Whether you jump into action in a four-player co-op or play along with AI-controlled partners is entirely up to you. This is sort of compensation from Treyarch for replacing the traditional campaign mode, where players will be exploring unique storylines through different time period.

Bungie and Microsoft Considering Destiny 2 Cross-Play

Developer Bungie and Microsoft are interested to add cross-play feature to online-only multiplayer shooter Destiny 2.

Developer studio Bungie has made a name for them with the success of multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny franchise and Destiny 2 has been quite triumphant as well. However, the game is allegedly dying and the company is doing their best to bring their players back. Aside from announcing their third expansion Forsaken, they are considering offering cross-play with D2 and since Microsoft is interested as well, it seems like a good opportunity to play it throughout a wide variety of platforms if not all.

After initially debuting on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the game shortly arrived on PC in 2017 only a month after. Players are all drawn into large, futuristic shared world where they play the role of a Guardian of good trying to protect The Last City from an invasion of alien warlord Dominus Ghaul and his Red Legion. Gamers have played the campaign over and over, while participating in many raids and timed community events in multiplayer mode, which is limited to respective platforms.

RELATED: Destiny 2: Forsaken Story Reveal

When asked about the possibility of introducing cross-play to their game, Steve Cotton and Scott Taylor from developer team stated that this is a concept they talk about frequently but currently there is nothing at works regarding this unique feature. Also, there is no chance of having this aspect added to the game before launch of Forsaken DLC. However, it seems that Bungie is very enthusiastic about introducing this feature to D2, we might not have to wait for too long to see it.

RELATED: Destiny 2 Escalation Protocol Details

Xbox President Mike Ybarra also created a poll on Twitter last month seeking fan response on whether they want to see Destiny 2 get a shared platform gaming experience or not and he got 87 percent of response positive.

RELATED: Destiny 2 Warmind DLC Details

Destiny 2 cross-play is a long-cherished fanboy dream that needs to come true as soon as possible and Bungie has been very willing to come on board with that plan. However, things might take an interesting turn considering PlayStation is commonly regarded as the lead console for the series, who adds exclusive content for their platform in each expansion pack and their recent controversies of not willing to offer cross-play on PS4 has already put them in a sticky situation.

RELATED: Destiny 2 "Go Fast" Update Details

Sony faced major backlash regarding account restriction of Fortnite for other consoles and Bethesda has also called them out for not being friendly to make cross-play available on upcoming Fallout 76 game. They seem not to care if they lose players and keep the multiplayer to themselves as they have just sold over 80 million PlayStation 4 units till date. D2: Forsaken will debut on September 4 for all three major platforms and they all would be busy for some time enjoying the new DLC.

Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy Becomes Fastest-Selling Switch Game of 2018

Within days after its launch, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy became 2018's fastest-selling Switch game.

After publisher Sony came up with remastered versions of first three titles from the popular Crash Bandicoot series on PlayStation 4 as Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy a year ago, it made a great comeback to modern consoles. Nintendo decided to introduce a port for this iconic '90s franchise into their next-gen gaming gadget Nintendo Switch a little later, just as they always do. Just as they launched the title on June 29, it became the fastest-selling Switch game of this year.

Although, Nintendo has dominated the video game market last year, they haven't been able to make it large this year yet but that has completely changed when Crash Bandicoot started cashing in some serious buck immediately after Switch debut. Aside from nostalgia factor, players are seriously hooked in for an improved gameplay and better graphics. Reportedly, the game is currently ruling the UK gaming charts and pushed another Nintendo game Mario Tennis Aces from top.

Lately, action-adventure first-person shooter Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has been ported to Switch and doing considerably well. Despite Wolf 2 being an anticipated title on the portable console, it couldn't keep par with Crash Bandicoot. Xbox One edition of N. Sane Trilogy actually outsold Switch by 250 copies as it also saw release on PC and Xbox. Just as how immensely popular these titles were originally on PlayStation when it came out first, they still are today after two decades.

Since Nintendo have seen a huge drop at their stock prices following E3 2018, the success of N. Sane Trilogy is great news for the company. However, staying on top of gaming charts for long is quite the trick. Not having many upcoming first-party exclusive titles except Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo is still selling tons of third-party games to remain a dominant force. The publisher has shown that they can still make magic without their flagship series of Mario and Zelda.

Destiny 2 PlayStation 4 Free Weekend

Bungie and Activision offers a free weekend to enjoy full Destiny 2 campaign and Crucible for fans on PS4.

With the sequel of 2014's original multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny, developer Bungie and publisher Activision made a huge buck. Destiny 2 was one of the biggest PC launch for the publisher company and did pretty good on consoles as well. If you have somehow missed out the opportunity to be a Guardian and fight to save The Last City from a new ruthless enemy, then you are in luck because a Free Weekend offer on D2 is just on the horizon for PlayStation 4 owners.

