Naughty Dog will hold a livestream event today, December 13, to reveal more gameplay from Uncharted 4's upcoming co-op mode, Survival, and also take the lid off new multiplayer maps and other fresh content.
The stream starts at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET, and you can watch it in its entirety through the Twitch embed below. We'll update this post with details from the stream as it unfolds.
We already know a lot about Uncharted 4's Survival mode (read more about it here), but Naughty Dog hasn't said much about what to expect in terms of new multiplayer content. The developer teased that players can expect new maps and weapons, as well as a new mode.
Like all other Uncharted 4 multiplayer expansions, Survival and the new maps will be completely free when they launch this week. And more content is coming to the game down the road. Check out the roadmap below to learn more about what to expect in the future.

Capcom has released a creepy new TV spot for upcoming horror game Resident Evil 7. The 30-second video uses the creepy "Aunt Rhody" song and gives viewers a peek inside the creepy home where the game is set. We also see the Baker family--they don't look very welcoming. Check it out:
In other Resident Evil 7 news, Capcom said this week that it hopes the game will sell 4 million copies on its first day.
Resident Evil 7 launches on January 24, 2017 for all platforms. That's just a few days before the new movie, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, comes out in theaters on January 27. You can watch the latest Final Chapter trailer here.

Nintendo has announced when it will fully reveal its Switch console. You'll get a proper look at the new platform on January 12 at 8 PM PST / 11 PM EST--that's 4 AM on January 13 for those in the UK. The event will be livestreamed on Nintendo's website.
It's currently unclear how long the stream will last, though Nintendo's regular Direct streams typically reach around 45 minutes in length.
It's likely we'll get a look at some of the system's launch titles. So far, Lego City Undercover and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are among the games confirmed to be coming to Switch at some point, though release dates are as yet unconfirmed.
Nintendo first unveiled the Switch in October, before teasing that more details would be revealed soon. We may also discover the system's price tag and full specs, as well as a release date; so far, we only know that the Switch will launch in March 2017.

Fox has released another clip from the upcoming Assassin's Creed film. This latest one shows Michael Fassbender's 15th century Spain character, Aguilar, in a thrilling action sequence that culminates with one of the franchise's trademark "Leap of Faith" jumps. Check out the clip below.
During a Q&A on Monday, Fassbender said he and co-star Ariane Labed performed about 95 percent of their own stunts. He did not perform this Leap of Faith, however, as that was handled by stuntman Damien Walters. He actually jumped from 120 feet in the air into a crashpad with no ropes or harnesses.
Fassbender has spoken about the importance of physical stunts and on-location shooting; Assassin's Creed won't lean on CGI as much as other films, he says.
"I really think it's going to be a milestone movie," he said. "It's going to be the very first time that a video game studio creative works with movie creatives altogether to share a vision and give them the tool to express themselves; rather than have an adaptation. There's going to be a 'before and after Assassin's Creed movie' for sure."
Assassin's Creed opens on December 21. It also stars Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Brendan Gleeson. The movie was directed by Macbeth's Justin Kurzel.

The success of Deadpool proved that an R-rated superhero film could find a huge audience. The upcoming Wolverine movie Logan will also carry the restricted rating, but it has now been revealed that star Hugh Jackman had to take a smaller salary to make it happen.
AICN writer Eric Vespe spoke to Logan director James Mangold, who told him "Hugh Jackman took a salary cut because he wanted to do an R-rated movie." Although Deadpool was a massive hit, it was made on a far smaller budget than many superhero movies, meaning that an R rating was much less of a risk for Fox. It has been reported that Jackman was paid as much as $20 million for the last two Wolverine movies, which carried PG-13 ratings.
The movie's recent trailer and clips certainly suggest that the film is sitting comfortably within an R. The notes contained in a page of script that Mangold tweeted in October hinted at something more hard-hitting than the previous Wolverine movies. "If you're on the make for a hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying, CG f**kathon, this ain't your movie," they state. "In this flick, people will get hurt or killed when s**t falls on them."
Logan also stars Patrick Stewart, Stephen Merchant, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Boyd Holbrook, and Richard E. Grant. It hits theaters on March 3, 2017.
