Microsoft Confirms Free Online Multiplayer for Halo Infinite

Confirmed after a short bout as a rumor.

Microsoft confirmed the short-lived rumor that Halo Infinite would have free multiplayer. Not only that, but they also confirmed that Halo Infinite, at least the multiplayer component, will support 120fps on Xbox Series X. I'm sure that will also hold true for the PC release as well. Sorry Xbox One owners, you can't handle all those delicious frames. ...
 

Valve Cracks Down on Using VPNs to Buy Games Cheaper

This should hopefully lead to more fair regional pricing.

For several years now, users were able to make use of a loophole that allowed them to buy games for cheaper if purchased from certain regions. Users were able to trick Steam into thinking they lived in one region where a price of a game was more favorable to them due to exchange rates. This had the unfortunate side-effect of developers and publishers having to increase prices in these regions to put a stop to those using VPNs...

Metacritic Finally Does Away with Day One User Scores

Perhaps done in an effort to suppress user score review bombing.

According to a new report by Paul Tassi, via Forbes, Metacritic seems to be doing away with allowing users to submit scores on games until at least a day after release. Tassi notes that user scores for the just released Ghost of Tsushima only has critical scores posted for the game. The user scores are currently showing a message that user reviews will be permitted starting July 18 at 12PM (PT).

  • Final Fantasy 7 Remake Would Take Longer to Develop than the Final Fantasy 13 Trilogy

    In speaking with Joystiq, Final Fantasy producer, Yoshinori Kitase, said that while he would love to do an HD version of Final Fantasy 7, the work load would be more than the entire Final Fantasy 13 trilogy.

    Keeping in mind that the trilogy of Final Fantasy 13 games took over 10 years to develop and release and you should have a better idea of how big of a task it would be to remake Final Fantasy 7 with modern visuals and high definition audio.

  • Unofficial Gameplay Footage for The Order: 1886

    Unofficial Gameplay Footage for The Order: 1886

    Here is just the briefest glimpses of gameplay from The Order: 1886. You've already seen two new non-gameplay trailers today so why not see how the game looks in action. The footage is not direct from Sony or Ready at Dawn and may also not be direct feed either (crackling sound in places, cuts, etc.).

    It's not very telling from the footage shown if it's all narrow corridors and Telltale style quick time events, so keep your fingers crossed that the full game isn't merely Gears of...

    New Trailers for the PS4 Exclusive - The Order: 1886

    A couple of new trailers have come out today for the PlayStation 4 exclusive, The Order: 1886. Unfortunately, neither of them actually show any gameplay, but we'll get back to that in the next news post.


    The next trailer seems like a bit of a "Cliff's Notes" version of the announcement trailer from E3 2012. Just for the hell of it, we'll include it anyway.

    The Order: 1886 introduces players to a unique vision of Victorian-Era London where Man

  • PlayStation 4 has Sold over 5.3 Million Units to Date

    PlayStation 4 has Sold over 5.3 Million Units to Date

    As of February 8, the PlayStation 4 has already surpassed 5.3 million units sold throughout North America, Latin America, Europe, and a few parts of Asia. That figure is just Sony's estimate on sell-through to the end consumer, so the actual number of units sold to retailers may be a bit higher.

    Though I can't imagine the number would be that much higher since it's still next to impossible to find a PlayStation 4 in stock anywhere, at least here in the States. Last month,...

    Hard Mode Coming to FTL: Advanced Edition

    For those wondering just how the hell FTL could possibly get any harder, your guess is as good as mine. I haven't even beat the game on Easy yet and they're adding a Hard mode to the game.

  • BioShock Developer Irrational Games 'Winding Down' as Most Employees are Laid Off

    Dear Esther Dev Explains the Hidden Costs in Using the Source Engine

    Dear Esther is making the move from the Source Engine to Unity as it readies for release on the consoles. So, why the switch? Apparently there were some hidden costs associated with using the Source Engine that The Chinese Room wasn't aware of initially. Robert Briscoe explains how he received a "huge bill" for some of the middleware included in the Source Engine. He says that neither he nor his team was aware of any of the middleware of the fees associated with it. The team also h...

  • Gabe Newell Responds to Accusations Saying Valve is Spying on Your Browsing Habits

    The other day, someone made the claim that Valve is reading all of your DNS cache entries and sending those entries to Valve. What a surprise it was (not really) when it turns out that wasn't true.

    Hearing enough of this nonsense, Valve's own Gabe Newell decided to set the record straight on what VAC is and is not doing. Here is his Reddit post, reproduced in full.
    Trust is a critical part of a multiplayer game community - trust in the developer, trust in the system,
