Valheim Player Recreates Dragonreach From Skyrim In-Game

Valheim is a Viking-inspired survival game that allows players to craft to their heart's content while battling it out with various creatures littered throughout the stunningly beautiful open world. The crafting in-game is incredible and has inspired some amazing creations from Valheim players. We've previously shared how one player faithfully recreated Whiterun from Skyrim in-game (and Elder Scrolls as a franchise); now another is taking on the area of Dragonreach. 

Reddit user u/ItsReallyOnlyBryce took to the forums to share quite a few incredible screenshots of their recreation with the help of this Dragonreach build share mod right here (it's free). It's hard not to be a little impressed with the work, mod or not. The creator responded to their own thread saying that this fan-driven project has only recently finished, clocking in at 50 hours spent making this crossover a reality. 

They also shared a video of the completed Dragonreach recreation in Valhein, which you can see below:

IO Interactive Sheds More Light On Its Approach To Creating Its Own James Bond

Hitman developer IO Interactive announced last November their next project is a James Bond title that will serve as an origin story for the iconic spy. In a recent interview with IGN, IO shed more light on how they’re building the game’s narrative and, most importantly, how it’s shaping its own take on 007. 

In an episode of IGN Unfiltered, IO CEO Hakan Abrak spoke with Ryan McCaffrey and confirmed that its Bond is 100% original and thus won’t use any existing movie likenesses. The studio is also drawing inspiration from Bond’s entire history, from the books to the films, to craft a whole new story untethered to any existing narratives. This approach speaks to the team’s desire for creating a version of Bond that is, his Abrak's words, "A Bond for the gaming industry".

Borderlands Movie Synopsis Revealed, Deukalian Atlas Officially Cast

The Borderlands movie was first announced back in 2015. Now that Eli Roth is set to direct it and a bevy of Hollywood stars like Cate Blanchett, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jack Black, and Kevin Hart make up an ever-growing cast, the film’s box office outlook is looking more and more promising. Édgar Ramirez (American Crime Story, Carlos) is the latest actor to join the film. He will play Deukalian Atlas, the mind behind the renowned Atlas Corporation that develops some of the most well-balanced guns in the franchise.

Atomic Heart Gameplay Compilation Showcases Intense Action and Creepy Open-World

Atomic Heart Gameplay Compilation Showcases Intense Action and Creepy Open-World

A new compilation of Atomic Heart gameplay trailers showcases visceral combat and a few highly-detailed  locations that you’ll get to explore. From multi-floored museum-like arenas to lush forests with abandoned structures, Atomic Heart looks to offer blood-pumping action sequences within flashy, bombastic setpieces. 

Mundfish’s upcoming open-world RPG is set in an alternate reality where the USSR has made substantial technological advancements that push it decades ahead of any other world power. You play as a special KGB agent named P-3. Armed with a robust selection of firearms and melee weapons, you’ll traverse the various environments to unearth the secrets behind the Soviet Union’s creations while fighting off a bevy of the wild experiments that roam the land. 

The adversaries shown vary from cyborgs (they’re like an interesting cross between the ones in I, Robot and Alien: Isolation) to powerful monsters. There’s that terrifying beast that emerges from a hole in the ground that P-3 fights at the 5:25 mark, and the sauntering bear-man-thing with the bloody head at the 8:32 mark is the stuff of literal nightmares. Gameplay-wise, Atomic Heart reminds me of the first Bioshock game.

Funko Adds More Figures Based On The Falcon And The Winter Soldier [UPDATE]

Funko Adds More Figures Based On The Falcon And The Winter Soldier [UPDATE]

Update 4/5/2021: Remember when I mentioned that you could get Funko Pops of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier's other, less punchable faces? How about figures for Baron Zemo (yes, even he's more tolerable than John Walker) and Sharon Carter? Both are available for pre-sale at $11.00 on Funko's website and will become available at an unspecified date. Though if you really want a figure of the new Captain America, keep on scrolling. 

Original Story: Funko Pops! You like ‘em, you want ‘em, you gotta have ‘em. I’m back to share a new figure from the popular line of dolls, this time based on the latest Marvel series, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. If you enjoyed the line of WandaVision line Pop figures you’ll probably want to make room for another Disney+ bad boy. I mean that literally. This boy is really, really bad. 

