  • PUBG Will Be On PS4 After Exclusivity Period

    pubg ps4 exclusivityIf you're hoping to play Playerunknown's Battlegrounds on your PS4, we have some good and bad news for you today.

    First things first, it's been confirmed that Battlegrounds developer Bluehole has set up an exclusivity deal with Microsoft. Bluehole is also interested in bringing Battlegrounds to the PS4 after this exclusivity period runs out.

    Bluehole is apparently in talks with Sony to make this happen. So far, this is the good news that has come out of a recent report that shares some insider details on the Xbox exclusivity deal.

    The bad news is that Bluehole and Microsoft have been in further talks to essentially lengthen the exclusivity deal for PUBG. This would mean that Battlegrounds would stay exclusive to the Xbox One and the PC for longer than previously planned.

    According to a report by Bloomberg, anonymous individuals, who have chosen to keep their identity private, were present during talks between Microsoft and Bluehole. There was a discussion in place in which both parties involved talked about "extending their agreement to publish the game exclusively on Xbox."

    The same individuals made claims that Bluehole was in talks with "all the major console companies," suggesting that it may not just be the PS4 and the Xbox One that Bluehole has their eyes on.

    Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has quickly become the most played game on Steam ever. Recently the game beat Free-to-play title Dota 2's world record for Steam concurrent users. Last week, Battlegrounds took their accomplishment even higher and surpassed 1.6 million concurrent users.

  • PUBG Playerbase Overtook F2P Title Dota 2

    pubg playerbase beats dota 2If you haven't played Playerunknown's Battlegrounds yet, chances are you've at least heard of it. The game has quickly become the most played Steam title on PC. Recently, Battlegrounds managed to overtake Dota 2, the reigning Steam champ.

    Battlegrounds hit a peak of 877,000 players earlier this month. With these stats, it narrowly outperformed Dota 2 for both peak player and concurrent player numbers.

    Since the inception of Dota 2 on Steam, not a single game has managed to consistently stay as high in the charts as Battlegrounds has. Over the last few years, very few gameplay titles have managed to get past Dota 2, either. This is partially due to the fact that Dota 2 is a free-to-play MOBA title, just like League of Legends. It's also due to the fact that Steam's company, Valve, has developed the game.

    The closest game to compete with Dota 2 is Valve's other game Counter Strike: Global Offensive. A game currently retailing for around $10.

    The recent stats are even more impressive when you realize that Playerunknown's Battlegrounds currently retails for around $30, three times as much as Counter Strike: Global Offensive.

    Currently, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is exclusive to the PC platform. A third party developer is working on bringing Battlegrounds to Xbox One, and we should see it make it to Xbox's Early Access program soon.

    We don't yet have a release date for the Xbox One version, and there's no news of PUBG ever coming to PlayStation 4.

  • Rune: Ragnarok Is A New Upcoming Open World RPG

    rune ragnarok new open world gameHuman Head, the same development team as Prey and Prey 2, is now working on a brand new open world RPG game called Rune: Ragnarok.

    Surprisingly, Rune: Ragnarok isn't the first Rune game in the franchise. In fact, Human Head created a game called Rune that released way back in 2000.

    It looks like Rune: Ragnarok will be the game to revitalize that universe in an exciting new way. So far, we know very little about Rune: Ragnarok other than that the development team is working on it, and it'll be released some point in the future.

    No details on release windows or gameplay reveal trailers have yet been mentioned.

    We do have a single non-gameplay reveal trailer though. In the reveal trailer the narrator is heard saying the following:

    "From birth, the children of the North hear tales of the end of the world. A battle so great the gods fall and the Nine Worlds are consumed by frost and fire. But these tales are false. The gods did not perish. For seven years our worlds have been devoured by death and destruction. Now, mankind must rise and do what the gods could not. Ragnarok must end."

    We don't have any information about which platforms the new Ragnarok game will be launched on, but Human Head does mention on their website that they work on PC, consoles, VR, and mobile devices. Hopefully, Rune Ragnarok will get a launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We may even see some VR-related gameplay if we're lucky.

  • New Friday The 13th Update Released

    new friday 13th update teamkillingA brand new update for Friday The 13th has now been released to the masses. The update is available for download on all platforms.

    The new update for Friday The 13th mostly brings a number of bug fixes and gameplay balancing. Most importantly, however, is the removal of friendly fire in most instances. Going forward, it will now be very hard to take out your teammates. These changes have been made to help cut down on griefing.

