Sony Confirms They Are Investing More Money For PS5 Exclusives

This latest generation of video game console platforms didn’t have the big reveals and marketing campaigns that previous consoles had. Thanks to the worldwide health pandemic, Sony and Microsoft were pretty limited in how they could go around to showcase their new consoles for players. However, what worked out on their end was the fact that so many quarantine orders had driven up sales for video games along with their platforms. With that said, there was a major problem that we’re still facing today with these latest consoles.

Right now it’s tough getting your hands on a unit. With a short supply of electronics, there’s some difficulty in getting units out into the marketplace and even Sony confirmed that the PlayStation 5 supply will not drastically improve this fiscal year. There’s another problem Sony may have on their hands, and it’s the line of exclusives available to put out into the marketplace. Today we’re finding out that Sony is making some moves right now to hopefully grant some new content for players to enjoy this console generation.

Microsoft has been making some big moves by acquiring different studios. In fact, the ZeniMax Media purchase gave the Bethesda, which could mean that video games like The Elder Scrolls or Fallout may be future exclusives to the Xbox brand. Likewise, Microsoft’s latest move is to get subscribers on their Xbox Game Pass subscription service. This would give players access to all of Microsoft’s first-party games at launch along with a bunch of third-party video game titles for just a small monthly fee. To top it off, Microsoft is even bringing out streaming to the Xbox Game Pass service for PC players which means you won’t have to download or install these games.

Recently Sony held an investor call in which the CFO Hiroki Totoki, made note that they are investing about $180 million towards in-house and external developments. This means there will be more money spread out to provide exclusives to the PlayStation 5 with Sony even striking up deals with external development studios to provide an exclusive for the PlayStation 5. We’re not sure if these are timed exclusive deals or what studios, in particular, have been partnered with Sony, but this could provide more games to make the PlayStation 5 competitive to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass service. For now, only time will tell if Sony’s investments will turn into big profits.

Dying Light 2 Will Have “A Lot More” Open World Events Than the First Game

Techland drops new details on the upcoming open world title.


dying light 2

In spite of its troubled development and multiple delays, Dying Light 2 developer Techland has been sharing updates and details on the upcoming game much more frequently of late. Recently, they started uploading AMA videos to answer questions from fans, and in another video they’ve released a few more details about the game.

Specifically, when asked about the game’s open world and how it will compare to the first Dying Light, associate producer Julia Szynkaruk said that Dying Light 2’s open world is going to have a lot more to do, not just in terms of events and encounters, but also in terms of areas to explore.

“Yes, there will be a lot more open world events in Dying Light 2,” Szynkaruk said (transcribed by MP1st). “Not only will we have a living world with encounters all over, but also you will be able to explore new locations, such as GRE Quaratines or Dark Places.”

Meanwhile, lead game designer Tymon Smektala also said that though Dying Light 2 is going to be a choice-based games, as far as aligning with the factions in the game goes, you will not have the option to not align with anyone whatsoever.

“You have to understand that our world is extremely brutal, extremely primal, full of threats and conflicts,” he said. “So, if you have no allies, you basically die very quickly — and we don’t want you to die very quickly, and we also want you to make a decision,  we also want you to make a statement. So a lone wolf option is not available, you will have to decide if you want to play with those guys or the other ones.”

Dying Light 2 currently has no firm release date. It’s in development for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. On next-gen consoles, the game will support 4K, 60 FPS, and ray-tracing across multiple graphics modes. Read more on that through here. Meanwhile, Techland is also working to ensure that the game is properly optimized on PS4 and Xbox One.

PlayStation Studios Steam Page Hints at More Upcoming PC Releases

Sony has previously suggested it will be bringing more games to PC down the road.


PlayStation Studios

A year ago, it seemed impossible that first party PlayStation games would ever be playable on any platform, but of late, Sony’s started bringing over some of its marquee games over to PC. It started with Horizon Zero Dawn, and soon, Days Gone is releasing for PC. PlayStation Studios now has a dedicated page on Steam, appropriately enough, and the page suggests that more games might be coming in the near future.

The PlayStation Studios creators page lists 41 games under its Steam publications so far, which includes games as well as DLCs. Interestingly enough though, only 24 of those are currently viewable on Steam- Horizon Zero Dawn, Predator: Hunting Grounds, Helldivers, and all of their respective DLCs. Of course, Days Gone is coming up as well, and it’s going to have DLCs of its own added to Steam, though that still wouldn’t explain the sizeable gap between the total games listed and the ones that are currently viewable.

Of course, while announced Days Gone for PC, PlayStation Studios boss Jim Ryan did say that “a whole slate” of first party PlayStation games will also be released for the platform in the future, so this doesn’t come as a surprise. It is interesting, however, that they might be ready sooner than you would have thought.

Biomutant Gameplay Trailers Showcase PS4 and Xbox One Performance

Experiment 101 has also shared details on console frame rates and resolutions.


Biomutant

With Experiment 101’s Biomutant out this month, the developer and THQ Nordic have released some new gameplay trailers highlighting the performance on Xbox One and PS4. Check them out below. Frame rates and resolutions that can be expected across each platform, including PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, have also been revealed.

On PC, the action RPG will run at 4K/60 FPS but there won’t be a cap on the frame rate. For Xbox One and PS4, you can expect a dynamic 1080p resolution and 30 FPS performance. PS4 Pro and Xbox One X players can look forward to 60 FPS performance but again, at a dynamic 1080p resolution.

While the title will be playable on Xbox Series X/S and PS5 through backwards compatibility, it will likely default to the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro frame rates and resolutions respectively. Experiment 101 hasn’t revealed plans for a current-gen update so we’ll need to wait for more details in the coming months. In the meantime, Biomutant is out for Xbox One, PS4 and PC on May 25th.

Arkane’s New Fantasy IP is Reportedly Called “Omen”; Vampire-Related and Coming Next Year – Rumour

The game is apparently going to be announced at E3.

Earlier this year, job listings suggested that Arkane Studios’ Austin team, who developed Prey and Dishonored, were working on a new fantasy IP. Now, some new details on whatever this new game is have potentially emerged- and the game’s apparently closer to launch than you’d expect.

The rumour originated on ResetEra and has since been shared on Twitter by @_XboxNews. Arkane Austin’s new IP is apparently called Omen (or that’s its working title, at least) and has vampires. The game apparently has Spring 2022 target launch window, and will allegedly be revealed at E3 next month, perhaps with a CGI trailer.

Of course, this is an unconfirmed, unverified report, so take this with a grain of salt, but if it does turn out to be accurate, it’ll be interesting to see what a studio as talented as Arkane does with this premise. We’ll keep you updated on all new details, of course, so stay tuned.
