Various issues have seen player counts end up smaller than with previous installments, so it isn’t a giant surprise that DICE is having to peel away some of the excess. Since launch, the game’s Breakthrough mode saw up to 128 players duke it out on one map — but it was too overwhelming for some players, and PCs. However, it’s been announced that the 128-player option in Breakthrough is getting removed from Battlefield 2042. Of course, it’s just one concern addressed among many others. It was announced today that the 128-player Breakthrough mode will be no more once the 4.1 update goes live on May 19. Players will still be allowed to jump into the 64-player iteration, however, but that’s a pretty far cry from its larger sibling. EA specifies that the reason is because a 128-player match is a better fit for Conquest due to that mode’s larger map size.

Game crashes have been an issue for some, and there will always, always be bugs to squash. With that in mind, Rogue Legacy 2 got a massive patch earlier today, which improves several biomes, addresses said crashes, and balances a few classes. It does a whole lot more, so let’s dive in. Crashes seem to be a tricky thing to deal with for developer Cellar Door Games. The studio narrowed it down to a couple causes. Crashes can be tied to an Xbox Series controller lacking the proper firmware, which can be fixed with an update, or that the player’s GPU is overclocked or overheating. For the latter, the developer suggests setting a Limit Max GPS in the options. If your game is still crashing, Cellar Door mentions an OpenGL graphics API that can be found in Launch Options, in which you need to add this line (without quotations): ‘-force-glcore32’.   The patch b...]]> Rogue Legacy 2 released to rave reviews, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t more to improve.

These games took traditional fantasy elements and gave them a humorous, parodic touch. They starred a teenage boy who inadvertently stumbles into a magical realm where he assumes the role of a hero. The series received five main installments, as well as a few spinoffs, but it has not seen a new entry since 2009. Thankfully, that will no longer remain the case. A new installment in the form of Simon the Sorcerer Origins, which serves as a prequel to the original game, will make its way to PC on March 28, 2023. According to the Steam page, Simon the Sorcerer Origins takes place only a few weeks prior to the first game, and it attempts to explain how Simon arrived in the magical realm in the first place. The story sees Simon accidentally triggering “an absurd and ancient prophecy that will trigger a lot of trouble.” This leads to him embarking o...]]> If you grew up in the ’90s playing point-and-click adventure games, then you likely remember the Simon the Sorcerer series.
