Battlefield 5 'Firestorm' Battle Royale Reveal Trailer and First Details


The upcoming battle royale mode for Battlefield 5 was finally revealed today thanks to an all-new trailer. The trailer doesn't show actual gameplay, but it does offer an "in-engine" look at some of the antics you and your crew will get up to.

I suppose I should preface this by saying Firestorm is the name of this new mode. It's slated to be added to Battlefield 5, free of charge to everyone that owns the game, on March 25.

Firestorm finds 64 players battling it out to be the last one standing in a match. The map size is said to be "ten times larger...
 

Google Teases Their New Gaming Console in GDC 2019 Promo Video


It's no secret that Google has been working on a gaming console. They've had a patent filed since late 2018 showing off the potential design for the new console's controller. It's kind of the typical console controller design that most of us have already come to know and probably love.

It's currently unclear as to what Google has planned for this device. Multiple sources have said that it will be a console that focuses on streaming. However, some rumors have suggested that the hardware included will make it more powerful than an Xbox One X. And while a lot of great hardware...
 

Stela is a New 'Cinematic Platformer' from SkyBox Labs


SkyBox Labs, a development studio that is helping to co-develop Halo Infinite with 343 Industries, just announced a new title today. Their new game is called Stela and it's being billed as a "cinematic platformer." It's looking for a 2019 release on the Xbox One and PC and will make its debut at GDC 2019 as part of Microsoft's ID@Xbox Developer Showcase.

Players will have to overcome challenges and alter the terrain in order to solve puzzles and make their way past various enemies. The first trailer for the game was shown off today. More information will eventually...
 

Judgment to Ship with Two Sets of English Subtitles


Building off of yesterday's news of a June 25th release date for Judgment in the West, comes word today that the game will ship with two different English subtitles to choose from. This was revealed as part of today's new media release for Judgment on the PlayStation Blog.

The Yakuza localization team already does an absolutely tremendous job, but it looks like they're trying to up the ante with Judgment. The idea to have two separate English subtitles ties in to the fact that Judgment will have English audio in addition to the original Japanese audio. Those who played the...
 

EA to Skip Annual Press Conference at E3 2019


EA announced today that they will not hold their regular EA Play press conference this year. EA Play is still going to happen, it's just that there isn't going to be a press conference to kick it off like we're used to. Instead, they will focus on having "multiple live streams" that they plan to air during EA Play.

EA now joins Sony in their decision to forego the annual press conferences at or around E3 time. Sony announced back in November 2018 that they were not going to hold an E3 2019 conference. So far, it seems as though Microsoft and Ubisoft are still going...

  • PlayStation 4 To Launch with Optional Real Name IDs

    PlayStation 4 To Launch with Optional Real Name IDs

    More and more, the social network dominated world that you live in makes use of real names instead of online personas (what a crazy idea), so why should PlayStation 4 IDs be an exception?

    That's right, when the PlayStation 4 launches next month, gamers will have the OPTION of using their real names for their ID instead of a simple online nickname. Sony has even said previously that you can use both your real name and an online persona name if you so desire and you will not be restricted on who you play with based off of which name you choose to use. Of course, people are already up in arms over t...

    Assassin's Creed Liberation HD Arrives January 14

    The PlayStation Blog announced that Assassin's Creed Liberation HD will be available on January 14, 2014 on the PlayStation Store for the PlayStation 3. Presumably, this is also the release date of the Xbox 360 and PC versions, but there is no confirmation on that just yet.

    Liberation is set in New Orleans between 1765 and 1780, in the period between the end of the French and Indian War, up to the middle of the American Revolution. Liberation tells the story of Aveline; a female Assassin of mixed French and African heritage. Brought up in a world of privilege and contrasts, Aveline becomes a strong-willed woman

    Batman: Arkham Origins Launch Trailer

    If you did not opt to watch the lengthy 17-minute gameplay video from the other day, perhaps you'd be interested in watching the launch trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins instead.

    In case you've forgotten, Arkham Origins is slated to be released this Friday on the PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U. Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is also coming out this Friday for the Nintendo 3DS and Vita....

  • Call of Duty: Ghosts Rumored to Run at 720p on Xbox One and 1080p on PlayStation 4

    Man alive, the rumors are flying high tonight with respect to what resolution Call of Duty: Ghosts will run at on the next-gen consoles. Various sources over at NeoGAF, a few very accurate ones at that (based on their past reveals), say that CoD: Ghosts runs at just 720p and 60fps on the Xbox One.

    This is in contrast to the word that the PS4 version of the game will run it at 1080p resolution. The NeoGAF thread is already full of pages upon pages of people debating the validity of these separate claims that have all said the same thing.

    It seems as though Titanfall may also rock out on the Xbox One with...
