Zombies' mode in CoD: BO4 allows you to choose from four playable characters throughout three Zombies episodes available at launch and two of which has already been showcased in trailer. Whether you jump into action in a four-player co-op or play along with AI-controlled partners is entirely up to you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
