However, Ubisoft were quick to make a move as soon as word got out and change that date to December 31, which is the last day of 2020. AssassinsCrypt has posted it on Facebook to let everyone see aside from posting on Reddit.

When it comes to combat, Sakai can either fight like an honorable samurai who would directly confront his enemies or becomes a Ghost to strike fear into the hearts of Mongol invaders and decimate them with ruthless efficiency.

Aside from scoring precised one-shot kills, you can also rely on parrying sometimes or use smoke bombs to distract enemies. Use combat skills or implement stealth to gain an upper hand when going against a group of adversaries.

Armor customization has an emphasis on your playstyle as well since certain attire will give you advantages on varying degrees. Collecting more charms and technique points are a way to upgrade skills of a samurai into a legendary Ghost.

Tsushima seems a lot like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice in comparison and its gameplay seems inspired from Assassin's Creed series. However, Sucker Punch's latest IP doesn't fail to shine when it comes to aesthetic and graphical prowess.

Ghost of Tsushima is the last PlayStation 4-exclusive to release for current generation of Sony consoles. At this point, developers refuse to disclose whether they will be launching a PlayStation 5 version of the game anytime soon.

However, there is another rumor of a Resident Evil 4 Remake being in works by a new studio, M-Two with a set release window of 2022. If that is true, Capcom is almost certainly aiming for releasing Resident Evil titles on annual basis.

IllFonic was heavily inspired by '87 original Predator movie while working on Hunting Grounds and bringing back Arnold in one of his most iconic role is a truly wholesome experience for entire dev team as well as player community.

First free update is set to release on May 26, which will revive Dutch's story and integrate into in-game universe. Anyone who owns base game can learn where Dutch has been for all these years and hear it in voice tapes as you progress.

A paid DLC will follow on same day that gives you playable version of Dutch, alongside his early access to his QR5 "Hammerhead" Rifle and knife. All players will receive these weapons later in June for free though another monthly update.

Dutch has aged up over time and getting his image right by working with Arnold himself is no child's play. Since Schwarzenegger has never appeared in any related media franchise since 1987, these add-ons will be canon in Predator universe.

Batman: Court of the Owls game Rumored to Be Revealed Soon

WB Montréal could finally be revealing Batman: Court of the Owls game this week at Summer Game Fest.

Rumor mill for a new Batman game has been running for some time since December 2018 and even Batman: Arkham Origins developer WB Games Montréal started teasing on annual Batman Day 2019, adding further fuel to flame.

According to an early report, a reveal was all set for E3 2020 event which was cancelled due to Coronavirus outbreak and now an alleged leak on Reddit by user BloomMilk claims for an upcoming announcement of new Batman game.

This leak apparently originated from 4chan imageboard and therefore, should be taken with a grain of salt. This leaker claims that WB Montréal will be revealing their long-awaited Batman game at Summer Game Fest event on May 12, 2020.

When a Twitter user asked video game industry influencer Geoff Keighley about possibility of a Batman game reveal event recently, he simply advises to manage expectations without directly confirming or denying anything at all.

Keighley being coy about what to expect from Summer Game Fest, assures that the game will be "cool and fun".

Latest source of leak also claims that there will be general story reboot without "Arkham" in title, yet character looks and gameplay mechanics are to remain similar, which sounds a lot like previous report of Batman: Arkham series reboot.

Players will be exploring to a massive open-world Gotham City, exclusively on next-gen console systems and PC. Renowned voice actor Mark Hamill will not be reprising his iconic role as The Joker, which is a huge let down for series fans.

Since there are no way to verify credibility for any of these sources, players can simply wait for Geoff Keighley to officially unveil highly anticipated reboot of acclaimed Arkham series at Summer Game Fest showcase on this Tuesday.

WB Games Montréal teased working on a Batman game set within Arkhamverse and is loosely based on 2011 DC Comics storyline Batman: Court of Owls several times already, showing logos of various criminal factions of Gotham.
