  1. Ghost of Tsushima's Legends Raid will launch on 30th October. Developer Sucker Punch explains that "this is the culmination of the story in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, bringing the fight directly to Iyo's realm". The Raid is divided into three chapters and requires a full team of four Ghosts, "as well as excellent coordination and communication". The developer also confirmed that there will not be matchmaking available, so players will have to arrange teams "ahead of time and be ready to jump in together", and recommends players have completed all story missions on harder difficulties to secu
  2. A new patch has reportedly improved the loading times of first party PlayStation 4 games The Last of Us: Remastered and Until Dawn. As spotted by our friends at VGC, while previously it could take over a minute for the initial loading screen of TLOU to load, reports now show that loading has been cut to just 14 seconds. Until Dawn, on the other hand, has seen its loading screens all but eradicated entirely. Here's a video by ElAnalistaDeBits showing the stark change in real time: Read more View the full article
  3. While I absolutely adore VR, as a huge fan of the battle royale genre, the lack of a decent last person standing shooter on the platform has always been a bit of a disappointment for me. There have been multiple attempts from a variety of developers in the past, but none have managed to capture the heart of VR enthusiasts for very long and they often have empty lobbies within weeks of release. Things could be very different for the newest contender on the block, BigBox VR's Population: One however, because I've been thoroughly enjoying my time with the game so far. Population: One released on
  4. Just days after catching a peek at Tom Holland on set as Uncharted lead Nathan Drake, a brief video has maybe given us our first sighting of Victor "Sully" Sullivan, too. In a post on his Instagram page in which he says "Don't ask... don't f*cking ask!", Mark Wahlberg is sporting an impressive 'tache, which many believe looks similar to that of Drake's companion and partner-in-crime. Others suggest he looks more like Freddie Mercury. Take a look and decide for yourself (thanks, Comic Book): Read more View the full article
  5. While many Apex Legends players have been engrossed in the shooter's latest time-limited event, Shadow Royale, others have noticed something unusual in the skies above both King's Canyon and World's Edge - a UFO. As spotted by Apex dataminer Shrugtal - who also revealed last week that an Arenas Mode might be on the way to Respawn's battle royale - it looks as though the unusual ship might have something to do with the imminent arrival of Season 7 and all-new Legend, Horizon. It also looks suspiciously similar to the Legacy of a Thief artwork. Here, take a peek: Read more View the full article
  6. The team behind a new chain of Atari Hotels has hired architecture firm Gensler to bring its vision of video game-inspired hotels to life. You'd be forgiven for forgetting about this - 2020 has been A Year and it's hard to remember life before lockdown - but we first revealed the new venture way back in January 2020. Now, however, the agency behind the hotels has posted an update that confirms plans for the chain are still going ahead and shared more concept art on how it envisions the exterior of the hotels will look. The first two hotels will be launched in Las Vegas, Nevada and Phoenix, Ari
  7. Oculus has endured a PR nightmare in recent weeks after it emerged its controversial Oculus Quest 2 Facebook account merge had turned some headsets into "paperweights". Well, that nightmare is set to continue with the revelation that deleting Facebook also deletes your Oculus purchases. Twitter user @CixLiv revealed the news, which was subsequently verified by UploadVR. Facebook confirmed to UploadVR that if you own the original Quest, Rift or Rift 2, don't plan to get another Oculus headset and haven't yet linked your Oculus and Facebook accounts, then deleting your unlinked Facebook account
  8. Snoop Dogg an Xbox Series X fridge. The American rapper posted a video of the fridge on Instagram before deleting the post, presumably for breaking some sort of marketing embargo. Still, the internet spotted it, and so now the fridge door is very much open. The fridge is designed to look exactly like an Xbox Series X, complete with white light X power button. It's pretty ominous looking. Inside is an Xbox-themed birthday cake (Snoop turned 49 a few days ago), what looks like an actual Xbox Series X console (I'm not sure you should be putting that in a fridge, Snoop, as well as gin and juice. O
  9. FIFA 21 has an odd and sometimes hilarious bug that sees a player jump into the air like Super Mario. I've seen plenty of clips of players improbably flying into the air in some wonderfully-timed situations. Here's a snippet: I'm not sure what's happening here. Is a particular skill move triggering the leap? A combination of button presses? Some glitch in the system powering the game? Read more View the full article
  10. The Brotherhood of Steel marches into Fallout 76 in December, Bethesda has announced. The famous Fallout faction hits the game as part of the Steel Dawn update. You can see them in action in the video below. This update adds new NPCs, new locations and new gear to the multiplayer-focused post-apocalyptic role-playing game, Bethesda said.

