Beta program will see launch on 8:00 AM PT/11:00 AM EST Wednesday, March 27 and will end on 11:59 PM PT/2:59 AM EST Sunday, March 31. However, everyone else out of Pacific Time range will continue playing till April 1 throughout the world.

Due to complicacy of different time zones, schedule time frame may seem complicated to some but considering what Anthem and The Division 2 players got earlier, NetherRealm did a fine job at planning a timetable that ensures everyone to roughly get the same amount of time.

Another thing to note here is that MK11 beta does not include PC and Switch platform except for Microsoft and Sony consoles. Excluding PC users from the arrangement is most probably due to an attempt to avoid advance leaks through data-mining.

After four years of hiatus, Mortal Kombat 11 is looking forward a massive opening next month as a sequel to Mortal Kombat X and developers are not done revealing more fighter characters added to the already impressive roster of MK franchise.

Street Fighter V In-Game Ads Return

Capcom is bringing back Street Fighter V in-game ads for their partnership deal with Japanese clothing brand UNIQLO.

A while ago developer/publisher Capcom has introduced in-game advertising within Street Fighter V, fifth mainline release from their popular fighting game series Street Fighter and was eventually removed upon negative fan-response.

Of course, people were still skeptical that it may only be a temporary move they pulled off and might return anytime in the foreseeable future. Capcom has brought back that function today to promote a Japanese clothing brand UNIQLO UT.

After collaborating with major video game companies like Blizzard and Nintendo in past, the clothing shop has shifted focus on popular characters of the Street Fighter franchise. Their collection of tees will be mostly comprised of classic victory quotes and screen from SF series.

Their initial design lineup features characters like Akuma, Bison, Cammy, Chun Li, Dhalsim, E. Honda, Guile, Ken, Ryu and Sagat from the 90's legendary arcade game Street Fighter II and current flagship title Street Fighter V.

UNIQLO UT is looking at this Spring window to launch their twelve different Street Fighter UT collection designs in stores and online alongside Capcom Cup 2019 event. They also released some spectacular promotional artwork to compliment their upcoming clothing line.

As part of their partnership program, advertisements are returning once again in exchange for some in-game currency "Fight Money" to allow them, which could otherwise be gained via gameplay but a lot differently this time.

Showing ads on character outfits, loading screens and stages was criticized and heavily rejected by fans saying the feature is ruining the aesthetic of the game that was already troubled with series of issues from when it launched.

However, they are returning to show UNIQLO's logo on Capcom Pro Tour-themed stages and everywhere else they used to, except for the characters this time. Apparently, they have learned a lesson from receiving unwanted fan backlash from last time.

Mortal Kombat 11 Adds Johnny Cage

Action movie star from Hollywood, martial artist Johnny Cage of Earthrealm joins the expanding roster of Mortal Kombat 11.

Since upcoming 2.5D fighting game Mortal Kombat 11 is only months away from releasing worldwide, developer NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment are on full swing with their character reveal trailers.

After revealing participating fighters Baraka, D'Vorah, Geras, Jade, Kabal, Kano, Raiden, Scorpion, Skarlet, Sonya Blade and Sub-Zero for the roster of MK11, it was eventually time for action movie star Johnny Cage to kick in to show off his moves.

A brand-new character reveal trailer for Mr. Hollywood is right here and he doesn't shy away from being cheesy at all when he is at it.

During his display for fighting abilities against Baraka, Kabal and Scorpion, Johnny goes all in with a variant rendition of his regular chops from Mortal Kombat X and then adding some newfound ridiculous ones in the mix as well.

Cage brings back his brass knuckle punches, Fisticuffs, green fireballs and shadow kicks only to complement his Fatal Blow where he bash his competitor with Oscar for Best Actor in the skull, leading to his Fatality move Deadly Uppercut.

RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Adds Jade

Game director Ed Boon even took his Twitter account to post a short clip of Johnny Cage confronting his ex-lover Sonya Blade, who decides to poke fun before getting into a match and she doesn't hold back at all while taunting.

Of course, no finishing move in Mortal Kombat series ever makes sense but the one Cage decides to go with really feels like a weird gore that tries to be funny. Salvaged from a Mortal Kombat 2 glitch, Johnny tries to punch the head off his rival over and over before succeeding at last.

Mortal Kombat 11 is currently scheduled to launch on April 23, 2019 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. However, European market would have to wait till May 10 for the Switch version to see release.

