Bloodborne

Even though a new entry of the Dark Souls series is currently in development, From Software is not going to abandon their latest game, the PlayStation 4 exclusive action role playing game Bloodborne. Not too long ago, it’s been confirmed that a new DLC expansion is currently in the works and that it will be released sometime in the future.  Details on the expansion are quite scarce at the moment but a few hours ago some small details on it have emerged online.

Speaking with Kotaku, Sony World Studios President Shuhei Yoshida has revealed that the Bloodborne DLC expansion is a quite sizeable effort. Unfortunately Mr. Yoshida didn’t add much more, only stating that more on it will be coming later this year.

Something new on the Bloodborne DLC release date has also emerged. When asked about its release date, Shuhei Yoshida simply stated that he’d like to play it this year. Judging from the words used, there’s the chance that the DLC expansion might be released this year but it looks like nothing has been decided as of now.

The latest Bloodborne update has been released around two months ago in all regions. The update introduced plenty of tweaks and bug fixes which improve the experience considerably such as improved password matching, which can now be done regardless of the players’ level, the ability to store up to 600 Blood Vials and Quicksilver Bullets, improved rewards for bosses in the Chalice Dungeons and more.

The previous Bloodborne update, the 1.03 one, introduced a fix for one of the more annoying issues that plagued the game at launch: the long loading times. Not the loading times have been drastically shortened by the update but also a new loading has been introduced, showing descriptions of the many items and weapons included in the game.

Bloodborne is now available in all regions exclusively on PlayStation 4. News on the DLC expansion will be coming in the future and we will let you know more about it as soon possible so stay tuned for all the latest news.

Thanks, Kotaku

Star Wars Outlaws has Ubisoft’s biggest marketing budget ever, and the company expects it to have a strong launch

Ubisoft is putting everything they have into Star Wars Outlaws, which comes out next month on August 30th for PS5. The fact that the name includes “Star Wars” shouldn’t come as a surprise when you learn that the company is putting a lot of money into marketing the project and thinks it will do very well.

The CEO of Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot, made the bold claim during the company’s recent earnings call Q&A (thanks, MP1st), though some investors thought it was even more daring than they thought. Based on Ubisoft’s guidance, Nick Dempsey of Barclays came up with a rough estimate of five million units sold and asked if the company was being too cautious. This is what Guillemot said:

“What we expect is for Star Wars Outlaws to have a strong launch.” One reason is that it’s one of the most anticipated games of the year, which shows how positively the community feels about it. Another is that we’re launching the biggest marketing campaign Ubisoft has ever done for a game.

We’d like to know how much Ubisoft spent to market this and what the company expects to get back from it. We had some small worries when we played the game in person at Summer Game Fest, but we’ll keep an eye on things before and after launch.

Are you excited about how soon Star Wars Outlaws will be out? Do you think the game’s supposedly huge marketing budget has an impact on your life? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.
