Modern Warfare 2 beta goes live for everyone in September

modern warfare 2 open beta september-min

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will have its beta go live next month. As announced at the Call of Duty League Championships, the beta will be playable in September. The beta will provide early insight into its gameplay ahead of the game’s official launch on October 28.

As previously expected, PlayStation will get access earlier than other platforms. Both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players will get to take part in weekend one. Those that pre-order Modern Warfare 2 can play the beta from September 16 to 22 whilst the open beta starts out on September 18 and ends on the same date.

PC and Xbox players will have to wait a little longer. Those two platforms don’t get access to the beta until September 22 or September 24 if you don’t pre-order. Access to the beta for these platforms will continue until September 26. This second weekend will also be accessible to PlayStation consoles meaning that PlayStation owners who pre-order will get ten days of beta access.

PlayStation having exclusive early access may seem confusing. After all, didn’t Microsoft acquire Activision Blizzard? Currently the deal is still being approved and until the green light is given Microsoft has no say on what Activision does. Also, Activision has made it clear that it intends to honor all existing deals regardless of the acquisition. Until PlayStation’s exclusivity deal runs out Call of Duty will continue to receive PlayStation exclusive content.

What to expect

The Modern Warfare 2 beta will have a decent variety of content. Activision has already confirmed that it will feature “a robust multiplayer experience going beyond the Core 6v6 experience”. That’s PR talk for maps and game modes that aren’t just traditional 6v6. Plus, the beta will show off the game’s progression system and even give rewards in the full game to those that take part.

Xbox is offering a family plan for Game Pass Ultimate subscribers

game pass family plan featured image-min

Microsoft is running tests for a new family plan. This family plan will be accessible to Game Pass Ultimate subscribers and looks to make the service more consumer friendly. The idea is that Ultimate subscribers will be able to add family members to share their membership with.

Right now, the testing is limited. Only Xbox Insiders from Colombia and Ireland have access to it. Those eligible can add up to four people to their subscription. Exactly why these markets were picked to try first is unknown but it’s likely that Microsoft wanted to start small. It’s good to make sure the system works as intended before rolling it out to a wider audience.

Unfortunately, this isn’t as simple as it first seems. The current version of the Xbox family plan does not offer one day of Game Pass Ultimate membership for one day of family membership. Instead, a full month of Game Pass Ultimate equates to around 18 days of group membership.

If this model is finalized then the group membership will cost 66% more than the standard package. With Game Pass Ultimate priced at $14.99 a month, the group package could cost close to $24.99 a month. That’s an eye watering $300 a year for a single service.

In Microsoft’s defense paying for four separate Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions would cost $720 a year. When compared to that the Game Pass Family Plan offers a much better deal. Plus, you do get an awful lot with the subscription.

Game Pass Ultimate

There are a lot of perks to being a Game Pass Ultimate subscriber. You get access to over 100 different games and day one access to all first party titles. That includes upcoming games like Forza Motorsport and Naraka: Bladepoint. The subscription also provides Xbox Live Gold membership letting you play online and all the benefits that comes with EA Play.

Persona 5 Royal will come with all 45 DLC packs on PC Game Pass

Persona 5 Royal will come bundled will all 45 DLC packs when it arrives on PC Game Pass. The PC port of Persona 5 was revealed at the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022. Alongside a Steam release, it will also make its way onto PC Game Pass.

In what form it would come to game pass was unclear though. After all, Persona 5 Royal has a lot of DLC, and buying it all separately is expensive. Thankfully, Persona fans won’t have to worry about that. All of the popular JRPG’s DLC is included as part of its integration into PC Game Pass. That’s over $70 worth of DLC for just $10 a month.

Currently, publisher Atlus has only confirmed this deal for Windows. It is still unclear if the Steam version of Persona 5 Royal will come with all of the DLC like its PC Game Pass counterpart. Windows may be being used as an umbrella term to cover all PC versions or this deal is exclusive to PC Game Pass.