Mortal Kombat 11 Adds Jade

As an undead Revenant warrior from Netherrealm, classic fighter Jade joins the growing roster of Mortal Kombat 11.

Following an official announcement at The Game Awards 2018, upcoming 2.5D fighting game Mortal Kombat 11 from developer NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has said to have 25 playable characters during release.

We have seen many series favorite return to action for the latest installment that is set to launch on April 23, 2019 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. One of the newest additions to MK11 roster is revealed to be Edenian assassin Jade.

Swinging her green bo staff, this deadly warrior enters the arena as an undead Revenant and in her first fight against Baraka, she goes all out on the Tarkatan tribe war chief by beating the living hell out of him with her attack moves.

Then she stabbed down his spine and slashed his throat before sticking a knife on his head. In time for performing a fatality, Jade impales Baraka with her bo staff through his bloody head, popping his left eye out and then cutting his lower body apart.

RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Reveal Event

She shows almost the same ruthlessness against Skarlet and Sonya Blade on two different matches by crushing their bones and ripping them apart. A great deal of her moves comes from her iconic staff weapon with occasional use of blades every now and then.

After appearing in Mortal Kombat II as a hidden fighter, Jade eventually became playable in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and almost instantly became a fan-favorite. In 2011 reboot of Mortal Kombat, her character was killed off in story mode.

RELATED: Nintendo Direct February 2019

However, she is resurrected by an evil sorcerer and now back from the dead to fight once again. Her arrival may also be a heralding the return of Kitana and Mileena to the franchise as well, because many character slots are still empty.

Although she was not present in Mortal Kombat X except for a cameo, developer Netherrealm decided to bring Jade back for Mortal Kombat 11 to complete their ambitious roster. Hopefully, fans were delighted to see her coming back only months before the title releases.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Breaks Halo: Reach Sales Records

Nintendo's all-star crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has broken sales record of Halo: Reach from 2010.

Right after launching on December 2018, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate of crossover fighting game series Super Smash Bros. has gained massive popularity and overwhelmingly positive reviews, not to mention of the groundbreaking sales worldwide.

Doubled with the sky-high success of the Nintendo Switch handheld console, the game has been a favorite of the retailers and it eventually broke the sales record of 2010 platform exclusive Halo: Reach that came out on Xbox 360.

SSBU from developer Bandai Namco Studios and publisher Nintendo has managed to assemble a number of popular gaming characters, which caught the attention of the dedicated series fans as well as managed to draw general audience towards it.

Although there are no specific details on how well the game is doing on the market, reports say that Smash Ultimate has done better than any other platform exclusive titles in the history of video game for the opening month and that is very impressive.

The record was previously held by Microsoft Studios exclusive FPS title Halo: Reach which was the last of the series that Bungie developed and has earned a huge sum of revenue on Xbox 360 platform until it was dethroned by Nintendo's all-star brawler.

US video games industry analyst Mat Piscatella has shared the report from software sales tracking service NDP on Twitter.



RELATED: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct November 2018

Red Dead Redemption 2 from developer/publisher Rockstar Games has been dominant on the list of best-selling games for October 2018, followed by Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, NBA 2K19, Madden NFL 19 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate respectively.

Marvel's Spider-Man, Far Cry 5, God of War, Monster Hunter: World and Assassin's Creed Odyssey has taken up the rest five places in order. Though RDR2 made the most number of sales for 2018, Smash Ultimate set a record for launch month sales.

Without including the number of digital sales and only based on physical sales alone, the game ranking fifth on NPD list during its launch month is a feat that is not to be taken lightly. Smash Bros. also outranked other Switch games released on the same year.

SSBU having very impressively performed can help making DLC a long-term choice for Nintendo and they may end up announcing Fighters Pass 2, which is basically a blessing for the fans. The rumored inclusion of Steve from Minecraft in a Master Chief skin would be nice homage to Halo series.

If you haven't picked up the crossover brawler yet, you might want to buy and register before January 31, 2019 to get access to Piranha Plant DLC fighter for free, who will join Joker from Persona 5 and four other characters as part of Fighters Pass.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a game that anyone can pick up because of the wide range of diverse characters it features and doesn't need to follow any continuity or whatsoever but it has a competitive nature that takes enough time to master.

Mortal Kombat 11 Reveal Event

The community event for Mortal Kombat 11 revealed new gameplay features, fatalities and the first female boss of MK series.

Before Mortal Kombat 11 was eventually announced at The Game Awards 2018, the latest installment from Mortal Kombat fighting game series was teased by game director Ed Boon and then hinted by an angry voice actor Eduardo Garza last year.

