Far Cry 4, New Super Lucky’s Tale, Sniper Elite 4, UFC 4, and Watch Dogs 2 are the first to be FPS-Boosted
In a new Xbox Wire post, Xbox Senior Program Manager Paul Eng says the new FPS Boost feature will nearly double, and in a few cases quadruple, the framerates of most supported games. The level of the framerate boost depends on the game as well as the hardware. For instance, New Super Lucky’s Tale can now run up to 120 FPS, while UFC 4 specifically targets 60 FPS on Xbox Series S.
The two above games, as well as Far Cry 4, Watch Dogs 2, and Sniper Elite 4 are the only ones so far to support the feature, but Eng says more will be announced “soon.” There’s also an upcoming system update that will add new menu icons and system settings to let you toggle FPS Boost on and off, just like you would with Auto HDR. The new “Compatibility Options” menu should go live sometime this Spring.
Eng also clarifies that FPS Boost is being handled by Xbox itself without the need for the games’ developers to go back and tweak anything. The feature will be added to games just like any other patch, so make sure your client is up to date if you have a title you’d like boosted. Speaking of which, it’s been confirmed that “many” of the games that are getting the FPS Boost treatment will be available on Xbox Game Pass, so the feature doesn’t only apply to games you’ve bought.
What new PS5 and PS4 games are releasing in physical retailers and as part of the PlayStation Store update this week? Sure, the PlayStation 5 may be the new hotness, but the PlayStation 4 is eager to prove there’s life left in the old dog yet with a ton of new titles out this week, including Persona 5 Strikers.
The expression limited edition has just taken on a completely different meaning. You may remember that even before the end of last year, we announced the announcement of a very limited (very) version of the PlayStation 5 console – the equipment prepared by Caviar is covered with 18-carat gold. At that time, for some reason, information about twenty kilograms was reported, although today we know that the equipment decorated in this way has only 4 and a half kilograms of gold on it. We also know that the PS5 in this release has been valued at $ 500,000, or about PLN 1.85 million. Only nine copies are to be produced.
Do you think this is an expense without any sense? Tell this to the 1,342 people Caviar was going to receive a purchase inquiry from. It was revealed that the US basketball player LeBron James and a popular Russian businessman whose background data were not given were among those interested. The contractors predict that the waiting time for PlayStation 5 in the Golden Rock edition will be about four months. In addition, there are also specially decorated DualSense controllers – but not with gold, but with black painted crocodile skin. Nothing big.
For those interested, there are also Carbon and Alligator versions. The first price is only $ 5,830, or about PLN 21,500. The second model is decorated with alligator leather $ 8,140, or about PLN 30,000. In Caviar’s offer you will find really different wonders – such as the iPhone X with the image of Vladimir Putin, also in gold. And if you do not believe, please visit https://caviar.global/caviar-iphone-x-en/putin-golden-age/
Fire up the time machine and start playing today on today on Windows® 10 PC, Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, and Xbox One (the collection also plays great on PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility).
On PC, the Blizzard Arcade Collection is included in all three tiers of The Celebration Collection. On supported consoles, it’s included in the new Blizzard® 30-Year Celebration Collectionbundle, as well as available as a standalone product. To learn more about what else you’ll get with the Celebration Collection bundles, click here.
The Blizzard Arcade Collection includes two original console releases for The Lost Vikings, Blackthorne, and Rock N Roll Racing, allowing you to experience these games as you remember them (plus a few modern features like saving and rewinding).
It also contains new Definitive Editions of each game with additional upgrades like enhanced local multiplayer for The Lost Vikings and Rock N Roll Racing, new songs and artist performances for Rock N Roll Racing, a new level map for Blackthorne, localization for 12 languages, and more.
Last but not least, we’ve added a library of artifacts from these games’ heyday, like digital manuals, interviews with developers past and present, and classic artwork.
The Lost Vikings, Rock N Roll Racing, and Blackthorne continue to inspire us, so we’ve gathered Blizzard developers past and present to discuss what they love about each game and share some behind-the-scenes stories.
The archetype from the original Diablo returns, although with much more flexibility.
The original Diablo included a bow-wielding Rogue, but she didn’t reappear by name in Diablo 2 or Diablo 3. Over 24 years later, she’s finally making a comeback. The Rogue will be one of the first available classes in Diablo 4, joining the previously announced Barbarian, Sorceress, and Druid. Blizzard revealed the news during the BlizzCon opening ceremony today.
