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...

This confirmation was made to The Daily Beast. Specifically, the branch that pulled its sponsorship from Blizzard was Mitsubishi Motors Taiwan, the Taiwanese branch...

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...

  • Disney Interactive Lays Off Around 700 Employees

    Disney Interactive Lays Off Around 700 Employees

    About 700 employees, or 26% of its global staff, were laid off from Disney Interactive on Thursday. While layoffs were expected to happen, nobody expected the layoffs to be on this large of a scale.

    The move came after Disney decided to combine two business, mobile gaming and social gaming. As a result of these layoffs and the changed focus, the company will "cut annual game output by as much as 50%." Last year, they released nearly two dozen titles.
    "These are large-scale changes as we focus not just on getting to profitability but sustained profitability

    DirectX 12 to Debut at GDC 2014

    On March 20, 2014 at 10AM, DirectX 12 will be revealed at GDC. There really isn't much to go on right now outside of a very green DirectX 12 landing page on the MSDN website.

    Interestingly, the notable logos on the page show the usual suspects of AMD, Nvidia, and even Intel. The real interesting one is Qualcomm Snapdragon, meaning that DirectX 12 might have a big focus on future mobile devices.

    It will be interesting to see if DirectX 12 requires all new hardware and/or a whole new operating system (Windows 9) just to be used....
