What on game-maps.com in 2018
January 11, 2018
To finish the 2017 year, I need to finish the maps for ELEX. I am on the right track to finish it soon.
The year 2018 promises to be quite good in terms of video games. Not all my plans will be implemented, but I will choose what will be the most interesting to make new guides and maps.
This is what I expect in 2018:
Ashes of Creation
- Game genre and platforms: MMORPG (with an emphasis on shaping the world) for PC
- Official release date: 2020, but permanent and constantly working game world should be ready late 2018
- My guess release date: I hope for a playable version of Alpha at the end of 2018
- My expectations: I am very very positive about this game.
- What on game-maps.com: I would like to make a full description of this game for both beginners and advanced players, with maps of permanent world if it will be possible. This is a project for several years.
- More info: http://game-maps.com/AoC/Ashes-of-Creation-Game-Guide.asp
Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen
- Game genre and platforms: Clasic hard-core style MMORPG in a modern version for PC
- Official release date: Q2 2018
- My guess release date: I expect that with a bit of luck playable version will be available at the end of 2018, it seems more likely 2019
- My expectations: I really believe in the return of the classic MMORPG, it will not be as popular as WoW, but I am counting on great fun.
- What on game-maps.com: Maps, game guides and some lore.
- More info: https://pantheonmmo.com/
Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
- Game genre and platforms: single player RPG, PC (Windows, Linux) and Macintosh
- Official release date: 2018
- My guess release date: It should be on time, end of the year.
- My expectations: Quite large, solid RPG game in a vast world and story.
- What on game-maps.com: Complete game guide with maps
- More info: https://eternity.obsidian.net/
- Game genre and platforms: Single player RPG, action dungeon crawler for PC (Windows and Linux)
- Official release date: End of 2018
- My guess release date: I am not sure they will be able to finish it this year, but let's be in good spirits
- My expectations: Medium to large. It is the grandson of Ultima Underworld, my favorite game from old times
- What on game-maps.com: Complete map of the underground
- More info: https://www.underworldascendant.com/
The Bard's Tale IV
- Game genre and platforms: Single player RPG, action dungeon crawler for PC
- Official release date: End of 2018
- My guess release date: They have been working on this game for some time, late 2018 seems like a good approximation
- My expectations: Medium to high
- What on game-maps.com: I would love to make maps for this game because I feel great sentiment towards the precursor.
- More info: https://bardstale.inxile-entertainment.com/
Kingdom Come: Deliverance
- Game genre and platforms: Single player action RPG for PC, PS4, XONE
- Official release date: Q1 2018
- My guess release date: It should be on time.
- My expectations: Moderate. After a short session in the beta, I admit that the game looks nice, but I have big concerns about the excessive realism of the game. I will give her a second chance.
- What on game-maps.com: World map and maybe some tips.
- More info: https://www.kingdomcomerpg.com/
Wild West Online
- Game genre and platforms: Wild West-themed action MMO for PC
- Official release date: late 2018
- My guess release date: I hope it will be ready in 2018 but it is not for sure, now its playable Alpha.
- My expectations: Moderate. I played a moment, the game has potential, it's pretty, but the amount of work to do to make it a good MMO is gigantic. I will be watching the progress in the work on this game.
- What on game-maps.com: Maps and small game guide.
- More info: https://www.playwwo.com/
- Game genre and platforms: Civilization Building Sci-Fi MMORPG for PC
- Official release date: 2018
- My guess release date: We will see ...
- My expectations: Unspecified, it can be a very nice game, it can be a poor game, or it will not finish it at all
- What on game-maps.com: Some guides.
- More info: http://www.dualthegame.com/en/
- Game genre and platforms: MMORPG for PC (like classic Dark Age of Camelot)
- Official release date: Unknown
- My guess release date: I bet on the premiere of a playable version in 2018, if they do not keep it, no one will remember this game anymore
- My expectations: High, nice grand scale PvP experience
- What on game-maps.com: guides and tips
- More info: http://camelotunchained.com/v3/
The other games I'm interested in in 2018:
- Revelation Online
- Ascent: Infinite Realm (A:IR)
- Maybe I will play also World of Warcraft Classic if it appears in 2008.
What should 2018 bring and what it will not bring:
- World of Warcraft 2 - this game is not real, and let them be damned for it
- Dragon Age 4 - this game is real, but we should not expect it before the end of 2019 (yeah!)
- The Elder Scrolls VI - it will be a long waiting
- Cyberpunk 2077 - do not expect this game sooner than at the end of 2019, but it will be a fun game.

Old game maps drawn from my file backup
July 12, 2017
Today there will be the message from a time machine and more specifically from my old file backups.
First of all, I discovered that I made a lot of over 1000 game maps in my life. Secondly, something nostalgically grabbed my throat at the thought that computer games over a dozen years ago were so cool.
A little reminiscence at My Old Game Maps.

Sword Coast Legends Mini Game Guide

Sword Coast Legends Mini Game Guide
This is a small tutorial, game guide for the video game Sword Coast Legends focusing on issues of character creation our heroes. Compiled information on Character Classes, Character Races, Heroes Background Stories and accompanying bonuses, Character Attributes, Alignments and available Deities.
Dear friends and gamers
Friday, July 31, 2015
I am very grateful for all the emails with appreciation you have sent to game-maps.com.
When writing every game walkthrough on this site and creating every single map, I did so with great pleasure and satisfaction.
I am very happy to be able to accompany you on your adventures through the maps and guides I prepare.
But there is one thing I must clarify. Game-maps.com is a website I run alone, outside of working hours. You have to remember I am simultaneously working full time on other websites and have a lovely wife and two daughters.
Therefore, after coming home from work and spending some time with my family, very little time remains to cover every detail of such extensive games like The Witcher of Pillars of Eternity.
I do what I can to complete each and every guide I have started, but when deciding which one should have priority I track your activity on the website.
Your interests are the key factor upon which I determine which guide should proceed to describing advanced stages of the game.
When a guide for game's early stages is very popular and later I see a decline in your interests as the story progresses, I assume I can leave the maps temporarily unfinished because most of you found the game easier than expected or you adapt faster than expected.
I am sorry that the guides to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Pillars of Eternity have yet to be finished. I casually assumed you will be all right on your own for a while.
However, since I have received so many emails asking for help with the abovementioned games, your friend Longwinter won't leave you at the mercy of monsters.
I also happen to be a co-owner of gamepressure.com and that's where you can find detailed walkthroughs for those games.
There may not be as good as the ones made by me, but they are good nevertheless :)
In the future, I plan to take a look at Sword Coast Legends, after it comes out on September 8, 2015. If you let me know a walkthrough is needed, I can prepare one in September, maybe October.
November and the rest of 2015 will, of course, be dedicated to Fallout 4 and I'm already gathering the materials needed to prepare a good walkthrough and maps.
Good luck guys.
