The Elder Scrolls: Legends Has Been Put On Indefinite Hold

Matthew Byrd Dec 9, 2019

Bethesda Ccg title The Elder Scrolls: Legends will not receive future major content updates for the foreseeable future.

Bethesda is effectively shutting down further development of their Ccg title The Elder Scrolls: Legends.

"We would like to provide an update on Legends in regard to new content," says Bethesda via a Reddit post. "Our previous roadmap indicated we would be releasing one more set this year. We decided to put any new content development or releases on hold for the foreseeable future. This decision will not in any way affect the release and development of Gaea’s Asia-specific version of Legends, which is operated separately, but will inform our decisions on content and feature development going forward."

Bethesda also announced that current Legends players will receive some free cards as a kind of "thank you" reward and confirmed that you will still be able to play Legends,

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Scene to Debut During Fortnite Event

Matthew Byrd Dec 9, 2019

A new clip from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be revealed at Fortnite's in-game theater.

Fortnite will host a special screening of a new clip from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

According to in-game posters spread throughout Fortnite's map, this premiere will begin at Risky Reels drive-in theater at 1:30 pm Est on December 14th. The actual clip apparently won't be screened until about 30 minutes later, so you should have plenty of time to find a seat and settle in. Well...assuming the servers hold. It's also been suggested that director J.J. Abrams will make a cameo in some way. 

The Fortnite team hasn't exactly shied away from using their game as an ad platform. Along with the usual array of in-game events featuring everything from Avengers characters and Batman to Pennywise and Borderlands, we've seen larger scale Fortnite in-game promotions similar to this upcoming screening.

Xbox Rumor Hints at All-Digital Next-Gen Console

Matthew Byrd Dec 5, 2019

Microsoft is reportedly still working on a disc-less next-gen Xbox.

A new report by Kotaku suggests that Microsoft is still working on a disc-less version of Xbox Scarlett. 

As the report notes, there seems to be a bit of confusion regarding this development. The earliest rumors regarding Microsoft's next-gen plans suggested that Microsoft was working on a flagship premium next-gen console as well as a disc-less version of that same device that would serve as an all-digital (possibly "budget") alternative to Scarlett. However, Microsoft's wording of the Scarlett reveal seemed to suggest that it was the one and only next-gen console they were developing. 

Now, though, sources reportedly close to the development of Microsoft's next-gen plans are reporting that the company is indeed working on a disc-less next-gen Xbox that is currently codenamed "Lockhart." 

Details regarding Lockhart seem to still be up in the air, but it

The Outlast Trials: First Details for Co-Op Horror Spin-Off

Matthew Byrd Dec 4, 2019

The Outlast Trials will take the Outlast series in an interesting new gameplay direction.

Developer Red Barrels is working on a new Outlast game called The Outlast Trials.

"Whilst not a direct sequel to the other critically acclaimed Outlast titles in the series, The Outlast Trials will be set in the same thrilling universe: more precisely, right in the middle of the Cold War era," Red Barrels says of the title via a recent press release. "The Outlast Trials will allow players to face the horrors of the trials by themselves or cooperate with up to 3 other test subjects. After all, it’s always better to shit your pants with some friends!"

Sadly, that description and a single photo that looks more like a piece of concept art are really all we have to go on at the moment in regards to the finer points of the game.

PlayStation Has No Plans For Handheld Vita Successor

Matthew Byrd Dec 4, 2019

A recent quote suggests that the PlayStation team is not interested in getting back into the handheld game.

In what should not come as a surprise to anyone, Sony has indicated they are no longer interested in producing handheld gaming devices.

“PlayStation Vita was brilliant in many ways, and the actual gaming experience was great, but clearly it’s a business that we’re no longer in now,” said Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, in an interview with Game Informer. Ryan did not expand on that statement, but his wording seems to make it pretty clear that the PlayStation team doesn't plan on reviving the Vita brand anytime soon.

Interestingly, former PlayStation CEO John Kodera previously hinted that the PlayStation team was interested in "exploring what our customers want from portable" and hinted at the brand's interest in not "separating portable gaming from consoles.

Starship Troopers Strategy Game Releasing in 2020

Matthew Byrd Dec 3, 2019

Starship Troopers - Terran Command looks to capture the greatness of the film, but will it be able to?

We're happy to deliver the surprising news that a new Starship Troopers game is set to be released in 2020.

It's called Starship Troopers - Terran Command, and developer The Aristocrats promises that it will deliver a strategy gaming experience that combines “classic real-time mechanics, tower defense and tactical deployment of units.” The basic premise sees you defend a colony of humans against attacking arachnid forces using a variety of tactics. While that famous "base invasion" scene from Starship Troopers combined with some of what Terran Command's developers are saying leads us to suspect that this game will play similarly to "defense" titles like They Are Billions, it sounds like the final product may afford you a bit more creative freedom in terms of how you deal with the game's numerous enemies.

Super Mario Maker 2 Update Lets You Play as Zelda's Link

Matthew Byrd Dec 3, 2019

Super Mario Maker 2 meets The Legend of Zelda in this incredible new update.

You'll soon be able to play as Link in Super Mario Maker 2. Well...kind of. 

