Despite the fact that almost all of the April fools day gaming news was successfully exposed by the public, some still were so convincing that they began to reprint other online publication. In particular, the news that Creative Assembly is preparing Total War: Battle Royale, has led many major magazines, including Russian.
Stuffing edition PCGames reprinted many. Apparently all the fault of cleverly sotoserena a picture allegedly dedicated to this project. Even on the official forum of Total War had broached the subject, and in the official Twitter account of the franchise has also pointed to this article, they say, watch what they write about us. However, the story that we are preparing the new regime a hundred troops with the plunder of broken enemies that de will not spare our graphics card, still turned out to be a joke, albeit a very good one.
Those who reprinted the news, did not bother to check any official Facebook or Twiiter Studio, not to mention the site itself. Alas, that also happens.
The game industry barely survived the first of April is the international day of the fool, when everyone around me try to deceive each other in quite formal terms. And have even worked on it quite a major game publication.
For example, one of them said that Sony is expanding the platform, and will release before the end of 2019 Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War and Uncharted 4 on PC, and even led, supposedly, the words of the Executive Director of the company.
The audience also cheered by news that Half-Life 3 will be developed by Activision that PUBG will appear dark, horse, they’re Wrong, and that the PlayStation 5 will self-destruct mechanism that automatically burn the console after the release of PlayStation 6.
All this provoked the shouts of joy, groans of despair, the cries and curses. Many, of course, laughed, quickly guessing what is true and what is not, but that was not all. So, if you hear from a friend that next E3 will show Stalker 2, which will have the Predator and Battle Royale, you know that you are dealing with an intellectual victim of the first of April.
It is done what many of us have waited many months: devilish PUBG, having to put an absolute record, and stayed on the first line of the weekly charts of Steam, shifted in the first place.
As we expected, FarCry 5 was able to get ahead, announcing himself as loud as he could muster. As a result, the shooter also set a record, taking, in addition to first place, six positions: tenth, eighth, fifth, fourth and third. According to the rules of Steam, each version is considered separately. And because this game is full version including pre-order and season pass, then it happened as it happened. We note only that in the first place popped up the Standard edition.
As for the rest, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive settled on the ninth line.
Minecraft-branch to the ARK: Survival Evolved called PixARK, suddenly took seventh drain.
Grand Theft Auto V has settled in sixth place.
Well, PLAYERUNKNOWN”S BATTLEGROUNDS, as mentioned earlier, takes the silver in our weekly hit parade.
