Overcooked Free on Epic Games Store Now! Again!

Once again, Epic Games Store is giving away acclaimed cooking simulator Overcooked for free on this week's giveaway.

Epic Store is giving away PC version of chaotic cooking simulation game Overcooked instead of Ark: Survival Evolved, which you can easily claim to own forever with a free account anytime before June 11, 8:00 AM PT/10:00 AM EDT.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Won't Have Any DLC

Game producer Peter Fabiano confirms no future add-ons or DLC updates for Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Though a series of successful modern-day remakes, developer/publisher Capcom has managed to reignite hype and receive acclaim for Resident Evil survivor horror series, which is concluded with recent release of Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Despite its bright sides, a faction of players believed RE3 Remake is relatively short for its AAA-price tag and hoping for some future DLC, a notion that has been shot down by game producer Peter Fabiano who called it a finished project.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 Will Be Cross-Gen Title

In an interview with Silicon Era, producer Peter Fabiano was asked whether they are working on any tweaks or updates for RE3 and his straight answer of Resident Evil 3 being a finished product means there will be no future DLC.

Most people were just happy to see Jill Valentine return and everything else Capcom offered in RE3, except for old players who thought this definitive remake lacks content in terms of Clock Tower, Grave Digger and more that were cut out.

Resident Evil 3 Remake story campaign mode was very short and there was not enough to explore. RE3 came bundled with Resident Evil: Resistance for sure but these two halves still didn't offer a complete experience for many.

Majority of old-school fans weren't actually excited to find out that RE3 Remake will not feature multiple endings and iconic Mercenaries mode from 1999 original game, which was replaced by asymmetrical multiplayer mode Resistance.

RELATED: Capcom May be Teasing Next Resident Evil Game for 2021

Fabiano leaves no vagueness in his answer when he shut down any possibility of add-ons or DLC for Resident Evil 3. However, Capcom can always change their plan in future and eventually come up with something new to please their fans.

Also, his comment did not mean that Resident Evil: Resistance will not be receiving further DLC updates since it's an ongoing game. Capcom recently added new mastermind character Nicholai Ginovaef from RE3 for Resistance last month.

RELATED: Resident Evil 4 Remake Reportedly in Works

A large part of Resident Evil community who purchased RE3 Remake on launch don't really care for Resistance and therefore, lack of support for core game is heavily disappointing considering its full price and overwhelming fan reception.

With no hopes for DLC content to improve story mode of Resident Evil 3 Remake, players can now resort to finding more hidden Easter Eggs, do speedrunning, trying different difficulty settings and modding to squeeze out more from it.

Leaked source also states that original RDR will be a complete remake on an improved RAGE engine used for Red Dead Redemption 2. There will be few advanced mechanics for fishing and hunting with inclusion of a few new missions.

Rockstar can also sneak in some reference of protagonist Arthur Morgan by simply mentioning his name in remake of Red Dead Redemption since it is a sequel to RDR2 after all and at this point, his presence is certain in prequel game.

RELATED: Crackdown 2 Developers Working on New Rockstar Game

Voice actors from 2010 release of RDR are brought back, especially Rob Wiethoff, who voiced for John Marston. Rockstar Games is reportedly working on versions for PC as well as next-gen console PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

Rockstar may already be working on a Mexico expansion for Red Dead Online to honor RDR Remake. Instead of a 4K remaster, a full remake was planned that includes Undead Nightmare and was developed by Rockstar India.

Resident Evil 8 Will Be Cross-Gen Title

Capcom is likely to release Resident Evil 8 as a cross-gen title next year, according to leaker AestheticGamer.

Within months after developer/publisher Capcom successfully launching 2017 survival horror game Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, rumors of development for its follow-up sequel title started surfacing online from various sources.

Capcom recently revealed their financial report for current fiscal year, which indicates that Resident Evil 8 will be a cross-gen game awaiting on early 2021, a possibility that is further bolstered by a renowned industry leaker.

Often revealing leaks regarding Resident Evil video game series on Twitter, renowned leaker AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem is currently speculating for RE8 to launch anytime between late January and March 2021 schedule.

Although no official confirmation has been given by Capcom about potential protagonist, enemy details or even a release window for Resident Evil 8 yet, some details were leaked earlier including a rumored title, "Village".

While discussing for a potential date for new Silent Hill game reveal on August, AestheticGamer also talked about Resident Evil 8 being a cross-gen title currently awaiting showcase on June, most probably on PlayStation 5 reveal event.

Capcom previously revealed Resident Evil 3 Remake on a State of Play broadcast last year before getting leaked on PlayStation Network and therefore, Resident Evil 8 getting revealed on June 4 at a Sony event actually makes sense.

Dusk Golem claims to have received this information from people who has ties to studios that works closely with both Resident Evil 8 and Silent Hill projects but regardless of trusted source, people should take this with a grain of salt.

Capcom is apparently preparing to launch Resident Evil 8 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X next year. There have been reports of Resident Evil 4 Remake being developed by M-Two studio for 2022 release.

Call of Duty: Warzone Adds Duos Mode

Infinity Ward finally adds Duos mode for Call of Duty: Warzone alongside currently available game modes.

From initial period of its launch, players have been requesting developer Infinity Ward and Raven Software on social media and everywhere else online to add a duos mode for free-to-play battle royale game Call of Duty: Warzone.

Taking all that community feedback into account, Infinity Ward has finally made duos playlist available ahead of Season 4 update of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare so everyone can grab a wingman before heading to Verdansk map.

New Star Wars Game May be Revealed Next Week

EA Motive joins Twitter only to spark rumors of next Star Wars game online, which is likely to reveal next week.

After barely surviving loot box controversy back in 2017 for action shooter title Star Wars Battlefront II, developer Respawn Entertainment has saved face for publisher Electronic Arts with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order last year.

A sequel to Fallen Order has already been greenlit and recent Reddit threads full of teases from industry reporters hints that EA is very much likely to reveal their next Star Wars project sooner than you think, probably in June 2020.

In early March, an accidental leak at PlayStation Network revealed an image for Star Wars: Project Maverick, which was eventually deleted from PSN shortly afterwards and Electronic Arts neither confirmed nor denied about the game.

Many are speculating that Project Maverick will be showcased at upcoming PlayStation 5 reveal event on June 4, 2020. However, since Disney or EA has not officially confirmed anything yet, fans would be wise to take it with a grain of salt.

Battlefront II co-developer and Canada based studio EA Motive has joined Twitter lately and journalist Jason Schreier replied to their first Tweet, hinting that they are probably getting ready for a new game announcement soon.

Schreier also stated that Motive will soon be revealing a new Star Wars game in his follow-up Tweet. He linked to an article from February about a cancelled Battlefront spin-off game from last year that they are currently working on.

Those who are wondering what connection does actor Mel Gibson has with Top Gun: Maverick film should know that Gibson has starred in a 1994 film called Maverick, which is not only a clever callback but a better decoy as well.

Not much is known about Star Wars: Project Maverick aside from a PlayStation Network leaked image featuring an Imperial Star Destroyer and a few X-Wing fighters, possibly hinting at return of Star Wars: Rogue Squadron-style game.
