Pokemon Go will be unplayable for much of Monday, June 1. Developer Niantic has announced it is taking the game offline around the world that day while it performs extended server maintenance.
The maintenance period is expected to last for about seven hours, from 11 AM PT (2 PM ET) to 6 PM PT (9 PM ET). During that time, the game will be inaccessible, so you won’t be able to log in and play until the maintenance concludes.
Trainers, Pokémon GO will be experiencing global downtime for seven hours on Monday, June 1, 2020. From around 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. PDT, the game will be undergoing server maintenance and will be inaccessible to all Trainers. We apologize for any inconvenience that this might cause. pic.twitter.com/mdIeQiaCI5

In the meantime, Niantic has a few events lined up for Pokemon Go. The Legendary Pokemon Terrakion is back in Raids until May 26, after which point it will be replaced by another Gen 5 Legendary: the debuting Reshiram. On top of that, the Sinnoh Throwback Challenge line is currently underway, giving players more chances to catch Pokemon from the Sinnoh region, including Shiny Glameow.
Battlefield 5’s Last Content Update Is Out: Patch Notes And File Size
Battlefield V‘s last big content update–the Summer Update–is coming soon, and now developer DICE has shared more details about it. First and foremost, DICE said it will not publish promotional materials or trailers for the new update like it’s done in the past so as to not distract from the more important issues in the world today following the murder of George Floyd. [Update: The update is now live on on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and as DICE stated, it has been released without the usual fanfare you’d expect around such a launch.]
“We’re otherwise encouraging that we all take notice of what’s happening in the United States, as well as other places around the world, and ask how we can all do more, as we must do more,” DICE said in a blog post. “Racism should not exist in our society. We stand with all of our African-American / Black colleagues and partners, families and friends, and everyone around the world who is ready to see it end.”
DICE is owned by Electronic Arts, which has pledged more than $1 million to organizations including the Equal Justice Initiative and the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund, along with others to be announced. EA will also double-match employee donations.
New Xbox One Sale Discounts 300+ Games: Resident Evil 3, Sekiro, And More
Even though E3 is canceled, there are still massive game sales running that normally coincide with the annual gaming expo. PlayStation just kicked off its Days of Play sale, and now the Xbox Store is getting in on the fun with a huge sale on Xbox One games. More than 300 games are featured in the new digital game sale that runs through June 15, including Doom Eternal, Control, Resident Evil 3, and many more AAA hits.
The sale features plenty of standout games for great prices–first-party Xbox One titles included. Swashbuckling adventure game Sea of Thieves is 50% off at $20, while the great 2019 third-person shooter Gears 5 is down to $30. Racing fans can nab Forza Motorsport 7 for $30 and Forza Horizon 4 for $20. The wonderful platformer Ori and the Will of the Wisps is down to $24, which isn’t a huge discount, but it hasn’t been on sale since it launched in March. Its predecessor, Ori and the Blind Forest, is only $5, too.
For those looking for a challenge, several From Software games are discounted to excellent prices. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, GameSpot’s 2019 Game of the Year, is slashed to $39. Meanwhile, the Dark Souls franchise is on sale for cheap, with Dark Souls: Remastered down to $16 and Dark Souls 3 discounted to $15.
Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X Console Up For Purchase But Selling Out Fast
The next generation of consoles may be gearing up for release later this year, but Microsoft isn’t quite done with the Xbox One. In April, the company revealed a new limited-edition console based on The Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt Red’s upcoming action-RPG, Cyberpunk 2077. The game itself is slated for release on September 17, but if you want to get ready for it with a brand-new console, then you can snag the snazzy Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X console now. The limited-edition console went up for pre-order at midnight ET today, June 5, and while it’s already sold out at many retailers, you can still snag it for yourself at GameStop and Amazon. Its accompanying Cyberpunk 2077 controller is available to purchase separately along with several other Cyberpunk 2077-themed accessories: an Xbox Pro Charging Stand, a Seagate game drive, and a SteelSeries headset.
The Cyberpunk 2077 console bundle will be the final Xbox One X limited-edition console ever released, and only 45,000 units will be available in select markets, according to Major Nelson’s blog. The Xbox One X itself looks appropriately high-tech, and it even glows in the dark.
The Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X and its other accessories are available for purchase, and you can see the full collection of Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One products below. If you haven’t pre-ordered your copy of the game yet, be sure to take a peek at our Cyberpunk 2077 pre-order guide for details on the various editions and pre-order bonuses. The base game is available to pre-order on sale for $49.94 at Amazon right now.
