Dauntless Trailer Welcomes Players to The Frontier
Though players are having trouble actually playing the game, Phoenix Labs’ Dauntless has launched into open beta. The free to play Monster Hunter-esque action RPG sees Slayers battling the Behemoths and ensuring humanity’s survival. Check out the introduction trailer below to see what your journey to the Frontier entails.

Dauntless functions much like other hunting games. Venture across the Shattered Isles, fight against Behemoths (perhaps teaming with other players along the way) and bring back materials from the beasts. Better weapons and armour can be crafted to tackle tougher challenges. Thus does the cycle repeat. Dauntless’s Evergame is committed to offering more after the campaign with Dire Behemoths, modifiers and rewards like Exotic gear.

Phoenix Labs is looking to further expand on Dauntless with new enemies, expansions and other features in the near future. Supporter’s Packs are available for those who want to splurge. Check them out here – they range from $35 to $100 in price.

The Sinking City Gets Ready For E3 With New Teaser Trailer
The Sinking City is an upcoming game from Frogwares set in the 1920s. The game will feature an open world and its setting and story are inspired by the works of H.P Lovecraft. Now, a new teaser trailer has been revealed which confirms that more details about the game will be revealed at E3.

In the new teaser trailer, the atmospheric horror is palpable and there certainly seems to be a lot going on with the game’s story. As of now, we don’t know much about it except that players will take on the role of a private investigator who attempts to find the source of some floods in a city, and it’s evident that these floods have a supernatural origin. At the end of the trailer, we see that more information will be revealed at E3, so we’ll just have to wait a while longer since the event is less than a month away.

You can check out the new teaser trailer below. The Sinking City is set to release for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Battlefield 5 Will Feature Two In-Game Currencies
A representative for Electronic Arts has confirmed to Polygon that Battlefield 5 will have two currencies at launch. The first is the usual “grind currency” which can be earned in-game. The second is a premium currency that can be purchased with real money.

DICE’s Battlefield 5 won’t have a Premium Pass, meaning that all future maps and modes will be free to players. While microtransactions are a given in this case, it was then confirmed that there would be no loot boxes. Instead, cosmetics can purchased with real money but it would also be possible to unlock those cosmetics with in-game currency.

It’s possible that certain cosmetic types (like emotes, colour schemes, etc) will be acquired through the in-game currency. Meanwhile, more elaborate skins and cosmetics can be bought with premium currency, with can still be acquired through regular play but at a slower pace. Either way, neither option will have an impact on actual gameplay like Star Wars Battlefront 2’s system.

We’ll learn more about this in the coming weeks/months so stay tuned. Battlefield 5 is on October 19th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Far Cry 5 Vietnam DLC Release Date Revealed
Ubisoft isn’t quite done with Far Cry 5, and has now revealed when players can expect the first expansion to drop for the open world shooter, titled Hours of Darkness. The Vietnam based story expansion drops on June 5th as a part of the season pass or on its own.

The brief teaser trailer released by Ubisoft with the release date suggests that this expansion will see a decidedly darker tone than the series usually has, asking players to survive in the jungles of Vietnam, rescue squad mates and take on the Viet Cong in order to get back home.

The season pass will include the other two announced expansions, Lost on Mars and Dead Living Zombies, which will be released later on and should have a far different feel to the Hours of Darkness expansion.

Moonlighter’s 11 Facts Trailer Highlights Everything You Need to Know
Digital Sun’s Moonlighter has received a new trailer en route to its release next week, outlining the various features that players can look forward to. Obviously being a merchant warrior is tough business but there’s a unique kind of adventure to be had here. Check it out below.

Moonlighter focuses on Will, an aspiring adventurer in Rynoka village who ventures into dungeons to slay enemies and sell their items for cash. Each dungeon is randomly generated upon entering and if felled in the dungeon, Will is tossed out with only a handful of items. There’s a definite roguelite aspect to it but the store and development of Rynoka is the metagame.

