No Man's Sky Getting Multiplayer

No Man’s Sky’s big multiplayer update is finally launches in July to to race, build and dogfight with friends.

One of the main features co-founder of developer studio Hello Games, Sean Murray had announced about their action-adventure survival game No Man’s Sky was multiplayer during pre-launch of the game. However, that was missing upon release and became one of the major causes for a huge backlash from fans. They sure have to keep themselves from making that sort of marketing missteps and in effort to improve the game; they are bringing true multiplayer experience.

You probably know by now that, Hello Games will be bringing the next big update for their 2016's release this summer and it will be released for Xbox One as well. Titled “NEXT”, this update will drop on July 24 with a full-fledged multiplayer mode that may finally bring an end to an era after awaiting two years in hope and feeling betrayed. Looks like the studio is finally up for earning some redemption by delivering what they promised for this space exploration adventure.



Initially failing to provide a lot that they actually had in stores, the game forced UK’s Advertising Standards Authority to investigate on Hello Games and its small team of approximately twelve employees. It was really surprising that even after allying up with a publisher like Sony, they would even try to do that. However, they are occasionally releasing a series of free updates to provide those features that weren't there during release and make amends for all those misleading promises.

Although partial features of multiplayer was already implemented through their third major update “The Atlas Rises”, which was released on the game's one year anniversary, the new announcement by Murray suggests that everything is going to change and more players will be taking part when the real deal comes to play. So, the excitement and fun of base building, surviving and racing together is no longer a far-fetched dream in No Man’s Sky then? Only time will tell.

We have an interview of Sean Murray coming to Inside Xbox web series to announce Multiplayer and the anticipated release date for “NEXT” update.




No Man’s Sky is already available to play on PC and PlayStation 4 and now finally coming to Xbox One along with an enhanced version for Xbox One X. Finally all 18 quintillion planets of the game are coming together very soon and some of the players are still quite skeptical but can you really blame them? We only hope that upcoming fourth major expansion really delivers what they promised and players finally get what they have been waiting for.

State of Decay 2 May Come to Steam

During a developer livestream of Xbox Exclusive State of Decay 2 at PAX East, an error message states "Unable to connect with Steam".

Open world zombie game State of Decay 2 is a sequel of 2013's original State of Decay from Undead Labs and Microsoft Studios. Though the game is an Xbox One-exclusive, it will also release for PC or you can play it on any of these two platforms with support from Microsoft’s Xbox Play Anywhere system. Aside from being available on Microsoft Store, the game might also find place on Steam, according to some recent hints from PAX-East 2018.

All these rumors suddenly arise when an unexpected error message popped up in the middle of a developer live-stream at PAX East that indicated there was a login issue regarding Steam. The video has been removed afterwards but by then, it already circulated throughout online and rumor is spread about its possible release on digital distribution platform Steam. Although the game’s FAQ has Valve’s launcher listed as a topic, there are no details to reach any conclusion on that.

Now that the video containing that error message is removed from Twitch archive of Undead Labs, it can no longer be considered as a mere buzz. While it might seem a bit weird giving up one of their most prominent title for another platform, it also makes sense if you consider this a step to sell more copies for PC. Besides, if this rumors and speculation came true then we shouldn't be very surprised because the first game of the series was initially released on Steam’s Early Access alongside Xbox 360.

In a time of crisis for Xbox exclusive games, Sea of Thieves and State of Decay 2 are the only hope for Microsoft in 2018. The former is already out and most of people owning an Xbox One are looking for the latter. Because, being an exclusive for Microsoft actually had an impact for Rare’s shared world action-adventure title. Sony’s God of War on the other hand scored an incredible response from critics, forecasting for a good run in advance and two more games; The Last of Us Part 2 and Insomniac’s Spider-Man are also joining soon.

We believe, exclusive games crisis won't be solved overnight and meanwhile, testing other platforms like Steam to improve sells in overall does sound like a reasonable idea.

