Today Fatshark and Nordic Games announce their partnership to bring the highly anticipated console versions of the critically acclaimed Warhammer: End Times — Vermintide to PlayStation®4 (PS4™) and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft.
The worldwide release is set for October 4, 2016, for PlayStation®4 (PS4™) and Xbox One, whereas Fatshark will self-publish the digital versions for both consoles, and Nordic Games will publish the physical editions worldwide.
"More than half a million PC gamers have already taken Vermintide to their heart, and this fall it's time for console players to do the same. The consoles will get an extended version that includes all DLCs released for the PC version to date" says Martin Wahlund, CEO at Fatshark. "We are over the moon to be working with Nordic Games on this release as their experience and expertise are incomparable."
"The combination of Fatshark and Warhammer seems too good to be true. We do have quite a few fanboys in our team, who played Krater, Lead and Gold, and – of course – also played the hell out of Warhammer Vermintide on PC. To say we are stoked to work with Fatshark on Warhammer Vermintide for consoles and the physical edition for PC is the understatement of 2016 in my book," comments Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director at Nordic Games.
The console version will include the super challenging Last Stand game mode as well as its two maps, where the players fend off horde after horde of Skaven in intense and increasingly difficult battles. It will also include Sigmar's Blessing as well as the Drachenfels DLC, which contains three additional adventure maps set outside of Ubersreik.

Lead Engineer Jon "Slothy" Shiring has updated Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall 2 Blog with the second entry in their Inside Development series. This week the topic is servers for the upcoming shooter, which launches on October 28th. You can read the full Blog post here.
In my previous blog post, I mentioned we have a whole new system for running our massive army of servers. I've seen the anxiety that some gamers have had since then. So, let me elaborate about how we're going to be running our servers this time.
Titanfall was hosted on a Microsoft service that ran on Azure. We considered it a big success, and proved that cloud-hosted servers are something we should keep doing. So Titanfall 2 will continue to run entirely on dedicated servers for AI, physics, and all of the player movement that you loved from Titanfall.
Since Titanfall 2 will have a bigger launch this time, I wanted to make sure that we have the highest possible scalability and reliability, and have low-latency, fast servers. So this time we're still running on Azure, but we’re also on the other clouds as well as "bare metal" servers running in datacenters. We want fast servers running everywhere, ready for you when you want to get into a match.
The heat is blazing but the snow is falling. André reticulates the splines, Theo plays the demo 100 times, Chris draws magic and Joe yells at video games in a bar. We're coming at you live, though you'll hear us on tape delay, The Kings are back on EvilAvatar with the twenty-seventh episode of the 4205 Cast podcast and this week The Kings discuss high expectations.
You never know what to expect when you pick up that new game. You don't know who's going to go far in the tourney. A few things this week had us wondering if we thought we knew what we were doing. Hell, the plans even changed mid-episode! Join us as we manage our expectations about I Am Setsuna, Street Fighter 5, and the Evolution 2016 Championships
Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan returns to the captivating grip of The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs with Split, an original thriller that delves into the mysterious recesses of one man’s fractured, gifted mind. Following last year’s breakout hit The Visit, Shyamalan reunites with producer Jason Blum (The Purge and Insidious series, The Gift) for the film.
While the mental divisions of those with dissociative identity disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being.
Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Witch), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him—as well as everyone around him—as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.
For Split, Shyamalan and Blum reassemble their core team from The Visit, the No. 1-grossing horror film of 2015. Their fellow collaborators include producer Marc Bienstock and executive producers Ashwin Rajan and Steven Schneider.
Variety has a pretty in-depth article online talking about the outright failure or poor ticket sales of many of this summers biggest AAA blockbuster films.
On paper, the film, a $140 million adaptation of a beloved children’s book with a script by “ET” writer Melissa Mathison, had all the makings of a hit. Instead, the movie collapsed at the multiplexes, eking out less than $20 million in its opening weekend.
It’s a stunning fall for one of cinema’s highest-flying talents — a director whose finger was affixed to the pulse of mainstream tastes for decades. Yet “The BFG” is only the latest high-profile casualty in a summer that’s seen a slew of big-budget domestic bombs. Indeed, red ink has spilled out from such misses as “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” “Warcraft,” “The Legend of Tarzan,” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows,” each of which had production budgets north of $130 million, along with steep global marketing and distribution costs. The failures could cost their studios tens of millions of dollars.
“The theater business has weaker prospects going forward than at any time in the last 30 years,” says media analyst Hal Vogel. “It’s encountering visible strain this summer. It’s a superhero, mega-blockbuster, tentpole strategy run amuck. There’s too much of it, and it’s not working.”
Stop pandering to actors and directors who are past their prime and make more westerns. Westerns don't cost $150 million to make and they almost always make money.
Sega has announced that Yakuza 0 will launch in the Americas and Europe on January 24th for the PlayStation 4.
Behind the decadent glitz and glamour of 1980s Japan lies an underworld of money, sin, and above all else... opportunity. Anything and everything is ripe for the taking, but always remember that more money inexorably leads to more problems. And for Yakuza 0's two protagonists, Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima, the problems are just starting. And their problems will become players' problems when SEGA® of America, Inc.'s gangster drama Yakuza 0 launches in the Americas and Europe beginning Jan. 24, 2017 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. The game will be released physically and digitally for $59.99, and pre-orders are now live at retail!

