Last week, content creator, NerosCinema, revealed 11 key new features which will be added to Call of Duty: Warzone 2, which were further verified by the accredited industry insider, Tom Henderson. Some of these include an interrogation feature, pro perks, a new bag system, and more. These changes are set to turn Call of Duty: Warzone into a new experience.
Keeping up with Call of Duty, the release date for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is officially confirmed. Set to release in October 2022, the game will be the revival that the franchise needs after Call of Duty: Vanguard. The official Call of Duty channel on YouTube recently uploaded an artwork reveal for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
In other news, V Rising, the new survival top-down MMORPG from Stunlock Studios, has exceeded an overwhelming 500,000 players in just over three days since its release. Compiling amazing world-building and combat features with a dash of vampires makes the compelling experience worth playing.
Sony Group recently announced that PlayStation Network sales amount to over $14 billion from over a million accounts; its magic? Take advantage of digital mediums. Kenichiro Yoshida, CEO of Sony Group, reveals that this is PlayStation Network’s reason for its success. With this, Sony Group plans to collaborate with other third-party groups, such as Netflix, Spotify, and many more, to continue this winning streak.
Keeping on the topic of PlayStation, an unreleased Silent Hill Origins build for the PlayStation 2 was recently spotted. According to the content creator, PtoPOnline, who posted it online, it’s a rather late build, from February 5th, 2008. From speculation, we can come to the conclusion that these might have been pre-testing builds to try out new concepts and test out the limitations of the game’s mechanics and software.
Furthermore, a new Iron Man experience produced by Aaron Wayne, in which players play as Iron Man in a short demo where one can, quite literally, break the sound barrier was showcased using Unreal Engine 5 by stringing it along with some assets.
In further Marvel news, it has been revealed that Marvel reached out to Xbox to make new games. Although Marvel reached out to Microsoft first, the deal ultimately went to Sony, and we went to see the inordinate success of Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
Staying on the topic of Xbox, the Xbox Game Pass has been a staple of great membership perks, with AAA titles available on the first day, and so much more. However, the former Xbox Vice President of Game Publishing, Ed Fries, gives players a worrying sentiment. He fears that, like Spotify, the Xbox Game Pass will cut up total earnings as players just won’t buy individual games anymore.
Next up is an extremely surprising development; the critically acclaimed title, Elden Ring, ranks #20 in the most played games across the United States. One reason for this might be that Elden Ring was released in February, so the playtime was merely a month. However, with the high sales that the game has, it makes little sense. Regardless, Elden Ring remains an experience worth playing.
In other news, Skullgirls 2nd Encore is releasing on Xbox consoles with a new expansion. Originally released on PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch, the game will now move over to Xbox consoles with a Season Pass and an additional update for the Nintendo Switch.
In other news, a lost archive was found, u/a707northbayer on r/n64, recently found a working copy of SimCopter64 on Craigslist. The player says that they swapped a few developer cartridges with somebody “who used to be in the industry”, and with that, found a playable development cartridge of Simcopter64 thought to have been lost to time.
Moreover, Bloober Team, the developer behind Blair Witch, Observer, and the extremely terrifying, Layers Of Fear 2, rejected the creation of a Saw game to create Blair Witch. The company’s reasoning was that the Blair Witch had a higher chance to build a more fulfilling universe.
Lastly, a data miner recently leaked the entire script for Cyberpunk 2077‘s upcoming expansion over a quarrel with a CD Projekt RED moderator. The leak, initially uploaded on r/ff06b5, was later removed. The leaked script reveals new missions, world events, and dialogues.
