Diablo Trademark Hints Netflix Series

Revealed by a recent trademark registration, Diablo animated series is currently in works to debut on Netflix.

Action role-playing hack and slash Diablo game franchise has a dedicated fan following that has been asking developer/publisher Blizzard Entertainment for long to make an animated or live-action series that would complement the existing lore.

Back in September 2018, there was already a rumor of this beloved series being adapted into an animated TV show for streaming giant Netflix and now a recent trademark registration has reinforced that possibility even more.

Originally the news broke when screenwriter Andrew Cosby made a statement on Twitter that he is in talks to be showrunner for an animated series on Lord of Terror by Activision and Netflix, which is deleted later and was never mentioned.

Blizzard apparently filed property called Diablo for trademark and it is listed for "Downloadable films and movies featuring narratives based on a video game and provided via a video-on-demand service", which sounds an awful lot like Netflix streaming services.

News of oncoming TV show and video games often gets spoiled by trademark registrations and looks like same thing happened to titular franchise. Recently, Cosby made another Tweet about a current super secret project that he wants to talk about soon.



RELATED: Diablo 3 Confirmed for Nintendo Switch

Following an immense success of Castlevania animated series, Netflix has seemingly lifted the curse of bad video game adaption and a Devil May Cry was confirmed on November 2018, followed by a recent announcement of Dragon's Dogma anime.

Fans of Diablo have been looking forward to something new from the series for so long, which concluded in major disappointment when Blizzard Entertainment decided to come up with announcement for upcoming mobile title Diablo Immortal at Blizzcon 2018.

RELATED: Blizzard Has Multiple Diablo Projects

A major fan backlash followed for taking away a popular title from PC to mobile devices, which caused Blizzard's stock value to plummet. Players started criticizing, ridiculing and throwing shades at the company on social media and they ended up receiving a lot of hate.

Despite their early claim of working on several projects on the known franchise, there was no announcement for a TV show, which is odd. Because, contrary of whatever reaction they got, an official revelation of Diablo coming to Netflix would have cheered the PC gaming crowd after all.

The trailer opens up with new and unforeseen footage from the game where a wooden structure of some sorts is completely destroyed by a giant, raging bull that has a fiery log for horns as it approaches our ninja protagonist.

He parried an attack with his sword, jumped back even and when it still rushed towards him aggressively, the shinobi displays a new ability of vanishing in thin air and then reappearing on his position again, ready to strike again with a fire-attack.

Then it cut backs to a prior time when he and his master, the Owl were in a conversation regarding the latter handing his apprentice a task of protecting a young boy of great importance and failure is not a choice.

Unfortunately, Sekiro gets a prosthetic after losing his arm in ensuing fight before that boy is taken. So, he declares war against Ashina clan and unleashes his deadly warrior spirit upon them to seek revenge and fulfill his mission.

Going face-to-face with deadly enemies, hostile lands and gruesome boss-battles, a world of pain and suffering unveils ahead of the Wolf. Luckily, he came prepared by arming himself with powerful tools and awesome ninja abilities.

Fans of both Bloodborne and Dark Souls series may not find familiar aspects of those titles in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice but regardless of much RPG elements, it still is a great action game with an intriguing back-story shrouded in mystery.

Activision Won't Send Sekiro Early Review Copies

Publisher Activision is not sending out early review copies for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice before until it releases worldwide.

Upcoming anticipated action-adventure game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice from developer From Software and publisher Activision is only a few weeks away from releasing worldwide on March 22, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

However, unlike many other AAA-titles in the market, reviewer will not get a chance to have their early take on the game, because the publisher will not be sending out early copies for review before the game sees release.

News came in first from video game reviewer Skill Up from YouTube, who Tweeted saying Activision will not send out early review codes until the game releases.

Usually, when a publisher doesn't want to send out review copies early before official release of a game, the quality of the game becomes a matter of concern. However, we can rest assured considering From Software is behind development wheels for the game.

Skill Up also vouched up in this matter saying, the developers are definitely worthy of our benefit of the doubt about quality given their early track records with fan-favorite games like Bloodborne and Dark Souls trilogy in the past.

Following a press event in London, the publisher actually confirmed to several parties that they are not giving away pre-release review codes anytime before launch and people have to wait until Sekiro finally releases within weeks.

Whatever early gameplay demo they released so far, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice looks a solid title with stunning visuals. Activision is most likely has done this to prevent players from getting any spoilers in advance and not because they doesn't have faith in the product.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Leaked

A recent leak on European rating board PEGI suggests Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is coming soon.

With all the recent releases from Call of Duty first-person shooter franchise like Call of Duty: WWII and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is getting popular these days; some seasoned players still yearns for classic taste of Modern Warfare sub-series.

If you were hoping for something similar, chances are your wish might come true anytime sooner as a listing for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered was recently posted for PlayStation 4 by Pan European Game Information (PEGI), only to delete afterwards.

Although publisher Activision has yet to make an announcement to make it official for all, this swift removal of their accidental listing only suggests they would make it soon and the title is next in line. Otherwise, what was the point then?

Also, the game was listed as "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered" and we can make a guess that multiplayer component could be up to a separate release. This supports an early rumor of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 to feature MW2 single-player campaign.

