Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order plays like a safe, conventional adventure with great lightsabers

Fallen Order nails the feeling of dangerous lightsaber combat, but its adventure didn't fully grab me in a hands-on preview.

Some kind of Dying Light/Left 4 Dead 2 crossover appears to be coming

t's been longer than you think since Left 4 Dead 2 came out, and if you don't believe me, chew on this: Ten years have passed since Coach, Nick, Rochelle, and Ellis first blazed their way across the Infected wasteland. That's right, a full-on decade—you didn't see that coming, did you? I can barely believe it myself.

The retro horror game Faith is coming to Steam with a brand-new chapter

The retro horror game Faith is coming to Steam with a brand-new chapter

Faith: The Unholy Trinity will tell a new tale of cults, demons, and horrific death.


The top-down retro-adventure Faith, we said back in March, is one of the best horror games to come along in recent years. You play as a priest, armed with only a crucifix, who must banish spirits from a haunted property—spirits who, it bears mentioning, will tear you into pieces if you're not careful. Faith Chapter 2 has a similar setup, with improved pixel art and "memorable sequences including the game's surprisingly violent death animations."
Both Faith and Faith Chapter 2 are available through Itch.io, but for the third act developer, Airdorf Games is taking the show to Steam. Faith: The Unholy Trinity will include the previously released chapters of the game along with a brand-new third part: "Aided by a mysterious stranger, a young priest travels the dark countryside to stop a Satanic cult from summoning a horrifically powerful demon."
The trailer is extremely retro, but the rotoscoped animations are pleasingly disturbing and suggest that there's more going on here than a simple C64-style knockoff—which fits pretty well with our thoughts on the previous chapters. The Steam listing also promises a haunting retro soundtrack, multiple (and secret) endings, 1980s religious paranoia, and "demonic EVPs channeled through abandonware speech synthesizers." Airdorf said on Twitter that the Steam release will also feature DLC, Twitch integration, and "extras."
Faith: The Unholy Trinity is being published by New Blood Interactive, which has previously helped deliver the outstanding retro-shooters Dusk and Amid Evil, so that's encouraging too. A release date hasn't been set, but a demo of the third chapter is available through the Steam page.

Warcraft 3: Reforged multiplayer beta is now live (Updated)

Warcraft 3: Reforged multiplayer beta is now live (Updated)


Update: Apparently when Blizzard said the beta would begin "this week," it meant "today." Invitations are already going out, and people are playing it on Twitch if you haven't received one yet but would like to see what it's all about. Have fun!
Original story:
Warcraft 3: Reforged, the remastering of the great Blizzard RTS that was announced last year at BlizzCon, will begin multiplayer beta testing this week. Blizzard said that the test will kick off with 1v1 and 2v2 matchmaking for the orc and human races, with the undead, night elf races, and more game modes, coming "in the weeks ahead."
A specific start date hasn't been set but Blizzard said that initial waves of invites will go out to people who pre-purchase the $40 Spoils of War edition. Forking your money over early (before the end of the year, take note) will also get you four Warcraft 3: Reforged Skins—Champion of the Horde Thrall, Emerald Nightmare Cenarius, Fallen King Arthas, and Daughter of the Seas Proudmoore—and bonus content for other Blizzard games including the Meat Wagon mount for World of Warcraft, the Third War card back for Hearthstone, a new pet for Diablo 3, the Jaina, Thrall, Anub’arak, and Tyrande characters for Heroes of the Storm, and some Overwatch icons and sprays.
Blizzard said that subsequent rounds of invitations will be sent out to additional players, "such as those who have pre-purchased the standard edition of Warcraft 3: Reforged." To my reading that suggests pre-purchasing won't actually be necessary to gain access to the beta, eventually. Unfortunately for the curious but hesitant, there's currently go "go here and sign up" page, so at this point if you want a shot at the beta you'll have to kick in your cash up front. I've emailed Blizzard to ask if and when the doors will open to everyone, and will update if I receive a reply.
Warcraft 3: Reforged will include both the base game Reign of Chaos and the Frozen Throne expansion, and along with updates graphics will also feature extensive map modifications, re-recorded voice work, overhauled cutscenes, and will be multiplayer compatible with the original Warcraft 3. 
When last we checked, it was expected to be out sometime this year, but the beta was also supposed to start in early 2019 and we're now two days from November, so I think a 2020 launch might be a better bet.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne gets a PC trailer and a January release date


