Rockstar Games just revealed Red Dead Redemption 2, set for a Fall 2017 launch.
Red Dead Redemption was one of the biggest games of the Xbox 360 era, taking place in an unprecedented open world which continues to influence modern open world titles even today. Rockstar Games, known primarily for Grand Theft Auto, are targeting a Fall 2017 launch for Red Dead Redemption 2 on both Xbox One and PS4.
After a couple of days of teaser images, the studio has now revealed that a trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 will go live in two days time on October 20th at 11 AM EST.
From the description on the game's website, it looks like Red Dead Redemption 2 will not only feature Rockstar's signature open-world campaign treatment but also deploy what they have learned in the multiplayer space with Grand Theft Auto Online. The website features logos for Xbox and PlayStation but gives no indication of a Windows PC version.
"Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption,...
For those who were waiting for the Boss Update to hit Minecraft Pocket Edition and Windows 10 Beta today, we have a bit of bad news!
Minecraft Pocket Edition for Windows Phone and the Windows 10 Beta were due to pick up a large update today adding ocean monuments, up to 20 slash commands, the Wither and Guardian boss battles, and more. Additionally, the Boss Update will bring the first layer of add-on customization to the game, allowing players to edit existing mob's skins and behavior using tools as simple as Notepad and MS Paint.
Sadly, the update has been delayed due to a rather aggressive bug.
Minecraft PR lead Aubrey Norris tweeted that Pocket Edition and Windows 10 Beta players would have to wait a few extra days for the boss update, due to a bug that allows the game's iconic Creepers to explode through walls.
For those who may not know what this bug could entail, refer to the video of our own Zac Bowden encountering a Creeper below.

Battlefield is back - this time bigger, bloodier and more brutal than ever.
Since its initial reveal earlier this year, the anticipation for Battlefield 1 has emerged to be one of the most remarkable aspects of its launch. With many of today's leading franchises still pursuing concepts set in the near future, the spotlight has shifted over to Electronic Arts and the new backdrop for its flagship shooter franchise.
Battlefield 1 takes players back to the brutal events of The Great War, alongside revised gameplay and notions better suited to the era. As a period associated with brutal, unforgiving violence, few blockbuster titles have even attempted to approach the subject, let alone with successful execution. Amidst a genre currently dominated by human augmentations and laser weapons, Battlefield 1's change in approach couldn't be more welcome to the current triple-A shooter landscape.
But with pre-release hysteria at an all-time high for the franchise, how does Battlefield 1 s...
Halo Wars 2 is shaping up to be not only an excellent RTS title, but also an excellent addition to the Halo universe.
We caught up with 343i's Dan Ayoub and Creative Assembly's David Nicholson to discuss all things Halo Wars 2, including its place in the universe, the balance between hardcore RTS and accessibility, and to what extend previous Halo knowledge will be required to play Halo Wars 2.
It was a fitting setting for a discussion about Halo. We were sat in 343i's Halo museum, crammed with cabinets stuffed with memorabilia, books, CDs, and all manner of Halo merchandise spanning the entire franchise. You could practically hear Halo's iconic monastic choir emanating from the walls.
Creative Assembly enjoys a 20-year history creating strategy games, most famous for titles like Total War, but also cinematic experiences like Alien Isolation. 343i and Creative Assembly have pooled their expertise into Halo Wars 2, which will not only attempt to reinvigorate the classic RTS ge...
Last week, we were lucky enough to get invited to 343 Industries for an early look at Halo Wars 2's Blitz mode.
Halo Wars 2 is an upcoming real-time strategy game based on the Halo universe, set decades after the events of the previous game.
After going hands-on with multiplayer, Blitz mode and the game's campaign, it would be remiss of me to call Halo Wars 2 a mere spin-off. Halo Wars 2 is shaping up to be every bit as important and ground-breaking as the shooter that introduced the franchise, and 343i and Creative Assembly are using Blitz mode in an attempt to bridge the gap between Halo's fast-paced shooter gameplay and the strategic thoughtfulness of a classic RTS.
Here's everything we learned about Blitz mode.
Talking to Oli Smith and Max Szlagor from the Blitz development team.
What is Blitz mode?
Blitz mode is separate from the classic RTS multiplayer and campaign modes in Halo Wars 2. The goal with Blitz mode is to bring match times down to around 7-12 minutes, emu...

