    Ubisoft has detailed its ongoing plans for The Division 2 in a rather lengthy post over on the community forums. The aim is to ‘share not only updates on present issues but also contextualize some of our design decisions.’ A fix is also planned for the True Patriot gear set bonus and the Revive Hive is also getting a couple of tweaks, with more expected in the future. They’re currently looking to reproduce the problems players have been experiencing and have requested more feedback on these issu

    Mortal Kombat 11 has released a reveal trailer for Kitana, officially confirming her place on the roster. Kitana’s trailer shows off her trademark fans, along with her blue outfit as she does battle with D’Vorah, We also get a look at her Fatality, which is a suitably gruesome slice-and-dice affair. Kitana’s return in Mortal Kombat 11 wasn’t entirely unexpected. She was first noticed as a placeholder in the recent roster leak and, along with her appearance in a TV trailer last week, we can’t say

  • Destiny 2’s Arc Week brought some pretty big improvements to the game’s pre-Forsaken Arc subclasses, but it may be working a little too well. Bungie said in yesterday’s TWAB update that a bug in how damage modifiers are applied means that Arcstriders are hitting (a lot) harder than they’re supposed to. “We are looking intro Arcstrider supers and their ability to achieve higher-than-intended damage against bosses when mixing certain perks. The 2.2.1 update enabled the Arcstrider’s Combination Blo

  • It looks like golf, a sport predominantly played by rich white men in real life and Mario characters in videogames. There are definitely no Aztecs in this game, called PangYa, about magical anime girls playing golf. It’s the same age as World of Warcraft, and described as “an online multiplayer casual golf simulation” on Wikipedia . I love that unexpected, borderline contradictory combination of words: “online multiplayer casual golf simulation.” Hell yeah, sign me up” and people who said “Anime

  • Fortnite pros thought airplanes were the worst of it, but after the sudden removal of a beloved health bonus per kill and the addition of an even more broken vehicle, Fortnite pros are about as sad-mad as I’ve seen them. Sure, Fortnite pros have been complaining about the state of Fortnite since the dawn of Fortnite. They’re pros. Fortnite pros do tend to know when an update or addition is refreshing for the competitive meta or totally broken. At least the Fortnite World Cup qualifiers are going

  • The First World War shooter Verdun celebrates the famed Christmas Truce of 1914 with a special in-game event in which players from opposing sides can get together for snowball fights, soccer games, and card exchanges. Starting today and running until April 22, something similar, yet very different is happening in the trenches of its standalone expansion Tannenberg: The Wolf Truce. The Wolf Truce event in Tannenberg recreates that lupine invasion by injecting aggressive wolves into the game, but

  • Entitled Cayde’s Six, the digital comic begins with our titular hero explaining why an ostensibly simple bounty-hunting job went very wrong. The comic features appearances by Destiny supporting characters Hawthorne, Banshee-44, Nadiya, and Petra Venj, and a guy named Jin, who I’m sorry to say I don’t recognize—but he looks a bit like the Drifter, doesn’t he? Also interesting is that their quarry is Araskes, The Trickster, a Baron of the Scorn who helped kill Cayde-6 in Forsaken. Call me a hopele

  • Having trouble deciding on the best gaming PC for your budget? If you’re looking to stretch your dollar, Walmart has a tantalizing deal or a second-generation Ryzen system with a GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card tucked inside. It’s the Skytech Archangel Elite, which we had previously highlighted as one of the noteworthy cheap gaming PC deals in recent weeks. Regardless of the brand, though, it’s a fast card and a good deal in a system at this price. We also like that Skytech opted for a 500GB soli

  • (Image: © Pixabay via geralt (no attribution needed))Security researchers say they have discovered several flaws in the Wi-Fi Protected Access 3 (WPA3) protocol that could allow an attacker to crack a user’s password and ultimately access encrypted traffic. The newer security protocol addressed that vulnerability and added a bunch of other protections, but it may not be as secure as we thought. In this case, one of the flaws could allow an attacker to brute-force an eight-character, lowercase pa

  • The Sinking City is the latest, an open-world, action detective game where PI Charles W. Reed tries to discover the origins of flooded city Oakmont’s ruin, and perhaps his own encroaching madness. Elementary my dear whitebaitAnd so we’re off, conducting an investigation that will feel incredibly familiar to anyone who played Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter or Crimes and Punishments.

