Respawn CEO Teases Titanfall-Based Apex Legends During Superbowl LIII – Here’s What We Know

We’ve known for a while that Respawn was working on another Titanfall game. We were hoping it was a follow-up to Titanfall 2, however, it looks like it’ll actually be Apex Legends. The game is billed as a free-to-play battle royal shooter that’s based on Titanfall but won’t feature any actual Titans, if that makes sense. Outside of a broken embargo by YouTuber TheQuartering and tons of rumors we weren’t even sure if Apex Legends was real. Now, during Superbowl LIII, Respawn CEO, Vince Zampella, posted the following tweet: https://twitter.com/VinceZampella/status/1092224787928080385 Not long after that, he posted another tweet that shows off a very vague, peripheral view of his monitor as he plays none other than Apex Legends: https://twitter.com/VinceZampella/status/1092259339023220736 Of course, we knew this was coming. EA flew a whole bunch of streamers and YouTubers, and paid them, to participate in a secret event in Los Angeles last week where they all got to play the game. Tonight, almost at the same time as Zampella’s tweet, all of them started posting on...

Anthem’s Public Demo Works Better Than the VIP Demo But BioWare Still Has a Lot of Work to Do

Let’s just get it out now – BioWare’s VIP demo for Anthem was, well, horrible. It didn’t work for some, for others, it was good for little more than saying you checked it out. Even if you managed to log into a server, you were met with bug after bug. The public demo is now live (and will be for a little longer,) and it’s in much better shape. It’s pretty clear that designers and programmers worked around the clock to get the demo into a more playable state. There is, however, still some concern as it’s still buggy as hell, and that’s putting it nicely. Anthem’s Servers Held Up During the Demo Surprisingly, after all of the server issues the Anthem VIP demo experienced, the servers held strong during the public demo. In fact, we haven’t heard of anyone having those log-in or blank screen issues this weekend. So, despite the floodgates being cracked open to an even larger crowd, developers were able to keep things running full...

WRC 8 To Hit the Shelves in September 2018 With Better Graphics, Enhanced Career Mode, and More Drivers

With games like Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon consuming so much of our time, it’s easy to forget that we once had a lot of love for another car game – WRC. The last installment hit shelves back in 2017 and was, well, okay at best. It was criticized for a number of things, including a lack of drivers, technical routes, and a not-so-great career mode. Now, two years later, we finally have confirmation that Bigben and Kylotonn have a new WRC game in the works – aptly called WRC8 – that should address these issues and even more. According to a recent press release, the two companies soaked up all the mediocre reviews for the last WRC game and have used the last two years to put together a new product that should include better graphics, more comprehensive career mode, and more realistic physics, among other things. All official teams from the 2019 WRC roster will be included int eh game, including Sebastien Ogier, Esapekka Lappi, and Sebastien Loeb. Even better yet, WRC 8 will include the selection of WRC...

PlayerUnknown’s Battleground Could Soon Be Free-to-Play

PlayerUnknown’s Battleground has two big flaws – the first being that you have to actually buy the game, and the second being that it requires some serious hardware to run on PC. That present state of the game could eventually fade away, at least to an extent as PUBG has begun testing a free-to-play version that will operate more like the game’s primary competitor, Fortnite. For now, the free-to-play version, which will go by the name “PUBG Lite,” is only available in Thailand during the beta testing phase, which will, ultimately, determine whether or not the game is released into other regions. The “lite” version of the game is, essentially, that – lighter. It will still require a 64-bit version of Windows7,8, or 10, but will only require a Core i3 processor running at 2.4 GHz, 4GB of Ram, and Intel HD Graphics 4000 or compatible. Hard drive space required will be shrunken down to just 4GB, at least at first, anyway. Of course, the recommended specs (as you can see below) are a little higher,...

The Most Anticipated Games Coming to PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC in 2019

Far Cry New Dawn https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBWJynT6aPg Far Cry New Dawn is Ubisoft’s surprise spin-off that follows up Far Cry 5. In Essence, you’ll return to Hope County where you’ll experience a re-imagined map in a time long after the events that took place in Far Cry 5. For now, we assume that it’s basically a re-boot of Far Cry 5 with a new storyline, new antagonists, and slightly better graphics. Like always, it’ll be an open-world, post-apocalyptic, first-person shooter, so it’ll be fun either way. It’ll be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC and will go on sale on February 15th, 2019 Metro Exodus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75reTxXD5SA Metro Exodus is the third installment to the series based on the Metro Books written by Dmitry Glukhovsky. It is, essentially a successor to Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light. Like Far Cry and Fallout, it’s set in a post-apocalyptic world with the main focus of heading toward east Russia on a mission to find safe...

