The Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla DLC Roadmap Has Been Revealed

Like a great number Assassin's Creed games that have come before this most recent title, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will get a very significant amount of post-launch DLC, which is no surprise for a Ubisoft game. That said, some of the DLC will be free, while other parts will be locked behind a $40 season pass. After all, content takes money to make, so no surprise there either.

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.

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.

The Pre-Order Bonuses for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order have been Revealed

While we’ve known about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order since it was revealed back at E3 of 2018, we’ve only recently received a release date for it, that being November 15th of 2019. It’ll launch on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, though PC distribution will be handled solely through EA’s Origin Store. The game, being developed by Respawn Entertainment of Titanfall and Apex Legends renown, will be entirely single-player.

The First Three Games in the Dragon Quest Series will soon be on the...

For fans of the ever popular Dragon Quest series, there’s good new to be had, provided you own a Nintendo Switch. Of course there’s the release of Dragon Quest 11 to look forward to later this month, but we aren’t referring to that alone. Square Enix has announced that the first three games in the series will also be released on Nintendo Switch on September 27th. The three of them will be sold individually on the Nintendo eShop, though it’s unclear if they will also get a physical copy release at some point.
Two More Assassin’s Creed Games may be Coming to the Switch

Two More Assassin’s Creed Games may be Coming to the Switch

While it still feels a little odd for a Nintendo gaming platform to have some not very kid-friendly titles made available for it, it’s pretty clear at this point that we can expect it to become the norm. After all, now that Bulletstorm of all games is getting a Switch release, is there anything too uncouth for the Nintendo Switch? Either way, there was a brief listing on The Console Club recently, which offered a preorder for an Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, and Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Bundle. The bundle was listed for the rough equivalent of about $42.00, but it has been removed since then.

Xbox Games With Gold For November 2020

Finally, Microsoft has gone ahead and revealed the next four games that Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to get. These many games span the breadth of three generations of Xbox consoles, and as long as you remain a subscriber to Gold, you’ll have access to all of them for free. Naturally, that means you’ll be locked out of playing them if your subscription ends.

The Newest PUBG Update Introduces Cross-Play to the Game

It’s a common line of thinking; if a game is available on multiple platforms, being able to play against players from any platform would be a good thing. It ensures that there are more players to face off against in matchmaking, which is never a bad thing. That said, it took Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds some time to make the cross-platform move, but the most recent update is here, and with it, cross-play.

Australia is Having a Difficult Time Managing its Game Censorship Rules

In Australia, adults can purchase Quentin Tarantino’s 1992 Reservoir Dogs with no trouble whatsoever. However, they can’t purchase the 2006 video game of Reservoir Dogs, which follows the plot of the movie exactly. According to the Australian Classification Board, the video game is banned "because of high impact violence and torture," while the movie itself is not banned for the same reason. This is only one example of the major issues Australia has when classifying and banning video games.

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.

A Huge Number of PC Games are on Sale at GOG for Spring

Spring is here; flowers, pollen, allergies bugs are all on the rise, which kind of brings down the joy of fresh new life and all that. But for us members of the gaming community, none of that really matters anyway, because the most important thing about spring is all the major savings on video games across all platforms. Something about spring just convinces game sellers to put massive discounts on everything, not that there’s anything to complain about.

Kerbal Space Program 2 is set to Launch in 2020

Kerbal Space Program; a game that looks like it would be all fun and games, but is actually pretty mathematically intensive, and generally leads to horrific contraptions that nevertheless manage to sail the cosmos. We’re finally getting a sequel to this wonderful game, though we have to wait until 2020. All of this was revealed during the opening night livestream from Gamescom 2019, in which Star Theory developers revealed the sequel to their amazingly popular spacecraft building and flying simulator, Kerbal Space Program.

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.”

Shovel Knight: King of Cards is on its way, as well as Two Spinoff...

Shovel Knight, a game that soared into popularity shortly after its release, has been one of the best platforming games of the past decade. The game has been out for quite some time, and with its huge success, it’s a wonder that it took so long for a sequel to come out; Shovel Knight: King of Cards, isn’t exactly a sequel, instead being an add-on for the main game. However, this add-on is pretty much the size of an entire game on its own, so it may as well be a sequel.

Predator: Hunting Grounds will get a Trial Weekend in March

Beginning on March 27th and ending on the 29th, developer Illfonic will have a trial weekend for the soon to be released asymmetrical shooter, Predator: Hunting Grounds.

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.