In the original Diablo, the Rogue was a ranged combat expert. That’ll be one possible build with Diablo 4’s Rogue, but series regulars will also recognize shades of the Assassin from Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction and the Demon Hunter from Diablo 3. If you want to go with traps and shadow magic, those will be viable options. As far as weapons go, Rogues can use swords, daggers, bows, and crossbows.
Earlier this week, I briefly spoke to Diablo 4 game director Luis Barriga about the class. It’s a high mobility class, as you’d expect, with several abilities that involve movement, such as the Dash melee ability.
“You dash forward, hit everything in your way,” says Barriga. “It’s not the most damaging ability, but because you move so much with it, it’s a very versatile ability. It lets you reposition, it lets you enter combat, it lets you wait for the enemies to do their big attack and then move in, and then get out of the way.”
It’s also possible to take the Diablo 1 “keep away” approach with a ranged build, and although Diablo isn’t the sort of RPG that involves stealth in the typical way (you’re there to kill everything), the Rogue does have some sneaky flavor.
Rogues have three possible specializations in Diablo 4. One of them is Shadow Realm, an ultimate ability which is literally used to escape into the Shadow Realm, where the Rogue becomes stealthed. It can also be used to separate enemies into manageable groups by pulling some of them into the shadows with you, where you get one second of invulnerability and deal 50 percent extra damage.
Another specialization comes from The Diablo 2 Assassin class: the Combo Points system. Combo Points are gained by using certain abilities, and spent with certain other abilities, which get an effectiveness boost from them. It’s a system that keeps players cycling abilities, and it’s also seen in World of Warcraft’s Rogue, as well as Valeera in Heroes of the Storm.
The final Rogue specialization is Exploit Weakness, a new “high skill, high reward” system which “lets you take advantage of more twitch-based gameplay,” says Barriga. With Exploit Weakness enabled, an icon will appear over the heads of enemies when they initiate certain attacks. Counter-attack when the icon appears, and you’ll get a big damage bonus.
These specializations will involve class-specific quests, too. “You will work with one of the world groups of Rogues around the world in Sanctuary,” said Barriga during a Diablo 4 stream following BlizzCon’s opening ceremony. “Whether it’s the Sisterhood of the Sightless Eye—the remnants of that Order—that you choose to work with, or the mercenaries of Kehjistan, or the outlaw smugglers of the swamps of Hawezar.”
(Note that the Sisterhood of the Sightless Eye is the group the original Diablo 1 Rogue was a member of.)
During that stream, Barriga and art director John Mueller also talked about the imbue system, which allows Diablo 4 Rogues to modify their attacks with elemental and other modifiers, such as Frost or Poison.
“Rain of Arrows with Frost and Rain of Arrows with Acid is completely different,” said Mueller. “You’re essentially freezing the battlefield [with the Frost imbue]. And then, I just love Poison imbue because of the gruesome deaths that all the monsters experience. And we’ve had a ton of fun making that art, so, it’s always fun to see a field of goat men melt into nothing. You just kill everything on the screen in a gory mess, which never really gets old.”
As someone who almost always picks a rogueish character in RPGs—the thieves and assassins are always the coolest—I’m glad to see her show up again in Diablo 4.
Diablo 4 was announced at BlizzCon 2019, but no release date was set back then, and no date has been announced here. It’s expected to be in development for a while longer, and will feature a big open world which contains other players, with horses to ride and PvP zones to brave. We’ll continue to update our guide to everything we know about Diablo 4 so far as we learn more this weekend.

The Burning Crusade Classic has been confirmed in a BlizzConline leak from an official press kit accidentally uploaded by Blizzard.
We do not have a release date in the press kit, but we do know it is coming in 2021. Burning Crusade Classic will roll out in phases and WoW Classic players can decide to progress their characters on TBC servers or new Classic Era servers (hints of Classic Fresh?).
Stay tuned for Burning Crusade guides and database pages coming to Wowhead soon!
BlizzardJourney through the Dark Portal once again in World of Warcraft®: Burning Crusade Classic™! Originally released in January 2007, The Burning Crusade summoned the heroes of Azeroth to the shattered and fel-scarred realm of Outland to stop an invasion of the demonic Burning Legion. In 2021, Blizzard Entertainment’s recreation of the first World of Warcraft expansion will give players from around the world a chance to return to Outland as it once was to relive an era of timeless adventure—or experience what awaits beyond the Dark Portal for the first time.
