Halo 5 Guardians Coming on October 27

halo5

It’s official. Halo 5 will arrive on Xbox One on October 27, 2015.

The launch date was revealed last night during a commercial break of the season finale of The Walking Dead. Two commercials showed competing viewpoints of the Master Chief and the mysterious Agent Locke, with the final commercial flashing the 10.27.15 release date.

While that’s great we have a release date now, it is still several months away. The Halo Master Chief Collection gets more and more stale by the day. Let’s just hope 343 doesn’t screw up the Halo 5 launch the way it did the Master Chief Collection with¬†unplayable multiplayer matchmaking.

You can pre-order Halo 5 on Amazon.com.

Titanfall DLC is Now Free

On the one year anniversary of Titanfall, all of the game’s DLC became free to download for Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC users. Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that it will remain free going forward.

Also, a Titanfall Sequel was confirmed earlier for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, alongside a promising mention from Respawn CEO that the idea of not charging for DLC would be good for future games because paid DLC fragments the community.

Free DLC from day one? Now that’s something I can get on board with.

‘The Legend of Zelda’ is Coming to Netflix as Live-Action Series

The Legend of Zelda NES

Wait, what?

According to the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo and Netflix are teaming up to make a live action Zelda series. Reports describe the series as Game of Thrones for a family audience.

Don’t get too worked up yet though, the series doesn’t even have a writer yet. However, if Netflix polishes The Legend of Zelda as well as it has some of its original series, it could be a big hit. Game of Thrones is a big budget series for a cable network, so if Netflix is aiming to match it, I am hopeful that we could see very good things.
