PUBG's new update includes ranking system and SO MUCH MORE

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 2 hours, 39 mins ago

Today is a big day for games, with Fortnite celebrating over 78 million monthly users and Rocket League flying past 50 million players... but what about PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds? PUBG has some exciting things going on, with it all centered around the new PUBG PC update 22.

PUBG's new update adds what gamers have been asking about for a very long time now: a ranking system, but it also gives you the chance to trade low-level skins that you don't want, need, or use anymore. On top of that, PUBG Corp. has made some changes to the UI and menu, and much more underneath the game.

 

As for the new PUBG Rank System, there will be 8 tiers:

 

  • Grandmaster
  • Master
  • Elite
  • Diamond
  • Platinum
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Bronze

Rocket League flies past 50 million players

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 3 hours, 36 mins ago

I'm sure most gamers have heard about Rocket League by now, with the game launching four years ago now and has since amassed 50 million player across the world, something the official Twitter account celebrated in the last 24 hours.

 

 

Rocket League developer Psyonix isn't looking at making a sequel to the game yet, even though it is home to over 50 million players, but they are instead looking at the future of Rocket League with a games-as-a-service perspective. Psyonix explained: "That's preferable to do; games-as-a-service. The most valuable thing in our game is our fans. A lot of the stuff we do is focused on keeping them with us. Keeping them interested and all hyped up about our game. We want to provide a really good experience [for players] to have fun with for years to come".

 

The developer continued: "We want to keep this going. I don't know what I'd do with Rocket League 2. I'd rather do more to expand the existing Rocket League. It's doing great, there is a lot ahead of it. So yeah, we have no plans for Rocket League 2".

Fortnite now has an insane 78 million monthly players

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 4 hours, 36 mins ago

Epic Games has announced that Fortnite had a huge month in August, with an insane 78.3 million players getting into the Unreal Engine-powered phenomenon last month alone.

 

fortnite-now-insane-78-million-monthly-players_01

 

If we compare Fortnite's monthly numbers against other huge games, we can see just how quickly the game is dominating the world. Minecraft was home to 74 million players in December, while in 2016 we saw 100 million active players in League of Legends. The streaming community has totally embraced Fortnite, with major Twitch streamers like Ninja joining the fray, as well as the constant flow of updates that Epic pushes into the world of Fortnite keep players coming back.

 

Fortnite Season 6 kicks off soon, with the big purple cube landing in Loot Lake and causing a kerfuffle. Are you playing Fortnite and are one of those huge 78.3 million people playing it each month? Let us know in the comments below.

Devil May Cry 5 won't require high-end GPU

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 6 hours, 37 mins ago

Capcom has updated Devil May Cry 5's Steam page with PC spec requirements, and they're not too bad.

 

 

Devil May Cry 5 should be pretty friendly for PC rigs outfitted with lower-end GPUs. The game's spec requirements are conservative in some areas, but you'll need at least an Intel Core i7-4770 to play as well as 8GB of RAM. GPU-wise you can skirt away with a GTX 760. Recommended specs include an Intel Core i7-4470 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 or better. This is particularly interesting given Devil May Cry 5 was built off of Capcom's proprietary RE Engine, which powered Resident Evil 7 and had some pretty awesome visuals.

 

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

 

MINIMUM:

 

  • OS: WINDOWS 7 (64-BIT Required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4770 3.4GHz or better
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX760 or better
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 35 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: *Controllers recommended *Internet connection required for game activation.

 

RECOMMENDED:

 

  • OS: WINDOWS 7 (64-BIT Required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4770 3.4GHz or better
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX960 or better
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 35 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: *Controllers recommended *Internet connection required for game activation.

Red Dead Redemption 2 gets tons of new screenshots

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 7 hours, 36 mins ago

Today Rockstar unloaded an entire carriage of Red Dead Redemption 2 screenshots, giving more insight into its sprawling new Western story.

