While we still know very little about the upcoming game, a few details have trickled out thanks to a recent meet and greet event in Japan. Hit the jump for more!

With every new month, a new set of free games is released for the proud owners of Xbox Live Gold subscriptions.

Going gold is a significant milestone in every video game's development. It officially means that the game is ready to ship. Ubisoft decided to celebrate this specific occasion for Watch Dogs 2 with a fantastically silly and stylistic gif. According to a recent tweet from the Watch Dogs 2 official twitter page, the hacking simulator is officially ready to be in the hands of consumers. The game itself actually has a lot riding on it after the poor reception of its predecessor, but we still have a few more weeks to wait to see if it redeems its name, as it releases on November 15th.

Sometimes you just want to play both an Action RPG and a First Person Shooter at the same time. In those cases, there is always Borderlands. The quirky shooter has made waves over the last few years with its humorous plot lines and almost literal "bazillion guns" tagline. Unbeknownst to pretty much everyone, The Handsome Collection, a collection of all three titles and their respective DLC, is actually free on Xbox Live right now, albeit for a very limited time.

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, an animated film that runs parallel to the early events of Final Fantasy XV, released last month to a relatively positive reaction from fans, extolling the film as an absolute visual spectacle. For an animated film, that honor is due to the hard work of its animators. One group that worked on the film, Digic Pictures, is actually quite renowned for their skills in trailer production for games, having previously worked on the Assassin's Creed series. Now, Digic Pictures has returned to the world of Final Fantasy XV with a new trailer titled "Omen."

The long-running Resident Evil franchise has become increasingly more action-focused with each new main series release in recent years, but Capcom is bringing the series back to its horror roots with Resident Evil VII: Biohazard. The much-hyped game is set to launch on January 24th, and Capcom expects it to be a big hit in its first two months. The company's second quarter earnings release indicates that Capcom is projecting 4 million sales for Resident Evil VII by the end of the fiscal year, or March 31st, 2017. Will it hit that lofty target?

Square Enix has been working on Final Fantasy XV (in one form or another) for a decade now, but the wait is almost over. The highly-anticipated RPG was originally slated to release on September 30th, but a recent delay pushed its street date back to November 29th. There's still over a month to go until launch day, but we won't likely be seeing any more delays, as the official Twitter account for the game has announced that it has officially gone gold, meaning development has wrapped up. Will you be picking it up next month?

A little over two months ago, Square Enix revealed some information on Final Fantasy XV's DLC plans. Basically, the game will have six available DLC packs to purchase; two will be largely cosmetic additions to the game, while three will provide extra quests that players can partake in while controlling the other three members of Noctis' party. However, there was something missing: the sixth DLC pack. Today, we finally know what it is going to be, and it is pretty cool. The final DLC for Final Fantasy XV will be a four player online Co-Op mode.

Earlier this year, we reported that the player base for the not-so-popular team shooter Evolve had grown exponentially after updating into its free-to-play version, Evolve Stage 2. It had gained over one million users from a paltry few hundred in just a matter of days. Unfortunately, it seems the dream is over as Turtle Rock Studios recently announced that they are no longer supporting their now-very-popular game. As a given, the console version of Evolve Stage 2 has also been canceled.

Earlier this month, Square Enix revealed that Moogles will serve a special purpose within the world of Final Fantasy XV. That special purpose was a mystery at the time, only to be revealed if their Final Fantasy twitter page received enough followers. Fortunately, the twitter page finally hit the required number of followers, so we have received a fancy new trailer detailing the Moogle doll's purpose. As it turns out, Moogles are actually used as lures in battle.
