Hey everyone, welcome to another edition of the daily gaming news. Here I'll be discussing all the latest goings-on in the gaming industry, from new releases to game announcements and everything in between. So without further ado, let's get started!
Cyberpunk 2077 Not On Game Pass
There was a rumour a couple of days ago that Cyberpunk 2077 will be coming to Xbox Game Pass, but it's been officially rebuked by CD Projekt Red. The PR Director sent out a tweet saying "I just thought I'd chime in to say that there are no Game Pass plans for Cyberpunk 2077." For me personally, I'm still waiting for the next generation PlayStation 5 to come out before I even think about jumping in again. I don't think now would be the time to send out the game everywhere, in my opinion, even after all this time.
Star Citizen Free
And then the next bit of news for today is Star Citizen will be free to play until the 01 Dec 2021. On the official website they said "Strap in for 13 days of vehicular veneration as pilots from around the verse travel to see the newest and most iconic ships and vehicles up close. Each day, different manufacturers take over the halls and nearly everything on display is available to test fly for free from November 19 until December 1, everyone can play Star Citizen for free". There's going to be upwards of 20 vehicles available for you to test fly in Star Citizen. Star Citizen is a game that's been almost in like early access for a really long time and they are not going to fully finally release it until it's ready. But if you've always been curious about the game, could be your chance to jump in if you haven't jumped in already.
Rockstar Sorry For GTA Trilogy
The last bit of news for today is Rockstar have apologized for the state of the Grand Theft Auto The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition. They sent out a note on the official website saying "Hi, everyone. We want to provide an update regarding the unexpected technical issues that came to light as part of the launch of Grand Theft The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition. Firstly, I want to sincerely apologize to everyone who has encountered these issues playing these games..." and the statement goes on. Ultimately, what is going to result in, is the game being patched and fixed with the first patch coming in the next few days and the original trilogy being added back for sale on PC if people want to play the original games. I have been playing GTA 3 - The Definition Edition. So far, I've not really encountered too many problems. I had a couple of hard crashes, but if they're releasing patches to fix it, then I'll just wait and I have other games to play. In the meantime. It seems to be a reoccurring theme. All I would say to developers, to all developers, is please play test the crap out of your games from beginning to end before you release them and then you won't have this backlash and that goes to all developers. Make it a standard, please.
That's all for my roundup of the latest gaming news. What do you think? Are any of these stories big deals in your opinion? Let me know by leaving a comment on the video. And don't forget to check back tomorrow for more exciting gaming news!
