Ubisoft is working on 'The Division 2'

Tom Clancy's The Division is getting a sequel. During today's "State of the Game" stream developers from Ubisoft announced that the team is working on The Division 2. Why a sequel versus expansions? Because there are still a lot of stories to tell within the game, the developers said. It's being worked on by the same team and studios within Ubisoft (including Massive Entertainment, which led the first). Also, the team really wanted to show off how far the game's engine has come since the first game was released two years ago to the day.

PS4 Pro update finally makes more games look better on 1080p TVs

The latest PlayStation 4 software update is here, and it gives Pro consoles the ability to make games look better, even if you're playing on an older TV. PS4 version 5.50 comes with a supersampling mode for the Pro console, which shows games at a higher resolution and with four times the amount of visual and color info than usual. The output upgrade was designed to reduce jagged edges and to ultimately make images look sharper and clearer. In addition, the latest update adds shortcuts for music playback: square for volume control on Spotify and the Media Player and triangle for play or pause.

Netflix is taking a wait-and-see approach to virtual reality

Netflix was one of the first video-streaming services to adopt VR in 2015, when it introduced a 360-degree app that let users step into a virtual room to watch movies or TV shows on a Gear VR. Then, a year later, it launched a version of that application for Google's Daydream headset, but the company has been relatively quiet in the VR space ever since. The reason for that, simply put, is that Netflix doesn't see the technology as a priority -- at least not right now. Speaking at a media event inside the company's Hollywood headquarters, Chief Production Officer Greg Peters said that Netflix is only focused on seeing how VR systems evolve at the moment.

'State of Decay 2' brings a zombie horde to Xbox on May 22nd

Just when you thought you were safe, it's time to fight for survival again. State of Decay 2 is coming on May 22nd, and it's bringing a zombie invasion the likes of which players have never seen before. As we revealed in our preview last year, the sequel takes "kill or be killed" to a whole new level, as you'll be heading up a team of survivors and ultimately deciding who lives or dies. The game launches on Xbox One and PC, with two access tiers that suggest the State of Decay franchise is paving the way for the subscription gaming service that Xbox chief Phil Spencer has nodded towards before.
