Elden Ring has been delayed until 25 Feb 2022, Elden Ring will have a closed network test between 12-14 Nov 2021, a new Splinter Cell game is allgedly in the works, and Dying Light 2 will have cross play enabled.

Dying Light 2 Cross Play Enabled

One of the most highly anticipated features of the upcoming game Dying Light 2 is the inclusion of cross play. This means that players on different platforms, such as PlayStation and Xbox, will be able to play together. This exciting news was confirmed by Pawel Rohleder, the Chief Technology Officer of Techland, the developer of the game.

But the cross play feature doesn't stop there. Dying Light 2 will also be cross-generation, which means players on older consoles like PlayStation 4 will be able to team up with players on newer consoles like Xbox Series X. This opens up even more possibilities for cooperative play, as players will be able to connect and communicate across platforms.

Cooperative gameplay is a major highlight of games like Dying Light. The ability to join friends in the game and explore its vast world together adds a whole new level of enjoyment. Whether it's taking down hordes of zombies or completing challenging missions, playing with friends enhances the experience. Personally, I have had a great time playing Far Cry 6 in co-op mode, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun multiplayer experience.

New Splinter Cell Game

In other gaming news, rumors are circulating that Ubisoft has finally given the green light for the development of a new mainline Splinter Cell game. This news has excited fans of the series who have been eagerly waiting for any information about the future of the franchise.

Splinter Cell is a critically acclaimed stealth-action series that follows the adventures of Sam Fisher, a highly skilled covert operative. The last mainline entry in the series, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, was released in 2013, leaving fans craving more stealthy gameplay and intriguing narratives.

While this news is currently just a rumor, it has generated a lot of excitement and anticipation among fans. They are eager to see if Ubisoft will unveil more details about the game in the near future. A new Splinter Cell game would undoubtedly be a welcome addition to the stealth genre and a great way to bring back the beloved franchise.

Elden Ring Delayed

Another highly anticipated game, Elden Ring, has unfortunately been delayed. Developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment, Elden Ring is an action role-playing game created in collaboration with renowned author George R.R. Martin.

The delay pushes the game's release date by roughly a month, disappointing eager fans who have been eagerly awaiting its arrival. However, to compensate for the delay, the developers have announced a closed network test, which will take place from November 12 to November 14.

Players have the opportunity to sign up for the network test through the official Elden Ring website. The sign-up period ends on November 1, and participants will be randomly selected. This network test is crucial in ensuring that the game's online features, such as co-op gameplay and player invasions, function smoothly. Testing the online elements will help the developers identify and address any issues before the game's official launch.

As a fan of FromSoftware's previous titles, I have already signed up for the network test in hopes of experiencing the game's online features firsthand. The option to play alongside a friend in co-op mode or challenge others in PvP battles adds an extra layer of excitement and engagement to the already highly anticipated Elden Ring.

In conclusion, the inclusion of cross play in Dying Light 2 is a welcome addition that will enhance the cooperative gameplay experience for players on different platforms. The rumors of a new mainline Splinter Cell game have generated excitement among fans, who are eagerly waiting for more information. Meanwhile, the delay of Elden Ring may be disappointing for some, but the opportunity to participate in the closed network test gives players a chance to experience the game's online features before its official release.
