PS5 Games Showcase June 11
After Sony rescheduled PS5 games due to rallies in the United States, the new date for the event remained unknown. It's not long to wait, because we will see the long-awaited nextgen projects soon on June 11th.
Sony reported this on Twitter. You will be able to drool over the following PS5 projects on Twitch on June 11 at 11:00 pm Moscow time.
New Cyberpunk 2077 Details
CD Projekt Red talked to the German edition of GameStar, where they revealed new details about Cyberpunk 2077 in podcast format. Despite the fact that access to this information is paid, it has already been leaked to the public. Below are the most interesting facts that enthusiasts have translated from German:
Some more interesting information about the creation process itself. For example, during the quarantine period, the studio sent out more than 700 PCs to its employees to work remotely. Also, employees knew that the game would be represented by Keanu Reeves at E3 2019 a year earlier. They are proud that the information has not leaked online.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on September 17 on PC, XOne and PS4. It is not clear yet about the release on Stadia, but apparently the game will be released in the service later.
Microsoft has denied rumors that July show will be postponed to August
As part of the XSX advertising campaign, Microsoft hosts events every month to celebrate its next generation console. However, not so long ago, news editor of the VentureBeat portal Jeff Grubb said that allegedly the Microsoft ones had moved the June event to August. According to him, on the show on the 9th and 10th, we were supposed to be shown the budget version of the Xbox Series X - Lockhart. There are two reasons for this: the first is the protests in the USA, and the second is that the company does not want to arrange this presentation for some reason before Sony holds its own. He is also confident that Microsoft will be able to replace their event with something else.
As it turned out, no one is going to replace, and even more so to transfer. The next shows will be on schedule, Aaron Greenberg, Xbox General Manager of Marketing, said on Twitter.
How can you understand such a dissonance? Perhaps even though we were promised monthly news, their format may be different, Grubb meant that initially we should have seen something this month that we will only see in August, and in June we will be shown something different. So, in the comments to his post, people notice that earlier Greenberg promised that in the June plans the company has something that is not Inside Xbox.
Classic return - Command & Conquer
A reissue of the classic RTS - Command & Conquer. It was announced not by anyone, but by the leader of the Brotherhood of Nod - Kane, whose role was played by Joe Kukan. The remake compilation includes Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert and three DLCs: Covert Ops, Counterstrike, and Aftermath. The game features updated graphics, 4K support, new multiplayer, map editor, over 100 story missions, and seven hours of in-game soundtrack. The collection is already available on Steam and Origins.
Despite the fact that the fans of the game are not so many, given its venerable age, it scattered in huge numbers. In just a couple of hours after the release of the game, it exceeded 42 thousand players online!
This can be called a real triumph, given that the genre of real-time strategies is going through hard times, and the original game itself was released 25 years ago. He is far from selling AAA new products, but within the framework of the listed facts, this is amazing.
Journalists and gamers alike point out that this is a great reissue that respects the old mechanics but also improves on them.
An early build of Dead Island 2 has gone online
Dead Island 2 is still in development, but it is not clear if it will be completed. And if it does, when? However, already now you can play an early build of the game, which by some miracle ended up online.
He was revealed by Twitter user GarnetSunset, who introduced himself as a cloud security researcher. He says that this build is in the public domain. It was created in 2015, when the game was still being developed by the creators of Spec Ops The Line - studio Yager.
In terms of content, it has several times, content from the DLC, as well as locations in Malibu and San Francisco. Somewhere on Reddit there is now a link to a build that can be played, but we are warned that in some cases, instead of playing, something bad can be slipped.
Recall that Dead Island 2 is a long-term construction, which has been in development for over 7 years. The game was first shown to us in 2014 at E3. Since then, it has changed more than once and managed to change three developers. The first, as already mentioned, were Yager, then the development went under the wing of Sumo Digital, and after them the game was transferred to Dambuster Studios. And although it may seem that the project will eventually be canceled, Deep Silver claims that it is very important for her, so we conclude that we will all see the game this way, and most likely already on the next generation of consoles.
This was all news from the beginning of the week, stay tuned.
