New 'Experimental' Splinter Cell Game Confirmed by Ubisoft CEO

Open World? GAAS? Mobile? VR?

The emotional rollercoaster that fans of the Splinter Cell series has been on for the past few years has been never ending, has had no chill, and frankly, it's gotten to be a wee bit tiresome. In May of this year, a new Splinter Cell was apparently "confirmed" and then it was later revealed to just be a joke.

Last month, we again heard a rumor that a new Splinter Cell was actually in the works. However, that story from July says that Facebook is financing the game and that it will be a VR only title and exclusive to the Oculus...
 

Mojang Cancels 'Super Duper Graphics Pack' for Minecraft

Performance issues and engine difficulties were too much to overcome.

Sadly, Mojang announced today that they are cancelling the promised Super Duper Graphics Pack that was originally revealed at E3 2017. This visual overhaul was teased for the game during the annual industry trade show and fans were eager to check it out for themselves.

This was going to be an optional piece of DLC that brought a suite of visual improvements to the Xbox One and PC versions of the game without needing to mod it. Sure, a lot of the visual improvements have been done time and time again...
 

Call of Duty 2020 Rumored to Be Black Ops Reboot

Next stop: Reboot City.

This year, Call of Duty fans are getting a reboot of the first Call of Duty: Modern Warfare title. Next year, fans may get a reboot of the Black Ops series. This is if the latest rumors are to be believed.

The 2020 Call of Duty will either be Call of Duty: Black Ops 5 or simply Call of Duty: Black Ops. The game will be set in the Cold War era and will also include the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

This all comes courtesy of YouTuber TheLongSensation via his Twitter account. While it may be easy to just write this off as some random person...
 

No Man's Sky Beyond Launch Trailer

Update arrives August 14.

A launch trailer for the massive Beyond update for No Man's Sky was released today by Hello Games. This update is said to be the "culmination of 12 months of work" on what was originally going to be three separate, large updates. Those three updates have been rolled into this massive update.

We already touched upon some of the new features and content coming to the game in our last post. The biggest addition, at least for PC and PlayStation VR owners, is the addition of full VR support for No Man's Sky. There are also some additional...
 

Solos Finally Coming to Apex Legends

But only for a limited time.

Apex Legends will finally allow introverts to play without worry starting on August 13. A Solos Mode will be introduced into the F2P battle royale game. So far, the game has only really allowed for three-man squads.

The addition of Solos Mode is the good news. The bad news is that this mode will only be added to the game for a limited time. This Solos Mode will run from August 13 through August 27 in Apex Legends. Best get your fill of it while you can, because who knows when or if it will come back afterwards. ...

  • Jade Raymond Leaving EA After Just 3 Years

    Jade Raymond Leaving EA After Just 3 Years

    Jade Raymond is parting ways with EA and the EA Motive studio that she helped to found. Taking up the reigns as studio lead will be Samantha Ryan. Ryan already leads EA Mobile, Maxis, and a BioWare studio.

    EA Motive was initially founded in 2015 after Raymond left Ubisoft. The first project for the studio was working with Amy Hennig on the now cancelled Star Wars title from the now closed Visceral Games. EA Motive at least got to put some of that work to use in helping out with Star Wars: Battlefront II. The studio then moved on to working on a new IP alongside BioWare. Despite Raymond's departure, EA remains committed to keeping ...

  • Valve Delays Artifact Beta

    Valve Delays Artifact Beta

    Valve's beta for Artifact has been delayed until November 19. The beta was supposed to begin this month but that isn't happening. There is also concern that the game itself, which is still slated to begin on November 28, will also be pushed back due to the very late start on the beta.

    PC Gamer seems to be the first outlet to notice this delay. They spotted a tweet by Wykrhm Reddy, a known tester for Valve, in which the November 19 date was prominently featured for the start of the beta.
    This date was then confirmed by others who reported receiving emails announcing the November 19 release date for th...

    Fortnite: Save the World Free Release Delayed

    This probably won't come as a shock to some of you and will probably make others go "isn't Fortnite just a battle royale game?", but the promised free release of the Save the World campaign for Fortnite has been delayed. First of all, no, Fortnite isn't just the battle royale game. In fact, it was a cooperative game focused on building and survival against zombies long before battle royale came about. But then battle royale happened and it was made clear that the Save the World campaign took a backseat, perhaps understandably so. Save the World has been accessible only to those that payed to get into the game early but it was forever promised by Epic tha...

  • 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

  • Smaller Shops Reportedly Won't Get Red Dead Redemption 2 Until November

    Smaller Shops Reportedly Won't Get Red Dead Redemption 2 Until November

    This is an interesting story to share with you today. According to a new report from Kotaku, smaller retail shops will not get any copies of Red Dead Redemption 2 to sell until at least November. This information comes from a number of small retail shop owners that Kotaku interviewed recently. These "mom and pop" shops have stated that they have been told their distributors won't be able to get them copies in time for release. One such store owner is Zach Gieg, the owner of a small chain of shops in Pennsylvania. Gieg reportedly spent over $3,300 to put up promotional materials for the game. He believed that the expense would more than pay for itself once he started to sell the game on...

    Watch the Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Trailer

    Think of the title less of an informative statement and more of a command. You will watch the launch trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 that came out today. I'm sure you would do this anyway even without me issuing a weak command to you, so it's not like I'm pushing you that hard.
    America, 1899. The end of the Wild West era has begun. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland
