    • After a leave of absence from Ubisoft in June, former creative director on Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Ashraf Ismail, has now been fired. This follows an external investigation into his inappropriate relationships with community members. Ismail's termination has been communicated to employees at Ubisoft Montreal through a company-wide email, which Kotaku has obtained a copy of. Although the letter doesn't specifically state why Ismail was fired, it does note that it comes after an external investigation into allegations brought against him left no other choice. "Following an investigation by an external firm, it was determined that Ashraf's employment with Ubisoft had to be terminated," reads the message. "We cannot provide any details about this confidential investigation." Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Two new Warner Bros. games are set to be unveiled at DC FanDome on August 22, including the newly-announced Suicide Squad game from Rocksteady Games, the developer of Batman: Arkham Knight. The other game will be from Warner Bros. Montreal, developer of spin-off Batman: Arkham Origins. The WB Montreal reveal is one of the first events of the day, scheduled for 10:30 AM PT, and will take 20 minutes. "You won't want to miss this first look at an exciting new game and Q&A with its developers," the description reads. The studio has been teasing what looks like a new Batman game for some time now, and they've used the phrase "Capture the Knight" in their hints. Back in May, the studio tweeted that it was not ready to show its next project just yet. One popular theory is that the game will feature the Court of Owls, the shadowy cabal introduced in Scott Snyder's opening run of The New 52 reboot of Batman. We'll finally know for sure soon.

    • Horizon Zero Dawn launched on PC earlier this month and the former PlayStation 4 exclusive hasn't had a smooth ride on its new platform thus far. Some notable issues have held back the PC version, but developer Guerrilla Games announced last week that it's trying to fix the crashes and other technical issues many players have encountered since launch. That begins today, as patch 1.01 is now live. While the latest update doesn't fix everything, Guerrilla has outlined some of the high priority issues it's currently working on. For instance, patch 1.01 fixes some of the game's start-up crashes but not all of them, so this is something the studio is hoping to address in future updates. There are also some GPU-related hangs during gameplay, performance issues on specific GPUs and hardware combinations, and graphical settings issues such as 4K not displaying correctly or anisotropic filtering not working, that are being worked on. Aside from this, patch 1.01 does fix a number of issues related to functionality, improved diagnostic data, and more. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Dying Light: Hellraid is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The latest piece of DLC for Dying Light--the six-year-old open-world zombie game--is actually a revival of sorts for developer Techland. The studio was working on a fully-fledged Hellraid game before it began development on Dying Light, but the project was ultimately put on hold as the team consolidated its resources to focus on the future of its zombie game. Now it lives again like the reanimated corpse of a famished zombie. Hellraid begins with the discovery of a mysterious arcade cabinet in the basement of Dying Light's first hub area. No one in the Tower knows where it came from, but it opens up a gateway to another realm that transports you from the familiar streets of Harran and into a demon-infested dungeon. You'll wield medieval swords, axes, and hammers to fend off the hordes of skeletons and otherworldly monstrosities out to kill you. There are bounties to pick up to earn additional prizes for repeated runs through the dungeon, and the whole thing can be played either solo or with up to three other players.

    • Resident Evil 7 has become the best-selling individual Resident Evil release, selling 7.9 million copies across PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This also makes it the second best-selling game ever released by Capcom, behind Monster Hunter World (16.1 million units). There are, however, some caveats behind these numbers, and it's perhaps not really their second-best selling game. The Capcom "Platinum Titles" list, which includes every game in their catalog to sell over 1 million copies, gives us a good look at the best-selling Capcom games, although how each individual game is "counted" seems to vary. For Resident Evil 7, we assume that the total figure includes sales of the "Gold" edition, which bundled together all the DLC, as it's not included elsewhere; other games in the series have divided their sales across multiple releases. This means that, technically, Resident Evil 4-6 have all sold better than 7 over their lifetimes, although their sales have spread across multiple releases and console generations. This could change if we get an updated version of Resident Evil 7 on future consoles. The way Resident Evil titles track their figures makes it difficult to get a full and complete picture of how well they've sold--individual releases are tracked seperately, and Capcom only releases sales figures for games that have sold over a million copies. We can get a better idea of their sales by combining these numbers. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Control is getting its second expansion, AWE, on August 27, and it'll draw a direct connection between the game and Remedy's Xbox 360 hit Alan Wake. To celebrate, Remedy hosted a stream to show off the expansion's opening, and during it they shared some information about a major patch coming to the base game alongside AWE. The expansion gameplay starts at about the 18 minute mark of the video below, which is taken from the PS4 version. The game's developers give some commentary over the footage, and the first Alan Wake reference comes basically right away. During the demo, the free update is discussed, and it's going to make the game a bit easier to move through. Your Launch ability will now be able to pick up three objects, for instance, which gives Jesse a bit more power. There will be more Control Points added near bosses and other big fights to cut back on walking, as well as more "soft checkpoints"--meaning that if you die, you won't need to face certain combat encounters again. You'll also be able to use "assist mode" to make the game much easier to play--it essentially gives you a high degree of customization on the difficulty, so that everyone has a chance to play through the full game and finish it.

    • Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game was delisted from the Xbox 360 and PS3 digital stores at the end of 2014, and since then there's been a lot of call to bring the fan-favorite game back. In May, tweets from writer Bryan O'Malley, film director Edgar Wright, and Ubisoft seemed to hint at the possibility, but we're yet to hear anything firm. But there's some reason for hope of the game's return. Now, as the campaign continues to grow, there's been a hint of actual discussion taking place about the game's return. After Kotaku posted an article about the game being unavailable, which was shared on Twitter by Anamanaguchi (the band behind the game's iconic soundtrack), a new wave of discussion started. This has been further exacerbated by the fact that August 13 (today) is the 10 year anniversary of Edgar Wright's film adaptation of Bryan O'Malley's original book. On Twitter, O'Malley has given us some hope with a short, sharp tweet, indicating that Ubisoft has reached out to him to discuss the game. Although the author's Twitter account is fairly new, a high portion of his tweets have been about the game, and the fact that Ubisoft had, up until now, not spoken to him about it.

    • Fortnite has been removed from the Apple App Store and Google Play, but that doesn't mean you can't play it on mobile devices at all. If you're a mobile gamer wondering if you can still play Fortnite on your iOS or Android device, here's everything you need to know. Can You Still Play Fortnite on iOS/iPhone/iPad? The short answer is: Yes. If you already have Fortnite installed on your iOS device, like your iPhone or iPad, you can continue to play it. However, you will be limited to the latest version you have on your phone. The most recent version is update 13.40 from Chapter 2, Season 3. Once Chapter 2, Season 4 goes live, you will not be able to access any new content, including the new Battle Pass. You will be able to continue playing the older version, however. If you have never downloaded Fortnite on your iPhone or iPad, there is no way to do a fresh install of Fortnite on iOS at this time. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Epic Games and Apple are feuding over a move the Fortnite developer made without Apple's approval, which resulted in the removal of Fortnite from the App Store. If you've seen #FreeFortnite trending on social media or caught that Nineteen Eighty-Fortnite video Epic posted, you're probably wondering what happened. Here's a quick breakdown. What Did Fortnite Do To Make Apple Mad? On Thursday, August 13, Epic Games introduced its own direct, in-app payment system for Fortnite across all platforms. Called the Fortnite Mega Drop, the new system implemented permanent discounts of up to 20% on V-bucks, Fortnite's in-game currency. On PC and console, this isn't a problem, but on mobile devices, things get a little more controversial. Fortnite's new direct payment method on iOS devices, prior to App Store removal.Both Apple's App Store and the Google Play Store collect a 30% fee from in-game purchases on their platforms. The new payment system gives players a choice between processing their in-app purchase through Apple (on iOS) or Google (on Android), thus paying a few dollars more and allowing Apple or Google to take their usual cut, or bypassing this step altogether and paying a lower price directly to Epic. By introducing a direct payment system that sidesteps Apple's fee, Epic Games has violated the App Store guidelines. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Final Fantasy XIV's Moonfire Faire is now underway, but that's not the only event players will be able to take part in this month. Square Enix has announced that FFXIV's Yo-kai Watch collaboration is also returning soon, and it will feature new weapons, mounts, and more exclusive rewards to earn. To begin the Yo-kai Watch quest, you'll need to speak to the poor-heeled youth at the Steps of Nald in Ul'dah. You'll need to have a character that's at least level 15 to accept the mission and have completed one of the three following main story quests: The Gridanian Envoy The Lominsan Envoy The Ul'dahn Envoy Upon completing the Yo-kai Watch quest, you'll receive the Yo-kai Watch itself as well as the Yo-kai Medallium, which will allow you to collect different Yo-kai Medals. Turn these medals over to the wandering executive at the Gold Saucer and you'll be able to befriend their respective Yo-kai and summon them as minions.
