Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies Onslaught Mode Revealed, PS Exclusive For One Year

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is almost here and Activision is sharing yet another mode for players to enjoy with Zombies Onslaught. Zombies is a Black Ops staple and that legacy continues on with Cold War. That being said, we've got some good news and some bad news about this particular mode. 

It should be of no surprise to anyone given previous PlayStation exclusive deals regarding the Call of Duty franchise, but the new Zombies Onslaught mode will be a timed exclusive for PlayStation players. This particular gameplay experience will be dropping on other platforms after November 1 of next year as well as next gen consoles. 

Lead writer for Activision Editorial James Mattone took to the PlayStation Blog to detail the new mode while showing off a nifty new trailer showing off what it will offer Call of Duty players: 

Fallout 76 Is Finally Adding The Brotherhood Of Steel

Fallout 76 Is Finally Adding The Brotherhood Of Steel

Ad victoriam, Fallout 76 players, because Bethesda is finally adding the Brotherhood of Steel into the online Fallout experience. While the launch was beyond rough for this game, the last several major content drops have seemingly done a 180 for those that gave it a chance. Now, Fallout 76 feels like a true Fallout game and that's going to feel even more apparent with the arrival of the Brotherhood. 

While we can't (Paladin) Danse if we want to because we left that friend behind, we can at least enjoy the fact that the Brotherhood of Steel is making its long-awaited return. Bethesda has released a new video to mimic a recruitment advert for the Brotherhood for Steel. Why hunt Mothman and blast off nukes when you can join a tech cult instead? 

In the beginning, Bethesda did some ret-con with the lore which was meant to setup that the Brotherhood wouldn't fit in with Fallout 76's timeline, despite the in-game clues that seemingly referenced this faction. That changed several hundred updates ago, and now they are back in full force. 

Hearthstone's Madness At The Darkmoon Faire Is Coming In November

Hearthstone's Madness At The Darkmoon Faire Is Coming In November

Hearthstone's next big expansion is Madness at the Darkmoon Faire, and it's scheduled to arrive on November 17. The set features old gods doing all kinds of evil cosmic horror things admidst the colorful carnival backdrop of the Darkmoon Faire. If you've ever played World of Warcraft, chances are you've hit up the Faire before in a quest to score some cool tickets, yummy treats, or to play some of those fun carnival games. Here in Hearthstone, the Faire is loaded with new toys to play with!

Giant old god cards are back, with fresh styles and abilities. N'zoth, C'thun, Y'shaarj and more are going to be spreading their cosmic corruption all over the denizens of Azeroth as they attempt to enjoy giant turkey legs and flagons of ale at the Faire. These old gods are expensive to cast and come with flashy skills, but the corruption mechanic may be the most interesting thing about the expansion.

Joel Voice Actor Troy Baker Wants In On The Last Of Us TV Show, But Not As The Lead

Joel Voice Actor Troy Baker Wants In On The Last Of Us TV Show, But Not As The Lead

The Last of Us is one of the many videogames getting a TV series adaptation and it looks like the man behind Joel himself is wanting in on that action. Voice actor Troy Baker, who voices the lead in the first Naughty Dog game, has expressed interest in being a part of the upcoming The Last of Us TV series under one condition: he doesn't play Joel. 

In a recent episode of the podcast 'Relater in Real Time,' Baker expressed his interested in the Last of Us TV show following a discussion about the upcoming Uncharted movie starring Tom Holland as a much younger Nathan Drake. The interest in the show came from the question as to whether or not he would ever be interested in becoming the voice of Joel once more for the games. While Baker didn't seem interested in that notion, he did add that he would be interested in playing a small role in the upcoming show adaptation. More than that, he said "I wanna be blown up by Joel," which, would of course, put a damper on playing Joel himelf. But who knows, there have been weirder plotlines (looking at you, Lost). 

While Baker expressed his interest in a smaller role as to not overshadow the new cast, it does kind of make me want to see him be included. Not only as a fun additional nod to the games, but Baker's repertoire in live-action movies is pretty small and in the Phoenix Rising movie, poor dude got ripped to shreds by aliens. 

Lawsuit Claims Bethesda Purposefully Sabotaged Rune 2 In Favor Of The Elder Scrolls

Lawsuit Claims Bethesda Purposefully Sabotaged Rune 2 In Favor Of The Elder Scrolls

Bethesda is now being sued for allegedly sabotaging Rune 2 in an effort to protect The Elder Scrolls franchise. This information comes on the heels of a lawsuit last year where Rune 2's publisher, Ragnarok Games, sued Human Head Studios, the developer for the game, for deliberately ruining Rune 2's launch by failure to transfer source code to continue support for the game after the studio all by left the title out to dry on launch day. Now, that lawsuit has grown even more complicated as it now includes Bethesda and its parent company ZeniMax. 

The day that Rune 2 launched, Human Head Studios announced that it was shutting down for good. This was a move that surprised players and while the publisher promised continued support, this ultimately led to a very dark path for the game. While the publisher went after the developer studio first, now they are citing that ZeniMax and Bethesda Softworks tried to sabotage the launch further by reforming the dissociated studio under the Bethesda umbrella to form Roadhouse. The publisher wasn't aware of these moves, and that restructuring blindsided the company as the news made headlines.

Rambo Spills First Blood In Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate Gameplay Reveal

Rambo Spills First Blood In Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate Gameplay Reveal

Many an eyebrow was raised at the reveal of John Rambo in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, but the tortured war veteran looks right at home on his new battlefield. A new gameplay trailer shows how MK's latest guest fighter employs his guerrilla tactics to his fantastical adversaries. 

Action-fans were first introduced to Rambo in the 1982 classic First Blood. Besides being a brutal action flick, the film explored the troubling reality of veteran post-traumatic stress and the challenges they face re-assimilating into the society. Its acclaim and popularity spawned a huge media franchise and numerous sequels, including 2019's Rambo: Last Blood. While it's unlikely Rambo will deliver an emotional monologue about his horrific service in Vietnam and move Scorpion to tears, it's exciting to see what he brings to the table in Mortal Kombat regardless.
