A New Racing Mode Comes To Red Dead Online Today

Rockstar Games is adding extra features to Red Dead Online Beta's racing game mode today. "Target Races" combine the intensive horse-riding mechanics with pinpoint weapon accuracy. Players start with a bow and arrow and must hit targets to increase their horse's base stamina meter. Pickups are littered throughout the courses as well, providing better weapons and stamina replenishment.

The trick is not only to hit multiple targets but cut down the competition as well. Each weapon has a limited supply of ammunition meaning that players will need to choose between eliminating other riders or shooting bullseyes to gain points. But don't forget that this is still a race! Slip behind opponents and enter their slipstream to gain a slight speed boost. If you're in trouble of losing the lead, kick your adversaries to chip at their horse's stamina levels. Moreover, PlayStation 4 owners will get early access to "Open Target Races," where players are thrown into larger locales to compete for the top spot. 

In addition to this new event, Red Dead Online players get a 20 percent increase on XP earning activities. This is coupled with a 25 percent discount that you'll get on all horse care products as well. More updates will be joining the repertoire as Rockstar Games prepares to release a major update this spring

Dead Cells: Rise Of The Giant DLC Gets New Animated Short

Dead Cells: Rise Of The Giant DLC Gets New Animated Short

In just a couple of days, on March 28, Dead Cells is receiving a free content update called Rise of the Giant on PC, which should include lots of new items to tool around with. We loved the game when it launched, saying "The backbone of the experience is basic hacking and slashing, but it feels so good." Now you can watch the character run up that backbone.

To mark the occasion, Motion Twin released an animated trailer for the update that shows off the immense scale of the boss fight coming to the game as well as a couple new weapons.

Currently this update is only slated for PC, but hopefully other versions of the game will see this down the road. Even if you don't have the game, this is still a nicely animated little video.

New Anthem Update Brings Legendary Missions And More

New Anthem Update Brings Legendary Missions And More

Anthem is slowly getting more content, but it likely isn't what you were hoping it would be. Today BioWare released Anthem's 1.04 update, which brings a host of fixes to the game, and introduces two new things: legendary missions and Elysian caches.

As promising as the legendary missions sound, they are just harder versions of the already available critical path missions. Only one legendary mission is offered per day, but you can complete it as many times as you would like.

The Elysian caches appear when the final boss of a Stronghold is defeated. To open the cache, you'll first need to obtain Elysian key, which are handed out for completing daily challenges. The cache holds crafting and vanity materials. When one is opened, everyone in your expedition gets something. BioWare says that there are 67 unique vanity unlocks in the game, and that players will never get duplicates.

SteamWorld Quest Gets An April Release Date

SteamWorld's newest entry, SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech, is coming to the Switch on April 25. The game follows the same cutesy, steampunk aesthetic as past games, SteamWorld Dig and SteamWorld Heist, but this time around is a turn-based, card-battling RPG.

You can watch the trailer above to see a fight against a large mushroom named Gomphus or read our preview of the game for our early impressions. It is currently only slated for release on Switch, but will come to other consoles at some point down the road.

Awesome Batman Versus Joker Battle Diroama On The Way For $800

Iron Studios' next high-end statue pits the Dark Knight against his greatest foe. The details in this piece are stunning and perfectly capture the brute strength of Batman and the surprising agility of Joker. If you look closely you will also see the Robin's cape draped over a garbage can. Joker is also wielding the instrument he used to take down Batman's side kick. While this scene screams of of the Death in the Family story arc that showed us Jason Todd's last days, it's just a nod, as Batman's costume is modern in design.

This statue is 1/6 scale, and stands in at 20-inches in height and 20.5-inches in width. Iron Studios says its hand painted and made of polystone. Preorders are open now, but the diorama won't ship until January of 2020.

New Character Posters For Avengers: Endgame May Finally Reveal The Fates Of Every Hero Post-Infinity War

New Character Posters For Avengers: Endgame May Finally Reveal The Fates Of Every Hero Post-Infinity War

Just one month away from the premiere of Avengers: Endgame, Marvel has released new character posters for the entirety of its superhero lineup, and the photos may finally give us definitive answers about who survived The Snap at the end of Avengers: Infinity War.

We've organized the character posters into two galleries for you below: one features characters we know for certain survived The Snappening. The second gallery, which depicts characters in black and white, features heroes we know turned to dust at the end of Infinity War. Certain characters' fates have been up in the air since Infinity War, like Valkyrie, Shuri, and Pepper Potts, so it's pretty safe to assume their fates based on their character posters: Valkyrie and Pepper's photos are in color, but Shuri (sadly) seems to have bitten the dust.

Punch and kick your way through abandoned office buildings and rat-infested sewers in Streets of Rage 4. Although the game is currently in development, much of the battle mechanics were highlighted in a gameplay teaser released earlier today. In the video, the two main characters (hints of co-op play?) grapple, fling, and melee combo enemy thugs into oblivion.

A release date for the side-scrolling beat em' up is yet to be announced. While you wait for more news on the game, check out the latest Mortal Kombat 11 trailer that also showcases a bevy of bone-crushing knuckle sandwiches.
