Grand Theft Auto Online, the multiplayer mode for Grand Theft Auto V, had its "biggest year" ever in 2017, developer Rockstar Games has announced. The studio announced this in a blog post recently (via IGN), though it didn't say if this achievement is based on player numbers, revenue, or some other metric. For December 2017 specifically, Rockstar said more people played GTA Online than ever before in the game's history.This is extremely impressive, given that GTA Online launched more than four years ago, in October 2013. It is exceedingly rare for any game to have that long of a tail. GTA Online's ongoing success can no doubt be attributed to Rockstar's impressive commitment to launching new updates and activities on almost a weekly basis. The new player record for GTA Online comes not long after Rockstar launched the large-scale Doomsday Heist expansion. So what seems clear is that, as Rockstar and parent company Take-Two have always said, if you make good content people will flock to it. GTA Online had its best quarter ever when it comes to revenue for the three-month period ended September 30, though parent company Take-Two has not shared any specific figures. Take-Two and Rockstar have shied away from discussing specific performance figures for GTA Online, though in 2015 we learned that the game had 8 million players weekly.Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick at one time referred to GTA Online as "the gift that keeps on giving" as it relates to the money it makes from the game's microtransactions. GTA V has shipped an astonishing 85 million copies across all platforms since launch, making it one of the best-selling games ever in the United States. Given the massive success of GTA Online, it stands to reason that Rockstar's next big game, this Spring's Red Dead Redemption 2, may offer something similar. All that we know for sure, however, is that the western will have a "brand-new online multiplayer experience." Info from Gamespot.com

The Writers Guild of America has announced its nominees for best video game writing for 2017, with Madden NFL 18, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and others making the list.A Madden game getting a writing nomination may sound odd. But this year's game has a story-focused mode called Longshot featuring Oscar-winning actor Mahershala Ali. It tells the twisting and turning story of a football player's pursuit to make it to the NFL. The mode was one of our favourite parts of this year's game.The other nominees this year for "Outstanding Achievement in Video Game Writing" include Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow. You can see a full rundown of this year's nominees and their credited writers below, as posted on the WGA's website.Any game released in the time between December 1, 2016 and November 30, 2017 was eligible for the Outstanding Achievement in Video Game Writing award. However, the game needed to have on-screen credits and the credited writers must have already been or applied to be a member of the WGA Video Game Writers Caucus when the scripts were submitted.The winners will be announced on Sunday, February 11. Panels comprised of video game writers and Writers Guild members will vote to determine the winner.OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT IN VIDEOGAME WRITINGDishonored: Death of the OutsiderExternal Writers Anna Megill, Hazel Monforton; Lead Narrative Designer Sachka Duval; Arkane Studios-Bethesda SoftworksFuturama: Worlds of TomorrowWritten by Cas Ruffin, Patric M.

As promised, Bungie has made a wide variety of announcements about changes on the way to Destiny 2. The developer has pledged to be more open about its development plans for the future, and among those are significant adjustments to Eververse and the items that are distributed through the microtransaction-based store.Bungie acknowledged that "the scales are tipped too far towards Tess at the moment," referencing the in-game shopkeeper who runs Eververse. The store "was never intended to be a substitute for end-game content and rewards," which is what has become for dedicated players. To address this, Bungie outlined a number of changes in a new blog post.For starters, Bungie says it's "shifting the balance of new content in favor of activity rewards over Bright Engrams," which are currently obtained by leveling up or purchasing them with real money. Activity rewards will now include things like Ghosts, Sparrows, and ships, which Bungie noted were only acquired through Bright Engrams recently. And while they'll no longer be the exclusive home for those items, there will be a "gameplay path" to obtaining Bright Engrams and their rewards. That change also applies to event-specific Engrams, like those offered during The Dawning, something that was a major criticism of the recently concluded event. Furthermore, Bungie intends to provide more ways of directly purchasing the items players want, rather than having to blindly purchase Bright Engrams in the hopes of getting what you're looking for.More changes will be introduced with the start of Season 3, but some will be in place for the start of the next seasonal event, Crimson Days, on February 13. Completing certain milestones during the event will earn you rewards, including a Legendary emote (for the Nightfall milestone), weapon skin (Raid milestone), and Exotic Sparrow (Crimson Days milestone). When leveling up, you'll earn both a Crimson Engram (for the event) and an Illuminated Engram during the event. Crimson Engrams can also be earned through drops in the Crimson Days match and finishing the aforementioned Crimson Days milestone with each of your characters. This Engram is "very strongly weighted to new rewards when decrypted until all new event items have been obtained."As noted above, outside of real-money purchases, Engrams are earned by leveling up. Given the value of the rewards inside, that's part of what made last year's XP controversy so significant (the other component being the lack of communication from Bungie). The studio said it's continuing to look at how quickly XP is earned, but it agrees that the current setup is not ideal."Right now, it's too slow in general and lopsided towards grinding specific activities (which is not a fun grind) and we want to fix that without making those activities low value to players who aren't grinding them (fairness is cool)," Bungie explained. "Our first attempt turned out to be unworkably buggy so we’re having to investigate other angles. We will continue to update you as we move forward."All of this is just some of the changes outlined in Bungie's development update post. It also made it clearer what content will be available for free to all owners (versus those who purchase the DLC), announced the return of Faction Rallies (which will follow server maintenance), and outlined a ton of short- and long-term updates that are coming, including Masterwork armor and quality-of-life improvements.Info from Gamespot.com

