Published

on

Monster Hunter World has rolled out a brand new patch which is highlighted by the unleashing of Deviljho unto the Monster Hunter World.

You can see the video below, but here are the patch notes for update 2.00

Added special assignment: “The Food Chain Dominator”.

  • Added a new monster: Deviljho! (Includes new Deviljho weapons, and the Vangis α and β armor sets.)
  • Added a new specialized tool: Dragonproof Mantle.

Note: Deviljho will invade 6★ quests, 7★ quests, and high rank expeditions once you have completed the investigation for the “??? Rathian” in the main story. After completing certain conditions, you will unlock the Deviljho special assignment.

Due to its enhanced metabolism, Deviljho must constantly seek out prey.
It is extremely violent, and known to flail large monsters around.

Microsoft’s Phil Spencer Aims To Have Xbox Game Pass On All Devices

Published

Microsoft has some lofty goals for Xbox Game Pass, and Phil Spencer is aiming for the moon when it comes to delivering Xbox Game Pass to more people.

Spencer said that Microsoft wants to bring Xbox Game Pass to “every device”, while speaking during the San Francisco’s Barclays conference last week.

Certainly, Microsoft’s Project xCloud will lay the foundation for doing just that, as it will go to public testing in 2019 and would be the logical bridge to Xbox Game Pass on mobile.

“We need to make sure that we’re world-class at free-to-play content, but we also look at subscription as a much lower barrier way for a customer to build a library of content,” Spencer elaborated (h/t VG247). “So we built Xbox Game Pass. It started on console, it will come to PC, and eventually it will come to every device.

“We use the flywheel that we have with customers on an Xbox to start the growth in Xbox Game Pass.
