Microsoft Buys Activision Blizzard in Deal Worth Almost $70 Billion

The dream of Candy Crush on Game Pass is that much closer to a reality.

Microsoft is a stone's throw away from finalizing a deal for the purchase of Activision Blizzard. The deal sees Microsoft picking up the Call of Duty and Candy Crush developer for a staggering $68.7 billion (USD). Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer spilled the beans in a new posting at the Xbox Wire earlier today.

This deal seems to have been made at the "perfect" time, at least for Microsoft....
 

Preview: The Anacrusis Early Access Release

What to expect from this Early Access release of the latest four-player cooperative shooter.

Stray Bombay has been hard at work developing what could be the next true successor to Left 4 Dead with their upcoming cooperative PvE title, The Anacrusis. While I'm sure they want to avoid those sorts of direct comparisons, it is a little difficult to avoid them given how much of the same DNA is shared between the two franchises. Hell, one of Stray Bombay's founders, Chet Faliszek, used to...
 

PlayStation VR2 Offers 4K HDR with Foveated Rendering

Yet another company has backtracked on using NFTs after seeing the immense public backlash.

On Wednesday, GSC Game World announced that they will hold an auction to win an NFT that would eventually lead to the owner becoming an in-game NPC for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl called a "metahuman." On Thursday (that's today), GSC Game World announced that they would not include any NFT related items in connection with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl.

Peter Molyneux's Next Scam is a Blockchain Business Sim

I'm seriously already tired of this.

Grifter and master of hyperbole, Peter Molyneux, just announced his newest "game." It's called Legacy and it will be the first foray for the beguiled creator into the world of blockchain gaming. Legacy will be built entirely around the idea of blockchain technologies, NFTs, and "crypto gaming."

This weekend at the Gala Games' Galaverse in Las Vegas, Molyneux announced Legacy to the world. He's calling it a "blockchain...

    The Tomorrow Children to Make Surprise Return

    The long-forgotten PS4 exclusive is set to make a comeback.

    In September 2016, a unique and stylized game for the PlayStation 4 was released. It was called The Tomorrow Children, it offered both a paid and free-to-play option, and it had a very short life. The game lasted just 13 months before the servers were turned off in November 2017. Five years later, it looks like The Tomorrow Children is ready to return.

    Just don't expect to see it any time soon.

    Bethesda's Todd Howard recently sat down with IGN for a new episode of IGN Unfiltered.

    Epic did not provide a reason why, but we've got a pretty good idea.

    Epic Games removed the Travis Scott "Out West" dance emote from Fortnite yesterday. This comes shortly after a number of people died during the rap star's Astroworld concert in Houston, Texas.

    The Scott concert took place on November 5 in NRG Park. According to CNN, at least eight people ranging in age from 14 to 27 have died, with several others injured. Eyewitness reports say that crowds surged...

    Old platforms will get 30FPS and like it.

    Bandai Namco has put up a short technical page for Elden Ring that details what players will be able to expect in terms of resolution and framerate on various platforms. The FromSoftware developed title is aiming for an "up to" 60FPS framerate on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

    Age of Empires IV Delivers Another Top-Class Game in the Popular Historical Theme


    Just over 16 years since the release of Age of Empires III, the Age of Empires IV has finally arrived, with the general consensus being that it was well worth the wait. In the years between, of course, Ensemble Studios has continued to update and bring out new editions of the previous titles. Still, few would deny that a fourth installment to the wildly popular real-time strategy series was due.

    Now in the hands of Relic Entertainment, and co-developed by World’s Edge, AoE...

    The start of something amazing or a terrible fit?

    With news that Ubisoft is rolling out a beta for their blockchain powered NFT program, named Ubisoft Quartz, it seems only right to ask this question: Are you excited for this weird NFT-infused metaverse that developers and publishers are starting to push?

    Are you all about this idea of earning "limited" items in games that can possibly be sold for cryptocurrencies?

    Or are you against this idea, believing...
    Yes, I love this idea! Give me NFTs in my video games! I love blockchain technology and our metaverse future!

    No, I hate this idea! This is the start of something terrible and has no business being added to video games!