The inevitable announcement of the newest title promised to provide more details on the game during a community event on January 17, 2019 and the entire jam-packed show gave us a lot of information to get hyped up about the game until it releases.

Fans already have the first look at the revamped design of Dark Raiden, Scorpion and pre-order bonus character Shao Kahn. However, the Mortal Kombat roster is obviously more than just three bad-ass fighters and more are yet to show up for sure.

Although the announcement was filled with plenty of gore, the official gameplay reveal trailer expands onto that and shows the improvement below.

The trailer marks the return of Baraka, Skarlet, Sonya Blade and Sub-Zero back to the newest conflict of MK franchise, each in a newly redefined avatar. Not only their outlook is changed, their moveset has been polished if not better than before.

Skarlet and Baraka has shown some of the most violent finishing moves on their defeated adversaries with the Imperial Bodyguard stabbing her enemy with hardened shards made of blood and War Chief of Tarkatan tribe biting off flesh from the bicep of Scorpion.

Of course, "Fatalities" are one of the unique aspects of attraction of the gameplay and here goes another trailer highlighting that.

It is obvious that the trademark fatalities of a fighter from any MK title will be full of bone breaking and flesh ripping aside from the stage getting covered in a pool of blood. Well, guess what? NetherRealm Studios have summed up an entire video full of that above for the upcoming release.

As usual, the developers got creative on making a bloody mess of each fighter at every given chance they had. All these gory showdown of kicking and screaming comes down to the gruesome finishes and to secure a flawless victory.

If you are done with crushing bones and tearing body-parts, then here is an official footage of story prologue revolves around the plot of MK11.

As we predicted earlier, Raiden goes full dark side this time and he will have no tolerance towards anyone who threatens Earthrealm. The God of Thunder decides to inflict a darker shade of justice by killing any enemies of the realm before they make any move.

Following the ending of Mortal Kombat X, a defeated Shinnok was taken in by the protector of Earthrealm to the Jinsei Chamber and endlessly torturing the old sorcerer. The fallen antagonist then points out to his captor that wearing his amulet, Raiden has changed for better.

When Shinnok reminds him that he cannot really kill an Elder God, the lightning states that there are fates worse than death before decapitating his head to deliver it to Liu Kang of Netherrealm as a sign of warning and then teleports away.

What he doesn't know is that a new, fearful enemy named Kronica arrives at the scene, who dubs herself as "The Keeper of Time" and wishes to destroy the now corrupt Elder God for upsetting balance and meddling with timeline itself by previously changing it.

Even before the reveal event, there was rumor on social media of former UFC champion and current WWE Women's Champion Ronda Rousey to voice for fan-favorite Sonya Blade, which definitely turn out to be true and fans are happy as well.

Rousey was present at the livestream stage presentation and you can also see her in recording studio voicing for the character. Given her career background is being of a renowned martial artist, we can see her fitting well into the shoes of this strong female character.

Debuting straight to the eleventh installment from the mainline MK games, Geras is shown as a force of nature. Aside from the newly introduced villain Kronika, he has some control over time, which makes him a pretty intimidating and threatening opponent.

Geras has mostly displayed his ability of manipulating other than his superior fighting skills.
The untold origin of this mysterious character within the lore and how he gets in conflict with the protectors of Earthrealm is yet to be revealed.

By now, anyone who watched any of these video clips above already knows that recurring boss character Shao Kahn will be joining the fighters in the legendary death match as a pre-order bonus character but whether or not he has any involvement to the story is still unclear.

Pre-order for Mortal Kombat 11 is now available and the game will be released for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 23, 2019. We are hyped up with all of these exciting reveals and cannot wait to see Dark Raiden in action upon launch.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC Fighters Leaked

Details of unannounced DLC fighters of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are leaked ahead of official announcement.

Crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from developer Bandai Namco Studios and publisher Nintendo has become the fastest-selling title on Nintendo Switch without any sign to slowing down on sales anytime soon and there is more to come.

Lately, data-miners dug into the source code of the game to find out what seems like new fighters roster, yet to be revealed officially in upcoming DLC. Although what they discovered appears to be some codename, fans were quick to find evidence to speculate on.

SSBU will include five brand-new downloadable fighters that would also be a part of "Fighters Pass". The first one of them was revealed to be Joker from Persona 5 at The Game Awards 2018 and the rest four remained unannounced.

