Fallout 76: Wastelanders was announced during Bethesda’s E3 presentation, and will finally bring NPCs to the West Virginian wasteland. In an interview with PCGamesN, the game’s project lead Jeff Gardiner, those new characters will be far more than just set-dressing.

SungWon Cho – perhaps better known as YouTube’s ProZD – will be in Borderlands 3 as the voice of FL4K, the game’s playable Beastmaster. The news was announced on the E3 Coliseum stage today along, and ProZD confirmed it shortly afterward. It’s hardly his first videogame role, but it is certainly the highest profile casting yet.
We already know that Dying Light 2 will concertedly lean into offering player choice, but the extent to which it will alter the environment hasn’t been entirely clear until now. We’ve seen environmental alterations based on faction control, and the way new areas might be accessed by committing to a certain path – repairing a draw brige to gain access to a biofuel refinery, for example. But according to lead designer Tymon Smektala, you’ll likely miss around half the game on your first playthrough.
While the presence of vehicles in Dying Light 2 was confirmed at last year’s E3, this year we got our first glimpse of one. Rather than a jury rigged buggy à la The Following, it’s a yellow van – akin to a Ford Transit – with a few anti-zombie modifications. The vehicle in question belongs to the renegades who use it to get to a meeting intended to broker peace.
Bungie is “absolutely” interested in bringing cross-play to Destiny 2 in the future. In a tweet earlier today, Destiny general manager Mark Noseworthy confirmed that the feature is a possibility, but it may still be a long way off.
There seven different regions in Dying Light’s The City setting, and each will feature a unique style of parkour. While the moveset you build as you progress through the game won’t change region to region, the challenge you face will vary a great deal.
Cyberpunk 2077 has been confirmed with real-time ray tracing support at launch. Powered by Nvidia’s RTX 20-series graphics cards, the futuristic RPG’s stunning neon world will utilise the Turing architecture’s dedicated RT and Tensor Cores to deliver real-time accurate, more realistic lighting, joining other major upcoming titles such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Wolfenstein Youngblood, and Watchdogs Legion in the RTX club.
It’s Patch Tuesday week!
Adobe has just released the latest June 2019 software updates to address a total 11 security vulnerabilities in its three widely-used products Adobe ColdFusion, Flash Player, and Adobe Campaign.
Bungie reportedly want to focus on Destiny 2 rather than pouring resources into a potential sequel. According to Kotaku reporter Jason Schreier, game director Luke Smith and Destiny general manager Mark Noseworthy “want to stick to Destiny 2 for the forseeable future.”
Trials of Mana is a full remake that will bring the action-RPG Seiken Densetsu 3 to English-speaking audiences after years of waiting for an official release. The game was announced at today’s Nintendo Direct, but it’s not just coming to console – you’ll also be able to play on PC via Steam.
