The Inner Gamer,

315: Outriders, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and Epic Games Metaverse

April 19, 2021

We return to Outriders after they patched the server issues. Things are much better technically but could still use some work. Regardless, the game is a blast to play and the story is getting interesting. People Can Fly definitely delivers in the areas that matter with this game. Brett also finally finishes Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla 87 hours later and shares his thoughts on the full campaign experience.

In the news, PS5 finally answered our call and fixed a lot of the issues we complained about with the PS5. It doesn’t solve anything but at least it’s a step in the right direction. Age of Empires 4 finally reveals gameplay with an announcement of 4 full-length campaigns and 8 playable civilizations. Amazon Game Studios also cancels another game with their Lord of the Rings MMO.

In our discussion, we explore the future metaverse that Epic Games is betting big on. Tim Sweeney and his team want to build another world interconnected digitally. Think Ready Player One. They got a huge investment with 1 billion dollars and more to come. Will this change our future for the better or worse?
