Remedy Entertainment announced the sequel for their horror game from 2010, Alan Wake. This particular sequel is made from scratch for the adaptation to the new generation of consoles, and it will introduce dual narratives, which will diversify the game more.

It’s been thirteen years since the original Alan Wake, and his story will continue on October 17, 2023.

Capcom announced Resident Evil 4 VR version

If you thought that the horror adventure of Resident Evil 4 was scary, wait until the VR version of the game gets released. This remake of the successful Capcom game was extremely popular this year, and it seems that the VR edition of the game will attract more interest from the players.

The release date is not confirmed yet, but Capcom announced that the VR Mode would be free for players who own the game on their PlayStation 5 consoles as VR2-exclusive DLC.

New Assassins Creed is underway

Ubisoft introduced their new sequel to one of their most notable franchises, Assassin’s Creed Mirage.

This particular game follows a new protagonist named Basim, and the story is set before the events of ‘Assassin’s Creed Vallhala.’ The game looks really good, but the until we see the full game, we won’t know if the developers added more than one new content to the game – as the one we see in the video above.


Blizzard Celebrates ‘Diablo: Immortal’ 1-Year Anniversary with Diablo IV-themed Crossover

Metal Gear Solid Δ: Snake Eater got many old-school fans excited

The remaster of the successful Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater game from 2004 is on the way and will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive. We still don’t know the concrete release date of this popular title.

However, seeing Kojima’s masterpiece being refreshed and brought back to win over new fans is what makes the old-school fans really excited – Big Boss will come back.

Long awaited Insomniac’s Spider-Man sequel made fans really excited

This particular gameplay trailer got fans really excited. After two great Spider-Man games that followed Peter Parker and Miles Morales, Spider-Man 2 will be the game where the player will play with multiple characters.

Also, Symbiote Spider-Man will be featured in the game, and frankly, I wish I had PlayStation 5 in my possession. Multiple new characters from Marvel Comics were introduced, and the new, upgraded open-world gameplay will feature the city of New York once again.

You can recognize other great titles from the list, like Final Fantasy XVI and Bungie’s Marathon. Sony even introduced their upcoming handheld console that will most likely rival Nintendo Switch, indicating more exciting things to come until the end of 2023.

Diablo IV’s First Big Patch Introduces Class Balance & Buffs for Underperforming Classes

Diablo IV first big patch

Diablo IV received its first big patch for all platforms, and great emphasis has been put on underperforming classes. 

The aim of the patch was to strike a balance between making players feel powerful and maintaining the health and integrity of the game. Devs acknowledged that certain class builds are overly powerful and disrupt the intended combat experience, while some classes were severely underperforming compared to their OP counterparts. 

“While we want players to both feel and be truly powerful, some Class builds, and synergies are outside of our bounds for what is reasonable for the health of the game, so we are reducing their effectiveness. As an example, we generally want to avoid creating situations where players can survive unreasonably high amounts of damage for long periods of time because it too greatly warps our vision for how combat should be in Diablo IV. ” 

Barbarina was affected by changes with, among other changes, damage reduction from 4 % to 2 %. Druid was affected by similar changes seeing damage reduction across several abilities, including duration reduction for “Grizzly Rage.” Necromancer, in turn, received a damage buff and reduction of cooldowns across several abilities. Rogue has drastic changes in terms of cooldown, which will significantly affect the damage output.

Other minor changes include significantly reduced the spawn rate of Treasure Goblins within PvP zones and several other bug fixes and small improvements. 

You can read the full patch notes on the official Diablo pages.

Minecraft 1.20 Update Trails Tales Has an Official Release Date

Following a lengthy silence, fans of the planetary popular sandbox game Minecraft can rejoice as the release date for the long-awaited ‘Trails & Tales’ update has been revealed. 

‘Trails & Tales’ will arrive on June 7, 2023, Mojang revealed on social media.

The ‘Trails & Tales’ Update introduces several new features to Minecraft 1.20. It includes a new biome called the cherry grove, which is rare but beautiful with its pink appearance. Two new wood sets, bamboo and cherry, will be added, allowing players to craft and build with them. The bamboo wood set includes a raft that can be crafted with or without a chest.

A new mob called the camel will be introduced, which can be ridden by one or two players. The camel has long legs that allow it to travel anywhere, providing a safe mode of transportation as melee mobs cannot reach the rider. 

The second mob added to the game is the Sniffer. This was decided during Minecraft’s 2022 community mob vote. This gentle giant was once extinct but can now be brought back to the Overworld by finding its eggs, hatching them, and watching the snifflet grow into a full-grown sniffer.

Players will also be able to share their stories through wearable storytelling. Armor trims are being added, which can be found in different dimensions of Minecraft. These trims can be dyed in ten different colors and added to armor using a smithing table, allowing players to showcase their victories and accomplishments to others.


New Soundtrack Released for the Upcoming Minecraft Trails & Tales Update

New features also include the ability to hang signs, providing a way to leave notes for friends or deceive enemies. Players can now create playable mob sounds by placing a mob head, including the new piglin mob head, on a note block. 

For those who want to document their adventures, a new chiseled bookshelf will be added, where players can safely store books, enchanted books, and even books and quills. Redstone can be added to the bookshelf for added movement, creating a dynamic library experience.

The update also brings calibrated skulk sensors, which are more sensitive and offer exciting possibilities for redstone contraptions.

The ‘Trails & Tales’ update will be available for download on June 7 for Minecraft: Java Edition on Windows, macOS, and Linux; and Minecraft: Bedrock Edition on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, and Chromebook.
