  1. Go to the PlayStation Store
  2. Head to the search bar
  3. Search for “Resident Evil Maiden”

You don’t actually take control of Ethan Winters – the protagonist of Resident Evil 7 & Resident Evil 8 – instead, you’re thrust into the body of the mystic Maiden.

There is no combat in the demo, but it’s still a creepy welcome into the horrifying world of the latest survival-horror experience. You’ll get to see the awe-inspiring visuals of the game and have to escape your surroundings by solving puzzles the old-fashioned Resident Evil way.

Despite a vicious ransomware attack on Capcom leaking major Resident Evil 8 spoilers, the showcase and social media reaction have proven that there is much excitement for the eighth installment.

Resident Evil 8 Village will release on May 7, 2021.

Master Chief’s longevity is in full force as Halo Infinite marks another generation that the legendary shooter franchise will appear in. There’s a lot of buzz about the game, so we’ve put together some crucial details including Halo Infinite’s release date, crossplay, gameplay, and more.

Halo, the iconic Sci-Fi drama that has achieved mainstream coverage, is gearing up for another iteration of tight gunplay with lots of aliens to slay.

Scheduled for a December 2020 release, Halo Infinite’s arrival had to be pushed back due to its development being disturbed by the world’s ongoing events. This slight hiccup has nearly passed, however, and we have some key details that you should know about the 2021 arrival of Halo Infinite.

Halo Infinite story

Gripping narratives are synonymous with Halo games. After keeping the appearances of Master Chief slightly more limited in Halo 5: Guardians, 343 Industries have taken this feedback on board and reverted to a more familiar status quo.

These are the key details regarding Halo Infinite’s story:

  • It will focus more on Master Chief who’s just woken from a deep sleep
  • It has been described as a “spiritual reboot” for the franchise
  • 343 are making the story less complicated than Halo 5: Guardians
  • The Banished will serve as the game’s primary antagonists

It’s clear that 343 Industries wants to keep Infinite’s story a bit more grounded and not require you to have played every Halo game to completely understand all the details.

Halo Infinite will have crossplay

A big question that people have had regarding Halo Infinite and its Xbox and PC integration is, will it have crossplay?

Thanks to a Tweet from Halo’s Community Manager at 343 Industries John Junyszek, we know that crossplay has been confirmed for Halo Infinite.

So if it’s the campaign or the multiplayer, or even the rumored battle royale mode, Xbox and PC players will be able to unite and enjoy Halo Infinite together.

Halo Infinite Multiplayer free-to-play

The Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase during E3 2021 confirmed that the Multiplayer portion of the next entry in the first-person shooter will be completely free-to-play for PC and Xbox players and will run at 120 FPS.

Here are some crucial gameplay tidbits for you to know about:

  • Master Chief has befriended a pilot that found him and can drive him around

  • The campaign has a 4-player online co-op
  • Local 2-player split-screen returns after being left out of Halo 5: Guardians

Halo Infinite Release Date

At the time of writing, Halo Infinite is confirmed by 343 Industries to be released in the second half of 2021.

However, in a recent interview with voice actor Verlon Griffin, we now have reason to believe the game will release sometime during November 2021. This information comes from an episode of the Fadam And Friends podcast, where Griffin accidentally spilled some information regarding the release of the game.

This is all the information we know about Halo Infinite so far and as more details slowly become public, we’ll make sure we update you.
