Vogt-Roberts has officially signed on to direct the studio’s first-ever live-action feature film version of Gundam for Netflix, which will be based on the universe of Sunrise’s iconic Japanese robot franchise.This marks Legendary and Netflix’s latest collaboration together, the two companies previously worked on films such as 2016’s Spectral and last year’s Enola Holmes as well as shows like Lost in Space and Pacific Rim: The Black.

    Mortal Blitz: Combat Arena comes to PlayStation VR October 8

    We’re thrilled to finally release Mortal Blitz: Combat Arena on PlayStation VR October 8. Thanks to your feedback on the Open Beta that we held in August, we were able to make lots of improvements to the final product. Mortal Blitz was one of PlayStation VR’s top downloads when it originally launched in April 2017. Now, we have created an online, free-to-play PvP version that exists in the same universe as the original. Free to play PVP Experience various weapons and fast, dynamic battles for free. You can experience these real time battles in Quick match mode (PvP) with up to four players, or hop into Mission Mode (PvE) for some single-player action. PlayStation Plus users will get access to special Arena packs, which include costumes and items. PS VR Aim Controller and DualShock 4 supported Combat Arena is optimized for the PS VR Aim Controller! Using the Aim Controller, you can engage in more realistic battles. Of course, DualShock 4 also offers optimized play! You can fully enjoy the game either way, but using the Aim controller will definitely surprise you. PVP, PVE Battle: Strategic Map Whether playing in Quick Match (PvP) or Mission (a PvE story mode playable after purchase of the Standard Edition), players will employ different strategies and tactics to overcome tense battles across different maps. Use height and surrounding terrain to your advantage, avoid enemies’ fire and attack from behind when possible.  Unique weapons In Mortal Blitz: Combat Arena, you’ll employ weapons like miniguns with a fast fire rate, shotguns that excel in short-range encounters, rocket launchers that deal extensive damage, and rail guns with a narrow spread but huge damage potential. In particular, Rampage, which can blow up a barrier and an enemy with a single bullet, is the most powerful weapon in the Combat Arena. Seek to acquire this weapon early on and you can control the battlefield with terrifying power! But don’t forget: if you’re too strong, you’ll become prey for all. Customized items You can obtain a variety of custom items by opening Arena Packs, which can be obtained through a battle pass or store purchases. Try wearing costumes, boosters, and weapons in the customize menu. The higher the rating, the more splendid the appearance! Season 1: Geist The Combat Arena runs on a seasonal basis and will be also updated within the season. Experience more PvP maps, various weapons, and even new modes! Purchasing the Standard Edition enables you to have daily, weekly, and seasonal missions, plus additional rewards are given by raising the tier of the battle pass upon completion of the mission. If you purchase a season battle pass, you can earn more premium rewards. Items that can only be acquired in a battle pass will make you shine even more. Androids and competitors around the world are waiting for you. Enter the Combat Arena and claim victory!
