  1. Outriders, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X game from the developers of Gears of War: Judgment and Bulletstorm, is getting a monthly video series. Titled "Outriders Broadcast," the monthly program will deliver news and information about the game, which is due for release later this year.

    Episode 1, titled "Built for the Core," will release on Thursday, May 28 at 9 AM PT. It will focus on Outriders' gameplay features, environments, character classes, and special abilities, featuring insights and commentary from the developers at People Can Fly. You can watch a teaser for the episode below.

    In a statement, People Can Fly creative director Bartek Kmita said the studio came up with the idea for a video series to respond to the current climate.

  2. Riot's new team-based shooter Valorant is nearing the end of its beta, with only a few days of downtime before its full release. A new blog post from Riot has discussed this transition, and what differences beta players will find upon release--most notably with its Vanguard anti-cheat system.

    When developing its new online FPS, Riot chose to take a hard stance on cheaters and griefers, with the cornerstone of this decision being the launch of its own proprietary anti-cheat software. When the closed beta of Valorant released with this software, Vanguard, it immediately caused concern among players for being far too aggressive in blocking drivers--even when the game wasn't active.

    Thanks to the closed beta, Vanguard's powers have been scaled back, but one big change is in the works when it moves to full release. For the duration of the beta, while Vanguard was used to identify cheaters, those reports were still manually reviewed and ban decisions made by a human team (with this process still resulting in thousands of bans).

  3. The Division 2's latest update, Title Update 10, was rolled out to PC players on May 22 as Ubisoft welcomes feedback from the community via the Public Test Server (PTS). The most recent State of the Game stream on May 21 touched on the quality-of-life changes that players can expect when the update officially rolls out, and also marked the Hill League, the last competitive league of Season 1, going live.

    As per the official Division 2 Twitter account, players who own a copy of the game on PC will be able to access Title Update 10 before everyone else. They were able to preload the Title Update 10 patch after the Ubisoft livestream on May 21, with the PTS available for access since May 22.

    According to the official Title Update 10 notes from Ubisoft, the priority for this upcoming content is going to be "game health and generosity". Players with access to the PTS will be able to experience a number of changes involving weapons and gear sets, including the removal of purple loot at higher difficulties and buffs to pretty much all weapons. Title Update 10 will also incorporate changes to PvP weapon damage, bug fixes, and improvements to loot drops from Veteran and Elite opponents.

  4. News of foul play has hit the Formula E esports racing scene. Daniel Abt, racing under ABT Schaeffler Audi, was disqualified after cheating allegations against him were substantiated over the weekend.

    Suspicions were raised about whether or not Abt was actually the driver behind the wheel for Saturday's Formula E Race at Home Challenge, with his competition being the first to raise the red flags. Fox Sports reported that two other racers, Jean-Eric Vergne and Stoffel Vandoorn, echoed each other's concerns about Abt when his performance in the Challenge appeared markedly different from previous results.

    The organizers of the Formula E Race at Home Challenge investigated the allegations from Abt's competitors and after cross-referencing IP addresses, were able to confirm that the esports racing driver had not been driving at the time in question.

  5. Cloudpunk, the neon-heavy cyberpunk taxi game from Ion Lands, is getting a first-person mode. The game, which is available now for PC and will come to Switch, PS4, and Xbox One in the future, will allow players to explore and collect fares from a new perspective soon.

    This new camera option was announced and previewed on Twitter by Marko Dieckmann, studio head at Ion Lands. You can see the new first-person camera in action below.

    In a follow-up tweet, Dieckmann stated that players will be able to switch between first-and-third perspective as they play, depending on their preferences. You'll also be able to unlock the camera after this update.

  6. Call of Duty: Mobile has a battle royale mode, but it's not quite the same as Call of Duty: Warzone. In particular, Call of Duty: Mobile doesn't feature Warzone's most unique and exciting features, the Gulag. It seems that's going to change very soon. Or it could be something else entirely.

    The official Call of Duty: Mobile Twitter account posted a teaser video for what is very clearly the Gulag. The tweet says it's "coming soon."

    This alert was posted not long after the Call of Duty: Mobile test servers were updated with references to the Gulag. Additionally, entire gameplay videos have been posted on YouTube that appear to show that Gulag will be a new map in Call of Duty: Mobile.

  7. Suda51's games have long been synonymous with Nintendo consoles, with each game in the No More Heroes franchise debuting first on Nintendo (including the upcoming No More Heroes III), and cult classic Killer7 originally debuting on the GameCube. As of right now, not many of games developed by his company, Grasshopper Manufacture, are available on Switch, and the eccentric designer says he would like to see that change--although it's not all up to him.

