Wednesday Gaming – Volunteer Controversy, Dreamlight Valley Access, and MORE!

Catch up on the latest news, rumours and announcements from the world of video games, tech and entertainment:

– Video game and software developer, Fntastic, has come under fire for not paying volunteers who are helping to work on its upcoming game, “The Day Before”, an open-world MMO which also happens to be on Steam’s list of most-wishlisted games.

– Disney’s “Animal Crossing”-like game, “Dreamlight Valley”, is scheduled for early access on 6 September 2022. This free-to-play farm simulator will be available to play on Steam, Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch.

– According to a trailer for “Dreamlight Valley”, you create your own character from scratch, help the valley’s most famous Disney/Pixar residents – including Mickey Mouse, Goofy, WALL-E, Scar and more! – recover their lost memories, and restore the shadowed valley’s glory.

– Yet another battle royale game is being discontinued: “Spellbreak”, a free-to-play, fantasy-inspired title that was released in 2020, will shut down in early 2023.

– Although developer Proletariat has yet to disclose the reason why they’re shutting down “Spellbreak”, it’s believed that declining player numbers and poor financial success have contributed to this decision.
