The latest revelation comes on the heels of the confirmation that the company is seeing its largest engine overhaul yet, and it looks like Starfield will be seeing the fruits of many changes in the years ahead. 

The confirmation of the overhauled animation system comes by way of ResetEra after one LinkedIn user spotted a post by Bethesda developer Eric Braun. Braun, who is an animator for the studio, is a Senior Programmer and on the professional network platform, he boasted that he “rewrote the animation system for Starfrield from scratch.” 

It looks like this portion of his online post on LinkedIn has since been removed, but the internet … Read the rest

Recent changes to how parties work on PS4 have certainly not been popular.

Sony has acknowledged the response to one particular change made to PS4 recently. With the release of firmware update 8.00 – likely to be the last major update for seven-year-old console, Sony changed the structure of parties.

Previously, anyone with a PlayStation Plus subscription could start a party, and invite others to join them in-game as well as obviously in voice chat. Invites could be sent out to anyone, friends and others you meet online, and everyone went their separate ways once the party had been disbanded.

With firmware 8.00, Sony made it to so PS4 parties are tied to message groups. This isn’t so much a problem if you only really have a couple of friend groups you chat and play with, but it’s needlessly complicated for those who just want to create a party with … Read the rest

Back when Genshin Impact was first announced last year, this lush open-world adventure bore some key similarities to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Now, over a year on, Genshin Impact still hasn’t shaken those comparisons, but since the release of 1.0 last week it’s clear it’s so much more than a free-to-play clone of Nintendo’s finest. That’s evident from the numbers alone: Genshin Impact is now the “biggest global launch of a Chinese game ever”, and is currently on track to gross more than $100 Million in its first month alone.

Developer MiHoYo is no stranger to technically impressive free-to-play mobile titles, with a decent pedigree with titles like Honkai Impact 3rd, another action-focused game with gorgeous graphics, locked to mobile devices. Of course, how a company is able to put out high-budget games for free is that they rely on you spending money on in-game currency to get a … Read the rest

I haven’t exactly been subtle in my undying love for the Dragon Age franchise and since it’ll be quite a bit of time before we get more Dragon Age 4 news, I have to get my fix where I can. So when a friend of mine shared this incredible Dragon Age Inquisition recreation of Skyhold in The Sims 4? I just had to share. 

Redditor user r/StarshinePrince took to the forums to share their creation and I’ll be honest; I was shocked. When I saw the title of the post of being a recreation, I expected it to be one frame of a building that looked similar to that of Skyhold. What I wasn’t expecting was a detailed recreation, even going room to room.
