    According to a leaked internal e-mail obtained by Kotaku, publishing giant EA are making around 350 employees redundant in their marketing and publishing departments. The news was relayed by CEO Andrew Wilson who noted that the publisher want to be the "World's greatest Games Company" but that they're "not there right now", before announcing that their marketing and publishing departments would be consolidated. The news was later confirmed by EA in a statement to Kotaku:

     

    "Today we took some important steps as a company to address our challenges and prepare for the opportunities ahead. As we look across a changing world around us, it’s clear that we must change with it. We’re making deliberate moves to better deliver on our commitments, refine our organization and meet the needs of our players. As part of this, we have made changes to our marketing and publishing organization, our operations teams, and we are ramping down our current presence in Japan and Russia as we focus on different ways to serve our players in those markets. In addition to organizational changes, we are deeply focused on increasing quality in our games and services. Great games will continue to be at the core of everything we do, and we are thinking differently about how to amaze and inspire our players.

    This is a difficult day. The changes we’re making today will impact about 350 roles in our 9,000-person company. These are important but very hard decisions, and we do not take them lightly. We are friends and colleagues at EA, we appreciate and value everyone’s contributions, and we are doing everything we can to ensure we are looking after our people to help them through this period to find their next opportunity. This is our top priority.”

     

    The redundancies come during a particularly turbulent year in the gaming industry, with layoffs at other big industry publishers such as Activision.

    View the release trailer below:


    Here is an overview of the game:

    Bow to Blood: Last Captain Standing is a single-player action-strategy roguelike in which you’ll oversee a flying airship in a multi-stage competition being broadcast as a deadly reality TV show. You’ll have to use keep your wits about you, as you manage your ragtag crew to keep your vessel afloat, fend off incoming attackers, gather resources, and search for treasure. Like any good reality show, forging temporary alliances is the name of the game, as players team up with NPCs to conspire against the most dominant threats. Just be aware that there’s little honor among sky pirates and only one captain will be crowned victorious.

    Bow to Blood: Last Captain Standing also features a Ready Player One inspired community event wherein the first player to uncover a secret treasure will be immortalized forever in the game. Will you be the first to uncover this long lost treasure?

    The original Bow to Blood launched as a PlayStation VR exclusive in August 2018, where it received rave reviews from Upload VR, DarkStation, and Push Square, and this newly christened multiplatform release adds a slew of new content. This update drastically enhances the game with an all new Hard Difficulty setting, more enemy ships, and improved art making airship destruction more eye popping than ever. Those with the PlayStation VR game will receive all the new content, along with the option to play outside of VR, for free. PC players will be happy to know that the Last Captain Standing release will offer Oculus Rift and HTC Vive support for the full immersive experience.

    Key Features:

    • Take command – Stand at the bridge of your mighty airship, with immersive high-tech controls that respond to your touch as you pilot the ship, task your crew, aim weapons, route power – and even pull your trusty sidearm when things get up close and personal.
    • Forge alliances and plot betrayals – At the end of each match you’ll need enough friends to avoid getting voted off the season! Your AI rivals in Bow to Blood have their own motivations, objectives, and personalities. Assist your fellow challengers and gain their support, or exploit them for personal gain and earn their enmity. The choice is yours, but choose wisely – challengers will remember how you have treated them, and in the Arena, grudges die hard.
    • Every playthrough is unique – Randomized encounters and a rotating cast ensure no two experiences will be the same. Play over and over again to discover new environments, opponents, and challenges.
