Furthermore, the degree of commitment of the company in question has been adapted according to the needs of CD Projekt RED.

'of controversy. In fact, it seems that this choice is in line with corporate values, which focus in particular on the concept of volunteering.

In practice, all Fntastic collaborators are volunteers, with the difference that those who work full-time are paid, while part-time contributors are rewarded in other ways, for example with "cool" products, participation certificates, game codes and of course a large dose of visibility.

Return to Monkey Island, the characters of the adventure Return to Monkey Island will be an exclusive time for Nintendo Switch, at least on consoles: the authors have announced it with the new trailer of the gameplay shown during the last Nintendo Direct Mini, but it was not this detail that led to the controversy surrounding the long-awaited return of the legendary adventure series.

In fact, it has happened that many users do not they appreciated the graphic style of the new chapter and thought it well to present it in a very aggressive way, to the point that Ron Gilbert has declared that he will no longer comment on the game.

Diablo Immortal, one of the many bosses featured in the According to one campaign estimate, it takes $ 540,000 to fully upgrade a Diablo Immortal character.

The first images of Everywhere

Everywhere, an artwork of the game It seems that the first i images of Everywhere, the mysterious project developed by the former Rockstar Games Leslie Benzie of which so far, in practice, nothing had really been seen apart from enthusiastic reports based on rumors that are anything but confirmed. To say, the game has often been indicated as a possible rival of GTA, which on paper appears unlikely for obvious reasons.

However, the shots show a rather colorful and cartoonish graphic style, therefore close to experiences like Fortnite rather than the exasperated realism of Grand Theft Auto, but it seems that even this approach is not definitive and therefore subject to possible changes in the course of a development that we do not yet know how long it will last, or where it will actually lead us.

PlayStation VR2 in the first real photo

PlayStation VR2 For the moment there does not seem to be a great enthusiasm for the new PS5 virtual reality headset, but when the first real photo of PlayStation appeared on social networks VR2 curiosity has taken over. Moreover, the authors of the shot, the Bit Planet Games development team, were apparently convinced that they could publish it without violating any NDA. Spoiler: they were wrong.

Also pictured is the thin USB-C cable that will be used to connect the headset to the console.
