Watch Dogs: Legion spec work is “utterly voluntary”, Ubisoft shrug and recommend

Ubisoft have defended their decision to source some of Watch Dogs: Legion‘s soundtrack through spec work, saying it’s “completely voluntary” for fans to create music hoping Ubi might pick it and pay them for their work. Ubi announced this “opportunity” last week, saying they will put ten fan-made tracks into the game. I suppose it is voluntary, as much as any other work is voluntary. My main objection isn’t even that Ubisoft are seeking spec work for their big-budget game, it’s that they’re using spec work as marketing to build brand engagement. They’re encouraging exploitative labour practices with a goal not much different to a competition offering Watch Dogs t-shirts as prizes for drawing cool hackers.

Netflix Showrunner Shows Off First Look at The Witcher Series Roach

Slowly, more details on Netflix’s The Witcher television series have been emerging. Most recently, the streaming service offered a better look at Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, while also showing off Yennefer and Ciri for the first time. Now it’s another character’s time in the spotlight. And who’s more important than the White Wolf’s noble steed, Roach? Absolutely no one. Thankfully, the first image of Roach has hit the web.

Hunt Showdown Trinity Mode Announced by Crytek

Crytek released a short teaser video for a new game mode coming to the first person, monster-slaying shooter, Hunt: Showdown. When it leaves early access on PCs on August 20, 2019, Trinity will appear alongside version 1.0. Multiple three-player teams will head out to hunt monsters while surviving against other real-life players competing for the same targets. We’ll have to wait and see if this means it could launch with the mode when it makes its way to the PlayStation 4 later in 2019.

Destiny 2’s scorching new farming spot may be AFK’d

With Destiny 2’s new Tribute Hall feature and the Bad Juju quest, even its most dedicated players are running low on critical materials. Planetary materials — which players use to upgrade gear and buy new loot — usually take some time in the trenches of Destiny 2 to earn.

Bungie: Shadowkeep will probably be ‘Rise of Iron Plus’-sized, however can’t develop infinitely

Last fall, Bungie released Forsaken for Destiny 2. It was a major expansion that revitalized the game. It added a new enemy sub-race, two new worlds, a new mode in Gambit, and nine new Super abilities for Guardians. In comparison, Destiny 2’s fall 2019 expansion, Shadowkeep, won’t have a new mode or Supers for players to experiment with. Instead, its focus is bringing back the Moon from the original Destiny.

The finest Xbox offers from Amazon Prime Day 2019

Microsoft sales are less of a hard find than other consoles — the company runs somewhat regular sales and it’s not too difficult to find a discounted Xbox One — but on Amazon Prime Day, pretty much all of the Xbox deals are on gaming headsets. We expect a few lightning deals on gaming accessories though, so keep an eye out for those.

Walmart, Target, eBay are all working huge gross sales of their very own on Amazon Prime Day
