Layden said he’d seen “a lot of feedback about the title MediEvil” and considers the PlayStation game “a really important title in my personal journey and career.”

Mega Man coming to Monster Hunter: World

Capcom just dropped a new trailer for Monster Hunter: World at the opening ceremony at PlayStation Experience 2017, showing off the breadth of the world, the characters you’ll interact with and action-packed battles with beasts like Nergigante. It also included an unexpected cameo: Mega Man.

Apparently the helpful palico buddies of Monster Hunter: World will be able to dress up like Mega Man, in chunky, 8-bit, cel-shaded style. Mega Man palicoes will be able to chug energy tanks and eat sausages, and players will be able to take part in monster hunts while also listening to classic Mega Man chiptunes.

Sony’s annual PlayStation Experience event takes place in Anaheim, California, this weekend. This time, Sony’s kicking off the fan-focused expo in slightly different fashion, with a Friday night presentation that kicks off at 8 p.m. PT/11 p.m. ET.

Here’s the official description of what the “PlayStation Presents” opening ceremony will entail:

Stardew Valley is still coming to PS Vita

Stardew Valley is still coming to PS Vita

The developers of farming role-playing game Stardew Valley are still plugging away at bringing the game to PlayStation Vita, with a portable port expected to hit sometime in 2018.

Developer ConcernedApe said earlier this year that it was investigating a Vita version of Stardew Valley, but publisher Chucklefish finally confirmed it today. The good news is that the Vita version will be cross-buy compatible with the PlayStation 4 version, meaning it won’t require a second purchase. The bad news is that the Vita port won’t include the multiplayer update that’s coming to Stardew Valley.

Bungie promises to fix Destiny 2 achievement and other issues

Bungie promises to fix Destiny 2 achievement and other issues

Destiny 2’s first expansion, Curse of Osiris, launched this week to a lukewarm reception, not least because it locks players out of content they could previously access if they don’t buy the add-on. Bungie is addressing at least one of the major complaints about that locked content: a specific achievement in vanilla Destiny 2.

A particular endgame feat — completing a Prestige raid or Prestige Nightfall strike — unlocks a PlayStation Network trophy or Xbox Live achievement, depending on which console you’re playing on. However, due to the power level increases for Prestige activities in Curse of Osiris, players who don’t own the expansion are now locked out of those exercises. In other words, the release of paid downloadable content is preventing people from being able to earn a trophy/achievement in the main game (and unlock its platinum trophy on PS4).

Kojima fans try to make sense of Death Stranding’s latest trailer

Kojima fans try to make sense of Death Stranding’s latest trailer

Part of the fun of Death Stranding is how inscrutable it is. By that measure, its new trailer, a Game Awards 2017-exclusive cinematic featuring Norman Reedus, a baby, some alien creatures and a bunch of other nonsensicalities, was the most fun one yet.

Inexplicable as the footage seemed, fans of director Hideo Kojima’s previous work are dedicated to sussing out as much as they can from it. From figuring out who that masked villain was to spotting a possible Kojima cameo, these are the latest Death Stranding theories and clues dug up from last night’s trailer.

Destiny 2 PvP is basically a laser light show now

Destiny 2 PvP is basically a laser light show now

Destiny 2’s PvP mode, Crucible, is all about the Prometheus Lens currently. The overpowered and straight-up busted exotic trace rifle added with the Curse of Osiris expansion is the go-to weapon in competitive multiplayer, thanks to its enemy-shredding abilities. (Bungie promises that a fix is in the works.)

So if you want to stay competitive in Destiny 2’s Crucible over the next few days — including in Trials of the Nine, which, yes, is still on this weekend — you’re going to need a Prometheus Lens of your own. Fortunately, weekly vendor Xur is selling the exotic trace rifle for 29 Legendary Shards a pop.

PUBG’s desert map update adds new UI, vaulting and more

Ahead of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds official 1.0 release launch on Dec. 20, PC players have the chance to get their first taste of the game’s new desert map, Miramar, on their test servers last night.

We spent an hour running around the desert, leaving behind the wide, open grassy spaces of the game’s original map and discovering what dangers lie in the desert. We immediately noticed some welcome changes to the PUBG formula that we’ve grown accustomed to over the last few months.

The Game Awards forgot to give PUBG its only award last night

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was nominated for a few accolades last night during the annual Game Awards, but the game’s only award wasn’t handed out during the show.

Upon realizing that The Game Awards host Geoff Keighley and his co-presenters didn’t announce the award for Best Multiplayer last night, Polygon followed up with Keighley this morning. Keighley confirmed via email that Battlegrounds did win the award for Best Multiplayer Game, beating out competition from Destiny 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, Fortnite and Call of Duty: World War II. Keighley also apologized for the delay.
