Wildlands players’ long wait for PvP is almost over: This morning, Ubisoft announced that an open beta for Ghost Recon: Wildlands upcoming tactical PvP mode, called Ghost War, will start this summer
If there’s a general consensus on the Destiny 2 beta, it’s this: Player vs. Player (PvP) makes you feel great; Player vs. Environment (PvE) makes you feel underpowered. Bungie is hearing all of those complaints. The studio says to expect changes when the game launches for real in September.
It may not surprise you to hear that Kirk and I have THOUGHTS on the Destiny 2 beta, which is leaving us cautiously optimistic for the full game. Today on Kotaku Splitscreen, let’s discuss.
Destiny 2, a video game that just got un-delayed, will hit PC on October 24, developer Bungie said today. The PS4 and Xbox One versions, meanwhile, will arrive two days earlier than expected, on September 6.
Sony is now accepting signups for the PlayStation 4 system software 4.5 beta. PS4 owners interested in getting a sneak peek at what’s coming in the next big revision can sign up between now and the beta’s early February launch.
Earlier this year I covered the GTA V community’s attempt to find beta and cut content. Recently, that group hit the motherlode with images that give us a sense of how GTA V changed over development.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare hasn’t particularly had my interest but after playing a weekend of its multiplayer, I’m impressed. Running around as a machine gun armed robo-soldier was a damn good time.
Nioh is an upcoming Playstation 4 exclusive that blends aspects of Dark Souls, Onimusha, and even a little Genji: Days of the Blade to create a fast paced hack and slash game. The game is currently hosting an open beta. A perfect chance for some samurai action!
It’s a tradition as old as... well, probably a few years, anyway. A game’s beta drops, and PC players crack it open in hopes of suckling out sweet morsels of information. Respawn’s seen it happen, and they’ve decided it’s just not worth the risk with Titanfall 2.
To be fair, it’s a pretty big twist. While The Elder Scrolls Legends beta has a whole lot of Hearthstone going on, it’s going on in two lanes at once, which is actually pretty cool.
You will not ride a majestic unicorn within the first ten minutes of Riders of Icarus, Nexon’s free-to-play massively multiplayer online role-playing game, which launches into free open beta tomorrow. That’s for 20 minutes in. First comes the pegasus.
Exploration has always been at the heart of the Pokémon series. A young person strikes out on a monster-collecting adventure, learning about the world around them along the way. My brief time with Pokémon Go felt like that, albeit on a slightly smaller scale.
Rollerblading healer hero Lucio is one of my favorite characters to play in Overwatch. The simple act of skating around feels great, especially when you’re riding walls like gravity’s just another rail ripe for grinding. This guy, though, he’s turned it into an art form.
Overwatch is a game about interplay between many different heroes, some of whom represent entirely different subgenres of FPS. Despite the potential for unbalanced chaos, it all clicks. The reason? Details like this one.
Whether you’re an itsy bitsy baby Overwatch player or that Junkrat who keeps using his exploding tire to hunt me and only me (I WILL FIND YOUR HOME), you’ll fare about the same against a room plastered with death lasers: poorly.
The latest Overwatch update didn’t just give Tracer a different, slightly more in-character butt pose; it also gave players a reason to fight until they can’t fight anymore (that isn’t butts).
Today’s big Internet controversy involves butts, as these things so often do. An Overwatch player complained about one character’s butt-centric victory pose, prompting the game’s director to say they’re removing it.
