about X hours ago from

The first free content update for the RPG Torment: Tides of Numenera is out now on PS4 and Xbox One, following its PC release last week, and it gives players access to a new companion and an in-game codex.

The Servant of the Tides update is headlined by the companion, Oom, an amorphous, shapeshifting blob. Oom has unique skills and its own questline. According to a press release, "Oom is a living artifact from a prior world, and extraordinarily loyal to you. A shape-changer and guardian, it is somehow connected to the Tides, and it grants the Last Castoff a deeper connection to them."

The second addition is the Voluminous Codex, a large encyclopedia about in-game lore. Like codexes in other games such as Mass Effect or Destiny, it evolves as you travel through the game's world, and more entries are added as you stumble across new creatures or places.

Next Battlegrounds Update Fixes Targeting Issue

about X hours ago from

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has proven to be wildly popular in the couple of months since its release, but because it's in early access, it's still rough. As a result, developer Bluehole has been working hard on updates to bugs and issues, and today it detailed one important tweak coming in the next patch: it will fix a significant problem affecting targeting.

In a video posted on Twitter, the developer showed off the change. In Battlegrounds' current build, there is a very short delay between where your crosshairs are and where a bullet will fly. If you aren't moving your gun, then this won't be an issue. However, if you are swinging your gun around while you fire, the bullet will fly according to where the gun was aimed a few milliseconds before the trigger was fired. In the patch, this issue is fixed, so that where you're aiming when you pull the trigger is where the bullet will fly. You can see the video demonstration showing off the fix below.

We'll have patch notes for our 2nd monthly update on Tuesday, but now a look at a targeting issue @toonerDev resolved over the weekend... pic.twitter.com/WxwlWHccV1

Nintendo Switch Not Getting Middle-earth: Shadow of War

Middle-earth: Shadow of War, the follow-up to 2014's well-received Shadow of Mordor, is not coming to the Nintendo Switch--at least not yet.

Speaking to GameSpot, Monolith creative VP Michael de Plater said the studio has "no plans for the Switch at this time." This doesn't rule out the possibility of the game coming to Nintendo's hybrid console someday, but it's not happening right away, it seems.

Our full interview with de Plater covers a number of other topics about Shadow of War, including the evolution of the Nemesis system and how Monolith feels it would be "doomed" if the game is a failure. You can read it here.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Delay Prompts Huge Dropoff In Share Value

Rockstar Games today announced that its highly anticipated action game Red Dead Redemption 2 is now coming in Spring 2018 instead of the previously announced Fall 2018 window.

Unsurprisingly, the delay prompted parent publisher Take-Two Interactive's stock price to take a big hit. After closing today, May 22, at nearly an all-time high of $69.04, the company's stock price took a big hit in after-hours trading, falling to $62.90 at press time. That's a dropoff of almost 9 percent.

The delay was announced right around when the market closed at 4 PM ET. The dramatic-looking chart above shows that the stock price dropped basically right after the announcement.

Although you won’t find the word "wonder" in the traditional description for 4X (explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate) space simulations, it’s the key element when capturing the imagination of players building galactic empires.
