  4. eFootball PES 2020 will once again be the home of the UEFA license. FIFA 19 scored the exclusive rights to UEFA last year, but Konami has now announced that the next game in the PES series will be the official UEFA EURO 2020 videogame, as was previously the case from November 2008 until April 2018. The exclusive partnership deal means that a free downloadable content pack will be released during the second quarter of 2020, featuring the national teams’ kits, crests and players before the tournament's June start. The game will also feature all the national teams at launch. PES has also snatched the rights to both Juventus and Atlético River Plate away from FIFA 20 this year; this, coupled with the name change (the 'eFootball' is new) indicates that this will be an important PES release. Konami is also planning an esports tournament, the UEFA eEURO 2020 tournament, which will culminate in an event held in London before the finals of the UEFA EURO 2020 tournament. The press release announcing this news included a message from Guy Laurent-Epstein, the marketing director of UEFA Events SA: “We are very pleased to continue and extend our working partnership with KONAMI. UEFA EURO 2020 provides an opportunity to build an even closer working relationship, allowing us to activate it in new and exciting ways, and to engage with our mutual fans around the world.” Jonah Lygaard, the senior director of brand and business development at Konami, also had this to say: "Our teams have pulled out all the stops to secure the biggest and best licenses possible for eFootball PES 2020; quality licenses that match the level we set each year when it comes to gameplay. The partnership with UEFA and the EURO 2020 tournament is a big win for our community and new users who look for fresh content throughout the year.” eFootball PES 2020 will release on September 10 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

  5. Dragon Quest Builders 2 has received a substantial free update, extending the game's ending and giving players more options and save slots. The update is live now and available to download. The update gives players a third save file, as well as a third storage slot for Buildertopia islands. There are numerous tweaks across the board, but the most substantial addition is the new epilogue content, which follows on from where the game's story ends. It will let you check in on various characters from the adventure, if you want to see what they're up to. The full list of changes and additions introduced in this update is below. New "Where are they now?" story content has been added for certain characters who appeared in the main scenario The number of Buildertopia islands that can be stored at one time has been increased to three The number of save slots has been increased to three New hairstyles have been added to the dressing table A new plant growth option has been added to the Settings menu The cursor speed for the Buildnoculars can now be adjusted from the Settings menu Five new items have been added that can change the weather on certain islands The number of rooms that exist on an island will now display when the game is paused The speed of the animation when learning a recipe using gratitude points has been adjusted The action of waving the war banner after the game has been completed has been adjusted An arrow indicating the direction that certain objects will face now displays before they are put down Other miscellaneous fixes In her 8/10 review of Dragon Quest Builders 2, Heidi Kemps praised it as "the sort of game that you'll intend to play for a little while, only to find that hours have flown by once you manage to actually put it down." The game is available on Switch and PS4. View the full article
  6. Pokemon Go developer Niantic has rolled out an assortment of bonuses to reward players for completing all the Global Challenges during the recent Pokemon Go Fest event in Yokohama, Japan, but there are still more rewards on the way. Because players managed to clear all of the Global Challenges from this year's three Go Fests, Niantic is releasing a variety of Ultra Bonuses in the game soon, and they include the return of several Legendaries--as well as the first appearance of some brand-new Pokemon. The Ultra Bonuses will be released in waves over the next several weeks. First, from September 2-9, some Pokemon originally from the Johto region will appear in the game. During that week, players may hatch Unown letters U, L, T, R, and A from 10 km eggs, and the Legendary dogs Entei, Raikou, and Suicune will return to Raid Battles. On top of that, players will have a chance to find Shiny versions of Sentret and Gligar in the wild. The next set of Ultra Bonuses will be available from September 9-16. During that time, some region-exclusive Pokemon like Farfetch'd, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, and Tauros may hatch from 7 km eggs, and those who are really lucky may hatch their Shiny forms. All five forms of the Mythical Pokemon Deoxys will also appear in five-star Raid Battles. To help you challenge it, Pokemon that are effective against Deoxys will appear in lower-tier Raids. The final wave of Ultra Bonuses, which will be available from September 16-23, will introduce the first Gen 5 Pokemon to Go. The Gear Pokemon Klink will appear in Raids, and players will have a chance to encounter Shiny versions of it, Patrat, and Lillipup. On top of that, Mewtwo that know Psystrike will appear in five-star Raid Battles, and you'll have your first chance to catch a Shiny Mewtwo. In addition to those three waves of Ultra Bonuses, all players will be able to undertake a new Special Research questline that leads to an encounter with the Mythical Pokemon Jirachi, and any Pokemon eggs placed in Incubators over these three weeks will hatch in half the time as normal. You can read more details about all of the Ultra Bonuses on the official Pokemon website. View the full article
  7. Gears Pop!, the mobile spin-off of the Gears of War series, is launching just ahead of Gears 5. It's out on August 22, and reimagines the Gears world with Pop Vinyls and a new gameplay style. It's an arena battle game, and it'll be free-to-play. While it might not resemble the classic Gears gameplay, Xbox fans should be happy to know that the game will contain achievements, letting you nab a total of 1000 Gamerscore if you log into your Xbox Live account through your phone. It joins the likes of Minecraft and Microsoft Solitaire Collection as a rare mobile title that you can earn Xbox achievements on. Here's the full list of achievements you can earn, and how many points they're worth. And, yes, there's a ridiculous 'Seriously' achievement in Gears Pop!, as is series tradition.

