New Power Rangers Fighting Game Trailer Confirms Mighty Morphin’ Green Is Still The Best

A new Power Rangers fighting game, titled Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, has been announced. Despite featuring characters from the mobile game, Power Rangers: Legacy Wars, Battle for the Grid is a brand-new title that’s been designed with consoles in mind.

According to a tweet from the official Battle for the Grid Twitter account, the game will “feature a completely brand new battle mechanic” in comparison to Legacy Wars, as well as “different movesets” for each fighter. Hasbro creative director Jason Bischoff tweeted that Battle for the Grid would include both a story mode and online PvP, DLC content, and both cross-play and cross-progression across systems. He added that, unlike Legacy Wars, Battle for the Grid would not be free-to-play.

An announcement trailer for Battle for the Grid teases what combat in the new game looks like. On Battle for the Grid’s official website, combat is described as being “easy to learn but hard to master” with the challenge coming from knowing “when to strike, not how.”

Battle for the Grid features heroes and villains from throughout the Power Ranger franchise’s years of TV shows, movies, and comics. The announcement trailer sees Mighty Morphin’ Green Ranger v2, who’s still the best version of Tommy Oliver, taking on both Mighty Morphin’ Red Ranger and Super Megaforce Yellow Ranger. Battle for the Grid’s website also confirms Lord Drakkon–an alternate universe version of Mighty Morphin’ Tommy Oliver who went on to become an evil Green/White Ranger hybrid that desires to destroy every Ranger across the multiverse–will be in the game as well. According to the game’s website, there are 11 more characters scheduled for the game, but their identities have not been revealed.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is scheduled to release for Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC in April 2019. If you pre-order the game, you’ll receive the Mighty Morphin’ Green Ranger v2 character skin.

New The Division 2 PvP Details Announced, Including How The Dark Zones Work

Ubisoft has announced how PvP play will look in The Division 2. There will be two forms of PvP multiplayer in the game–the first of which takes place in the game’s Dark Zones.

Similar to its predecessor’s Dark Zone, The Division 2’s three Dark Zones–of which there is an east, south, and west–are PvEvP areas where you can choose to take action against other players. In a blog post, Ubisoft explained how it has changed the way players will perceive you if you perform aggressive actions against others. There are three statuses you can hold if you attack other players in one of the Dark Zones.

If you’re mostly performing aggressive, yet relatively harmless actions–such as stealing from other players or hijacking a supply drop–you’ll be labeled as a Rogue. As a Rogue, you can enter Thieves Den, which operates as a black market that randomly moves around the Dark Zones. Exiting the Den returns you to your normal state, but killing a player while Rogue will cause you to become Disavowed.

Being Disavowed paints a target on your back. Any other player that kills you earns a bounty, so you’ll have to be careful while exploring the Dark Zones. If you kill enough players, you’ll be upgraded to Manhunt status. You’ll still have to contend with bounty hunters while at Manhunt status, but you’ll be able unlock huge rewards if you can reach one of the three random SHD terminals and clear your notoriety.

The Division 2’s second form of PvP play is a more traditional, organized multiplayer called Conflict. Conflict is split into two modes, Skirmish and Domination. Skirmish is team deathmatch, while Domination is focused on capturing objectives and defending them from the other team. Ubisoft has announced three maps for both modes will launch with the game: Capital Ruins, Stadium, and Georgetown.

The Division 2 releases for Xbox One, PS4, and PC on March 15. The PC version of the game, previously scheduled for Steam, will now come out exclusively on the Epic Games Store. If you want to try out the game before deciding whether or not to buy it, there’s a beta scheduled for all three systems that launches next month.
