How to create and where to find Leather in V Rising

Leather is used in V Rising to create better items, and significantly stronger armor, among other uses. The Leather crafting process is simple, but first, you’ll need to eliminate a boss and then build a Tannery to produce the resource.

Where to find the Leather recipe in V Rising?
You must already have the Altar of Blood built in your castle to get the recipe. Use it to track Keely the Frost Archer or find the big boss on the V Rising Interactive Map.
After defeating the level 20 boss, you will have access to two things needed to craft Leather. The first is the Tannery, the structure that will produce the item. The second is the Leather recipe itself.

How to make Leather in V Rising?
Now that you already have how to make the Tannery and the recipe, it’s time to make Leather. If you haven’t created it yet, know that the Tannery needs 8 Planks and 160 Animal Skins to build.
The Animal Skin farm has to continue to create Leather, and this item is also needed. Every 16 Animal Skins make 1 Leather.
You can place the Tanneries in a delimited room in the castle to increase the creation speed of the Leather. If you have an entire floor with just tailoring buildings, the cost of Animal Skins will be reduced.

Crossfire Legion Reviews – Real-time strategy like before?

Rock & roll What sounds like a mission from Call of Duty is the start of the Crossfire: Legion campaign and shows in just a few words what you can expect from this real-time strategy game: a lot of action, a lot of oomph, and not quite as many brains.

As colleague Peter pointed out in his preview, Crossfire is not just any brand. The multiplayer shooter of the same name released in South Korea has been highly successful since 2007. Nevertheless, the series is not very well known in the West – but this may also be due to the 0815 setting.

Anyway, what makes Crossfire: Legion exciting isn’t the scenario – but the fact that it’s finally a real-time strategy game with a single-player campaign again. We found out for you how good it is in the test of the Early Access version.

It suits you if…
You like classic real-time strategy games.
You’re looking for something like Starcraft but easy to understand.
You like to see a lot of things explode.

It doesn’t suit you if…
I am already playing Starcraft.
You expect a thrilling story from the single-player campaign.
You have an aversion to in-game shops.

Hooray, hooray, the mercenaries are here.
Crossfire: Legion is firmly based on Starcraft, even if the setting is more reminiscent of Command and Conquer. This means that you don’t slowly build up an economy and a base like in Age of Empires, but only have seven or eight different buildings, two resources, and little time before things get down to business.

The game is divided into three areas, the campaign, skirmish, a co-op mode, and multiplayer, which is to become the heart of the game. As you can already guess from the introduction, the campaign is characterized by the typical US military hooray, which seems outdated.

Shortly, it is about the mercenary group’s Black List (the good guys who act out of charity) and Global Risk (the bad guys who like to lock people up) known from the Crossfire template.

But in the end, it’s all too reminiscent of American cliche shooters where good muscle-bound Americans with lots of guns save the world from evil muscle-bound Americans with lots of guns. Add a pinch of youthful coolness to the experienced leaders of the world’s most influential organizations, and the box of clichés is almost plundered.

The urge for action is expressed playfully in entertaining missions, in the course of which we shoot our way through a futuristic city and blow up a bunker on a snow-covered mountain. You usually command small and medium-sized combat units or sneak across the map with a single hero unit. After the first two missions, you can then set up your base – and then you have to wait for more content in the course of Early Access. So far, only the first four missions are playable.

A pinch of Starcraft or, even better, two!
So if you’ve played the Starcraft 2 and Extra Story campaigns centered around the Ghost Nova, you’ll be familiar with Crossfire: Legion’s mission management style, as the requirements alternate in a similar way, as does the pacing. Also, the similarities don’t end there. The map design, resource depletion, building, and unit management are also partially the same down to the last detail.

The two resources of fuel and material, for example, can only be accessed at specified locations with another command center, where small worker drones then travel back and forth between the center and the resource field. This is a one-to-one system from Starcraft.

The cards are also predefined, the resources are arranged symmetrically, and the base locations are always in the same places. The starting base has a narrow ramp to the rest of the map for better defense.

With the raw materials, you build supply depots that increase the population limit and barracks, tank factories, and hangars to train infantry, artillery, and aircraft. There are also defensive towers and an arsenal where you can research upgrades.

Control groups forward, another.
You are speaking of upgrades. Some units have abilities, some of which are only unlocked through further development. These can be poison bombs, energy shields, EMPs, or jump attacks. So, if you want to compete in multiplayer, you’ll need to use the keyboard and control panels to get the most out of the troops.

In general, understanding the units helps, whether against the AI ​​or human players. For example, the Titan (Starcraft’s Thor counterpart) has a potent but prolonged attack, suboptimal against a horde of infantry.

