New 'Experimental' Splinter Cell Game Confirmed by Ubisoft CEO

Open World? GAAS? Mobile? VR?

The emotional rollercoaster that fans of the Splinter Cell series has been on for the past few years has been never ending, has had no chill, and frankly, it's gotten to be a wee bit tiresome. In May of this year, a new Splinter Cell was apparently "confirmed" and then it was later revealed to just be a joke.

Last month, we again heard a rumor that a new Splinter Cell was actually in the works. However, that story from July says that Facebook is financing the game and that it will be a VR only title and exclusive to the Oculus...
 

Mojang Cancels 'Super Duper Graphics Pack' for Minecraft

Performance issues and engine difficulties were too much to overcome.

Sadly, Mojang announced today that they are cancelling the promised Super Duper Graphics Pack that was originally revealed at E3 2017. This visual overhaul was teased for the game during the annual industry trade show and fans were eager to check it out for themselves.

This was going to be an optional piece of DLC that brought a suite of visual improvements to the Xbox One and PC versions of the game without needing to mod it. Sure, a lot of the visual improvements have been done time and time again...
 

Call of Duty 2020 Rumored to Be Black Ops Reboot

Next stop: Reboot City.

This year, Call of Duty fans are getting a reboot of the first Call of Duty: Modern Warfare title. Next year, fans may get a reboot of the Black Ops series. This is if the latest rumors are to be believed.

The 2020 Call of Duty will either be Call of Duty: Black Ops 5 or simply Call of Duty: Black Ops. The game will be set in the Cold War era and will also include the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

This all comes courtesy of YouTuber TheLongSensation via his Twitter account. While it may be easy to just write this off as some random person...
 

No Man's Sky Beyond Launch Trailer

Update arrives August 14.

A launch trailer for the massive Beyond update for No Man's Sky was released today by Hello Games. This update is said to be the "culmination of 12 months of work" on what was originally going to be three separate, large updates. Those three updates have been rolled into this massive update.

We already touched upon some of the new features and content coming to the game in our last post. The biggest addition, at least for PC and PlayStation VR owners, is the addition of full VR support for No Man's Sky. There are also some additional...
 

Solos Finally Coming to Apex Legends

But only for a limited time.

Apex Legends will finally allow introverts to play without worry starting on August 13. A Solos Mode will be introduced into the F2P battle royale game. So far, the game has only really allowed for three-man squads.

The addition of Solos Mode is the good news. The bad news is that this mode will only be added to the game for a limited time. This Solos Mode will run from August 13 through August 27 in Apex Legends. Best get your fill of it while you can, because who knows when or if it will come back afterwards. ...

  • Battlefield: Hardline Beta Updated with "Netcode" Improvements

    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

    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.

  • Xbox One to Receive Separate Battlefield: Hardline Beta

    Xbox One to Receive Separate Battlefield: Hardline Beta

    Right now, the beta for Battlefield: Hardline is limited to PC and PlayStation 4 owners. That means that Xbox One owners are left out in the cold when it comes to experiencing the extreme thrills that the beta brings with it. Cry no more, Xbox One owners, because you will apparently get a beta that is quite different from what everyone else is presently enjoying the hell out of.
    "We will have a beta on on all platforms before release," DICE's General Manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson confirmed to us during an interview at E3. "But it won't be this beta on Xbox. It's not going to be the same version, just to be clea
