This particular stream should have some interesting reveals. In a recent blog post celebrated 15 years of Assassin's Creed, the publisher confirmed that it will reveal something related to Assassin's Creed in September.

Today Square Enix announced that its new RPG Forspoken has been delayed to January 24, 2023 on all platforms. This marks the second major delay for the hack-and-slash fantasy game, which was originally supposed to launch in October 2022.

The delay apparently isn't because of internal issues. The developers at Luminous Productions say that Forspoken is finished and is currently being polished, and say the delay is because of a consensus it made with its partners.

GTA IV, RDR1 remasters cancelled, Rockstar focused on GTA 6

Derek Strickland | Gaming | Wed, Jul 6 2022 12:29 PM CDT

Rockstar Games has cancelled any plans for Grand Theft Auto IV or Red Dead Redemption remasters so it can exclusively focus on GTA 6's development.

Grand Theft Auto 6 has Rockstar's full attention, and the studio may not release any mainline games until after GTA 6 launches. A bit ago, renowned insider Tez2 was told be a reliable source that RDR1 and GTA IV remasters were on the drawing board at Rockstar Games. Then the disastrous GTA remaster tanked the collective goodwill with the developer, which was already in lower spirits partly because of Red Dead Online's sparse updates.

Now sources tell Kotaku that the GTA giant is narrowing its AAA vision to GTA 6, which is rightly so given the massive importance of the project. Kotaku's sources say that new remasters aren't "out of scope" and could happen at some point...just not any time soon.

Tesla unveils new 'range extender trailer' with solar panels and more

Adam Hunt | Technology in Vehicles | Wed, Jul 6 2022 9:58 AM CDT

Tesla has shown off a new "solar range extender trailer" at the IdeenExpo in Hanover, Germany.

The solar-panel-laden trailer also has a Starlink internet system to connect with the satellites in SpaceX's network. Electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers like Lightyear have produced cars with their own solar panels built in, however, Tesla seems to be taking a different route to extending the range of its vehicles.

The relatively low efficiency of solar technology means such vehicles can't significantly extend their range beyond what the inbuilt battery capacity offers. However, some owners of other EVs have still opted to augment their experience by using separate, portable solar panels for charging their vehicles.

Spanish authorities seize huge drug-smuggling underwater drones

Adam Hunt | Drones | Wed, Jul 6 2022 9:05 AM CDT

The Spanish National Police released footage from the seizure on July 4th, 2022.

A 14-month investigation has resulted in the arrest of eight people across Spain; in Cadiz, Malaga, and Barcelona. Spanish police confiscated three large underwater drones used for smuggling drugs from Morocco across the Strait of Gibraltar, a narrow strip of the sea only 13 kilometers (8 miles) wide, separating Morocco from Spain. It is the first discovery by the Spanish police of remotely-operable submersible vehicles.

Only one of the submersible drones was fully built, with the other two still being constructed by the gang operating them, which are believed to have been intended for delivery to a French gang. Each submersible can allegedly transport up to 200 kilograms (441 pounds) of cargo. The police also seized six "large aerial drones," rounding out 13 different vehicle types found in the gang's possession.

NASA accuses China of planning to 'take over' the Moon, China responds

Adam Hunt | Science, Space, Health & Robotics | Wed, Jul 6 2022 7:53 AM CDT

Bill Nelson, the Administrator of NASA, has been vocal about being wary of China's space program, including its activity regarding the Moon.

Nelson recently spoke with German newspaper Bild, stating "we must be very concerned that China is landing on the moon and saying: 'It's ours now and you stay out'," during an interview published on July 2nd, 2022. He went on to describe the Chinese space program as a military endeavor, and reiterated sentiments he has previously expressed about China's apparent penchant for stealing technology and more.

Nelson's remarks have drawn the ire of Beijing, with Zhao Lijian, a spokesman at the Chinese foreign ministry, describing them as a continuation of a "smear campaign against China's normal and reasonable outer space endeavors" by the United States. Lijian also said that "China firmly opposes such irresponsible remarks."

Cosmonauts use space station to display 'anti-Ukraine propaganda'

The International Space Station (ISS) and its crew have thus far kept the situation in Ukraine from interfering with their work and relationships.

Nevertheless, on Monday July 4th, 2022, just over four months out from Russia's invasion of Ukraine, new photographs from aboard the space station have been shared on Telegram by Roscosmos, Russia's state space corporation. Featured in the images are the cosmonauts Oleg Artemyev, Denis Matveyev, and Sergey Korsakov, holding the flags of the Luhansk People's Republic and the Donetsk People's Republic.

"This is a long-awaited day that residents of the occupied areas of the Luhansk region have been waiting for eight years. We are confident that July 3, 2022, will forever go down in the history of the republic," the Roscosmos Telegram post read.

Three brand-new particles discovered by the Large Hadron Collider

CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is back up and running after a three year hiatus, operating at its highest power yet.

Three brand-new particles discovered by the Large Hadron Collider 01 | TweakTown.com

Now, the LHCb experiment at the LHC has observed three never-before-seen

particles: a new type of pentaquark, and two new tetraquarks. Quarks are elementary particles that combine to make hadrons, the most common of which are protons and neutrons, found inside the nucleus of atoms. Six different kinds of quarks exist, the up, down, charm, strange, top, and bottom quarks, and the LHC has been able to observe new combinations of them in four (tetra-) and five (penta-) arrangements.

Protons and neutrons are made from a combination of three up and down quarks, however, exotic hadrons like the newly discovered tetraquarks and pentaquarks contain less common quarks. The new pentaquark contains a charm quark, a charm antiquark (the antimatter equivalent of a charm quark), an up, a down, and a strange quark, making it the first pentaquark observed to be made with a strange quark.

Intel's rebranded 7nm node, Intel 4, enters mass production in 2H 2022

Anthony Garreffa | CPU, APU & Chipsets | Wed, Jul 6 2022 2:31 AM CDT

Intel's next-gen "Intel 4" process is on track heading into volume production in 2H 2022, according to the very latest information from DigiTimes.

The site reports that "Intel 4, formally known as Intel's 7nm process, is on track to get ready for volume production in the second half of 2022, according to the chip vendor". Intel has been lagging behind in its process node for years now, but have slowly been playing catch up... the Intel 4 process node is a re-branded Intel 7nm node, just so you know.

But, the new Intel 4 process node is the star of the show when it comes to the next-gen 14th Gen Core "Meteor Lake" CPU series, which will be launching in 2023. Intel will also be using its upcoming Intel 4 process node for its enterprise-level Granite Rapids CPUs, too.
