  1. Free-to-play games can live or die by the quality of their cosmetic content, and Riot's new shooter Valorant is no exception. In a recent blog post, the team behind Valorant revealed how it develops the game's premium skins. According to the post, the process begins with a brainstorming process to determine the fantasy and genre that the weapon skin promotes, from sci-fi to high fantasy. However, the team sticks to a number of core rules, chief among them that the skin's unique visual effects and animations are only seen by its owner in first-person. The developers also take great care to ensure that the outline and shape of the specific weapon is still recognizable, for the sake of fair competition. Since the skins in Valorant have unique animations for headshots and reloads, playtesters sample the skins in order to make sure that they aren't too distracting for the user.

  2. The Last of Us Part II will be the focus of Sony's next State of Play stream, scheduled to take place this Wednesday May 27 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 10 PM CEST. The stream will feature a deep-dive on gameplay mechanics seen in previous showings of the sequel, with Naughty Dog vice president and The Last of Us Part II co-director Neil Druckmann narrating the footage. Although a lot of the stream will give context to gameplay that's already been shown, there will be around eight minutes of gameplay for a brand-new area of the game, too. The State of Play stream is expected to be around 20 minutes long in total, similar to the most recent stream for Sony's other upcoming PS4 exclusive, Ghost of Tsushima. And in case you were wondering, Sony makes it very clear in the announcement of this State of Play that there will be no mention of the PlayStation 5.

  3. The Division 2 will undergo a short maintenance on Tuesday, May 26, starting at 12:30 AM PT / 3:30 AM ET. It's expected to last for three hours. According to the patch notes, this tiny update will stomp out some of the game's bugs, including a mission-breaking issue and one that prevented players from earning progress on Global Event challenges. In other Division 2 news, Ubisoft recently released the delayed Update 9.1. That patch focused on overhauling the game's NPCs, which the developer deemed too powerful in certain situations. The game's upcoming Title Update 10 is now live on The Division 2's Public Test Server, but only on PC. This new update will make several big changes to the game, including buffing most of the game's weapons and adjusting the drop-rate for high-tier loot to make the game's stouter difficulties more rewarding. The Division 2 Patch Notes Fixed an issue that prevented players in a group from earning progress on Global Event Challenges from their allies for some challenges. Fixed an issue that caused the doors during "Break Through the Black Tusk Forces" to not open during the DARPA Research Lab Main Mission. Fixed an issue that caused Burn and Bleed status effect icons to not be displayed above NPCs. This needs to be verified during the maintenance and we will keep you updated tomorrow.

  5. A user on Reddit, r/BlackOps4, has shared what appears to be the very first footage of gameplay from the canceled campaign mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which released in October 2018, was the first Call of Duty game to not have a traditional campaign mode, instead opting to have three online-based modes. Treyarch insisted throughout the year that they really didn’t have plans for a campaign and were focusing on an online connected experience for Black Ops 4, but many reports and sources described the campaign as being too ambitious and canceled because of issues with development. On Reddit, a user has shared about two minutes of alpha footage of the gameplay of Black Ops 4’s campaign. The campaign, in alpha-state footage (meaning its not complete), had a very similar HUD to the MP experience of Black Ops 4. The user claims that the campaign and MP were supposed to be connected, and that’s why the HUD is so similar. The gameplay starts by showing a message of “FIND THE AQUILUS CEO.” Here’s the gameplay footage: The user who posted this has not said where they got this gameplay footage as of now. He said he only has this footage, alongside an augmented footage of the engine of BO4, which he is not releasing at this time. The post Gameplay from Black Ops 4’s canceled campaign mode revealed appeared first on Charlie INTEL. View the full article
  6. Premier League football club Manchester United has filed a lawsuit against Sega and Sports Interactive, the publisher and developer respectively of Football Manager. The football club is unhappy with how its name, badge, and overall trademark has been used in the game without its consent, despite appearing in Football Manager for decades. According to The Guardian, Manchester United's attorney is also seeking to add player-made mods to the lawsuit, in light of how it claims Sega and Sports Interactive encourage players to use them to recreate clubs in the game. In a counterargument, Sega claimed that the lawsuit by Manchester United intends to “prevent legitimate competition in the video games field by preventing parties not licensed by the claimant from using the name of the Manchester United football team within such games". It also argues the validity of a lawsuit that seeks to prevent the use of the name "Manchester United" in any context without the authority of the trademark holder.

  7. Breaking from longstanding tradition, the next round of PlayStation Plus freebies will begin before the new month even starts. PS4 users will be able to grab one of June's free games, Call of Duty: WWII, starting tomorrow, May 26. The second freebie will be announced later this week, and we imagine it will go live on June 2, the first Tuesday of the month. Developed by Sledgehammer Games, Call of Duty: WWII originally released in 2017 and brought the series back to its original World War II-era setting for the first time since World at War in 2008. Call of Duty: WWII is particularly known for having a strong single-player campaign, which clocks in around six hours. The online servers are still live, and while they aren't extremely active, you can expect the player count to tick up since far more people will have access to it on PS4. In addition to the campaign and traditional multiplayer playlists, WWII also has a fun narrative-focused War mode with unique maps and lengthy attack/defend objectives. The strong package earned the first-person shooter a 9/10 in our Call of Duty: WWII review. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  8. PlayStation has announced that a Call of Duty game will be FREE with PlayStation Plus for PlayStation 4 players in June. The company has announced that the 2017 release of Call of Duty: WWII will be one of the PlayStation Plus FREE games for the month of June. Players on PlayStation 4 who are PS Plus subscribers will be able to download and play Call of Duty: WWII for FREE starting Tuesday, May 26 from the PlayStation 4 store.

