Another incredible week in the gaming world has come to a close, and here at 3Bit, we have had some fantastic stories come our way, along with even more announcements, the Ea Play Live event, some upsetting news from Activision and much more! Have you managed to keep up with all the gaming news from the last week? If not, be sure to check out all the headlines below in our weekly gaming cath up This Week In Gaming.


  • Whilst Skate was not at EA Play Live, we got an update from the team that they are "working on it" with a trailer featuring reactions and motion capture. You can check it out for yourself at the top of this page.


  • Ubisoft has announced its entry to the Free to Play Multiplayer shooter, Tom Clancey's Xdefiant, which will feature factions from across the Tom Clancey Universe.


  • Back 4 Blood on PC will feature DLSS Support, along with uncapped Framerate, Ultrawide/ multi-monitor support, and crossplay.


  • Deaths Door launched for Xbox Series X/S and PC this week. Have you taken the call to redeem your soul yet?

  • We got a more in-depth look at the story mode for Ghost of Tsushima's Iki Island expansion, which will be included as part of the Director's cut this August.


  • Pro Evolution Soccer will now be known as E Football and will be free to play! This new take on football by Konami will see regular updates instead of annual releases. We will have more details for this title in August


  • Dead Space is getting remastered for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5 and PC. No release date has been given yet, but we cannot wait!


  • The Cottage Living Expansion for Sims 4 is now available across all platforms.


  • This weeks indie spotlight includes the shapeshifting Coridden, the star-studded Twelve Minutes, The Viking adventure Song of Iron, The Welsh Nightmare Chasing Static and the twisted Saturnalia.


  • Activision Blizzard faces severe allegations around harassment and discrimination against women within the company and its "Frat Boy" attitudes. You can check out our views on this here on the 3Bit news page.

  • During EA Play Live, we also got to check out a new game mode for Battlefield 2042 called Battlefield Portal, giving us the opportunity to create our own game modes from a range of battlefield titles past and present.


  • Lost In Random was also shown off as the next upcoming EA Original. This quirky, Tim Burton esque adventure game will have you rolling the dice to rescue your sister. You can check out the trailer at the bottom of this page.


  • Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel has been revealed for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, Mobile and PC.


  • Skull and Bones, Ubisoft's Highly anticipated pirate title, has finally made it into alpha, 8 years into development after numerous reboots to the project.
