Jumpgate spiritual successor Warp Nexus announced for consoles, PC, and smartphones

Developer Wyrmbyte has announced Warp Nexus, the spiritual successor to cult classic space MMO Jumpgate. It will launch first for PC via Steam Early Access this summer, followed by consoles and smartphones with cross-play enabled later in 2019.

Here is an overview of the game, via Wyrmbyte:

Warp Nexus is the spiritual successor to the Jumpgate Franchise. But it’s taking the suck out of the vacuum of space. In most space games, there’s a whole lot of endless flying to get to somewhere where the action is. Warp Nexus, on the other hand, posits that the universe has been made instantly traverse-able and humanity now takes advantage of this speedy network of warp points for profit and glory… but so do pirates and a whole host of seedy characters.

Warp Nexus is also an MMO that runs itself. While the player spends time in their own hangar and around their ship between missions, an advanced server tech is constantly churning several Space Stations against each other. Economies shift and thrive on what they need, driving a constantly changing list of missions for players to work on. Some are solo, some are co-op, some are PVP, and each player has different types of licenses (think of them as classes) that result in different types of content – mining, escorting, bounty hunts, surveillance, etc.

There’s even a s competitive sport in the Nexus that let’s players fight it out in a scale-able Battle Royale combat mode, earn rewards, prizes, gear, and currency.

Players can also hop into conquest mode where it is no holds barred combat as players try to control the known Nexus stars for their side.

And even more is that players can actually create their own missions and issue them to the highest bidder. Need a resource but don’t have the time or ability to get it done? Make a quest. Need some pirate player taken out? Mark them for a bounty. It’s all customizable, and ensures that the players and their stories are at the center of the missions and quests. Heck, they can even make a mission for themselves if they don’t like what’s on offer, which will be intelligently tied into the economy of the many different Space Stations.

Publisher Devolver Digital and developer Le Cartel have announced Heave Ho, a physics-based local multiplayer game due out for Switch and PC this summer.

Here is an overview of the game, via Devolver Digital:

Heave Ho is a physics-based local multiplayer adventure across an impossibly wide ravine.

Heave Ho unites up to four players with a simple goal – don’t fall to your death. Grapplers will use their own two hands and the outstretched grip of their friends to swing, fling, and soar across each level on their way to victory.

Grab one another’s hands, climb across dangling bodies, and swing your pals to safety in a wobbly, dangly mass of limbs. Customize your character with all manner of stylish accessories and zany accouterment in a vain attempt to remember who you are and which of your hands is the only thing between you and the plummet of doom.

Heave Ho is playable at PAX East 2019 from March 29 to 31.
