As part of recent financial call, Michał Nowakowski of CD Projekt Red, answered a question relating to the possibility of Cyberpunk 2077 being released on additional platforms - including PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett. The answer wasn't an exact confirmation, but it's safe to assume that it's coming but probably not at launch.
Speaking with friend of the site, and all-round wonderful site, Stevivor, Xbox head Phil Spencer laid it out pretty honestly when it came to the potential VR-capable aspects of the company's next-gen Xbox Scarlett console.
When NVIDIA launched Quake II RTX it was a showcase for just what a comprehensive lighting overhaul can do for what is a fairly old title at this point. With ray-tracing implemented for global illumination, shadows, reflections, and anything that glows - it's a stunning transformation. And also one that just got a pretty massive update.
(In my best Attenborough voice.) Bees are incredible creatures, they help spread so much of the natural world we know, on their tiny wings and caked in their signature yellow and black hair. But, bees are in danger of dying out, and this is something we all need to bee made aware of, because without bees, life as we know it would drastically change. Entire ecosystems rely on their work-a-day lives, and education around this is of the utmost importance. (Now in my own voice.) So developer Varsav Game Studios has looked to videogames, with Bee Simulator...
With Square Enix prepping to release the first part of its ambitious Final Fantasy VII Remake, comes word that both players and fans can expect to find some new faces thrown into the mix. Although these wont come in the form of main characters, director Tetsuya Nomura notes that it came from fleshing out Midgar.
Right, so to a lot of people that headline might sound like gibberish but for those that have been following the tech that will drive both the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Scarlett you'll no doubt be aware of the move away from traditional hard-drives to faster SSD (solid-state) solutions. And in a surprise revelation Samsung has revealed that it's working on an NVMe M.2 SSD for the "SSD era in game console".
Developer Nowhere Studios' Circadian City is a life-sim built in a 16-bit open-world where you begin each day cooking breakfast, eating and then heading out to do numerous activities, from making friends to flirting for a chance at love -- there's no limit to how you can live your life in this unique take on the sim genre.
But you absolutely do. Literally coming into our inbox this evening, from Indie studio Tomula Games, this gem of a concept had me giggling all the way to the cyber mechanic shop with glee. Just think about an in-your-face over-the-top game centred around augmenting clients with cybernetic parts for whatever cyberpunk world they all live in, then dial the cheese and potential awesomeness up to 10011001101100110.
The latest gaming headset from Turtle Beach, definitely surprised us. Not only in-terms of its subtler than usual visuals design (compared to some of the turtle Beach range from years gone by), but in how it feels far more premium than its asking price. From a rugged design to excellent sound quality and brilliant software customisation - the Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Aero wireless headset could be the right choice for you.
The seemingly indomitable Call of Duty has enjoyed a resurgence through the reimagining of the game that put the series on the mainstream map, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and a new update is now available for free, for all platforms.
Borderlands 3 has been out in the wild now for a while, and today a new patch from Gearbox has been released which is set to address bugs via hotfixes, balance, optimisation while also adding new features and content.
And we're getting the vibe that moving forward, the Darksiders series, which has enjoyed(?) a tumultuous past, is going to expand on this open-world/dungeon-crawling new focus we're seeing with Darksiders Genesis, because it's already looking like an absolute winner. And recently, THQ Nordic and developer Airship Syndicate dropped an all-new gameplay trailer.
Developed by Quake community and mod veteran Jeremiah “KillPixel” Fox and published by 3D Realms, WRATH Aeon of Ruin is a retro shooter that doesn't go quite as far back as say Ion Fury (with that game built on the old Duke Nukem 3D engine). As per the developer's pedigree, its shotgun is aimed at a more polygon-based yesteryear.
With the release including both the Rise & Fall and Gathering Storm expansions in a full featured Civilization VI bundle for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This marks the series long-awaited return to Sony and Microsoft consoles, since the underrated Civilization Revolutions. A streamlined Civ that we'd love to see make a return in some form.
With Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite seeing Vault Hunters take on what is being described as "a serious challenge" in a new Raid-style mission that disables respawns as players destroy a top-secret Maliwan weapon.