Game director Masahiro Sakurai probably was to announce some of the rest during the next Nintendo Direct but the recent findings already has some strong hint for the identities of the unannounced fighters. Since they are still unconfirmed, we suggest you to take this with a grain of salt.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING MAY CONTAIN POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR SUPER SMASH BROS. ULTIMATE.

Data-miner jam1garner has posted three code names of DLC characters found within game codes on Twitter that you can see below.

Back in December 9, 2018, leaked info about Ultimate's DLC characters were posted by a user on Japanese image-board site 5Channel (formerly known as 2chan), where they also mentioned about the inclusion of Joker from P5 into the roster and his stage being Mementos.

No one really cared about it that much in the beginning but when his prediction of Persona 5 R title was officially revealed by Atlus, people started paying attention. He also claimed that P5R will be released on the first half of 2019, which we are yet to find out though.

RELATED: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to Add Joker from Persona 5

There was also unconfirmed claim for four new characters joining the roster of SSBU and they are Doomguy of the Doom series, Erdrick from the Dragon Quest series, Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden and the default player character Steve of Minecraft.

The claim on Dragon Quest's Erdrick received more credibility upon the datamine leak of code that mentions Jack, Brave and Packu. Here, Jack is referred to be Joker and Packu is a nod to Pakkun Flower, Japanese name for pre-order DLC character Piranha Plant from Super Mario.

Now all that left is "Brave", which translates to Yuusha in Japanese, which also stands for hero and Erdrick belongs to the hero class of Dragon Quest. Moreover, the character has a legacy of appearing throughout the series, notably the first three games.

Therefore, he is a worthy representative of the franchise on the crossover arena of Ultimate and the codename "Brave" fits his description very well. Reportedly, Anlucia from Dragon Quest X is to serve as an alternate skin for.

RELATED: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Leaked Before Launch

The source also claimed of a game from Square Enix classic series to arrive on Switch that turned out to be Dragon Quest XI. The hint of Ryu from Ninja Gaiden to make it to SSBU can also be a re-release of the game in 2019 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the franchise.

The arrival of Doomguy may be revealed at E3 2019 to promote the upcoming release of Doom Eternal, also coming to Nintendo Switch. Steve from Minecraft was meant to debut on the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate but shelved as a DLC to promote Minecraft: Dungeons in 2019.

For Honor X Assassin's Creed Collaboration Event

The three-week long crossover event between For Honor and Assassin's Creed is starting today and will end on January 10.

Two of the biggest titles of developer/publisher Ubisoft will collide as nothing is true, everything is permitted. If you understood that reference then you know we are talking about a certain stealth action-adventure franchise and they are in a quest For Honor.

If that sounds like a bad pun as well, then we will cut to chase where the medieval action fighting game calls in for a three-week long event called "For the Creed", which will bring in Assassin's Creed-themed content for the fierce warriors of the history.

There will be a 4v4 Dominion mode titled Assassini e Templari, which involves capturing zones to decoy commanders Ezio Auditore and Cesare Borgia out of a fight. Each team will receive 300 points to defeat them and the first one to collect 1000 points wins.

The limited time event for the melee action title will run from December 20 to January 10 over all available platforms. Plus, there will be cosmetic items and weapons like the wrist-blades or the axe from Assassin's Creed III to enjoy the spirit of this event.

To create a unique new gaming experience, Abstergo has attempted to generate a themed atmosphere with music and special environmental effects through the Animus and even director Warren Vidic would be there to narrate in certain game modes.

When the fighters will perform any drop attack it will come with a Leap of Faith animation and the in-game menus will be displayed through the Animus. There come a few weekly arcade quests and community orders for players to take part in as well.

In past, Ubisoft has teased the connection between their expanded universes and loves to do that. Earlier this year, Sam Fisher of Splinter Cell visited Ghost Recon: Wildlands and then Easter egg of that game were found in Assassin's Creed Odyssey as a pair of goggles.

In January, players of Assassin's Creed Origins will wield weaponry from the action fighting game in a crossover DLC and maybe that is why, For Honor is packing this event. Also, emotes, outfits or settings from Assassin's Creed may just pop in for the fighters.

The title originally started their journey with three unique class of fighters; Knight, Samurai and Vikings. Fans of AC series believe the next game of the franchise will be set in Feudal Japan and even though it is not coming anytime soon, the event may be setting the stage for that in advance.

For Honor year 3 content will come on January 31, 2019 and the game is already available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Although players have accused the game being a micro-transaction ridden system, Ubisoft somewhat redeemed that with regular updates.
