    • Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is getting a Game of the Year Edition, and unlike many similar releases, this one is free for existing players and is for a game that actually earned game of the year awards. You only have a few more days to wait until you can play it, and a new trailer shows off the One-Armed Wolf as he clashes with dangerous enemies. On October 28 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice players will be able to download a free update that unlocks the Game of the Year Edition content. This includes previously promised boss challenge modes as well as player records and extra skins. There are actually two different boss challenges included in the update. Reflection of Strength allows you to replay one of your favorite boss fights again, and it's a feature that we'd like to see in From Software's other games instead of having to completely replay a game. Gauntlet of Strength is more of a boss rush mode, pitting you against one boss after another without any extra lives. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • When the Xbox Series X was first announced, the memes began almost immediately. Its design resembles a PC tower, or at least that appears to be Microsoft's goal, but it also looks like a refrigerator. The company has fully leaned into the joke, however, and presented Snoop Dogg with a working Xbox Series X fridge. In a video deleted from Snoop Dogg's Instagram but saved by deals guru Wario64 on Twitter, the rapper showed off the fridge's design. It features a glowing Xbox logo that looks like the power button on the real console. Inside, Xbox stocked it with an Xbox Series X cake for his birthday, which was earlier this week. There is also gin and juice, for obvious reasons, and even some Xbox necklaces. We’re going to assume that unlike the actual console, you can't turn the fridge on its side--at least not without spilling everything inside. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Genshin Impact has undoubtedly had an eventful first month of operation, with millions of players globally jumping into the world of Teyvat. With the passage of time comes the first change of the promo banner for Wishes and an introduction of a new five-star character, Klee. Klee is the featured character on this new promo banner, titled Sparkling Steps. Though you may have already been introduced to Klee and her abilities in the quest "The Mystery of the Girl in Red's Treasure," this is the first chance you have to recruit her permanently. The odds haven't changed for Sparkling Steps compared to the previous banner--your chances of a 5-star roll are still quite low at 0.6%. But, as with the previous banner, if you do roll a 5-Star character, there is a 50% chance of it being Klee. The "Pity Roll" mechanics also come into play here, so if you really want Klee, you can pour all of your resources into Wishing multiple times to have a better chance. (Also, if you didn't roll a 5-star unit on the last promo banner featuring Venti, the accumulated rolls from that banner will carry over onto this one, making a Pity Roll easier to trip.)

    • I usually try to hop on Among Us once a week to link up with my friends back home and get rowdy either trying to get away with virtual murder or ratting each other out. But they like to keep things spicy. So, they put together a sort of alternate game mode by customizing the in-game rules and getting us to follow certain gameplay etiquette. And with the vewy scawy Halloween season right around the corner, this makeshift game mode is quite fitting and helps freshen up the traditional paces of Among Us. Basically, think Dead By Daylight, or any similar game, but in Among Us. Here's the setup: you have one imposter and nine (or however many) crewmates, but the imposter announces who they are right at the beginning of the match. The imposter counts to 10 while the crewmates scramble to get out of sight, complete tasks, hide, and make mad dashes to dodge the imposter once they start hunting down the crew--there's no voting phase necessary, just survival. What makes this style of play work is the tweaking of the custom rules. Here, you'll want to have the imposter's kill cooldown timer set to the lowest possible (10 seconds) so they can really act like a serial killer. However, you'll have to limit their vision range as low as possible (0.25x) to make it challenging for them to actually find crewmates. To make things a lot more thrilling, we set all players' movement speed higher (at least 2x, but 3x works too). Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Electronic Arts has provided an update on Apex Legends for Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam, confirming when the battle royale launches on both platforms. Apex Legends hits Steam on November 4. Origin players can switch back and forth between that and Steam, letting you transfer all progress and unlocks between the two. Meanwhile, Steam players will get free Half-Life and Portal gun charms for logging in during Season 7. The new Apex Legends season also starts on November 4, the same day the game hits Steam. EA said the Nintendo Switch port of Apex Legends has been delayed to 2021. An exact release date or window has yet to be announced. Game director Chad Grenier said the "unexpected new challenges" of this year impacted the game's development on Switch. Whenever the game drops on the console-handheld hybrid, it will come with "full feature parity with the other versions of the game," including cross-platform support and the latest seasonal content.