In a much-anticipated blog post today, Destiny 2 game director Christopher Barrett talked abut what's coming to the sci-fi shooter in the time ahead. Things kick off on January 30 with an update that will expand the Masterwork system to include armor for the first time.This armor offers better damage reduction when you're using your Super ability. Additionally, you can re-roll your Masterwork armor stat type, and it can be upgraded as well using Cores and Shards tied to Masterworks. The January 30 update also changes how Raid rewards work with the aim of making them "more unique and interesting.""They will now feature mods with Raid-specific perks, and we are adjusting the rewards to ensure a Raid item drops from each major encounter," Barrett explained in a blog post. "The Raid vendor will also directly sell Leviathan and Eater of Worlds armor and weapons for purchase with Raid tokens and Legendary Shards."What's more, there will be new perks that can drop from the final encounters in the Leviathan and Eater of Worlds raids. Barrett added that Bungie is working on other rewards specific to some raids and some activities are coming in the future.An update coming in February, meanwhile, will add scoring and high score tracking to Nightfall Strikes, which will replace the existing time-limit mechanic. "The scoring is similar to the Destiny 1 system but with adjustments to emphasize competitive execution of Strike objectives and support for player selectable score modifiers," Barrett said. "In February, Nightfall High Scores will be exposed in-game via new emblems and will unlock rewards. We also have plans for Clan and Community High Scores in the works."Destiny 2's February update will also add a 2.0 version of mods, which is described as a "full rework" of how mods work for armor and weapons. "This will focus on reducing redundant mods, more unique theming, and greatly increasing their impact on your power," Barrett said. "We are aiming for a February release, but the scope of the rework could push parts or all of it out to early spring. We will be evaluating how Mods play into the Bright Engram economy as a result, because we're sensitive to pay-to-win outcomes."Here are some of the other changes coming to Destiny 2 in the February update, with descriptions written by Bungie:Quickplay ImprovementsWe are adjusting game mode rules to increase the pace of gameplay and power ammo acquisition in Quickplay.PC Tower ChatWe are adding text chat to the Tower for the PC version of the game.Exotic Repetition ReductionThis will prevent players from receiving the same Exotic twice in a row. You may still receive duplicates, just not consecutively.Fireteam Members on Destination MapYou will finally be able to see the other members of your fireteam on the destination map. No more having to ask your fireteam where they went when they fast travel to another landing zone.Then in Spring 2018, Bungie will launch Destiny 2's next paid expansion following last year's Curse of Osiris. While some of the content will of course be locked behind the paywall, everyone is getting new updates to other parts of the game. For Crucible, Barrett said Bungie is hoping to give players "new reasons to play, more variety, and balance improvements." One part of this is a new ranking system; starting with Season 3, there will be seasonal Crucible ranks, broken into two categories: Valor and Glory. Here is a rundown of the two:Valor – A progression rank that goes up as you complete matches. Winning helps you move up faster, but there are no loss penalties.Glory – A progression rank that goes up when you win and down when you lose. Performance is how you move up here.Also new in the update will be private matches for everyone, which you can invite friends to and choose a map and mode. Bungie is also launching a 6v6 playlist (an increase from some of the current 4v4 modes), a "Mayhem event" for a limited time, and some behind-the-scenes improvements and fixes to improve the experience overall.That's not all that's coming and changing in the spring update; the following are some "highlights" that Barrett called out in his blog post, including increasing the vault space, support for multiple emotes, and more:Additional HighlightsWeapon and Ability Balance PassSandbox adjustments based on player feedback and data from the live game. The Sandbox team will share specific changes as we lead up to Season 3.Exotic Weapon and Armor Balance PassExotic weapons and armor are receiving a comprehensive design pass to ensure they stand out from the rest of the gear and offer new, exciting, powerful ways to play.Seasonal ReputationSpecific vendors will now display a Seasonal ranking. Earning reputation will unlock unique Seasonal rewards and will reset each Season.Improved Iron Banner and Faction RalliesIn addition to the changes that you will see when Iron Banner and Faction Rallies return this month, we will continue iterating on these to make them unique, exciting experiences that you all look forward to.Playlist Repetition ReductionThis feature solves the problem of experiencing the same playlist entry multiple times in consecutive or frequent succession for both Crucible and Strikes.End Game Player PursuitsWe agree with your feedback on the imbalance between Achievement and Bright Engram rewards, and we will be making adjustments to shift more rewards into specific endgame pursuits instead of generic XP grinding for Bright Engrams. We are excited to share the details as soon as we have them worked out.Multi-EmoteWhen multi-emote launches, you will be able to choose which emote you have equipped to each of your four emote slots.Vault spaceWe are targeting an additional 50 slots to player vaults. We don't believe just adding more space is a complete solution and are actively working on other changes to reduce load on your vault space.We are adding an Exotic accessory tab to Vault collections so you will no longer need to spend Vault space on Exotic Ships, Sparrows, and Ghosts.PC Clan ChatIn addition to the Tower chat that is targeted for February, we are adding clan chat to the PC version of the game.Heroic Strike ChangesWe'll be introducing modifiers to add more gameplay variety to the experience.Then in Fall 2018, or potentially sooner according to Bungie, there will be "a lot more" in terms of updates and changes. However, Barrett said Bungie is "not quite ready" to talk about these things with any specificity, though he did provide an outline of what players can expect:Item Collections and RecordsWeapon Slot and Archetype ImprovementsAdditional Crucible Playlists (e.g. Rumble)Better Clan RewardsMasterwork ExoticsPinnacle Weapon and Gear ImprovementsTrials of the Nine improvementsShaders and dismantlingThe Future of Guided GamesAddress Solo Vs Fireteam matchingBungie also today announced some changes coming to Destiny 2's microtransaction system, quality-of-life improvements, the next Faction Rally, and more.Info from Gamespot.com

