Battlefield 5 is back in the muck of World War 2, and while DICE didn't pull any sort of big pivot—except announcing a battle royale mode to be added post-launch—some of the series' core systems are being redesigned dramatically. If you don't already play Battlefield, these adjustments may not seem like big deals, but they are. Squad play is much more emphasized, reviving has been overhauled, the animation system has had a ton of work, co-op is returning, and that's not the half of it.As usual with EA, there's a somewhat complicated release schedule for Battlefield 5, which is out this month after being delayed from October.

Goal 4 movie release date
The only thing worse than finding yourself trapped in a shadowy house with a knife-wielding serial killer is finding yourself trapped in the endless scroll of Netflix’s horror movie selection. “Violent movies”? “Ominous movies”? “Because we heard you watched the new Halloween”? Netflix’s horror subgenre breakdowns are as fun to wade through as a swim in Crystal Lake. Do not be afraid: We are here to help. Assuming you’ve experienced Clive Barker’s classic gore-fest Hellraiser; Stanley Kubrick’s supernatural Stephen King classic The Shining; the post-modern romp Cabin Fever; and last year’s hit cannibalism drama Raw, we’ve slashed our way through the horror offerings on Netflix to find you 23 movies worth an evening ... alone ... with the lights off ... and surely no one watching you through the window ... The Ritual (2017) Even in our post-Cabin in the Woods world, there are still opportunities for clever … [Read more...] about The absolute best horror movies now on Netflix
Martin Wahlund is the CEO and co-founder of Swedish game developer Fatshark. Martin was also CEO and co-founder of game engine developer Bitsquid acquired by Autodesk in 2014. When we first started Fatshark, a lot of talented developers were leaving the industry because of a lack of work-life balance, so we wanted to create a home for experienced developers looking for more normal hours. We started out as a team of subcontractors helping companies with programming on AAA titles, and then took on self-published titles. Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide is our first big project, and it’s exactly the type of game we want to continue developing – a first-person multiplayer with RPG elements and melee combat. As passionate fans of the Warhammer Fantasy IP, our team always wanted to create a Warhammer game – one that would stay true to the beautifully dark atmosphere of the world but also from a first-person perspective. Our idea for the game came in 2003, … [Read more...] about Postmortem: Fatshark’s Warhammer: End Times
Shaun McCabe is the game director for Ratchet & Clank (PS4), and the production director at Insomniac Games’ studio in Durham, North Carolina. Chad Dezern is the Creative Director for Ratchet & Clank (PS4), and the studio director of the North Carolina location. The two also co-directed Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One (2011), Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault (2012), Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus (2013). *** Sure, it seems obvious now. Of course there should be a Ratchet & Clank game to tie in with the major motion picture. But Ratchet & Clank for the PlayStation 4—designed as a killer one-two punch alongside the film, the ultimate version of an origin story—didn’t always seem like such a great idea. Of course, we were thrilled when we heard that the film was a go. We’ve long felt that Ratchet, Clank, Qwark, and their Solana galaxy milieu had all of the action, humor, pathos, and just plain But … [Read more...] about Ratchet & Clank (2016) postmortem
Netflix has always done well out of being perceived as the cheeky young upstart, the brave disruptor of a stale status quo. A service that lives or dies by how well it can drive and maintain subscriptions, Netflix has a long history of delivering cool, unexpected events designed to prove just how dynamic, fresh, exciting, and in-tune with the modern media enthusiast it really is, compared to the slow, unswerving old-guard. There was the early championing of much-loved, but decidedly dead, culty shows, whose audiences had long felt neglected by their original owners. The resurrection of Arrested Development made Netflix an instant hero, regardless of the eventual quality of season 4. As did the service's at-the-time unprecedented move of securing day-and-date, ‘live’ broadcast of the final season of Breaking Bad for long-deprived, spoiler-fearing UK audiences, in step with the show’s US airdates. And then there were the many, many revivals of nostalgia … [Read more...] about Cloverfield, Annihilation, and Mute: Do Netflix’s big name movies make it a real Hollywood rival, or is it all just expensive smoke and mirrors?
