In celebration of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes shipping 1 million copies, Konami and Kojima are going to release the previously platform-exclusive content to all systems. On May 1, all owners of the game will be able to download and play the missions Déjà vu and Jamais Vu for free.

The Déjà vu mission was originally released on PlayStation platforms only, and is referred to as a “throwback” mission. The content allows users to play as the pixilated Solid Snake from the PSone title, Metal Gear Solid, and introduces missions taken from that game. Success comes through recreating key scenes from the original MGS, and players are rewarded with flashbacks.

The second piece of content, Jamais Vu, was released as an Xbox platform exclusive, and relates to the second video game Hideo Kojima wrote and directed, Snatcher. The missions introduce “bioroids” that invade Camp Omega and kill anything they come in to contact with. Snake is replaced in this mission by the cyborg ninja Raiden, who comes packing heavy weapons rather than his sword.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is available both on physical media, and as a digital download. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions cost $29.99, while the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version run $19.99.

The best accessories in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth
Tifa and Aerith

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is filled with baddies to take out, so you'll need to be as prepared as possible when it's time to face off against them. As such, you'll be updating your equipment frequently throughout your adventure to apply upgraded pieces of gear. In addition to weapons and bangles, you can equip each character with a single accessory to customize their skill set in battle, and it's worth swapping these out occasionally depending on the upcoming fight.

Though the best accessory for each character will largely depend on how you've built them and what role you have them playing in your party, there are still some accessories that we feel are generally useful and tend to be worth keeping around to make battles go more smoothly.

Remnant 2 gets a big Steam discount alongside crossplay update
Three characters shoot at a boss in Remnant 2.

Remnant 2, one of the best multiplayer games of 2023, just received an update that added crossplay and is now available at a discounted price of $30 on Steam for a limited time.

Released in July 2023, Remnant 2 is a co-op third-person looter shooter with surprisingly great boss fights. Campaigns are made up of procedurally generated worlds and narrative moments pulled together from a wider pool, making each replay of Remnant 2 feel unique. It's very fun on your own, but most enjoyable with friends as it supports up to three players in co-op. Until now, multiplayer has been locked to individual platforms.

PSA: Don’t burn yourself out on Final Fantasy VII Rebirth’s open-world activities
Cloud from FFVII

I'm normally a completionist when it comes to games, but I wish I had told myself to push that mindset to the side before I started Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

I get the desire to do it all, I really do. In the critically acclaimed sequel, we're finally let loose outside of Midgar. Square Enix has laid a huge, lush set of biomes to stretch our legs in after being stuck in the cramped hallways and tunnels of the drab city. Despite most of the world activities in Rebirth being standard open-world fare (activating towers, scanning points of interest, and hunting down specific monsters), there's an undeniable novelty to doing it with Cloud and the rest of Avalanche. What I wish I had known before starting was just how easy it was to burn out on that feeling.
