Windows 11 Will Launch For Free To Compatible PCs Starting October 5

As time has gone on, Microsoft has shifted its gaming focus from just Xbox home consoles to more subscription-based services with its crown jewel being Xbox Game Pass. With that shift, it also means that they've largely been more open with alternative platforms, especially with bringing their first party titles to PC. Now, a new development has come for the PC side of things with Windows 11.

Windows 11 was announced earlier this year. While gaming isn't the sole focus, obviously, it was boasted as the 'best ever' Windows OS for gaming. The OS will include things similar aspects of the current Xbox systems (the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S), such as DirectX12 Ultimate, DirectStorage and Auto HDR for improved gaming experiences. It will, of course, also have full access to Xbox Game Pass PC via the Microsoft Store, which is said to also get a redesign. You can read more comprehensive details, such as the non-gaming related upgrades, via the official blog through here.

Windows 11 will launch as a free upgrade to all compatible PCs starting on October 5th.

Rise Of The Tomb Raider Xbox Exclusivity Said To Be Have Been Worth $100 Million

For now, it seems Square is going to let Lara Croft have a bit of a rest after a reboot trilogy with some hints that something will happen in the future to unify the past and present of the series. Overall, the reboot titles (Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider) were well-received even if older fans had a lot of issues with them. However, you may remember that the second game in that trilogy took an odd detour as it was exclusive for roughly one year to Xbox platforms despite the first game being multiplatform and the series as a whole being strongly associated with the PlayStation brand. It also seems we could now know how much that cost.

According to a resume posted on LinkIn, former Director of Live Product Management at Eidos-Montréal and Business Development Director at Square Enix Fabien Rossini, posted that they had helped negotiate the deal that was worth $100 million. As you can see here, that text has since been edited out of their profile, but thanks to Twitter user Timur222, we can see where it was said below.

This isn't an official statement, obviously, and most likely there will never be one since terms of these types of deals are generally kept secret in the industry unless there is a lawsuit involved, and Rossini editing out the line could be an indication that maybe what was said was an embellishment. However, if the deal in question included things like marketing and any development costs, it probably isn't unbelievable.

Rise of the Tomb Raider launched originally in 2015 for Xbox One and Xbox 360, then PC a few months later, and the PS4 almost a year later. It is also available as part of the Definitive Survivor Collection that collects all three reboot titles.

Hitman 3 – Season of Gluttony Roadmap Trailer Details Upcoming Content

Hitman 3 recently wrapped up its fourth season of post-launch content, Season of Lust, and Season of Gluttony has now kicked off, adding new cosmetics and items, Elusive Targets, and more. IO Interactive has released a roadmap trailer detailing the new stuff coming to Hitman 3 in its fifth season.

New items include a new suit, a new shotgun, a new bubble gum pack. Two Elusive Targets, known as The Procurers, will be available in Dartmoor from September 3 to September 23. Another Elusive Target will be The Food Critic in Bangkok from September 7 to September 27. This one will also unlock the casual suit with gloves outfit.

Speaking of Bangkok, that's the new free location in rotation for this season, and will be live from September 9 to September 19. Finally, there will also be new featured contracts. Check out the trailer below more details.

Hitman 3 is available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia, and as a cloud-exclusive release on Nintendo Switch.

Ghostrunner Update Adds Wave Mode, Assist Mode, and New Cosmetics

Ghostrunner's seen some pretty solid post-launch support, getting new content even earlier this year. Now, it's received another update that adds plenty of interesting stuff.

The big new addition is the Wave Mode, which is a rogue-lite experience that will see you playing against 20 waves of enemies, each harder than the last, with procedural generation of enemies and environments. If you do it, you get an exclusive new sword.

There's also a new Assist Mode, which will give players the option to toggle on some boosts, such as having an extra life, shorter ability cooldowns, and slower enemies. Finally, there's also the Neon Pack DLC, which adds new cosmetic items to the game, including katanas and gloves.

Ghostrunner is available on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It will be launching for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on September 28.

Earlier this year, the Ghostrunner IP was acquired by the first game's co-publisher (now full publisher) 505 Games. A sequel is currently in development.

Diablo 2: Resurrected Trailer Showcases the Sorceress

Following its showcase of the Barbarian class, Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo 2: Resurrected has received a new trailer focusing on the Sorceress. As one commands the elements, the Sorceress is your go-to choice for causing wide-spread magical damage. Check out her gameplay below.

The Sorceress's skills are divided into three categories – Ice, Lightning and Fire. She can cast Frozen Armor for a defense bonus and to freeze any attackers or cast spells like Frozen Orb, Fire Ball and Lightning to decimate foes. Of course, if you want to get around the map quickly, then Teleport also comes in mighty handy. While she can't tank heaps of damage, the Sorceress can perform well in medium to long range engagements.