 

red-dead-redemption-2-gets-tons-new-screenshots_400

 

The more I see and hear about Red Dead Redemption 2, the more excited I get. With its grim and somber tone set against a desperate, brutal backdrop of murder and mayhem, the game's story has already captured my imagination. But there's much, much more to Rockstar's new game, including a huge open-ended world filled with reactive and dynamic characters, interesting towns that adapt to the century-turning revolution, and massive freedom that lets us take Arthur Morgan wherever we choose.

 

There's also the new first-person mode that'll ship with the game. This essentially lets us walk around in Arthur's spur-heeled boots and gun down whoever we want--and live with or die by the consequences--all in a kind of FPS-like experience. Then of course there's the new Red Dead Online multiplayer mode, which mirrors GTA Online but also incorporates both PVP competitive action with PVE-style co-op, all of which is intertwined with story-driven narrative elements. Red Dead Online will launch as a beta in November, a month after the game ships.

 

Red Dead Redemption 2 launches on October 26, 2018 on PS4 and Xbox One.

Red Dead Redemption 2 can transform into a FPS

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 8 hours, 43 mins ago

Rockstar will let us see through the red-dead eyes of a harrier gunslinger in its latest Western adventure.

 

red-dead-redemption-2-transform-fps_7547

 

Similar to GTA V, Red Dead Redemption 2 can transform into a first-person shooter at any in-game moment. The game will ship with a first-person view mode that connects players even more to the outlaw Arthur Morgan, and offers some interesting possibilities for exploration in Rockstar's impressive-looking 1899 Western frontier. This should add a more intimate dimension to the singleplayer-driven experience itself while immersing players into the spur-heeled boots of a hardened desperado.

 

I'm curious how adept the gunfights will be in first-person, but remember it's Rockstar we're talking about...so things should be pretty fine-tuned. Everything except cutscenes can be played in first-person, including horseback riding, character interactions/dialog sequences, roaring shootouts, mini-games, and much more.

Spider-Man is the fastest-selling PS4 exclusive of all time

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 9 hours, 30 mins ago

With Spider-Man, Insomniac Games steals the fastest-selling game milestone from Sony Santa Monica.

 

spider-man-fastest-selling-ps4-exclusive-time_6634

 

Insomniac's new Spider-Man game has now sold over 3.3 million copies in its first three days, Sony today announced, making it the fastest-selling PS4 exclusive of all time. The previous record was held by the latest Norse mythology-based God of War game, which sold 3.1 million copies in three days.

 

"Marvel's Spider-Man is setting records! It's now the fastest-selling first-party PlayStation title, selling over 3.3 million in its first 3 days," Sony said on Twitter.

 

We're noticing a trend here. Sony's bet on big-budget PS4 exclusives is paying off big time insofar as game sales and notoriety, proving that singleplayer-driven experiences are still major points of interest to consumers. In a sea of online-based live service games with microtransactions and engagement strategies, this is a refreshing (and possibly sobering to publishers like EA) reminder.

Sony has no plans to make new PS Vita

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 10 hours, 44 mins ago

Sony's ill-fated PlayStation Vita is winding down its ticker, and the company won't make another one any time soon.

 

sony-plans-make-new-ps-vita_664

 

Despite selling quite well in Japan, the PS Vita handheld failed to capture overseas markets, even with PS4 ecosystem integration and cross-platform features. As a result Sony pretty much abandoned the system and plans to stop shipping the device in 2019. Due to a number of conditions--including mobile gaming initiatives--Sony currently has no plans to make a next-gen Vita handheld.

 

"Right now, I'd like you to consider that there is no PS Vita successor hardware. As for a portable game machine, there is no plans for anything after the PS Vita," Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan's Hiroyuki Oda told Mantan Web (as translated by Kotaku).

 

It seems Sony's recent handheld patent, which looks like a Vita crossed with a Nintendo Switch, could simply stay on paper for the foreseeable future.
