The Mega Man Movie Has Found Its Directors And Writers, Report Says

http://ifttt.com/images/no_image_card.png

The previously announced Mega Man film is moving forward, as it’s now been reported that the directors of the documentary Catfish will direct the video game movie. Those directors as Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman; they also made Paranormal Activity 3 and 4.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Joost and Schulman are in “final negotiations” with film studio Fox to write and direct the untitled Mega Man film.

Mega Man–known as Rock Man in Japan–debuted in 1987’s Mega Man, an action-platformer for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Since then he has gone on to star in numerous new entries in the main series, as well as spinoffs.

There is no word yet on what the story would be for the film or which actors might star in it. It’s also unclear if it’s live-action or animated.

The next Mega Man game is this year’s Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It comes with Mega Man 7-10 and a new Challenge Mode that remixes stages and lets you compete against others via online leaderboards.

Game Of Thrones Creators Announce Their New HBO Show

https://static.gamespot.com/uploads/scale_super/1557/15576725/3262182-david-benioff-e-db-weiss-game-of-thrones-1.jpg

Game of Thrones still has another season to go after the current one, but showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss have announced their next show. The pair will return to HBO for Confederate, a dramatic imagining of an alternate future America that sounds every bit as provocative as their fantasy hit.

No Caption Provided

Benioff and Weiss will begin production on Confederate once work on the final season of Game of Thrones is completed. HBO have released a synopsis for the new show, which reads: “Confederate chronicles the events leading to the Third American Civil War. The series takes place in an alternate timeline, where the southern states have successfully seceded from the Union, giving rise to a nation in which slavery remains legal and has evolved into a modern institution.

“The story follows a broad swath of characters on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Demilitarized Zone–freedom fighters, slave hunters, politicians, abolitionists, journalists, the executives of a slave-holding conglomerate and the families of people in their thrall.”

In a statement, Benioff and Weiss explained that the concept for Confederate had existed for some time, and was originally considered for a movie. “We have discussed Confederate for years, originally as a concept for a feature film,” they said. “But our experience on Thrones has convinced us that no one provides a bigger, better storytelling canvas than HBO. There won’t be dragons or White Walkers in this series, but we are creating a world.”

Benioff and Weiss will serve as writers and showrunners on Confederate. It currently has no premiere date, but with Season 8 of Game of Thrones yet to even start production, don’t expect it for at least a couple of years. There are also several Game of Thrones spinoffs in the works, but Benioff and Weiss will not be heavily involved in these.

Nintendo Switch Getting Major League Baseball Game RBI Baseball 17

http://ifttt.com/images/no_image_card.png

The Nintendo Switch already has an officially licensed basketball game in the form of NBA Playgrounds. NBA 2K18 and a version of FIFA 18 are coming later this year. Now, another officially licensed sports game has been announced for the console.

Major League Baseball announced that R.B.I. Baseball 17 is launching for Switch on September 5. The company said in a press release that this is particularly notable since it’ll become the first licensed pro sports game to be available at retail for the Switch (NBA Playgrounds is a digital-exclusive, apparently).

R.B.I. Baseball 17 is already available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For the Switch version, you can play at home or on the go, though there is no word yet on what differences there might be between the Switch version and the others.

Unlike Sony’s MLB The Show series, R.B.I. Baseball is a more stripped-down, arcade style take on pro baseball. Nine-inning games can be completed in under 20 minutes, the developers say, and all 30 MLB parks are included and teams are updated with the latest roster of players.

R.B.I. Baseball 17 for Switch will launch on September 5, priced at $30.

You Can Watch Pokemon Go’s First Live Event On Twitch

https://static.gamespot.com/uploads/scale_super/1578/15787979/3259509-pokemon+go+fest+infograph.jpg

The first official Pokemon Go live event kicks off this weekend in Chicago, but fans who aren’t able to attend can still join the festivities. Today on Twitter, Niantic announced that the Pokemon Go Fest event will be livestreamed this Saturday, July 22, on Twitch.

