Quake Receives A Fresh Update With Machine Games Providing A New Horde Mode

Quake, which was re-released for modern consoles and PC back in August, is receiving even more love from the devs at Bethesda and Wolfenstein developer Machine Games with a new mode and content added with Update 2. Out today on all platforms, Update 2 brings a host of big fixes, but most importantly, an entirely new Horde Mode. Developed by the team at Machine Games, Quakes Horde Mode pits teams of 1-4 local or online players (or bots!) against swarms of AI enemies on four brand new horde maps. Every third wave of baddies will include a boss which coughs up a silver key which can be cashed in to collect more weapons and items, bolstering your arsenal for further battles.

    Spider-Man 3: Sony Pictures Addresses Tobey Maguire & Andrew Garfield Rumors

    Following the recent additions of Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, MCU fans’ speculations and theories about Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures’ highly-anticipated third Spider-Man MCU film have continued to grow this month. One very popular casting rumor is that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are reportedly in talks to reprise their respective versions of Spider-Man.

    Now, Sony Pictures has finally addressed this rumor through Entertainment Tonight by giving out a simple and intriguing response that didn’t outright deny the existence of Maguire and Garfield’s potential involvement in the Tom Holland-led Spider-Man 3.

    “Those rumored castings are not confirmed,” a representative from the studio said.

    It was also surprising that the studio decided to respond to rumors, especially when they haven’t done it before on previous projects. If big casting negotiations like this are indeed happening behind-the-scenes, it’s understandable that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios would like to keep this major reveal for the future when negotiations have already been finalized.

    Tom Holland will return for the film as the titular wall-crawler, and it remains to be seen what villains he’ll go up against in the trilogy caper. Given the ending of Far From Home however, any number of his rogues gallery are likely eager for a fight. The third installment to the MCU’s Spider-Man films will also feature the return of Zendaya (Euphoria, Dune) as MJ. Holland’s Spider-Man is also set to appear in another Marvel Studios film per the new agreement.

    While most of the original series cast are set to return for the threequel, Foxx’s casting further blurs the lines across Sony’s three webslinging franchises, with the previous installment bringing back J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson from Sam Raimi’s trilogy and the studio’s Sony Universe of Marvel Characters led by Venom expected to crossover into the Marvel Cinematic Universe series soon.

    Originally scheduled for a July 16, 2021 release, the untitled Spider-Man 3 was first pushed back to November 5 and will now bow on December 17, 2021. The untitled third installment’s previous release date was recently given to Uncharted, with Holland revealing in an Instagram video that production on the webslinging title should begin around February 2021 after the conclusion of the filming for Nathan Drake’s long-awaited big-screen debut.

    Sony’s upcoming Spidey slate includes the Venom sequel, starring Tom Hardy and directed by Andy Serkis, as well as Jared Leto’s in-the-can Morbius, a Kraven the Hunter film, and a spinoff featuring Silver Sable and Black Cat. Should these films interact with the MCU and Tom Holland, it remains to be seen, but the door seems open.
