Watch Days Gone’s new tourist-friendly trailer and enjoy 7 dangerous sights

The latest Days Gone trailer is half tourism advertisement for a semi-fictional location and half grim reminder that most things in the game want to kill you. Except for the deer, they're ok. You can watch the full trailer for yourself above and scroll on for some highlights that show off Days Gone's dangerous (but purdy) world. Low-lying mist is a common sight out on the roads, trails, and valleys where you'll spend much of your time in Days Gone. Freakers converge at the riverFreakers are a pa

YouTube bans ‘harmful or dangerous’ prank videos

YouTube has updated its guidelines to ban any dangerous prank or 'challenge' videos, which either cause children "severe emotional distress" or makes the target of a prank think they're in "serious physical danger." Any videos that are found to contain that kind of content will be removed, with channel owners possibly facing a 'strike' , with three strikes resulting in "account termination". Inspired by Netflix's Original science-fiction film starring Sandra Bullock, the Bird Box Challenge repor

Over 10K Elite Dangerous pilots embarked on Distant Worlds 2, though a few faceplanted into a 3.3G planet

Distant Worlds 2 is Elite: Dangerous' second organized journey across the Milky Way to the remote Beagle Point, and it's the space sim's largest group expedition yet. Last weekend, over 10,000 players launched from Pallaeni as the expedition kicked off, a number confirmed by Frontier CEO David Braben. One consequence of gathering so many players in each instance was an invasion of NPC ships. In memory of The View's multiple casualties, Commander Flimsie offered a poem on Reddit:There once was a

Over 8,000 Elite Dangerous pilots are embarking on an incredible 18-week journey

Thousands of Elite Dangerous players—over 8,000, according to the sign-up sheet—are preparing to embark on another incredible voyage across the Milky Way. The destination is Beagle Point, some 65,279 light years from Earth, past the galactic core, at the very edge of the galaxy. The first Distant Worlds expedition also targeted Beagle Point, retreading the journey taken by Commander Erimus and the DSS Beagle—hence the name of the destination. Though the target remains Beagle, the hope is that Di

Bury Me, My Love is the stirring story of a refugee’s dangerous journey

Bury Me, My Love, a powerful interactive tale of one woman’s migration from Syria to France, came out on mobile devices in late 2017.

More than 4,600 Elite: Dangerous players will embark on an epic, eight-month journey

Early next year, they’ll embark on one of the largest and most dangerous journeys ever undertaken in the game. I decided to upgrade my frame shift drive, which will allow me to navigate some of the most challenging sections of the Distant Worlds 2 expedition. For Distant Worlds 2, the fleet will be even larger, second only to the 3,000 player space battle that I documented in 2017. The amount of planning that’s gone into Distant Worlds 2 is extraordinary. To add color to the experience, the team

The new Elite Dangerous update makes exploration more fun

Today marks the release of Beyond: Chapter Four , the latest free update for Elite Dangerous. But the most exciting thing, for me anyway, is a complete overhaul of how exploration works in the game. When you jump into a fresh, unexplored system, you can switch to a new FSS, or Full Spectral System, mode. But if you want more detailed information, you can ‘tune’ the spectral analysis chart, just like you’d tune an old radio, to find out more about an object. Drag the dial over one of the spectral

Elite Dangerous: Beyond’s Chapter 4 update introduces squadrons next week

Elite Dangerous: Beyond’s final chapter launches this month, bringing with it some nifty additions to mining and exploration and, perhaps even more importantly, formal in-game groups, known as squadrons. You’ll be able to team up with big groups of your space mates when Chapter 4 launches on December 11. Between trade runs, exploring is mostly what I do in Elite, but the scanner has never felt particularly engaging. In a future update, they’ll also be able to get fleet carriers that act as mobil

Dear Serena Williams: Iron Man is the most dangerous Avenger. You’re welcome.

On Wednesday, Tennis star Serena Williams asked Twitter a very simple question, prompting an extended debate inside the Polygon offices. Yes, Iron Man. Unlike his teammates, Iron Man is the Avenger who has directly caused the most damage in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Iron Man is power and delusion left completely unchecked, and the results have been disastrous. What Serena Williams does with this information is up to her.
