Everything you need to know about Scorn, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
Scorn is one seriously disturbed game. Its emphasis on grotesque representations of the human form with a slightly alien twist are not only worthy of the Giger style, but showcase a certain grotesque brilliance that doesn't seem to be beholden to any previously established work.
What that minimalistic teaser doesn't tell you, however, is that Scorn is much more than a visually disturbing work of art. According to the tiny team of developers over at the Serbian studio Ebb Software, Scorn is actually a first-person adventure title that is apparently looking to trend closer to a first-person shooter, but with a few twists on the genre's most dated concepts.
Specifically, Scorn is interested in doing away with the idea of enemies that are automatically hostile to you (similar to what we saw with the Big Daddies in Bioshock) and the popular notion of in-game cutscenes. Instead, Scorn's story is intended to be conveyed via the game's environment. The game's website even suggests that you're at risk of missing potentially crucial bits of the story if you are not willing to explore every inch of this horrific world. That's a feat made all the more difficult by Scorn's supposed lack of a traditional HUD.
Mostly, though, the game is designed to get under your skin and creep you out. Scorn may not be a traditional horror game, but its emphasis on atmosphere certainly has the potential to disturb players more than any game wielding that tag.
Here's everything else we know about the game:
Scorn Release Date
Scorn is set to be released for the PC in two parts with the first part (Dasien) set to debut sometime in 2018. There is no confirmation regarding the release of console versions of the game at this time.
Alongside the launch of their Kickstarter campaign for the game, developer Ebb Software has released a new trailer for Scorn.
This latest preview for the game emphasizes the "meaty' H.R. Giger inspired design that initially helped Scorn capture the attention of gamers everywhere. This time, however, we get a better look at how the game's organic weapons will affect the combat.
Whenever a game invokes the name of H.R. Giger as a creative inspiration, they almost always put themselves on pretty shaky ground considering that Giger's legendary surrealist paintings and visual effects work remain some of the most surefire sources of nightmare fuel in existence. In other words, it's a tough comparison to live up to.
While you may initially scoff at the idea of the upcoming Steam Greenlight game Scorn using the hallowed name of Giger, its recently released teaser trailer suggests that Scorn may indeed be a piece of work worthy of the famed creator himself.
Everything you need to know about Secret of Mana HD, including latest news, release date, trailers, and more!
Square Enix's cult classic Super Nintendo RPG, Secret of Mana, is being completely remade. This remake will feature an entirely new graphics engine that makes Secret of Mana resemble some recent Dragon Quest games as well as some Final Fantasy remakes. Despite this, it's clear that the original Secret of Mana art style (which is still simply stunning) can be found here and there in the new engine if you care to look for it. The game will also feature full voice acting, expanded story elements, new gameplay, and an updated musical score.
If you are unfamiliar with Secret of Mana, then you are unfamiliar with one of the Super Nintendo's best games. Secret of Mana changed the Square Enix (then SquareSoft) formula quite a bit by featuring a real-time combat system that allowed for cooperative multiplayer elements. Despite these changes, the game's score and story were worthy of the best JRPGs in that golden era of JRPG.
Here's everything else we know:
Secret of Mana HD Release Date
Secret of Mana HD is scheduled to be released on February 15, 2018 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC via Steam. The retail price is $39.99. Those who preorder the game will receive additional character costumes.
Secret of Mana HD Trailer
Here's the first trailer for this surprising remake:

Everything we know about Octopath Traveler, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
The developers of the hit 3DS JRPG Bravely Default are teaming up once more to create a new JRPG for the Nintendo Switch called Octopath Traveler.
First off, that...unique name is a reference to the game's eight main characters and eight explorable worlds. For the moment, though, it is being referred to as a working title. Given that Nintendo showcased the game via a four-minute trailer, however, we're guessing that this game is fairly far along in development.
In terms of narrative and certain gameplay conventions, Octopath Traveler is very much a classic Square Enix-style JRPG. There are colorful characters, grand evils, and turn-based combat as far as the eye can see.
That said, it wouldn't be fair to call this project a throwback. For instance, Octopath Traveler will allow players to utilize characters special abilities outside of combat. This means that your warrior will be able to challenge most NPCs to a duel which may allow him to complete sidequests or access previously inaccessible areas. A dancer hero, meanwhile, can allure friendly and enemy characters. That last example is particularly hilarious as it means you'll be able to lead certain foes to cleverly placed traps and avoid combat altogether.
Elsewhere, Octopath Traveler's visuals benefit from a style the developers are referring to as "HD 2D." The benefits of this new approach are immediately apparent. Octopath Traveler brilliantly maintains the basic visual style of classic JRPGs but greatly benefits from a noticeable increase in environmental details and lighting effects. It's a stunning visual design approach that we already want to see more of.
Here's everything else we know about the game:
Octopath Traveler Release Date
While Octopath Traveler sadly won't get a global release until 2018, Square Enix is releasing a demo of the game that should be available to Switch users before the end of the night.
Octopath Traveler Trailer
Here's the first trailer for Octopath Traveler:
And here's almost an hour of gameplay:
Everything we know about Age of Empires IV, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
The long-running rumor that Microsoft is working on a new Age of Empires game finally proved to be true at Gamescom 2017 when the publisher announced that Age of Empires IV is in development.
