WWE 2K Battlegrounds, Saber Interactive’s cartoonier take on the already-wacky world of WWE, is getting its first free roster updates. Beginning November 6 and over the couple of weeks players can look forward to receiving new batches Superstars, current and legendary, that they can feed to live alligators using John Cena’s Attitude Adjustment. 

The first batch of characters arrives this Friday, with two more sets coming over the next couple of weeks. Some of the new superstars and their cosmetics must be unlocked using the in-game currency (which can be earned or purchased using real cash). Characters that are unlocked from the get-go have been labeled as such:

Bethesda Is Interested In More Multiplayer Games After Fallout 76, But Its Approach Needs To Change

Bethesda Is Interested In More Multiplayer Games After Fallout 76, But Its Approach Needs To Change

To say that the Fallout 76 launch and the subsequent year was messy would be a massive understatement. While not the company's first multiplayer game, it was a first for the Fallout franchise. After numerous changes and a major overhaul, the Fallout 76 community is active and the overall reception has been positive. Director Todd Howard said recently that despite the long road to get to that point, the experience has been a good one and that the studio is looking into exploring even more multiplayer options. 

During the recent Developer: Brighton Conference with GameIndustry.biz, Howard revealed that the team knows they made some colossal mistakes when marketing Fallout 76 and with the launch itself. Given how much the public opinion has shifted in a positive light for the game shows that the team has learned from those mistakes, but will that stop them from making similar missteps in the future? According to Howard, the way to avoid that is to completely change their approach to multiplayer as to avoid another Fallout 76 debacle. 

Star Renegades Is Coming To Console On November 19

Star Renegades Is Coming To Console On November 19

Roguelike sci-fi tactical RPG Star Renegades is coming to consoles soon. You can pick it up on Xbox One and Switch on November 19, or PlayStation 4 on November 25. I reviewed the game when it hit PC, and enjoyed it quite a bit, especially the art style. Check out the full review here.

If you're curious as to how it plays, it's a roguelike with a dimension-hopping conceit where you have to time your abilities in sequence in order to interrupt opponents, land critical hits, and stay alive. While you can make it through some of the regular battles without embracing the mechanics, bosses will tear you apart unless you master the time line. There are some unlocks like new characters you can take with you from run to run but it leans closer to a traditional roguelike than a progression-based roguelite. Check out the spiffy new trailer below!

New Netflix's The Witcher Season 2 Video Teases New Monsters

Netflix's The Witcher season 2 is well underway and to celebrate, we've got a new trailer that bodes well for new monsters making their way onto the show. The latest teaser video, appropriately set to the song "Monster Mash," is all about the beasties The Witcher series has to offer. 

The video doesn't let that Halloween spirit die with a description that says, "The White Wolf takes Halloween as a personal challenge. Keep your eyes peeled for a few sweet treats...you won't want to miss what's hidden."

As for the show itself, Netflix's The Witcher season two currently filming following a few COVID-related production issues, though Henry Cavill (Geralt) recently posted that the latest wave of lockdowns has them moving locations back to the studio. For those ready to dive into a new season, below is the official synopsis for the road ahead:

NBA 2K21 Introduces The City, A New Multiplayer Experience For New-Gen Consoles

With the imminent launch of NBA 2K21 for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, Visual Concepts and 2K Games hasn't held back on the reveals, providing insight into the improved gameplay, enhanced A.I., and new WNBA experience "The W."  Visual Concepts didn't stop there with the upgrades, pulling back the curtain today on "The City," which is the largest multiplayer environment in 2K History. 

The City is an evolution from The Neighborhood, which fans will remember was preceded by The Park, but the goal has always been the same: To bring together a virtual basketball community. "Imagine a map that is many, many times larger than previous Neighborhoods," writes executive producer Erick Boenisch in the most recent Courtside Report. "A design that resembles a modern metropolis, complete with towering skyscrapers, sprawling plazas, and a city center. Oh, and it houses four distinct boroughs that are controlled by four rival Affiliations. And with that, I’m incredibly proud to announce that Affiliations are BACK!"

Dragon Quest XI S Gets Huge Demo Available Today

Dragon Quest XI S Gets Huge Demo Available Today

On the fence about playing Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of An Elusive Age - Definitive Edition, the expanded version of the well-received 2018 RPG? Square Enix has given players ample time to figure it out. A demo for the upcoming game is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam and provides an hours-long argument for why you should give the full game a shot. 

The demo consists of the game’s entire opening chapters; a chunk Square says could take around 10 hours to complete. Since that’s enough time for players to get the story moving in earnest, all progress will carry over to the full game. Best of all, Square promises demo players will receive special rewards when they boot up the full release. That’s probably the best way to give players real sense of a title that takes 60-80 hours to complete. 

The original version of Dragon Quest XI originally released August 2018. It stars the nameless hero and Smash Bros. competitor...Hero on a quest to discover the destiny behind his hidden power. The S edition first arrived on Switch in 2019 and features a faster battle system, more flexible crafting, a new orchestral soundtrack, and Japanese voice-overs. Additionally, the expanded story boasts new side-stories for your party members. That all sounds great, which makes it wild that non-Switch owners seemingly almost missed out on them

Days Gone Is Getting Solid Performance Upgrades On PS5

Days Gone is getting some pretty decent upgrades for the PlayStation 5. Sony's Bend Studio published a tweet that detailed the enhancements: 60 fps, dynamic 4K resolution, and current-gen to next-gen save transfers. So, if you've completed Days Gone and are looking for a reason to hop into its new game plus mode, if you started the game and never completed it, or if you still have yet to experience the apocalyptic life and times of Deacon St. John, you'll be able to do all of that and more when the PlayStation 5 launches on November 12. You can see the tweet below.

If you're taking a ride on the Broken Road for the first time, or finishing up NG+, here's what you can expect when you boot up #DaysGone on the #PS5:

Respawn Director On Apex Legends Being "More Than Just Battle Royale" In The Future

Respawn Director On Apex Legends Being

While not quite as explosive as Fortnite was at launch, Respawn Entertainment's Apex Legends battle royale experience is an incredible addition to the popular genre. With rotating events and new seasonal content, players have been having a grand 'ol time trying to snatch up that Victory Royale. For those that are digging the online shooter, there is good news: already up to 12 seasons are completely planned out and it looks like the studio is looking to expand beyond battle royale for Apex's future. 

Apex Legends director Chad Grenier recently sat down with the folks over at Eurogamer to talk about the future of the hit online game. Grenier revealed that the latest season is just one of many more to come and that the team has content planned out "all the way up to season 12" and beyond. Following  season 8's reveal, Grenier mentioned that this time marker will be the pivot to continue work on seasons 13 and 14. From there is anyone's guess. 

While that much content ahead is exciting, it's not necessarily surprising given the initial goals of any ongoing service game. Games like Warzone, Apex Legends, and Fortnite are designed to have a long shelf life if successful, so seeing the team plan for numerous seasons ahead makes sense and bodes well for those that can't get enough.
