  1. Ubisoft's next open-world hacking game, Watch Dogs: Legion, features a lengthy campaign that takes you across the different boroughs of London. In the third game of the franchise focusing on the exploits of the secretive hacker collective DedSec, we see the group expand by bringing in everyday citizens in the fight to save England's capital city from an authoritarian regime--and there's certainly a lot of ground to cover. We can confirm that the main campaign takes about 25 hours to complete from start to finish. This playtime also includes the main story missions and the many recruitment assignments and side-objectives you pick up along the way. It can be a bit tricky to determine how long it would take to complete all the core content for completionists, including all the data pick-ups, side-missions, and other areas of note. What's special about this game is that it has an infinite number of playable characters, who offer you new missions that are randomly generated, so there's no true way to exhaust all the game's content. In GameSpot's full review, editor Alessandro Fillari gave the game an 8/10. In the review, he stated that Ubisoft's next game is a fun and novel installment that builds upon the franchise's core hacking and social engineering gameplay.

  2. Ark: Survival Evolved is getting an update for Xbox Series X, and the difference is huge. The game, which has always been at its best on PC, is doing some serious catching up on the next-gen Xbox. In a new trailer, Ark is showing off Xbox update v802.9, which will release on October 28. If you play the game on Series X following the console's November 10 launch, you'll be able to experience the game in 4K, with vastly improved details, a higher framerate, and numerous other improvements. Check out the trailer for the dinosaur-survival game on Xbox Series X below--it's a major improvement. Ark is available on Xbox Game Pass, so if you're a subscriber, it could be worth a download on your new system. This trailer is specific to the Xbox Series X version, so it's unclear if the game will receive the same treatment on PlayStation 5. 4K resolution is just one of many changes coming. Here's the full list of enhancements coming in the update: Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  3. Microsoft has said again that it has no plans to bring the full version of Halo 5: Guardians to PC. Community manager John Junyszek confirmed this during a fifth anniversary livestream event for Halo 5, where he also reminded fans that Halo 5 is already sort-of on PC through the free Halo 5: Forge client. This lets players create their own maps and modes, while it also supports Custom Games with friends. There is also a Custom Games browser, but full matchmaking support and the campaign, of course, are not included in the package. The full version of Halo 5 isn't scheduled to come to PC, nor is Microsoft planning to add the game to The Master Chief Collection on PC or Xbox, Junyszek said.

  4. While Genshin Impact impressed fans early on with its Breath Of The Wild-like open world, those who have reached endgame are now expressing frustration with its more gacha-heavy features. One of these, the time-limiting “Original Resin” counter, is getting a rework, but some still aren’t happy. Genshin Impact’s resin functions as a timer, as is typical for gacha games, forcing players to either wait to resume play or spend money to continue straight away. With its release on PC and consoles, however, resin feels like more of an imposition on Genshin Impact players who often aren’t used to this kind of function. As it currently works, players can hold a maximum of 120 resin, which can be spent on collecting loot from boss battles, domains, and ley line battles. Once spent, the resin slowly re-accumulates at a rate of one every eight minutes, for a total of 180 per day. Resin stops accumulating once it hits the 120 cap, however, so players who only log in once per day won't be able to use the full 180. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  5. With the RTX 3080 as the introduction to Nvidia's new generation of video cards, we saw what the next wave of high-end cards is capable of. Relatively speaking, the RTX 3080 offers an intriguing value proposition for enthusiast-level performance at $700 USD MSRP (if you can even find one), outclassing any video card that came before it. But not everyone needs or wants to go for the high-end and, as is tradition, Nvidia likes to roll out lower-spec SKUs over time--so now, we have the RTX 3070, which is a truly impressive card in its own right. Nvidia has touted the RTX 3070 as performing around the same as the RTX 2080 Ti, which was last generation's top-tier consumer-level video card. And that's largely true based on our results. The RTX 3070 carries a $500 MSRP, which is less than half of what a 2080 Ti goes for, so to get that type of performance at a much more approachable price makes high-end PC gaming less of a pipe dream. Especially when factoring in the growing popularity of RTX ray tracing capabilities and the increasing usage of DLSS as a great alternative to antialiasing, the RTX 3070 makes a strong case for those who are still holding out with GTX 10-series (or older) cards. For the purposes of this review, Nvidia provided the Founder's Edition of the RTX 3070--keep in mind that board partners' performance and pricing can vary. We followed a similar structure to our RTX 3080 review to keep a consistent comparison between the other Nvidia cards included in our tests, but focused our analysis on how the 3070 fares against the 2080 Ti, given Nvidia's claims of how the 3070 stacks against it.

  6. Dave Kosak, the principle narrative designer for Blizzard's Hearthstone, has left the developer. Kosak worked at Blizzard for 12 years, but has now said his goodbyes. "After 12 remarkable years and countless adventures, I am moving on from Blizzard Entertainment," Kosak said in a short Twitter thread. "I will very much miss all of my Blizzard colleagues." He went on to reminiscence about his time at the company, and promise fans that further updates were coming to Hearthstone. The game recently received a new expansion, Madness at the Darkmoon Faire.

