Dragon Ball Super: Broly Movie Trailer revealed at Comic-Con

By: Jak Connor | More News: HT & Movies | Posted: 2 hours, 25 mins ago

Comic-Con 2018 - To start the Comic-Con week off strong we have a new trailer for Toei Animation and Twentieth Century Foxs' Dragon Ball Super: Broly.

 

 

Thanks to IGN for providing an English dubbed version of the trailer, as the original one is in Japanese. The trailer for the 20th Dragon Ball anime film showcases the legendary super saiyan Broly up against Goku, Vegeta and even Freiza himself. We also spot the Freiza Force, Beerus and Whiz throughout the trailer, but it doesn't seem that the God of Destruction and his wrangler are going to be involved within any of the fighting, instead they will probably just be sticking to the side buffet.

 

According to Akira Toriyama, the series' writer and creator, this new Broly movie will be featuring what every Dragon Ball fan wants, "fierce combat" and of course a touch of story. Toriyama says that Dragon Ball Super: Broly will take fans through the history of the saiyans, this will be done through showcasing "the paths of destiny that lead to an encounter between Goku, Vegeta, and Broly." The trailer ends with a scene of a baby with a monkey tail, this could be a brand new saiyan, someone Dragon Ball fans have never seen before. Dragon Ball Super: Broly is coming to Japanese theaters on December 14 and will be arriving in North American theaters January 2019.

Comic-Con 2018 - During the Comic-Con convention held in San Diego this year, a brand new story trailer was showcased for Insomniac Games' Spider-Man on the PlayStation 4.

 

 

The trailer showcases the problematic future Spider-Man players will be facing, with numerous villains running around the city, and what seems like the people of the city turning their backs on Spider-Man things will be getting quite tough for players. The 'people' of New York have hired a new villain called 'Silver Sable', her team and her have been ordered to stop Spider-Man, calling Spidy an "an enemy of the people." Sable is a classic character throughout the Spider-Man comics, she first appeared in the The Amazing Spider-Man issue #265 (June 1985), she is very skilled at firearms, hand-to-hand combat and knives. So be prepared for quite a tussle when you come across her in-game.

 

Insomniac Games, the developers behind Marvel's Spider-Man will also be bringing fans an exclusive limited edition PlayStation 4 Pro Bundle, as you would of imagined it's completely Spider-Man themed. The Spider-Man symbol is emblazoned onto the 1 TB PS4 Pro system and matches the blood red DualShock 4 controller also supplied within the package. Gamers will also be receiving a physical copy of Marvel's Spider-Man and also a free download code for the City That Never Sleeps DLC.

Ghost Recon Wildlands adds permadeath with 'Ghost Mode'

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 4 hours, 46 mins ago

Ubisoft has multiple updates coming to Ghost Recon Wildlands this year, with the second free update 'Special Operations 2' launching on July 24. With it, Special Operations 2 will pack 'Ghost Mode', new classes, maps, and features.

 

 

Ghost Mode can be played solo or in co-op mode, but it adds permadeath to the game, friendly fire, and gives you the option of letting you play Wildlands without a teammate. It's a departure from the usual style of gameplay in Ghost Recon Wildlands, but those who want to have a higher level of difficulty will appreciate what Special Operations 2 provides, for free.

 

Ghost War is also getting upgraded with a new player vs player tweak that provides two new classes, two new maps, and a bunch of new features.

 

Ubisoft is updating Ghost Recon Wildlands with Special Operations to everyone, and you'll receive a 7-day early access pass to Ghost Mode and the new Ghost War classes if you own the 'Year 2 Pass'. This means if you have the Year 2 Pass, you can start playing the new Wildlands content right now, but everyone else only has to wait a few more days until July 24.