RELATED: PlayStation Plus Free Games For March 2019

Developer Infinity Ward concluded Modern Warfare storyline in 2011 with the release of Modern Warfare 3 but it is very much possible for them to come up with MW4 in mid-spring 2019 and include the MW2 single-player mode into it.



RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Released

When Activision bundled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered as an exclusive with a limited edition version of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, it disappointed many fans who looked forward for a standalone release, which obviously followed next year though.

Another reason to get hyped to this leak is that 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Original release of the game had a PEGI 18 rating on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, which is also the same for the rumored remastered version.

As the launch date draws near, developer From Software released a story trailer for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Following their critical and commercial success on Bloodborne and games from Dark Souls series, Japanese game developer From Software has returned with their newest release from publisher Activision, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

When the Owl found the boy amidst pile of corpses that was littered with blood and held his sword at him, the lad fearlessly grabbed the tip of it. Impressed by the fearless gesture of that stray, he took in his new apprentice who would later become a powerful ninja.

Even though it has been only a year that they came up with the latest sequel to the Destiny franchise, the developers are already on board with what to bring next on the table and looks like more than a few things are going to be changed for good.

Recently, Reddit user AnonTheNine, who has been a pretty reliable source for leaked news on the series, has shared some insights about the upcoming installment from the franchise. According to his claims, Bungie is making the game more hardcore and is going to be RPG-based.

The development is starting right now. Chris Barrett game director. Luke Smith still there in a big role.
Guardians using Darkness. Open World PvPvE areas and Europa as a patrol zone.
Just know that D3 will be even more "hardcore-y" than Forsaken. And finally they're going to push the rpg side of the game.

RELATED: Bungie and Microsoft Considering Destiny 2 Cross-Play

Alongside other stuffs, AnontheNine has also mentioned about Europa to be featured as a playable location, which was first revealed back in 2013 through a concept artwork, even before the original Destiny was released.

He didn't detail about how or why the Guardians are using the force of Darkness but if it comes out as true then it will shift the series lore to a major change. Part of this has been noted in the ending of Destiny 2 and perhaps they are faced with a greater evil that forced the Guardians to ally with Darkness.

RELATED: Destiny 2 Ending Explained

Although Reddit user AnonTheNine has been proven to be a trusted source for leaked insights because of his track record, there is still no official confirmation on the development of Destiny 3 and it would be wise to take the news with a grain of salt.

Also, there may not be an official announcement anytime soon as there was no mention of an esteemed timeline of release. When Destiny went into development phase back in 2010, it didn't come out before 2014, which means D3 is not going to launch before 2020 to 2021 at the very least.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Gameplay and Boss Battle

Take a look at the extended gameplay and boss battle of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice from Tokyo Game Show 2018.

From the very moment upcoming action-adventure game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is revealed on the E3 2018 press conference, both developer From Software and publisher Activision knew that they got everyone hooked.

Through previous video footage, we had brief glances at in-game moments from the game where the shinobi warrior displayed his feats and fighting abilities against enemy, we never really had some continued gameplay that would at least lead to something.

Keeping that in mind, creators of the game have offered a first look at extended gameplay that leads the protagonist to Corrupted Monk and engaged in a boss-battle, straight out of TGS 2018.




RELATED: PlayStation Now Adds Bloodborne and More

Courtesy of PlayStation Underground, the video focuses on a chapter from a journey for vengeance that the one-armed wolf has taken. It begins on a hilly area and Sekiro lands his first kill by stabbing an enemy on his throat that leads to a blood squirting.

He then jumps up from one location to another using his grappling hook before delivering a kill-shot to another enemy. Then came a mid-boss named Samurai General, who is strong, skilled and very patient to drop his blow in time.

RELATED: Dark Souls Trilogy Announced for PS4 and Xbox One

The game actually rewards the player for being aggressive in a fight but you have to be tricky about dodging into enemy attacks to hit them rather than running away from them and perfecting that feat may take time for some.

After finishing a few more weak enemies he takes a stealthy road to another angry adversary who is waiting to be unhinged and refills his healing bar by checking to a Sculpture's Idol. This crazy brute goes down with more stabbing and flame attacks as he is weak to fire.

Next up on his list is to reach to a castle on the other side of the rock but due to the bridge being broken, he had to take sideways. A monstrous white snake comes out making mountains rumble and hiding into a nearby cave was the best option at the moment.

Sliding through a trapdoor, the shinobi reaches to another checkpoint before confronting the Corrupted Monk boss. She is a tough cookie and this is where the death and resurrection mechanics come to play, which you can see for yourself.

The combat in Blackout Battle Royale mode covers land, air and water with an intention to make it as big as possible. When it finally hits PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, players are open to explore iconic multiplayer maps like Cargo, Hydro, Nuketown and Turbine.

Considering the game have to compete with already established Battle Royale titles like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, developers tried hard to create their own version better.

A maximum of 80 players can take part in a match at a time and whereas that number is not the biggest among other titles, Black Ops 4 surpasses any other titles in terms of vehicles and weapons variety. The game will be launched on October 12 and Blackout beta will start first on PS4 from September 10.

Although, Activision is not the first company to bring out Battle Royale games to the market but it looks like they sure are going to reinvent the field by setting a new level though "Blackout" if Battlefield V somehow fails to impress with the same type of game mode "Firestorm".

In the beginning, the absolute removal of any campaign mode from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was quite shocking for many fans but by the looks of it, Treyarch has really tried hard to compensate for that.
