According to a post on the Mojang blog, Minecraft fans can expect a new type of entry in the series in the form of a novel penned by post-apocalyptic aficionado Max Brooks.
Best known as the author behind The Zombie Survival Guide, and later, the incredibly popular World War Z, Brooks will be the first author to tackle Minecraft in novel form. According to Mojang brand director Lydia Winters, Brooks was a solid choice to helm the first entry in a potential series of books.
The fictional Fink Manufacturing, as seen in BioShock Infinite, recently put out a call for fans to submit their very own designs for the games’ power-up-inducing Vigor bottles. As seen on the 2K Games Blog, one submission from BioShock fan Ernesto Moreno was so great, 2K decided to go ahead and actually make it into a real-world bottle.
Moreno tweeted his design for “Parasite”–featuring a pitch-perfect take on a spider sinking its fangs into a blood-red bottle–back in August.
EA and developer DICE have detailed the Play First Trial for Battlefield 1, an early access program that lets EA Access and Origin Access members play up to ten in-game hours of the WWI shooter starting on October 13.
The Play First Trial will give members access to five maps, St. Quentin Scar, Amiens, Sinai Desert, Fao Fortress and Suez, which will all be playable in the Conquest, Rush, Operations, and Domination game modes. The remaining maps will open up on October 18 alongside the release of the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition and are playable unless the allotted 10 hours have already been used.
Players will also get to try the single-player missions Storm of Steel and Through Mud and Blood. Additionally, all player progress from the trial carries over to the full game.

Black Dragon Press is working with The Witness lead creator Jonathan Blow to make a print of one of the mysterious statues from the game.
Below you can see the print with and without the glow in the dark paint on the puzzle cables.
The 6 color screen print, which measures 18×24 inches, was illustrated by UK artist George Bletsis and approved by Jonathan Blow. The prints will be available for pre-order for 72 hours at £30 (approximately $39 USD) on Black Dragon Press’ website. The price of the print will go up to £40 (approximately $52 USD) at its standard release and will be available in limited quantities. Each print will be hand-numbered and the number of prints will depend on how many orders are received in the initial order window, plus “a small handful” of extras.
