Rockstar has opened its corral and released a buckin’ new trailer for cowboy-’em-up sequel Red Dead Redemption 2, featuring a company of ne’er do gooders ne’er doin’ good, and – oh, who’s that? I think I recognise this one, sheriff.
State of Decay 2 is out later this month, and Undead Labs will be running a technical beta to try to avoid launch day misery. You can sign up for it now, although all the Xbox One slots have already been filled, so only PC people need apply.
It’s almost FIFA World Cup time again, and EA is generously bringing the tournament to FIFA 18 as part of a free update before the end of the month. We’re getting the full World Cup experience, with all 32 licensed teams, official stadiums, and a FIFA Ultimate Team content update too. The standalone FIFA World Cup games have always felt like a brazen cash-in, if you ask me – something that could have been added via an update like this instead. So, well played, EA.
Bandai Namco has confirmed that ahead of its launch on 25 May, a Dark Souls Remastered network test is scheduled on Xbox One and PS4 next weekend, featuring the game’s Undead Parish location. Before you praise the sun, though, the network test is going live during US peak time, which is a much more inconvenient (but perhaps also much more contextually appropriate?) 03:00-06:00 local time on Saturday and Sunday morning. The client is already available to download, but only until 03:00 on Wednesday 9 May, so get it now before it despawns and those souls are gone forever.
Greetings NAGolizies, and thanks for coming back for This Week In Gaming. I’ve been away all weekend in the arse-end of Mpumalanga, but I raced back just in time to give you your abbreviated dose of news from the week. So if you’re catching up on Monday morning, hello, and I hope you took the day off.
This week’s Mosh Pit was written with feverish anticipation of the coming long weekend, because OBVIOUSLY it’s the opening week for Avengers: Infinty War. Duh! We’re allowed to get a bit distracted whenever another MCU movie arrives on our shores. This week we take a quick peek at Samsung’s new 970-series SSD family, the critically-acclaimed A Quiet Place, which is also showing this week, and some sweet merch you can buy for yourself, your friends, your mom, or anyone really because it’s that stylish.
Also, quick PSA: don’t forget that Tuesday is also a public holiday! If you end up walking into work and wonder why everyone else is gone and start panicking because this is how zombie movies start, well… go home and play something. You’ve earned it. It is Freedom Day after all.
Only the sixth man to have the job in the company’s 128-year history, Pokemon Company board member Shuntaro Furukawa has stepped in to replace Tatsumi Kimishima, who’s been holding the reins for the last two and a half years.
