About time.

Codemasters Regains WRC License After 18 Years
Article.

Codemasters has secured the official WRC (World Rally Championship) license as part of a new deal that runs through until 2027. This restores the license to Codemasters, who last made an official WRC licensed game in 2002.
As reported by GamesIndustry, Codemasters has signed the exclusive five-year deal that not only allows the company to develop and publish official WRC games, but also run associated esports tournaments.

The developer’s last game shipped as an official WRC product was 2002’s Colin McRae Rally 3. The license was then passed to Evolution Studios, who began the WRC series in 2001. The official license was picked up by developer Milestone in 2010, and then Kylotonn in 2015. Kyloton and publisher BigBen Interactive will maintain the license until 2023, when it will pass over to Codemasters.

With the WRC series, Codemasters will have two rally franchises in-house, as the developer currently has the Dirt series, itself the evolution of the once WRC-official Colin McRae Rally games. Codemasters plans to continue Dirt, and already has another entry planned ahead of the start of their tenure on WRC in 2023. This will also mark the company’s second major license; Codemasters currently develops the official F1 racing video games.

Here is a game I am looking forward to.

It is called "NEWCITY."  Think classic city building but in the 21st century.

Interesting little game... not really a simulation but it kind of falls into a city builder game.  It's really joy a "toy."  It's called Townscaper.

Surprise news today!  Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 will have VR support and is actually coming to steam, same day!  August 18, 2020!

Microsoft Flight Simulator will launch on Steam, after all


Microsoft Flight Simulator is coming to Steam on day one, Microsoft has confirmed, despite fears from some that the game would not be available on Valve’s platform.

The company had previously declined to commit to a Steam launch, but it now says the highly anticipated game will come to the platform on Microsoft Flight Simulator’s release date of August 18.

“In addition to availability on Windows 10 and Xbox Game Pass for PC (Xbox Game Pass for PC is currently in beta), Microsoft Flight Simulator will also be coming to Steam on August 18,” wrote the company’s head of Microsoft Flight Simulator, Jorg Neumann. “We are thrilled to announce that Steam pre-orders for the Standard, Deluxe, and Premium Deluxe editions of Microsoft Flight Simulator start today!”

In addition, Neumann confirmed that the game will support head tracking software at launch and that it will support VR headsets later in the year.

He said: “Listening to the community has been a priority for the development team since the announcement of Microsoft Flight Simulator in June 2019. Two of the most requested features we’ve been hearing about from the community are TrackIR and VR support. Today we are excited to announce that Microsoft Flight Simulator will have TrackIR support available on day one, and VR support will be available later this year in time for the launch of the HP Reverb G2!”

The confirmation of a Steam launch will come as welcome news to those loyal to Valve’s platform, particularly as Microsoft had previously said only that its “goal is to have Microsoft Flight Simulator available on as many platforms as possible”. It remains to be seen if it will come to other storefronts or consoles in the future.

In a separate interview with PCGamesN, meanwhile, Neumann has told us why now is the time for a Microsoft Flight Simulator reboot after so long out of the limelight. Alternatively, you might be interested in our in-depth preview, in which we explore the idea of Microsoft Flight Simulator as a simulation of Earth itself.

The game looks visually stunning.  I wonder how it holds up on lesser computers?

Tuesday release day. :D

It definitely looked weaker on a lesser computer, but you can still get a thrilling ride.  The game lowers the textures and draw distance.

The reviews embargo is lifted and reviews are rolling in.  I would recommend listening to people who love this series.  But in the meantime, this IGN reviewer did a good job since... well... he is was pilot. ;)

Microsoft Flight Simulator is getting much love.

Anyone buy it yet?  I am waiting for all the download delays to be over since everyone is trying to download it at the same time.

There is another new games trying to go after the Sims.  It appeared suddenly and not much is known about it.  It is supposed to be released for Mac and Pc. 

PEOPLE OF NEWBERY
Official Youtube

It is a Russian developer, so really nothing is known.  But a fellow Russian posted this on one of the Youtube pages.

"As a russian I looked into their page on VK and it looks like this "game" is made by one guy. The page has 24 subs that are probably his friends. Best case scenario - it's someone's passion project, not a real playable game. Worst case scenario - it's a scam. Sadly, all the thing promised to be in a game made by one guy suggest the latter."

Lets hope it is legit and not a scam or jank.

The developer plans to release it on Q3 2021 and will release it on the Epic Games store... which is a limiting choice.

^ Most of the people online are calling it a scam, which is unfortunate if that's true.  The internet has never been right before though...
