Sea of Thieves: Shrouded Spoils Release Date

Sea of Thieves is getting their next major expansion update Shrouded Spoils for free on November 28.

Although action-adventure game Sea of Thieves from Rare and Microsoft Studios was exclusive to PC and Xbox One, it didn't excite them for too long but kept everyone engaged anyway. This was possible because the developers kept adding more content to the game.

So far, three expansion packs are released, which added gameplay mechanics for you to access even today and was absolutely free. Their next and fourth free major content update Shrouded Spoils will focus more on re-invigorate the game when it will come out on November 28.

Looks like the pirates at the sea are getting a treasure trove as new content and just like always, Rare Studios worked on stuff the community has been asking about and more improvements as well. Don't forget to look for new riches and spoils when it drops.

New mechanism of fog can arrive at any time and conceal all sorts of dangers at land and sea, leaving you exposed to them. Six new skeleton forts are included for players to take on and that just makes the total number of them to nine.

You have faced the Kraken and Megalodon before, right? Guess what? They are back again and now aside from terrorizing the sea and wrecking your ship like a twig, they decided to be generous enough to drop loots for you. Sounds crazy, right?

Kraken has been designed to spawn more frequently and will prove to be tougher than before to give you an epic boss battle. He has learned a nasty move called the Kraken slap but downing each of its tentacles will reward the crew. Meg on the other hand has gotten some cosmetic makeover.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Leaked Before Launch

Only two weeks before the release, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is leaked online and fans can't stand the spoilers!

Although crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from developer Bandai Namco Studios and publisher Nintendo is still more than a week away from release worldwide on December 7, it's already out online ahead of the launch.

Pirates have somehow gotten their hands on an early copy which they ripped and uploaded online, revealing potential spoilers online for the most hotly anticipated Nintendo Switch title of upcoming holiday season of this year.

A latest release from the Super Smash Bros. series, the title is now Switch's biggest pirated game ever despite all of the effort Nintendo took to hype it up over the months and keeping everything related to the game tightly wrapped.

Though the company is taking actions by issuing takedown notices to various YouTubers who has been uploading videos or music clips from the game, fans are highly concerned over the fact that the spoiling details are still out there.

The community is expressing their utter disgust and outrage on Discord, Reddit, Twitter and other social media for anyone who are about to ruin their experience of SSBU beforehand without any spoiler warnings in advance.

This is very important for the fans of this series as every piece of information they need to know about the game should be coming directly from game director Masahiro Sakurai or Nintendo. Some fans even believe that they shouldn't even know anything at all, which is quite a stretch to be honest.

Of course many of the game details like the character roster and stages are something players ought to know at early point because they are great selling points but many elements of the title were still left for the fans to uncover when the game releases.

The pirates didn't stop at revealing stuffs like how and when to unlock certain playable characters or the music tracks; they even went far ahead by leaking many details about the World of Light Adventure mode, something worth a story for SSBU.

Report says that, the pirated version of the game first showed up on a popular Switch piracy community WarezNX and even though the group's administrator attempted to stop the leak by banning all lower level users from server but couldn't stop the inevitable.

Parties involved in this piracy might have gotten their hands on an early copy from YouTubers or any journalists reviewing the game, before they leaked it online. Leaking of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate prior release is no mere accident and we guess people at WarezNX may actually know how that happened.

Red Dead Online Battle Royale Revealed

Leave your guns behind and pick up some bows or knives to enter Red Dead Online battle royale arena!

It's been over a month that developer/publisher Rockstar Games released their most anticipated title of the year, Red Dead Redemption 2 that led to huge sales and stellar reviews. The online multiplayer mode, Red Dead Online also started today for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Earlier, there was buzz of the multiplayer to feature a battle royale-like mode but many has laughed it off because almost every game out there these days have a mode like that but now there is more evidence on social media to back that rumor up.

Red Dead Online Battle Royale Revealed

RELATED: Red Dead Online Announced

Recently, a list of activities from RDO has been posted on Twitter by illogical Mods ahead of the beta's launch that supports the theory of battle royale.



RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 Early Access Content

The list reveals the inclusion of a few jobs, races and the most talked about battle royale mode. Even though Rockstar is joining the trend like many others, they are keeping their word of not being a "copycat" unlike every other big title from the genre.

Make It Count pits up to 32 players on a shrinking area for a last man standing confrontation but this is not your typical battle royale mode where you engage in a shootout. Instead of any six shooters, you are only armed with bows or knives as weapons.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Trailer

Depending on where you stand at the moment, you can have either one of them to duke it out with fellow outlaws. For instance, you will end up with the bow if you are playing in Saint Denis Plantation and Tall Trees. Stillwater Creek and Strawberry hands you throwing knives.

A cowboy conflict is often sorted out with some shootout but throwing bows and knives in exchange for guns was a good twist though. Restricting players to silent weapons like these put more emphasis on stealth and thus, creates more tension.

The developers also created a few bounty jobs, where you interact with a character named Horley and take tasks like hunting down outlaws or avenge the death of a man for his widow. He will also introduce you to horse thief Clay Davies to learn bits of rustling trade.

Players can also engage in various activities the massive map of single player campaign with friends or just go solo. If you miss shootout then there will be a lot of scopes for that regarding battles over territories. Otherwise, what's the point of including the vast amount of weapons in the game?

RELATED: Red Dead Online Beta Begins Tomorrow

May be it is too early to say this but Red Dead Online make a very good move by taking a more stealthy approach to battle royale, which many of the games are not following these days at all. The best part is that, it completely removes any issue that may rise with weapon balance problems.

However, Rockstar may eventually add the traditional battle royale gameplay mechanics in future though. Red Dead Redemption 2 is only rolling out its online multiplayer in beta form but it will take some more time for all players to join the full experience it has to offer.

Red Dead Redemption 2: Undead Nightmare Teased?

Evidence is found within Red Dead Redemption 2 that clearly suggests for a second Undead Nightmare DLC.

The original Red Dead Redemption had a standalone expansion pack titled Undead Nightmare that added a zombie horror-themed single-player campaign, multiplayer modes and cosmetics. Players really loved this idea of an alternate reality take on the game.

When Red Dead Redemption 2 launched a month ago as a prequel to the Western-themed action-adventure title from 2010, everyone wondered to themselves that whether or not developer/publisher Rockstar Games will release the DLC campaign for RDR2.

RELATED: Red Dead Online Battle Royale Revealed

Recently, evidence were found and shared on social media that suggests a second Undead Nightmare DLC on its way. Reddit user BrodytheBeast20 found a creepy Easter egg in a well near Tall Trees that is a direct nod to the acclaimed horror experience.

Although many players are already done with the story campaign and jumped into multiplayer mode Red Dead Online, we would like to warn you that if you haven't finished the game and want to stay away from any spoilers, you should hold your horses here.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2.

Awright, just like the previous title, RDR2 features a playable epilogue where a substitute main character takes place of the protagonist and the control is switched. The game shifts control from Arthur Morgan to John Marston and taking him down to a well in Tall Trees will lead you to the following.



RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Videos Deleted and Restored by YouTube

This hint is more than obvious and a bit on the nose but you can still see it in the dark deep down the well if you light it up with a lantern. Moving the camera angle will show a skeletal-face of Marston, which clearly resembles to the promotional image of the Undead Nightmare DLC.

Now it could either be a simple nod to the original campaign or it could simply foreshadowing his tragic ending after he put up a valiant last stand at the end of the Red Dead Redemption. If this is nothing but a reference to the past, then there is not much to be excited for.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Hits 17 Million Sales

Undead Nightmare was a lengthy playthrough set in the original map of RDR creating a different world with familiar characters. The prequel may follow the same formula to cook up a zombie thriller starring John Marston as playable hero once again.

Aside from an engaging storyline and gameplay, Red Dead Redemption 2 is full of Easter eggs here and there. If one of them turns out to be a tease for an upcoming expansion, it would really be great and would be a better plan than the ones you keep hearing from Dutch.

Red Dead Online Beta Begins Tomorrow

Early access to Red Dead Redemption 2 multiplayer mode Red Dead Online Beta begins tomorrow, November 27.