But what do you even get with the DLC? For the most part, Royal’s DLC consists of various cosmetics. These cosmetics include costume packs, soundtracks, and customizable BGM. However, PC Game Pass subscribers will also gain access to the challenge battle mode which is the most impactful piece of DLC for Persona 5 Royal. In challenge battle mode you go head-to-head with the protagonists from past Persona games.

Persona on PC

Persona 5 Royal is making its way to PC on October 21. It was launched as a PlayStation exclusive in 2019 but Atlus has now opted to port it across. Following Persona 5 Royal’s port is Persona 3 Portable which will also make its way to PC. However, a specific release date for Persona 3 has not yet been given.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction | PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X

TOM CLANCYs RAINBOW SIX EXTRACTION

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction is an upcoming tactical shooter game by Ubisoft. It is a cooperative multiplayer game based on Rainbow Six Siege (2015) in which players have to work together to kill Archaeans, parasite-like aliens. On January 20, 2022, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction will be available for players on Microsoft Windows, PS4, PS5, Google Stadia, Amazon Luna, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X and S.

Extraction is a three-player cooperative multiplayer game. Infiltrating an alien-infested place has to be done by operators. They also have to perform goals, including gaining intel, collecting samples, and removing resources from computers. The enemy placement and the locations of the goals are created procedurally. If the enemy takes down an operator, they will become missing in action, and players will not be able to play as them until they are retrieved.

Players can pick operators from a pool of 18 operators. And each operator has their own set of weapons and gadgets. Pulse possesses a heartbeat sensor that allows him to see enemies far across the barriers. At the same time, Alibi has the power to confuse the enemies with a holographic decoy. In order to succeed in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction, players have to collaborate and cooperate with one another. A ping system in the game allows the players to reveal hostile danger and resource locations to other players.

There are unusual varieties of the regular variants, like the rooters, who may slow the player down, and spikers, who can shoot sharp missiles from their bodies. Extraction moves at a slower speed than other cooperative multiplayer games. The players would not regenerate with this health, and resources and ammo are rare.

Rainbow Six Extraction is a spin-off by Ubisoft Montreal’s Rainbow Six Siege, released in 2015. According to Jason Schreier, the Extraction came from a project called Pioneer, first teased in Watch Dogs 2. The game is based on the 2018 Siege time-limited game mode Outbreak, in which players have to fight the hostile aliens in New Mexico. Extraction was designed to be a fun experience for those who do not want to play a multiplayer video game with other people. The developers hoped that making Siege characters available in Extraction would attract Siege players to the game and make Extraction a useful entry point for new players.

Extraction is a first-person shooter that combines the features of Rainbow Six with a horde mode shooter. This game also focuses on the objectives and surviving the encounters with the aliens, rather than employing firearms to shoot down enemies like in most other games. The developers thought that instead of being “entrenched and shooting and mow down hundreds of enemies,” the characters in the game should ambush the enemies.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine was the initial title for the game Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction, which was intended to be released in 2020 for Windows, Xbox One, and PS4. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the game was delayed twice because of development issues. It was again postponed from July until January 20, 2022.

The multiplayer mode in Call of Duty warzone is a thrill-filled game where you play in groups of three. While you may be teamed up with strangers online, connecting and playing with your friends is also possible.

Furthermore, you can also use other means, including Xbox Live Gamertag, PlayStation Network Online ID, or Battle.net ID.

●      Requesting a new friend to join your team?

If you want to add a friend to your list, then take the following steps. Simply open your social menu and scroll to where you have the Add Friends option, usually to the left. Clicking on it will redirect you to a page where you are to type in their Activision ID. After you click on Send Invite, your friend will receive a friend request.

To accept a friend request, simply open the social menu. Navigate to, and open the Friend requests tab, where you’ll find both sent and received requests. Simply locate your friend’s ID and click on the Accept button, then you both can rock together.

