Another fantastic week in gaming has gone by, and whilst our small team here at 3Bit has been quieter than usual, the gaming news hasn’t stopped, albeit a bit quieter than usual as we await even more summer gaming events taking place this month. As always, we have everything you need to know from the last 7 days right here in our weekly catch up that encompasses everything from 3Bit and beyond from the last 7 days.

  • Grime has finally been released on PC via Steam. You can check out our review for this MUST PLAY indie masterpiece here on the 3Bit review page.

  • Over the weekend, we also got to check out the demo to Behind The Frame, which has left some very positive impressions on the 3Bit team.

  • Blizzard is undergoing a leadership change, effective immediately. J. Allen Brack is stepping down to be replaced by Jen Oneal and Mike Ybarra. You can check out all the details below!

  • PlayStation Indies has had its own staggered announcement event this week, which included announcements for Oxenfree 2, Axiom Verge 2 and many more. You can check out our highlights here in the 3Bit news section.

  • Coca Cola and State farm have dropped out of sponsoring the Overwatch League amid the ongoing Activision/Blizzard lawsuit.

  • Another ID@Xbox event will be taking place on August 10that 5pm BST.

  • We have some fresh details on the PSVR2, also know as NGVR (Next-Gen Virtual Reality), which includes details of the 2000x2040 HDR OLED displays for each eye, and that we will be getting launch information next year.

  • Guile and Cammy of Streetfighter have joined the Fortnite character Roster for a limited time.

  • Gamescom Opening Night Live will feature 2 hours of announcements. What are you hoping to see?

  • Speaking of Gamescom, it is likely, based on several rumours, that this event could house the reveal for the next series from 2K (heavily rumoured at being marvel Xcom).

  • Team Asobi (Astro’s Playroom) have confirmed they are working on a new project, and it shall be their biggest game to date.

With that, you are caught up with this quieter than usual week of gaming news. Be sure to stay with us here at 3Bit, however, as we have even more gaming news to come over August with lots of upcoming announcements, updates, and so much more. Be sure to stay with us as we continue to bring you even more gaming news from around the world, along with even more reviews, including this weekends latest double review feature for I’m On Observation Duty and part two of our great British Gaming series, which will be coming to the 3Bit news feed very soon!