Right after Western action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 from developer/publisher Rockstar Games is released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26, people might have forgotten that there is a real world out there and got lost into the open world of the game.

Now that many have finished playing the main game, players are now waiting for its online multiplayer mode, Red Dead Online. Rockstar has announced to launch the beta on November 27, 5:30 AM PT and only will open up to the owners of RDR2 Ultimate Edition.

Much like GTA Online, players can create and customize their own characters and use the full map of RDR2. You can go solo or play the mode with up to seven other players to join a posse that goes out for hunting and fishing together.

Some of the camp system from the main game will be available in the mode and you are allowed to attack rival gangs in their hideouts or fight other players. There are even rumors of including some kind of battle royale mode but that has yet to be confirmed.

Initially Rockstar Games revealed only bits of details about the mode ahead of its release that both casual and seasoned players can enjoy regardless. In the mean time, it would be nice seeing the studio getting rid of the bugs and glitches to make Red Dead Redemption 2 as smooth as possible.

With constant updates and adjustments, the experience of multiplayer through Red Dead Online has the potential to make the franchise an exceptional commercial success as it will continue to grow for the community over time.

Darksiders 3 Concept Art

Gunfire Games offers you to witness the concept art of Fury and the Seven Deadly Sins from Darksiders III.

From the very beginning, hack and slash action-adventure franchise of Darksiders did one thing constantly and that is creating a post-apocalyptic scenario in a modern world right. Whether it is the hellish creatures, surrounding environments or weaponry, they just set things as it should.

So, as developer Gunfire Games and publisher THQ Nordic slowly march towards the launch of Darksiders III, the latest release from the series, we got our hands on a series of concept art pieces that helped the studio translate apocalypse into the game from art.

The biggest spin the second sequel took is that they introduced a female protagonist, Fury as the third horseman of the Apocalypse. She is a vengeful mage who is unlike her brothers War or Death and has a lot to offer when she is on the lead.

Also, the game features a near-endless group of enemies that would come across player's path as they stomp though to encounter The Seven Deadly Sins in the endgame. As the story continues further, design inspiration from previous Darksiders game will not go unnoticed to keen eyes.

Alien: Blackout May be Next Alien Game

20th Century Fox trademarks the name "Alien: Blackout" for a possible upcoming video game title in the making.

After the science fiction horror franchise of Aliens began its journey back in 1979, it saw many sequel movies, crossovers with Predator film series, and most frequently adapted into comic-books by Dark Horse Comics publications and video game media for a several decades now.

It stepped into the world of video games in 1982 as maze game based on the original movie and got a dozen of releases on different platforms. Some recent developments from 20th Century Fox studio suggest that we are in for a new Alien game soon.

RELATED: FoxNext to Develop New Alien Video Game

The title Alien: Blackout as recently been trademarked by Fox on the World Intellectual Property Organization website, where it clearly states to be a video game property and definitely not an upcoming movie or TV show.

Back in January, it was revealed that FoxNext Games is about to work on a new AAA-Alien shooter title for PC and consoles in association with Cold Iron Studios, which will deliver a total action-packed experience full of Xenomorphs to all of the fans.

RELATED: Borderlands 2 VR Comes to PlayStation

Also, there are speculations that very soon the game could even be announced at The Game Awards 2018. This rumor is powered by a recent photo posted by video game legend Hideo Kojima on Twitter during his tour at the 20th Century Fox office and the official Twitter account for TGA responds to it as well.



RELATED: Kojima Teasing Another Death Stranding Trailer?

Another interesting part is that The Game Awards has been marketing this year's event with a tagline "Worlds Will Change" right next to a "W" logo. Some enthusiastic fans over the internet suggest this to be the Weyland-Yutani Corporation logo from Alien universe.

The similarities between the logo could be purely coincidental but it seems highly suspicious when the Twitter handle for The Game Awards responds to Kojima with their "Worlds Will Change" slogan in a cryptic manner of reply.



RELATED: Devil May Cry Animated Series Confirmed

The closest and the most recent release from the series are Aliens: Colonial Marines and Alien: Isolation. The former took place right after the events of James Cameron's Aliens movie from 1986, which was gravely bashed by fans for a very poor AI as a result of a typo in code.

