  2. The official Twitter account for Mag Garden's Mag Comi website announced on Thursday that Daichi Marui's manga adaptation of Wit Studio's original television anime series Great Pretender will go on hiatus due Marui's poor health. The announcement noted that a return date for the manga remains undecided. Marui launched the manga on Mag Comi and on the Line Manga service on June 10. The first compiled book volume of the manga shipped on July 10. The anime's "Case 1" (episodes 1-5) premiered on Netflix in Japan with English subtitles on June 2, followed by "Case 2" (episodes 6-10) on June 9 and "Case 3" (episodes 11-14) on June 16. "Case 4" (episodes 15-23) of the anime will premiere on Netflix in Japan on September 21. Netflix is streaming the anime exclusively worldwide, but it is streaming in Japan ahead of the rest of the world. Netflix began streaming the anime outside of Japan on August 20. The anime premiered on July 8 on Fuji TV's +UItra programming block. The anime will run for two cours (quarters of a year) for a total of 23 episodes. The show's themes are "credit fraud" and "happy and comedic drama between worldly famous swindlers." The anime's official website describes the anime: Makoto Edamura is supposedly Japan's greatest swindler. Together with his partner Kudo, they try to trick a Frenchman in Asakusa but unexpectedly get tricked instead. The Frenchman, whom they tried to swindle, turns out to be Laurent Thierry- a much higher-level 'confidence man,' in control of the mafias. Edamura is yet to find out what fate awaits him, after having engaged in the Frenchman's dirty jobs...! Hiro Kaburagi (Hozuki's Coolheadedness, My Little Monster, 91 Days) is directing the series at Wit Studio. Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (Evangelion, FLCL) is designing the characters. Ryota Kosawa (Parasyte live-action film, Always: Sunset on Third Street live-action film series) is writing the scripts, and Yutaka Yamada (Tokyo Ghoul anime franchise, Vinland Saga) is composing the music. Maiko Okada is the producer. Yamada composed the opening theme song "G.P." The late Queen singer Freddie Mercury's cover of The Platters song "The Great Pretender" is the anime's ending theme song. This is Japan's first television anime to feature a song by Mercury as its theme. Source:AnimeNewsNetwork
  3. The 10th volume of Nagabe's The Girl from the Other Side: Siúil, a Rún manga revealed on Thursday that the series will end in its 11th volume on April 10. Seven Seas is releasing the manga in English, and it describes the story: In a world split between the Inside and the Outside, those living in both realms are told never to cross over to the other side, lest they be cursed. A young girl named Shiva lives on the other side, in a vacant village with a demonic guardian known only as “Teacher.” Although the two are forbidden to touch, they seem to share a bond that transcends their disparate appearances. But when Shiva leaves Teacher's care to seek out her grandmother, the secret behind her mysterious living arrangement comes to light. Nagabe began the series in 2015 in Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Garden magazine. Wit Studio produced a 10-minute anime adaptation of the manga that premiered at the Fantasia Festival in Montreal in August 2019. The anime has a DVD that bundled with the limited edition of the manga's eighth compiled book volume in September 2019. The anime is competing in the Short Animation for Young Audiences 6-12 division of the Films/Videos Made for Young Audiences category at this year's Ottawa International Animation Festival, which will be held from September 23 to October 4. The American Library Association's (ALA's) Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) ranked the manga on its list of Great Graphic Novels for Teens in 2018 and 2019. The manga was also nominated for the Best Comic award at the 45th Angoulême International Comics Festival in 2018. Source:AnimeNewsNetwork

Her first encounter with Toriko Nishina was on the Otherside after seeing "that thing" and nearly dying. Ever since that day, exhausted university student Sorawo Kamikoshi's life changed. In this Otherworld, full of mystery, which exists alongside our own, dangerous beings like the Kunekune and Hasshaku-sama that are spoken of in real ghost stories appear. For research, for profit, and to find an important person, Toriko and Sorawo set foot into the abnormal. A tale of two girls' bizarre exploration and survival, brought to you by an up-and-coming Sci-fi author!

The October issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine revealed on Saturday that Ammitsu's Ran the Peerless Beauty (Takane no Ran-san) manga will end in four chapters, including the chapter published on Saturday. If the manga does not take a break it should end in the January 2021 issue, which will ship in December. Ammitsu launched the manga in Kodansha's Bessatsu Friend magazine in July 2017, and Kodansha published the manga's ninth compiled volume on Friday. The ninth volume revealed that the manga's 10th and final compiled volume will ship in January. Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally, and it describes the series: Ran is beautiful and stylish, with leading scores in her class. No boy on Earth would have the gall to try their hand with her, and no one would think that she's so entirely innocent… except Akira. Join us in this innocent love story about Rin the “mountaintop flower” and Akira, whose parents own a flowershop. Kodansha Comics released the manga's eighth volume digitally on August 11.

