Bethesda Tacitly Acknowledges Rage 2 Leak On Twitter

If you're a company hoping for E3 surprises and Wal-Mart Canada just ruined your day, you might be in a sour mood. Bethesda, however, is taking it in stride.

With Rage 2 possibly on the horizon, the official Rage Twitter account – which has sat dormant since the series was originally relevant with the first game's release in 2011 – decided to have some fun with Wal-Mart's supposed leak. In a tweet with various pictures, the account poked holes in the barebones placeholder listing by pointing out all the things that are wrong with it an extremely pedantic fashion.

To which the Bethesda account simply tweeted in reply "Dude."

Selfie Alert: God Of War's Photo Mode Is Out Today

It's no secret that God Of War is a gorgeous game (among its many other praiseworthy attributes), but using the PS4's built-in Share feature isn't always ideal for capturing all the troll-pounding action and breathtaking vistas. Today's latest God Of War patch aims to fix that by offering budding video game photojournalists a suite of tools to nab the perfect shot.

In a post on PlayStation.Blog, Santa Monica Studio engineering lead Jeet Shroff offers a full breakdown of the new photo mode included in Patch 1.20. Photo buffs can expect all the usual options, including field of view, focus distance, f-stop, and a variety of vignettes and borders, while the immature gamers among us can look forward to tweaking Kratos and Atreus' facial expressions to ruin the mood. Patch 1.20 also boosts the U.I. text size, which should give your eyes a much-needed reprieve from squinting at the menus.
