Well, there's another step in there where you trade gold for a World of Warcraft Token first. And once that's done you can then trade the WoW Token for either 30 days of game-time, or to add some funds to your Battle.Net balance. Which means that it's now possible to farm gold in WoW in order to purchase Loot Boxes in Overwatch. Or, to buy new skins in Heroes of the Storm. Or, Hearthstone card packs. You get the idea.
With the feature coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on February 21. Homestead gives players the option to buy one of 40 different instanced homes where they're then given thousands of different decorative options to style it in anyway they see fit. Not only decorative, each home can also be equipped with assistants and crafting tables. Plus, there's also inviting other players over for a fantasy themed Kid N' Play style House Party.
At the recent RTX Sydney event, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima spoke with IGN and shared some of his thoughts about Nintendo's next console. Citing a bit of technology that he used in an earlier title that allowed for the transfer of saves from the PlayStation 3 to the PS Vita he went on to state that "the fact you can play something at home and take it outside, this is the gamer's dream" in relation to the Nintendo Switch.
By all accounts Horizon Zero Dawn is shaping up to be Game of the Year material. But, its lush futuristic setting and open world RPG mechanics made it one of the biggest undertakings yet for Killzone developer Guerrilla Games. So much so that the studio had to spend years perfecting it tools and building the right team to make this game a reality. In a new series of videos, we get to see some of that process.
And as a free-to-play Xbox Anywhere title, progress and saves will carry across from Windows 10 to Xbox One. And vice versa. Fallout Shelter, which made its debut in 2015 alongside the announcement of Fallout 4, saw the series make its mobile debut as players took on the role of an Overseer. And managed their very own Vault. Since then the game has seen a number of updates, all of which are expected in this new Xbox version.
Huzzah! Unlimited storage capacity fans rejoice. Because the PS4's 4.50 update is all set to add external HDD support. Which means, just like with Xbox One, you can store any game and app content on just about any USB 3.0 drive -- with support of up to 8TB. Also you'll be able to move stuff from the internal to an external to boot.
Last year's Mafia III received a mixed response from critics, with most pointing to the repetitive mission design as one of the reasons it didn't shine quite as bright as many had hoped. But, when it came to the story side of things, many were on the side that it was an engaging tale with many great characters. And on that note 2017 is looking to be a pretty good year for Mafia III fans, with three separate story-based DLC packs set for release -- starting next month.
And much like his role in Overwatch, Lucio will be a Support Hero. And like with Tracer and Zarya, two Overwatch heroes already in the Heroes of the Storm lineup, his transition to the more traditionally MOBA environment should be fairly seamless. As in, all his moves should carry over with little to no alterations required. This is great news for HOTS players, as we've been waiting quite a while now for the next Overwatch hero to drop.
That is, according to a new SuperData Research and Unity Technologies. Which puts the mobile digital market roughly on the same level as all global box office sales. Which, is huge. And kind of sheds a new light on the whole "turn off your mobiles" racket they play before the latest Marvel Presents Superhero Movie #467. Could it be that they know their competition is closing in? And so Val Morgan and co are playing hardball? I smell a conspiracy. Someone get Alex Jones on the case.
Since the Nintendo Switch reveal in January we've known that Nintendo plans to adopt an online model similar to Sony and Microsoft's. Whereby players pay an annual fee for access to online functionality in games and other features. In a discussion with Japanese publication Nikkei, Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima stated that the company is looking a potential pricing in the range of $20-30 USD. Which would make it considerably cheaper than competing services.
