First up on Casual Gaming News this week:
Sony Announces New Spider-Man, Star Wars Games for PS5
“Sony Group Corp. announced on Thursday a slate of new games for the PlayStation 5 console, including a sequel to 2018’s popular Spider-Man and a remake of the critically acclaimed Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
During a 40-minute event full of trailers for upcoming titles, Sony also teased a new game based on Wolverine from Burbank, California-based Insomniac Games, which is also making Spider-Man 2. Sony acquired Insomniac Games in 2019.
This event was an important milestone for the PlayStation 5, which has been flying off the shelves but doesn’t yet have the type of robust lineup of software that fans expect. Sony has marketed the console as the only place to play exclusive games such as the new God of War, which was also showcased at the event, but many of those games were delayed to 2022. The new God of War will also be released on PlayStation 4.”
Sony has come through with exactly what we want yet again!

The First Teaser for PUBG Mobile Version 1.6 Has Been Released
“Tencent has released the first teaser for PUBG Mobile version 1.6, which is set to premiere later this month. The update will bring a fresh new look for the game with an even more realistic map than before. The teaser also shows off some of PUBG’s new features, including the ability to commandeer vehicles, customizable character accessories, and player-vs-player mode. It’s set to be out on PC through Epic Games’ launcher on March 6th, but it’ll take longer for Sony’s consoles to get access.”
