The Kickstarter campaign for Divinity: Original Sin II has come to a close, and it was another rousing success. The campaign raised over $2 million, quadrupling its funding goal.
As a result, all of the game’s stretch goals were met, meaning that the game will come with plenty of extra content for gamers to really sink their teeth into.
For those who haven’t yet taken the plunge into the original game yet, Divinity: Original Sin – Enhanced Edition is being released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this month. It will feature full voice-overs, improved visuals, new quests and characters, and a reworked narrative with a different ending.
Ever since The Last Of Us blew everyone’s minds in 2013 people have been asking one simple question: WHEN WILL I GET A SEQUEL?!
Well, we still don’t have an answer to that question, but Sony wants everyone to know that they want one just as bad as everyone else. Here’s what Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida said on the issue:
“I asked [community strategist Arne Meyer] that question last night over dinner. We haven’t confirmed The Last of Us 2, but ever since the launch of the first game, people like [creative director Neil Druckmann] are talking about some ideas for a potential sequel, some experiments that they want to do,” said Yoshida.”
While it seems strange at first that development hasn’t even begun yet for The Last of Us 2, considering how loved the first game was I’m sure they want to do everything they can to live up to it.

Until Dawn was a game that nobody was really sure how it would turn out, but it released and just about everyone loved the interactive horror game.
Speaking with Eurogamer, Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida revealed the company was extremely happy and surprised by just how much love the game was getting:
“We’re super happy with the reactions from people, especially people who are streaming or posting videos on YouTube. It’s super fun to watch other people play, even after you’ve finished the game, because other people make different choices.”
“I’m very happy with how the game was received. I think everybody was caught by surprise by the positive reaction. That’s a really great thing for the future of the interactive drama genre. We’re a big fan of this genre. These games can talk to a broader audience. You don’t have to be good at playing games. You can even just watch your friend play the game.”
Until Dawn is available exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
Sony Boss Shuhei Yoshida has gone on record saying that the company is always facing a continues battle to stay relevant in a world of quickly-evolving technology.
Speaking with Eurogamer, the PlayStation boss went into detail regarding the company’s outlook on the current gaming climate and how things look going forward:
“Like Michael Pachter saying console is dead, or this is the last console generation, I feel we’ve been fighting against obsolescence.”
“Even when PS4 is doing well, you might look at the sales, the fast pace of PS4 sales, we may be just selling to the same people faster, right! That’s a sad view of things, but it could be the case.”
“Every time there’s a new threat, like PC was before, now it’s mobile, look at the Japanese market which has the heaviest impact. When you look at the video game market in Japan, it’s going like crazy because of mobile is huge.”
It’s true that, as gaming technology evolves the current way that we do things is always in danger of becoming obsolete, but as of right now i’d say things are looking good for consoles. They may be selling faster to the same people, but that doesn’t change the fact that those people are several million strong and show no signs of getting off the ride.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is on the horizon, and recently the game’s lead designer revealed how long it will take the average gamer to finish the game.
Speaking to Pixel Vulture, the game’s lead designer Mike Brinker said the game will take around 20 hours to finish. However, if you are a completionist then that time will be doubled.
“Expect to spend around 30-40 hours getting everything done. This is gathering every weapons, ability and completing every side quest.”
“It all comes down to how you want to play through the game. Running through the game will take you around 15 – 20 hours.”
“So expect double the play time collecting everything and exploring every secret tomb. In terms of scale, all our hub spaces, the areas that allow you to explore and choose your own way to play, have been increased by three time the size.”
Rise of the Tomb Raider launches for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 on November 10th.
