Star Wars Celebration News

With the gaming sphere having a slow week, I thought it would be nice to catch up on some of the big news coming out of the Star Wars Celebration 2023! To start off, Andor will be receiving a new season set for August 2024, which was a great series focused on the smaller characters’ impact on the universe. The Ahsoka trailer has also dropped, which you can see here, especially if you are interested in how her story will continue after appearing in the Mandalorian. The biggest surprise comes in the form of Daisy Ridley (Rey) being announced to take part in another movie set 15 years after the Rise of Skywalker. While I have my opinions about the prequels, it will be interesting to see where they will take Rey’s story arc. Also don’t forget to check out the Jedi Survivor trailer coming out on Sunday.

 

Resident Evil IV Remake Mercenaries Mode

With the glowing reviews surrounding the Resident Evil IV remake, it is good to hear they are going the extra step in providing everything that the original has to offer. Mercenaries mode will allow a non-story gameplay loop that puts the player up against timed challenges. This should bring some longevity to the game for people who have already beaten the campaign and want a new experience. Check out more here.
