Dragon Ball FighterZ Adds Trunks To Its Roster

At its E3 reveal earlier this month, Dragon Ball FighterZ had only six fighters: Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Frieza, Cell, and Majin Buu. This week we get one additional character: Future Trunks.

As Siliconera reports, the latest issue of Famitsu shows a screenshot of the character in action, performing what looks to be a super move. Future Trunks is the son of Bulma and Vegeta from another timeline, wherein Androids 17 and 18 have turned the world into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. After realizing his current world is likely doomed, Trunks travels back in time to warn the Goku of the main timeline about the impending Android threat. He's also pretty good with a sword.

For more on Dragon Ball FighterZ, check out our interview with producer Tomoko Hiroki.

 

Our Take
Trunks is a pretty safe and likely pick for the roster, so I don't think anyone was losing sleep over his inclusion. I'm curious to see what future characters will be announced, though.

Weekend Warrior – Back To The Old Grind

Many of us are still suffering from our post-E3 hangover. That means returning to the games we abandoned for a week and trying to figure out what the hell we were last doing before we saved. It also means that as the dust settles and the hype has worn off from last week's reveals, we're reflecting on what we just witnessed over the past week. So what do you think? Apart from what you'll be playing, let us know in the comments how you feel about the announcements one week later. And for what we thought be sure to check out our Best of E3 Awards.

 

Jared Koncsol (@JaredKoncsol) – I started Doom a few days ago, so I’ll be finishing that up. I’m also hoping to get into NBA 2K17 some, but I finally broke down and ordered Overwatch so my life can become the unceasing sinkhole I’ve always wanted it to be.

 

Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – I feel like it’s the same story for me every weekend at this point: Persona 5 and Overwatch.

 

Doug DeLong (@DeLongDoug) – It’s another weekend of Zelda for me. I finally got over my urge to collect every Korok seed so I should be able to start moving through the game faster. I’m also getting an itch to play something other than Switch, and I’ve got two options –  just need to decide which. I think I’ll probably blow a bunch of money on the Steam sale or pick up a PS4. 

 

Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – I’m still in E3 recovery mode, so hopefully this weekend will offer respite from last week’s insanity. A Cars 3 viewing will probably happen; a lake will be visited; a meal will be consumed; Nier: Automata will be played; and finally, sleeping in will occur (maybe).

 

Suriel Vazquez (@SurielVazquez) – I played about an hour of Yakuza 0 last night and enjoyed it a lot, so I’ll probably continue learning about these Dojimas and Kazumas everyone’s talking about. I’m also mulling over when I’ll replay Wolfenstein: The New Order since the new one’s on the way. I liked it the first time around but didn’t love it, so I’m hoping I’ll like it more this time around. Also, I bought Thumper on Switch so I might try that at some point.


Craig Taylor (@CraigTaylor0805) – I'm still grinding through Kingdom Hearts II, and I have to say that all the people who told me II was better than the original Kingdom Hearts are out of their minds. I'll also be teaching Jared the ropes in Overwatch because he's probably really bad.

Ed Boon Posts July 11 Date For Sub-Zero DLC In Injustice 2

Red Hood recently made his Injustice 2 debut as the first fighter included in the Fighter Pack 1 DLC bundle, and director Ed Boon has given fans more information on when the first crossover character, Mortal Kombat's Sub-Zero, will be arriving in the game.

Boon, who is known to deliver updates to the community through social media, took to Twitter this afternoon to give a date for Sub-Zero.

Winter is coming.....in July. pic.twitter.com/DEj3QwV3G0

— Ed Boon (@noobde) June 23, 2017

Sub-Zero is the first crossover character to hit Injustice 2. NetherRealm has teased that Raiden might make an appearance in a future DLC bundle by posting a seemingly obvious silhouette in the Fighter Pack 1 trailer.

