Edge Dev build 87.0.654.0 now out with a couple of minor features and bug fixes
by Abhay Venkatesh
After a slightly delayed Dev channel release last week thanks to the virtual Ignite conference, Microsoft has released this week’s Edge Dev build that brings a couple of new features and a bunch of fixes. The update bumps up the version to 87.0.654.0. Considering that this week’s build comes just five days after the previous one, it is a minor release.
The company also detailed a new ‘Web capture’ feature this week that brings a screenshot tool within the browser, mimicking the capability that was present in legacy Edge. The tool is currently live in Edge Dev and Canary builds. The other new features in this build include the wider rollout of the Share, Copy, and Paste settings for URLs that lets users paste website URLs as linked text.
Here are the two new features being added in this build:
As usual, there is a list of fixes that improve the reliability of the browser, which is a short list this week:
There are also a host of fixes for changed behavior:
Lastly, there are known issues for the release that users should be aware of, including some issues that have been around for a while relating to playback on YouTube. Here is the complete list of known issues:
In other Edge news, the company announced that it will finally be bringing Edge to Linux next month. For those interested, Dev and Canary builds will be made available for download here.
As is customary with these weekly updates, they should automatically be downloaded and installed. However, you can also head into settings and go to the About Microsoft Edge page to check for an update and pull it for a download.

Torchlight III releases on October 13 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, NS version announced
by Namerah Saud Fatmi
At the beginning of this year, it was revealed that Torchlight Frontier was renamed to Torchlight III, ditching its MMO elements. In June, the action RPG made its way to Early Access on Steam, with Acts 1 and 2 available to play for $29.99. Back then, a release date for the full launch of Torchlight III was not known.
Today developer Echtra Games finally unveiled the release date for the complete version of Torchlight III for multiple platforms. The ARPG will be making its way to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms on October 13, 2020. Players who bought the game through Early Access on Steam will be upgraded to the complete version free of charge.
Max Schaefer, CEO of Echtra Games commented on the upcoming release:
As for the price, the full version of Torchlight III will be available to purchase for current-gen consoles and PC via Steam at the price of $39.99. It was also revealed that a Nintendo Switch version of the latest Torchlight title will launch at some point later this year.

Microsoft Store adds '60 fps+' badge for supported Xbox Series X|S games
by Asher Madan
The focus of Microsoft's next-generation consoles appears to be higher frame rates, in addition to ray tracing and overall performance improvements. To that effect, the company has introduced a new badge on the Microsoft Store that notifies gamers of the supported frame rates for games. This morning, we noticed that the Yakuza: Like a Dragon Store listing included a '60 fps+' tag to denote the frame rates for the game on Xbox Series X|S, along with tags such as 'Smart Delivery' and '4K Ultra HD'.
The company is aiming for 4K 120 FPS for the Xbox Series X, and this means that the title will feature a 60 FPS mode, but it could go higher. You can take a look at the console's specifications that feature a strong CPU and GPU to deliver this level of performance.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon is an upcoming third-person action game from Sega, and it was recently moved up to November 10 from November 13 to coincide with the Xbox Series X|S launch. Instead of focusing on the infamous Kazuma Kiryu, Yakuza: Like a Dragon follows the story of Ichiban Kasuga, a low-ranking grunt of a low-ranking family in Tokyo. Taking cues from the past Yakuza games, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is a lengthy role-playing experience that features dynamic combat, unique jobs, odd mini-games, and much more.

Microsoft revealed today that the Games with Gold program is returning next month with another batch of four games for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members. This time around, there are the usual two Xbox One games, but the other two are split between one Xbox 360 game and one game for the original Xbox. Obviously, they can all be played on the company's current generation of consoles, and they'll actually be available to play on the next generation of consoles as well.
Here are the free Games with Gold titles announced today and their arrival dates:
Slayaway Camp: Butcher's Cut (Xbox One, October 1 - 31)
Maid of Sker (Xbox One, October 16 - November 15)
Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy (Xbox, Ocrtober 1 - 15)
Costume Quest (Xbox 360, October 16 - 31)
As usual, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers need to claim their games between the designated dates, and if they cancel their subscription, they'll only be able to keep the Xbox and Xbox 360 games.
There's still time left to claim some of last month's Games with Gold. You've got until the end of the month to grab The Division (Xbox One) and Armed and Dangerous (Xbox 360), and you've got until October 15 to claim de Blob 2 (Xbox One).
