Twilight Spirits is NetEase Games' new action MORPG that will start open beta in China on June 29th. The game will be also available on Steam around the end of June, most likely on the same date the Chinese open beta starts. It's a shame that the Steam version doesn't support English language but the good thing is it doesn't block IP.
The game is all about simple but exciting combat and it won't have open world, raid, race, and character creation, but has instance-based gameplay and boss battles. And of course it has a good story. Games that are similar to Twilight Spirits are Vindictus and Dragon Nest.

Russian developer Battlestate Games' realism-focused, story-driven FPS / MMO hybrid Escape from Tarkov will enter closed beta stage in July 2017. Players who pre-ordered the game will automatically get the access to play the CBT to take a look at the new features including a new map, weapon parts, new loot, economy rebalancing and the insurance system, etc.
Escape from Tarkov not just has realistic, hardcore gameplay but also stunning graphics. Watch the alpha gameplay video below.
New Gameplay Features in the Closed Beta:
Insurance – For a small amount of in game currency, players can insure weapons and equipment, increasing the chance of retaining it
Loot and Economy – The CBT will feature a new Merchant, new barter loot, medicines and additional useful items for players to buy, sell and trade. Economic balancing means items will be made available in marketplaces for barter and in loot drops based on their popularity and rarity within the economics system

Locations – There will be a total of four locations available to play- Customs, Woods, Factory and Shoreline – all with different sizes and terrains. The Shoreline location will be newest and biggest map addition to the CBT.
General Chat – Chat channels will be available to all players online in the game, allowing players to share useful information and group up for raids.
The game's storyline takes place in the Russian city of Tarkov, which has been sealed off by roadblocks and plunged into chaos as warfare rages between private military companies throughout the urban battlefield. Escape from Tarkov's Hazardous Environment Combat Simulator employs a number of custom system modules to create incredibly immersive gameplay and make players feel the reality of their surroundings. Combatants will be able to customize their weapons, creating nearly-limitless, though realistic, combinations of weapon features, while learning skills that can improve, or, in a new twist, degrade over time, depending on how much use they get from players.
Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man earned its fair share of accolades at E3 2017 but many are wondering about the number of villains to be expected. We know that Mr. Negative and Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin will be factors but what about some of the more infamous villains in the universe?
According to creative director Bryan Intihar in an interview with Electric Playground at E3 2017, there’s a pretty big cast in the game. Villains, of course, are a part of it.
“We have a great cast and Peter is just one of many, many characters we have in the game. It’s a big, big cast. We have a lot of classic villains and we have a lot of newcomers as well.”
We’ll have to wait and find out which villains made the cut and which didn’t. But it seems safe to bet that Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus or even Mysterio could make an appearance in some shape or form. Which villains are you hoping to see? Let us know below.
Vicarious Visions’ Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will have a number of Trophies when it releases but there will be a few more to come. A Trophy list revealed by Exophase indicates two extra Trophies that are part of something called the Lost Treasures DLC.
The Silver Trophy is The Crown Jewel where you must “seek and destroy” to obtain it. An Ancient Antiquity is the Gold Trophy and the description is “Do hard time”. What those could mean remains to be seen and neither Vicarious nor Activision have ever indicated that the Lost Treasures DLC exists.
Adding to the mystery even more is the fact that the first Crash Bandicoot is the one that includes DLC trophies.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is out on June 30th for PS4 and will include Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot: Warped, all developed by Naughty Dog in the PlayStation One era.
Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered has finally been announced to release on June 27th as a standalone game. It will come to PS4 first and then head to Xbox One and PC later. It will retail for $39.99 in the United States.
Along with the campaign and all 16 multiplayer maps at launch, PS4 players will also have a chance to participate in the “Days of Summer” event. This event will last for five weeks and will include XP events, new playlists, in-game giveaways and so on with a new Summer map available throughout. More information will be revealed on Tuesday for the same.
It should be noted that the Variety Map Pack will not be included with the game. This must be purchased separately for $14.99 and will include four maps – Broadcast, Chinatown, Creek and Killhouse – along with 10 Rare Supply Drops.

Respawn will be going back and updating the sequel to their hit shooter – Titanfall 2 – later this year, to make it enhanced for the Xbox One X. The Xbox One X enhancements will make the game run at 4K, as well as give it dynamic super scaling, according to the Titanfall 2 Official Website.
What does this mean? Well, 4K resolution is rather self explanatory (and is likely to be native); dynamic super scaling, on the other hand, basically renders the game at a higher resolution, while then shrinking the image back down for a 1080p screen, to lead for a higher quality image even if you have don’t have a 4K screen.
So it sounds like Xbox One X owners will make out good with Titanfall 2 for sure- now to see whether or not these updates end up botched like updates for the PS4 Pro so often did. Titanfall 2 is available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch saw a significant update on the Public Test Realm server lately that introduced a highly requested feature – the ability to save and export Highlights.
The new Highlights system allows you to keep any highlights for 24 hours and they remain even if you exit the game. Along with the top five highlights of a game, players can also record their own highlights in the middle of a match. If you want to keep the highlights permanently, it’s possible to download them on to your system, tinkering with the resolution, quality and frame rate to improve the final video.
But perhaps the more significant change is that to the Loot Boxes. Duplicates gained in Loot Boxes will be reduced significantly and to compensate for Credits that you’d otherwise get from dupes, the amount of currency earned will also increase. This should assuage many complaints about the Loot Box system, especially in light of the Anniversary Event.
What are your thoughts on these changes? Let us know in the comments.
