2K is switching things up after the disaster that was WWE 2K20 and is serving up an arcade style beating care of their latest offering, WWE 2K Battlegrounds, which is scheduled to launch on September 18 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC (Steam), and Stadia.

You can view the wacky and over the top announce trailer below:

With more than over 70 wrestlers to choose from, players can take part in various game modes such as exhibition, online, king of the battleground, and a brand new campaign mode built exclusively for the game where you fight it out to earn a shot at a WWE contract.

Here is the overview of the game (Via Gematsu):

Eight unique Battlegrounds environments play a major role in the action, many of them featuring interactive elements adding to the mayhem alongside a variety of outrageous melee weapons players can use to pummel opponents. Soar from military helicopters, smash opponents with cars in an auto shop and toss them into the jaws of a hungry alligator in the swamp. Bombastic play-by-play is provided by WWE commentators Mauro Ranallo and Jerry “The King” Lawler to complete the mood.

Players can also customize their own arenas to give each brawl a personal touch and use the Superstar Creator to build their own, unique WWE Superstar with different body types and sizes, facial features, clothing, hair and fighting styles.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is designed to be easy to pick up and play, but challenging to master, with more advanced techniques to be learned and skills to be unlocked so players of all skill levels can enjoy the action. A roster of today’s biggest WWE Superstars, including Roman Reigns, Drew McIntyre, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Asuka, Daniel Bryan, Kofi Kingston, Randy Orton—combined with Legends—including Andre the Giant, Undertaker, Mankind®, Shawn Michaels, Yokozuna, Sgt. Slaughter, and many more, offers fan favorites for all generations of the WWE Universe to enjoy, with more unlockable Superstars to come via free updates in the future. Each Superstar utilizes one of five class styles, and each class style has its own combat moves, strengths and weaknesses. Choose from the Powerhouse, Technician, High-Flyer, Brawler and All-Rounder to find the style that works best for you. Arcade-style powerups, such as Flaming Fist, Ice Breath and Earthquake, are accompanied by colorful visual effects, offering extra excitement and an additional dimension of strategy that can quickly change the direction of a match.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is scheduled to release on September 18 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC (Steam), and Stadia. In the mean time, check out these screenshots of the game!

If you’ve been waiting for Mafia: Definitive Edition to drop next month, you’re going to have to wait a bit longer as 2K games and Hangar 13 have delayed the game to a new release date of September 25.

The official statement reads that “finalizing everything in time for that launch date has become increasingly challenging due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, and the last thing we want to do is compromise the quality of the experience.”, which you can view below:

Alongside this announcement was a gameplay reveal scheduled for July 22, as you can see in the trailer below:

The recent Mafia 2 and 3 remasters were plagued with technical issues and if this is the same case, then it’s good to see that 2K have listened to the fans and are approaching the release with utmost care.

Mafia: Definitive Edition will release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.

2K Games have announced the final cover athlete for NBA 2K21 and it is none other than the Black Mamba himself, Kobe Bryant.

NBA legend Kobe Bryant’s lifetime achievement of basketball excellence is celebrated in the Mamba Forever Edition, and you can check out the chilling tribute video below:

For NBA 2K21, Legend Edition is replaced by the Mamba Forever Edition, celebrating Kobe Bryant’s lifelong pursuit of victory and legacy in the sport of basketball. For many fans, Kobe’s achievements on the court and love for the game had tremendous impact around the world and his list of awards and accolades is intensive: five-time NBA champion, 18-time NBA All-Star, two-time NBA Finals Most Valuable Player, 2008 NBA MVP, 11-time All-NBA First Team, 9-time NBA All-Defensive First Team, two-time NBA Scoring Champion, 2008 and 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist, the all-time leading scorer for the Los Angeles Lakers and much more.

