Bandai Namco delays Get Even following Manchester attack

Bandai Namco is delaying the release of survival horror Get Even in response to the recent terrorist attack in Manchester, England.

The game was due out tomorrow on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, but will instead release a month later on June 23.

On Monday night a suicide bomber killed 22 and injured 59 in an attack at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena.

"Given recent events and out of respect we have decided to postpone the commercial release of Get Even to June 23rd," Bandai Namco said.

"We would like to express our deepest condolences to everyone concerned."

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is coming to Xbone and PS4

Action RPG Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in spring, Capcom has announced.

The game contains both the original Dragon’s Dogma and its expansion Dark Arisen – the same package that released on PC last year (and on seventh-gen consoles earlier than that).

A five-year-old game coming to current-gen consoles isn't particularly newsworthy, except that Dragon's Dogma is such an easy game to recommend – even to those who aren't super keen on RPGs.

Uncharted film now stars Spider-Man Tom Holland as young Nathan Drake

Uncharted film now stars Spider-Man Tom Holland as young Nathan Drake

Deadline is reporting that none other than Spider-Man himself will play a young Nathan Drake in the forever-in-development Uncharted film.

Tom Holland played the presumably disgusting part-man part-spider mutant in last year's Captain America: Civil War, and is set to reprise the role in Spider-Man Homecoming this year, and also in Avengers: Infinity War in 2018.

However, it looks like at some stage he'll have to put aside some time to play mini-Drake in what is now a prequel to Naughty Dog's Uncharted game series.

The next Dragon Age is underway, and Sunless Sea's writer is pitching in

BioWare has started work on the next Dragon Age title, and at least one high-profile writer is attached.

Sunless Sea creator Alexis Kennedy confirmed to Eurogamer that he is writing a "segregated" section of the game for BioWare, which I suppose could mean he's penning sidequests or DLC.

Or, perhaps he working on something to do with the Dragon Age tactical spinoff BioWare executive producer Mark Darrah polled folks about last year.

Red Dead Redemption 2 delayed, but here's some new screens

Red Dead Redemption 2 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 has been delayed until autumn 2018.

A PC version – assuming one will be made – will presumably arrive later even than that.

Rockstar said the delay was due to the game being the first it has created from the ground up for the latest generation of consoles.

"We are very sorry for any disappointment this delay causes, but we are firm believers in delivering a game only when it is ready," it said.

"We are really excited to bring you more details about the game this summer [in the US, winter in Australia and New Zealand].

Cliff Bleszinski's LawBreakers is coming to PS4

Boss Key Productions' multiplayer FPS LawBreakers will come to PS4 as well as PC, the studio announced today.

LawBreakers is an arena shooter set in a futuristic world where the Moon mysteriously exploded, devastating Earth and creating gravity anomalies. Against that backdrop, a war between the Law and the Breakers rages across a variety of iconic locations from the boiling oceans of the Santa Monica coastline to the gravity-ravaged Grand Canyon.

LawBreakers breaks out of the basic ‘tank, sniper, and medic’ roles so common in competitive FPS titles, and is one of the most challenging multiplayer shooters on the market, said Boss Key founder Cliff Bleszinski.

The Resident Evil film series is getting a reboot

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will not be the final chapter in the movie franchise.

Constantin Film CEO Martin Moszkowicz told Variety at the Cannes Film Festival that a reboot of the series is in development.

The German production company owns the rights to the franchise, and has produced all of its installments.

The reboot's director, stars, and plot are under wraps for now, so it's not clear if Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich will return.

The franchise was set to end with this year’s Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, which has grossed US$312 million worldwide since its January release.
