Report: Players Who Create 'Inappropriate' Custom Characters In Soulcalibur VI Now Risk A Ban

Soulcalibur VI features a fairly robust create-a-character mode. It also lets you take any character you create into the online competitive modes, including ranked. You can see how that might cause issues from a mile away, but Bandai Namco looks to be on the case. 

According to a translated message on the official Soulcalibur VI Japanese website, players who make "inappropriate characters" now risk having their accounts banned from online play.

The exact definition of "inappropriate" is somewhat vague. There are plenty of characters loaded with mundane objects that, when put together, create obscene imagery, but also characters who obscure the entire screen, change the hitboxes of certain attacks, or take one character swap it out for another in an attempt to confuse opponents in ranked matches. We've reached out to Bandai Namco to clarify and will update this article should they reply.

Battlefield V Will Have A Virtual Currency For Cosmetics Implemented After Launch

Battlefield V Will Have A Virtual Currency For Cosmetics Implemented After Launch

With Battlefield V being the first major game from DICE after last year's Star Wars: Battlefront II upended the table on multiplayer FPS microtransactions, the studio has been cautious with both how they approach and how they discuss the revenue model with Battlefield V. Today, DICE and EA explained how it will work, and seem to at least be trying to avoid the pay-to-win reputation that dogged Battlefront II.

Battlefield V will have two currency options: Company coin and Battlefield currency. Company coin is earned in-game through daily missions, career rank progression, and live events. You use company coin to purchase new equipment, skins, and general gear, as well as new skill upgrades and cosmetics. The plainly named Battlefield currency, which is purchased with real money, can only be spent on cosmetics.

To put it simply, everything can be bought using in-game money, but you can shortcut your way to cosmetics by spending real money.

Red Dead Redemption II Made Record-Breaking $725 Million This Weekend

The official word from Rockstar is the prequel raked in over $725 million dollars worldwide, was the most pre-ordered full game ever on PlayStation Network, garnered the biggest day one sales of a full game ever on PlayStation Network, and had the biggest entertainment launch of 2018.

Undertale Creator To Reveal Something New Tomorrow

Undertale creator Toby Fox is teasing something new regarding Undertale, though whether it's a sequel or an update isn't quite clear.

Whatever it is, however, it looks to be pretty major. The official Undertale Twitter account this morning posted several vague tweets, seemingly in in character, saying it wants "To show you something," and that it will make contact again in 24 hours. It also mentions that whatever it's going to reveal "is far from complete," however, and that it will take questions from the community and use the feedback to complete it.

Fox is also encouraging PC and Mac players who've finished the game to play it early tomorrow morning. "I want to make something new, and it all begins with your feedback," Fox said.
