The Predator Lands In Ghost Recon: Wildlands



In one of the most unexpected announcements of the week, the Predator will be arriving in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands tomorrow as part in the form of a free DLC event titled “The Hunt”, which will last until early January. The event can either be played solo or in co-op, and if you are able to take down a Predator (which Ubisoft have promised won’t be easy), you’ll be rewarded with a ton of cool shit, including the Predator’s thermal vision helmet.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands was released to positive reviews back in March,with particular praise going towards the huge open world. Meanwhile, we’ll next be seeing the vicious alien hunters on the big screen when The Predator arrives on August 3, 2018.

Hunt a Serial Killer Through Chicago In My Eyes On You



Developer Storymind Entertainment have released the first gameplay trailer for My Eyes On You, and it looks like we’re in for something completely truly unique, in terms of both visuals and narrative.

My Eyes On You takes place in a near future version of Chicago, with FBI agent Jordan Adalien hunting an elusive serial killer known only as the Man in the Red Mask. The decisions you make will also dictate whether the game’s plot stays closer to reality or heads in a supernatural direction, so you’d better be careful what you wish for. Whilst searching for clues will be one of your main areas of focus, combat will also play an important role, too.

The trailer for My Eyes On You certainly gives off a strong Blade Runner 2049 vibe, so if that’s your thing, you’re probably in for a great time. It will be available on PC and consoles, although a release date has not yet been confirmed.

Netflix Renews The Punisher Solo Series for Season Two!



I’m going to let you guys into a bit of my life here and let you know that I am basically in a constant state of kicking myself for not having found the time to watch a single episode of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series.

I love the f*cking Punisher and I think Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle is quite possibly the best version (love ya, Tom Jane) of the character we have ever seen on screen.

Big or small.

It’s with this in mind that we wanted to share the awesome news the Netflix has officially given “The Punisher” the greenlight for season 2!

Yes, Frank Castle will be back to shoot more people in the back of the face sooner than later. The announcement was made recently on Facebook and you can check out the post below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you thought of the first season of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series in the comments below or on social media!

“The Punisher” is executive produced by showrunner Steve Lightfoot, Jim Chory, and Jeph Loeb. The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

The cast features Jon Bernthal, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Deborah Ann Woll, Ben Barnes, Amber Rose Revah, Michael Nathanson, Jaime Ray Newman, Jason R Moore, and Paul Schulze.

After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.
