Mortal Kombat X still doesn’t have an official launch trailer but that’s all going to change very soon. NetherRealm Studios are working on a trailer for the game as we speak and they’ve enlisted someone very special to help them out with the creation process. If you’re a so-called 90’s kid and can claim that you listen to good music, then I’m sure you already know about a little band called System of a Down. Although the boys haven’t released any new songs in quite a few years, they’re keeping themselves busy with various projects. Shavo for example, is apparently helping NetherRealm Studios with creating the official launch trailer for Mortal Kombat X.

I’m not entirely certain in regards to all the ways in which Shavo is helping out the developers, but from the sneak peak that was released just hours ago it seems that he is in fact the director of the trailer. As for why Shavo of all people is working on a trailer for Mortal Kombat X, it seems to have something to do with one of the band’s most popular songs, Chop Suey. The song in question is a very awesome one indeed and the folks over at NetherRealm have definitely made a right choice when picking it to be featured on the Mortal Kombat X trailer. The launch trailer will premier worldwide on Monday, April 6th, with a tv spot “featuring Chop Suey by System of a Down” apparently scheduled for a March 27th release. So, tomorrow.

As a side note, the sneak peak released earlier shows what seems to be Onaga the Dragon King at one point, so there’s that. We already know about most of the playable characters in Mortal Kombat X, but Onaga was not among them, until now I guess. Take this with a grain of salt because we’re not sure that’s him, but it certainly looks like him if you ask me.

Although still unconfirmed, Onaga seems to be joining the Mortal Kombat X roster.

Although George has many hobbies, he likes nothing more than to play around with cameras and other photography equipment.

For individuals who may not recall, the Year 2000 Problem, commonly referred to as the Y2K scare, was a thrilling period of chaos experienced in the late 90s. There was widespread concern about a potential catastrophic computing disaster due to discrepancies in dating systems. Today, we had the opportunity to experience some unexpected events as EA and Square Enix faced technical difficulties due to the leap year, causing their games to be temporarily unplayable.

Players of EA’s Sports WRC encountered a problem on the 29th where they couldn’t start the game because of a timezone glitch. The issue was promptly fixed, but users had to adjust their system settings for the next day to play. Meanwhile, Square Enix is facing challenges, with the problem only impacting Nintendo players and not PlayStation users. The Theatrythm Final Bar Line failing to start up ruined the release of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

In Helldivers 2, players will find themselves in need of additional firepower to spread freedom across the galaxy. Arrowhead Game Studios announced that armored mechs will be included in the game for free shortly after its release. Leaked gameplay footage on social media suggests that heavy armor support is on its way.

IGN showcased a few clips, with the first one being shared by Redditor fozzye18, featuring a Helldiver piloting a mech equipped with what appears to be twin-linked autocannons. It’s important to note that in another clip shared by Redditor Klyka, we witness a mech equipped with a gatling gun and rockets, hinting at the possibility of various strategy versions for these machines.

A clip from TikTok ponders the possibility of a different outcome at the famous Malevelon Creek, where the Helldivers community faced a significant defeat against the Socialist Automatons.

Mechs… enjoy

Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown will mandate an internet connection on the PS5

To fully experience Nacon’s upcoming social racer Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown, an Internet connection is required. The new trailer reveals the off-road areas of Hong Kong Island, highlighting the diverse experiences offered in the upcoming game. It also emphasizes the MMO features that have been integral to the franchise.

“While driving, there are always other players surrounding you, which brings the city to life,” a press release discloses. “In Test Drive Unlimited, players can immerse themselves in the world of cars through interactions at dealerships and workshops, discussing future purchases, dream cars, and customization options.”

Undoubtedly, there is a trade-off with the need for a constant online connection to support various social features such as leaderboards, races, inventories, moderation, live events, anti-cheat measures, and the overall game experience. You need an Internet connection to play Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown.

As expected for an online-focused game, players will need to rely on Nacon’s servers and PSN.

Nevertheless, it appears that the racing game is making significant progress. In a recent development update, the team highlighted their ongoing efforts to enhance the particle effects for off-road gameplay. They are currently facing challenges in recreating the expansive dust clouds seen in their WRC games within a shared-world sandbox environment. “We are currently in the process of integrating and optimizing these effects,” it concedes. “It is a crucial aspect of off-road immersion, yet it also demands a lot of resources and performance.”

It appears that the game is nearing its final stages. The team is taking their time to guarantee that Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown provides a seamless, stable, and enjoyable experience for players. It has been brought to our attention that we need to ensure the game meets your expectations before release. We are currently focused on improving various aspects, such as enhancing server stability and optimizing the game’s performance.
