With rampant rumors and speculation of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds finally arriving to the PlayStation 4, the apparent response from Microsoft, possibly a coincidence, is making PUBG free on Xbox One for a limited time. Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 will also be free-to-play at the same time, leading up to the X018 event this weekend. Some Xbox One users should be able to download the games starting today, although the officially announced period is from November 8 to 11. I myself am able to access PUBG page on the Xbox Marketplace website, with the game installing on my console at the time of this writing. Microsoft has promised some PUBG-related news for X018, but with the game only being free the weekend of the event, a possible, permanent free-to-play announcement to gain excitement for their version of the popular battle royale game seems unlikely. At the very least, the team behind PUBG is still adding bold new content like, uh, skins based on the Suicide Squad movie … [Read more...] about PUBG and PES 2019 Are Getting a Free Weekend on Xbox One
This time of year is perfect for turning off the lights and putting on a scary game. For many folks, P.T., the “playable teaser” for a since-canned Silent Hills installment, more than fits the bill on Halloween night. Unfortunately, a report is circulating that claims a new patch is locking the P.T. application and keeping players from opening the application. Reddit user PopulusTrichocapra first reported on the issue on r/SilentHill, leaving a screenshot as proof of their claims. The screen grab indeed shows that the user’s P.T. application had last been updated 10/22 to version 1.01. Beneath the thumbnail is the icon indicating that an application is locked and unplayable. What’s interesting is that other users aren’t experiencing the issue and are having trouble finding version 1.01.As multiple comments state in the Reddit thread, version 1.00 appears to be the latest update. Game Rant had no issue booting up the game and did not receive a prompt to … [Read more...] about Silent Hills PT Demo Unplayable After Secret Patch?
Folks on the Internet began freaking out this afternoon when word began quickly spreading that Konami’s P.T., the demo for the now-canceled Silent Hills, was being patched with a new 1.01 update that would officially lock out those who still own the game. Before you know it, these stories made their way to the biggest platforms on the Internet–examples from Reddit and Twitter— and began spreading the message that P.T. was finally dead, even for those that had harbored the game away on their hard drives before its removal from the PlayStation Store in 2015. With how much of a punching bag Konami has become in recent years, it was easy for many to jump to the conclusion that this story was 100% true, even without verifying it for themselves. And that’s the problem with this story as of now: it very well might not be true. What’s my proof? Well, I’m looking at P.T. right now on my TV in front of me. Yes, if there is a … [Read more...] about Is This P.T. Disabling Update a Cause for Concern or a Halloween Hoax?
Starting next Tuesday, Metal Gear Survive players can get some more out of the title with a new horror-themed batch of unlockables coming to the game. The update most notably includes the Pyramid Head accessory, which can be worn to relive those Silent Hill glory days. The update doesn’t stop there, however, as Konami is also bringing the main Silent Hill theme, via in-game cassette tape, which will pair perfectly with the Pyramid Head costume. On top of that, a few Castlevania tracks are also arriving including Symphony of the Night‘s ‘The Tragic Prince’ along with Rondo of Blood‘s ‘Divine Bloodlines’ and ‘Beginning’. Players can grab these items up until November 6th.
