Apex Legends Is Adding Cross-Play In An Upcoming October Update

It may come as a surprise to some, but cross-play isn’t nearly as universal of a feature as one would expect in today’s day and age. While many games do have the ability for people to play with or against each other across multiple platforms, far more games have no such feature at all, which can be a real hassle for people that want to play the same game with each other but don’t have the same platform to do it all with. That’s why it’s always good news when a game has cross-play functionality, and even better news when a very popular game that didn’t have it before gains access to it. Such is the case for the immensely popular Apex Legends from Respawn Entertainment.

Members Of A Noteworthy Gaming Piracy Group Have Been Arrested

Quite recently, members of the prominent multinational video game piracy group Team Xecutor have been arrested, and they are facing multiple serious felony charges. This was announced by US Attorney's Office of the Western District of Washington on October 3rd. The arrested individuals were Max Louarn, Yuanning Chen, and Gary Bowser, all of whom were all charged with 11 felony counts, including conspiracy to commit money laundering, wire fraud, and trafficking in circumvention devices.

Introducing Luna, The Newest Player To The Cloud Gaming Service Industry

Apparently, Amazon thinks it can carve its own niche out of the gaming industry. Whether or not that is true, we have no idea. But we’re certainly interested by the attempt, and we’re going to tell you all about it. The gaming service will be called Luna, and it is going to use Amazon Web Services, or AWS, as its main foundation. According to CNET, the service will supposedly be available anywhere, including on iPhone and iPad. Starting today, one can request early access to this service.

Nintendo Promises That The Next Console Will Come Out Before 2100

Considering the success of the Switch, it should come as no surprise to anyone that Nintendo has no intention of leaving the hardware scene at any point in the near future. In a corporate management briefing, Nintendo confirmed that they are working on new hardware: but as for when it will release, apparently they are only willing to say this it will be sometime before 2099. More accurately, the statement was that their “next gaming system” would launch sometime in “20XX.”

Pre-Orders For Xbox Series X Are Available Now

The real question is where you can begin pre-ordering the Microsoft Xbox Series X: a number of different retailers are already showing stock, as well as the availability to pre-order. This includes Best Buy, which is no real surprise to anyone, but you can also find them at Sam’s Club. Listing for preorders went live on the usual retailer websites today, including Target, Walmart, Microsoft, and GameStop, but as quickly as the listings appeared, they were sold out. No big surprise there either, as everyone probably jumped on the opportunity to pre-order the new consoles as swiftly as possible.

Where To Preorder The PlayStation 5

The PlayStation 5 is launching on November 12th for $500, the same price as the Xbox Series X. The digital edition, which is akin...

Ubisoft Says That PS5 Backwards Compatibility Will Be Severely Limited

Ever since the advent of new generations of consoles following the first, backwards compatibility has been a hot topic for gamers and game developers. After all, many gamers want to be able to play their old favorites, even if they get a new console. Unfortunately, those who purchase the Sony PlayStation 5 will be severely limited in backwards compatibility capabilities. According to Ubisoft, the PlayStation 5 will not have backwards compatibility support for anything earlier than the PS4: that includes the PS1, 2 and 3, of course.

Mario, Of All Franchises, Is Getting A Battle Royale Game

Ever since PUBG hit the ground running, the battle royale genre has become immensely popular in the modern generation of gaming. Over the past few years, nearly everyone has tried to get it on the hype of battle royale games in one way or another, even if their games weren’t originally intended to work in such a fashion. And yet, that paradigm is going to continue: believe it or not, one of the recently announced Mario games from Nintendo is a battle royale game.

Resident Evil Is Getting A TV Series On Netflix

The Resident Evil Franchise is mostly known for its video games, but it has dabbled in television and movies from time to time. However, most of them weren’t extremely popular. Fans have a pretty polarized view of the movies even if they sold decently over time, but either way, it seems that Netflix is going to give it another shot, green lighting a Resident Evil show that has a director from Breaking Bad attached to it.

Confirmed PlayStation Plus Free Games for September 2020

Which free games are available for PlayStation Plus in September 2020? As soon as September 1st comes around, subscribers will be able to get their hands on both Street Fighter V and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Admittedly, this duo is a significantly stronger offering of titles than PlayStation Plus usually offers, so they are definitely worth grabbing before they are gone on October 5th.