On December 5, Super Mario Maker 2 will receive a Zelda-themed update that adds a Master Sword power-up to the game. The Master Sword has been re-designed to adhere to the classic Mario art style and will turn the player into Link (or a close approximation of the classic hero) when it is picked up. Naturally, you'll be able to add the sword to any custom maps you create. 

Interestingly, this power-up offers more than a mere cosmetic transformation. Essentially, it allows you to play as Link with all that entails. That means you'll have access to a sword as well as a shield that will allow you to block attacks and projectiles, as well as bows and bombs for

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Event Features Resident Evil Characters

Matthew Byrd Nov 27, 2019

A special Super Smash Bros. event will see some famous Resident Evil characters pop in for a cameo.

Some major Resident Evil characters are set to make a somewhat surprising cameo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. 

Yes, Chris Redfield, Leon Kennedy, Albert Wesker, and Jill Valentine will all appear in an upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate spirit event that's set to run for five days starting on November 29. The four characters will appear as in-game spirits who are set to replace existing Pokemon spirits for the duration of the event. Much like the game's other spirits, you will have to complete a series of challenges in order to unlock them. 

While that sadly means that none of the included Resident Evil characters will actually be playable, this still feels like a significant crossover event that demonstrates both Capcom's willingness to loan the Resident Evil characters to the Smash Bros.

Call of Duty: Mobile - Zombie Mode Release Date Announced

Matthew Byrd Nov 22, 2019

Call of Duty: Mobile is getting a zombie mode of its very own.

Try to act shocked, but Call of Duty: Mobile is getting a zombies mode. 

This information comes from a Reddit post made by the Call of Duty: Mobile team which not only confirms that a zombie mode is coming to the title but at what time it will be released for different regions.

You should check out the full release schedule if you want to know exactly when your region is going to be able to access the latest Call of Duty: Mobile update, but the fun starts today (November 22) for those on the U.S. west coast who will be able to access the new content starting at 9 p.m. It will then be released to other supporting regions later on, but despite the apparent time differences, most regions should be able to

Half-Life: Alyx Will be About as Long as Half-Life 2

Matthew Byrd Nov 22, 2019

It sounds like Half-Life: Alyx Will be slightly longer than your average Vr game.

If you're worried that Half-Life: Alyx is going to be more of a Vr tech demo than a full game, we've got some good news for you.

“This isn’t a spinoff or a side story, or anything of the sort,” says Half-Life: Alyx programmer Robin Walker in an interview with IGN. "It’s a full-scale campaign - repeated playtest results indicate it’s about the same length as Half-Life 2.”

While Walker says that this is more than a spinoff, it's worth noting that it sounds like the Half-Life team did not initially intend for Alyx to be a proper Half-Life game.

"We didn’t set out to make a Half-Life game,” says Walker. "Like many game developers, we often use our previous games to experiment with new design ideas. So in this case,

World of Warcraft Classic: Battlegrounds Coming in December

Matthew Byrd Nov 20, 2019

World of Warcraft Classic's beloved Battlegrounds are being released early.

Two World of Warcraft Classic Battlegrounds are being released ahead of schedule.

"Warsong Gulch and Alterac Valley will open in WoW Classic simultaneously on all realms the week of December 10," says Blizzard via a new forum post. "At the same time, Elemental Invasions will occur in Kalimdor, with Blazing, Thundering, Watery, and Whirling Invaders appearing in Un’goro Crater, Azshara, Winterspring, and Silithus respectively."

For those who don't know, Battlegrounds are essentially competitive multiplayer maps within the World of Warcraft universe. They allow people to queue into competitive matches that see Horde and Alliance teams compete to complete various objectives. Otherwise, the only way that players can boost their PvP rank is by participating in world PvP across the game's sizeable map. While Blizzard doesn't outright say so, it really feels like the problems with world PvP

Saints Row 5 Will Be Revealed in 2020

Matthew Byrd Nov 20, 2019

Saints Row 5 is on the horizon, but can it restore glory to the franchise?

Koch Media CEO Klemens Kundratitz has confirmed that a new Saints Row game will be revealed in 2020.

“Saints Row is very close to our hearts, and we'll talk about it next year,” Kundratitz says in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz. "For the time being, we just wanted to get the word out that it's coming and it's going to be great.”

"It's going to be great" is a pretty vague promise so far as actual information goes. It also doesn't address certain elephants in the room as it concerns the state of the Saints Row franchise. Specifically, we're talking about the negative reception of the Saints Row spin-off Agents of Mayhem and how its relative failures may have resulted in layoffs at developer Volition.

So far as that goes, Kundratitz says that Koch

Tell Me Why: Release Date and Trailer

Matthew Byrd Nov 20, 2019

The studio behind Life is Strange returns with a fascinating project called Tell Me Why.

Dontnod Entertainment (developers of Life is Strange and Vampyr) has announced that their next game will be an Xbox and PC exclusive called Tell Me Why.

Tell Me Why focuses on twins Tyler and Alyson Ronan as they navigate a small town in Alaska in order to unravel the mysteries of their past. The nature of those mysteries remains...err...mysterious, but the game's description hints that some of them will revolve around the pair's "loving but troubled childhood."

