The hype surrounding Star Wars Battlefront is pretty out of this world (excuse the pun) as it is, but just a little more can’t hurt, right? If the extremely successful beta that ended roughly one week ago wasn’t enough to get you all excited, perhaps that will change once you learn that you can play as Han Solo, Leia, and Emperor Palpatine in the final version of the game. Needless to say, we’re starting to see a mighty fine roster of playable characters considering that Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader have previously been confirmed as well. According to a new post on the PlayStation blog, all three characters have something unique to bring to the table and would make a nice addition to pretty much any team composition.

For instance, princess Leia is all about leadership and will fall under the support category in Star Wars Battlefront due to her ability to buff allies. In addition, Leia can also pack a pretty mean punch with her powerful Trooper Bane blaster shot that can make short work of most enemies in no time. Then, we have good old Han Solo who will need to make due without Chewy for the time being and play as a lone wolf type of character. In Star Wars Battlefront Han Solo is dead set on bringing the pain to the enemy team, with most of his abilities revolving around direct damage. As for Emperor Palpatine, the dark side is still strong in this one and continues to gift him with powerful abilities like Force Lighting, Chain Lightning, and Force Dash.

Star Wars Battlefront is scheduled to launch on November 20 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. If you’re looking to pre-order a copy of the game in the coming days you may wanna take a look on CDKeys, as the retailer is offering the highly anticipated title for just $44.

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

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
