Nintendo Shares Tons Of New Metroid Dread Details In Its Second Official Report

Here comes interesting details related to one of the most anticipated games in the Nintendo Switch catalog. We are talking about Metroid Dread.

In the text that we leave you below, from Nintendo, they offer us content related to the second report of the game, which focuses on the E.M.M.I and more. Remember that this morning we received its gameplay.

Here it is:

In this installment, we will focus on the threat that looms over Samus Aran: the E.M.M.I In their day, they were sent by the Galactic Federation on a reconnaissance mission, but these robots so large and agile, as well as deadly, are now dedicated to hunting down Samus relentlessly.

Read on to find out more about these mighty machines and the changes they bring to the world of Metroid …

What are E.M.M.I?

An Interplanetary Multiform Mobile Explorer (or E.M.M.I) is an agile robot designed to reconnoiter the terrain and extract DNA from the samples it collects. The Galactic Federation sent several of them to the unknown planet ZDR to investigate the X parasite, a life form capable of taking on the appearance of other organisms. However, contact with the E.M.M.I was lost when they arrived at ZDR.

When Samus crosses paths with the E.M.M.I on her mission to clarify what is happening in ZDR, she notices that the robots’ behavior and purpose appear to have been altered.

E.M.M.I is a Galactic Federation robot, so in theory, they shouldn’t be Samus’s enemies. However, the E.M.M.I our heroine encounters identify her as a target and pursue her without giving her a break. We believe that the fact that E.M.M.I lack feelings, combined with their incredible power, will make players shiver with fear. ”

What happens if Samus is caught?

E.M.M.Is move freely within their zones. Depending on what their sensors detect, they are programmed to perform up to three different actions, differentiated by the color of the light that shines on their heads.

  • Patrol mode (blue light)

Go through the area without having detected Samus.

  • Surveillance mode (yellow light)

Investigate a suspicious vibration.

  • Pursuit mode (red light)

Chase Samus at high speed after spotting her.

If the E.M.M.Is catch Samus, it is very likely that she will not survive. Be very careful and avoid being detected while exploring the E.M.M.I zones.

If the E.M.M.I claw at you, you have a tiny chance of saving your skin. Execute a counterattack at the precise moment the E.M.M.I open to attack you. Of course, the interval is so short that it is practically impossible to execute the kickback successfully. In short, better safe than sorry: don’t let them catch you! ”

Don’t worry, there is always a checkpoint nearby, which will be of great help if things go wrong and Samus is captured.

E.M.M.I zone doors

E.M.M.I are held in their assigned E.M.M.I areas. These areas are separated from the rest of the world by doors that only Samus can pass through.

The doors will lock when the E.M.M.I visually detect Samus and start chasing her. To open them again, you will have to make the E.M.M.I lose track of you.

Development team transmission ~

“The areas where you have to deal with E.M.M.Is are limited. What a stress if you had to deal with this stress continuously! ”

“When you enter an E.M.M.I zone, the layout of the terrain, and the location of the gates will be recorded on the map, helping you decide your path. Don’t forget to stay calm and check the map when you enter one of these areas. ”

New Skill: Spectral Camouflage

Spectral camouflage is one of Samus’s new Aeion abilities: it is an optical camouflage that makes her invisible. As long as this ability is activated, Samus will be able to move without causing the slightest noise. The optical sensors of the E.M.M.I will not detect it either.

Samus can activate this ability by consuming a special type of energy called Aeion. However, if Samus walks or takes any other action while using this ability, the Aeion energy will be spent more quickly. If it is completely depleted, Samus will still be able to use the spectral cloak, but it will cost her own energy. Manage these resources very carefully.

~ Development team transmission ~

“Thanks to the spectral cloak, you will not only prevent the E.M.M.I from discovering Samus, but you will also be able to pass through doors that close when a human is detected.”

“This ability is useful against all sorts of enemies, not just E.M.M.I, so you may want to save it for specific moments if you are low on energy.”

Are E.M.M.Is invincible?

E.M.M.I’s protective armor is made from the toughest materials in the universe and is capable of repelling Samus’ basic attacks.

However, by drawing power from the central units (the computers that manage each E.M.M.I zone), Samus’ cannon will temporarily boost, becoming the Omega Cannon, allowing her to fire the Omega Burst and Omega Blast. E.M.M.Is are defenseless against both attacks.

Omega Burst

When Samus has the Omega Cannon activated, press and holds the L button to aim, and without releasing it, press the Y button to fire the Omega Burst, a powerful rapid-fire attack. Hit the E.M.M.I head repeatedly to overheat the protective shield. When you destroy it, it will expose the core, which is the weak point of the E.M.M.I.

Download omega

Hold down the R button while aiming the Omega Cannon to charge a shot. When fully charged, press the Y button for a deadly omega blast. Hit the exposed core of E.M.M.I to kill it. As soon as you defeat the E.M.M.I, the Omega Cannon will revert to Samus’s regular Cannon.

~ Development team transmission ~

Samus cannot move while preparing the omega discharge. You must overcome your fears as the deadly E.M.M.I approaches and load the weapon, then unload all its energy and finish off the enemy. You will notice how the tension builds within you, but if you manage to execute the attack successfully, you will feel incredible satisfaction. ”

How many E.M.M.Is are there?

Several E.M.M.Is were shown in the presentation trailer, including two different colored models and one that was broken.

However, on the game’s cover, the shadows of seven E.M.M.Is appear behind Samus. It seems there are more robots than we thought!