Starting from Friday, June 29 you are allowed to enter the trail from 12:01 AM PT till Monday, July 2 at 10 AM PT. You can pre-load the game now and the short trailer below will give you a brief of the offer.

Whereas, games like team-based FPS shooter Overwatch from Blizzard Entertainment or tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege from Ubisoft throw out Free Weekend for fans to play trail of their game every other month, Bungie took no part in that sport so far. Maybe a few instance in the beginning, but not for a while afterwards. However, they are offering a trail that lets you play full campaign, where you can fight against the invasion by alien warlord Dominus Ghaul and his Red Legion.

RELATED: Destiny 2 Escalation Protocol Details

All existing game modes and all the gears are up for grabs throughout the whole weekend for free. Just like always, all of your progress made through the trail can be transferred to the main game if you decide to purchase it later. Even though all those rumors of D2 is dead because of a decaying fan-base and their terrible decisions with DLC distribution are not entirely true, looks like Bungie is trying to revitalize Destiny community for their upcoming Forsaken expansion pack and a slight selling advantages.

RELATED: Destiny 2 Warmind DLC Details

Destiny 2 is an online-only multiplayer first-person shooter from Bungie and Activision, available on all major platforms. Earlier this month, a Free Weekend trail on Xbox One was thrown as well for Xbox Live Gold members from June 7. We are only wondering if they are willing to offer something similar to players on PC anytime soon. Otherwise, it just looks like one-sidedness towards console gamers, while a better chunk of the community might feel left out.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Coming To Nintendo Switch

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy makes its way with remastered versions of classic platform games to Nintendo Switch later this week.

Publisher Activision made a smart move with Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy by adding up remastered versions of first three titles from the popular Crash Bandicoot series that was originally developed by Naughty Dog studio for PlayStation. Nintendo Switch fans can rejoice as this compilation of great platform titles are coming to their next gen console as a port on June 29, 2018. As a PS4 version is already released in 2017, the game is headed to PC and Xbox One at the same time this week.

Back in the 90's, there was only one contender for Nintendo's Mario in the video game market and that was SEGA's Sonic the Hedgehog. Although, Mario still remained the more admired franchise, Sony decided to butt head in the competition by developing Crash Bandicoot platform video game series for PlayStation. The original game was soon followed by sequels Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot: Warped. However, latter sequels and spin-off release have failed miserably.

After lying dormant for nearly a decade, the series returned to its glory on latest Sony console PS4 last year and the improvement of graphics while staying faithful to original gameplay is definitely noteworthy. The Nintendo Switch version of the game appears to be a lot more fun because you can just carry around your adventures anywhere as you go as the bandicoot hero smashes through obstacles, spin attacks objects, evade enemies like polar bear or other monsters.

Even though Naughty Dog originally created the franchise, Activision hired Vicarious Visions for the remastered collection, which initially sold 2.5 million copies already. Upon making the Switch debut alongside PC and Xbox One, the game will surely bump up their selling point. The success has led to a rumor of a new title being developed for releasing in 2019 as well.

In one of E3 2018's most shocking moments, it looks like Bungie has your beloved Hunter Vanguard in some real trouble.

Despite Bungie's online-only multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny 2 being one of the two best-selling games on console alongside another Activision title Call of Duty: WWII, it faced some tough times with the release of "Curse of Osiris" and "Warmind" expansion pack DLC. Now that the third one in line has just announced shortly, fans knew that something is up and they will be let down once again. Unfortunately, they are proven right during Sony's E3 2018 press conference.

As the trailer opens, we see one of the most beloved Guardians and everyone's favorite hunter Vanguard Cayde-6 badly injured, sitting on his knees and even missing a chunk of his face. He surely is in trouble but isn't trying to run away. His ghost is taken out and then the camera moves around to reveal the return of Prince Uldren Sov holding an Ace of Spades hand cannon to his face. He blasts off the wisecrackin’ Exo on spot and then walks over his body along with his followers.

With that, D2 just killed of one of their most celebrated character from Destiny-verse, which drove players either frustrated or mad over Bungie. In an attempt to bring back players to the game, they decided to raise the stakes more than they ever did. They have introduced the threats of aliens trying to destroy the world before and it worked too but the studio believed taking a fan-favorite personality like Cayde off the board will be so much relatable to players on personal level.

