Explore Hyrule with a friend thanks to this Breath of the Wild splitscreen mod

The mod enters a beta phase later this week. Breath of the Wild is a pretty lonely game, but an upcoming splitscreen multiplayer mod makes it a little bit less so. The sequel to Breath of the Wild, whatever it might be called, is coming out in spring 2023 (hopefully). That’s still about a year away, so all we have is the original game to keep us busy. But playing games by yourself can be a bit solitary in these modern times. Which is where modder Kirbymimi steps in to provide a splitscreen multiplayer mod that is entering into beta…

Where To Watch Summer Game Fest’s Big Opening Event

With E3 2022 canceled, there’s a vacuum at the center of the video game marketing season.

But the host, Geoff Keighley, recently saw fit to temper expectations ahead of the show, saying that it won’t be flush with the “world premieres” for which his events have become known. This post was originally published on June 6, 2022.Now in its third year, Summer Game Fest is both a singular event (a showcase featuring trailers from a wide range of video game publishers)…

Nintendo Direct announced for later this week, showing off games launching in 2022

The next Nintendo Direct airs on February 9 and promises game announcements from Nintendo and other publishers, too. Nintendo has revealed the next Nintendo Direct livestream, which will air on February 10, 2022.

Nintendo shared the news about an upcoming Direct today on social media, announcing that the show will kick off at 2pm PT, 5pm ET and 10pm UK, and run for roughly…

The Catch-Up: What Team VG247 played in the holidays

What’s that? Work? It’s January already? Excuse the bleary eyes, and the inability to get up when the alarm goes off. We’re still in Christmas mode. As we bed back in to working life bringing you all the hot video game coverage and all that, we thought we’d take a few moments to scoot around the team (except for Sherif, who is still off, the lucky sod) and let you all know what we’ve been playing over the holidays. What games did you play during the break? Sound off in the comments…! Alex Donaldson, Assistant Editor I have to be…

Don’t miss out on pre-ordering these Breath of the Wild statues from First 4 Figures

By Elizabeth Henges 23 April 2021 18:52 GMT I’ve always love figurines, though I’ve never bought any myself. First 4 Figures are some of the best figurine makers around, and right now, you can pre-order them now.Currently, there are four First 4 Figures Zelda statues you can pick up! The two statues due out in May are of Link and Zelda, respectively. Link gets a dynamic pose with the bow for this statue, while Zelda is a bit more static pose. The neat thing about both of these statues is the LED lights, highlighting certain parts of each statue in…

All you need to do is pulling out…