Conclusion

Playing with a team is important, but playing with a team you are comfortable with is the bomb. This is because the difficulty you face in Call of duty Warzone requires a huge amount of synergy and teamwork. So playing alongside a squad of friends is ideal, as you can effectively communicate. This article has the information you need to help players who don’t know how to go about creating their own teams.

Bugs Bunny and LeBron James want you to make the next Space Jam game

Space Jam game

Microsoft, Bugs Bunny, and LeBron James. That’s probably not a set of names you expected to see together but here we are. As part of Space Jam’s marketing campaign, Xbox wants franchise fans to create a game for them. More specifically, they want an arcade styled retro game in the style of many 80s classics.

The new competition has some official rules that you may want to read over. The general idea though is that you send in a proposal with the genre, a key image, and a short description. The description of your game proposal must be less than 500 words to be eligible.

Your dream Space Jam game

Space Jam A New Legacy competition prizeA New Legacy is the sequel to the original 1996 classic film Space Jam. The premise sees a team of basketball stars have their powers stolen by evil monsters. Back then it was up to Michael Jordan and his Disney cast teammates to get them back. But the sequel is a little different focusing on LeBron James and his son Bronny.

Having the opportunity to create your very own game is not something many people get to do. But two lucky winners of this competition will have their proposals brought to life. They will be converted into mini-games in the official Space Jam: A New Legacy game releasing next year.

Also, competition winners will have their names added to the game’s official credits. And if that’s not enough for you, there’s even a set of LeBron James memorabilia up for grabs. Even sports brand Nike are getting behind the campaign and offering various goodies for would be winners.

The announcement rounds off by confirming that Microsoft and Warner Bros. have “more exciting news,” in the works. So be sure to keep an eye out for any future updates on Space Jam game if you’re interested. As for the movie itself, that’s set for a July 21 release in cinemas.

Microsoft is cutting the Xbox One X to make room for the next generation

After just two years of service Microsoft is already set to cut the Xbox One X from it production library. In an interview with the Verge, a Microsoft Spokesperson confirmed the American tech giant is solely focused on its next-gen console. To make room for the Xbox Series X, both the Xbox One X and Xbox One S digital will no longer be manufactured.

However, the spokesperson did reassure fans that the standard Xbox One S will still be supported. So, going back and playing any Xbox One games should be easy enough. Equally, we already know that the Xbox Series X will support backward compatibility. So, you probably won’t need your Xbox One anyway once the Series X drops.

Microsoft says farewell the Xbox One X

xbox series xThis decision makes sense when you think about it. The Xbox One X is the enhanced version of the original console designed to support 4K gaming. However, once the Xbox Series X drops the former will effectively become an inferior version of the latter. Rather than supporting an outdated console, it would be better to go all in on its next-gen platform instead.

Interestingly, reports around the industry suggest the Series X won’t be Microsoft’s only next-gen console. In fact, it seems likely that a cheaper, less powerful alternative is in the works. Rumored to be called the Series S, it would offer an option to upgrade for gamers who don’t want to cough up the Series X’s full fee.

That would certainly be an understandable decision too. Although an exact price tag hasn’t been announced, it’s possible the Series X could cost over $500. If so, a cheaper alternative may be necessary to keep the Xbox brand’s mass appeal.

Be sure to keep an eye out as the Xbox Series X is expected to drop sometime this year. It should be interesting to see which between the Series X and PlayStation 5 come out on top. Be sure to let us know in the comments if you think this is Microsoft’s generation to lose or if Sony are the favorites.

Video Games That Tackle Social Issues

Ellie and Riley

Video Games – we all enjoy it. Whether you’re young or old, a student or an employee looking to pass the time with a little fun; we all enjoy video games. It is a means for us, an outlet, to do the things we can not do in real life; to experience the things that are not readily accessible to most of us. Video games also help us understand different types of people by having diverse and – for some games – very realistic characters. But, not a lot of us see the underlying meanings behind the video games we play and enjoy. The implications are hidden behind the realistic graphics, the heart-warming soundtrack, and the innovative gameplay. Here is a list of some of the video games that tackle different social issues. Sit back and let us dwell deeper into the meaning of these well-known video games.

