Players will have access to three different chapters of time.'Voyage of Despair' will take players to the Titanic, where their goal is to steal an artifact. IX will throw players back in time to the Roman era, forcing gamers to take the main stage as Gladiators in the Roman Colosseum.

Battle royale revenue to grow 600% in 2018

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 8 hours, 55 mins ago

The battle royale market is expected to rise astronomically throughout 2018 as major publishers like EA and Activision jump into the craze.

 

battle-royale-revenue-grow-600-2018_4

 

Back when PUBG saw its huge meteoric shift in sales I predicted that the game would eventually be knocked off its earnings mantle by billion-dollar publishers once they entered the battle royale arena. Interestingly enough, Epic Games has taken the throne with its free-to-play BR game Fortnite, which has earned a massive $1 billion in revenues across all platforms in less than a year. Now another major shift is on the horizon as the Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises ready their respective premium salvos.

 

According to analyst firm SuperData, revenues gleaned from battle royale games will spike by over six-fold this year to a tremendous $12.6 billion. The firm predicts both Battlefield V's and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's new battle royale modes will cause segment earnings to jump by over 600% year-over-year.

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 11 hours, 4 mins ago

Fortnite has made over $1 billion from in-game purchases in less than a year, according to the latest analyst reports.

 

fortnite-makes-over-1-billion-less-year_2

 

Since October 2017, Epic Games' towering battle royale sensation Fortnite has pulled in over $1 billion in revenues across all platforms, analyst firm SuperData reports in its latest brief. On a month-to-month earnings basis the game has seen consistent growth: in April Fortnite earned $296 million, whereas May's spending increased by almost 8% to $318 million.

 

Fortnite's free-to-play model, which monetizes cosmetic items like skins, drives the game's strong revenue growth. Fortnite's staggering success owes itself to many factors including its accessibility across mobile, consoles and PC, alongside successful engagement monetization strategies including skins, battle passes, and seasonal events to maintain MAUs and DAUs.

Treyarch tease COD: Black Ops 4 zombies Comic-Con reveal

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 20 hours, 38 mins ago

At the start of January this year, we saw the gruesome trailer for Call of Duty: WWII zombies The Darkest Shore. Treyarch are now teasing the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 zombies ahead of the reveal at this years Comic-Con.

 

 

The tease comes from the Call of Duty Twitter page and features just two red glowing eyes on what seems to be an enemies skull. Most interesting about this teaser though is that we haven't seen these coloured eyes before, as the Call of Duty Twitter responded to some fans comments saying "Prepare for a different breed." This could be a strong form of evidence to suggest that players will be getting a completely different zombie, perhaps a new stronger mob that will come in high quantities, or just a single high quality boss that will need a lot more fire power to take down.

 

Treyarch have released this teaser ahead of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies Comic-Con panel, which has been planned for Thursday, July 19, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (4:00 p.m. EDT). During this panel, everything will be revealed about the upcoming mode, until then we will just have to deal with the teasers that Treyarch keep rolling out. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is scheduled for release on October 12th and will be available on PC, Xbox One and PC.

Call of Cthulhu releases this Halloween

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 21 hours, 8 mins ago

It appears that the Steam Store has revealed the release date for Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studios' Call of Cthulhu title. H.P. Lovecraft may actually turn in his grave when the game releases this October.

 

call-cthulhu-release-halloween-oct-31st-2018_01

 

Focus Home Interactive, the publisher for Call of Cthulhu has not officially stated anything regarding a release date, but a date has appeared on the Steam Store's listing for the game. Steam usually doesn't publish release dates for games unless the date has been finalized, so we should expect an official announcement from either the publisher or developer (Cyanide Studios) in the coming weeks.

 

If the Steam date is correct, this will mean the Lovecraftian horror themed title will be releasing on Halloween, October 31st. Quite a convenient time to release Call of Cthulhu, perhaps the developers are hoping for that little bit more extra immersion Halloween will give, as players jump onto their harrowing title for the first time.
