Resident Evil 7 players will be able to transfer their saves between versions of the game bought on Xbox One and the PC Windows Store, raising questions as to whether the game will be part of Microsoft's Xbox Play Anywhere scheme.

In an article about features present in each format of the game, Dengeki (as translated by IGN Japan) reports that "the Windows Store version can share play data with the Xbox One version". In a statement to IGN, Capcom confirmed that Xbox-PC cross-saving is included.

Cross-saves are a key feature of Xbox Play Anywhere - the Microsoft promotion that sees buyers receive PC and Xbox One versions of participating games for the price of a single purchase. In the case of multiplayer titles, cross-play is also included.

Not All Mass Effect Species Will Make It to Andromeda - Fri, 11/25/2016 - 08:46

BioWare has confirmed that not every species players encountered in the original Mass Effect trilogy will be featured in Mass Effect Andromeda.

Speaking with Game Informer, creative director Mac Walters explained that while not every alien race from the Milky Way Galaxy that was established in the first three games will be making it to Andromeda, the studio isn't ruling out the possibility of them appearing in future installments.

"We've designed the IP in such a way that they can all show up," Walters said. "For hopefully obvious reasons, they're not all going to show up in the first game."

WW2 Codebreaking Mansion to Become School for Elite Hackers - Fri, 11/25/2016 - 07:30

Bletchley Park, the British World War II codebreaking HQ made famous after its staff cracked the Nazi Enigma Code, is to be turned into a boarding school for teenagers "gifted and talented" in the realm of cyber defence.

Planned by Qufaro - a not-for-profit cybersecurity group - and due to open in 2018, the training college would be free to attend, and require no specific grades to enter, instead setting aptitude tests and favouring those with proven exceptional skills.

After a £5 million restoration, the school will take in around 500 16-19 year olds, with 40% of teaching focusing specifically on cybersecurity - an area the UK is said to be lacking a skilled workforce in.

Gearbox CEO Teases Duke Nukem Announcement Next Week - Fri, 11/25/2016 - 06:00

Gearbox is planning to reveal... something Duke Nukem-related next Thursday, December 1.

The hint comes from CEO Randy Pitchford, responding to a fan's interest in a Duke Nukem-Gears of War crossover:

@Alex_Everatt On December 1st, we are announcing something you might really enjoy :)

— Randy Pitchford (@DuvalMagic) November 24, 2016

While it's unlikely it will be as straightforward as the tweet suggests (although, Gears of War 4 isn't exactly free of unusual cameos, considering it includes hip-hop duo Run the Jewels already), it does seem probable that the announcement will be made at The Game Awards, which take place on the same day.

Virtual Reality is Pushing Gaming Into Another 'Golden Age': Xbox Co-founder - Fri, 11/25/2016 - 04:00
From a CNBC report:The Xbox and PS2 were two of the most popular consoles ever and now gaming is entering "another golden age," according to Otto Berkes (a pioneer of the gaming industry), driven by virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI). "One of the aspects of VR that has incredible potential is interaction and communication -- interacting with characters that are both artificial and virtual, being able to blur distance and geography, you can be anywhere and literally in any time," Berkes told CNBC in an interview on Wednesday. "We're entering another golden age of interactive content development."

The Long Road to Diablo 4 is Paved with More Diablo 3 - Thu, 11/24/2016 - 23:29

Like many hardcore Diablo fans, I was hoping for an announcement related to Diablo 4 at this year’s BlizzCon. In fact, I almost expected it. Over the course of 2016 we’d seen a handful of Blizzard job listings around an “unannounced project” related to Diablo, and leading up to the show, things had been quiet on the Diablo 3 front – unusually so for a game that has had a steady stream of updates since Reaper of Souls was released more than two years ago. And to cap it all off, this year is the series’ 20th anniversary. Perfect timing, right?
