See How Persona 5 Pulled Off Some Its Behind-The-Scenes Tricks In This Video

Youtuber Shesez shows off some of the neat tricks Persona 5 uses to detail its world. Areas that look 3D but aren't, objects rendered outside the scene that appear only when they're needed, and locations with lots of details players never see are just some of the things Shesez showcases below.

Layers Of Fear 2 Trailer Is Short But Not Sweet

 Gun Media has released a new trailer for Layers of Fear 2, and it's narrated by Tony Todd, who played the titular killer in the early 90s horror film Candyman.

As with the last trailer for the game, Layers of Fear 2 focuses on fleshing out the fears of an actor. Todd's narration is succinct, implying the player character wanted to be an actor so they wouldn't have be themselves. Of course, this being a horror game, you can expect some of the genre staples: Coffins, poorly-lit rooms, and doors that close by themselves. You can watch the trailer below.

Fortnite Earned $2.4 Billion Last Year, 'The Most Annual Revenue Of Any Game In History'

Fortnite has been an incredible, record-breaking success with its free-to-play battle royale formula. According to a recent report from SuperData, not only was Fortnite the top grossing free game of 2018, it also brought in "the most annual revenue of any game in history" with $2.4 billion thanks to its skins, emotes, and season passes.

The report says that free-to-play games earned a whopping $87.7 billion last year as a whole. This accounts for 80% of 2018's $109.8 billion in digital games revenue.

Although free-to-play games have become a popular business model, premium games are still hugely successful, especially in the West. Premium games brought in $17.8 billion total revenue in 2018. Some of the biggest grossing paid games that released last year include FIFA 18 ($790 million), Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 ($612 million), and Red Dead Redemption 2 ($516 million).

Overkill's The Walking Dead Delayed On Consoles

Publisher Starbreeze has announced that Overkill's The Walking Dead's console release has been delayed indefinitely. The cooperative shooter was slated to come to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as of February 6.

Starbreeze says that it will eventually reveal information about a later release date, but it doesn't give any specifics outside of that. 

Overkill's The Walking Dead released on PC late last year, but received mostly negative reviews, garnering a 52% metacritic score. Our reviewer Matt Miller gave it a 4.5, saying that, "In the case of Overkill’s The Walking Dead, major technical problems and connection issues, baffling gameplay systems and controls, tedious combat and stealth, and poorly structured missions all contrive to halt the fun."
