Needless to say that, this is an update that no one could have possibly expected but still, it is here sneaking up on us like members of the secret society of assassins. The first thing we get to celebrate is armor and gear themed on Assassin's Creed.

You can get your hands on "Bayek Layered Armor" or "Assassin’s Hood" tool based on Bayek and Ezio Auditore from Assassin's Creed Origins and Assassin's Creed II respectively by taking part into the limited-time quest called "SDF: Silent, Deadly and Fierce".

SDF quest will pit you against three of the most aggressive creatures of the game; Odogaron, Deviljho and an elder dragon Lunastra for a face off. When you will enter the arena, the first two will appear right there and the third one only comes up once they are beat.

Despite the gameplay require everyone to be strategic; SDF can be considered as simple beat down at best. Anyone alone can play fool with the two if they want but since others will be playing online, no one is stopping you from trying your luck on multiplayer.

When the Armory attendant Smithy of MHW, he will also offer players "Assassin’s Hood" before sending them to collect another Senu's Feather. Apparently, both of these themed armor and gear requires two of the items and you need more than one SDF quest to complete.

The official plot synopsis for the film is also revealed by distribution company Screen Gems recently, which is as follows.

Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When Lt. Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her loyal soldiers are transported from our world to the new world, the unflappable lieutenant receives the shock of her life. In her desperate battle for survival against enormous enemies with incredible powers and unstoppable, revolting attacks, Artemis will team up with a mysterious man who has found a way to fight back.

The image features Milla Jovovich as Lt. Natalie Artemis, an original character created solely for the film and not from the game series. Actor Tony Jaa (Ong-Bak, Tom-Yum-Goong) appears as one of skilled warriors that battles large monsters called The Hunter.

Artemis is shown carrying a pair of Dual Blades on her back, a carving knife on thigh and a Slinger on left arm that she showed off earlier on Instagram. Hunter is seen wielding an iconic Giant Jawblade from the game and a Great Hunter's Bow, a look inspired from the Field Team Leader of Monster Hunter: World.

Anderson said in an interview from the set in South Africa that even though the character Artemis is an original character who never existed in the game, her armor and equipment will take direct inspiration from the game franchise.

Take Artemis' chest piece for instance as the Odogaron chest piece takes reference from Monster Hunter: World and the embossing designs are similar as well. Her different outfit only means that she is an avatar of audience that can be customized with different sets.

Although Jovovich herself has been posting photos from the set of the movie for some time that gave us some early glance, none of them actually revealed anything other than what sort of direction the movie is going for or what character are in there.

Shooting at South Africa's Atlantis Dunes, Anderson chose the location for its likeness to the Wildspire Waste from the games. He also plans on showcasing a multiple topographical locations in the film to keep par with the game.

Anderson and Jovovich are teaming up once again after their commercially successful stint on video game adaptations of Resident Evil franchise from Capcom. Aside from Jovovich and Jaa, the film also includes actors Diego Boneta, Meagan Good and Ron Perlman in supporting cast.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate Free Demo on Switch

Fans of Monster Hunter series gets to enjoy a free game demo of MHGU on Nintendo Switch prior to release.

A little while ago, developer/publisher Capcom announced their decision of porting action role-playing game Monster Hunter Generations to Nintendo Switch as Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate. The game has already debuted for Japan last year and waiting for a worldwide release on August 28, 2018. Ahead of their scheduled release date on Nintendo next gen handheld console, a free demo will be available at eShop for all the eagerly waiting Switch owners from August 16th.

The title is not just a mere port of the 2015 Nintendo 3DS game Monster Hunter Generations but an expanded version, which is also enhanced with brand-new additional content that fans will appreciate. Apparently, when it was on the 3DS platform, there were 73 monsters rampaging around and now that count has been upped by another 20, making it a total of 93. Also, there are two new Hunting Styles called, Brave and Alchemy you need to learn aside from newly added Hunter Arts.

Back then, when it was originally released in 2016, the game was quite successful despite having popularity within a relatively small fan-base and thus, started to gain extensive recognition. Upon the release of Monster Hunter: World in early 2018, this action-RPG franchise has eventually become a global phenomenon. However, seasoned players of MHW should take time getting into the gameplay of MHGU as there are more hunting styles to master and many monsters to slay.

Many who have came to know about the series playing MHW this year may find MHGU very different but should not worry at all as the game is on Switch. So, you can carry it around and can get started anywhere in your free time. Known giants like Barioth, Congalala and Diablos have joined in Generations with two new additional monsters; Valstrax and Ahtal-Ka. Capcom reveals that the demo will feature all six Hunting Styles to keep you going until it arrives to your consoles soon.

Previously, MHW entered in similar timed events with Capcom games and other third-party titles like Devil May Cry, Horizon Zero Dawn, Mega Man and Street Fighter. However, crossing over with something as big as Final Fantasy is surely an extravaganza for fans of the franchise. Besides, this collaboration event is long due because producer Ryozo Tsujimoto of MHW and director Naoki Yoshida of FFXIV have envisioned something like this back in 2011 while focusing on their own projects.