(Image credit: Capcom)
It's not out until the dead of winter, but today we've got our first look at the PC version of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, the massive expansion to Capcom's 2018 dragon-bothering extravaganza. In the trailer below, Capcom announces a January 9th release date, and showcases a few of the shinier features of the enhanced PC port. Give it a peek.
Ultra-widescreen support is now in, optional high-res textures are available from launch this time, mouse and keyboard controls have been tuned up, frame-rates are uncapped and the game now supports DirectX 12. I'm curious how much of this will translate to better performance in Iceborne, especially considering the extra work needed to render all that delightfully deformable snow. Still, one thing's for sure: the game still looks fantastic and packed to the gills with beautifully animated elemental super-lizards to beat up.
In the trailer description text, Capcom also mentions that the first bit of free DLC for Iceborne—the horned ape Rajang, returning from earlier in the series—will arrive sometime after launch, suggesting that once again, PC updates will be lagging behind consoles by several months.
As is par for course with the Monster Hunter series, Iceborne doesn't render any of the original game redundant. Instead of just sending you to a new region and forgetting about the rest of the older monsters, it introduces a new difficulty tier—Master Rank hunts—that'll have players squaring off with tougher, more aggressive versions of every monster in the game. Fortunately, players have some new tricks to deal with them, including an upgraded grappling hook that allows them to cling directly to monsters.
Take a look at Tom Senior's breakdown of what to expect in Iceborne here. Pre-orders are open for Iceborne on Steam, where it costs a cool £41.99/$49.99. Correction: Those prices are for the deluxe edition of Iceborne, which includes extra cosmetics. The base price is £34.99/$39.99. Not cheap as far as expansions go, but I can easily see this one devouring another hundred hours of my limited time on Earth.
Update: Capcom has confirmed that in Rajang, new features for the player's room and a set of Resident Evil-themed costumes will arrive in Iceborne's February update. A second update including another monster is due in March, and Capcom plan to narrow the gap between console and PC update releases over the coming months.

Ashley Williams



Ashley Williams is a human soldier who served in the Systems Alliance as a Gunnery Chief in the 2nd Frontier Division on Eden Prime, and was later assigned to Commander Shepard's squad after the geth attack on Eden Prime. She is a potential romance partner for a male Shepard.

Background

Born on April 14th, 2158[1] on the colony world Sirona in the 61 Ursae Majoris system, Ashley Madeline Williams comes from a large family that includes a long line of Alliance soldiers.
Following her family's tradition, Ashley enlisted in the Alliance Navy as a marine after high school and was assigned to the Recruit Training Depot in Macapá, Brazil. During training, Chief Williams was certified proficient with the standard-issue M7 Lancer assault rifle and light to standard-weight combat hardsuits. She also completed certification in zero-gravity combat aboard the Rakesh Sharma Orbital Platform in Earth geosynchronous orbit. For Hostile Environment Assault Training, she was assigned to Fort Charles Upham on Titan, one of Saturn's moons, where she was awarded a commendation for her bold assault technique in a field exercise simulating an attack on turian point defense emplacements.
Drill Instructor Gunnery Chief Ellison noted her steadfast endurance and aggressive instincts, and promoted her to squad leader. Subsequently Ashley is promoted again to platoon guide after her effective tutelage of the less skilled members of her training unit. Her platoon had logged unanimous positive feedback on her leadership in a recent fitness review cycle, and fellow soldier Private Nirali Bhatia praised her focus on team-building exercises and "tough but fair" discipline.
Despite glowing performance reviews, Ashley is denied further opportunities for advancement. Having served on numerous groundside garrisons she has repeatedly requested a transfer to a shipboard posting, but each request had been denied, without explicit reasons.
Ashley's Military Vocational Code is B4 and her blood type is B-Positive. She had received genetic enhancements including in-utero vision correction (maternal predisposition for nearsightedness) and the Class-B Alliance Infantry Upgrade Package.

Duke and Snake-Eyes
Duke and Snake-Eyes take aim at a Cobra Gunship.
Among the classes included for the various characters in The Rise of Cobra include "Commando" who do well at close range, "Heavy Weapons" who possess extraordinary shooting skills but do it best from a distance and "Soldier" who are a balance between the two. The classic "Yo Joe!" battle cry is in the game, being used as an invulnerability power-up when the G.I. Joe character gains access to the Accelerator Suit, allowing them to be undamaged while attacking Cobra troops and vehicles.
