Yep, that’s it, that’s the headline right there. After being delayed twice already and despite going gold, Cyberpunk 2077 will be delayed once again by 21 days, pushing the release date back to December 10.
CD Projekt Red made the announcement just moments ago, and for sure it was a very tough decision for the whole team.
The cause of the delay is the challenge of “shipping the game on current-gen, next-gen, and PC at the same time”, as reads the statement from CDPR executives Adam Badowski and Marcin Iwinski. While normally this wouldn’t be a concern, the work from home setup around the world have really made it tough for everyone to function at 100%.
We’ll be waiting a bit longer for this masterpiece.

Gearbox Software has just revealed new skill trees in Borderlands 3 for four Vault Hunters namely Amara, FL4K, Moze, and Zane in the upcoming Designer’s Cut add-on.
Amara’s new Phaseflare Action Skill summons a giant controllable orb of elemental destruction which helps her plow through those that oppose her. Her Enlightened Force Skill Tree, on the other hand, lets her freeze enemies using Cryo elemental effects which rounds out her toolkit of natural elements. The passive abilities in this tree help her maximize elemental damage and slow enemies down to help Phaseflare chase them down.
FL4K gets new a crowd control Action Skill with the new Gravity Snare. The long-lasting skill periodically tosses nearby in the air which interrupts their attacks then slams them back into the ground. Meanwhile, the passive abilities in the Trapper Skill Tree give FL4K and their pet shield bonuses and increased hit effects.
Moze swaps her pilotable mech Iron Bear for a smaller but autonomous mini-mech called Iron Cub which fights alongside you in the Bear Mother Skill Tree. The majority of the bonuses that apply to Iron Bear also work on Iron Cub including the Hard Point weapon attachments. The Skill Tree also rewards you for setting enemies ablaze which is a good fit for fans of Hard Point weapons.
Lastly, Zane can now equip the MNTIS Shoulder Cannon, thanks to his new Skill Tree. The MNTIS Shoulder Canon is a high-tech railgun with multiple charges that can snipe enemies. This can be paired with the No Way Out augment which is found further down the Skill Tree. The augment makes the MNTIS shoot a grappling hook that yanks directly to you for a bit of close quarter combat.

Borderlands 3 Designer Cut add-on will be available starting November 10 as part of Season Pass 2.
Ok so apparently, some PS4 games like The Last of Us Remastered and God of War, among many others, got some sort of a mystery update over the weekend and while the logs put it as “bug fixes”, this may have been more than just a random coincidence.
Twitter user Anthony Calabrese pointed out that since the update, TLOU Remastered got a huge boost to loading times on the PS4, saying that sections of the game “load in asap”.
While it is quite hard to actually measure this over a Tweet, a YouTube channel called ElAnalistaDeBits uploaded a full video comparing loading times pre and post-patch and holy crap the difference is insane, as starting out the game will take just 13-ish seconds now compared to a previous load time of 1:30. It is quite mind-boggling to know that the PlayStation 4 can handle such an improvement to load times, so you can just guess that playing TLOU Remastered on the PlayStation 5 will literally be a seamless experience.
If by any chance you have not played this masterpiece of a game yet but picking up a PlayStation 5 next month, you’re in luck as you’ll be able to play The Last of Us Remastered along with other titles like God of War, Persona 5, Bloodborne, and much more for free as part of the PlayStation Plus Collection.
If a dose of regular anime waifus aren’t quite enough, how about zombie waifus to sweeten the deal? Sekai Games with developer Mr. Tired Media present the turn-based dungeon-crawler Undead Darlings ~no cure for love~, which is now available on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
Journey with a crew of six half-zombie girls as you crawl through dungeons, beating up twisted creatures that were born from the fall of society, and ultimately deliver the only known cure for what ails your party members to a place where it can be mass-produced! It’s a weird and wild premise, but we’re also talking about zombie girls here.
You can take a look at the overview of the game from the Nintendo site:
Reginald “Reggie” P. Happenstahnce wakes up from an alcohol-related coma (courtesy of his own father, no less) by his childhood friend, Pearl, and is told that society had crumbled due to a virus outbreak that turned most everyone into zombies while he was sleeping. This includes Pearl herself. However, Pearl has managed to hold onto her human conscience, and she relates that she is not the only one in a similar state. As with every half-zombie Reggie will run into, she may be undead, but her heart is still human.
Your role as Reggie is to be the girls’ loot donkey and carry the things they find in dungeons. Since Reggie is a human, the girls will prevent him from getting infected by fighting in the front lines! Go them!
While on this adventure, you will learn more about the undead girls’ lives from before the outbreak, but whose tale you will hear is based on the choices you make during the visual novel scenes. Perhaps one of them will connect with you, open up about their hardships, and maybe even develop romantic feelings… The ultimate result of these interactions will determine whether or not any of these girls trust you enough to take the biggest risk of their undead lives—volunteer to be the first test subject for your father’s cure!
With over 20 floors to explore, six playable characters and nine endings, scratch your dungeon crawling itch as Undead Darlings ~no cure for love~ is now available for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
Enjoying Ghost of Tsushima: Legends? Hate those tethered and attuned enemies with a passion? The game is about to get tougher as the culmination of the Legends storyline, which is the “Tale of Iyo” Raid, will be available on October 30.

As such, no matchmaking will be imposed, and you’ll need to bump up your KI Level to 100 in order to survive.
Along with this, there will be story and survival weekly challenges that will provide max-level gear to help get you dressed up in preparation for the Raid. Be warned, the weekly challenges are set at nightmare difficulty, so your teamwork and skills will be put to the test.

