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.

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...
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)...
Back at E3 2018, Bethesda announced it was working on The Elder Scrolls 6, the next entry in its popular and long-running fantasy role-playing game series. However, at the time, it suggested the game was still very, very far away. Further, it was confirmed that its sci-fi role-playing game, Starfield, would release first. In other words, it sounded like the next installment would not hit until around the middle of 2020s. And this may still be the case, however, some new job listings suggest we may get it a tinsy bit earlier.
Over on Zenimax’s official website, Bethesda Game studios is hiring for numerous positions to help develop “bleeding-edge” RPG games for PC and consoles. In other words, it’s on a hiring spree, which seems to suggests the game is entering full production...
Microsoft today announced the launch of a new bug bounty program, this time revolving around its Xbox products. Like other programs of its kind, the Xbox Bounty program seeks the help of security researchers, gamers, and otherwise technology enthusiasts to discover any security issues with its services, and in turn, those that report issues can get monetary rewards.
In the case of the Xbox Bounty program, rewards can go up to $20,000 depending on the severity of the issue and the quality of the submission. The kinds of impact included in the program are remote code execution, elevation of privileges, security feature bypass, information disclosure, spoofing, and tampering, each with its own reward levels. Denial of service attacks are naturally not included in the scope of the program.
Good news, GTA V Online fans – publisher Rockstar’s got some goodies in store for you. Following the success of the Diamond Casino’s arrival and heist last year, the game’s broken some big player records, and the studio’s decided to celebrate by giving players “huge bonuses” in-game.
First up, GTA Online players can grab some big bucks in a giveaway of $2m of in-game currency – the biggest cash giveaway the open world game’s seen yet, according to Rockstar. As of tomorrow (January 30), you’ll earn the first half of that amount if you play the game before February 5, and then another $1m if you jump into the game between February 6 and 12. Sweet.
Rockstar also announces: “There is still much more to come in 2020...
Rainbow Six Siege has received Update 1.80. You can now download this update on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You will find that Rainbow Six Siege Update 1.80 is quite a small update as it has a download and install size of 850 MB. The full details of the patch notes are very unclear, as they only announced five fixes.
In Rainbow Six Siege, you embody the famous elite group of tactical action operators, and even the terrorists if we opt for it. The game invites the knowledge of each faction, and for the first time in the saga, we enter a deep multiplayer facet of 5 against 5 players. Each user has a specific role in the team, and the maps and scenarios forces us to adapt our strategies in detail. Below you will find the complete list of Rainbow Six Siege Update 1.80 patch notes.
Several days ago, CD Projekt RED announced that Cyberpunk 2077 would be getting delayed from its previously-agreed date of April 16 of this year to September 17. Previously the reason hadn’t been disclosed, but a new source has given us a possibility: the Cyberpunk 2077 delay reason is because of the current-gen consoles.
Going by the source, Borys Niespielak, current-generation consoles like the Playstation 4 and Xbox One aren’t actually powerful enough to run Cyberpunk 2077 properly, as performance suffers heavily on both. The delay apparently only happened when the issues were not able to be resolved by this month.
Considering how big and ambitious Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be, it’s not a big surprise that CD Projekt RED wants it to perform as well as possible on all of its plat...
While Grand Theft Auto VI — popularly known as GTA 6 — hasn’t been announced or confirmed by Rockstar Games, there’s been many rumors and leaks about the inevitable PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC game. And given that GTA 5 is the second best-selling game of all time, this isn’t very surprising. People are hungry for more Grand Theft Auto, and with an increasing amount of rumors, leaks, reports, and scuttlebutt about a new installment, it looks like we may finally see the hypothetical game soon, or at least that’s what many fans are hoping.
This week, many are pointing towards an Instagram post from an industry stuntman who has worked with Rockstar Games in the past...
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds players on the PC got the new Karakin map a few days ago when it was added to the test servers, and the players on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions can now explore the map as well. PUBG Corp. announced this week that the map and other content included in the start of Season 6 had been added to the console test servers for players to preview before it goes live for everyone.
PUBG’s new map was announced this week when the developers said it’d be replacing one of the game’s maps temporarily to make room for it. It’s a small map fit for 64 players and has a new feature called the Black Zone that randomly destroys parts of the map and players that inhabit them each match.
