  4. On this week's episode of IGN's weekly PlayStation show, Beyond!, host Jonathon Dornbush is joined by Tina Amini, Brian Altano, and IGN's Homepage Editor Alex Osborn to discuss the recent PS4 message exploit, Spider-Man's upcoming DLC, and PSN ID changes. For the second half of the show, Barrett Courtney comes in to discuss the conversation that arose about Red Dead Redemption 2 and crunch in the gaming industry at large following quotes about 100-hour work weeks at Rockstar, which Rockstar's Dan Houser later clarified were referencing he and his writing team's hours for a few weeks earlier this year. The initial reception of those, though, brought back up the conversation about how crunch affects game developers. Continue reading… View the full article
  5. The former President of the United States of America says he doesn't care about Pokemon...but only to prove a point about voting. ATTN has put together a video featuring Barack Obama shutting down seven excuses people regularly use not to vote. In his first point, he likens people not caring about politics to his own feelings towards the popular Pokemon franchise, saying "Look, I don't care about Pokemon, but that doesn't mean that it won't keep on coming back." President @BarackObama doesn't have time for these 7 excuses not to vote. pic.twitter.com/2Etpm6taTq Continue reading… View the full article
  6. It goes without saying that battle royale games grab the attention of adrenaline junkies all over the globe. We know that feeling personally at IGN, especially in light of the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 — and we’ve got something planned for a crazy Blackout stream. CyPhlux (Jordan Parkhurst) and ImGato (Bernardo Herrera) took up the challenge of trying to win five games in Call Of Duty: Black Ops - Blackout during their first live stream this past friday. Taking three wins home, they missed the mark. But Jordan (CyPhlux) wants to not just aim for five wins again, but heighten the stakes with a bet to make things more interesting.

"I have the news you've all been waiting for," The Stanley Parable writer and designer Davey Wredent tweeted this morning. "Today is the first day that it is possible to legitimately get the Go Outside achievement in The Stanley Parable." Continue reading… View the full article
  9. The 1998 E3 trailer for 3D Realms’ Prey was quick to tout its use of ‘portal technology,’ but it ultimately never panned out for the developers, who ended up releasing a considerably different version of the game in 2006. 3D Realms co-founder Scott Miller sat down on this month’s IGN Unfiltered to share behind-the-scenes details on the development of Prey, as well as the cancellation of Prey 2.

  10. What seems to be Japanese packaging for Red Dead Redemption 2 has appeared online and, if genuine, it shows that the PS4 physical edition is spread across 2 discs. On the game's back cover, a symbol indicating the double-disc format is shown: 『レッド・デッド・リデンプション2』ディスク2枚組が確定。PS4版ダミージャケットより判明 - https://t.co/U0eZRV0zOp pic.twitter.com/H2BxnMXP2Z — ゲームのはなし (@gamenohanashi) October 17, 2018 Double-disc games are more familiar from older generations of console, when games could far outstrip the storage capacity of optical discs.

  11. The latest trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 will arrive tomorrow, October 18, at 7am Pacific / 10am Eastern / 3pm UK (or 1am AEST on October 19). Rockstar also announced that pre-ordering the digital version will allow players to pre-load the game from Friday. That'll come in handy, because the game is looking to be pretty big. Red Dead Redemption 2 launches on PS4 and Xbox One on October 26. Developing... Continue reading… View the full article
  12. Actor Sean Bean will voice the character Mark Faba in Hitman 2's first Elusive Target mission, Kill the Undying. That means Bean is portraying yet another character who is doomed to die, as has been the actor's professional lot in life. "It's a talent of sorts, I suppose," says Bean as Mark Faba in a tongue-in-cheek live-action video poking fun at Bean characters' penchant for dying. "I never expected to be like this, but they keep trying to kill me, you know? "I've cheated death countless times. I'm like a stage magician. I know all the tricks. They think they're clever, but they've got nothing on me. I even managed to make them think I'd been blown up." Hitman's Elusive Target mode was introduced in the last game, and gives players only one chance to assassinate an individual in the the limited-time mode – so it may be that Bean escapes at least a few times after all.