    In a Q&A session during Momocon--as reported by VG247--Suda51 (whose legal name is Goichi Suda) talked about the possibility of bringing his older games to Switch, saying that it is largely up to the publishers. Capcom is in charge of Killer7, which received an updated PC port in 2018. Killer is Dead has split rights between Capcom and Kadokawa Games, which makes things more complicated.

    Suda51 singled out another game as a more likely candidate--The Silver Case, which came to PS4 and PC in 2016 (and its sequel, The 25th Ward: The Silver Case, followed in 2018). According to Suda51, there has "been discussions" about bringing this game to Switch.

    He also alludes to a potential remake of the 2001 PS2 game Rain, Flower, Sun, and Rain, although specific platforms were not discussed.

    No More Heroes III will launch as a Switch exclusive later this year. Other Switch games from Grasshopper Manufacture include Sine Mora EX and Travis Strikes Back: No More Heroes.

  8. The new podcast series featuring former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has announced its next guest, and it's none other than current Xbox boss Phil Spencer.

    Spencer will joins Fils-Aime and journalist Harold Goldberg on the "Talking Games with Reggie & Harold" podcast. In a news release, the podcast's producers said Spencer will chat with Fils-Aime and Goldberg about leadership, the pandemic, the Xbox Series X launch, and Spencer's "early days" at Microsoft.

    Spencer started as an intern at Microsoft all the way back in 1988, and he's been with the company ever since. He's held various positions at the company, most recently getting promoted to head of Xbox where he oversees the entire Xbox division and reports to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. Spencer is also known for being outspoken and frank, so he certainly seems like a great podcast guest.

  9. Derek Kolstad, best known as the writer of the John Wick film series and the creator of the character and world he occupies, is preparing to pitch TV adaptations of two video games. In an interview with Comicbook.com, Kolstad has revealed that he's working on pitches for shows based on My Friend Pedro and Bendy and the Ink Machine.

    Kolstad says that he named these two projects because, "literally, I have these Post-It notes on my computer of, 'This is what I'm working on today.'" He's also attached to numerous other film projects, including two remakes with David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, the co-directors of the original John Wick--A Company Man with Leitch, and A Map From Nowhere with Stahelski.

    My Friend Pedro is a 2019 side-scrolling action game celebrated for its stunt-heavy gameplay; it received a 7/10 in GameSpot's review. Bendy and the Ink Machine is a 2017 first-person horror puzzle game that sports a vintage cartoon aesthetic. Both are smaller titles with a lot of style, and both are pretty strange--which makes them interesting choices for adaptation.

  10. Not long after one Call of Duty: Warzone squad set a new world record with 121 kills in a single game of Quads, that record has fallen.

    Popular streamer Vikkstar set the record with three teammates from the FaZe Atlanta professional Call of Duty team: Cellium, aBeZy-, and priestahh. At the start of the video, Vikkstar acknowledges that the world record is actually higher, but he claims the other squad did so by creating new accounts that allowed them to matchmake with lower-skill enemies.

    Vikkstar also confirmed that, for this new record, there were 136 players in the Warzone lobby--out of a possible 150. His team was able to get 138 kills because nearly half of players who are killed once are able to respawn through the Gulag system, while teammates can also buy players back. In total, there were 285 kills during the match, so his team got nearly half.

  11. Activision is honoring National Military Appreciation Month with a new piece of DLC for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the battle royale game Warzone, as well as a real t-shirt you can buy.

    The new DLC is called the Call of Duty Endowment Fearless Pack, and all proceeds of the $10 add-on will go to Activision's charity that helps military veterans find careers after leaving the service.

    The Fearless pack contains 10 items, and the offering was created in partnership with Captain Florent "Flo" Groberg, who earned the Medal of Honor for his combat career. The DLC comes with a new operator skin inspired by what Groberg wore in combat, as well as the blueprint for an assault rifle called "For the Cause." The weapon features an engraving of the date--August 8, 2012--that Groberg attempted to stop a suicide bombing in Afghanistan. Groberg was successful in tackling the bomber, but the bomb exploded, killing four of his squad members. President Barack Obama awarded Groberg with the Medal of Honor in 2015 for his actions.

  12. Following the game's initial, limited announcement during the Xbox Series X event earlier this month, Electronic Arts is seemingly preparing to reveal Madden NFL 21 in full very soon.

