|-Game News, Reviews, and Rants-|
Week of April 29th
Hey, guys! B. Chace here, and welcome to another… GAMES UPDATE!
This week, as a matter of fact, had A LOT going on in the gaming world, and I’m here to do my best to wrap it all up for you… all in one place.
One click of the mouse…
HERE WE GO!
1. Lionhead Studios has officially closed down
After 20 years, British developer Lionhead Studios has now since been closed. Microsoft had announced that it had been preparing for the studios closure since March, shortly after the upcoming MOBA Fable Legends was canceled. This consultation period included aiding staff in finding work, as required by British law, Microsoft said. #RIPLionhead
2. Battlefield 5 Announcement Imminent
Friday May 6th marks when developer DICE will reveal its new FPS, Battlefield 5. It has been rumoured that the new iteration to the Battlefield franchise will take place in WWI-WWII. Details are sparse, but, as can be expected, we will be seeing a trailer, and possibly gameplay.
3. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remaster
Announced via Call of Duty’s Twitter account, “I would crap my pants if I ever heard, ‘Call of Duty 4: Remaster’. Well, a poop emoji and a pair of pants have all but confirmed it. Much like Battlefield 5, details are few and far between. However, the HD remaster is rumored to have both single and multiplayer components.
4. PS4 Sold 18 Million Units last year, Hits Total 40 Million
Yes, you read that last bit correctly. PS4 sales are accelerating, and are expected to continue through 2016 and 2017. These numbers were revealed during Sony’s yearly financial briefing. For comparison, Wii U has only sold 12.8 million, and it’s been on the console market for 1 year longer than the PS4.
5. Fox News Voices Its Opinion on Tom Clancy’s The Division
It would seem that The Division really is making a name for itself, if only it was positive. Andy Levy, host of Skills Every 18 Year Old Needs, had heavy criticism for the game. “Be able to level up your character in The Division, despite the way Massive nerfed the crafting system and allows packs of super-geared Rogues to gank you in the Dark Zone- thanks a lot, jerks!”
And again, those are the top stories for this week. Come back next time for another Games Update.
Game on, guys!
