Two Free Xbox One Games With Gold Available Now

It’s June, and that can only mean one thing: a new set of games is now free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Two of June’s games are available now for Xbox One and Xbox 360, with the next two coming in the middle of the month.

For Xbox One, Gold members can download Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, the final standalone entry in the side-scrolling sub-series. On the Xbox 360 side of the equation, subscribers can now download Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, a kart racer starring Sonic and friends, who pilot vehicles that can change from kart to boat to plane. Thanks to backwards compatibility, Xbox One owners can also play it on their current-gen systems.

One holdover from May’s Games With Gold is still available to download through June 15. It’s the open-world stealth opus Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. Don’t miss out on that one if you’ve never played it.

Two other freebies will become available in the middle of the month. On June 16, Xbox One owners will be able to grab the Smite Gold Bundle, a package that normally costs $100 and includes gods, skins, and other extra content for the free-to-play game. The Xbox 360 game going free for Gold members June 16 is Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues. It will also be backwards compatible with Xbox One.

You can see the full list of June’s free Games with Gold below. They’ll be replaced with a new lineup of freebies on July 1.

The Crow Movie Reboot: Star And Director Quit Weeks Before Start Of Production

UPDATE: Jason Momoa has now released a statement about his departure from the remake of The Crow. Posting on Instagram, he said, “I’ve waited 8 years to play this dream role. I love you @corinhardy and @sonypictures unfortunately I may have to wait 8 more. Not our team. But I swear I will. James O’Barr sorry to let you down I won’t on the next. This film needs to be set free. And to the fans. Sorry. I can’t play anything but what this film deserves and it needs love. I’m ready when it’s right.” The original story follows.

The long-awaited reboot of the classic ’90s movie The Crow has stalled once again. The film was only a few weeks away from the start of production in Budapest, with Aquaman actor Jason Momoa set to star as the iconic comic book character. However, it has now been reported that both Momoa and director Corin Hardy have left the project over creative and financial issues.

According to Deadline, Momoa and Hardy quit following disagreements between Davis Films, the company which owns the rights to the property, and Sony Pictures, which was set to distribute it. Sony came on board back in September, but Deadline states that the deal between the two companies was never finalized. With Davis Films boss Samuel Hadida reportedly unable to close the deal, Sony was preparing to leave the project, leading to the departure of Momoa and Hardy.

This is just the latest in a long line of delays and problems for the Crow reboot. The movie was first set to start shooting in 2015, but original rights holders Relativity Media went bankrupt before this could happen. Another attempt to make it followed, but that also stalled, and Davis Films acquired the rights in 2016.

Hardy and Momoa had been attached to the project for several years, and earlier this year a release date of March 2019 was officially announced, leading many to believe that the movie might finally happen. However, with the film now lacking a star, director, and distributor, it is unclear what the cinematic future of The Crow is.

The Crow first appeared on the screen in 1994, and was adapted from James O’Barr’s comic book. The film was a critical and financial hit, but it was overshadowed by the accidental death of star Brandon Lee on set. Three critically panned sequels followed–The Crow: City of Angels, The Crow: Salvation, and The Crow: Wicked Prayer.

E3 2018: All The PS4 Games Confirmed — Fallout 76, Spider-Man, Death Stranding

E3 is just around the corner, and for publishers like Sony that means big splashy presentations and surprising announcements. The annual PlayStation showcase is one of the highlights of E3, especially since the company has fine-tuned its presentation to deliver one trailer after another.

It’s hard to say just how surprising this year’s show will be, however. Sony has taken the unusual step of outlining its plans ahead of time, with a particular “deep dive” focus on four games: Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, Spider-Man, and The Last of Us Part II. That covers the first-party line-up for the foreseeable future, and time will have to tell if Sony will devote any of its press conference to third-party games.

Sony’s E3 press conference will begin on Monday, June 11 at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET. You can check out our full press conference schedule for the rest of the line-up, and look below for all of the PS4 games confirmed to be at the show so far.

  • 3 Minutes to Midnight
  • Anthem
  • Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
  • Battlefield 5
  • Beyond Good and Evil 2
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

E3 2018: All The Xbox One Games Confirmed — Fallout 76, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Battlefield 5

Microsoft is preparing for its big E3 2018 stage show to debut and hype the biggest and best games coming to Xbox One this year. The company has been setting lofty expectations, calling the show its “biggest showing ever.” To that end, it has mostly moved its actual show presence out of the Los Angeles Convention Center and into the nearby Microsoft Theater at LA Live.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer has promised “positive changes” and more support for Japanese publishers. Aside from those vague hints, though, we know very little about what the company will actually be showing this year. In fact, Microsoft has been so secretive that we don’t even know which first-party games are slated for the rest of this year. Halo? Gears of War? Forza? Any of them could be a surprise announcement.

We could also hear expansions or announcements related to the company’s own popular initiatives like Xbox Game Pass and Xbox One backwards compatibility. As for third-party support, it’s a safe bet that Battlefield 5 will be prominently featured given the apparent marketing deal for EA’s upcoming shooter.

Microsoft’s E3 2018 briefing will take place on Sunday, June 11 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. Check out the full E3 conference schedule, and check the list below for all of the Xbox One games we know are slated to make an appearance at the show.

Every Game Confirmed For E3 2018: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Spider-Man, Battlefield 5

E3 is the biggest showcase for video games every year, and E3 2018 is shaping up to be no different. While events like Gamescom might be far larger in terms of sheer attendance, E3 is still the premiere place for developers to showcase their upcoming projects. There are sure to be many games that we don’t know about, but let’s run through all of the ones that have been confirmed for the convention so far.

While E3 used to be more concentrated from an audience’s perspective, the show has effectively been spread out to last nearly a full week. Press conferences and showcases have come earlier and earlier; the first of the bunch this year will again be EA Play, Electronic Arts’ pre-E3 event. We don’t know the show’s full lineup, but the publisher has already confirmed that two of its biggest upcoming games will be there: Anthem and Battlefield V. BioWare’s Anthem is a Destiny-esque open-world action game that we’ve still yet to hear much about, so EA Play should provide us with a firmer idea of what expect. Similarly, we should learn even more about the new features Battlefield V will offer as it takes the franchise back to World War II.

Battlefield’s chief competition, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, will also make an appearance at E3. Another Activision shooter, Destiny 2, will also be there, as Bungie is set to share details on an upcoming mode due out this fall that offers a “new style of play” for first-person shooters.

Super Smash Bros. for Switch will be among Nintendo’s biggest games at the show, while Sony has said its press conference will focus primarily on four games: Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, Spider-Man, and The Last of Us Part II. There will, however, be some projects from third-party developers shown there, while Microsoft’s conference remains a mystery.

There’s sure to be a lot more on display, and there’s always a good chance of some kind of surprise. We know, for instance, that The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red will be in attendance, though we don’t know if it’ll be actually showing off a game. There was also a lot seemingly leaked by Walmart Canada earlier in May; one of those games, Rage 2, has proven to be real, so perhaps more of those games will turn out to be at E3. Read on for the full list of confirmed games so far, and check back as we continue to update in the lead-up to the show, which runs from June 12-14.
