Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's new battle royale mode, Blackout, will feature 80 players per match during the beta, Treyarch told Game Informer after months of refusing to say. That’s 20 people less than PUBG and Fortnite, though the studio says the number could go higher for the full game later on.
Dedicated players of games like Monster Hunter: World might feel burned out after spending so much time in the game, while players curious about the genre might be intimidated by World’s complicated gameplay. Dauntless is an upcoming free-to-play monster hunting game that looks to help both types of players scratch…
Months after it first hit Steam Early Access I still enjoy dropping into Slay the Spire to see what cards I’m dealt in its procedurally generated dungeon runs. With the addition of its newest character, The Defect, I can see myself returning a lot more often.
Metal Gear Survive, the bizarre zombie horde survival game that really has nothing to do with Metal Gear, kicked off an open beta yesterday. It’s surprisingly fun to play but lacks the heart and quirkiness that drew people to the series to begin with.
Due out January 26, Dragon Ball FighterZ had its open beta this weekend. Unfortunately, network errors and disconnects have plagued much of the second half of it leading publisher Bandai Namco to discuss extending it beyond Sunday.
The studio behind The Witcher series announced its spin-off card game Gwent back at E3 2016. Over a year later the game still isn’t officially out yet, though CD Projekt Red clams it will launch before the end of 2017. During that time it’s grown into something special, so I’m here to say, if you still had any…
The Monster Hunter World beta launches on December 9, giving players a little pre-season hunting before the game’s January 26 release. PlayStation 4 owners will be able to dress up as Horizon: Zero Dawn’s Aloy, complete with robot cat thing. Excellent.
The Crew 2 is coming to you via land, sea and air on March 16, 2018 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Ubisoft revealed the released date via this speedy trailer, along with a link for players to sign up for future beta access. Here is that link. Vroom.
Wildlands players’ long wait for PvP is almost over: This morning, Ubisoft announced that an open beta for Ghost Recon: Wildlands upcoming tactical PvP mode, called Ghost War, will start this summer
If there’s a general consensus on the Destiny 2 beta, it’s this: Player vs. Player (PvP) makes you feel great; Player vs. Environment (PvE) makes you feel underpowered. Bungie is hearing all of those complaints. The studio says to expect changes when the game launches for real in September.
It may not surprise you to hear that Kirk and I have THOUGHTS on the Destiny 2 beta, which is leaving us cautiously optimistic for the full game. Today on Kotaku Splitscreen, let’s discuss.
Destiny 2, a video game that just got un-delayed, will hit PC on October 24, developer Bungie said today. The PS4 and Xbox One versions, meanwhile, will arrive two days earlier than expected, on September 6.
Arms is hard to pin down, both literally and figuratively. While this weekend’s global testfires offered a good introduction to the house of whimsical party combat Nintendo is trying to build, a quick stroll around inside left me wondering, Peggy Lee-style, if that’s all there is.
This is what it looks like when the Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta launches you across a ravine into a pond. It sounds like the game still has some kinks to work out, but ridiculous rag doll physics are half the fun of any open world game. The beta is available for the rest of the weekend.
Sony is now accepting signups for the PlayStation 4 system software 4.5 beta. PS4 owners interested in getting a sneak peek at what’s coming in the next big revision can sign up between now and the beta’s early February launch.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare hasn’t particularly had my interest but after playing a weekend of its multiplayer, I’m impressed. Running around as a machine gun armed robo-soldier was a damn good time.
Nioh is an upcoming Playstation 4 exclusive that blends aspects of Dark Souls, Onimusha, and even a little Genji: Days of the Blade to create a fast paced hack and slash game. The game is currently hosting an open beta. A perfect chance for some samurai action!
It’s a tradition as old as... well, probably a few years, anyway. A game’s beta drops, and PC players crack it open in hopes of suckling out sweet morsels of information. Respawn’s seen it happen, and they’ve decided it’s just not worth the risk with Titanfall 2.
To be fair, it’s a pretty big twist. While The Elder Scrolls Legends beta has a whole lot of Hearthstone going on, it’s going on in two lanes at once, which is actually pretty cool.