The missions are well done, and Crossfire: Legion is fun. However, the game can never keep up with the great Starcraft in staging, mission design, and storytelling.

Terran, Protoss and… more Terran
What we have kept secret so far: Like Starcraft, Crossfire: has three factions, at least two of which seem to be heavily inspired by Starcraft. They have tanks that can go into a static siege mode, while their infantry can give themselves short-term increased movement and rate of fire for a slight loss of health (save the Navy). The evil Global Risk is Terrans.

The third tech group newly introduced in the universe, the New Horizon, takes on the role of the Protoss. Your first infantry unit has two electric blades, plunge into melee combat and get a charged upgrade to get to the enemy faster. In addition to their life bar, your units and buildings also have shields that regenerate outside of combat.

Only the third faction, the Black List, is not directly related to the Zerg. It tends to be characterized by lighter units than Global Risk and is thoroughly average.

Alternate units are the way to balance hell.
The commanders bring a little variety. Depending on which leader you choose for a game, you have two other special abilities. With one, you can heal troops or make them run faster, and the other has a powerful bombardment up your sleeve. Killed or lost units charge the energy for this.

Before an average skirmish or multiplayer game, you can decide which commander you want to use. The same also applies to the units! Crossfire: Legion comes with a deck system, which means you can choose an alternate unit for each unit of each faction. For example, Global Risk can swap out its marines, pardon me, soldiers for shield soldiers, which are slower but can take a lot more.

We can’t comment on multiplayer balance at this point. Still, as seasoned RTS players, we’re confident that while this system might be excellent for gameplay variety, it will be pure balance hell for competitive play.

No, no, no, an in-game shop also had to go in.
And the bad part is yet to come: You have to buy the alternative troops with an in-game currency. You can also earn them, but you are faster with real money. While the devs said matchmaking would take your unit progression into account, we’re skeptical. In a competitive real-time strategy game, an in-game shop that provides access to other units is generally not a good idea.

Apart from this monetization concept, multiplayer offers a lot of entertainment. The sound design, in particular, is compelling, for example, when tanks explode, or helicopters are shot down. It’s fun to flatten your opponent’s base. We can still forgive minor problems finding the way concerning the Early Access status, just like some animations that seem a bit stiff.

So in that sense, Crossfire: Legion is a solid game, no question about it. But in addition to the questionable in-game shop, the title from Canada has a big problem that even Early Access will not be able to solve: Crossfire: Legion has positioned itself so close to Starcraft that it is now entirely overshadowed by it.

Preliminary scoring box

categoryPros and consrating
presentation+ great sound design
+ explosions are impressive.
+ high-quality cutscenes in the campaign
+ nice play of light
– partially stiff animations
game design+ Alternative units can increase replay value and variety.
+ Games are short and the action sets in quickly …
– … but this is sometimes chaotic due to model sizes and bottlenecks.
– The three peoples hardly differ in the basic play style.
? Will there be any more content or will existing content be adapted?
balance+ Even cheap units have their place.
+ Symmetrical/mirrored cards ensure equal opportunities.
– Alternative units will hardly be perfectly balanced.
? Will the balance pass the multiplayer endurance test?
? Are Commander abilities not getting too powerful or useless?
Story/Atmosphere+ Looks plus sound and action exude call-of-duty atmosphere.
– Setting maximally bland (mercenary groups will rule the world in the future)
– Story full of teenage military cheers
– Look of the units and buildings is a bit too clean.
? How does the story continue?
Scope+ campaign and additional game modes (co-op against the AI, payload mode)
+ three factions with very different units
– very few buildings
? What game modes are coming?
? How long do the remaining eleven missions keep you busy?
rating bias65 to 75

Both factors don’t make Crossfire: Legion easy in my hands. Because while it’s undoubtedly a competent game at this stage, I can see little reason anyone would choose this title over Starcraft 2. Blizzard’s RTS king is simply superior in every respect and is now even free except for the campaigns. The only reason I can think of would be that Crossfire: could serve as a genre entry point because overall, it’s less extensive and, therefore, more manageable.

But then there is also the unspeakable in-game shop. The developers can offer single-player content or pure cosmetics in their shop. But other units for multiplayer that you have to earn without additional money first? That’s a pretty stupid idea, in my opinion.

The future video game in 5 elements

The summer is approaching, and with that, the new gameplay trailers season, but also the potential announcement of a new technological gap between what we’ve been able to play during the last 5 years and what we will play In the near future, from 2023. Why? We will explain all this in 5 key points.


