Take Some Time Off In April For The Release Of Vacation Simulator

After a brief announcement at The Game Awards in 2017, Vacation Simulator, the follow-up to the hugely popular Job Simulator, has finally got a release date and a slew of new information. For those of you tired of waiting for this vacation, it's not far off. The game is releasing in just over a month on SteamVR and Oculus for $29.99 and the PSVR version is coming sometime this summer.

Along with the news of when you can immerse yourself in the simulation, the developers, Owlchemy Labs, also released a trailer showcasing the different locales you'll get to lounge around in on Vacation Island: the beach, forest, mountain, and resort.

In the year 2060, the robots have built this simulation to better understand what humans do when they aren't working. To that end, Vacation Island comes equipped with plenty to see and do. Owlchemy gave a run down of what to expect:

Report: Disc-less Xbox One To Release In May

Report: Disc-less Xbox One To Release In May

Rumors have been swirling for a few months now that Microsoft is planning to release a new version of their Xbox One console without a disc drive, effectively making a digital-only console. Now reports are coming out that the digital-only Xbox One is not only real, but it will release in just a few months in May.

According to Windows Central, the console is codenamed the Xbox Maverick. The actual name, however, is reported to be the "Xbox One S All-Digital" edition. The console will be a normal Xbox One S, but all games will be digital, like a PSP Go or a tablet or phone. The idea is certainly not alien, but very rarely used on consoles.

The hope is for the console to be cheaper than a regular Xbox One S, but it is unclear how much money removing the disc drive will save both Microsoft and consumers. Still, for users who don't want to buy physical games and publishers who want to stop making physical games, the prospect is likely appealing.

Shakedown: Hawaii Announced As Epic Games Store Timed Exclusive

The developer behind Retro City Rampage announced its next game today – Shakedown: Hawaii – a 16-bit open-world game where players build a "totally legitimate" business in the Aloha state.

Shakedown: Hawaii follows three protagonists: an aging CEO, his son – a DJ looking for street cred, and his armed-to-the-teeth consultant. The gameplay trailer accompanying the announcement shows the trio acquiring businesses, taking out competitor vehicles, and shaking down shops with a bat to obtain protection money. All legal activities, of course. Players can traverse Hawaii by foot, car, or boat as they complete missions to grow their empire.

Ubisoft Releases Action-Packed Division 2 Trailer

The Division 2's latest trailer displays myriads of intense gunfights along the streets of America's capitol. Just beyond some of D.C.'s most famous monuments, gunmen take cover behind piled sandbags. Explosions scatter debris and bring combatants to their knees. Amid the chaos, a group of Division operatives employ combat drones, grenade launchers, and bulletproof shields to best their adversaries. 

The Division 2 launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 15. If this trailer excites you, head here to watch our time with the game's open world. 

R.B.I. Baseball 19 Takes The Plate With Exclusive Topps Cards

R.B.I. Baseball 19 Takes The Plate With Exclusive Topps Cards

R.B.I. Baseball 19 is releasing today for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch in spite of our thoughts on the previous entry. If you consider yourself the daring type, though, and will be picking up the physical version of the game you can snag yourself a few exclusive Topps trading cards. Exclusively at Walmart (and only the Xbox One and Switch versions – sorry PlayStation fans) there will be specially marked copies of the game that include the cards.

The cards feature Alex Bregman (the cover athlete), Lourdes Gurriel Jr. (the Canadian cover athlete), and a handful of other players. So if the spokes on your bike are noticeably lacking a certain flair...this is certainly one way to get some baseball cards.

Friday The 13th: The Game Coming To Switch

Friday The 13th: The Game Coming To Switch

Gun Media has announced that Friday the 13th: The Game will be heading over to Switch this spring, presumably accompanied by that weird "ki-ki-ki-ma-ma-ma!" sound from the movie. Sorry.

The Switch version of the game will include all of the released content and paid DLC, with the exception of the Savini Jason character or the backer-exclusive clothing pack. 

Last year, development on the game stopped amid a lawsuit between the original film's writer and director. While that may have stopped planned DLC, it didn't prevent the game from getting ported onto the Switch.