State of Decay 2 PAX-East 2018 Gameplay

Within a couple of months we are going to get our hands on co-op multiplayer survival horror game State of Decay 2 from Undead Labs and Microsoft Studios. As the moment of release approaches closer every day, the developers are dropping new information every now and then to tease us some more about the game. For now, we got a brand-new trailer featuring new in-game footage and gameplay, straight outta PAX East 2018.

Be sure to take a quick look at the clip below to have some idea on combat and surrounding environments you will be stepping on from Undead Labs.




The gameplay trailer from above gives us some more in-depth glance at base building and character selection than the once we saw before. Defending your base from attacks of incoming zombie horde is as important as clearing out the once roaming in the street. Though it wasn't some serious piece of performance in the clip, we still get the idea of how things are. Most important aspect we noticed is that the balance of stockpile, build base and protect it from undead invasion at all time.

Combat system presents some variety for you to keep from being repetitive. You can sneak up on them using stealth, melee attack them directly, run over by them with your vehicle, hit them with your car door or just grab one of them and throw away. One thing that you will quickly realize after a while that, these zombies don't come at you all at once but if you linger them for some time, they will quickly overwhelm you and it will be too late then.

State of Decay 2 is an open world zombie game, which will be available to play on May 22, 2018 for PC and Xbox One as part of Xbox Play Anywhere experience. During launch, it will also be on Xbox Game Pass and at 4K resolution the game will ran on Xbox One X as well. Bravo to the developer team for not including any micro-transactions within the game, which is a great initiative in the age of loot boxes.

Dark Souls: Remastered New Gameplay

A very few games that are tough as nails like From Software’s action role-playing game Dark Souls can garner a fan following that keeps up a petition for a Remastered Edition for this long, which finally is paying off. May 25, 2018 will see the release of Dark Souls: Remastered on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The appeal for the original title hasn't faded a little in past seven years.

Dark Souls: Remastered New Gameplay

Many revelatory action RPG came and go, Dark Souls II and Dark Souls III were released, Sony released PlayStation 4 console but still, we very much needed Dark Souls: Remastered. Bandai Namco seriously deserves some praise to bring back tons of fans' dreams into life by working on it. Fans worldwide are just not waiting for a full remake treatment but need added content and improvements on original title.

As a courtesy of PlayStation Underground, we have exclusive gameplay footage from world of Dark Souls: Remastered in 4K!




The exclusive gameplay showed above is captured in 4k resolution and 60 FPS as a preview of how things are going to be in Remastered Edition.

Getting back at it with protagonist Chosen Undead is like a ride back memory lane exploring open world of Lordran around you as you cautiously take your steps behind a shield. Veteran players had also taken time adjusting to the gameplay at start. If you were a skilled player of your time then figuring out playing part once again with Dark Souls: Remastered will be no problem for you. Your undead adversaries will fall before you as you constantly make progress.

World of Dark Souls

Players who have been through Bloodborne and Dark Souls III know how it is around with a mob on your tail. In comparison to that, original Dark Souls can be pretty quiet and lonely. Well, don't just get depressed just yet. Plenty of booby traps and sudden ambush attacks every now and then will keep things exciting for you. That's right. All the items and enemies are right there for you. So, keep your eyes open to protect your hide from those sneaky undead residents.

A fine aspect is of course the soundtrack, which is out there blending perfectly with the environment yet it's almost non-existent. Your 4K-experience will be intensified if you just put a pair of headphones on. It will make boss killing moment or facing opponents like Black Knights or giant rats as real as it can get. Once you play the game, you will realize that they have done more changes and tweaks than a few visual upgrades.

Another great thing about Dark Souls: Remastered is that now it allows more players to join in. Originally, four-player were allowed to take part in their quest but six-players are accessible for multiplayer. Try imagining six friends who enjoys Dark Souls with somewhat same level of intensity in a same-room because, it is also coming to Switch.

Prepare Not to Die

Aside from playing at a 30 FPS rate and a 720p handheld mode, we believe it has great potential considering an exciting six person multiplayer mode. This could literally give the title an overwhelming reception from Switch owners and led to Remastered Editions of Dark Souls sequels. Although, TV mode offers you a 1080p display, having six television sets on a same room is very unlikely to happen.