Fighter Pack 1 also features Red Hood (already out) and Starfire. Scorpion set the precedent for Mortal Kombat crossover characters in the Injustice series by way of DLC in the first game.

[Update] Rockstar Updates Support Page With Clearer Statement On Grand Theft Auto Modding And Cheat Tool

Update 2: June 23 @ 3:15 p.m.

Rockstar Games has added a new page to its support site to address what we assume was an influx of customer service emails regarding its recent policy change. You can read the full post below.

Question: Are PC Single-Player Mods Allowed?

Answer: After discussions with Take-Two, Take-Two has agreed that it generally will not take legal action against third-party projects involving Rockstar’s PC games that are single-player, non-commercial, and respect the intellectual property (IP) rights of third parties. This does not apply to (i) multiplayer or online services; (ii) tools, files, libraries, or functions that could be used to impact multiplayer or online services, or (iii) use or importation of other IP (including other Rockstar IP) in the project. This is not a license, and it does not constitute endorsement, approval, or authorization of any third-party project. Take-Two reserves the right to object to any third-party project, or to revise, revoke and/or withdraw this statement at any time in their own discretion. This statement does not constitute a waiver of any rights that Take-Two may have with respect to third-party projects.

Update 1: June 17 @ 3:23 p.m.

Rockstar Games has provided Game Informer with an official statement clarifying the matter:

“Take-Two's actions were not specifically targeting single player mods. Unfortunately OpenIV enables recent malicious mods that allow harassment of players and interfere with the GTA Online experience for everybody.  We are working to figure out how we can continue to support the creative community without negatively impacting our players.”

Additionally, for-profit modding outfit Force Hax, who hosted the software, has replaced their website with their own statement:

"After discussions with Take-Two Interactive, effective immediately we are ceasing all maintenance, development and distribution of the Force Hax cheat menu services. We will be donating our proceeds to charity and we apologize for any and all problems Force Hax services have caused to the Grand Theft Auto Online Community."

The "donating our proceeds to charity" portion of the statement was at the request of Rockstar itself, the company confirmed to Game Informer.

Original Story: The Grand Theft Auto modding scene has been enormously popular, with fans tweaking and adding new things to the game (like the Crysis nanosuit, pictured above) since its release. It made for a cool way to keep the game alive past its expiration date and lead to some fun videos. Unfortunately, GTA publisher Take-Two has decided to put a stop to it.

As Motherboard reports, the lead developer behind the leading GTA modding software, OpenIV, has announced via his Twitter that Take-Two sent them a cease-and-desist letter on June 5. In the letter, Take-Two cites the mods ability "to defeat security features of its software and modify that software in violation of Take-Two's rights."

The developer, GooD-NTS, was aware his modding tool was always in a legal grey area, and had anticipated the cease-and-desist would one day arrive. In 2015 they told Motherboard that developer Rockstar wanted "modding dead," and was using a new algorithm to slow modders down. Good-NTS is also not planning on fighting the cease-and-desist in court. "Going to court will take at least few months of our time and huge amount of efforts, and, at best, we'll get absolutely nothing," they said in a forum post. Spending time just to restore status quo is really unproductive, and all the money in the world can't compensate the loss of time."

 

Our Take
Companies have every right to shut down any fan-created projects that might interfere with their bottom line or user experience. That said, it's always a bummer to see something that gave a game a new way to shine get axed.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Hits Four Million Copies Sold

The last-man-standing shooter has achieved an inordinate amount of success with its stint in Early Access. Bluehole Studio originally launched the Early Access of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on Steam on March 23, and in that three month span, it has already accumulated a whopping $100 million in revenue. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has peaked at 230,000 concurrent users on Steam with over 100,000 sessions played daily.

"I genuinely appreciate all the love and support the fans have shown to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds," stated Chang Han Kim, Vice President and Executive Producer for Bluehole. "Our team is working passionately to deliver a stable gameplay experience as we prepare our full launch later this year."

