Days Gone reveals new world details and special collectors editions of the game

To do this, they have released the first of a series of videos that talks about the game, this time its all about the world.



I had the chance to play the game at E3 last year and came away impressed, hopefully the full game matches the expectations that I now have set. But if that was not enough news for you, they have also announced to special editions of the game.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid announced - coming this April


Almost out of nowhere, thanks to a leak, Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid has been confirmed as coming this April to Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with a PC release coming later in the year. The best news, the game supports cross-platform, meaning no matter where you play, you should always find an opponent.



Power Ranger: Battle for the Grid is an easy to learn but hard to master fighting game that delivers a modern take on the Power Rangers franchise. Featuring a streamlined combat system, the game welcomes newcomers to the genre with simplified controls, while maintaining depth and detail for more intense and experienced competitors. Players will be challenged to test their skills online against friends and other players around the world, providing endless replayability. With new content and game modes releasing throughout the year, the game will continuously offer the community new ways to play and compete.

“Power Rangers fans have been asking for a high fidelity fighting game on console and PC that match up iconic Rangers and villains across the expansive Power Rangers multiverse for quite some time now,” said Taehoon Kim, co-founder and CEO of nWay. “We wanted to deliver this to the fans and make sure it has cross-play and cross-progression capabilities as we believe playing with friends across multiple platforms at the same time is where the future of gaming is headed.”

“Since the acquisition of the Power Rangers IP, we’ve been looking forward to bringing Power Rangers fans memorable experiences. With Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, we’re expanding the portfolio of great Power Rangers games to more platforms,” said Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Business Affairs at Hasbro.

“The Power Rangers have proven to be an enduring global phenomenon among audiences of all ages,” said Daniel Engelhardt, Senior Vice President of Interactive Ventures & Games at Lionsgate. “We are excited to build upon our successful mobile game, Power Rangers: Legacy Wars, to offer a unique opportunity for fans to enjoy a new cross-platform fighting game experience on console and PC.”

With cross-play across multiple platforms, all players whether on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch or PC, will be in the same player pool and will have the ability to compete against each other in real-time. Even when players change their platform, their mission progress they have worked to achieve will still be available to them, allowing for cross-progression and true seamless gameplay no matter where they play.

Sega and Creative Assembly have released a new trailer for Total War: Three Kingdoms, which shows off some of the ways spies can help you achieve total domination.



In Three Kingdoms, your most guileful characters can sneak behind enemy lines to poison, assassinate, and even incite war. They'll have to keep a low profile at first, sharing smaller secrets like the movement of enemy troops. But, once they rise through the ranks, they can bring your foes to their knees.

Be warned: treachery isn't without its perils. If a spy is caught in the action, they risk brutal execution. Of course, they can always betray you to save themselves, returning to you as an extra devious double agent. Is your star general fighting for your glory, or is another another hand pulling the strings?

They never said unifying China would be easy... The game is out for PC on March 7th.
