Minecraft is about to get a whole lot more competitive. Mojang, 4J Studios and Microsoft have teamed up to introduce a special new PvP mini game for Minecraft: Console Edition, and it's called simply Battle.
Mirror's Edge, the cult-classic video game franchise from EA, is set to become a television series from the makers of Big Brother, The Biggest Loser and Hell on Wheels. Endemol Shine Studios acquired the TV rights to Mirror's Edge and is working with EA to transform it into a female-centric action series (much like the game itself). Deadline originally reported the deal and EA confirmed its existence to Engadget.
"We are excited to be working with Endemol Shine Studios to explore a potential Mirror's Edge project for television," an EA spokesperson said.
Indie studio Sloclap has teamed with Devolver Digital on a new melee-based MMO, dubbed Absolver. The game is currently scheduled for release on both consoles and PC some point in 2017.
We are happy to announce that the May Release, 118.5, will be deployed next Tuesday on May 31st, 2016.
This release brings a number of fixes after the deployment of EVE Online: Citadel, as well as new Multi-Use Analyzers, Upwell Consortium executive clothing rewards for those who took part in the event surrounding the construction of the first Astrahus class citadel, and Motigu "Seabeast" SKINs, which will initially form part of our promotional offers, before being released to the New Eden Store at a later date.
You can check out more information about 118.5 and view the full patch notes via EVE Updates.
We are currently finalizing the deployment schedule for 118.5, and will have further information soon, should an extended downtime be required for deployment.
Twitch viewers know the problem: you've seen something amazing on a stream that you're dying to share, but you'd rather not make friends watch the whole stream (or remember the exact time) to relive the moment. What to do? After today, it should only take a few clicks. Twitch is rolling out a Clips feature that creates a shareable video capturing the 25 seconds before you tap the button, and 5 seconds afterward. After that, you get a web link that takes people directly to the broadcaster; if the feed is no longer live, you'll go to the exact moment the clip began in the finished video.