The following text is a retranscription of the video above

The advent of the Unreal Engine and Unity

You have probably seen the recent techniques of Unity engines or Unreal Engine. If this is not new that the engines broadcast this kind of videos to make their promo, this year there is a real paradigm shift in the industry. For reminder, a game engine, it is a set of tool, creation, viewing, and compilation, which allows you to model elements, to put them to end, to write rules that govern The world we are going to play. This is the base of the video game, and since the dawn of time, the big productions are divided into two categories in their choice of engine. On one side there are boxes that work years, inject millions of dollars internally to create a owner engine. Their creation, carved for their uses, allowing the maximum of the team know-how. Most of the time, it’s the big companies that use this method. This allows some advantages but also some disadvantages. The main disadvantage, lies in the fact that the evolution of the engine over the years can lead to exorbitant costs, but also which can quickly be obsolete.

In parallel, there are also a little more modest boxes that use Common Engines . For example, Unreal Engine or Unity, whose benefits are numerous. Go through this kind of software allows a much cheaper cost because licenses are free. Go through a common and well-known engine suggests some disadvantages, including the fact that Unreal Engine games tend to look like themselves in their feeling and rendering. But it will soon be an old story. Because since Fortnite’s explosion, Epic Games, which has the Free-To-Play and the Unreal Engine engine, put the double bites to make its engine a Cador, followed by both good innovation and technology on the competitor Unity. The latest version of the Unreal Engine engine, the 5th, redefines a lot of key elements: lighting, character models and their calculation, the display distance and how it is managed, the definition of the Open World and or their structure.

The result of all this innovation, driven by a third-party box, lies in the fact that engines between “common” quotation marks have exploded in recent years, especially the Unreal Engine which has become a lot of democratized. These tools are now much more open, free, widespread, have shared, free or paid elements library, and cherry on the cake is that the teams now work hand in hand with studios. These include what is happening on the next game The Witcher, which will be developed on Unreal Engine 5. Clearly, if you sign with Epic, you have the engine, customized for your needs, and you even have EPIC engineers who help you during development. Companies are on any other strategy, where the owner engines were practical because he maintained internally and cut by the studios, the common engines are now the stars. The owner engines, it’s expensive, it’s heavy, it’s complicated to recruit and train on it, and it gets older. It’s a method that tends to disappear everywhere. With this small revolution in the middle of the engines, firms like Epic or Unity will grow and become more important. If it does not seem incredible saying like this, the direct consequence for us, players is that games and blockbusters are growing more and more relieving costs. R & D (Research and Development), will be revised downward, since it will be largely outsourced, allowing the teams to focus more on the gameplay and innovation.

10 REALISTIC Unreal Engine 5 Demos Show Future of Graphics [4K]
So what would happen to bring? All the images you will see in the video above will be standardized, centralized, and the differences in rendering quality depending on the firms that produce games should be smaller. But that’s not all, because the year 2023 will undergo major changes, including the end of the cross-gen and normalization of SSD as storage support.

SSD as standard, finally!

2023 is then the end of Crossgen . Finished the games developed to work on PS4 and One, machines that will soon celebrate their 10th anniversary. The 9th generation of consoles, with the PS5 and Xbox Series will therefore be the main generation and the new games will be before all developed for these machines. Xbox had announced supporting the Xbox One for 2 years following the output of the Xbox Series, And on his side PlayStation marked his 2023 games as PS5 excluded. This is where the real future of New Gen will play, which we still tend to call wrongly, the Next-Gen.

The end of this era looks like a real technological renewal, and with that, the normalization of the SSD as standardized storage medium. What does it mean concretely? This means that all games, PCs like console, will benefit from this ultra fast storage architecture that transforms how we are going to build our games. More vast levels, more cache allocated to the loading of areas, productions that will be de facto lighter because we will finally stop duplicating the elements so that they are on a multitude of parts of the disc, since with SSD, we can go pick them directly. We will gain room, gain space, gain fluency, and have been backing for the first time for a very long time the way to approach the development of games. PCs will have to follow, it is certain, and already we see a packet of recommended configurations that advise SSD, before they are imposed when the 2023 multiplatform games will make their appearances.

This is not overinterpretation to say that it will be a revolution, and if the Covid crisis and the breaks of stock have hurt this idea, we can easily think that this time is the maid. But if this point specifically relates to native games, which turn on your PC or console, the future from 2023 will also emerge around cloud games.

the cloud repairs its false start

Now let’s talk about Cloud Gaming, the dematerialized game that is running remotely on a wide variety of game terminals: connected TV, consoles, PC, browser, mobile and tablet. This sector is at the moment on a feature: the possibility of playing remotely to your games or at a game catalog. This is what Xbox, Nintendo, Steam and PlayStation, on a variable scale, but already, we already offer Seeing the best practices, uses that work well and become popular. What works, in addition to remote access , it is the access in the form of test , in order to decide if this or that catalog game deserves its installation on your console. This is what Xbox is doing with its GamePass subscription service.

