Harley Quinn: New Adult Animated Series In Production

Harley Quinn is set to get another spin-off – this time she’ll be starring in an adult-oriented DC animated series.

According to Deadline, the series will simply be called ‘Harley Quinn’, and DC’s streaming service has ordered 26 half-hour episodes. It will be aimed at an adult audience.

Margot Robbie – who played the character in Suicide Squad and was the focus of much of that movie’s praise – will apparently be approached to voice the character.

Per Deadline, the show will see Harley Quinn after she breaks things off with The Joker and attempts to become Gotham’s queen of crime. It will “also will feature Poison Ivy and a whole cast of heroes and villains, old and new, from the DC Universe”.

Marvel’s Runaways: “Rewind/Destiny” Review

This is a review for Marvel’s Runaways episodes “Rewind” and “Destiny – the second and third episodes that, along with the pilot, were all released Tuesday, November 21st on Hulu. For a review of the first episode, which we saw when it screened at NYCC, you can go here.

Warning: Full spoilers for the episodes below.

Starting next week, with Episode 4 (“Fifteen”), Marvel’s Runways episodes will settle into a once-a-week basis so this should be the only double-up review of the bunch. It’s not an ideal way to review episodes, especially since the second episode, “Rewind,” really acts as a solid follow-up to the pilot episode, being that it takes place on the same day shown in the premiere and gives us the story from the parents’ perspective, but we’ll make do.

Assassin’s Creed Origins, South Park, More Black Friday Deals In Ubisoft PC Game Sale

Not content to just let retailers provide discounts on its own products, Ubisoft has launched its own Black Friday sale ahead of the big shopping day. In addition to dropping the price of many of the publisher’s newest PC games, you’ll also find deals on its older games and a variety of merchandise themed around those games, ranging from South Park figurines to Assassin’s Creed clothing.

On the game side, even Ubisoft’s most recent releases are on sale for PC. South Park: The Fractured But Whole and Assassin’s Creed Origins are $40 each, both of which launched just last month. A variety of versions of Rainbow Six Siege are discounted, the cheapest of which gets you the base game for $20. For Honor drops to $24, while Ghost Recon: Wildlands drops to $30. Other deals of note include Star Trek: Bridge Crew for $30 and Watch Dogs 2 for $16.

As for merchandise, you can pick up a South Park: Fractured But Whole figurine of Mysterion for $40 (down from $50) or a Coon tricycle for $60 (from $80). A Wildlands backpack can be had for $30 (from $60), Rainbow Six Siege figurines are $15 each (from $20), and an Assassin’s Creed canvas backpack is $48 (from $60).

These prices are available from now until November 26; you can see everything on sale here. At least in the case of the games, you may want to do some comparison shopping–there haven’t been a ton of deals on PC games announced so far, although GOG and the Humble Store have both launched their respective Black Friday sales. Steam is expected to do the same on November 22. You can check out all of our Black Friday coverage through the links below.

Watch Destiny 2: Curse Of Osiris DLC Livestream Here Today

Today, Bungie is set to host the second of three livestreams dedicated to Destiny 2‘s upcoming Curse of Osiris DLC expansion pack. Whereas the first focused on the new location, story, and characters, this second stream will deal with new activities that you’ll be able to take part in on Mercury. The stream is scheduled to take place at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET / 7 PM GMT (6 AM AET on Wednesday, November 22), and you can watch it through the stream below.

As with the first one, we don’t know many specifics about what will be shown. Bungie says it’ll offer a look at activities on Mercury, including those in the Infinite Forest, which is a key area we got a look at during the initial reveal and the first livestream. The key tease involves the reveal of a new Public Event, which is the “biggest [Bungie has] ever delivered in Destiny.” While we’d assume it involves the Vex, given that they are central to Curse of Osiris’s story, we do know that the Cabal are also present on Mercury. We’ll report back with all the details once they’re announced.

Assuming this follows the schedule from last week, you can expect today’s stream to last about an hour. The first one showed off the revamped Lighthouse and other areas on Mercury, new gear for each class, the return of the Heroic Strikes playlist, and a post-campaign system through which you can acquire new weapons. Most notably, though, we learned about Raid Lairs, which are smaller but completely redesigned versions of the Leviathan Raid, complete with new encounters and a different final boss.

The final Curse of Osiris stream is scheduled for November 29 and will further showcase the expansion’s new gear. It then launches for PS4, Xbox One, and PC a week later, on December 5. It will be sold on its own and as part of the $35 Expansion Pass. Its release will coincide with that of an update adding PS4 Pro and Xbox One X enhancements to Destiny 2.
