It has been an uninteresting year for Sound of Violence and a not so great year for gaming. With 2015 right around the corner we're all eagerly awaiting new releases such as H1Z1, Toxikk and Grand Theft Auto 5 in January and of course The Witcher 3, The Division, Metal Gear Solid and many more titles later next year.What is in store for Sound of Violence in 2015?H1Z1
We will at first focus on H1Z1 which is due to come out on Steam on January 15th, 2015. We have a lot of new recruits and expect the community to grow pretty fast.
This time around we have a lot of new recruits from North America, Canada and even Australia and New Zealand, so we expect people to be online all the time. On which server in H1Z1 we'll play we don't know yet. We'd like everyone to play together but if connectivity issues become a problem we might have to split up to different servers.
At the moment our in-game plans for H1Z1 are pretty basic, more in depth information can be found here
However, we don't know how the game will play out yet and this might change. The H1Z1 page
will be updated a few weeks after the game's release with more relevant information on how Sound of Violence plays the game and what our goals are in-game.
We will host a get together soon after release (1-3 days) so everyone can get to know each other. That will also be the time to create the 4 man groups you are all looking forward to. I personally will be creating a survival squad who's goal it is to survive as long as possible, while moving around the map constantly as to not make it too easy.Toxikk
Ah, remember the good old Unreal and Quake days? Toxikk aims to bring this back, check it out at http://toxikk.com/
. We will be hosting several servers for this game to boost our community, this will be purely fun / casual gameplay unless the provide proper support for clan matches but we'll have to see about that. Toxikk is scheduled to release January 22nd, 2015.Grand Theft Auto 5
As of this moment we don't know yet what is in store for the PC version. We don't expect it to be amazingly different but we're happy that R* has taken their time with the PC version of the game. It will support 4K and will have a video editor specially for the PC, whether it will support more than 32 players online or if there are any other PC specific features we don't know yet.
You can join the GTA Online crew on Social Club right here: http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/sound_of_violence
- we hope to have lots of crew wars and dominate the leaderboards.Servers!
We have a bunch of new servers up, which you can find over here: http://soundofviolence.eu/index.php?page=servers
- If you have any suggestions for a game we should be supporting, contact me and I will make it happen if it's viable.
In 2015 our Minecraft server will be upgraded to 1.8.x - this means we will lose our world and everything in it but we will gain all the new features from 1.7 and 1.8 and we'll be able to add all the new mods to the server. When this will happen we are not sure yet, but probably somewhere in April depending on how fast people are updating their mods.
This doesn't mean you shouldn't play on the current 1.6.4 server! It will remain online even after we upgraded to 1.8 and we'll only take it down if people completely stop playing all together.
That is all for now. Happy New Year!
