It has long been assumed that the free to play multiplayer deathmatch game, ‘RE: Verse’ was launching alongside ‘Resident Evil Village’ on May 7, but Capcom has confirmed that this isn’t the case after all.
While Game Pass often hogs the spotlight when it comes to Xbox (and for good reason), the companies still put out four games every month that are free for Xbox Live Gold members, and May has four with a distinct strategy theme to them.
Sony are slowly ramping up their promotion for PlayStation 5 titles, and after ‘Returnal’ is out this month, the next big game is ‘Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart’, coming in June, and the people behind PlayStation have announced a State of Play special for Rift Apart, and it’s coming this week.
It seems that the team at Xbox are pushing ahead with getting new multiplayer experiences to be free on Xbox on release day, and the next game getting the game pass treatment is ‘Knockout City’ from EA and Velan Games.
Announced right at the very tail end of the most recent ‘Resident Evil’ showcase, Capcom unveiled ‘Resident Evil 4 VR’, but it looked early in development, and there weren’t too many details aside from the fact it is coming to Oculus Quest 2. But it turns out it’s coming way sooner than we all thought.
Who could have predicted the success of ‘Genshin Impact’? Borrowing an aesthetic vibe from ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’, this free to play game took the world by storm in 2020, and is now coming to PlayStation 5 with a native next-version, and we’ve now got a date and details to get excited about.
After taking some heat for a proposed price increase a few months ago, Microsoft and Team Xbox not only went back on the idea of charging more for the service, but reacted to criticisms that their competition didn’t charge people to play free to play games, but we didn’t know when these changes would be coming into play. But it’s official: as of right now, free to play games are… well, they’re free to play!
It’s time for another bi-monthly update regarding Xbox Game Pass, and yet another classic title is coming to the service, only this time it’s a remake of a classic game from the Xbox and PlayStation 2 era, with ‘Destroy All Humans’, the 2020 remake, hitting Game Pass on April 29th.