    According to the development team, the team-killing mechanic was getting abused - the community reported 'rampant abuse' of the feature.

    The only way players can kill their teammates after this latest update is if they run them over. This means any weapons that counselors pickup cannot be used on their teammates.

    Interestingly, this new update also changes the layout of most of the maps in Friday The 13th. Maps have been made smaller to help improve the flow of gameplay and to keep things as action-packed and tense as possible.

    The full changes for all of the maps can be seen below:

    • Added Small Maps for the existing maps; Packanack Small, Higgins Haven Small, and Camp Crystal Lake Small.
    • Increased the density of Kill locations on all maps.
    • Adjusted collision on Maps to prevent people from standing on water.
    • Adjusted collision on piers to prevent cars from driving on them.
    • Added a Map Icon to Campfire Kills.
    • Fixed a number of kill spots that were not functioning.
    • Fixed an issue with not being able to fix boat propellers based on boat positioning on the dock.
    • Placed collision under piers to prevent people from swimming under them.
    • Fixed a number of areas that the player could get out of the map.
    • Fixed a number of areas that Counselors could get to that Jason could not.
    • Added better collision around Boat Exits to prevent Jason from getting to areas he shouldn't be in.
  • Age of Empires IV Announced

    age of empires ivOut of nowhere, Microsoft has geared up to announce Age of Empires IV. The game will launch for Xbox One and Windows, and it will also launch a definitive edition of the first three Age of Empires games.

    So far, we know very little about Age of Empires IV besides the fact that it's coming. We do know that the studio responsible for Age of Empires IV will be the Microsoft Games Studio. Many of the developers from the original Age of Empires trilogy have moved on, so instead Microsoft has hired out the bulk of developers responsible for the Company of Heroes real time strategy franchise.

    The development team made a statement alongside the Age of Empires IV announcement trailer.

    "We can't wait to tap into our strengths as a studio to fuse historical context with deep strategic gameplay, and to bring this franchise back to the forefront of gaming and into the hands of its beloved community. We look forward to sharing with you more details in the months to come. For now, just know we are beyond excited to be working on the next entry into the legendary franchise."

    The last Age of Empires title launched in 2011 as a free-to-play game for Windows. Many players didn't consider it worthy of the Age of Empires name, however, and the last game to get praise from critics across the globe was Age of Empires 3, which launched in 2005.

    The Age of Empires Definitive Edition is set to launch exclusively for Windows 10 later this year in the Windows Store. The Definitive Edition will go on sale on October 19 and will include remastered versions of the first three Age of Empires games.

  • The Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein II To Get 4K Xbox One X Support

    the evil within 2 4k xbox one xTwo more games have been listed as 4K supported titles for those that pick up the Xbox One X.

    The new games include The Evil Within 2, and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. If you visit the Xbox Games Store link for either of these two games, you'll now notice a number of logos to showcase their 4K support.

    These logos include "Xbox One X Enhanced," "HDR," and "4K Ultra HD" and are often used on games that have had texture reworks for the Xbox One X.

    With The Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus joining the Xbox One X launch party, the list of games with Xbox One X and 4K support is starting to grow.

    Other games recently announced for Xbox One X include the unreleased Crackdown 3, Assassin's Creed: Origins, Forza Horizon 7, and Sea of Thieves.

    A number of developers and publishers have teamed up with Microsoft to launch 4K support for their existing games, as well.

    Some of these upgrades to existing games include Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Killer Instinct, Minecraft, and Halo 5.

    The Xbox One X will launch on November 7, later this year. The new Xbox enhanced 4K console will cost USD $499.

    If you already own a game that will be getting an upgrade to support 4K and HDR on the Xbox One X, you'll simply need to boot up the game on the Xbox One X console and you'll get a prompt to download the necessary files.

  • Superhot Coming to PS4 and PSVR

    Superhot PSVRIt's now been confirmed that Superhot for the PS4 and for PSVR are coming this month. The game will launch on July 21 in North America, and shortly before in other regions.

    Superhot is a first person shooter video game that has a unique time-based game mechanic. In Superhot, time in the game only progresses when the player moves. This gives the player the ability to assess their moves carefully before continuing.

    The game has already seen a lot of success on the Xbox One and PC, and a VR version was receiving a lot of praise from owners of the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.

    With the new Superhot and Superhot VR for PlayStation 4, the controls have been repurposed to support the Sony DualShock 4 and PlayStation Move controllers. The gameplay itself hasn't been changed.

