The Uncharted movie gets one last trailer

A thief’s origin.

There’s not much time left until Uncharted  hits theaters, and Sony Pictures wants everyone to know it.

In what is probably Uncharted’s  final trailer, we get a clearer look at what the story entails. Much like Paramount’s Halo TV seriesUncharted isn’t following any of the plotlines from the games. Instead, it’s a prequel explaining how Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) came to be the dashing rogue we all know and love. Loads of  bad video game adaptations  deviate from the source material, so hopefully, this one isn’t following suit.

Check out the last Uncharted  trailer for yourself below, or head over to YouTube for a high-quality mirror  here.

Filming Uncharted  was brutal  for Tom Holland, evident by all those  giant blue cubes  beating the actor up. Though if nothing else, moviegoers are probably in for loads of quality stuns and set pieces. It’s fitting since Uncharted  has always cribbed from classic films like Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Coinciding with this trailer is the release of the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves  collection  on PS5, which brings together Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End  and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy  into  one beautiful package. Anyone with  PS4 files data can transfer  their data to PS5 too. 

Uncharted is coming out on Feb. 18 exclusively in theaters.

Here are some handy Pokémon Legends: Arceus tips and tricks to get you started on your journey across ancient Sinnoh.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus – How to redeem codes, use Mystery Gift

Here’s how to unlock the online functionality you need to use Mystery Gift in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and what you can receive right now.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is finally out and has completely changed the Pokémon game. New Pokémon, familiar Pokémon with new variants and types, a completely overhauled battle system, a brand new open-world to explore, and a more story-focused approach than previous games in the series. 

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is brand new in dozens of ways, but a few things still remain the same, like the familiar Mystery Gift function. In Legends: Arceus you can redeem online codes and promotions to get free cosmetic items and even Pokémon – but you need to unlock the ability to do so first. 

Players who pre-ordered Pokémon Legends: Arceus can get free Heavy Balls and cosmetic items depending on the retailer they purchased the game from, and even digital buyers will get a bonus item code from Nintendo in their emails. If you need to know how to redeem codes and Mystery Gift items, just read through our guide below.

Watch Boba Fett chase bounties in this alleged Star Wars 1313 footage

The missing pages from Boba’s book.

Few video game cancellations have hurt as Star Wars 1313’s  did, but at least we can finally see what it looked like in motion.

The Vault, a YouTube channel dedicated to Battlefront  content, recently shared alleged gameplay footage of the (regrettably) canceled Star Wars 1313. In the video, we can see bounty hunter Boba Fett leaping across Coruscant’s rooftops in pursuit of his quarry. There are  massive Uncharted  vibes here, which makes sense given Star Wars 1313  was going to come out when that series was at its peak.

Watch the footage for yourself below without getting choked up that none of it will ever come to fruition. There’s also a high-quality YouTube version  here.

Star Wars 1313’s  cancellation came in 2013 shortly after Disney laid off  all of LucasArts. It was a devastating loss for everyone involved, and even the subject of Jason Schreier’s Blood, Sweat, and Pixels. Many still hope that Disney might allow another studio to complete the project, although that’s quite a pipe dream.

Anyone knee-deep in The Book of Boba Fett  will undoubtedly feel some bitterness watching the footage. There’s never been a quality Star Wars title with its most-famous bounty hunter as the lead, and no, Boba Fett in Fortnite  doesn’t count.

A brand new Pokémon title has been unleashed upon the world and queues formed outside all video game outlets this morning as hype rose to a fever pitch. Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a brand new mainline Pokémon game that eschews everything you currently know about the traditional formula. Turn-based battles are gone, the linear route structure is gone – even some of the Pokémon themselves have had a quite drastic transformation in this new game, and that includes the evolutions of the three otherwise familiar starter Pokémon. 

Cyndaquil, Oshawott, and Rowlet are the trio you can choose from at the beginning of the game, and each of their final evolutions will be a unique Hisuian variant you won’t have seen before, complete with a brand new secondary type to change how you should use them in battle. In this guide we’ll be breaking down the starters, their advantages, and what you should expect from the final evolved forms.

Make sure to read our guides on getting a Shiny Ponyta, new Trade Evolution items, and all new Hisuian Evolutions.

Season 12 of Apex Legends kicks off with an explosive launch trailer

Boom goes the dynamite.

It’s not long until Season 12 of Apex Legends  begins, and a new cinematic trailer is here to celebrate the ensuing carnage.