Microsoft has passed off development duties of the famous real-time strategy game to Relic Entertainment, creators of the Dawn of War franchise. What Relic Entertainment have in mind for the franchise is truly anyone's guess. The above reveal trailer only serves as a stylish confirmation that the game is in development. It showcases war throughout various time periods and regions which is, creatively speaking, in-line with the standards of the series thus far.
Of course, some people are a bit worried that Relic Entertainment might not be the premier name in strategy game design that they used to be. Dawn of War III was berated by many longtime fans for its changes to the franchise formula as well as for some of the features it lacked in comparison to previous Dawn of War games.
Still, Relic Entertainment's library contains far more hits than misses, and there is a timeless quality to the Age of Empires franchise which has helped ensure that the original titles remain some of the most popular strategy games in the world.
Here's everything else we know about the game:
Age of Empires IV Release Date
Age of Empires IV doesn't have a release date at this time. The game will arrive on PC.
Microsoft also confirmed at Gamescom 2017 that it plans on remastering Age of Empires II and III in the same manner that they remastered the intend to remaster the original Age of Empires which was revealed earlier this year. That news is especially exciting in the case of Age of Empires II, which is arguably the definitive game in the series and one of the best real-time strategy games ever made. Of course, Age of Empires III is no slouch either.
There's no word yet on when those remasters will be released, but they are expected to be available before Age of Empires IV.
Age of Empires IV Trailer
Here's the first trailer:
Everything we know about Halo 6, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
Developer 343 Industries really wants you to know that you shouldn't expect to see Halo 6in the near future. In a post on Halo Waypoint, 343 writer Jeff Easterling reaffirmed 343's decision to not show off Halo 6at E3 and also let Halo fans know that the studio doesn't feel any immediate pressure to showcase the game in the near future.
"While there's little to nothing that can be said on that front, it's been made clear that we won't be talking about Halo's next major title for quite some time," said Easterling. "And no, that doesn't mean Gamescom. Or PAX. Trust us, when we're ready to begin pulling back that proverbial curtain, you'll know. It won’t be soon."
Of course, it's only been two years since Halo 5 was released and the game still supports a respectably large community of players according to previous reports from Microsoft. That being the case, 343 may very well choose to wait until E3 2018 to showcase their progress on the project.
Here's everything else we know about Halo 6:
Halo 6 Story
Kiki Wolfkill, head of 343 Industries, and longtime Halo director Frank O'Connor recently gave an interview to GameTM magazine in which the two acknowledged the disappointment some fans felt when they realized that Master Chief wasn't the focus of Halo 5.
"We very much realized that people wanted Master Chief's story of Halo 5," said O'Connor. "We definitely marketed in a way that we hoped was going to bring surprise, but for some fans and certainly fans of Master Chief, it was a huge disappointment because they wanted more Chief."
O'Conner goes on to say that he wasn't so much surprised by the reaction of fans who wanted to see more of Master Chief, but that he perhaps didn't quite fully appreciate just how much stock fans put into wanting to play as Master Chief at the outset of a new Halo adventure. He acknowledges that Chief is "slightly more important now than he has ever been, certainly to our franchise."
Understandably, O'Connor and Wolfkill are remaining coy as it pertains to any plans they may have in place to address this issue in Halo 6, but they did note that they plan on dialing back on introducing more characters to this universe in favor of "making the world a little bit more realistic and compelling."
There are few ways to interpret this information. It sounds highly unlikely that Halo 6 will echo Halo 5's format by primarily focusing on a new character who must live in the shadow of Master Chief. However, it may be a bit of a stretch to say that the next Halo game will focus solely on Master Chief. That's certainly a path that 343 can go down, but there's also the likely possibility that the developer will choose to focus on existing characters - including Chief - instead of expanding the universe's mythology even more.
Halo 6 Details
During her speech at D.I.C.E., 343 Industries' general manager Bonnie Ross stated that the studio realizes it was a mistake to not develop split screen functionality for Halo 5.
"When we didn't put split screen in Halo 5, it was incredibly painful for the community and for us," said Ross. "I think it erodes trust with the community, as the community is a part of our world building."
Head of Xbox Phil Spencer had previously stated that the reason 343 dropped split-screen is because studies showed most gamers preferred to play cooperatively over Xbox Live. Given the size of the discrepancy, it was decided that it was no longer worth the development resources to continue to create similar modes. However, following the release of Halo 5, it soon became clear that those who still utilized the mode felt a sense of attachment to it that simple usage metrics could not quite account for.
Recognizing how passionate fans are about split-screen Halo gaming, Ross stated that "For any FPS, we will always have split screen support going forward." In other words, it sounds like 343 won't be releasing another Halo game that doesn't include some kind of split-screen multiplayer option.
Everything you need to know about Bayonetta 3, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
Platinum Games are developing Bayonetta 3 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
The reveal trailer showcased during the 2017 Game Awards didn't show much more than same vague visual cues and the reveal of the official logo. As such, drawing any substantial information from it - such as its release date or plot details - is especially difficult and somewhat irresponsible at this early date.