    There are two versions of Superhot coming to the PlayStation 4. Players can either pick up the standard version, the VR version that has PSVR support, or a bundle that includes both versions.

    You can pick up either of the two versions of Superhot on the PS4 for USD $25, or alternatively, you can pick up the bundle for USD $40.

    With the huge amount of praise that Superhot and Superhot VR received from Xbox One and PC players, are you going to pick up Superhot? Will you play the standard version, or are you hoping to take the more immersive route with the VR version?

  • Dead by Daylight Released to Consoles

    dead by daylight consolesPerhaps after seeing the success of the Friday the 13th game, the Dead By Daylight developers have now pushed out their release for their game across PS4 and Xbox One.

    The new Dead By Daylight console launch is available exclusively as a digital download from either the Xbox Games Store or the PSN marketplace. The new console version has a number of achievements for Xbox One and trophies on PS4 for players to unlock.

    For those unaware, Dead By Daylight is a survival multiplayer game that gives players the chance to play as either one of the survivors or as the killer.

    When playing as the single killer, you must attempt to kill each of the survivors before they can escape. When playing as the survivors, you must team up with other players to either escape or take the killer down.

    There are a number of different killers available, some of which are based on real life serial killers or serial killers from pop culture. The killers available in the console release are the Trapper, the Wraith, the Hillbilly, the Nurse, the Shape, the Hag, and the Doctor.

    Just like with Friday the 13th the game, trying to win as the survivors is far more difficult than it would first seem, despite the fact that the survivors outnumber the Killer.

    This new wave of asymmetrical multiplayer games has certainly brought a breath of fresh air to the industry, so we're grateful to see Dead By Daylight available on Xbox One and the PS4.

    Dead By Daylight will initially be available for $29.99

  • Friday The 13th Getting Free DLC

    friday the 13th free dlcFollowing the poor server performance during the release month for the new Friday The 13th game, the developers have apologized by offering the first upcoming DLC release to all players for free.

    Gun Media wanted to thank their player base for the patience they have had with the server issues, and have mentioned that a previously planned paid DLC pack will now be pushed out to all players for free.

    The new DLC pack includes a retro style Jason and a new soundtrack created by Swedish electronic artist Mitch Murder to fit the retro style. Each of the counselors has new clothing items in the upcoming DLC pack too, and every player will be rewarded with 13,000 customization points.

    On top of the new content, Gun Media has revealed that they will be running a double XP event from June 23 to June 25.

    Gun Media revealed in their press release that they were surprised by the huge following Friday the 13th the game received during its launch month. "Overall, Gun Media is very thankful to our fans, supporters, and those interested in the game. We were completely overwhelmed by the amount of users that tried to play at launch, enough to break our servers and force us to upgrade. That process has evened out since then, however, we are still working to smooth out the experience even more across all three platforms."

    Have you played Friday the 13th yet? The new DLC lands on June 20 and the double XP event will follow next weekend, starting on June 23, so there's never been a better time to pick the game up

  • Darksiders 3 Trailer Released

    darksiders 3 trailerIt has been 5 years since the last Darksiders game got a release. After a long wait, a Darksiders 3 trailer has hit the internet and everybody is getting very excited.

    THQ Nordic has confirmed that Darksiders 3 will be making its way to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2018.

    The THQ Nordic CEO, Lars Wingefors, mentioned that "As promised, we have taken our time to ensure that this next Darksiders will be everything action-adventure gamers and especially Darksiders loyalists could dream of and more."

    In the past 5 years, action adventure games have evolved. In many thanks to the Dark Souls franchise, action adventure games have become one of the most grueling, difficult genres available - we're hoping THQ Nordic will take some inspiration from some of the latest and greatest games in the genre to re-imagine the Darksiders 3 franchise, while still sticking close to the series' roots.

    Alongside the recent trailer, THQ Nordic has released some information about the background story for Darksiders 3. We have provided an excerpt below.

    Return to an apocalyptic planet Earth in Darksiders III, a hack-n-slash action adventure where players take on the role of Fury in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins. The Charred Council calls upon Fury to battle from the heights of heaven down to the depths of hell in a quest to restore humanity and prove that she is the most powerful of the Horsemen. As a mage, Fury relies on her whip and magic to restore the balance between good and evil. The expansive, Darksiders III game world is presented as an open-ended, living, free-form planet Earth that is dilapidated by war and decay, and overrun by nature. Fury will move back and forth between environments to uncover secrets while advancing the Darksiders III story.
