  2. Here's what we know about Fortnite's refund system and how to request a refund. View the full article
  3. The advantages of including your name in the title of a massively successful game cannot be overstated, a fact only Sid Meier and PlayerUnknown are intimately aware of. Sid Meier’s titular signature always struck me as a bit self-congratulatory, and the same could be said for PlayerUnknown but there is a valid reason for their inclusion. In the case of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, the name confers legitimacy and ownership. Brendan Greene created Arma 2 DayZ Battle Royale, Arma 3 Battle Royale, and consulted on H1Z1 King of the Kill. But Battlegrounds isn’t a mod, nor is it another developer’s work, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a manifestation of Greene’s uncompromised vision. Continue reading… View the full article
  4. Sea of Thieves' latest update, patch 1.0.5, fixes flying ships among other issues as Rare continues its dedication to correcting problems in April before shifting focus to new content in May. As detailed on a recent forum post, ships will no longer shoot up into the air when sinking. Twitch streamer KonzolvilagRicsi shared a brief video highlighting the strange problem.

  5. Fortnite Battle Royale players have been getting ready for a meteor to hit the game map for months now, but one Reddit theory thinks it isn't a meteor at all: it's an alien mothership. As pointed out by Eurogamer, Reddit user Kensyys thinks people have had it wrong this whole time. While the focus has been on Fortnite's insanely popular Battle Royale mode, the meteor has also been visible in the PvE Save the World mode, and more potential clues there point toward aliens.

  6. The Avengers: Infinity War Iron Spider suit has been unveiled for Spider-Man on PlayStation 4. As detailed on PlayStation Blog, Peter Parker's shiny new gear from the upcoming MCU film is one of the three suits included in the Spidey Suit pack pre-order bonus. You can check out the Iron Spider suit in action in the gameplay trailer below. Insomniac was given access to the actual CG asset from Infinity War to ensure the suit is as authentic as possible. Marvel’s Spider-Man will feature a variety of other suits inspired by comics and film for players to try on. Continue reading… View the full article
  7. The Belgian Gaming Commission has ruled that some loot boxes are illegal, following a similar decision recently made by the Netherlands. In a statement released today from minister of justice, Koen Geens, it was announced loot boxes in FIFA 18, Overwatch, and Counter Strike: Global Offensive constitute games of chance, making them subject to Belgian gaming law. "The games with paid loot boxes, as currently offered in our country, are therefore in violation of the gaming legislation and can be dealt with under criminal law," reads the statement. "The loot boxes must therefore also be removed." Continue reading… View the full article

  9. Dark Souls Remastered is coming to PC and console very soon, and PC players who own the original title will be able to "upgrade" at a discounted price.

  10. Sony has unveiled the PlayStation Plus free games lineup for May 2018: Beyond: Two Souls (PS4) Rayman Legends (PS4) Risen 3: Titan Lords (PS3) Eat Them! (PS3) King Oddball (PS Vita, Cross-Buy with PS3 and PS4) Furmins (PS Vita) Quantic Dreams' Beyond: Two Souls first released in 2013. In our initial review, we say Beyond "is an ambitious opus, let down by lack of meaningful player choice and an unfocused plot." Meanwhile, we gave 2013's Rayman Legends a 9.5, calling it a "delightful platformer" bursting with fresh ideas. Continue reading… View the full article
  11. Jurassic World: Evolution continues to cast some well-known stars from the franchise. Developer Frontier has announced Bryce Dallas Howard and BD Wong will reprise their roles as Claire Dearing and Dr. Henry Wu respectively, in the upcoming park building sim. However, it's not known how heavily they'll feature. Howard first appeared in 2015's Jurassic World as the park's operations manager, Claire Dearing, and the character is returning in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Meanwhile, BD Wong first portrayed Dr. Henry Wu in the original 1993 Jurassic Park and then in Jurassic World. Howard and Wong will join Jeff Goldblum, who's already been confirmed to appear in the game as Dr. Ian Malcolm. Malcolm acts as an adviser for the park you build in-game.

