Respawn Apologizes to Ass-hat Gamers for 'Ass-hat' Remarks

Statement issued from Respawn's Vince Zampella.

Respawn's CEO Vince Zampella issued a bit of an apology today after members of the Apex Legends development team called a bunch of toxic ass-hat gamers, well... they called them ass-hats. Donning their biggest surprised Pikachu face possible, these Gamers™ got extra angry when they realized they couldn't just keep dishing it out and not expect some form of retaliation in return. Some continued to throw tantrums, others called for boycots, while still others did their best "I studied the blade" impersonation.

Sony Bought Insomniac Games Today

Get ready for more Spider-Man.

Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) has officially purchased Insomniac Games today. You're probably surprised to hear that the studio that developed last year's PlayStation 4 exclusive Spider-Man wasn't already owned by Sony prior to this week.

Insomniac Games was first started in 1994 and remained an independent game developer for this 25 year span of time. They created Spyro the Dragon, the Ratchet & Clank games, along with the Resistance franchise. All of these franchises were PlayStation exclusives, at least initially. Every so...

Rust is Killing Linux Support; Devs Offer Refunds

Rust became a "cheater's sanctuary" on Linux.

On August 9, Rust developer Garry Newman wrote a blog talking about potential plans for the long neglected Linux client for their open-world survival game. In the blog, Newman talks about how he and the team could have done more to support the client, even if he says their support "might have been above average."

He goes on to say that the Linux version had "become more popular with the cheating community." However, even with performance and anti-cheat improvements coming soon to the Windows...
 

Halo Infinite Creative Director Leaves 343 Industries

Tim Longo says farewell to 343.

The creative director for Halo Infinite, Tim Longo, is no longer employed at 343 Industries. His departure comes just a few weeks after he had moved to a different role within the company a few weeks back. The details surrounding his move to that "new role" are quite scarce.

His departure from 343 also comes at a time where Halo Infinite is very deep in development. The game isn't slated to be released until late 2020, but it has been in development at the Microsoft owned studio for around four years at present. Halo Infinite's...

  • Operation Absolute Zero Live for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on PS4

    Operation Absolute Zero Live for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on PS4

    PlayStation 4 owners with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 can now download and play Operation Absolute Zero. This is, so far, the biggest content drop for Black Ops 4 since the game was released. Xbox One and PC players will have to wait until December 18 to play this new content because timed exclusives are stupid but it is what it is.

    Charlie INTEL has a very nice rundown of the changes included in today's big updates.
    Multiplayer:

    • An all new Specialist, Zero, is now live in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 MP. Players can use this new specialist with the disruptor equipment and hack enemy kill streaks.
    • The brand new Operation Absolute Zero Contraband Stream is live in the Black Market!

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Sales Surpasses $500 Million in Three Days

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Sales Surpasses $500 Million in Three Days

    The lack of a single player campaign sure as hell doesn't seem to matter to most of the gaming world, as evident by the fact that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has pulled in over $500 million (USD) in worldwide sales just over its launch weekend.

    To put it perspective, that is about the same amount that Call of Duty: WWII pulled in last year. However, it is down ever so slightly from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 that pulled in over $550 million in its first three days.
    "Black Ops 4 is off to a blockbuster start," said Activision executive vice president and Call of Duty GM Rob Kostich. "Our player counts and hours played are up year

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Breaks Sales Records for Activision

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Breaks Sales Records for Activision

    Activision announced today that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was set a new launch day sales record. According to the publisher, Black Ops 4 is the "biggest one day digital release" in their history.

    This naturally broke the previous record set by 2017's Call of Duty: WWII. Black Ops 4 also set records on the PlayStation for most day one digital full game sales through the PlayStation Store. It was also the best-selling Activision Xbox One digital game on day one. Though this was the first year for the Call of Duty franchise to appear solely on Battle.net, sales of the PC version were more than double when compared to last year's...

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Released Today

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was released today. It has a variety of multiplayer modes that may or may not appeal to you. There are competitive multiplayer modes, a battle royale mode called Blackout, and some Zombies campaigns. There is no single player campaign in this year's release.
    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 features three distinct modes of play: Multiplayer, Zombies and Blackout. Multiplayer features gritty, grounded combat in the most tactical, team-based experience in the Black Ops series to date.

  • Secret Maps Showed Off Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Launch Trailer

    Secret Maps Showed Off Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Launch Trailer

    The launch trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 came out today. I mean, the game is out on October 12, 2018 so having a launch trailer now isn't exactly out of the ordinary.

    It's a launch trailer. It shows off some scenes of action, it has some voice over work, and the like. Since Black Ops 4 doesn't have a single player campaign, you really don't have to worry about seeing any spoilers here, so that's a plus, right?

    However, there are still some secrets hidden in the trailer. Charlie INTEL notes that the launch trailer gives you a little look at two previously unannounced multiplayer maps.

  • Blackout Battle Royale Gameplay Showcased in New Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Trailer

    Activision and Treyarch released a new gameplay focused trailer today for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Specifically, this video focuses on the Blackout battle royale coming with the game.

    As you may recall, yesterday we saw what the full Blackout map looks like. It seems as though this is all leading up nicely to the Blackout beta that begins on Monday, September 10 on the PS4. The PC and Xbox One will get to hop into the beta starting on Friday, September 14.

    More information on the beta and Blackout can always be found at the Black Ops 4 website.

  • This is the Full Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 'Blackout' Map

    This is the Full Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 'Blackout' Map

    Charlie INTEL has pieced together the full battle royale map that will be used for the Blackout mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

    I say "pieced together" because Activision and Treyarch were sending out direct messages to a number of Call of Duty communities with small sections of the overall map. Those communities then shared the media they were sent with the world, typically through Twitter posts. It took a bit of time, but it looks like all of the pieces finally fell into place.

    This map comes just a day after we learned some key details about Blackout from Game Informer....

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Battle Royale Mode Starts at 80 Players and Includes Zombies

    Some details about Blackout, the battle royale mode coming with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 are starting to come out this week courtesy of the October issue of Game Informer. So far some of the highlights include word that the beta will support 80 players though the final version is looking to target 100 players. They have already done internal tests with 100 players.

    Well, color me surprised. If they can pull it off, I will be genuinely impressed since the Call of Duty multiplayer games aren't exactly known for their huge player counts.

    The Blackout mode will also, drumroll please, include zombies. Because of course. Though apparently, the locations for the zombies in the map will make sense and they won't be everywhere. For example, Nuketown being turned into Nuketown Island would have zombies on it. I guess that...