  • Microsoft has confirmed that a recent update for Windows is causing some PCs to freeze or hang after applying the patch. The security update in question includes improvements and fixes that were part of update KB4489892 released last month, Microsoft says. Avira said it has been able to reproduce the error, and that it “is occurring because of a current Windows update.” Likewise, Avira recommends rolling back the recent updates, and specifically KB4493509 on Windows 10 PCs, and KB4493472 and KB4

  • Epic Games has signed another big name, but this time it’s not a game but a person: Jason West, who co-founded Call of Duty studio Infinity Ward with Vince Zampella and Grant Collier in 2002, and then split with parent company Activision (under less-than-pleasant circumstances) to launch Titanfall and Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment with Zampella in 2010. Word of the surprise hiring came from Game Awards creator and ever-present man on the inside Geoff Keighley, who just tweeted it

  • EVE Online developers CCP have tried to establish several spin-off projects over the years—Project Nova is the most recent—and it seems that the studio is not ready to give up quite yet. EVE Online has been going now for 16 years and with a firm playerbase, there are only a handful of games that can rival its longevity. So it’s really no surprise that creators, CCP have attempted various spin-offs in that time. What is surprising is that they’re not at all ready to stop trying and will keep goin

  • Saber Interactive’s co-op survival game, World War Z, is set for release next week and we’ve been treated to an early launch trailer to get another look at the action. The trailer, which you can watch above, shows off the Left 4 Dead-esque hordes of zombies that you’re up against, whether that’s in New York, Moscow, Jerusalem, or Tokyo. Regardless of whether you play co-op with friends, or against others in the game’s PvPvZ multiplayer mode, you have six different classes to choose from. The sys

  • Elite Dangerous’ next update, due to land on April 23, will add a whole host of improvements as well as making the space sim more welcoming for new and returning players alike. A new Beginner’s Zone is being added, which will give newcomers a number of systems to explore while they get to grips with the game. The Pilot’s Handbook is another addition aimed at making Elite Dangerous much more player-friendly. New modules are also being added; an Advanced Docking Computer will let you automatically

    Borderlands 2 has seen a huge increase in concurrent players on Steam in the last week, no doubt a result of escalating interest in the series following the reveal of Borderlands 3. The game peaked just shy of 60K players last weekend—59,033 according to Steam Charts (highlighted here on GitHype). Borderlands 2 has remained a firm favourite with PC players since its release back in 2012. If you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, you can check out why Jody thought Borderlands 2 was ahead of

  • Bethesda has released yet another trailer for Rage 2, due out next month. The latest video details the many enemies you face, as well as the harsh landscape you’re forced to survive in. The trailer, aptly titled ‘Everything vs. Me,’ is an action-packed glimpse at menacing cyborgs, stealthy samurai, redneck mechs, and familiar goons. As the release date of May 14 gets ever closer, Rage 2 isn’t pulling any punches with its onslaught of trailers. If you’re looking for more trailers, we’ve gathered

  • I’m no good at Ikaruga, but I’m surprisingly slightly competent at Daniel Linssen’s brilliant, and Ikaruga-inspired arcade game Breaker. Created for the 2018 Fantastic Arcade Bundle, but now available to download separately for free, Breaker is a “blend of Breakout, Space Invaders and Ikaruga”, that feels thrillingly original with it. You play as a sort of rectangle thing, using the left and right arrow keys to rotate yourself around a playing field. As you might imagine, the screen quickly beco

  • Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is banned in Nepal effective today, according to a report in the Kathmandu Post. The move comes after the Nepal Metropolitan Crime Division filed a Public Interest Litigation with the Kathmandu District Court on Wednesday. A day later, the Nepal Telecommunication Authority has called for all ISPs and mobile service providers to block the game. “Parents and schools had complained that the game was affecting their children’s studies and making them more aggressive,” h
