Jordan Peele's Twilight Zone: Premiere Date And Everything Else We Know

Are you ready to enter the dimension of imagination?

We've tried this before.

The original Twilight Zone, hosted by Rod Serling, went off the air in 1964. But thanks to TV marathons and the show's wide-reaching influence on future creators, the series has never lost its pop culture currency. And it's why people have tried, for decades, to recapture lightning in a bottle. There was the remake that lasted from 1985-1989 and a second one that lasted one season in 2003.

Now CBS is attempting a third reboot. And this time, the buzz has been more rampant than before. A teaser, two trailers, a poster, and the mind of Jordan Peele behind it all has audiences and critics hopeful that maybe this time, the reboot will deliver on the original. At a time when prestige television is at a high and genre fiction reigns supreme, a new Twilight Zone has never been more likely to succeed..

Here is everything we know about the 2019 reboot of The Twilight Zone. And if you can't wait for the new series, you can watch all the original episodes on CBS All-Access. Here's our gallery of the 13 scariest episodes to get you started. Sweet dreams!

Disclosure: CBS is GameSpot's parent company.

Following reports yesterday about Bond 25's casting, including word that Rami Malek remains a top choice to play the villain, now comes another report that has some intriguing casting details.

Deadline reports that Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years A Slave, Star Wars) is in talks to join the Cary Fukunaga-directed action movie. Nyong'o also appeared in the Oscar-winning Black Panther and is set to have a role in Jordan Peele's eerie new film Us.

Anthem Update Out Now; Patch Notes Address Loot, Inscription, And Tethering Issues

about X hours ago from

BioWare has released a new update for Anthem, its multiplayer-focused action RPG. The update addresses tethering issues that occurred when playing with others by increasing the time available to catch up to teammates. [Update: In addition to this update, BioWare has also rolled out hotfixes that reduce Masterwork crafting costs and removes the possibility of getting inscriptions that are useless for the item in question. The latter change doesn't change any existing items and will only affect loot drops received after the hot fix rolled out on Thursday. You can see the complete patch notes for these hot fixes and the tethering update below.]

The tethering system keeps you from wandering too far away from your team and focused on completing the selected mission at hand. If you don't keep up with your teammates, a message will pop up that informs you that you will be teleported to your allies unless you return to the mission area. After Anthem launched, players complained the system wasn't forgiving enough and didn't provide an adequate amount of time for anyone to catch up to their teammates before being subjected to a loading screen--which also occasionally caused them to lose out on crucial in-game dialogue or cutscenes.

The new update also implements changes to Strongholds. In the Swarm Tyrant encounter in the Tyrant Mine Stronghold, you and your squad will no longer be able to reset the battle by exiting to the main menu and rejoining the session. Also, you will no longer be able to reopen chests that have already been looted in Strongholds. For the full patch notes on the update, you can check out BioWare's post on Reddit.

Layoffs Hit Dying Light 2 Studio But The Game Is Not Affected

about X hours ago from

Techland, the Polish developer behind Dying Light and Call of Juarez franchises, recently announced a round of layoffs, but the studio's ongoing game projects are unaffected.

The job losses came as part of Techland's decision to close its Polish distribution and publishing department. Techland was in the business of publishing some third-party boxed games in Poland specifically, but that is coming to an end by the end of 2019.

Everyone affected by the layoffs is receiving a severance package that Techland says is "above the [video game] industry and the Polish employment legislation standards." Affected employees will receive help finding new jobs, Techland said, adding that employees affected by the restructuring were made aware of the move for a period of time before it became official.
