Blizzard has announced that you can now stream their games via Facebook Live on PC, with Mac soon to follow

Back in June Blizzard announced a collaboration with Facebook which would allow players to easily stream any of the developer’s games through Facebook Live. Today, the feature is finally going live.

Starting today the live-streaming capability will be available in every Blizzard game in the Americas, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, with a complete global rollout expected “soon.” It’s currently only available to PC gamers, but Mac support is also in the works. All you’ll need to do is connect your Battle.net account to Facebook, and then you can stream games like Overwatch or Hearthstone directly to your Facebook page.

This is extremely cool news and no doubt many will take advantage of it. I hope to see many cool streams on Facebook in the near future.

ShinEnMultimedia_FE_ZACK-656x656

No GravatarShinEnMultimedia_FE_ZACK-656x656In a recent interview, Shin’en revealed they are working on a new project and it will be on a Nintendo console. However they also noted that it is too early to discuss the finer details

 

The problem is I can’t talk about it. I’d really like to talk about it, but if I say anything…. let me put it this way: we’re very happy to work with Nintendo, we’ll keep doing it and our next project will be with them. We’re also carrying out new experiments and creating new prototypes, but I can’t talk about this either, because they’re so deep in their initial stage that there would be no point talking about it now.

No GravatarHello Games has released a launch trailer for No Man’s Sky on PS4. The trailer shows off the various things the player can do and gives an overview of what the game is about. You can check out the trailer below.

Pete Hines, the Vice President of Bethesda Softworks spoke with Finder.com.au about various subjects and the issue of game sales was discussed. It was revealed that Both The Evil Within and Rage sold well enough to warrant sequels. This doesn’t mean sequels are confirmed though as Hines refused to comment on what Bethesda has planned.

Pete Hines: I can’t talk about the unannounced stuff and what we may or may not do. I get myself in trouble whenever I do that. Even when we were talking about the Morrowind Remaster, if I come out and say, ‘I just don’t think that is going to happen,’ then people freak out. So I won’t confirm or deny stuff we may or may not do, as people jump to the wrong conclusions. But I do think both The Evil Within and Rage did well enough that we could make sequels. Personally I loved Rage and had a tonne of fun playing it, but we have a lot of stuff in the pipeline right now so you will have to wait and see.

With this known, it is exciting to think that we might see sequels to these games in the not so distant future. We will just need to wait and be patient.

KOF

No GravatarAtlus and SNK sent out the following

We’ll not beat around the bush. Team Ikari Warriors is an elite mercenary agency,
led by Commander Heidern, that’s tasked with gathering intel about Antonov and some
of the other… undesirables in
THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIV tournament.
These soldiers of fortune are big, strong, and not afraid of getting up close and personal in combat. Leading these warriors into the tournament is Colonel Ralf Jones, nicknamed the One Man Army, who is no stranger to fighting. Although Ralf is a bit hotheaded, he is an exceptional leader who utilizes a dangerous mercenary combat style that focuses on deadly strikes. Oh, did we mention that he’s ripped a tank wide open with his bare hands? Yeah, he’s pretty dangerous. His brother in arms, Lieutenant Clark Still, is a pretty dangerous dude too. Clark also trains in mercenary combat style, but he’s geared more towards wrapping his opponents up like a pretzel and slamming them. That being said, he’s calmer and more level-headed than Ralf and just as formidable. Lastly, we have the cold and professional operator Leona Heidern. Leona is the adopted daughter of Commander Heidern who uses a hybrid fighting style that combines martial arts with Heidern style assassination techniques. Although she is simply a soldier, she has the powerful blood of Orochi running through her veins and must keep her emotions in check to prevent bad things from happening. She’s not a total ice queen though, because Leona is very loyal to the Ikari Warriors and will fight to protect her friends.

Also, don’t forget to get ahead of the competition and download the free demo. Practice local versus with seven characters (Kyo Kusanagi, Mai Shiranui, Iori Yagami, Sylvie Paula Paula, King of Dinosaurs, Shun’ei, and Nelson) before the game comes out on Aug. 23!
