Whereas Capcom used to tease us with the possibility of the characters for the following year, this year they broke the tradition. They revealed all six DLC characters for Season 3 in the cinematic opening trailer for the upcoming Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition!




The trailer starts with Ryu trying to meditate to control his powers as he sees Akuma approaching towards him from behind a waterfall. Then we are indulged in the beautiful mastery of the montage that re-introduces the franchise once again. It beautifully portrays the world of Street Fighter and the legendary world warriors who shaped the tournament as well as the universe of the game each playfully introduce themselves to the audience through their signature gesture or movements.

Within the rally of these worthy fighters who already made it to the Street Fighter V roster till now and then some new faces, that are yet to be included. These six new faces for Street Fighter V Season 3 DLC characters to be are Blanka, Cody, Falke, G, Sagat and Sakura. Four of them are from previous installments of the game except Falke and G, who are the newcomers here. The Season 3 Character Pass will get you all six of them as soon as they are released to join the brawl.




From her days of chasing Ryu for becoming his apprentice and constantly being at fight with her rival fighter Karin, Sakura has grown up and changed a lot. She definitely is not that cute-little school girl anymore as she is seeking new adventures after graduation. Kasugano Residence will be her very own stage, which took inspiration from her stage in Street Fighter Alpha 2. Sakura will be the first among the six to join the battle on January 16, 2018, while release date for the five others remains still unannounced.




There was also an announcement for Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, which is an anthology pack featuring 12 awesome titles from the Street Fighter saga since 1987. So, this looks like a perfect opportunity to get all those iconic games altogether for a trip to nostalgia lane. Plus, you get to hone your skills with games like Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike from the collection.

Tom Clancy's The Division Update 1.8 and Free Weekend

Ubisoft has just dropped the biggest free update for their online-only action role-playing video game Tom Clancy's The Division. With that update released, they have another promotional offer for this multiplayer shooter game. Update 1.8 is going by the name "Resistance", which is available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One now. It will add an extra area to the West Side Pier map, including Resistance and Skirmish modes.

For short details of all the content that comes with Update 1.8, you can take a quick look at the launch trailer clip of it.




In Resistance, enemy teams will join up as teams to fight against you in waves, which is highly unlikely of them. You can firm up your defenses and a lot other stuff using resources dropped by your enemies once they are killed. So, the best you can do in a four members team is to try and stay alive for as long as you can. The changes are definitely made for good and the game is even better than it was before with the update.

Skirmish on the other hand is more like player versus player mode that is designed for two teams of four players engaged in killing each other while the clock is ticking. There is a social hub called Camp Clinton, which is almost similar to the main safe house Terminal. You can buy exotic weapons and new gears to even the odds of battlefield.

Now, along with this free update, there comes a free weekend of Tom Clancy's The Division, offering players to have a trial of the game followed by a sweet discount of 70% off on the whole package. Massive Entertainment and Ubisoft allows you to play The Division for free from December 7-10. The progress made during this period will be transferred to the main game if you choose to buy it following the free weekend.




Currently, the trial will only let you play for six hours, which might upset a lot of gamers but it also grants you access to all three DLC expansions; Underground, Survival and Last Stand. After releasing almost a year ago, The Division has finally rising once again from a slow running as the game have seen an all time increase of active users of 150% on daily basis, having a total of 9.5 million users right now. Hopefully, the numbers will rise following the free weekend experience for sure.

Activision and Bungie are on a mission to take over with Destiny 2 and within a very short while of the game's release we also came to know that the first ever expansion pack DLC for the game will be titled 'Curse of Osiris'. All we were unbeknown of was when it is going to come up or how long it would take for us to get a look at the clip they are going to drop for the game pack.

Resident Evil 7 Sells 4 Million Copies

The attempt to re-define the genre of survival horror video game by Capcom was quite successful and we can tell that by the response of fans and critics over the release of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Another news on the horizon is that the game has just sold over 4 million copies recently. Despite being a great number, it fails to please the developer and publisher studio. Now this landmark of reaching 4 million unit sales of Resident Evil 7 was set by Capcom earlier this year and looks like they have just reached their target already.

Resident Evil 7 Sells 4 Million Copies

However, they expected to cross the mark a bit earlier than it has. Because, they made assumption before launch that the game will sell an estimate of 4 million copies within a very short time after its release and it actually took nearly seven months for Resident Evil 7 to do that. When Resident Evil 7 shipped 3.5 million copies on release, they took this as a sign of a solid start and then it kind of slowed down.

The actual estimate made by Capcom was a total of 10 million copies for a lifetime but given the fact that while they earned critical acclaim for re-inventing the series with RE7, this move from Capcom has also made a lot of old Resident Evil fanboys upset. This doesn't essentially made the game a flop one but the way they have revamped the world of Resident Evil as we knew it, plus a new way of game-playing along with several DLC to expand the game even further calls for a bit more revenue stream to be honest.

Another reason for Capcom's disappointment could be the fact that the previous installment of the franchise; Resident Evil 6 managed to sell a total of 4.8 million copies and that was actually a lot worse game compared to this one. Still, there are hopes for them to reach their estimate 10 million unit sell as the overall life-cycle of games have significantly expanding these days. Plus, a great number of players go for digital download and those numbers are greater than the ones who buy game disks.

Also, Resident Evil 7: Gold Edition is coming this December 12 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which contains upcoming DLC packs "Not a Hero" and "End of Zoe" as well as previously released Banned Footage Volume 1 and 2. Now, this can hopefully increase a sells raise of the game a bit.

Doom's Nintendo Switch Release Date

Bethesda Softworks have previously announced to bring The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for Nintendo Switch in June, 2017 and Switch owners were jumping with joy to have this great title on their port. Then, after a few days, it becomes clear that the developer studio is actually up to port a lot of their fan-favorite titles to Switch eventually. Major game titles like Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was included in that list. Hopefully other popular titles like Dishonored and The Evil Within will join the race in the future too.

We promised that if there was any further development regarding this matter, we will update you and here we are with an interview clip that features executive producer Marty Stratton and creative director Hugo Martin from id Software talking about Doom's Nintendo Switch debut.




Recently, Bethesda has officially confirmed Doom's Nintendo Switch version release date and it is November 10, 2017. The gates of hell will open in North America and Europe on the same day. Given the limitations of the platform, the boys at id Soft tried their level best to put everything they could into the release to deliver the experience of the original Doom.

On Switch, Doom will mostly be like an arcade experience as the developers see it. Players on Nintendo Switch will get the entire single-player campaign. All of the difficulty modes will be there including the "Ultra Nightmare" mode where you play with a single life and can die from a single blow. There is the arcade mode, so that you can replay all the levels over and over. All the weapons and runes will be there for you but also there is always a clock ticking.

In multiplayer, the gameplay is fast-paced and quite competitive. There are 12 modes, along with 18 maps to explore and all the DLC packs will be there too. Team death-match or capture mode, you name it, it's there. Overall, without tuning anything done they really tried to bring all the actual features of the main game.

The people who already played Doom before and the one who are going to enjoy the game for the first time on Switch, it will be great experience for them both. Since, this is not a game which people can play for half an hour and then leave, Doom sure will provide you hours of monster slaying fun-moments that will make it worth.
