With open levels that encourage exploration and verticality, players must navigate environments by climbing and scaling structures, providing an experience reminiscent of the Assassin’s Creed series. Additionally, Ecumene Aztec introduces an intriguing skill unlock system, wherein players must partake in rituals that involve sacrificing individuals to acquire new abilities, offering a fresh and thought-provoking approach to character progression.

While specific details about the storyline are scarce at this early stage of development, Giantscraft’s ambitious undertaking in delving into the realm of ancient Aztec civilization sets Ecumene Aztec apart, piquing the curiosity of players eager for an immersive and morally ambiguous gaming experience.

The CSGO map de_voyna, which aimed to provide uncensored information about the invasion of Ukraine to Russian players, is no longer accessible to anyone with a Russian IP address. It seems that Valve, the game’s developer, has implemented a block specifically targeting Russian players. This means that Russia will be deprived of access to the truth, contradicting the map’s original purpose.

Helsingin Sanomat, the Finnish newspaper that created the map, believes that Valve’s involvement in blocking access to the map is evident. They argue that it would be difficult for censorship to accurately target a single custom map, suggesting that Valve is responsible for the blockage.

The situation is frustrating because the map was designed to circumvent news censorship and provide unfiltered information about the war in Ukraine to Russian CSGO players. The actions of Valve in this regard have raised questions about their role and motivations in limiting access to important content.

This survey provides an opportunity for fans to voice their desire and potentially influence Capcom’s future projects. By allowing fans to express their preferences, Capcom can gather valuable feedback and gauge the interest in various remakes or reboots within the Resident Evil franchise.
