Good news for anyone who has Battlefield friends spread across multiple platforms: Dice plans to build and test cross-play for Battlefield 2042 so people on different platforms can play with and against each other. Unfortunately, this also means that the technical, closed alpha test will be postponed until later this summer.
During this test, they will test the cross-play functionality, and a few thousand players will be invited to play against each other on PC, Xbox Series X / S and Playst
After several delays, Amazon's MMO project New World will launch its beta test today, but some concerns based on leaked information from the alpha test remain. Players who alpha tested the game in May announced that Amazon planned to add a store with "premium currency" to the game.
There they would not only sell cosmetic items, but also "boost items" that, for example, can make it faster to level up their character - something that is common in free to play games, but rarely welcomed in gam
EA Play Live did not offer much new, but there was some talk about Battlefield 2042, including the new game mode that will be officially unveiled on July 22. We know we'll get to play on classic Battlefield maps, but Dice does not want to reveal more about the experience itself before the unveiling.
Rumor has it that it will be called Battlefield Hub and that it will be remastered maps with classic vehicles and weapons, but which will be played with Battlefield 2042's Specialist system rath
Red Dead Redemption 2 is to get support for DLSS next week, along with new content for Red Dead Online, where a series of new missions are based on St Denis. By the way, you have not missed that you can buy the online part separately for around $20 (currently 50% discount on Steam).
So if you want to crank a little extra graphical detail out of the cowboy adventure while sustaining the FPS, this might be it for you.
Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong should have been released sometime this year, but a new trailer reveals that they have decided to postpone it until February 2022.
The trailer focuses on one of the game's three playable characters, Galeb. He does not seem to be the most humble person in the world, which is perhaps understandable when one is one of the oldest and most feared vampires in the city and also sits on a fortune as well as immortality.
Swansong is an RPG where we get to cont
Ubisoft confirms the initiative Assassin's Creed Infinity, and a close collaboration between the Ubisoft studios Montreal and Quebec, which will blur the studio boundaries.
Ubisoft wants Assassin's Creed to be more "integrated and collaborative". It should be less about different studios, more about individual developers.
Before Ubisoft confirmed Infinity, the initiative was rumored earlier today to be a "live online service"; a platform for future Assassin's Creeds. This according to
Those who played Apex Legends yesterday may have noticed a strange message called "Save Titanfall". The message appears in playlists and notifications, and many report that they can not join any other playlists than the hacked one. The playlist in question is also broken, so affected players have not been able to play at all.
The message in question points to a website where the motivation for the action is described in more detail. The person or persons behind the website - the hacker clai
Many consider Tie Fighter to be one of the best Star Wars experiences when it comes to flying around space and shooting down enemies. But considering that it was released almost 30 years ago, the graphics may not be as aweseome as you remember it. However, there is rescue in the form of a incredible ambitious mod that has transformed the entire campaign in a more modern guise. This total conversion was released last Friday and also offers a reinterpretation of the original adventure. We just hop
A rewrite of the game code significantly relieves the processor.
Microsoft Flight Simulator is one of the best games I've played, but it's also really resource hungry. Update 5, which will be released on July 27, seems to come with a real increase in performance.
In a stream on Twitch, Sebastian Wloch from Asobo Studios says that they rewrote part of the game's code and thus managed to lower how much CPU power it needs. The whole thing is demonstrated with a game round over New York wi
Los Angeles has got a new game developer whose goal is to create a great RTS game for PC. Uncapped Games is the name, and on the team are Blizzard veterans with extensive experience from the Starcraft series - a suitable background given the level of ambition, writes Games industry. Behind the new studio is the giant Chinese company Tencent.
David Kim, now lead game designer and former participant in all three Starcraft 2 parts, says that for many years he wanted to make a new RTS game, but
Dan Houser, along with his brother Sam, is the founder of Rockstar Games. After working with GTA V, Bully, Red Dead and L.A Noire, among others. Last year, he chose to leave Rockstar. We did not know then why, and still do not know, but now Houser seems to have opened a new studio.
The Twitter account Rockstar Mag notes that Houser is the head of British Absurd Ventures In Games, which is based in Chesire. The company was registered on June 23. And ... we do not know more than that at prese
A short but promising teaser was enough to make role-playing game fans crave Avowed, Obsidian's role-playing game that takes us back to the Pillars of Eternity world, but now in 3D and from a first-person view.
We have not seen anything since last year and when Avowed missed this year's E3, there were probably some who were disappointed. However, Obsidian has promised to show something "soon". It's the game they've always wanted to make and Xbox top Phil Spencer wants it to be the studio's
River was the dog that became Dogmeat, the iconic puppy in Fallout 4. This weekend, River's owner and best friend, Joel Burgess, was forced to say goodbye to her. River was the "base" for Dogmeat, Burgess says in a Twitter thread. The Fallout 4 team had "countless meetings" with River, which was largely about hanging out with her. In time, they began to view Dogmeat as a friend.
