Bungie Details Destiny 2 Season Of Dawn Roadmap

During Destiny's upcoming Season of Dawn, players will need to stop a council of Cabal Psion Flayers from tinkering with time and reversing their victory against the Red Legion. During this season, players will be able to participate in a couple of different holiday events and unlock two new Exotic weapons.

If you have one of Destiny 2's current season passes, you'll be able to play Sundial, which is a new mode that lets you fight the Niruul boss. In January, the legendary difficulty of Sundial unlocks so players can acquire the Devil’s Run Exotic sidearm.

Then, on January 28, the Bastion Exotic quest starts, which will let players earn the second exotic weapon of the season. The full season will also see the Elimination PvP mode return as well as a a couple returning PvP maps, and other new quests and bosses. If you're still playing Destiny 2, you should have plenty to do for the next few months.

Correction: Persona 5 Royal Is Not On Switch

Correction: Persona 5 Royal Is Not On Switch

In our latest issue, #321, we ran a preview for Persona 5 Royal hot off its release date announcement. Unfortunately, there was a production error, causing the bullets to display some misinformation. The bullets for another preview in the issue, Persona 5 Scramble, were displayed on Persona 5 Royal. This lists incorrect information, from Omega Force being a developer to it coming to Nintendo Switch. Persona 5 Royal has only been confirmed for PS4, and Atlus is the only developer working on it. We apologize for our error.

We were able to correct this mistake in our digital edition that is now live. Unfortunately, we did not catch it in time for our print subscribers. We wanted to clear the air before it reached your mailboxes.

We hope you enjoy the new issue and seeing more Persona 5 in it.

Nintendo Switch Online Adding Star Fox 2, Kirby Super Star, And More To Classic Games Library

Nintendo Switch Online Adding Star Fox 2, Kirby Super Star, And More To Classic Games Library

Nintendo has announced the next wave of classic titles coming to its Nintendo Switch Online service. From mainstay titles to more obscure releases, this wave of classic games looks to have something for most players.

In addition to beloved classics like Super Punch-Out!! and Kirby Super Star, the library is also adding the long-anticipated, rarely played Star Fox 2. The game, which was finished and originally planned for release in 1995 on SNES, finally officially debuted on the SNES Classic Edition mini-console in 2017. However, there hasn't been any other official release of the title since, so unless you were able to grab an SNES Classic, you've been out of luck. Nintendo is also releasing Breath of Fire II to its SNES library, and two games, Crystalis and Journey to Silius, to its NES library.

With these additions, the Switch's SNES catalog grows to 24 games, while the number of NES games balloons to 50. The library, which continues to grow and already features a large number of the best games across both platforms, is available at no additional charge to anyone who is an active paid subscriber to Nintendo's online service for the Switch. These new additions arrive on December 12.

Red Barrel Announces The Outlast Trials

Set during the Cold War, The Outlast Trials breaks new ground for the series as it introduces cooperative play. The game is in active development at Red Barrel, and, aside from its existence, details are mostly scarce. What we know, according to Polygon, is that the game is not a sequel and its’ co-op is for up to four players. We also know, from Red Barrel’s official statement, that the story involves an experiment. Whether or not the game revolves around experiencing said experiment, escaping from it, or both, has yet to be revealed. 

For more on Outlast series check out our reviews of the original and its sequel where we praise their psychological horror elements.

Campo Santo's In The Valley Of Gods Is Officially On Hold

Campo Santo's In The Valley Of Gods Is Officially On Hold

In a statement to Polygon, Jake Rodkin, co-founder of Campo Santo, said that “In the Valley of Gods development is on hold.” While the game is not canceled its future is uncertain as the Campo Santo staff are now working on a variety of projects for Valve, including Dota Underlords and the recently announced Half-Life: Alyx.

In the Valley of Gods future seems even shakier with Rodkin giving an ambiguous statement on whether the team will ever return to the project: “In the Valley of Gods' development is on hold — but it certainly feels like a project people can and may return to.”

This is certainly a blow to fans who have been eagerly awaiting this title since its announcement at the Game Awards two years ago.

Patrick Stewart is Narrating What?!?

Patrick Stewart is Narrating What?!?

That’s Right! None other than Sir Patrick Stewart is narrating the feature filled, holiday update for Plants Vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. The new update brings not only the beloved thespian to the scene, in a delightfully Dr. Seuss-esque role, but also a bevy of new modes and maps. 

First, players get to look forward to a new map, Oozevoir. This Splatoon-like map is filled with bouncy ink bringing some light aerial combat to Plants Vs Zombies.

Second, players get access to cooperative free-roam maps: Weirding Woods and Olde Town Hunt-A-Gnome. The former is a combat-oriented jolt through whimsical woods replete with talking enemy trees, while the latter offers puzzles to solve and treasures to find.
