Blood Knights gets new publisher, release window

By  •  News

Blood Knights

After repeated delays for various reasons, German developer Deck 13 Interactive’s Blood Knights might finally have its real release window in sight, according to a press release from the game’s new publisher, Kobalt Games. Blood Knights, which will be the first release under the newly formed Kobalt Games label, is now scheduled for a Q4 2013 release, meaning it could potentially arrive on XBLA as soon as next week.

For Deck 13’s hack-n-slash title, it’s been a long and winding road to release. Originally announced in July of 2012, the co-op vampire-hunting game was first planned for an October 31, 2012 release. Unfortunately for those looking forward to Blood Knights, Halloween 2012 came and went without a word from Deck 13 or its thenpublisher, DTP Entertainment.

The game’s developer took to its official Facebook page a couple weeks later to reveal that Blood Knights was still coming and would arrive in December 2012. “We are sorry to announce that the release date for Blood Knights has been delayed until December,” wrote a Deck 13 representative. “Keep your seats, sceptics… [sic] as this is due to legal negotiations which has [sic] taken us longer than we planned.”

Alien Fear

Developer: City Interactive

Alien Fear XBLA

Alien Fear is an Unreal Engine 3-powered sci-fi first person shooter headed to XBLA, presumably at some point in 2013. Though we’re assuming that the above image is a target screen rather than an actual in-game image, developer City Interactive is promising that the use of Epic Games’ ubiquitous engine is allowing them to create an Xbox Live Arcade title that boasts “visually stunning, large-scale environments with impressive long-range vistas and expressionistic lighting.” The co-op shooter has yet to be shown in action, but XBLAFans is looking forward to finding out if the game lives up to the promise shown in the above image whenever we get our first real look at it.
