Soul Calibur 6, announced in December at the Game Awards 2017, has been given a 2018 release date. Given this was the first time the game was seen we’d guess that an early 2018 release is out of the question. We’ll bring you more details on the Soul Calibur 6 release date as Bandai Namco homes in on a more specific date.
Soul Calibur 6 is built using the Unreal Engine 4 and can be seen in action in the brief reveal trailer just below. As you can see, it looks very much like Soul Calibur, but it’s hard to get much from such a short video clip.
It’s still early days with the Soul Calibur 6 reveals, so we currently don’t know many of the characters confirmed to be in the game. The characters shown off so far are listed for you below,
Sophitia Alexandra - Sophita has appeared in some form in all the Soul Calibur games as well as Soul Edge.
Mitsurugi - Mitsurugi is another Soul Calibur veteran, having appeared in all the games and Soul Edge.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has had one and only one map since it launched earlier this year. But it won't always be like that, since developer Bluehole is working on a couple of new maps for the game. We know the most about an upcoming desert locale, and it seems like players are not that far off from getting to play it.
Now, hardware manufacturer Nvidia has released five new images of the map that give an idea of what's in store. Compared to the current map, the desert location looks desolate, open, and more flat, filled with ruins and low-lying buildings.
There's still no word on when, exactly, the new map will arrive, but it'll likely be after PUBG officially launches on PC in late December. PUBG is also slated to be released on Xbox One in Early Access on December 12.
Some of the 1.0 update's main features, such as vaulting and climbing, are currently available for testing on PUBG's test server.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds developer Bluehole has a lot more up its sleeve than just battle royale games. The studio's latest project is a massive departure from PUBG in both tone and genre. Bluehole has combined elements of both steampunk and high fantasy to create a new MMORPG called Ascent: Infinite Realm.
Published by Kakao Games, Ascent: Infinite Realm (“AIR” for short) will feature "Realm vs. Realm" aerial and ground combat, which divides players into preset realms and allows them to go to battle with each other for control of in-game assets. This kind of combat, rooted in controlling more resources than the enemy, channels a similar competitive nature to PUBG, which is likely one of the things Bluehole is banking on.
