Well, the first 5 months have kinda gone by QUICK and how… We got some amazing releases this year, like Lost Ark and Dying Light 2… But the year isn’t over and we’re just halfway through! So let’s see what else is in store for us and how excited we SHOULD BE!
Let’s start with the current month! Here, we’ve got Evil Dead: The Game! It will be released across all platforms. And the second most anticipated game we have is Apex Legends Mobile. Of course available only on iOS and Android!
June is full of a nostalgia reload! We got Mario Strikers: Battle League for the Switch and Sonic Origins for all platforms. And a special entry: Cuphead’s DLC!
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 makes it’s way here in July! And Live A Live for Switch.
Mf’ing SAINTS ROW 5! It’s just titled Saints Row, though. Whatever! Releasing August 23.
It’s time for some Warhammer! Yep, this epic game releases in September! How excited are you for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide?
DC fans galore: Beware! It’s another greatly anticipated title – GOTHAM KNIGHTS! Plus it’s action-RPG. How cool! Really stoked for this one.
November and December’22
Not much going on here, except we get Starfield in November and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. II in December! They both seem like lovely titles so that’s a great way to end the year!
What title are you most excited about? 😉 And if you’re still interested in playing the releases before and during May, make sure you check out our main store HERE! <3
Finally, it’s here. You draw your curtains and switch off the lights. It’s perfect. Everything is okay – and you click on Dying Light 2. Released just this week – the sequel to the much awaited Dying Light is here and it truly is breath-taking.
You’re started off with the same track of Harran that played during the first game and given a backstory into how DL2 came into existence. Of course, the GRE is involved again, and a failed experiment caused the rapid spread of the virus throughout the world causing only one city to survive, Villedor. You start as Aiden, a Pilgrim (a wanderer, a survivor and a badass zombie killer). 10 minutes into the game and you meet Spike from the original game and he brings up Crane real quick. The nostalgia hits hard! It is a bit depressing, ngl. The game looks beyond amazing and the music compliments it so well. Overall, this game has very positive reviews and great praise from critics and gamers both. Let’s dive into this review and talk about the pros and cons of this game, and if you should buy it.
Before we talk about the best parts, let’s talk about the cons first. The game was played on medium settings on a rig that had an RTX 2060 GPU, 16 GB DDR4 RAM and an i7-6700K processor. For some reason, the Ray Tracing would cause a drastic drop in FPS so we just decided to play it on medium to avoid any of that.
Performance (Bugs, Glitches, FPS and more)
A game this new is expected to have some performance issues, glitches, bugs and whatnot. Dying Light 2 unfortunately is no stranger to that and has some massive issues with performance mainly, with a few minor bugs and glitches that can be overlooked. The FPS drops drastically and the game is unable to hold a constant rate. Frequent drops like these can be extremely annoying and can affect the overall gameplay. There are also enormous loading times, blacked out screens, laggy combat and audio issues where the characters are talking (as is evident from the subtitles) but there is literally no sound. There are also issues that are somewhat game breaking – you cannot progress through certain parts in the story because of unknown reasons and are just stuck in a loop for hours.
There was a body duplication glitch, and also a glitch where the corpses just disappeared. The funniest glitch we came across was when you vault over an opponent to kick the other – the person we vaulted over started floating in the air. It was hilarious. Techland said that they are working on a new patch that should reportedly fix these problems and hopefully optimize the game further. All of these were encountered on PC, just to be clear. Some of these issues are addressed under the TIPS section of this article and we show you how to get around these (for now) while the patches are being rolled out; you can thank us later. 😉
Combat & Parkour
In the very beginning, you have almost no stamina left and keep falling down. Nights are extremely tough and parkour seems SO SLOW. Of course as you level up it is truly fun and amazing, but in the beginning it is a bit… frustrating. Not just that, but Aiden’s jump feels super weird. As if he’s jumping on marshmallows… it doesn’t seem natural at all and is at times difficult to gauge if he would make certain jumps or not. From a first-person perspective, the grappling part deeper into the game makes you feel like Spider-Man and is pure, limitless fun. The combat is much more difficult, because it feels a bit more realistic with the increased health of the opponents (especially human). It can get a little repetitive, and sometimes boring. Some enhancements and nerfs need to be made in upcoming patches.