War“This War of Mine” 

This War of Mine

Let’s start with a very well-known topic – war. We’ve all heard of different stories about the war. And war has been a choice of topic or genre by a lot of video games. But, the creators of This War Of Mine, 11 Bit Studios, approached this genre in an innovative and immersive way. In this game, you don’t play as a well-trained-muscle-torn super-soldier equipped with a planetary cannon. Here, you play as a civilian caught very deep in the war-devastated fictional city of Pogoren, Graznavia. You will struggle, because ‘gather’ is putting it lightly, for food. Scavenge for medicines or supplies and try your very best not to bump into soldiers or other hungry survivors.

The day and night cycle plays a significant role in the game mechanics. During the day, you’ll be managing your hideout in a very detailed manner; while keeping an eye on that sniper who’s not letting you out. When darkness falls, you’ll be sneaking into buildings and areas for supplies; while avoiding being killed by other people seeking means for survival. You will also be making a lot of moral decisions; whether you’ll kill that one annoying person to save the whole group or watch as everyone slowly suffers. Add to that, the beautifully-made charcoal-style aesthetics; and you have a game that will leave you thinking and reflecting about war and its effect on the human soul.

Privacy“Watch Dogs 1 and  2″ 

Watch Dogs 1 and 2

Have you ever felt like being watched? Like Big Brother is always around you, lurking in the dark, studying and recording your every move? We are living in the age and time of information and the improvement in technology is far from slowing down. Also, the number of people uploading all of their information on the internet is increasing. This is why black hats are more eager to steal any sensitive information they can get their hands on.

Watch Dogs, is a video game about hackers waging war on the government for manipulating information and invading the privacy of their people. This video game does not really tackle or explain ‘hacking’ in detail; but it shows what hackers can do with the information that the people, themselves, gave out there on the internet. This game is a sweet reminder that internet privacy is sometimes just an illusion to make us feel safe. It also reminds us that the internet is a very dangerous place to be placing all of our information.

Social Difference – Multiple Video Games (Witcher SeriesLife is Strange, The Last of Us, other video games)

The Witcher Hunt Series

So what if you have white hair, feline eyes, are sterile, and have high resistance, if not immune, to diseases? So what if you have pointy ears and live longer than humans? We are all living things and we can co-exist if given the chance and consideration.

The Witcher series, which is set in the world of Temeria, is flooded with racism and discrimination. Elves and Dwarves are discriminated against for not being human, despite the humans being the invaders of the land. Basically, humans are the foreigners and, yet, they are pushing away and abusing the original inhabitants of the land. Luckily, Geralt, despite being discriminated against himself, acts as the median between the two worlds. That of humans and of ‘non-humans’. Geralt does not make any rash decisions when doing a job. He investigates first and looks for a way for both parties to work together. With an exception, there is no consideration to be given for evil-tainted individuals, human or non-human.

Video Games: Life is Strange

Life is Strange is a video game that takes place in a small town called Arcadia Bay. A place where a lot of things happen. Including alcoholism, bullying, and child abuse. Child abuse is a social issue that’s very rampant nowadays; this video game shows the whole issue from a different perspective. You play the game and see the world through the eyes of a teenager with the ability to control time, Max Caulfield. The game also includes other issues like teenage pregnancy, social anxiety, and brats who think like they are on top of everyone. Max’s story is also a depiction of how it feels like to be bullied for being “not among the famous”. This is a game definitely worth checking out if you want a relaxing soundtrack and a story that is full of twists.