Microsoft has some catching up to do: Xbox and gaming revenue fell 9 percent year-over-year in the second quarter of 2016, the company revealed in its latest earnings statement.
Microsoft is attributing the decrease in revenue to declining console purchases and the cheaper price of the current Xbox One. This equated to a $152 million decrease during its fiscal fourth quarter. Microsoft could be aiming to liquidate current stock as the slimmer Xbox One S is about to hit stores. During E3, Microsoft also unveiled Project Scorpio, a new, more powerful and VR-capable console that’s set to launch sometime next year. This too could also be the reason why some are waiting to buy a new system.
The Xbox One has seen a troubled life. While outpacing its predecessor, the Xbox 360, in sales, the Xbox One has had some marketing gaffes. Most notably, the launch edition of the Xbox One was $100 more expensive than Sony’s PlayStation 4 and came bundled with Kinect. The motion tracking accessory failed to capture imaginations, and Microsoft quickly dropped it from the system.
For Nintendo Co., it’s becoming one Pokemon No after another.
After telling investors last week that they won’t be able to rely on Pokemon Go to bolster profits, the company said on Wednesday that a widely anticipated accessory for the hit app will be delayed until September.
Pokemon Go Plus, a 3,500 yen ($33) Bluetooth gadget that helps users detect nearby virtual pocket monsters, was supposed to be Nintendo’s one measurable benefit from the explosive popularity of the game. It was set to go on sale in Japan this week, until Nintendo, Pokemon Co. and developer Niantic Inc. pushed back the accessory’s debut.
Not only did that send Nintendo shares down as much as 13 percent in German trade, it will probably force analysts to adjust their estimates, which were already in disarray because of the lack of clarity over how Pokemon Go will impact the company’s bottom line. Still, Nintendo maintained its outlook for 35 billion yen in profit for the current fiscal year when it reported earnings shortly after announcing the delay.
The latest trailer features actor Takeshi Kitano, who was first revealed in a teaser last September. Other notable actors who make an appearance include Shun Oguri (Crows Zero, Great Teacher Onizuka) and Tatsuya Fujiwara (Battle Royale, Death Note).
Yakuza 6 was announced exclusively for the PlayStation 4 during Sony's press conference at 2015's Tokyo Game Show. In addition to Yakuza 6 Sega also announced Yakuza Kiwami for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, a remake of 2005's Yakuza. Kiwami has not yet been confirmed for a released outside of Japan.
Yakuza 5 came to North America three years after its release in Japan. We scored it an 8 in our review, earning praise for its engrossing storylines and rich settings but criticizing the less-than-sophisticated combat system.
Remote Access" is a series of videos that go in-depth on various aspects of the game. In this first episode, "Meet Marcus & DedSec" you'll hear from the actors behind Marcus, The Wrench, Sitara and Josh and also gain some insight from the lead scriptwriter behind the characters.

