    • Team17, the publisher behind Overcooked and Moving Out, has announced its latest game--and it sounds really interesting and unique. Developed by Infinigon Games, Epic Chef is a cooking-themed single-player life-simulator game coming to PC. "Players will find themselves in the city of Ambrosia and as Zest, the mysterious new stranger in town, they must take on master chefs in histrionic culinary combat in a bid to become the best chef in town," reads a line from Team17's press release. Epic Chef has a narrative element, along with life-sim activities such as farming and foraging. You go fishing, enjoy a day at the spa, or just zen out in the "laid back" city of Ambrosia.

    • If you're looking for a new role-playing game for Nintendo Switch, Best Buy has a trio of Square Enix titles on sale for $15 off today. Dragon Quest Builders 2, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition, and Octopath Traveler are $45 until 12 AM PT / 3 AM ET. While $15 isn't a huge discount, all three of the games are currently full price at other major retailers, and Dragon Quest XI is sold out at Amazon right now. We have seen Octopath Traveler for as low as $30 and Dragon Quest XI for under $40 at one point, but there's no telling when they will dip below $45 again. Meanwhile, Dragon Quest Builders 2 has received regular discounts on PS4 and PC, but we don't often see it on sale for Switch. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Signal Studios, the developer behind the Toy Soldiers series, has confirmed a new game is in development: Toy Soldiers 2: Finest Hour. It's coming to Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and first footage of the game is available now on the game's website. It shows toys fighting against one another, as was the case with the original game. According to the game's site, it will recreate several moments from World War II. "Survive Dunkirk, siege the beaches of Normandy, battle the Imperial Navy in the Pacific, and beware the dreaded arsenal of secret Nazi weapons," the site reads. It's not clear when Toy Soldiers 2 will release, but like the original you'll be able to both deploy and direct units while also taking direct control of forces to fight the enemy directly.

    • The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will usher in the next generation of gaming when they release later this year. Both systems are stacked with a multitude of improved features and capabilities, but there is one in particular that Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon believes that people are underestimating. During a recent livestream, Boon said the first thing people tend to ask about with new consoles is how much better the graphics will look. But he believes it's the dramatically improved loading times that might end up being the bigger differentiator between the current generation and next-gen. "It's funny when these new consoles come out and everybody goes, 'OK, what do the graphics look like?' I think people are underestimating the impact that the almost zero loading time is going to have," he said, as reported by Twinfinite. "That's suddenly going to open doors that weren't considered possible before and I think we haven't even scratched the surface of what will eventually be done with those systems."

    • Players of The Division 2 might want to be careful if they don't want spoilers. Ubisoft has recently acknowledged a major Division 2 story leak thanks to some audio files left over on the Public Test Server (PTS) which hint at the reappearance of old The Division characters and more. Massive Entertainment, the studio working on The Division 2, appears to have kept audio files on the PTS which give away the story for the next three seasons of Manhunt targets in the game. For the uninitiated, Manhunts are missions available to those who own the Warlords of New York expansion pack. Essentially, your job is to hunt down major antagonist Aaron Keener, and eliminate his lieutenants along the way. Each season, Manhunts for new agents (called rogue agents) are introduced, allowing players who have reached Level 40 to continue gallivanting through the city streets in search of bounty targets to take down in exchange for skill mods.

    • A new trailer for Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection has been released, and it reveals that the new compilation will contain a game never released before. One of the seven games included in the upcoming Switch, PS4, and PC collection is Samurai Shodown V Perfect--an updated version of the final Neo Geo entry with new content.

    • Those who have been waiting for an update on Wasteland 3 will be glad to know that InXile Entertainment has released a new Dev Diary with details on the game's world, characters, and more. This is the second dev diary for Wasteland 3 after the first dropped on publisher Deep Silver's official YouTube channel last week. While that particular video focused on character creation and combat in the tactical RPG, yesterday's dev diary release has a bigger focus on the narrative. InXile's studio head, Brian Fargo, spoke briefly about Wasteland 3's relationship with the previous titles in the series, describing the protagonists' start in this third installment as involving working with "the new patriarch of Colorado who's an authoritarian".

    • Xbox boss Phil Spencer has acknowledged that it's been challenging to demonstrate the true leap that the Xbox Series X will provide over the Xbox One. In Reggie's new podcast, Spencer said one of the most defining characteristics of next-gen games is how they "feel" with faster and more stable frame rates. It's not possible to demonstrate this with videos, Spencer said. And with physical events canceled or postponed due to COVID-19, Microsoft is facing a new dilemma in trying to communicate the appeal of faster frame rates. This is a new challenge, Spencer said, because for previous console transitions throughout history, the power of new systems was immediately apparent with better graphics. "One of the things I've talked about publicly ... but it's hard to come across, is the way it feels to play games on a box where frame rates are higher, frame rates are more stable," Spencer said. "The fluidity of it, showing that in video form, is just impossible. How do you show how something feels?" Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and the free-to-play battle royale spin-off Call of Duty: Warzone, will be offering double XP over this coming weekend. This will also signify the end of Season 3, which will wrap up at the same time this bonus ends. The Double XP weekend, announced in the latest Call of Duty briefing, will run from Friday, May 29 at 10AM PT until June 1 at 10 AM PT. You'll also be earning Double Weapon XP and Double Battle Pass tier progression over this weekend. This will give you a bit of a boost if you need to hit tier 100 in the Season 3 Battle Pass, which will unlock Alex's Indomitable skin. It's also a good reason to jump back in if you've been away from Modern Warfare for a while and check out the newly added maps. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article

Deadline reports that Cruise and Liman came up with their idea for a movie in space together, and Liman wrote the first draft of the script.