The story comes across as lacklustre and a tad bit boring/expected. The GRE’s involved again? Seriously? Everything adds up to an almost anticlimactic build-up that ends up being not so satisfactory. Maybe the DLC will spice things up. The characters are mostly predictable and are not so well written.
That’s all we had for the cons. Here’s some tips in order for you to not rage at the game and finish it with ease!
If you’re having trouble finishing a quest, especially when you’re at the location but nothing happens (as seen in one of the earlier quests titled “Talk to the people of the Bazaar” where you endlessly search for something to happen and nothing happens – just roam around for a bit after you reach the Bazaar or complete a side quest. You should get a call and then boom, you are able to progress.
Multiplayer Co-op problems? Don’t worry. Apparently, you’re not allowed to have more than 300 friends on Steam at the moment for this game, so just remove some friends if you’re above 300 and it should work like a charm. Hopefully this gets addressed soon.
Pressing the “Q” key for survivor sense and it doesn’t work? Just walk around a few metres, press the escape key and try again. It should work. This is one of the most annoying bugs. But since it’s an important one, it will be fixed nonetheless.
Finally, random floating bodies? Audio cracking/no audio at all? Parkour and combat seem sluggish? Just restart the game and all will be good.
This is what we have so far! Time to talk about the GREAT stuff.
It is beautiful. The graphics are outstanding and the game looks amazing, no doubt about it. The voice acting is a bit okay although the traversing makes it so much more bearable. The music is also so damn good. It really feels depressing at times and during certain missions we felt actually sad. A great combo.
This game promises so much playtime that you won’t be bored of it and it has enough replayability to reach about 500 hours. No joke, that’s what Techland said. We ourselves are around 40 hours deep and haven’t made any significant progress in the game (also because we’re completionists haha). It is fun, entertaining and keeps you hooked. Get ready to spend 3-4 hours per session at the very least.
Most players playing this are and will play it for the nostalgia. Although it is not very connected to the first one, it still reminds you of the times you played as Crane. The rooftop jumping, side missions and survivor saving – it does make you nostalgic and give you some happiness.
I think that’s about it for now, yes, there are many things wrong with this game but should you buy it?
Yes. Techland gave support to a game that came out in 2015 and continued it until DL2 came out.
Should you buy it now? Meh, maybe wait for a bit until the bugs are fixed.
Is it fun regardless of everything? YES!!!!
Anyway, make sure you check it out on our website for a GREAT RATE! Go kill some zombies. And don’t forget! Good night and good luck 😉
Well, the second chapter of Fortnite ended with a bang and the event was a total success. The Cube Queen was finally defeated and we are given a glimpse of The Foundation, played by none other than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. With the classic Rock brow and his cavalier attitude, it looks absolutely amazing.
How is Chapter 3 different from Chapter 2? Well, there’s a big gameplay change, with the focus shifting a little bit towards swinging and sliding (Spider-Man reference?) making the gameplay much much faster.
You also earn XP for the Battle Pass in creative mode now, while playing other people’s and players’ creations, which wasn’t the case before. There’s an epic, final “Victory Crown” after you win the game as well. Inclusion of battle camps, where you can heal yourself and your squad + store items every match is also a new feature! And talking about weapons – boy, oh boy! There are brand new AWESOME weapons!
Most of these details were leaked last week and the developers urged the players to not leak the information, but it was unfortunately leaked all over TikTok with memes spanning Dwayne took over and were all the rage last weekend.
Check the trailer out now!
Are you excited to jump in and experience the brand new chapter of Fortnite?! Before you do, please check out our exclusive Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounts on the main site! CLICK HERE to have a peek!