RELATED: Destiny 2: Warmind Reveal

D2 community has been devastated since they witnessed this and the Destiny subreddit is the solid proof of that with the increasing number of goofs and memes in the loving memory of Cayde-6. On September 4, Destiny 2: Forsaken is set to release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We hope that Guardians get their hands on Uldren Sov to get their revenge on their fallen comrade and settle scores then.

Obviously we are getting more detailed look at Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 or maybe an update on where they are with Spyro. A possible look at the next Destiny 2 expansion wouldn't be too much to ask since their Year 2 reveal is marked for June 5. Releases from Blizzard division will probably be saved up for a later occasion.

Though Bethesda E3 lineup may not excite a hell lot of people and they are sort of new to these press conferences and showcasing upcoming projects, they do have a change of pace. Games revealed at E3 2018 by them will be some titles that are not going to drop very soon.

Legal questions were raised for having such progression in one of their Triple A games.

Adding 4K support for Xbox One X was an advancement that only expanded new opportunities for their consoles with Xbox Play Anywhere initiative, building a bridge between PC and Xbox One.

Hopes of hearing about a sequel for Bloodborne and Horizon Zero Dawn are high from many players but chances are very slim. Sony’s conference may feature some new CoD: BO4 footage considering their DLC exclusivity on PS4. MediEvil Remastered or Syphon Filter remake have hooked us on some hope but some of them may remain unannounced for now and saved up for conferences at their own events like Paris Games Week and PlayStation Experience.

Square Enix at E3 2018
In past, Square Enix and Konami used to rule at E3 but sadly they both are a dimmed shadow of what they once were. Speaking of shadows, the former have their focus on Shadow of the Tomb Raider from developer Crystal Dynamics now, which may bring them into limelight again. A reveal trailer for the game is expected at their E3 Showcase. Oh and let's not forget about their action role-playing project Kingdom Hearts III as it has an official release date waiting for announcement.

After long debacle and debates, their spokesperson revealed earlier that Final Fantasy VII Remake will come any time before 2023, meaning they are not in any hurry with that one. Some update on untitled Avengers Project with Marvel would be nice as we never heard anything else after 2017. With release of Final Fantasy XV and Nier: Automata in recent years, they are slowly trying to restore their former glory but time will only tell whether they would succeed or not.

Ubisoft at E3 2018
Instead of arriving at the grad-party with flashy new range of video games, Ubisoft seems more comfortable to hang out with their old titles and keep those franchises alive by providing regular downloadable content or arranging seasonal events to support the cause. We have For Honor and Rainbow Six Siege to prove that theory. Fingers crossed for a brand-new trailer on Skull & Bones, The Crew 2 and The Division 2, because we know that Beyond Good and Evil 2 will eventually join the parade.

Speculations are pretty damn high for a new Splinter Cell sequel, which can easily become one of the Triple A games 2018 has to offer and who better can do that except for Sam Fisher? We still haven't catch our breath following the shocking revelation of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, a successor sequel to Assassin's Creed Origins. Following a surprise leak from one of their merchandise for the game on a French site named Jeuxvideo, Ubisoft swiftly acted by dropping a teaser that let us know it will be set in Greece.

One of the few other things from our bucket-lists is clearly a trailer or gameplay of the much talked about Resident Evil 2 Remake from Capcom. A release date on YS Net’s Shenmue 3 alongside a gameplay trailer and new clip on CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 will do just fine. This upcoming open-world RPG has the potential of becoming the most anticipated PC games 2018 will probably see while it also rules on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, much like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from the same developers.

As we all are very excited for the arrival of E3, we surely cannot wait for some of those biggest E3 rumors come true and keep you all updated as much as we can.

Call of Duty: WWII – Attack of the Undead! Community Event

"Attack of the Undead" Community Event introduces Multiplayer X Zombies crossover featuring new game modes.

Activision and Sledgehammer Games have released update 1.15 for their hugely successful first-person shooter game Call of Duty: WWII from last year. With that, a brand-new community event "Attack of the Undead!" goes live with hordes of undeads into the battlefield. Imagine the already heated up intense action of multiplayer being raided by restless zombie armies, while you have to take care of enemy fires as well. That is exactly what this new global event is like.

We are going for a few more details about Attack of the Undead! after you finish watching this trailer below.

Attack of the Undead! sets to be the biggest event in CoD: WWII history that will run from May 29 to June 26 to keep everyone engaged in an undead nightmare. Sledgehammer drops three new Multiplayer modes for this limited-time community event and they are Infected, Hordepoint and Relic of the Undead. Each week a new mode will be unlocked and players will be able to experience some new variations on fan-favorite Nazi Zombies cooperative game mode.

