Bethesda – one of the industry’s most prominent publishers and owners of one of the most successful gaming series like Doom, Fallout, Skyrim, has now acquired by Microsoft. Microsoft’s priciest purchase, accounting for $7.5 billion, has shocked the industry and raised questions regarding Bethesda’s role in Microsoft’s overall Xbox strategy. Xbox has stated that its franchises will be added to its Game Pass subscription package for consoles and PCs.

This acquisition by Microsoft will help make the upcoming Xbox Series X and Series S more attractive than the PlayStation 5 to many players, both consoles set to launch in November. Game Pass enables players with access to more than 200 games, and Microsoft includes first-party titles at launch to those who signed up to the ultimate package without further cost. In comparison, Sony requires its players to pay to £70 for its significant releases and does not include new titles in its PlayStation Plus Collection Services.

In a recent statement, Xbox Chief Phil Spencer stated that two firms share similar versions for creators and their games to reach more players in more ways. However, it is unclear how the takeover impacts Bethesda’s plans to create The Elder Scrolls 6, Starfield, and other unfinished games. The senior vice president at Bethesda, Pete Hynes, said, “the deal offers access to resources that will make us a better publisher and developer.” “He also wrote in a blog, “We’re still working on the same games as we were yesterday, made by the same studios we’ve worked with for years, and those games will be published by us.”

Sony has officially announced that the PlayStation 5 will be released on November 12th for $499.99, and the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition will cost $399.99.

“Selected Retailers” will be taking preorders for the console as of September 17th. The release date of November 12th applies to the US, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea. However, the rest of the world will be getting the new console on November 19th.  Sony said that China’s launch date is still under speculation and will be announced at a later date.

In comparison to PlayStation 4, which was launched at $399, it currently sells for $299. The PlayStation 4 pro initially sold for $399, a price it still sells apart from sales like Black Friday. Still, it’s unknown if Sony plans to drop the prices at some point or discontinue the previous models once the PlayStation 5 has launched.

Sony has adopted a similar strategy to that of Microsoft’s for the PlayStation 5. It will release both a regular version of the console and a Digital Edition that can only enable users to download and stream games.

They have also set the price for the PlayStation 5 in accordance with Microsoft’s next-gen consoles that are set to be released on November 10th and priced at entry-level Xbox Series S at $299.9 and the flagship Xbox Series X for $499.99.

Top 3 PUBG mobile alternatives to try after ban in India

India’s Ministry of Information and Technology has imposed a ban on 118 mobile apps including Tencent Holdings’ popular video game PUBG, exerting pressure on Chinese tech firms following a standoff with Beijing troops at Himalayan border.

The game has a cult following all over the world including the South Asian country. The ban which seems political in nature has deprived thousands of fans from the online game

We have compiled a list of three battle royales that all PUBG Mobile loyalists can try and maybe switch too while pursuing their Esport dreams.

Call Of Duty Mobile

Call Of Duty mobile is one of the most played games on mobile devices and recently surpassed PUBG Mobile in the total number of downloads. The game had one of the largest releases on a mobile platform. Activision keeps the game fresh by adding new content through a battle pass and seasonal updates. The game features the same mechanics as their pc and console counterparts. You’ve got tons of customizations like PUBG but with faster gameplay and the more interactive world around you. If you are a COD player you’ll feel at home.

Fortnite Mobile

One of the most popular games in this genre is none other than Fortnite. The game features original mechanics that differ from PUBG making encounters much trickier. The visuals are completely different from PUBG giving the game a more animated feel rather than having a real-life inspiration. Fornite performs much smoother than PUBG on mobile with fewer stutters and shutdowns. One of the big upsides of Fornite Mobile is that it shares platforms with its console and pc counterparts whereas PUBG mobile is a standalone game. You can play together with your friends on other platforms making the experience much more competitive and fun

Garena Free Fire

Free fire is one of the most popular games in this category with games running exceptionally well on low-end devices. The game also has a smaller file size than PUBG. Free Fire has great visuals but it can’t compete with PUBG which is made on Unreal Engine. Free Fire makes up for this by giving users better performance and easier controls. Free Fire has similar but much faster gameplay with lobby sizes of only 50 players compared to PUBG’s 50 resulting in matches that last around only 10 minutes. The game also has characters with unique abilities making character choices an integral part of the game. If you have a low-end device this game should be your top choice.

All three of these games introduce players to a unique experience while still sharing basic strategies with PUBG. They all have a solid Esports presence allowing rising players to show off their skills to the world. None of these games can replace PUBG but for most of it, they don’t have too. They provide players with a new experience while still being highly competitive. All these choices will be a breath of fresh air for long term PUBG players.
