• Ever since Apex Legends came out… *checks notes* one week ago, fans of Respawn’s free-to-play battle royale game have been vocally demanding for the inclusion of Solos and Duos modes to complement the single, three player squad based match type available in the multiplayer title. Read more The best Apex Legends characters to play as, and which one’s right for youWhile the Titanfall 2 studio has remained mostly silent on the matter, new efforts from dataminers (i.e. people who comb through a ga

  • Still, HBO has seen fit to drop a few new Game of Thrones season 8 images into our laps. Here he is, having ridden away from King’s Landing (and Cersei) during the final episode of Game of Thrones season 7:Notice anything? And I like how he’s no longer in lavish Lannister armour, he’s dressed for a real, gritty battle and I’m loving it!

  • Debut author Jenn Lyons’s fantasy novel The Ruin of Kings centres on 15-year-old minstrel’s apprentice Kihrin, whose life is turned on its head when he’s claimed as the lost heir to a grand house. Yes and no, since this puts him at the centre of an ancient prophecy, and now every side – from gods and demons to dragons and mages – want him as their pawn. We gave the book a rave review, saying, “the world-building is vivid, and Lyons’s vision feels fresh and fun. You sense a real intellect at work

  • Norman Reedus has already offered his thoughts on Hideo Kojima’s upcoming PS4 epic Death Stranding, of which he is the central star, but The Walking Dead season 9 actor isn’t the only one building up the hype for the auteur’s first game since Metal Gear Solid 5. Check out his comments in full below:So @HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN let me play DEATH STRANDING❗️The world is next-level immaculate. Remember when FURY ROAD blew you away but also made you (in the best-most-thankful way) ask “wtf” how does this mir

  • If she’s in it, Captain Marvel is undoubtedly going to be the wildcard in Avengers 4: Endgame. She can fly in space, she can punch Skrulls disguised as grannies really, really hard and, yes, she has Goose the cat. But Thanos needn’t be packing his bags for the nearest one-way flight to Titan just yet. Speaking to Cinema Blend, the topic of overpowered characters came up, particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel. No longer is a man in a suit the only framework for a superhero: we have trees,
    The Russos have a plan in place to make sure characters like Captain Marvel aren’t too powerful in Avengers: Endgame

  • That said, we’ve only recently hit the Lunar New Year, so to celebrate the Year of the Pig, Pokemon Go is throwing a zodiac-themed event. As The Pokemon Company announced today, the event is now live and will run through Wednesday, February 13 at 1pm PST / 4pm EST / 9pm BST. Fittingly, the focus of the event is a hand-picked cluster of Pokemon corresponding to the 12 Chinese Zodiac animals. You’ll also get double XP for catching and evolving Pokemon, and whenever you trade Pokemon, they’ll have

  • This model also includes a seasonal battle pass, and while it’s still unavailable at the time of this writing, it’s clear that Apex’s battle pass has taken cues from Fortnite Battle Royale’s. EA outlined the Apex battle pass in the official Apex FAQ . As Apex project lead Drew McCoy told us , developer Respawn Entertainment is adamant about avoiding pay-to-win microtransactions in Apex, so everything in the battle pass is cosmetic-only. As such, new Legends – Apex’s name for playable heroes – wi

  • In amongst all the excitement of the new Avengers 4: Endgame trailer that dropped last night, it felt like something was missing. No, not those who were snapped away in Avengers: Infinity War – though their absence was keenly felt – but another person entirely. I noticed something peculiar in the Super Bowl trailer for Avengers: Endgame — Who has been edited out between Bruce & Rhodey? Not only did this scene edit everyone out in the original Avengers: Endgame trailer, but there’s also another o
    Fans think an MCU hero has been mysteriously edited out of the new Avengers: Endgame trailer – but why?

  • Whenever we played I’d always know that once Orchid was in the roster I didn’t really have a chance. To recap: M. Bison (a sort-of Russian bus conductor dressed like a 1990s Euro House DJ) had the ability to completely bend the rules of Capcom’s seminal 2D fighting game. Unfortunately for those who couldn’t get a full team of players in Left 4 Dead, the game took control of whoever was left. As a result, I spent longer than I’d care to admit running away from my allies in a twisted-but-well-mean

  • During a recent Crackdown 3 hands-on event where I tried to take on the final boss at Level 1 , I also got some quality time with Wrecking Zone, Crackdown 3’s 5v5 multiplayer mode. You can watch one of those multiplayer matches in full above or on YouTube , complete with rocket launcher blasts, melee charges, and high jumps all in 4K. To justify Agent-on-Agent violence, the lore explains that Wrecking Zone is just a simulation the Agency uses to train recruits as they shoot, leap, and dodge arou

  • Our sister publication SFX got a chance to talk with Nadia Hilker, the actress who portrays new group leader Magna, about some of her fellow newcomers to the cast. Naturally, the conversation started with Alpha, AKA the leader of those freaky Walker-skin wearing Whisperers. “I think that Alpha is going to be one of the scariest characters on television,” Hilker said. “I’m very intrigued by her and scared of her – I would definitely not want to mess with her in real life,” Hilker explained. She’s

  • The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is out next week, and promises the same mix of tongue-in-cheek humor, extravagant animation, and beloved childhood toys. This movie takes place five years after the first Lego Movie, and Duplo toys have invaded the Lego world, causing chaos and creating a wasteland called Apocalypseburg. An evil queen, a kidnapping, and a marriage proposal all mean that our hero Emmet has to head into space, meeting Rex Dangervest, and plenty more Lego characters, along the way.

  • We’ve all wanted Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut since the very moment he took compassionate leave from the project and Joss Whedon stepped in to take over. But here’s something you probably didn’t know existed and now probably want with every ounce of your being: a Justice League trilogy that involves Darkseid, Green Lantern, huge space battles, and a mid-trilogy ending that would’ve gone neck and neck with Avengers: Infinity War in the devastation stakes. As revealed by Kevin Smith on his Fat

  • More possible news has surfaced about the super secret development of the PS5, Sony’s next-gen follow up console to the hugely successful PS4, and this latest rumour is one of the most exciting things we’ve heard yet. Cerny, as many will know, is the lead architect of the PS4, and rumoured to be heavily involved with the development of its successor. The mention of his name here suggests that Cerny hasn’t just been working on the PS5, but has even come up with a formula for the console to play P

  • “For me, Anthem really represents that next evolutionary step,” game director Jon Warner tells us. But BioWare’s new Anthem game could well be more than that – for you, the players, and for the wider industry. We’ve been enthused by Anthem from the moment it was revealed back at E3 2017 and, despite the comparisons it invites to the likes of Destiny 2, Warframe and The Division, Anthem really is its own animal. Then there’s the story that goes on in the world; Anthem is a world that was left und

  • The cat’s out the bag: Captain Marvel has reportedly already been shown to a handful of lucky people. Not Brie Larson making her MCU debut, not young Nick Fury, and not even the return of Agent Coulson has stirred as much reaction as Goose the frickin’ cat. According to a tweet from journalist Steven Weintraub, the Captain Marvel screening ended with “everyone talking about the cat.” Because of course.

  • According to reports, Ben Affleck, who donned the cowl in three DC Extended Universe movies (Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, and Justice League), won’t be coming back for the solo Batman movie. The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves, is going to be shaking things up. The word on the street is that we’ll be getting a story based around a younger Bruce Wayne – and it’ll be out in 2021. As first revealed by Deadline, Ben Affleck is being replaced as the billionaire due to a focus on a younger Bruce
