    The Callisto Protocol‘s season pass will include extra death animations for the protagonist Jacob and the enemies he faces, it’s been confirmed. The details of the season pass were recently added to the game’s Steam Page, listing everything it offers.

    Fixating on player counts and ‘dead games’ is making gaming worse

Liverpool would go on to beat Wolves at Anfield so Pep Guardiola needed some inspiration or the title would fall into Jurgen Klopp’s hands. During the break, Guardiola turned to his bench. Raheem Sterling was there, so too Ilkay Gundogan and Jack Grealish. But it was Oleksandr Zinchenko who was picked, coming on for makeshift centre-back Fernandinho in a reshuffle of City’s defence.
