Battlefield 5 'Firestorm' Battle Royale Reveal Trailer and First Details


The upcoming battle royale mode for Battlefield 5 was finally revealed today thanks to an all-new trailer. The trailer doesn't show actual gameplay, but it does offer an "in-engine" look at some of the antics you and your crew will get up to.

I suppose I should preface this by saying Firestorm is the name of this new mode. It's slated to be added to Battlefield 5, free of charge to everyone that owns the game, on March 25.

Firestorm finds 64 players battling it out to be the last one standing in a match. The map size is said to be "ten times larger...
 

Google Teases Their New Gaming Console in GDC 2019 Promo Video


It's no secret that Google has been working on a gaming console. They've had a patent filed since late 2018 showing off the potential design for the new console's controller. It's kind of the typical console controller design that most of us have already come to know and probably love.

It's currently unclear as to what Google has planned for this device. Multiple sources have said that it will be a console that focuses on streaming. However, some rumors have suggested that the hardware included will make it more powerful than an Xbox One X. And while a lot of great hardware...

Judgment to Ship with Two Sets of English Subtitles


Building off of yesterday's news of a June 25th release date for Judgment in the West, comes word today that the game will ship with two different English subtitles to choose from. This was revealed as part of today's new media release for Judgment on the PlayStation Blog.

The Yakuza localization team already does an absolutely tremendous job, but it looks like they're trying to up the ante with Judgment. The idea to have two separate English subtitles ties in to the fact that Judgment will have English audio in addition to the original Japanese audio. Those who played the...
 

EA to Skip Annual Press Conference at E3 2019


EA announced today that they will not hold their regular EA Play press conference this year. EA Play is still going to happen, it's just that there isn't going to be a press conference to kick it off like we're used to. Instead, they will focus on having "multiple live streams" that they plan to air during EA Play.

EA now joins Sony in their decision to forego the annual press conferences at or around E3 time. Sony announced back in November 2018 that they were not going to hold an E3 2019 conference. So far, it seems as though Microsoft and Ubisoft are still going...

  • Razer to Pay the Unpaid Developers From Ouya's Free the Games Marketing Program

    Ouya has a program called "Free the Games" that essentially allowed Ouya to give out some games for free to Ouya consumers with the promise that Ouya themselves would pay the developers later on. Problem was, Ouya went the way of the Dodo. Prior to that happening, Ouya crafted a new agreement that essentially said they had no responsibility to pay anything owed to the developers of those games should Ouya go bankrupt. Well, Ouya went bankrupt and thus left roughly $620,000 unpaid towards developers. The developers are, understandably, upset. Along comes Razer, who recently purchased Ouya, to save the day. Just moments ago, Razer announced that they will fulfill the Free ...

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Allows You to Defeat Bosses However You Want

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Allows You to Defeat Bosses However You Want

    When Deus Ex: Human Revolution came out, it was largely praised with the exception of the boss fights. No matter how you played the game, the boss fights were nothing more than actual fights with little to no means of utilizing stealth or any of your non-lethal abilities. That was somewhat fixed in the GOTY edition but it wasn't as good as it could have been.

    Now, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided looks like it will allow you to tackle bosses to suit your play style. The latest issue of OXM has a nice bit of information from Gameplay Director Patrick Fortier and the Narrative Director Mary DeMarle, where they explain how the boss fights...

    Capcom offers its sincerest apologies to everyone who participated in this first beta test.

  • China Ending Ban on Video Game Consoles

    China Ending Ban on Video Game Consoles

    At long last, China is lifting its ban on making and selling video game consoles within its borders. This will now allow companies like Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft to sell their consoles to retailers who can then sell the systems to end consumers, something that they haven't been able to do since 2000 when these restrictions first went into place.

    Prior to this move, China restricted the sell of game consoles to a small area called the Shanghai Free Trade Zone. Now, they are free to make and sell consoles throughout the entirety of China.