Dark Souls was originally released for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 by developer From Software and publisher Bandai Namco back in 2011. It has a notorious reputation for being ruthlessly difficult among fans but the sooner you will get a grip at what is going on and what you want to do, you will pass through pretty easily. Hold onto it and don't just leave the battlefield at first sign of trouble.

Doom 4K Update

Pretty sure whether you are just an average first person shooter fan or a Doom lover, you would definitely appreciate the sadistic enjoyment of slaying demons on Mars. We had to give it to developer id Software to team up with publisher Bethesda Softworks to rejuvenate the fan-favorite Doom series with 2016's release of the same name. With their regular series of updates, they are keeping the game fresh and the newest update should make console fans happy because Doom will now support 4K!

Yes, that's right.

The newest update dated for March 29, heading towards the game will allow people to enjoy 4K resolution on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. This is only fitting that Doom is finally adding cutting-edge graphics display to their fast-paced shooting title.

Those BFG blasts you shoot will be felt like never before and so the fun of slicing chainsaw through your enemy heads will be uncomfortably satisfying. The 4K resolution patch is only exclusive for the above mentioned platforms as the other consoles do not support higher caliber of graphics superiority like them.

State of Decay 2 Collector’s Edition is a showcase of gory stuffs, perfectly reminiscent to a post-apocalyptic theme that is the core of the series. It includes an exclusive SteelBook case, a human brain-shaped stand for the SteelBook case, a full-latex zombie mask, a 4GB USB drive that is shaped like a severed thumb and a game patch. For $69.99 only, you will get all the goodies shown above except for a copy of the game.

Since the game is relatively cheap than any other AAA titles in the market, spending $69.99 can make you a proud owner of all the undead themed cool merchandise that comes with the State of Decay 2 Collector’s Edition. However, you will still lack the base game to play though. On that case, you will either have to purchase State of Decay 2 Standard Edition or Ultimate Edition to enjoy the game. You can also pre-order it from your nearest retailer.

RELATED: State of Decay 2 Won't Have Micro-Transactions

You may already know that you can purchase State of Decay 2 Standard Edition only for $29.99 or can get the Ultimate Edition of the game for just $49.99 and the latter one is a better choice. Because, it will grant you four day early access to the game and State of Decay: Year-One Survival Edition for console.

State of Decay 2 Won't Have Micro-Transactions

We live in such an age of loot-boxes and in-game purchases now that a new game from a major publisher that doesn't include the concept of micro-transactions of any sort is hard to believe. If the title happens to be one of the most-anticipated upcoming releases then it is literally unbelievable for the players. Following Sony’s God of War taking such initiative, developer Undead Labs and publisher Microsoft Studios decided to do the same with State of Decay 2.

Whereas micro-transactions and loot boxes are a ploy to pull more money from the consumers aside from the purchase price they already paid and every other studio is pretty fond of this practice, Undead Labs took a bold move by strictly standing on the opposite way of this road. Though we don't have a direct quote but studio head of developer, Jeff Strain assures that there won't be any micro-transactions in their game.

RELATED: Reddit Bashed EA Over Battlefront II Loot Boxes

Despite their initial stand against the industry trend, when it was revealed that the Standard Edition of State of Decay 2 will cost you only $29.99, fans started speculating what could be the reason for this considerably low cost and the studio had to re-assure them that they are sticking to their earlier decision about loot boxes. This theory comes from the fact that the original State of Decay had a loot box "Prepper's Pack" consists of a gun, a melee weapon and an SUV available for $0.99.

RELATED: State of Decay 2 Collector’s Edition Announced

When one of Undead Labs’ live streams was overwhelmed with comments asking for their plan to compensate the low-cost, the developers had to come clean about it. Although micro-transactions and loot boxes are completely off the table for State of Decay 2, there will be some paid DLC contents just like every other games does for the players to enjoy. If you are wondering what about the cosmetic items, then probably that also falls into the same category.

