When video game No Man’s Sky first released on August 9, 2016, many of the core features that developers had promised players were missing. At the time, the game was losing users by the thousands, but English indie studio Hello Games worked tirelessly and offered massive, free patches one after another to make it into the very fully functioning game it is today.

With all of the new updates, players are able to do things they never would have dreamed of at launch, including creating full “rave planets.”

Many games like Minecraft, Fortnite, and Roblox are also getting in on the virtual rave craze these days, but No Man’s Sky is the only one that offers both a fully customizable environment as well as AAA graphics.

Hello Games added a fully functional synthesizer to the game late last year, allowing players to create unique music that can be heard by … Read more

Mads Mikkelsen will replace Johnny Depp as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3, it has been confirmed.

Depp, who portrayed the villainous character in the first two Fantastic Beasts movies, was asked by Warner Bros to resign from the role earlier this month after he lost a libel trial related to domestic abuse allegations by his ex-wife, Amber Heard.

It was later reported that Mikkelsen (Hannibal and Casino Royale) was in “early talks” to step in for the next film, which is set for release on July 15, 2022.

Mikkelsen will appear alongside returning stars including Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, … Read more

KSHMR is teasing his upcoming album with a visual sneak peek and live countdown — both of which point to January 15, 2021.

In preparation for his next big release, KSHMR has also wiped his Instagram account clean, leaving only album art and due date. It’s obvious the producer is putting great emphasis on the album and we’re expecting greatness in return.

In 2016, KSHMR released his epic 12-track body of work, The Lion Across the Field. At the time, it was considered an EP release, which would make his upcoming album also his commercial debut.

Approximately 51 days and 10 hours remain until it’s out. Let’s hope his music is able to grace the main stage next year as festivals (hopefully) return!

More info on KSHMR and the new album here.
