Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will let you play as Vegeta, Gohan and Piccolo

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is the story of Son Goku however, it doesn’t mean that we’ll only get to play as the titular character.

According to V-Jump, a Japanese Manga Magazine we will get to not only play as Son Goku but also his first son, Gohan, his rival Vegeta and his other rival and child’s step-father, Piccolo.

The story of Gohan’s training under Piccolo will be expanded upon and we’ll get a much closer look at how their relationship grew, as well as how he shaped Gohan into the Warrior that we see by the end of Z.

We hope that since they’re expanding on this, we also get to see the first time Vegeta becomes a Super Saiyan and Goku turning Super Saiyan 3 in the Other World.

 

Tien, Yamcha, and Chiatozu are confirmed to be supporting characters and will join your party to help you during your battles. Tien and Yamcha have found a new level of respect as fighters thanks to Dragonball FighterZ and it would’ve been cool to perform some of their moves in the gang like the Shin-Kikoho or Wolf Fang Fist.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is set to release in 2020 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

Marvel’s Avengers Gameplay Demo: Describing the Footage which Releases between 26th and 30th August

The Marvel’s Avengers game that was shown at E3 2019 had its first gameplay reveal today at San Diego Comic Con. This gameplay demo showcased the prologue of the game.

UPDATE: The Footage from the SDCC Panel got Leaked and can be watched below

According to Creative Director Shaun Escayg, this gameplay demo will be released to the public a week after Gamescom 2019. Gamescom this year takes place on 20-24th August so we can expect this gameplay to come between 26-30th August.

This new gameplay demo that was showcased starts during A-Day and features Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow, and Thor. After Golden Gate bridge gets attacked Iron Man Thir fly in. Thor uses the Mjolnir to attack enemies on the ground and in air. He also uses it to pin enemies against walls. Then Iron Man shows up and flies around while using his tech to fight against enemies. Captain America investigates the helicarrier and uses his shield to attack enemies as well as defend himself from attacks.

Banner, on the other hand, jumps out of the Quinjet and transforms into Hulk as he lands. He can literally use other enemies as weapons by picking them up. and it’s so freaking cool. He breaks and throws tanks around while also saving a vehicle from falling. Meanwhile, Black Widow takes on Task Master and fights him by using a cloaking device.

 

The demo ends with the helicarrier crashing, Captain America dying and the world not trusting the Avengers anymore as they disband and live in guilt.

All the heroes have special abilities called “Heroic” abilities that they use in the demo. These are unique to each character. Captain America’s Heroic bounces the shield off of multiple enemies and slams it to the ground, Tony Stark’s is a Unibeam Blast, Thor’s is a Hammer Wind Blast, Black Widows is her cloaker and as for Hulk, we ‘re not too sure.

You will also be able to customize your favourite heroes to wear their iconic outfits to make them look like YOUR HEROES. The game’s E3 trailer was a bit shaky so we hope this new gameplay demo trailer can help generate some hype for this game.

Limbo is Free on Epic Games Store this week; Two Games Next Week

Epic Games Store’s free games keep on coming as this week there’s another free game. Limbo is the game for this week and after that, there will be two free games.

Limbo is a creepy side-scroller where you’re trying to find your sister while trying to dodge traps, solve puzzles and just stay alive. The game is available for free now and will be until 25th July.

After Limbo, Epic Games will be giving out two free games. This War of Mine and Moonlighter. The reason for this is because This War of Mine is rated M which means that it will be inaccessible to quite a few people because of Epic’s Parental Controls. So that nobody misses out, Epic is giving out Moonlighter as well.

In This War Of Mine you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city; struggling with lack of food, medicine and constant danger from snipers and hostile scavengers. The game provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle.

Moonlighter is an Action RPG with rogue-lite elements following the everyday routines of Will, an adventurous shopkeeper that dreams of becoming a hero.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands Update Adds 8 Player Battle Royale

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands is about to get its final major content update. This new update comes with a brand new game mode called “Mercenaries”.

