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. ...

  • Former Driveclub and MotorStorm Devs Form New Studio, Working on New Sci-Fi IP

    Wushu Studios is a new independent game development studio that is made up of former members of Evolution Studios, BioWare, PlayStation, and more. Evolution Studios, if you recall, is the studio that brought the world the well received MotorStorm games along with the great looking Driveclub racing game for the PlayStation 4.

    While a bulk of Evolution ended up at Codemasters, a few decided to do their own thing. Thus, Wushu Studios was born. The first order of business for the studio seems to be creating a new sci-fi game. And no, it's not going to be a racing game.
    Founded in August 2017, the team is helmed by veteran AAA developers behind the popular MotorStorm and Driveclub franchises, as well as fresh talent

Some of these smaller improvements include better car reflections, higher quality shadows, and improved texture detail for the terrain.
    In addition, 4K resolution enhancements will be fully compatible with both Blizzard

  • Metal Gear Survive Apparently Has a Plot

    Metal Gear Survive Apparently Has a Plot

    Metal Gear Survive is the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V spin-off game that Konami is working on. Yeah, Konami still makes a game here or there, presumably when it's a slow season for pachislot. Metal Gear Survive finds you fighting for survival after Mother Base is nearly pulled into a wormhole following the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.

    This is already a really stupid plot, even by Metal Gear standards. I'm just going to let Konami's press release do the talking.

In a Tweet, ConcernedApe showed off how he and three of his friends were playing the game over LAN together. The multiplayer update for Stardew Valley has been anticipated by fans for quite a number of months now.

  • Bungie Outlines Its Plans for Major Destiny 2 Improvements

    Bungie Outlines Its Plans for Major Destiny 2 Improvements

    By the end of 2017, Destiny 2 found itself looking at a mixed bag of user reviews, despite the initial critical consensus being relatively strong. This gulf continues to grow between the critical response to Destiny 2 at launch and the current opinion of the fans. At release, things were relatively positive between everyone because the game was new and exciting. The possibility for the future was still wide open. As time wore on, the cracks began to become more and more apparent. The critics probably moved on from game and reviews were not updated to reflect this ever changing view of what is expected to be a long-term game experience. Fans, however, have stuck with the ga...

  • New Resident Evil Social Media Logo is Decidedly Old School

    New Resident Evil Social Media Logo is Decidedly Old School

    This past week, the various Resident Evil social media channels, such as Twitter and Facebook, updated with a new logo. It's so new that it's actually old, as in it's very reminiscent of the original Resident Evil logo from the original release of the first three games back on the PlayStation. Specifically, it looks a lot like the font and style used for the very first Resident Evil game back in 1996.

    For you youngsters out there that don't know there was a "PlayStation" before there was a PlayStation 3 or even a PlayStation 2, it's time for a little blast from the past. This was the logo for the original Resident Evil release.

  • Sharp Wits and Sharp Knives Come Together in SOS, Entering Early Access on January 23

    Come January 23, you can pick up a copy of the new survival multiplayer game, SOS, for just $29.99 (USD) through Steam Early Access. The game is being developed by Outpost Games, a studio made up of former EA, YouTube, and Twitch veterans. I'm assuming this means that they worked at YouTube and Twitch and weren't just streamers? Let's go with that because it sounds a lot more plausible right now.

    SOS will put 16 players against each other in a "30-minute reality show-style challenge to escape a dangerous tropical island" called La Cuna.
    In SOS, 16 players compete to retrieve a valuable relic from the ruins of a mysterious island in order
