadout before acquiring it, including switchable consumables. This works for Premium and Bureau ships the same way. 

    Be brave this spooky season and turn the tide!
