Microsoft Confirms Free Online Multiplayer for Halo Infinite

Confirmed after a short bout as a rumor.

Microsoft confirmed the short-lived rumor that Halo Infinite would have free multiplayer. Not only that, but they also confirmed that Halo Infinite, at least the multiplayer component, will support 120fps on Xbox Series X. I'm sure that will also hold true for the PC release as well. Sorry Xbox One owners, you can't handle all those delicious frames. ...
 

Valve Cracks Down on Using VPNs to Buy Games Cheaper

This should hopefully lead to more fair regional pricing.

For several years now, users were able to make use of a loophole that allowed them to buy games for cheaper if purchased from certain regions. Users were able to trick Steam into thinking they lived in one region where a price of a game was more favorable to them due to exchange rates. This had the unfortunate side-effect of developers and publishers having to increase prices in these regions to put a stop to those using VPNs...

Metacritic Finally Does Away with Day One User Scores

Perhaps done in an effort to suppress user score review bombing.

According to a new report by Paul Tassi, via Forbes, Metacritic seems to be doing away with allowing users to submit scores on games until at least a day after release. Tassi notes that user scores for the just released Ghost of Tsushima only has critical scores posted for the game. The user scores are currently showing a message that user reviews will be permitted starting July 18 at 12PM (PT).

    Frostpunk Coming to PS4 and XB1 in October

    The grim city builder to hit consoles this Fall.

    11 bit studios just announced that their city building title, Frostpunk, is headed to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 11. This isn't your typical city building title though. This is also a society simulator. Things are grim. The mood is grim in the game, not the game itself. The game itself is actually quite good and has had some great success on the PC.

    DayZ Getting Global Edit Because of Australia

    Bohemia wants to have just one version of the game.

    This past week, the zombie survival game DayZ was banned in Australia both at retail stores and then later from digital stores. The game was refused classification because it would "depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex, drug misuse or addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or abhorrent phenomena in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency, and propriety."

    Steam Workshop Items Need Approval from Valve

    But only for first-party titles from Valve.

    You may have already seen that news going around that items on the Steam Workshop must now be approved by Valve before they will appear for the public. This seems to include anything that you may typically find on the Steam Workshop, including custom maps, models, skins, sounds, and the like. This first showed up via a Reddit post on the Global Offensive subreddit.

    However, this approval process is not for every Workshop enabled...

  • New 'Experimental' Splinter Cell Game Confirmed by Ubisoft CEO

    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...

    Tim Willits Joins Saber Interactive

    Former id Software director joins World War Z studio.

    Just last month, Tim Willits announced that he was parting ways with id Software after the end of QuakeCon. Well, QuakeCon has come and gone, and sure enough Tim Willits departed the studio just as he said he would. It wasn't yet clear where he would end up. All we knew at the time is that he was going to stay active in the industry.

    Today, the mystery was lifted as it was announced that Willits is joining Saber Interactive...

  • Return to Final Fantasy XIV for Free

    Return to Final Fantasy XIV for Free

    This is for a limited time.

    Square Enix is allowing players to return to Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers for up to six days for free. This is obviously being done to entice some players to hop back in to the already widely popular MMORPG a mere month after the big Shadowbringers expansion was released.

    The free period is live right now and runs until August 16, 2019 at 7:59AM (PT). That's a lot of days, depending on when you read this news of course.

  • Call of Duty Devs Won't Admit 'Modern Warfare' is Political

    Call of Duty Devs Won't Admit 'Modern Warfare' is Political

    Devs continue to be too cowardly to admit all games are political.

    In a couple of interviews conducted between Game Informer and developers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from Infinity Ward, we once again see that devs are just too afraid to admit that yes, their games are indeed political.

    Given that nearly every single game is political in some way, this seems like a rather perplexing stance to take. It's even more so when we're talking about a game that has "war"...