  11. The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta is over, but that didn't stop one intrepid fan from discovering a fantastic Easter egg hidden within its menu screen. Redditor Neur0r took a close look at the background images of the beta menu screen, taking screenshots and analysing them in Photoshop. It's hard to tell, but there are numbers displayed on the images for each mode as well as the store. These numbers, alongside the CIA stamp, sparked a thought in Neur0r's mind. As revealed in a post on the Black Ops Cold War subreddit, Neur0r ran these numbers through the CIA's website, specifically the
  12. Gears 5 will let you recast Marcus Fenix as Dave Bautista in the campaign. As revealed in a video, below, Bautista is an optional skin for Fenix in the campaign, but comes with voice work from the actor. Bautista is already a character available in the game's multiplayer. He arrives as an option for campaign on 10th November, when Gears 5 gets a big refresh to coincide with the launch of the Xbox Series X and S. Read more View the full article
  13. With the next generation of consoles under a month away, the various products set to be sold are popping up across the world. Last night various members of the US media revealed they had a PlayStation 5 in tow, showing off the box it comes in. The PS5 box is as huge as you'd expect of something that needs to fit Sony's gargantuan console inside. Read more View the full article
  14. Xbox boss Phil Spencer has teased the launch of streaming sticks for xCloud, as well as a new tier of Xbox Game Pass membership. In an interview with Stratechery (paywall), Spencer said streaming sticks could be used to plug into TVs in order to play games via xCloud. "I think you're going to see lower priced hardware as part of our ecosystem when you think about streaming sticks and other things that somebody might want to just go plug into their TV and go play via xCloud," Spencer said (via The Verge).

  15. It's awful when you have a clown on your team, isn't it? I spent most of this morning fighting alongside two of the worst players I have ever encountered. We were at the bottom of a hill and the horde was descending. Again and again my team-mates proved unable to thin the ranks. The simplest things were beyond them. Again and again we were overwhelmed. And the worst thing? Those other two players were both me. Echos! One of the great tricks of Wicca is the ability to rewind time and then fight alongside an echo of yourself. At heart, Wicca's a tower defence game, even if it never truly feels l

  17. Developer Hinterland's superb post-apocalyptic survival game The Long Dark - which sees players prowling its snowy wilderness with nothing but a stash of rapidly dwindling resources and invariably soggy underpants - is already a wonderfully tense experience. This year, however, Hinterland is aiming to go from tense to terrifying as part of its new Escape the Darkwalker Halloween event. Escape the Darkwalker is set to run from next Thursday, 29th October, to 12th November, and replaces the Four Days of Night Halloween event that has been an annual fixture for The Long Dark since its debut in 20
  18. Activision has unveiled Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War's co-operative Zombies Onslaught mode, which, in news sure to send eyeballs a-swivelling, is confirmed to be a timed PlayStation exclusive that won't be heading to other platforms for a full year. Zombies Onslaught is separate to this year's main Zombies narrative - Die Maschine, which is still coming to all platforms at launch - and is described as a "two-person, fast-paced" co-op experience that drops participants, complete with their custom load-outs, onto one of several locations derived from Cold War's various multiplayer maps. He
  19. Respawn Entertainment's free-to-play battle royale shooter Apex Legends will, at long last, be making its way to Steam on 4th November. Switch owners eagerly awaiting the game's arrival, however, will unfortunately need to wait a little longer, with the developer now confirming a delay on Nintendo's platform. Respawn shared Apex Legends' 4th November launch on Steam - which coincides with the arrival of Season 7 - in a new post on its website. The developer also offered a reminder that all account progression and unlocks will carry over between Steam and Origin, should anyone be gripped with t
  20. It's no secret that Among Us has been struggling with hacking issues in recent weeks, as the sudden popularity of the game has also opened the floodgates to cheaters. Yet it seems things took a particularly dramatic turn last night, as hundreds of players suddenly found their in-game chats spammed with messages telling them to subscribe to a YouTube channel. In the early hours of the morning, players reported their games were filled with messages telling them to subscribe to a YouTube channel called Eris Loris. Many messages told players their device had been hacked, or threatened to "kill" t
  21. Developer Tarsier's original Little Nightmares was a macabre delight, a gorgeously wrought puzzle-platformer queasily hovering somewhere between dark fairy tale adorable and deeply unsettling; however, the studio has leaned hard on the latter for its latest look at highly anticipated sequel Little Nightmares 2, which is due to arrive in February next year. Although Tarsier calls Little Nightmares 2 a sequel, the developer's so far been a little cagey when it comes to placing its action within the series' timeline. What we do know, however, is that it once again stars Six - the yellow raincoat
  22. As we inch ever closer to the release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, more news emerges about how the consoles work - and in some cases don't work. And so, your Eurogamer next-gen news cast team is here with another video to review the week that was. As always, there is lots to talk about! In this week's show, we're chatting about the PS5's massive fan, which Sony can tweak via online updates; the media apps that will be on the console at launch; next-gen console boxes - as in, the boxes they're sold in; the cost of next-gen games, which is something I've talked about before in a previ

  25. The Sega Mega Drive Mini has dropped to one of the lowest prices we've seen so far over at online department store Very. The well-reviewed retro console can now be picked up for £43 - that's slightly under £20 less than its usual price of £60. This latest offer is even better than the price cut we saw on the Mega Drive Mini over Prime Day. Just last week it was £50 - and that seemed like a great price at the time!