  6. Funimation has announced that it has added several new anime titles in the U.K. and Ireland. They are When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace (available here), Naruto Spin-Off: Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals (here), Hanayamata (here), DRAMAtical Murder (here) and Trinity Seven (here). When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace adapts Kota Nozomi's Inou Battle Within Everyday Life (Inō-Battle wa Nichijō-kei no Naka de/INOU-Battle in the Usually Daze.) novel series. In the original novel series' story, the five members of the literature club awakened with extraordinary powers half a year ago. Although the members expected to be thrown into a world of super-powered battles (inō-battle) at their school, their normal daily routine continued. No secret organizations bent on world destruction, no super-powered wars, no braves or demon kings. Masanori Takahashi directed the series at animation Studio Trigger with series composition by Masahiko Otsuka. Satoshi Yamaguchi designed the characters for the anime, and Elements Garden provided the music. The Naruto Spin-Off: Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals (Naruto SD: Rock Lee no Seishun Full-Power Ninden) anime adapts Kenji Taira's Rock Lee no Seishun Full-Power Ninden gag comedy manga, which centered on the secondary Naruto character Rock Lee. The "SD" in the title stands for "Sugoi Doryoku," or "Super Determined." ("SD" traditionally means "super-deformed.") The 12-episode series Hanayamata premiered in July 2014.14-year-old Naru Sekiya is just ordinary in every way. Naru leads an ordinary day-to-day life even as she adores "heroines." She embarks on a path to an unordinary world called "Yosakoi" dance, guided by an exotic fairylike girl she met one moonlit evening. Atsuko Ishizuka (The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, No Game, No Life) directed the anime at the Studio Madhouse. Reiko Yoshida (K-ON!, Girls und Panzer, Tamako Market) wrote and supervised the scripts, and Atsuko Watanabe (GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class, Juden Chan, The Everyday Tales of a Cat God) designed the characters. Sentai Filmworks, which released DRAMAtical Murder in America, describes the series: "Nothing on Midorijima has been the same since the powerful Toue Konzern forced the original population into the Old Residential District and converted the rest of the island into the exclusive resort Platinum Jail. Despite that, Aoba Seragaki has tried to build a normal life for himself, working part-time in a junk shop and hanging out with his friends and his A.I. "pet" AllMate, Ren. "But when Aoba is drawn into the shady underworld that surrounds the popular virtual game Rhyme, the universe that he thought he knew falls apart. If deja vu describes the sensation of experiencing something that you think you may have done before, what is it called when other people seem to recognize you for doing things that you don't remember doing? All Aoba knows is that there are gaps in his memory, people are disappearing, and a secret buried in his own mind may be the only keys to revelation." Trinity Seven is "romantic comedy but sometime serious magical school story" in which a bizarre incident known as "Collapse Phenomenon," causes worldwide destruction and takes Arata Kasuga's cousin Hijiri Kasuga to the next world. To resolve the "Collapse Phenomenon" and bring back Hijiri, Arata enrolls in the Royal Biblia Academy. Waiting in the school are seven beautiful female magic users — the Trinity Seven. Hiroshi Nishikiori (Azumanga Daioh, A Certain Magical Index) directed the series, and Hiroyuki Yoshino (Magi, Vividred Operation) was in charge of series composition. Shinpei Tomooka (Sekirei, Day Break Illusion) served as both character designer and chief animation director. Kyoko Kotani also served as chief animation director. TECHNOBOYS PULCRAFT GREEN-FUND composed the music and Seven Arcs Pictures (Mushibugyō) handled animation production. Source:AnimeNewsNetwork
  7. The official website for the World Witches United Front iOS and Android game began streaming a promotional video on Friday. The "witch-soaring omnidirectional shooting" game will launch this fall. Cave Interactive is developing the game in cooperation with Kadokawa and ForwardWorks. The game will center on the 509th Joint Fighter Wing with an original story, and it will be free to play but include in-app purchases. The World Witches franchise's World Witches Hasshin Shimasu—! (World Witches Take Off!) television anime will premiere in 2021. Like the previous Strike Witches: 501st JOINT FIGHTER WING Take Off! anime, the anime will follow the humorous daily lives of the Witches when they are not in battle. However, the new anime will not only feature the 501st Joint Fighter Wing (Strike Witches), but also the 502nd (Brave Witches). Many of the main cast and staff from Strike Witches: 501st JOINT FIGHTER WING Take Off! are returning for the new anime. Source:AnimeNewsNetwork