The developers do recognize that by making their game available on the market for only $29.99 was a huge risk but sinking into the infamous micro-transaction trend would be even worse for long-run. Apparently, they wanted to create a dedicated community for the game so that they all support the title and buys the upcoming expansions as well. Another reason that probably made them cautious was about the idea was the major loot box controversy of Star Wars Battlefront II from last year.

The game is already on a 2.5D display, which is nearly 3D but all the characters of the series look like some sick animated piece picked up straight from the TV show. Dragon Ball FighterZ is now getting rendered in native 4K and developers are making sure that as the game progresses, it keeps the frame-rate stable at all times. That means those drawings will load smoothly even on 1080p screen display.

If you think that these image augmentations may interrupt the gameplay anyhow as it has to maintain a steady frame-rate, then you are wrong. Instead, this constant frame-rate flow will let you execute your next counter or the perfect combos on your opponent at the right time. So, the gameplay experience is obviously having some impact but they are all positives. Don't they? Other than that, the improved graphics increases your satisfaction of a battle even more.

Because Dragon Ball FighterZ is uses cell-shading rendering, the development team supersampled the 4K resolution and high-quality anti-aliasing aspects of the game. In higher resolution, the fight still needs to look good and that needs extra care for the enhancement process. The dynamic resolution on Xbox One X was such a help to maintain the balance of both graphical polished look and that acute frame-rate.

The display settings of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt now adds two new visual options for the players to choose from. There is a 4K Mode and a Performance Mode. People can either play the game with 60 frames per second or just in a constant 4K resolution if they will. Despite any mentions from the developers in the patch notes, the HDR support aspect will apply for Xbox One S consoles as well.

According to CD Projekt Red, if you are to choose the 4K Mode, you can experience the high definition of 4K resolution at a regular 30 FPS. If excellent visual is your top priority then you can certainly go with this one and the consistency of the frame rates remains even in the middle of an ongoing battle. The Performance Mode however lets you play at 60 FPS and the resolution will be scaled down to somewhere between 1080p to 4K, so that you can have that frame rate at all times.

The texture of the surrounding environment of the game and the shadows will look much more realistic and better in quality. Since combat is an inseparable part of any action game out there, we prefer the Performance Mode over 4K Mode which is stuck on a constant 30 FPS.

PUBG Having Issues on Xbox One

Currently, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is the most played and talked about game of the industry that has surely made a name for it by selling more than 25 million copies and topping Dota 2’s record for having the most amount of players online simultaneously on Steam. A multiplayer online battle royale, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is currently in early access stage on Steam and within next week the 1.0 version will be out for PC.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Having Issues on Xbox One

Given the fact that this one is the first game of developer PUBG Corporation, they did a pretty impressive job and Microsoft Studios have stuck a major deal to have the game exclusively on their consoles, which is a very calculated smart move. Games tend to have found with new issues with their graphics and performance once they are released on PC and by the looks of the games' current status, a playable version of the game on any console seems like a far-fetched idea.

RELATED: PUBG Will Be Changed in China

Microsoft’s Game Preview program has recently launches PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and if you play the game on Xbox One X which has a 4K support, you will notice the visual superiority of PUBG on a console than a mid-range PC. However, if you have already experienced Xbox One X version of Call of Duty: World War II then you will realize how less polished the game is in terms of graphical textures compared to other games on the same console.

At the very start of each match, you can see the slothful frame rates that slowly escalates the more you advance forward and it won't take much time for anyone to note that the game is not constant at any given frame rate. Since Xbox One X is the most advanced console in the market that offers the best graphical enhancement, that kind of inconsistency is really bothering for any players in general. The frame rate shift is more obvious if you switch from an Xbox One to Xbox One X.

If you let the downside of the console version of PUBG slide, then it's still pretty fun game considering this one retains almost every aspects of the game that made it a fun-play in the first place. So, if you can let pass the expectation you had for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on Xbox One or Xbox One X, you can still enjoy it anyway.

