UK actor Rupert Friend (best known for his role as CIA Agent Peter Quinn in TV drama Homeland) is the latest thespian to wear the iconic barcode-clad bald head and business attire, replacing the late Paul Walker, who had originally been cast in the role. Agent 47 was previously played by Timothy Olyphant (Justified, Deadwood) some seven years ago in the studio's first attempt at a film adaptation.
Polygon has gotten a hold of a couple of stills of Friend wearing his Hitman garb and akimbo Silver Ballers, and some other less interesting information about the supporting characters played by Zachary Quinto (Star Trek Into Darkness, Heroes) and Hannah Ware (Betrayal).
Hitman: Agent 47 is due in theatres on Feb 27 2015.

Yep, It's true. The Big Damn Heroes have joined Firefly Online!Given that the game is in development by a studio only known for a handful of casual mobile games, we'd find this news hard to believe if Mal Reynolds himself, Nathan Fillion, hadn't made an appearance at the end of the first "gameplay" trailer. See for yourself below.
The announcement also suggests that the targeted release window for Firefly Online has been pushed back to Spring 2015 (Southern Hemisphere Autumn 2015).

According to VG 247 the video has been linked to a recent trademark filing by publisher and BioWare parent company EA for something named "Shadow Realms", which seems to suggest a full reveal shouldn't be too far away -- perhaps the 2014 GamesCom expo in Cologne in a few weeks time.
Whatever it is, it's certainly a departure from the usual themes of BioWare games, which have traditionally been straight up sci-fi and medieval fantasy.

Not a lot of gameplay can be gleaned from this trailer apart from a few seconds of combat and a look at a few of the enemy types. Still, the trailer certainly sets the tone for what's to come and eagerly puts me on the hype train.
In addition to the trailer, new screens show Harkyn as he explores the uninviting world he must survive in. These, as well as a concept art piece showing the infiltrator enemy type, can be viewed in the image gallery below. Lords of the Fallen will be consequently falling onto PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One come October 28th.

An update will introduce the Black Market, where you can get access to additional customisation options for your Titan alongside the game-changing Burn Cards. The Burn Cards will be sold in packs, each focused on a specific theme to enable you to choose what type you need. XP boost, Pilot and Titan advantages are all mentioned, with the hope being this change will enable you to pick cards that suit your play style.
In terms of how you'll earn credits to buy these packs, fulfilling a number of different criteria will see you awarded with money to spend. Winning a match, completing a match and having your first victory of the day will all see you pick up points, as will completing daily challenges and selling Burn Cards you don't want. Additionally, once you hit level 50 a percentage of earned XP will be converted to credits.
The Black Market will be available once you hit level 11 and have opened the Burn Card menu. According to Respawn this is just the first step to a variety of new items in the future. Those worried that this may lead to a slipper slope, never fear. Designer David Shaver promised the studio will never introduce them and the only way to obtain credits will be by playing the game.

"The original female Tauren had a lot of issues with too-angular geometry and stretched-out textures," reads the blog post on the official site. "Itâs not her faultâitâs just what we had available to us at the time. Our new process has allowed us to add a lot of detail to her hair, fur, horns, and hooves, to build a far more detailed and expressive face, and to add a lot of definition to her musculature (while retaining her shape and silhouette)."
It's quite easy to see the staggering differences in the pictures below, and great effort has gone into re-producing as much of the original 2004 model as possible. What are your thoughts on the remodels so far? Let us know in the comments below!
In related Warcraft news, Legendary Pictures has unveiled the official logo for the upcoming Warcraft film, due for release in 2016. The logo was debuted at Legendaryâs Comic-Con booth, and as you can expect has caused a number of discussions to pop up.
Some fans of the Warcraft franchise have already voiced their dissatisfaction with the design of the logo, stating that it strays too far from Warcraftâs typically untampered style, and instead resembles the sci-fi StarCraftâs logo which has had a similar blue metallic texture since the late 90s. See for yourself in the image below, and again let us know your thoughts in the comments! As an added bonus, World of Warcraft Community Manager Bashiok has posted a couple images of props from the movie that are featured in Legendaryâs booth, which you can find over here.
Update: It seems Blizzard has also pushed out the Horde-themed Chopper bike mount for players to gain, completely free of charge. Simply logging in to the game between now and September 30, 2014 will automatically have their account flagged to receive the Horde chopper upon the release of the upcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion.

There are two versions of Gods Will Be Watching available; a standard edition ($9.99) and a collectorâs edition ($19.99) which includes the original soundtrack, a digital art book, and a prologue-digital comic that serves as the prologue to the events of the game.
The game is all about decisions such as "hostage situations and wilderness survival to biological weapon prevention and agonizing torture scenarios." Ultimately, players will need to choose between saving their own team or preventing genocide.
Devolver's fictitious CFO Fork Parker commented in a press release that, âMy usual video game strategy of shooting everyone I encounter in the face has proven to be impractical in Gods Will Be Watching. Shooting people in the knee works though. So thatâs nice.â
