You can play private matches in Crucible until it’s gone for good on November 9th

Amazon's bang bang 'em up FPS Crucible has certainly been through—well a crucible, I suppose, though it hasn't emerged stronger and reformed. After a messy launch and retreating back to closed beta, Amazon Game Studios announced that the game wouldn't be making a return. As a last hurrah, Crucible has given players the ability to host private matches now that the matchmaking queue is shut…

Amazon’s Crucible won’t be coming back

So long, Crucible. Amazon's free-to-play shooter hasn't had the easiest ride, greeted by a release so underwhelming developers Relentless Studios chose to take it back to the shop for a bit of a tune-up. Three months later, the devs have decided that Crucible may just be beyond salvaging. Development on the beleaguered shooter has ceased, with servers set to shut off over the next few…

Amazon’s Crucible retreating back into closed beta

Less than six weeks after launching Crucible, Amazon are taking their free-to-play multiplayer shooter back into closed beta. It was not well-received or well-played, and last weekend didn't even break 200 players in-game at the same time. So they're taking it back into beta to fix and improve, then presumably relaunch later. Those player numbers are honestly not uncommon for a new multiplayer shooter, because…

Crucible ditches two modes, delays its first season indefinitely

It's been a tough ol' time for Crucible. Following a somewhat messy launch, the Amazon-backed hero shooter this week announced it'll be shedding two of its three modes - ditching battle royale and territory control gametypes to focus on being a bit more MOBA, while delaying its first competitive season indefinitely to give the beleaguered beast some much-needed polish.

Feature: Trial by dire

Crucible review

I like some parts of Crucible, but the guns don't feel good. That's a deathblow to any hero shooter, even one that's been mashed into a MOBA, and I can't move past it. Great character design, sumptuous alien environments, and a handful of interesting ideas have all been squandered by the way firing hot lead feels like tossing soft mints.That's galling. More galling still is…

Amazon’s Crucible launched with some pretty essential features missing

Let's talk about Crucible's launch. Amazon's hero shooter landed on Steam earlier this week, and honestly? It was a bit of a mess. In fairness, a lot of brand new online games face similar issues to what the new third person sci-fi shooter did, with matchmaking and connectivity issues plaguing players as they tried to play their first matches. And though these are fixed now,…

Amazon’s free-to-play shooter Crucible is out today

Amazon's first big PC game has arrived, and it's inviting you to an alien planet to harvest its resources and take out enemy teams. It's called Crucible and it's a third person sci-fi shooter with some MOBA elements thrown in for good measure. Each game has you play as one of 10 Hunters, each with their own unique play styles and abilities, and you'll need…

Amazon’s Crucible is a refreshing take on the hero shooter

It was only a matter of time before Amazon properly jumped into the gaming space, and here we are with their very own multiplayer hero shooter coming out tomorrow. Developed by Amazon's Relentless Studios, Crucible is a new free-to-play third-person shooter. I'll be the first to admit that those words put me off at first, it's not easy for these sorts of games to stand…

Amazon’s multiplayer shooter Crucible launching May 20th

Amazon Game Studios today announced a May 20th release date for Crucible, their free-to-play multiplayer shooter where two teams compete while battling big monsters. Players get to pick from characters with different abilities, hunt monsters, level up... it's got a lot of familiar-sounding bits from other multiplayer PvE and PvP and PvEvP games, and I'm curious. Seeing as it'll be F2P, yeah, I'll give it…
