An important information this week is both the Civilization VI growth or the truth that EA’s inventory lost $3 billion in value due to Battlefront II. However hey, there’s additionally a number of Future 2 ne—wait, come again!

Okay, there’s additionally new footage of Okami HD, Star Citizen’s began promoting off fictitious land titles to fund improvement, Sq. says Deus Ex may not be fairly useless but, Jazz Jackrabbit hit GOG.com, and Battlezone II is being remade for 2018. That is gaming information for November 27 to December 1.

Weekly freebies

Get this: I unintentionally paid $120 to play XCOM: The Bureau Declassified, that mediocre third-person shooter 2K pressured out a pair years in the past. I rented it from GameFly after which…forgot to ship it again. For like, virtually a yr. Now, courtesy of Humble, you’ll be able to keep away from my mistake and grab a copy for free.

You may as well take a look at Elder Scrolls Online free of charge this weekend—truly, till December 6. That is the core recreation, not the more nostalgic Morrowind remake from earlier this yr, however that is on sale for half off, too. A warning, although: The ESO consumer is an 80GB obtain. Higher get began.

Land rush

Star Citizen’s raised roughly eleventy-billion in crowdfunding to date, however it’s not sufficient. (Will it ever be sufficient?) This week the narrative acquired much more weird although, as Cloud Imperium announced it is going to begin promoting plots of land for $50 and $100—land that doesn’t even exist but. $50 will nab you a 16 sq. kilometer “lot” whereas $100 will get you 64 sq. kilometers, labeled an “property.”

The odd half is you’re not likely getting a lot else—no calling dibs on a plot, as an example. You simply get a ticket that claims “In the future, assuming Star Citizen isn’t a pipe dream and finally ends up being an truly respectable recreation, I can trade this for land.” So uh…nicely, have enjoyable everybody.

Unusual certainly

Life is Unusual: Earlier than the Storm is sort of wrapped up—the third and ultimate episode is meant to reach earlier than the tip of the yr I believe. Turns on the market’ll be a bit extra Life is Unusual after the third episode although, with a Max-centric bonus episode titled “Farewell” imagined to arrive early subsequent yr.

Mankind Reunited

Final yr’s Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was nice…up till it wasn’t. Which is to say: Sq. principally launched half a recreation. Simply when the plot began rolling, so did credit. Then, to make issues worse, Sq. put Deus Ex on hiatus and assigned Eidos to work on Marvel video games, as if to indicate that as a result of no one preferred their half-game, we wouldn’t be getting one other.
