Playstation Plus’ April 2021 Games got announced via the Playstation blog, here’s their post below!

Oddworld: Soulstorm* | PS5**

Oddworld’s Abe returns in this action adventure platformer set directly after the events of 2014’s Oddworld: New ‘N’ Tasty. Having undergone a transformation from clueless cog in a mega-corporate machine to unlikely hero and beacon of hope, Abe must now save his fellow Mudokons by any means necessary. As you recruit more followers, stick to stealth and puzzle solve to survive or scavenge goods and craft an arsenal to liberate your friends. In Oddworld: Soulstorm, you will begin to understand the power of many will be needed to solve problems that the individual alone cannot.

Days Gone | PS4

Ride into a desperate, dog-eat-dog open world of the Pacific Northwest as drifter and bounty hunter, Deacon St. John. Risk the threats of the broken road on the back of your trusty bike as you face swarms of mindless feral Freakers – and equally terrifying humans. Unpredictable weather and different times of day and night can cause incredible danger and shocking surprises… and everything wants you dead. Devise your strategies as you customise weapons and skills, craft traps and upgrade your bike as you try and survive the unforgiving wilderness. 

Zombie Army 4: Dead War | PS4

Hitler’s hordes are back for more in this spine-chilling shooter from the makers of Sniper Elite 4. Abominable occult enemies, epic weapons and a harrowing new campaign for 1-4 players*** await in 1940s Europe, as you fight to save humankind from undead Armageddon. Continue the alternate history of Zombie Army Trilogy in huge new levels, and uncover a sinister plan that takes the Survivor Brigade across Italy and beyond. 

CD Project Red’s Cyberpunk Multiplayer / Development

CD Projekt Red also announced that it will be developing AAA games in both The Witcher and Cyberpunk franchises simultaneously in 2022. Only time will tell if this stays true to their intent to minimize stressful conditions.

CD Projekt Red also announced that they will be looking into bringing an online or multiplayer component into all of their games (not just Cyberpunk). With that being said, they initially had planned for Cyberpunk to be “the one” that would do it but now only time will tell if this will come to reality. Fans should not expect this anytime soon as CDPR (Cd Projekt Red) is still implementing bugs / fixes for the game and has planned DLCs as well as a next gen upgrade.

Finally CDPR will be says they will be changing their marketing campaign strategy moving forward. They will be waiting closer to release / the game being finished before showing in depth gameplay. They will also manage expectations better and do better at keeping the reality grounded in terms of what gamers are to expect. Here’s hoping things get better!

DYING LIGHT 2 Gets Development Update

The developers of Dying Light 2 gave an update on development for their upcoming sequel. In the short clip we see the development team read mean tweets directed at them about how long fans have been waiting for the game or any news to come out. The developers explain that they wanted to make sure that the game coming out was ready for everybody to play at its best quality.

Both sides make a case. As gamers, we’re consumers so when we spend money on a product we would like to have full transparency about what it is we’re investing in (which means updates are appreciated). However this doesn’t excuse berating, threatening and insulting the development team of the game. Developers have personal responsibilities outside of making the games we all love and enjoy so & at the end of the day, they’re all human like us. There’s a healthy balance of staying on top of developers without being hurtful; again let’s make sure we keep that same energy for the publishers that nickel and dime us too.

It’s good that Dying Light 2 is taking its time and that the development team is able to make light of the hateful messages they got. Last year’s Cyberpunk 2077 was a great example of both sides not acting how they should’ve so it seems like the industry as a whole is taking note of it. Are you excited for Dying Light 2? Did you enjoy part 1 / DLC? Let us know your thoughts!

Fortnite Getting The Flash Skin

Fortnite is getting another DC superhero skin for their battle royale game. This new skin is based on the scarlet speedster, The Flash. It looks to take a little bit of inspiration from the CW television series rather than the cinematic portrayal of Ezra Miller even though it’s not completely catering to the television version. More info below courtesy of Epic Games’ blog post:

From the DC Multiverse to the Zero Point and now to the Island, the one and only Scarlet Speedster is bringing a taste of the Speed Force to Fortnite. Starting Saturday, February 13 at 7 PM ET, The Flash Outfit will light up the Item Shop alongside the rest of The Flash Set!

Face-off Against The Mandalorian In New Fortnite Event

Fortnite is continuing to keep fans guessing as to what will come next. This weeks event, Mando’s Bounty lasts until February 9th will see players hunting bounty targets in order to earn credits. Whoever has the most credits becomes the target of the Mandalorian himself (which will be an AI controlled character).