  8. GameStop has announced that over a hundred employees have been laid off. These job cuts hit multiple divisions throughout the company, ranging from corporate headquarters to Game Informer magazine. "As part of the previously announced GameStop Reboot initiative to transform our business for the future and improve our financial performance, we can confirm a workforce reduction was implemented impacting more than 120 corporate staff positions, representing approximately 14% of our total associate base at our company headquarters as well as at some other offices," GameStop wrote in a statement to GameSpot. The Reboot initiative was implemented after GameStop failed to sell itself in 2018, though the company has continued to struggle in the growing digital gaming market. The company has put a greater emphasis on used games and pop culture collectibles sales, but both seem to only be slowing GameStop's descent, not stopping it. "While these changes are difficult, they were necessary to reduce costs and better align the organization with our efforts to optimize the business to meet our future objectives and success factors," the statement concluded. "We recognize that this is a difficult day for our company and particularly for those associates impacted. We appreciate their dedication and service to GameStop and are committed to supporting them during this time of transition." Unfortunately for several members of the Game Informer staff, the layoffs impacted them as well. Of the 19 full-time members on the editorial team, seven have announced on Twitter that they have been laid off--managing editor Matt Bertz, senior editor Imran Khan, senior associate editor Kyle Hilliard, senior associate editor Jeff Marchiafava, associate editor Suriel Vazquez, associate editor Elise Favis, and associate editor Javy Gwaltney. If you're looking for talented writers and editors to join your staff, consider reaching out. All seven deserve to continue doing what they did for Game Informer. "I am trying to get things right with my people," Game Informer editor-in-chief Andy McNamara tweeted. "I love Game Informer, its people and its readers more than any corporation could, and I will address all the issues when I can, but for now I need to focus on my GI family." View the full article
  9. Ubisoft's historical fighting game For Honor is once again free on PC, but this time you'll only need Uplay to claim it. The offer is only available until August 28, so act fast if you still haven't picked it up. Get For Honor (PC) for free here First, you do need a Uplay account. After you've signed up, all you need to do is go to the Ubisoft Store website and click the "Get It For Free" button. It'll ask you to either launch or download Uplay, and once the launcher is open, For Honor will be redeemed to your account. Then it's just time to install it, and you're off to the races. For Honor is currently in Year 3 and has seen the release of the Black Prior and Hitokiri classes. Two more are set to release by the end of the year. Ubisoft supports For Honor with regular events, new items, and more. The Marching Fire expansion released last year. It added the Chinese Wu Lin faction, the fourth after the game launched with Knights, Samurai, and Vikings. The Wu Lin faction consists of four classes: the Dao blade-wielding Tiandi, Guando heavy Jiang Jun, hook sword-equipped Nuxia, and staff-swinging Shaolin. Prior to the Wu Lin, Ubisoft spent its first year after release adding several new classes to the Knights, Samurai, and Vikings. These included the Shinobi, Centurion, Gladiator, and more. In our For Honor review, GameSpot's Matt Espineli said, "[For Honor's] fundamental tenets of discipline and restraint are bestowed upon you permanently, forever changing the way you perceive a melee-combat encounter in a game. In its highest moments, For Honor is difficult to put down." He added that those who take the time to dive deep into For Honor's combat "will be rewarded with some of the most satisfying multiplayer melee fighting conceived in recent years."

