      Call of Duty: Vanguard - Zombies trailer has grotesque undead and towering overlords
      by Asher Madan

      Recently, Activision released a trailer for Call of Duty: Vanguard that detailed the story. The game is a first-person shooter — just like its predecessors — that's set during World War II. However, this time you lead a special operations team to take down a Nazi commander who wants a Fourth Reich.

      Zombies has always been a popular and important mode in past Call of Duty games, and Call of Duty: Vanguard is no exception. Today, the company released a trailer that gives us a better look at Call of Duty: Vanguard - Zombies. As expected, another crazed Nazi commander is up to no good and it's up to you to stop him. However, there's also another larger supernatural threat to contend with.

      While the trailer may not be as visually spectacular as the Call of Duty: Vanguard campaign, it's still looks like it could be a great-looking multiplayer experience. Hopefully, some of the low textures that are prevalent in the video will be ironed out when the game launches next month.

      Call of Duty: Vanguard is expected to launch on November 5, 2021, starting at $59.99. You can purchase the game through the Microsoft Store or the platform of your choice, like PlayStation or PC. When pre-ordering, there are a number of editions to choose from that give you access to post-launch content and much more.

      Call of Duty: Vanguard writers want to create iconic characters like Halo's Master Chief
      by Asher Madan

      Recently, Activision released a new trailer for Call of Duty: Vanguard. The game is a first-person multiplayer shooter that's set during World War II. However, this time around you have to take down a Nazi commander who wants to bring about the Fourth Reich.

      Speaking during New York Comic Con, Call of Duty: Vanguard writer Sam Maggs provided more details about future plans for the sub-franchise and creating memorable characters. Maggs said the following. Important parts of the panel were transcribed by VGC.

      Depending on how well Call of Duty: Vanguard does, the sequels may be greenlit. The trailer seems to indicate a tense story with soldiers who have their own demons to wrestle with. Maybe these new characters will be as memorable as Halo's Master Chief, but only time will tell. Call of Duty definitely needs memorable heroes, that's for sure!

      Call of Duty: Vanguard is expected to launch on November 5, 2021, starting at $59.99. You can purchase the game through the Microsoft Store or the platform of your choice, like PlayStation or PC. When pre-ordering, there are a number of editions to choose from that give you access to post-launch content and much more.

      Fallout 3 update gets rid of Games for Windows Live requirement
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Microsoft's defunct Games for Windows Live (GFWL) platform is no longer plaguing Fallout 3. The 2008-released hugely impactful RPG by Bethesda received an update out of nowhere on Steam that removes the requirements for the service entirely, finally letting owners launch and enjoy the game without resorting to workarounds. Funnily enough, the removal arrives only after Microsoft acquired Bethesda.

      GFWL was Microsoft's original attempt at bringing in PC gamers to the Xbox Live ecosystem, but it was not very successful, to say the least. Grand Theft Auto IV was another game that removed the requirement only last year after issues with generating new activation keys.

      The GOG version of Fallout 3 has been GFWL-free since its first arrival on the DRM-free storefront, but the Steam version has been stubbornly kept intact without changes for the last 12 years or so.

      The tiny update, named 1.7.04, weighs around 5MB, and is now available for Fallout 3 and its Game of the Year variant. The patch notes on Steam bluntly reads "The title no longer requires Games for Windows Live and will now launch." If problems come up in existing installations, a reinstall of the game is recommended as well. Meanwhile, a readme in the game files add that "Improvements to stability and performance (LargeAddressAware and thread setting updates)" have been made as well.

      It's unclear what sort of an impact will this have on the massive modding scene for the title, considering even slight changes to game files can affect entire libraries. At the same time, for anyone looking to jump in for the first time, a hefty sale has hit the entire Fallout franchise, bringing down the price of Fallout 3 base game to just $3.

      Quake gets 4K 120 FPS upgrade on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S
      by Asher Madan

      Recently, Bethesda — now owned by Microsoft — released Quake for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game offers a lot of enhancements like upgraded lighting and resolution, but it didn't take advantage of PlayStation 5 (PS5), Xbox Series S, or Xbox Series X. Luckily, that changed today.

      Bethesda just announced that the PS5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X upgrade is now available for free to existing consumers. The team said the following on its website.

      The game runs at 4K resolution and up to 120 frames per second (FPS) on all three consoles. Yes, even the Xbox Series S can render the title at 4K and 120 FPS. However, you'll need a 120 Hz-capable display to see the benefits of the faster frame rate.

      Xbox owners will automatically be upgraded to the new version if Quake is installed on a current-generation console. However, PS5 owners will have to go to the store and manually download a new version or a file called "PS5|Full|Quake PS5 Upgrade".

      You can purchase Quake through the Microsoft Store or the platform of your choice for $9.99. Xbox Game Pass subscribers can pick it up for $8.99 since it's a part of Xbox Game Pass.

      Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy gets bombastic launch trailer, hits October 26
      by Asher Madan

      Square Enix seems to be on a roll when it comes to Marvel games. The publisher released Marvel's Avengers around this time last year, and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy hits consoles and PC on October 26, 2021. While Marvel's Avengers received poor reviews at launch, judging from its Metacritic score, developer Eidos-Montréal wants to change that by giving us a Marvel game with complex combat and a hilarious story.

      Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy has gone gold, meaning that the game's ready to be shipped and only bug fixes have to happen before launch. We also got a proper launch trailer since the game will be available in two weeks. You can take a look at it below.

      The bombastic trailer manages to capture the intense story, but also the fact that the Guardians of the Galaxy are a hilarious group of heroes. The fact that there are dialogue choices in the game should enhance replayability. The visuals also look stunning and it'll be interesting to see how it plays on current-generation consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

      You can pre-order Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy through the Microsoft Store or the platform of your choice. The game starts at $59.99, but there's a Digital Deluxe Edition available for $10 more that includes additional content like costumes.
