During its E3 press conference, Microsoft unveiled the future of Game Pass, including that the long-rumoured PC version will enter beta today.

As had previously been reported, the PC service is promised to feature more than 100 games by August, with Microsoft highlighting Paradox Interactive’s grand strategy game Imperator: Rome and Football Manager.

Other games set to arrive on the service include Metro Exodus, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, Prey, and Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Game Pass PC will be available as a standalone service or bundled into a Game Pass Ultimate subscription, which also includes the Xbox service and Xbox Live Gold. Normally, the subscription will be available for USD$14.99, though Microsoft is celebrating E3 with a $1 deal.

The publisher also used the opportunity to reveal a host of new ID@Xbox games that will launch on Game Pass day one with their retail releases. Among those titles are The Good Life, Ikenfell, Night Call, and Riverbond.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Will Show Unexplored Stories of Secondary Characters

Published

 on

The luminary creator of the Dragon Ball manga, Akira Toriyama, shared new information about the upcoming action RPG, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

Via the Bandai Namco Twitter account, Toriyama revealed that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will depict the backstories of several secondary protagonists. This means that the game will diverge from the story of the manga and give greater insight into Dragon Ball‘s many supporting characters. While a plethora of games depict the events of the Dragon Ball franchise, only a few of them meaningfully expand upon the story’s events, characters, and world.

Toriyama describes Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as a “fresh new take on the franchise.” Even though Toriyama rarely contributes to Dragon Ball games, he did create much of the lore in the now-defunct MMO Dragon Ball Online, which heavily influenced the story of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse games. While not much information is available about Kakarot and Toriyama’s involvement at this time, the title does have an early 2020 release date and a fishing mechanic.
