With less than 24 hours to go until the release of PGA TOUR 2K21, the hype is at its peak and the latest trailer for the online multiplayer certainly keeps the momentum with a star-studded cast. The trailer includes four celebrities in the comfort of their own homes going at each other with some trash talk over a few holes in the new PGA Tour 2K21.
The four celebrities included in the commercial are Professional Golfer Justin Thomas, WWE Star The Miz, Rapper Schoolboy Q, and the most infamous golf villain in history, Shooter McGavin from the hit film Happy Gilmore — portrayed by actor Chris McDonald. Interestingly enough, the commercial seems to portray Shooter as he would have naturally aged since the original release date of the movie. Nonetheless, this short cameo gives fans enough to enjoy.

It’s official: Activision has now confirmed the next title in the series of Call of Duty games will be Black Ops: Cold War. The news comes via an official teaser video with a full reveal being promised for next week.

Austin Richard Post, known professionally as rapper Post Malone, has enjoyed much success recently in the music world. It turns out, however, that the rapper has another alias in the gaming world where he goes by the gamertag PostMaloneSucks on Xbox Live. Although he’s only played one game of Warzone at the time present, it seems that his success transcends music as he currently boasts a 2.0 kill/death ratio for the game.
Season 6 of EA and Respawn’s Apex Legends may have a big surprise for Xbox One, PS4, and PC players, as a new map has seemingly leaked online. Per usual, most of the content that comes to the free-to-play battle royale game is revealed ahead of schedule via datamining leaks. The latest of these leaks seems to reveal a brand new map known as “Tropic Island” will soon be coming to the game soon. While some believe this name is too generic, and suspect it to be a temporary placeholder for the real name that is yet revealed, only time will tell if this is indeed the newest map to be joining the game’s previous two maps, King’s Canyon and World’s Edge.
After a short period that offered only the Buy Back mode for solo players, this week’s regular update for Call of Duty: Warzone brings back the standard solos mode. While the previous mode brought a refreshing break to the original mode with a stimulus mechanism that let players respawn after elimination if they had sufficient cash in the amount of $4,000, many fans are now eager to return to the previous.
Today, Oculus announced some important updates to how people log into Oculus devices, while still keeping their VR profile. Starting in October 2020, everyone using an Oculus device for the first time will need to log in with a Facebook account.
All existing users who already have an Oculus account will have the option to log in with Facebook and merge their Oculus and Facebook accounts. All existing users who choose not to merge their accounts will have the option to continue using their Oculus account for two years.
After January 1, 2023, support will end for all Oculus accounts. Those who choose not to merge their accounts at that time will be allowed to continue using their device, but full functionality will require a Facebook account.
According to Oculus — “Giving people a single way to log into Oculus—using their Facebook account and password— will make it easier to find, connect, and play with friends in VR.”

Following Fortnite developer Epic Games move last Thursday to break Apple’s policy by allowing players on iOS to directly purchase items in-game and bypass a 30% cut taken by Apple, the developer announced on Monday that it is seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent the tech giant from removing the game from its App Store.
Respawn Entertainment has finally unveiled the highly-anticipated Apex Legends Season 6 called Boosted. The new season is set to introduce a flurry of new content and changes into the popular battle royale and will kick off on Tuesday, August 18th at 1AM ET (August 17th at 10PM PT) along with a massive update that will also introduce some major changes to the game.
It looks like golf video games may finally be making their return to the heights they once knew. A genre once dominated by EA for more than two decades with triple-A games including the Tiger Woods series, the company decided to vacate the category following a luke warm reception to the 2015 release of Rory McIlroy PGA Tour. In their absence, HB Studios has slowly grown a new series known as a The Golf Club, with the latest game in series finally achieving a deal for officially licensed courses from the PGA Tour and accordingly reclaiming the series namesake.
A recent announcement from 2K claims that 15 PGA TOUR courses and 14 PGA Tournaments will be available when PGA TOUR 2K21 hits the market on August 21st. It will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and Windows.
The latest update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on Xbox One requires a whopping 66GB download, far larger than the required download sizes of its PlayStation 4 and PC counterparts.
The update, which applies several general fixes, including the removal of some maps from certain game modes, requires only a 1.2GB download on PlayStation 4 and 1.83GB download on PC. Infinity Ward blames “an unforeseen bug” with Microsoft’s patch delivery process for the excessive download size on Xbox One.
Infinity Ward assures Xbox One players that the 66GB download will not affect the overall install size of Modern Warfare or the free-to-play battle royale counterpart, Warzone, which will take up to 183GB and 99.5GB, respectively, after completing the update. This issue is a result of Xbox One players being required to re-download certain files, not add more files to their console’s hard drive.
