Diablo 4 is Always Online and Includes Microtransactions

This is the Diablo you pictured, right?

Yesterday, Blizzard took time away from appeasing China to kick off their two day BlizzCon event for 2019. One of yesterday's big reveals was the announcement that Diablo 4 is coming. What they didn't share in their reveal announcement to the public is the fact that Diablo 4 will require an online connection.

Not only that, but Diablo 4 will include microtransactions. Of course, all of this has a chance to change over the course of development, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. Speaking of development,...

The franchise returns to its dark roots.

Another unsurprising reveal at this year's BlizzCon was the announcement of Diablo IV. The sequel to the colorful action-RPG that is Diablo III promises to tone back the color gamut a wee bit, with hopes of appeasing fans of Diablo II.

As with the other reveals made today, Diablo IV does not yet have a release date. However, we do know that it's in development for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. So far we know of three classes: Druid, Barbarian, and Sorceress. We also know that you will be traveling...

Death Stranding Confirmed for PC

It's confirmed for Summer 2020.

Death Stranding is confirmed to hit PC in early Summer 2020. This was announced earlier today by Kojima Productions on Twitter. If you don't feel like waiting, there is still the PlayStation 4 release of the game coming up on November 8, 2019.

On the PS4 side, Sony is acting as the game's publisher. For the PC release, 505 Games will serve as the publisher. As it's 505 Games, it's a bit of a toss up right now on which PC storefronts Death Stranding will appear on initially. 505 Games published Control, which is...

    Google Stadia Launch Games are Lacking

    Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

    With the soft launch of Google Stadia rapidly approaching, it seems like we're beyond due for a look at the platform's launch lineup. Hell, we're probably beyond due for a look at the Stadia UI and full featureset, but that is another matter entirely.

    EA Working on Cross-Save and Progression Sharing Between Steam and Origin

    Seems EA is serious about this return to Steam.

    With the recent announcement that EA was making a return to Steam, a number of questions remained unanswered. A couple of those questions focused on whether or not there would be support for things like cross-save or even cross-progression between EA's own Origin platform and Steam.

    Fortunately, we have a few promising answers today. Most developers don't like to split their communities and EA is no exception. It seems they are working to get Origin to work similar to how Ubisoft's Uplay works with...

    WWE 2K20: A Game So Bad It Made The News

    If you’re a dedicated WWE2K gamer, this day has been coming for a while. With each new release in the franchise, complaints from players have been getting louder about the lack of innovations and new features. Universe mode has been broken for years. Story modes are short and unfulfilling. Making progress through career mode is impossible without microtransactions or loot boxes, and graphics have barely progressed since WWE2K15. When news of WWE2K20’s launch arrived later in the year than everyone expected it to, it was hoped that 2K had taken the time to correct...
