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. ...

  • Pathologic 2 Announced, Releasing this May

    Pathologic 2 Announced, Releasing this May


    Pathologic 2 was shown off today during the Gearbox Publishing segment of today's Gearbox PAX panel. The game, still in development from tinyBuild, will be released on May 23, 2019 through Steam.

    A new trailer for the game shows off just a taste of the game's creepy setting and disturbing cast of characters. The game is in first-person and can best be described as a "narrative-driven dramatic thriller." It's probably a good thing those are the exact words the dev team uses to describe their title then.

    You are a medic trying to save the sick inhabitants...

  • Insomniac Reveals New PAX East Trailer for Stormland

    Insomniac Reveals New PAX East Trailer for Stormland


    A new trailer surfaced today ahead of PAX East 2019 for the Insomniac Games developed VR title, Stormland.

    Stormland is currently only in development for the Oculus Rift. The chances of it being released for other platforms, like the Vive or PlayStation VR are pretty slim since it's being published by Oculus Studios. Of course, it's not particularly difficult to get Rift "exclusive" games working on the Vive thanks to Revive, so maybe that's a moot point.

    Stormland places you in the robotic shoes of an android as they explore a giant world in search...
