YouTube Launches Its Twitch-Killer Streaming Service Tomorrow

YouTube has announced that it will be bringing its game streaming service to the masses starting tomorrow. If you live in the United States or the UK, you’ll be able to give it a try.

YouTube’s service will support 60 frames-per-second streaming and automatic conversion of live-streams into archived, on-demand videos. Footage will be grouped by title, making it easy to navigate among a user’s shared content.

YouTube Gaming will also kick off with all of the content already available on the main service. That means all of the guides, humorous videos, and weird glitches you already watch will be available under the new banner.

The service was announced in June just before E3.

Our Take
This space is in desperate need of competition, and having a competitor will hopefully drive Twitch to improve its fidelity and infrastructure. Having two powerhouses means better services and innovation for end-users.

Report: Dragon Quest XI To Be Announced Tomorrow

Square Enix seems set to announced the next title in the long-running Dragon Quest series. A logo for Dragon Quest XI has appeared on the company’s website.

The image was uncovered by Gematsu, that also reports that a publisher presentation will also include Dragon Quest Heroes II. The event will also likely include a number of other titles in the franchise, including Monster Battle Scanner, Dragon Quest of the Stars, and Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King for 3DS.

While these are all announcements for the Japanese market, some might make their way to Western shores. We’re lagging behind on the Dragon Quest Heroes series, as the first one isn’t scheduled for arrival here until October 13.

We’ll keep an eye on the announcements and share any relevant information.

Our Take
With Square Enix moving almost the entire Dragon Quest library to iOS (and giving the franchise a new audience), the time is right for a new entry. The adorable slimes of Square Enix’s decades old franchise will likely look quite nice on current generation hardware.

Pokémon Creator’s Elephant-Themed Action Platformer Stampedes Onto Consoles Tomorrow

Pokémon creators Game Freak and Sega are set to unleash a commando elephant on the unsuspecting public.

This colorful, SNES style action platformer puts players in the role of a militarized pachyderm who joins a human war at the behest of his former colonel, whose hometown is being invaded. With the ability to stampede through anything in his path, crush foes with a powerful butt stomp, and fire water from his snout as a ranged attack, Tembo turns the tide of the war through 18 levels. Check out the launch trailer here:

You can also watch Kyle, Tim, and Reiner play the game on a recent Test Chamber. Tembo the Badass Elephant is available tomorrow on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC for $ 14.99.

Splatoon Gets A New, Free Game Mode Tomorrow Called Tower Control

Yes, Splatoon is getting even more free content tomorrow. We do have one question, though. Why didn’t Nintendo promote the game by talking about its plans to expand it for free a la The Witcher 3?

Regardless of the promotional strategy, things have been good for Splatoon fans. There have been a heap of new weapons, and tomorrow we get a completely new mode.

Tower Control is a race to control a moving edifice in the center of the map. As players climb aboard, it will move toward the opposing end of the map. Of course, being on the tower makes you a target, so your team will need to rally to assist.

This weekend also marks the first Splatfest in the Americas. Players are asked to choose an allegiance (this time its Cats versus Dogs), fight for their cause, and earn Super Sea Snails to level up gear. 

You can pick a side now and get a special t-shirt representing your choice. The side that wins the Splatfest will walk away with extra Super Sea Snails.

Tower Control opens up tomorrow, July 1, at 7 p.m. Pacific / 10 p.m. Eastern. The Splatfest runs all day July 4.

Correction: This story originally indicated the new mode arrives tonight, June 30. We've corrected the story to reflect the right date and apologize for the error.

Neverwinter: Rise Of Tiamat Expansion Hits Xbox One Tomorrow Morning

Earlier this year, Perfect World’s free-to-play Dungeons & Dragons MMO Neverwinter released on Xbox One. Those who started this fantastical adventure will have a lot more content to sink their teeth into tomorrow morning.

Along with new quests and heroic encounters, the Rise of Tiamat update includes an onscreen mini-map, performance upgrades, adjustments to queuing, and a 25-player battle with the five-headed draconic goddess Tiamat.

Our Take
Adam Biessener seemed to have fun when he played the original PC release of Neverwinter a few years ago, so this freebie doesn't seem like a bad deal. If you're bored and you have an Xbox One, this might be the solution for you.
