-CD Projekt RED has released several videos about Cyberpunk 2077. This game looks really, really cool and is sure to be one of the best games of the year when it releases Novermber 19, 2020. I hate to just assume things like that but given CDPR’s track record I feel safe is saying this. Here’s a link to a YouTube page that includes a large number of videos about the game. The most recent videos are about the lore and lifepaths, or backstory, you can pick for your character.
-Square Enix’s The Avengers games is the middle of a beta period. Last weekend they did a closed beta on PS4. This coming weekend (Friday August 14 to Sunday August 16th) they’re doing an open beta on PS4 and closed beta on Xbox One and PC. Then the weekend after they’re doing an open beta on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. I haven’t the game but I have heard the news about how Spider-Man is exclusive to PS4, how you can get different costumes based on which mobile provider you have, etc.
I generally think exclusive content for pre-ordering, for being on a certain console, and stuff like that sucks. I don’t like it. Costumes and cosmetics aren’t a huge deal, though it still sucks, but sometimes it involves story content or missions and stuff. That’s BS. At the same time, I understand a platform holder may give you money for such exclusive content and depending on the financial health of your company, you might have to do it, but I still think it sucks and shouldn’t be done unless absolutely necessary.
Not a big day for news so far. Thanks for reading and have a good day.
