There is less than a month until the most expected movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits the theaters. Fans all around the world already bought tickets ready to see the movie but still hoping  to see Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) in one way or another before the actual release of the movie on December 18. The director in charge with the movie, J. J. Abrams confirmed last month that he kept the secret of Jedi master’s presence on purpose. He did not say why, but this thing did not stop the fans to start different rumors and speculations about the next Star Wars movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. PC Gamer had the chance to talk with Mark Hamill. He actually revealed that there is a big secret that won’t come up until the actual release of the movie.

“It’s crazy though, this NDA stuff, people don’t know. Non Disclosure Agreements, where you’re not allowed to talk about anything. I have something coming out where there’s an amount of money that if it leaks because of me, I don’t get that payment. If I keep it a secret until the day it comes out, I get that payment.”

Well Mark, if it is about money, than try not to say any kind of spoilers. However, Luke Skywalker hasn’t been seen in any footage,photos or poster and Mark Hamill’s name is on the poster that appeared last month. He also made his presence known along with the cast at Comic Con and Star Wars Celebration. He hasn’t been spotted in any footage until now, so there is no doubt he is part of the cast. He did reveal though that he is not allowed to tell people that he is in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Here it is what he had to say about all of this.

“I’m good about keeping secrets. I’m proud of the fact that I knew a year and a half before anybody else that he was actually dad-Vader. I didn’t even tell Harrison (Ford), or my wife, because I thought it would be terrible if she said ‘you know what’ to a fan and it got out, because [Empire Strikes Back director] Irvin Kershner said ‘I know something, I’m going to tell you. George (Lucas) knows, I know and now I’m gonna tell you, and if it leaks, we’ll know it’s you’, because the line originally was ‘you don’t know the truth, Obi Wan killed your father’ and he said ‘we’re going to take that line out and put in ‘I am your father.’ I thought, well first of all if Sir Alec Guinness is the real villain, that’s a pretty good twist in and of itself, but this is even better. I couldn’t believe it. I was so excited. It was a mind-boggling plot twist. Now it’s happening all over again. I’m not even authorized to tell you that I’m in Episode 7. It’s all secret.”

We can only presume that the secret Mark Hamill is trying to keep so hard is bigger than the reveal of Darth Vader as Luke’s father. But we are very good at rumors, right? One rumor says that Luke put himself into exile after Star Wars: Episode VI- Return of the Jedi because he managed to accomplish something big along The Force. Another rumor says that the new villain Kylo Ren was looking to find Luke’s original blue lightsaber, the one which got lost after Darth Vader cut off his hand in Star Wars: Episode V- The Empire Strikes Back . 

What do you think about these rumors? Do you think they may be associated with Mark Hamill’s secret? Or it may be something even bigger? Let us know what you really think. Until then, watch this interview with Mark Hamill about Star Wars.

Metallica takes center stage on the battle arena of the Fortnite Festival, showcasing their musical prowess in an epic PVP showdown

Metallica will be headlining the Battle Stage at the Fortnite Festival, and fans can look forward to an epic performance later today, on the 13th of June. The entire lineup of the legendary heavy metal band has been transformed into digital avatars for the ever-growing gaming platform. Fans can now enjoy their greatest hits and even engage in a thrilling musical player-versus-player game mode.

The collaboration between Metallica and Fortnite marks the start of Fortnite Festival Season 4, featuring an exciting lineup of six Metallica songs, such as “Enter Sandman,”  “Fuel,”  and “Ride the Lightning.”. Additional songs will be introduced as the season progresses. By choosing Epic’s premium Festival Pass, you’ll have the opportunity to unlock all four Metallica band members as playable skins. How about a showdown between Lars Ulrich and Goku?

The aspect that captures our attention is the 16-player musical battle royale. The Battle Stage offers a challenging experience that pushes players to their limits, requiring both physical stamina and a captivating stage presence. Players will find themselves immersed in the intense energy of the four tracks playing simultaneously. Perform with skill, and you can unleash powerful bursts of musical energy, causing less talented individuals to falter and be defeated, with the ultimate victor being crowned the Master of Puppets (most likely).

In addition to that, Metallica will be making an appearance at the Rocket Racing tent, complete with a specially designed track, car, and LEGO replicas of the band members. Is there anything more intense than that?

Do you enjoy Metallica’s music? Could anyone have predicted that the band would rise to prominence in a video game primarily aimed at a younger audience who may not be familiar with their music? And now, let’s turn our attention to the comments section below.

Star Wars Outlaws PS5 Demo Falls Short of Delivering the Full Experience, According to Critic

Star Wars Outlaws, although it appeared visually stunning during Ubisoft’s livestream earlier this week, has received some criticism for feeling somewhat outdated. A preview unfavorably compared the release to Uncharted: Golden Abyss, the PS Vita exclusive spin-off that was launched in 2011. However, according to the creative director, the sampler is merely a small taste of what the full experience has to offer.

“When entering a show of this nature, where you’re finalizing a game’s production, you’re faced with numerous decisions. Our producer limited us to just one demo for all the shows we would attend throughout the year, such as Gamescom and Comic-Con,” Julian Gerighty explained in an interview with VGC.

He explained that the events are designed to cater to both consumers and journalists. To ensure an engaging experience, they opted for a 20-minute format that offers a diverse range of content and showcases different game systems. However, they intentionally avoided showcasing the open-world experience at this particular event, as they plan to unveil it during the studio tour and preview event. This will be a brief overview, more of an appetizer than a full meal when it comes to the game.

According to Gerighty, the developer Massive Entertainment has crafted a highly engaging game, with only a portion of its greatness showcased here.

Admittedly, the comments do make sense. It’s common knowledge that creating demos requires a significant amount of the team’s focus. If a game plans to showcase itself at consumer conventions, it can’t just offer a short gameplay experience of two or three hours. That simply won’t suffice when attendees are patiently waiting in line. This seems to be just a subpar demo, which is unfortunate. However, it may not be something to worry too much about in the end.

Ubisoft has given us our first look at The Sky Breaker, the first DLC story pack for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. In it, a strange shadow will appear in the sky and threaten the Na’vi clans, who just can’t seem to get a break. It comes out next month on PS5, on July 16th.

A new part of the Upper Plains called “The Heart of the Plains” can be reached by taking the Sky Breaker. Some well-known biomes have changed into new types, and there are also many new ones. Of course, the RDA has also sent out new types of enemies, so you need to be careful. The good news is that not everything is bad. During the Na’vi Festival of Games, players can look forward to timed tasks that are a little less scary. Secrets of the Spires, another story pack, is still planned to be added to the game at some point.
