Battlefront II won’t have a season pass

Season passes have unfortunately become a mainstay in modern gaming. They often even cost the same as the base game, but the content they provide you is never really worth that investment. It usually ends up being a few map packs or some singleplayer content that doesn’t add a lot to the already established experienced. Furthermore, you are taking a huge risk by trusting developers to not sc...

Sony is shutting down servers for a few games, namely Kill Strain

Looks like Sony’s going to shut down some old servers soon, due to ‘inactivity’. It’s nothing new to learn an old server is shutting down, but when one of the games on the list only released last year, you have to wonder just how dead the game really is. The one I’m speaking of is Kill Strain, it was only released last year and I’m surprised to see that the serv...

It looks like fans are getting what they asked for in Battlefront 2 with multiplayer battles spanning all Star Wars eras and a single player campaign.

The NES Classic Edition officially discontinued

Update: Be quick if you’re interested! RARU secured a limited number of units, and this is very likely your last chance to secure one.

Rime Creative Director was brought to tears reading NeoGAF

Every video game message board holds its own share of contempt. Frustrations, opinions and at times anger can be put forward for the internet to see. Yet a for the majority of these instances, those who are on the receiving end are ignored. During a recent interview with Edge, Raul Rubio, the Creative Director of the upcoming Rime, spoke about how one of the most popular message boards, brought hi...

G2A responds to sale of scammed keys

Last week I wrote about how co-founder of Vlambeer, Rami Ismail, said that he would rather have people pirate his game than buy it on G2A, considering the amount of time he spends trying to filter out key scammers. G2A replied to that since then, sending me a mail. Here is the mail, which was sent because “there are some misunderstandings we’d like to clarify”: “First thing...

Console demo for Prey hits one week before release

The Prey reboot/remake will receive a one-hour long demo just before the game releases. Bethesda have announced that the demo will be available from 27 April on PS4 and Xbox One, which is one week away from launch. There’s no mention of a PC demo, which is a little odd as I thought the PC version would get a demo before anything else. Whether or not this is a timed trial or a demo that ends ...

Yakuza Kiwami is taking you back to where the story began in August

Yakuza Kiwami is coming to PlayStation 4 on August 29 in both physical and digital form. Yakuza Kiwami is a remake of the very first Yakuza game, originally released in 2005. This is not a remaster but a complete...

Microsoft to add a refund system for digital purchases

One of the biggest problems when buying a new game is that you’re running the risk of it being absolute rubbish. When buying physical copies, you have some recourse in selling or trading it in at your local game store, and making it some other unsuspecting fools’ problem. But When you buy a game digitally however, it’s not that simple, or at least it wasn’t. Steam has been ...

Video: Diablo 3’s Necromancer is now playable in closed beta

One of the most popular characters from Diablo 2 was the Necromancer, so fans were more than a little excited to hear the dark wizard will be returning to Diablo 3 this year. The announcement of the Necromancer joining the other Nephilim in Diablo 3 happened at BlizzCon last year so it has been a long wait but a lucky few can start playing as the new character today. Playing as the Necromancer sta...

Remedy’s next game will also release on PS4

Remedy have been one of Microsoft’s premier developers responsible for the wonderful Alan Wake as well as the ambitious Quantum Break which was arguably one of Microsoft’s biggest new IPs. They are also responsible for the much loved Max Payne franchise and on most accounts, they’ve been on a hot streak for a while now. Their games have been exclusive to Microsoft’s platfor...

The first image of the Scorpio dev kit has surfaced

To date we’ve only received official specs for what Scorpio promises to be. Other than that we’ve also seen a screenshot of an older Xbox One game (Forza Motorsport 6) running on Scorpio with some enhancements, and that’s it. Gamasutra uploaded a very interesting Q & A with Phil Spencer, you really should go read it, and along with that we’ve also got our first image of...