  13. We're only two weeks from Halloween, and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is seemingly going to celebrate the holiday with a spooky new event. In a short video, we see a brief look at some of the new outfits players can expect to wear to get in the Halloween spirit. These include a creepy nurse, a butcher, an evil clown, and masked characters straight out of The Purge all feature. Beware...

  15. A patch released for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has increased the player count for Blackout's Duos mode to 100, while also dropping the player count for Quads mode to 88. In an update post on Reddit, Treyarch explained that it was still testing out maximum player counts across its modes, and encouraged players to give feedback regarding the extra enemies they'd soon see roaming the battlefield in Duos. The previous Quads maximum player count was 100 -- the only mode in the game to support that number of players. Continue reading… View the full article

  18. After a six-year absence from the 3D fighting scene, Soulcalibur makes a triumphant return in its seventh entry in the main series. The next in Bandai Namco’s line of arcade fighting games keeps true to its unique brand of weapon-based combat while sprinkling in just the right amount of new mechanics. The combination not only sets it apart from its predecessors, but also keeps it competitive against all others in its genre. The story goes back to its roots, retelling the events of the original Soulcalibur, and provides two very different but equally worthwhile story modes that flesh out the tale of swords and souls in a way that’s more digestible than ever.

  22. While Red Dead Redemption 2’s single player is less than two weeks from release, we here at IGN are also super excited for its multiplayer component, Red Dead Online. We don’t know all that much about what the RDO experience will actually entail, but based on our time with Grand Theft Auto Online and what we know about the world of Red Dead 2, we’ve got some ideas -- and a few pie-in-the-sky dreams, of course -- about what we’d like to see in Red Dead Online.

  23. Over the next eleven days, CD Projekt Red will be sharing eleven "little known" facts about The Witcher to commemorate the series' eleventh anniversary. First up is previously unseen The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt concept art featuring the sorceress Triss Merigold. According to CD Projekt Red on Twitter, the art seen below shows "The Witcher 3 Triss, influenced by her outfit from The Witcher 2." Triss concept art for The Witcher 3 As of March 2018, the acclaimed action RPG series has collectively sold over 33 million copies, according to CD Projekt. The series' latest entry, The Witcher 3, was released in 2015 and went on to win our Game of the Year. IGN's The Witcher 3 review said its "excellent combat and RPG gameplay ... elevate Continue reading… View the full article
  24. NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 does a solid job making 2v2 arcade basketball fun for the long haul. Expanding on its predecessor, this sequel – now under the NBA 2K umbrella – includes two new major modes that enhance both the solo and multiplayer experiences. While the core gameplay feels very similar to NBA Playgrounds, that’s mostly a good thing. Playgrounds 2 still lacks the depth of the defunct NBA Street series and the pure chaos of the also-dormant NBA Jam, but it has found its footing as a unique take on arcade basketball in its own right. On the single-player side of the equation, Playgrounds 2 features a season mode, which replaces the six tournaments seen in the original. This isn’t a full-fledged 82-game haul, however. Instead, each season consists of 14 regular season games and a best-of-three playoff format for the top eight teams from each conference. The truncated schedule works well here. You can finish an entire season in under a couple hours with the default game length of three minutes. It’s a refreshing change of pace from the long slog of sports sim seasons. It also gives you the option to play the season cooperatively with a friend via couch co-op or online. Of note, season mode has four difficulty levels, and the AI feels smarter in the sequel, especially when ratcheting up the difficulty. Continue reading… View the full article
  25. Diamonad Select Toys is continuing its line of Kingdom Hearts toys with a brand new set of Kingdom Hearts 3 action figures. IGN can exclusively debut a first look at Sora with the Starseeker keyblade, as well as Maleficent with Diablo from Diamond Select. Sora and Maleficent will come together in a 2-pack, as well Goofy with his shield and Donald with his staff (these figures have previously been seen as part of the Kingdom Hearts 2 line of Diamond Select KH figures). Each 2-pack will cost $24.99 and they're expected for shipping in Spring 2019. The images above represent prototypes, so no packaging shots are currently available.
