Little is known about DICE's upcoming fifth installment in their Battlefield franchise; from what sparse news has trickled out over recent years, it is rumored that Battlefield 5 will take place during World War I and that a greater degree of destruction will be present compared to previous titles.

Now, DICE is about ready to lift their radio silence on Battlefield 5, and the developer is keen on pulling out all the stops with a "world premiere event" next Friday, May 6th. Eager fans can tune in to a livestream at 1:00 PM Pacific time on that day, though proper details regarding the broadcast have yet to be specified.

Earlier this week, a leaked trailer showcased some of the single player gameplay in the upcoming Doom reboot being developed by Id Software and Bethesda. Despite being taken down twice within a day or so, many fans were left excited for the shooter, even some of those who had been scorned by its less-than-successful multiplayer beta. The actual single player reveal occurred on Bethesda's Twitch page this past Wednesday, however. The livestream—which featured Martin Stratton and Hugo Martin, the executive producer and creative director of Doom respectively—focused on features that showed the developer's interest in keeping the feel of the original game while still modernizing it for 2016.

After leaving Capcom, Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune and the development team at Comcept began working on a spiritual successor to Mega Man known as Mighty No. 9. It's been over a year since the Kickstarter-funded action-platformer was originally scheduled to release, and we still don't have a concrete release date. Back in January, Mighty No. 9 was delayed for the third time (despite promises that there would be no more delays after the second), this time to a generic "Spring" release window.

Unfortunately, it's looking like Mighty No. 9 may be delayed yet again. Promotional materials for the long-awaited game were spotted at retailer EB Games, and they list a Summer 2016 release window for the game. Comcept has not yet commented on the supposed delay, and they haven't issued any updates on the game's Kickstarter since January.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution released in 2011, reviving the Deus Ex franchise and bringing it to the forefront of many gamers' attention. With multiple ways to accomplish goals, a variety of powers and abilities to employ, and a fascinating story of the first humans augmented with technology, the game was a big hit, and so of course developer Eidos Montreal started work on a sequel. Dubbed Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, this new title is coming out this August, and it looks to build off Revolution in a number of ways. To show all this off and give eager players a taste of what's to come, Eidos has released a new trailer today which reveals the basics of the plot and some of the mechanics the title will employ.

Rock Band 4 was released last year, and while many were happy to start up a band with their friends again, it was much more difficult if those friends were overseas. While previous iterations of Rock Band had online multiplayer, Rock Band 4's release left the online aspect completely out. Earlier this week, Harmonix announced that they would be bringing back "synchronous online multiplayer" later this year. Rock Band 4's online multiplayer will be just like Quickplay mode, except it will be modified to provide players a smooth and streamlined experience.

Microsoft has been making a big effort recently to unify their devices into one gaming ecosystem, blurring the lines between "Xbox" and "PC" with Windows 10 serving as a unifying platform. By opening up cross-play between Xbox One and PC, allowing for streaming between various devices, and bringing Xbox One titles like Quantum Break and Gears of War: Ultimate Edition to PC, they're taking strides to unite the two audiences.

This strategy is having the desired effect, as gaming is becoming more popular on Windows 10. During a recent quarterly financial conference call, Microsoft Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella revealed that bringing Xbox One games to the Windows store has boosted gaming hours on Windows 10 by 50% over the past three months. Given this success, we'll likely see Microsoft take more steps in this direction going forward.

Gameplay for Outlast 2 has finally debuted following the game's announcement last November. A five-minute video has been released that features gameplay from the playable demo at PAX East 2016, showing off a haunting village that the player must explore through the use of a video-camera, a mechanic that fans of the original game will know well. While it includes some similar, fear-inducing tactics as the first game, Outlast 2 revolves around the theme of religion, and it aims to launch in Fall 2016.

Over the last few months, Amazon has been making moves to increase the membership for Amazon Prime, a paid membership service that provides free expedited shipping, discounts on new games, and more. Now, it looks like the online retailer's next move will prevent those who have not subscribed to Prime from purchasing some video games directly from Amazon.

As originally reported by, multiple games (including the PlayStation 4 versions of Grand Theft Auto V and Assassin's Creed Syndicate, the PS4 and Xbox One versions of FIFA 16 and Far Cry Primal, and more) can now only be purchased by those who have a Prime membership in the US and UK; Amazon has commented on the matter, stating that this is a continuation of their "Prime-Exclusive Items" program and that non-Prime members can sign up for a free trial or purchase the items from Amazon Marketplace sellers if they wish to buy them.

There is a certain charm that comes with each entry Spiders Studio adds to their growing line-up of low budget RPGs. It is as if an old friend keeps coming up with new, borderline ridiculous Dungeons & Dragons campaigns where major story elements, such as being a tech-savvy lightning wizard on Mars, are simply explained away with, "It's totally awesome!" Yet you love and enjoy every moment of them. Whether or not you share this endearing notion, the French developer's newest game, The Technomancer, looks to be following in the same footsteps as its predecessors with its newest gameplay trailer.