  8. Wit Studio (Attack on Titan, Great Pretender) and rock band Uchikubi Gokumon Doukoukai began steaming the "Sakugasaku" music video for their "animator fight song" collaboration project on Friday. They also revealed a key visual for the project. The anime studio and rock band announced the project at the Wit Studio Christmas Kai 2019 event in Tokyo on December 25. The music video's director and character designer Kyoji Asano (Attack on Titan, Psycho-Pass character designs) wanted to support young and student animators with their "enthusiasm for animation" with the project. Wit Studio and Uchikubi Gokumon Doukoukai planned the project for about a year. The music video's animation directors were Asano, Satoshi Kadowaki (Attack on Titan, Guilty Crown), and Yasuho Tamura (Attack on Titan, Given). Other staff members included: Art Director: Yūji Kaneko Color Design: Aiku Nakamura Director of Photography: Shōgo Hikami Motion Graphics: Toshiyuki Yamashita (Hyperball) 2D Works: Chihiro Kawashima Special Effects: Manaka Naka Editing: Ayumu Takahashi Wit Studio also gave "special thanks" to OLM, CloverWorks, CoMix Wave Films, Production I.G, Bones, and MAPPA for the project. Wit Studio's most recent anime, Great Pretender, premiered on July 8 on Fuji TV's +UItra programming block. The anime will run for two cours (quarters of a year) for a total of 23 episodes. Netflix began streaming the anime outside of Japan on August 20. Source:AnimeNewsNetwork
  9. Ubisoft has announced that upcoming free-to-play roller derby game Roller Champions will be releasing in 'Early 2021' slipping slightly out of its original 2020 target. In a video update shared yesterday as part of Ubisoft Forward, the developers also announced the 'Blueprint Initiative' where—starting in October— the team intend to provide more behind the scenes insight and development updates on gameplay, art, lore and more as well as allowing fans to influence the development on the game by interacting with the team on social media. You can check out the latest video for the game below. Roller Champions is set for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC in Early 2021. Source:VideoGamer
  10. Forever Entertainment has announced that their remaster of classic Sega game Panzer Dragoon: Remake will be heading to PC and PlayStation 4 soon. The game originally came out on Nintendo Switch and is an onrails shooter, with the remake naturally improving the visuals for modern systems and overhauling the control system to take advantage of current hardware. You can check out the original Nintendo Switch trailer for the game below if you'd like to see it in action. There's no specific date as of yet for the release but Panzer Dragoon: Remake will be available on PC via Steam and GOG and on PlayStation 4 "soon". Fans of the series may also be interested to know that the original trilogy is set to come to VR platforms courtesy of developer Wildman in 2021 in the form of Panzer Dragoon Voyage Record.

  11. Ubisoft Annecy has unveiled Riders Republic, a "massive multiplayer playground" of extreme sports featuring mountain bikes, snowboards, skies, wingsuits and more. You'll be able to join up with friends to take part in a range of different activities, such as races, trick challenges and more as individuals and as teams—and promises to include races featuring more than 50 players on next-gen and PC, with "more than 20" players on current-gen systems. You'll be competing over six disciplines including Bike Freestyle, Bike Racing, Ski Freestyle, Ski Racing, Wingsuit and Rocket Wingsuit. The game's set across seven National Parks from across the US including Mammoth Mountain, Yosemite, Grand Teton, Sequoia Park, Bryce Canyon, Zion and Canyonland with each offering wildly different terrain and conditions including snow, desert, rocky mountains and more. Naturally, there's various gear and outfits to improve your rider along the way and licensed competitions to enter from brands like Red Bull and the X Games. You can check out a couple of trailers for the game below. Riders Republic is set to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox Series S/X and PlayStation 5 from February 25, 2021. Source:VideoGamer
  12. Ubisoft has announced that UK grime artist Stormzy and the protagonist from the original Watch Dogs—Aiden Pearce—will both be coming to the upcoming Watch Dogs: Legion as playable characters. Both characters were revealed as part of last night's Ubisoft Forward, with Stormzy set to appear with his own mission on the game's launch day, while Aiden will get a full continuation of his story as post-launch standalone DLC which will be included in the game's Season Pass. On Stormzy's inclusion, Ubisoft's Clint Hocking said that when asking Londoners who would be an artist that would "really reflect and underscore the themes of Watch Dogs: Legion; speaking up for the oppressed and holding those in power accountable" Stormzy's name was one that kept coming up. The artist has even filmed a music video in the game for his latest song Rainfall, which will be part of his special mission entitled 'Fall on my Enemies'. These announcements were both accompanied by a new trailer for the game, which details the recruitment process and shows a bit more of how you'll be able to play as almost anyone in Watch Dogs: Legion's version of London, with certain more-difficult-to-find potential recruits having their own unique and special abilities. Check all three trailers for yourself below. Watch Dogs: Legion is set to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Stadia on October 29 followed by an Xbox Series S/X release on November 10 and a PlayStation 5 version at a date TBC.