  13. Rocket boosting a 60-ton mech to the top of mountain then raining down missiles on your enemy will never not be cool. At the same time, seeing every single piece of that salvo miss the one body part you were actually aiming for is pretty much the polar opposite of satisfaction. Such are the highs and lows of BattleTech, a turn-based tactics game that has as much exciting flavor as it does an overreliance on infuriating random-number generation. BattleTech is an old and iconic franchise that began on the tabletop, where it spurred the creation of video game series like MechWarrior and MechAssault with its giant walking tanks. Here, in a turn-based setting in which you control a highly customizable lance of four mechs, it feels at home. It’s a thoughtful game that encourages careful planning in both the composition of your mech fighting force and the shots you tell them to take, but some design missteps often rob the execution of that planning of much of its potential impact.

  15. Nintendo's cardboard creative system Labo is out, and people are already making some cool things with it. Labo is currently available in two standard variations, the Robot and Variety kits which feature premade Toy-Cons and games. Both also come with the Toy-Con garage, which allows users to create their own fun, and the Nintendo Labo Subreddit, as well as users on Twitter, have not disappointed. Over on YouTube, one user has made a Game and Watch approximation by placing a sheet with cutouts over the Switch's screen. Ayatross on Twitter has turned Labo into a password safe using the touch screen controls. Continue reading… View the full article
  16. Frostpunk combines the best elements of survival, city-building, and 4X games into one of the more captivating strategy games I’ve played in a while. Thanks to stellar presentation and storytelling, it seamlessly combines these different components into one interesting experience that never feels like a burden to play, even when the difficulty of maintaining a colony during an oppressive ice age ratchets up. Frostpunk sets the stage with a compelling and timely backstory in which climate change devastates humanity in the late 1800s. Those left alive must seek out the few remaining resources as they attempt to carve out the last city on Earth. It’s not a hopeful tale, but one that effectively communicates the challenges that lie ahead and sets the stage for some difficult and desperate decisions. Continue reading… View the full article
  17. The NPD Group released its report on the best-selling hardware and software for last month, with Far Cry 5 coming in on top. The best-selling hardware platform for March 2018 was PlayStation 4, but the best-selling console for March was the Nintendo Switch 32GB with Neon Red/Blue Joy-Con bundle. Of the top 4 best-selling games, three were exclusives, with Microsoft's Sea of Thieves coming in second place, followed by MLB: The Show on PS4 and Kirby Star Allies on Switch. Sea of Thieves "generated the highest launch month sales" for a Rare since NPD started tracking games in 1995. Here are the top 10 best selling games by revenue for the month of March, according to the NPD Group: Continue reading… View the full article
  18. The April Xbox update officially begins rolling out for all Xbox One owners starting today, bringing with it a number of changes to the service. The update adds several new video and display options, additional ease of use settings, new functionality for Mixer users, and more. A complete rundown of all the added features and updates is available on the Xbox Wire. The April Update adds Auto Low-Latency Mode (ALLM) for Xbox One, which will notify compatible displays when players jump into a game, causing the screen to switch to low latency video mode, sometimes called game mode. For players using AMD Radeon FreeSync and FreeSync 2 compatible displays, an option to allow variable refresh rate outputs is also included, which can help reduce input latency and minimize display stuttering.

  19. Battle royale became a huge hit with the launch of PUBG and Fortnite last year – so huge, that several studios started working on battle royale modes and spin-offs for their existing games (the genesis of Fortnite Battle Royale, in fact) or brand new games with battle royale in mind. It's a phenomenon that's spanned fanmade mods, indie games, mobile, and even has its hooks in big AAA franchises like the next Call of Duty and Battlefield installments.

  21. Fortnite Season 4 may begin as soon as next week. Although no official release date has been announced by Epic Games, some players are beginning to suspect Season 4 is right around the corner.
