Witcher 3 is widely regarded as one of the greatest RPGs ever released. It is ranked among classics like Skyrim, Dragon Age: Origins and Baldurs Gate. Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was when the, then small, Polish Developer CD Projekt Red really struck gold. They seem set to follow that success up with Witcher 4.

Based on the best-selling book series by Polish Author Andrzej Sapkowski, the Witcher series follows the story of Geralt of Rivia. Geralt is a monster hunter imbued with  incredible training and some pretty brutal body modifications.  Geralt travels the world ridding it of the monsters that plague the land. For a price of course.

CD Projekt have released three Witcher games in total. Witcher 3 is one of most critically acclaimed video games of all time. The DLC Blood and Wine has already added around 20 hours of new content to an already great game. Of course, Gamers are gamers and that means that even this is not enough and there are already cries for more. Adam Kicinski, CEO of CD Projekt has previously said that it wouldn’t be fair to the fans of the Witcher games to stop making them. Adam said during an interview with a Polish TV station, that while they want to give the series some time to rest there will be a Witcher 4.

Witcher 3 may have been the end of Geralt’s tale but thankfully it is not the end for the Franchise. A new hero will take up Geralt’s mantle and thankfully there are a whole host of fascinating characters to choose from, so fans won’t be left disappointed. I’m personally hoping that Ciri will take her rightful place on the center stage.

Sadly it seems that we will likely have to settle in for the long haul before we find out who will take Geralt’s place.CD Projekt is currently working on the much anticipated (and mysterious) Cyberpunk 2077. With everyone busy on that we will be probably not see Witcher 4 until 2018 or 2019 at the earliest.

It looks like we’re in for a long wait before we get to dive back into Sapkowski’s world again. I think I’m going to pass the time by reading the saga.

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.
