PlayStation and Xbox cross-play is inevitable, says Epic

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 2 hours, 58 mins ago

A more harmonized and less fractured console market is an inevitability, says Epic Games' Tim Sweeney.




Microsoft has embraced cross-play for a few good reasons, the biggest one being the company's unification of Windows 10 PCs with its Xbox One console family to make a future-proof gaming platform. But what about Sony? What incentives do they have to open up cross-play and allow gamers to play freely with Team Green's supporters? After all, isn't the console war something that tremendously helped Sony absolutely smash Microsoft in terms of PlayStation 4 console sales? Why would they give it up?


But alas, Epic Games boss Tim Sweeney is confident it'll happen...eventually.


"The audience is everyone," Sweeney told "Who do you know who doesn't have access to a computing device - iOS, Android, PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Mac? Very few people in the developed world. The audience is everyone, and that's a huge opportunity for the gaming platforms."

Witcher series passes 33 million cumulative sales

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 5 hours, 38 mins ago

The Witcher trilogy of games has sold through more than two dozen million copies to gamers, showing the strong pull of quality-driven AAA RPGs as well as CD Projekt RED's development prowess.




Geralt's saga remains one of the most unique trilogies on the market today, and the third chapter, The Wild Hunt, remains a strong sales driver for CD Projekt RED even three years after its release. Today the company announced that the games have cumulatively sold more than 33 million copies worldwide on all platforms as of 2017's tail end.


"With regard to sales, The Witcher 3 again provided the largest contribution to sales revenues," said CD Projekt RED's Chief Financial Officer Piotr Nielubowicz. The company pulled in about 460 million PLN in sales revenue, and based on internal charts, The Witcher 3 lead the other games by over tenfold.


"In quantitive terms, 2017 sales actually topped last year's results. Both previous installments in The Witcher trilogy also continue to sell well. I can proudly announce that by the end of 2017 over 33 million copies of The Witcher, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt had been purchased by gamers worldwide."

Cyberpunk 2077 will tap next-gen console power

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 9 hours, 3 mins ago

Cyberpunk 2077 is built on high-end tech that's well suited for modern and future console hardware, CD Projekt RED confirms.




We've known for a while that Cyberpunk 2077 is the biggest and most ambitious game CD Projekt RED has ever made. The game should feature living breathing worlds with advanced AI and flying cars alongside unique open-world interactions, all built with incredible next-gen technologies refined from the studio's arsenal of tools. This huge investment will ensure Cyberpunk 2077 is not only ready for today's PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC hardware, but also the future of gaming systems as well.


But there's just one small issue: CDPR isn't sure what Sony and Microsoft are cooking up next, despite the evidence the former is working on a PlayStation 5 system. "Next gen hasn't been announced yet, so we can only speculate. Technology-wise, Cyberpunk is very advanced. Our technology is ready to interface with future generations," CD Projekt RED's president Adam Kiciński said in a recent financial conference call.

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 16 hours, 16 mins ago

SEGA and Creative Assembly announced today on their website and Twitter that their first title in the Total War Saga series will be pushed back a couple weeks, this is happening because the development team would like to add some quality of life features to the UI and other aspects of the game before its release.


To go with the quality of life features, Creative Assembly are also tweaking the difficulty of the campaign, these tweaks are honed in on the titles AI and how it will be reacting to the players movements on the battlefield.

$60,000 worth of GPUs power Unreal Engine ray tracing demo

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 16 hours, 38 mins ago

Epic Games had one of the best demonstrations of real-time ray tracing technology at this years Game Developers Conference, with a peek into their "Reflections" ray tracing demonstration.



The new real-time ray tracing demonstration runs inside of Epic Games' own Unreal Engine, and was powered by NVIDIA's incredible DGX station which packs four Tesla V100s and costs a huge $60,000. Remember that RTX, NVIDIA's real-time ray tracing technology, is exclusive to the Volta GPU architecture until NVIDIA releases their next-gen GPU, which should be unveiled next week at GTC 2018.


The Reflections demo uses next-gen experimental lighting and rendering techniques in Unreal Engine, with Epic Games working closely with NVIDIA and ILMxLAB. It looks absolutely out of this world, but with $60,000 worth of hardware behind it, you'd kind of expect it.

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 20 hours, 41 mins ago

At GDC 2018, Peter Ellis, Art Director Epic Games, took to his panel to display off some Fortnite art pieces that could suggest that the battle royale shooter will be receiving some new maps in the future.




From the leaked images that can be found below we can see quite a diverse set of landscapes. It appears that Ellis or more specifically Epic Games wants Fortnite players to jump into a completely different map experience, the images range from desert maps, marshes and large building establishments.


Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that these images are 100% coming to Fortnite but from a development point of view wouldn't it be slightly silly to waste these amazing assets? If these aren't maps then what are they and how are they going to be implemented into the Fortnite experience? I suppose time will only tell, we will update you with any further information regarding the possibility of new maps.
