Destiny's new expansion, The Taken King, is set to be released on September 15. It comes with the usual things expansions have to offer: new missions, new weapons, and it even raises the level cap. There is also a new raid to go with it: "The King's Fall." Raids are complicated team-based missions which require a great deal of coordination and planning. However, it appears that this raid does not get released at the same time as the other content. Bungie hasn't revealed when the raid will be released, nor did they give a reason for the delay, so the only thing players can do is wait for it and level up to prepare.

The long-awaited date has arrived, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (likely series creator Hideo Kojima's last entry) has released. Last week, Kojima said that he was working with Geoff Keighley and Greg Miller on a commemoration video to launch alongside the game. That video released today, and it's quite an emotional send-off for Kojima.

Members of Kojima's staff (along with Keighley and Miller) share their thoughts and memories from the franchise in a series of exit interviews. Afterwards, Kojima visits a family that lost a son to cancer. The son, Sean Paul Gillespie, was a passionate fan of Metal Gear, and an email he wrote to Kojima and his staff gave them inspiration during their toughest hour. You can watch the touching video, dedicated to Sean, by clicking below.

EA has just announced that an online beta for the upcoming game Star Wars Battlefront will be coming early next month.

The Star Wars Battlefront beta will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Origin on PC in early October. It will feature the 40-player multiplayer battle Walker Assault on Hoth, as well as cooperative mission Survival Mission on Tatooine; both of these game modes were shown off at E3. The beta will also include a brand new game mode called Drop Zone, which EA will share more details about in the coming weeks. Head inside for more.

Both Sony and Microsoft have had a very strong start to the young generation, with PlayStation 4 smashing sales records and quickly eclipsing 25 million global sales, and Xbox One outpacing its predecessor. By the NPD Group's count, combined sales of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are 50% higher than their predecessors in the US. This boost in early momentum has been especially beneficial for GameStop. During a recent conference call, COO Tony Bartel reported that PlayStation 4 sales are triple those of PlayStation 3 after 22 months, and Xbox One sales are nearly double those of Xbox 360.

It's become commonplace for developers to release console bundles that include a digital download code for a free game, but GameStop would like to change this. The popular video game retailer opted not to sell the Madden NFL 16 bundle with a digital code, instead offering a free physical copy of the game to customers who purchased a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, and this practice could continue.

During a recent conference call for quarter two, GameStop Chief Operating Officer Tony Bartel announced that they are working with Sony and Microsoft in particular to promote bundle deals that include physical games rather than digital ones. This is beneficial to GameStop (and customers as well), as a large portion of their business is used game sales.

This bundle includes physical versions of both games, making it the only way to pick up a physical copy of Resident Evil 0 HD. You can check out the trailer by clicking below!

Square Enix announced today that the highly-anticipated Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will launch on February 23rd, 2016. The game's pre-order bonuses operate on a tiered system, and it appears that players will receive more bonuses as more pre-orders are placed.

Tier three unlocks an extra mission. Tier 4 adds a digital comic and novella, and finally, the fifth tier gives players the game four days early.

Additionally, a collector's edition will be available. This includes all of the pre-order bonuses from the various tiers as well as a collectible steelbook case and 8-inch Adam Jensen statue.

Microsoft has just announced a new Xbox One bundle for the elite among their fans.

The superior hard drive allows for more storage and faster loading times, while the Elite controller gives players all kinds of play options. This bundle launches on November 3rd for $499 and will initially only be available at GameStop and on the Microsoft Store, though its availability could increase at a later date.

Microsoft also unveiled a new Xbox One special edition lunar white wireless controller. This special controller has a white and gold color scheme and improved grip texture.

Unfortunately, I have some bad news for Xbox fans out there who are still hoping to get into the Xbox One Preview Program. Program Manager Emily Hanson announced that the program is nearing capacity and they will have to start slowing down their rate of acceptance due to an overwhelming response from fans.

Star Wars Battlefront is one of the most highly-anticipated upcoming games, winning numerous awards at Gamescom (including "Best of Gamescom," "Most Wanted," and "Best Online Multiplayer"), but not everyone is sold. The game's development is being handled by EA DICE, the developer behind the highly successful Battlefield franchise, and many are worried that Battlefront will just feel like a Star Wars-skinned Battlefield game. DICE general manager Patrick Bach recently addressed this, asserting that the two games are as far apart as any two shooters can be. Click below for his thoughts.

Inti Creates president Takuya Aizu and game director Koji Igarashi recently held a PAX Prime panel for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, the Kickstarter-fueled spiritual successor to Castlevania. During the panel, it was revealed that you'll be able to customize your look in the game, choosing between different clothes, hats, masks, and hair colors. Aside from just aesthetic changes, these custom options will also give you different stat boosts, so you can get strategic with your look! It should be a nice touch to spice up the already much-hyped game.

During Gamescom, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata stated that the upcoming RPG would release before 2017, which gives it a 2016 launch window. Just to make sure there was no confusion, Tabata has clarified at PAX Prime that 2016 is indeed when the game is coming out. Adding to this, Tabata mentioned on the Active Time Report broadcast that Square Enix will hold a special event for the game in March 2016, and the release date will be announced at that time. Just a little while longer, Final Fantasy faithful!
