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

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...

    Tony Hawk Developer Neversoft Shuts Down

    The developer of the Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero games, Neversoft, has shut its doors for the last time today. Back in May, it was announced that the team would be merged with Infinity Ward.

    As you may expect, this "bigger" version of Infinity Ward is probably going to be dedicated to just making Call of Duty games. To mark the occasion, Neversoft not only burned a real-life replica of their eyeball logo, but they were also given a gift from Co-Founder Joel Jewett.

  • Dota 2 The International 4 - Day 2 Recap

    Dota 2 The International 4 - Day 2 Recap

    The second day of playoff rounds for The International 4 concluded and is in the books. The big winner on the day if ViCi, which sits at a 7-1 record. The worst performer was Arrow, which ended up the day at 2-8. Valve notes that if ViCi loses the rest of their playoff matches, they'll end up at 7-8. On the flip side, if Arrow wins the rest of their matches, they will also be 7-8. Is that record good enough to move on? It very well could be as all it takes is being in the top two teams to move on to the main event or being in the top 8 to move on to phase three...
