Sega Reveals New Sonic Animated Web Short – “Rise of The Wisps”

To celebrate the upcoming launch of Sonic Colors: Ultimate, Sega has released the first episode of a new two-part animated web series, Rise of the Wisps, introducing fans to the new Jade Wisp and welcoming the return of Sonic, Tails and the notorious Dr. Eggman from the Sonic Colors universe.

In today’s episode, Sonic and Tails are joined by a lone Jade Wisp, who narrowly escapes the deceptively charming Sweet Mountain ride at Dr. Eggman’s Incredible Interstellar Amusement Park. Together, Sonic, Tails and their new companion, must band together to uncover Dr. Eggman’s evil plot to harness the Wisps’ powers and take over the universe.

The “Rise of the Wisps” animated series continues the celebration of Sonic’s 30th Anniversary in preparation for the release of Sonic Colors: Ultimate, a remaster of the 2010 Wii platformer, Sonic Colors, coming both digitally and physically to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on September 7th, with a digital-only release on PC via the Epic Games Store.

Call of Duty: Vanguard Reveal – Call of Duty: Warzone Update Day 2

The Call of Duty: Warzone in-game reveal of Call of Duty: Vanguard kicks off tomorrow at 1:30pm ET / 10:30am PT, but those who jump in between an hour early will receive Double Player XP, Double Weapon XP, and Double Battle Pass XP.

In mere hours from now, the biggest battle Verdansk has ever seen will take place. Your target is a heavily armored train, your primary objectives are to plant TNT charges in the tunnel by the Verdansk Hospital. If all goes well, your squad will be greatly rewarded for your efforts.

HQ has also provided the following intel, although this may pertain to the Operator behind the screen rather than the one in the field: there will be a “playlist update” at approximately 1:30pm ET / 10:30am PT – do not quit out of Warzone if you are playing prior to this update, as it will happen in real time and not require a re-launch of the game. Just keep checking the Play tab for a live update that will bring about the start of the Battle.
