Dark Horse Comics Dedicates Itself To Gaming With New Division

Dark Horse Comics has brought some of our favorite games into the realm of graphic novels. Turns out, that's just the beginning. The publisher just recently announced that it has started its own gaming division with Dark Horse Games. 

This company has been one of my favorites in the comics world and not just because it gave me more of Dragon Age's Fenris with new tales of our beloved broody elf. Dark Horse has been a leading name in the gaming community with comic adaptations for years, growing exponentially since its debut back in 1986. From Tom Clancy to Mass Effect, there are so many games that Dark Horse has helped bring to life in a new way. The company even offers unique collectibles for our favorite gaming franchises as well, including the famed Witcher series

The Dark Horse Games initiative aims to create games based on franchises that don't necessarily have the biggest limelight, teaming up with external studios to see this creative vision to fruition. "We have evergreen properties, like Hellboy, where there will always be interest in making games and doing collaborations," said general manager Johnny Lee to VentureBeat.

Final Fantasy VII Remake PS5 Save Transfer Included In New Update

Final Fantasy VII Remake PS5 save transfers are now available thanks to a new update in place for the Intergrade new-gen enhancements. This means that those that enjoyed the modernized take on a Final Fantasy favorite can now enjoy the tale on a new generation of gaming without having to start from scratch. 

When players boot up Final Fantasy VII Remake, they'll see a new option added to the game's main menu. It is there that a new choice has been added, the Upload Save Data option. Click on that and you can choose a save file of your choosing to upload to be directly downloaded onto your PS5 system specifically for Intergrade. For those that may have had several different runs, you're not just limited to just one save file either.

But what about trophies? No worries, trophy data, which is not uncommon, will also transfer over for Intergrade. Players will see all of the new features that Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade has on PS5 when the game releases on June 10. This also includes the brand new Yuffie episode, which is exclusive to PS5, and will bring in even more familiar faces to the remake for long-time fans to enjoy. 

Guerrilla Games Offers Clarity Regarding Horizon Forbidden West's Release Date

Guerrilla Games Offers Clarity Regarding Horizon Forbidden West's Release Date

We recently sat down with some of the team at Guerrilla Games to discuss the latest Sony State of Play, where Horizon Forbidden West's gameplay was finally unveiled. Fans were pining the presentation would also reveal a release date, but were left more puzzled when no release timeframe was given. This included no longer having the previous "2021" listing. We were also curious. Did this mean the game was slipping out of 2021?

To set the record straight, we asked game director Mathijs de Jonge if Horizon Forbidden West was still on track to release this year, or if things had shifted away from that timeframe.  "The development is on track,” de Jonge tells Game Informer. "The thing is, these are just strange times that we're all in and we have never finalized and shipped a game under these kinds of circumstances. So we are constantly calculating our schedules and looking at, ‘Okay, where are we?’ and ‘Are there any unforeseen things that might happen?’ We just want to be super confident when we announce the release date, that we're actually going to hit it. So we just need a little bit more time, and then we can come back with a final release date.”

New God Of War Release Date Window Delayed, Confirmed For PS5 And PS4

When Sony Santa Monica first revealed the sequel to the PlayStation 4 hit God of War, fans were eager to crack the code of what Ragnarok would have to offer. The studio originally had a specific release window in mind, but after a global pandemic and being realistic about the state of the game, the team has decided to shift the expected release window from 2021 to 2022 instead. 

The news of the release window delay first broke buried within a recent PlayStation Blog post, but Santa Monica further elaborated with a dedicated post of its own. In a tweet from the California-based studio, it was confirmed that the God of War sequel is expected to drop sometime next year.

Atari VCS Release Date Is This Month

Atari VCS Release Date Is This Month

The Atari VCS is a name that has been floating around the games industry for years now. We first saw a model of the Atari VCS at the Game Developers Conference in 2018, but the console/PC hybrid system has still not hit store shelves. However, Atari has now announced that the VCS is launching sooner than we think, as the system that is set as the reentry of one of gaming's most iconic companies into the console market comes out June 15.

With a design inspired by the Atari 2600 system, the Atari VCS very intentionally calls back to the history of the fabled game company. However, Atari hopes the VCS delivers a modern and fully featured multimedia experience across gaming, entertainment, and productivity that will draw the affection of creators and gamers alike.

Far Cry 6 Won't Offer Map Editor, Arcade Mode Not Returning For Future Games

We've learned quite a bit about Far Cry 6 recently, including new characters, the blood of rebellion, and what the next step for the Ubisoft franchise has to offer longtime fans. For those that were curious as to whether the beloved Arcade Mode and map editor would be making a comeback, we've got some bad news. 

Several Far Cry 6 devs took to Reddit to answer some fan questions, including one specifically asking about whether or not the map editor would be coming back for the latest game. When confirming that no, it would not be in Far Cry 6, the creative team also confirmed that Arcade Mode would not be returning in future titles in the series. According to game director Alexandre Letendre, "No, Arcade will not come back. Removing this mode from our plan was a difficult decision, but allowed us to focus our efforts on the main campaign, transporting players into the heart of a modern-day guerrilla revolution."

No Man’s Sky Prisms Update Is Out Now

Hello Games continues to update and improve No Man’s Sky. Coming in hot after the recent Mass Effect tie-in, this latest update hitting today is known as Prisms. Prisms is largely focused on improving visuals, as a massive overhaul to existing objects, structures, and more. Everything from planetes to creatures to weather effects has been given a significant tuning, down to light-refracting rain and new lighting effects to discover in cavernous systems located. This all comes with numerous new effects to check out. The trailer below lays out in detail what Prisms brings to the table, so check it out!

While Expeditions before it added a ton of new systems, features, and mechanics, Prisms is focused on making No Man’s Sky look better. Some of these upgrades cross into other areas though, like adding fur to creatures or adding new classes of companions that can be tamed and ridden in the sky, like flying worms, giant butterflies, and huge beetles. If you’re not flying around on a giant bug, are you really playing at all?

PlayStation Website Is Removing Parties, Friends, Trophy Info, And More Next Month

Sony has been making quite a few changes to its PlayStation website over the past few years, slowly removing features to consolidate down to the mobile app and console interface. In the latest update, Team Blue confirmed that a few more features are being slashed from the PlayStation site, including removing access to your game library, friend information, Trophies, and more.

In a new blog update from Sony, the company confirmed that MyPlayStation will no longer be supported, which limits the following features: 

The above features will still be accessible via PlayStation 4 and 5 consoles, as well as the PS App that continues to see more modernized updates. I would love to see the app offer a way to see your screenshots like the Xbox app does. It would be great for those who, like me, love to use those in-game captures as fancy wallpapers and such.