Diablo 2: Resurrected is out on September 23rd for Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. For more details, check out our feature here. Stay tuned for trailers detailing the other classes in the coming days.

Dead Space Remake Features New Dismemberment System, Revamped Zero-G Sections

Motive Studios' Dead Space remake received some new details and comparison shots in a recent Twitch stream. Despite being from an early pre-production build, the improvements are very noticeable. It's not all about better visuals though – the developer also confirmed some enhancements to the gameplay, like the dismemberment system.

As noted by Nibel on Twitter, the remake uses a completely new body damage system. Flesh can now be removed from enemies, which indicates their overall vitality, and certain weapons will react differently. While some are better at chunking away the flesh, others are more suited to dismembering body parts. Enemies also have new damage models with each part reacting accordingly.

The Zero-G Therapy Room received an early look as well but the overall system is being overhauled. Players will have the 360 degrees freedom of movement and thrusters from Dead Space 2. New environments and paths with new challenges are also being promised. And if all that wasn't enough, Gunner Wright is returning to voice Isaac Clarke.

Dead Space is in development for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. It's rumored to be targeting a release in Fall 2022.

Dead Space Remake – Early Pre-Production Shots Showcase Hefty Visual Improvements

Motive Studios has showcased new images and additional details for its upcoming Dead Space remake via its recent Twitch stream, with the goal of receiving early feedback from the community. Many of these images were captured by Nibel on Twitter and showcase how the remake is staying true to the environmental layouts of the original but adding more details. Check it out below.

All of these images are from an early pre-production development build but the visuals are already looking like a big step up. A comparison between a hallway from the original game and in the remake reveals more objects, enhanced lighting and shadows, and improved textures. Even protagonist Isaac Clarke is looking more vibrant.

The Dead Space remake is currently in development for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC with a rumored Fall 2022 release. It will leverage current-gen consoles to deliver 3D audio and no loading screens. Also, despite the direction that Dead Space 3 went in, there won't be any microtransactions. Stay tuned for more details from the livestream shortly.

Far Cry 6 – Xbox Series X Gameplay Showcases Resolver Weapons, Parachuting and Fangs for Hire

Ubisoft has debuted some new gameplay footage for Far Cry 6, offering a look at the Xbox Series X version. It sees Dani Rojas starting out by exploring Yara's El Este region and infiltrating a camp, which eventually devolves into wide-spread chaos and gunfights. Check it out below.

There's quite a bit to unpack, like how Antón Castillo sprays plants in the region with a specific chemical that makes them highly flammable, or parachuting onto a cargo ship to rescue prisoners. The signature wingsuit returns and even the Fangs for Hire, including the perpetually angry Chicaharrón the rooster, are showcased. Co-op is supported for the entire game and while the host player keeps story progress, the guest player will retain their individual progress like resources gathered.

Interestingly, narrative director Navid Khavari said he believes that cross-platform play is possible (though further clarification is needed). Extensive HUD customization is also included, from disabling the mini-map to turning off the health bars. Far Cry 6 is out on October 7th for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, PC and Google Stadia. For more details on the game based on the opening few hours, check out our top 10 reasons to be excited here.

Metal Gear Solid 5's PS3 and Xbox 360 Servers Are Being Shut Down

A recent post on Konami's official website states that Metal Gear Solid 5's online servers for PS3 and Xbox 360 will be shut down early next year. In the post, Konami details the phases in which Metal Gear Online support will be dropped eventually.

Following November 30, DLC for online game modes wouldn't be available to purchase. Then, on March 1, 2022 – the game will not be available to purchase for these platforms on their respective storefronts. Finally, on May 1, 2022 – the game will no longer have any active servers.

Players can still enjoy the game's single-player offerings even after the shutting down of servers. Of course, players on PS4, Xbox One, and PC can still enjoy the game's online offerings for quite some time. Rockstar recently announced that support for GTA Online on PS3 and Xbox 360 would be dropping soon. The future of Metal Gear Solid on the other hand looks bleak, albeit with a healthy supply of rumors suggesting something might be in the works – read more on that through here.

Cyberpunk 2077 Developer Hires Modders To Work On The Game

A recent announcement post on the Cyberpunk 2077 modding community discord channel reveals that modders Hambalko Bence, Blumster, Kote Akos, and rfuzzo will be joining CD Projekt Red. In the post,  Bence mentions that the modders will be joining CDPR under the company Yigsoft – which was co-founded by Bence herself. 

This team of modders are the brains behind Wolvenkit, which is an incredibly popular modding tool for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077. The modders in the post will be working on Cyberpunk 2077's backend and the "game's modding support." 

