  1. During a livestream for a PAX South panel, publisher NIS America announced that it is bringing the third entry in the cult-hit Japanese RPG series Trails Of Cold Steel to PC. Fully titled, The Legend Of Heroes: Trails Of Cold Steel III, it originally released on PS4 in September 2017 for Japan and October 2019 in the West, and a Switch version is due later this year. However, those who are looking to continue the Cold Steel saga on PC can do so on March 23, 2020. Cold Steel III continues the story of main character Rean Schwarzer and friends from Class VII navigating tense political drama and the terrors of war as they grow into young adults and take on new roles in life. The series incorporates story elements from the Trails In The Sky series (and other Japan-only entries) as all these games take place in the same universe. When it comes to this version in particular, Cold Steel III gets the enhancements that came with the previous two games on PC. This includes native 4K support, ultrawide 21:9 support, an uncapped framerate, and a bunch of graphics options. Another important inclusion is turbo mode, which lets you fast forward 2x, 4x, or 6x the game's speed at any point. For more on the series, be sure to read our in-depth interview with developer Falcom's president Toshihiro Kondo about Trails Of Cold Steel and how it fits into the larger RPG landscape. If you're looking to take the game on the go later this year, you can check out our Cold Steel III gameplay on Nintendo Switch. Trails Of Cold Steel IV closes out the series, and while it's been out in Japan since 2018, there's currently no word on a Western release. View the full article
  2. Ubisoft has announced it plans to change-up the structure of its editorial team--the group of individuals largely responsible for the design and story direction for all of the company's games. By changing how the group is organized, Ubisoft hopes to better differentiate its games from one another. "We are reinforcing our editorial team to be more agile and better accompany our development teams around the world as they create the best gaming experiences for players," Ubisoft said, according to VGC. For context, in the past, the 100-or-so group of designers and producers that comprised the editorial team were the leading influence behind the similar design in Ubisoft games: open-world with lots of side quests, multiplayer or online in-game elements, and storylines themed around real-world issues, according to VGC's report. "In the previous system that editorial had, there were often the ideas of just one or two people getting put into every game," an anonymous source told VGC. "That's why you tended to see such similarity, because it's the same taste and opinion being replicated." Granted, these design philosophies have been the basis for some of Ubisoft's recent successes, such as Watch Dogs 2 and Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. However, as 2019 made abundantly clear, using a design that's worked before for all of your franchises does not mean they'll all be successful. Ubisoft reported disappointing sales numbers for both The Division 2 and Ghost Recon Breakpoint--later implying one of Breakpoint's most significant flaws was that it was too similar to The Division 2. "While many of our titles are strongly differentiated, we need to ensure this is the case for all of them," Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said in a conference call. Following the reveal of the disappointing sales numbers, Ubisoft announced that it would be delaying Watch Dogs: Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Gods & Monsters so as to ensure that they all launch with the right amount of polish and are distinct--both from each other and what came before them. Under the new set-up, Ubisoft chief creative officer Serge Hascoet will no longer solely lead editorial. Instead, he will simply oversee the group while seven vice presidents each lead individual teams within editorial that are devoted to one franchise. Under this new system, Ubisoft is hoping that all of its franchises will evolve in different ways, creating a more distinct feel for each. View the full article
  3. Warner Bros is turning developer NetherRealm's long-running, infamously gruesome fighting series Mortal Kombat into an animated movie, and it's set to arrive in the first half of this year. That's according to the Hollywood Reporter, which writes that Warner Bros' upcoming animated effort will be titled Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge, and will, as you might well imagine, reunite some of the series' most popular characters. Joel McHale, perhaps best known as Community's Jeff Winger, will voice Johnny Cage, and Dexter's Jennifer Carpenter will lend her vocal talents to Sonya Blade. Read more View the full article

  5. Warner Bros. Animation via The Hollywood Reporter A live-action film is set to debut in 2021, but fans won't have to wait long to enjoy a cinematic adventure set in the brutal universe of Mortal Kombat. Warner Bros. Animation has announced Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge, an animated film following many of the series' most iconic characters. Scorpion's Revenge features a seasoned cast of voice actors and television stars, headlined by Community's Joel McHale as Johnny Cage and Dexter's Jennifer Carpenter as Sonya Blade. Light as a Feather's Jordan Rodrigues will reportedly step into the role of Liu Kang, while Patrick Seitz and Steve Blum reprise their roles as Scorpion and Sub-Zero respectively. Darin De Paul, who played J. Jonah Jameson in Insomniac's Spider-Man, as well as Reinhardt in Overwatch, takes over the role of Quan Chi. Other actors include Robert Atkin Downes as Kano, David B. Mitchell as Raiden, Ike Amadi as Jax, and Grey Griffin as Kitana. Additionally, Kevin Michael Richardson, who provided the booming voice of Goro in the 1995 live-action film, will return to that role for Scorpion's Revenge. Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon is also working with the team as a creative consultant. Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge is scheduled to release in the first half of this year.

