Another week, another update for the battle royale juggernaut Fortnite. Version 3.3 will drop this Thursday bringing with it a few changes, Most notably smoke grenades are being removed and llamas will be added.

For those looking to take advantage of cross play compatibility between PC and and Xbox One for ARK: Survival Evolved will have to wait a little while longer.  While it was originally set for December, we will have till 2017.  Luckily it’s going to be January 2017.  Developer Studio Wildcard lead developer Jeremy Stieglitz explained that it “requires reformatting ARK’s application handling to work with Universal Windows Platform.”  So look to have Play Anywhere capability next month.

We always thought that if cross-play gaming were to become a success, it’d probably begin with a game like Minecraft. It seems that Minecraft’s developer Mojang agree. There was a lot of buzz around cross-play a couple of months back, with developers and senior gaming figures all saying what a great idea it was – the studio behind Rocket League literally said they were ready for Xbox One-PS4 cross-play the moment Sony gave the nod. But has that nod been given to another studio? Minecraft brings everybody together, including competing devices! Realms supports cross-platform play, & there's a free trial! … Read More »

Cross-platform play is one of those holy grails in gaming – we’ve seen it before, rarely, but that’s mostly been limited to consoles and PC. What the fans really want is for the two dominant forces in console gaming to get together and allow gamers across the spectrum play together. Microsoft have said they’re up for it. A number of developers have said they’re up for it. Even Psyonix, the studio behind the fantastic Rocket League, have said they could make it happen within hours of the ok.