Of course, it remains to be seen what kind of updates the team will be working on – but this move seems to solidify CD Projekt Red's stance on fixing Cyberpunk 2077. The game launched in December last year, with a litanny of bugs, glitches, and performance issues on last-gen console hardware – which stirred a flurry of controversies surrounding the game

Why Is Madden 22 Auction House Locked? Can You Unlock It?

Madden 22 Auction House Locked

So, if you have been planning to get into the Madden 22 Auction House for some worthy trades, I'm sorry to tell you that it is locked for now.

Madden 22 is now officially live for all the players around the world. Still, this might not be the best Madden entry, but it does feature some significant improvements in a few modes like Franchise.

  • CHECK THIS OUT: How to Get Colin Kaepernick For Your Team in Madden 22

However, most players are interested in the Ultimate Team mode in the Madden series rather than anything else. Unfortunately, Madden 22 doesn't deliver too many new features to the Ultimate Team experience. It's still the same mode with a few minor changes in the level-up and objective system.

Madden 22 | Dynamic Gameday | All Access Deep Dive Trailer

Madden 22 | Dynamic Gameday | All Access Deep Dive Trailer

Why the Madden 22 Auction House is Locked

Unfortunately, Ultimate Team mode in any EA Sports titles could be a little bit Pay-to-Win as players who spend real-world money to get more in-game packs usually progress faster than others and have a better team with higher-rate players.

Now, the Auction House or Trades tab is probably a cheaper way to get some good players with your in-game currency, rather than spending money on packs with unknown content.

However, it seems like the Auction House won't be available for now as EA is investigating an issue in Ultimate Team. The developer shared a tweet earlier today, indicating that the Auction House will remain locked until a problem is solved in MUT 22.

EA Sports didn't reveal how long this could take to return the Auction House to the game but doesn't seem to be a serious issue. The worst-case scenario is that the game will require a new update to fix the issue and re-open the Auction House in Ultimate.

Hopefully, Auction House is the only affected tab in the Ultimate Team for this unknown problem, and you can still play online and use other sections of the mode.

Madden 22 is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. The ninth-gen version of the game will feature some exclusive features like Gameday Atmosphere and better visuals.

Top 5 new features in the Genshin Impact 2.1 update

Genshin Impact continues to develop further, with the miHoYo gearing up to launch the 2.1 "Floating World Under the Moonlight" update on September 1 for all the platforms.

Following the Genshin Impact 2.1 live stream, the team behind the RPG title has unveiled some of the most significant and major changes of the 2.1 version. While there's plenty of content to explore in the Genshin Impact 2.1 update, there are several features that players should look for.

Before jumping in, we want our readers to know that the official 2.1 broadcast revealed three new redeem codes that are giving away over 300 free Primogems along with other valuable resources to the Travelers. Hence, make sure to redeem them before they get expired.

Here's a look at the list of the best five new features coming with the Genshin Impact 2.1 update.

Character Teaser – "Yoimiya: The Queen of Summer on Narukami Island" | Genshin Impact

Top 5 features in the Genshin Impact 2.1 update

#1 Raiden Shogun

Genshin Impact 2.1 update
Everything revealed about Raiden Shogun so far (Image via miHoYo)

New characters are the spotlight of any Genshin Impact update, and version 2.1 is no different. Raiden Shogun is one of the 5-star characters that players are most excited about.

Raiden Shogun also known as Baal, the Electro Archon, and the God of Eternity, doesn't seem to be on the friendliest terms with Travelers after considering her leaked abilities.

As per the several data miners and leakers, the normal attack of the Raiden Shogun will perform up to five consecutive spear strikes, whereas, her charged attack will deplete some stamina to perform an upwards slash. Finally, the Plunging Attack enables Baal to attack while floating in the air.

#2 New Islands – Watasumi and Sevrai

Genshin Impact Watasumi and Sevrai Islands (Image via miHoYo)

If you think you've explored and uncovered each and every secret of all the islands in the Inazuma region, you're absolutely wrong. In the latest 2.1 live stream, miHoYo has confirmed the addition of two new islands, Watasumi and Sevrai, in the Inazuma region.

From the gameplay footage shown during the live stream, one can clearly see the constant lighting storm surrounding the whole Watasumi island that inarguably looks scary and provides a supernatural theme. Whereas, Sevrai island mainly consists of water; hence players can expect a lot of lakes and waterfalls in their surroundings.

#3 New Mechanic – Fishing

Fish can be added to Serenitea Pot (Image via miHoYo)

Fishing is a relaxing activity that's common in RPG games. To follow up this tradition, miHoYo has finally decided to add a fishing mini-game, through which players can go angling for a variety of fishes across the continent of Tevyat.

Travelers can simply use the trapped fish to produce meat or exchange it for rewards. Moreover, with the Pool of Sapphire Grace, the gamers will also be able to grow an Ornamental Fish in their personal realm.