Assassin’s Creed Origins Out Now

One of Ubisoft's most popular and bankable franchise Assassin’s Creed releases its tenth main title Assassin’s Creed Origins and today sees the release of this action-adventure saga. You will play the game as the protagonist and the very first assassin of their sacred brotherhood named Bayek, who decided to take up the mantle of a protector of Egypt and the predecessor of the long heritage this secret band of warriors will follow.

Assassin’s Creed Origins Out Now

Assassin’s Creed Origins is set in a crucial time of Ancient Egypt’s history, when Cleopatra and her brother Ptolemy were in a struggle for power and it was gradually reaching towards a bitter end. Unfortunately, the peril doesn't end here. The malevolent Order of the Ancients was trying to manipulate the situation from behind the curtains and a Roman army was just awaiting the borders of the country.

Your assassin Bayek can develop his skill tree to become a Hunter, Seer or a Warrior, with all of them leading into different skill sets. Using poison, tame wild animals and throwing firebombs are what a Seer would do. If you want him to become a fearsome warrior, let him develop his range of melee attacks. And if you want to shoot arrows and distract your enemies with your pet eagle, like we saw in the cinematic trailer, then you take him to the path of a Hunter.

Now, Bayek will have to intervene into the middle and you will be exploring Ancient Egypt along with him on his quest for righteousness. Though many are calling Assassin’s Creed Origins a reboot and some are calling it a soft-reboot but one thing is certain, which is that, it really is a new starting point for sure.

The more you play and master yourself with your assassin Bayek, your level and ability points will gradually increase. One thing that Assassin’s Creed Origins has no shortage of is that of their many side-missions, story quests and frequent combat situations that will develop Bayek into the legendary fighter he is known as. The game will make you explore the exotic location of Egypt like the Mediterranean rough waters, pyramids of Giza and giant temple at Memphis throughout the desert path.

One very appreciative aspect of the enjoyable side missions and quests are that you can complete them whenever you want and however you please. You have absolute freedom in doing so. In the mean time, you can master your assassin into a strong warrior to take on any upcoming challenge that is thrown at him.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is already out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to play and enjoy the ancient world of the brotherhood that was formed to protect the rights of the oppressed. The game will be seeing its Xbox One X release on November 7. With everything it offers and the improved gameplay it displayed, Assassin’s Creed Origins will truly embrace the spirit of Action RPG.

Assassin’s Creed Origins Launch Trailer

The tenth major title of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed Origins is about to be launched within a very few days and everyone is just waiting to jump onto the game as soon as it comes out. Ubisoft decided to delight the eagerly waiting fans with a little treat and so they dropped the launch trailer for the game to give us some more visual spectacle as well as more insight into the game.

Assassin’s Creed Origins: Launch Trailer | Legend of the Assassin

We want to talk about what the Assassin’s Creed Origins launch trailer is all about but be sure to check out the trailer titled "Legend of The Assassin" below before that.




By now, almost all of us know that the brotherhood of Assassin’s Creed was originated in ancient Egypt and Bayek is the first in the line of warriors who would start this crusade against the system all by himself. Bayek was simply a revolutionary who wanted to become the aid of the oppressed against the wicked and corrupt folks of that time on Egypt and thus, his mission soon turned him into a renowned assassin.

Since, Assassin’s Creed Origins is a prequel or a soft-reboot rather than a sequel like any other previous games of the series, the gameplay and the setting might seem a little bit different at times. Origins offer you a more expanded open-world in-game environment and there is a skill tree to crank up your abilities to inflict more damage and hit points as you progress. Lots of the element that you will find here are actually how the legends of their Brotherhood grew over time.

As we said earlier, the trailer offers more sneak peak to the game's action and story that you will eventually unfold playing it and provide you a clear idea of how the Assassin Brotherhood came to form in the first place. Some of the action-packed cut-scenes from the game also made it to the trailer as well. Although it would not be like any of the previous Assassin's Creed games but Origins do feature the series' trademark parkour-like movements during the fights.

Releasing worldwide on October 27, Assassin’s Creed Origins will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game will also see its Xbox One X debut on November 7 with 4K displays to experience enhanced high-definition environments. To embrace the full-action of the RPG, the game actually lets you explore the whole country of Egypt.
