Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, the Ghost War mode is detailed in a video

With all the new games announced before and during the last E3 by Ubisoft, it was very likely that some of these titles would also be present during the Gamescom which is currently taking place.

While the title has just been crowned as Best PC Game at Gamescom Awards 2019, Ghost Recon: Breakpoint will also feature the Ghost War mode. Introduced in Ghost Recon: Wildlands a few months after its release, Ghost War is a PvP mode that pits two teams of 4 players against each other on a battlefield. Breakpoint’s Ghost War broadly resumes the features found in the previous title but it adds some improvements that connect it with the new features of the campaign.

Unlike in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, the Ghost War mode will be available in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint right from the start. Players can choose between four classes, Panther, Assault, Sniper and Medic, and six different cards. Two types of matches will be available to the players: Elimination, which consists of a 4v4 deathmatch with the novelty of the narrowing of the zone at the end of the game, like a Battle Royale. The second type of match, Sabotage, makes two teams clash while one tries to place a bomb that the second will try to defuse.

Other improvements that seem to concern these two modes have also been added, such as the cooldowns that have been removed, or a system for marking enemies. Ubisoft promises us a more tactical experience than ever, in which it will be necessary to be careful, but also team cooperation.

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint – The Ghost War Mode

Regarding progression, Ghost Recon: Breakpoint will also benefit from a major change, which is not just about the Ghost War mode. It will now be shared, which means that players will keep their progress, their character, and most of their equipment between PvE and PvP. This will allow players to fully enjoy both modes without having to spend hours to have an equal level in both.

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint will be released on October 4th on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. To get it at the best price, do not hesitate to visit our comparator.

For Honor is free on PC for a limited time

Ubisoft seems to be quite adamant on its intention of making For Honor available to everyone. The third-person view medieval action game has recently been up for grabs completely free on Epic Games Store and now they have announced that the PC version will be also free on Uplay for a while. If you missed the opportunity to get it then or if you are just upset with Epic Games because you wanted to play a game on Steam and it has turned out to be exclusive in their store, you can now get to Ubisoft’s store and claim the standard edition of For Honor for free until August 27.

For Honor is an action game that takes place in a medieval fantasy setting where the warriors of several factions representing Vikings, Samurais, and Knights, which fight for the supremacy. Each faction has a few unique classes available to them with their own weapons, skills, and fighting styles. Players will take part in single-player missions through the campaign or join the multiplayer mode to fight against other players in melee combat in seven different game modes.

If you like For Honor you should know that there is plenty of extra available content for the game. You can buy the Marching Fire expansion, which includes the Wu Lin, a fourth faction that represents Chinese warriors, as well as many new hero classes, gameplay modes, and maps.

One of the latest additions to For Honor, for example, is the Jörmungandr Hulda a new Viking hero class that has been recently introduced in For Honor. Wielding a war hammer, this fierce warrior aims to crush all the weaklings before the Ragnarok comes so only the bravest of all will get to take part in the Final Battle.

Battlefield 5 cancels its 5v5 mode

We have seen many times new modes added to video games that have been running for a while. It’s a common way of adding more content and keeping the players interested in the games. In some cases, it turns out that the new gameplay mode is even more popular than the base game itself like it happened with Fallout 76 and it’s Nuclear Winter mode. There are not many cases where a mode that was announced for a game ends canceled in the middle of its development. This is the case of Battlefield 5’s competitive 5v5 mode, which was supposed to be implemented in the future and now has been canceled.

When Chapter 4: Defying the Odds was launched for Battlefield 5, a new 5v5 competitive mode that would include dedicated arenas specially designed for it was to be added. Not many details were given about it, and we can understand it now since we are still waiting to see this new gameplay mode.

Battlefield 5’s senior producer Ryan McArthur has confirmed that we are not going to see it happening. He has said in a statement that the development team will be focusing on bug fixing, improving the quality of the game, and create more content for Battlefield 5 instead of adding the new multiplayer mode.

He has also revealed that the 4.6 update for Battlefield 5 will bring the Operation Underground map on Conquest, Team Deathmatch, Breakthrough, and Squad Conquest in September. Later on, they will be focusing on the Pacific theatre with the addition of new weapons, vehicles, factions, and visuals to support the upcoming maps.

The choice of delivering a better game instead of adding extra gameplay modes that may or may not fit the theme of Battlefield 5 doesn’t seem to be a bad thing. Giving the players more gameplay options is always good.