Gameplay-wise, the hook of this adventure seems to be a Rashomon-esque storytelling device that sees players witness slightly different interpretations of events in the pair's past. Players will need to choose which version of events to believe, which will not only affect the course of the game's narrative but may also impact the nature of the twins' relationship.

Hearthstone Battlegrounds Update Adds New Heroes

Matthew Byrd Nov 19, 2019

Hearthstone's new Battlegrounds mode just got a surprise update that adds features quite a bit of content.

The latest update to Hearthstone's Battlegrounds mode adds new heroes to the game and balances some of the mode's weaker and stronger minions. 

The highlight of this update sees four new heroes join Battlegrounds and four old heroes be rotated out of the game. The four new heroes each come equipped with their own hero powers which should help negate the sting of the hero powers lost by the four rotating heroes temporarily exiting the game. 

Yes, we said temporarily. This latest patch indicates that Blizzard intends on adding new heroes to the game and rotating some heroes out of the mode, but it also notes that some heroes may eventually be added back into the game. It doesn't sound like there's a specific timetable or plan in place that

Everwild: First Trailer for Rare's Next Game

Matthew Byrd Nov 19, 2019

Developer Rare is working on a mysterious (and beautiful) new game known as Everwild.

Legendary (if somewhat controversial) game developer Rare has announced that their next game will be a mysterious new project known as Everwild. 

What is Everwild? Well, it's the next game from Rare. We're not trying to be cute here, but the first trailer for the game and what little has been said about it thus far doesn't exactly offer a lot in the way of concrete details. 

However, there's plenty of room for speculation as it concerns what, exactly, we can expect from this title. It certainly seems that the title will emphasize a nature theme and mystical elements. Nearly every shot in the trailer takes place in what seems to be a massive forest setting, but the design of the creatures that inhabit this land certainly indicates that this forest doesn't exist

Anthem Rumor Suggests That BioWare Is Redesigning the Game

Matthew Byrd Nov 19, 2019

A new report hints that BioWare is working on a significant Anthem overhaul.

A report from Kotaku's Jason Schreier suggests that BioWare is looking to essentially reboot Anthem via some significant changes to the game. 

The report is quick to note that sources close to this story suggest that even BioWare (and parent company EA) isn't entirely sure what these changes are going to look like or how they will be released. Early speculation suggests that Anthem will either benefit from a massive expansion that adds a ton of new content and changes to the game (the report compares that hypothetical expansion to Destiny's Taken King expansion), a series of updates designed to gradually improve the Anthem experience, or even a new release that is being referred to as Anthem Next or Anthem 2.0.

Distribution aside, the more interesting question at this time is "How will BioWare improve Anthem?

Grounded: Release Date and Trailer For Obsidian's Next Game

Matthew Byrd Nov 19, 2019

Obsidian next title is a (mostly) Xbox exclusive co-op survival game called Grounded.

Obsidian Entertainment has revealed that their next project is a survival game called Grounded.

Grounded sees players assume the role of a tiny human that has been shrunken to roughly the "size of an ant" and must now survive the perils of your average backyard. Yes, that means that it's essentially Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, the video game. Rather than ape the plot of that film, though, players in Grounded will participate in pre-determined narrative adventures alongside player-driven content. 

Gameplay will seemingly primarily consist of building bases, scrounging for resources, and combating various hostile elements, but it's not entirely clear how all of these elements will come together. For instance, the PvE vs. PvP ratio hasn't been firmly established at this time. Actually, it's not entirely clear if there will be a PvP

Nic Cage Fights Evil Amusement Park Characters in New Movie

Kirsten Howard Oct 30, 2019

Cage will play an amusement park janitor who has a very bad night in Wally's Wonderland

Barely a week goes by here at Den of Geek where we don't hear about a new Nicolas Cage movie in the works. In recent months, we've had to emotionally process Pig, a movie where Cage's prize truffle-hunting pig is stolen and he sets out on a journey to recover her. There's Primal, set for release very soon, and in which Cage stars as a big game hunter trapped on a boat with a cargo full of wild animals released by an assassin. And now, there's Wally's Wonderland, a new project that will see Cage trapped once again, but this time in an amusement park where all the animatronic characters have come to life and have turned evil for reasons.

Kevin Lewis (The Drop) will direct Wally's Wonderland, per Deadline, from

How The Outer Worlds Tackles Difficulty

Matthew Byrd Oct 21, 2019

The Outer Worlds will let you wander into various forms of trouble that include the game's equivalent of Deathclaws.

In many ways, The Outer Worlds is a tribute to classic RPGs, especially in the way it tackles difficulty. The RPGs of old often let you enter high-level areas before you were supposed to and would force you to learn that you were doing something wrong by killing you over and over again. It's a design concept that lives on in games like Dark Souls and even The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. 

So will The Outer Worlds let you get in over your head like its predecessors? 

"Oh absolutely," says Brian Heins, senior designer on The Outer Worlds, in an interview with Den of Geek. "Recently, we had a bunch of press playing through the beginning of the game. There were a few people who
