Final Fantasy XV was released back in 2016 and the good news for gamers who have blown through everything that the game has to offer so far, you'll be pleased to learn that Square Enix has confirmed that they have four more Episode DLCs in the works for the game that is expected to be released from now until 2019.
This means that assuming that the releases are spread evenly, gamers will have a steady stream of content to look forward for the next year or so. This was revealed during an interview with 4Gamer in which the game's director Hajime Tabata confirmed the DLCs. Note that this isn't the first time we are hearing about new Episode DLCs.
After 18 months on the market in the United States, the Buick Envision took its place as the third-best-selling vehicle among Buick's eight models, slotting in behind the Encore and Enclave. January sales this year jumped 13.7-percent year-over-year, just a few hundred behind the Enclave. Now, the Chinese-made compact SUV gets a modest makeover, but buyers of the 2019 Buick Envision will need to reach up into the upper trims to access the best of what's new.
The big mechanical upgrade comes with the option of GM's Hydra-Matic 9T50 nine-speed automatic instead of standard the six-speed. However, that appears to be limited to just two of the five available Envision trims: Premium I and Premium II. The base, Preferred, and Essence models stick with the six-speed only.
Blizzard is a prominent developer and has a huge and loyal fanbase, which is why you can imagine that platforms that support Blizzard's games will naturally also attract a lot of gamers. However if there is one platform that Blizzard has yet to launch on, it would be Nintendo's consoles in which no Blizzard game is available yet.
However that could change in 2019 because according to a tweet by Marcus Sellars (via Game Rant), a video games journalist and alleged "industry insider", Blizzard could be looking to port Diablo 3 onto the Switch come 2019. It seems that one of the areas of focus right now is on Local play, where apparently Blizzard is trying to take advantage of the Switch's local multiplayer feature.
In the past week, we've more or less seen the 2019 Toyota Supra sports car before its Geneva Motor Show debut. First, photos appeared in a Japanese car magazine purporting to be leaked images of the production car. That was followed by an up-close spy shot of a prototype on a car hauler that seemed to confirm what we saw in the leaked photos. Now we get even more shots of a lightly camouflaged Supra prototype that further verifies the spy shots, and gives us a solid look at the Supra's tail end.
From the front and sides, there aren't many new revelations. We can spot the little extra air inlets in the sides of the front bumper and leading into the rear fenders. We're also now able to see the vents in the tops of the front fenders. We sadly can't tell how tall the center grille is because of the front-mounted license plate. An interesting thing to note is that on the right side of the car, part of the grille has a smooth section, while on the opposite side it looks like plain grille mesh. This leads us to believe the smooth side hides some sort of sensors for adaptive cruise control and such.
We had a good long-look at the 2019 Subaru Ascent during the LA Auto Show and dug deep with 15 fast facts about the new three-row family SUV. It certainly looked competitive in person and today we have an even better idea of what it delivers on paper, as full pricing was announced today, joining a full set of specifications.
To the surprise of no one, we've fired up the old spreadsheet comparison generator to see how the all-new 2019 Ascent compares to the 2018 Honda Pilot and 2018 Toyota Highlander. Besides being two of last year's best-selling three-row SUVs, the Pilot and Highlander are also the closest in general concept to the new Ascent. They should also cater to similar buyers. There are of course numerous other worthy contenders, including the Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, Mazda CX-9 and the best-selling Ford Explorer, so if you want to see their specs, check out the Autoblog compare tool.
Pricing for the 2019 Subaru Ascent three-row crossover SUV has been announced. Including destination, the base trim carries an MSRP of $32,970. That's with standard eight-passenger seating, and like every Ascent, a 260-horsepower turbocharged 2.4-liter boxer-4, a CVT and all-wheel drive. As a refresher, here are 15 fast facts about the 2019 Ascent.
Standard equipment on the base Ascent includes 18-inch alloy wheels, tri-zone climate control, EyeSight accident avoidance tech, four USB ports, and Subaru's 6.5-inch Starlink touchscreen that brings with it Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
It's just been announced that we'll see the next-generation 2019 Nissan Altima late next month at the 2018 New York Auto Show. That would be the extent of the information provided by Nissan, so let's dig around a bit to see what we know about the future midsize sedan.
For starters, we've already seen a camouflaged test mule. It clearly had a deep grille reminiscent of the Maxima and other recent Nissans, along with thinner headlight units. What it did not have, however, is a shape that's terribly different from today's Altima. We're guessing it'll be pretty evolutionary, which if so, would stand in sharp contrast to the revolutionary Toyota Camry, Chevrolet Malibu and Honda Accord.