  13. Ubisoft has announced the return of 2D side-scrolling beat-em-up Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: Complete Edition to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the film based on Bryan Lee O'Malley's popular comic book. Everything you loved about the original game is back, present and correct—and as the Complete Edition this version also comes with the Knives Chau and Wallace Wells add-on packs. All the incredible music from chiptune masters Anamanaguchi is here too, naturally. The game was originally released alongside the Edgar Wright film starring Michael Cera back in 2010, but was sadly delisted in 2014 after the licenses expired. Creator Bryan Lee O'Malley who had been teasing the project last month thanked the fans for their support in getting the game re-released, saying "Huge thank you to the fans who never shut up about the Scott Pilgrim game, not once, ever, even for one second to let me sleep. This game belongs to you. Now please get out of my house." You can check out the trailer for the game below or check out our original review from 2010 here. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game Complete Edition is set to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC and Google Stadia this "Holiday 2020". Source:VideoGamer
  14. Ubisoft has unveiled Immortals Fenyx Rising, which used to be called Gods and Monsters. It’s an action-adventure RPG set in ancient Greece, and seems to be a cross between The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The first thing to say, and the least helpful thing to say by quite some distance, is that it looks like a Ubisoft game. Check out the trailer: As you can see, there are both gods and monsters in abundance, which makes the name change that much more disappointing—and vaguely annoying. Immortals Fenyx Rising is out on December 3, 2020 on absolutely PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Switch, PC. Source:VideoGamer
  15. Ubisoft has unveiled the upcoming Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake, which is scheduled for release on January 21, 2001, on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. To judge from the trailer that aired during the Ubisoft Forward event, this is a ground-up remake, and boasts the prince’s original voice actor, Yuri Lowenthal. Check out the trailer: Our current moment has seen a strange profusion of remakes—as though the past were a shimmering pool in the desert. This one is more intriguing than most, given that we haven’t had a mainline Prince of Persia game since The Forgotten Sands, in 2010, and that Assassin’s Creed, which started life as a Prince of Persia game, has since soared into a blockbuster success. The Sands of Time also enjoyed the distinction of being a brilliant game, influencing the free-form combat that would become commonplace in games like Assassin’s Creed and Batman: Arkham Aslyum, and the platforming in series like Tomb Raider and Uncharted. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake, which is scheduled for release on January 21, 2001, on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Source:VideoGamer
  16. Developer Enhance has announced that Tetris Effect: Connected, the expanded release of its PS4 hit Tetris Effect, will release on Xbox Series S/X, Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass for PC on November 10. The expanded release was first revealed back in July, and adds new co-operative and competitive multiplayer modes to the musical puzzle title both online and offline. Naturally, the next gen version will also benefit from the increased power of the new consoles including support for 4K resolutions and higher framerates. As you've probably deduced if you've been keeping up with the news this week, the date coincides with the release of the Xbox Series S/X, confirming the game as a launch title for the new consoles. Tetris Effect: Connected is also an Xbox Smart Delivery title, meaning those who get it on Xbox One will be automatically upgraded to the Xbox Series S/X version at no extra cost when they get the new console. Tetris Effect: Connected is set to launch on Xbox Series S/X, Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass for PC on November 10 and will also be available through Xbox Game Pass for Console on the same day. The Connected content will also be coming to the original release on PlayStation 4, Epic Games Store and Oculus Quest versions as a free update in Summer 2021. Source:VideoGamer
  17. Fortnite's latest update for the ongoing Fortnite Nexus War chapter has seen the battle royale shooter welcome Iron Man's Stark Industries building to the map, allowing them to explore the iconic comic book location. Thanks to the new addition, players can now summon powers during the game based on several Avengers' abilities, including Thor's Mjolnir Strike and Iron Man's Repulsor Gauntlets to name but two. Of course, you'll want more things to use them on, and that's why Galactus himself has started sending enemy Drones to patrol the battlefield too. In addition to the map update, the latest patch—v14.10—will see a new mode coming to the game known as Marvel Knockout, which is similar to the previous Operation: Knockout LTE, only with the ability for your team to utilise superpowers to achieve victory. The update is live in Fortnite now, and you can check out a trailer below. It is worth noting that if you used to sign to the game using Apple, you'll no longer be able to after tomorrow as part of the ongoing dispute between Epic Games and Apple. Source:VideoGamer