Destiny 2 has been a little unclear about what content is free through updates and what will only be available to players who shell out for the optional DLC, but in an update today on Bungie's official blog, the developer tried to make that designation a little clear.As the graphic below makes clear, there are three basic tiers of content: expansion, seasons, and Eververse. Expansions are "purchasable updates that typically add new Story, Destinations, and Gear, as well as new Crucible, Strike, and Raid Lair content." So new Legendaries and Exotics, destination rewards, and additional campaign content will require buying into the game's DLC.Free players will have access to "Iron Banner, Faction Rallies, and their rewards." And the developers added that "new Seasonal rewards from Crucible, Strikes, and Trials of the Nine will be available to all players." This follows the progression from a previous update where, following the cancellation of December's Faction Rally, both that mode and the Iron Banner were opened up to all players.Eververse will still be a separate "elective" purchase, however Bungie is making several big changes to how that content will be distributed. These changes will all go into effect starting February 13 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC with the Crimson Days event, and Bungie promises "even more changes on the way in Season 3." And you should also check out Destiny 2's upcoming Masterworks update, which will introduce armor to the system. Faction Rallies are coming back soon, and quality-of-life changes are on the way.Info from Gamespot.com

Back in December, Bungie had plans to launch Destiny 2's first Faction Rally event of Season 2 following Curse of Osiris's release. It ultimately canceled the event as the developer shifted courses on what content would be available to those with and without purchasing the DLC. Along with Iron Banner, Faction Rally will now be open to all players whether you own the DLC or not--and after the delay, the first Season 2 Faction Rally is nearly here.Following an upcoming hotfix, the new Faction Rally event will begin on January 16 and run until January 23. (Iron Banner returns on January 30.) Factions will return to the Tower and allow players to pledge their allegiance, with their activities then contributing progress toward unlocking Faction-specific gear. New items, including armor ornaments and base gear, will be available from the Faction of your choosing, a selection of which you can see in the images below.Aside from those rewards that players will earn from their Faction, the three groups will also be competing with each other. The Faction that obtains the most rewards packages will be deemed the winner, and that group's exclusive weapon will then be sold for one week. Assuming prices remain consistent with those earlier events, members of the winning Faction will be able to purchase the weapon for 1,000 Glimmer, while everyone else can buy it for 50,000. Unlike in the past, though, all three will sell a weapon of the same type--this time around, it's an auto rifle. You can also see those in the gallery above.The return of Faction Rally and Iron Banner were just some of the announcements Bungie made today. It also shared in-depth details about what content will be free versus paid, changes to Eververse and cosmetic items, quality-of-life improvements, and a roadmap that includes the addition of Masterwork armor.

In a recent blog post, Bungie laid out some sudden and big changes coming to Destiny 2. In addition to a reworked loot drop system, updates to the Crucible, and an expanded scope to recently added Masterwork items, the developers also included mentions of several changes that affect the quality of life for the game, which many fans have been clamoring to see for quite some time.During the last few months, many fans online have been outspoken about several design decisions and practices that have been occurred in-game. In addition to expressing outrage over Bungie altering experience gains for players without notice, the more dedicated players found that the Eververse--the in-game microtransaction store--featured many items that were otherwise difficult to find on your own. While players were