Fortnite Ditches Early Access Label, Slows Development Of PvE Mode
Fortnite is finally shedding its early access status, and as a result, development of its original Save the World PvE mode will slow down. [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/04/24/full-fortnite-x-travis-scott-astronomical-concert”] The news arrives after three years of development, during which the game has become quite the phenomenon after it pivoted from its initial horde mode to battle royale. Recent months have even seen it boasting virtual concerts and Star Wars collaborations, something only one of the world’s most popular video games could carry off. In a post on the Epic Games blog, the development team revealed that Save the World’s main story “is complete,” but that it will endure as a “premium experience” instead of being free to play. Fortnite players considered to be “Founders” – those who purchased the game at full price – will have their Founder’s Packs upgraded as a result. Save the World mode won’t be able to support all upcoming Battle Royale cosmetics, but existing player libraries will remain in-tact. [widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=games-that-came-back-from-the-brink-of-disaster&captions=true”] As Save the World winds down, its content will rotate for replayability purposes. A new Ventures mode is coming to the game too, which will feature new season-long excursions in zones with “new and unique modifiers to tackle.” Players can take part in these ventures to progress through the levels, pick up venture-specific rewards and upgrade the items in their personal collection. In other Fortnite news, the game recently hosted a series of Christopher Nolan movie screenings as part of the Movie Nite at Party Royale’s Big Screen event.

PSVR Patent Filed For Advertisements Displayed Within The Headset
A new PlayStation VR patent filed by Sony Interactive Entertainment suggests that the company is working on technology that will allow advertisements to be displayed within the headset. The patent listing from Sony, published on June 25, shows drawings that offering an example of how a virtual reality advertising model may look in practice. It appears that the advertisements will show up in the periphery parts of your vision, in the top corners of the display or as a banner in the top middle of the screen. A technical drawing from the Sony patent. According to the text of the patent, the way advertisements will be displayed depends on the position of the user’s head within the head-mounted display and their line of sight. The patent describes the advertisements as “additional content” for “promoting recognition of a given thing or service.” One example used in the text is of the user watching a concert with a set of performers appearing at the same time. The technology claims to be able to “detect on which performer the user is focusing his or her attention and then change the advertisement in accordance with the performer of interest.” [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/04/23/the-10-best-psvr-games”] It should be noted that patents are no guarantee of end results, just that the company in question is researching and developing such technologies. As such, we can’t say if Sony is definitely bringing advertising ‘pop-ups’ to PSVR. It is certainly working on the concept, though. In other weird patent news, here’s another bit of Sony technology discovered in April which suggests that in the future we might get fuzzy robotic gaming companions that react to our emotions.

A number of shows have started to re-examine old episodes in light of recent discussions about racism, with both The Office and Community among those that have removed or edited episodes where blackface was used for comedy. Three episodes of Scrubs that feature blackface have been removed from rotation on streaming services, at the request of creator Bill Lawrence.In a new episode of Fake Doctors, Real Friends, a Scrubs rewatch podcast featuring stars Donald Faison and Zach Braff, the two actors invited Lawrence and fellow actor Sarah Chalke (who also appeared in blackface) to discuss the episodes and the decision to remove them.Series creator Bill Lawrence started the show by taking full responsibility for the episodes. “I did see some things directed at Donald and Zach and Sarah,” he explained. “And everybody should know that the reason the word showrunner exists in television is that you’re the gatekeeper, and anything that get allowed on a show you have to ultimately take responsibility for.”Continue Reading at GameSpot
