  3. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is still going strong several months after release, but a recent major update, which added wet suits, swimming, and new NPCs, also broke one part of the game. Players have reported that zen bridges built on the highest level of their islands could no longer be crossed after the update, which is quite the bother. Thankfully, update 1.3.1 has patched this issue, so you'll no longer be trapped on one side of the bridge. Some other issues have been addressed, too, including an issue that prevented wet suits from appearing in Nook's Cranny for sale. Here are the four changes introduced in this patch: Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article

  6. The developers of Gears 5 have introduced a major change to how you unlock new content in the game, and the update comes just a few months before the game is made playable on Xbox Series X. Through the new Operation 4 update, Gears 5 has "completely revamped" how new content is unlocked, developer The Coalition said in a blog post. The studio acknowledged that the earlier system, which included elements called "scrap" and "supply" was too complicated and, in some cases, didn't allow you to acquire the content you actually wanted. Those two elements, along with the Totem system that was how you unlocked new characters, have been removed from Gears 5 in favor of a streamlined system.

  9. Recently, Twitter users raced to get banned from the US Army Esports official Discord server, with the influx of users causing the server to shut down completely to new users. Now, with the Discord server still unreachable, people have taken to the US Army's Twitch chat instead, Vice reported. During a stream on Wednesday night where Green Beret Joshua "Strotnium" David played Call of Duty: Warzone, esports personality Rod "Slasher" Breslau posted a video of him getting banned after asking about war crimes. Breslau discovered that the Army had automatically moderated the phrase "war crimes" after attempting to ask "whats your favorite us war crime?" After changing it to "whats your favorite u.s. w4r cr1me?" Breslau then linked the Wikipedia page for United States war crimes, a tactic also used by users speedrunning bans on the Army's Discord, and was banned moments later. After the video was posted to Twitter, other users decided to join in on speedrunning bans in the Twitch channel by mentioning US war crimes. Some cited grievances with the use of Twitch as an Army recruitment tool, while others protested the 2019 ruling that banned transgender people from serving in the military.

  11. As part of GameSpot's summer gaming extravaganza, we sat down with Madden NFL 21 producer Sean Graddy who spoke to us about what's new in this year's professional football game from EA Sports.

  14. Remothered: Broken Porcelain, one of 2020's big upcoming horror games, has been delayed. The game, which showed off debut gameplay footage and announced an August release date just last month, will now arrive on October 20 instead. In an update on publisher Modus Games' website, community manager Luke Croft has announced that developer Stormind Games is delaying the release to "deliver the experience you deserve." As with many recent delays, COVID-19 is to blame: "Having additional time for polish and to accommodate unanticipated longer timeframes due to the current global situation will help us do exactly that." As Croft points out, this means the game will now launch closer to Halloween, which is fitting. It will now launch on the same day as Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga--a game it shares little in common with. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  15. Psychonauts 2 developer Double Fine was acquired by Microsoft in 2019, and it turns out that the buyout had a major impact on the company's newest game. Double Fine founder Tim Schafer told GI.biz that when his studio was acquired by Microsoft, it allowed the developers to bring back content for Psychonauts 2 that would have otherwise been left on the cutting room floor. "With Psychonauts 2, we could see the end of our budget coming up, and so we had cut a lot of stuff," Schafer said. "We had cut our boss fights. Now we are able to put those back in, and we're like, 'We think people would have noticed if we didn't have those boss fights'. Being able to complete the game in the way that it was meant to be was very important." Psychonauts 2 was initially funded on Fig, where it raised more than $3.8 million USD, before the Microsoft acquisition. The game, which was announced all the way back in 2015, is now due to launch later in 2020 following a delay. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  16. Borderlands 3 has received a hotfix, detailed on the game's official site, to address an issue in Bounty of Blood and with the Legendary pistol Lucky 7. This quick fix has dealt with two issues, but Gearbox has admitted that there's a bigger problem that was introduced into the game with a recent update. Here are the two changes in the hotfix, which is now live on all platforms. The first one is, presumably, a reference to a clipping issue. Patched a hole in the Atrium of the Bounty of Blood campaign add-on to prevent players from busting through the wall and seeing the other side Addressed a reported concern that some damage effects from Lucky 7 sometimes did not function after exiting Iron Bear The other issue Gearbox has identified is perhaps a bigger deal, but how it will be addressed might depend on how a change that was made by accident is received by players.

