Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Is Coming After Director Finishes The Suicide Squad

Marvel Studios shared a lot of its Phase 4 plans this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, including The Eternals, a Doctor Strange sequel, a new Thor movie, and more, but the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise was nowhere to be seen.

Cyberpunk 2077's Hardcore Difficulty Mode Turns Off The UI

Like The Witcher 3 and CD Projekt Red's other games, Cyberpunk 2077 will have multiple difficulty settings. One of them is Hardcore, and it sounds intense.

CD Projekt Red's Alvin Liu told wccftech that Cyberpunk 2077's Hardcore mode turns off the UI. "That will be a real challenge for a lot of players," Liu said.

On the other end, Cyberpunk 2077 will have difficulty options that cater to players who are less familiar with shooter games. Ensuring that Cyberpunk 2077 accommodates those players...
