So, you know how launch trailers usually come out at the time of a game's actual release date? Yeah, well Activision apparently isn't having any of that, as the launch day trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has been released two weeks ahead the game's Nov. 4 launch date.

As one might expect, the trailer is packed full of military grade weapons, Kevin Spacey, and enough testosterone to make a Jean Claude Van Damme film feel like child's play. Oh, and Double XP. Never forget Double XP. 

Make the jump to view the trailer in all of its pre-hyped glory.  

Bungie's latest weekly update outlines a variety of changes being made to Destiny this coming week, with a specific focus on Atheon, The Vault of Glass' final boss, and another update for the coveted Vex Mythoclast — a weapon only earned by completing Destiny's raid on hard mode.

Recently, videos have popped up on YouTube in which players demonstrate how to force Atheon to walk off the edge of the map (an exploit that Bungie isn't happy about). Thus, the developer will be adding in "baby bumpers" to prevent this tactic in the future, also noting that "Knocking a boss off a ledge is a bug. We will seek to address bugs like these as quickly as possible."

    

A recent leak by a supposed Destiny tester has given us a glimpse into what may be the next expansion to the game. A post on Pastebin gives details of something called "The Dark Below", which appears to add a new area and class specializations to the game. 

It may have been criticized for a lack of content at its launch, but Bungie has long-term plans to keep adding to the Destiny universe. Hopefully, "The Dark Below" (if it exists) will be the first in a long line of expansions for what has become the biggest game release of the year.

There is a possibility that a second DLC character for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is on its way. The first, the Doppelganger, has been announced and is included with the Season Pass. Se7enSins community user TechnoJacker used data mining in order to reveal the second hidden character. "Aurelia The Baroness" is her name, but that's all the information we have currently. While still a rumor at this point, an in-game image has also been revealed by TechnoJacker, lending credence to the existence of such a character.

Destiny's latest patch (1.0.2.2) is live, and it brings with it a variety of fixes to the game's weapon balancing — most notably a 34 percent decrease in base damage for the Vex Mythoclast — as well as some major changes to the Templar battle in The Vault of Glass, making it tougher for players to hide atop the sniper towers found around the exterior of the bosses arena. 

As an added aside, the latest hotfix from Bungie also shuts down the "loot cave" found by players in the Rocket Yard. If you've been farming engrams there, you have our condolences, but who knows...a new loot cave could turn up when you least expect it.

In the meantime, you can check out the full set of patch notes after the jump.    

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from the past week in Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was a strong week. New Nintendo 3DS launched to the tune of over 230,000 sales, fueled largely by the incredible sales of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, which sold over 1.4 million (Famitsu puts the sales estimate at around 1.6 million) in just two days. The regular (old?) 3DS and 3DS XL models also saw a slight sales improvement over last week, as did PlayStation 4. Vita's numbers slipped a little this week, as there was only one new game on that platform. Hit the jump for the full breakdown!

Resident Evil: Revelations' sequel, aptly named Resident Evil: Revelations 2 has received a release date through the PlayStation Store. The survival-horror game will release on February 17th, 2015, with new episodes following each week. Each episode costs $5.99, or a season pass can be purchased for $24.99. Revelations 2 will release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC, avoiding the platforms it was born on.

Assassin's Creed Rogue is an upcoming historical action-adventure game developed and published by Ubisoft for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC (Windows). Gameplay features combat in the streets of New York and naval battles in Arctic waters, and the story puts you in the shoes of Assassin-turned-Templar Shay Cormac who follows his own path and decides to turn on the Assassins Brotherhood.

The game will be releasing for consoles in mid November and for PC in 2015, and will take place during the Seven Years' War in between 1752 and 1761. Learn more about Rogue and check out its storyline trailer by clicking on the jump below!

Bungie's much-hyped online sci-fi shooter Destiny is off to a fast start in terms of sales numbers. We already know it's the fastest-selling game on PlayStation 4 to date (including first-party exclusives) and it grossed over $325 million in its first week on the market, but now that it's been out for over a month, are people still playing it? Bungie reports that an average of 3.2 million people boot up Destiny every day, and more time has been spent on Destiny so far than Halo 3 and Halo: Reach combined during the same time period. Hit the jump for Bungie's official statement!

With the spooky season almost upon us, it's perhaps appropriate that Shinji Mikami's The Evil Within is getting excellent reviews from many critics. The survival horror game was released today to generally positive response, with all the major game review websites weighing in.

The scores from the main game critics were generally positive, showing Mikami has worked his terrifying magic on yet another title. Some critics, however, criticised the game's design.
