In a recent job posting, Blizzard subtly dropped hints indicating that it’s planning on working on remastered editions of several of its classics such as Diablo and Warcraft. The job listing states:
Classic Games is looking for a renaissance designer to harmonize that which was, with that which will be. Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo await your machinations. If you have the desire to rise to that challenge, we’d love to hear from you.
It’s unclear if Blizzard is simply looking for an extra hand to integrate its classic lineups into newer titles or if in fact they’re planning on full remasters of their classics, but considering they [...]
Rockstar Games and its publisher Take-Two is under fire from massive community backlash after shutting down several 3rd party modding tools for its popular open world action game, GTA V.

Gamers looking to upgrade their rigs after all the eye-watering E3 announcements will be happy to know that Nvidia is including a free copy of Destiny 2 with the purchase of any GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti. The bundle deal extends to laptops equipped with GTX 1080 as well.

A teaser reveals that FarCry 5 will take place in Montana.
The 41 second clip shows an eerily quiet, vast landscape laced with danger. Screams can be heard from the distance as well as gunshots, and dead bodies seem to populate the river. An unconventional way to ring church bells can also be seen.
The live-action teaser shows a variety of climates the player can expect to find themselves in. More details of the game will be revealed on May 26.
The upcoming Call of Duty: WWII will bring the player back to the second great war, breaking the futuristic theme that’s been recurring in the past few Call of Duty Titles.
The reveal trailer replicates the intensely morose atmosphere of Normandy. The player will take on the role of a single soldier and live through his journey in the epic campaign.
The game is available for pre-order now at callofduty.com and will be released on November 3, 2017.
PC is destined for greatness, and thus Destiny 2 will be coming to PC.
In Bungie’s pre-purchase page, a “PC” option is available in the platform selection menu. PC gamers get the full array of editions including the Collectors Edition, which nets you a messenger bag, solar panel USB charger, paracord, and solar blanket on top of the game itself.
Destiny was a massive hit in the console community with its excellent blend of MMO and FPS elements. What new features Destiny 2 will have is still a mystery, but at least now PC gamers can look forward to its release, too.
You can pre-order Destiny 2 at its official site.
The sequel to Bungie and Activision’s massively popular first-person shooter was recently teased on the studio’s official Twitter page along with a teaser trailer.
The teaser trailer, titled “Last Call”, shows Cayde-6 sharing war stories while downing a green drink. In the flashbacks, Destiny’s The Last City gets destroyed while Cayde-6 provides some entertaining commentary of the event. Unfortunately, no actual gameplay was revealed, but it does reveal that a “worldwide reveal trailer” is coming on March 30, presumably with actual gameplay.
Destiny 2 is expected to be released this fall. Hopefully, Destiny will be [...]
