Red Dead Redemption rumors debunked, Death Strandings creator calls out Battle Royale

and a Warhammer 40k tv show confirmed.

On this week's episode of Frequency.

Rumors ran rampant earlier this week when a credible Reddit user took to the boards

with a juicy post about not only a Red Dead Redemption remaster but also Red Dead Redemption

2 DLC that was allegedly like Undead Nightmare but with Aliens.

Alas, the rumor wasn't meant to be, and the reasoning behind it was strange.

Reddit user Throwaway 11113454 sparked the rumor mill when he shared a detailed post

from an alleged Rockstar employee that stated both a remaster was on the way as well as

an alien-themed DLC for the game's sequel.

The alien DLC was believable both for the fact that news of DLC had been quiet, and

that players found a few interesting UFO easter eggs within the open-world game.

A remaster was also likely given the massive amount of success Red Dead Redemption 2 is

seeing and how every studio seems to be re-releasing beloved games.

The original poster eventually confessed after numerous outlets shared this reported news,

saying that it was a "experiment" regarding rumors and video game culture.

Though rumors should always be taken with a grain of salt, we're thinking it was shared

more because it was probable and its SEO juiciness, rather than it's a blind pickup.

Battle Royale is everywhere.

So much so that when any online game is revealed, the most common knee jerk reaction from gamers

is "will it have Battle Royale?".

Though the popular PVP mode does have its perks, Deaths Strandings creator Hideo Kojima,

recently divulged his opinion on the trend during his panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2019.

The verdict?

Not a fan.

When speaking during his panel, Kojima mentioned that Battle Royale just doesn't fit within

his creative vision.

Saying that, the easiest way to make money is to make a game where everyone is on an

island trying to shoot each other.

Kojima hasn't been shy when talking about the extreme efforts he's been going through

to ensure that Death Stranding will be unlike anything, anyone has ever seen.

Which makes it pretty easy to envision why he would stray away from such a popularized

game mode.

We'll be able to see for ourselves how different Death Stranding truly is when it makes its

way over onto PS4 on November 8th.

Good news Warhammer fans!

Big Light Productions and Games Workshop are joining forces to produce a new live-action

TV series based on the 40k Eisenhorn novels, with X-Files Alumni Frank Spotnitz as the


Frank Spotnitz said, and I quote "Warhammer 40,000 is steeped in rich and complex lore.

With a myriad of traditions and stories that have accumulated over time.

In this thrilling and complex world.

Making it one of the most exciting properties to adapt for television audiences and the

franchises' loyal global fanbase.

There is nothing else like it on television, and we are incredibly excited to tap into

our own experience creating imaginative, complex and compelling worlds to bring this incredible

saga to the screen."

The show will follow Gregor Eisenhorn, a relentless force in a dark future of Warhammer, that

doesn't shy away from destroying any demons in his path.

He's powerful, dedicated and now apparently,

Coming to a screen near you.

We don't have a release date at this time, though more will be revealed as the project

continues to make progress.
