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...

Blizzard Loses Major Sponsor After Ban on 'Free Hong Kong' Hearthstone Pro

Blizzard continues to feel the impact of their ban of Hearthstone player Blitzchung.

It has been noticed by a number of Hearthstone fans that Mitsubishi's logo was no longer showing up during a recent Asia Pacific tournament for the game. Those on Reddit first noticed the missing logo. From there, it was confirmed by Mitsubishi that they have pulled their sponsorship from Blizzard.

This confirmation was made to The Daily Beast. Specifically, the branch that pulled its sponsorship from Blizzard was Mitsubishi Motors Taiwan, the Taiwanese branch...

EA to Bring EA Access and Games to Steam

Don't call it a comeback.

Today, an announcement from both EA and Valve seem to confirm some rumors that started to kick up over the past couple of weeks. That is correct, EA games are making a return to Steam. The plan is to bring over features like EA Access in addition to bringing over individual games like Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order.

Electronic Arts made the full announcement just a short time ago. They say that starting in Spring, EA Access will be made available through Steam. EA Access is their subscription service that allows you to...

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.

On the PS4 side, Sony is acting as the game's publisher. For the PC release, 505 Games will serve as the publisher. As it's 505 Games, it's a bit of a toss up right now on which PC storefronts Death Stranding will appear on initially. 505 Games published Control, which is...

  • First Raid Added to The Division 2

    First Raid Added to The Division 2

    Get ready for "Operation Dark Hours."

    Today, Ubisoft released the "Operation Dark Hours" update for Tom Clancy's The Division 2. This update will also include the first 8-player raid for the game, which just happens to be given the same name as the name of the update. Must just be one big coincidence.

    Today's update for the game also includes the new "Classified Assignments" feature. These are exclusive missions...

  • New Splinter Cell Game Confirmed by Ubisoft Creative Director (Update: Only a 'joke')

    That sure is one way to announce a game, I suppose.

    Update: Ubisoft issued a statement after this apparent earlier "confirmation" by Gerighty.

    Ah, so it was a "joke." Ha...

    ... ha?

    If you still somehow doubt it, Jason Schreier also confirmed that it was just a joke.

    Original: Julian Gerighty is a Creative Director at Ubisoft that has helped to create and bring games like The Division 2 and the Splinter Cell games to the world. He also just, uh, kind of announced that they're...

  • Super Mario Maker 2 Direct Announced for May 15

    Super Mario Maker 2 Direct Announced for May 15

    Get ready for new info on Super Mario Maker 2.

    Nintendo announced that they will hold a new "Direct" stream tomorrow, May 15 at 3PM (PT).

    Given that this is specifically being called a "Super Mario Maker 2 Direct" I would assume this will focus only on Super Mario Maker 2. I may or may not be Nostradamus. Watch it on YouTube or via the embed below. ...

  • World of Warcraft Classic Release Date Set for August 27

    World of Warcraft Classic Release Date Set for August 27

    Time to bust out those rose tinted glasses.

    Blizzard officially announced today that World of Warcraft Classic will be released this year. The re-release of the classic game is based off of the 1.12.0 version of the game that originally came out in late 2006. Though the release of Classic will include some "modern conveniences," it will largely still be the old WoW that you know and remember loving.

    The release date is set for August 27, but some players will get to partake of the old-timey action a bit earlier. Starting the week of...

  • 'Epic Store Exclusive' Show Lineup Announced for June 10

    'Epic Store Exclusive' Show Lineup Announced for June 10

    May actually be called "The PC Gaming Show," but it's debatable.

    The event, which takes place at 10AM (PT) on June 10, 2019 is sponsored by the Epic Games Store.

    A Plague Tale: Innocence Launch Trailer

    Aw rats!

    A Plague Tale: Innocence is ready to be released on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Actually, from the looks of it, the game is already out in most regions. I believe it unlocked starting around 6PM (ET), the same time the review embargo lifted for the game. Speaking of which, you should go read our review for A Plague Tale: Innocence.

  • Review: A Plague Tale: Innocence (PC)

    Review: A Plague Tale: Innocence (PC)

    Incredible from start to finish.

    Every once in a while there comes a new game release that defies all expectations. A Plague Tale: Innocence is one such game. Thanks to a delicate balance of satisfying gameplay and an engaging story, A Plague Tale will sink its hooks into you right from its opening chapters. Though there are a couple of small missteps along the way, the journey you share with siblings Amicia and Hugo is one you really don't want to miss.

    There are many more review "buzz words" I could use to describe A Plague Tale,...

  • David Eddings Details Abuse from Randy Pitchford

    David Eddings Details Abuse from Randy Pitchford

    Accusations include a wet-willy and aggressive shoving.

    One week ago, the dispute between Gearbox's Randy Pitchford and former Gearbox employee David Eddings went public in a hurry. It seemed as though this was largely over a pay dispute between the two parties but, as with most things involving Randy Pitchford, there's a bit more to it than that.

    Eddings has claimed, on more than one occasion now, that Randy Pitchford physically assaulted him. These allegations really came to light a few days ago when Eddings posted the following series of tweets....
