An online ad shows a January 28 release date for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. The game is set for release on PS4 and Xbox One according to the VGX ad, which is close to what Amazon Italy posted back in November – January 24 which is likely the EU release date. The pack includes all DLC released for the Crystal Dynamics adventure, and comes with an art book and premium packaging. Square Enix said news on the collection would be released in early December, so expect news on this tonight during the VGX Awards. Thanks, AGB.

Like many of us suspected, the “Fallout 4 teaser site” was a big fat fake. It was updated last night with a video of the Tunnel Snakes from Fallout 3, dancing around in that meme video going on about how they rule and such. There was also a “hidden page” showing a door that when opened says “fuck you” which was pulled from Reddit. Nice. Supposedly it was created by a member of the Fallout community who runs a Fallout Facebook page who got bored, and decided to create the fake site,according to IncGamers. That’s all you really need to know. That and Bethesda finally spoke up last night on Twitter saying: “If you don’t hear it through an official channel like this, assume all rumors and speculation are false.” Thanks, Gumpy.

There have been no whispers suggesting such a thing is on the way, but these things can move fast when they get started; the Need for Speed film seems to have rocketed into existence.
