Back in August it was announced that the new Hitman game was getting a multi-player mode. They even released a trailer…


Now, in case there were any doubters, a new behind-the-scenes video shows even more details about the new multi-player mode. Personally, I think it looks pretty cool, but what do you think? Does it seem like a cheap tacked on excuse for a multi-player mode? Or, does it look decent and are you excited for it?

Bioware has recently revealed that all three Mass Effect titles will be bundled into one collection and will be released on November 6th, 2012. No news on whether DLC will be included in the collection but one can assume that DLC will be included for the first two titles at least. Then November 7th, otherwise known as N7 day, will be a day of celebration for the series and will include a variety of in-game, online, and live events in which fans can congregate and “fly their N7 colors”.



The Trilogy Bundle is priced at $59.99 and at that price it’s like getting three games for the price of one! Personally, I’ll have to pass on this one since I’ve already purchased all the available DLC online, but will you be buying this?

Hopefully this means that the rest us can look forward to Episodes 4 & 5 being released soon…