Check out our archived livestream here, and watch our interview with PlayerUnknown here.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Early Access is available now on Steam and releases, likely as a timed exclusive, for Xbox One later this year. A full version is expected to come in early 2018.

 

Our Take
For a game to spend three months in Early Access and already be hitting these sales figures is absolutely ludicrous. With the constant support and improvements from Bluehole, it seems like the sky is the limit for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

Sonic Mania Gets Collectible Vinyl Soundtrack

Sonic Mania, which hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on August 15, has been billed as a retro-facing celebration of the Genesis games that put Sonic the Hedgehog on the map. A big part of that nostalgic package is the music of the Sonic franchise. In addition to the new songs, remixed versions of classic Sonic tunes also appear in the game.

This vinyl package features select tracks from composer Tee Lopes, as well as exclusive artwork for the sleeve. If you're looking to pick up the vinyl, it is available in three different variants: Sonic Blue, Classic Black, and a limited edition version. Pre-orders open on Data Discs in mid-July.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Gets Standalone Release

As was reported earlier this week, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is receiving a standalone release. Activision today made it official that the classic FPS will finally be available to buy on its own beginning on PlayStation 4 next week, with other platforms to follow at a later date.

The title was previously only available for those who bought special editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which was released last year. The game features the full campaign and 16 multiplayer maps. The package does not include the Modern Warfare Remastered Variety Map Pack, which features the Killhouse, Broadcast, Creek, and Chinatown maps.

Tuesday's release kicks off Call of Duty's "Days of Summer" promotion, a five-week community event that features maps, double XP, new playlists, gear, and more. The "Days of Summer" event also includes a summer-themed map available for play in Modern Warfare Remastered for the duration of the event. Activision teases that we'll learn more on Tuesday when the PS4 version of Modern Warfare Remastered launches.

The standalone version of Modern Warfare Remastered will cost $39.99 and hits PlayStation 4 on June 27. It will be available both physically and digitally. There is currently no word on when the Xbox One and PC standalone versions will release.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 Prototype Demo Focuses On Scale

Yesterday, Michel Ancel teased that a video of the Beyond Good & Evil 2 prototype would be available the next day. That would be today – and you'll never guess what popped up online! Check out the video for an early look at the game, which focuses on its impressive scale.

The video runs through the same demo we saw at E3 last week, but it's worth checking out. It stars the same monkey from the reveal trailer, though he's mercifully silent. Rather than focusing on the character's personality and the seedy world in which he lives, the demo highlights just how big the environments are. It starts with a look at the character's mothership, which houses a smaller individual ship. From there, we see a massive statue, and zoom out to get a better sense of just how massive it really is. Ancel pulls the camera back even further, showing off a nearby city, the continent it's on, and eventually the planet where everything we've seen takes place.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

There's no real gameplay to speak of – the game itself is still extremely early in development – but Ancel points out that when it begins, players will be able to do things like deliver pizzas to earn money. While you're on a delivery, you can explore the ships you've been called to, potentially discovering things like slaves and human-trafficking operations in progress. The game takes place before Jade was born, but players will still have access to a camera and can take photos of these illicit activities to complete missions.

We'll have more on the game in the coming months. In the meantime, take a look at our feature, which recaps our impressions from seeing this demo live.

Free Titanfall 2 DLC Continues To Pack New Content

Today, Respawn announced its 6th installation of DLC for Titanfall 2, featuring new maps, a new execution, and other additional content.

The new War Games map takes players into civilian territory with a plethora of shops, high-rise buildings, and wide city streets. The map's outskirts provide a perfect battleground for Titan conflicts, while Pilots can take to the interior, utilizing wallrunning routes and building windows for combat. A new Live Fire Map, called Traffic, is also becoming available, dropping players into a densely packed test site with two large thoroughfares for mobility.

The DLC also includes the Shadow Boxing [Holo Pilot] execution and gives Pilots a third weapon slot. Titan Brawl is becoming a permanent game mode, while a new featured mode, Free Agents, makes its debut.