  6. Rumours that Valve is currently working on a new Left 4 Dead game have been gathering momentum of late. Don't get your hopes up though; the company has now stepped forward to categorically state that it's "absolutely not" doing any such thing. Whispers of a new Left 4 Dead title have been heard from several sources in recent times. Back in December, Valve News Network's well-connected Tyler McVicker told Twitter followers that "Left 4 Dead VR is real", while, earlier today, Chinese HTC president Alvin Wang Graylin sharing slides from a recent VR presentation making mention of Left 4 Dead 3. Following that revelation, Valve has finally spoken up, presumably in an attempt to prevent fans from frothing themselves into an irreversible frenzy. In a statement provided to IGN said that it's "absolutely not working on anything L4D related now, and haven't for years." Read more View the full article
  7. It's clearly delay season. Following Square Enix dropping the news of delays of its two biggest titles on the immediate horizon in Final Fantasy VII Remake and Avengers earlier this week, CD Projekt Red yesterday announced the delay of perhaps the most anticipated game of the year with Cyberpunk 2077. Now, developer Camouflaj has announced it is delaying Iron Man VR, the PlayStation VR-exclusive title that puts you in the heroic armor of Tony Stark. In a tweet from the official Camouflaj Twitter account, the studio says the delay from February 28 to May 15 will allow the team to, "deliver on [its] vision and meet the high expectations of [its] amazing community." You can see the full tweet below. https://twitter.com/Camouflaj/status/1218171126875951106 Iron Man VR now releases on May 15, the date previously occupied by the now-delayed Avengers title from Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal. To learn more about Iron Man VR, check out our hands-on with the title here. [Source: Camouflaj on Twitter] View the full article
  8. The Xbox One's Elite Series 2 controller is one of my favourite pads and a huge improvement over the first Elite controller. It is quite an expensive piece of gaming tech, though, which makes it a bit of a hard sell for most gamers. However, if you're subscribed to Amazon Prime, you can snag yourself an Xbox Elite Series 2 controller with a $20 discount. The great thing about the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller is that it works with PC as well as Xbox One, and Microsoft has confirmed it will also be compatible with Xbox Series X when that console launches later this year. Xbox Elite Series 2 controller | $160 ($180) See at Amazon Some of the improvements from the first Elite controller include adjustable analog-stick tension, a third trigger stop, and two more customizable control presets, in addition to Bluetooth connectivity and a rechargeable USB-C battery that lasts upwards of 40 hours. The controller's case even comes with a charging dock, giving you the ability to keep your controller covered and safe while it charges. If you want to take a closer look, check out our Xbox Elite Series 2 controller gallery, which shows the pad up close and goes into detail on its deluge of features. View the full article
  9. Fortnite has two new sets of challenges this week, each of which has one mission that asks you to search for a gnome that's hidden somewhere around the island. In the Rippley Vs. Sludge set, you'll need to search the hidden gnome found between Logjam Woodworks, a wooden shack, and a bucket tree. If you're having trouble tracking it down, here's where to find it. Where Is The Hidden Gnome Location? As the challenge clue states, the gnome you're looking for is hidden somewhere between three objects. Each of these is located in the swamp in the southwestern corner of the island, so that should narrow down the search area considerably. The easiest to find is Logjam Woodworks, the mill located in the western part of Weeping Woods. The wooden shack lies