Well, you thought that we’d just promote our own store? (Yeah that’s correct on most occasions but we’re gamers at heart too so we won’t let you guys miss out on this hehe)
Anyway. Steam Sales. THEY RETURN! Gaben has come to steal your money once more, and like clockwork, you will have 80% of your library unplayed. But the games will still be dirt cheap so… WIN WIN?!
Alright – let’s get down to the news then – Valve just confirmed the rest of the Steam Sales dates and boy, oh boy – we’re gonna go broke again. >:(
Steam Halloween Sale – October 28 – November 1, 2021.
Steam Autumn Sale – November 24 – 30, 2021.
Steam Winter Sale – December 22, 2021 – January 5, 2022.
There’s also BIG BIG BIG sales coming on Epic Games, and on EA – so also stay tuned for that! Epic Games have already given away a lot of cool stuff weekly and monthly for the past year in order to become a popular platform; and it’s working. A lot of people are actually shifting to Epic or at least using it as much as Steam! Good for them.
Well, that’s it for this time folks, we’re having a cool crazy Halloween sale on our store as well – make sure you check your emails on D-Day and you’ll definitely find worth your time 😉
Pssst… Might even be better than some prices on Steam 😉
Amidst the mixed reviews that this game received, it is still going strong with its updates and a promise to fix the issues highlighted by the community. It has been a whole year since the game came out and to address that, the studio made a 1-year-anniversary bundle for the game owners with a bunch of freebies! You can grab it before the day ends today!
Crystal Dynamics recently uploaded a new content roadmap that showcases what’s to come in near future so players know what to expect from it.
Unfortunately, they do not specify when these would be rolled out but as you can see, Spidey makes the cut! As seen on Gamerant; Other additions include community missions like Priority Minion Rush, Cargo Runner Synthoid, and Flashback Rewards Cache. Also included in September and the remaining months going forward are costumes inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with one MCU costume for Black Panther already released.
There’s a new hero event that includes Spider-Man and hopefully that will bump the numbers for the current PC players up. It was performing terribly on PC and that might stand to change owing to their latest update.
Now available on all platforms, you can either wait for the updates to come out or simply grab a copy now!
As usual, have a great day and a lovely week! And don’t forget – GamersOutlet.net is your one stop shop for everything videogames and software, at the cheapest possible price! 😉
With the rumors of a brand new Switch model coming soon, and new games on a much improved screen also making the rounds, let’s have a look at what we we’ll get for August ’21 at the moment!
This one is a banger out there, coming to Switch on August 5th… An awesome rogue-like game with a walking and dreaming cycle! Daytime is okay but nighttime is when you go deep inside your subconscious and battling your nightmares!
Enough said, check out the gameplay trailer for it below!
Loved the Witcher? Well, Baldo’s kinda the same, but 100x cuter. This is one of the most anticipated releases on Switch and is an action-adventure RPG with some of the best and fluid animation styles on this platform. Dive into the world of Rodia and discover new lands, solve puzzles and quests and explore the open world map!
NO MORE HEROES III
And finally, the last one on this list is No More Heroes III, a very aesthetic styled hack and slash where you, the player is Travis Touchdown. Get your damn Beam Katana and do some DAMAGE!
How stoked are you guys? We surely are!
Have a look at our Nintendo Switch product page to get some of these for a GREAT deal when they come out! Until then, have a magnificent week, gamers!
Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) dropping today! And at no extra cost either! It’s all inclusive in the Xbox Game Pass… So what is this “extra” service that Microsoft is providing its users?
Well, not too difficult to understand, and definitely not a new concept – Xbox Cloud Gaming is simply Microsoft’s attempt at providing high end game streaming service to anyone with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and a really good high speed internet connection.
Google’s Stadia launched a similar service in 2019, and it was a success – especially due to the ongoing pandemic.
