The Business Indise: Top-10 Gaming News of August Week-3

1. Apple Bullying Epic Store Continues, Says it shouldn’t go to court to fix problems

Apple-Jackass

Well, Apple always has been a big jackass of the smartphone or software market. No matter how you look at it, after the death of Steve Jobs, Apple has been acting like they own the business yard. Last week Epic Games sued Apple after Fortnite was removed from the iOS App Store, an action Apple took after Epic released an update that allowed Fortnite players to bypass Apple’s in-app purchasing system to buy V-Bucks. Apple didn’t stop at pulling Fortnite, though: It also informed Epic that as a result of its actions, all of Epic’s developer accounts and access to iOS and Mac development tools would be terminated on August 28. Yikes. Know More

2. Batman Court of Owls might be next Warner Bros Game

It’s been 6 years since the release of the last Batman game which was Arkham Knight. And now a new teaser posted by WB Games hints that the next game may be based on the Court of Owls storyline from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo as part of the publisher’s New 52 relaunch. The enigmatic Court of Owls is a new breed of adversaries that the Dark Knight faces. These characters are apparently as old as the Gotham itself. Know More

3. Crysis Remastered will be launching this September

After being delayed following negative feedback on its first gameplay showing, Crysis Remastered is now launching on PS4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store on September 18. It will retail for $30. Criticism was leveled at the project when it was shown off earlier this year, prompting Saber Interactive to revisit most versions (the Nintendo Switch port still launched on time) to further enhance the 2007 shooter. The result is a host of additional graphical features, including reworked lighting, 8K texture assets, and improvements to the CryEngine software-based ray tracing that will allow the feature to work on the Xbox One and PS4. Know More

4. Microsoft Flight Simulator has some amazing glitches, mountain-high obelisks, and BUGS

Microsoft Flight Simulator produces some stunning realism most of the time, but it’s the odd occasion where things go hilariously wrong. PC players inside simulated airplanes have been scouring the globe this week and have discovered some rather amusing glitches. The biggest discovery is a giant mountain-high obelisk in Melbourne, Australia. The unusually tall building doesn’t exist in real life, but Bing Maps thinks a giant obelisk dominates the skies of northern Melbourne. Microsoft Flight Simulator utilizes Microsoft’s Bing Maps technology — streaming data directly from two petabytes of storage in the cloud — so, it’s likely that this particular glitch is based on incorrect Bing Maps data. Know More
