    • 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.

    • Hitman III developer IO Interactive surprised fans when it announced last week that the entire trilogy of stealth titles will be compatible with PlayStation VR when it releases in January 2021 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The developer released a four-minute video that gives fans a better look at what to expect when stepping into Agent 47's virtual shoes. This includes a look at the additional freedom players will have when using the contracted killer's weaponry and how going first-person impacts the gameplay. Lead game designer Sidsel Marie Hermansen says playing Hitman in virtual reality feels like an entirely new experience. The immersive nature of VR is aided by the existing level of detail, and the studio making sure that each location feels like a lived-in world with characters that have their own routines. The developer describes the experience as being more "powerful" and that it's easy to get distracted by side conversations that take place. "Every little thing wants to take center stage," senior game designer Eskil Mohl explains. "Before in the third-person game, maybe you got a little distracted from something else but now you can't escape them anymore. They're right in your face. I found myself traversing the levels slower and just taking everything in because it's so dense with detail." Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Frostpunk is one of the best strategy games to come out in years, and it's received some great support in the form of expansions. The third and final expansion, On The Edge, is slated for release on August 20, and if you want to get into the post-apocalyptic strategy game ahead of its launch, then you can snag the Steam version at a great price. Frostpunk is only $10 (was $30) on Fanatical with promo code GAMESPOT. This deal is only valid until August 17 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET. This promo code stacks with the game's current discount, bringing its $12 sale price down to $10. All you have to do to claim this extra deal is add Frostpunk to your cart, apply promo code GAMESPOT, and then checkout. Once your order is complete, you can then redeem your Frostpunk code on Steam and start playing. Frostpunk's season pass and Game of the Year edition are also discounted. The latter includes both the base game and season pass. GameSpot's Frostpunk review scored the game a 9/10 for its great aesthetic that helps reinforce the themes of its frozen-wasteland dystopia. Frostpunk features gut-wrenching decisions, and challenging gameplay that forces you to balance your short-term goals and overall long-term plan. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Epic Games premiered a short less than a minute long saying that it had "defied the App Store Monopoly." The video was showcased in Fortnite's Party Royale mode shortly after Epic Games sued Apple, which followed the company's removal of Fortnite from the iOS App Store. "In retaliation Apple is blocking Fortnite from a billion devices," the screen read during the short. "Join the fight to stop 2020 from becoming '1984.'" Viewers were then encourage to use a #FreeFortnite hashtag on social media. The commercial appears to be a play on Apple's Macintosh commercial that aired in 1984. That commercial introduced the Apple Macintosh personal to the world and claimed that it would help people realize why "1984 won't be like '1984,'" referencing the famous Goerge Orwell novel. Epic Games is clearly mocking Apple for their policies on the App store. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • The 1997 version of Final Fantasy VII, which was first exclusive to the PlayStation before being ported to a myriad of other consoles, is now available on Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC subscribers. Anyone who subscribes to Xbox Game Pass--whether it's the console-specific tier, the PC-specific tier (for Windows 10 PCs), or the all-encompassing Ultimate tier--can add the classic JRPG to their backlog. The game can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store. There are some new features that come with this Xbox Game Pass version, including a 3x speed mode, the ability to turn battle encounters off, and a battle enhancement mode. These extra features, while not exclusive to PC or Xbox One, are added for free. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Dead by Daylight has now introduced cross-play, letting you survive the horror game with friends across PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. This follows Behavior linking up the Steam and Windows 10 communities with cross-play. According to the announcement, this also came alongside cross-friends functionality, letting you keep one unified friends list. The studio had previously mentioned cross-progression on Stadia in September. Cross-play or progression doesn't appear to be in the cards for the mobile version. Behavior Interactive says Dead by Daylight has reached more than 25 million players across all platforms, with about 1 million players daily. With most of those communities now able to play together, the share of players who can all join together is much bigger. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Next-generation consoles are nearly upon us. Both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 are coming before the end of the year--the new Xbox is now confirmed for November--meaning we're no more than three months away from having new consoles in our hands. Despite that, we still don't know exactly when they're coming and, more notably, how much they'll cost. But you don't have to look that far back to see the wait for this information isn't unprecedented. Nintendo Switch launched on March 3, 2017, but it wasn't until January 12--less than two months earlier--that Nintendo shared a price or release date. That's 50 days before launch! It's wild to think that news came so late in the game, but that didn't stop the Switch from selling out when pre-orders went live just hours after the date and price were announced (though there were some available at launch). Likewise, Xbox 360's price wasn't announced until mid-August, just three months before launch. I've seen people continue to express astonishment that such critical details about PS5 or Xbox remain unknown at this late stage. And I get it: Who can forget PS3's "five-hundred and ninety-nine US dollars" at E3 2006, five months before release? We heard about pricing for PS4 and Xbox One back to back during E3 in June 2013, again, five months before they hit store shelves. While this year may not have seen an E3, we have already gotten events from both Sony and Microsoft that effectively served as substitutes for their usual E3 press conferences, and yet these details remain unknown as of mid-August.

    • The Dark Souls-like action-RPG, Mortal Shell, releases digitally for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 18, but if you're looking to snag a physical edition of the dark-fantasy romp, then you're in luck. Publisher Playstack announced physical editions for both consoles and PC are coming on October 2 for $30 each. The physical editions will launch in North America and Europe and are expected to be available through major retailers--however, no listings have gone live as of yet. Mortal Shell's physical release comes with a few bonuses, including a fold-out poster and softcover artbook that features concept and character art. While the PS4 and Xbox One versions will include discs, the PC version's physical release will only have an Epic Games Store code in the box. Mortal Shell is exclusive to Epic's storefront, with a Steam release coming in 2021. Mortal Shell physical edition $30 Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
