Next-gen gaming is finally here. With today’s launch of the Xbox Series X and Series S, the next generation of consoles has officially arrived, ushering in a new era of console gaming. The Xbox Series X will enable players to enjoy 4K resolution gaming at up to 120 frames per second and provides the improved hardware that developers need in order to make more demanding, resource-intensive games. The all-digital Xbox Series S is slightly less powerful than the Series X, but significantly cheaper at $300 compared to $500. Both consoles are available now but most retailers have had intermittent availability so it may require some looking around before you find a store that has one in stock. You can check out the official launch trailer for the Xbox Series X/S below.

  2. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla   Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has officially launched. The 12th mainline game in the Assassin’s Creed series, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set during the Viking invasion of Britain and has players assume the role of a fictional Viking raider named Eivor. The game was originally expected to launch on November 17, but Ubisoft decided to advance the release date in order to coincide with today’s launch of the Xbox Series X/S. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available on both current-gen and next-gen systems and will be arriving on the PlayStation 5 when it launches on November 12. You can check out Ubisoft’s official deep dive trailer for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla below.

  3. Fortnite Monthly Subscription?   It looks like Fortnite may soon be getting monthly subscriptions. No announcements have been made yet, but Epic Games has reportedly been sending surveys to players asking for opinions on a monthly subscription package. The package would include the current season battle pass, an outfit pack that will give players cosmetic items before they arrive in the shop, and 1,000 V-bucks each month. The proposed price points range from $5 to $19 and it seems like player reception has been positive overall. It’s important to note that none of this news means that Fortnite will actually be getting a monthly subscription for certain, but it’s clear that the idea is very much on the Epic Games radar.

  4. Genshin Impact Leaking Phone Numbers   Genshin Impact has apparently been accidentally exposing users’ phone numbers. The issue revolves around the password recovery process which prompts users to verify the mobile phone number associated with their account. Instead of providing a censored version of the phone number for verification, a bug made it so that the page displayed the entire uncensored number for some users. This meant that any hacker who tried to steal an account by resetting its password was also able to acquire the phone number linked to the account. Developer miHoYo has since fixed the issue, but it’s unclear how many users had their data leaked before the bug was patched.

  5. Cyberpunk Release Date Confirmed   CD Projekt Red has re-confirmed the release date of Cyberpunk 2077 to be December 10. This news comes after rumors recently began circulating claiming that the long-awaited game would be getting delayed yet again. CD Projekt Red responded by saying, “As a rule, we don’t comment on rumors or speculation” but would confirm “the new launch date of December 10.” While this wouldn’t be the first time that the game got delayed after the studio “100% confirmed” its launch date, this news should still be reassuring to the many fans who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Cyberpunk 2077 just one month from today.
