Ubisoft has unveiled For Honor‘s PC system requirements, giving prospective players advance notice of the hardware horsepower required to run the game’s frantic 3-on-3 melee battles.

A hardware upgrade may be in the cards for some players, as For Honor requires an Intel Core i3-550 or AMD Phenom II X4 955 processor or equivalent to run at minimum settings. Advanced graphics cards and a surplus of RAM are also recommended in order to achieve the best possible experience.

For Honor is a team-based multiplayer combat game that features a series of hack-and-slash battles between vikings, samurai, and medieval knights. In addition to a single-player campaign, For Honor also includes an online multiplayer mode that allows teams of three players to match their steel against one another on the battlefield.

Ubisoft also recommends an NVIDIA GeForce (GTX660/GTX750ti/GTX950/GTX1050) or AMD Radeon (HD6970/HD7870/R9 270/R9 370/RX460) graphics card with at least 2 GB of VRAM. A setup that meets these requirements and has at least 4 GB of system RAM should be able to run For Honor at 30 frames per second at 720p.

In order to achieve 60 frames-per-second at 1080p, Ubisoft recommends the equivalent of an Intel Core i5-2500K or AMD FX-6350 processor. Players will also need a slightly more capable video card within the NVIDIA GeForce (GTX680/GTX760/GTX970/GTX1060) or AMD Radeon (R9 280X/R9 380/RX470) families, along with 8 GB of system RAM.

Development of For Honor was scaled back significantly in the months prior to launch, leading to the abandonment of its promised split-screen co-op mode. Local co-op is no longer an option, and For Honor now requires players to connect to Ubisoft’s servers for online-only action. Players will also need to maintain a constant connection with Ubisoft’s servers for the game’s single-player component, despite initial promises.

For Honor launches for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms on February 14.

The Sims 5: release date speculation, trailers, gameplay, and more
sims 4 for rent expansion pack shared living the 6

It's time to brush up on your Simlish if it's rusty because the long-awaited The Sims 5, aka Project Rene, is officially on the way. This has been the longest gap between main entries since the series began, and while we did get tons of expansions for The Sims 4 to hold us over, plus the change to it becoming free to play, we're more than ready for a new entry. Each time a new game in the franchise comes out, die-hard fans always need to have a bit of skepticism about what features will be there -- both new and returning. Again, the last entry eventually got to a great spot, but it certainly wasn't there at launch. We can't answer all your questions yet, but here's everything we know about The Sims 5.
Release date speculation

Still referred to by the code name Project Rene, The Sims 5 (which we will call it until the official title is revealed) does not have a release window as of now. Developer Maxis did state it was working on it in October 2022 at the Behind the Sims Summit presentation. The only clue we got there was this statement from Lyndsay Pearson, franchise creative vice president: "Over the next couple of years, we'll continue sharing updates with all of you on Project Rene."

GTA 5 cheats: codes and phone numbers PS4, PS5, Xbox, and PC
The main characters of Grand Theft Auto V stand side-by-side.

A slam-dunk of a game for the talented developers at Rockstar, Grand Theft Auto V has been out for several years now, but it’s still an extremely popular title. We’re also guessing there’s some renewed interest in the game because the world knows we’re getting a Grand Theft Auto VI in the somewhat-near future. If you’ve ever played a GTA game, you’ll know the going can get a little tough from time to time. This is why it’s nice to live in a world with cheat codes. 

Whether you just want to have a ton of fun with unlimited health and ammunition, or you’re seriously struggling with a certain section of the game, we’ve rounded up all the cheat codes you’ll need to know for GTA V, for platforms including PS4, PS5, Xbox, and PC.
How to use GTA 5 cheats
There are a few ways to enter GTA 5 cheat codes. The first and easiest is to use your cellphone. You can open your cellphone by pressing Up on the D-pad. From there, enter the corresponding number, and the cheat will fire. You can also classically input cheats by following a specific button combination. The combinations are the same across PlayStation and Xbox, but we've split them up to account for their different button-naming conventions, so it should feel more natural reading and entering them.

How to fix ‘servers at capacity’ error in Helldivers 2
A Helldivers 2 player fires a laser canon.

Helldivers 2 is a ton of fun to play, but the game isn’t without its small list of issues. One of these maladies is an error code that reads “servers at capacity.” If you’ve ever seen this pop-up window, you’ll know just how frustrating it can be to get around. But as far as fixes go, there's not much one can do when it comes to getting around this roadblock.
Can you fix the servers at capacity error?

Unfortunately, this is one error in Helldivers 2 that you have no power over. This issue falls on the game being just too popular for the game's servers to keep up with. A statement posted by developer Arrowhead in its official Discord said: "Our team is working around the clock to solve these issues. While we've been able to mitigate some of the causes, we are still struggling to keep up with the scaling that is needed to accommodate all our Helldivers. Therefore, we’ve had to cap our concurrent players to around 450,000 to further improve server stability. We will continue to work with our partners to get the ceiling raised.”
