Vampyr's patch to "de-emphasize combat" drops next week

Focus Interactive has confirmed Vampyr’s afore-promised patch to “de-emphasise” combat in the vampire action-RPG will release later this week on 26th September 2018.”Story Mode de-emphasizes combat, placing a greater focus on narrative so players can enjoy Dr. Jonathan Reid’s journey with less challenging gameplay,” states an update on Steam. “On the other end of the scale, Hard Mode makes combat much more difficult. Players will receive less experience from killing enemies too, forcing them to rely even more on embracing citizens to grow in power.

Destiny 2 Forsaken players believe they’ve stumbled upon the location where the quest for the Malfeasance hand cannon begins… but cannot yet find a way to trigger the quest line.As reported by Forbes, players believe they’ve located Callum’s Grave, widely thought – thanks to a little datamining – to be the inaugural step of the quest for Malfeasance, an exotic – and extraordinarily elusive – hand cannon. Callum’s grave has been found in the Dreaming City strike, The Corrupted, which wasn’t unlocked until a clan defeated Destiny 2’s latest raid, Last Wish, last week.Read more…

Devil May Cry 5 will allow players to spend real money to upgrade their characters. The news came via a build of the game being shown at Tokyo Game Show, in which orbs could be bought at Divinity Statues in-game to hurry up progression – a system that had previously appeared in Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition, though given the backlash that similar systems have faced it’s still a surprise to see it return.

How well does Call of Duty's tech handle the battle royale challenge?

Is battle royale a good fit for Treyarch’s iteration of the Call of Duty engine? Black Ops 4’s latest beta provides answers. An early demo of the new Blackout mode rolled out last week, revealing that the developer is aiming to deliver a very similar style of game, but targeting a 60fps update in a world where Xbox One has struggled to achieve smooth performance in PUBG. At its core, Blackout follows the same beats of play; up to 100 combatants fly across the map, skydive down, scavenge for weapons and armour, and then duke it out to be the…

Whenever I hear someone talking about the great old days of games, back when the designers would just chuck you right into the middle of it all (“Getting stuck on a puzzle?” I once heard Tim Schafer say, “We used to call that content”), I think of one game that did just this, and very literally. About a third of the way into Tomb Raider 2, Lara Croft goes for a short ride on a submarine. The ride is short because the submarine crashes or explodes or something wretched and annoying like that. Anyway, the cutscene ends ambiguously and then…
