Larian Studios are working on crossplay for Baldur's Gate 3. I also discuss the concurrent player count in Starfield, and apparently the Nintendo Switch 2 has been demoed in secret.
During Gamescom 2023, amidst the bustling show floor and fervor of game announcements, something rather unprecedented occurred. The tech gurus at Nintendo orchestrated a clandestine showcase of their upcoming console: the Nintendo Switch 2. This move was exclusively for developers, away from the prying eyes of the general public.
To the everyday attendee, the spotlight seemed to be on games like Pikmin 4 and Super Mario Kart 8. Little did they know about the discreet demonstration taking place. Leaks and rumors have always been a staple in the gaming community, and whispers about the technical prowess of the Nintendo Switch 2 were no exception.
The speculation mill suggests that the console will hit markets in 2024. As a passionate gamer with over 30 years of joystick handling, controllers smashing, and console evaluating, I am personally bursting with excitement. Keep an eye on my Gaming News segment, because once I get wind of more specifics, you'll be the first to know!
By the way, I'm curious: What's your top pick for the current Nintendo Switch? Share your favorites in the comments.
Bethesda, the legendary gaming company, is popping champagne! Why? Their celestial game Starfield has amassed over 1 million concurrent players. That's a formidable number, especially when we take into account players from different platforms – PC, Xbox, and even those who hopped onto the starship via Xbox Game Pass.
Starfield's success was hinted at during its Early Access phase, where rave reviews and player engagement started piling up. The game's intricate storylines, immersive graphics, and innovative gameplay elements have genuinely resonated with gamers worldwide.
Being a seasoned gamer, milestones like these remind me of the tremendous leaps gaming has made over the decades. Have you ventured into the vast expanse of Starfield yet?
The gaming world thrives on connections, and Larian Studios is keen to foster them with their latest initiative for Baldur's Gate 3. An intriguing report from Eurogamer has shed light on the developer's ambitious crossplay project.
The initial phase seeks to bridge PlayStation 5 and PC players, letting them venture into the realms of Baldur's Gate 3 hand-in-hand. However, Larian doesn't want to stop there. Their grand vision encompasses PC, PlayStation, and Xbox players, uniting them under the banner of shared gaming experiences. Imagine the myriad of possibilities and collaborations this can spawn!
For someone like me, who's seen the gaming industry evolve and expand over the last three decades, this feels like a dream come true. How about you? Have you tried rallying your friends for a Baldur's Gate 3 session?