  17. World of Warcraft has historically charged players to change their avatar's gender, but that is set to change with the new expansion. Right now, it costs $15 to change your character's gender, but Shadowlands will remove this charge entirely. In an interview with Eurogamer, executive producer John Hight has talked about this mechanic, and promised that in the future you will be able to change your gender along with your appearance at the barber shop. "As we were adding things up in Shadowlands, we realised, 'Gosh the only way you can change your gender in World of Warcraft is to go through this paid service,'" he says. "And we felt like that's not the right message." This change will not arrive until the next expansion does, as it's difficult to implement. "That's not something we can easily hotfix - unfortunately we can't do that right now," Hight explains. It's not clear if this feature will be added for all players, including those who don't buy the expansion, with the Shadowlands update--but hopefully this will be the case. This answer came from a question Eurogamer posed about Pelagos, a character discussed in a July 2 Blizzard forums post who many believe is Blizzard's first transgender character. According to Hight, it's likely that other characters designed in-house at Blizzard are trans, even if it is not explicitly stated in-game: "knowing some of our designers and having conversations with them, I'm sure that was the intent." Here are some more insights from GameSpot's own interviews with World of Warcraft game director Ion Hazzikostas.

  18. The release of Halo 3 on PC on July 14 also marks the start of Halo: The Master Chief Collection's Season 2--and there's a lot of new stuff coming to the game very soon. Developer 343 Industries spoke at length about the Season 2 update and Halo 3 on PC as part of a lengthy developer livestream today. Starting off, Season 2 will usher in a lovely looking new main menu screen for MCC. It shows off some iconic weaponry and vehicles from Halo 3, and it scrolls through different images if you hover over the page. You can see a still from the new menu screen below. For Season 2, MCC is getting over 100 new items, and these include things like weapon skins, visors, vehicle skins, and nameplates to customize your look in the game. Vehicle skins will be available in Halo CE, which is notable because it's the first time the game has ever had vehicle skins in its 19-year history. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  19. After years of waiting, Microsoft will finally show off Halo Infinite during the Xbox Series X first-party showcase on July 23. Now, developer 343 Industries has begun to set expectations for the event. In a blog post, 343 said fans can look forward to the "first look' at Halo Infinite's campaign. "We're excited to share what the team’s been working on--the first look at Halo Infinite's campaign is coming on July 23!" the developer explained. The wording here seems to suggest that the July 23 event will focus on Halo Infinite's campaign as opposed to its multiplayer component. That's probably a bummer for some part of the fanbase, but it makes sense that Microsoft would want to hone in one on component of the game at the start. Presumably the multiplayer reveal is being saved for a later date. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  20. During tomorrow's recently announced Paper Mario: The Origami King-focused Nintendo Treehouse Live stream, WayForward is unveiling its new project, which is in a franchise that's new to the developer. The careful wording in the announcement has fans on social media speculating WayForward could be creating the next entry in another developer's existing franchise. The announcement says, "Plus, we'll feature a first reveal and gameplay for a title in a franchise new to developer WayForward." The wording has led fans to speculate a wide range of games it could be, with three of the most prominent guesses being a new Metroid game, a Zelda 2 remake, or a new Wario Land game. For a taste of the speculation, check out the replies to the original tweet. Nothing outside of the interesting wording suggests it is anything as high profile as people are guessing. Founded in 1990, WayForward has a long history with platforming and action titles including the fan favorite Shantae series and the Mighty Switch Force franchise. The July 2020 edition of Nintendo Treehouse Live, which is primarily meant to showcase gameplay of the upcoming Paper Mario: The Origami King, begins tomorrow, July 10 at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET. To tune in to the stream, head here. [Source: Nintendo of America on Twitter] View the full article
  21. Nintendo has announced a new livestream for tomorrow, July 10. While it's not a new Nintendo Direct, the company will show off a couple of titles as part of its Nintendo Treehouse Live broadcast, which is scheduled to begin at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Specifically, Nintendo says it will broadcast gameplay of the upcoming Paper Mario: The Origami King, which is set to release for Switch next week. On top of that, the company will reveal at least one new title from developer WayForward, the studio behind the Shantae series and other beloved 2D adventure games. What's most curious about the game reveal is the wording Nintendo used to describe it. The company says the game will be "in a franchise new to developer WayForward," which seems to suggest that whatever the studio is developing is part of an already-established IP that it hasn't worked with before. What that could be remains to be seen, however, and Nintendo hasn't shared any other details beyond that. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  22. Team Rocket balloons have begun appearing in Pokemon Go, giving you a new way to battle the villainous group, and the team's most infamous duo have joined the fight. Jessie and James, Ash's recurring antagonists from the Pokemon animated series, have arrived in Pokemon Go, giving you a chance to challenge them. True to form, Jessie and James can be found piloting a giant Meowth-shaped hot air balloon. The duo will appear randomly in the game and only for a limited time, so there's no telling when you'll encounter them. If you do spot their distinctive balloon, however, simply tap it to initiate a battle with them. Coinciding with their debut, new avatar items inspired by Jessie and James have been added to Pokemon Go's in-game shop, letting you dress your trainer in their signature Team Rocket uniforms. The second weekly set of Pokemon Go Fest challenges also arrives this week, and this one focuses on battling Team Rocket, making Jessie and Jame's appearance quite timely.