southwest of the mill, while the bucket tree--which is literally a small tree decorated with buckets--is southeast of the shack. That places the gnome inside a tree that's between the three areas. How To Complete The Challenge Now that we know where the gnome is hidden, all you need to do is make your way to that area and interact with the gnome when you spot it to complete the challenge. Keep in mind, however, that the gnome won't appear on the map until you've unlocked this mission, so you'll first need to clear a few of the other Rippley Vs. Sludge challenges before you can find it. As previously mentioned, there are two new sets of Fortnite challenges this week. The other is called 8-Ball Vs. Scratch, and it has its own gnome-related mission. If you need help tracking down that one, be sure to check out our other hidden gnome guide. You can also find maps and tips for earlier challenges from this season in our complete Fortnite Chapter 2 challenges roundup. View the full article

  12. With Final Fantasy VII Remake delayed until April 10, you'll no longer have to speed through it in time to play Doom Eternal on March 20. Of course, you'll still have to balance the new Doom with Animal Crossing: New Horizons (the perfect duo of games), which releases the same day. You can, however, give your wallet some relief on March 20 if you're planning to play Doom Eternal on PC. Green Man Gaming is currently offering some nice deals on both the standard and Deluxe editions of Doom Eternal, both of which use Bethesda's Launcher. See Doom Eternal at GMG Both editions of the game are already 14% off, but using promo code DOOM20 at checkout will drop the price to $48 for the standard edition and $72 for the Deluxe edition. Overall, you're saving $12 on the standard edition and $18 on the Deluxe edition, which is probably the best discount you'll find on Doom Eternal prior to launch. Pre-ordering either edition of Doom Eternal nets you the Rip and Tear pack, which includes Doom 64, Doot Revenant skin, throwback shotgun skin, and a bonus campaign level dubbed Cultist Base. The deluxe edition comes with the Year One Pass, Demonic Slayer skin, and a classic weapons sound pack that changes the sound effects for each Doom Eternal weapon. The Year One Pass is the main draw here, as it grants access to the two campaign expansions that will release within a year of the base game. Doom Eternal isn't the only upcoming game discounted ahead of its 2020 release. If you're looking forward to Resident Evil 3, Green Man Gaming is currently selling pre-orders for the remake for $47.39. View the full article
  13. It's been a busy week in Destiny 2. While there was nothing scheduled for this week on the Season of Dawn content calendar, the Destiny community has been hard at work trying to solve a new secret quest located in the strange Corridors of Time. While you can unlock some lore and an emblem from the quest right now, we still don't know where it will eventually lead--but lots of speculation suggests it might result in a new Exotic weapon. In the meantime, there are easier Exotics to get, like Devil's Ruin. And since it's the weekend, Xur is back in town, ready to sell you a few Exotics from his ever-changing inventory. Here's where to find Xur and everything he's offering this week. Xur Location Xur is located on Nessus in Watcher's Grave this weekend. His Exotic weapon this week is The Colony grenade launcher. For Titans, he's selling the Mask of the Quiet One helmet; Warlocks can get Lunafaction Boots leg armor; and for Hunters, there's the Shinobu's Vow gauntlets. You can find Xur hanging out on Calus's barge. When you spawn in at Watcher's Grave, take your sparrow north and climb up onto the floating golden barge. Xur is waiting on the left edge. Xur Inventory If you don't have The Colony already, Xur's Exotic weapon this week is worthy of your attention, particularly as a tried-and-true Crucible weapon thanks to its seeking spider