Overwatch's Newest Hero Wrecking Ball Is Now Live

It's only been a few weeks since Hammond was announced and now he's already live outside the test servers, so everyone can get a chance to take him for a roll.

Hammond is a hamster inside a large rolling mech, a modified escape pod he used to abscond from the lunar colony he was held in. He uses the mech to not only roll around at high speeds, but also attach himself to solid structures using a grappling line and swinging around like, well, a wrecking ball.

Check out the live trailer of Wrecking Ball below.

Forsaken Gets HD Update 20 Years After Its Original Release

Night Dive Studios, the developer behind HD updates to games like Turok and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, has announced the next game in their triumvirate of late 1990s first-person shooters. This time around, Night Dive is bringing Forsaken to Xbox One and PC for a modern audience.

The 1998 shooter was originally released on the PlayStation, PC, and Nintendo 64, with some unique enemies in the N64 version. Forsaken was best known for its complete freedom of movement, where players could move up and down in a gravity-free fashion as well as strafe any direction they like.

For the HD remake, Night Dive is keeping the polygon count identical to the 20-year-old game, but the game will now run at 60 FPS, which is a bit more than double what the original game hit. Night Dive is also including all the N64-exclusive content for the update. You can check out the trailer for the new HD version below.

Epic Adds Shrine In Fortnite For Well-Intentioned But Failed Rescue

Last week, Epic showcased a daring rescue from streamer @MrMuselk attempting to rescue another Fortnite player who seemed completely stuck without materials and couldn't scale a cliff. The rescue ended less-than-great. But now Epic has forever enshrined that moment in Fortnite's history.

The player who was supposed to be rescued, Chappadoodle, now has a tombstone in the exact spot where, uh, mistakes were made. Reddit user StoreBrandEnigma discovered the shrine after the latest update and posted a video. The grave is a simple and understated tombstone with some rubber tires, which would have saved Chappadoodle from his fate in the first place.

In the comments, an Epic developer said "The legacy of Chappadoodle lives on."

Silent Hill HD Collection And Silent Hill: Homecoming Now Backwards Compatible On Xbox One

Silent Hill HD Collection And Silent Hill: Homecoming Now Backwards Compatible On Xbox One

Although Silent Hills will never see the light of day, fans of the dormant series can now revisit a few of its earlier titles on Xbox One. The Silent Hill HD Collection, which includes the second and third games, and Silent Hill: Homecoming are both now backwards compatible.

The Silent Hill HD Collection is a notoriously janky up-res (it was developed from incomplete code), and we didn't particularly enjoy Homecoming either. That being said, the series is undoubtedly a part of gaming history; it's better it exists in some format than not at all.

Guacamelee 2 Releases On August 21 For PS4 And PC

Fans of the melee-focused Metroidvania-platformer Guacamelee have been hotly anticipating the poultry-filled sequel since its announcement last October. Now it seems Guacamelee 2 is ready for primetime with a release date announcement of August 21.

Guacamelee 2 brings four-player co-op to the series but still retains all the melee combos and 2D exploration that fans have come to expect from the series. Check out the new footage in the release date trailer below.

Guacamelee 2 will be launching on PlayStation 4 and Steam. Drinkbox hasn't said if the game will be coming to other platforms, but told us at PSX last year to simply look at how the first game progressed. For now, though, the announced versions of Guacamelee 2 will be available on August 21.