    The official Madden Twitter account has posted a teaser referencing June 1, which may be when more details are announced. The tweet also contains the line, "So much more than a name..."

    Whatever this "first look" is, it will be followed by yet another EA event on June 11. That's when EA Play 2020 takes place, and with Madden 21 being one of EA's biggest games of 2020, you can expect it to be featured during the show. You can watch EA Play 2021 live on GameSpot.

  13. This is a great week to revisit some games you may have already played. Mortal Kombat 11 is getting an action-packed epilogue with the Aftermath expansion, and Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition has new story content on Nintendo Switch as well. That's not the only game making a comeback on Switch, either. 2K is launching a trio of big game bundles: BioShock: The Collection, the Borderlands Legendary Collection, and the XCOM 2 Collection. The adventure continues in Minecraft Dungeons and Shantae and the Seven Sirens too.

    Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath -- May 26

    Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch

    Aftermath picks up right where the story left off, with Liu Kang setting out to create a new timeline. A new timeline is a great place to introduce new characters, and MK 11 is adding Fujin, Sheeva, and even Robocop, voiced by original actor Peter Weller. If you don't want to spend money on the new story and characters, good news: May 26 is also when a free update drops for all players. This adds new stages and brings back Friendships.

  14. If you consider yourself an old Xbox head then you're probably going to be pleased at the fact that a fan project is aiming to resurrect the original Xbox Live experience. We're talking circa the good old pre-2010 days, when we were all trying to link up on Halo 2.

    This original Xbox Live fan project is called Insignia, and it's being developed by Luke Usher, who has been providing updates for it on his personal Patreon. Usher is based out of the United Kingdom, and is also currently working on an Xbox and Sega Chihiro emulator for Windows.

    According to Usher, Insignia is going to be free and it "will not require any modifications or patches to software" for owners of Xbox consoles. The goal for this original Xbox Live project is to have it up and running in Autumn 2020, which would be quite the get if you're nostalgic for the old days of Microsoft's multiplayer service.

  15. Some of the best Call of Duty: Warzone players in the world are participating in a new competition for their chance at $10,000. The CDL Warzone Weekend event features 48 players from 12 Call of Duty League teams, and it makes use of a special private lobby system created just for the competition.

    The event will make use of quads format, so players will need to be working together in order to come out on top for that $10,000 prize. Alongside the event, a new rewards system is entering beta, giving double XP tokens, emblems, sprays, and animated calling cards. It begins at noon PT / 3 PM ET today.

    You don't need to play the game to earn these rewards. Instead, you'll earn them just through watching live watches on the Call of Duty League website or Call of Duty companion app. Your platform account will also need to be linked to the Activision account you're using to watch.

    A new first-person perspective will shortly be added to the neon-soaked delivery game Cloudpunk, bringing you closer the sights and delights of Nivalus.

    In a brief tweet, Ion Lands' studio head, Marko Dieckmann, showed off the new feature in-game (thanks, PC Gamer).

    "You can seamlessly transition from third to first person and switch back to the original camera as well if you prefer that," Dieckmann said. "While driving you can also keep the camera unlocked if you want."

    Know your way around PlayStation 4's Dreams? Media Molecule wants to talk to you.

    In a new recruitment drive spotted by VGC, Media Molecule is looking for players to contribute to an upcoming beta for Dreams. But unlike many other similar beta tests, this is a "3-phase project" that pays successful candidates £200 for their time upon completion.

    As you might imagine, the progress is a little more involved than usual, requiring a questionnaire screener, an introductory video call in early June, a two-week diary study and then a final interview in mid-June.

  19. As the next generation approaches, both Microsoft and Sony have been outlining their respective visions for the coming years. And while upgraded hardware that pushes more triangles is always a priority in the games industry, both companies have increasingly turned their messaging toward the consumer-friendly features of the impending Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. One such highlight from Microsoft, the promise of a unified library that works across generations, could signal the way forward for the industry as a whole.

    Backwards compatibility has been a talking point for platform holders for years, but in practice, the feature has been spotty. Some generations have eschewed it almost entirely, as hardware architecture became more complex and distinct from prior generations, and this marked a stark distinction from PC where most games remain playable forever. Microsoft refocused efforts on backwards compatibility in a big way on Xbox One. After first cutting ties with the Xbox 360 library almost completely, the company made inroads with fans by announcing a major initiative to retroactively import older games through firmware updates that would increase compatibility. Nowadays, it's difficult to find a popular 360 game that isn't playable on Xbox One, and those who amassed a large digital collection in the heady days of Xbox Live Arcade can see it all waiting to be downloaded in their game library. This effort has extended to a selection of the original Xbox's library as well, giving players access to almost 20 years of games.

