Before you fire up the warrior spirit within you for the Marching Fire, let's take a look at the details of this upcoming expansion and update.

The developer team actually planned to remaster the game earlier before the release and it was never meant to be taken as new maps. Players should look at these maps as the ones they have already played but it should give a better feeling after the visual upgrade.

For example, when in Valkenheim map, it should feel cold around as well as look like it and it is carried out with a sense of temperature. The land of Ashfeld on the other hand should convey warmth to seem more realistic in details of visual aspects.

Rooftops or the ground of Temple Garden is now covered in more snow and it will feel like a cold winter there. Particular pieces of every texture are improved with more precision and source of lighting allows you to notice these all too clear.

Even when battling in dark areas, there will be some light coming from windows or vantage points and makes your surroundings less flat than usual. This is an overhaul that updates all in-game multiplayer maps as well content from story mode.

All players who have already joined the medieval fighting game can access to the graphical upgrade and the newly introduced 4v4 Breach mode to play attack and defense tactics. This gives you the vibe of either defending your own fortress or raiding one.

The expansion of Marching Fire adds 4 new heroes of a Chinese-influenced new faction, Wu Lin and a new Arcade mode on October 16 for the price of $29.99 only. Everyone else can unlock these new heroes later on from October 30 in exchange for 15,000 Steel each.

Although the original game had multiplayer options, the re-release will ditch that and will be single-player only experience. Besides that, the developers didn't just cram the whole thing into a headset to be done with and did a lot of research about what they are up to instead.

After bringing the game to PlayStation 4 in 2016 The Handsome Collection, Gearbox Software were immediately convinced of using the advantage of the system and tap into PS VR’s full potential to present the fans something great and here they are now.

Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far Announced for PS4

A collection of 9-game from the long-running Kingdom Hearts franchise is coming to PS4 later this month.

Upcoming crossover action role-playing game Kingdom Hearts III from developer/publisher Square Enix is set for a release window of January 2019, aiming for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. If you are new to the series, chances are that you have a lot to catch up as this is the twelfth installment of the series.

However, Square Enix has made it easy to help you get hold of the complex timeline by announcing a collection of games into one titled Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far for PS4, coming on October 30, 2018.

Since the first game of the series was released in 2002, it has been difficult for fans to keep up with the story premise of Kingdom Hearts. The Story So Far collects every important piece together for the price of $39.99 and doesn't require anything else. Let's take a look at the games added to the compilation.

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX

  • Kingdom Hearts Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories
  • Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (HD Remastered cinematics)
  • Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final MIX
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (HD Remastered cinematics)

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue

  • Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD
  • Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep –A fragmentary passage–
  • Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover (movie)

RELATED: The Last of Us: Outbreak Day 2018

Although these are an assortment of old games you've played before, updates and minor changes are added along with HD graphics to deliver a refreshing experience to the fans. Even a feature-length film is also included in the package and it is available for pre-order now.

Unfortunately, they didn't announce an Xbox version of the collection and considering how the entire franchise has built up its legacy on PlayStation consoles throughout the years, players on Xbox are the ones who probably needed it the most to catch up with the adventures of Sora, Donald Duck and Goofy.

Until now, there hasn't been a single collection that offered every important part of the overall story and The Story So Far is the most complete bundle ever. Only problem it has is that the games are not listed in chronological order and there are no new content in it.

As you wait for Kingdom Hearts III to arrive and characters from Disney, Final Fantasy, Pixar and The World Ends with You to reunite on January 2019, you have two more months in between to get yourself introduced to the entire plot of the franchise and maybe try to figure out which comes after which.

Death Stranding Introduces Troy Baker's Character

A brand-new video from Death Stranding shown at Tokyo Game Show 2018 presentation reveals Troy Baker's character in the game.

The last time we had a peak at the upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive action game Death Stranding was at E3 2018 press conference, where we saw an ever expanding cast with some more details on the main character.

For long, there was no more update regarding development progress of the game and developer Kojima Productions has been working with their heads down until they got us something spectacular to show at the recent stage of Tokyo Game Show 2018.

Today, Kojima Productions have showcased a brand-new trailer titled "The Man in The Golden Mask" that introduces Troy Baker's character to the game.



RELATED: Death Stranding Teaser Trailer

Opening of the video shows Sam Porter Bridges headed for another of his deliveries with a human female on his back and we get our first-look at the character Troy Baker (Mortal Kombat X, Resident Evil 6) is playing who comes out of nowhere greeting the protagonist.

He wears a golden skull-mask and sports a look similar to Psycho Mantis-esque figure we saw in the teaser trailer. Their conversation suggests that these two have crossed paths before in the game and that definitely wasn't pleasant for the protagonist.

The mysterious antagonist then takes off his mask and hit the ground with it for some deathly spirits to appear around within a swirl of black goo at his feet and then hold the mask in the air above to conjure up a giant Hellhound-like beast wearing a golden mask.

While laughing, he warns that the beast looks hungry and the only way to make it out alive is to not getting eaten by it. Leaving Sam Porter to deal with it, he then disappears putting his mask back on, leaving the fate of this confrontation unknown.

Aside from already having a superstar cast on board, game director Hideo Kojima recruited Emily O'Brien (Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, League of Legends) and Troy Baker back in February for his most anticipating upcoming release.

Also, voice actor Tommie Earl Jenkins (Patriot Games, The Bourne Identity) have confirmed his involvement in the game and revealed the news seven months after being cast via a recent Tweet which includes an artwork of his character.

French actress Léa Seydoux (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Spectre) and Lindsay Wagner (Bionic Woman, Six Million Dollar Man) also made short appearance in the E3 2018 gameplay trailer in their unspecified roles.
