Star Wars: Clone Wars CG Series Returning

Star Wars: Clone Wars CG Series Returning

At San Diego Comic-Con this year, Disney and Lucasfilm announced that Star Wars: Clone Wars would be coming back after a five year hiatus.

The CG cartoon focused on a period of time in the Star Wars saga between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, the latter two movies in the prequel trilogy. The story followed Anakin Skywalker and his padawan Ahsoka Tano, but was cut short before the journey finished while Disney pivoted focus to the sequel series Star Wars Rebels. It seems Disney is now going back to the show to finish what was started as you can see in the trailer below.

The series is coming to Disney's yet-to-be-detailed online streaming service for at least 12 episodes, though details beyond that are scant. Both seasons 7 and seasons 8 for Clone Wars had finished scripts before the series' cancellation, so it is likely the new episodes will employ at least the ideas from those.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy Website Lists Unannounced PC And Switch Versions

Spyro Reignited Trilogy Website Lists Unannounced PC And Switch Versions

When Spyro Reignited Trilogy was announced, Activision specified that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were the only platforms the game was coming out on at launch. However, the website for the game in certain regions seems to be implying that might change quicker than we think.

On different regions for the Spyro Reignited Trilogy website, such as the UK, scrolling down to the preorder drop-down lists for the game lists PC and Switch as available preorder platforms in addition to the known PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions.

Considering that it is only appearing for certain regions, and the fact that Switch is listed twice, probably means this is some kind of mistake. Maybe code was taken from the website for the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which is available on all the aforementioned platforms, and was not as well-excised as they thought. Or Switch and PC versions could be pending announcements that simply went live way too early.

Ubisoft Reveals Ghost Recon Wildlands' Second Special Operation

Ubisoft Reveals Ghost Recon Wildlands' Second Special Operation

Ghost Recon Wildlands' free Special Operation 2 update arrives July 24 and brings a host of new features to the game.

The highlight of the additions is Ghost Mode, a permadeath mode aimed at creating a more realistic experience for hardcore players. In Ghost Mode, players can only use one primary weapon at a time and can only change loadouts by swapping them at an ammo box or looting a dead body. Any ammo remaining in the magazine will be lost when reloaded in Ghost Mode, and friendly fire is enabled. Death in Ghost Mode means the loss of any progress made on that character, so players will need create a new character before starting Ghost Mode.

Additional changes include the ability to turn off AI companions in the game's campaign and Ghost Mode, two new maps for the game's Ghost War PVP mode, victory screens for the winning team in Ghost War matches, new daily PVP challenges, and an "observer mode" that allows players to review and show off their Ghost War games.

Comcast Withdraws Bid For Fox, Disney Is Unimpeded For Acquisition

Comcast Withdraws Bid For Fox, Disney Is Unimpeded For Acquisition

When Fox announced that they were spinning off and selling their entertainment arm, 21st Century Fox, Disney was quite keen in acquiring the studio. The move would give Disney a 40 percent ownership of the entire American film industry and a host of IPs to bolster their already prolific portfolio. Comcast eventually stepped in to make their own bid for Fox's assets, leading to a bidding war between the two gigantic media conglomerates.

Today, Comcast withdrew their bid, leaving Disney the only game in town for Fox to call home.

Disney has overcome anti-trust regulatory questions concerning the buyout, so nothing is really standing in their way beyond a vote at Fox to let it go through. The move would make Disney unquestionably the largest entertainment company in the world, but would also likely incorporate Fox's long-held Marvel licenses like X-Men and Deadpool into the Marvel fold at Disney.
