Fear Effect Reinvented For 2018

Square Enix and French developer Sushee are bringing back the Fear Effect franchise via a remake of the original title called Fear Effect Reinvented. The game is scheduled to come out in 2018 on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.

More than just a re-release of the game with HD graphics, as the name suggests, Reinvented aims to create a Fear Effect experience that is up-to-date with modern titles. "We won't be making a simple remake," creative director Thibaut Romaggi told gamesindustry.biz. "We want to stay as close as possible to the original, but important aspects of the game will evolve." For instance, better controls is one of the aspects that the developer says it'll include.

Sushee's first experience with the property was via the more strategy-based Fear Effect Sedna brought to life through Kickstarter and the Square Enix Collective indie program.

PlayStation Twitter Briefly Claims Their Databases Have Been Hacked

PlayStation Twitter Briefly Claims Their Databases Have Been Hacked

The official PlayStation twitter, Sony's account for sharing PlayStation news and updates, briefly popped up several tweets today stating that their accounts and databases had been compromised by a hacking group OurMine. The tweets were quickly deleted, but not before we were able to capture the tweet extorting Sony and claiming the act as one of a security company.

It is not clear what Sony's reaction will be to this issue, but it is not the first time hackers have attacked the company. In 2011, PSN was infamously taken down for an entire month after a hack that compromised every PlayStation Network account. More recently, hacking group Lizard Squad took down both PSN and Xbox Live during the holidays.

Our Take
It's never a good look when your social media accounts are taken over by hackers, but at least Sony managed to delete the tweets quickly before it became very embarrassing.

Xbox One Exclusivity For PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Called Into Question

Microsoft announced this week that they would be the publisher for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the mega-popular PC Battle Royale shooter, when it arrives on the Xbox One later this year. However, the wording seemed confusing to many, and players looking for clarification from developer Bluehole on Twitter were met with some muddy wording.

Similar to the hemming and hawing over 2015's Rise of The Tomb Raider, the inability to get a straight answer over whether the game is a full exclusive or a timed exclusive is leaving players frustrated.

We reached out to Microsoft for clarification and were unable to get an answer on whether the game has an exclusivity window on consoles or not.
