League of Legends developer Riot Games has announced a new game mode, dubbed Nexus Blitz. It’s the first of a new, community-driven method of testing possible additional game modes called Experimental Modes.
In a board post written by gameplay producer Michael “SpaceNorth” Chu, Riot detailed how these Experimental Modes differ from other timed content like the Ultra Rapid Fire mode that comes and goes: “With experimental modes, we’re looking for something that could last a while—maybe even as a permanent addition to League.”
Despite reports suggesting Kingdom Hearts 3 will have a campaign of around 40-50 hours, and additional content bolstering that number to an estimated 80 hours, Square Enix has not yet actually settled on the final length of the anticipated sequel.
A preview report from Geek.com of Kingdom Hearts 3 published earlier this month suggested those play time estimations had been confirmed. That would make for one of the longest main campaigns in the Kingdom Hearts franchise, and the news of this lengthy play time was reported by a number of outlets as confirmation of KH3’s official length earlier this week.
The Destiny 2: Forsaken – Legendary Collection will be arriving day-and-date with the launch of the latest Destiny 2 expansion, Forsaken, on September 4, and will include the base game, Curse of Osiris, Warmind, and of course, Forsaken.
Announced by Bungie alongside a new trailer, this collection will retail for $59.99 USD and will include everything needed to enjoy this latest adventure, as Forsaken requires players to own all previous expansions to play.
While this collection includes all previous content, it does not include the Destiny 2 Annual Pass which will grant access to three smaller expansions – Black Armory (Winter 2018), Joker’s Wild (Spring 2019), and Penumbra (Summer 2019).
HBO is developing a TV adaptation of The Time Traveler’s Wife from Sherlock co-creator Steven Moffat.
The network has given a straight to series order for the project, based on the novel of the same name by Audrey Niffenegger. A premiere date for the series has not been set yet.
The story centers on Henry, a man who time travels unpredictably because of a genetic disorder, and his complicated marriage with Clare.
Moffat will write and executive produce the series alongside Sue Vertue and Brian Minchin. New Line Cinema also developed a 2009 film adaptation of the book which stars Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Steven Moffat, Hartswood and WBTV on The Time Traveler’s Wife,” HBO president of programming Casey Bloys said. “Steven’s passion is evident in every project he’s written and we are certain that his love and respect for this mesmerizing and textured novel will make it a quintessential HBO series.”
