Bethsoft alleges Behaviour and WB ripped off Fallout Shelter in the new Westworld mobile game

A trio of companies known best to our audience for their MMOs are gearing up for a big court battle in the streets of Sweetwater.

Bethsoft is apparently suing Behaviour Interactive and Warner Bros. over alleged copyright theft in the brand-new Westworld mobile game. You’ll recall Behaviour from its development of MMO Eternal Crusade, and of course Bethsoft owns Fallout – it’s Fallout Shelter that Bethsoft believes was “ripped off” here.

Bethsoft says Behaviour and WB breached their contract, misappropriated trade secrets, infringed on copyrights, and unfairly competed with it in relation to the two games. Apparently, Behaviour developed Fallout Shelter for Bethsoft and stands accused of reusing its design, actual code (complete with identical bugs), and “substantially similar gameplay” for Westworld for Warner Bros., entirely without permission.

The Crew 2 jolts into open beta with the help of Red Bull as Steam reviews hit ‘mostly negative’

There’s the waving flag for The Crew 2’s open beta test, so get out on the track this weekend and take the multiplayer’s vehicles for a drive before it’s all over on June 25th!

The test is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One and is free to all players. You will need an Ubisoft account to access it, however. There’s a lot to be mastered with eight modes that include street races, powerboats, aerobatics, motocross, and touring cars. All beta testers will secure an exclusive gold helmet once the game launches on June 29th.

If all of that isn’t crazy enough, Ubisoft and Red Bull partnered up for a “Face Your Ride” challenge. Players can submit their craziest stunts during beta in the hopes of driving a real Red Bull racing vehicle. The energy drink company said that this is the first of several promotions planned with the game.

As you caffeinate up for beta testing, make sure to watch the preview videos down below, and maybe keep an eye on the reviews too: On Steam, they’re already in the “mostly negative” zone.

Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset added a new hour of music and 7,224 lines of dialogue

You might be finding yourself enchanted with Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset’s pretty visuals, but what about the delight that your ears are sampling?

ZeniMax gave props to its audio team that handled the music, voices, and sounds of the recent expansion, saying that its work was “designed to wholly immerse you in the home of the High Elves.” Zeroing in on Summerset’s magical ambience was of key importance for the group, with the music leaning on wind instruments to distinguish itself from the other releases.

And don’t forget the extensive dialogue! “We have 7,224 lines of unique dialog in Summerset,” says Voice-Over Supervisor Becky Ichnoski. “For this chapter specifically, we spent a total of 108 hours in the studios recording, making up 37 individual sessions with a total of 35 different voice actors.”

Monster Hunter World and Final Fantasy XIV prepare a crossover while the latter prepares for a patch

We still don’t yet know what rewards you’ll get in Final Fantasy XIV for hunting the great beast Rathalos, but we know that the huge wyvern and the Palico will both be putting in an appearance. We also don’t know what rewards you’ll get in Monster Hunter World for fighting and slaying the Behemoth, but you might have to chase a few Cactuars along the way. Yes, the crossover is happening sometime this summer, both versions have teaser sites and trailers just below. Group up and hunt some monsters!

You will also likely want to group up for Heaven-on-High in FFXIV once it releases with patch 4.35. The official site for patch 4.3 has been updated to reflect both Heaven-on-High and the continuation of the Hildibrand questline, so you can look forward to both of those inclusions on July 3rd. Which is probably before you’ll need a full group to take on a monster worth hunting, but you never know.

Blade and Soul crushes summer boredom with its Celestial Dawn patch

Aww, don’t be sad, weird little old man with long pierced bunny rabbit ears! I know you’re feeling left without purpose, now that you’re in the summer months, but may we suggest a little Blade and Soul to inject a spark of direction in your life?

You’ve got a fight against the Grand Celestial Emporer with the final addition to the Nightfall Sanctuary raid, the start of two bonus events, the new augment feature, and plenty of system changes. You’re going to want to read up on the patch notes for this, seriously.

EU’s Copyright Directive proposal has Second Life and Roblox players worried

A proposed law that’s making its way through the European Union’s legislative bodies has both players and studios worried that a wave of oppressive censorship might be on the way for video games (never mind other publishers, bloggers, and internet users!).

The law in question is called the Copyright Directive, which is being designed to protect (obviously) copyrights. The problem is that there are multiple provisions that are “vaguely worded and ripe for abuse,” including one that would make it a law to check everything uploaded online for possible copyright infringement.

Online games such as Second Life and Roblox that rely heavily on player-created and -uploaded material are at risk for possible censorship from an automated filter that will most likely not be up to the task.
