35 million people have played Overwatch 2 .

As of October 4, 35 million people have played the multiplayer shooter. 25 million of them joined the game almost immediately after it was released. Despite the highly controversial format, publicity errors, an imperfect balance and a host of other issues that have generated waves of hatred from gamers.

The game is the first in the series to be developed by Activision Blizzard. It is also the second game in the game series to have been developed by the company. The game is free to play, but there are probably several million gamers who have no intention of returning to this shooter.

The plot of the Gran Turismo movie is based on a true story, and it will feature the F1 track.

The writers were inspired by the fate and career of the real-life racer Ian Mardenborough. In 2011 he won the GT Academy tournament, beating out almost a hundred thousand competitors. What’s so special about this Brit? That he started out as a simple gamer and cyber athlete. Mardenboro made his debut in the 24 hours of Dubai behind the wheel of a Nissan GT-R. He has since built a full-fledged career in motorsport. He did not become a superstar and his fame is mainly due to a unique career path, but even such successes can and should be proud. His story definitely deserves to be made into a movie, even if he’s formally the hero of the film and becomes a different person. Let’s hope Sony doesn’t screw this up.

Also, motorsport fans may be delighted to see footage of famous race tracks. One of them will already be guaranteed to be the Hungarian Hungaroring, which has been regularly hosting the Grand Prix of Formula-1 since 1986, as well as races of a number of less significant series.

The Gran Turismo film is set to premiere in 2023, and the cast includes some pretty famous personalities like Orlando Bloom, Jimon Honsou and David Harbour. The young pilot will be played by Archie Madekwe. It was directed by Oscar nominee Neil Blomkamp.

Dragon Quest will receive a ballet adaptation in December.

A ballet based on a JRPG series will be broadcast in Japan. The script of the ballet is original, but all events will be written into the universe of cult Japanese role-playing games. In addition, the performance will be accompanied by an orchestra: it will perform 41 compositions from the soundtracks to the first six parts of Dragon Quest. Dragon Quest Ballet was previously shown at Japan Expo in 2019, but may now become a regular.

The Nintendo Switch release did not save Alan Wake Remastered.

Finnish studio Remedy once again stated that sales of the Alan Wake remaster are much lower than its expectations. Even the release of the version for the super-popular Nintendo Switch three weeks ago could not significantly change the situation. If fans actively ask for a remaster or a sequel, it does not guarantee that the fulfillment of their wishes will not turn out to be a failure for developers and publishers. As if that wasn’t enough, the Xbox One and Xbox Series CrossfireX free-to-play shooter isn’t quite as successful as Remedy would like it to be.

However, despite all the difficulties, the Finns continue to work on Alan Wake 2 and intend to release a new horror adventure in 2023.

Kevin Conroy has passed away. He was the voice of Batman for 30 years.

On November 10, actor Kevin Conroy, who had played Batman in feature films and cartoons since 1992, died of cancer at the age of 66. With six different actors portraying Gotham’s protector in the movies since then, it’s no wonder that Conroy is the truly enduring voice of Batman.

Kevin Conroy has also voiced the Dark Knight in a number of games featuring the character, including Rocksteady’s acclaimed Batman Arkham series, and the upcoming fighting game MultiVersus.

LEGO refused to release a The Legend of Zelda constructor.

The results of the fan votes on the LEGO Ideas portal have led to the famous designer manufacturer launching new interesting themed sets more than once. The idea of creating a constructor based on The Legend of Zelda, which was warmly supported by the public, will remain a dream. LEGO refused to develop this project.

Given that the LEGO Group has been working with Nintendo in recent years to release licensed Super Mario constructors, fans may have wanted to send a message through voting: “You’re giving away a Zelda constructor. We’ll buy it! But it seems that the corporations have their own view of the situation and other plans…

Co-creators of Pokemon games are looking for people to work with next-generation “iron”.

The Nintendo Switch is still selling very well, but the console is in its sixth year, which is provoking more and more frequent talk and rumors about possible successors to the popular platform. The Japanese company Creatures Inc., for example, has already started looking for new employees with a focus on the next generation of Nintendo consoles.

Technically, the studio has a 3D modeling job open for the unnamed next-generation “iron”, and Nintendo isn’t mentioned in the description. However, Creatures Inc. has spent its entire 33-year history working on Nintendo console games, and most often on the Pokemon series, so you can draw your own conclusions.

Death Stranding has reached a total audience of 10 million people.

Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding turned three years old on November 8. In three years, 10 million people have played the futuristic action game. The game was created under the direction of the legendary Hideo K Mojima. It is a not-so-casual action game that raises complex issues.

If you haven’t played Death Stranding yet, we recommend reading our reviews: both the original PS4 version and the enhanced re-release:.

The Game Boy cat: a fan-made creation based on the Stray action.

Stray cat action adventure in the form of a game for the famous pocket retro platform. The authors have carefully preserved not only the plot and setting of the original Stray, but also one of its key advantages realistic motion animation. And in closing, I want to focus on a favorite topic of all of you, which is, of course, the Game Boy handheld.

It’s a bit of a shame that the Game Boy-styled Stray adaptation will remain a fan demo. But the original version is available on both current generations of PlayStaton and PC. If you want to know more about Stray read our review written by Alexei Ivanov!