If you still haven't had the honor of being a first-time Bayonetta player, you should first know that Platinum Games' franchise is arguably the best action experience of its kind since the glory days of the Devil May Cry series. The second game in the series was released exclusively for Wii U in 2014. It was one of the most critically acclaimed games of the year and is widely considered to be among the finest action titles ever made.
Here's everything we know about Bayonetta 3:
Bayonetta 3 Release Date
Bayonetta 3 doesn't have a release date at this time. The game is coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch.
Bayonetta 3 Trailer
Here's the first trailer for Bayonetta 2:
Everything we know about SoulCalibur VI, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
Considering how the fighting game genre has been able to make a comeback these last few years, one question that’s been brought up quite a bit is, “Where’s SoulCalibur?” Bandai Namco’s second fighting game cash cow used to be a huge deal, but it’s been years since the last installment kind of crapped the bed. Luckily, The 2017 Game Awards announced the return of the franchise!
The Soul series began back in 1995 with the exceptional Soul Edge, renamed Soul Blade on consoles. The game’s story takes place in 1584 and centers around armed warriors from around the world fighting over the rights to a cursed sword known as Soul Edge, then wielded by a possessed pirate. This would lead to the sequel SoulCalibur, which would hold onto the branding for all the later installments. The series has continued to focus on the quest for the evil sword ever since.
The last real installment was SoulCalibur V in 2012, which didn’t exactly set the world on fire due to how little the game had to offer, especially compared to its predecessors. Hopefully, SoulCalibur VI will return to the glory days of the Dreamcast era.
Get your blind gimp cosplay ready because SoulCalibur VI is a go. Here's everything we know about the game:
SoulCalibur VI Release Date
SoulCalibur VI will arrive in 2018 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. Coincidentally, the series will celebrate its 20th-anniversary next year.
SoulCalibur VI Trailer
Here's the extended trailer that played at PSX 2017:
We obviously can’t parse too much from a one-minute video that shows off two mainstays, an incomplete glimpse at a new character, and flashbacks to the Soul Edge doing stuff. In terms of gameplay, the studio seems to be playing up some kind of buff/trait system by the way Sophitia and Mitsurugi power up and slice at each other in the end.
One thing that does stick out is the continuity. SoulCalibur IV ended with Sophitia dying and SoulCalibur V jumped ahead about 15 years to focus on her children. Not only is Sophitia alive and well here, but amidst all the random visions shown, the narrator mentions how “history hides away more than one truth.” In other words, there might be an in-story retcon of SoulCalibur V in the works, setting up VI as the beginning of a new timeline.
Hey, it worked like gangbusters for Mortal Kombat.

Everything you need to know about Overkill's The Walking Dead, including latest news, release date, trailers, and more!
Overkill's The Walking Dead was first revealed in 2014. Starbreeze promised that the game would be an inventive adaptation of the original Walking Dead comics that emphasizes co-op gameplay, storytelling, and robust level design that will supposedly heighten the game's replay value.
Remarkably, the only real updates we've been treated to since the game was first revealed involve its many delays. The Walking Dead was originally delayed until 2016, was then delayed until 2017, and now is delayed until 2018. In that time, developer Overkill has never really revealed much about the game beyond the vague details which accompanied its release. Even the game's title still sounds like an internal reference.
Meanwhile, Overkill has continued to update PayDay 2 and have reportedly begun preliminary work on PayDay 3. While the release of the latter game is supposedly still some time away, it's fair to say that they are not solely devoted to completing The Walking Dead.
Perhaps, though, Overkill can surprise us all by delivering a Walking Dead game that manages to surpass the show's declining popularity by reviving the thrill of the source material.
Here's everything else we know about the game:
Overkill The Walking Dead Release Date
Starbreeze has announced that Overkill's The Walking Dead has been delayed until sometime in the second half of 2018. The publisher confirmed the 2018 delay via their Sweedish website. Oddly, the delay announcement itself is not translatable into English directly through the Starbreeze website. According to third-party translations, however, Starbreeze's decision to delay the game stems from their desire to ensure that the game reaches its full potential.
Overkill The Walking Dead Trailer
Here's a new trailer introducing Aidan, one of the four playable characters in the game:
And if you want more, here's the original announcement trailer:
Overkill The Walking Dead Story
We also have a synopsis of the game:
Inspired by the rich story universe of Robert Kirkman’s original graphic novels, Overkill’s The Walking Dead is a four-player co-op multiplayer FPS action game set in Washington, D.C., as an outbreak brings the dead back to life. In this test of strategy and endurance, players will band together with up to three friends on a variety of missions and raids, securing supplies and survivors to strengthen their base camp against the threat of both the dead and the living - by any means necessary.
Each playable character has their own special abilities, skill trees, squad roles, play styles and background stories. Now they all share a common objective where survival and teamwork is paramount. The action is close-up and intense: take out enemies carefully with silent melee attacks or go in guns blazing. You need to be able to improvise, as nothing is certain, and a horde of walkers is always around the corner.
Overkill The Walking Dead Screenshots
Until we learn more concrete information about the game, you'll have to judge these concept art shots that Starbreeze released during a livestream back in May 2017 in order to get an idea of how the game is shaping up:
Everything you need to know about the World War Z game, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
While it's a little late to the party, there is a new game based on World War Z in the works.
