Bloodstained UE4 Code Clarification

We announced via the Bloodstained Kickstarter page that we would be releasing the code for our UE4 WiiU/Vita modifications.

We didn’t provide very many details, and there’s been some confusion, so we just wanted to clear a few things up.

What we are planning to do is share the WiiU and Vita modifications to UE4 for Bloodstained after the game ships with authorized developers for the respective platforms (and we’re not sure how we’ll deliver the code, it’s a bit complicated because of all the parties involved).

Neither us nor Epic will be providing any support for this code. What developers will get will be a snapshot of the platform-specific code that ships with Bloodstained on the version of UE4 that Bloodstained ships with. Nobody will be keeping the code up-to-date with newer versions of UE4.

We are not planning to take external contributions from individuals, do any co-development, or release the code prior to Bloodstained’s release.

Our intent is to give people a great jumping-off point on those platforms. We hope this clears things up, and we’re excited to provide more specifics as we have them!

Armature goes goth!

Armature is teaming up with Koji Igarashi of Castlevania fame on his latest project, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night! We are super excited to be porting this latest game in the Igavania vein onto WiiU! If gothic, exploration-focused action platformers are your thing, you’re going to love this! Bloodstained is being funded via Kickstarter – so head on over there and help a ghoul out!


Borderlands: The Handsome Collection gets even handsomer!

Armature Studio has been working with Gearbox and publisher 2K to bring the world the definitive Borderlands collection, and it’s quite handsome! The collection includes Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, both updated for highest performance and highest fidelity graphics on next-gen consoles, and includes a four player split screen option! This package was great fun to work on, and the subsequent updates and patches from Armature have gained some great reviews for upgrading games performance, with Eurogamer raving “It’s not often that a patch arrives that truly provides a game-changing experience.” With reviews like this, Armature is quickly gaining a reputation as “The Best Little Port House in Texas”!

WBID Verification Email Workaround

It appears that many of you are enjoying Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition, but are having trouble getting WBID verification emails on PS3 and PC. Logging in to WBID will get you the Zero Year batsuit.

While a fix is being prepared, we have a workaround for one of the WBID failure cases. This workaround is only if you have successfully created a new WBID, are awaiting the verification email, and are told, when logging in, that you have logged in but need the verification to succeed.

If the above describes your situation, please go here:

Log in with your WBID and create a community account. This will trigger the verification email to be sent to you. After you click the verification link, you’ll be able to log into your WBID account from within the game, and unlock the Zero Year batsuit.

Thanks for playing!