Video Games: The Last of Us Left Behind

The Last of Us: Left Behind, sparked controversy when Ellie and Riley hinted quite a number of times about their feelings for each other. We all remember that photobooth scene, right? How about that scene where they dance to a tune and then unknowingly attract a horde of infected? All of these hints led to one conclusion and a lot of people were shocked. Some related and found themselves in the position of the protagonists in terms of personal identity; some accepted the fact and were happy for the pair; but, for some…they just do not approve of the whole charade. The relationship they have and the characters themselves don’t actually raise an issue; but the different ways people responded to the writing of the game, present an issue on sexual discrimination.

There you go. Here are just some of the video games that tackle some of the issues we are facing up to this day. There are still a lot of games that depict issues not mentioned here. If you have played a game with an interesting theme, comment them down below, and let’s have a talk. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Rare Reveals Canceled Conker Game As Project Spark DLC Also Cancelled

It’s no wonder that Conker the Squirrel drinks as much as he does given the amount of bad luck he’s had.  After debuting in the cult classic Conker’s Bad Fur Day at the tail-end of the Nintendo 64’s lifespan and having it remade for the original Xbox as Conker: Live and Reloaded, things have only gone from bad to worse and back again for Rare’s adorable little jerk.  On September 28th, 2015, Rare revealed concepts and artwork for a new Conker game that was planned to be developed for the Xbox after the release of Live and Reloaded.  Called Conker: Gettin’ Medieval, the game would have had a focus on multiplayer and set in medieval times with various reimaginings of characters from the Conker series.  The game wouldn’t have been focused on Conker himself, but rather the world that the Conker series is built around with its representation of Death taking the central role instead.  Perhaps the game would have gone more into the background of the Conker series, such as explaining why the Panther King has such a hatred of squirrels in the first place.

The reveal of this cancelled Conker game coincides with the recent cancellation of another Conker game.  Project Spark had episodic DLC based around Conker called Conker’s Big Reunion.  Along with the announcement that Project Spark will be dropping microtransactions with its next update for an entirely free model, it was also announced that the remaining episodes of Conker’s Big Reunion, along with all other episodic content planned for Project Spark, has been cancelled.  If you’ve made any purchases of or on Project Spark on or after July 28th, 2015, you can refund it for Microsoft Store credit equal to your money spent.

It’s a sad day for Conker fans, but maybe Playtonic Games can reincarnate him as Barry the Bad-Mouthed Badger or something once they’re done with Banjo-Kazooie successor Yooka-Laylee.  What are your thoughts on these two canceled Conker games?  Which would you rather have put back into development if you could?  Leave a comment below and let us know what you think.

Gaming Is Good For Me

A ‘hobby’ is defined as ‘An activity done regularly in one’s leisure time for pleasure’. Common hobbies include an ensemble of varying sport activities, the reading of books, even trainspotting is considered a hobby. However, it has come to my attention that for a noticeable number of those outside of the gaming community that playing video games is highly disregarded as a hobby. That being said, what I aim to do here is try to defend this hobby that I personally partake in and try to bring into light it’s positive aspects as I believe it has many.

gaming is good for me 1

The Lazy Hobby 

One of the primary reasons that indulging in a game is frowned upon is due to the fact that it isn’t a particularly physically demanding hobby. Strictly speaking, most gaming consoles and handhelds require the player to sit and focus on a screen. A successful game developer will aim to keep the player seated and engrossed for an extended duration of time. Does this then ultimately mean that gaming should be classed as any less of a brilliant hobby? I think that is quite unfair actually.

