Mortal Kombat 11: First Bloody Gameplay Trailer Revealed

about X hours ago from

After its surprise debut at the 2018 Game Awards, fans have been waiting for more Mortal Kombat 11 details to get over here. NetherRealm formally took the wraps off of the new fighting game with a livestream keynote, starting with the reveal of its first official gameplay trailer.

The video, which you can watch above, shows off a variety of veteran Mortal Kombat characters battling it out. In addition to Raiden and Scorpion--both of whom were featured during the Game Awards trailer--we got our first look at Liu Kang, Baraka, Sub-Zero, Sonya, and the returning Skarlet, who was a DLC character for Mortal Kombat 9. And in true Mortal Kombat fashion, we got to see plenty of gruesome fatalities.

During the keynote, NetherRealm confirmed that there will be different variations of fighters, and players will be able to customize these with different costume pieces, intros, and more. We had previously heard about custom character variations, which was a logical progression from Injustice 2. We also knew MK 11 would mark the return of "Klassic" fighters; during the Game Awards trailer, we saw two Scorpions battling against Raiden. Fans suspected that could signal some time travel or multi-verse implications.

Every M. Night Shyamalan Movie Twist, Ranked From Worst To Best

Every M. Night Shyamalan Movie Twist, Ranked From Worst To Best


Writer/Director M. Night Shyamalan is known for his 11th-hour plot twists. It started with his breakout film The Sixth Sense, and it's continued throughout his entire career. It's so omnipresent, in fact, that audience members go into his films expecting to see one, with even worst films devolving into see-if-you-can-solve-the-mystery scavenger hunts. And in true ironic fashion, it is now a twist to not have a twist in a Shyamalan film.

Shyamalan is very hit-or-miss; once praised as the next Spielberg, he made a number of critically panned films in the '00s before a much-heralded return to form, beginning with The Visit in 2015. And on January 18, 2018, audiences will have the chance to watch the much-anticipated Glass, the final part in the director's long-gestating superhero trilogy, which also includes Unbreakable and Split.

To celebrate, we're looking back at every twist ending in Shyamalan's career, and ranking them from worst to best.

Let us know if we got the ordering right in the comments. And it goes without saying: spoilers ahead.

New Overwatch Skins Coming With Lunar New Year 2019 Event

about X hours ago from

Overwatch is once again ringing in the new lunar calendar with an in-game event. This time it's the Year of the Pig, and as usual we can expect a slew of new skins to mark the occasion. Obviously, Roadhog needs to take center stage this time.

Year of the Pig will kick off on January 24, 2019. Until then, Blizzard promises to show off a new skin every day on its Twitter and Facebook social channels. You might say they're going to toss around some pigskins.

Last year's Lunar New Year event was the Year of the Dog. It included a host of skins and other cosmetics, along with a special capture the flag mode. Or fetch, as the case may be. Since then we've gotten a few new characters added to the roster, including Wrecking Ball and Ashe. Both of them are behind the rest of the crew on the full-makeover Legendary skins, so we may see some added with this update.

Fortnite Week 7 Secret Battle Star Location Guide (Season 7 Snowfall Challenge)

Fortnite Week 7 Secret Battle Star Location Guide (Season 7 Snowfall Challenge)

We're nearing the end of Season 7 of Fortnite, but Epic still has plenty of challenges in store for players before Season 8 arrives. Week 7's challenges are now available across all platforms, giving everyone another opportunity to score Battle Stars and unlock some Season 7 rewards. This week's objectives are fairly straightforward, although perhaps the trickiest of the bunch is to visit seven Expedition Outposts.

On top of leveling up your Battle Pass, there's an extra incentive to complete as many challenges as you can this season. If you manage to finish all of the tasks from a given week, you'll complete a related Snowfall challenge, which will reward you with a special loading screen. These screens typically feature some cool artwork, but what makes them particularly worthwhile is they also contain a clue that points to a free Battle Star or Banner--depending on how many weekly sets of challenges you've completed--hidden somewhere around the map.

Pokemon Dev's PC Game Officially Announced For PS4, Switch, And Xbox One

about X hours ago from

Giga Wrecker, a 2017 Steam platformer by Pokemon developer Game Freak, is officially coming to consoles. Publisher Rising Star Games has confirmed it is bringing the title to PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch later this year under the moniker Giga Wrecker Alt, and it'll include additional content and other console-exclusive features.

Among other things, Game Freak has added 20 new puzzle stages to Alt. Rising Star says the game will also introduce a new companion character "to assist players with the game’s increasingly challenging puzzles," as well as a much more formidable Iron Man mode, in which players take five times as much damage as normal. You can take a look at the announcement trailer below.

Giga Wrecker is set in a post-apocalyptic world that has been ravaged by an army of invading robots. Players take on the role of Reika, a young girl who is given a power known as ARCHE, which allows her to control debris. Players will need to use this ability in order to navigate the world and solve environmental puzzles, manipulating rubble into different shapes to create makeshift platforms, weapons, and other objects.

The Division 2's Dark Zones Are More Welcoming, But Will Make You More Devious

The Division 2's Dark Zones Are More Welcoming, But Will Make You More Devious

One of The Division's most notable achievements in 2016 was its rather unorthodox approach to PvP gameplay. Within the center of post-outbreak Manhattan was the Dark Zone, an isolated, untamed space where you could engage in timed events, small skirmishes, and even backstabbing temporary allies. With The Division 2, Ubisoft has some interesting plans for expanding the Dark Zone concept, most of which will have you rethinking how you'll tackle the infamous no man's land.

We recently played several hours of the upgraded multiplayer mode, designed by original Rainbow Six developer Red Storm Entertainment. In the first game, the Dark Zone incorporated competitive multiplayer gameplay into the core systems and mechanics of the online world, allowing the agents to seamlessly transition between engagements against AI and other players in the volatile region. The developers refer to this gameplay loop as PvPvE: player-versus-player-versus-environment. While inside the zone, there are many opportunities to acquire powerful loot, but with significantly greater risk tied to it, thanks to tougher enemies and the threat of shady players looking for a chance to steal your loot.
