"Today we're announcing that after many years of epic battles, we're closing Xbox 360 as a platform for Defiance 2013. This was not an easy decision for our team, but due to old technical systems, it became impossible to properly sustain the game."

Terraria Set To Receive Latest Major UpdateMatthew Squaire

In a recent tweet (below) from one of the developers, the update will arrive on the PC on May 16th, which also happens to be the game’s 9th anniversary on that platform. The tweet shows a picture that has since been dissected by the internet for any morsel of information as to what this update may bring. While the developers have not released the patch notes for update 1.4, the Official Terraria Wiki has compiled a list of potential changes that may be included in this patch, which are all sourced from various developer social media, Discord community, and forum posts while this update has been in the works. While we won’t dive deep into any of the specifics here, but the Wiki states the update is to bring over 1,000 new items, so we’re all in for a treat. For console players, who earlier this month received the equivalent of the 1.3.5 PC update that was released three years ago, while there’s no word on when you’ll be getting the “Journey’s End” hopefully it won’t be another three year wait!

That's right, folks!  As of today, Warface is available on the Nintendo Switch.  The porting work was accomplished by MY.GAMES' in-house studio, Allods Team, which also brought the game to the other two current-gen consoles.  Naturally, the Switch's iteration is substantially modified from the versions on its more powerful brethren, and the game runs at 30FPS/720p when docked.  Undocked, the quality drops to 540p to maintain a relatively crisp experience.

Thanks to the SEGA AGES series, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will be available on the Nintendo Switch on February 20th.  As you're probably aware, the sequel to the original Sonic the Hedgehog introduced the ability for a second player to join in on the fun as Tails.  Looking back, this may not have been the ideal implementation of co-op gameplay, but it was certainly a great starting point.

The "Re-Elected" version of the 2013 sandbox hit was made specifically for the current generation of consoles and has now made the full circuit with its release on the Switch.  It features a startlingly large amount of DLC (25 expansions in total) and includes the two larger, story-focused packs:  "Enter the Dominatrix" and "How the Saints Save Christmas".

The official post from Bethesda fleshes out some more details of the update, stating that “The re-releases of DOOM (1993) and DOOM II have been decked out with an arsenal of new options and quality-of-life adjustments, including a Quick Weapon Select feature, improved Level Select function, added Aspect Ratio and Brightness options, a new split-screen HUD and more!” That full post can be found on Bethesda’s website, here.

In a blog post on Steam, Starbreeze CEO Mikael Nermark explained that due to having “gone through something of a purgatory fire in the past year,” the decision was made that the content for PAYDAY 2 should be made available once again a la carte, this time without the promise of “forever free” content. Financial mismanagement seems to be an ongoing issue with Starbreeze and PAYDAY developer, OVERKILL. Our own Jason Love walked through PAYDAY 2’s previous tumultuous relationship with DLC and microtransactions, which can be found here, however of more import to this particular announcement is the reconstruction (i.e., bankruptcy) of Starbreeze late last year, as Eurogamer thoroughly reported here. The key takeaway from the article is when OVERKILL announced they were winding down support/development on PAYDAY 2 back in 2017, they did so believing they’d make money on their forthcoming Walking Dead game. They did not and now they and Starbreeze are in need of some source of revenue. Thus, they are spinning up PAYDAY 2 again and selling everything they can.

In addressing the patching and content additions Volition’s Senior Community Developer, Mike Watson, stated, “The four main things that we’re working on are: performance; stability, fixing a lot of the crashing and issues; integrating Steam networking, so co-op will work again and multiplayer; and then also adding the DLC, which was console-only and now we’re putting the DLC for PC as well.”

Come September 20th, the fruits of that hypothetical person's labor will arrive in both a physical and digital format.  If you missed the game on its first go-round, you'll have a fantastic opportunity this fall to dive back into the little dinosaur theme park that couldn't.  For a glimpse at all the cooperative platforming available to you, check out the announcement trailer, below:

Players will also eschew their pitiful human bodies in favor of the mechanical SEDs, humanoid robots each armed with an Arcus.  This new modular weapon has three unique firing modes and won't require ammunition, but it will need to be carefully monitored to prevent overheating.  Take a look at the trailer to see the Arcus in action:

While this marks the end of an era, it could well be that Microsoft returns to this type of system, as the official statement from Microsoft reads; “We’ve listened closely to community feedback and respect the game libraries you’ve built throughout the last 18 years. That’s why we’re taking our work a step further and announced this week that thousands of games from all four generations will be playable on Project Scarlett. As such, we have now shifted our focus to help make the games you love playing on Xbox One compatible with future Xbox hardware.” This may end the program as we know it, but this is not the end of Microsoft’s focus on keeping game libraries with gamers.