  23. Less than a month after The Last of Us Part II's launch, developer Naughty Dog is looking to fill multiple positions at its studio, with one role specifically scouting for a single-player Level/Environment Designer. The job listings on Naughty Dog's career site run the gamut from animators to programmers to lighting artists and everything in between. While it's unclear if Naughty Dog is working on a new project, a job post for a Tools Programmer confirms the studio is looking for someone to "work on our next-generation graphics analysis, profiling and debugging tool in conjunction with our sister technology group." If Naughty Dog is working on another game already, it seems likely it will arrive on PlayStation 5. Another listing for a Melee/Gameplay Animator says this hire will "help us create compelling gameplay for our future project(s)," with work possibly including "helping shape the hand-to-hand combat system" and more. It suggests that whatever Naughty Dog is prototyping may be some sort of action-adventure experience. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  24. The Sony Corporation has agreed to make a strategic investment of $250 million to acquire a minority interest in Epic Games. The strategic investment is aimed at broadening the collaboration between Epic Games with its entertainment platform and digital ecosystem, and Sony with its portfolio of entertainment and technology. Epic Games is not only known as the developer of the wildly popular Fortnite, but also the owner of the Epic Games Store. However, perhaps most beneficial to companies wanting to collaborate with Epic is Unreal Engine, a powerful real-time 3D creation platform. In addition to being one of the most prominently used engines in the video game industry, Unreal Engine has also been used in television and film making, with properties like The Mandalorian using it for special effects. “Epic’s powerful technology in areas such as graphics places them at the forefront of game engine development with Unreal Engine and other innovations," Sony chairman, president, and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida said in a press release. "There’s no better example of this than the revolutionary entertainment experience, Fortnite. Through our investment, we will explore opportunities for further collaboration with Epic to delight and bring value to consumers and the industry at large, not only in games, but also across the rapidly evolving digital entertainment landscape." “Sony and Epic have both built businesses at the intersection of creativity and technology, and we share a vision of real-time 3D social experiences leading to a convergence of gaming, film, and music," Epic Games founder and CEO Tim Sweeney said in that same press release. "Together we strive to build an even more open and accessible digital ecosystem for all consumers and content creators alike.” The most recent version of Unreal Engine, Unreal Engine 4, released in 2014, but has received continuous updates to this year. Epic Games showed a tech demo of Unreal Engine 5 running on Sony's PlayStation 5 earlier this year. Epic Games expects Unreal Engine 5 to release late 2021. View the full article
  25. Twitch has received backlash on Twitter after sharing a Black Lives Matter video that featured very few Black streamers. The video, which Twitch has since deleted, featured mostly white streamers, primarily DrLupo, talking about Black Lives Matter. Twitter User @2leftjoycons reuploaded the video. Twitch followed up with an apology stating that the video was supposed to be focused on allyship, a message Twitch said it "didn't make clear." People took issue with the video promoting the message of supporting Black Twitch streamers without showcasing and promoting more of them. BlissKai and ZombaeKillz, two Black Twitch streamers featured in the video, expressed their feelings on Twitter. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
