PUBG Heads Towards Release, Gets New Weapon

With PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds headed towards its official release on December 12, we are slowly getting an influx of things to be included in the final release. Today, Nvidia announced via their website that there will be a new revolver added to the game.

This six-shot revolver will be named the R45 and will use the.45 ACP ammo type. The R45 can only be looted on the new desert map Miramar as a world spawn item and is set to serve as Miramar’s replacement for Erangel’s R1895 revolver. The R45 will also come with a speed loader, placing its reload speed closer to that of other pistols. While it can utilize a red dot sight to increase your accuracy, it will not be able to use a silencer, unlike the R1895.

While Miramar and the R45 will be included in the official release, you can test these items out in PUBG‘s test server as soon as December 7th.

Ah, 2017. The year everyone thought was going to be better than 2016 (which was a terrible year for everyone apparently?) but ended up being almost worse, at least for some.

But not everything about 2017 was bad – at least not in the gaming community.

Sure, Skyrim was remastered and released – again – and drama on the battle front – excuse me, Battlefront – made some lose their faith in the gaming community entirely, but some titles released this year renewed that lost faith and joy.

More specifically, some titles released this year for the PlayStation 4 deserve recognition of their own.

So sit down, buckle up, strap in, whatever you gotta do to prepare for this showcase of the 9 best PS4 games of 2017, because even if they don’t knock you off your feet, they’re gonna do something.

In an announcement that has surprised everybody, it has been revealed that Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds – most recently praised for his depiction of the comic book character Deadpool in the film of the same name – will be starring in the live-action Pokemon movie titled Detective Pikachu. He will be providing both his voice and motion capture for the character in this live-action adaptation of the Japan-exclusive Pokemon spin-off game.

Many other mainstream Hollywood actors were considered for the role of the titular Detective Pikachu, including Mark Wahlberg, Hugh Jackman, and Dwayne Johnson. Some time ago, a large number of Pokemon fans requested that Danny DeVito try out for the part, even leading to a fan petition with several thousand signatures, though DeVito apparently declined auditioning for the role.

For the sake of getting people up to speed, Great Detective Pikachu was a spin-off Pokemon game released in Japan for the 3DS eShop that revolved around the player working with a talking Pikachu detective to solve mysteries. Shortly after the game’s release in Japan, Legendary Entertainment acquired the rights to make a film based on the Detective Pikachu character, though not necessarily an adaptation of the game itself. Production of the film began in 2017, and here we are now, in a world where Ryan Reynolds will be playing Pikachu in the first live-action Pokemon movie, alongside Kathryn Newton of Big Little Lies fame.

It may also be of interest to some to know that one of the main writers assigned to the project is none other than Alex Hirsch, creator of the hit Disney mystery cartoon Gravity Falls. He will be joined by veteran writer for Marvel Studios Nicole Perlman, who was a writer for the first Guardians of the Galaxy and writing consultant on the first Thor as well as a writer for the upcoming Captain Marvel film.

The film will be directed by Rob Letterman, who was the director of the 2010 adaptation of Gulliver’s Travels starring Jack Black and was also an executive producer on the recent Dreamworks adaptation Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie among other things. Nothing is known about any plans for release regarding the Detective Pikachu movie, but with certain casting choices going public, we may be able to expect more news soon.

Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more news about Detective Pikachu as it develops.
