FarCry 5 2019

With a surprise teaser trailer earlier this week, the folks at Ubisoft have officially unveiled the newest upcoming entry in the Far Cry series, Far Cry New Dawn.

New Dawn looks to take place after the events of Far Cry 5 where nuclear devastation fell upon Hope County. The Far Cry universe has explored tropical islands to the wilds of Africa, even the primal days of the Mesolithic era, and now for the first time players will explore the Far Cry universe in a post-apocalyptic, nuclear-ravaged world.

Check out the world premiere of the Far Cry New Dawn announcement trailer below:

 

 

Ubisoft’s first-person shooter appears to star twin sisters 17 years after the bombs fell as players scavenge the world fighting for their place to fit in. There’s a new natural order to society, and the old ways don’t seem to work for the new world any longer.

All of the usual features that Far Cry fans are familiar with seem to be making a comeback to the series, such as a variety of land and aerial vehicles, companions including a beloved canine friend, and plenty of gun-toting enemies in the form of post-apocalyptic raiders.

Far Cry New Dawn is hitting stores pretty soon with a February 15, 2019 release date on the PS4 and Xbox One. Stay tuned for more details on Far Cry New Dawn as we get closer to its release.

Writer and avid gamer, Chris will put together an article to keep the reader engaged, informed and moderately happy for a solid 4 minutes. That my friend, is no easy feat.

New World Interactive, the developer of the Insurgency series of tactical first-person shooters, has laid off an unknown number of employees as part of Embracer Group’s comprehensive restructuring plan.

Saber Interactive, which acquired New World in 2020, told Eurogamer that the studio had not closed. However, it confirmed an unknown number of layoffs.

Embracer says it is “actively working to fill existing open roles” with impacted employees and will provide severance packages. “Saber also assures that development will continue on Insurgency: Sandstorm, as well as on unannounced future projects,” it said.

Over 900 employees were laid off in an “agonizing” but “necessary” process. As always, we hope all victims recover.

Sony: We Need Non-Gamers to Access Our Content

Sony wants non-console owners to access its content beyond its PlayStation-walled garden. This strategy has been slowly implemented: the company has commissioned TV and movie adaptations of its biggest franchises, ported select software to the PC, and launched a mobile gaming division.

In an interview with Nikkei, head Hideaki Nishino explained how this strategy can boost console sales: We want to use movies and dramas to get non-gamers to try PlayStation games. Sales of The Last of Us increased during the live-action drama.

When HBO’s adaptation aired, our The Last of Us content skyrocketed, so we can understand its impact. As a PlayStation fan site, we support this strategy because we want to reach as many people as possible, so if Sony can appeal to non-console owners, that’s a win-win.

More PlayStation users is better, in our opinion.

PowerWash Simulator is one of this month’s PS Plus Essentials, but before you start scrubbing, check out the PS Store. The game has been well supported on PS5 and PS4 with free DLC packs based on Square Enix titles since its release at the start of the year.

Free Final Fantasy VII and Tomb Raider expansions let you clean Croft Manor and Seventh Heaven. The free DLC packs add 10 levels, and the paid ones add more.

Two more Back to the Future and SpongeBob SquarePants expansions cost £6.49 or $7.99 each. You can then scrub the Bikini Bottom and the DeLorean.

The Midgar Special Pack for PowerWash Simulator was another reason to use the cleaning kit. “It doesn’t add much, but getting close to FF7’s props and environments is fun. It offers a fresh take on the beloved title that will please both sides of this collaboration.”