Finally, Burgess argues, for many, Dogmeat is something loving about Fallout 4, which always wants you well. And
Casey Hudson left Bioware at the end of 2020 after almost 20 years with the established developer. Since then he has not made much noise, but now we know what he has been doing and what is to come.
Via Twitter, he begins by saying that he works with colleagues on something really cool that he unfortunately can not reveal more about. What he can talk about, however, is that he has founded a new gaming company called Humanoid Studios. It is said to be built to unleash the creative power of de
I didn't even know it existed...
It was a very short journey for Magic Legends, an action role-playing game with MMO elements that has been in development for a couple of years. It is based on Magic: The Gathering and in March this year an open beta was released. But it will not last - the servers will shut down on October 31, and thus the game's story is over before it even begins.
Magic Legends would have been released this year, for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The development is managed
During this year's E3 week, we got our first glimpse of Swedish Massive's Avatar game, Frontiers of Pandora. The trailer was certainly nice. Now Massive is releasing a small video where they talk about how their Snowdrop graphics engine will drive the seemingly gigantic open world game. They do not go into any extreme technical details, but it is always interesting to see a little of what happens behind the scenes.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will be released in 2022 for Playstation 5, Xbo
Next week, June 30, the next-gen patch for the game will be released, which means that owners of Greedfall can upgrade to crispy 4K at no extra cost. Also: higher fps, faster load times and save files that can take the step over generation locks. June 30 also means the release of the expansion The De Vespe Conspiracy, and it is not free, however. Although, it is included in the game's "gold edition", where you can also get posters, three lithographs and stickers if you buy the physical edition o
Next week, the next patch will be released for Outriders, and in addition to fixing the login system and various bugs, it will also come loot change. Players have long complained that it takes too much grinding to get legendary equipment, and that will change.
People Can Fly announces that drop rates for legendary items will be increased by 100%, and they will also get rid of the level restrictions that meant that certain legendary items could only be obtained from enemies in a certain leve
One of last summer's best games was the PS4-exclusive Ghost of Tsushima. Before the anniversary in July, the box have gotten a small uplift. The changes are not big, it's the same picture. But they made sure to include the Playstation Studios logo and a red info box about the co-op multiplayer Ghost of Tsushima: Legends. But something is missing...
For some reason, the "Only on Playstation" logo is removed. Since Sony has since last year released both Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone on PC,
Cyberpunk 2077 is again available on the Playstation Store. The role-playing game was removed from the online store shortly after it was released in December 2020 because it was too technically inferior.
At the same time, developer CD Projekt Red warns that users may still experience performance issues, not least for the Playstation 4 version, and recommends that users run the game on a Playstation 4 Pro or a Playstation 5.
Sony also writes that Cyberpunk 2077 is not recommended to run
After Dice and EA finally unveiled Battlefield 2042, players have had a craving for games with a bit of future touch - BF4 was released in 2013, but takes place in the then so mysterious and semi-futuristic "2020".
Thus, many are now rushing to BF4 (at least in the US), so many in fact that EA has been forced to increase server capacity. In a statement, EA's community manager writes that the company is pleased with the attention:
"We were absolutely blown away by your excitement and re
World Update V: Nordics means graphics updates for Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland. 100 airports and 78 "points of interest" have received a overhaul, and five airports (Arlanda, Danish Bornholm, Norwegian Svalbard, Finnish Vaasa and Ísafjörður in Iceland has received extra care and specific landing challenges. The update also includes five "bush trips", which will highlight Nordic nature from its best side.
The update can be downloaded for free for anyone with access to the ga
Fallout tends to focus entirely on the United States, and a group of modders want to change that. The first real trailer just came out for a very ambitious project called Fallout: London, which will be a mod for Fallout 4 in DLC size.
As the name suggests, it takes place in the British capital, and includes attractions such as Tower Bridge and Buckingham Palace. Of course, this is not a life-size London, but the designers say that the city is about the same size as the Commonwealth in vanil
Already at the unveiling we could report that in Battlefield 2042 you will be able to play against and with bots. And that you actually level up even in this game mode. These AI-controlled soldiers will also be able to fill up teams in "regular" matches if it's about people, which can be thankful even if they are rarely the best recruits.
"Also new is the introduction of AI Soldiers (Artificial Intelligence) to the series. As a multiplayer-only experience, it's important for us to let you p
Swedish Avalanche Studios gave a first look at their upcoming game Contraband during Microsoft's E3 show. What we saw, however, left a bit to be desired, but we did find out things that sound quite interesting about the game. Contraband will be a new co-op adventure in an open world where players must work together to exercise various coups and grab riches. Judging by the teaser trailer, it feels a bit like it will be a Just Cause-like game set in the 70's with heists from GTA. And it really do