Microsoft has debuted a new commercial for its Xbox One S console, wrapping up everything that makes the console great in a minute flat — and staking a claim to the best-selling video game console in America (well, at least the video's title which is "Xbox One: The best-selling console in America").
The advert touts standard Xbox One marketing spiel, including the various improvements of the new Xbox One S console and a strong lineup of exclusives on the platform. However, unlike previous promotional videos, Microsoft has chosen to sing its praises following a number of favorable market studies as of late.
Embracing these survey results, the commercial's title calls the Xbox One the 'best-selling console in America'. While not strictly true in terms of total units sold, this claim follows a three-month sales lead in the United States according to recent NPD Group studies.

According to Mike Ybarra, the number of Clubs you can join on Xbox One Preview is now up to 25. This is a nice change for anyone who felt 10 Clubs was too restrictive.

After days of teasing, Rockstar has finally unveiled the trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2.
Red Dead Redemption was a ground-breaking Xbox 360 game set in the wild west, where players took on the role of John Marston in an unprecedented open-world that continues to influence game design even today. Mere rumors of Red Dead Redemption hitting backwards compatibility on Xbox One were enough to push the game back into the Amazon best sellers list, months before it actually arrived.
The brief first trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 offers a glimpse at what fans can expect from the game's world.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will arrive in the Fall of 2017, for Xbox One and PS4.

Go on a fully animated Minecraft adventure, presented in the infamous Telltale style!
Minecraft has always been about adventuring your way, and the gradual progression you make from a fledgling crafter to a seemingly invincible wizard of ores. Minecraft: Story Mode takes you on a journey featuring a hero named Jesse and their friends, in a Minecraft world full of adventures, perils and most importantly, good times - and now, its first episode is free.
In Minecraft: Story Mode, you'll traverse the Overworld, go through the Nether and even find yourself at The End. You and your friends look up to the slayers of the Ender Dragon, The Order of the Stone. When the opportunity to meet an Order member at Endercon arises, something goes terribly wrong, and Jesse and pals are on a quest to find the Order and save the world.

The release date for one of the most awaited patches for The Division has finally been announced.
In September, The Division developer Massive announced that they would be overhauling most of the game. This took priority over the expansions they were working on, Survival, and Last Stand, which have both been delayed to get the patch ready. The intention behind this was to strengthen the core game first, before adding new content.
While The Division was given mostly positive reviews, many people found fault with the game and its lack of variety in activities and dynamic encounters.
General initial reactions to this announcement have been mostly positive, with many stating they would be happy to return to the game once the patch has been implemented from the 25th October.
Here are a few highlights from the full patch notes:
World tiers: When players reach level 30, they will be able to select their World Level Tier which determines the level of the enemies they encounter in the g...
Pre-ordering Watch Dogs 2 will give you access to a bonus mission, based on the mystery of the Zodiac Killer.
Watch Dogs 2 will be released on November 15. Set in the San Francisco's Bay Area, players will assume the role of Marcus Holloway, a hacker extraordinaire. The Watch Dogs games are open world, action adventure games which focus on being able to hack into any electronic device. Watch Dogs 2 sees Marcus working with hacker team Deadsec to take down the city's security surveillance. Pre-ordering the game now will net you the Zodiac Killer mission, as detailed in the below trailer.
The Zodiac Killer is a real-life murder suspect, who spent the late 60's and early 70's killing people and terrorizing the police and new papers with coded messages. To date, only one of the killer's coded messages has been partially deciphered, and his identity still remains unknown, even fifty years later.
Marcus Holloway joins forces with Deadsec, a notorious hacker group. This bonus mission...
If you have $199 to spare then make sure you grab this limited edition controller!
Microsoft has been on a roll this year with customized Xbox gear that takes things to the next level. Whether it is their Xbox Design Lab with custom controllers or the new Limited Edition Xbox One S themed for Gears of War 4 Redmond has been making some impressive creations.
One item that escaped our grasp – until now – is the increasingly hard to find Xbox Elite Wireless Controller - Gears of War 4 Limited Edition. Let's see it get unboxed, give it a quick tour, and some detailed photos, shall we?
Although Microsoft sold out of the preorders, you can still find it the $199 controller at the Microsoft Store and physical Game Stop locations. That's right $199.

That means this controller is $50 more than a regular Elite edition, which is already three times the price of a new One S controller. Yowza!
But if you want this controller you don't c...
