Sifu is releasing earlier than promised on PlayStation

Upcoming kung fu action game Sifu is now being released February 8, 2022, two weeks earlier than planned on PlayStation. The game was originally planned to launch in 2021.

Sifu - Updated Release Date | PS5, PS4

Sifu is a martial arts action game from developer Sloclap, the studio behind action game Absolver, that’s coming to PlayStation and PC. The game was originally supposed to hit consoles and PCs in late 2021, but was delayed to early 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sloclap says that Sifu is being pushed forward because progress is moving along well as the studio gets the game in shape to ship. Along with this release date update, PlayStation says it has two brand-new gameplay videos that show off more of the title and will be revealed today on PlayStation’s networks.

Seeing a video game’s release date get moved up is a nice change of pace, as 2021 has been abnormally packed with delays. There have been more than 30 major video game delays so far this year, and the number keeps rising.

While Sifu‘s new launch announcement focuses on the PS4, PS5, it will also be released on PCs via the Epic Games Store. Its updated release date is shared by the PC port with the Epic Games Store listing of the game showing it will hit the PC marketplace on February 8, 2022.

With its release date moved closer to the beginning of February, Sifu joins a packed month of games that will help kick off a busy 2022. Games like Elden RingHorizon Forbidden West, and the new Destiny 2: The Witch Queen expansion are dropping that month, which is great news for gamers — but bad news for their wallets.

Sifu launches February 8, 2022, on PS4, PS5, and on PCs through the Epic Games Store.

You need to get this oddball Zelda game for free before the 3DS eShop closes

The day of reckoning is fast approaching: The Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShop isclosing down on March 27. When that happens, you’ll no longer be able to make any digital purchases on those systems. Considering that several games on each platform only ever got digital releases, it’s creating a bit of a preservation nightmare. Hidden gems that never came to another platform, like Affordable Space Adventures, will be totally lost to time.

But it isn’t just obscure indies that are impacted by that change: One of Nintendo’s biggest franchises is about to lose a piece of its storied history. You’ve only got just over a week to grab a certain Legend of Zelda game before it disappears forever -- though it’s probably not one you’re expecting.

Diablo 4 beta rewards: how to earn all titles and cosmetics

Diablo 4's beta is an opportunity for fans of the loot-heavy role-playing game to sink some time into its dark and demonic world before the game launches on June 6. Though you can invest a good bit of time into seeing everything Blizzard has included in the beta, you won't be able to carry the progress you make into the full game, meaning everything you do is just for testing purposes – well, almost everything. By completing a few milestones during the beta, you can earn some neat rewards to use in the full release later this year. Here's how to get them all.
All Diablo 4 beta rewards and how to get them

There are three rewards you can obtain during Diablo 4's beta, including two titles and a unique (and extremely cute) cosmetic – all of which assumedly won't ever be earnable by any other means in the retail game. In other words, if you want anything Blizzard is offering during the beta period, you'll need to devote the time to get them now or risk never having another opportunity.

Skull and Bones: release date speculation, trailers, gameplay, and more

Ubisoft has a few notoriously troubled games in development that have left fans scratching their heads for years now. Aside from Beyond Good and Evil 2, the most curious game that has managed to avoid cancellation despite years of delays, restarts, and who knows what else behind the scenes is the pirate game Skull and Bones. It was first announced in 2017, and we've gotten almost nothing but bad news regarding this title in the years since. Despite having a playable build in 2018, for press only, the game has undergone major, if not complete overhauls.

Promised as a fully fleshed-out game built around the incredibly popular ship combat featured in Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, Skull and Bones was poised to make a big splash following that game's success. Gamers loved all the pirate activities seen in that game, so expanding on that should've been an easy move. However, public statements about the game have almost completely vanished, leaving many gamers high and dry regarding the status of this pirate epic. We pulled out our compass, plotted our course, and dug up all the details on Skull and Bones that you need to know.
