With today's launch of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, 505 Games released a new trailer showing off the game, along with some more details and hints on the game's DLC.

The trailer boasts robust crafting and character customization options and retro-styled challenges, along with 13 upcoming pieces of DLC, all of which will be free. Among these features are a classic mode, new game +, boss-rush mode, a roguelike dungeon, speedrun mode, three new characters, co-op, versus mode, online play, a "nightmare" difficulty, plus more.

The trailer goes on to show an uncomfortably beefed-up Shovel Knight mode in the game, using his signature shovel to metaphorically dig his enemies' graves.

Perhaps most intriguingly, however, a very familiar tune plays after the screen fades to black. The melody is unmistakably from Child of Light, but what exactly this means beyond a hinted crossover with the game is unclear.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with the Switch version launching next week on June 25. For more on the game, read about the game's full DLC plans, or look at our preview on one of its upcoming characters!

The Division 2 Adds The 'Gunner' Specialization In Today's Update

Game Informer News Feed - Tue, 06/18/2019 - 18:23
Publisher: Ubisoft Developer: Ubisoft Massive Release: March 15, 2019 Rating: Not rated Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

In today's update for Tom Clancy's The Division 2, players can gain access to the new "gunner" specialization, which comes with the new rapid-fire minigun, the "banshee" skill, and the riot-foam grenade.

The minigun gives players a temporary boost in defense when in use, while raining down bullets upon targets for a short period of time. The "banshee" signature skill causes confusion for enemies – even when under cover – and the riot-foam grenade temporarily immobilizes opponents, leaving them open to attacks.

The specialization is free, but those without the year one pass will need to complete five in-game challenges to unlock it. Those with the pass will have instant access to the specialization, but can still complete the challenges for additional cosmetic items.

The Division 2 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and is coming to Google Stadia. For more on the game's future, catch up on where it's headed next, or read our review!

Queen Elizabeth's Former Villa in Malta Is for Sale

Travel and Leisure - Tue, 06/18/2019 - 17:29
<p>If you’ve ever dreamed of living just like <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-tips/celebrity-travel/how-queen-elizabeth-travels" target="_blank">Queen Elizabeth</a>, now’s your chance. All you need is $6.7 million to do it.</p><p>The Queen’s one-time villa, <a href="https://www.homesofquality.com.mt/en/property/914956/Gwardamangia-Villa" target="_blank">Villa Guardamangia</a>, located in Malta, is officially for sale. According to <a href="https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/06/12/queens-former-malta-home-villa-guardamangia-sale-for5-million/" target="_blank"><em>The Telegraph</em></a>, the palazzo-style mansion nestled in the outskirts of the Maltese capital Valletta, served as an official royal residence immediately after Elizabeth’s marriage to Prince Phillip.</p><img alt="Villa Guardamangia "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1560350947/villa-guardamangia-MALTAHOME0619.jpg?itok=wDghZibz"><p>At the time, <em>The Telegraph</em> explained, the then-princess was not only a senior member of the royal family but also a Navy wife to her new husband. So, she lived in <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-guide/malta" target="_blank">Malta</a> on and off from 1949 and 1951 while Philip served in the Royal Navy Mediterranean Fleet. It was a place the Queen herself remembered fondly during a trip to Malta in 2015.</p><p>"Visiting Malta is always very special for me,” she <a href="https://www.marieclaire.com/celebrity/a27945899/queen-elizabeth-malta-villa-guardamangia-for-sale/" target="_blank">said</a>. “I remember happy days here with Prince Philip when we were first married.”</p><p>During the trip, the former Maltese president Marie Louise Coleiro presented her and the Duke of Edinburgh with a watercolor of their one-time villa, <em>The Telegraph</em> noted.</p><p>However, since the couple moved out the mansion reportedly fell into disrepair. But, that doesn’t mean it’s not worth its hefty price tag.</p><p>The home, built in 1900 still comes with six bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a grand "sala nobile" living room. It also has various guest quarters and servant quarters. The property, <em>The Telegraph</em> added, has "great historical value" according to estate agents Homes of Quality. It also comes with stunning ocean views over Marsamxett Harbor.</p><p>The villa’s listing also noted the home’s spacious interior rooms along with its high ceilings. It added, “The main house is further complemented with stables, various guest/servant quarters, cellars, shelter etc. The property is just crying out for a great conversion and will make a superb residence or possibly a commercial venue.”</p><p>If you’re up for a little renovation work this home, and its history, can be yours. All you need to do is <a href="https://www.homesofquality.com.mt/en/property/914956/Gwardamangia-Villa" target="_blank">bid on it here</a>. </p>