Kobe was the cover athlete for NBA 2K10, the Legend Edition of NBA 2K17 and is immortalized in the NBA 2K21 Mamba Forever Edition with unique custom covers for both current generation and next-generation versions of the game that honor the span of his career, from his days wearing No. 8 and scoring 81 points to scoring 60 points wearing No. 24 the night of his final NBA game.

NBA 2K21 will be available worldwide on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC and Google Stadia on September 4, 2020. NBA 2K21 will also be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X as a launch title this holiday.

2K games have unveiled the full roster of cover athletes for NBA 2K21 and with it, various details like pre-order and special edition specs.

For the current generation platforms, NBA 2K21 will be available on September 4, 2020 and will be available for pre-order from local retailers soon. Damian Lillard will take the spotlight for the standard edition while Kobe Bryant and his #8 jersey graces the cover for the special Mamba Forever edition.

The standard edition will set you back for PHP3,190 while the Mamba Forever edition will retail for PHP5,390.

NBA 2K21 will also be available for the next generation consoles, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, as a launch title this holiday. Zion Williamson will take flight on the standard version and Kobe Bryant, donning his #24 jersey, takes it home for the Mamba Forever edition.

The standard edition will cost PHP3,690 and the Mamba Forever Edition will go for PHP5,390. Notice that the next gen prices are around $10, or PHP500, higher. Could this be a sign of pricing for next gen titles?

Check out the reveal trailer below:

“Being on the cover of NBA 2K has been a dream since I was a kid and to be the first NBA 2K21 cover athlete for the next-generation of gaming is really special,” said Zion Williamson. “Since the day I joined Team 2K, I’ve wanted to make an impact on basketball culture both on and off the court, and being the cover athlete for NBA 2K21 on next-gen consoles lets me do that. I can’t wait to be part of this global phenomenon and hoop with all the ballers out there on NBA 2K21.”

“For the cover of the next-generation version of NBA 2K21, we wanted to find someone who could represent the next-generation of NBA superstar,” stated Alfie Brody, VP of Marketing at NBA 2K. “Zion is one of the few young players who has met the hype and can be considered a standard bearer for the next generation. We’re thrilled that he is representing the 2K21.” 

NBA 2K and Zion’s partnership also extends off the court. 2K Foundations, 2K’s program to support underserved communities by revitalizing basketball courts and community centers across the nation, will work directly with Zion to renovate a site in New Orleans for the local community.

The official narrative trailer for the first game in the trilogy, Mafia Definitive Edition, has been revealed and boy does it look amazing.

Check it out below:

The trailer, entitled New Beginnings, introduces Thomas Angelo and how the remade game will tell of his story.

You can choose to purchase Mafia: Definitive edition individually for $40 or around PHP2,000 when it comes out or purchase the whole trilogy as a package for $60 or around PHP3,000.

After a surprising amount of Mafia II and Mafia III leaks just hours after the teaser, 2K and Hanger13 have officially unveiled Mafia Trilogy, which contains a remake of the first Mafia game and remasters for both Mafia II and Mafia III. Best thing about it? Both remasters are now available via digital download.

You can view both trailers below:

Mafia II: Definitive Edition is remastered from the original game back from 2010 and will include all of the post release DLC, setting you back for $30 or around PHP1,500.

Mafia III: Definitive Edition, on the other hand, is quite the letdown as it will not include any upgrades other than the base game along with all the DLC. It will cost you $30, or around PHP1,500 as well.

Both are available now via digital download but if you want to wait for a Physical version to come in, that’s going to take quite a while. August 28, to be exact, the same date that the remade Mafia: Definitive edition hits.

You can choose to purchase Mafia: Definitive edition individually for $40 or around PHP2,000 when it comes out or purchase the whole trilogy as a package for $60 or around PHP3,000.

Pre-orders for Mafia: Definitive Edition or the Mafia Trilogy before August 28 will be given “The Chicago Outfit” bonus content which includes the following:

Mafia: Definitive Edition is scheduled to release on August 28 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
