  2. Activision has partnered with Numskull Designs to create an official merchandise line for the upcoming Spyro Reignited Trilogy. The line includes everything from standard merchandise, like clothing and keychains, to items as far-out as an incense burner. The full list of available merchandise includes a t-shirt, watch, bottle opener, mug, incense burner, hats, keychains, and more. The entire line is now available for preorder and will be released alongside the Spyro Reignited Trilogy on September 21. The line's most unique item, the Spyro the Dragon Incense Burner Figurine, is fully functional. An incense cone is placed in the figurine's base, which then causes the Spyro figure on top to exhale smoke through its nostrils. Continue reading… View the full article

  5. Bethesda Softworks is pressuring Sony to change its much-maligned ban on cross-play, but not for its tentpole holiday release. Eurogamer reports that The Elder Scrolls: Legends, not Fallout 76, is the game for which Bethesda most wants Sony to change its policy. While "it would be nice" to have cross-play on Fallout 76, said Bethesda Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications Pete Hines, it's "OK" if that's not possible. "But for Legends it's absolutely critical," Hines continued, "both cross-play, which is how Legends works right now on every device – you're playing against somebody who could be on any device – and, more importantly, cross-platform progression, which means no matter what you do on any platform, you load up the game and so long as you're logged in, here is all your progression, here is everything you had, everything you were doing."

  6. In an interview with VG247 at QuakeCon 2018, Arkane Lead Designer Ricardo Bare said that Dishonored is taking a break at the moment for any future releases. “I can’t say definitively what might happen down the road, anything could happen, but is resting for now,” Bare said. Arkane's latest, smaller game in the Dishonored series that released in Sept. 2017, Death of the Outsider, wrapped up the storyline that had begun five years prior. “The things that are important to us as a studio are coherent, deep world building and environmental storytelling – we’re always going to craft spaces that you feel like you’re visiting, whether it’s Dunwall or Talos 1," Bare said.

  7. Sometimes video games feel like call and response: One developer makes a great game, and another team (or two... or five) create their own based on that idea but with key additions or refinements — new mechanical twists, a change in scope, or a story that feels like a natural fit for the concept. In this way, Phantom Doctrine responds to the call from Firaxis’ XCOM franchise. Using the basic tactical RPG/management sim structure and workings of XCOM 2 as a foundation, from its world map and management systems to specific actions like defensive “Overwatch” posturing, developer CreativeForge reshaped it to create something new and intriguing: A Cold War-era espionage game that evokes the anxious energy that we’ve come to associate with cat-and-mouse spy stories.

  10. During Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct last week, we saw Luigi kick the bucket, and now fans are speculating that it ties in to the game's unannounced single-player campaign. Luigi's untimely death played out before our very eyes in the last week, but Nintendo has assured fans that the plumber is alive and well, despite his soul being cleaved from his body by the spectre of Castlevania's Death. But Luigi's apparent demise has led fans to believe the game's unannounced single-player mode will see players rescue characters who have had their souls taken.

  11. 2K Showcase is returning for WWE 2K19, with this year's story-driven campaign focusing on none other than the WWE career of Daniel Bryan - who returned to the ring this past March after being forced to prematurely retire two years ago! For this awesome announcement, IGN and other outlets were invited to Aberdeen, WA - the childhood home of Daniel Bryan - where we headed back to high school with Bryan himself. At Aberdeen High, in the middle of the gym, he spoke to us about being the focus of 2K19's Showcase. Continue reading… View the full article

  13. Everybody's Gone to the Rapture developer, The Chinese Room has been acquired by Sumo Group.

Sumo Group owns Sumo Digital, which is currently working on Crackdown 3 and Sonic Team Racing. Sumo Digital managing director, Paul Porter, has said the purchase of the studio will give the team an opportunity to " Continue reading… View the full article
  14. An unopened box of pristine condition 20 year-old Pokemon booster packs was recently auctioned off for $56,000 USD (approximately £40,000 / $94,500 AUD). The cards are one of a limited run of the first edition English base set booster boxes, reports Kotaku AU. With an opening bid of $20,000, the offers soon escalated, in no small part due to the fact that there's a fair chance it might contain a first edition holographic Charizard, which Kotaku AU reports sold for over $55,000 USD on eBay last year. The pristine condition box sold via Huggins & Scott Auctions last week after 82 bids were made, and drew to a close as four bidders battled it out for ownership, according to Ludkins Collectables.

  22. Though we may get another tease or two in the weeks to come, the launch trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man is likely our last big look at the upcoming PS4 exclusive. And though it largely touches on scenes and themes we’ve seen before, could its structure be hinting at a much larger, playable role for one of its main supporting characters? Insomniac Games revealed Miles Morales would appear in its Spider-Man adventure back at E3 2017, with a quick tease of Peter Parker-as-Spidey swinging over his head. But since then, we’ve gotten even more Miles. Continue reading… View the full article
  23. Ion Hazzikostas, the current game director for World of Warcraft, is set to give the opening “Storytime” keynote speech at PAX West 2018, which will take place in the Washington State Convention Center between August 31 and September 3. Though Hazzikostas joined Blizzard in 2008 to design raid encounters, balance classes and maintain the game's achievement system for Wrath of the Lich King, he officially became WoW's game director in 2016. This keynote will come after WoW's newest expansion, Battle for Azeroth, is released on August 14. “There really are two worlds - one before World of Warcraft, and one after,” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder of Penny Arcade and PAX. “I can't wait to hear Ion Hazzikostas share some stories from the early days of WoW all the way up to the release of Battle for Azeroth.” Continue reading… View the full article

  25. The massive rift in Fortnite's sky is starting to shrink and will continue to disappear over the next week. An update released this past Saturday started the closure of the rift where small sections began to vanish every day. According to leaker @FNBRLeaks, the rift will completely disappear on August 21. During Season 4, the impressive rocket launch event took place during the season's ninth week and ultimately created the giant rift we see today. Teases for the event like the skulls appearing on TV screens and the rocket holograms began appearing during the season's seventh week. Continue reading… View the full article

  27. It’s been five long years since we first hopped aboard Edward Kenway’s Jackdaw in Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, and aside from the arctic reskin we saw in Assassin’s Creed Rogue, seafaring hasn’t made many appearances in the franchise since. While the few tastes of naval combat we got in Origins definitely whet our appetites for war on the open ocean, Ubisoft Quebec is serving up a fully-overhauled version of the beloved combat and travel system in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. “We felt like it was a good time to bring back something that fans were really happy with in past Assassin’s Creeds,” says Game Director on Odyssey Scott Phillips. “Origins touched on it a little bit, and then we sort of redesigned it - had to build all new tech in order to support the seamless open-world nature,” he continues, explaining that they couldn’t merely just expand on the short ship sections of Origins built on the AnvilNext 2.0 engine that’s been in use since Assassin’s Creed Unity.
