New life breathed into French cult hit E.Y.E

The creators of E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy may have devised the medium’s most cringeworthy moniker, but they certainly can’t be faulted for their continuing support for the game itself. Almost two years after this FPS/RPG hybrid arrived, French developer Streum on studio has just issued a massive update for the game.

Amongst the new features are two adversarial modes known as Battle Royale and Team Artefact. The former is a round-based free-for-all in which “the last man standing wins” while the latter appears to be a capture the flag variant. Players can also look forward to six new maps and four co-op missions.

The expansion, dubbed Blood Games, will also include dozens of balancing adjustments and big fixes, ranging from the minor (“sound of the sentry could be looped in some circumstances) to the rather more significant (“dedicated server didn’t run the map chosen during setup”).

In what can only be described as a major oversight, the main game is still called E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy. You can check out the full list of updates here.

do a lot of aussies play this? i’ve heard good things about it. Just sorta forgot about it :\

 

Not really. I can run a server if anyone wants to play Blood Games or EYE Co op. Just add me on steam (go to my profile for my steam ID) and if I’m online and not doing something else I can throw up a server for you.

It’s certainly a weird game but you might find it oddly rewarding if you give it a chance. Think 1 part Deus Ex, 3 parts Quake 3, served with a terrible translation from french. My brief experience with blood games has been “meh”, co op is pretty cool though and there’s 4 new co-op missions. Plus the campaign.

 

I played about an hour of this game but then got sidetracked with other games. I think I got it during one of the Steam season sales with a whole bunch of other games, so I naturally skipped over many of them.

I mean to try this again though.

ahh k k, so got coop! sounds cool. I’ve heard its got a cyberpunk deus ex feel so it which i dig. I’ll look into it see what the gameplay is like/etc. So it’s online for what 32 players? but you can do coop missions too?

 

Dunno what max player count is for multiplayer Blood Games. Good luck finding 32 players though.

You can play individual ‘side’ missions co op, as well as the whole campaign.

 

I bought a four-pack of this (cost US$20) just yesterday after reading about the new expansion on Steam. Will check it out and see how it plays.

 

If you are not sure if you will be interested than have a read of this. If you are still interested after that long read, than you are going to have quite a time.

Also: what is so cringe-worthy about E.Ψ.Ǝ: Divine Cybermancy…
