Battlefield 1 Spring Update Out Now, Full Patch Notes Released

Battlefield 1's Spring Update, the next big free patch, is now available and brings with it the new Platoons feature.
Platoons are essentially Battlefield 1's version of clans. They allow you to form a group of players that have an emblem and tag to help distinguish them. Members can be assigned different ranks, each with different levels of control over the platoon. Players can join up to 10 platoons, each of which is limited to 100 members.
The functionality seems somewhat limited currently, but developer DICE describes this as “the first wave of Platoons features.” It also says it's “building a robust system that [it] can continue to expand and improve going forward.”
Elsewhere in the Spring Update is an incredibly welcome feature for Medics. Players can now use the Spot feature on a dead teammate to signal that they are on the way to revive them. This will hopefully cut down on the frustration of risking your life as a Medic to revive someone who ends up respawning j..

Xbox Boss Talks About A Netflix For Games, “Upping” First-Party Investment

Xbox boss Phil Spencer has shared new insight into the future of Microsoft's gaming business. As part of a broad-ranging interview with The Guardian, he touches on providing better support for things like the platform's first-party lineup, story-driven narrative games, and smaller developers interested in creating service-based games.
Spencer spoke about the success of the games-as-a-service model, where games like Destiny are supported over the long-term rather than being released as a title that's never updated or expanded. This in turn led to the subject of single-player, story-based games and how they don't necessarily lend themselves to that model, which could lead to a decline in how often we see them.
“I've looked at things like Netflix and HBO, where great content has been created because there's this subscription model. [Xbox first-party publishing GM] Shannon Loftis and I are thinking a lot about, well, could we put story-based games into the Xbo..

Perception will launch at the same time across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on May 30.

In Perception, you play as a blind woman, Cassie Thornton, who must make her way through a mansion in Massachusetts. The home is occupied by a supernatural force known as “the presence.” Your only physical tools are a walking stick and a smartphone, and also, critically, your ability to hear. Every tap of the walking stick or sound creates a visualization that illuminates the world around you.
“You don't have shotguns and magic powers and all that,” project lead Bill Gardner told GameSpot when Perception was announced back in 2015. Ga..
