Sea of Thieves: Forsaken Shores DLC Delayed One Week

Sea of Thieves' Forsaken Shores DLC, not to be at all confused with Destiny 2's Forsaken DLC, has been delayed a week. Originally intended to come out day after tomorrow on September 19, you can now expect it eight days later on September 28. Maybe there because there's too much Forsaken confusion.

The actual reason, and not my dumb reason, is that the team is determined not to have nasty bugs in the final release. In a post talking about the delay, producer Joe Neate said a memory leak has been causing problems with Forsaken Shores.

"From our investigations this is a complex issue that we are working through solving, but as such we do not feel in a position to release Forsaken Shores to our players with confidence this week," Neate says. "Our goal this week is to resolve the memory issue and get enough Pioneer coverage so that we are confident we have resolved the issue, prior to releasing to all of our players."

More European Countries And One U.S. State Examine Gambling In Gaming

In the past year, a number of governments across the world have started taking a look at the blurring between gaming and gambling. In the U.S., Hawaii took aim specifically at Star Wars: Battlefront II, even as recently as last week Belgium suggested a criminal investigation into Electronic Arts and the FIFA titles. Now that list is expanding both in the number of investigators and the number of things they're looking to examine.

Fifteen European countries and the U.S. state of Washington have signed a declaration promising to look into various types of gambling mechanisms attached and adjacent to video games. The countries that signed the declaration are as follows:

The goal of the this declaration is to examine trading sites first and foremost, such as the gambling sides that plagued Counterstrike: Global Offensive and populate around games like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds today. But the signatories also want to look at lootboxes, buying virtual currency for gambling in games, and in-game gambling, though it's not clear how broad that last one can be.

Tetris Effect Comes To PlayStation 4 On November 9

Tetris Effect, the classic puzzle game re-exhilarated by Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi, is coming to the PlayStation 4 in both VR and non-VR forms on November 9, Sony announced today.

We took a look at the game at E3 this year and were somewhat blown away by what this modern version of Tetris had to offer. Tetris Effect combines the tried-and-true formula of Tetris, stretching back thirty years, and combining it with Mizuguchi's trademark sights, sounds, and style represented in games like Rez and Lumines.

The game can be played either with PSVR or without, so there's no need to worry if you don't have the headset or don't feel like getting sucked into the Tetris world. If you have a PS4 Pro, Tetris Effect is 4K and 60 frames per second, as well.
