Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Royale Goes Free For A Week

Official Westworld Mobile Game Shuts Down

The publisher of the official Westworld mobile game was sued soon after the game was released. Bethesda filed the lawsuit as the game felt way too similar to one of its mobile titles.

Two Forza Horizon 4 Dance Emotes Removed Amid Copyright Lawsuits

Microsoft’s Turn 10 Studios has removed two dance emotes from Forza Horizon 4 amid ongoing copyright lawsuits against Epic Games for including virtual versions of dances popularized in real life.

Kingdom Hearts 3 Epilogue Will Need An Internet Connection To Be Viewed

Usually at the end of a game, there will be a cinematic trailer of sorts that acts as an epilogue of the game and sometimes can also act as a setup to the sequel. Unsurprisingly this will be the case with Square Enix’s upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3, but in a somewhat odd move, it appears that gamers will need an internet connection to watch it.
