Cyberpunk 2077 Funko Pops Are On The Way

Funko revealed the first wave of Cyberpunk 2077 Pops at this year's London Toy Fair. Unlike McFarlane Toys' recent announcement of Cyberpunk action figures which just consists of a male version of main character V, Funko is creating both male and female figures. You'll also be able to purchase two different versions of Johnny Silverhand: one with dual pistols and sunglasses, and the other calmly sitting on one knee.

All four of these Pops are expected to hit store shelves on April 16, which was at one time the release date for the Cyberpunk 2077 video game. After a delay, it now has a release date of September 17 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. You can view all of the Pops below:

Dying Light 2 Delayed

Polish developer Techland has delayed Dying Light 2 (PS4, Xbox One, PC) from its original spring 2020 release goal, and the studio says it will announce more on this front in “the coming months.”

In a letter to the community, CEO Paweł Marchewka says Techland needs “more development time to fulfill our vision,” noting that the game is the studio's biggest to date.

Given the size of Dying Light 2 – the world is four-times as large as the first – it's understandable that more time might be needed to bring it to life. Player choice and the sheer number of things to do are large components of the title as well, making it understandable that more time might be needed to bring it to life.

Dying Light 2 is among several recently delayed games, including Cyberpunk 2077, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Iron Man VR, and Avengers.

Overwatch’s Lunar New Year Event Delivers A Sombra Skin With Six Different Masks

Overwatch is ringing in the new year with new face-changing technology. Kicking off today and running until February 6, players can earn new skins that are themed to the Lunar New Year, which just happens to be the Year of the Rat.

The skin players will likely want the most is Face-Changing Sombra, which is based on “bian lian,” an art form from traditional Chinese opera. “Bian lian” translates to “change face.” That's exactly what Sombra can do. Using what a Blizzard calls a “digital Sombra glitch,” her mask will switch between six different styles, meaning she can wear six different masks in a match. The rub: You may not be able to see the masks since you are playing from first person, but the team you are going against will get a good look at their beauty.

Sombra's legendary skin can be found in loot crates or can be purchased if you have credits handy. You'll also have the chance to find or buy three other legendary skins: Opera Brigitte, Mask Dancer Moira (which i..
