    • With creative talent from BioWare, Ubisoft, and EA behind it, Yellow Brick Games is a new game development studio opening in Quebec, Canada with the vision of returning "back-to-basics" for next-generation hardware. The studio features recognizable industry names, including Thomas Giroux (Ubisoft, Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs), Jeff Skalski (Ubisoft, Assassin's Creed) and Frédéric St-Laurent B. (Ubisoft, Assassin's Creed) who bring their years of expertise to the new team. Perhaps most notable is the inclusion of Dragon Age creative director Mike Laidlaw, who left Ubisoft after a long tenure working on the RPG series at BioWare. Laidlaw will act as the studio's chief creative officer, guiding the team's first development endeavor. The studio is currently hiring and only features 15 employees today, which means it might be some time before you start seeing anything about its first project. Laidlaw explained that the aim of the studio was to return to smaller, agile teams that can afford every developer to have a voice in the product being created.

    • After a delay for some extra polish, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is out today, November 23. This is the first World of Warcraft expansion since 2018's somewhat controversial Battle for Azeroth, and the hype online has been palpable with players tweeting their excitement and stories about gearing up for the new release. Shadowlands Release Times 3 PM PT 6 PM ET 11 PM GMT 10 AM AEDT If you're wondering when the new expansion will be live in your area, Blizzard posted the handy infographic below of what time each region can expect to have access to Shadowlands. Folks who live in the eastern hemisphere will be able to start their Shadowlands adventures November 24 at midnight in certain timezones, while those of us in the western hemisphere will be able to play today, with folks on the US west coast getting to start earliest at 3 PM Pacific time.

    • Even though it might be just as difficult to find stock, AMD's new RX 6800 and RX 6800XT graphics cards offer come competition to Nvidia's latest offerings. But if you're planning to pick up a new GPU specifically for Cyberpunk 2077, you might want to stick to the Nvidia for now. CD Projekt Red has revealed that Cyberpunk 2077 will not support any ray tracing on AMD GPUs when the game launches on December 10. Responding to a query about requirements for AMD cards, community lead Marcin Momot explained that support will come post-launch. "Not for the release but we are working together with AMD to introduce this feature as soon as we can," Momot replied. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Square Enix has unveiled a new free-to-play Tomb Raider action arcade game coming to mobile devices in 2021. Tomb Raider Reloaded is being developed by Emerald City Games, the studio behind mobile titles like Lionheart: Dark Moon and Stormblades, and will be published by Square Enix London Mobile. Not much else is known about the game, though Square Enix said to "stay tuned for more news." The studio also shared a teaser trailer but it doesn't showcase any gameplay. The teaser trailer, above, has a very ominous atmosphere, as the camera zooms out from a suspended compass-looking item to the various monsters and traps guarding it before we see Lara Craft in her iconic green tank and brown shorts. The art style is bubbly and rounded, reminiscent of some Pixar work and quite indicative of Emerald City Games' previous titles. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Ubisoft has announced that The AbleGamers Charity is the first non-profit organization to kick off Rainbow Six Siege's Sixth Guardian Program. The studio said more in-game bundles supporting different non-profits will be available in the future. The bundle includes a uniform, weapon skin, charm, and headgear emblazoned with the orange, white, and grey AbleGamers branding. It'll be available in the in-game store at the start of Year 5 Season 4 and 100% of the proceeds, with a minimum of $6 per bundle sold, go directly to the charity. Gallery AbleGamers' director of peer support Steve Spohn said the charity is "thrilled to have the ranks of the Rainbow Six community" supporting its cause.

    • Square Enix has announced a sequel to the cult hit The World Ends With You, simply titled Neo: The World Ends With You. The game is coming to the Nintendo Switch and PS4 next summer. A debut trailer shows off the art style and combat and introduces some of the key characters. The dialogue is all delivered in Japanese--the first TWEWY canonically takes place in Shibuya--but it provides a pretty good look at the game's tone and style. The new game looks stylish like the first game, but now all in 3D with a distinctly Jet Set Radio look. The combat also appears to have been given an overhaul.

    • It's almost Black Friday, that wonderful time of year when there are deals galore on games, entertainment, and tech.

Pre-owned copies of the game are even cheaper, coming in at $25. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Diablo 3 is still going strong eight years later, and has just launched its 22nd season. As usual, the seasonal changeover brings a new theme, new loot to get, and various Legendary item and balance changes. Blizzard detailed Season 22 on the Diablo 3 blog. The new theme is the Shades of the Nephalem, which means that activating a Shrine or Pylon will spawn a shadow clone of your chosen class. The shades will last for one minute (or until you die, of course) and will scale with your character's power level. That means you'll temporarily be roughly twice as powerful, to make short work of enemies. During Season 22, you'll also get a fourth slot in Kanai's Cube to further customize your character. You'll also be able to grab cosmetic rewards that you may have missed the first time. This time, rewards from Season 10 are coming back, like pieces of the Conqueror Set, the Black Soulstone themed portraits, and the Loremaster pennant. You can also get new cosmetics for this season, the Book of Cain pet and Lost Civilization Portrait Frame. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Some Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players are reporting problems with trophies and achievements across both Xbox and PlayStation. While some bugs appear to be connected to cross-platform saves, other achievement-killing bugs have no clear origin. GameSpot’s Lucy James picked up an achievement bug that seems to have come from swapping between the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions of the game. While cross-saves are designed so that achievements and their related progress doesn’t swap between platforms, it seems that the cross-saves eventually stopped the achievement system from working at all. A thread on Reddit details a number of people having the same issue with achievements not unlocking on Xbox, but these cases don’t seem to be related to cross-saving. With a number of achievements that should be unlocked during standard moments in the game--such as one for travelling to England for the first time--some players are reporting that their accounts still show zero achievements.

    • Monster Hunter Stories 2 was announced for Switch alongside Monster Hunter Rise, with a release planned for later in 2021. The original Monster Hunter Stories released on the 3DS and for mobile, and was well received. With this in mind, fans might be wondering whether the first game is coming to Switch--and whether they should play it ahead of the sequel. In an interview with Gamereactor, producer Ryozo Tsujimoto explained that the first game is not likely to come to Switch. "There are no plans at the moment to bring the original Monster Hunter Stories to the Nintendo Switch," he said, but clarified that anyone worried that they need to know the plot of the first game for the sequel can rest easy. "I can put that fear to rest because there's a brand new protagonist and a new storyline," Tsujimoto said. "While its set in the same world, the game has absolutely been designed so that players can jump straight into Monster Hunter Stories 2." While some of the iconography in the trailer below will be familiar to fans of the first game, newcomers should be okay. Monster Hunter Rise releases for Switch on March 26, 2021, and before that there's a Monster Hunter movie releasing on Christmas day. 2021 should be a big year for Monster Hunter fans--as long as they own a Switch.
