Google Wants to Kill the URL

Google’s Chrome turned 10 yesterday, and Google has major plans for where to take the browser from here — including options that could revamp how we experience the internet at its most fundamental level — the URL. For the past few years, Google has been considering how to transform the Uniform Resource Locator system into something that scales more effectively for the modern web.

Civilization VI is coming to the Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch is getting a big dose of strategy later this year. Today, 2K announced that Civilization VI is coming to the portable console, and the game is due to launch on November 16th. The Switch version looks to be the full game, and it will even come bundled with some of the later additions to the game, including the Viking, Poland, Australia, and Persia and Macedon content packs. It’ll also feature co-op and competitive play for up to four people playing wirelessly.

Rockstar Games Reveals New Plot Details for ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ (Exclusive)

Josh Bass, art director at Rockstar San Diego, and Aaron Garbut, director of art at Rockstar North, caught up with The Hollywood Reporter to offer exclusive information about the hotly anticipated game and the gang of outlaws at the core of its story. “Dutch’s presence loomed over the original Red Dead Redemption, and his influence on events was a big inspiration for the setting and direction of Red Dead Redemption 2,” Bass tells THR. “We all wanted to know more about him and the gang — what was it like riding in that gang? What led them to the events of the original game? What happened to them along the way?”

Why Starlink might be the best Star Fox game in decades

When Ubisoft’s E3 trailer for Starlink: Battle for Atlas ended with a tease for a Nintendo crossover, I was delighted — but I wasn’t impressed. The sound of Fox McCloud’s distinctive radio chatter spurred my nostalgia, but my initial impression was the same. Ubisoft’s space-faring toys-to-life game wasn’t going to be a real Star Fox game. It wasn’t until I played the game for myself at a preview event that I realized how true that prediction really was. Starlink: Battle for Atlas isn’t a follow-up to Nintendo’s beloved space shooter — so far, it’s better.

GTA 5 DLC for Xbox One and PS4 for April 2018

Fans of the popular game GTA Online have something to celebrate. Rumours have it that developer Rockstar is planning to release a big update into the GTA Online come April 2018.

 

GTA 5 DLC is coming for Xbox One, PS4

 

Rockstar’s GTA Online is continuously gaining steady popularity among PC, Xbox One, and PS4 players. In fact, the developer’s GTA 5 has been raking profits from the in-game money. It is very obvious that Rockstar team has been very supportive and creative in game development.

 

 

In case you don’t know, Rockstar has also poured a large content in the game. The developer has also brought some customization in the game. These contents include but not limited to tanks, orbital cannon, flying banks, among others.

However, a report has surfaced earlier hinting that Rockstar might cease to roll out an update to GTA Online. Yann2295, a GTA insider, has hinted that the game’s new content will be viewed big for the players. He also added that the huge content would be the game’s big release from the game developer.

 

The GTA Insider further claims that these speculations are not yet final. He said that Rockstar might as well change its plan.

 

“Alright, so the basics of the next update; It’s supposed to be fairly big, and to be about the consolidation of all the in-game businesses (crates, cars, bikers, bunkers, smugglers, etc.) into one,” Yann wrote. “It might also be the last update, but we’ve heard that before, so take it as you want. Though the drip-feed of this one is supposed to end near the launch of RDR2, so who knows.”