#4 Moonlight Merriment event

As the Genshin Impact 2.1 approaches, another festival is coming to the game, celebrating a Moonlight event. During the event, the Travelers have to navigate back to the Liyue region to be a part of the festival, which features a lot of interesting activities such as hunting the special treasures chest.

miHoYo also showcased a short clip during the live stream in which Sayu is holding a literal fish claymore, unveiling a new free-to-play weapon in the game. As of writing, we don't have much info about the event, but players can grab rewards like free primogems, mora, and other valuable resources.

#5 Archon Quest (Chapter II: Act III)

Archon Quest Chapter II: Act III (Image via miHoYo)

In version 2.1, Travelers will pick up right where the 2.0 story left off. Things will also continue evolving, with the arrival of a new archon quest – Omnipresence Over Mortal, within the horizons of the Inazuma region.

From the title, it seems like the story will still be revolving severely around the Raiden Shogun and her army in command for the Vision Hunt and Sakoku Decree. Since it's the final chapter of the quest, the Inazuma arc of the story will also conclude once the Travelers complete it.

Genshin Impact is available on PC, PS4, PS5, and mobile, with a Switch version in development.

Chun-Li From Street Fighter Comes Out Kicking in Action-Packed Cosplay

"Want to see my Kung-Fu? I'll show you." Chu-Li cosplayer hits all the right moves with their amazing attire.

Street Fighter is one of Capcom's most beloved fighting games, making the rounds since 1987. Inspired by the manga Karate baka ichidai, the title is one of the highest-grossing video game franchises of all time and serves as one of Capcom's flagship series with total sales of 46 million units worldwide as of December last year.

In appreciation of Street Fighter's very first female fighter, cosplayer Giulia Valeriani brings the character into the real world.

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition | Akira Gameplay Trailer

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition | Akira Gameplay Trailer

25-year-old Giulia Valeriani, otherwise known as moonchild_77 on Instagram, is a fitness trainer and digital artist when they're not performing kick-ass moves and dressing up as Street Fighter's Chu-Li. Giulia perfects Chu-Li's strength with well-toned muscles that is sure to defeat anyone that stands in her way.

Wearing a black sleeveless evening gown in one picture as well as Chun-Li's trademark hairstyle, Giulia takes the "strongest woman in the world" to new levels.

We can also see Giulia don those scary spiked metal bracelets that Chun-Li wears to help tone and exercise her body when performing her kicking moves and also helps stabilize her centre of gravity during a Hyakuretsukyaku as well as limit her during supers such as the Senretsukyaku to avoid overexerting her muscles. Of course, the spikes are also used for the purpose of intimidation.

If you enjoy Giulia's Chu-Li, you must check out her Morrigan Aensland cosplay, a fictional antiheroine character and the female protagonist in Capcom's Darkstalkers series as well as many others right here. As a word of warning, many images are NSFW.

Genshin Impact Fans Unhappy With Anniversary Rewards, Demand 100 Pulls

Genshin Impact's first anniversary is around the corner, and there are some big plans in place for the game, but fans seem to be quite disappointed by them.

Towards the latter half of the year, a large number of AAA titles were released. Despite the high competition, Genshin Impact managed to outshine several titles out there and rose to become one of the most talked-about aspects in the gaming industry.

  • MORE: Genshin Impact 2.1 Stream News – Scaramouche, La Signora Are Back, Raiden Ei, Kokomi Banners Release Dates, And More

The next update that is slated to release in the game is the 2.1 Update, and it will be releasing in September. In the update, we will be getting tons of stuff, including several new characters, regions, quests, items, and a brand new fishing feature.

Genshin Impact Fans Unhappy With Anniversary Rewards, Demand 100 Pulls

During the live stream, miHoYo not only announced all the new content that will be arriving as part of the update but also gave us some information about the anniversary events. We did know for a fact that the anniversary celebrations will be quite big, thanks to the leaks.

It was revealed that as part of the celebrations, players will be getting x2270 Primogems and x10 Fate. This means that players will be able to get a total of 23 pulls via the anniversary celebrations.

This hasn't gone down quite well with the fans who have expressed their disapproval against the rewards. Many were expecting much greater rewards from miHoYo's end, considering this was the first anniversary of the game, and it has done exceedingly well lately.

Why exactly fans are angry?

If you know how the pity system works in Genshin Impact, you might be well aware of the fact that you need 90 pulls for a guaranteed 5-star. Of course, you can get one much earlier as well, but that's just based on luck.

Fans were expecting one 5-star character at the very least, and considering that this doesn't guarantee even that, many are likely to be disappointed. The posts have been spanning from Twitter to Reddit, and miHoYo might take note of it. That being said, the developers have mentioned that more gifts will be revealed in the days to come, so it is very much possible that players might get the 100 pulls they asked for.
