Check out the Red Dead Redemption 2 launch trailer

Red Dead Redemption 2 is only one week away from it's October 26th launch. After what feels like years of waiting we finally have a launch trailer to add fuel to the blazing hype fire.

The new trailer, while not as long as the previous two, does a great job of introducing players to some of the world and characters many of us will likely end up spending hundreds of hours with.

Check out the trailer below!

RDR 2 has been in the news a lot recently, with rumors of the game shipping on two discs, a massive install size and the blowout from incorrect reports of one hundred hour work weeks for some of the staff at Rockstar.

Red Dead Redemption 2 rumoured to ship on 2 discs

If a leaked game cover is to be believed, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be shipping on two discs.

I haven't seen any other instances of this generation's console titles needing more than one disc, thanks mostly to the use of dual-layer Blu-ray discs on both Xbox and PlayStation.

Each disc can hold up to 50GB of data, which has been more than enough so far, but Red Dead's need for 105GB of HDD space seems to have killed that streak.

Sean Bean is ready to die yet again in Hitman 2

Sean Bean is ready to die yet again in Hitman 2

IO Interactive and Warner Bros. have pulled back the curtain on the first Elusive Target for the upcoming Hitman 2, and it's an actor that everyone seems to love to kill. Sean Bean will star as disgraced MI5 agent, turned assassin for hire, Mark Faba.

In a humorous bit of self-awareness, Bean's character aka "The Undying", is seen chatting to a suspiciously hairless therapist. Faba states "I never expected to be like this, but they keep trying to kill me, you know? I've cheated death countless times. I'm like a stage magician. I know all the tricks. They think they're clever, but they've got nothing on me. I even managed to make them think I'd been blown up."

During the trailer, Faba boasts about how he's managed to elude death and is quite the seasoned killer himself. He goes on to show how he can use everyday items to dispatch his victims, like a toy robot flash bang, an explosive pen and a pair of curiously strong headphones. Players will be able to vote on which of these weapons will turn up in the game for them to use on unsuspecting targets.

CoD physical sales continue to decline with Black Ops 4

While Activision might be celebrating a new record in Day One digital sales for the Call of Duty franchise, physical sales have dropped significantly.

According to sales data from the UK chart – and analysis by Eurogamer – Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has sold 50 percent fewer physical copies than last year's WW2. Meanwhile sales are also down 59 percent from Black Ops 3.

Physical sales for Call of Duty have been on the decline for quite some time. Seeing an all-time high with Modern Warfare 3 in 2011, the only uptick was seen in with WW2's release.

Numerous PlayStation 4 users are reporting that an unrecognisable character sent via PSN messages has caused their console to crash.

Similar issues have occurred previously on mobile devices, typically causing trouble for a limited number of apps. Here, the issue is causing a system crash followed by an inability to start properly.

The exploit is being used by nefarious users [read: dickheads] to take down opposing players in multiplayer games like Rainbow Six: Seige.
