The highly anticipated Warcraft movie is not exactly right around the corner just yet, but the trailer almost is. The folks who are making the film based on the popular RTS franchise have decided that the first footage should only be released in November, which means that we still have to wait a couple of extra months before we’ll get to see it. Or do we? As it happens, what appears to be the official Warcraft movie trailer has already been leaked online. I do have to warn you that the footage is far from being high quality, but if that doesn’t bother you, make sure to check out right here.

So how is this new footage different from the one that leaked back in July after Comic-Con? Well, that particular video was a scene from the movie and although it was nice to see, it didn’t have nearly as much epicness as an actual trailer. This new Warcraft movie footage, however, does have epicness written all over it and it also has a pretty sweet soundtrack. Granted, we can’t hear it clearly, but we can already tell that it fits really nicely with the action scenes. As for the footage itself, we’re looking at griffins, Stormwind, Orcs invading Azeroth via the Dark Portal, major characters on both sides of the conflict, and of course, plenty of fighting. All in all, this looks like a pretty damn good trailer for the upcoming Warcraft movie.

Warcraft is scheduled to be released on June 10th, 2016 and is expected to be just the first part of a trilogy. The plot is pretty straightforward as it is mostly based on the original Warcraft: Orcs & Humans real-time strategy game developed by Blizzard Entertainment and launched in 1994. World of Warcraft fans may be a bit disappointed to learn that some of their favorite characters like Arthas, Illidan or Thrall will not be a part of the movie because the story takes part before the events of WoW. This will be a whole series, though, so expect all those characters (and more) to play important roles in future Warcraft movies.

There hasn’t been much buzz lately about any new acquisitions in the world of video game intellectual property. According to a recent report, Sony is currently engaged in discussions with a well-funded partner to potentially acquire the renowned film studio Paramount, along with all the exciting possibilities that come with such a merger.

As reported in the New York Times (thanks, ResetEra), Sony Picture Entertainment is reportedly in discussions with Apollo Global Management, an investment firm, as per two sources familiar with the matter. In the past, Apollo had made an offer to acquire Paramount for a minimum of $26 billion, but their bid was ultimately turned down.

The terms of the joint bid are currently under discussion, and there is a chance that the two parties may decide against making a formal offer. Unnamed sources have revealed that Paramount is currently in exclusive discussions with Skydance, preventing any official offer from being made at this time. Investor opposition to the recent deal that Skydance brought seems to have been significant.

The potential impact of such an acquisition is immense. First and foremost, it would introduce adaptations of Sonic and Halo into the expanding media empire of the PlayStation platform holder. Following the announcement, Paramount’s stock experienced a significant 11% surge in after-hours trading.

What are your thoughts on the news? Is there a possibility of Sony acquiring Paramount? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

In the ongoing conflict against the Automaton invasion fleet, the Helldivers 2 players have successfully halted their advance. However, the situation has now reached a tiresome stalemate. Yet again, the machines refuse to take a break from their relentless pursuit of progress, with reports emerging of the Factory Striders being deployed in record-breaking quantities.

There have been reports of alleged machines that were supposedly encountered during Operation Swift Disassembly, which was just the beginning of a larger campaign. However, these accounts should be taken with a grain of salt, as they are unverified and seem to be more on the imaginative side. Factory Striders have gained a reputation as formidable weapons platforms that can produce more Automatons while enduring significant damage. If the machines are able to withstand such a relentless assault, it will be necessary to develop innovative strategies.

Have you come across groups of Factory Striders in Helldivers 2? Which strategies are proving to be the most effective in taking down these armored brutes? The Orbital Railcannon Strike will prove to be a valuable asset in the comments section below.
