The next entry in the Anno franchise has been announced, and while it takes us back in time, the year still adds up to nine: Anno 1800. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the world was entering the industrial age with industrialization, diplomacy, and discovery. This means players will get to create massive cities while exploring and settling new lands.

Currently the game is expected to release in Winter 2018, so more than a year away, but you can get involved sooner. The developers, Ubisoft Blue Byte have also announced the creation of Anno Union, a new community initiative that will give players the opportunity to influence development. Those in Anno Union will get to see exclusive content, the latest news, receive development insights, a look at behind the scenes content, and have an opportunity to play the game early. With feedback requests, votes on features, taking part in play tests, and the ability to create content for the game, players will get to help shape the future of the franchise.

Author: Guest_Jim_*


With the launch date of Absolver approaching, we are getting some information on what will be coming post-release, and a look at its multiplayer features. Absolver is an online melee action game and with a new trailer we are seeing how some of the online features will work. All players will start exploring the plains of Adal alone, but will encounter both AI opponents and live players. When coming across a live player, they may engage in some friendly sparring, an actual PvP fight, or join together for some cooperative PvE fun, with up to three players. Players can learn moves from each other when playing cooperatively. Also more advanced players will be able to make their own combat schools for others to join, effectively making them a mentor.

Starting about one to two months after release, the first of the free content updates should start releasing. The first update has been announced already and is to answer the wishes of the current testing community. The early players were requesting 3 versus 3 combat modes, ranked matches, and a spectator mode. These three features will be among the first added to the game through the free updates, along with new combat styles and moves from players' combat decks.

Absolver releases on August 29 for PC and PlayStation 4.

On August 24 Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation will be receiving its v2.4 update, which will include many changes, including the long awaited support for Vulkan. This was already the first game to support DirectX 12 (when the base game, Ashes of the Singularity, launched) and now it will be the first title to support both DX12 and Vulkan simultaneously. Vulkan’s support for multiple operating systems means Windows 7 and Windows 8 users will be able to use it. The benchmarking tool is also seeing an update with v2.4.

Of course there are more changes than those, including UI changes resulting from a full menu rework, updates to scenarios and all three campaigns, rebalancing, and increased modding support. To thank the multiplayer community, a free Co-op Map Pack DLC is also going to be released on August 24.

It may have been released over a year ago, but Ubisoft is still working on The Division as it will soon be getting Update1.7. With this update comes several new features, including Global Events, Commendations, survival improvements, new gear and customization options, and Encrypted Caches.

With Global Events the update is meant to challenge players in new ways, and for those who want the difficulty to be even higher, additional modifiers can be activated on some missions and incursions. The first global event, Outbreak, starts tomorrow and ends on August 22. Commendations build on what had been feats, giving players a series of tasks to complete and rewards for completion. The survival improvements are meant to allow players to reach higher scores and bring the reward economy in line with other activities, while the new gear includes 'classified' gear sets with tweaked stats. There will also be new face masks and arm patches for customizing your character, but if you want to go deeper you can visit a barbershop to change your character's looks.

This update is the first of two free updates for Year 2 of the game.

Today two characters were announced as pre-order bonuses for Volition's and Deep Silver's upcoming Agents of Mayhem. One agent is Lazarus, a merging of woman and machine, who still loves humanity, even though she has evolved beyond it. The other is Johnny Gat from the Saints Row franchise, though with a retconned backstory. Instead of being a member of the Saints gang, Johnny achieved the rank of Lieutenant in Seoul's police department. After awakening from a year-long coma and finding the police had been replaced by robots, he needed a new place to call home. His love of guns and wanton destruction (and hate of robots) made him a perfect fit for MAYHEM.

Lazarus is a pre-order bonus character for digital purchases while Johnny Gat is a GameStop exclusive pre-order bonus. Agents of Mayhem releases on August 15 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Microsoft Streaming Service Beam Renamed to Mixer

Author: Guest_Jim_*

It might not be as popular as Twitch or YouTube is for livestreaming video games, but the Microsoft-owned streaming service Beam has gotten a fairly significant update today, including a name change to Mixer. One of the key features of Beam has been its ultra-low latency design, so there is very little lag between when the streamer does something and when a viewer sees it. There are even systems to allow the audience to interact with the streamer and directly influence the game, and this is why the name Mixer was decided on, as the service is meant to bring people together.

Beyond the name change, Beam/Mixer has received some new features, including Co-Streaming and the Mixer Create beta app for Android and iOS. With co-streaming up to four streamers can have their streams combined into one viewer experience, with a single chat. For example, this would mean a party of four in Left 4 Dead could all stream their gameplay and the audience could watch all of them from a single page, with a centralized chat. There is no requirement that the four streamers are playing the same game though. The Mixer Create beta app allows people to broadcast from their smartphone, but it will be in a later update that streaming gameplay from your device will be added.

In addition to these changes there is also the start of Channel One, a moderated channel that is always streaming, addition of the Mixer Page to the Xbox One dashboard, the Mixer NYC studio at the flagship Microsoft Store, and a Mixer celebration going on today with an interactive fireworks show at the end.

Instead of launching in Fall 2017, its launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 is now slated for Spring 2018. This will be the first Rockstar title to be developed from the ground up for the latest consoles, and it is this reason the company cites for the delay.

While this may be disappointing news for many, we can still expect to see details of it released this Summer and along with this announcement is a new batch of screenshots. There is still no word on a PC version of the game.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on that day, across North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. In this title, players will be fighting against the rise of crime in South Park as superheroes. The New Kid, the playable character, will get to discover the backstory of their superhero identity, assemble their costumes, and harness fart-based powers. The game also features a new combat system and a revamped looting and crafting system.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole will come in four editions: Standard, Gold, Steelbook Gold, and Collector's. All purchases before January 31, 2018 will also come with The Stick of Truth, and some partners will grant this immediately if you pre-purchase. Pre-orders will also receive an exclusive in-game assistant, Towelie: Your Gaming Bud. At key locations, Towelie: Your Gaming Bud will provide advice and commentary.
