Mistress of Blade Coming to Black Desert on Xbox One
Other / 10. 1. 2020

A small and hidden village of the Oeki Clan that resides alongside the banks of the Turina river gives birth to the newest class in Black Desert, Kunoichi. Trained at a very young age to master the use of a shortsword, kunais, and the hidden arts of Ninjutsu, Kunoichi has the ability to swiftly and silently dispose of her enemies. Kunoichi’s skill set includes: Flash Slash (vanishes and reappears to inflict multiple hits on target); Kuno Stab (deadly stabs using her Kunai); Ninjutsu: Shadow Explosion (explosive frontal damage knocking back targets); Tragic Blade (counterattack). Our veteran adventurers can now also utilize the scarecrow training dummy. This new feature allows for adventurers to train their classes through the use of training dummies within major towns to grow stronger within the world of Black Desert. With new content available for both beginner and veteran adventurers, start your next Black Desert journey with the Mistress of Blades, Kunoichi, now available on Xbox One.

Why Batman’s New Game Deserves a Better Tease Than This
Other / 10. 1. 2020

Nearly five years since the launch of the last full-fledged Batman: Arkham game, WB Games finally seems poised to reveal a continuation of Batman’s Arkham legacy. But rather than let the Dark Knight step into the spotlight with the fanfare he deserves, WB’s promotional teases feel as if they’re testing the patience of fans rather than delivering what they’ve long hoped for — and possibly setting the developers up for unfair judgment, too. As it stands right now, a new Batman game hasn’t officially been announced, but ever since Rocksteady’s trilogy came to a close in 2015 with Batman: Arkham Knight, fans have waited for the next in the series. Even as Rocksteady moved on to a still-unannounced new project (after completing Batman: Arkham VR), the world has waited for a return to Gotham. The History of The Mystery Batman Game And not without reason — since 2016, reports have suggested that Arkham Origins developer WB Games Montreal was focusing on a new Batman game. And fervor for the still-unannounced game rose again in 2018 when a WB Montreal developer tweeted an image that seemed to include a possible Batman: Court of Owls logo in it. But at the same…

CD Projekt Red Confirms Cyberpunk 2077 for Current Gen Consoles, But Next-Gen Is Likely
Other / 10. 1. 2020

Cyberpunk 2077 will be out in just a few months for current-gen consoles. But that doesn’t mean CD Projekt Red has completely written off next-gen hardware. In an alleged DM to a fan, the developer confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t limited to current-gen hardware, although it is the primary focus. Reddit user Astro4545 posted a screenshot of a private message correspondence they had with CD Projekt Red over Twitter. In it, they asked the developer that since new consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are expected sometime this year whether Cyberpunk 2077 might be a cross-gen game. The studio responded, “Possibly, however current generation is our main focus [at the moment].” [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2018/08/27/cyberpunk-2077-gameplay-demo”] IGN reached out to CD Projekt Red but was told by the developers that they “do not have any comments regarding the topic.” It should be noted that speculation regarding Cyberpunk 2077 being a cross-gen game has been floating around since last year. And it’s not like Cyberpunk 2077 won’t support next-gen features. Nvidia announced that the company partnered with CD Projekt Red to bring ray tracing technology into the PC version of Cyberpunk 2077. And ray tracing is supposedly a big feature for…

Monster Hunter World PC players reporting deleted saves following Iceborne’s arrival
Other / 10. 1. 2020

Monster Hunter World’s Iceborne expansion finally – finally – launched on PC yesterday, four months after its console debut. And while its highly anticipated arrival is certainly reason to celebrate, not all PC players are in a jubilant mood, with many reporting a range of issues with the newly released PC version – the most worrying being that existing game saves are, in some cases, no longer recognised after Iceborne’s installation. Monster Hunter is, it’s fair to say, a game that can swallow up an enormous chunk of play time, thanks to its grind-focussed design – and after almost two years of free content updates for World, individual saves can easily reach into the hundreds of hours. Understandably then, players are oscillating between horror and devastation upon discovering that – as repeatedly reported across Steam, Reddit, and other corners of the internet – their saves are gone following an Iceborne install, with the game prompting them to create a fresh file on start-up. As noted by VG247, in the absence of official word from Capcom, players have speculated that missing saves could be the result of mod compatibility issues, or perhaps a failure to update Monster Hunter World following a…

Xbox Won’t Have Series X Exclusives for at Least a Year
Other / 10. 1. 2020

2020 is when the next-generation of consoles is set to be released, but Microsoft is upending the playbook this year by announcing the upcoming Xbox Series X won’t launch with exclusive games. Instead, any new title playable on the Series X will also be playable on older Xbox One consoles. “As our content comes out over the next year, two years, all of our games, sort of like PC, will play up and down that family of devices,” said Xbox Game Studios boss Matt Booty in a recent interview with MCV. “We want to make sure that if someone invests in Xbox between now and [Series X] that they feel that they made a good investment and that we’re committed to them with content.” [widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=xbox-project-scarlett-e3-trailer-screenshots&captions=true”] What this means is that Xbox will still have console exclusives on Xbox and PC, but they won’t be limited to just the Series X. Upcoming games for the next-gen Microsoft console will also be playable on the Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X. This is somewhat of a departure for next-gen hardware. While there are cross-gen games that are usually released within the first two years of a console…