For a full list of DLC additions, check here. For more Titanfall 2 DLC to come, click here.

The War Games DLC is available beginning June 27 on all platforms for free.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Could Still Come To PS4

A recent article from UK publication Daily Express has been making the rounds claiming that the game will remain an exclusive for the Xbox One. This is the quote in full:

"We also found out that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is NOT coming to PS4 but will instead remain an Xbox One exclusive."

However, we reached out to Bluehole Studios and received a statement from the developer's spokesperson that refutes that claim:

"We're excited to announce that PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS is coming to Xbox One. We're always looking at various platforms to potentially introduce our game, but have nothing further to announce at this time."

Obviously, this is not an ironclad declaration that the game will come to other platforms, but it is a refutation of the Daily Express's statement that the game will remain an Xbox One exclusive.

For more on Player Unknown Battlegrounds, check out our in-depth interview with the developer.

 

Our Take
Microsoft's language about exclusives during its E3 conference was confusing, so it's not surprising that the news of PUBG being an "exclusive" has sent mixed messages. Still, it's good to know that a multi-platform console release is still on the table.

Hearthstone Update Aims To Keep Legendary Cards Fresh

Duplicate cards are one of life's annoyances, at least for Hearthstone players. Blizzard has heard from fans and is incorporating some changes to the way cards are distributed, which will be a boon for those who are looking to add more legendaries to their decks.

Once the update goes live, any legendary card you own or gain from a new pack will be removed from the distribution pool until you have all the legendary cards from that set. You'll also be guaranteed to get a legendary card within the first 10 packs of a new set, starting with the next expansion. 

Check out the video below for complete details.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

In addition to these upcoming changes, Blizzard has announced a deal for Journey to Un'Goro card packs. For a limited time, players will get bonus packs with purchased bundles – two extra packs with seven-pack bundles; five additional packs with the 15-pack bundles; and a dozen extra with the 40-pack bundles. The PC-exclusive 60 pack option gets a bonus 18 packs, too.

Battleborn Gets A New Competitive Multiplayer Mode

Supercharge is a fast-paced 3v3 mode for Battleborn, played on all-new maps, and it will be available later today.

The new mode plays like a mix between Meltdown and Capture. The smaller team size requires players to closely coordinate as they try to escort their minions through gates for points, while simultaneously trying to maintain control of a capture point that "supercharges" their minions. Supercharge will have its own challenges for players to complete that will net them more titles, experience, and credits. 

If you want to give it a try, you don't have much longer to wait. Supercharge goes live at 12 p.m. PT.

 

Our Take:
We weren't huge fans of Battleborn when it first launched, but Gearbox has continued to work on improving the game and adding more content in the time since. Now that most of the game is accessible for free it may be worth giving this new mode a look.

New Jurassic World Movie Gets A Name And Poster

The sequel to the 2015 summer blockbuster Jurassic World now has an official subtitle and movie poster.

Here's the fresh new poster for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

The tagline of course references the classic Jeff Goldblum line in the original Jurassic Park, "Life... uh... finds a way."

(Please visit the site to view this media)

The first Jurassic World represents what many studios consider to be the ideal modern movie: a soft reboot of an existing property people already trust that rakes in over $1.6 billion. I personally thought the movie was dumb, harmless fun but I know plenty of others who came away with strong, negative impressions.

Admittedly it's impossible to tell how this movie is shaping up from just a poster. But one can speculate.

Fallen Kingdom releases June 22, 2018.

Ron Howard Now Directing Han Solo Film

A few days ago, we learned that the upcoming Han Solo film had lost directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Today, Lucasfilm has revealed who's taking over, and it's someone that you've probably heard of before. Ron Howard (Apollo 13, Backdraft, Willow) is now in the director's seat for the upcoming project, which still has a May 25, 2018, release date.

