World War Z Receives Season 2 Roadmap

World War Z’s first season of content just ended last month and already developer Saber Interactive has released their roadmap for the second season of free content with a simple, easy to read image, which can be found below. There's no specific timeline provided for all this, just "Q4 2019,” so it will not be long to wait before hordes of new content comes crashing into World War Z across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Risk of Rain 2's Early Access "Forecast" Looks Good

We eagerly hopped into Hopoo's Risk of Rain 2 when it hit Early Access last month, and have been equally eager to hear what the developer's plans are for getting this thing to a full release. Today, Hopoo and Gearbox revealed the development roadmap of what will be added to the game and, roughly, when, leading up to the full release sometime next Spring.

Anthem's Whole Content Roadmap is Now Delayed

BioWare has been working to fix Anthem ever since its rocky launch a couple months ago, but the writing may now be on the wall for the third-person shooter. In a Reddit post on Tuesday, the Lead Producer and Head of Live Services wrote about the current state of the game with the release of the latest patch, which did add a new Stronghold and some needed QoL improvements, and also where things are headed. The short answer: nowhere fast.

More Co-Op Sniper Maps on the Way for Hitman 2

The recent revamp of the Hitman series was a bold, new approach to a formula that had started to feel a little rote and stale. The sequel, Hitman 2, is, very much more of the same wacky stealth action as the 2016, but it also added a new co-op feature: co-op sniper maps. You and a buddy (online) could play as two other ICA agents - Stone and Knight - to take down three targets from afar. To date, there's only been one of these Co-Op Sniper Maps, but a new one was added a couple weeks ago and another one is on the way.

Future Developments for Battleborn Have Ceased, Servers Still Running

There were some great ideas and nifty mechanics within Battleborn, but, ultimately, it seems like it was not destined to be a long-running franchise for Gearbox. In a forum post this weekend, Creative Director Randy Varnell stated that "there will be no more Battleplans and there is currently no planned content after the Fall Update." The lights may be on (for now), but nobody is home.

The Engine that Drives Assassin's Creed Unity

Most gamers just want to pick up a control pad and play a game; knowing what was needed to get the game made is not the highest priority when you are blasting aliens or flying through the air.  However, for a game to exist, it needs to be built on something.  The latest Ubisoft video highlights the new Assassin's Creed Unity engine and how it has enhanced the franchise.

There is no getting around it.

Unreal Development Kit Update Brings "The Samaritan" Demo to Life

Last week at GDC, Epic Games showed off a new version of the Unreal Engine 3 that boasted a ton of new features.  To showcase this, they created a demo called "The Samaritan."  In a look and setting that clearly looks inspired from Bladerunner, we see a rainy futuristic city with neon lights reflected in every puddle.  A man on a rooftop witnesses a beating and jumps in to help out.
