      Dying Light PS5 and Xbox Series X|S patch in development
      by Asher Madan

      Dying Light is a first-person action game that focuses on the aftermath of a zombie outbreak. While the premise may sound rather stereotypical, the parkour and visceral action elevate the experience. It's regarded as a cult classic nowadays, and fans have been asking for a PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S for a while now.

      Today, the game's official Twitter account said that the team is working on a patch for current-generation consoles, and that more details would be revealed soon. Given the fact that the sequel, Dying Light 2: Stay Human, was pushed back until 2022, here's hoping that this patch will tide fans over until February.

      Dying Light looks great on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but upgrading it to a higher resolution and faster frame rate should help. The combat is quite fast-paced but feels a little clunky due to last-generation limitations.

      You can pick up Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition for $29.99 through the Microsoft Store or the platform of your choice. Furthermore, you can pre-order Dying Light 2 for $59.99 at the same store ahead of its release next year.

      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.

      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.

      Call of Duty: Vanguard campaign pits you against the Fourth Reich
      by Asher Madan

      Today, Activision released a new trailer for Call of Duty: Vanguard. The game is a first-person shooter that's set during World War II. However, there's a slight twist to the campaign this time around. Instead of playing through a standard historical scenario, you lead an internal special operations team to take down a new Nazi commander who wants to bring about the Fourth Reich. Suffice to say, he needs to be stopped.

      Your team is made up of soldiers who have their own demons to wrestle with. It's unclear how individual backstories affect the campaign, but there may be problems because you're teaming up with people who have issues with authority.

      The next-generation visuals presented in the trailer are spectacular, and it appears to be running at a smooth 60 frames per second at 4K resolution. Aside from the story snippets, the lighting and particle effects are the highlight of the video. Seeing so many explosions and smoke at the same time definitely enhances immersion and builds tension. There are a lot of rather dramatic set-piece moments too.

      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.