While the developer hasn’t revealed just when the stream will begin, the Pokemon Go Fest event begins at 8 AM PT/11 AM ET. Attendees are able to participate in a variety of activities, including three “Challenge Windows” that have players working together to catch a certain amount of Pokemon. These Challenge Windows are open to all Pokemon Go players around the globe, so even if you can’t make the event in-person, you can still take part in its activities. If players successfully complete the challenges, they’ll unlock bonus perks for all users to enjoy.

No Caption Provided

Pokemon Go Fest is only the first official live event that Niantic has planned for the popular mobile game. That same weekend, players in the UK will be able to participate in a different event hosted in the historic city of Chester. Additionally, Safari Zone events will be held across Europe throughout the summer at select Unibail-Rodamco shopping centers. These events give fans a chance to capture some rare monsters, including ones that don’t normally appear in the region. You can find more details and a list of participating cities here.

Ahead of this weekend’s event, Niantic has begun rolling out a new update for Pokemon Go. While not as substantial as the one that added Raid Battles to the game, today’s update makes some improvements, such as giving players the ability to feed their Gym Pokemon from afar. Players also still have a few more days to catch a special Pikachu as part of Pokemon Go’s in-game anniversary event, which ends on July 24.

Pokemon Go Update Rolling Out Now, Ahead Of The Upcoming Event

https://static.gamespot.com/uploads/scale_super/123/1239113/3262175-go.jpg

Pokemon Go developer Niantic has announced the details of the latest update for its popular mobile game. While not a major one on par with the recent update that introduced Raids, it does make some improvements.

The update is rolling out now and brings the Android version to version 0.69.0 and iOS to 1.39.0. The Pokemon Collection screen’s search functionality has been improved, while Pokemon info screens will now house an icon that shows how it was caught.

No Caption Provided

In terms of Gyms, players no longer have to return to one in order to feed berries to their Pokemon, which was a recent change. Now, you can go to a Pokemon’s info screen and feed them berries from afar, although doing so is “less effective” than actually visiting the Gym. Additionally, you’ll now be able to spin a Gym’s Photo Disc right after finishing a Raid.

The rest of the update deals primarily with fixing various issues and bugs; some of these are outlined in the patch notes below. This patch comes just prior to the start of the next big Pokemon event, which takes the form of a live Pokemon Go Fest event in Chicago (and will be followed by events elsewhere in the world). Those who can’t make it in person can still participate in their own way, though.

Pokemon Go Update 1.39.0 (iOS) / 0.69.0 (Android) Patch Notes

  • Added icons to the Pokemon information screen to indicate how the Pokemon was caught.
  • Added the ability for Trainers to spin the Photo Disc at a Gym after completing a Raid Battle.
  • Added the ability for Trainers to send Berries to their Pokemon defending Gyms through the Pokemon info screen when they are not nearby. Motivation regained will be less effective through this method.
  • Added the ability for Trainers to give Berries to Pokemon defending Gyms if their motivation meter is full.
  • Improved Pokemon Collection screen search functionality.
  • Fixed an issue where Trainers were unable to complete Raid Battles started before time expired on the map view.
  • Fixed an issue where Pokemon are not properly returned to their Trainer after defending a Gym.
  • Various bug fixes.

Do the Voidwalk.

Destiny 2‘s closed beta has provided us a plethora of details about the game. That includes more information about the new subclasses–with new Supers–among many other additions.

But even the existing subclasses are seeing some changes for the sequel. In this gallery, we’ve rounded up images of every skill for the Warlock’s Voidwalker subclass, which returns from the first game. While many aspects of it will be familiar to returning players, there are some differences, such as the ability to heal allies.

Ark: Survival Evolved Dev Reverses Course, Won’t Wipe PvP Servers After All

http://ifttt.com/images/no_image_card.png

It was just this week that Studio Wildcard announced that it would be wiping Ark: Survival Evolved‘s player vs. player servers ahead of the game’s official release. Today, though, the developer completely changed course, saying that it would preserve those servers after all.