The event kicks off with Infected on May 29 and instead of shooting down others, you are out to bite people. While one person starts the match as an infected zombie who tries to infect as many as possible, others will try to shoot them down. Then Hordepoint begins on June 5 and it sounds familiar because it is just an alternate take at classic Hardpoint mode but a bit twisted with zombies in it. Relic of the Undead eventually drops in June 12 to keep you running from your opponents with a Skull Relic in your hands and you have to keep it to yourself for longest period of time to win.

To defend yourselves against all odds you are getting seven new weapons such as Blunderbuss, a Fire Axe, Lever Action Sniper Rifle, Nambu Type 2 SMG, PTRS 41 Sniper Rifle, Stinger LMG and a really long Claymore Sword to decapitate zombie armies. A Nazi Zombies survival map Gröesten Haus, which is near Kyffhäuser Mountains is where this hardcore slaughter-fest is going to take place. All three new Multiplayer modes will be played on this map and so, it is now more opened up to take cover.

There was an issue where the game used to crash whenever a player would disconnect their controller during party invite, which has been fixed within the patch. Trouble with losing tokens, losing functionality, split screen issues and several other problems are also taken care of. Missing audio problem in case for some weapons is no longer a concern and UI improvements are added. Available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Update 1.15 for Call of Duty: WWII is live for PS4 now and soon to be released for other platforms as well.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Revealed

Developer Treyarch has confirmed Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 not having any single-player campaign at all.

Finally a long running wild-goose chase has ended as Treyarch and Activision has released some trailers of their upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on a community revel event today! With that this popular first-person shooter sub-series is making its return with their fourth installments. All the rumors on battle royale, jetpacks and zombies finally came out to be true and look like; the developers have put a lot of their effort on this project, because all of those clips were amazing.

Check out this cinematic trailer for CoD: Black Ops 4 that highly emphasize on playing as a team. In other words, its Multiplayer mode.

Just because Activision has decided to shift their focus on multiplayer doesn't mean that they are abandoning single-player mode permanently. The overall change they are introducing us to is exclusive for this year’s game. Future Call of Duty titles will return to what people consider as the roots of the franchise. Meanwhile, you are all welcome to enjoy some high-paced futuristic setting action with guns blazing and flame-throwing at enemies to blow them up alongside your teammates.

Shooting through walls and bringing down helicopters in battlefield will soon make you realize that your every shot counts. Your healing is no longer automatic and so, using your special recovery button will be as vital as it is to reload frequently. Combat system is mostly ground based and weapon customization is one of the primary aspects. There are attachments unique to your guns that cannot be shared with all class. Treyarch made sure that you would become trigger-happy playing this one.

We now want to take peak at some Zombies action that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has in stores for us. The first clip takes us to a medieval age setup in a gladiatorial arena with flesh-eating beings of the supernatural. Yup, that's what they are.

Black Ops 4's cooperative Zombies mode is perhaps what Treyarch offers us as a compensation for replacing story mode. You can play Zombies mode as solo with AI-controlled partners or in a four-player co-op like always. There goes your substitute for single player mode and all four heroes are exploring brand-new storyline as they travel back in time to fight those hordes of undead menaces. At launch, the game will offer three different Zombies experiences set apart from previous games.

Second trailer takes our time travelling heroes to a cruise setup of what seems like Titanic, where they work together to secure a relic that can unleash those ravaging terrors on Earth. Since Treyarch never had a plan to do a traditional campaign, adding back-stories for Zombies mode is sort of nice. Plus, there will be limited time events and special challenges for players to take part in squads or with aid from team members controlled by bots. Have we mentioned that these campaigns can also be tweaked with some added customization options? They do.

Blood of the Dead

Also, the rumors on the game not having a single player campaign turn out to be true all along. Which brings a brand-new a battle royale mode in its place called Blackout and you do know how this genre of games works by now, right? Of course you do. If you do remember Nuketown map from Call of Duty's Black Ops franchise, then the one that features in this mode will blow your mind as it is the biggest map in entire series till date. Time for trend to take over tradition.

If running through a desert map buck naked with a frying pan in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds or shooting people hoping around in Epic Games' free-to-play Fortnite makes you think that you have seen all there is to see in battle royale, then Blackout mode from Black Ops 4 will open a whole new world in front of you. Reportedly, they are to add characters, map locations and weapons from all previous titles to this one. The action will take place on ground, sea and air to expand your reaches even further.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Have No Single-Player Campaign

Apparently, whatever glimpse of features we have witnessed says that the developers did what they could to fill the emptiness of a single-player campaign. Also, zombies are to appear in the middle of this chaos, which will be a lot more exciting and more intense for players. However, the multiplayer aspect will have some narrative after all and most possibly, the new battle royale mode Blackout is going to make PUBG and every other last-man-standing shooter look pale in comparison for sure.