    • The hit game Among Us has been hit with a hack that both advertises a streaming channel and sends a political message. The studio InnerSloth was forced to issue a hasty patch in response to the hacks. The hack would spam text chat messages advertising a streamer and threatening to damage your phone if you don't subscribe. It ended with a "TRUMP 2020" message. The hack became widespread rather quickly, with some players estimating it had afflicted hundreds or even thousands of matches. InnerSloth issued a statement via Twitter saying it was "super duper aware" of the issue. It announced an emergency server update and encouraged players to stick to private games in the meantime. Programmer Forest Willard later explained that the update had taken some time so as to avoid false positives, to prevent the game from wrongly identifying a hack.

    • Back in August, I had the chance to play Little Nightmares II, and in my preview I talked about the uneasy trust between main characters Mono and Six. I theorized it could present a new kind of fear for the series--if you can't fully trust your partner, then you're never really safe. But having now gotten a chance to play another preview of Little Nightmares II, I'm beginning to wonder exactly how much Mono and Six's partnership factors into the game. The new demo takes place in the Hospital environment, which seems to pop up much further into the game than the Forest area seen in the first demo--Six has her trademark yellow raincoat in the Hospital, something she didn't have prior to Mono meeting her in the Forest. Both Mono and Six need to go down an elevator, but it doesn't have power. A nearby panel reveals that they'll need to find two batteries. I can't go through the door on the left because it needs one battery to open, but the door on the right is already ajar. My path is clear. After going down a hallway, Six hoists Mono into the next room. And just like that, she's cut off from me. I can't bring her with me and must face the future horror alone. I was very surprised. The earlier demo contained puzzles and a chase sequence where Mono and Six needed to work together in order to ultimately get away from this freaky Hunter, which seemed to imply that Little Nightmares II would solely focus on brand-new "co-op" puzzles, ones where you had to figure out what both you and your NPC partner had to do in order to solve them. But in this recent demo, I was largely solo. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will offer an exclusive Zombie mode to PS4 and PS5 players for one year. Called Zombies Onslaught, the new two-player co-op features waves of increasingly difficult zombie hordes spawning and attacking. The goal is to kill the undead and survive. According to PlayStation's blog, the Zombie Onslaught mode will deploy you and another player to locations from various multiplayer maps. Players will have the same custom loadouts as they do in traditional Zombies and Multiplayer modes. When arriving on the map, the players' range of movements will be restricted to a smaller area by a Dark Aether orb. Zombies will then start spawning and attacking, and each subsequent wave of the undead will be harder to kill. After defeating enough zombies, the Orb will shift locations. If you're inside the Orb, you will be protected from Dark Aether damage. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • On this week's episode of GameSpot After Dark, Jake, Lucy, and Kallie are joined by MinnMax co-host Suriel Vazquez. As always, the crew talks about what they've been playing (or doing in general), and this week includes some rather timely and spooky picks: early-access ghost-hunting game Phasmophobia and Frictional Games' horror followup Amnesia: Rebirth. Suriel also shares his passion for Hades, which he reviewed for GameSpot. The crew then discusses the news from the week--in this case, New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's debut Twitch stream designed to get out the vote. They talk about what made it such a compelling stream and their appreciation for Ocasio-Cortez's genuine approach to political outreach. In far more controversial news, we also got a first look at Tom Holland as Nathan Drake. Does the After Dark crew care at all? That's for us to know and for you to find out.

    • God of War 3 Remastered and God of War (2018) appear to have received PS5 support-related updates, according to Lance McDonald, a Bloodborne and PT hacker/modder. Exactly what's in the update is unknown, commented McDonald, but both games "will likely benefit from PS5 boost mode." Final Fantasy 7 Remake also received a patch that could potentially be a PS5 support-related update. However, due to patch notes' vague nature, we're not quite sure what's actually included in the update. In a reply to someone who queried if there will be any difference in playing God of War 3 Remastered and God of War on PS4 with the new updates, McDonald stated he doesn't know and recommends players download the new patches and try it for themselves. McDonald added in another tweet that God of War (2018) on PS5 is likely to hit 60 FPS, since the frame rate is already uncapped. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