From what we can tell, this game seems to be based on the book or the general property rather than the World War Z film. That's probably for the best given that the film made some pretty serious departures from the original content. It also wasn't very good.
This adaptation of World War Z will be helmed by Saber Interactive; the team behind Quake Champions and TimeShift. It's described as a four-player co-op action game (no word on whether four players will be required) that requires players to navigate a series of major locations across the globe and escape the zombie hordes.
Escape seems to be the word of the day here. As it stands, it seems like this game will emphasize survival and evasion through things like traps and utilizing environmental elements to your advantage. This doesn't seem to be exactly like a Left 4 Dead type experience where you just blast through hordes with your other survivors. Instead, there appears to be more of an emphasis on pure horror and strategy.
Of course, that's all a bit speculative at this early point considering that we really haven't seen actual footage from the game. However, Saber Interactive did state that the missions themselves will heavily emphasize the "unique survivor stories" of your companions and that there will be action set-pieces here and there. So while it walks like Left 4 Dead, and talks like Left 4 Dead, we're going to guess that this game will find ways to distinguish itself from that legendary franchise.
Here's everything else we know about the game:
World War Z Release Date
There's no word on this game's release date. However, we do know that that World War Z will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC when it does hit shelves.
World War Z Trailer
Here's the first trailer:
Everything we know about Witchfire, including latest news, release date, trailer, and much more!
The Astronauts, the team behind the exceptional The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, have revealed that their next project is a dark fantasy shooter called Witchfire. There's no word on its release date or which platforms it will be available for, but there is a teaser trailer for the project.
Details are still sadly scarce at this time, but what we can tell you is that The Astronauts are going for a very dark, very gritty vibe with this action title. Actually, there's more than a touch of Dark Souls in the game's visuals and overall design aesthetics.
Players will be able to combat the numerous evils that plague these digital lands with a combination of firearms and magic. It seems like you'll mostly be relying on your guns, but magic will at least be available to you as a power-up option if not a full-fledged combat method.
What really makes us excited about this game, though, is the fact that Vanishing of Ethan Carter so happened to be one of the most impressive atmospheric games in recent memory. It was criticized for being a walking simulator, but the reveal of Witchfire made it clear that the team behind that gem have taken what they've learned from their work on that game and converted it to a full-on action experience.
Of course, it probably shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that the studio is adept at making a shooter. After all, the studio's founders used to work for People Can Fly (the studio behind Painkiller, Bulletstorm, and Gears of War: Judgement). Each of those shooters was famous for their dark tones and intense combat. We're not sure if the intense combat is going to make the transition here, but we fully expect this to be a gorgeous game that just overwhelms you with little design details.
We'll share more information on this game as it becomes available.
Monsters attacking buildings and only Dwayne Johnson can stop them? Check out the first trailer for Rampage!
Rampagewas one of the ultimate quarter-eaters of its glory day. The classic video game allowed you to take control of your typical monster movie standards, a giant lizard (not Godzilla), a giant ape (not royalty), and... a giant werewolf. Your mission? To destroy as many buildings as possible while the army tries to kill you.
There have been other Rampagegames, but none matched the charm of the original. The thought of a Rampagemovie might seem a little redundant because, well... that's what Godzilla, King Kong, and assorted other kaiju flicks are for. Plus, there's even a Godzilla vs. Kong movie in the works to arrive after Kong: Skull Islandand Godzilla 2. Ah, but I digress...
Rampage Movie Trailer
The first trailer for Rampage has arrived! Check it out below:
Rampage Movie Release Date
Dwayne Johnson has a full schedule, of course, but Rampage is his next film, and it begins filming in April to make a release date of April 20, 2018.
Here, let him tell you himself:
Spent my Friday night at our Warner Bros offices in a 6hr script session with these rampaging rockstars. Our RAMPAGE (next movie I'll make) writers, producers, director and star (occasionally me). Even though this took us deep into Friday night and we all have families and stuff to do - this kind of meeting is so critical to our movie's success. Everyone's instincts were firing on the highest of levels. My fav moment from this merciless 6hr meeting was when I shared with this group that there's an equity and trust I've built with my audience that they trust me to take them on an epic ride, and always do our best to send them home happy. A very cool moment to see everyone's eyes light and heads start to nod. To win on any level you gotta have teamwork and collaboration and cant thank everyone enough in this room for their energy and focus. You truly helped us move the needle. And Wendy Jane you're Superwoman for your creative brilliance and putting up with all these asshole's dumb guy jokes. Not me of course, I'm a gentleman. %uD83D%uDE08 Next stop for me in my research - the Primate division at the Atlanta Zoo (my character's a Primatologist & head of an anti poaching unit in Rwanda). Really informative and educational character to play and project to work on. More to come. Start shooting this APRIL. #RAMPAGE
Rampage Movie Synopsis
Here is the plot synopsis for this glorious weirdness:
Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an gunshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has bgggeen in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters tear across North Amerigca, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
Rampage Movie Cast
The Rampagemovie stars none other than Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, although not as one of the giant monsters. Instead he's playing "an animal loving hero who is the world's only hope." Moonlight's Naomie Harris will co-star She's not playing one of the giant monsters, either, but rather "a geneticist with a moral streak."
