Watch the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Announcement Trailer


At the end of February, the world was alerted to the fact that Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall, Apex Legends) and EA would reveal a trailer for their new Star Wars title on this very day. It turns out, this scheduled event happened as planned.

Imagine that.

Earlier today the studios revealed the first details and trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order at the Star Wars Celebration that has been going on this weekend in Chicago. This is an original game set in the Star Wars universe and looks to take place after Order 66 was issued. This places the game set shortly...
 

New 425.31 Nvidia Drivers Bring Ray Tracing to Older GTX Cards

Remember about a month back when we told you that ray tracing was coming to those with non-RTX Nvidia cards? That day has finally arrived. With today's release of the 425.31 drivers, those on 1060 and higher cards can now give real-time ray tracing a spin.

Since all of these older cards lack the special hardware that helps to speed up DirectX Raytracing (DXR) in games, don't expect to have fantastic framerates. However, if you understand what you're getting yourself into, go nuts with it. Just make sure you have one of the following cards, have updated to the 425.31 Nvidia drivers,...

If you or xXEdGeL0rD_420sw4gXx would like to change your PlayStation Network name, you are now free to do so starting today. Sony has rolled out the name change feature for PSN to everyone, but there are a few stipulations to all of this.

First off, there will be some games that may not support the fact that you decided to change your PSN name. Sony makes it clear that any and all games that were published after April 1, 2018.

Apex Legends to Soon Start Penalizing Early Leavers


A new feature is in the works for Apex Legends that aims to penalize those players that leave a game prematurely. Last week's 1.1 update for the game briefly introduced a penalty system for those that left a game before their team was eliminated. This feature was quickly pulled for reasons unknown but some additional details on this new mechanic were shared today from Respawn.

Community manager Jayfresh shared some details about what they're working on via Reddit.



Subsequent responses in the thread cleared up a few of the major questions fans of...
 

Z1 Battle Royale Dropped by New Developer After One Month


Daybreak Games just can't seem to catch a break. Their mess, otherwise known as H1Z1 has been met with another weird twist in its story. It was announced that NantG Mobile, the studio that took over development of the game, has dropped the game and given it back to its original developer Daybreak Games.

H1Z1 is now known as Z1 Battle Royale, but you may also know it as H1Z1: King of the Kill, H1Z1: Just Survive, King of the Kill, or the second iteration of its original H1Z1 name. Included in all of these name changes was the apparent removal of the survival aspect to the game,...

    Battlefield: Hardline Beta Updated with "Netcode" Improvements

    The PC version of the beta for Battlefield: Hardline was updated today. Among the changes were improvements to the "netcode" based off of the "netcode" improvements for Battlefield 4.
    Did you see that they included the QUOTATIONnetcodeQUOTATION update?! Seriously, the continued use of "netcode" with the quotes just comes off as completely patronizing...

    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Gameplay Demo Tomorrow

    Tomorrow, Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions will make public the gameplay demo they showed off to the press at E3 2014 for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

    The event will be streamed live at 3AM (PT) or 6AM (ET) through the Kojima Station Twitch channel. Given that the live gameplay demonstration will take place in the wee hours of the morning, there is a very small chance I'll be watching it live. Fortunately for you, Konami tells me that they will be "working to get the full video on its social media channels" as soon as they possibly can. So, chances are you can simply check that out on...

  • Love and War Update for TF2 - Day 2 - Bread, Weapons, Bread Weapons, and Achievements


    Welcome to the second day of reveals for the Team Fortress 2 "Love and War" update! Today's update focuses on some of the new weapons and goodies you'll be able to get your hands on when the update goes live. It also provides a lit of new achievements. One thing that stuck out to me was the weapon listed above. The Classic is very similar to the old TFC sniper rifle. Perhaps you should keep your fingers crossed that the sniper rifle isn't the only thing from TFC that Valve is going to include in this update! Also of note are the special bread-themed weapons and accessories for the classes. They also showed...

  • Heists Delayed Again for GTA Online

    Heists Delayed Again for GTA Online

    Heists are once again delayed for GTA Online, so says Rockstar. The Heists were planned to arrive shortly after the launch of GTA Online and were then pushed back to a vague "Spring" release. Well, Spring has essentially come and gone and now Rockstar has delayed the Heists even further.
    We know many fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Online Heists that we had planned to release for you this spring, and they are taking more time to create than originally anticipated. We are very sorry for the delay, and are working hard to bring them to you as soon as we can. Please know that we are focused

  • Bungie Says Parity with Previous Console Generation is the Reason Destiny Is Not 60fps

    Yet again, we're faced with another case of development of a game for the previous console generation holding back performance on the current generation of consoles. Development for four platforms is apparently the reason why Destiny does not run at 60fps on the Xbox One or PlayStation 4.
