Earlier this month, Gunnar also launched its partnership with Blizzard for Heroes of the Storm models. These are also available on Gunnar’s website (along with the Heroes of the Storm temple sleeves on which we previously reported).

It's time to start writing the next chapter... pic.twitter.com/D31SOEw8vJ

Things Aren’t Getting Any Better With Batman: Arkham Knight On PC

Things Aren’t Getting Any Better With Batman: Arkham Knight On PC

Following yesterday’s acknowledgment that there are significant problems with the PC version of Arkham Knight, Rocksteady has issued a lengthy statement intended to help players. If you want to “Be the Batman,” you’re going to need to massage the settings a bit.

What stands out in Rocksteady’s post is that the developer strongly urges players not to edit the .ini file. Players have been doing so to remove the 30 frames-per-second cap, an oddity in contemporary PC gaming.

“We do not recommend that users change anything in the game’s .ini files as this will potentially negatively impact performance, including frame rate, and stability,” Rockstead writes. “At this time we do not recommend using NVIDIA’s GeForce Experience or AMD’s Gaming Evolved Optimization tools.”

Ten Naughty Dog Artists Gather Tomorrow To Discuss Uncharted, The Last Of Us, And More

Ten members of Naughty Dog’s art team will be gathering at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects, Games, and Animation tomorrow to discuss their craft. The event will be held in Los Angeles, but if you can’t attend, you won’t need to miss out.

The event isn’t specifically to discuss the upcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (though it will no doubt be mentioned). Rather the artists will discuss their daily work, the types of projects they’ve participated in, and the skills required to succeed in the field.

Participating artists include:

Evolve’s First ‘Hunting Season 2’ Character Arrives Today Alongside DLC Price Drops

Evolve’s second season kicks off today as 2K and Turtle Rock begin to roll out four new hunters and a new monster. First up, the Assault class gets a new member with a brutal mechsuit that turns the tables on Evolve’s Goliath.

Lennox pieced together her suit, Thunderchild, from scrap found on Shear. She’s got a plasma lance, heavy auto cannon, and the thunder strike. The last of these is a rocket-powered aerial punch that is akin to Goliath’s leap smash.

about X hours ago from

People Can Fly, the studio behind Painkiller, Bulletstorm, and Gears of War Judgment, is now independent once more. The company announced its amicable split from Epic this morning.

In recent years, the team was known as Epic Games Poland, and contributed to a number of projects. In addition to its work on Gears of War, People Can Fly also worked on Infinity Blade III, Unreal Tournament, and the upcoming free-to-play Fortnite.

"We've been honored to work with this brilliant group of programmers, artists and designers throughout their history: first as a partner using the Unreal Engine, then as a studio within Epic, and now once again as an independent company,” says Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney. People Can Fly will continue to work with Epic and will be using Unreal Engine 4 for its new, unannounced project.

[Update] Driveclub PlayStation Plus Out Tomorrow, Offline Mode Only At First

Update 3: Sony has shared more details about the PlayStation Plus version. All members will be able to download the game starting tomorrow, June 25. However, only the offline mode will be available.

Evolution is concerned about the servers, and will therefore be granting online access to players slowly. "We have to take this precaution because Driveclub connectivity is demanding for a multiplayer game, with countless ever-growing social connections across clubs, challenges, multiplayer, and hundreds of thousands of dynamic leaderboards and activity feeds," writes Sony president of worldwide studios Shuhei Yoshida.

There's no specific timetable for bringing the entire community onboard. We'll monitor the situation once the online community starts to grow from the influx of PlayStation Plus members.

Red Bull Offering Timed Exclusive DLC Destiny Mission

Usually when we talk about soft drinks and video games, it’s Mountain Dew and Call of Duty that are paired up. Activision is branching out a bit this year, partnering up with Red Bull to deliver bonus experience and a unique mission for Destiny’s The Taken King expansion this fall.

We first reported on the partnership from leaked photos earlier in June. Today, we have details on what you’ll get from Red Bull (besides wings).

Marked cans will give players bonus experience that can be used immediately. There is also an in-game quest that will be made available once The Taken King expansion launches on September 15 and accessible through codes found on Red Bull packaging. After January 1, the mission will be available to all.