  11. Activision has just shared on Reddit new details about the 2020 Call of Duty esports season and what to expect. Here’s the details from Activision, shared to Reddit today: This weekend, the Call of Duty World League season wrapped another stellar season with eUnited capturing the ultimate prize: The Call of Duty World League Championship. Congratulations to all competitors and thank you to the teams, players, and staff members from all over the world who helped make this past season so special. Looking ahead, Call of Duty professional esports will begin to transform into a city-based franchised league with teams around the world. Today, we outline below some of the roster construction parameters set forth for all teams in the new city-based league as they begin to develop their pro player rosters. This information was also shared in person with pro CWL players last month. ​ PRO TEAM ROSTER CONSTRUCTION IN 2020 The process set forth below is designed to foster competitive balance within the league; to provide players with the opportunity to compete regularly during the season and to promote player development at all levels of competitive Call of Duty; to provide the best Call of Duty players in the world with the opportunity to compete in the new city-based league if they so choose; to provide players with the flexibility to sign with any team in the new league on fair terms; to incentivize investment by team owners in player development in competitive Call of Duty outside of the new city-based league system; and to incentivize team investment in the Call of Duty Path to Pro amateur program and player pipeline development generally; and to provide team owners with fair compensation for their investment in player development. Below is a summary of key roster construction points for aspiring Call of Duty esports players, as teams in the new league begin to build their rosters in the coming weeks and months: ​ The next season of Call of Duty esports for Pro Players will begin in 2020. Pro match play will be 5v5 Multiplayer team versus team competition, played on console. The rules may include midseries substitutions. The minimum pro roster size per team is 7; the maximum pro roster size per team is 10. An Open Signing Window for all pro players begins September 3, 2019. This means that any player may negotiate and sign a new contract with any team in the league at this time. For the avoidance of doubt, players who are currently under contract with an existing organization remain subject to the terms of that contract while they negotiate new league contracts. Existing Call of Duty World League organizations who are transitioning into the new league as a city-based team will have the ability to sign players who are currently on their 2019 CWL rosters to new contracts 8 days earlier than any other organization beginning August 26. All players will be required to sign a new form contract in order to be eligible to compete in the upcoming league. Contract negotiation is between a player and teams. The League Office will not advise players or teams in contract negotiations. All pro players in the league will receive a minimum base salary of $50,000 USD per year, health care benefits, and retirement benefits. Teams are required to distribute at least 50% of their prize pool earnings to players directly. All pro player contracts will be guaranteed contracts; thus, any team that drops a player from their roster without cause is required to pay out that player’s remaining salary. All teams may offer their players housing in the form of a suitable place to live or cash stipend but are not required to do so. If a team does not offer housing, it must submit a plan to the League Office detailing how it will assist its players in finding housing during the season. The League does not require that players live in the cities they represent. Teams are responsible for coordinating and acquiring any visa paperwork required for players to compete around the world. The League Office will support teams and players in this process as needed. Teams may send up to 2 pro players from their roster to compete in the Path to Pro events held throughout the season. Teams may contract up to 4 total pro players to have 2-way contracts at a given time. ​ For current Call of Duty esports players who are under existing contracts that extend through January 2020: Existing Call of Duty World League teams that are transitioning into the new league will have the right to match a competing offer made to a player on their current roster from another team in the new league. The matching period will be limited to a maximum of 7 days from the date of the initial contract submission to the league. All Call of Duty World League teams will have the ability to negotiate a contract buyout fee to be paid by the team in the new league. Buyout fees carry no set minimum and are capped at 100 percent of the player’s salary in the new league plus any applicable guaranteed bonuses. The right to match and buyout fees are subject to any contractual limitations on such fees that the player has negotiated in the player contract with the Call of Duty World League team. Player trades among teams in the pro league may take place through majority of the 2020 season. ​ PATH TO PRO: ONLINE & OPEN BRACKET TOURNAMENT COMPETITION RETURNS IN 2020 We recognize the importance of a thriving Path to Pro competitive scene in Call of Duty esports, which has continued to garner strong participation and prizing each year. Going forward, we will support and administer extensive amateur competitions, both online and via open bracket tournaments in cities around the world, with dedicated prize pools. More details about the path to pro system and upcoming open bracket tournament events will be shared in the coming months. The future of Call of Duty Esports is bright and builds on a strong legacy of competitive excellence. We are committed to supporting our incredible player community, teams, fans, and partners in its next chapter. The post New details on 2020 Call of Duty esports Season announced appeared first on Charlie INTEL. View the full article
