The Best Open Worlds in Video Games

Video Games offer their players boundless escapism, and while that’s sometimes in the form of a really compelling linear story, there’s a special place in our hearts for a big open world you can easily get lost in. To that end, we’ve put together a list of our favorite open worlds in gaming. It’s worth noting that this isn’t a list of IGN’s Best Open-World Games™, but rather our favorite worlds in and of themselves - whether they’re made up of miles of untamed wilderness,...

Destiny 2: Has a Huge PVP Population, but Matchmaking Needs Modernization

Over the July 4th weekend, Destiny 2 had a massive number of active players in its PVP modes, specifically Iron Banner. Even on the last day of the event, 15% of everybody playing were in Iron Banner, and on July 1st, 728k of the total 1.18 million players were enjoying PVP.  That's twice the amount of people playing Strikes, Nightfall, Raids, or Gambit. For comparison, if we look back at July of 2019, the PVP population was 289k, less than half of what it is today.

Cheetah Explained: Who Is the Wonder Woman 1984 Villain?

Wonder Woman 1984 will see the return of Gal Gadot's super-heroine, and joining her will be Kristen Wiig as Barbara Ann Minerva, aka Cheetah, one of Wonder Woman's oldest and most nefarious foes. As of now, it remains unclear exactly how Wiig's character will become Cheetah in the film, or even if she will be the main villain in the film, given that Pedro Pascal is also co-starring as DC Comics bad guy Maxwell Lord. Now that we've gotten our first look at Wiig in her full Cheetah costume,...

Phil Spencer Says Xbox Series X Games Aren't Being Held Back By Xbox One

Phil Spencer has played down the idea that Xbox Series X games will be held back from their full potential by having to be playable on Xbox One, pointing to the success of PC games at working across wide ranges of hardware power as evidence. Speaking to GamesIndustry, the Xbox boss called the idea of games being held back "a meme that gets created by people who are too caught up in device competition." Instead, Spencer points to the PC market, where games that are regularly touted as the...
