Watch Dogs 2 is getting four-player co-op later this year

Watch Dogs 2 has lots of forthcoming add-on content, and Ubisoft has been kind enough to lay it out for us in the form of a "content roadmap". There's stuff coming as soon as April, including a new PvP team-based mode called Showdown, as well as multiplayer motocross, eKart and drone races. It's the June stuff that's most interesting though, in particular support for 4-player parties "to explore the city and play activities together". That presumably doesn't include single-player missions, but i

How to access Dark Souls 3’s The Ringed City DLC

Hey, remember how much of a pain it was to access the DLC area of the original Dark Souls? Well, From Software has mellowed over the years, and getting to Dark Souls 3's The Ringed City DLC is actually pretty easy. The second is found where the Sister Friede battle takes place in the Ashes of Ariandel area. Again, this is right behind where the player spawns at the Sister Friede bonfire:Again, spawn at the Sister Friede bonfire and just turn around. While getting to The Ringed City's new areas i

Goodbye internet privacy: U.S. House of Representatives just killed FCC privacy rules

Last week, the U.S. Senate voted along party lines to stamp out strong FCC privacy regulations introduced in 2016. The privacy framework in these rules focuses on transparency, choice, and data security, and provides heightened protection for sensitive customer information, consistent with customer expectations. The Commission also revises its current telecommunications privacy rules to harmonize today's privacy rules for all telecommunications carriers, and provides a tailored exemption from th

6 things Destiny 2 needs to be a success on PC

Now, with the sequel potentially under six months away, I want to talk about what it needs to ensure success on PC. The leaked poster mentions the beta will take place on PS4, implying similar deals can be expected for Destiny 2. Note also that this year’s Resident Evil 7 was a ‘Play Anywhere’ title, meaning saves transferred automatically between PC and XB1. As mentioned above, The Vault of Glass raid is brilliant, and arguably the thing that persuaded players to stick with Destiny. It goes wit

Attentat 1942 is a ‘historically accurate’ game about the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia

Attentat 1942 is not your typical Second World War videogame. It's a "historically accurate adventure" about the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakian territory in 1942, told from the perspective of the survivors. "The game is built on personal memories, interactive comics, and authentic footage," the Steam Greenlight page says. "You will speak to eyewitnesses, live their memories, and discover the untold story of your family." Attentat 1942 is expected to be ready for release in the third quarter

Widowmaker statue heads up the ‘new’ Blizzard Collectibles line

Blizzard has announced a swanky new line of "premium statues, replicas, and artwork" called Blizzard Collectibles, headed up by a 13.5 inch tall statue of the fearsome Overwatch assassin Widowmaker. "Our goal with Blizzard Collectibles is to produce pieces of art that capture the personality of our games, and we're excited to share these premium items with gamers and collectors worldwide." We're not talking about Tracer leggings here: The Widowmaker statue, like the Reaper and Tracer figures, go

Day of Infamy does justice to the classic WWII mod that inspired it

Day of Infamy, a standalone WWII rework of modern combat game Insurgency, is worthy of the 'Day of' moniker—which in this case references Roosevelt's Pearl Harbor speech, but also tips its hat to the classic Half-Life mod and eventual standalone game Day of Defeat. For a more modern comparison, because Day of Infamy does play differently than its DoD cousin, it's pulling me in like the launches of Red Orchestra 2 and Rising Storm did. That level of pressure has been rare in Day of Infamy so far—

The ethics of emulation: how creators, the community, and the law view console emulators

It's bad for the ecosystem because closed source alternatives could end up having an advantage on the open source alternatives. Dolphin has shared code with other emulators, and he says he looks at the code of other open source projects for inspiration. Most emulators are built on the work of dozens of people before them reverse-engineering hardware, writing documentation, and releasing source code. It's possible, of course, for a closed source emulator to achieve the same goal of preservation t

The first Destiny 2 ‘Last Call’ teaser video features Nathan Fillion telling tall tales

Yesterday, Destiny 2 was finally confirmed. And in two days, Bungie will unveil the official "Worldwide Reveal Trailer." "Last Call" features Nathan Fillion as Hunter Vanguard mentor Cayde-6, reminiscing about the good old days, and an "ugly contest where everyone was a winner." The tone of the trailer also represents quite a change from the grim, somber mood of the original Destiny, although how deeply that will run through the actual game is impossible to say. So for now, we're sticking with i
