AMD Vega II release date, news and rumors

The wait for a new AMD graphics card has been long and arduous, but Vega II may put AMD back on the map. That keynote paired with the recent spotting of a new trademark application for what looks like a Vega II logo strongly hint at Vega II featuring in the keynote. AMD Vega II priceIf you thought AMD Vega II’s release date was nebulous, pricing on AMD’s new graphics cards is an even bigger mystery as we practically haven’t seen any reports to suggest anything.

AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation release date, news and rumors

AMD changed the world with its first Ryzen processors and impressed us even more with its sophomore release of CPUs, but we expect Ryzen 3rd Generation will truly blow Intel out of the water.

Alien teaser hints at another Amanda Ripley game

20th Century Fox's latest Alien teaser suggests fans of the franchise will soon find out more about Alien: Isolation protagonist Amanda Ripley, and the teaser's "Read. Play" strapline suggests that could involve a new game. The teaser, below, says that Ripley's story "deserves to be told", and that whatever it's hinting at is "coming soon".

Doom composer Mick Gordon recruits heavy metal choir for next soundtrack

Mick Gordon, the composer behind the soundtracks for Wolfenstein: The New Order, Killer Instinct and 2016's Doom, is pulling together a choir of heavy metal screamers for his next game. In the recruitment video, above, he simply says it's for "a video game"—my money would be on 2019's Doom Eternal, which has a decidedly metal look. Gordon is known to be working on the soundtrack. The video is an open invitation to metal screamers, but you'll have to be over 18 and free in the first week of March
