about X hours ago from

Battlefield V launched last year without microtransactions, but they're coming to the World War II shooter very soon. An update to the shooter set for April 4 will introduce "Battlefield Currency," which is the name for the virtual currency that is purchased with real money.

Players can spend Battlefield Currency to buy cosmetic items; they do not affect gameplay. Items that can be purchased with Battlefield Currency can also be earned through gameplay.

"The balanced rock-paper-scissors gameplay that has always been the foundation of the Battlefield series isn't going anywhere," DICE said. "Player skill will continue to be paramount with the addition of Battlefield Currency, which gives players more ways to acquire items to customize their characters and arsenal in Battlefield V."

Hideo Kojima Shows Up In Drive Director's New TV Show Trailer To Cut Off Man's Finger With Big Sword

about X hours ago from

The first trailer for Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn's new Amazon TV show Too Old To Die Young has come online, and besides looking great, it contains a surprise cameo.

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima appears in the trailer at 1:54 where he can be seen swinging a massive sword. It's not exactly clear, but it looks like Kojima is using the sword to slice off a man's finger. Whether or not he has any kind of recurring role on the show is unknown, but it seems unlikely given that he's also working on his PS4 game Death Stranding currently.

Kojima and Refn are friends, and Kojima, a noted cinephile, is a big fan of the movie Drive. He even bought a replica of the scorpion jacket that Ryan Gosling wore in the movie.
