Destiny 2: Tour of the New Social Space “The Farm”

Bungie’s Ryan Ebenger takes IGN on a tour of the new social space in Destiny 2 called The Farm. In this video we get a cool spoiler free walk through of some of the areas we’ll find in the new Destiny social space. Some of our good old merchants will be returning from Destiny 1 as well as some new features. Most important is the new soccer field with goals and score keeping, totally unnecessary but amazing none the less.

Don’t forget that the Beta begins on 07/18/17 on PS4 and 7/19/17 on Xbox One for pre-ordering players. Non-pre-ordering console players will have access to the Destiny 2 Beta beginning 7/21/17. The Destiny 2 Beta for PC begins in late August.

PLAYERUNKNOWN Teases New Desert Map Under Development

Earlier today PLAYERUNKNOWN (YES, its all caps f*ckers) posted on twitter a couple of screenshots teasing their new desert map. No release date or mention of cost was given. The screenshots look pretty damn good and have the community going crazy with speculation over the potential that bicycles might be in the new map or future patch. Battlegrounds has been a run away success as one of the most played games of 2017 and with over 4 million copies sold in 3 months since release.

I barely have a grasp on the current map but more content is a good thing. Also the support this game has gotten from such a small studio is really impressive and should make some triple A developers embarrassed.

Here’s the tweet teasing the new map below.

First Vampyr Gameplay Footage Looks Bloody Good

Vampyr-screenshot-original

Dontnod entertainment’s new Action RPG, Vampyr, has finally showed off some gameplay footage. While being very early still, it is looking dark and bloody, just the way a proper vampire game should be. Set in the early 1900’s in London, the backdrop of the city being under the ravages of the Spanish Flu is the perfect setting for this new bloodsucking adventure. Take a look at the trailer below and get a feel for this dark adventure

Vampyr is coming this November 2017 for XBox One, Playstation 4 and PC. Pre-orders are happening now.

The Secret World Relaunching As Free To Play Game

thesecretworld_logo

Several years ago, Funcom, the creators of Anarchy Online and Dark Age of Conan, created one of the most innovative Massively Multi-player Role Playing Games in The Secret World. That game had some problems, but also had one of the most unique gameplay loops, with genuinely interesting detective missions as well as your regular MMO fare, all set in an extremely unique backdrop of secret societies and things that go bump in the night.

Now they have decided that there is a lot to love in that game, but that maybe they did a few things wrong and maybe got a little too “out there” with some of the gameplay aspects, such as no levels or classes. Well now they have gone back to the drawing board and have fixed a lot of that games issues, and along the way decided to make it free to play in Secret World Legends.

Now anyone can go to their website, download Secret World Legends and enjoy, what is in my opinion, one of the best, most often overlooked MMO’s that has now been made even better.

You can check out the launch trailer for Secret World Legends below

10 Minutes of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Gameplay – #E32017

Check out 10 minutes from Koji Igarashi’s CastleVania inspired game Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. I didn’t have a chance to play Bloodstained at E3 but I’m super excited as I’m a huge CastleVania fan. Its been too long since a good side scrolling CastleVania has been released. The only bad news is that this game is still a long ways out and isn’t expected to be released until some time in 2018.