Rediscover the Broken World of Outland – Flee the fel reavers who roam Hellfire Peninsula, dive deep beneath the swamps of Zangarmarsh to confront what lurks below, and clash with the demonic agents of the Burning Legion in the shadow of the Black Temple.
Join the Fight as a Blood Elf or Draenei – The ranks of the Horde and the Alliance grow! Fight for the Horde as the blood elves, seeking a new source of the arcane power that once sustained them, or join the Alliance as the draenei, exiles from Outland in search of a new home.
The Saga Unfolds Over Time – Content from the original game will roll out in phases, at a cadence paced for the WoW Classic community. Prepare for the opening of the Black Temple, gear up to confront the gods of Zul’Aman, and gather your allies to face the fury of the Sunwell.
Burning Crusade Features Reborn – Prove your prowess in the Arena PvP system, enhance your gear with the Jewelcrafting profession, take to the skies over Outland on flying mounts, choose whether to seek the aid of the Aldor or the Scryers of Shattrath, and much more.
Choose Your Era – Prior to Burning Crusade Classic’s release, WoW Classic players can decide whether to advance each of their characters to the Burning Crusade era with the rest of their realm, or to continue playing the original WoW Classic content on new Classic Era servers.
Included With Existing World of Warcraft Subscriptions – As with WoW Classic, anyone who subscribes to World of Warcraft can also play Burning Crusade Classic at no additional cost, giving players the freedom to enjoy multiple eras of Azeroth at their own pace.

After 90 hours of playing, we are chose favorite photos. For a game like this, it’s very little time, for some even speedrun, the best storyline I’ve ever had. The game requires a thorough engine overhaul, but in terms of its plot and graphics, it is a real masterpiece, We are waiting impatiently for the story DLC.
Give a comment if you like our selection. Soon more photos and materials!
If I avoided bugs and content, the game would be 11/10, until you could feel the whole Night City in your veins as if you were born there, experiencing the fate of each character. Share your Photo Mode: D
With a hotfix that is now live, we’ve implemented a highest-layer-sharing system for players who wish to plunder Torghast on multiple characters.
Now, when you’ve completed a Torghast layer on any character on your account, your other characters will have access to it (as long as they meet the usual requirements for Torghast).
Players who have been running Torghast regularly should now find their highest layer available on their alts. This unlock sharing can’t look back very far though, so if you haven’t run Torghast in a while, you’ll need to complete a run on your main, and you’ll then see the higher layers available on your alts.
Please note: Twisting Corridors remains separately shared to alts, and completing Twisting Corridors only will not grant access to normal layers for other characters on the account.
There was a bit of confusion about the announcement of the new expansion pack, but a lot of things were explained in today’s IGN interview with Richard Lambert (Zenimax Chief Creative Director), so I figured I’d put everything we know about the upcoming expansion pack together in one post.
A NEW expansion called Blackwood will hit PC / MAC and Stadia on June 1 and consoles on June 8:
NEW map between Cyrodill and Shadofen with two important cities returning from previous Elder Scrolls games – Leyawiin (from Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion) and Gideon (from Elder Scrolls: Arena). The new land will be a mix of Argonian swamps and the green highlands of Cyrodill.
we will be able to find deadlands (reference to TES IV: Oblivion)
there will be another variation on the dolmens (dark anchors) called oblivion portals, where we will fight the forces of Mehrunes Dagon
the story of the expansion will be built around Dagon and his cult
NEW system – comrades – we will be able to take an NPC with us to fight by our side. We’ll have to do a job first to get them. At the premiere of the expansion, there will be two of them (an Imperial man named Bastion and a Dunmer woman who has no specific name yet), and each of them will have their own personality (we will be able to build relationships with them to gain various benefits – you must have considering that different characters have their preferences), and tasks (more will appear as the relationship develops). Companions will be able to play one of the three roles assigned by us (dps / tank / healer). They will use skills and equipment chosen and given to them by us. In order not to knock people out of immersion with a multitude of identical characters, they will have a generic NPC appearance. Each of these types of characters is to have its own personality and history. IMPORTANT: Companions cannot be used in PvP. In dungeons and trials, they will be a complement to the team if our group does not have 4 people for dungeon and 12 for trial (they will not be balanced for this content, so they will not be suitable for making more difficult normals or veterans). These characters are mainly being added for solo play due to the fact that there are changes to champion points that are likely to make content overland more difficult for the solo player. We can compare the companions to the Diablo 3 bots that helped us when we weren’t in the group.
