On December 20, 2023, the JV editorial team will offer you a summary of all the latest news about video games and the video game industry in general. Here’s today’s recap!

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is on sale just two weeks after release!

French publisher Ubisoft released the video game opus Frontiers of Pandora almost two weeks ago to rekindle the excitement surrounding James Cameron’s “Avatar” film franchise. We don’t yet know the current sales status of this open-world title, praised for its immersive qualities, but Ubisoft has decided to boost it a few days before the end-of-year holidays. Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora was initially offered for 70 euros (or 70 dollars in the USA) and is already benefiting from a discount! In France the discount is certainly a little smaller, but from a number of resellers you can get it at a cheaper price for just under 50 euros. Something easier to be tempted by!

Players continue to be excited about the God of War: Ragnarök DLC

One of the interesting announcements of the Game Awards ceremony was the announcement and almost immediate availability of free additional content to conclude the crazy epic of Kratos and Atreus told in God of War: Ragnarök. Like an epilogue in the form of a roguelite in which you continue the battles (and discover some interesting hints about the universe and its future potential), Santa Monica offers content that we loved so much that we wouldn’t mind pulling out the bank card. Fans who have tried it since last week still can’t get enough of the qualities of this DLC. Even prominent journalist Jason Schreier was overwhelmed by this giftas can be seen from his message published on the social network X.

The teams behind Final Fantasy XVI have us boiling with anticipation for the second part of the DLC

Staying on the Game Awards theme, there was also another high-profile guest that caused a stir: Final Fantasy XVI. The latest hit from Square Enix’s famous license also had a DLC announcement, and like God of War, the release should happen soon… but in two phases. This additional content is divided into two parts and was addressed through Echoes of the Fallen. Finally, It turns out that this first part is intended primarily for fans But The Rising Tide, the second part of this additional content, expected next spring, everyone might agree. According to the developers, the challenge will be much tougher: it will be of a “completely different scale”, to the point that we will wonder “what impossible game we have before us”: that promises!

Players love the GTA 6 trailer soundtrack, but this one is even better!

Although Grand Theft Auto 6’s reveal came late this year, The Rockstar Games title will have left its mark in 2023. Between lovers who were already convinced of Rockstar’s next hit after 90 seconds and gamers who were a little disappointed by these first images, GTA 6 left no one indifferent. It has to be said that the developers did everything they could to support this revelation of the world, even if a tragic leak spoiled the party a bit, and accompanied the excerpts with particularly well-chosen music. However, the players were inventive and racked their brains to try to improve it… with a different song. We’ll let you confirm it for yourself, but rock group Bon Jovi’s Livin’ On a Prayer would have been a perfect alternative to Tom Petty’s Love Is A Long Road.

The actor from Max Payne 3 and the Remedy games (Control, Alan Wake II) has left us

However, while partying during the Game Awards ceremony, the atmosphere around the Remedy studio quickly turned dark due to some very tragic news. James McCaffrey, an essential voice and inseparable face of the Max Payne 3 and Remedy productions, especially Alex Casey in Alan Wake 2, passed away to the astonishment of everyone. Highlighting his remarkable talent and the actor’s lasting influence on the entire community of fans of Remedy productions, the Finnish studio took the opportunity in its press release on social networks to maintain its full support for the actor’s family.