  9. For nearly 20 years, Frogwares has been the premier developer of games based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. Following the release of 2019's The Sinking City, an open-world adventure game inspired by H.P. Lovecraft, the developer jumped straight to work on its follow-up--this time bringing their most well-known character back to his roots in a large setting to explore. In an exclusive with GameSpot, the developers at Frogwares have revealed that is developing and self-publishing Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One, a prequel that will focus on the early exploits of the gentleman sleuth. Set for release in 2021 for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and next-gen consoles, Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One takes cues from The Sinking City, bringing players into an explorable open-world city filled with characters to meet, disguises to wear, and mysteries to solve. Set in the early years of the detective's career, the game casts you as a 21-year-old Sherlock Holmes who returns to his Mediterranean island hometown following his mother's death. After reacquainting himself with the island, his family manor, and the enigmatic companion Jonathan--who is definitely not Watson--he'll discover that the town has got some secrets, and he'll use his budding yet still brilliant detective skills to uncover a larger conspiracy at work. Before the reveal, I spoke with Frogwares producer and community manager Sergey Oganesyan and lead feature designer Yaroslav Martyniuk about what's to come in the next Sherlock Holmes game. As a prequel, Chapter One is set many years before the detective's other cases in games like Crime and Punishment and The Devil's Daughter. Similar to Batman: Year One, Chapter One reframes the early years of the detective and his world, doubling as a prequel to the narrative arc from Frogwares' previous Sherlock games, and a gateway for newcomers to jump into the series.

  10. Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, an updated version of one of the best RPGs for the Wii, releases on Nintendo Switch this Friday, May 29. Whether you're planning on diving in for the first time or revisiting the modern classic in its updated form, you should take a look at the pre-order deal at Amazon. Right now, you can pre-order Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition for $49.94, which is a savings of $10. See at Amazon This is the same price Walmart was selling the Definitive Edition for, but Walmart is currently sold out.

If you already placed your pre-order at Amazon at the full $60 price, you'll get the discount thanks to Amazon's pre-order price guarantee. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  11. Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, the 2019 fighting game featuring the sentai warriors from the hit series, is expanding with three new characters. A third season of DLC has been announced with a trailer, and while only two fighters have been properly announced, it's pretty clear who the third one will be. The trailer below shows off Robert “RJ” James and Lauren Shiba, but the comments below the video have uniformly identified the third character, shown in silhouette, as Scorpina, a long-time villain in the Power Rangers mythos. The first content from this pass should drop towards the end of June, and in addition to the three extra fighters, anyone who buys it will also receive a new Phantom Beast King character skin for Dai Shi and a Samurai Megazord ultra. This follows several other updates and DLC packs for the game. In February, the game received online lobbies, and previous DLC fighters have included Lord Zedd and Eric Myers. As of March, Battle for the Grid was available through Xbox Game Pass. It's also on Switch, PS4, and PC. View the full article
  12. In 2019, the head of Bayonetta developer Platinum Games, Atsushi Inaba, said he was not all that impressed by the next generation of consoles from Sony and Microsoft. He said they offered "more of the same," and those comments led to some debate and discussion. Inaba has now clarified his comments, telling Video Games Chronicle that his original words led to "a little bit of backlash" and the perception that he was a snob. Inaba now says he's excited by the fact that the new consoles will allow developers to "do more" as it relates to graphics and technology. However, he stands by his estimation that the leap from the PS4/Xbox One era to the PS5/Xbox Series X era won't be as dramatic as the shift that occurred years ago during previous console transitions. "If you think back to the generation between Super Nintendo and PlayStation, and how we went from pixel art to 3D polygons… nobody could have ever imagined that a few years prior," Inaba said. "When that stuff started coming out people were just blown away: they weren't ready for it, they weren't anticipating it… it was just so new." Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  13. LittleBigPlanet developers Media Molecule released their latest game Dreams for the PS4 in February, and now they're looking for help to refine the game's VR features, Video Games Chronicle reported. The testing positions are open to European players, and while the company hasn’t specified what it's looking for in a tester, the application form asks about location, availability, previous testing experiences, and which devices you have available. Testers will have to sign an NDA if accepted for the two-week process, which involved a preliminary briefing, two weeks of reporting based on short periods of gameplay, and a debrief session. Participants will be paid £200 (around $250 US) at the end of the testing period. Applications are now open for the limited positions here. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  14. The evidence that 2020's Call of Duty game is a Black Ops title continues to mount. It's now been discovered that the battle royale game Warzone was recently updated with another Black Ops easter egg. In one of the map's buildings, an RCXD--which is a popular killstreak from the Black Ops series--can be clearly seen sitting on a table. You can check out some images in the embedded tweet below. This follows from the recent discovery that Warzone's Bunkers can now be opened, and at least one of them contains another Black Ops-related tease. Bunker 11 was discovered to contain a nuclear warhead. Sources told Video Games Chronicle that this very warhead will be used in the game to change the map and give it a Cold War theme as a tease for the new mainline release. Players have also discovered a Cold War-era spyplane in Warzone by glitching through walls. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  15. This year's Sonic the Hedgehog film was one of the final blockbuster movies released in theatres before the COVID-19 shutdown. The movie was a big success, surpassing Detective Pikachu to become the highest-grossing video game movie of all-time in the United States. Sonic Studio's chief brand officer, Ivo Gerscovich, has now commented on the success of the film and how it's shaped the Sonic brand overall. Gerscovich said in a Reddit AMA that the movie helped re-invigorate the Sonic series and help it become even more relevant. "The success of the film has positively impacted many areas of the brand from bringing in a new generation of fans to reaching fans in places all over the world that may not be as accessible for us alone," he said.
