All the news, all in one place.
It’s been a long old week, and I know most of you are too busy to keep up with all of the news that’s been floating about the internet. So I’m back again with the weekly news roundup, gracing your Saturday breakfast with a quick catchup of all the stuff you’ve missed. This week, we’ve got an early confirmation of Horizon Zero Dawn 2, the announcement that Shazam has come to LEGO DC Super Villains, and that the newest character in Mortal Combat 11 is none other than The Kollector. So sit back, drink your tea, and read over the highlights.
Horizon Zero Dawn 2 is on the way
… at least, that’s what Janina Gavankar (the voice actor for Tatai in the Frozen Wild DLC) may have accidentally let on during a livestream this week. She seems to be outright confirming a sequel, whereas there’s been no official confirmation from Guerrilla Games yet. We’ll keep you updated if we hear any more, and in the meantime, check out our review of the original game here.
