The third major monthly update for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is arriving this Thursday, adding a bunch of new balance changes and the inclusion of two new death-dealing weapons.

The Escape from Tarkov closed beta will be kicking off in July, developer Battlestate Games has announced.

Anyway, now Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has teased exactly that, as well as the Guillemot family hoovering up additional Ubisoft shares in order to prevent a Vivendi takeover. [More]

Much has been of the Xbox One X’s 4K capabilities, along with its pseudo-cheating thanks to checkerboard rendering in the likes of Assassin’s Creed: Origins. One such game that won’t have trouble hitting 4K resolution is Respawn’s Titanfall 2, however, which will be receiving a patch to support Microsoft’s upcoming $499 console. [More]