Adult Swim Games and Double Fine have announced the release of Headlander on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
Launch into the ultimate head trip in Headlander, the new retro-futuristic action-adventure published by Adult Swim Games and developed by Double Fine. Out now for PlayStation 4 and Windows for $19.99, Headlander has already garnered acclaim from media around the world, including IGN, who proclaimed it “...an unexpectedly great take on Metroidvania-style action,” while GamesRadar hails it as “[Double Fine]'s best marriage of concept and quality of content since Psychonauts.”

Eurogamer is spreading the rumor that the new Nintendo NX is a portable version of the Wii U controller with support for 32GB carts.
Nintendo NX is a portable console with detachable controllers
Nintendo's upcoming NX will be a portable, handheld console with detachable controllers, a number of sources have confirmed to Eurogamer.
On the move, NX will function as a high-powered handheld console with its own display. So far so normal - but here's the twist: we've heard the screen is bookended by two controller sections on either side, which can be attached or detached as required.
Then, when you get home, the system can connect to your TV for gaming on the big screen.
A base unit, or dock station, is used to connect the brain of the NX - within the controller - to display on your TV.
For more on the console's power, Digital Foundry has a deep-dive look at the chip Nintendo has chosen as the centrepiece of NX, according to numerous well-placed sources: Nvidia's powerful Tegra mobile processor.
NX will use game cartridges as its choice of physical media, multiple sources have also told us.
Considering NX's basis as a handheld first and foremost, the choice may not come as too much of a surprise - although we have heard the suggestion Nintendo recommends a 32GB cartridge, which is small when considering the size of many modern games.
Naturally, we expect digital game downloads will also be available. We were told Nintendo considered but then decided against making a system which supported digital downloads only.
Due to the radical change in hardware design and internal technology, we've been told by one source that there are no plans for backwards compatibility.
Another source said the system would run on a new operating system from Nintendo.
Finally, we've heard from one source that NX planning has recently moved up a gear within Nintendo ahead of the console's unveiling, which is currently slated for September.

Boyes joins Iron Galaxy Studios from Sony Interactive Entertainment America where he was VP of Third Party Relations & Developer Technology Group.

Take-Two boss weighs in on evolution of the industry, Nintendo's feast-or-famine cycle, VR, and his company's new indie program
The medium of video games has come a long, long way in the last three decades and the business of games has evolved along with it. Investments from major publishers in AAA projects are skyrocketing and the risks have never been greater. At the same time, however, when a game strikes it big, the rewards are also bigger than ever.
"That's the nature of a mature entertainment business," Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two Interactive tells me at E3. "The really good people do really, really well and then have the assets to invest to do really well again. And those who don't do well... they stumble and then they don't have the resources to take the big risks again and then they're not even in the game - that's what happened with THQ, that's what happened with Midway. Will it happen with anyone in our current lineup? I don't know, we have a pretty well capitalized group of competitors who make pretty good products but it could happen."

After a family moves into an old Victorian home, they discover a chest in the attic containing antiques tainted by a malevolent spirit. As the antiques slowly possess each family member, the spirit hellbent on kidnapping the children.
Nintendo’s shares plunged after the company said late Friday that the worldwide success of Pokémon Go will not significantly impact its financial results. Nothing Nintendo disclosed about the ownership of the game was new information, but markets were shocked anyway.
The stock sank 18 percent to 23,220 yen at the close in Tokyo, the maximum one-day move allowed by the exchange, noted Bloomberg. After the drop, Nintendo’s stock remained flat. In morning trading today, the Kyoto-based company’s shares were down $2.36, or 8.14 percent, at $26.64.
On Friday, Nintendo put out a statement pointing out that it owns only 32 percent of the voting power of The Pokémon Company, an affiliated company that holds the ownership rights to Pokémon. Nintendo also owns 13 percent of Niantic, the San Francisco-based mobile developer spun out of Google last year who developed and distributed the game.
“Because of this accounting scheme, the income reflected on the company’s consolidated business results is limited,” Nintendo wrote in a notice.

After a rousing reveal at E3 2016, Quake Champions has ignited interest amongst Quake aficionados and newcomers alike. But what exactly is Quake Champions?

