While this Western-themed action-adventure takes us to the Wild West, the developers were thoughtful enough to come up with a companion app for the game on Android and iOS devices to provide real-time interactive information to players.

Fortnite Cross-Play Beta Launched on PS4

Sony is finally bringing a beta cross-platform feature to PS4 today with free-to-play game Fortnite.

For long Sony had this weird arrogance of not allowing cross-platform play with Microsoft and Nintendo console owners. Even after being relentlessly ridiculed by gamers from all around the world about it, they had been maintaining their stubborn take on cross-play.

However, their policy has been reversed for good and today they announced of launching a Fortnite cross-platform beta. Now players owning a PlayStation 4 console can jump into adventure with fellow brethrens over Nintendo Switch, PC and Xbox One.

Back in June, when a version of Fortnite Battle Royale was released for Switch, players quickly discovered that their Epic Games account linked with PlayStation are being restricted to use, which has disappointed many and created a huge controversy overnight.

Although Sony initially apologized and promised to work on a solution but as time went by, it became very clear that they are not going to do anything about it. It even led to fall in their stock price while they took heat on social media.

However, they have finally come forward to take a step toward the future for better by allowing a beta for cross-platform play with Epic Games' massively popular multiplayer title across Android, iOS, Mac, PC, Switch and Xbox One.

For a time being, they will be testing technical aspects and will allow this feature to more select third party content eventually. For the sake of providing a better gaming experience for everyone, Sony is making a change to their policy and we believe people will appreciate it.

RELATED: Anthem Won't Have Cross-Play or DLC at Launch

On their official Blog, President and Global CEO of PlayStation, John Kodera have stated the following regarding their cross-play initiative.

We see the beta as an opportunity to conduct thorough testing that ensures cross-platform play is best on PlayStation, while being mindful about the user experience from both a technical and social perspective.

RELATED: Fallout 76 Have No Cross-Play, Because of Sony

This may very well turn the tide of things and a huge turning point for the industry as they gave up their economic concerns. They were even scorned by publisher studio Bethesda for their backward perspective over things a few months back.

However, we must not lose sight that how they specifically mentioned about introducing the concept to more third party content soon but only to the ones "selected", which leaves more room for disappointment in the foreseeable future.

Like always, theorist fans are coming up with different ideas and booming up online with suggestions regarding the mask. It looks similar to kitsune or fox in Japanese, which shape-shifts into diverse forms and has supernatural powers according to Japanese yokai folklore.

We are in no position of making any solid meaning of the subtle clue left by Epic Games but this marks to be the first time Japan has been referenced in the game so far. Players have already ventured through history of ancient Egypt, pirate anchors and wooden carriages so far. Possibly themes of Ancient Japan might be explored or there are even chances for a time-travel. At this point, we are just spit balling and waiting for three more days to know what is waiting ahead of us all.

Bethesda Sues Westworld Game as Fallout Shelter Ripoff

Bethesda files lawsuit against Warner Bros. over the release of Westworld mobile game, for ripping-off Fallout Shelter.

Last week, a mobile game is released which is based on the popular science fiction western TV series on HBO, Westworld. As soon as it hit Smartphone platform, it is hit by a lawsuit from popular video game publisher Bethesda Softworks for shamelessly ripping off their free-to-play simulation game Fallout Shelter from 2015. They have sued Warner Bros. and developer Behaviour Interactive over this matter, because the latter were involved when both of these titles were being developed.

As a part of post-apocalyptic role-playing Fallout game series, Fallout Shelter puts player into the role of a Vault Overseer, who supervises activities and building for the accommodation of remaining survivors in an irradiated wasteland. Despite being a free-to-play entry in the series, it has micro-transactions and random loot box features that made it a commercial hit, leading its way to other major platforms like Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One afterwards.

