Fallout 4 gets a release date and a huge crafting feature, Dishonored 2 announced and Jurassic World destroys Box Office records.
Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight was filmed entirely in 70mm, something that a lot of the marketing material is lording about, well we now have an opening date for that format, as the film will begin showing in 70 mm theatres on the 25th of December this year, with the regular theatrical release some two weeks later in January.
Jurassic World has claimed its place at the top of the boxoffice food chain by having the highest grossing box office opening ever. Of all time. No wonder Chris Pratt is signed on for the sequels already.
A new clip and trailer have appeared for the Ben Kingsley/ Ryan Reynolds body swap thriller Self/less which could be a really fantastic sci-fi experience, assuming it’s not, you know, terrible.
A piece of leaked dialogue has given us a look into the sort of big bad we could be seeing in Arrow season 4; he’s in control, he’s knowledgeable about Oliver’s past enemies and he’s familiar with Ra’s. Damien Darhk? Probably.
Season 3 of Agents of SHIELD will begin airing on September 28th, with, we assume, Agent Carter season 2 airing once again in the mid season break.
Ahead of James’ E3 coverage this week, I’m going to report the big announcements of Bethesda’s first ever E3 conference.
First up, Dishonored 2 was announced. Set some time in the future, with revolt and pestilence once again rife, the game will see Emily Kaldwin all grown up and gifted powers by the Outsider taking the fate of the city into her own hands. We see some of the familiar gadgets and abilities in the announcement trailer alongside new doo-hickeys too.
Alongside that, Dishonored Definitive Edition was announced to be released for current gen this autumn and will be a remastering of the game as well as (we assume,) the DLC.
Fallout 4 news though; release date of November 10th of THIS YEAR. Which is barely any time at all when you think about how long we’ve been waiting for the likes of Arkham Knight since its announcement. It will have a lot of focus on crafting, with every item you find in the world having a use, though we’re assured this isn’t ‘necessary’ and is an optional part of the game, who wouldn’t want to make their own thriving wasteland settlement? It’s like Civilisation, with more super mutants. One more thing you can customise? Your character’s power armour.
If you liked the sound of that and want to see more, head on over to Kotaku for a comprehensive Bethesda run down, along with videos, trailers and more sweet sweet details.
