Battleborn Gets A New Competitive Multiplayer Mode

Supercharge is a fast-paced 3v3 mode for Battleborn, played on all-new maps, and it will be available later today.

The new mode plays like a mix between Meltdown and Capture. The smaller team size requires players to closely coordinate as they try to escort their minions through gates for points, while simultaneously trying to maintain control of a capture point that "supercharges" their minions. Supercharge will have its own challenges for players to complete that will net them more titles, experience, and credits. 

If you want to give it a try, you don't have much longer to wait. Supercharge goes live at 12 p.m. PT.

Ron Howard Now Directing Han Solo Film

A few days ago, we learned that the upcoming Han Solo film had lost directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Today, Lucasfilm has revealed who's taking over, and it's someone that you've probably heard of before. Ron Howard (Apollo 13, Backdraft, Willow) is now in the director's seat for the upcoming project, which still has a May 25, 2018, release date.

“At Lucasfilm, we believe the highest goal of each film is to delight, carrying forward the spirit of the saga that George Lucas began forty years ago,” Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, said in a statement. “With that in mind, we’re thrilled to announce that Ron Howard will step in to direct the untitled Han Solo film. We have a wonderful script, an incredible cast and crew, and the absolute commitment to make a great movie. Filming will resume the 10th of July.”

ZeniMax Back In Court With Oculus VR

Earlier this year ZeniMax was awarded $500 million from Oculus for failure to comply with a non-disclosure agreement, but the two companies' legal battle over VR trade secrets is not over.

The pair are back in court, with ZeniMax not only looking for another $500 million, but also to halt Oculus from selling its Rift headset or for 20 percent of revenue from Rift sales for 10 years. Oculus, meanwhile, wants the first award thrown out entirely or reduced, as well as damages from ZeniMax.

ZeniMax claims that Oculus stole trade secrets in the creation of its Rift headset.

Oilers Star Connor McDavid Named NHL 18 Cover Athlete

Oilers Star Connor McDavid Named NHL 18 Cover Athlete

EA Sports has no shortage of spectacular young stars to choose from when it comes to cover athletes. Auston Matthews, Patrik Laine, Jack Eichel, Matt Murray, and many other skaters under 25 years old would be ideal cover candidates. But for this year's high-flying edition of the game, EA went for the best. 

The NHL 18 cover athlete honors go to Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid, arguably the most talented player in the game. Last year, at just 19 years old, he became the youngest captain in NHL history. He took on the responsibility in legendary fashion, ending the Oilers' 10-year playoff drought and winning the Art Ross Trophy (led the NHL in scoring) and the Ted Lindsay Award (voted the most outstanding player in the regular season) in just his second season. Only two players in NHL history were younger than McDavid when they won the prestigious Art Ross Trophy. Their names? Wayne Gretzky and Sidney Crosby.

“Representing NHL 18 as the cover athlete is an incredible honor,” McDavid said in a press statement. “I’ve played EA Sports NHL every year since I was a kid. To appear on the cover, something that has been done previously by so many players that I respect and admire is very exciting.”

Few details are given away by the teaser, although it seems we'll be getting a a fresh crop of antagonists as well as a potential look into Eren and Misaka's past. While the illustrated stills don't give us anything concrete, the quote, "Behold, the sea..." poses a mysterious theme for fans to mull over during the wait. Fortunately, the 2018 release window means we won't have to endure another four year gap like the one between seasons one and two.

Rumor: Details For Visceral's Star Wars Game May Have Leaked

A Star Wars fan site called MakingStarWars.net has allegedly discovered details about the upcoming Star Wars game being developed by Visceral Games, which is being headed-up by creative director Amy Henning. Obviously these details should be taken with a grain of salt and if you don't want to know any possible spoilers for what Visceral Games has in the works, you'd best turn back now.

MakingStarWars.net's Editor-in-chief, Jason Ward, says that the game is currently referred to as Project Ragtag and focuses on a character named Dodger set between the events of A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. According to Ward, Dodger was forced into the criminal underground to avoid being drafted into the Imperial Army and finds himself in the employ of Jabba The Hutt.
