Minecraft Dungeons Jungle DLC released at same time as free update

Minecraft Dungeons Jungle DLC released at same time as free update

If you've been playing Minecraft Dungeons since launch, you've been playing a little over a month. If you've been playing that long, you might be ready for a DLC already. But for the rest of the world - the people that've not yet gotten in on the action - is it too intimidating to start a game that's already rolling with an expansion just a month after initial release? In any case, the goal for the profit-minded creators at Minecraft is clear.

Fallout 76 Update 20 is here and it’s kicking off The Legendary Run

Fallout 76 Update 20 is here and it’s kicking off The Legendary Run

Back in May, Bethesda revealed that Seasons were coming to Fallout 76. Seasons, on the surface, look a lot like the battle passes we see in many free-to-play games, as they allow players to earn experience, rank up, and unlock cosmetic items for their accounts. The main difference, however, is that Fallout 76 Seasons are free to all players, and won't require any payment up front (though players can still pay Atoms to progress through a given Season's tiers if they want).

Apple Arcade contracts reportedly being canceled for not being engaging enough

Apple Arcade contracts reportedly being canceled for not being engaging enough

When Apple launched its Arcade service last year, it was poised to revolutionize mobile gaming if not digital gaming in general. It was praised for not trying to milk gamers with IAPs and ads and its subscription-based model promised to give developers and publishers a steadier source of revenue. It might have been too early to celebrate, however, as news of some significant changes underfoot seem to suggest that Apple Arcade isn't yet the profitable gaming service Apple envisioned it to be.

Niantic Labs’ new CATAN AR game is just the tip of the iceberg

Niantic Labs’ new CATAN AR game is just the tip of the iceberg

It's actually not exactly news that Niantic Labs, creators of the famed Ingress, Pokemon GO, and Harry Potter Wizards Unite AR games, have been working on a new title and what that title would be. It is, however, fresh news that it will soon be opening it up for beta testing. While that may already be big news for fans of the board game franchise, what Niantic also mentioned in passing might actually have even bigger implications for the still struggling AR market.

Pokemon GO “balloons” leak may change the game forever

Niantic's inadvertently revealed a major Pokemon GO update with Team Rocket in a balloon! A spill of game code for the Pokemon GO iOS version of the game showed a sort of game element that moves around the map. It's almost as if allowing Pokemon friends to rove around the map was a test run for this very awesome realization of one of the original dreams for the game - real-deal moving Pokemon!

Fortnite Save the World exits early access with big changes in tow

Fortnite Save the World exits early access with big changes in tow

Today is a big day for the Fortnite brand, but for the first time in a long while, we're actually talking about Save the World and not Battle Royale. Fortnite, as many will remember, got its start with the PvE-focused Save the World and only shot to fame after Epic rolled out its much more popular Battle Royale mode. Still, throughout the past couple of years, Epic has been developing Save the World alongside Battle Royale, and now the original Fortnite game mode has hit a big development milestone.

The third season of Fortnite's second chapter is well underway and players have largely adjusted to the new environment -- one primarily featuring water as a consequence of Midas and his attempt to stop the Storm forever. Though we can't say exactly what Epic has planned at this point, the company has heavily hinted at what is to come, making it easier to anticipate what tomorrow's 13.20 game update will bring.

Super Nintendo World theme park opening delay is good news for gamers

Assuming you're the sort of person that might one day bring your children to a Nintendo-themed amusement park, today's news is good news. Nintendo announced that they'd be delaying the opening of Super Nintendo World (the Japan-based theme park) until further notice. This delay was due to COVID-19 - not because there was an early outbreak or anything, but because they'd like to be cautious now rather than sorry later.