Funko has unveiled a Pop figure of the newly-minted Captain America (barf), John F. Walker. Who is John Walker? Well, you should probably know this if you’ve been watching the show (or read Captain America comics for that matter) but the most succinct description I can give him is “This SOB Is Definitely Not Steve Rodgers”. On the plus size, his Pop figure looks like it’s the perfect size for Bucky to angrily toss into a wall before he sits on the floor to watch TV like a weirdo.

Monster Hunter Rise Ships 5 Million Units Worldwide [UPDATE]

Update 4/5/2021: Sales of Monster Hunter Rise continue to, well, Rise. Capcom announced that the game has now surpassed 5 million units sold. That's an impressive feat given it was less than a week ago that we reported the game hitting the 4 million mark (posted below). Who would have thought that a new entry in a very popular series released exclusively on a very popular platform would perform so well so quickly? Probably everyone, but kudos to Capcom regardless. 

Original Story: Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter Rise has now shipped over 4 million copies worldwide. The latest addition to the franchise is currently available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. It looks like the series is now well-established and embraced in the mainstream gaming reality, as opposed as its perhaps more niche inclusion in circles years ago as it lived on handhelds. Looking to get started in Monster Hunter Rise? Check out our guide right here.

Overwatch’s Next Archives Event Launches This Week

Outside of the fun team-based gameplay, Overwatch events have continued to be a main draw for its dedicated playerbase. These events — from the Summer Games to Winter Wonderland — usually introduce new arcade game modes, cosmetics, sprays, emotes, victory poses, and play of the game cutscenes. Overwatch’s Archives event goes a step further by including PVE story missions that provide more details about the Overwatch universe and the colorful personalities that inhabit it. As you might have already guessed, the Archives event has returned. 

Prepare to experience the past while fighting for the future.
The Overwatch Archives are back starting April 6! pic.twitter.com/whwjyGL9T2

The small clip above doesn’t give us a lot of details about what we’re likely to see this time around, but there’s sure to be a decent amount of new collectibles to earn in loot boxes or to purchase with any in-game currency that you’ve already been saving up. Personally, I’m hoping for another Ana skin as well as a game mode that will focus on her backstory and her whereabouts after she went M.I.A. in that fateful sniper battle with Widowmaker.

Call Of Duty: Warzone Player Wins Match Without Doing Anything

Call Of Duty: Warzone Player Wins Match Without Doing Anything

Sometimes pacifism can be the path to victory. That often isn't the case in competitive shooters, but Reddit user Pinkys Brain somehow managed to net a solo victory in Call of Duty: Warzone without harming another individual. When this incredible feat was achieved, Pinkys_Brain pulled out a camera and recorded the post-match statistics to verify no kills were made, and no damage was dealt.

In the Reddit comments section, Pinkys_Brain said a pacifist run wasn't necessarily the game plan. "I was waiting to fight people in the final circle, and they got stuck at the bottom of a hill and died in the gas." Pinkys_Brain netted a score of 4,900 and somehow managed to complete a contract along the way.

I've been a part of many Call of Duty: Warzone matches where I've hunkered down and not engaged another player. As cowardly as it may seem, this strategy can lead to higher placement – sometimes in the top 10, but these matches always come down to having to run to a different circle and engage other players. We've all died in the gas or have seen other players perish in it. That's a part of the game: you have to keep moving (or get lucky and start in an area where the final circle constriction will be).

Which Outriders Class Should You Pick

Which Outriders Class Should You Pick

Outriders is available now and rocky server launch issues aside, players have been enjoying what People Can Fly has to offer. Before taking on the dangerous world of Enoch, there are a few things you should know. We've got our master guide here to cover all of the bases, but the first step is deciding what you want to play. With four classes to choose from, here is everything you need to know to decide which Outriders class you should pick. 

There is a playstyle for everyone. Whether you want to go full-on tank with the Devastator class, or want to take on the role of support with Technomancer, here is what you can expect from each choice: 

For our review, I played all four classes, one of which to full completion and the second is almost done as well. My first run was for the Pyromancer, which I enjoyed, but I wouldn't recommend this one if you're playing solo. It's not bad by any stretch, in fact, it's exhilarating, but something with more effective heals and defense would be better for those venturing out alone. For those playing solo, I'd recommend either the Devastator for its tank combat and defense or Technomancer for the additional healing properties and turret support. Each class feels wildly different, so feel free to play around and see which one feels best! That being said, Trickster is now my number one Best Boy and we'll have those memories forever.