It’s true that Firestorm mode has been a great addition to Battlefield 5, for example, but since the resources are always limited, it comes to a point where there has to be a limit on the number of areas you want to cover in your game too, or you may spread your content too thin and end diluting its essence.

NBA 2K20, the demo is available

Just two weeks before the official release of NBA 2K20, a bit more of the game is to be revealed to the players. Indeed, although this news is not a surprise since we learned last month about it, the NBA 2K20 demo is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Added to this, we have also seen the recent publication of two videos. The first is called “When the Lights are Brightest” and it presents the career mode. We discover the first glimpse of the story, and the least we can say is that the cast is amazing. It includes Idris Elba, Rosario Dawson, and the famous LeBron James. With a significant cinematic dimension, we will have the opportunity to follow our player in all aspects of his career, in the field and the locker room, but also regarding the management of sponsors and the press.

The second video that accompanies the launch of the demo also shows us the career mode but it focuses on detailing the new MyPlayer tool. NBA 2K20 will allow us to customize our player like never before, with very precise characteristics and statistics, including the ability to choose your takeover. The combinations are so vast that we can create up to 100 different archetypes, as well as 50 new badges. The progression should also be faster than in NBA 2K19. And to create a player who will truly be your image, the mobile application MyNBA2K20 available on the App Store and Google Play allows you to scan your face and integrate it to your player, only on PS4 and Xbox One.

Regarding the content of the demo, do not expect to start your career. You will have to wait until the official release of the game. However, you can test MyPlayer and discover the customization options available to you . Once you have created your avatar, you can put his skills to the test during a match.

For those who do not have the chance to play the demo, the wait will not be very long because NBA 2K20 will be released on September 6.

Aliens arrive at Two Point Hospital in a new DLC

The spiritual successor of Theme Hospital seems to be doing quite well. Two Point Hospital already lets you try and cure the most hilarious and crazy illnesses all over the world but it seems that the medical treatment simulator has become so famous that its popularity has reached the outer space. Medical tourism is something that already happens in the real world, so why wouldn’t it be happening in Two Point Hospital?

Developer Two Point Studios has announced that the Close Encounters DLC will be adding three new hospitals for you to manage in Two Point County. Goldpan, Camoflage Falls, and Chasm 24 will be three new locations where you will be able to put your management skills to test. Building and managing a hospital on each of those locations implies that you will have to face new administrative challenges, and even if curing the citizens will still be your priority you will also need to make the hospital a thriving business.

Thirty-four brand new illnesses are afflicting the population in the new areas, and you will have to come up with new machines and methods to treat them. Maybe they have something to do with a huge ball of fire that was seen in the sky not to long ago? There are rumors of very strange-looking people that are visiting the area lately, and they may visit your hospital for treatment too. It doesn’t matter where your patients are coming from, you will have to try your best to cure them and make them pay for it.

Two Point Hospital – Close Encounters

The Close Encounters DLC for Two Point Hospital is launching on August 29 for PC. Unlike the two previous Two Point Hospital expansions, Bigfoot and Pebberly Island, the contents of Close Encounters won’t be included in the console version of the game when it launches later this year. Feel free to visit our comparator to find the best prices for the game anytime.

A new video showcasing Shenmue III gameplay is out

It seems that all the drama that we have seen during the last months regarding the launch of Shenmue III is finally over. The release of the game on Epic Game Store instead of Steam and the subsequent complaints coming from the players that expected to play it on Valve’s platform have been going on for a few weeks. Ys Net and Deep Silver rapidly announced that they would be refunding the money to those that helped to fund the game but don’t want to play the game on a different platform than Steam or don’t want to wait for a whole year after launch until Shenmue III is available there. We have seen this happening on other games after that but it seems that people are finally getting used to epic Games trying to secure a spot for their shop in the market.

We can move forward now and see more of the highly anticipated third installment of the Shenmue saga. We can now learn a bit more of the daily life of Ryo Hazuki in the mountains of Guilin, China, by watching a new video.

As Ryo continues searching for the murderer of his father, this time in a foreign country, our favorite martial artist will have to keep improving his kung fu in order to gain strength and claim his revenge. Fighting in arenas against all king of opponents with different combat styles seem to be one of the best ways for him to hone his skills. But there is more than fighting in Shenmue III, and the little joys of the daily life in China can also come in the form of arcade mini-games or the smile of a lady, even if you have to be careful because danger can be around any corner and you might end receiving a severe beating.