Kevin Hart Cast As Roland In Upcoming Borderlands Movie

Today it was officially revealed that Kevin Hart is in fact apart of the upcoming Borderlands movie but not as the previously speculated Claptrap but as the vault hunter & hero of Pandora, Roland. This has came as a surprise to many as most fans are use to Kevin in comedic roles which doesn’t fit the archetype of Roland’s character.

For those that don’t know, Roland is the leader of the Crimson Raiders and a playable vault hunter in the first Borderlands game. Roland often serves as the voice of reason and as the “straight man” in most comedic situations in the Borderlands games. He appears as one of the few characters that hasn’t lost their sanity. Borderlands, while violent, is a game series that doesn’t hold back with the humor. There’s always a joke being thrown at the player, character dynamics often display humorous conversations and many situations will make the player chuckle.

So it’ll be interesting to see Kevin Hart play a character that is typically the “serious one” despite being in a film about a game that often utilizes humor. I’m excited to see Kevin Hart dive into a different role and here’s to hoping we see a different side of his acting ability. In the recent years, Kevin has been training vigorously and has teased the idea of him being in a action movie. What are your thoughts? Are excited? Let us know!

“I’m thrilled to be working with Kevin [Hart]. Borderlands is a different kind of role for him, and we are excited to thrill audiences with a side of Kevin they’ve never seen before. He’s going to be an amazing Roland.”

– Eli Roth

Resident Evil 8 “MAIDEN” Demo / Resident Evil 7 Classic “Fixed” Camera

Resident Evil 8: Village has received its first demo titled, “Maiden”. This is currently on Playstation 5 with another updated demo coming to all platforms sometime in the spring. This demo is similar to the demo that was released for Resident Evil 7 where little is shown but a lot is teased. As of now we know there are at least 4 different “houses” that are occupying this village in the mountains. We learn that the women who many are speculating as “vampires” have a wine distillery in their castle and have been using human blood to create their unique flavor.

Resident Evil has generally dealt with zombies and viruses. This game looks to be taking a gothic spin on this iconic franchise. However, it’s still not confirmed that “werewolves” and “vampires” will be making their appearance in this game. In the event that we fight enemies who howl in the night or have sharp blood tooth fangs, except that to be some sort of infection or virus rather than a genuine supernatural monster. Resident Evil doesn’t typically go to the supernatural. Nevertheless, their take on the gothic style looks very interesting and many can see the similarities between the classic Resident Evil 4 in terms of a gothic castle overlooking a rural village.

Check out the demo here:

In other Resident Evil news, a fan has made a concept that implements the classic “fixed” camera style of the original games into the recent Resident Evil 7. In this demo, we can actually see the protagonist, Ethan’s, face. It’s worth noting that this game isn’t fully playable and is for viewing purposes only. There’s no combat and it’s only playable for a few sections although there’s a possibility that a fan will complete a fully playable version.

Resident Evil VII Gameplay + New Game Announcement

Capcom’s RE (Resident Evil) Showcase brought a great amount of information for fans of the long running iconic series. This year marks its 25th year and Capcom didn’t hold back with the details. They revealed gameplay / release date for the upcoming Resident evil VII, they revealed more information about the animated movie Resident Evil Infinite Darkness, they revealed a new multiplayer game and finally showed a crossover event between Resident Evil and The Division 2. For more information keep reading!

RESIDENT EVIL VII

Resident Evil VII’s gameplay looks similar to VII but with more abilities at your disposal. There’s a guard / push / counter mechanic that keeps enemies off of you, there’s a lot more heavy weaponry and the aiming looks more precise than it did in the previous entry.

Fans will notice a lot of similarities between this game and Resident Evil 4. With the remake of the 4th game on the horizon, it’s easy to see why. This game is set in the cold mountains of Europe, there’s a village that leads to an ancient castle, there will be a merchant that you can purchase items from and there will villagers that chase you; all components of Resident Evil 4.

This game is available for pre order now, with a digital and physical deluxe edition as well as a Playstation pre order bonus for all editions including the standard. This game will be released for Xbox, Playstation & PC on May 7th 2021.

RESIDENT EVIL INFINITE DARKNESS

Capcom revealed that the upcoming CGI movie will be set a few years after Resident Evil 4, following both Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield. Not much else is known about the specifics but expect to watch this worldwide on Netflix this year!

RESIDENT EVIL RE:VERSE

Capcom revealed their secret project which is a multiplayer death match game that comes free with purchase of Resident Evil VII. You can play as series favorites: Claire, Chris, Jill, Leon, H.U.N.K. as well as the villains such as Nemesis, Jack and even the infected enemies from the series. We’ll wait and see how this one turns out!
