Watch trailer for the live-action promo prequel to ‘Ghost Recon: Wildlands’

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Trailer: War Within the Cartel Live Action Teaser [US]
Ubisoft has announced it is releasing a 30-minute, live-action promotional video for its upcoming open-world tactical game, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands: War Within the Cartel, was made in partnership with Amazon, and produced by Legion of Creatives.

The teaser video above, while absent of dialogue, demonstrates the high-stakes drama surrounding the drug cartels in Bolivia. Ubisoft secured serious talent for the production. Roberto Orci, co-creator of Fringe and executive producer on Star Trek, serves as executive producer on War Within the Cartel, and Avi Youabian (The Walking Dead) is tagged as its director. Rapper-turned-actor T.I. is featured in the trailer as a lead actor.

“Ubisoft is committed to providing top-tier entertainment across the board, in games, movies and other media,” said Tony Key, Ubisoft’s senior vice president of sales and marketing, in a press release today.

War Within the Cartel is a prequel to the upcoming game, giving viewers a sense of world they are about to enter. The Santa Blanca cartel, led by the tattoo-faced kingpin El Sueño, has transformed Bolivia into a narco-state. Opening with an unexpected attack on the cartel, the story follows El Sueño and other prominent Santa Blanca Cartel members as they try to determine who among their ranks has betrayed them. The events of the video directly lead up to the beginning of the game, where you play as a Special Forces unit tasked to take down the cartel.

Legion of Creatives sought the expertise of military and aviation specialists to make its depictions as authentic as possible.

The partnership between Ubisoft and Amazon also brings an Amazon exclusive Ghost Recon Wildlands: War Within the Cartel bundle, which includes the Gold Edition of the game, the season pass, a Santa Muerte figurine, and a steelbook case designed by Ken Taylor.

Ghost Recon Wildlands: War Within the Cartel will stream on Ubisoft’s Twitch channel on February 16, and will be available on Amazon Prime Video directly after it airs.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 7.

The Sims 5: release date speculation, trailers, gameplay, and more
sims 4 for rent expansion pack shared living the 6

It's time to brush up on your Simlish if it's rusty because the long-awaited The Sims 5, aka Project Rene, is officially on the way. This has been the longest gap between main entries since the series began, and while we did get tons of expansions for The Sims 4 to hold us over, plus the change to it becoming free to play, we're more than ready for a new entry. Each time a new game in the franchise comes out, die-hard fans always need to have a bit of skepticism about what features will be there -- both new and returning. Again, the last entry eventually got to a great spot, but it certainly wasn't there at launch. We can't answer all your questions yet, but here's everything we know about The Sims 5.
Release date speculation

Still referred to by the code name Project Rene, The Sims 5 (which we will call it until the official title is revealed) does not have a release window as of now. Developer Maxis did state it was working on it in October 2022 at the Behind the Sims Summit presentation. The only clue we got there was this statement from Lyndsay Pearson, franchise creative vice president: "Over the next couple of years, we'll continue sharing updates with all of you on Project Rene."

GTA 5 cheats: codes and phone numbers PS4, PS5, Xbox, and PC
The main characters of Grand Theft Auto V stand side-by-side.

A slam-dunk of a game for the talented developers at Rockstar, Grand Theft Auto V has been out for several years now, but it’s still an extremely popular title. We’re also guessing there’s some renewed interest in the game because the world knows we’re getting a Grand Theft Auto VI in the somewhat-near future. If you’ve ever played a GTA game, you’ll know the going can get a little tough from time to time. This is why it’s nice to live in a world with cheat codes. 

Whether you just want to have a ton of fun with unlimited health and ammunition, or you’re seriously struggling with a certain section of the game, we’ve rounded up all the cheat codes you’ll need to know for GTA V, for platforms including PS4, PS5, Xbox, and PC.
How to use GTA 5 cheats
There are a few ways to enter GTA 5 cheat codes. The first and easiest is to use your cellphone. You can open your cellphone by pressing Up on the D-pad. From there, enter the corresponding number, and the cheat will fire. You can also classically input cheats by following a specific button combination. The combinations are the same across PlayStation and Xbox, but we've split them up to account for their different button-naming conventions, so it should feel more natural reading and entering them.

How to fix ‘servers at capacity’ error in Helldivers 2
A Helldivers 2 player fires a laser canon.

Helldivers 2 is a ton of fun to play, but the game isn’t without its small list of issues. One of these maladies is an error code that reads “servers at capacity.” If you’ve ever seen this pop-up window, you’ll know just how frustrating it can be to get around. But as far as fixes go, there's not much one can do when it comes to getting around this roadblock.
Can you fix the servers at capacity error?

Unfortunately, this is one error in Helldivers 2 that you have no power over. This issue falls on the game being just too popular for the game's servers to keep up with. A statement posted by developer Arrowhead in its official Discord said: "Our team is working around the clock to solve these issues. While we've been able to mitigate some of the causes, we are still struggling to keep up with the scaling that is needed to accommodate all our Helldivers. Therefore, we’ve had to cap our concurrent players to around 450,000 to further improve server stability. We will continue to work with our partners to get the ceiling raised.”
