Space Thriller Observation Gets A Release Date And A Haunting New Trailer

No Code's space thriller Observation got a haunting new trailer and a release date today during PlayStation's very first State of Play.

We've seen space station intrigue explored before in video games, but Observation, which launches on May 21, adds a new twist: you aren't on the space station, you are the space station, assuming the role of an artificial intelligence named S.A.M. who helps a lone survivor figure out what happened to her crew. As S.A.M., you'll control the station's systems, cameras, and tools to solve the mystery.

Avengers: Endgame Is Over Three Hours Long

According to an AMC listing for the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, the much-anticipated finale to Marvel's decade-long and multi-movie cinematic universe's 22-movie run so far, the movie will run for 182 minutes, or three hours and two minute. This clocks it as the biggest Marvel movie yet, besting its first part by 33 minutes.

Marvel movie chief Kevin Feige previously said the movie would be "the perfect length" and that they were not concerned about time constraints. It seems Marvel and the Russos are definitely making the movie they want to make without worrying too much about runtimes.

Don't bring too big a drink in with you and get comfortable when Avengers: Endgame releases on April 26.

Ready Set Heroes Launches Later This Year For PlayStation

During Sony's State of Play stream it announced a new dungeon crawler, Ready Set Heroes, being developed internally for release later this year.

The game appears to be your standard cooperative Diablo-style game, but in Ready Set Heroes, there is also a second, opposing team running through the same exact dungeon at the same time, racing to be the first to the end. Once there, you duke it out for some of that sweet loot, but the first team there will have the advantage in the final arena battle. 

No more specific release was given, but it will release exclusively on PS4 in 2019.

Bethesda Confirms Upcoming Games Will Come To Steam

Bethesda Confirms Upcoming Games Will Come To Steam

It seems a war between different types of PC game launchers and storefronts is brewing, though not everyone is eager to signal an intention to fight. While Bethesda has had their own launcher for some time now, the publisher seems willing to back off that idea and bring their games back to Steam with an announcement that their upcoming portfolio and previous notable omissions are heading to Valve's digital distribution store.

In December, third party sites gave an indication that Rage 2 would not be appearing on Steam by saying keys are only guaranteed to work on the Bethesda launcher. The publisher's silence, combined with the fact that Fallout 76 skipped Steam, lead people to believe the post-apocalyptic shooter, err, the post-apocalyptic shooter with pink in it would not appear on the store. Not so, says Bethesda. Rage 2 and Doom Eternal will be hitting Steam, as well as Wolfenstein: Youngblood, VR experience Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot, and last year's Fallout 76 will all be on Steam.

Bethesda did not say whether or not the games would also appear on Epic Games Store.

At today's Apple event, the world's largest consumer tech company announced a new gaming initiative designed around surfacing and developing considerable paid games on iOS devices. The subscription service takes upcoming games and adds them to an Arcade tab in the app store for subscribers to pick from.

The service was rumored in January of this year, suggesting that Apple was looking to surface paid games lost among all the free-to-play titles on the app store. Apple Arcade takes those paid games and puts them together in a service not unlike Microsoft's Game Pass, allowing users to play whatever they want, all playable offline. 

The company also clarified that there will be no ads in any games on Apple Arcade.
