Resident Evil 8 Release Date Possibly Revealed

A new rumor has revealed a potential release date, or at least a potential release month, for Resident Evil 8 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC. The latest rumor about the heavily-rumored game comes way of a prominent industry insider, Dusk Golem, who has been at the forefront of rumors, reports, and leaks about the next installment in the popular and long-running survival-horror series. According to the insider, Resident Evil 8 is set to release worldwide sometime during January 2021. However, the leaker also notes that this date may change or may have already changed due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has been impacting development teams across the world and resulting in numerous game delays.

As the industry insider notes, while the game was previously planned to release i...

Ubisoft Is Giving Away 3 Great Games for Free

Ubisoft is currently giving away not, not two, but three great games for free, including the best entry in the long-running and popular Assassin’s Creed series. No, not Assassin’s Creed Origins or Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, but Assassin’s Creed II. In addition to the apex of the Assassin’s Creed series, the French games maker is also giving away Rayman Legends for free, one of its highest-rated games of the last 10 years. Lastly, the publisher and developer is also giving away Child of Light. All three games are currently 100 percent free to download, however, there are some catches.

For one, the games will only be free until May 5. If you download any of the three games before May 5 though, they are yours to keep. These are NOT free trials, they are free downloads...

Cities:Skylines

CITIES: SKYLINES GETS A STEALTH MASS TRANSIT OVERHAUL IN SUNSET HARBOR

The next DLC for Cities: Skylines is called Sunset Harbor, and as the name suggests, it features a whole bunch of new aquatic features – but that’s just a fraction of what’s in the expansion. The meatier parts of the update include a host of additional transportation features to help you build a more robust mass transit system.

Sunset Harbor comes to Steam (and consoles) on March 26 for $14.99 / €14.99. The titular features let you expand your city’s commerce by building a fishing industry with both fishing boats and fish farms. If your city is lacking in water sources, new water treatment plants will let you convert waste water for “additional uses.” (Just don’t think too hard about where it’s been.)

The DLC also expands bus options, with intercity buses to tran...

Cross-play support coming to Black Desert Online on PS4 and Xbox One

Black Desert Online players on consoles will soon be able to play together.

Pearl Abyss, the developers of MMORPG Black Desert Online, announced today cross-play is coming to the game on PS4 and Xbox One March 4.

Released on consoles last year, the game is currently celebrating its fourth anniversary in North America and Europe.

The MMO is known not only for its lovely visuals and a skill-based combat system, but for having one of if not the best character creation features around.

Anyway, it’s nice to see another game implementing cross-play between platforms, which means you’ll have all sorts of others to play with.

Ubisoft reveal massive changes to Rainbow Six Siege esports

Amid the reveal of Operation Void Edge and the Rainbow Six Siege Year 5 reveal, Ubisoft has also revealed some exciting changes to the format, structure, and sustainability of its flagship esports title.

For starters, Rainbow Six Esports is making a concerted push towards better regionalisation. For many years now the different competitive regions of Siege esports – EU, LATAM, NA, and APAC – have been treated in broadly the same way, which creates lots of issues for regions like APAC where huge distances between teams makes scrimming very difficult. APAC is now being split into two divisions in order to address that issue with Japanese, Korean, and Southeast Asian forming a single, highly competitive, online league of 12 teams, while a separate division is formed in the Oceanic region...

Cyberpunk 2077 Devs Comment on Possible Nintendo Switch Port

Cyberpunk 2077 is not only going to be one of the most ambitious and technically demanding games released this year, but of the entire generation. It’s shocking to think the ol’ PS4 and Xbox One will be able to even run the game. That said, despite the massive resource demands of the title, Polish developer CD Projekt Red isn’t entirely writing off a Nintendo Switch port.

As you may know, CD Projekt Red did — somehow — bring it’s ambitious and massive 2015 open-world RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, to the Nintendo Switch recently (with the help of Saber Interactive). In other words, if there are video game development wizards out there who could get Cyberpunk 2077 running on the Nintendo Switch, it would be the pair of European developers.

“I don’t know if Cyberpunk 2077 would work on ...

Modern Warfare Season 2 Details and Content Revealed

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 2 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC doesn’t kick off until February 11, but before that happens, it appears developer Infinity Ward and Activision have leaked Season 2’s content early over on the game’s official website. And according to the website, we won’t be getting a battle royale mode, or if we are, it’s not advertising it. What we are getting is Ghost, two new guns, and a bunch of Battle Pass filler content.

More specifically, the website confirms that Ghost will be a new Operator, and will be instantly available for anyone who cops that Battle Pass. Meanwhile, there’s also two new guns being added to the game: the Grau 5.56 (lightweight, maneuverable and full of potential) and the Striker 45 (hard-hitting and long-range SMG)...

EA Teases More Switch Games Are Coming

During the Electronic Arts earnings call, management shared an update on the company’s stance on supporting the Nintendo Switch. So far, EA has only released 5 games on Switch, including FIFA 18, FIFA 19, FIFA 20, Unravel Two, and Fe. But looking ahead, can fans expect more releases on Switch.

EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said EA has been “very pleased” with “how well Nintendo has done with the Switch.” Nintendo just recently announced that the Switch has passed 52.48 million units sold, which is a very strong start for the system that launched in 2017.

The executive said EA is “always” discussing ideas with Nintendo for future game support. “As the platform grows, our interest in developing for it grows,” Jorgsensen said.

Jorgensen went on to say that EA has been cautious thus far with supp...

A new Silent Hill movie is in the works

The original director of 2006’s Silent Hill film is developing two new horror game-to-film projects for the big screen.

Director Christopher Gans is working on a new addition to the Silent Hill franchise, he revealed to the online publication Allocine. The upcoming fim will focus once more on a cult in a small American town ravaged by puritanism.

Also in the works is a film adaptation of Project Zero – better known in North America under the title Fatal Frame – which, like the original game, will take place in Japan, according to Gans.

“I have two horror film projects with [producer] Victor Hadida,” the director told the French-language film news site. “I am working on the adaptation of the video game Project Zero. The film will take place in Japan...

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Trailer Features New Gameplay

Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7 Remake is coming out later than expected but there’s no stopping the hype train. A new trailer has released featuring the game’s theme song “Hollow” composed by Nobuo Uematsu. But even if the song doesn’t appeal to you, there’s tons of gorgeous cutscenes and gameplay to witness.

From the terror that is Shinra’s president to the Honey Bee Inn and Cloud’s transformation, the trailer also showcases Red XIII for the first time. Oh and Sephiroth is also around, having a fitting “reunion” with Cloud. In terms of gameplay, we see AVALANCHE on a mission to rescue Aerith from Shinra.

If that weren’t enough, we get to see Jenova in all her glory as well...
