The Cube-Daily News Update: 10/22/16
On this Saturday, we’ve got some news surrounding old titles, ones upcoming, or those that weren’t as acclaimed. Here are your essential stories for October 22nd 2016.
Infamous: First Light is supporting PS4 Pro:
Sony expressed previous interest in remastering some of their PS4 exclusives for the Pro, and we have now learned that Infamous: First Light will also be getting the treatment. This means that the title will be rendered at 1800P resolution, and then upscaled to 4K. The game originally ran at 1080.
Call of Duty Infinite Warfare is losing the Support system:
Call of Duty has had subtle changes in every iteration, and Infinite Warfare is continuing this by removing support from Scorestreaks, which have been missing since Advanced Warfare. This means it likely won’t appear again, as it’s been missing throughout the 3 year cycle. However, one of the game’s Combat Rigs is getting a similar feature.
Hearthstone is getting teased for the Nintendo Switch:
A new Blizzard tweet is leaving some fans in rapid speculation, after including a picture that seems to parody Nintendo’s NX tease. (Except Mario is replaced with one of Hearthstone’s more titular characters) Blizzard has not offered any other clarification, so expect to hear more at Blizzcon.
The Order still has a future according to Ready At Dawn:
Ready At Dawn seems to be experimenting after an AAA fallout, but that doesn’t mean the studio is declaring their previous franchises dead. In a new Game Informer interview, Creative Director Ru Weerasuriya explained that the IP definitely has a future and a longer storyline, although part of the return still depends on Sony.
Skyrim is getting a monopoly set:
Merchoid has announced that a Skyrim themed Monopoly set is coming in March 2017 and will be $48. It’s now available for pre-order, and will even include locations in the game like Winterhold and Windhelm. Nothing else has been stated so far.