Campaign Play Comes Back to Call of Duty, and it Could be Another Modern Warfare

If you’re like a lot of people and are just tired of futuristic shooters, then the 2019 Call of Duty release could be the bandage that finally heals your wound. The news broke during an earnings call with investors – the same one that announced the firing of 800 employees – and it was said that Call of Duty could continue with its usual three-year development cycle. That means that Infinity Ward is taking the reigns on this year's release and it’s been said that the new game will be “rooted” in franchise history. That says a lot but, at the same time, Infinity Ward hasn’t exactly wowed the world with the last few CoD games. How do you climb out of that hole? Well, you bring back a fan favorite – Modern Warfare. I wouldn’t hold my breath for a reboot of Modern Warfare II, despite the fact that many of us would love to see it, but it could end up being just as good if not better. Now, all of these does coincide with rumors and...

THE ROG ZEPHYRUS S (GX531) TAKES SLIM AND POWER TO ALL-NEW LEVELS

At a mere 14.95~15.75mm thin, Zephyrus S is 12% slimmer than the original Zephyrus (GX501). It’s equipped with the latest Intel® Core™ i7-8750H CPU and up to NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1070 Max-Q graphics, making it ideal for work or play. Super-narrow bezels squeeze a 15.6-inch display, with a 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time, into a 14.2-inch chassis. The all-metal chassis is strong enough to meet military-grade durability standards without compromising on design, with sleek lines and a premium finish. An advanced cooling system ensures optimal performance of all components, incorporating the proprietary Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) — a design and engineering hallmark of the Zephyrus series. ALL-METAL CHASSIS COMBINES DESIGN WITH FUNCTION  One of the biggest challenges with creating such a thin laptop is making sure that the chassis strikes the best balance between strength and weight: Zephyrus S uses a mix of aluminum and magnesium alloys in its construction to achieve this balance. Each lid is meticulously...

BioWare’s Anthem VIP Demo Weekend Didn’t Go Well, and There’s a Huge List of Fixes Coming for the Full Game

Anthem’s VIP demo kicked off last Friday and lasted through the weekend, but many found it too troublesome to even play. Some players couldn’t get in, and those that did, experienced all kinds of issues ranging from lack of overall performance to crashing. BioWare, naturally, sprung into action to address concerns for those on PCs but, at the end of the day, it wouldn’t be good enough, as there were also server capacity issues at hand. Fortunately, this was only a VIP demo, and there’s still a public demo on the way. That will give some players a better chance to get in and slaughter some grabbits, but don’t expect it to be a problem-free experience either. Accord to Chad Robertson, BioWare’s Head of Live Service, Claims there’s a lot of work that still needs to be done after an “eventful” weekend. In a summary of the weekend, he said that severs were stabilized on Saturday afternoon and his team managed to maintain that stability through the rest of the VIP demo period. The servers turned off Sunday evening as the Live Service...

Metro Exodus Developer Claims the Next Metro Won’t Come to PC After Bad Reviews; Metro Publishers Quickly Put Him in His Place

After it was announced that Metro Exodus would be released through the Epic Games Store as opposed to Steam, PC gamers all over the world went on digital strike. It took just minutes for bad reviews to start showing up on steam as everyone tried to protest the change in release platform. Boycotting of the game has been in full effect since, with Steam taking hundreds of bad reviews for Metro Exodus. Not long after that, a 4A Games developer that goes by the handle “scynet” on gameru forums posted a rant in Russian that included, among other things, a claim that if PC gamers boycott the game the next in the series certainly won’t make it to the PC. “But! Consider the situation deeper. Someone says that they say they crap Exodus and the previous games in the series, it will make the world better, they will put greedy developers in their place. To this, I can answer that in a pinch, if at all all the PC players announce a boycott of the Metro, then the next metro,...
