God Eater 3 will support dual audio when it releases in the west, Bandai Namco has confirmed.

FIFA 19 Still Tops UK Sales Charts
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey failed to dethrone FIFA 19 in the UK Sales Charts, as the sports game still sits in the number 1 spot. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey reportedly suffered a drop of 25% in physical sales as compared to Assassin’s Creed Origins. This is because more players are now purchasing digital versions of video games. FIFA 19 also suffered a drop in physical sales as compared to FIFA 18, but it’s still going strong judging by how Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and Forza Horizon 4 failed to take its number one spot.

Killing Too Much in Fallout 76 Will Have Consequences
Apparently killing too much in Fallout 76 will have consequences. Actually, players must have mutual conflict in order to have legal kills. If a player kills another player who is not interested in doing him harm, it is tagged as an illegal kill and he will be a wanted murderer.

The bounty will come out of the caps, if the player doesn’t have enough he will be debuffed.

Forza Horizon 4 is Now the Fastest-Ever Selling Game in the Series
In all of the Forza Horizon series, Forza Horizon 4 is by far the “fastest-selling game” ever. This newest racing sandbox game was able to reach the third place in the UK’s physical charts. It falls behind Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and FIFA 19. The main factor for the sales could be the game’s setting which is in the UK, having a different version of England and Scotland. Also, the setting had been developed by a British studio PlayGround Games making it so well received by the UK gamers.
You Need a Day One Patch to Play Black Ops 4’s Disc
Treyarch appears to be following Sledgehammer’s example of requiring a day one patch in order for players to play Call of Duty Black Ops 4. This method was proven effective to stopping early leaks, especially since retail copies were allowed to access single-player and Zombies mode ahead of the game’s official release. Players who own the digital version of the game won’t have any problems since the official version with the day one patch will unlock on the game’s regional release time.
Modding and Community Servers Will Come to Fallout 76, But Not Anytime Soon

Bethesda VP of marketing Pete Hines also added that they needed some time to make the private servers to support the mods that will be created. Fallout 76 is expected to launch on November 14.