“At Lucasfilm, we believe the highest goal of each film is to delight, carrying forward the spirit of the saga that George Lucas began forty years ago,” Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, said in a statement. “With that in mind, we’re thrilled to announce that Ron Howard will step in to direct the untitled Han Solo film. We have a wonderful script, an incredible cast and crew, and the absolute commitment to make a great movie. Filming will resume the 10th of July.”

ZeniMax Back In Court With Oculus VR

Earlier this year ZeniMax was awarded $500 million from Oculus for failure to comply with a non-disclosure agreement, but the two companies' legal battle over VR trade secrets is not over.

The pair are back in court, with ZeniMax not only looking for another $500 million, but also to halt Oculus from selling its Rift headset or for 20 percent of revenue from Rift sales for 10 years. Oculus, meanwhile, wants the first award thrown out entirely or reduced, as well as damages from ZeniMax.

ZeniMax claims that Oculus stole trade secrets in the creation of its Rift headset.

[Source: Gamasutra]

 

Our Take
Given how the first award was only related to a non-disclosure agreement, I assumed that ZeniMax's fight would continue on other legal fronts.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 Prototype Video To Be Available Tomorrow

Beyond Good & Evil 2 mastermind Michel Ancel wrote on instagram today that a prototype video for the game will be available tomorrow.

Presumably, the video will be the same presentation that many at E3 received behind closed doors. Ubisoft describes development for the game as being at day zero, but they have an impressive engine they have been developing for the game.

For more on Beyond Good & Evil 2, head here to read four things Ubisoft envisions for the game, which covers much of what will likely be available widely tomorrow.

 

Our Take
I was at E3, but unfortunately was not able to see Beyond Good & Evil 2's prototype. I look forward to checking out the video tomorrow.

First prototype video ready and available tomorrow !!! 🚀🌘 Well, I look and sound terrible but we really want to share that with you anyway .

Oilers Star Connor McDavid Named NHL 18 Cover Athlete

EA Sports has no shortage of spectacular young stars to choose from when it comes to cover athletes. Auston Matthews, Patrik Laine, Jack Eichel, Matt Murray, and many other skaters under 25 years old would be ideal cover candidates. But for this year's high-flying edition of the game, EA went for the best. 

The NHL 18 cover athlete honors go to Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid, arguably the most talented player in the game. Last year, at just 19 years old, he became the youngest captain in NHL history. He took on the responsibility in legendary fashion, ending the Oilers' 10-year playoff drought and winning the Art Ross Trophy (led the NHL in scoring) and the Ted Lindsay Award (voted the most outstanding player in the regular season) in just his second season. Only two players in NHL history were younger than McDavid when they won the prestigious Art Ross Trophy. Their names? Wayne Gretzky and Sidney Crosby.

“Representing NHL 18 as the cover athlete is an incredible honor,” McDavid said in a press statement. “I’ve played EA Sports NHL every year since I was a kid. To appear on the cover, something that has been done previously by so many players that I respect and admire is very exciting.”

NHL 18 comes to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 15. If you want to check out the game before it comes out, EA once again plans to offer a public beta starting July 25. You can register for the beta here

Attack On Titan Season 3 Coming In 2018

Japanese animation team, Wit Studio, is rolling out season three of Attack on Titan in 2018, and Funimation has released a teaser for the upcoming episodes.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

Few details are given away by the teaser, although it seems we'll be getting a a fresh crop of antagonists as well as a potential look into Eren and Misaka's past. While the illustrated stills don't give us anything concrete, the quote, "Behold, the sea..." poses a mysterious theme for fans to mull over during the wait. Fortunately, the 2018 release window means we won't have to endure another four year gap like the one between seasons one and two.

Prior to the season two premier, Funimation arranged for select U.S. theaters to show the Attack on Titan recap movies, Guren no Yumiya and Jiyuu no Tsubasa, so fans can hope for another set of refreshers in the near future.