According to Eurogamer, Studio Wildcard defended the decision to wipe the servers earlier this week by saying that an item duplication bug had caused the competitive multiplayer mode to become essentially broken. Lead designer Jeremy Stieglitz stated that a wipe was essential to making sure that the game was ready for launch. “We feel if we’re going to have a competitive environment that is fair to old players and new players, we can’t have that kind of legacy craziness in there,” he told Eurogamer.

However, in a press release sent out today, Studio Wildcard reversed its position and promised that no reset will occur. Players will be able to keep their characters after all. “Studio Wildcard reconfirmed its commitment to no server wipe–despite a recent rash of cheating and hacking within the game,” the developer wrote. “In addition to continuing to operate the legacy servers, on launch date the studio will roll out a fresh cluster network of servers running new code and infrastructure explicitly designed to prevent such issues from occurring in the future.”

This is a pretty unusual change of course for a high-profile game like Ark, especially in such a short time span. But Studio Wildcard doesn’t have much time left before the game launches. Although it has been in Early Access for quite a while, Ark will be officially released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 8.

Early access players were able to pick Ark up for only $30 on PC, but it’s now a $60 game across all platforms. PS4 and Xbox One players can also buy the $100 Explorer’s Edition, which comes with a season pass. There’s also the $160 Limited Collector’s Edition, which includes the season pass, a leather-bound Explorer’s notebook, an Ark necklace, a cloth map of the game’s island, a poster of the development team, and a copy of the official soundtrack.

Big Doom Update Unlocks DLC For All, Makes Welcome Revamp To Multiplayer Systems

https://static.gamespot.com/uploads/original/123/1239113/3262119-doom.jpg

Doom was acclaimed upon its release last year, but it was in large part due to its stellar campaign. Its multiplayer component was widely regarded as the weaker of the two components, but a new update has introduced some very welcome-sounding improvements.

Most notably, Bethesda and id Software are doing away with Doom’s $40 season pass and unlocking its multiplayer DLC for all players. That means that everyone who owns the game–or anyone who now picks it up–will get their hands on nine additional maps, three guns, three demons, and new armor and equipment options for free. You can see a trailer for the third and final DLC pack above.

Another change addresses player complaints about the Hack Module system, which has been removed in favor of a new Runes system. Previously, Hack Modules were consumable items you could use to obtain various boosts for a limited time. Now, Runes are simply abilities or perks you earn and are then able to equip as part of your loadout.

Multiplayer progression has been revamped as well. Rather than unlocking new things randomly, everything is tied to a specific schedule of sorts. That means you’ll get your hands on specific guns, demons, equipment, and customization options by reaching certain levels or completing specific tasks. This gives you some level of control, letting you seek out a specific piece of gear that you might want.

Existing players will see their levels reset, but that doesn’t mean they have to abandon everything they’ve unlocked. Players will be given a choice of retaining their unlocks or resetting their progress so that they can begin unlocking everything from scratch, in the same way that a new player now does. Those who have played the game prior to this update will get a special badge to acknowledge their accomplishments, while those who have reached the level cap will get a special Slayer badge.

Finally, the in-game HUD has been reworked to provide “better callouts for challenges, awards and scoring,” according to a blog post by game director Marty Stratton. “The kill card has been completely revised to provide players a more clear and accurate account of their demise, including not just who killed them but also the players, weapon types, and damage that combined to kill them.” Other changes are also present throughout the menus and post-match summary screens.

No Caption Provided

Following the release of today’s update, version 6.66, those who haven’t yet picked up the game will soon be able to try it for free. A free play event will begin on all platforms over the remainder of the month, while the game itself will be on sale for just $15/£12/AU$18 during the free promotion. The free weekend events will include the first two levels of the campaign along with the full multiplayer and SnapMap modes. Here’s when the free weekend is live on each platform:

  • Xbox One: July 20 (9 AM PT/12 PM ET) – July 23 (9 AM PT/12 PM ET)
  • PC: July 20 (10 AM PT/1 PM ET) – July 23 (1 PM PT/4 PM ET)
  • PS4: July 27 (9 AM PT/12 PM ET) – July 30 (9 AM PT/12 PM ET)

Full patch notes follow below.
