Persia talks about today’s latest gaming news. CD Projekt Red is bringing in Yigsoft, the community modding team behind WolvenKit, to help Cyberpunk 2077 and we got the first look at the cast of Welcome to Raccoon City courtesy of images from IGN. We also get to check out the new Dead Space tomorrow for the first time and the Halo: Master Chief Collection’s next Beta is adding some quality of life improvements for PC players.
In this video, Persia talks about today’s latest gaming news. CD Projekt Red is bringing members of Cyberpunk 2077’s modding community onboard to work on backend Cyberpunk 2077 projects and modding support. The news spread on Twitter after a screenshot of the announcement from the team’s discord was shared online but we’ve yet to hear any official word from CD Projekt Red at this time.
The three images reveal the new actors for the live-action movie: Kaya Scodelario as Claire Redfield, Avan Jogia as Leon Kennedy, Tom Hopper as Albert Wesker, Nathan Dales as Brad Vickers, Hannah John-Kamen as Jill Valentine, and Robbie Amell as Chris Redfield. The images also revealed Marina Mazepa who will be playing Lisa Trevor. Welcome to Raccoon City comes out in theaters on November 24.
EA will reveal more details on Motive Studio's new Dead Space remake as part of a Livestream event tomorrow on Motive Studio’s Twitch channel. The wording here suggests the presentation won't be the type of showcase that could be expected closer to a game's release, which makes sense given the Dead Space remake isn't expected to release until the end of 2022 at the soonest. The stream begins at 10AM PT and you can view it live on youtube.com/gamespot.
Halo: MCC’s File Share, Game Browser, and more are heading to the next Beta for Season 8 and will improve the quality of life for PC Players. File sharing on PC will arrive with everything players should expect and "trust levels," which can be set for other players.
The custom games browser will cover not only Halo: Reach, but also Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 3. This version of the browser will also come with numerous quality of life improvements, including better search functions, filters, and changes to sub-menus.
When Season 8 for Halo: The Master Chief Collection launches this week, players will also get to play a brand new map for Halo 3. The map, titled Icebox, is a remake of the Halo 2 map Turf.
