After The World Ends With You getting the anime treatment and Cuphead joining the Netflix family, Fallout is the next property on the list to get a TV series courtesy of Amazon Studios and Kilter Films.

An announcement was made by Bethesda through a short teaser video, which you can see below:

Via an official press release from Bethesda, key executives had this to say about the upcoming project:

“Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time. Each chapter of this insanely imaginative story has cost us countless hours we could have spent with family and friends. So we’re incredibly excited to partner with Todd Howard and the rest of the brilliant lunatics at Bethesda to bring this massive, subversive, and darkly funny universe to life with Amazon Studios,” said Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, Kilter Films.

“Over the last decade, we looked at many ways to bring Fallout to the screen,” said Todd Howard, Executive Producer at Bethesda Game Studios. “But it was clear from the moment I first spoke with Jonah and Lisa a few years ago, that they and the team at Kilter were the ones to do it right. We’re enormous fans of their work and couldn’t be more excited to work with them and Amazon Studios.”

“Fallout is an iconic global franchise, with legions of fans worldwide and a rich, deeply compelling storyline that powers it. And Jonah and Lisa are the perfect storytellers to bring this series to life,” said Albert Cheng, COO and Co-Head of Television, Amazon Studios. “We’re thrilled to join with Bethesda to bring Fallout to television.”

No other details have been given, as it could be in the very early phases of production, so in the mean time, #PleaseStandBy.

After cancelling the live event due to the COVID-19 situation, an Evo online event was supposed to take its place. Sadly, that too is not happening anymore.

In a surprise announcement from the team, Evo Online is now cancelled as a response to the recent allegations made against co-founder Joey Cuellar.

Before the cancellation, companies like Capcom, Bandai Namco, NetherRealm, and Mane6, among others, have already pulled out of the event. Multiple personalities including SonicFox have also withdrawn from the event as a response to the allegations.

Evo has now appointed Tony Cannon as their new CEO.

During the announcement of the free PS Plus games for July, it was also mentioned that a free static theme will be given away for free, but only for a limited time. Well, you can start downloading the theme now!

The theme sports a bright yellow background with outlines of prominent game characters such as the Big Daddy from BioShock, Cayde from Destiny, and much more.

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?

NBA 2K21 will feature MyTEAM Cross-Progression and a Shared VC Wallet within the same console family (PS4 to PS5, Xbox One to Xbox Series X) and to sweeten the deal, purchasing the Mamba Forever Edition, whether for the current or next generation consoles, will provide you with a copy of the standard edition on the other generation at no additional cost.

In a report from Bloomberg, Sony is apparently considering bidding to acquire Leyou Technologies, who owns Digital Extremes and Splash Damage, devs for Warframe and Gears Tactics respectively.

Sony is currently working with a financial advisor to study the acquisition and how it would prove useful to the tech giant.

Sony is not the only suitor for Leyou, as there are two other bidders in the race, but Sony is ‘hoping that it can edge out other bidders with greater certainty of financing’. Charles Yuk, the controlling shareholder for Leyou, is aiming to choose a buyer by this month. Of course, until that happens, nothing is certain and other bidders could still join in on the party.

Both Sony and Leyou have declined to comment when asked by Bloomberg.

Warframe has turned itself around into one of the hottest free to play games out there and with that amount of talent potentially joining Sony, a company that can provide financial support as needed, who knows what the potential of their next title may be?
