COBALT Launches February 2!

cobalt_titledHeroArt

Cobalt is coming to Steam, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 on February 2! The game will cost $19.99, and comes with a single-player story campaign, challenge maps, co-op survival maps, and several multiplayer game modes for both local and online play.

Check out the full release post in the Mojang blog!

If you’ve pre-purchased the alpha you will get a Steam code added to your Mojang account. We will only release the Windows version now, so Mac and Linux users will have to wait just a little bit longer. This is because we switched game engines (from DaisyMoon to Stingray) in order to add online multiplayer.

Xbox controllers in v125

Hello!

This is a quick update to the state of “more than four xbox controllers in cobalt”.

Due to the comments on the last post, I realized the fix was rather trivial.

In v125 all xbox controllers after the forth will instead be added as direct input devices. This means they will be slightly less featured, lacking force feedback and worse analog trigger support. But it will work:

Cobalt-150505-00

I tried this with 4 wired xbox 360 controllers, and 1 wireless xbox 360 controllers using a usb-dongle receiver.

This week in Cobalt #5

We’re back in action!
Hello everyone! Enjoying the new year?

Cobalt visits Trunkopia
After 45 years in space, Cobalt has finally reached its destination… Time to go around visiting places and taking pictures of emblematic alien stuff!
Oh, a mission you say? I guess Cobalt can do all at the same time!
I wonder what those things looked like when they were alive…
Cobalt’s first touristic stop are some caves in one of the coldest areas of Trunkopia, where one can admire vestiges of an ancient age.
Who might he be?
Just arrived and someone’s already talking about the mission!
Cobalt can’t enjoy a bit of touristic sightseeing without being annoyed right away, clearly.
It appears Cobalt was being awaited… some unclear business seems to be happening around the old Trunkopolis human colony, so Cobalt’s personal affairs need to wait.
Cobalt meets some robotic locals
Apparently they don’t seem to enjoy Cobalt’s visit, which is a shame. Maybe they would have been able to show Cobalt around.
The non-robotic locals seem to be a bit nicer
After leaving Trunkopia’s snowy region, Cobalt arrives to a somewhat crowded Mycelian town. In the picture Cobalt can be seen posing next to a famous museum.
However it seems that the locals are having some trouble as well… will Cobalt ever be able to relax for a bit?
Inside the old base and the caves
After leaving the town, Cobalt encounters some sort of abandoned base. It seems that the base is also the entrance to a small cave system, home to the baddies who attacked the Mycelian town.
Their building style is quite unique, so Cobalt decides to take a picture of it as well.
That’s not very nice of them
After some time spent shooting, rolling and collecting loot, it looks like Cobalt is about to reach the heart of the base…
While running around, Cobalt encounters some prison cells. Apparently some fellow mycelians were captured, and they tell agent Cobalt that some time ago the baddies that live here used to trade robot parts for prisoners. What would they even use those for?
The bounce-around tunnel
After finding a secret exit, Cobalt finds itself bouncing from wall to wall, the plants making it almost impossible to progress forward…
At the same time, it seems like there’s noise coming from the other end of the cave. Something important is waiting, Cobalt can feel it.
What will Cobalt encounter at the other end of the cave?

We’re back in action!

This week in Cobalt #4

Happy holidays!

How’s visiting family (or whatever else you do!) going? In my case, it’s keeping me quite busy!
However, I had enough spare time to check the Oxeye blog during the 25th!
What’s so important about that, you ask? Well, our dear community member Librus wrote a very interesting blogpost to celebrate such day and holidays!
Go read if you haven’t already! The link is here.

A Holiday Special by Librus

happy

Hey there, folks! Librus here, the Cobalt community’s resident writer and part-time artist! You may also recognize me from a few Sand In The Gears episodes. For those who know me, yes, it’s about time I get to share my talent with the wonderful chaps at Oxeye. You’ve probably seen my works on the Cobalt Forums, and if not, you should check it out! Wonderful people there. Love it if you could join us!

Now, for today’s little special, I have a Cobalt-Related holiday tale. It’s an old one, back when I was… a grumpier fellow, I’ll just say. I’ll leave it to your crafty imaginations to see where the inspiration from this comes! So gather around, and grab a mug of hot cocoa! Or whatever takes your fancy, rather. Are Metalfaces even capable of drinking, come to think of it…? No matter!

Hit the jump to read!
