Halo Infinite Could Adopt Games As Service Model

about X hours ago from

Halo Infinite appears primed to get its big debut at E3 2019, but it may be a very different kind of game. Comments from Kiki Wolfkill, the head of Halo trans-media at 343, has added more reason to believe that the studio is imagining this as an ongoing game or live service.

"We have to be able to change content quickly," Wolfkill said at Fortune's Brainstorm Design conference. "We can't afford to wait three years every time we drop a new product and have it be a black box because the games kids are playing are changing every week."

The reference to a three-year development cycle as outdated, paired with the title of Halo Infinite itself, would seem to suggest that Microsoft and 343 are planning this entry as an ongoing game of some sort. That would also make sense alongside her reference of games that kids are playing currently. It sounds like a reference to games like Fortnite, which issues regular challenge updates and new equipment between its large seasonal updates.

Escape Room Home Release Has Plenty Of Deleted Scenes, Watch One Here

Escape rooms seem to be all the rage, but what if the room you were "trapped" in was more than a typical puzzle box of clues and mysteries? What if it was actively trying to kill you? That's the plot to the Sony Pictures movie Escape Room, which will be available digitally on April 9 and on Blu-ray and DVD on April 23.

Bonus materials will be available with both digital and physical copies of the movie upon release, which include deleted and alternate scenes. One of these deleted scenes is titled "Gaslight," which you can see for yourself above before it's released.

In the scene, the police pull up to the building with Zoey Davis (Taylor Russell). The police get off an elevator and investigate the area where the deadly escape room once was. However, upon entering, Zoey sees that everything that was once in the room was completely stripped away. The escape room is nothing more than concrete walls with graffiti on them, leaving Zoey to defend her own sanity to the officers.

Fortnite Adding Baller Vehicle Soon; Here's What They Look Like

Fortnite has a new vehicle coming soon, and it looks pretty wild. It's named The Baller, and it looks like the sort of thing a hamster would ride around in.

The vehicle will come to PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile soon, though we don't precisely know when. Other details about The Baller are also scarce at present--we don't know what kind of weaponry it will possess, for example, though it does appear to have a cannon of some description.

Fortnite's Season 8 started just recently, introducing new skins and other cosmetics. A subsequent update has also introduced buried treasure maps.

Fortnite Update Adds Baller Vehicle Soon; Here's What It Looks Like

A new Fortnite update is set to introduce a new vehicle to the game--and it looks pretty wild. It's named The Baller, and it looks like the sort of thing a hamster would ride around in.

The vehicle will come to PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile "soon," though we don't precisely know when; based on past teases, though, we can likely expect it as part of this week's patch. Details about The Baller are scarce at present--we don't know what kind of weaponry it will possess, for example, though it does appear to have a cannon of some description.

It seems the vehicle itself might be a weapon, based on the short description shared through Fortnite's in-game News feed. It states, "Roll through the competition with the newest vehicle, The Baller!"

Superhero films are all the rage today, and Captain Marvel is just the latest example of massive commercial success in the genre. But not every superhero film does well.

Seemingly responding to Captain Marvel's massive box office result, Torque director Joseph Kahn said on Twitter, "No superhero movie fails." Then Josh Trank, the director of 2015's Fantastic Four film, chimed in with a fitting response.

"Hold my beer," he said.