RELATED: The Elder Scrolls: Legends to Replace Developers

Canadian studio Behaviour Interactive previously teamed up with Bethesda during the development of Fallout Shelter and they were no stranger to working with licensed video game properties either. When Warner Bros. Entertainment hired them for the new Westworld mobile game, it came out as a copy of Bethesda's game in terms of designs and gameplay. So, wasting no further time, one publisher took it to the court against the company in charge of distribution for Westworld.

RELATED: Fallout 76 E3 Trailer

Accusing the developer for multiple misconducts as breach of contract, copyright violation and stealing trade secrets to others, Bethesda filed a legal suit on June 21. Warner Bros. was also alleged to have influenced the studio for taking this unethical step that lead the publisher some considerable amount of damage. Instead of being coy about it, Bethesda simply calls out the Westworld mobile game a "rip-off” because of the uncanny similarities of art, animations and gameplay.

RELATED: Fallout 76 To Stop PvP Bullying

They points out that there were some bugs in their early game, which they removed later but those same glitches are is still present on the game in question and that is a clear example of the codes being reused. While they are all worked up with newest entry from Fallout series, Fallout 76, Bethesda was just introduced their three-year-old Fallout Shelter on bigger platforms to explore possible financial potential and so they took it pretty seriously after learning of this plagiarism.

The Wolf Among Us Season 2 Delayed to 2019

Telltale Games is delaying The Wolf Among Us Season 2 to 2019 because of fundamental changes at studio.

Developer Telltale Games have done a splendid job adapting comic-book writer Bill Willingham (Day of Vengeance, Justice Society of America)'s Fables comic book series from DC Comics's Vertigo imprint into one of their epic fantasy interactive episodic graphic adventure. Following the immense success of Season 1, Telltale announced for The Wolf Among Us Season 2 back in July, 2017. It was scheduled to release on 2018 but unfortunately that date is pushed back to 2019 now.

Fans that were eagerly waiting for the latter half of 2018 to see Season 2 of the game probably are a little bit pissed when almost one year after the initial announcement they get to know this shocker! Clearly this should upset many players because we rarely had any follow-up news from the creator studio about its development and now, suddenly out of the blue we get to know that, we should wait another year. That kind of sucks!

RELATED: Telltale’s Walking Dead Collection Announced

Although Telltale have mentioned about the issue recently stating, this inconvenience is totally unintentional and is because of some essential changes since they announced the title last summer. While that doesn't seem like anything big but it can mean that there might be a change of gameplay which will be introduced this time. Plus, they said, the studio will invest this extra time in improving quality and experiment with this project. Does that make any sense to you now?

There is another fact that could possibly be the reason for this delay and it is, the studio laid off 25 percent of their workforce, which is a total of 90 employees. The company responsible for making critically acclaimed games like Game of Thrones, Minecraft and The Walking Dead, has decided to move forward with a smaller team to deliver a fewer but better quality video games in future. Whether or not this restructuring has helped them in their goal, it can be partially responsible for setbacks in their deadline.

This one comes with their weekly update 1.59 and possibly one of the weirdest modes ever. Although, you don't immediately become the only survivor of the match or just as he likes to balance everything, The Mad Titan does not wipe out half the participants upon finding the Gauntlet but does gets into a rage of destruction or players can do that with him.

There is no rocket science behind this new mode and it starts just like every other match for every for solo players, because squads or duos are not allowed in this mode. Right after you are dropped into the map, you go out seeking to wipe out your competition while also looking for the Infinity Gauntlet. When you finally find it to claim for yourself, you become Thanos and this one is not just a cool looking skin. Like his movie version, he is a force to be reckoning with even though there is no Hulk.

Upon becoming The Mad Titan, players will be given 700 health and 300 shields, which are way above than what regular brawlers gets. However, he is not able to regain his health if hurt but his shields regenerates with kills. Instead of being able to pick up weapons, he some special moves including Leaping, Punching, Shooting Beams and Smashing. Before anyone picks the Gauntlet, no one really knows where it is but as soon as someone becomes mighty Thanos, it is picked up on everyone’s radar.