Champion points 2.0 – rebuilding the system. The developers wanted players to be more focused on one thing (instead of being strong at everything). Passive skills will work as they currently do, and there will be active skills that you can only have a few (subsequent levels will unlock more). The NEW soft cap will be changed from 810 to 1200. This means that at 1200cp we will have the maximum number of passives and assets selected (4 red, 4 blue and 4 green). The total capped level will now be 3600. Levels between 1200 and 3600 won’t make us stronger, but instead will give us the ability to unlock more active skills to swap for current skills without having to reset points.
everything will happen 800 years before TES: Arena
A NEW tutorial giving players the choice of where to start their adventure
NEW servers to help fight latency
BEFORE Blackwood we will get a dungeon DLC that will start the story. It will be called Flames of Ambition and will be available on March 8 for PC and March 16 for consoles. After FoA in the second quarter, we will get a quest with an expansion prologue.
After Blackwood we will get another DLC continuing the story. It will be called Deadlands and it will hit us in the fourth quarter of this year. Between Blackwood and Deadlands, Q3 will be getting a small dungeon DLC (currently unnamed).
You can pre-order Blackwood to get extra items post-launch:
Dremora Kynreeve Outfit
Deadlands Wamasu Pet
Iron Atronach Crate
3 × Blackwood Treasure Maps
2 × Experience Scrolls And these things immediately after purchase:
Nagahide Welwa Ravager mount
Nightmare Bear Cub pet IMPORTANT: Nightmare Bear Cub pet will be available ONLY UNTIL March 17, 2021

As we’ve already noted this weekend, Microsoft put out a list highlighting (almost) 30 games coming to Xbox as console launch exclusives in 2021 recently, but also teased that it has “so much more in store”.
A developer at DICE added to this by suggesting the company has “quite a few games” still to announce for 2021, and now Windows Central editor and noted Xbox insider Jez Corden has also clarified what he knows.
[The list] did say that it was all the announced games, as if to say more are coming too, and I know of at least two games – big games – that aren’t on that list, that are coming from Xbox in 2021.”
Jez made these comments on the latest episode of The Xbox Two podcast, where he also explained that he didn’t want to “ruin the teams’ surprise” as he believes the developers should get to announce it first.
“When it comes to stuff that I don’t think will leak, I think it’s much cooler if the announcement comes as part of a surprise, part of a big show, and the team gets to announce it themselves.”
Wednesday saw the reveal of some really good news — the #StarWars universe is expanding beyond EA. Ubisoft is currently in development on a new Star Wars video game that uses the open-world concept popularized by titles such as Breath of the Wild and Spider-Man. Details on this new Ubisoft Star Wars release are slim, but apparently, the game is being developed by Ubisoft Massive which is responsible in part for The Crew 2 and The Division 2. Nothing is known about where the game is set in the Star Wars timeline or what characters we’ll be following. The best bit of unspoken news here is that because the game is being developed by Ubisoft, this Star Wars title is almost guaranteed to see a debut on Stadia, likely even day and date with other platforms. That’s really exciting!
From now until the end of the year, US Xbox players who donate their Microsoft Rewards towards the effort to contain and stamp out COVID-19 will have their donations matched by Microsoft.
Microsoft started giving players the option to donate their Microsoft Rewards points to the CDC Foundation back in April, and the company says that players have contributed “hundreds of thousands of dollars” to the organisation since then. Building on that philanthropic success, Microsoft then allowed players to put their points toward the United Nations Foundation and GlobalGiving in their coronavirus response efforts, too, and it’s the former that has announced Microsoft’s most recent pledge to match donations until the end of the year.
“U.S. Xbox players, get in the game AND get in the fight against COVID-19,” announced United Nations Foundation on its official Twitter channel. “Now through the end of the year, Microsoft Rewards will be matching all point donations to the COVID-19 Fund for [World Health Organisation].”
You can earn Microsoft Reward points on Xbox by signing up through the app on your console or visiting the official site. Once you do, you’ll earn points by playing games, with bonuses for completing special punch cards and Xbox Game Pass quests. For every 1,000 points you contribute, Microsoft pledges to donate one real dollar to your charity of choice – and now that donation will be matched by Microsoft. You can donate straight from your Xbox One dashboard or within your Microsoft Rewards app.
