Assassin's Creed Odyssey Gets New Game Plus This Month

about X hours ago from

Ubisoft has announced that New Game Plus is coming to Assassin's Creed Odyssey. The mode is scheduled to release before the end of February, but an exact date hasn't been revealed yet.

The announcement was made via a tweet on Assassin's Creed's Twitter account. The tweet is fairly vague, so any information on how New Game Plus might work--such as whether you'll be able to restart as the protagonist you didn't play as or whether you'll keep all your ship lieutenants you recruited through story missions--has not been revealed. However, another follow-up tweet revealed that more information about New Game Plus will be coming next week.

Next month, the remastered edition of Assassin's Creed III launches for Xbox One, PS4, and PC on March 29. The game includes a remastered version of Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD as well, and includes all the DLC for both--such as the three-part Tyranny of King Washington expansion. Both titles will feature 4K HDR support, and on PC, Xbox One X, and PS4 Pro, the games will play with "higher resolution textures, a new graphics engine, and several other graphical enhancements." You can buy this collection standalone, but it also comes included in the season pass for Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

How To Watch The Grammys On PS4, Xbox One, And Nintendo Switch

The 61 Annual Grammy Awards will air live on Sunday, February 10 on CBS. But what if you want to watch through one of your gaming consoles? Whether you've cut the cord or you just want to watch in between gaming rounds, you can watch the award show right from your dashboard.

Both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have the CBS All Access app, which will be streaming the Grammy Awards live. A CBS All Access subscription costs $6 per month, or $10 for the commercial-free option. If you'd just like to check out the service and use it to watch the Grammys, you can sign up for a one-week free trial to gain access to the award show along with all of the other content. Keep in mind that charges will start automatically once the free trial ends, unless you manually cancel.

If you'd rather watch on Nintendo Switch, you'll need the Hulu app instead. CBS isn't carried in the standard Hulu line-up, but it is carried with the highest-tier Live TV package--ordinarily priced at $45 per month. Like CBS All Access, though, you can sign up for a free trial to test the service and watch the Grammys. Charges will apply automatically after the free trial ends.

Buy A Nintendo Switch And Get Free Eshop Credit In New Bundle

Outside of the holidays, it's rare to find deals on Nintendo Switch hardware, but Nintendo has announced a new bundle that serves as a good entry point if you're interested in picking the console up. The bundle goes on sale starting February 15 and includes a system with neon red and blue Joy-Cons, as well as $35 credit for its digital storefront, the Eshop.

The bundle will be available at retailers around the US and costs $300, the standard price of a Switch console. While the bonus credit can be put toward any Eshop purchase, the storefront is home to a preponderance of great--and fairly cheap--indie games, such as Golf Story, Celeste, and the recently released Advance Wars-like strategy game Wargroove.

The credit can also be used to purchase DLC, which many of Switch's must-have titles have received. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's expansion pass costs $20, as does Splatoon 2's single-player focused Octo Expansion. If you pick up Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, its fighters pass runs for $25 and will give you access to five of its planned DLC characters, including Persona 5's Joker.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice PC Specs Revealed

about X hours ago from

Activision has revealed the PC system requirements fo From Software's upcoming Souls-like game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice via the title's Steam page. The minimum and recommended requirements aren't all that different from what you needed for Dark Souls III, so if you played From Software's 2016 Souls game on PC, you should be fine.

The minimum requirements for Sekiro are slightly higher than what they were for Dark Souls III though. For Sekiro, you need either an Intel Core i3-2100 or AMD FX-6300 processor that's paired with 4 GB of RAM and either a Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 or AMD Radeon HD 7950 GPU. You'll have to bump up your system's specs to run the game on its recommended settings, obviously, but the Steam page does not reveal the difference in targeted resolution and framerate between the two.

Below, we've outlined the full list of both the minimum and recommended PC system requirements.

Steam Awards 2018 Announced, But Most Winners Aren't From 2018

about X hours ago from

The Steam Awards have been announced, honoring games and developers as voted by the community. This year's awards spanned eight categories, from traditional ones like Game of the Year and VR Game of the Year to more unusual selections like Better With Friends.

Unlike many annual awards, though, these categories largely weren't restricted to games that released in calendar year 2018. Instead, ongoing games were eligible for accolades, and many of them received it. Only one of the winners was a game released last year: Assassin's Creed Odyssey for Best Alternate History.

Game of the Year was won by PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the battle royale game that helped start the now popular trend. PUBG was first released into early access in Spring 2017, and then hit its full official release in December of the same year. It has remained popular, though, especially as evidenced by winning the Steam Awards.
