Evo 2019 Bringing The Hype Next August

After tons of exciting moments, stirring runs through finals brackets, upsets, and more, it should be no surprise that the world's biggest fighting game tournament, The Evolution Championship Series (Evo), will be back next year.

The event will once again take place at the Mandalay Bay Resort And Casino In Las Vegas, Nevada, from August 2-4. Judging by the trailer below, we can expect heavy hitters like Street Fighter and Super Smash Bros., the likely return of Guilty Gear Xrd, and the introduction of the newly-released Soulcalibur VI.

The official titles have not been announced. Those announcements tend to happen in the early part of the year.

Leak Confirmed With November’s PlayStation Plus Free Lineup Reveal

Leak Confirmed With November’s PlayStation Plus Free Lineup Reveal

Sony has officially confirmed a leak from earlier this month. Yakuza Kiwami and Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition are November’s free PlayStation Plus headliners.

In Bulletstorm, you play as a disgraced ex-assassin Grayson Hunt on a journey for vengeance and survival. In the end, if you can’t have both, will you choose revenge over saving your crew? In Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, this over-the-top shooter is remastered and includes all existing Bulletstorm add-ons plus exclusive content. Also, Game Informer's Jeff Cork seems to really like it.

The second free title for November, the remastered Yakuza Kiwami, throws you right in the middle of the Japanese underworld as Kazuma Kiryu. Kiryu, formally a ranking member of the Yakuza, has been released from prison into a gang war. His family ties severed, Kiryu must find the answers to what happened alone. Strangely, Jeff Cork also enjoyed this game, giving it an 8.5, which leaves us wondering if Sony is following Jeff Cork’s preferences with particular interest. If you’re reading this, Sony, he wrote a very positive hands-on preview for Red Dead Redemption II. Just saying.