bots. Lunafaction Boots are also a great get for Warlocks, especially when paired with Well of Radiance in boss encounters. If Xur's wares aren't compelling, you can always roll the dice on the expensive Fated Engram he brings with him. This gives you a single Exotic from the limited pool of ones you haven't already earned, for the price of 97 Legendary Shards. If there's something you're missing from your collection and you want it sooner rather than later, it can be a good deal--starting with the Season of Dawn, all Exotic Engrams are Fated Engrams, but you'll have to level up your Season Pass or wait for a random drop to get some. Be sure to purchase it on the character who's missing the Exotic, and note that you can only get one per week, so choose wisely which of your characters makes the buy. If you're a PC or Xbox One player taking advantage of cross-save, you can now potentially get Wavesplitter from the Fated Engram as well, thanks to the fact that it's no longer exclusive to PS4. Xur Item Lineup (January 17-21) The Colony (Exotic grenade launcher) Mask of the Quiet One (Exotic Titan helmet) Lunafaction Boots (Exotic Warlock leg armor) Shinobu's Vow (Exotic Hunter gauntlets) The Colony You'll see The Colony a lot in PvP matches because it'll usually guarantee you a kill if you can find Heavy ammo. The grenade launcher doesn't just shoot explosive projectiles--it fires tiny spider robots that run around looking for targets. It's a great weapon particularly for the Crucible, where you can fire it in the vicinity of enemies and let the spiders do the work of locating people to blow up. Mask of the Quiet One (Titan) Titans don't have any abilities that can heal them in an emergency, but Mask of the Quiet One can help. The Exotic helmet gives you ability energy when you take damage, and if you're in critical condition, landing a kill will completely heal you. That makes it great in both PvE and PvP, and rewards you if you're an aggressive kind of player. Stats: Mobility: 6 Resilience: 8 Recovery: 10 Discipline: 6 Intellect: 6 Strength: 12 Total: 48 Lunafaction Boots (Warlock) There was a time when Warlocks were expected to take Lunafaction Boots into every battle, paired with the Well of Radiance Super. That's not really the case anymore, but the Exotic can still be extremely useful in tough fights. Wearing the boots causes your Rifts and Wells to increase reload speed for everyone standing in them, and makes the guns of you and your fireteam more effective over longer ranges when standing in an Empowering Rift. If you're trying to fight a raid boss and everyone needs to stand in a Well, Lunafaction Boots can be extremely helpful. Stats: Mobility: 6 Resilience: 13 Recovery: 7 Discipline: 6 Intellect: 6 Strength: 10 Total: 48 Shinobu's Vow (Hunter) Hunters get the simplest Exotic in Xur's bag this week. Shinobu's Vow has one particular use: it makes your Skip grenades more effective. Paired with an Armor 2.0 loadout that favors grenades, Shinobu's Vow can help make your grenades pretty deadly, but the use case is also a fairly specific one. Stats: Mobility: 11 Resilience: 7 Recovery: 6 Discipline: 16 Intellect: 2 Strength: 6 Total: 48 View the full article
  14. Horace, the ambitious story-driven 2D platformer that Eurogamer's Martin Robinson liked really rather a lot on its release last year, is currently free on the Epic Games Store, meaning you've yet another opportunity to expand your interminable gaming backlog. Developed by Paul Helman and Sean Scapelhorn, Horace casts players as the titular hero, a small robot "learning of life, the universe and Douglas Adams". Horace is, at least in part, a richly inventive platformer, offering up its own unique spin on the rather well-worn Metroidvania formula. But it's also very British love letter to video games as a whole, tipping its hat to host of classics through a slightly anarchic, and gently nostalgic array of sharply observed nods, winks, and playable pastiches.
