Although Riders Republic was originally scheduled for a 25th February release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One (with Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 optimisations promised), Ubisoft has now made the decision to shift its launch to some time "later this year".

There's no further indication of why a delay was deemed necessary or when Ubisoft might be hoping to get Riders Republic out into the wild, but more information will undoubtedly arrive in due course.Read More..

Rory Macqueen, from the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, said the November figures confirm a significant slowdown in the last quarter of 2020, "despite November's lockdown in England clearly having a far smaller effect than the first".
James Smith, research director of the Resolution Foundation, said there would be a lot of comment about whether these figures point to the UK heading for only its second-ever double-dip recession on record.
But, he said, the real "story of the year will be a vaccine-driven bounce back in economic activity for sectors like hospitality and leisure".Read More..
Using her powers, Wanda has (probably) reshaped reality to create a better world for herself, but unfortunately for Westview, it looks like the entire town has been sucked into her delusion too.
If so, then that ghostly voice on the other end of that radio transmission likely belongs to a SWORD agent trying to break through and help Wanda, not realising that she's the one who started this whole mess.

Drunk Tank Pink is the sound of Shame staring down that void and expelling their angst.
“Born in Luton” illustrates their newly multiplanar sound, kicking off with several splintered guitar passages that scratch against one another—a nod to Afropop’s rhythmic style, or perhaps new wave’s appropriation of it.
Shame let their influences mingle here; the verses are propulsive and skittering, but the chorus stretches into a slow and heavy dirge.Read More..

A couple of days ago, Respawn Entertainment surprised us by releasing a next-gen patch for its impressive Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, bringing with it specific upgrades that tap into more of the horsepower provided by the trio of new consoles.
It's not a full next-gen patch as such - similar to Cyberpunk 2077, it's simply tweaking last-gen code in order to get higher frame-rates from the new machines, leveraging the CPU in particular to give us a much closer lock to 60 frames per second.
The patch is also interesting in that Respawn Entertainment released patch notes that tell us almost everything we need to know about the technical enhancements.Read More..

As temperatures rise, the Southern Ocean will likely become too warm for Antarctic icebergs to travel far enough to trigger the changes in ocean circulation required for an ice age to develop.
Professor Hall said the study could help us understand how icebergs’ movements – or lack of movement – could inform future climate patterns.
“As we observe an increase in the mass loss from the Antarctic continent and iceberg activity in the Southern Ocean resulting from warming associated with current human greenhouse-gas emissions, our study emphasises the importance of understanding iceberg trajectories and melt patterns in developing the most robust predictions of their future impact on ocean circulation and climate,” he said.Read More..

Small firms are cheering a Supreme Court ruling that appears set to force insurers to pay out on disputed coronavirus business interruption claims worth at least £1.2bn.
Judges were asked to set the parameters for valid claims from various policies following a test case brought by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) with the support of eight insurance companies last summer.
The High Court judgment, handed down in September, was widely seen as supportive for the bulk of the estimated 370,000 companies said to be affected by the dispute but prompted appeals by both sides.Read More..