rewarded with Bright Engrams--special Engrams that yield items from the Eververse--these rewards are few and far between, and rarely yield the more high-end items.Game director Christopher Barrett detailed a very specific road map of upcoming features in the blog post, which also highlighted a number of points that touched upon several annoyances that many of the hardcore players had. For example, players will be able to select multiple emotes for their character, and also more space will be added to the vault. Here's several of the highlights below:Weapon and Ability Balance Pass: Sandbox adjustments based on player feedback and data from the live game. The Sandbox team will share specific changes as we lead up to Season 3.Exotic Weapon and Armor Balance Pass: Exotic weapons and armor are receiving a comprehensive design pass to ensure they stand out from the rest of the gear and offer new, exciting, powerful ways to play.Seasonal Reputation: Specific vendors will now display a Seasonal ranking.

Among the biggest surprises in tech news last year was the announcement of a collaboration between Intel and AMD. The two companies announced in November that they had partnered to produce fast integrated graphics solutions for laptops, and at the Consumer Electronics Show, the two revealed what they've come up with.Intel is launching a new G-series of its Core i chips, which combine Intel's H-series CPUs with a custom version of AMD's Radeon RX Vega GPU. It utilizes Intel's Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) to make this happen and is equipped with 4 GB of dedicated HBM2. Intel says the end result is a chip that "reduces the usual silicon footprint to less than half that of discrete components implemented separately." In effect, what that means is much smaller and more power-efficient devices--laptops in particular--which are capable of more demanding tasks, such as virtual reality.Among the devices this will be utilized in is a new Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing), which is pictured in the gallery above. Previously codenamed Hades Canyon, Intel says it offers the company's smallest VR-capable system ever. Two different variations of the NUC will be available. There's the more powerful NUC8i7HVK, which is based an unlocked 8th gen Intel Core processor and Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics. The alternative is the more modest NUC8i7HNK, which still uses an 8th gen processor but utilizes Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics tech.The chip will also be used in new devices from HP and Dell, as well as an upcoming cloud gaming service being developed by Gamestream and Artesyn. We're still waiting on details regarding that, but as CNET notes, this could mean Intel and AMD compete with Nvidia and its GeForce Now service. Info from Gamespot.com

Over the past couple of months, Bungie has published blog posts, held livestreams, and taken to Twitter to address some of the more contentious issues surrounding Destiny 2 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Responding to public feedback and frustration about Bungie's perceived lack of transparency, the studio has stated an intention to be more open. Recently, the developer revealed that it will talk about the future of the game on Thursday, likely with a heavy emphasis on player feedback.On Twitter, game director Christopher Barrett stated that he does, in fact, read and watch as much feedback as possible across many platforms. And, presumably based on what he's read, he also announced that he'll discuss some of what's in store for Destiny 2 in 2018 later this week."For anyone curious--I read Bungie forums, I read Reddit, I read Twitter, I watch Twitch," he wrote. "I also play Destiny. I share your love of the game. I'll talk about where we are headed Thursday."This is likely in reference to the "development update" that Barrett and Bungie teased last week, although what it'll detail is unknown. It's possible that we might get at least a hint about the next expansion for the game. Recently, a PlayStation Store page leaked that showed Destiny 2: Gods of Mars as the next DLC pack, but Bungie has yet to say anything official about it yet.Info from Gamespot.com

