If you’re a fan of Alto’s Adventure or Alto’s Odyssey, we’ve got good news: Team Alto is releasing both games together as The Alto Collection on August 13. The bundle will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store on that date and sometime later for the Nintendo Switch.
Though Alto’s Adventure was originally released on Windows, Alto’s Odyssey wasn’t, and neither were ever available on gaming consoles. However, with the massive success of both games, Team Alto has decided to bring the games to a wider audience so everyone can enjoy its relaxing (though difficult to master) gameplay. The procedurally-generated games offer stunning visuals of landscapes you can explore by snowboarding or sandboarding while rescuing llamas, escaping foes, and successfully landing tricks.
The Alto Collection will run you $9.99 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Game Store. Even better, you can grab it free on the Epic Game store until August 20th. No details have been released as of yet regarding price or the date of availability on the Nintendo Switch’s eShop, or whether any changes have been made to either game for this special bundle.
So long Google Play Music, we barely knew you. Well, that’s not true—we’ve known you for almost nine years, and you’ve come pre-installed on about a billion Android phones. But you won’t be around much longer: Google is retiring Play Music in October, in favor of the shiny new YouTube Music.
Play Music had a promising start, offering an alternative to the iTunes store for MP3 purchases and giving users free storage to stream tens of thousands of their own songs from Google’s servers. Google eventually added a premium option and ad-supported streaming stations. But the writing has been on The Wall for Play Music for a while, as the digital music scene shifted towards all-in-one services like Spotify. YouTube Music is Google’s answer to this, and it’s already been urging its customers to move their existing libraries over.
The Play Store’s MP3 storefront will shutdown later this month, with no more sales accepted from users. Streaming purchased or uploaded music will end in September in New Zealand and South Africa (for some reason), with the rest of the world following in October.
Google will store customers’ music and playlists for a little longer, not deleting all data until December. Users will have until then to initiate a transfer to YouTube Music, where purchases, uploads, and playlists will be preserved.
On April 21, 2020, Microsoft officially made the switch on its office suite lineup from Office 365 to Microsoft 365. Most Office users will be immediately familiar with the software suite.