Crysis Remastered Is Coming To PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Summer

Due to negative feedback on the first gameplay reveal for Crysis Remastered, it was delayed beyond its initial release date. Instead of the initial date it was supposed to debut on, it will now be released on September 18th for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Being a remaster instead of a brand-new game, it will retail for just $30 instead of the traditional $60.

Ubisoft Collector’s Edition Games In The UK For Upcoming Xbox One Titles Will Be...

It turns out that Ubisoft has enacted a change to the Collector's editions of three very anticipated Xbox titles for those living in the UK. If you are a UK resident and you pre-ordered the Collector's editions for Watch Dogs: Legion, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, or Far Cry 6 for the Xbox One, you will no longer receive a physical copy of the game. Instead, you will only get a digital copy.

The Hotly Anticipated Halo Infinite Has Been Delayed

A lot of games have been getting delayed over the past few months: Cyberpunk 2077 got delayed more than twice, and lots of other titles suffered similar fates. However, no one expected one of the most hotly anticipated games of 2020 to get delayed, especially since it is the flagship title for the Xbox, and has been for twenty years. That’s right: Halo Infinite has been delayed until 2021. As for why, Developer 343 Industries stated that a major reason for the delay was the shift to work-from-home operations, and that it will give the team the time to "deliver a Halo game experience that meets our vision."

You Can Get Hulu For Cheaper If You Pay For A Yearly Subscription, But...

As of right now, Hulu subscribers that use the $6 per month plan, which includes ads, can save money by purchasing a yearly subscription at $60. Naturally, that year subscription will also include ads, so don’t go thinking you get out of that bit. All in all, it’s not great savings, simply taking the overall cost down by $12 over the course of the year, but paying $5 a month for Hulu is still better than paying $6. Simple math. Moreover, this new subscription price will ensure that Hulu remains particularly budget-friendly for the whole family, a title it’s had for some time now anyway.

Microsoft Has Warned Developers Not To Offer Xbox Series X Upgrades As Paid DLC

Microsoft has allegedly warned Xbox Series X developers against charging for DLC upgrades from the Xbox One to the generation that will succeed it. The intent seems to be disincentivizing publishers from charging money for a service that Microsoft wants to be a serious aspect of their Smart Delivery platform. Naturally, Microsoft wants the smoothest transition possible between console generations, with no barriers to players keeping their games when moving to the Xbox Series X. Of course, something like that would generally cost a bit of money.

Xbox Hints That Halo Infinite Will Have A Much Different Structure Than Previous Halo...

Without a doubt, Halo Infinite is one of the most hotly anticipated games of the upcoming holiday season, at least as far as the Xbox is concerned. This isn’t really surprising considering the nature of Halo as one of Microsoft’s flagship series. And yet, very little has been revealed about the game, with the public only seeing a few cinematic trailers. Xbox has said that the game will be significantly different from previous Halo games, but of course we can still expect the game to look and play like a Halo entry, but Xbox’s Phil Spencer recently made a few hints about how the game will be structurally different from the Master Chief Collection, though it’s a little unclear what he is implying.

Xbox Live Gold Will No Longer Have 12-Month Subscriptions

Some serious changes are being made to Xbox Live Gold’s subscription program, as Microsoft has decided to discontinue their year-long subscription plans. As of now, only monthly and three-month Xbox Live Gold subscriptions are available from Microsoft's website. Unfortunately, this was not an accidental change, and Microsoft definitely intended to make it happen, for reasons they extrapolated on to some extent.

PS5 Pre-Order Information: Everything You Need To Know

News about the PS5 has been pretty scattered and vague for the most part, so to make it easier for everyone who is invested, we’ve put together this article that covers the variety of things everyone needs to know about the PS5 right now. Pre-ordering the PS5 Despite alluding to it so many times, Sony only revealed the PlayStation 5 to the world for the very first time last month. Naturally, we learned about a huge array of games that will be released on the next generation, but Sony also provided a first look at the PS5 itself, as well as many first-party accessories that will go with it. Unfortunately, Sony still hasn't announced the price or release date for the console, so it is currently impossible to pre-order it.

Dead By Daylight Is Adding New Features, Including Cross Play For All Consoles

It turns out that Dead By Daylight will be getting a sizable update soon, specifically for its console versions. Most notably, this update will add cross-play and a new progression system, though it will also add the ability to access your full friend’s list, even if those friends are playing the game across different platforms. Obviously, that’s being added to help with the new cross platform game play.
