Howdy all. We are preparing to roll out a pretty significant update to the site which we have been testing with a small group of users and moderators over the past several weeks. We'd now like to open up the beta to a more broad audience before the rollout. You must be level 25 or higher to access this beta.

First, to explain the changes. The main goal of this project was to combine all individual releases of a game, along with their DLCs and expansions, into a single product. This means that instead of spreading out content across each individual console release of a game, you can find everything in a single hub.

While working on this project, we decided to take the time to make some improvements to most individual sections of a game's hub. We primarily aimed to make each section more uniform in style so they don't feel like separate experiences (Answers is vastly different in appearance to the Forums, for example), but we also added in new functionality to some of them as well, especially with Guides. You'll also note that the Forums look much different in this redesign, but you can emulate the current look of them by using the cog icon on the topic list or message list so please don't panic.

You can find the new central landing page for the new GameFAQs experience here: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/game

On this landing page, you'll be able to curate lists of games that you care about, sort them, set up tracking for them on a single game basis or as a whole, and more. From here, feel free to navigate to different games and see how things look. Remember that the beta will only work if you enter a game from this new landing page. Regularly navigating to a game will lead you to the current site.

If you have any feedback for us, or find something broken, please feel free to message us. You can find the appropriate links here or in the beta landing page sidebar.
