Destiny's next major DLC may be titled Rise of Iron

The title of the next major Destiny expansion may have been revealed, via a leaked image bearing the moniker Rise of Iron.

First appearing on Reddit before being confirmed authentic by Kotaku, the image is supposedly marketing material being prepped for next month's E3 conference.

It appears to show NPC character Lord Saladin, surrounded by wolves, wielding a flaming battle-axe, in front of a snow-capped and breached section of the Earth Cosmodrome's Wall.

That could indicate the DLC will revolve around the Iron Banner PvP events (of which Saladin is purveyor and wolves are mascots), or it could relate to the Battle of Twilight Gap, a significant event in the game's lore which itself is tied to the Iron Banner.

Minecraft is getting an official PvP arena minigame

PvP arena combat is coming to Minecraft in an official capacity, Mojang has announced.

Console versions of the game will soon gain a mode called Battle, a "last-Minecrafter-standing deathmatch" that pits players directly against one another.

Taking place in specially-designed arenas, each with different rules and hazards, the arena mode is designed to be fast-paced and tactical, with loot offering an added risk/reward mechanic.

Rumours, domains, blind hope point to return of Prey 2

Bethesda has registered domain names that have brought some to believe Prey 2 will finally re-emerge at E3 2016.

Prey2.com and Prey3.com have been purchased by the same company would-be publisher Bethesda used to buy domains for Doom and Dishonored, faintly indicating the firm's desire to either announce those games or to sit on the domains until it can.

Both domains redirect to a locked-out Facebook page for the time being.
