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. ...

  • Steam Community Reportedly Blocked in China

    Steam Community Reportedly Blocked in China

    China sure does love its censorship. By that I mean actual censorship, not that fake "censorship" bullshit that people like to throw around like it's going out of style when they have no other avenue to turn to in an argument. No, we're talking about real, bonafide censorship from the Chinese government here. The latest victim appears to be the Steam Community.

    This information comes to us courtesy of ValveTime on Twitter. They pull their information from GreatFire, a website that appears to keep track of the sites and services blocked in China. From the looks of things, the Steam Community has been...

  • Black Mesa Devs Delay Xen Again But at Least They Added God Rays

    Black Mesa Devs Delay Xen Again But at Least They Added God Rays

    Oh look, Black Mesa announced another delay. This is totally shocking and unexpected. Xen is delayed (again). Oh no. Surprising. Etc.
    Straight to the bad news: we are pushing back the release of Xen. We are truly sorry for getting everyone's hopes up and then delaying... again. We worked very hard to make December, but we are not yet ready. As a team, we take FULL responsibility for that. We have an internal deadline we are confident in, and we will be getting everyone more details as we get closer to that date.
    The Black Mesa team at least released some screenshots and gifs to show you that they're actually getting ...

    Dota 2 7.07 "Dueling Fates" Update is Live

    Valve just rolled out the "Dueling Fates" update today for Dota 2, bringing the game up to version 7.07. This update adds in two new heroes: Dark Willow and Pangolier. It also includes a literal metric ton of balance changes, fixes, gameplay mechanic changes, and more.

  • Major Overhaul Coming to Steam Curators

    Major Overhaul Coming to Steam Curators

    Valve sent out word earlier that there is a major revamp coming to the Steam Curator system. To those unaware, Steam Curators is a way for actual human beings to suggest games to the Steam community at large. These Curators are typically led by people that range from influential YouTube personalities, game enthusiasts, critics, journalists, and the like.

    The system has been a mixed bag of hit and miss. A big focus for this total revamp from Valve is an overhaul in how Curators can interact with developers and publishers. Other areas of focus include the ability to directly embed videos, a big plus for those who do video reviews on YouTube. Valve provides some much needed additional details in their latest Steam announcement.

So, they put together a new "Jungle Inferno" content update for Team Fortress 2! Of the six new maps that have been announced for this update (so far), Valve created one of them!

    That map is called Mercenary Park.

    New Dust 2 Now Available in CS:GO Beta - Get Your First Look Here

    Here is your first good look at the changes that have been made to Dust 2 for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. I'm sure this is probably the first of many, many, many, many, many, many, many times you will see the updated Dust 2. See, because the joke is Dust 2 is played a lot.

    Valve put up a rather lovely guide that both shows and explains the changes they made to several key areas of Dust 2. For example, here is just a bit on the overall art improvement that they made.

  • CS:GO Dust 2 Getting a Makeover Soon

    CS:GO Dust 2 Getting a Makeover Soon

    The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive developer Twitter just sent out word (two hours ago) that Dust 2 is getting a lovely makeover soon.

    The tweet states that the updated version of the map will be released for testing via the next beta depot for CS:GO. While I'll try to keep an eye out for it, chances are the diehard fans out there will know about it long before I ever get news up about it anyway.

    From the looks of the included image, Valve seems to be returning to the old school 4:3 aspect ratio for this update. Exciting!