  7. No Man's Sky has released a new update for Halloween, and it adds numerous new cosmetic items to the game to celebrate the season. It'll also enhance the wrecks from the Desolation update with new materials, and bring a few other changes to the space-faring game on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The new update notes explain that you can now find Tainted Metal and Quicksilver on abandoned freighters, so it's worth visiting them and dealing with the alien menaces within to get your hands on some. Watch out, though--the aliens have been mutating, and are stronger than ever. Tainted Metal can be traded to a scrap dealer for new base decorations and customization options, the wildest of which is the "Horrific Flesh-Helmet". That's the in-game name for the item you see below. It's...well, it's a horrific flesh-helmet. The mouth moves. It's a lot. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  8. Stories Untold, an anthology of four horror-tinged narrative games, has surprise-launched on PS4 and Xbox One. The title, which released on PC back in 2017 before coming to Switch earlier this year, is now available for new audiences to check out. The four smaller games included are: The House Abandon The Lab Conduct The Station Process The Last Session As a remake of an earlier title, The House Abandon is the most well-known game in the collection--a metatextual text adventure with a cool, dark twist.

  9. Like Call of Duty: Warzone, Activision's Call of Duty Mobile is getting in the spooky spirit with its own Halloween events. The game's Halloween events are available right now, and they seem pretty great. First off, a new game mode called "Pumpkin Confirmed" is available. This is the standard Kill Confirmed mode, but the twist is that players must collect jack-o-lanterns instead of dog tags. An eerie new map variant, Halloween Standoff, has also been added to the mix for the event. Finally, zombies are coming to the battle royale mode on October 30 to mix up the gameplay in a scary way. You can check out a teaser for the Halloween events below. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  10. Mobile developer King has announced Crash Bandicoot: On The Run!, a new mobile runner starring the freshly-revitalized Crash Bandicoot. Hot off the heels of Crash Bandicoot 4, this new title will look a lot like a classic Crash title, but Crash will run automatically and you'll control him with swipes. Crash will have to deal with various enemies who try to impede him, including Neo Cortex, Nina, and Fake Crash (who looks a lot less funky than he did in Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped). There will be levels based on the Crash Bandicoot platformer series, and it seems like this won't be an infinite runner, so you can reach the end of levels. The game will have crafting and base-building elements, so you can work towards goals outside of the levels. What exactly these systems will look like is unclear, however. There are also unlockable challenge runs that can be found by heading down hidden paths. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  11. Microsoft's new gaming strategy isn't focused on Xbox hardware alone. Microsoft is releasing its games on PC, too, and Xbox boss Phil Spencer has now reiterated Microsoft's stance on bringing its first-party games to PC and explained why the company isn't focused on one platform in particular. Spencer told GameReactor, "If we are shipping a first-party game, it's coming to PC. If we are shipping a first-party game on PC it's coming to Steam and our own store." This is a big change for Microsoft, as the company did not previously release all of its games across console and PC. Microsoft was criticized in the past for its stance on PC gaming, and Spencer acknowledged that this criticism was valid. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  12. 2K Sports has released a new gameplay trailer for NBA 2K21 that showcases the professional basketball game's next-gen edition, and, generally speaking, it looks very, very good. In the video, executive producer Erick Boenisch and gameplay director Mike Wang show off NBA 2K21's PS5 edition and provide commentary for a game between the Golden State Warriors and the New Orleans Pelicans. The first thing you'll notice in the video is how NBA 2K21 loads into a game almost instantly--this is made possible by the SSDs in the new consoles. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  13. Xbox is doing great heading into the launch of the Xbox Series X and S consoles in November. Microsoft announced its earnings for the July-September period, and Xbox was a bright spot. Gaming revenue rose year-over-year by $550 million, or 22 percent, due in part to increased spending on games and services. The content and services department of Xbox specifically saw its revenue rise by 30 percent, which works out to a whopping $649 million increase. This growth was driven in part by third-party games, Microsoft said, though it did not mention any by name. As a platform-holder, Microsoft gets a 30% cut of every game sold on Xbox, and with games overall flourishing right now during COVID-19, Microsoft is making big profits. The growth was also fueled by an increase in Xbox Game Pass subscriptions, along with first-party game sales. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  14. The Division 2 servers are back online on PC, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and Xbox One following a three-hour maintenance period. In that downtime, developer Massive Entertainment deployed a new update that wraps up the Last Resort event. The full patch notes are outlined below. The Last Resort was a limited-time event that included 29 pieces of unlockable apparel like shirts and pants for The Division 2 players. It was available to all players who own the Warlords of New York expansion and have completed the New York campaign. The update concludes the Last Resort event and makes all those cosmetics purchasable with premium credits. The update also addresses some gameplay issues. This includes ironing out Delta-01 errors when loading certain characters and fixing suicide drones that wouldn't target player skills. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  15. Sony might have caught everyone off-guard when the company decided to open preorders for the PlayStation 5 not long after revealing its November 12 release date, but that hasn't stopped demand from eclipsing that of the PlayStation 4 during its preorder period. Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, has stated in an interview with Reuters that demand for that PlayStation 5 has outstripped the company's supply capability at launch, but that the number of orders already placed far exceeds that of the first few months of the PlayStation 4. In just 12 hours, Sony sold more PS5 consoles than in the first 12 weeks of PS4 preorder sales in the United States. Finding a preorder for a PS5 is difficult now, and Ryan says that Sony is trying its best to ensure additional stock for the upcoming holiday season. But Ryan warns that it will likely remain challenging to find a PS5 if you don't already have one ordered. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
