Kena: Bridge Of Spirits Slips To 2021 Release

If, like us, you're excited to get your hands on Kena: Bridge of Spirits, we have a little bittersweet news: According to a statement from Ember Lab, the game is slipping from a holiday 2020 release to the first quarter of 2021. The studio says the decision was made for the sake of the game's quality, as well as for the well-being of the team. 

Here's the official statement, in its entirety:

It's certainly disappointing in the short term, but it's hard to argue with if it means a better game in the end and, less selfishly, if the delay makes it possible for the game to be completed and polished without burning out its staff.

Destiny 2 Traveler’s Chosen Exotic Trailer Showcases New Weapon

Destiny 2 Traveler’s Chosen Exotic Trailer Showcases New Weapon

As players wait for the impending arrival of Destiny 2: Beyond Light on November 10, the ongoing Destiny 2 experience still has some new content to offer up. The biggest new addition is the Exodus questline, which became available at weekly reset this week. Complete the multi-part quest, which focuses on evacuating allies from the planets being overtaken by The Darkness, and the new Traveler’s Chosen exotic sidearm will be yours.

Traveler’s Chosen is actually a refit of the sidearm Guardians first acquired at the launch of Destiny 2, during the mission that saw the fall of the old tower. The new version has some sweet new tricks up its sleeve. By nailing final blows with the gun, you’ll be granted stacks of a buff called Gathering Light. Each stack, in turn, improves reload, handling, and target acquisition. You can subsequently consume those stacks to grant grenade, melee, and class ability energy. That combo of abilities is sure to make the weapon a popular option for many players, as it could help facilitate some particularly strong streaks of enemy killing.

Check out the trailer for the new exotic weapon below. The Exodus questline, and the resulting Traveler’s Chosen sidearm, is free for all Destiny 2 players.

Panzer Dragoon: Remake Is Now Coming To PS4 And PC

If you were curious about Panzer Dragoon: Remake, but don't own a Switch, you're in luck! Today, it was announced that the game is also coming to PS4 and PC.

The remake of the 1995 Sega Saturn rail shooter was a timed exclusive for the Nintendo Switch and surprise launched back in March. It looks like that exclusivity window is now over, as the game's Twitter account made the news official, stating that PS4 and PC releases would be up first and hinting that more platforms were in the works for it. 

Panzer Dragoon: Remake will be soon available on additional gaming platforms!

Wonder Woman 1984 Delayed Until Christmas

Wonder Woman 1984 Delayed Until Christmas

Just a few weeks ago at the DC Fandome online event, Wonder Woman 1984 raised our hype levels with a new trailer (above) that gave us a look at Kristen Wiig's Cheetah in action. Today, it was announced we're going to have to wait a bit longer before we can finally see all the movie has to offer. Wonder Woman 1984, which originally was expected to hit on October 3, is now set to release on December 25.

Director Patti Jenkins had this to say about moving the date: “First and foremost let me say how much Gal [Gadot] and I love all our devoted Wonder Woman fans around the world, and your excitement for WW84 couldn’t make us happier or more eager for you to see the movie. Because I know how important it is to bring this movie to you on a big screen when all of us can share the experience together, I’m hopeful you won’t mind waiting just a little bit longer. With the new date on Christmas Day, we can’t wait to spend the holidays with you!”

This isn't Wonder Woman 1984's first delay. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused several setbacks and shuffling of release dates. The highly anticipated sequel was originally scheduled for June 5 before slipping to August 14 and then to October 2. Hopefully, this is final date, but it's hard to know during these unpredictable times and the necessary slowing of theater re-openings.

Baldur's Gate 3 Announces Twitch Integration Features

September 30 Early Access is almost here for Larian Studios' Baldur's Gate 3. Following up the epic CRPG that Divinity: Original Sin 2 brought to the digital table, expectations are sky high for a deep dive into Dungeons & Dragons. This time around, a new feature is coming into focus for Twitch streamers. If you're looking for a core RPG experience by yourself or with friends, don't worry, this isn't going to impact your game at all.

But for those on Twitch who are looking to involve the viewers in making the big decisions that change the game, viewers in chat can vote on dialogue choices as they occur in real time. In addition, they can interact with the overlay to check out character stats, inventory, and other critical information without pestering the streamer to spend time constantly checking bags and character sheets. These functions could help foster "community runs" that give viewers some more investment and agency as the giant adventure unfolds.

Check out this new video for a ton of new info on Baldur's Gate 3!

KOTOR's Darth Nihilus Is Getting A Star Wars: The Black Series Figure

KOTOR's Darth Nihilus Is Getting A Star Wars: The Black Series Figure

The Mandalorian is currently the most coveted of Hasbro's long-running Star Wars: The Black Series action figures, but I suspect the newly announced Darth Nihilus will give him a run for his money. This popular Sith Lord debuted in 2004's Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, and despite having little exposure since then, has remained popular both for toy collectors and cosplayers.

The Darth Nihilus figure will be sold exclusively at GameStop starting on October 26, and is a part of the retailer's Gaming Greats line. Preorders are live now. Nihilus joins Darth Revan in this ongoing series, and hopefully won't be the last KOTOR figure we see. We'd love to get a Black Series figure of HK-47 next. You can view several shots of Darth Nihilus' upcoming figure below:

Reader Discussion - How Do You Feel About The Xbox Series X & S Prices?

After what felt like eons of time (and with the help of a major leak), Microsoft has finally unveiled the retail prices of the Xbox Series X and its slim, sleek counterpart, the Series S. While the Series X is listed at $499, the Series S has a more manageable price of $299. The specs between the two consoles aren't particularly drastic, but the Series X is undeniably pumping out better numbers including more memory storage and a higher native resolution. Additionally, both consoles have financing options - which, if you ask me, is a godsend!

But, we're not here to listen to what I think about these prices; we're hear to get feedback from you! What do you think about the prices? Were you expecting both consoles to cost more or less than what they were revealed to be? Does anybody else think they're going to try out the financing options? Go on and share your thoughts in the comments below.

Watch the new gameplay trailer below. 

Take to the streets of Watch Dog: Legion's London as any of its wacky citizens on October 29 for current and next gen PlayStation and Xbox consoles. It will also be available on Stadia and PC.
