Cyberpunk 2077 private E3 demo will go public during PAX West

Cyberpunk 2077 private E3 demo will go public during PAX West

At this year's E3, CD Projekt Red showed a behind closed doors demo featuring new gameplay for Cyberpunk 2077.

Fans at the show and those watching from home were treated to an impressive new trailer but weren't lucky enough to see the new gameplay.

Thankfully, we won't have to wait too long as a recent string of tweets confirmed that the E3 demo would be made public during PAX West, which takes place from August 29 to September 2.

The news was confirmed by CDPR's global community manager when responding to a tweet stating that the demo won't be made public until after Gamescom.

This marketing rollout mirrors what the developer did last year and allows for them to get much more screen time out of a single demo. These demos typically take a lot of extra work internally, so CDPR is playing it smart by making sure the majority of the development team is free to get the game ready for its newly announced release date of April 16 next year.

Report: New Nintendo Switch models in production

Rumours of a new updated Nintendo Switch have been making the rounds for several months now, and it looks like we'll see them this year.

According to a new report via The Wall Street Journal, Nintendo has moved manufacturing from China to Southeast Asia in an effort to avoid proposed United States trade tariffs on tech made in China. If the tariffs do go through,m companies could see themselves forking out a whopping 25 percent tax on any electronics made in China.

Making the second FFVII game will be "more efficient"

Making the second FFVII game will be "more efficient"

Final Fantasy VII Remake may have taken five years from its announcement to release, but Square Enix is saying that won't be the case for subsequent games in the series.

In a series of tweets, producer Yoshinori Kitase noted that "due to the work already done on the first game we anticipate development of the second game to be more efficient."

var sas = sas || {}; sas.cmd = sas.cmd || []; sas.cmd.push( function () { sas.call( { siteId: 234595, pageId: 932921, formatId: 67398, tagId: "sas_67398" }, { networkId: 3073, domain: "//sgp-secure.smartadserver.com" /*, onNoad: function() {} */ } ); } );

The first title in the Remake series was confirmed to be releasing March 3, 2020 during Square Enix's E3 Showcase this week.

The game will take place completely within the city of Midgar; a section which made up roughly a quarter of the original game's content.

Larian studios announces Baldur's Gate 3

Ahead of what will be a huge week in gaming news, Baldur's Gate 3 has been officially announced.

Revealed at the recent Google Stadia Connect with a grim CGI trailer (seen below), Baldur's Gate 3 is being developed by Larian, the studio responsible for the incredible Divinity: Original Sin 2.

The upcoming sequel is deep in development but the studio isn't ready to divulge many details. Speaking with IGN, Larian CEO, Swen Vincke stated "“The agreement is that we respect their lore, and that we base ourselves in D&D 5th edition, otherwise we wouldn't be doing it. They want us to make a really good video game that feels like you're playing Dungeons & Dragons on your computer, alone or with friends. And so that's really what we want to make.”

A sequel to Breath of the Wild is in the works

A sequel to the hugely successful The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is in the works.

Nintendo made the announcement this morning as part of its E3 Direct.

What few scenes were shown saw Link and Zelda exploring a dark and eerie dungeon and awakening a mummified figure.

The overall tone was much darker than the first title, with atmospheric music that would have fit nicely in a horror game.

No gameplay, title, or release date have been confirmed at this point, so it's likely to still be a ways off.