On Thursday, Respawn Entertainment formally introduced us to Mad Maggie, the latest hero coming to Apex Legends  in Season 12. What the studio left out, however, is that she unequivocally lives up to the name — biting some guy’s face off for taunting her just a bit. Maggie also knows several other heroes once she’s on Olympus, specifically with Fuse, who, at least from what the trailer suggests, did her wrong at some point.

Season 12 of Apex Legends  isn’t out until Feb. 8, 2022, but you can already watch the launch trailer below. A high-quality YouTube mirror is  here  as well.

We don’t know all of what’s coming in Season 12, though the trailer probably hints at upcoming changes. That’s typically the case with  Apex Legends  seasons, after all. It looks like the Olympus map will be all twisted up by the enormous device Maggie activities, which is kind of what happens when you set off a bunch of explosions. We’ll find out closer to launch, anyway.

Hopefully, by the time Season 12 launches, we’ll hear more about those  PS5 and Xbox Series X|S enhancements.

Job postings confirm Metroid Prime 4 is still in active development

Samus returns (someday).

We’ve heard next to nothing about Metroid Prime 4  since Retro Studios took over its development in 2019, but it’s not gone anywhere.

On Thursday, Retro Studios shared  several job postings, all of which are for Metroid Prime 4. These range from a tools engineer position to character artists, and all are in the Austin, TX area, where Retro Studios are located. None of this sheds much like on the project, but it at least confirms Metroid Prime 4  is still in the works for  Nintendo Switch.

It’s been five long years since the announcement of Metroid Prime 4  and  three years  since Retro Studios took over development. However, it’s not like fans are starving for content since Metroid Dread  came out last year. 

While it’s easy to take this as a sign that Metroid Prime 4 is in trouble, it’s important to remember that  game developers leave and join  AAA projects all the time. If anything, it’s proof that  Nintendo  wants the team at Retro Studios to take their time and make something great.

Plus, there are loads of exciting games coming to  Nintendo Switch  soon, like Kirby and the Forgotten Land  and  Pokémon Legends: Arceus. So yeah, be patient and Metroid Prime 4  will be here in no time!

Sony reveals new Horizon Forbidden West gameplay on PS4 Pro

The last-generation console can still run pretty games.

Guerrilla Games claims Horizon Forbidden West  will be  beautiful on PS4 Pro, and there’s no arguing with that after seeing it in motion.

Since Horizon Forbidden West’s  PS5  announcement in 2020, most everyone assumes the  PS4 versions  won’t hold a candle to its next-generation counterpart. Well, Sony revealed what the action-adventure RPG looks like running on PS4 Pro, and it’s looking damn good.

In a PlayStation Blog  post, the company announced that not only has Horizon Forbidden West  gone gold, but that it’s confident that the last-generation version will still turn heads. We’ve not seen the game running natively in motion on PS4 Pro before, but it’s pretty. Take a look for yourself below.

Guerrilla Games also released some never-before-seen screenshots of the PS4 Pro version, and it’s practically on par with PS5 from a glance. At least in terms of pure pixel count, who knows how much better it’ll run on PS5.

While most would prefer playing on PS5, the console is still a total pain to track down. If you haven’t got one yet, signing up for PlayStation Direct  is a good bet.

Regardless of platform, Horizon Forbidden West  will be gorgeous for its Feb. 18, 2022 release on PS4, PS4 Pro, and PS5.

Death Stranding Director’s Cut for PC releases March 20, includes upgrade option

Hideo Kojima’s true vision via mouse and keyboard.

If you fancy weird games that also make GPU’s sequel, Death Stranding Director’s Cut  is heading to PC soon.

After  rumors began swirling, publisher 505 Games confirmed that Death Stranding Director’s Cut  will release for PC on March 30, 2022. This enhanced version of Death Stranding will be on  Steam  and the  Epic Games Store  for $39.99.

Anyone that owns Death Standing’s  vanilla PC port can upgrade to the Director’s Cut  for $9.99 on either storefront. In terms of technical enhancements, this new version utilizes Intel’s XeSS technology for much higher framerates than was possible before. Nothing terribly fancy, but it should look better than the  PS5 release  for anyone that owns a top-tier GPU.

Several of Sony’s one-exclusive games are slowly coming to PC as of late. For instance, God of War  on PC  is an incredible port — though it’s unclear if God of War: Ragnarok  will follow suit. The Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves collection  isn’t due on the platform for a while, but here’s to hoping it’s solid as well. 

Death Standing was already outstanding on PC, so there’s no doubt that the Director’s Cut will similarly be great. Now, if only they’d port Bloodborne, we’d be all set.
