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. ...

    New Trailer for South Park: The Stick of Truth Reveals a Delay Until March 4

    Another delay has hit South Park: The Stick of Truth. This time, the delay pushes the game from a December release until all the way into March. March 4th to be more precise.

    PlayStation 4 Will Not Support Uploads to YouTube

    As part of their massive pre-release FAQ for the PlayStation 4, Sony revealed that the console will not allow direct uploads to YouTube at launch.

PS4 owners can follow PlayStation.Blog and PlayStation.com for further news on other services to come after launch.

  • FXAA Ruins Texture Quality in Battlefield 4

    FXAA Ruins Texture Quality in Battlefield 4

    We already know how FXAA use tends to blur textures in games while simultaneously serving as a quick method of AA. However, it seems as though FXAA use in Battlefield 4 blurs textures more noticeably than in any other game.

    HardOCP suggest turning the "Antialiasing Post" setting to "Off" in order to fix the blurred texture issue. The other AA settings in the game should be ok to adjust to your own tastes, just leave Antialiasing Post "off."

  • Microsoft Must Really Like the 'Xbox Huge' Meme

    Microsoft Must Really Like the 'Xbox Huge' Meme

    So, Microsoft made another giant Xbox, this time it's a giant Xbox One. Unlike the previous large console of theirs, there is only one of this One and it's in Vancouver. O Canada, what are you doing up there? It's said to be 40 feet long and 20 feet wide. Microsoft has hinted that the console will "unlock" after people "pledge" their gamertags and/or souls. Gamers can pledge their tags in person, online, or from the Xbox 360 dashboard. I'm going assume this is for residents of Canada only, but I have no idea. Prizes include Xbox One consoles and a trip to Toronto for the system's launch. (via ...

    First Titanfall is Exclusive to Xbox and PC, Vince Zampella is Not Happy

    Sorry hopeful PlayStation 4 owners, it looks as though Titanfall from Respawn Entertainment won't be headed to your platform. EA has stated that the game will remain exclusive to the PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One for the entirety of its life.

    EA CFO, Blake Jorgensen, said this during today's financial call for EA.
    "In the case of Titanfall, it's a brand new IP and it's exclusive only for the life of the title on Xbox One and Xbox 360 and PC."

    Before you get upset with Respawn, here is what Respawn Entertainment's Vince Zampella had to say about this matter.
    Ho boy. Yes, it looks as though h...