Ryo playing mini-games in Shenmue III

If you are one of those that have been waiting 18 years for the next chapter in the series, we are sure that the least you care about is what digital download platform you will have to use when you play Shenmue III. The graphics look great, martial arts are present everywhere, and you will continue the story of Ryo; what else could you ask for?

Shenmue III will launch on November 19 for PlayStation 4 and Windows PC on the Epic Games Store.

Metro: Exodus expands its content with The Two Colonels DLC

It’s been already six months since Metro Exodus launched and it was about time that we were getting more content for this first-person shooting adventure from 4A Games. The first DLC for the game is already available with the name of The Two Colonels and it offers us the possibility of exploring a new location, the ghost town Novosibirsk, or more like what’s left of it.

The Two Colonels expansion follows the story of Colonel Khlebnikov as he travels to meet his son, Kyrill. But you won’t be experiencing his story in the first person. You will play as Colonel Miller and retrace Khlebnikov’s steps one year later. Discovering what happened in the tunnels under Novosibirsk and how he ended his days will require a lot of effort on your part because the place is full of radiation, mutants, and all kinds of dangers. You will find claustrophobic environments and a linear progression that will remind you of previous installments in the Metro series, but the story will keep you busy for a while and you will get to use a flamethrower to burn your enemies to your heart’s content.

The Two Colonels – The new flamethrower

The events in the expansion take place prior to the arrival of the Aurora and its crew at the place so it will allow you to learn what happened after the bombs dropped, causing a situation that ultimately led the survivors to succumb to despair and madness.

The Two Colonels DLC for Metro Exodus is available on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation 4. You can purchase it separately or as part of Metro Exodus Expansion Pass. It’s also been announced that a second expansion with the name of Sam’s Story will arrive early 2020. It will follow the perilous journey of a former US Marine called Sam that is trying to return to his homeland.

Xbox Play Anywere

Introduced two years ago, the Play Anywhere service allows you to play both your Xbox One and your PC with the same game. This allows you to play your favorite games from your couch, but also wherever you want on your PC while keeping your backups from one platform to another. ANot all games are compatible with Play Anywhere, the catalog currently has a little more than forty games. To view the eligible games, the complete list can be found at this address.

This service, completely free without taking into account the purchase price of the game, works exclusively with games in digital version. It’s good to know also that the Gold subscription is not required, and anyone with an active silver account can benefit from Play Anywhere. You must, of course, be logged in on the same account from one platform to another. The service works on all Xbox One models, including the One S, as long as the console is up to date. As for the PC, you need to have Windows 10 and the Anniversary update. In 2018, a priori, this update should be already in most PCs, if it is not the case, take a look at your settings. In addition, an internet connection is essential to be able to benefit from the service.

Now that we have seen the requirements, how does it work? Well, it’s very simple. You must, of course, buy an eligible game, for example, ReCore, one of the first compatible games when the service launched (a very good game, by the way, I recommend it). I repeat: the game must be a digital version! In our comparator, you can easily find eligible games with the Play Anywhere logo. Once the code/CD key in your possession, two solutions are available to you: activate it on PC, or on Xbox One.

Try Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for free this weekend

Gamescom 2019 is leaving a very good taste in our mouths. Plenty of announcements and reveals are happening already and we expect more to come until the event finishes next Saturday. On the occasion of the event, we will even get to play to some of the most anticipated titles that will release in the following months. That is the case of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. During the Opening Night Live conference at the Gamescom, it was announced that there will be an alpha test this weekend. All PlayStation 4 owners will be able to give a try to the upcoming installment in the Call of Duty series from August 23 to 25.

During Call of Duty: Modern Warfare alpha all participants will be able to experience the Gunfight Mode that was revealed not too long ago. This 2v2 multiplayer competitive mode is a new feature that will be appearing for the first time in the series. In this mode, two pairs of players fight in very small maps in rounds of 40 seconds. The first team that gets 6 victories wins the match. If the timer ends without a team being eliminated during any round a flag will appear in the middle of the scenario and whoever secures it will win the round. Both teams are given the same randomized weapon loadout at the beginning of every round so you will know what to expect but your skill with the different weapons and your ability to adapt your gameplay to multiple scenarios will be very important. Also, the minimap will be turned off in this mode, so be ready to pay attention to what’s happening around you and communicate with your partner if you want to have a chance of winning.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – Gunfight mode

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare alpha will allow players to fight in five different maps, including Pine, King, Stack, and two maps never played before: Docks and Speedball.

This alpha will be an awesome opportunity of trying Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer for the first time and it will be available for free on PlayStation 4. You won’t even need a PS+ subscription to participate.
