In the Sunday News Round-up for November 26, 2017, we look at the freemium clicker game that will have a full-price premium sequel with no microtransactions, why Square Enix “set Hitman free”, how PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will be changed for its Chinese release and why Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice has been a huge success for Ninja Theory. That, and some other stuff.
