  • 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.

  • PS4 System Update 5.0 Launched

    ps4 system update 5.0A brand new system update for the PlayStation 4 has been released. PS4 owners can download and install the new 5.0 system update now.

    While moving to 5.0 sounds like quite a big jump, there aren't any significant changes in this latest system update. Unlike previous big OS updates for the PS4, the 5.0 system update puts a focus on backend fixes.

    The visual changes are very minor, but we'll discuss what has changed below.

    The biggest feature of the PS4 5.0 system update is the support for Twitch streaming up to 1080p resolution for those with a PS4 Pro. If you own a PS4 Pro, you'll be able to stream your game directly to Twitch at 60 frames per second and in 1080p resolution. You are now able to follow users in PS4's What's New feed. Previously, it was only possible to follow verified users from this feed.

    A couple of changes have also been made to the notifications system on the PS4 5.0 system update. Starting in 5.0, PS4 owners can now prevent notification pop-ups from appearing during video playback. People will now also be able to leave a party and check notifications from within the PS4 Quick Menu.

    Sony has also added reworked parental controls. PS4 owners can now create a 'family' account and have different labels for that account. Labels include parent/guardian and child. Each label can have its own set of permissions.

    What are your thoughts on this system update? It's not very exciting, but the few changes may prove useful for some PS4 owners.

  • The Crew 2 Pre-order And Release Details Published

    crew 2 preorderThanks to an announcement at Gamescom, we now have a release date and pre-order details for the upcoming racer, The Crew 2.

    Firstly, it has now been confirmed that the release date for The Crew 2 has been locked in for March 16, 2018. On this release date, the game will be released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

  • Big Patch Live for Battlefield 1

    big patch battlefield 1A brand new update has gone live for Battlefield 1 and it contains a huge number of changes and tweaks to the game.

    To begin with, the new patch adds a brand new map to Battlefield 1. The new map is called Lupkow Pass - it's available to anybody that has either the season pass or the Name of the Tsar DLC.

    The new Lupkow Pass map is set in Russia, deep in the Carpathian mountains. A lot of the new map is focused on verticality and fights between different levels of the mountains.

    While the new map is limited to those that have the DLC, there are a number of features and changes in the new update that is available to everybody.

    One of the biggest changes includes a bug fix that stops the weapon loadout UI from disappearing. The horse turn speed has been increased by 25% too, which will make those that use the horse more mobile.

    DICE has also made it so jumping over obstacles with horses has been improved. The jumping mechanic is now far more reliable, so players should be able to feel confident before taking their next jump. Sounds for single-fire and semi-automatic weapons have been improved - they should no longer cut off randomly.

    There are a huge number of tweaks, bug fixes and small changes that have been applied to the new patch too. The full notes can be seen on the Battlefield website.

  • No Man's Sky Getting an Update - Worth Revisiting?

    no man's sky atlas rising updateSurprise, surprise - No Man's Sky is getting a big update and it may even make the game worth a revisit.

    When No Man's Sky first launched, it was eaten into by the gaming community because of the developer behind the game, Hello Games, vastly under delivered. They broke many promises about the content of the game.

    For example, Hello Games mentioned that No Man's Sky would have multiplayer, and the game would have a universe where players could leave their mark. Both of these features were quickly debunked as soon as No Man's Sky launched.

    In the new update, No Man's Sky will be getting some kind of story that serves to piece together the game's existing content and provide players with more of a reason to explore.

    The new update is called Atlas Rises, and it is available to all No Man's Sky players for free. The patch notes for Atlas Rises haven't yet been revealed, but the most notable features include a brand new story and a quick travel feature that will allow players to travel between worlds quickly.

    When the patch notes are released for Atlas Rises, we'll share more on this brand new update. Do you think a brand new story could be enough to get players to return to No Man's Sky?

    Let us know your thoughts on No Man's Sky and Hello Games by leaving a comment below. We'd love to hear your opinions.

  • 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?

  • Destiny 2 New Crucible Detailed

    destiny 2 crucibleDuring the Destiny 2 live stream, changes to the Crucible were announced live.

    It's been confirmed that the Destiny 2 Crucible PvP mode will have more of a focus on competitive gameplay. As a result, the mode has been adapted to better fit a competitive format.

  • Overwatch Hero Orisa Now On Live Servers

    overwatch hero orisaAfter a short time on the public test environment on the PC, Orisa, a new hero in Overwatch, has been added to the live servers for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

    The new hero, named Orisa, is a brand new tank hero for Overwatch. To begin with, Orisa will not be available in competitive play. For the first few weeks, Orisa will be limited to Quick Play, Arcade and the Play Vs. AI modes. Blizzard has explained that they'd like their player base to get to learn how Orisa works before she is thrown into the competitive meta.

    While Orisa is a tank, she has an arsenal of abilities to help protect her team, which makes her a viable support as well. Her main weapon is called the Fusion Driver - it can deal consistent damage to enemies, but Orisa is slowed down the longer the weapon is used as a throwback. Her alternate fire is called Halt and this allows Orisa to create a small detonated charge that can slow enemies.

    Orisa's ultimate ability is called Supercharger. With this, Orisa can fire a device that can buff the damage output of all nearby enemies. Orisa's other abilities include Protective Barrier, which is a static shield that can block incoming damage, and Fortify, which reduces the amount of damage Orisa can take for a short period of time.

    In other news, a recent patch in the public test environment brought a number of changes to Lucio. These changes will soon go live to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and public PC servers.
