Crew 2 release date announced

June 29, 2018

Now with Planes and Boats. And still cars one assumes.

I know the rest of you didn't buy into The Crew the way I did but it was an awesome racing game designed for 4-player coop. Although I think the most HoC members we ever had at one time was two.

Maybe we'll do better this time.

Note that I waited for The Crew to hit half price before I bought it and will probably do the same here barring any random coop day.

Trying to steal Ubisoft's Thunder this was technically announced the same day as Division 2. It just took me some time to post it.

From the Activision Announcement:

    The next title in the Call of Duty franchise will be Call of Duty: Black Ops 4! Treyarch is set to revolutionize the top-selling series in Call of Duty history when it launches worldwide on Friday, October 12, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Ubisoft announced something today

Ubisoft Is Making The Division 2

    “It wasn’t an easy decision,” the game’s creative director, Julian Gerighty, said in a livestream today, regarding the decision to make a sequel. “There are so many stories and so many experiences we want to explore within the Division that we really thought a sequel was the best way to investigate these things.”

Say hello to GLaDOS for me!

    Enter the Aperture Science Enrichment Center and experience Bridge Constructor Portal – the unique merging of the classic Portal and Bridge Constructor games.

Make use of the many Portal gadgets, like portals, propulsion gel, repulsion gel, aerial faith plates, cubes, and more to bypass the sentry turrets, acid pools and laser barriers, solve switch puzzles, and make it through the test chambers unscathed. Let Ellen McLain, the original voice of GLaDOS, guide you through the tutorial, and learn all the tips and tricks that make a true Aperture Science employee. The bridge is a lie!