  12. Continuing its years of significant growth, Path of Exile developer Grinding Gear Games has revealed the next major update coming to the free-to-play action-RPG. In the upcoming Blight expansion, players will take on a questline that introduces a new tower defense mode, yielding even more loot to outfit your characters with. This new update follows a set of other new expansions in the past year that have overhauled a significant part of the game, introducing new events and storylines for players to take part in. Just before its reveal, we got an early look at the new content, which releases on September 6 for PC, and on PS4 and Xbox One September 9. The Blight update introduces a new storyline involving an NPC named Sister Cassia who tasks players to repel the encroaching corruption that's taken root across the world. To fight off these waves of monsters, you'll need to construct complex machines to help stem the tide. According to the developers, the intent of these Blight encounters is to offer players a chance to take on bite-sized events that can open up access to better loot. The reward for clearing these fights are items called Oils, which can buff existing gear and produce new items for your character. As is tradition, the new expansion will also introduce a new suite of quality-of-life changes. These include revamps to the Atlas of Worlds questing system, new class and skill tweaks, and several fixes focusing on league play. Following the reception from previous expansions, the developers wanted to focus more on letting players experience the game at their own pace, and take on events in the order they want. Here's a quick rundown of all the key features in the Blight update: Blight League: The new expansion will introduce a new NPC named Sister Cassia, who allows players to access the new Blight Encounters. These events will focus on tower defense style gameplay against new monsters. Players can also acquire special Blighted maps, which open up access to new higher-end areas with greater rewards. Revised Atlas: The Atlas of Worlds update will receive some upgrades once again. In the Blight expansion, players can now interact with Masters in the player hideout. Furthermore, new Master missions are available for players to dive into. Gear Enchants: A new item set to appear in Path of Exile are the Oils, which can imbue existing gears with specific properties. Combining oils can even produce new equipment, such as rings and amulets. Class Changes: Certain player-made archetypes are seeing something of a revamp. For instance, the Necromancer archetype will now allow for greater control of your minions. Furthermore, the Shadow class' Saboteur archetype will have its mine skill altered to allow for greater control. Following several expansions, and the PS4 launch, 2019 has been an excellent year for Path of Exile. The Blight update looks to be another fun event to take part, which continues to surprise with what the action-RPG can offer. The developers stated that they plan to reveal more of what's to come with the free-to-play game at the upcoming ExileCon event in November. View the full article
  13. Grinding Gear Games is set to launch the next Path of Exile expansion, Blight, on September 6. While all leagues add new things to the game, this new offering gives players some major ways to customize their characters by engaging in new mechanics. Fungal blights draw from the tower defense genre to create defense scenarios where the player is still active and essential to victory, but where charged up towers create a defensive perimeter, allowing chilling, fireballs, and more to assist players holding out against waves that follow fungal lines. Players can decide which towers to use in each instance and earn special oils that can fine tune rings and amulets. However, the big draw is for rare oils that can be used on new special sets - sets that allow you to draw from Path of Exile's immense passive sphere grid and place high-tier notable passives right on your items. These sets allow you to "break the rules" and use passives you're not even connected to, perhaps far far away on your passive tree, tapping into intense customization potential. Of course, you'll need plenty of vials and fungal events to make this happen. The blight system appears on every stage, but also extends to the map and atlas endgame system. Maps can roll as blighted, meaning the entire stage becomes one giant tower defense with potentially dozens of wave paths - a perfect opportunity to load up on expansion resources. Blight launches September 6 on PC and September 9 on Xbox One and PS4. View the full article
