Report: Lucasfilm Puts Standalone Star Wars Movies On Hold

Report: Lucasfilm Puts Standalone Star Wars Movies On Hold

Lucasfilm has halted production on future "A Star Wars Story" standalone movies, according to a report from Collider. This includes the rumored Obi-Wan and Boba Fett movies. According to Collider's sources, "the previously rumored Obi-Wan movie was in active development, but those who were working on the film are no longer involved."

Solo: A Star Wars Story received mixed reviews from fans and critics alike, and though it was profitable, it performed poorly at the box office in comparison to other Star Wars movies. Many blame "Star Wars fatigue" for Solo's failure, as Solo came to theaters just five months after Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Rather than devoting time to the spinoffs, Lucasfilm will now focus on Episode IX and the Rian Johnson trilogy after that, according to Collider. The series of Star Wars movies written by Game of Thrones T.V. series writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss is not part of the spinoff series that has been put on hold.

Digital Card Game Scrolls Renamed To Caller's Bane, Made Free-To-Play

Scrolls, a digital card game released in 2014 by Minecraft creator Markus Persson and Jakob Porsér, has undergone a branding change to Caller's Bane and is going free-to-play.

The announcement was made on the official website today, which still refers to the game as Scrolls in various headers and images. 

"We've got a new name - 'Caller's Bane,'" the website reads. "I'm sure there's a good reason for it. Perhaps we just didn't like the sound of 'Scrolls'. Either way, it's still the same game you've known and loved."

Psyonix Outlines Plans For Rocket League's Rocket Pass

Psyonix Outlines Plans For Rocket League's Rocket Pass

Psyonix has provided details about its upcoming Rocket Pass progression system, which is coming to Rocket League later this summer. Players can unlock new cosmetics with Rocket Pass, which functions similar to Fortnite's Battle Pass.

When the program goes live, players will automatically begin unlocking rewards by playing, without spending any additional money on the game. For Rocket League players who want more, there's a $10 premium option, which grants access to more cosmetics, such as player banners, car bodies, and more. The majority of the items that you unlock – either in the free or premium pass – can be traded with other players. If you decide that you're into the new progression system, you can also upgrade to a premium pass and immediately unlock all of the rewards from your current tier.

Psyonix says that players should be able to unlock all of the available reward tiers in about 100 hours, though that can be reduced when playing during double XP weekends or other promotions.