The Walking Dead villain Jeffrey Dean Morgan has joined the cast as Agent Russell. Russell is described by Deadline as a guy "who works for a covert government division called OGA and rolls with serious swagger and attitude." No word on whether this is the same organization that Johnson's character works for, or if he's the villain.
Joe Manganiello is on board in an unspecified role, and since he has already achieved success playing a werewolf on HBO's True Blood, is it too much to ask that he's playing a giant werewolf in this one? Yes, I know the giant werewolf was female in the game, this would just make for some symmetry. Marley Shelton is also in talks, but again, no details on her character are available at this time. (casting info and character descriptions via THR)
Rampage Movie Story
Brad Peyton, who directed Johnson in the similarly destructive San Andreas, is directing. "It’s going to be a lot more emotional, a lot scarier and a lot more real than you’d expect,"Peyton told We Got This Covered back in December. "So you look at that original concept about a lab that affects these animals and makes them rampage, and that’s the nugget."
Don't worry, though, it's definitely "a monster film" and he confirmed that the iconic rampagers will all be in there. "There’s the three, the lizard, the ape and the wolf, so we’re keeping it similar, but you’ll have to stay tuned to find out where we’re going with this."
Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal initially were involved with the script, but recent reports have Ryan Engle and Adam Sztykiel on "scary" duty.
Rampage Movie Photos
We are nearing Rampage's XYZ release date, and as such the marketing is about to kick it into high gear. Indeed, below we have our first look at stills and set photos from the movie. Most of these images highlight for now that, yes, the Rock and Oscar nominee Naomie Harris are in this movie about giant monsters doing what they do best:
This fits nicely with the Rock's previous social media blitz this summer during production:
Rampaging nights with my partners in crime, Naomie Harris and Jeffery Dean Morgan. The animal loving anti-poacher Ranger from Rwanda, the groundbreaking geneticist from CRISPR and the cowboy himself from the OGA - the "other" government agency. Three gigantic mutated monsters (silverback, crocodile and grey wolf) rampaging across the country. Party in hell. We'll see you there. #OnSet #Rampage 4-20-2018
Dwayne posted a little peek at some work we've been doing on set of Rampage! #Repost @therock (@get_repost) %u30FB%u30FB%u30FB When my bestie, George (an extremely rare Albino silverback) gets hangry. Hungry + angry. Blown away by this technology. Makin' a cool movie for you guys here on set of #Rampage. When George (and a crocodile and grey wolf) are infected they grow at a rapid rate to gigantic proportions rampaging across the country. In this scene our Oscar winning Weta Digital (Lord of the Rings, Avatar etc) is using their ground breaking "performance capture" to bring "George" the Silverback to life. It uses over 30 special cameras to "see" the performance of my co-actor @tallie7487 allowing the digital artists to make the most realistic and badass animations possible. He's wearing a "facial capture helmet" and we can record every muscle movement and expression and emotion of George as goes on a rampage. Jason studied gorillas for months preparing for this performance capture role - facial expressions, sounds, habits and emotions. Spectacular performance. What a learning curve for me and such a pleasure to help produce these amazing artists who come to set daily to be game changers. More to come. Amazing technology. #WETADigital #Hydraulx #Rampage #MyHangryBestFriend
Johnson also had a recent Facebook post answering enormous questions that fans familiar with the rather straight-forward bash-and-smash nature of the classic video have regarding how this could possibly become a movie.
Indeed, Johnson divulges that Rampage will tell the story of three animals who are subjected to “evil genetic editing” that quickly alters their entire DNA, increasing their size, strength, agility and, frighteningly enough, their aggression. Moreover, in a game-referencing nod, Johnson reveals that his character in Primatologist Davis Okoye will be the “best friend” of an “albino gorilla” named George and provides a picture of George actor Jason Liles, who, at 6’ 9”, is seen rocking a motion capture suit, hunched over in Andy Serkis-type fashion, with the hand crutches (for lack of better terminology,) designed to emulate the shape and gait of a gorilla.
Everything you need to know about Call of Duty: WWII DLC, including release date, details, and much more!
The Call of Duty series is headed back to its roots with this year's installment. Call of Duty: WWIIreturns to a World War II, a departure from the last few entries, which have been set in modern or futuristic times. Last year's Call of Duty game, Infinite Warfare, wasn't as well-received by fans as Activision might have hoped, so the publisher and Sledgehammer Games felt it was time to return to what made the franchise great in the first place.
Below, you can find everything you need to know about Call of Duty: WWII:
Call of Duty: WWII DLC
It's been revealed that Call of Duty: WWII will receive four DLC releases. The first of these DLC releases, called The Resistance, is expected to include France, Czechoslovakia, and Poland maps. As for whether or not it will be story-based or multiplayer-based, that remains unknown.
The Resistance will be released on January 30th for PS4. There's been no word on whether other systems willl receive it the same day or when the other DLC packs will be released.
This new trailer reveals the return of the beloved Carentan map to Call of Duty multiplayer. Check out the trailer below:
Everything you need to know about GTFO, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
The designer of Payday and Payday 2, Ulf Anderson, has started a new studio called 10 Chambers Collective. His first project will retain Payday's four-player co-op gameplay but will add an element of horror that only exists in Payday when someone screws up the vault drill.
