Diablo 4 is Always Online and Includes Microtransactions

This is the Diablo you pictured, right?

Yesterday, Blizzard took time away from appeasing China to kick off their two day BlizzCon event for 2019. One of yesterday's big reveals was the announcement that Diablo 4 is coming. What they didn't share in their reveal announcement to the public is the fact that Diablo 4 will require an online connection.

Not only that, but Diablo 4 will include microtransactions. Of course, all of this has a chance to change over the course of development, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. Speaking of development,...

Diablo 4 Officially Announced - First Details, Screens, and More

The franchise returns to its dark roots.

Another unsurprising reveal at this year's BlizzCon was the announcement of Diablo IV. The sequel to the colorful action-RPG that is Diablo III promises to tone back the color gamut a wee bit, with hopes of appeasing fans of Diablo II.

As with the other reveals made today, Diablo IV does not yet have a release date. However, we do know that it's in development for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. So far we know of three classes: Druid, Barbarian, and Sorceress. We also know that you will be traveling...

Death Stranding Confirmed for PC

It's confirmed for Summer 2020.

Death Stranding is confirmed to hit PC in early Summer 2020. This was announced earlier today by Kojima Productions on Twitter. If you don't feel like waiting, there is still the PlayStation 4 release of the game coming up on November 8, 2019.

  • Genesis Noir Explores the Big Bang and a Love Triangle Gone Wrong

    Genesis Noir Explores the Big Bang and a Love Triangle Gone Wrong

    A story of romance, black holes, and jazz music.

    Genesis Noir was revealed this past weekend during the PC Gaming Show at E3. It is a unique looking game that will have players exploring themes of romance and science. It explores the idea of black holes and love. It takes place before, during, and after the Big Bang. No, it doesn't have anything to do with the terrible TV show, nor does it have a laugh track, but it does have psychedelic jazz music.

    Genesis Noir is hard to explain for those of us who haven't played it. It's better to take a look...

    Zombie Army 4: Dead War Announced

    What is dead may never die...

    Rebellion wasn't content with only showing off Sniper Elite VR at this year's E3 event. No sir. In addition to that game, they also announced Zombie Army 4: Dead War this weekend. In development for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store on PC, Zombie Army 4 seems to fully ditch the "Sniper Elite" and "Nazi" moniker and seems to put less of a focus on long-range engagements.

    Zombie Army 4 is targeting a release in 2020.

    If you don't know about this series yet, the short...
