This evening, Activision Blizzard began to inform numerous employees that they will be let go from the company.

Apex Legends Surpasses 25 Million Players


It was only four days ago now that we told you about how Apex Legends hit the 10 million player count. It was at that time that we also learned the game had over one million concurrent players, which is another huge milestone.

Not only that, but Vince Zampella revealed that the game has "well over 2 million" concurrent players.

Some of these new features include a four-player co-op game mode called Combined Arms. The update will also add in DLSS support and better RTX support for those using supported cards.

DLSS is a new technology that, in simple terms, makes the game look better and perform better through machine learning. It's mainly useful for resolutions at 4K or better and should, in theory, constantly result in better performance and near identical...

  • Second Major Patch Released Today for Chrono Trigger

    Second Major Patch Released Today for Chrono Trigger

    I just realized how amusing it is to write about a patch being released for Chrono Trigger. For a brief moment, I felt as though it was the mid-90s again and I was about to write up a story concerning a new patch for Chrono Trigger on the SNES. That's some weird, alternate reality stuff right there.

    But alas, it's 2018 and I'm naturally talking about the PC release of Chrono Trigger. Today sees the release of the second major patch for the game, following the first major patch that restored the game's visuals to their former glory.

    Today's patch includes the following updates:

  • Battlefield V Live Reveal on May 23

    Battlefield V Live Reveal on May 23

    Earlier today Battlefield V was officially announced. I mean, we kind of knew there was a new Battlefield game coming, though the name being confirmed as "Battlefield V" is noteworthy.

    I say it's noteworthy because an earlier rumor said that the name would be Battlefield V, which has now been confirmed. The rumor also said that the game would take place during WWII. That has yet to be confirmed. However, given that the leaked image in the rumor utilizes the same color scheme as the official announcement, seen above, it does lend a fair bit of support to the WWII claim. Anyway, back to the news of the day. Though there isn't...

  • S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Announced

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Announced

    It looks like S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was announced today. All that was revealed today was the fact that it will eventually be a game but it won't be released until 2021. There's also a website for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 but it doesn't have much of anything on it. There is literally no other information released yet for the game. I feel as though it was announced this early because they want to spend the next three years torturing people like me with having to type the game's title out in each and every news post, headline, and tag. I sure can't wait to hear that iconic line in the sequel, "Get out of here Stalker... too....
