Kingdom Hearts 3 adding ultra-hard Critical Mode difficulty in tomorrow’s free update

Kingdom Hearts 3 will add Critical Mode difficulty in a free update coming tomorrow, April 23, Square Enix announced today. Critical Mode has appeared in several Kingdom Hearts games, and while it's always one of the hardest difficulty modes available, the exact rules for it have changed over the years. So no matter how Kingdom Hearts 3's Critical Mode plays out, it's going to be hard. In Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix, for example, Critical Mode decreased EXP and MP earnings but increased some AP g

Sekiro’s new update is aimed at making players experiment more

FromSoftware’s latest update for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will offer some much needed balance to the game’s use of Spirit Emblems and how the shinobi prosthetic tools and combat arts consume them. The following prosthetic tools will have their Spirit Emblem cost adjusted: Lazulite Sacred Flame, the Loaded Axe series, Sparking Axe, and Lazulite Axe. Two combat arts have been nerfed: Senpou Leaping Kicks and High Monk were delivering more posture damage than intended, FromSoftware said. Spiritfal

Apex Legends’ damage reduction buff for Gibraltar appears to be broken

Earlier this week, Respawn rolled out an update for Apex Legends that, among other things, conferred damage reduction to Gibraltar and Caustic—an attempt to compensate for the big boys' beefy builds, which are a whole lot easier to hit than, say, the slim-and-sleek Wraith or Octane. But it doesn't appear to be working quite as intended, and may in fact be doing more harm than good. Characters in Apex Legends can equip defensive shields that protect them from incoming damage; once the shields wea

"Operation Dark Hours will be your biggest challenge to date," The Division team wrote , "and we want to make sure that we've properly tested the large amount of balance changes that are coming to both PvE and PvP and listen to your feedback about the changes before introducing the raid."

Division 2 Dark Zone Will Drop 515 Gear Score Items

One change that has proved controversial among The Division 2 community is a bump to Dark Zone drops up to Gear Score 515. Now players will have a path all the way up to Gear Score 515, but they will have to enter the Dark Zone to get past 500. While this will give The Division 2 players a way to continue to grind in preparation for the Operation Dark Hours, there are plenty that would prefer the 515 Gear Score items be shared across the entire game. For example, Heroic Missions in Division 2 wi

The Last of Us Part 2 ending has been shot, so we could get a release date soon

I say all this not to rain on the clicker parade, but to temper expectations regarding The Last of Us Part 2's release date, which is currently unknown. That said, this does suggest that development is well over the hill, so to speak, and that lines up with all the rumors and purported leaks we've heard regarding the sequel's release date. For comparison, Druckmann previously said the mo-cap shooting for Uncharted 4 was finished roughly seven months before the game's release. But again, Naughty
