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...

  • Horror Game Devotion Pulled from Steam Following Winnie the Pooh Uproar

    Horror Game Devotion Pulled from Steam Following Winnie the Pooh Uproar


    A new horror game that released just six days on Steam, Devotion, has been pulled from the distribution platform. The game was pulled without warning but it wasn't done by Valve. It was pulled by the game's developer, the Taiwan based studio Red Candle Games.

    Though the game is only temporarily removed (more on that later), it was done following a rather hellish few days for the studio. The game has been relentlessly review bombed by a number of irate Chinese citizens and, quite probably, a number of Chinese based propaganda groups such as the 50 Cent Party.

  • Sales Figures for Anthem are Half Those of Andromeda in UK

    Sales Figures for Anthem are Half Those of Andromeda in UK


    As far as physical retail sales go, Anthem was the best selling game in the UK in its first week of release.

    That's the extent of the good news.

    The bad news is that it sold roughly half of the total number of units BioWare's previous title sold in its first week. That's right, Mass "My Face is Tired" Effect Andromeda outsold BioWare's latest and, er, let's just leave it at "latest."

    Digital sales for these titles are not included in these sales figures. Meaning that the number of units sold on services like Origin for PC, or the...

  • First Look at Upcoming Dead Cells DLC

    First Look at Upcoming Dead Cells DLC


    Motion Twin released a lengthy new video today that kind of goes through the history of Dead Cells development. Included in this 12 minute long video is a look at the very first iteration of Dead Cells, which apparently began life as a "really boring" multiplayer strategy game.

    From there, the video goes on to show the evolution of the game and talk about how the studio had about a year's worth of funding left before they ran out of money. Also included in the video is the first look at the upcoming DLC for Dead Cells, which fans will undoubtedly want to check out...

    Rumor Suggests Forza, Halo, or Gears of War is Coming to Nintendo Switch


    According to a new report from Jeuxvideo.com, Microsoft may bring one of their high-profile franchises to the Nintendo Switch. The problem is, they don't really state which franchise they may bring over. Right now, they currently suggest that it could be an entry from the Forza franchise, or Halo, or even Gears of War. They also don't know if it would be a port of an older title, a new title, or a port of an Xbox One title.

    It is also being suggested that Rare titles could find their way to the Nintendo Switch. Perhaps Rare Replay? So far, this is all just rumor and may not...

  • Latest Left Alive Gameplay Video Shows a Real Struggle

    Latest Left Alive Gameplay Video Shows a Real Struggle


    The latest gameplay video for Left Alive shows you just how real the struggle is. What struggle? How real is it? These are both great questions.

    The struggle depicted in this 14-minute long gameplay video shows off how players will need to overcome the "overwhelming enemy forces" that they are up against. The trailer includes a look at various gameplay mechanics and strategies that players can employ to tackle these challenges.

    Left Alive is looking at a March 5, 2019 release on the PlayStation 4 and on PC via Steam.

  • Anthem Officially Launches Today

    Anthem Officially Launches Today


    Despite the game being available now since February 15 under some circumstances, today marks the day in which Anthem has "officially" been released. While Origin Access and EA Access subscribers have already had a chance to play and, in some cases, "complete" the game, this will be the first time most players will get to dive in.

    Today's release is accompanied by the "day one" patch, which we already provided the changelog for the other day. Anthem allows you and some friends (or random people if you prefer) to assume the role of Freelancers....

  • PUBG Teams Up with Tera and Resident Evil 2 in Bizarre Crossover Events

    PUBG Teams Up with Tera and Resident Evil 2 in Bizarre Crossover Events


    In a world where Tetris 99 exists, nothing in the world of battle royale surprises me anymore. Case in point: Today, En Mass Entertainment announced that there is a crossover event between TERA, an action oriented MMORPG, and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the popular battle royale game not called Fortnite or Apex Legends.

    This collab will run for an entire month beginning on March 5 for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This event will find Tera players "dropping-in and engaging PUBG-style BAMs." I don't know what a "BAM" is.
