    • Players who boot up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone now will be prompted to download an update, and it's added a new splash screen to the game announcing support for Black Lives Matter. The screen, reported on by The Verge, contains a message for the Call of Duty player community. "Our community is hurting," the screen reads. “The systemic inequalities our community experiences are once again center stage. Call of Duty and Infinity Ward stand for equality and inclusion. We stand against the racism and injustice our Black community endures. Until change happens and Black Lives Matter, we will never truly be the community we strive to be." The screen will appear for all players upon booting the game, and The Verge reports that it is also appearing on loading screens and when you switch between different modes. While Call of Duty has long been notorious for having many toxic players, this is one of several efforts being taken or promised right now to address racism among the player base. Season 4 has been delayed following the murder of George Floyd, and Infinity Ward has promised to combat in-game racism with enhanced counter-measures. Infinity Ward is one of several developers and publishers that has addressed current world events and pledged support for Black Lives Matter. GameSpot would like to encourage readers to donate to Black Lives Matter, and to seek out black voices in media. GameSpot is now hosting Play For All--a celebration of all things gaming. Join us as we bring you the summer's hottest news, previews, interviews, features, and videos, as well as raise money for COVID-19 relief efforts and Black Lives Matter with the help of our friends from around the gaming world.

    • Sony Europe--of which Sony Australia is a branch--has today faced charges from the Australian Competition And Consumer Commission (ACCC) for misleading customers about their consumer rights. The Federal Court of Australia has hit Sony with $3.5 million in penalty charges "making false and misleading representations on its website and in dealings with Australian consumers about their Australian Consumer Law (ACL) rights." The court found that Sony Europe had misled four customers after they purchased games described as "faulty" through the PlayStation Network. Sony informed customers that they were not entitled to a refund if the game had been downloaded, or if 14 days has passed since purchase, which is not in line with Australian consumer laws. Proceedings for this case began one year ago, and there's precedent for similar cases in Australia, such as the 2014 case against Valve. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Guerrilla Collective--an online digital games festival--has been delayed. Originally scheduled for June 6-8, the event will now occur June 13-15 in support of Black Lives Matter. In a statement on Twitter, Guerrilla Collective's organizers wrote: "The Guerrilla Collective came together to create a space where all find a voice to support each other, our industry, and our work. It is the cumulative effort of incredibly diverse teams unified in the creation of a digital event to bring hope and positive content to the world. We recognize this is a time for action and for voices speaking out for justice and change to be heard. We stand united for change, for justice, and in support of Black Lives Matter." A livestream for June 7 is being prepared, and it will focus exclusively on showcasing games made by black creators or featuring black protagonists. More details on these plans will be revealed soon.

    • The My.Games digital store is currently offering a 90/10 revenue split to developers who choose to sign up for distribution via their online platform. This split would be in favor of the developers and would apply to all purchases made through the storefront. The industry is no stranger to online storefronts, though some giants like Valve take a 70/30 approach to revenue generated by titles on Steam, as reported by Screen Rant. This split has been criticized in the past, and more recently the Epic Games Store has launched with an 88/12 split. The proportion being offered by My.Games is even more favorable to developers, though it requires them to sign up for and to use special "Developer Account" tools that the platform is pushing, according to a press release from the store. Currently, My.Games applies a revenue split similar to Steam's. If developers want to take advantage of this new offer, they will have to use a specific, tracked link generated by My.Games to advertise their titles on various sites and through social media. Purchases of games as a result of that tracked advertising will be subject to the 90/10 revenue split. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is now available on Switch in many regions around the world, and it has launched with a surprise demo that not only lets players check out a few of the full game's offerings, but also lets you experience multiplayer across multiple screens as long as at least one player owns the full game. The demo, which is called Pocket Edition in Japan and Local Multiplayer Guest Edition in Australia (at the time of writing it's not up on the US Eshop yet), will let you play 4 games from the collection for free. The demo features four-in-a-row (think Connect 4), Dominos, President, and Slot Cars, all of which can be played with one or two players on a single console, with AI joining in if you don't have enough players. There are tutorials available for the four games included, and you can adjust rules, CPU difficulty, and the number of rounds you're playing on each game. More players can join in locally if they also have the demo, and if you connect with someone who owns the full game you can play any of the Worldwide Classics together through it. President and Dominos both support up to four players across two systems. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article

    • SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle For Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated has added a new mode that was not featured in the 2003 original. A trailer has been released for a two-player multiplayer mode, which will let players team up and battle against hordes of enemies. The horde mode, which lets you play online or locally, will feature 26 different islands to battle across. While we don't anticipate a challenge on par with the horde modes from the Gears of War series, it could be a fun addition. For SpongeBob fans, one of the highlights of this mode will surely be playing as 7 different characters from the series--including Gary the snail. Each character will have their own unique attacks.

    • NHL 20 players have been concerned about an influx of racist names in the in-game community, with complaints over the past month regarding EA's lack of reporting measures leaving plenty stumped. Hockey has historically had a diversity problem, and this appears to be reflected in NHL 20. The month of May saw a number of posts on the official NHL 20 subreddit outlining concerns from the community around what has been dubbed as "rampant racism in online NHL". One Reddit post called NHL 20's community "one of the most racist" that a player had been a part of, citing examples of team names with overt racist references and racial slurs, especially against black people. Additionally, a statement given by EA in April this year to the Vancouver Province contained a promise by the company to improve its filters used to detect discrimination within NHL 20. The Province also reported that the Vancouver Canucks hockey team had weighed in on the issue of racist language in the game, noting that it would "strongly condemn racist behavior in all forms, whether online in sport or society."

    • The Pokemon Company is continuing to give away free Pokemon in the lead up to Sword and Shield's first DLC expansion, The Isle of Armor. This week, you can claim a free Galarian Corsola with its Hidden Ability, along with a handful of hard-to-find evolutionary items. Galarian Corsola's Hidden Ability is Cursed Body. When the Pokemon is hit by an attack, there's a 30% chance the move will be disabled, preventing the opposing Pokemon from using it again for four turns. In addition to Galarian Corsola, The Pokemon Company is giving away a free bundle of evolution-inducing items. You can see the full list, along with which Pokemon they evolve, below: Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • It seems Microsoft is preparing yet another re-design for the Xbox dashboard. Specifically, the Xbox Store is apparently getting a major overhaul as part of a new firmware update in the future. Codenamed "Project Mercury" according to Thurott, the re-design initially leaked via screenshots posted by @wincommunity on Twitter. The images and video showcase the app running on PC, but noted Microsoft insider Brad Sams says this is an update for Xbox, not Windows. Sams got his hands on the new Xbox Store re-design, and you can check out the video below to see it in action. It looks sleek and easy to use, which is good considering the Xbox dashboard has historically been known to be somewhat unwieldy. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
