Atlus Teases Persona 5 R For PlayStation

This morning Atlus releases a teaser trailer for the much rumored Persona 5 R. The teaser carries a PlayStation logo at the front, but there are no other details about additional potential platforms, like Switch. Billboards in the teaser have the words, "New Projects" displayed, which could potentially mean Atlus is working on multiple Persona 5 projects.

The website offered at the end of the teaser, p5r.jp, doesn't offer any additional information, but does say "Next Information" with a March 2019 date after it. Presumably this means we will learn more in March, as opposed to the game – whatever it is – releasing in March. You can check out the Japanese teaser trailer below.

Fallout 3 Has A Few Easter Eggs You Can Only See By Moving Out Of Bounds

Bethesda games are known for three things: Expansive worlds, glitches, and Easter eggs. Youtuber Shesez's latest episode of Boundary Break higlights the latter in Fallout 3, as he moves outside of the game's normal boundaries to find some cool Easter eggs and secrets.

Some of the cool things Shesez is able to find within Fallout 3's assets are how the game renders the train car sequences, how your mother looks in the segment in which your character is born, and what Tranquility Lane looks like in color. It's an interesting video that offers insight into how Fallout 3 was developed and some neat trivia at the same time.

Rainbow Six Siege, Monster Hunter: World, GTA V Headline Steam's Best-Selling, Most Played Games Of 2018

Valve has released its charts of the best-selling and most played games on Steam in 2018, and while new releases like Monster Hunter: World and Assassin's Creed Odyssey has breakout years it was games with regular content drops that seem to be doing most well.

Though Valve doesn't disclose specific sales or revenue numbers in its charts, it does stratify games into distinct tiers, giving us a glimpse into how groups of games did relative to each other.

First up: Best-sellers. While 2018 titles like Monster Hunter: World, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, and Far Cry 5 made the platinum tier of titles who grossed the most revenue (allowing free-to-play titles with microtransactions to compete), nine of the twelve titles in that tier were games actually released before this year, but received regular or major content updates this year. The twelve best-selling titles are:

Monster Hunter: World Gets Assassin's Creed Crossover Event

Yesterday Capcom stealth-launched a new crossover event for Monster Hunter: World, this time crossing over with the Assassin's Creed series.

The "SDF: Silent, Deadly, and Fierce" event, which lasts until January 10, has players facing off against "nimble, fierce, and impetuous monsters" to earn Senu's Feather. The event features a new armor that makes players look like Bayek from Assassin's Creed Origins, and the Assassin's Hood tool, which resembles the outfit Ezio wore in Assassin's Creed II and grants additional damage when attacking monsters out of stealth, as well as additional movement speed while running, climbing, and crouch-running.

The event is currently not available on PC, but will arrive "at a later date."

From Software Working On Two Unannounced Games

From Software Working On Two Unannounced Games

This year, most of the talk surrounding From Software was focused on the reveal of its new title, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (and, to a lesser extent, Déraciné). However, the studio behind games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne has apparently been even busier than it seemed.

In an interview with 4gamer (and translated by Gematsu), From Software's Hidetaka Miyazaki says that the company has two announced games in the works – though fans will have to wait a bit for any details. Apart from saying that the games would be in the style of From Software's previous work, Miyazaki did not reveal any specifics regarding either project.

Despite the lack of specifics, this leaves some interesting room for speculation. Maybe that Bloodborne sequel exists after all? Maybe another Souls game is coming? Or maybe there's a new franchise brewing? Whatever the titles end up being, From Software has a legion of loyal (if sometimes masochistic) fans eager to throw themselves at the challenge.  

Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night Canceled On Mac And Linux

Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night Canceled On Mac And Linux

When Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night originally met its Kickstarter funding goal back in 2015, the plan was for the game to release on PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, Vita, Windows, Mac, and Linux. Since then, the Wii U version changed to Switch instead, and the Vita version was canceled outright – and the list of planned platforms just shrunk a bit more. In the latest development update, creator Koji Igarashi announced that the Mac and Linux versions have also been canceled.

"We have made this tough decision due to challenges of supporting middleware and online feature support and making sure we deliver on the rest of the scope for the game," Igarashi says. If you were a backer hoping to get the game on Mac or Linux, you can send the team an email to change to a different platform.

Not all news out of Bloodstained is grim. Igarashi also says: "Development has reached its peak — we are currently checking the performance of Bloodstained on each platform. Overall, we are done with enemy placement and entering the adjustment phase." After some delays, it seems like the 2019 release is attainable – especially with the recent news that developer WayForward is assisting on the project.
