It’s the start of a new week, and we have a load of news coming out of some brand new game releases. Here are your essential stories for Sunday, August 21st 2016.
Something Diablo is going to be revealed at this year’s Blizzcon:
It’s not uncommon to see Twitter teases, and Blizzard has done exactly that in the case of Diablo’s impending 20th anniversary. When one user asked if the series would be getting any sort of announcement at this year’s Blizzcon, the official Diablo account responded with “the event will be really cool this year.” Hopefully we’re not being misled!
Platinum Games is making a mobile title:
Announced on a Japanese livestream, Plainum Games is developing a mobile RPG titled Project Lost Order, which will be directed by the Final Fantasy XII and Vagrant Story director Yasumi Matsuno. You can check the trailer out below, no word on whether it will get a U.S. release.
Deus Ex Mankind Divided’s Season Pass has been detailed:
Mankind Divided is just a few short days from an official release, but we already know what the game will get post-release, thanks to a GAME leak. There will be two new story missions, two weapon packs, and various game credits for the story and Breach mode. It reportedly costs $30.
Driveclub VR is getting free stages:
It’s hard to talk about Driveclub without mentioning it’s disastrous launch, but goodwill is still be providing to players years after. Now, the game’s ex-director has stated that the VR version will be containing free tracks. There’s no word on how many will be included however.
Titanfall 2 is not doing well pre-orders wise:
The pre-release hype for Titanfall was through the roof, but according to new pre-order stats, Titanfall 2 is doing the exact opposite. It reportedly hasn’t cracked the top 50 even with it’s multiplayer move, meaning each version has less than 19,00 pre-orders. Maybe that’s the reason for the game’s newest technical test.
