Recompile, a 3D title with Metroidvania style mechanics and a unique hacking mechanic, is one of the most recent titles to be confirmed for the next generation of consoles, for both the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5. It won’t be coming to either the Xbox One or the PlayStation 4, which makes it a pretty rare next gen only title.
Yoko Taro is the director of both Drakengard and the NieR series, which includes the by-now immensely popular title NieR: Automata. With that game...
Halo Infinite may be in the works right now, but that doesn’t mean it is the only thing related to Halo that 343 has been busy with. One of their teams continues to work on the Master Chief Collection, having continually introduced a number of impressive updates since the game’s inception. And of course, the trend isn’t ending anytime soon, with a rather sizable and notable update coming to Halo: Combat Evolved in particular. In an odd twist, the first and traditionally least customizable game in the franchise is going to be getting some more customization.
The much-anticipated Doom Eternal launched earlier in 2020 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia, but while it was promised that the game would get a Switch port, it has yet to come out. In fact, not even the release date for the Switch port has been announced, leaving fans feeling a little antsy. Since the first Doom reboot got an exceptionally high-quality port for the Switch, expectations are high for the sequel, even though a release date for such a port still hasn’t been announced. But according to Doom Eternal’s devs, this is set to change very soon.
Historically speaking, July has often been a very slow month for video games, because it’s not near any major holiday that gives people a little extra cash or requires them to go out and buy gifts. But a slow month or not, there’s always a new game being released each month, and July this year actually has quite a few exciting titles to mention. These summer releases are definitely worth keeping an eye on as their debuts approach. That said, it’s worth noting that some of these games weren’t originally supposed to be July titles, but they were delayed and pushed back into it. Not that it makes a difference, ultimately.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is coming to a huge variety of platforms this holiday, including Xbox Series X, PS5, Xbox One, PS4, Stadia and PC. That’s a whole lot of platforms, but on top of that there’s also four versions of the game to choose from, so knowing how to pre-order what version you want and need could be a little tedious. This guide will help you through that tedium.
Thanks to the Coronavirus, numerous different events that were supposed to take place this year have been cancelled. Many of those events have been game-related of course, since gathering in one place is always quite dangerous, but surprisingly, EVO 2020 is getting cancelled for something else entirely. EVO 2020 was supposed to be held online this year because of the aforementioned COVID-19 situation, but it wasn’t supposed to be cancelled. But now, it, unfortunately, has been. That’s because it was reported that EVO CEO Joey Cuellar was being placed on administrative leave due to more than one accusation of sexual misconduct. Because of this, the event has been cancelled, and naturally, Cuellar will not be involved with EVO from here on out.
It seems that the loot box controversy that spiked years ago when Battlefront II came out is still making waves across the world as a whole, with many nations considering what role they will play in their legal assessment of gambling. A mere month after the government of the United Kingdom made a call to acquire evidence regarding the function of loot boxes and whether or not they should be regulated more than they are right now, a House of Lords Select Committee on gambling has deemed that loot boxes should immediately be re-classified from their current status to gambling, according to GameIndustry.biz.
It has been quite widely reported prior to now that Microsoft is planning to release a second next-generation Xbox that is supposed to be a less powerful version that lacks a physical media drive. But another report has revealed that this may not actually be the case. Tom Warren of The Verge, who has accurately reported on unannounced Microsoft products in the past, has claimed that the CPU for the cheaper and supposedly inferior version of the next-gen Xbox will have "the same speed as the Series X." That said, Warren did confirm that this cheaper console will have a different GPU frequency and CU count.
July this year will mark the 10th anniversary of PlayStation Plus on the third iteration of Sony’s flagship console, which brought paid multiplayer services and downloadable games every month for its subscribers. To celebrate this anniversary, July 2020's PS Plus offerings are quite strong, with NBA 2K20 and Rise of the Tomb Raider being particularly noteworthy.
Roughly every five years is the window for new generations of video game consoles to be released, and the year 2020 marks that time yet again. By roughly the holiday season this year, we will get to see both the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5. Even though the pandemic has been impacting workflow across all industries, these intended release dates are still holding true, so it won’t be long now before we get to enjoy these new consoles. But what titles will we get to play on these consoles? Well, we may not be able to say for certain what we’ll get to see on the Xbox Series X, but we do have a list of titles that we’ll be able to play on the PlayStation 5, as well as a few guesses as to which other titles we’ll get to see on the future.
Let’s be honest: you either think M. Night is a genius or a total screwup. Probably depends on which of his movies you have seen. Generally, people tend to like The Sixth Sense. Without fail everyone despises The Last Airbender (Movie? What Movie?). Either way, it’s been a while since the notorious director has put a movie out, and whether you are expecting it or dreading it, that movie isn’t all that far off now. A bit more information about it has come to light, though it’s admittedly not that much.
If you fondly remember a certain podracing game back in the old gaming days of yore, you may recall that it was called Star Wars: Episode I Racer. And it was, naturally, the best game ever considering that the podrace scene may have been the best part of Phantom Menace. It certainly competes for the title, at any rate.
It’s a sad tale that has become all too common in the current state of society: game after game is delayed time and time again, pushing expected release dates further and further from what they had originally been. Unfortunately, this sad reality is affecting a game that a great many people were looking forward to, that being Cyberpunk 2077. The game was originally scheduled to release in September, but now we are looking at a November release date, specifically on November 19th for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For now, there’s no real indicator of how this delayed release date will affect the plans for the game to release on the PS5 and Xbox Series X as well.
If there’s one console Electronic Arts has mostly ignored since its release, it is the Nintendo Switch. The past few generations of EA titles have not made it to the handheld console, or if they have, it has been quite rare and rather sparingly. A sad thing to consider for Switch owning EA fans, but that may end up changing sooner rather than later. During EA Play, the company made a statement about being more committed to Switch titles, with a total of seven games supposed to come out on the console in the next 12 months.
One day soon, gamers everywhere will finally be able to enjoy Skate 4: and it has certainly been a long time coming. EA revealed many things during EA Play, but one of the most unexpected by a long shot was the announcement of a new Skate game. This is in fact not a joke, even though it sounds quite unbelievable considering how long it has been since Skate 3.
The most recently announced Star Wars game from EA has a lot of hype going for it, especially since it is an especially rare breed of Star Wars game, what with the first-person flying and all. That said, this title was revealed very recently, so not many people knew much about it. Now though, we have some more info to share with the expectant masses regarding everything we know about Star Wars: Squadrons at this exact moment.
Dell Releases A Refreshed Version Of Their XPS 15 Touchscreen Notebook, Plus A New XPS 17" Model.
June 9th is the day Need for Speed Heat received its final update. The fact that it is the last update for the title is one thing, but there’s another reason it is especially noteworthy: this update will make Need for Speed Heat the first cross-play compatible game in the repertoire of Electronic Arts. Now players of the title will be able to play together whether they are on PC, Xbox, or PlayStation.
Whether it was an accident or intentional, a leak from the official Xbox website has revealed a brand-new Star Wars game that is on its way, called Star Wars: Squadrons. Thanks to the leaks coming out all over the internet, Electronic Arts went ahead and announced the title officially. The announcement of this game was likely not far off anyway, as EA’s postponed Play event is only a few days away. The leak itself only showed art for the game and a pre-order banner, though that banner doesn’t currently lead to any active website.
