    • A new patent filed by Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two Interactive suggests that the studio is looking into new gameplay systems to increase the situational awareness of its NPCs. The patent, titled "System And Method For Virtual Navigation In A Gaming Environment," outlines tech aimed at creating a "realistic experience" in video games by making AI smarter at detecting their environment. Specifically, the patent is targeting NPC vehicle driving behaviors. Currently in video games, NPCs can only sense a few objects in their immediate vicinity. This level of detection is typically relegated to other cars almost exclusively, which is why NPC drivers tend to not only run into each other but also into the objects found within the world. Through this new patent, though, Rockstar is looking to give NPCs a distinct driving profile. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Though the next Steam sale may be on the horizon, you don't have to wait until February to snag some great game deals for PC. Fanatical, a store that sells licensed PC game keys, just kicked off its big January Savers sale, slashing up to 90% off PC games like Persona 5 Strikers, Rainbow Six Siege, and Civilization VI. The vast majority of the games on sale are for Steam, but be sure to note the launcher before buying--some are for other platforms like Uplay. The sale notably includes discounts on Persona 5 Strikers, which releases February 23 if you opt for the standard edition. The base game is on sale for $49.19, down from $60. The Deluxe edition, however, released February 19, so you can dive in now if you pick that version up. On sale for $57.39 (down from $70), Persona 5 Strikers Deluxe edition gets you a digital art book, digital soundtrack, behind-the-scenes video, and a pair of in-game content packs, in addition to early access. (See our Persona 5 Strikers preorder guide for more details on each edition and other bonuses.) It's worth noting each version is currently full price on Steam, so you're better off taking advantage of Fanatical's deals if you plan to play on that platform. The sale includes a mix of newer games, such as Devil May Cry 5, Control: Ultimate Edition, and last year's Resident Evil 3 remake, as well as older titles like Torchlight II and Civilization VI. This is a good opportunity to snag pricier editions of games for cheap on PC, like Frostpunk: Game of the Year edition for $26 (normally $55), Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Ultimate edition for $26 (was $120), and Devil May Cry: Deluxe edition for $23 (discounted from $35).

    • When Blizzard outlined its Hearthstone Madness at the Darkmoon Fair expansion, the studio mentioned that it plans to release mini-expansions regularly. It has now unveiled the first of these planned expansions, and it's already right around the corner. The mini-expansion is called The Darkmoon Races, and it will introduce 35 new cards when it launches on January 21. As this is considered part of the Darkmoon Faire expansion, you'll have a chance of opening up the new cards with any regular Darkmoon Faire packs you open. But if you want to bypass all that, you can purchase the full mini-expansion set for $15 or 2,000 gold. With a very short reveal window, Blizzard is showing off new cards every hour through Twitter. The reveals have already included some high-powered Legendary cards, along with more Dual-Class and Spellburst cards, which were both introduced in the previous expansion, Scholomance Academy.

    • After a year and a half of early access, Shattered - Tale of the Forgotten King is officially launching next month. The action RPG will be released for PC on February 17. As seen in the new launch trailer, Tale of the Forgotten King takes place in a partially open-world, and features challenging combat against difficult enemies and larger-than-life bosses. The game's story is slowly unlocked bit by bit as you solve the world's mysteries, eventually culminating in one of five different endings. Tale of the Forgotten King sees you play as the Wanderer, who travels through a world now devoid of the king that created it. As you traverse through the game, you'll platform, fight, and puzzle-solve your way through its world, discovering the secrets to its origins. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • EA's military shooter Battlefield V will be offline briefly tomorrow, January 20, for a round of regular maintenance, the studio has announced. The maintenance period will begin at 0800 UTC and run for a period of about one hour, ending at 0900 UTC. During this period, all servers for Battlefield V will be down, meaning you can't play multiplayer. Should EA need to extend the maintenance period further, the developer will notify players. This downtime appears to be regular maintenance and not in response to a larger issue. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Leaks are everywhere in the world of video games these days, and battle royale game Apex Legends appears to be the latest victim. As first uncovered by Dexerto, the Japanese version of a recent trailer for new character Fuse says that a Switch version of the game will become available on February 2. That text was quickly scrubbed from the video description in various other languages, but fans are still holding out hope that the unintended text was a confirmation that the game is coming to Nintendo's portable console. February 2 is the day that Apex Legends Season 8 rolls out on other platforms, and it will introduce an explosive Legend named Fuse. It also adds a new weapon, the 30-30 Repeater, which bears a strong resemblance to a famous weapon from Terminator 2. The new season will bring Kings Canyon back into the fold for a limited time, with the addition of the Mirage Voyage to keep things fresh. A recent patch addressed some stability issues and revamped event skins so that aiming down sights no longer blocked the reticle. View the full article
    • Square Enix has announced that Balan Wonderworld, the action-platformer from the creators of Sonic the Hedgehog that was revealed last year at one of Nintendo's Mini Directs, will be getting a free demo available on January 28. The demo will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Steam, and Nintendo Switch. Players will be able to check it out in either single-player or with friends and family in local co-op mode. With two players, you'll be able to take control of both main characters, Leo and Emma, and can explore how their different costumes open up new paths that aren't available in single-player mode. Players will get the chance to check out three of Balan Wonderworld's 12 worlds through this demo. The first is called The Man Who Rages Against the Storm, and has two playable acts plus a boss fight. The world is a farm sprawling across rolling hills, ornamented with giant crops. Leo and Emma will meet a farmer named Jose Gallard, whose cornfield has been decimated by a storm, and will have to take on the embodiment of his despair.

    • Rust has been riding high recently, and that's led to yet another broken record for the survival game. According to Steam Charts, Rust recently punctured its previous high of 134,483 concurrent players with a jaw-dropping 244,394 concurrent players. As we've previously written, this surge in interest is due mostly to the game's increased profile on Twitch, where it's often been the most-viewed game over the past few weeks. As PCGamesN notes, while just under 250k players might sound like a lot, it's actually significantly less than the likes of Steam's other top games, including Dota 2, PUBG, and the all-time champion Counter Strike: Global Offensive. (For example, CS:GO's all-time peak is 1.3 million, according to Steam Charts.) Still, it's an impressive number for the survival game to hit, especially since its usual peak was around 50 to 100k prior to this increase in popularity. Rust's Twitch dominance shows no signs of abating. As of the time of writing, Rust is the top-streamed game on the platform, with around 450k viewers, compared to 322k for the next-highest, League of Legends. The developer behind Rust recently revealed that the game made more than $1 million in one day twice in one week, and that the game might be coming to consoles very soon View the full article