Those eager to get their hands on Monster Hunter World will be able to sample it once again as part of a final beta test for the upcoming game. Unlike the second beta that ran in December, this one will introduce some new content, but it'll unfortunately once again be limited to PlayStation 4.Capcom announced the third and final beta test today, which will run just days before the game's full release. The PS4 beta begins at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET on January 18, or 2 AM GMT on January 19. It concludes on January 21 (or 22) at the same time.Monster Hunter World's first beta was conducted in early December, exclusively for PlayStation Plus subscribers on PS4. A second beta followed later in the month for all PS4 owners consisting of the same two areas and three monsters to hunt: the Great Jagras, Anjanath, and Barroth. All of that will be present in this final beta, but you'll also get to square off against World's flagship monster, the Nergigante.Nergigante is an Elder Dragon and the monster featured on World's box art. The full game also sees the return of several other Elder Dragons, as well as the introduction of some new ones, which are showcased in World's new trailer.Monster Hunter World launches for PS4 and Xbox One on January 26. It's also headed to PC, with Capcom recently saying that version will arrive this fall. The PS4 version has gotten not only preferential treatment with betas, but it will also receive exclusive content themed around Horizon: Zero Dawn. Capcom has similarly announced a limited-edition Monster Hunter PS4 controller and Starter Pack bundles, but only for Japan. World's first free "major" DLC arrives sometime this spring and adds a new monster.Info from Gamespot.com

The biggest news in cybersecurity last week was the discovery of the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities in modern computer processors. They affect virtually all computers in the world, and as a result of this severity, hardware companies have been scrambling to create and release updates that patch the holes. In its haste, however, it appears that Microsoft released a series of updates for Windows that could break AMD systems. Recently, the company was forced to remove these updates from some systems running AMD processors and graphics cards.As reported by ComputerWorld, users had begun complaining of bricked computers last week. Some AMD users had run into blue screen errors, an inability to restart their computers, and other issues.Earlier this week, after several days of complaints, Microsoft pulled the patches from some AMD systems and acknowledged that they had been causing issues. But Microsoft placed the blame squarely on AMD, stating on its website that "some AMD chipsets do not conform to the documentation previously provided to Microsoft to develop the Windows operating system mitigations to protect against the chipset vulnerabilities known as Spectre and Meltdown."Microsoft promised that it'll work with AMD to resolve the problems as soon as possible, but it has not provided a specific timetable yet. In the meantime, you can check out our feature on what PC gamers need to know about Meltdown and Spectre here.Info from Gamespot.com

Monster Hunter is one of those series known just as much for its punishing difficulty as its actual gameplay. It's become a mystical franchise of sorts, often talked about in vague, awed terms by those who don't know it, and with fervor by those who do. Traditionally, Monster Hunter games have appealed to a small cult following, with a steep learning curve that dissuades many players from checking it out.However, the series' first Western console release in several years is approaching with Monster Hunter World, and a huge new group of players will have the chance to check it out. To help guide these beginners and hopefully reduce the learning curve, a group of fans have created a cool new support group.Called Adopt-a-Hunter, it's designed to pair up a veteran with a new player, so that the vet can explain some of the tricks and nuances of Monster Hunter that the game may not explain. It also will likely give the new player access to communities of other Monster Hunter players that they can play with.It's great to see a fan initiative attempting to become a sort of tutorial system for the game; it'll hopefully help players learn the game and prevent them from becoming discouraged by its difficulty. Signups for Adopt-a-Hunter are open now at its website; according to the FAQ, matches will be sent out a few days before launch. You can learn more about the initiative at the site.Monster Hunter World will be released on PS4 and Xbox One on January 26; the PC version is coming this fall. Capcom has recently revealed some of the DLC and crossover gear that's coming to the game. Specifically, we know that PS4-exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn gear and Mega Man equipment is coming to World.Info from Gamespot.com