GTFO is described as a "terrifying 4 player co-op game for hardcore FPS players." It sees a team of four scavengers explore various locales in an effort to extract valuable artifacts. Standing in their way are some truly horrifying monstrosities that seem to be quite keen on eating human beings when they get the chance to do so.
We're not sure what's behind the miniature resurrection of four-player co-op shooters, but this one does feature a few elements that have us undeniably intrigued. Not the least among them is that awesome synth soundtrack that played over the game's debut trailer.
However, it's really the design of the game's monsters that deserves the most attention. This isn't the usual army of zombies but a series of utterly bizarre creatures. Actually, it feels like there might be a hint of Starship Troopers in the design of the enemies and the style of action.
Here's everything else you need to know about F:
GTFO Release Date
GTFO is set to release on PC sometime in 2018.
Here is the debut trailer for GTFO:
The trailer showcases a few gameplay hints that suggest this will be a rather deep action experience. For instance, it appears that players can set-up basic defenses when things go wrong and access a kind of x-ray scouting device that provides a brief glimpse at what lies ahead.
Also of note is the way that GTFO incorporates story into the missions. Your crew of scavengers clearly know each other well and seem to make quite a few references to prior events and the current situation via in-game dialog.
Everything you need to know about Fade to Silence, including latest news, release date, trailer, and much more!
The survival genre grows by one as the recently formed THQ Nordic has revealed a new survival game called Fade to Silence.
According to the game's Steam page, Fade to Silence sees players assume the role of a man named Ash who has been thrust into the role of leader following an unidentified apocalyptic event. Said event seems to have turned Ash's corner of the world into a winter wasteland. It's up to Ash to ensure that he and his part somehow manage to survive.
At the point, it seems that the game places much more emphasis on survival than it does on action. While there are enemies in the game (some of which appear to be unnatural) your main goal is to collect the resources needed to keep everyone alive. For instance, gathering wood will allow you to start a fire in your camp, but it can also be used to craft some crude tools and weapons.
You may want to opt for the fire, though, as the cold weather is actually described as Ash's greatest enemy. It's not entirely clear how that is going to work at this time, but it seems that there will be some kind of temperature system that will track the effect the cold weather is having on Ash and his companions. Said companions include a team of wolves that can pull Ash around on a sled.
As for the combat, it seems to be surprisingly in-depth for this kind of game. Developer THQ Nordic has already emphasized the game's melee combat system and the way that it will require players to manage several techniques. Of course, you'll probably need more than a pocketful of skills and a pointy stick to best some of the game's more intimidating foes.
Here's everything else we know about Fade to Silence:
Fade to Silence Release Date
As it stands, Fade to Silence is expected to debut for Steam Early Access on December 14, and it will remain in that state for a period of about eight months. It should then receive a full release in time for August 2018. The game is coming exclusively to PC.

Here's the debut trailer for the game:
Everything you need to know about Strange Brigade, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
Sniper Elite development team Rebellion has revealed the latest supernatural addition to the series. Strange Brigade will take players to the "remote corners of the British Empire" where they will the need to combat various supernatural forces with the help of firearms, explosives, and good ole' melee attacks.
Much like the Nazi Zombie Army series, Strange Brigade is a 1-4 player shooter experience that emphasizes co-op gameplay. Basically, you should be thinking of Left 4 Deadwhen imagining the kind of chaotic gameplay this title will surely offer.
Unlike Nazi Zombie Army which treads some pretty well-known ground with the its "Hitler was into the occult" and "Zombies" aspects, Strange Brigade distinguishes itself from the co-op shooter pack with its serial adventure inspired universe that seems to take more cues from the Universal monster movies than George Romero.
The brief reveal trailer for the game reveals what appears to be ancient Egyptian mythological monsters, cave dwelling creatures, and other guardians of legend who look a tad bit more formidable than the average member of the walking dead.
Most likely, you can still expect Strange Brigade to feature specialty enemies, hordes of foes, and all the other aspects we've come to associate with this particular genre of gaming. However, we'd be lying if we told you that the game's incredible sense of style doesn't make our trigger fingers itch at the thought of fighting off a horde of supernatural enemies with our friends once more.
Here's everything else you need to know:
Strange Brigade Release Date
Strange Brigade will launch for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. No release date has been set.

Everything you need to know about Final Fantasy XV DLC, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
Almost a year after Square Enix's highly anticipated Final Fantasy XV hit stores, the game is still getting new DLC and story expansions. Below you can find all the details on the upcoming DLC, which includes the Comrades multiplayer DLC pack and the Episode Loctisstory expansion:
Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn Details
Square Enix has announced that they plan on releasing at least three DLC episode add-ons for Final Fantasy XV in 2018. These episodes will each focus on different characters or specific aspects of the game's world just as previous major expansions for the game have done.
While Square Enix is choosing to remain quiet about most of the episodes until closer to their release, they did confirm that one of them will focus on Final Fantasy XVvillain, Ardyn. It seems that Square Enix plans on using this DLC as a chance to expand upon Ardyn as a character and really explore his motivations. The designers have also indicated that they'd like to focus on fellow villain Luna, but did not confirm if that story will be a separate DLC release.