  14. When Cyberpunk 2077 arrives next year, it will be a single-player game - on that, developer CD Projekt Red has been clear. But what happens after that? The studio has said it has a team messing around with a multiplayer portion, after all. With CD Projekt bringing back this year's E3 single-player demo at Gamescom (enjoyable to watch a second time, but not new), my thoughts turned to what else the studio was up to - especially after the recent comments by CD Projekt Red exec Adam Kiciński confirming 40 people were working on multiplayer, not to mention some kind of early focus already on the next big Cyberpunk game, due after that. Speaking today at Gamescom, CD Projekt Red senior concept artist Marthe Jonkers told me Cyberpunk 2077's multiplayer still wasn't nailed on. The small team building it is still in R&D - and there was no pressure to force something which did not feel right. Read more View the full article
  15. Developer Robot Entertainment, creating the cute and colorful party game ReadySet Heroes, is bringing the PlayStation title to the Epic Games Store--with Sony Interactive Entertainment as its publisher. ReadySet Heroes' Epic Games Store page was spotted on Twitter. It retails for $20 USD / $29 AUD / £16 GBP and is available to pre-order now, with an expected September 30 release. Pre-ordering on the PlayStation Store--which reports the same price and release date--nets you an exclusive theme, 10 avatars, a PlayStation crown and player skin, and the digital soundtrack. It's unclear if the Epic Games Store will offer any bonuses to those who pre-order. This isn't the first time Sony has published a game for a non-PlayStation platform. Sony Online Entertainment, now known as Daybreak Game Company and no longer a subsidiary of Sony Interactive Entertainment, published the EverQuest series, the PlanetSide franchise, and DC Universe Online--all largely PC titles, with DCUO being an exception. Sony was also responsible for free-to play, puzzle-platformer Uncharted: Fortune Hunter, which is available to download on Android and iOS. Revealed during Sony's State of Play in May, ReadySet Heroes is an isometric dungeon crawler with four-player multiplayer. Two teams race through a monster-filled dungeon, with the first to reach the end facing off in a winner-takes-all showdown. Over on the Epic Games Store side, the company announced two excellent games are free on the platform. Both Hyper Light Drifter and Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden will be free on the Epic Games Store until Thursday, August 22, when they'll be replaced by Epic's next free title, Gomez. Oddworld: Soulstorm, expected to launch on PS4 and Xbox One sometime in 2020, will be an Epic Games Store exclusive on PC, with the developers tweeting out that Epic's funding helped tremendously.

  16. CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 is undoubtably the game we are going to keep hearing about until its April 16, 2020 release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. With Gamescom 2019 underway, there has been quite a bit of Cyberpunk news, including a brand-new gameplay trailer from Nvidia. Nvidia tweeted out the teaser trailer, calling it "a sneak peak" of some footage from a new gameplay demo. It's short, at just 40 seconds, but it's incredibly sweet, showcasing the breadth of Cyberpunk's Night City. There's hacking, motor cycle riding, fighting, and plenty of neon-drenched cybernetics. It's unclear if this footage is from the same gameplay demo expected to release during PAX West, and CD Projekt Red has not specified when that video will go live. Nvidia also tweeted some ray-traced screenshots from Cyberpunk 2077, a PC-specific feature supported by just a few video cards like the company's latest RTX line and the newest GeForce GTX line. Google held its Stadia Connect presentation at the start of Gamescom, where the company announced the upcoming first-person RPG will launch on Google Stadia. No release date was provided, but Cyberpunk 2077 is "coming soon" for the cloud gaming platform. While expected to have a new game plus mode, Cyberpunk 2077 will feature a harder difficulty that turns off the game's UI. In the realm of additional modes, CD Projekt Red says it is looking into multiplayer. Producer Richard Borzymowski told GameSpot that while nothing could be confirmed, the team will "think [about expansions" after game development is done. View the full article

  18. Viz Media has announced the third and final title that's being made in partnership with Rose City Games. Called Garden Story, the upcoming game is a pixel graphic adventure that stars a sentient grape who's also an aspiring knight. It looks so cute. The announcement of Garden Story was accompanied by the release of a new trailer that showed some of the gameplay and quirky characters. From a top-down perspective, you explore a variety of environments, such as quiet towns and dangerous-looking caves. In combat, you have a wooden pick that acts like a sword. You also have access to a backpack full of the items you collect, such as a dowsing rod. You're able to break certain items in the environment to gather resources as well, and it appears that Garden Story will have at least a few dungeon puzzles