Mercenaries is an eight-player free-for-all PvPvE gameplay experience. Your objective is to call for rescue, locate and reach the extraction point, and be the first to board the chopper.

The first phase is Recon. In this phase, you need to find weapons, gear and items but more importantly, radio transmitters. To find these transmitters, you will need to get Intel markers which will help you get an advantage by giving you information on any of the three things listed below.

[GRW] [News] [July 17th] Screenshot 1

• The position of other players for a limited amount of time

• The position of rare items like gear and weapons

• The position of a vehicle

Once you the intel marker, you won’t be able to use it again and if you don’t use it, your opponent will be able to. You won’t just be fighting other player but also AI enemies so be careful. After activating three transmitters, you’ll get the location of the extraction zone and move onto Phase 2.

Phase 2 is Deployment where you get to the chopper. Once the helicopter lands, all the players will know its location and then begins Phase 3.

Phase 3 is Extraction. For extraction to take place you need to fill the extraction gauge by staying within a specific area near the helicopter. You also cannot extract if there’s an enemy in the extraction area so you will either have to kill them or somehow get them out of the area.

This is a good change to the battle royal formula and a good send off to such a popular game that has a lot of content updates since release.

The Nintendo Switch Gets a Hardware Update, Better Battery Life

The Nintendo Switch is getting an under the hood upgrade that helps it get better battery life for the same price and it’s coming very soon.

The updated Nintendo Switch features the new Mariko SoC which is also present in the Nintendo Switch Lite. This upgrade helps vastly improve battery life over the older version.

As reported by Nintendo themselves, the upgraded Switch has a battery life 4.5-9 hours as compared to the older 2.5-6.5 hours. For Breath of the Wild, on the old model, it would last for about 3 hours while the new model will last for a whopping 5.5 hours. This is almost as much as the normal battery life of the older model.

While this isn’t the “Pro” model that’s been rumoured for a while now, it’s still a great upgrade to the Switch that too with no changes to the price. This new  HAC-0019(-01) model will hit the shelves in August.

FIFA 20 won’t have Juventus; Renamed to Piemonte Calcio

Juventus FC has announced that they’ve struck a long term, exclusive partnership deal with PES and Konami for the usage of the Juventus FC intellectual property.


“The new and exciting partnership with Konami will see the eFootball PES series have exclusive use of Juventus intellectual property within console football video games, including the team name, the crest, and official kits.”

This partnership means that for the first time in FIFA’s history they won’t have the license to Juventus and have them in their game in an official capacity. The club and its players will still be available in the game.

Piemonte Calcio is the name chosen by EA to replace Juventus and they’ve also developed a new kit and badge for the club. The players will still be in the game and will retain their likeness.

This is another step that Konami seems to be taking to somehow rebrand the image of PES especially after they changed the name of the game to eFootball PES. This isn’t the first time they’ve had an exclusive deal like this.

They’ve also had such deals with Barcelona in the past but only for their stadium, Camp Nou. Similarly this year, Allianz Arena which is home to Bayern Munich is also exclusive to PES 2020. PES still seems to be playing catch-up with FIFA and it’ll be interesting to see if and how this change affects sales of both the games.

PUBG PC Season 4 Gets an Interesting Story Trailer

PUBG PC’s Season 4 is officially set to launch on 24th July and to hype it up, PUBG has released a video that showcases some of the changes to the map in a very story-heavy way.

The trailer shows us a young man whose homeland seems to get invaded by outside forces. After its all done, he’s the lone survivor. Turns out, the island he’s on is Erangel and he’s the guy behind the whole Battlegrounds.

From what we’ve gathered he seems to be doing this to find people who can rise above the occasion and survive, just like he did as a child. This is the first time we’ve seen something so heavy on story in PUBG.

Earlier last month, we learned that a singleplayer story game is being made in the PUBG universe and this trailer might help build the lore of the world. It’s very interesting because we haven’t seen anything like in the past.
