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...

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.

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.

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. ...

  • Sony Reveals Project Morpheus - Virtual Reality for the PlayStation 4

    Sony Reveals Project Morpheus - Virtual Reality for the PlayStation 4

    Earlier today at GDC 2014, Sony took the lid off of Project Morpheus, their virtual reality system that works with the PlayStation 4.

    Wal-Mart Entering Into Used Game Market

    Wal-Mart is making the move to the used game market starting on March 26. Once that date rolls around, gamers will be able to trade in their old games to their local store, assuming their local store is one of the 3,100 locations participating in the initial roll out.