There is no specific release date available for Episode Ardyn at this time.
Final Fantasy XV: Comrades Multiplayer DLC Details
Final Fantasy XV's fourth expansion, Comrades, is set to be released on November 15th. Initially, Square Enix intended to release this DLC on October 31, but announced their decision to delay it slightly in order to perform final tweaks.
The focus of this expansion is custom character creation. Players will be able to create their own characters and equip them with a variety of new and existing powers. While there will be plenty of content designed to allow players to grow their custom characters, it has been said that this expansion will still focus more on party combat.
Square Enix has also noted that the characters from the main game will be added to the expansion down the line, but they will not be available at the time of the DLC's launch.
Here are a few screenshots from the current build of Comrades DLC:
Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ignis DLC Details
Final Fantasy XV's epic - if controversial - story continues in this stunning new trailer for the game's next story DLC, Episode Ignis.
As the title suggests, this next DLC release will focus on Ignis who was a primary party member from the main story. While it's clear that the DLC's story takes place sometime before the conclusion of the main game, the complicated timeline of the base narrative does make it tricky to pin down exactly when it occurs. We see scenes involving a massive invasion, for instance, so it's entirely possible that this add-on will actually takes place across a few different time periods.
What we do know is that Episode Ignis will include some new gameplay features designed to take advantage of the main character's unique abilities. It also seems that Ignis will not be alone in this particular journey, but it's still not clear whether or not you will be forming a full party in this new adventure.
The most interesting story tidbit included in this trailer is certainly the "post-credits sequence" which sees Ignis being tempted to leave his friends. That scene is followed by the text "Master Your Fate," which may seem to suggest that there might be some kind of element of choice in play at some point during this story DLC.
Episode Ignis is expected to release on December 13th. It will be immediately available for all Season Pass holders, but there hasn't been any confirmation regarding the DLC's standalone price or if it will be a free content release.
Square Enix promised that Final Fantasy XV would receive quite a bit of DLC post-release. So far, they've made good on that promise. Most of the DLC released thus far has been free in-game events and strange - but enjoyable - additions such as an enhance fishing minigame, but now that we are getting into the story DLC releases, we should finally be able to see if Square Enix is ready to use this post-release content as a way to expand upon FF XV's odd narrative beats.
Everything you need to know about Vampyr, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
Life Is Strange developer Dontnod's latest project is an RPG called Vampyr. The game stars a vampire named Jonathan, who stalks the streets of a flu-infested London, fighting off monster hunters and feeding on the living in order to survive.
According to Dontnod, Vampyr will include brawling, shooting, crafting, and a range of missions doled out by non-player characters. The twist, however, is that you'll have to find mortal victims to slake your thirst for blood.
"Don’t forget: sooner or later, you will have to feed, and make a difficult choice... who will be your prey?" Dontnod's press release reads. "Absolutely all characters in the game are potential victims of your vampiric lust. Carefully study the habits of your next victim, his or her relationships with other characters, and set up your strategy to feed, unnoticed: seduce them, change their daily habits, or make sure they end up alone in a dark street..."
It sounds like a solid concept and a clever use of its early 20th-century setting. If Dontnod can couple the world building of Remember Me with a more compelling combat system, we could be in for a claret-spattered treat.
Here's everything else you need to know about the game:
Vampyr Release Date
Oskar Guilbert, CEO of DontNod Entertainment, has announced that Vampyr has been delayed until Spring 2018.
"Delaying the release of a project you hold dear is always a tough decision," writes Guilbert in a press release. "However, we believe that meeting a deadline should never compromise quality. We were still convinced just a few weeks ago that we would be able to release Vampyr this year. Unfortunately, a technical issue - now solved - has set our teams' schedule back at the end of the development.
Guilbert also noted that this delay will allow the development team enough time to properly manage the balance and polishing stages of development which are "much needed for a game of Vampyr's scope..."
The E3 2017 trailer for Vampyr seems to have been released a little ahead of schedule. While this new preview doesn't offer any glimpses into Vampyr's still mysterious gameplay, it does afford us a look at the highly cinematic - and very dark - London setting that those who choose to take a chance on the game will inhabit.
This next gameplay trailer promises vampiric combat, RPG elements, and, most interestingly, the ability to choose who Jonathan feeds on. Jonathan's ability to take control of a victim, escort them to a dark place, and drink their blood is by far Vampyr's most intriguing gameplay element thus far.
Check out the gameplay trailer below:
You can see the first teaser trailer below:
Cédric Lagarrigue, president of publisher Focus Home Interactive, told MCVUK that Vampyr will not feature any DLC.
"This is a purely solo experience; we did not plan DLC. We would prefer, if the reception of the game justifies it, to think about a sequel," Lagarrigue said. "We and Dontnod already have some ideas, as there are so many incredible things to offer in such a universe."
What we know about Metro Exodus, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
4A Games returns with Metro Exodus! Much like the previous Metro games, this one appears to contain a mix of subterranean and overworld exploration gameplay spiced up a bit by the inclusion of challenging combat. As for the timeline, this appears to be a sequel to the previous titles, but that is largely based on the degenerative nature of the universe rather than any specific plot points.
