Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition

In the past few weeks we have received plenty of footage for Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition, the new version of the action game developed by Capcom launching later this month in all regions on consoles and PC, but most of the footage was set in the Bloody Palace mode, an extra play mode where players have to defeat waves of different enemies and bosses. Later today, we will finally get more footage of the game’s story mode.

Earlier today it’s been confirmed that a new livestream which will be aired on Japanese website Nico Nico at 7:00 PM Japan Time is going to showcase Vergil’s story mode. The new character is actually the only character of the game who will be playable on all missions, as Nero, Dante, Lady and Trish will only be playable in one of the two halves of the story mode.

Last week a new batch of Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition screenshots has surfaced online, showcasing one of the new playable characters of the game, Trish. The character originally introduced in the original Devil May Cry is going to come with a few special moves that will take advantage of her demonic powers. Trish is not going to be as complex as Dante so she will be perfect for those who have never played Devil May Cry 4 or any other entry of the series before.

More news on the franchise as a whole might be coming next week during the E3. The latest episode of Capcom TV aired last week confirmed that series producer Hideaki Itsuno is going to be present at the E3. Mr. Itsuno will be present to better promote Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition so it’s not certain we will be getting news on a possible new entry of the series.

Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition will be released in Japan on June 18th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as a physical and digital release. A Limited Edition is also getting released in Japan, including several extra goodies that fans of the series will surely appreciate. The game will be released on June 23rd on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC as a digital only release.

Are you eagerly anticipating what Absurd Ventures has in store for us in the coming years

Activision has recently announced the establishment of a new studio, Elsewhere Entertainment, located in Warsaw. The studio has been entrusted with the exciting challenge of creating a groundbreaking AAA franchise that will captivate players with its immersive storytelling and innovative gameplay. A significant number of employees were let go by the large corporation after the completion of Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard King earlier this year.

According to IGN, Activision made the announcement in a blog post, sharing that the team will be based in Poland with additional resources in the US. The studio has assembled a team of highly skilled individuals who have worked on acclaimed titles such as The Last of Us, Uncharted, The Witcher, Destiny, Far Cry, and Tom Clancy’s The Division.

Activision’s response to IGN’s request for a studio logo or official artwork was rather unconventional. Instead of providing the requested materials, they sent over the Cambridge University dictionary definition of the word “elsewhere.”. However, with a discerning eye, one may catch a glimpse of something lurking in the background. The publication acknowledges that, whatever it may be, it has no connection to Call of Duty. Elsewhere Entertainment has been granted full access to Activision’s extensive resources and cutting-edge tools, enabling them to further enhance their production and development capabilities. We may have to wait a while before we find out what they have in store for us.

Curious about Activision’s latest venture, Elsewhere Entertainment? Opening a new studio after numerous layoffs—is it a tasteless move or simply another harsh reality of the video game industry? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Last year, we reported that Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser had launched a new studio called Absurd Ventures, with the aim of developing original IP for all platforms and formats. The new outfit has recently started development on a game that boasts top-notch combat and third-person action in a variety of game modes.

This information is available, as Eurogamer discovered, from a recent job listing on the developer’s website. The company is looking for more people to join their team and contribute to an “open-world action-adventure game.”. According to Eurogamer, it seems that the project they are working on is still in its early stages. They are currently in the process of hiring for important positions like lead designer, lead gameplay designer, art director, and technical director.

Absurd Venture is dedicated to crafting immersive narrative experiences across a wide range of mediums, such as games, animation, books, graphic novels, live-action, and scripted podcasts. Their mission is to create captivating worlds, compelling characters, and engaging stories that span diverse genres. The former vice president of writing at Rockstar, who co-wrote both Red Dead Redemption games, has recently joined the studio. Additionally, Lazlow Jones, a former writer and producer at Rockstar, has also come on board.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows, the physical version, requires an online connection for installation

Players who choose to go with a physical copy of the recently announced Assassin’s Creed Shadows will need an Internet connection in order to finish the installation. This is unlikely to pose a problem for most Ubisoft fans, but it does align with a trend that is worth mentioning. It follows a requirement that was initially introduced in 2023’s Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and will also be the case with the upcoming Star Wars Outlaws.

As reported by VGC, pre-orders for the game are now available, and a notice on the front box art at retailers such as Best Buy and GameStop states: “Internet connection is necessary for game installation.” For Avatar, players had to install a day-one patch before being able to start the game. However, both Shadows and Outlaws come with a warning prominently displayed on the front of the box.

The lack of a clear explanation for this requirement raises concerns about the long-term preservation of the game, particularly if the servers are eventually shut down. In December, Ubisoft made the decision to delist the original The Crew, effectively ending its run. This unfortunate event may not be the last time we see a game meet a similar fate.

What are your thoughts on Ubisoft’s requirement of an online connection for the installation of its flagship games? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
