Fan-favorite character Sackboy is coming for free to the PS3 and PS4 versions of Costume Quest 2.
Sackboy will be available in the game as a hidden bonus and will have to be assembled from four separate pieces found in the game. He will be playable in explore mode and as a combat character whose charge-up attack is "Little Big Beat Down."
The humorous role-playing game pits players against an evil dentist trying to rid the world of cavities forever and a Time Wizard whom you have to fight on three different timescapes. The sequel to 2011's Costume Quest features update combat and two new features: a buff system known as Battle Cards and persistent health.
Midnight City has announced the release date for the PS3 and PS4 versions on October 28th for $15 USD. Release dates for other consoles is not yet known.
Warframe's new update, called "Archwing," releases today for the PC, and it contains new quests, weapons, customizations, enemies and a reputation system. There's also a new ability that lets players move through space without ships and engage in combat.
The two new quests are interlinked and center around obtaining new technology and unlocking the new Warframe, which has magician-like powers to transport enemies to other dimensions. New customizations include Sigils for body-art, mods for Archwings, and a new weapon skin for Soma assault rifles.
The reputation systems gives players the choice between six Syndicates - each of which provide Sigils and missions to gain reputation, along with a new tileset known as the Corpus Ice Planet.

With the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer being leaked before it was set to debut next Tuesday during an all-new episode of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD on ABC, Marvel will now air new footage instead, no doubt with hopes of keeping the ratings boost that the episode would have gotten from the trailer debut.
Tune in to Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this Tuesday, October 28 at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC to see an exclusive piece from Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Marvel officially released the Age of Ultron trailer as a generous form of damage control after it leaked online this past Wednesday. Since then, the trailer has racked up 34.3 million global views, smashing the previous record - held by Iron Man 3 - by over 20 million views in the same initial 24-hour time period.
Jobe VR wants to turn your smartphone into a virtual reality viewer for under $100 USD.
The Jobe smartphone headset uses compatible smartphones and virtual reality apps and gives users an experience in "virtual reality, augmented reality," movies, games, and pretty much anything else supported by VR technology.
The headset, similar to a DIY version sold by a different company, fits a smartphone into a viewer a few inches from the wearer's eyes. From there, any app that supports VR is booted up on the smartphone and the company promises its headset is light, comfortable, and stylish. Unlike the DIY one, which is made primarily of cardboard, this set looks a bit more substantial.
Google updated its Knowledge Graph search engine to include useful information when searching for specific video games.
The new update functions much like Wikipedia has in the past, providing additional information about a specific game's release, developer, publisher and review scores in a sidebar. Google said it won't be covering every single game with this new Knowledge Graph panel feature, but it will cover a wealth of possible titles.
The above image shows the Knowledge Graph result after searching "Halo: The Master Chief Collection." The sidebar provides the game's Wikipedia summary, as well as all of the developers involved in the upcoming shooter compilation.

Accessible under the Edition Select option, the free Omega Edition brings the game selection to a total of 6 editions. It will not include the Red Focus and Ultra Combo Double systems introduced in the Ultra version of the game, however.
Instead, all 44 characters will see additions and changes to their fighting styles.

Bayonetta 2 is finally here, and IGN wants to take you on an in-depth tour of everything this amazing game has to offer.
A while back, we went Japan and spoke directly to the development team at PlatinumGames to learn the ins-and-outs of Bayonetta’s sequel. Director Yosuke Hasimoto, Producer Akiko Kuroda, Lead Environment Artist Hiroki Onishi and more gave us a detailed breakdown into how the mechanics of this special action game work, what expert play looks like, and how they worked with Nintendo to include custom costumes of fan-favorite franchises.
Check out all of our features below in one convenient place and gain some special insight of how this amazing action game works.
Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro's Silent Hills' P.T. is still a Sony system exclusive, but thanks to Project Spark, Xbox One owners can now play a parody of the teaser titled R.T.
The makers behind R.T. have already released a teaser trailer for the short demo, and have managed to capture the haunting atmosphere of the original P.T. But if that isn't enough to pique your interest, Nicolas Cage also makes a strange cameo in the video as a terrified R.T. gamer.
Project Spark, the game-building digital playground, gives players the ability to construct unique games, stories and worlds. The creative toolbox isn't always easy to use, but R.T. offers a glimpse into what is possible with the relatively new software.
Peggy Carter just got a new friend, as Lyndsy Fonseca has joined the cast of Marvel's Agent Carter. Marvel.com broke the news, revealing the Kick-Ass and Nikita alum will play Angie Martinelli, described as an aspiring actress who befriends Peggy.
According to a new rating on PEGI, Slender: The Arrival will be coming out for the Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One.
Back in September, the survival horror game was released digitally on Xbox 360 and PS3, suggesting we'll probably see a release on the respective digital marketplaces of the three now-gen consoles. Those console releases also saw new story content which was later released as DLC on the PC. It seems likely the new versions will also see these elements included.
Last year, IGN took a stand against general intolerance and abuse within our own community. At the time, we didn’t feel it necessary to single out any particular group as being in need of special protection from insults or harassment. We feel now, as we did then, that a pervasive indifference of and hostility toward “the Other” is the foundation of our problems, at least when it comes to the disagreeable pattern of discourse on the internet. But lately, the unique symptom that is violent threats toward women deserves special mention, as it is massively undermining our medium’s growth.
Last week, Warner Bros. unveiled their full slate of upcoming DC movies, releasing through 2020. This included a standalone Wonder Woman film, which marks the first female-led feature in the current wave of superhero movies.
Now, THR reports that WB is also looking for a female director to helm the project, which would mean only the second woman ever to direct a superhero pic. The first was Lexi Alexander, who directed 2008's Punisher: War Zone. Patty Jenkins came close to being the second with Thor: The Dark World, but she of course dropped out and was later replaced by Alan Taylor.
The documentary chronicling the process of remaking one of the most beloved games of all time will be premiering on October 31.
The film will include never-before seen story elements and footage from Halo 2: Anniversary, part of the upcoming Halo: Master Chief Collection.
The documentary follows the progress of 343 as they work to bring Halo 2 into the present. "How do you remake a title that is so beloved by fans? How do you decide what must stay the same and what can be updated?" asked 343 Industries director of programming Tina Summerford. The process, she said, was something Halo fans rarely get a glimpse of.
On Once Upon a Time, we’ve seen characters transition from villainous roles to more heroic ones, but it’s often a struggle – and right now, it’s safe to say Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin has leaned back into his dark side in a big way.
During a recent visit to the set of Once Upon a Time, I was among a group of journalists who spoke to Robert Carlyle about his character’s conflicting natures and how and why his love for Belle may not be enough to permanently change him.
A new teaser for the mysterious Joe Montana Football 16 game has been released.
The video seems to show Montana doing motion capture for a video game which is almost certainly Joe Montana Football 16.