to solve too. "In Garden Story, players take on the role of Concord, the newly appointed village guardian," Viz Media wrote in a press release. "There's lots to keep this helpful adventurer busy; not only do your neighbors need assistance, but a mysterious Rot has also seeped into the foundations of the once flourishing island. Fortunately, Concord won't be working at this alone. Help your friends with their struggles, and they'll help you through yours. Balance caring for the environment, exploring new regions, and fostering new friendships as you solve puzzles and help restore the Grove to glory." Viz Media has had a long history of existing on the fringes of the games industry, publishing well-received manga about popular video game series like The Legend of Zelda and Pokemon. In February 2018, Viz Media announced a partnership with Rose City Games to create three manga-styled games. The first, visual-novel-meet-puzzle-battle-game The World Next Door, released in March 2019 while the second, dungeon crawler Cat Lady, is scheduled to release later this year. Currently, Garden Story has a planned release of Spring 2020 for PC. In GameSpot's The World Next Door review, I wrote, "The cast of characters is genuinely funny at times, and getting to know them has its benefits, but the story ends before most have a chance to really grow and mature. Worse, an interesting plot point that Liza introduces into the story near the game's end is never satisfyingly resolved. The combat portion has similar shortcomings. Though the puzzle battles are frantic bouts of fast-paced fun, the most interesting enemies and bosses are introduced in the latter half of the game, leaving combat in the first two dungeons too simple. Ultimately, there's enjoyment to be had with The World Next Door, but the game takes too long to start leaning into its strengths." View the full article
  19. Apple unveiled its gaming subscription service, Apple Arcade, back in March 2019. While it's expected to roll out sometime this fall, reports are now circulating that Apple Arcade could cost just $5 USD / $7 AUD / £4 GBP per month. 9t05 Mac uncovered the alleged pricing, which includes a one-month free trial, in a promotional message hidden within an App Store API. Apple has yet to comment on the matter, but 9to5 Mac reports that Apple Arcade will feature Family Sharing as well. With the supposed price unconfirmed, there's a possibility it could change ahead of Apple's September 10 event, where the company is expected to announce new iPhones. Apple has been testing its Arcade service on company employees, offering the subscription for just $0.49 USD per month. The extremely cheap price is only for Apple employees and will reportedly last until iOS 13 becomes available for everyone. Apple Arcade will be accessible on Apple TV, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Mac computers. With Apple's various continuity features, you'll be able to transfer between devices. The new gaming subscription service is said to launch with 100+ games, including Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm, Team Sonic Racing, Where Cards Fall, and more. View the full article
  20. Since Pokemon Black and White on the DS, competitive Pokemon players have been able to take part in online competitions and view their rankings via the Pokemon Global Link. While the website has served as the online battling hub for all subsequent Pokemon games, The Pokemon Company has confirmed the upcoming Sword and Shield for Switch will not be utilizing it. According to a statement posted during Gamescom 2019, Sword and Shield will not support the Pokemon Global Link website. This is because most of Global Link's functionality is being folded into the games' themselves via the Battle Stadium, which will allow players to participate in regular online competitions and take part in Ranked battles. "For Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, services equivalent to the current Rating Battle and Online Competitions are planned to be supported. However, PGL will not support Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield," the statement reads. "These battles and Online Competitions can be enjoyed in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield using just the connectivity features of Nintendo Switch." Other Global Link functions, like the ability to view your ranking, will also be implemented in Pokemon Home, an upcoming cloud storage service that will allow players to store monsters from Pokemon Bank, Pokemon Go, Pokemon Let's Go, and Pokemon Sword and Shield. Pokemon Home is expected to launch for Nintendo Switch and mobile devices in early 2020. Pokemon Sword and Shield, meanwhile, release for the hybrid console on November 15. Players will need to have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription in order to make use of the aforementioned online features. The Pokemon Home service will presumably also require a subscription, although it hasn't yet been announced if this will be included as part of NSO or will be offered separately. In addition to the Global Link news, The Pokemon Company shared a new gameplay clip of Pokemon Sword and Shield. The video shows off one of the quaint towns players will visit on their adventure across the Galar region. We also recently learned about some new Pokemon Abilities and held items being introduced in the titles. View the full article

