Not only that, but Vince Zampella revealed that the game has "well over 2 million" concurrent players.

Battlefield 5 Adds Combined Arms Co-op, Balancing, and More in Tomorrow's Update


A patch that is tentatively slated to be released tomorrow, February 12, will add in some new content and features for Battlefield 5 players. Some of these new features include a four-player co-op game mode called Combined Arms. The update will also add in DLSS support and better RTX support for those using supported cards.

DLSS is a new technology that, in simple terms, makes the game look better and perform better through machine learning. It's mainly useful for resolutions at 4K or better and should, in theory, constantly result in better performance and near identical...

    World War Z Release Date Set for April 16


    We've been seeing a lot of media these past few months for the upcoming World War Z from Saber Interactive and Focus Home Interactive. The problem was, we didn't really have any sort of release date outside of a vague "2019" window.

    Today, we were finally given a release date. That date is April 16, 2019 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via the Epic Games Store. Pre-orders are now open for your platform of choice.

  • Paradox Potentially Teasing New Vampire: The Masquerade Game via Dating App ARG


    This one is coming at you hot and fast from PC Gamer. A new report from the digital magazine suggests that Paradox Interactive is possibly teasing a new Vampire: The Masquerade game via a fake dating app.

    The app is called Tender and it's claim to fame is a "soulmate algorithm." You can even sign into it using your existing Paradox account. And I wouldn't worry too much about actually getting matched with someone. Even their announcement video seems to indicate that things are not as they seem with Tender.

    When you first sign into the app, it asks for...

    Metro Exodus 'Artyom's Nightmare' Trailer


    Look, I cannot recall if I already posted this trailer or not. Chances are, I probably missed this last week when it actually came out. However, we're in the here and now and I can't just go and alter history, so I'm posting it for you today. This here is a new trailer for Metro Exodus. If you already watched it, then it's obviously not new, but do spare me the semantics.

    4A Games and Deep Silver call this one "Artyom's Nightmare" and it is a CGI animated short. It serves as a "dream-like prologue to the events of Metro Exodus."

  • Jump Force Launch Week Begins with New Trailer

    Jump Force Launch Week Begins with New Trailer


    The last I checked, there have been roughly 7 million videos released so far for Jump Force. My count may be off by a little bit. However, the videos keep on coming with the launch of the game rapidly approaching.

    Today, we get a new trailer for the game. It doesn't show off any one character in particular. Instead, it highlights "the diverse roster of iconic manga heroes and villains as they go toe-to-toe against each other for the fate of our world and theirs."

    Jump FOrce is slated to arrive on February 15 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via...

    New World War Z Trailer Shows Off PvPvZ Multiplayer Gameplay


    A new trailer for the upcoming World War Z game shows off some PvPvZ multiplayer action. Get it? Z? Zombies? Clever.

    This new trailer does actually show off what parts of the game will be like. Though the core game is still co-op against the zeds, there are some competitive modes that see groups of four going up against another group of four players. Of course, the big wildcard in this is the always present swarm of undead that tends not to pick sides in this competitive battle. They're an equal-opportunity opponent. ...