Call of Duty storms San Diego Comic Con 2016 with new intel! Greg Miller hosts a discussion on the immersive narrative of Infinite Warfare with developers from Infinity Ward and the talented cast, including never-before seen footage from the campaign, an interview with actor Kit Harington as he digs into his role as Admiral Salen Kotch, the first look at the Terminal Bonus Map, and much more.
“Metal Gear is important to a lot of people here and as has been stated publicly, will be supported in the future in a console market,” he said, admitting that Konami had lost the trust of its fans. “It can be hard as fans. One day I hope we may earn you back and surprise you. Hope that helps and does not sting,” he added, also teasing something for the upcoming 30th anniversary for Metal Gear next year.
But what about the existence of the pachinko? A lot of Metal Gear fans have been taking it hard, considering it to be an affront to the franchise, as well as conclusive proof that Metal Gear as a AAA gaming franchise may be at an end. However, Ben very candidly answered those questions too, noting that the pachinko is a local product for just the Japanese market that fans are reading too much into, and pointing out, yet again, that its existence does not and will not impact the development of any Metal Gear game Konami may be working on- in other words, it is not one or the other, and it can definitely be both.
The official Nintendo NX logo might have been used in the recent Project Sonic announcement trailer. This would suggest that NX is the final name of Nintendo’s upcoming console.
As reported earlier, a new Sonic title, titled Project Sonic, was announced at this year’s Comic Con. Project Sonic will release in by the end of 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, PC , and the Nintendo NX.
While this isn’t the first time that the NX logo appears in a new announcement trailer, the logo that was used in the Project Sonic trailer, was different from the fan made NX logo that has been used since the console was announced last year.
We’ve finally launched the Global Trailer! Get a preview of the full story of Kingsglaive Final Fantasy XV, complete with epic battle scenes! Final Fantasy fans, now’s the time to get excited for an entirely new cinematic adventure.
I’m very happy that Kingsglaive will be released theatrically in North America. With all the effort we put into the sound and music, we’re so happy that everyone can enjoy this in theaters starting on August 19.
Kingsglaive stands on its own and can be enjoyed without knowledge of the previous games. But if you play Final Fantasy XV there are many references in the game that you wouldn’t necessarily understand without watching the film. Kingsglaive depicts the events that lead into the game’s story, starting with the main character — Prince Noctis’ father, King Regis — fighting the enemy Empire.
Along with Final Fantasy XV, the main theme portrayed in Kingsglaive is the bond between father and son. While watching the film you’ll see the love they have for each other and understand the pressures of fulfilling the responsibility of being King.
It begins with society’s perception of the King and his responsibilities, and the many emotions involved. However, because Final Fantasy is a magical world, we’ve tried to make it understandable from an outsider’s point of view — someone who isn’t familiar with the Final Fantasy series.
We constantly challenge the Final Fantasy franchise — not just with this film, but also with the game itself. We faced the continuous challenge of expressing human emotion through computer graphics realistically. So we combined fantasy aspects with modern aspects to give Kingsglaive a realistic look. We hope you enjoy watching the film and experiencing a world never seen before, filled with action scenes only possible through advanced computer graphics.
The members of the production team are huge fans of Final Fantasy, which led us to the incorporation of nostalgic Final Fantasy elements throughout the film. If you’re a Final Fantasy fan, we challenge you to find them!
Kingsglaive Final Fantasy XV is coming to PlayStation Video on August 30.

Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city.

GameSpot has word that Sega announced two new Sonic games at its San Diego Comic-Con party.
Sega announced two new Sonic games at its San Diego Comic-Con party to celebrate the blue hedgehog's 25th anniversary. The first game reimagines iconic levels from Sonic's past, while the second is an untitled game that stars classic and modern versions of Sonic in a new adventure against Eggman.
Sonic Mania is a 2D platformer that features visuals and gameplay reminiscent of the classic Genesis games. It revamps zones and acts from Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic CD, Sonic the Hedgehog 3, and Sonic & Knuckles, in addition to introducing new ones into the fold. Players who attended the Sonic party had the opportunity to try it out for themselves.
The game is developed by Sega of America in collaboration with PagodaWest Games. Christian Whitehead and Simon Thomley, the people behind the remastered Sonic ports on mobile devices, are also helping with development. Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka says that we'll learn more about the game later this year.