Sell items, upgrade the store, hire businesses like a smithy to make new weapons and armour and much more to ultimately venture further into dungeons. The end goal is reaching the fifth dungeon which remains a mystery to all. Moonlighter arrives on May 29th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Battlefield 5 Releases on October 19th, Chaotic Trailer Revealed
To cap off its reveal, DICE announced that Battlefield 5 would be releasing on October 19th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. This came off of an explosive reveal trailer which could either be in-engine and or actual gameplay. Either way, it was crazy, full of explosions and highlighted the large-scale visceral combat that the franchise is known for. Check it out below.

Along with featuring some modest light machine gun gameplay, we also got a look at the various vehicles and destructibility that environments will possess. Though DICE talked about the new Fortifications that players could build, countering the immense destruction taking place, they weren’t seen in the reveal trailer.

Battlefield 5’s multiplayer will be showcased on June 9th at EA Play, which is also the first presser to kick off E3 2018. We’ll get a look at Grand Operations, the larger take on Battlefield 1’s Operations mode and possibly learn more about the closed beta launch.

Battlefield 5 Co-op Confirmed, Grand Operations Announced
DICE is currently unveiling Battlefield 5 (or Battlefield V, if you prefer). On top of confirming that co-operative play would be returning, it was announced that Operations would be returning. However, they’re now called Grand Operations. The twist this time is that players will fight in multiple modes across multiple maps.

Grand Operations are divided into numerous days – you could engage in Conquest Assault and eventually battle it out on Day 4 in a final stand-style mode with limited resources if the stalemate goes on long enough. Other announcements include the return of Majority rule to Conquest, the new Combined Arms co-op mode and much more.

When will Grand Operations be showcased though? Hands-on multiplayer has been confirmed for EA Play on June 9th, which could be around the same time that the game’s closed beta goes live. Battlefield 5 is still slated to release in October for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

VR Market Growth Has Been Below Expectations, Sony Admits
Remember how, a few years ago, VR was supposed to be the ext big thing, and the next frontier in gaming? And yet, here we are in 2018, and the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR have all released, received some notable games, and multiple price drops- and yet, VR is still not much of a thing, maintaining, at best, a niche presence for the enthusiast market.

So, what happened? Speaking at a financial meeting, PlayStation boss John Kodera admitted that PlayStation VR’s relative lack of success so far has come from the fact that the VR market has simply not grown as much as was expected. PlayStation VR, in fact, was identified by Kodera as one of three major challenging areas for PlayStation, alongside the PlayStation Vue television streaming service, and the WayForward initiative to bring Sony games to mobile.

So what does this mean? Well, hopefully it doesn’t mean that Sony will cut the strings and run, like they did with the PlayStation Vita. Hopefully it means they will invest in more compelling content for the device in house to make it more attractive to would be customers.

Everspace Stellar Edition Now Available on PS4
Rogue-lite arcade space sim Everspace has been making the rounds for a while on Xbox One and PC. It’s now available for PlayStation 4 though as Everspace Stellar Edition and costs $39.99. Along with the base game and Encounters DLC, it brings the soundtrack and a dynamic PS4 menu theme. Check out the launch trailer below.

Michael Schade, CEO of Rockfish Games, stated that, “We are incredibly proud of releasing our very first title for PlayStation, and we couldn’t be more excited that space game enthusiasts on PS4 can now join the ranks of over half a million space pilots already exploring the vastness of Everspace on PC and Xbox.

“Now PS4 players can experience the unique blend of roguelike game mechanics, exploration, storytelling, and fast-paced combat all set within a beautiful procedurally-generated fantasy sci-fi environment, too. And on PS4 Pro, they can even enjoy it in 4K or with improved visuals and at a higher framerate in Full HD”.

It’s also possible to pick up the base game for $29.99 and the Encounters DLC for $9.99 separately. Furthermore, Rockfish will be working with Limited Run Games to release Everspace Galactic Edition this Summer. Retailing for $39.99, it will include the Stellar Edition along with The Making of Everspace, a 28 page booklet.

Everspace isn’t your typically space sim title. Exploring space and various sectors, finding different factions to align with and new weapons to equip, the game will return to the beginning if you die. However, you can embark on a new “run” with some long-term upgrades that can be made. Encounters adds new questlines, factory space stations for upgrading mid-run and a new ship along with new devices and consumables.
