It looks like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will run an Open Beta ahead of its release on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC. The information comes way of dataminers, and unfortunately, none of it divulges a date, but the current rumors suggest the initial beta will go down sometime in September, which is when Modern Warfare ran its first beta as well. For now though, it looks like this “Open Beta” will be locked behind pre-ordering the game, again, following in the footsteps of Modern Warfare.
PS5 may be able to identify players via the power of the DualSense controller, or at least that’s what a new Sony patent possibly suggests. Back in February, Sony Interactive Entertainment filed a patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, but it’s only recently that the patent was published. As for the patent, it’s full of technical jargon, but it reveals that Sony is working on some new identification technology.
Fans were hyped to see characters like Batgirl, Red Hood, Robin, and Nightwing as playable in Gotham Knights, and we even saw them get some different costumes throughout the new footage. These characters all have several fan-favorite iterations and costumes, and while the Robin costume is cool, fans got really excited when his Red Robin suit was spotted briefly in the footage, and it wasn’t just in a display case in the background. This time he was actually wearing it as he was fighting, meaning it is probably either a skin in the game or his costume before assuming the role of Robin after Batman’s death.
Last week I got a bunch of great Ghost of Tsushima screenshots. Or so I thought. This week I got more photos emailed to me than ever before. Nearly 60 emails containing multiple screenshots and all but a few of them were Tsushima images. So this week on Snapshots, even more photos from Ghost of Tsushima, plus some…
September is closing in, which means that any day now Sony will reveal the free PS4 games PlayStation Plus subscribers will get for the first month of fall. And after August’s great offering — Fall Guys and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered — Sony has its work cut out if it wants to raise the bar again. Yet, there are quite a few big games releasing next month, including Marvel’s Avengers, which Sony has partnered with for exclusive content, so perhaps it would be shrewd to offer a more tame lineup of games in order not to distract players.
In a flash, we just went from knowing very little about the new Flash movie to knowing…a little bit more.
Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath has released a surprise and special Joker event to celebrate DC FanDome. Heading into DC FanDome, which is still ongoing at the moment of writing, many Mortal Kombat fans expected the game show to up with either the reveal of a new DC skins pack or a DC DLC character. For now, this hasn’t happened, and it doesn’t look like this is going to change. That said, NetherRealm Studios isn’t ignoring the event entirely.
