The Witcher

With The Witcher 3 becoming so successful, some players who have never played the previous entry of the series asked CD Projekt RED about the possible release of remastered versions of the two games. The team’s community manager revealed that remasters will hardly ever happen but it seems like Xbox One owners will at least be able to play the second entry of the series on their console.

A few hours ago CD Projekt RED Marcin Momot has revealed that The Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings is going to become playable on Xbox One through the Backwards Compatibility feature in the future. A precise date has yet to be confirmed but we should hear more about the matter soon.

On a related note, it’s also been confirmed that the Arena that was included in The Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings will not be making a comeback in The Witcher 3. While this is definitely disappointing for those who liked the Arena, there are plenty of opportunities to fight enemies in the world of The Witcher 3.

Before the end of the month The Witcher 3 is going to receive a new patch on all formats. The new patch, which will be called patch 1.12, is not going to include any new feature and it will all about fixes. With the team working on the Blood and Wine expansion, it definitely makes sense to launch new features alongside the expansion.

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt is now available in all regions on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings is now available on PC and Xbox 360 will be playable on Xbox One through the backwards compatibility feature on a yet to be confirmed date. We will let you know more about the matter as soon as possible so stay tuned for all the latest news.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
