Grime

  • The latest trailer has been released for the side-scroller Action-RPG Grime, a challenging title which puts you against foes using living weapons, that possess mutated forms and functions to destroy them with. The video gives an overview of the game’s combat mechanics, progression systems and how to transverse the world.
  • Grime has a challenging combat system which is all about timing, dodging and parrying at the right moments. Influenced by souls-like combat mechanics and Metroidvania world design. Grime is also as it’s name suggests, a dark, and bizarre fantasy world, full of strange looking creatures and mutations.
  • Players can use a humanoid black hole, which is capable of absorbing enemies it comes in contact with, gaining their powers in the process and enabling the player to use them as an attack, each enemy has a different effect.
  • This black hole is not only a unique combat mechanic, but also grants players with useful tools to help them transverse the alien like world.
  • Grime is expected to release some time in 2021 on PC via Steam.

  • These requirements do seem to point in the direction of a sequel, or maybe even more DLC. For now there is no confirmation from the developer, but hopefully we’ll be hearing more about any upcoming projects.
  • Ghost of Tsushima will be releasing on PS5 next month, which will add “frame rates up to 60FPS”, also having shorter loading times and you will be able to transfer your saves from PS4 to PS5.

Ghost of Tsushima Legends

  • The first raid for Ghost of Tsushima: Legends called The Tale of Iyo will be available this October 30th. This raid will require a pre-made team of four, meaning you won’t be able to use matchmaking, and will need to invite friends to form your group.
  • The Raid has three chapters and will require you to bring your A-game when it comes coordination and communication. Players will ideally need gear which is at least KI level 100 before taking on this challenge. In order to take part in the raid Sucker Punch recommends finishing all the Story missions first, and replaying the Story plus Survival modes on a higher difficulty to gain higher gear.
  • There is also more coming for Legends, weekly challenges have been announced which will put two-player story missions to the test. There will also be one four-player survival mission featured each week with custom modifiers.
  • Everyone who completes the missions as well as the bonus objectives will gain “max-level gear that will help you become raid ready.”

Genshin Impact

  • It’s been almost a month since the free-to-play online Action-RPG Genshin Impact exploded onto the gaming scene, offering a game packed full of cute characters and addictive gacha system. But if you thought the developer was anywhere near done with the game’s current state you’d be wrong.
  • Recently miHoyo released a couple of surveys which were doled out to players, asking about some feedback in terms of what could be done better. It seems they have listened to some of the concerns from players.
  • One of the major comments players have been very vocal about is the Original Resin system, currently players have a cap of 120 Original Resin, which regenerates slowly over time.
  • In the next update, Version 1.1. the cap will be increased from 120 to 160, a 40 resin increase. While this isn’t a huge increase, it’s good to know they are listening to the community.
  • Other improvements will include a filter system for Artifacts, and introducing a new item which will allow to set customisable Waypoints.
  • In other news, there will be a new event coming on October 27th, so far there’s little detail as to what it involves, but the developer teases rewards for participating.
  • Genshin Impact is currently available to play on PC, iOS, Android and Playstation 4. Don’t forget to drop by our Fextralife Twitch channel as we’ve been playing the game on the regular.