  18. CD Projekt RED has announced the details of its next Night City Wire broadcast set to give us another glimpse into upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077. Following on from last month's broadcast, episode 3 will have a focus on the various gangs and factions that populate Night City, including the Maelstrom, the Moxes, 6th Street and more. The latest broadcast also promises us a look at the game's original score, giving us an earful of lovely mood-setting music as we make our way through the neon-drenched streets which we're also said to get a tour of during the stream. The Night City Wire broadcast will kick off at 6pm CEST—that's 5pm in the UK— on Friday, September 18. Cyberpunk 2077 meanwhile is set to launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 19, with next-gen versions to follow at a to-be-confirmed date sometime after. Source:VideoGamer
  19. It's not been the best couple of weeks for Ubisoft leaks, as it now appears that the oft-rumoured Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake has leaked on the Russian Uplay Store via a couple of banners. The images have since been taken down, but not before it was screenshotted by Resetera Forum user AndrewDTF who posted some of the screens to the online message board (as spotted by Eurogamer) and then posted to Twitter by user Nebellion which you can see below as well as what appears to be brief phonecam footage of what is presumably one of the game's cutscenes. It's almost certain then we'll indeed be seeing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake during tonight's Ubisoft Forward as previously rumoured, hopefully then we'll learn more about formats and exactly the extent of this remake. We'll be sure to let you know the skinny when we've had the official word. Source:VideoGamer
  20. Ubisoft has updated fans on the progress of upcoming pirate game Skull & Bones, letting fans know that the game's undergone a few changes since it was last seen. The update comes from the game's new Creative Director Elisabeth Pellen (confirming rumours from last month that she had taken over the team) who opened the blog post by thanking fans for their patience and confirming that "production on Skull & Bones has been in full swing with a new vision. Our teams at Ubisoft Singapore are fully committed to launching the game, as well as supporting it for many years to come." However, fans shouldn't expect to see the game anytime soon, with Pellen confirming the game definitely won't be at this evening's Ubisoft Forward event at 8PM UK time. In addressing the game's recent delays, Pellen said "We simply needed more time. We dreamt something bigger for Skull & Bones, and these ambitions naturally came with bigger challenges." "These difficulties resulted in necessary delays for our game. Critical questions needed to be addressed over the past several months such as: how do we modernize the classic pirate fantasy? How do we ensure a more immersive and visceral experience? How do we create cool and memorable moments in-game? For most of these questions to be answered, it was clear that we needed more development time." So it sounds like the game will essentially be getting a re-reveal —perhaps not too dissimilar to other Ubisoft property Gods & Monsters, which became Immortals Fenyx Rising and incidentally, we will be seeing during tonight's showcase. As for Skull & Bones, Pellen says the team is "proud of the work" they've done so far on the game, and promise fans they'll see more "at our comeback next year." Source:VideoGamer
  21. No More Heroes 3 won't make release this year and has slipped into 2021, creator Goichi 'Suda51' Suda has announced. In a tweet from the developer, Suda51 apologised to fans who had been hoping for more news since the game's reveal at last year's The Game Awards, saying that "all staff members at Grasshopper Manufacture have been working as hard as possible on developing the game in the hopes of releasing it in 2020, but the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have unfortunately proven to be a real body blow to our schedule, causing unforseen delays in development. Now that we have managed to get back on our feet with development, we have decided to focus on prioritising quality, and to therefore push back the final release date." In better news, Suda also revealed that the team has now brought on Darick Robertson on to the project as an illustrator. Robertson is probably best known for co-creating the original comic book series-turned Amazon Prime hit The Boys. He'll be providing some illustrations for the forthcoming game, with the first one you can see posted by Suda51 below the announcement Tweet. All being well, No More Heroes 3 is aiming to launch exclusively for the Nintendo Switch in 2021. Source:VideoGamer
  22. Ubisoft has confirmed that upcoming London-based open world action game Watch Dogs: Legion will be another addition to ever-growing stable of games that will be available on the launch of the Xbox Series S/X on November 10. Unlike stablemate Assassin's Creed Valhalla, however, the game won't be moving its main release date of the previous generation versions, mainly because in this instance that's in October and thus a couple of weeks before the release of the new console. To sweeten the pot a little bit though, as is the case with AC:V, if you buy the Xbox One version of the game, you'll be eligible for a free upgrade to the Xbox Series S/X edition on release. There's understandably no date for the PlayStation 5 version yet either outside of the 'Holiday 2020' window, although of course that's likely because at the time of writing Sony are yet to confirm the date of launch of that console. Watch Dogs: Legion is set to release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on October 29, with the Xbox Series S/X version to release on November 10 and a PlayStation 5 version sometime after.

