Tetris 99

The free-to-play game Tetris 99 will soon be playable offline in single player, albeit at a monetary cost.

The previously online-only battle royale Tetris game launched earlier this year and Nintendo has announced the Big Block DLC. The DLC pack adds two offline game modes, called CPU Battle and Marathon. In CPU Battle, the player can face off against 98 CPU players. Marathon, on the other hand, sees players challenging themselves to clear as many lines as possible.

Players who do not have a Nintendo Switch Online membership can play Tetris 99 offline by purchasing the Big Block DLC. The DLC will cost USD$9.99 and more information, including a possible release date, will be revealed in the future.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

Published

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
