And is the first project from new Melbourne-based studio Summerfall Studios, headed up by David Gaider (ex-BioWare) and local industry veteran Liam Esler. Where it gets immediately interesting is that Chorus is a planned musical adventure, where dialogue, choice, and confrontation all happens through song.
And to hit all three you'll need an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER which will allow for high-fidelity in addition to real-time ray-traced shadows as part of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's RTX implementation. Activision has also released recommended specs for ray-tracing - which detail include a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 at a minimum.
Where the global phenomenon from Melbourne-based studio House House that is Untitled Goose Game winning both Game of the Year and Best Sound Design - after the indie topped the Nintendo eShop bestseller charts both locally and abroad. South Australian studio Mighty Kingdom won the prestigious Studio of the Year award - hit the jump for the full list.
After recent lay-offs, financial woes, and even run ins with the law, troubled publisher and studio Starbreeze is confident that its cash-flow problems are on the mend - based on publishing agreements and a planned Payday 3 release in 2022-2023. The studio posted a graph for the next four years of cash-flow with an almost comical exponential rise.
Looks like Quake II RTX was only just the start, with NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios creating a dedicated team that will be focused on selecting "the greatest titles from the past decades and bringing them into the ray tracing age". As per this job listing, the next ray-tracing project is already underway on a well-known but as yet unannounced title.
With the company partnering with Adi Shankar, producer of Netflix’s impressive Castlevania adaptation. Set in the over-the-top neon 1980s retro techno future first seen in the Far Cry 3 expansion Blood Dragon, so far we've got some very-Blood Dragon-y art alongside its title - Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Vibe.
With the game currently down, players and viewers are staring at the all-encompassing abyss that is a black hole. Those that weren't in-game when the catastrophic event occurred aren't able to log in as the entirety of Fortnite - including characters screens and lobbies - has now disappeared. Many are speculating that this will lead into a brand new map and an almost Fortnite reboot for the next season.
We reported this week about a controversial response by Blizzard towards the winner of a recent Hearthstone esports event, suspending Ng Wai ‘blitzchung’ Chung and stripping him of his prize money after he shouted support for the protests and protesters currently engaged in action in Hong Kong. Backlash for the move went, for lack of a better term "viral", and today Blizzard's president J. Allen Brack has responded to the publisher-developer's actions.
From a 90s and early naughties perspective, that is. A Knight's Quest from developer Sky 9 Games has left Kickstarter found itself a publisher and even made the jump across to Unreal Engine while also expanding its horizons beyond PC to also include PS4 and Nintendo Switch and a day later on Xbox One.
That headline only ever comes by once in a century, by my reckoning. Then again, those names only exist once in a lifetime of note anyway, so...
Tesla Force is set in the same game-universe as developer 10tons' previous outing, Tesla vs Lovecraft and features a procedurally-generated game-world filled with monsters to, ah, shoot.
Who voiced support for protestors in Hong Kong, with Ng Wai ‘Blitzchung’ Chung stating “Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our age!” at a recent Hearthstone esports event. In response Blizzard suspended Blitzchung from competitive play for a year, alongside taking away his prize money, and even going so far as to remove casters who interviewed him. From there, people took notice.
System requirements for the upcoming PC release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare have been revealed, and just like those we got for Red Dead Redemption 2 moments ago, the storage requirement is rather large. 175GB large, meaning that at the very least the download and install time will be several hours.
With Rockstar giving us our first look at Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC - arriving November 5 - the PC specs and hardware requirements reveal that the game will require 150GB of storage space. Yeah, pretty hefty. And kind of a huge deal when you factor in SSD sizes. Hit the jump for the requirements, screens, and some new info.
With The Division 2 - Episode 2 'Pentagon: The Last Castle' arriving October 15 (for Year 1 Pass holders), as the next major content update for the game. The story is set to continue with The Black Tusk now up to no good inside the Pentagon, bringing with it new missions, a new specialisation/class, assignments, and several updates and improvements. Hit the jump for details.
The Game Drive for Xbox from Seagate, with storage capacity of 2TB, is something that has become a mainstay in our setup. The only downside being that with so many games installed, there are so many game updates. Too many. But anyway, following on from the equally cool Gears 5 edition Seagate are now prepping a slick Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Game Drive.
Parents might get that play on words in the headline, but for those it's lost on, schools and private institutions now offer "code-cademy" for kids. Basically a class designed to make the rest of us north of 40 redundant as human beings. And Ubisoft has now bought in to the switch, utilising those pesky Rabbids.
