The game also has two special editions, the Collector’s Edition and Jotnar Edition. The Collector’s Edition includes a digital copy of the game, steelbook case, two wooden toy carvings of the Huldra Brothers, a Dwarven dice set, and a 16-inch replica of Thor’s Mjolnir. It also comes with some digital items, such as the Darkdale armor, blade handles, an axe grip for Kratos, and matching Darkdale attire for Atreus. A digital soundtrack, artbook, avatar set, and PS4 theme are provided as well.

The Jotnar Edition is similar but includes a few additional goodies, such as a vinyl record of the game’s music by Bear McCreary, a pin set, a Draupnir Ring, Brok’s dice set, and Yggdrasil cloth map. It also contains the digital voucher for the game, steelbook case, the two wooden toy carvings, and the Mjolnir Replica, as well as the same digital items from the Collector’s Edition. Both editions will go on sale starting July 15.

Thor’s voice actor, Ryan Hurst, and art director Rafael Grassetti discussed the contents of the editions in a video.

You can play as Resident Evil 4’s Leon Kennedy in Tekken 8 … sort of
Leon Kennedy in Tekken 8

Tekken 8 has only been out for a few days, but folks on the internet have already found a way to make some incredibly convincing recreations of some of their favorite characters from other properties. Perhaps one of the most impressive seen so far is a version of Leon Kennedy that closely resembles his appearance in the recent Resident Evil 4 remake, giving players an opportunity to enter the King of Iron Fist Tournament as a zombie-slaying brawler ... well, sort of.

As shown by YouTube creator Dan Allen Gaming, it's entirely possible to replicate Leon Kennedy's look to quite a shocking level using Tekken 8's detailed character customization features. Everything from his iconic leather bomber jacket to his quintessential '90s haircut is nailed perfectly here by using popular fighter Lars as a base for the customization due to his similarity to Leon in frame and stature.

The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered: No Return tips and tricks for beginners
Tommy in The Last of Us 2 Remastered

The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered's campaign mostly just features visual upgrades over the PlayStation 4 original, but its new No Return mode provides players with a roguelike experience within the same world. This tense and challenging experience requires equal parts patience, strategy, and quick reflexes if you want to survive till the very end. In this guide, we'll share some things you'll want to keep in mind while tackling No Return.
Pick the right character for you
No Return features various characters from The Last of Us Part 2, each sporting unique initial loadouts, upgrade paths, and traits that can make a massive difference in your run. Picking one that suits the way you like to approach combat is extremely important, as certain characters will excel at some encounter types more than others.

For instance, Abby gets instant access to the Melee Upgrade Recipe and heals after killing an enemy with a melee attack, whereas Ellie gains extra supplements and gets immediate access to the Molotov Recipe for burning foes alive. Later, you can even unlock Yara, who will always bring along Lev as a sidekick to help you kill enemies in every encounter, though she sacrifices any other particularly unique extras as a result. As you can see, there's a character for every player, and a bit of trial and error should reveal which one works best for you.

Best Amulet Enchantments and Relics in God of War Ragnarok: Valhalla
Kratos looks at the Leviathan Axe.

No matter how hard he tries, sometimes Kratos just can't avoid a fight. With the God of War Ragnarok: Valhalla DLC, there's almost nothing but fighting in this new roguelike mode, which is great for us who want more ways to engage with the game's brutally satisfying combat.

This mode's main difference is how you construct your build as you go through each run rather than pick a favorite and master it like in the main game. Aside from your base stats, you will be picking up various Amulet Enhancements and Relics through Glyph chests that give you different buffs and abilities. Many will be familiar if you've played the story; however, the challenges you face in Valhalla require different builds than normal.