Otherwise, this title appears to share many of the gameplay and environmental aspects that make the Metro franchise so unique. If anything, there may be a slightly stronger emphasis on creature combat over human encounters (if the footage shown is any indication, at least) but we'll wait until more of the game is revealed before making too many assumptions.
Here's everything else we know about the game:
Metro Exodus Release Date
Metro Exodus arrives in Fall 2018. It is XBO, PS4, and PC.
Metro Exodus Trailer
A new trailer premiered at The Game Awards 2017. Check it out below:
And here's the reveal trailer for Metro Exodus:
Everything you need to know about A Way Out, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
A Way Out comes to us from Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons creator Josef Fares and his new venture Hazelight Studios. It follows two inmates who are trying to escape a high-security prison for their own reasons. Should they manage to do so, they will then need to find a way to escape the law and perhaps even find a bit of peace.
Here's what you need to know about the game:
A Way Out Release Date
A Way Out arrives on March 23, 2018. It's coming to PS4, XBO, and PC.
A Way Out Trailer
Here's the new trailer:
One of the most pleasant surprises of E3 2017 was certainly this first trailer for A Way Out.
A Way Out Details
Much like Brothers, A Way Out will emphasize multiple character gameplay. Unlike Brothers, A Way Out will be an entirely co-op experience. What that means is that you will need to play the game with someone else and will not be able to play as both characters with one controller as you could in Brothers.
This emphasis on co-op gameplay makes sense when you dive into the gameplay specifics. Josef Fares stated that A Way Out will focus on the ability to operate inherently from your partner in many situations. So, while you'll participate in standard co-op fare such as shooting from a vehicle while your partner drives, you'll also be asked to perform more complicated tasks that require each of you to handle a specific assignment.
Interestingly, one character will never have to complete a specific assignment meaning it is up to the players to determine who does what. Furthermore, if one player is caught up in a cutscene or otherwise indisposed, the other player will still be able to control their character independently.
Everything you need to know about Code Vein, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
Now that the Dark Souls series is officially done, Bandai Namco has a hole in their lineup that was previously occupied by a hardcore RPG series with a moody atmosphere and strong action elements.
While it's going to be hard for any game to ever completely fill that void, we must say that Bandai Namco's upcoming action RPG Code Vein looks like it has a chance to fulfill the desires of Dark Souls fans everywhere.
Here's everything we know about Code Vein:
Code Vein Release Date
Code Vein is set to release in 2018. The game is coming to PS4, XBO, and PC.
Code Vein Trailer
Code Vein's third trailer finally gives us a little better look at the game's world and the characters who call it home. What it really does, though, is double-down on the game's anime style. Vampires battling each other with blood-based superpowers while rock music blares in the background? Yeah, we're kind of ready to play this one.
This next teaser does a nice job of emphasizing the game's anime inspirations and generally cool vibe. It certainly offers more than enough reasons to keep your eyes on this game in the future.
Code Vein's E3 2017 trailer showcases that blend of familiar Dark Souls gameplay and anime visuals that previous previews had hinted at. We look forward to seeing more from this promising adventure title.
While the teaser for Code Vein suggested that it might be a hand-drawn, Dark Souls-esque action RPG starring vampires, the official reveal trailer for Code Veinshows off a slightly different experience. Code Vein still borrows aspects of Dark Souls' combat system and RPG elements, but the game's art style borrows more from the God Hand series with its anime flourishes.
Code Vein Story
Here's the official synopsis for the game:
"In the not too distant future, a mysterious disaster has brought collapse to the world as we know it. Towering skyscrapers, once symbols of prosperity, are now lifeless graves of humanity’s past pierced by the Thorns of Judgment. At the center of the destruction lies a hidden society of Revenants called Vein. This final stronghold is where the remaining few fight to survive, blessed with Gifts of power in exchange for their memories and a thirst for blood. Give into the bloodlust fully and risk becoming one of the Lost, fiendish ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity."
Code Vein follows the adventures of vampiric entities collectively referred to as The Revenant who have formed an underground post-apocalyptic society. These creatures rely on blood in order to avoid becoming absolute monsters.
Code Vein Details
According to an interview in the Japanese magazine Famitsu (translated here by Gematsu), Code Vein is being developed by the same team behind the cult classic God Eater series. Despite the game's pedigree, producer Keita Iizuka claims that Code Vein is not related to the God Eater series in any direct fashion.
Instead, Code Vein is described as a "dramatic exploration action RPG." What that means is that it's a dungeon crawler action RPG that will emphasize the exploration of connected environments.
If that sounds like Dark Souls to you, then you'll be happy to know you're not being paranoid. The game's trailer even playfully uses "Prepare to Dine" as a tagline and seemingly respectful nod to that legendary franchise.
However, Code Vein does distinguish itself in several interesting ways. Namely, Code Veinwill emphasize a "Buddy" system that allows you to take a companion into new areas and develop them alongside your main hero. It also sounds like the game will primarily focus on melee combat, though we will be surprised if there isn't some magic and ranged combat to be found.
There's still much we don't know about Code Vein- including whether it will resemble the style shown in that teaser trailer and which systems it will be released on - but everything revealed thus far suggests it could Bandai Namco's next great hardcore RPG.
