Macro purchase for Microsoft

http://news.microsoft.com

One of the biggest deals in gaming has officially happened. Microsoft now owns Bethesda through their Zenimax purchase. This means game series like Fallout, Doom, and The Elder Scrolls are now part of the Microsoft family.

It remains unclear what this means for the future of Bethesda, it could mean more Xbox exclusives, more support for bigger and quicker releases with more resources. However, this does most likely mean good news for Game Pass owners as Bethesda games will most likely hit the Game Pass service soon.

No matter how people may feel about the purchase, here’s hoping that the purchase does lead to some exciting and positive news for Bethesda going forward.

Fearing for his family’s safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden, an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao and rogue mercenary Kano, as he prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana—the immense power from within his soul—in time to save not only his family, but to stop Outworld once and for all?”

Viking Survival with Friends

Coffee Stain Studios has launched their newest early access title Valheim. This game may not impress graphically but is a load of fun in every other aspect. With a crafting system similar to their other recent title Satisfactory, a focused combat system, and Norse mythology to coat it all results in a very satisfying gameplay experience.

Having already played the game with friends, it has been a blast. Even set backs like death don’t ruin much of the fun to be had. The game doesn’t hold your hand but gives you hints on what to do, while letting you play however you want to. The combat itself holds strong, with simple attack and blocking mechanics that are enhanced through crafting different gear. All this really comes together for MMO-like boss battles. Having friends at the ready only enhances the experience, allowing up to ten players per server to really up the party factor.

While the textures are low quality at the moment, the attention to detail is astounding, from the water, to how smoke moves and even the sails on your boats. Small inclusions like that help make this still be a breath taking experience. The game is available on Steam for $19.99, pick it up for a good time.

Resident Evil Village Reveal

Fellow fans and followers of Capcom’s Resident Evil series were treated to a world premiere of what’s to come. This past Thursday, Capcom showcased their next addition to the franchise with Resident Evil Village. Here’s a quick rundown of what was announced and shown.

Village takes place a few years after Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Players take control of Ethan Winters, the protagonist from the last game, as he is once again diving into a world of horror after meeting with Chris Redfield. Ethan will once again face many challenges and frightening new foes along the way as he searches for answers.

Players will be able to take themselves to a castle run by Lady Dimitrescu, a vampire who apparently is in charge of stopping Ethan in his tracks, with her daughters and other hordes of foes. Capcom was also showing off other characters such as “the Duke”, a merchant who is willing to sell the player various weapons, upgrades, and other items to help them on their journey. Players will also meet one more character who currently remains as a mystery.

Capcom dropped details on the various editions of the game they have to offer. The Collector’s Edition of Resident Evil Village will give players a bunch of both collectibles and in game items such as a Chris Redfield statue, poster, artbook, and a SteelBook Case.

Are you one of the lucky ones who were able to obtain a PlayStation 5? Well you’re in luck as Capcom released the Resident Evil 5 Demo in the PlayStation Store called Maiden. Players have a chance to take a sneak peak into Lady Dimitrescu’s castle and escape. For all of you who don’t have a PlayStation 5, don’t worry as Capcom is soon going to release another demo later this spring.

Resident Evil Village hits the shelves for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series Console, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam) on May 7, 2021. Players who purchase the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One copies will get a chance to upgrade to the next gen consoles at no extra cost.