On the PlayStation side, Japanese society also puts double bites recently with the integration of PS now, service formerly except, directly within the PlayStation Plus offer. The cloud will be democratized from mid-2022, and touch more and more people. And it helps to gradually remove the brakes that can be seen in the public. Typically Style Questions: “Yes, but I’m not going to get started, my connection will hold” or “I’m afraid the LAG or video compression spoil me immersion”. The more people can rub without disbursement, plus gaming cloud will become democratized.

At Nintendo, the small Japanese craftsman will spread more and more on the cloud gaming, facing the technical and technological weaknesses of the Switch , and some analysts assume very clearly that the switch will have in a few months a small Sister, the Switch Pro, the switch 2, call it as you want as long as it is announced on Tuesday at 15h. If more powerful machine There is, Nintendo can then avoid breaking its generation by offering future cloud games for basic switch, and native about this potential more powerful switch. This is a simple theory, but it would allow the switch to keep a few more years by keeping its installed console park : it is totally in the interest of Nintendo. There is only to treat the dematerialized infrastructure so that the first generation Switch owners are not injured…

But the cloud is also the opportunity to arrive directly in Ready Player One, with ubiquitous games in our life, games thought for the cloud. We call it “cloud native” games.

the “native cloud” in ambush

We have seen it, the cloud will be more present than ever in 2023 , but not just to run classic games… There are also outstanding game projects that are in the pipes. It is here a promise that had attempted to hold Google with Stadia Games , its network of studios whose purpose was to make any room of the big projects dedicated to Google’s cloud. This has been settled by a general fiasco, the studios closed, but the promise was very enticing. Imagine that a mmorpg can be cloud accessible, and that it offers us different gameplay depending on the situation in which you are. If you are in your living room or at your desk, you have all the premium experience of a big mmorpg, and if you are traveling or in transport, you can unsail your phone, connect to the game. And there, the Game knows that you are traveling, it has planned it, and offers you to play game subsystems to make your craft, your craft, your daily quests, or manage your guild.

We can then easily imagine whole components of the MMO experience totally dedicated to a touch gameplay on a small connection and on a small screen. This would allow the studios to capitalize on even greater playing time of the players, and therefore on an increased commitment. If Google did not miss his shot with Stadia Games, figure that Microsoft announced in March 2022 the creation of a division dedicated to native cloud games. Games thought for the cloud, which will turn there, and will therefore benefit from the multitude of possible devices and situations. And in the idea of a multi-situation mmo, there is a good chance that it happens in one form or in another, within a few years, with potentially a teasing from this summer or the next summer of These future projects. If everything becomes so ambitious at once for big projects, we must not forget the Inde game, which will also live a small boom in the coming months.

The second boom of the Inde Game

It is often said that big games put in practice already experienced ideas about indeven games… and it’s totally true. Tons of mechanics are first tested by intrepid minds that innovate and who have only to have a huge sales goals. A little in the manner of the author’s films but reported to the game Video, independent studios advance the industry through their total freedom of action. But the concern is that developing a game is expensive and very complicated when we are in a small team. But with all that we have seen on the engines that democratize, there is a hope that born: that of having more and more games coming from all small structures. This is not a simple dream, indeed, create a game has become affordable for everyone . Common engines are free, stained with tutorials in all languages accessible everywhere on the net and on YouTube. There are fantastic tools for sharing assets, scripts, codes, models, and with the new battlegrounds of Unreal, previously unryplained things will become accessible. Create massively multiplayer games, create Open World, all this will become much more prevalent in the indeed sphere.

And finally, Programs dedicated to the indeed, that this is at Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft, have all proven their effectiveness side efficiency, and highlighting them through the game pass for example, for event outputs Accessible Day One by millions of players, allow small structures to survive. Until then, the game Indie at PC output or console was a bit complicated, and just see the Indiepocalypse of years 2010 to understand that being indeed does not always pay. In reality, it was then a miracle to be profitable, and it took up more than one Russian roulette. Today things have changed, fortunately, and there are many more vectors of popularity to exist: for example Twitter and the hashtag Gamedev, on which indees promote the follow-up of their development, or Tiktok which more and more allows small ones to make a name. We are therefore facing a favorable conjuncture for the emergence of new bold projects, which will be an audience.

The question is… How many studio will apply this technological level correctly in their games? Because we can say, a game that holds you in breath more than 10am for the main story it’s rare, not to mention that some put the package at the beginning of the game and more.
Will the studios finally take risks?
