Gamescom 2019 gets underway in just a few weeks, and we’re starting to learn a bit more about what we will – and won’t – get to see as part of the show. Today, Sega announced that it will have a new triple-A title to show at the convention, and while we don’t have much clue about what it’ll be, we do at least know it won’t be a new Creative Assembly game.

Rocket League currently has a loot box-style random item system, but that’s set to change later this year. Psyonix has announced that the game’s crates will be replaced with something that’ll let you see “the exact items you’re buying in advance.” More details on exactly how the switch will work are coming in the future, but the move comes after years of criticism of loot box mechanics from players and industry pundits.
Google Stadia is a new gaming platform coming into the market in hopes to compete with the likes of Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony. It’s a unique video game platform as Google is aiming to deliver players with a variety of video game titles that can be streamed to devices rather than having particular hardware necessary to run the titles locally. As a result, the announcement came with some information that may have mislead some gamers worldwide leaving Google to clear things up during a Reddit AMA.
E3 2019 wrapped not that long ago and already we’re gearing up for the Gamescom event. This is another big industry event that brings in several developers where they can unveil the latest video games and hardware coming out to the market. However, while some of the big titles were unveiled during E3, there are still a few reveals that are set to take place at Gamescom. One of those particular reveals will be delivered by Sega, though we don’t know just what in particular is in the works.
United States federal government has charged a Pakistani national for bribing employees at AT&T telecommunication company over a period of five years to help unlock more than 2 million phones and plant malware on the company’s network.
Apex Legends has been focused on three-person squads ever since launch, but that’s about to change – temporarily, at least. A proper solo mode will hit alongside the upcoming Iron Crown Collection event on August 13. This appears to be the “fan-requested feature” that EA started teasing in its financial report last week. (Sadly, it’s not my most-requested feature, so Titans will have to wait.)