  23. Activision and Treyarch have lifted the lid on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's multiplayer, showing off new maps and more during a dedicated live stream event that took place last night. The core of the multiplayer is based around "Deniable Operations" which will be a series of engagements taking place on maps that are "rooted in the game’s realistic and historical setting" and will take you to locations such as Uzbekistan, Moscow, Angola, Miami and even the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Each map is said to be "meticulously designed and based on authentic, real-world sources" with Treyarch's visual research teams photo-scanning thousands of objects and materials. Team Deathmatch, Search & Destroy, Domination, Kill Confirmed and Control modes all make a return, alongside new modes VIP Escort, Combined Arms, and Fireteam. VIP Escort is a 6v6 gametype where one player on each team is randomly selected to be the VIP and must be protected by their teammates. Combined Arms is a larger 12v12 gamemode taking place on larger maps with vehicles and will itself include a bunch of submodes within, such as Domination. Finally, Fireteam is bigger still with 40 players split into upto ten teams of four; with one gamemode in that configuration named so far: Dirty Bomb. We're told there'll be more information on that and other Fireteam modes closer to launch. Improvements to scorestreaks are promised and the series Create a Class system is now slot-based. New this time around too are the addition of Field Upgrades; items that can either give your team a boost or the opposing team a setback, to be earned in-game "with a cooldown that lasts after death." Finally Wildcards can be applied to loadouts, which can provide one of set of four benefits including more attachments, carry more perks or carry more tactical equipment. Naturally, there's going to be a beta for the multiplayer too, with the first weekend being a PlayStation exclusive. Those who've pre-ordered Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on PlayStation 4 will get to play the first weekend, on October 8 through October 9. Then the beta will be opened to everyone else on PlayStation 4 for October 10 until October 12. Following that weekend, a crossplay beta will take place for all formats —Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC— from October 15 until October 16 for those that have pre-ordered the game, followed by an Open Beta from October 17 until the beta concludes on October 19. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's release will also see changes to Call of Duty: Warzone, with the free-to-play game "interweaving some of Black Ops Cold War’s themes, weapons, and operators" upon Cold War's launch. Of course, your Call of Duty: Modern Warfare themed content earned before then will still carry over too, and still be usable by those who choose not to get Black Ops Cold War. There's plenty more information to be read over on the Activision blog, but for now check out the recording of the multiplayer reveal livestream as well as the multiplayer trailer for yourself below - stick around to the end of the trailer too for a tiny Zombies related tease. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is set for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on November 13 with Xbox Series S/X and PlayStation 5 versions to come soon after. Source:VideoGamer
  24. Codemasters has released a new gameplay video for the upcoming DiRT 5 and confirmed that the next generation versions of the game will launch in November. The gameplay video, which you can see below, shows off the new Ice Breaker event on Roosevelt Island, where a classic Ford and Purgeot rally cars face off against each other on the frozen East River. Up to 12 cars will be able to battle it out in the events across multiple locations and will require some careful control of your vehicle. It was also confirmed that DiRT 5 will release for Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X on those console's release date announced earlier today - November 10. If you buy the Xbox One version, you'll be eligible for a free upgrade to the next generation version, and the same will go for PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, despite the fact a date is still yet to be announced for Sony's new console. DiRT 5 will release on November 6 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC and the next gen Xbox Series S/X versions will release on November 10 (presumably with the PlayStation 5 version not far behind.)