~ Development team transmission ~

“Each E.M.M.I has different skills and you will surely wonder which ones in particular.E.M.M.Is still harbors many mysteries… but we will save them for another time. ”

In the next installment …

In the next Metroid Dread report, we’ll talk about seven keywords that define “Metroid.” It will be available shortly!

Lst Ark: Servers are shutting down today to allow more fans to play

Published

Lost Ark: Tier 1 Island Route

On February 11th the new MMORPG Lost Ark was released in its Free2Play version for all people who just want to try it. That’s a lot though, which is why the game is still struggling with server issues. That should change now.

Update 8:05 a.m.: The servers are now down.

When will the servers shut down? As announced by Amazon via the Lost Ark official website, the servers will go offline this morning, that is, on February 13, at 8 a.m. GMT.

The downtime affects all European servers equally and you will not be able to log into the game in the meantime.

How long will they stay offline? The maintenance work is planned for about 3 hours. So if all goes well, you’ll be able to return to the world of Arkesia at 11 a.m.

We’ll keep you up to date in the live ticker when the servers return and if there will be any delays again.

Lost Ark’s last scheduled server maintenance was scheduled for 4 hours, but ended up lasting over 10 hours, leading to some negative reviews on Steam.

Why are the servers going down? Since Lost Ark was released, the new MMORPG has been struggling with long queues and server problems. At the prime time on February 12, more than 1.3 million people played the action game at the same time.

This also meant that some servers had to be completely closed to new players. Especially the server Asta, on which many German players gather, is affected by long queues.

Sometimes the fans have to wait up to 6 hours just to log in. Incidentally, this only works if you already have a character on the Asta server. New players were completely denied access until the evening hours of February 12th.

To address this situation, Amazon is working with Smilegate to increase server capacity. At this point, however, they are not telling us exactly how this is supposed to work.

Are the queues gone then? No, probably not. In the blog post, the publishers emphasize that they only want to create the basic framework for further updates and more server capacities during the downtime.

We, therefore, do not assume that you will be able to continue gambling directly at 11 a.m. without queues, even if that would be desirable.

Lost Ark: An exact time when the servers will go online

Published

Lost Ark: Tier 2 Island Route

Today at 6 p.m. the Lost Ark servers should (re)open to all players after the scheduled maintenance. But nothing will come of the official Lost Ark Launch! The launch is delayed due to “deployment issues”.

An exact time when the servers will go online again has not yet been announced. “We hope that this problem will be fixed in a few hours,” the announcement simply says.

We’ll keep you posted on updates here!

Unfortunately, the launch has been delayed due to deployment issues. We hope this will be fixed in a few hours.

Your patience is appreciated and we will update you soon.

Restart Lost Ark Client

We have received important information from the Community Team. Waiting in the server screen doesn’t seem to help. The server list does not appear there automatically. So a reboot is required.

Waiting at the server screen won’t help, as it will require a fresh launch of the client as far as I’m aware.

You can read our guide for Lost Ark here.

New pioneer package with server change in Lost Ark

Published

Lost Ark guide: List of runes and their effects

Lost Ark has been better received than many thought. Even Amazon did not expect this rush. And so there were long queues on some servers, as was the case with New World. Since a real server change is not possible, many players simply created a new character on a new server. However, some of these players have already redeemed their pioneer package on the first server and thus used it up unnecessarily.

As Amazon has now announced, we will get an additional set of exclusive items on the new server. These items are bound to the character and thus cannot be traded. They can soon be redeemed on every new server.

During the Head Start period for Lost Ark, a massive number of heroes arrived in Arkesia. While we are thrilled to have so many players joining us, we also recognize that this has brought about large queues on our more popular servers, leading to a less than ideal experience for these players.

In an effort to improve the player experience for those who have faced queues, we will be taking several steps to put preventative measures in place ahead of our full launch tomorrow morning, in addition to addressing some of the outstanding issues surrounding Founder’s Pack claims.

Founder’s Pack Redemptions

Players have let us know one of the reasons they are reluctant to switch to lower population servers is because many of them have already redeemed their Founder’s Packs on another server. To help combat this and make exploring new servers a more reasonable choice, we will be granting ALL Founder’s Pack purchasers that redeem their pack by 12 PM PT (8 PM UTC) on Monday, February 14th with an extra set of the exclusive items from the Founder’s Pack they redeemed (e.g., the Founder’s Exclusive Pet and Founder’s Title from the Bronze pack; see full list below) as well as some additional Royal Crystals for Silver, Gold, and Platinum Pack purchasers. These items will not be tradeable, and will be delivered to a player’s Product Inventory so they can be claimed on a new server. Your original Founder’s Pack will not be affected by this, and will remain on the initial server where you redeemed it (or in your Product Inventory, if you have not yet redeemed it).

We are currently working to get these item grants ready to go, and will update players when they are ready to claim — these will be claimable on any new server you choose, so in the meantime we encourage you to find a perfect server to call home.

Founder’s Exclusive Pet (Untradeable)

Silver Pack

Founder’s Exclusive Pet (Untradeable)

Founder’s Platinum Skin (Untradeable)

Founder’s Exclusive Wallpaper*
Founder’s Exclusive Structure
Legendary Rapport Gift Selection Chest
Launch Limited Card Pack
*If the Founder’s Title or Founder’s Exclusive Wallpaper are used on the same Roster where a pack has already been redeemed, you will not be able to use these items.

Please note that this is a one-time grant, and we do not have plans to continue to make additional grants of items available to players in the future. For example, there will be Starter Packs available for purchase at full launch tomorrow (more details to come), and we highly recommend only redeeming them once you settle into your permanent home server.
