In addition to a 10% discount, people who preorder will also receive 2 brand new resource packs free:
The Cover Art Characters Pack
For the first time in RPG Maker history, an official set of resources featuring RPG Maker MV cover art characters is available! Featuring a brand new main party and brimming with bonus material, this pack includes the essentials to build the perfect character party.
The Essentials Add-On
From expertly-composed original music to clever tileset add-ons and emotion-packed character facesets, this pack includes material that enhances the standard RPG Maker MV resources and really lets your projects shine.
The last RPG Maker was a great toolset that I personally tried a few times. If you ever wanted to create your own RPG it is hard to find a better toolset to learn from.

The Official Call of Duty: Black Ops III – Story Trailer Revealed

The official Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 story trailer has been released. This time the story centers around the merging soldiers, and military technology. It has almost a mystery style element to it, as you travel across the globe to track down evidence of military technology being sold to enemies in the new Cold War.
I’m sure a lot more is left to this story, but one thing is certain – Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players are going to miss out on the campaign. Find out more about that by clicking HERE.

Rainbow Six Siege Drops Single Player Campaign

Excited for Rainbow Six Siege? Like multi-player? Great! The latest entry in the Rainbow Six franchise will not have a single player campaign! Wait, you really enjoyed the single player campaign in the past games? Well, I guess Ubisoft doesn’t think most care about a single player campaign.
While speaking at EGX 2015, Scott Mitchell who is the Art Director for the game stated “There is no story mode per se. You go through training, where you get to experience different operators and their devices. You can play against enemy AI in co-op through all the maps. You can customize matches, so that’s what we’re offering on the single-player side of things.”
He continued by adding “It’s a pretty good training ground, and on top or that you’re unlocking the same content as you would playing in PvP. You’re still gaining stars, renown points, and new operatives”
Rainbow Six Siege will be releasing up to 11 maps to download over time. Yet, no single player campaign may keep long time fans away from this title. Dropping single player campaigns has been a growing trend in the Triple-A FPS genre for a bit now. Games like Evolve, and Titanfall have no single player component other than a training stage. Yesterday it was revealed that the last gen console versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will not contain a single player campaign at all. Read more about that HERE.
Rainbow Six Siege is set to release in North America December 1st. So, do you mind not having a single player campaign? Let me know in the comments.