The biggest advantage to this service is that Microsoft is not charging ANYTHING extra for this, and the beta versions are rolling out today, and is available in 22 countries as of now on Android devices. It is also available on an invite-only basis on iPhone, iPad and Windows PCs.
For the full list of games that can be downloaded/streamed, refer to this list :
Yes, you beautiful bastards, Techland finally has good news for us. Things are looking real bright for Dying Light 2 and I’m sure most fans are elated to hear it – just as we here at GamersOutlet.net are.
Techland released a video a couple of days ago titled MARCH 2021 UPDATE, and in it they talk about (well, mainly just read tweets and comments of anxious fans) the game not being released and address rumors of it being “delayed indefinitely” and “cancelled.”
As the video comes to an end, we are met with some real good news – Dying Light is coming out this year, mostly late 2021. We don’t know the exact date since it wasn’t revealed, but we are given a small glimpse of the game again (new gameplay) and the final release date (although not an exact one.)
Amidst rumors of the autocratic upper level management and very very hectic and toxic workplace leading to many devs and important people working on the game walking away, the studio stands strong and admits that they announced the game too early.
Perhaps they were being way too optimistic. But that happens sometimes! Anyway – the good news is that the game is being released and it’s gonna be great. Can’t wait for it honestly!
How excited are you? Let us know in the comments below!!!
As for now, have an amazing weekend and stay safe! And don’t forget to check our website out for the craziest discounts ever! <3
Things haven’t been going too well for CD Projekt Red, with rumors of investors suing them for releasing an unfinished game, to gamers complaining for the insane amount of glitches and bugs on last gen consoles and even on PC, they’ve been hit with a lot of shitstorms lately.
Even after so much, they’ve tried to be consistent and released hotfixes and patches to try and minimize the damage caused. It’s been a rocky road for them but somehow they are surviving. A big blow for them was when they decided to completely take the game off of the Playstation Store. They started issuing refunds to all the buyers who were dissatisfied or had a horrible experience, mostly because everyone had really high expectations from the studio, and the game. Previously worked on titles like the Witcher series, fans were expecting a lot more, and the marketing didn’t cause any less hype. With Keanu Reeves at the forefront and the poster boy for the game, everybody already had voted this as the GOTY in their minds.
Guess they were wrong! To ease into the situation, the studio’s co-founder speaks to us in a heartfelt video explaining what went wrong, and we should expect in near future.
Public apologies are always difficult, and owning up to them even more so. With the amount of hate received by the studio recently, they needed to make things clear from their side, also because a lot of crazy fans were pushing the game devs and designers with death threats and harmful messages.
That is totally uncool and unwarranted. Well, let’s see what the future holds, with the free DLC dropping this year things might change and help people get a different perspective.
Let us know what you think about this and leave your comments below!
While you’re here, make sure you check out our main site!! We’ve got tons of discounts and best prices on all games and softwares! Even on CP2077 😉
Cyberpunk 2077 was released today, December 10th. But it’s been alive for a very long time. 7 years in making. Finally, today we get to see the life of Night City, as V.
It’s somewhere near the end of the 21st century. You’re cybernetically enhanced, you can customize parts of your body and be whoever you want to be, as long as you have the dough. Yet, you’re in a black hole of your own past, dark, helpless and tired of running away from your issues. You’re sitting on a couch, watching some news on a high tech viewing device while drinking a fluorescent liquid that can bring your half human, half cyborg body down to the levels of tipsiness. You are thinking. About life. About death. Should you end it? Or should you reset your brain and live pain and guilt free? You get up and look out of the window, only to see the sentinels beat a guy who once sold you some synthesized mind stabilizers, to his death.
This image gives me chills. A true Cyberpunk era.
Then, why are gamers angry? Why is the game so damn buggy? Well, for starters, it’s Day 0 of launch. We gotta be patient. For now, it’s poorly optimized and they are working on a new patch already. With the crash reports from all the players, they will design a patch that improves performance, stabilizes the issues and removes these funny bugs.
