This is your daily video game news recap for Thursday, February 8th.
Every Monday-Friday we give you a rundown of all the noteworthy industry news.
The PlayStation Blog announced that 3rd Eye Studios is releasing a brand new game to PS4. Downward Spiral: Horus Station is a sci-fi adventure game. The focal point is the atmospheric storytelling devices baked into the game.
Instead of traditional storytelling, Downward Spiral places players inside a the Horus Space Station in zero gravity. Players will navigate and interact with the station and explore the setting.
Downward Spiral: Horus Station is a game very much inspired by Black Mirror, Twin Peaks, and 2001: A Space Odyssey. 3rd Eye Studios will launch the game on PlayStation 4 and PSVR later in 2018.
As we get closer to the release of Rare’s Sea of Thieves, Xbox continues to reveal more of the exclusive accessory line. In 2017, we got a look at the purple/electric blue controller that would glow in the dark. Later down the road, it was reveal that a 2TB Hard Drive with the same design would be released.
Xbox now revealed the next component. Two new Xbox One controller stands. Both designed by Controller Gear, a new Controller Stand V2.0 will enable users the ability to charge the controllers. The charging stand will retail for $49.99USD. The original controller stand will also include the exclusive Sea of Thieves design, but retails at only $14.99USD.
Xbox also revealed that the Sea of Thieves Xbox One controller will include a special ‘Ferryman Clothing Set’, and a 14 day trial of both Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Bungie is bringing back the Crimson Days event to Destiny 2. Starting on February 13th, the seven day event will bring new cosmetic items and emotes for players to earn.
Crimson Days brings the two versus two Clash mode back to PvP. A revamped map fans will recognize – ‘The Burning Shrine’ will return as ‘The Burnout’ will be playable during the event.
Bungie has promised that the event will consist of a “Knock-out” list. Meaning, players will work towards completing milestones and not have to worry about acquiring duplicates throughout the process.
