The Cube-Daily News Update: 8/6/16
We’ve got a plethora of stories this Saturday, including a continuation of some No Man’s Sky, Blizzard, and Bethesda news. Here are your essential stories for August 6th 2016.
God of War’s director has answered some fan questions about his game on Twitter:
We might not be seeing God of War’s reboot in action for quite some time, but that doesn’t mean all of the details have been left out of the picture. The game’s director Cory Balrog has gone to answer some questions for the title on Twitter, and elaborated that there will be New Game Plus, common influences, and of course chests. (A common staple of the series) If anything, t’s really refreshing to see that the game is mixing both old and new!
No Man’s Sky will be getting a server reset tomorrow:
In addition to being pushed to the 12th on PC, Hello Games has announced on Twitter that those who have bought the game early will not be keeping their planet and creature games, due to a server reset. This is the only progress being removed however, so if you do have the game early, be sure to name what you need to add right after.
Elder Scrolls Legends has a new open beta:
Fans of Elder Scrolls have been debating whether it’s Legends spinoff is a shameless Hearthstone clone, but they can finally give it a shot as a new open beta is out. Bethesda also revealed that Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android versions are on the way. The beta should include the game’s multiplayer and story sections too, so it’s not light on content in the slightest.
Pokemon Go has been banned in Iran:
Countries in the Middle East have some high censorship standards, and while many thought Pokemon Go would stand in the way of that, it’s still getting removed in Iran after being considered a security threat. You can still probably play through a VPN, but there’s no word on whether that’s illegal, and it might not be worth the risk.
Overwatch now has 15 million players:
Overwatch has attracted mass appeal from practically all regions, but it’s still shocking to hear it’s reached 15 million worldwide. This is due to it’s high popularity in Korea and China, and Blizzard has also let out that 500 million global hours have been played too. With 7 million being announced last month, it’s an understatement to say this game is printing money.
