Another week in paradise, eh? As states begin to reopen despite the looming threat of Covid-19, and people blink at the unaccustomed sunlight as they see another living soul for the first time in months, I can't help but be reminded of how lucky I am to be part of such an open, welcoming community right here. I could stay in my house for another six months without ever feeling lonely, because I've got you guys. <3

Facebook is buying Giphy and integrating it with Instagram

Facebook is buying the popular GIF-making and sharing website Giphy for a reported price of $400 million, with plans to integrate the massive GIF library into Instagram and other Facebook apps. News of the deal was first reported by Axios, which revealed the $400 million value of the deal.

Giphy is one of the largest GIF sites on the internet, offering tools for creating, sharing, and remixing GIFs. Facebook has already relied on Giphy’s API for sourcing GIFs in its apps for years: Instagram, the main Facebook app, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp all already work with the service. According to Facebook, 50 percent of all of Giphy’s traffic comes from its apps, with half of that coming from Instagram alone.

Under its new ownership, Giphy will live on as part of the Instagram team, with the goal of making it even easier to send GIFs and stickers in Instagram stories and direct messages. For now, though, Facebook says that things will remain the same for Giphy users.

“People will still be able to upload GIFs; developers and API partners will continue to have the same access to Giphy’s APIs; and Giphy’s creative community will still be able to create great content,” Vishal Shah, Instagram’s VP of product, said in a blog post announcing the news.

Numerous services rely on Giphy’s API for supplying GIFs, including Twitter, Pinterest, Slack, Reddit, and more. While Facebook’s announcement would seem to indicate that those services will still be able to rely on Giphy as they currently do — at least for now — there may be some added tension with those services going forward given that several of them compete directly with Facebook.

The Waylanders story trailer dishes out a royal rebuke and some lore
The Waylanders is an upcoming adventure spanning two time periods set to the tune of Celtic folklore. It’s a party-based RPG, part of why it calls itself inspired by the likes of Baldur’s Gate and Dragon Age: Origins. Other similarities seem to be the focus on story, which we see the beginnings of in a new trailer.

“The first meeting between the Celts and their gods, the Tuatha de Danaan should have been a time of celebration and enlightenment,” says The Waylanders’ store page. “But, when the negotiations go catastrophically wrong, you find yourself near death—and untethered from time.” That appears to be what’s being set up in the trailer below as King Ith and his son Prince Lugaid disagree about how to handle first contact.

Lugaid isn’t the most diligent heir to the throne, according to his father. Ith questions whether his son is better suited to a life of ruling or a life of partying. The Waylanders’ description lets on that you’ll choose whether to support the brash young royal or a more pragmatic general.

As for the trailer itself, it’s a quick one that gives just a tiny bit of insight into both characters. The line “well I’m sick of privilege!” makes me think someone snickered while writing such an on the nose modern-ism. There’s certainly a place for silliness. Dragon Age fans are wont to say, “swooping is bad,” and other such bants after all.

I do hope that The Waylanders will be able to balance the cheeky jokes with some more vulnerable writing, since Gato Studio seem so keen on pointing to the pedigree of their writers. They claim former Telltale-er Emily Grace Buck as their lead writer, former BioWare-er Mike Laidlaw as a consultant, and Chris Avellone formerly of—well a lot of things—but you probably associate him with Fallout: New Vegas. It’s a crew I expect a lot from, and Gato aren’t shy about using their names to insinuate the quality of The Waylanders’ story.

The Waylanders is expected to release sometime in 2020, though a specific date hasn’t yet been announced. You can find it over on Steam in the meantime.

Fallout 76: Inside The Vault - Introducing The 2020 Roadmap & 76 Seasons
Welcome back to Inside the Vault! This week, we’re sharing our 2020 Roadmap for Fallout 76 to offer you an early look at what’s coming to the game during the rest of this year. We’ve also got lots of details for you on Seasons, which arrive this Summer with Season 1 and will revamp the current in-game Challenge system.

We released the Wastelanders update a few weeks ago, and it permanently changed the face of Appalachia as we know it. With that major set of improvements for the game behind us, we’re working full steam ahead on future content that we plan to add to Fallout 76 through the rest of 2020.

During the coming months, we have a lot of big improvements in store for the game that we can’t wait to share with you, including: A major rebalancing of combat and rewards across Appalachia for Dwellers of all levels. We will have a complete overhaul for the current Challenge and reward system in the form of Seasons. We’ll implement new features, like Ally Dress Up, C.A.M.P. Shelters, and Legendary Perks. Kick off new events, like “Hunt for the Treasure Hunter” and “A Colossal Problem,” but also revisit community favorites, like “Fasnacht Parade” and “Meat Week.” There will be plenty of new content to take on with repeatable Daily Ops and Expeditions, as well as a year-long story arc as the Brotherhood of Steel turns their attention back to Appalachia toward the end of this year.


Check out our full 2020 Roadmap for Fallout 76 below to catch a glimpse at everything that’s coming your way this year. You can also check out article on Fallout.com, which has a few additional details about some of the new content included in the Roadmap.

Steam Summer Sale dates 2020 leak: July Start time revealed for next big event
PC gamers are looking forward to the next Steam Sale taking place in 2020 – and with good reason!

Steam’s annual sales are usually a time for rejoicing, with plenty of great games on offer and plenty of opportunity for gamers to fill up their backlog and cram more games than they can handle into their library. The leak has been made public thanks to the driving force behind website SteamDB (via GamesRadar ), who claims game developers have revealed the dates we can expect to see the Steam Summer sale go live.

As per Pavel Djundik, the Steam Summer Sale start date is set for June 25 and the whole thing will run until July 9.
Typically, we see the sales start at about 6pm BST, and we tend not to hear anything official about the incoming sales until more or less as soon as they start.So whilst this is a pretty good source, don't set anything in concrete in your calendar until Steam itself gives us an update on when the sale will go live.

Terraria hits all-time highs on its ninth anniversary and final update
Nine years to the day after its release on Steam, Terraria has hit its all-time high player count with nearly 500,000 players at once. With what is now an all-time player peak of 489,886, Terraria is today's third most-played game on Steam behind storefront exclusives CS: GO and Dota 2. It's also currently Steam's top-selling game, which is pretty impressive for a game that has already sold 14 million copies on PC. and today's top selling game. The surge of interest in the game is due to its just-released Journey's End update bringing nine years of continuous game development to a close.

The Journey's End update has a massive changelog overhauling many of its aspects and adding scads of new stuff to do. There are some 800 new items, new enemies, new places to explore, new systems for NPC happiness, fast travel, and, uh, you can play golf to boot. It also signals the end of developer Re-Logic's active work on the game, and nothing is more emblematic of that than their integration of popular mod manager tModLoader as a widely available DLC. The keys to Terraria's future are semi-officially in the hands of the game's massive community now.