The Comeback

Firstly, let’s begin with the fact that although gaming as a hobby in most cases is not physical or evident in any means of activeness, mentally, games possess the ability to exercise a players mind. Games of today offer the players opportunities to gain knowledge of circumstances and eras that prior to playing would not have comprehended or taken any interest in. They allow players to put themselves into situations and ways of thinking that they would not consider themselves ever to be in. A fine example of a game that captures this ability so well is Heavy Rain (Quantic Dream). Heavy Rain falls under the genre of interactive-drama. Throughout the proceedings of the game the player plays as four vastly differing characters that are all collectively involved in the case of a serial killer known as the Origami Killer. The player is put in the position of a Father, a former police officer, a FBI profiler and a photojournalist. The game requires the player to make quick and vital decisions that have the potential to kill of main characters. Complete with interactive gameplay in the form of fast-paced action sequences and motion related actions with the controller, Heavy Rain is perfect for involving the player as if they were living out the games events for themselves. By bringing the more underrated moments of gaming in to light, we could even consider the fact that perhaps gaming ultimately becomes a more exciting way to learn.

Furthermore, in regards to the physical side to the argument, game consoles such as the Nintendo Wii, have answered such issues allowing players to use their physical being to play games. For example, Wii Sports provides players the chance to bring sporting activities to their home. Despite the odd, 40 inch television taking a battering from a Wii remote in tennis or the insatiable level of embarrassment derived from playing Just Dance at a family gathering, Nintendo Wii, Playstation Move and Xbox Kinect have answered the demand for more physical means of gaming.

Living The Story Of Many Differing Characters

Admittedly, one of the most enjoyable aspects of playing video games is the sheer span of genres, gameplay styles, settings, story lines and characters. The profound versatility video games provide is what allows it to be such a widely appreciated hobby. It offers players of all types a chance to escape from their everyday troubles, whether it be a bad day at work or a little bit of leisure to unwind. Let’s take The Last Of Us as an example. A hard day at the office followed by even a short amount of time with protagonists of The Last Of Us, Joel and Ellie is enough to A. mentally teleport you elsewhere even if only for a short while and B. Proceed to make you then realise that things could be worse, you could be surviving against an increasing population of infected on a day to day basis. The requirement for a general escape from reality is something every good hobby should offer and gaming offers just that. In addition thanks to the indefinite amount of genres it is fair to say gaming can cater for every type of player. There is no reason why is should be regarded unpleasantly.

The Last of Us™ Remastered_20140804220109

Educational

As mentioned briefly before, gaming is actually relatively educational when considering games such as the Assassins Creed franchise for instance. The Assassins Creed game series orientates itself around various historic events and is based within historic settings. It reconciles a number of radically different religious faiths and beliefs and ties them in with the story lines of the games within the series. Games such as Assassins Creed are great for bringing to the attention of the player, things they may not have known before. This enlightenment to players as a whole is just another pro to gaming.

Gaming- Associated badly?

It is possible that the more negative views and opinions aimed at gaming as a hobby may actually be derived from popular game franchises almost posing as the face of the hobby. For instance, first-person shooter franchise, Call Of Duty is at the heart of many gaming addictions. The installments within the series consist of taking part in war, mass shootings and a number of other violent activities. Although, the events within some of the series installments are of historic significance, it is apparent that the overriding feature of the series is the widely played multiplayer which results in a lot of anger and arguing among players the vast majority of the time.  This being said there is a strong possibility that the negativity posed towards gaming as a hobby could originate from associating gaming primarily with such franchises. Whether or not it is the narrow-mindedness of outsiders to the gaming community or poor means of presenting gaming is to blame, both fail to acknowledge the beauty in games such as The Last Of Us, Tomb Raider, Journey and even more recent titles such as Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture. These memorable video games not only fulfill the basic needs and requirements of a hobby, but that also allow the player to lose themselves in jaw-dropping stories that give the player the chance to explore an entire spectrum of emotions they were not accustom to prior to playing.

All In Favor

Gaming is an utterly fantastic hobby that can take a player of any age or sort and give them their rope ladder to escaping the harshness of reality for just a few hours when seemingly needed most. No, generally speaking gaming isn’t as physical as other more kindly regarded hobbies but in terms of exercising the mind and imagination, I believe that gaming should be regarded in much higher spirit than it is by so many. Here, I aimed to open discussion over the issue, not point fingers.

That said, feel free to comment your views below.
