World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands Will Now Come Out In November

Originally, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands was scheduled to release on October 27th, a date that is now past. However, much to the chagrin of numerous excited gamers, the game was delayed in order to “add more polish” and ensure that it was as good as it could be before release. Thankfully, the delay is a matter of weeks, not months, like many other 2020 releases. We know now that World of Warcraft: Shadowlands will be available on November 23rd.

Ubisoft Delays Both Rainbow Six Quarantine And Far Cry 6 Until At Least March...

Ubisoft has pushed two of its biggest upcoming titles, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Far Cry 6, out of the current fiscal year and into the fiscal year for 2021 to 2022. Unfortunately, this is quite the delay and provides us with a huge window for when either game may become available. They may come out anytime between April 2021 and March 2022. During an earnings call, CFO Frédérick Duguet said that the window of time may be slightly smaller, claiming that they should drop in the first half of the fiscal year. However, that is not a guarantee or confirmation that they will.

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.

Another Director Has Left Halo Infinite

Quite recently, director Chris Lee has left Halo Infinite, news that is coming not too far on the heels of the game’s delay from the release date that was supposed to coincide with the launch of the Xbox Series X/S. That delay ended up pushing Halo Infinite back to some as of yet to be revealed date in 2021.

PlayStation Plus Free Games For November 2020

In usual fashion, Sony has finally decided to inform the masses as to what games they will be receiving for the month of November, provided they are subscribers to PlayStation Plus. We’re confident in saying that it is quite possibly one of the best months that the program has ever had. First up are two highly praised major titles, those being Hollow Knight: Voidheart edition and Middle-earth: Shadow of War. Each of these great games will be free starting on November 3. Both of them are excellent games, but there’s actually better news, as the most exciting freebie included in November is actually the bonus title, Bugsnax. Indeed, the PlayStation exclusive title will be free on launch day.

A Smash Bros. Ultimate Freebie Is Available For Switch Online Members

Right about now, Nintendo is offering subscribers to their Switch Online service another freebie for the game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

The Classic Tickets can be wagered before a run in Classic Mode, and if you win, you’ll get extra rewards. It’s worth noting that we’re not exactly sure how limited the window to get this freebie is, but you’ll probably have at least a week to do it.

Apex Legends For The Nintendo Switch Has Been Delayed Until 2021

Electronic Arts has recently provided the gaming community with updates regarding Apex Legends for both the Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam, confirming for us when the game will launch on both platforms. Unfortunately, it’s not all good news for people awaiting the release. But, it’s not all bad either. As of right now, Apex Legends will still become available for PC via Steam on November 4th. Origin players, in particular, will be able to switch back and forth between Origin and Steam, with their progression being kept between the two platforms.

PlayStation Will Get An Exclusive Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Mode

Gamers are plenty familiar with the notion of console exclusive games: Halo for the Xbox, Uncharted for the PlayStation, you know how it goes. However, it’s not every day that a console gets an exclusive mode for a game, which is what’s happening for both the PlayStation 4 and 5 in regards to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. There are a few caveats though.

Ubisoft Connect Is Aiming To Make Cross-Progression A New Standard

Recently, Ubisoft has made quite a significant change to its primary player services, Ubisoft Club and Uplay. From here on out, both services will function under Ubisoft Connect, a platform from the popular game publisher that intends to aid players in staying connected with not only each other, but themselves, via things like cross-progression and cross-platform support. Ubisoft Connect will debut on October 29 alongside the launch of Watch Dogs: Legion. Players with a Ubisoft account will be able to "play, progress, and stay in touch with friends anywhere."

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.

Atari Is Not Only Making A New Console, But Also Cryptocurrency

The headline of this article is something you probably never expected to read. We’re going to level with you: we weren’t expecting it either. And yet, it’s a true statement. Atari is looking to launch a new console this coming fall, but along with it, a new form of cryptocurrency as well. The Atari VCS is supposed to be available come November, and players will be able to buy things for it using currency dubbed “Atari Tokens.” These tokens are in fact backed by Bitcoin.

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

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.

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

Ubisoft Says That PS5 Backwards Compatibility Will Be Severely Limited

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.
