Explaining Group Dynamics and Crafting in Fade to Silence, Available Now on Xbox One

A world covered in a white blanket. Giant ice pillars rise from frozen lakes and rivers, turning the landscape into a surreal eternal winter nightmare. At any time, the weather can change into a deadly blizzard in which the chances of survival are slim. In Fade to Silence, you need to survive against these odds.

Horus and Set Arrive in Smite: The Battleground of the Gods

Horus and Set — the legendary Egyptian rivals — are now playable characters in Smite on Xbox One and we’re excited to share a few details about what makes these new gods unique and fun to play.

Fate Of The Furious Director Attached To Saints Row Movie

It’s been a while since we’ve heard the words “Saints Row” spoken aloud, but that’s about to change. According to Deadline, a film adaptation of the gonzo open-world series is in the works, and F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton, The Fate of the Furious, Men in Black: International) is attached to direct.

Greg Russo is writing the script for the film. It’s not Russo’s first crack at working within the game space, either. He’s also working on the script for the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot.

In other movie/game news, we got our first glimpse of the film adaptation of Sonic the Hedgehog in motion earlier this morning. Then again, if you spent any time online today, you’ve probably been overwhelmed by the reaction already.

The launch lineup consists of 53 games and apps, but Oculus says this list could change slightly in the weeks ahead.
