Shadow Warrior 3 Coming In 2021

With a transition to the next generation of consoles ahead of us, Shadow Warrior may not be on the top of everyone's mind. However, today publisher Devolver Digital and developer Flying Wild Hog are reminding gamers about this FPS series with an announcement trailer revealing that Shadow Warrior 3 is in the works. 

The cinematic trailer (above) is just a teaser, with a look at full gameplay coming on July 11. Shadow Warrior 3 releases in 2021.

Though PC is the only officially announced platform right now, the odds of the game coming to consoles are good.  Shadow Warrior and Shadow Warrior 2 (our review) released on PS4 and Xbox One, so we'll likely hear more about other platforms further down the road.

Pokémon GO Fest Releases Commercial Directed By Rian Johnson

Hollywood director Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Knives Out) is apparently a big Pokémon GO fan, and to prove it, he recently directed a commercial for the upcoming Pokémon GO Fest. The commercial itself doesn't feature any mind-blowing revelations, but hey, Johnson only had about 30 seconds to work with. 

“Pokémon GO has kept me engaged with my friends remotely as I've been practicing physical distancing these past few months,” said Johnson. “As a longtime Pokémon trainer, it was a real pleasure working with Niantic on this spot. It was a new experience for me to direct a production remotely, and I enjoyed the highly collaborative process and think we put together a fun and upbeat commercial that fans will enjoy.”

Pokémon GO Fest is happening on July 25 and 26 and players will be able to participate by joining virtual team lounges from anywhere in the world. Here's what you should expect from the fest

Lego Invites You To Build Star Wars Art

Lego Invites You To Build Star Wars Art

Lego Art is a new line of sets that allow you to build artwork, specifically portraits. The first series consists of sets for Star Wars: The Sith, Iron Man, The Beatles, and Andy Warhol.

If you purchase the Star Wars: The Sith set, you can construct a 2D portrait of one of three Sith Lords (Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, and Darth Maul). The pieces in the box let you make any one you want. If you want to display all three of them at once, you need to buy three sets (which sell for $119.99 each). If you do fork out the cash for all three, that opens up a fourth building option: a larger image of Darth Vader.

You can do the same thing with the Iron Man set to make a fourth image of him in action. In any set you are tasked to build both the portrait and frame. The portrait is made up entirely of circular colored pieces. The Star Wars set consists of 3,406 pieces. The suggested building age is 18-plus. Lego is currently listing a September 1 release date for all four options. You can find out more about the sets at LEGO's official site, and take a closer look at them in the gallery below:

Kick Off The Weekend With This Destroy All Humans! Trailer

Are you ready to fire up the grill for some perfect burgers or brats doused with delectable mustard? Maybe gearing up to fry up some wings and drummies? Or maybe you're just going to check out some fireworks. All of this with the proper social distancing of course. I dunno. Maybe just watch Independence Day instead. That movie is pretty awesome. Remember Mars Attacks!? I didn't like that movie until I saw it for the third time. Now I appreciate its campy comedy.

If you're doing all or none of these things, that's cool - we've got a "Dependence Day" trailer from the upcoming Destroy All Humans! remake for you to check out.

Unfortunately, the game won't be available this weekend, but it's coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on July 28. Observe the chaotic mischief below as we explore the terrifying but humorous possibility of an alien invasion in 1950s America. Take your flying saucer out for a spin!

Drake Hollow Delayed To Undetermined Launch Date

Today brought word that Drake Hollow is pushing out from a planned launch on July 17. Unfortunately, the team was not able to offer a new date at this time, but is promising to share that news when it can.

The news came over Twitter from Molasses Flood studio director, Forrest Dowling, who couldn't share clear details of why the delay is happening, but did share that the reasons “are technical, boring, complicated to explain, and all under NDA anyway.”

Drake Hollow is a cooperative village-builder with action elements, and includes both a sandbox mode and a more narrative-oriented campaign. The game is headed to Xbox One and PC. Developer The Molasses Flood previously created the well-receieved The Flame in the Flood.

Clash Royale Is Getting PvE Content And Clan Wars 2

Clash Royale is inviting clans on a new adventure. In Clan Wars II, you and your friends will sail down a river to collect rewards for you and the entire clan. The ultimate prize is a chest at the end of the river. As your set sail, you'll run into new game types, including Clash Royale's first version of PvE, which pushes you to take down defenses on a boat. Clan Wars II does away with collection day, and you instead use your own cards for its modes Duels, Boat Battles, and more.

Although a new Clash Royale season is about to begin in two days, the Clan Wars II content won't hit until August. Are you still playing Clash Royale? If so, are you excited for this new content? If you fell off of the game, are you intrigued to jump back in?

Augmented Reality Infiltrates Game Informer’s Cyberpunk 2077 Cover

Animal Crossing's Summer Update Is Live And You Can Catch An Octopus!

Animal Crossing's Summer Update Is Live And You Can Catch An Octopus!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been updated today in a big way. You can now dip your toes in the ocean and go for a swim. If you see a shadow in the water, dive down and grab it. My first catch was an octopus for the museum. The update is free and shouldn't be any kind of hassle. Just boot up the game and away you go.

The game does a fine job of walking your through the process of getting your swimming suit (which set me back just 3,000 bells). Once you throw it on, you can hop right into the ocean. Along with my new eight-legged friend, there are 40 different creatures in the ocean to find, including a variety of crabs, a sea pineapple, garden eel, oyster, jellyfish, and sea pig (which will only be around between November and February). For the full list, check out Reddit user Chiiribi's post that even gives the seasons and time of day you'll find them. Happy hunting, everyone!