If there’s anything about the previous Assassin’s Creed games, it’s that there is a TON of content to burn through, whether it be in the base game of through DLC’s. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be no different, as Ubisoft has revealed its post-launch and season pass plans for the game, which include 2 expansions via the Season Pass and 4 free DLC’s.
In Spring 2021, the first expansion called “Wrath of the Druids” will take players on a journey to Ireland and unravel the mysteries of an ancient and mysterious druidic cult, tracking and discovering their members.
Scheduled in Summer 2021 will be “The Siege of Paris”, which will give players the chance to relive the most ambitious battle in Viking History with key historical figures of war-torn Frankia. During this key moment in history, players will infiltrate the fortified city of Paris and the River Seine under a prolonged siege, uncover enemy secrets, and form strategic alliances to safeguard their clan’s future..
Of course, if you’ve purchased either the Gold, Ultimate, or Collector’s edition of the game, then you’ll gain access to the Season Pass automatically as it will be included in the package that also includes “The Legend of Beowulf” quest, where players will uncover the monstrous truth behind the legend of Beowulf.
Don’t really care about the Season pass at all? Got you covered, as seasonal content updates spanning three months each will be accessible to all players, with the first event being available in late 2020.
Season 1 will launch in December 2020 with the following content planned:
A new settlement area, allowing players to continue to grow and evolve their settlement.
A traditional Viking Festival: the Yule Festival, for players to experience in their settlement.
A new game mode: the River Raids. Building on Valhalla’s core raiding mechanic the mode will deliver a dynamic, challenging and highly replayable raid experience.
The addition of the Ranks for Jomsviking: in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players can not only create their lieutenant to be part of their raiding crew, but also recruit some from their friends and the community. In Season 1, players will see an update to the Jomsviking feature which will allow their Jomsviking to earn XP and rank up – the higher will be the rank of the lieutenant, the more silver players will earn when recruited by other players.
Finally, as for each season, Season 1 will also come with new player skills and abilities, weapons and gear, and cosmetic items for the settlement, longship, horse and raven.
Season 2 will launch in March 2021 with a new game mode that builds on Valhalla’s core combat experiences, a new Jomsviking update, festivals in the Settlement, new gear and cosmetic items, and more. More information about Season 3 and 4 will be come at a later time.
Following backlash from the community over the addition of unskippable ads during the loading screen of NBA 2K21, 2K games took to social media to announce that action will be taken towards this fiasco.
Citing that the ad placement “impacted our players’ experience in a way we didn’t intend”, 2K has promised to rectify the situation as the ad was not supposed to run during the pre-game introduction.
Parts of the community expressed indifference towards the ad, saying that it was during loading time anyways, while others expressed anger, saying that it was a crummy move since 2K21 is a fully priced game similar to UFC4. Whatever the case may be, the team over at 2K Games have promised to fix this and that feedback is always welcome.
It seems that with the launch of NBA 2K21 MyTEAM season 2, a new feature has dropped along with it but not exactly one that will please the fans of this full priced game.
According to a video from YouTube channel Stevivor, ads now play during the loading times in between matches. One more thing about these ads? They’re unskippable.
On one hand, this is during the loading sequence, so it can be argued that you’ll have to wait anyways for the game to load. On the other hand, this is a full priced game, so these kinds of things are not common practice.
With the coming of the next-gen consoles next month, the hardware will allow for very little loading time, so this could be meaningless unless it were truly unskippable. EA recently pulled this stunt with UFC 4 but removed it soon after due to the massive backlash they received from the fans and we’re expecting the same here.
Our review of NBA 2K21 pointed to it being an incremental upgrade, with the game not introducing enough to merit a full priced purchase. Next-gen versions of NBA 2K21 looks like a more suitable purchase based on what we’ve seen so far, but no verdict on that just yet until the game releases next month.
The PlayStation 8.00 update was launched earlier this week, bringing with it a ton of things like new avatars, 2-step verification, and a more controversial warning that suggested that the console can record voice conversations which can be reported to Sony for moderation. Of course, as expected, there was immediate outrage due to privacy issues and concerns, but Sony has since clarified the feature, which isn’t as bad as people thought it was.
In a post on the PlayStation Blog, VP of Global Consumer Experience Catherine Jensen explained that as part of an initiative to have gamers accurately report harassment or abuse, the roll out for a chat report feature is being introduced. Jensen further clarified that “this feature will not actively monitor or listen in on your conversations – ever – and it’s strictly reserved for reporting online abuse or harassment.”
Jensen continued on to apologize for not communicating the feature and why they were adding it in the first place, which caused the large-scale confusion.
To further explain, players will can include up to a 40 second voice chat clip in their report, with only “the most recent five minutes of a Voice Chat will be available for a player to use for this reporting function.”
This should ideally encourage players who are socializing with the community to be in their best behavior and not to spread toxicity because abuse and harassment of any kind should never be tolerated.
Valhalla Awaits! Ahead of its launch on November 10, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla has gone gold, which only means that there won’t be anymore delays and players can expect the latest in the long-running franchise to come right beside the launch of the next-gen systems.
Based on what we’ve seen so far for Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, it seems like a familiar game in the vein of Origins and Odyssey but Ubisoft have made some substantial changes to make it stand as its own game with its own identity. Fans of the series should definitely be excited next month.
Are you picking up Valhalla when it launches? Will you be getting the next-gen versions instead?
