The Division is only $10 on the Ubisoft Store right now

Ubisoft is celebrating E3 2018 with a sale, and there are some pretty good bargains to be had. The jewel in the crown is The Division, which can be had for a mere $10 (or $15, if you're in Australia). Meanwhile, if you want the Gold Edition bundling all of the game's paid DLC, that'll set you back $18.

The Battlefield subreddit is such a mess that mods have banned posts about ‘historical accuracy’

EA and DICE are committed to putting women in prominent roles in upcoming World War 2 FPS Battlefield 5. Some Reddit posters aren't too pleased with that decision, or with a prosthetic arm featured in one of the game's trailers, and have taken to the subreddit to criticize Battlefield 5's historical accuracy, defend its historical accuracy, or argue that historical accuracy doesn't matter. It's now gotten so bad that the subreddit's moderators have banned posts arguing about historical accuracy altogether.

The Binding of Isaac creator Edmund McMillen is working on a multiplayer game

Edmund McMillen has been busy. Six weeks ago, he released the final free content booster pack for The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+. A few weeks prior, he and James Id released the first trailer for their upcoming match-four dungeon-crawler, The Legend of Bum-bo. And a few weeks before that, McMillen said his delayed, cancelled and now revived game Mewgenics is back on track. Apparently McMillen's still got free time, though, because judging from a recent string of tweets, he's got a new multiplayer game in the works.

The Dying Light 2 announcement at Microsoft's E3 press event was made significantly cooler by the surprising news that cold fusion-powered RPG writing machine Chris Avellone is working on it. As we said in our report, Avellone's participation "signals a significant evolution for the series" by giving it a much greater focus on narrative and outcomes.

Fallout 76's 'Country Roads' will be sold on iTunes to raise funds for charity

The first teaser for Fallout 76, as is the tradition, started out musically: In this case with a cover of John Denver's 1971 classic Country Roads. I can't say that it grabbed me in quite the same way as The Ink Spots, but I really like what Bethesda is doing with it outside of the game: The cover track will be released on iTunes on July 4, with all funds raised going to support Habit for Humanity.

Black Ops 4's DLC maps are locked in a season pass, and players aren't happy

The Call of Duty community is in an uproar over Activision's plans for Black Ops 4 DLC, which will see post-release multiplayer maps locked behind a "Black Ops Pass". The pass will include a "bonus Zombies experience" called Classified plus four more "all-new Zombies experiences," four exclusive Blackout characters, and 12 multiplayer maps. As numerous unhappy threads on the Black Ops 4 subreddit have pointed out, that's going to split the community between those who are willing to pony up for the pass, and those who are not.
