Wolfenstein Youngblood's New Trailer Offers First Look At Bloody Gameplay

The next entry in MachineGames' Wolfenstein series made a surprise debut at E3 last year. Youngblood was revealed to be a story that takes place after the in-progress The New Order trilogy, effectively serving as standalone game before the third title's release. Initial details were scant, with a quick trailer showing we'd be playing as protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz's daughters taking on Nazis in Paris.

Today, Bethesda finally lifted the veil to show off some bloody co-op gameplay (as well as reveal that the game was being co-developed by Dishonored creators Arkane). Get your first glimpse right here:

Wolfenstein Youngblood is out July 26. For more on Wolfenstein, check out our review of the last entry as well as this history on the whole series.

Gearbox Drops A Teaser Trailer For The Next Borderlands Game

The Borderlands series hasn't had a proper new entry since the Pre-Sequel released in 2014. Fans clamoring for another entry in the beloved series should be happy to know that Gearbox is gearing up to drop (hopefully big) news about the long-in-development follow-up at a PAX Panel this week. 

Way back in 2017, Gearbox head Randy Pitchford gave us our first glimpse of what the Borderlands sequel looked like. Today we got another taste of the vibe the studio is going for via this "Mask of Mayhem" teaser trailer:

Gearbox is hosting the PAX East panel to follow up this teaser trailer tomorrow, March 28. If you're not attending the convention in Boston you can still see the presentation via a livestream on the Borderlands homepage at 11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET.

Pokémon Go's Second Earth Day Event Could Add A Shiny Diglett To The Game

Pokémon Go's Second Earth Day Event Could Add A Shiny Diglett To The Game

From April 13 to 28, Pokémon Go players are invited to get outside, explore, socialize, and help clean up the world. For the second year running, Niantic is hosting worldwide Earth Day Cleanup events focused on ecology, wildlife, and general cleanup. Making the world a better place should be incentive enough, but Niantic is also rewarding Pokémon Go players for their efforts with the release of shiny Digletts for everyone to catch, but only if enough people help out.

If 2,000 players are a part of these events, more ground-type Pokémon will appear in the wild. If 5,000 players are helping, the shiny Diglett will be released within 48 hours of the goal being reached. If 7,000 players unite, Groudon will appear in raids, and stardust and candy for event spawns will double. We all need a shiny Diglett, so get out there, people.

Niantic is teaming up with various nonprofit organizations for this event. If you're interested in attending, you can find out what is in your area, and can register here.

Sony Stops Selling PS4 Download Codes At Retail

Sony Stops Selling PS4 Download Codes At Retail

Very soon Sony will stop allowing physical retailers, such as GameStop, from selling codes to download digital versions of its games. Last week, the rumor circulated when @Wario64 acquired an internal memo stating that digital games will only be available straight from PSN and that physical retailers would only be able to sell add-on content, virtual currency, and codes for the PlayStation Network service.

GameStop stores just got a memo saying that Sony will no longer provide full game digital download codes to retailers (not just GameStop) starting April 1st. Digital games will only be available straight from PSN after that date. Add-on content/PSN $ cards will still be available

This week, The Verge was able to confirm that this is indeed true. “As of April 1, 2019, Sony Interactive Entertainment will no longer offer full games through SIE’s Global Digital at Retail program,” said a PlayStation spokesperson. “This decision was made in order to continue to align key businesses globally. To support full games and premium editions, SIE will introduce increased denominations at select retailers. DLC, add-ons, virtual currency, and season passes will still be available.”

George R. R. Martin Expects The Show Finale To Deviate From The Books

It's strange to say, but the final episodes of Game of Thrones are less than a month away. Soon, everyone who's followed the show – some as far back as the first book's publication in 1996 and others since the TV adaptation aired in 2007 – will finally see how George R. R. Martin envisioned the end of his massive, popular fantasy series.

Or will they?

Martin recently spoke to Rolling Stone about the inspirations behind Game of Thrones' leading ladies, sisters Arya and Sansa Stark, and dropped this little nugget about the series' conclusion:

A New Racing Mode Comes To Red Dead Online Today

A New Racing Mode Comes To Red Dead Online Today

Rockstar Games is adding extra features to Red Dead Online Beta's racing game mode today. "Target Races" combine the intensive horse-riding mechanics with pinpoint weapon accuracy. Players start with a bow and arrow and must hit targets to increase their horse's base stamina meter. Pickups are littered throughout the courses as well, providing better weapons and stamina replenishment.

The trick is not only to hit multiple targets but cut down the competition as well. Each weapon has a limited supply of ammunition meaning that players will need to choose between eliminating other riders or shooting bullseyes to gain points. But don't forget that this is still a race! Slip behind opponents and enter their slipstream to gain a slight speed boost. If you're in trouble of losing the lead, kick your adversaries to chip at their horse's stamina levels. Moreover, PlayStation 4 owners will get early access to "Open Target Races," where players are thrown into larger locales to compete for the top spot. 

In addition to this new event, Red Dead Online players get a 20 percent increase on XP earning activities. This is coupled with a 25 percent discount that you'll get on all horse care products as well. More updates will be joining the repertoire as Rockstar Games prepares to release a major update this spring

Dead Cells: Rise Of The Giant DLC Gets New Animated Short

Dead Cells: Rise Of The Giant DLC Gets New Animated Short

In just a couple of days, on March 28, Dead Cells is receiving a free content update called Rise of the Giant on PC, which should include lots of new items to tool around with. We loved the game when it launched, saying "The backbone of the experience is basic hacking and slashing, but it feels so good." Now you can watch the character run up that backbone.

To mark the occasion, Motion Twin released an animated trailer for the update that shows off the immense scale of the boss fight coming to the game as well as a couple new weapons.

Currently this update is only slated for PC, but hopefully other versions of the game will see this down the road. Even if you don't have the game, this is still a nicely animated little video.

New Anthem Update Brings Legendary Missions And More

New Anthem Update Brings Legendary Missions And More

Anthem is slowly getting more content, but it likely isn't what you were hoping it would be. Today BioWare released Anthem's 1.04 update, which brings a host of fixes to the game, and introduces two new things: legendary missions and Elysian caches.

As promising as the legendary missions sound, they are just harder versions of the already available critical path missions. Only one legendary mission is offered per day, but you can complete it as many times as you would like.

The Elysian caches appear when the final boss of a Stronghold is defeated. To open the cache, you'll first need to obtain Elysian key, which are handed out for completing daily challenges. The cache holds crafting and vanity materials. When one is opened, everyone in your expedition gets something. BioWare says that there are 67 unique vanity unlocks in the game, and that players will never get duplicates.
