Our Take
There's no word so far about the beta that Polyphony's Kazunori Yamauchi announced when the game was first unveiled last fall, but we're interested to get our hands on it.

Marvel is getting quite savvy about tying its movies and television shows to video games featuring its characters. Gazillion’s Marvel Heroes has been there for the recent movie launches, and today the game is getting a dose of Captain America: Civil War additions.

Cap and Iron Man are getting new costumes, Crossbones is launching an attack on the country of Madripoor, and there are two themed mystery boxes that could nab you Captain America and Iron Man team-up heroes. Later this month, eight additional characters are getting movie costumes. They are:

  • Ant-Man
  • Black Panther
  • Black Widow
  • Hawkeye
  • Scarlet Witch
  • Spider-Man
  • War Machine
  • Winter Soldier

Agent 13 and Falcon (with Redwing drone) are joining the team-up hero roster. There’s also a new gameplay scenario that asks you to pick a side and fight the opposing heroes. 

Marvel Heroes is available free-to-play via Gazillion's site or on Steam.

Rumor: Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Comes With Campaign And Multiplayer

Another day means another Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare leak. This time, we’re getting a look at what appears to be a Canadian poster detailing more of how you’ll be able to get the Modern Warfare remaster.

According to an advertising poster, the game will be out on November 4, 2016 (Canadians use the day/month/year format). The standard version of the game will be $ 79.99 CDN ($ 59.99 USD). 

If you want to get it with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, you’ll need to pony up for the legacy edition. That’s priced at $ 109.99 CDN, which will probably put it at $ 79.99 USD.

The remaster of Infinity Ward’s 2007 series entry will come with a campaign and 10 multiplayer maps. There’s no word yet if it will be sold separately at launch or later on.

We’ve reached out to Activision (again) for comment. We’ll update should we receive a response.

Our Take
Given that Canada uses the ESRB, the day/month date format, and the pricing fits that country, this looks fairly compelling. We suggest exercising some caution though, because if this is real (which we cannot verify), it likely does not tell the whole story. With this many leaks though, we suspect Activision will show its hand soon.

Romance Of The Three Kingdoms XIII Comes West After Eight Years

The Romance of the Three Kingdoms series is getting a new entry after nearly a decade since its last Western release. Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII will be coming to North America this summer as a celebration of the series' 30th anniversary.

The game will be a return to the tactical strategy, political drama and historical settings that the series is known for. Players can once again assume the role of one of China's greatest warlords from the second century, or create their own character to climb toward leadership as the Han Dynasty collapses. Watch the announcement trailer and take a look at the first screenshots below.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII will offer a wide variety of options for conflict resolution between the warring factions of ancient China. Armies can be built from a large selection of foot soldiers, cavalry, artillery, and naval units. On the other hand, the game now has a particular consideration for diplomacy and personal relationships, which is designed to "give the player an extra incentive to build a stable and loyal network of friends and allies."

The game's Campaign mode will be like a classic strategy title, with players choosing a starting year and customizing the board. The Hero mode will include an in-depth tutorial for the game's extensive systems while closely following and highlighting the historical events that inspired it.

Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII will launch on PlayStation 4 and PC on July 5.