    A day might be coming when games are no longer thought of as tethered to a specific console.

    With the Xbox Series X, the company appears primed to take the next logical step. It has made a point of hyping its "Smart Delivery" feature, which ostensibly allows you to transfer your ownership license of a game over to a new console when you upgrade, as long as a publisher enables the feature. But Microsoft has been clear that the transfer goes both ways--if you own a game and sign in to your account on a friend's Xbox One, you can still download cross-gen compatible games you purchased on Xbox Series X. Microsoft boasts that Smart Delivery will always provide the version optimized for your hardware, which may be increasingly important if the company adopts a multi-device approach to the new generation. Xbox Series X is expected to be the first of many hardware iterations to come, and the promise of Smart Delivery is that you won't have to think about which version to buy or fiddle with your graphics settings. The software will simply know what's best.

    In the wake of successful game-to-TV adaptions of games like The Witcher and Castlevania, the creator of the John Wick franchise, Derek Kolstad, has revealed he has two more gaming IPs he'd like to bring to life for television - My Friend Pedro and Bendy and the Ink Machine.

    "I'm going out with a pitch for a television series based on the My Friend Pedro video game, as well as for Bendy and the Ink Machine," Kolstad told Comicbook. "I am playing any... It's funny, the reason I'm answering it this way, literally, I have these Post-It notes on my computer of, 'This is what I'm working on today.'"

    "To be honest, I love it all," he added. "Those are at the forefront, but at any given moment, people are jumping on the horn and we're talking The Janson Directive or we're talking Death Machine, we're talking actors with IP, sound men. I got to tell you, man, I'm still a little kid at this and I f--king love it.

    Have you ever wondered why your Animal Crossing: New Horizon airport has a green roof but your pal's roof is blue? Nope, neither have I. But it turns out that it's not just a random cosmetic feature - the colour of your airport's roof may, bizarrely, intimate the colour options available in both your Nook's Cranny and Nook Miles stores.

    I, for instance, have a blue airport. According to a new hypothesis that's popped up on Reddit, this means that, in theory, my teacup ride will be black, my lamposts are green, and my vending machine is grey. And lo and behold, they are.

    It goes further. Other items are also similarly linked, too, so if your Nook Store offers the lighthouse in blue and white strips, your swimming pool will have white tiles and your vending machine will be black.

    I have good news, Bayonetta fans. Despite the radio silence since the Nintendo Switch-exclusive third instalment of the bewitching franchise was revealed in 2017, developer Platinum Games' insists the game is still in development.

    "I'm on Twitter so I see a lot of comments every day," Kamiya told our pals at VGC. "I'm happy that there's still anticipation for the title, but one thing I would like to address is the trend I'm seeing which is people who are starting to ask if the game has been cancelled.

    "I want you guys to take any concerns you have like that and throw them out the window immediately because we're still hard at work on it and it hasn't been cancelled by any means. Please look forward to it!"

    It's an exciting time for Call of Duty: Warzone. Infinity Ward's battle royale recently opened its mysterious bunkers and kicked off an ongoing tease for the announcement of the next Call of Duty game, dubbed Black Ops Cold War.

    The bunkers are super cool and house loads of loot, including a unique blueprint, so players are putting in work to unlock them. But some of the bunkers are tricky to open. Bunker 11, for example, is closed off unless you perform a specific number of steps that involve blue phone locations, translating numbers from the Russian, visiting red phones in the right order, then trotting over to Bunker 11 north of the Arklov Peak Military Base for the spoils. (There's a lot more detail in our Call of Duty Warzone Bunkers guide.)

    That sounds like quite the effort, doesn't it? Well, clearly it's too much effort for some, as Warzone now has a bunker camper problem.

  25. When you think of AAA game development, images of designers, programmers, and engineers creating and iterating on their titles for months and years likely come to mind. The original Assassin's Creed spawned an enormous franchise developed today by thousands of people, but its side missions were actually developed in a span of just five days.

    Charles Randall--a former Ubisoft employee who worked on the first two Assassin's Creed games--shared that the original game was essentially finished when the company's CEO apparently had his son give it a try.

    He found that version of the game to be boring and didn't think there was enough to do, and the team then decided to add in side missions as a result. They only had five days to implement them, as the build they produced was going to be burned directly to discs and shipped.
