Broken Age Act 2 is now set to release in early 2015, developer Double Fine has announced.

Double Fine also said it’s now able to playtest the game from beginning to end, which is taking testers 8-12 hours to complete.

“The goal now is to get all the finale work done so we can hit Alpha on all of Act 2 by the end of the year. That means, as you may have guessed based on recent updates and documentary episodes, the Act 2 ship that will deliver the complete adventure is now looking like it will be early next year.”

Broken Age made a lot of headlines in 2012 with its extremely successful Kickstarter campaign, surpassing its initial goal of $ 400,000 with a total of $ 3.3 million from 87,142 backers.

GameSpot’s review of Broken Age Act 1 gave the game a 7/10 for its terrific voice acting and writing.

Earlier this month, Double Fine announced that it had to cancel an unannounced project and layoff 12 of its employees after a deal with an unnamed publisher fell through.

The Scholar of the First Sin Dark Souls II compilation is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PCs with updated graphics and features. Kevin VanOrd, GameSpot’s biggest Dark Souls fan, considers a return to Drangleic.


Continuing the trend of popular games from the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 going to current-gen systems, From Software announced that the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and DirectX 11 PCs will get a new version of Dark Souls II.

According to a press release, the compilation is called Scholar of the First Sin and it collects Dark Souls II and all the DLC (Crown of the Sunken King, Crown of the Old Iron King, and Crown of the Ivory King) as well as “an array of all new content.”

It will be available April 7 next year and it includes “enhanced graphics in addition to brand new game content including an expanded story featuring additional in-game events and NPC character along with new deadlier enemies and gameplay improvements.” The current-gen version will also increase the maximum number of online players.

From Software isn’t abandoning last-gen gamers or people who already own the game though. Scholar of the First Sin will also be available on PS3, 360, and DirectX 9 PCs as a compilation version that collects the game and DLC missions. While it won’t include the enhanced graphics and sound, those versions (and gamers who already own Dark Souls II) will receive the additional content through a free, “large-scale update (ver. 1.10), which will add new features including an additional NPC to seek out along the treacherous quest through Drangleic as well as expanded story, in-game events, improved balance, and online matchmaking functionality.”