  22. With Gamescom 2019 in full swing, announcements are trickling out at a steady pace. Prolific anime game publisher Bandai Namco has unveiled a trailer for One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows, which shows new gameplay mechanics and characters. Alongside series regulars Saitama, Genos, and Speed-o'-Sound Sonic, S-Class heroes Terrible Tornado, Silverfang, and Atomic Samurai are joining the game's roster. These three characters bump A Hero Nobody Knows' roster to 13 playable characters. It's unclear what the final roster count will be. Saitama is known to defeat enemies with one punch, and the new trailer shows how his overbearing strength is used in-game. A Hero Nobody Knows implements some sort of Hero Arrival mechanic, where you must survive while Saitama makes his way to the battlefield. In the trailer below, Saitama is running on the left-side of the screen with quite a distance to go. Performing combos and perfect guards reduces his arrival time. Matches seem to become one-sided when he gets there, as Saitama absorbs a lot of damage and defeats everyone with one punch. One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows was announced back in June 2019. No release date was provided, but the 3D fighter is "coming soon" to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. View the full article
  23. Another update has arrived for Fortnite. Content update 10.10 is now live across PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices, and it adds a new throwable item to the popular battle royale game, along with a new type of consumable. Here are the patch notes. First up is the Junk Rift, a new Epic rarity item. When thrown, it'll create a Rift in the sky that will rain cars, statues, and other large debris down on opponents, damaging players and destroying objects caught in its path. The Junk Rift drops in stacks of two and can be found as floor loot or in chests, supply drops, and supply llamas. On top of that, this week's content update introduces Glitched Consumables, which have begun appearing after the Rift Beacon at the Rec Center exploded. These items can be found near the explosion site and randomly change into different foraged consumables, such as apples, coconuts, and mushrooms. The Glitched Consumables are also capable of turning into some previously vaulted items, such as Season 4's Hop Rocks and Season 6's Shadow Stones. However, the latter have been temporarily disabled in the game due to an issue. You can see all of the other changes in this week's content update for Fortnite's Battle Royale mode below, while the full patch notes can be found on Epic's website. Fortnite: Battle Royale 10.10 Content Update Patch Notes Weapons & Items Junk Rift A throwable item that breaks on contact and spawns a large object in the sky that plummets to the ground.

NOTE: Players have 30 days from their next login to redeem this refund. View the full article
  24. Cyberpunk 2077 might wind up with a New Game Plus mode, but CD Projekt Red is still figuring out what it might be. That's contrary to a previous report that a post-game replay mode was in the works. "What I can tell you is we are looking into a suitable idea for implementing New Game Plus," producer Richard Borzymowski told GameSpot at Gamescom. If and how has yet to be seen and talked about." Borzymowski went on to explain that the most important thing about adding a New Game Plus mode to Cyberpunk is making sure it's the right implementation of the idea for the game. CD Projekt's upcoming open-world sci-fi RPG will likely have some means of encouraging you to play beyond the end of the story, Borzymowski said, but the developer hasn't decided what form it'll take. In Cyberpunk, much of what you experience depends on the character you create--their backstory and upbringing dictates some conversation choices, for instance, and the skills you develop dictate which paths you can take through missions. That means the character you make through the course of the game determines what portions of the game you see and what portions you don't. "Let's go with the two most basic approaches to New Game Plus, or whatever," he said. "Complete example: either you finish the story and you're left in the open world, or you can start a new game with the character you've previously developed. With the first approach, in our case, the benefit of replaying or playing more is that there are many, many activities. I presume that most players will first finish the story rather than do everything there is because that's pretty time-consuming. The other approach basically funnels you into one of the playstyles, right? So we're looking for a way to ensure that you're able to keep your progression, but are you still able to take a different path in order to see one of those parts that was hidden behind one of those actual choices. And we will probably get to something, but it's too early to talk exactly how, because we want to make sure that it fits [Cyberpunk]. Everything we want to do, we want to fit." Reports previously suggested Cyberpunk 2077 would have a New Game Plus mode, but that it might not be ready for the game's launch in April 2020. CD Projekt added a New Game Plus mode to The Witcher 3 after its launch as a free update.