The latter came out after a year later as a first-person-shooter survival horror game from developer Creative Assembly and publisher Sega, which somehow managed to encapsulate the suspense and claustrophobic settings of the franchise right.

RELATED: Aliens: Colonial Marines' Lame AI Caused by Typo

Aside from the recently title, we do not know any other news or information about the story of the game or whatsoever. However, now that 20th Century Fox has secured the trademark for them, we hope to hear more about the game soon and probably on December 6, at The Game Awards 2018.

If Hideo Kojima is really involved in the Alien: Blackout project, then there is a chance that the series may find redemption into the video game media after so many botched attempt to bring the Alien horde from the furthest corner of the galaxy to your preferred gaming platform.

OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Missed Sales Targets

In an investor Q&A, Starbreeze Publishing has revealed that sales figure for OVERKILL's The Walking Dead is lower than expected.

Even though fans were eagerly waiting and had a wave of hype going for it, first-person shooter OVERKILL's The Walking Dead from developer Overkill Software and publisher Starbreeze Publishing is seeing disappointing number of sales initially.

After the PC edition of the game is launched earlier this month on November 8, players were not seem to be very interested to keep up with the title anymore and CFO of Starbreeze then reveals that the initial sales of OTWD is lower than what they originally expected.

RELATED: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Gameplay Revealed

In their recent sales reviewing Q&A, the publisher points out that the title missed the initial forecasted sales mark a week after its launch. PC version is doing poorly in the market because of lack of content as well as quality to be exact.

The title is heavily bashed on review-aggregation site Metacritic and many popular gaming sites for design issues, lame AI and connection problems, which is having an overall negative impact on the sales among other reasons.

RELATED: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Delayed for Consoles

Starbreeze didn't reveal the exact number of games sold but they already are in development of new content for Season 2, coming soon. Of course, it is too early to predict whether the game is a success or a failure, the studio believes OTWD is off to a good start.

In this desperate time of financial challenges, the publisher is now focusing on lowering their cost of business operations to save up a considerable amount to run things around. An internal review is ongoing to process that but no specifics were given on that yet.

RELATED: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Introduces Heather

Also, the delay of the release for console versions of the game means, the $10 million licensing fee Starbreeze was about to receive from 505 Games this quarter to bring the title to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is delayed to February.

The 2019 console release can turn the financial balance to a slightly favorable position but despite all of the issues mentioned above, the developers and publishers are still okay with releasing the game in its current state only shows that how much they actually care for the players or the game itself.

RELATED: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Introduces Grant

Given their current base of concurrent players, the studio should improve the gameplay framework and performance for a better experience if they really want to follow Games as a Service concept for the foreseeable future. Or perhaps they should go for a better monetization model that works.

Although many were comparing the co-op shooter to another survival horror game Left 4 Dead from the same genre, OVERKILL's The Walking Dead is probably not even worth the same standard of a title based on The Walking Dead franchise at all.

In overall, the mastermind behind many events, the character of Conrad "Redmond" Paulson is portrayed in a classic way. An extended vibe of that can be felt on Celia's home base and on other key part of the game to keep up the consistency in music influence.

You may notice the use of modern rock- influenced music in action sequences to maintain a dynamic and textural contrast. Whatever gap there was between classical music and rock, were overlapped with additional sound effects.

Spotting music and sound effects during the graphic novel segments of the game was one of the technical parts of the game where the pacing was to be short ad accurately timed to the comic panels as a player controls the frames.

The creative team of audio department carefully picked up sound effects to either include them in places where they saw it fitting or to completely leave them out if not that necessary. All these efforts were to visually portray the storytelling format of the comic-books.

In terms of designing background art, Thief of Thieves: Season One offered a lot of freedom and opportunity for the art team to think outside the box. This is the sole reason why the illustrations used in the game gives you a distinct vibe than many others.

In favor of using a heavy ink style to carve up every backdrop, character, object and fine details, the team ditched texture maps and result came out in vibrant art pieces. The biggest plus side of this move was that each level would look different and unique.
