Crackdown 3 is coming in 2019. Here's a new trailer plus everything else you need to know about the game!
Crackdown 3 is one of the Xbox One's big upcoming flagship titles. It's a game many fans of the original didn't think would happen after the tepid response and sales of Crackdown 2. But Microsoft Studios surprised everyone at E3 2014 by announcing that a third game was in development.
It's been a long time since that announcement. Several delays later, we're still waiting to hear about a solid release date for this action-adventure game that boasts fully destructible environments and tons of explosions.
Here's everything else we know:
Crackdown 3 Release Date
Crackdown 3 has been delayed to February 2019. The game is coming to XBO and PC, and will be part of the Play Anywhere program, which allows players to buy one copy of the game for both Xbox One and Windows 10 play.
Crackdown 3 Trailer
Check out the new E3 2018 trailer below:
Here's the E3 2017 trailer for Crackdown 3:
At Gamescom 2015, Microsoft unveiled the first gameplay footage of the game, showing us that the franchise hasn't changed too much. The same arcade-y feel of the original is still very much a part of this installment.
Of note is the destructible environments. Crackdown 3 is boasting more chaos and destruction than we've ever seen in a game. Perhaps only Battlefield can't top the explosions we just saw on the Gamescom stage.
Check out the trailer:
IGN also posted 17 minutes of gameplay onto their YouTube channel. The footage has some commentary from Crackdown creator Dave Jones. Here it is:
Crackdown 3 was first unveiled at E3 2014. It was just known as Crackdown then. Here's the reveal trailer:
Microsoft made good on their promises by bringing more exclusives to the Xbox brand.
As many have suspected, Microsoft announced at E3 2018 that they have acquired a number of studios who will develop titles exclusively for Microsoft platforms and have started a brand new internal studio.
That new internal studio, which is called The Initiative, is led by former Crystal Dynamics studio head, Darrell Gallagher. Gallagher has been in the video game industry for quite a while and has worked for a number of high-profile studios. The Initiative is reportedly already working on a new exclusive for Microsoft platforms, but Microsoft has not revealed what that game is.
Microsoft has also acquired the services of three promising smaller developers. As revealed during E3 2018, they have bought developer PlayGround Games (the team responsible for the Forza Horizonseries), Undead Labs (the State of Decay games), and Ninja Theory (Hellblade and DmC). While PlayGround and Undead Labs had previously worked on Microsoft exclusives, they are now official a part of the Microsoft Studios team. Ninja Theory is arguably the biggest "get" of the bunch, as they were previously a third-party developer whose titles have been attracting more and more attention over the years.
The full details of this deal haven't been revealed, which isn't surprising given that the financial details of these kinds of acquisitions are typically fully-disclosed. However, we expect that these developers will still be working on exclusive Microsoft titles by the time that the next generation of Microsoft platforms rolls around.
Phil Spencer previously stated that he feels Microsoft needs to do more to attract exclusive titles and first-party developers, and these acquisitions are certainly a step in the right direction.
It's also worth noting that it was reported that PlayGround is working on the next Fable game, and this acquisition certainly seems to suggest that might be the case.
The Division 2 is coming in 2019. Here's the first trailer plus everything else you need to know!
The Division 2, the sequel to the popular military loot shooter, is coming from Ubisoft.
"We're thrilled to announce that we are working on Tom Clancy's The Division 2, and that development will be led by Massive Entertainment in collaboration with Ubisoft Reflections, Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Annecy, Ubisoft Shanghai and Ubisoft Bucharest," reads a statement on the Ubisoft website. "The Division 2 will be powered by an updated version of the Snowdrop engine that enables us to realize our ambitions for the sequel, but more importantly, we're also taking everything we learned over the past two years and applying it towards the sequel to make sure we get it right."
Ubisoft has also stated that they are adding a new type of achievement to The Division which, when unlocked, will enable players to access special items in The Division 2.
The game takes place in Washington D.C. in the summer as opposed to the first game's NYC winter setting. Here's everything we know about the game:
The Division 2 Trailer
Here's the first trailer for The Division 2:
And check out a few minutes of gameplay!
The Division 2 Release Date
The Division 2 will arrive on March 15, 2019. It's coming to XBO, PS4, and PC.
Devil May Cry comes back home to Capcom in Devil May Cry 5.
It looks like one of the biggest rumors that preceded E3 2018 is true. Capcom is developing Devil May Cry 5.
The biggest piece of news that Capcom shared regarding the next Devi May Cry game is that Hideaki Itsuno is returning to direct this long-awaited sequel. Itsuno has worked on the franchise ever since the final months of Devil May Cry 2's development (he even served as a supervising director for Ninja Theory's 2013 DmC title) and his presence here bodes well for Capcom's intentions to deliver the kind of classic Devil May Cry experience that fans have been adamantly (annoyingly at times) clamoring for.
We're still waiting on Capcom to reveal some of the finer details about Devil May Cry 5, but at present, it appears that this will be a straight sequel to Devil May Cry 4and not a prequel, spin-off, or reboot. Dante certainly sports his Devil May Cry 4 looks in the game's debut trailer, and the few glimpses at a story the preview yielded suggest that this will be a continuation of some sorts.
Said continuations include an appearance by Nero who figures to be a playable character yet again. However, Capcom has not confirmed what his exact role in the game is at this time.
While this game was shown at the Microsoft E3 2018 press conference, they did not indicate that it is an exclusive title. Frankly, we'd be shocked if this game isn't available on PS4 and even PC. However, there's no word on this time regarding when the next Devil May Cry will be released.
While it hasn't been that long since we last received a Devil May Cry game, it has been 10 years since Capcom developed a new DMCtitle. As we noted earlier, Ninja Theory's take on the franchise wasn't exactly warmly received by longtime fans.
Cyberpunk 2077 looks to continue the revolution The Witcher series started. Here's what we know:
Cyberpunk 2077 will be CD Projekt Red's first game outside The Witcher universe, and its first foray into science fiction. Based on the Cyberpunk series of tabletop games, it is, as its name suggests, inspired by the pioneers of the cyberpunk subgenre - namely William Gibson and Bruce Sterling. We can therefore expect plenty of cyborgs, AI, benighted cities, and scary corporations.
While Cyberpunk 2077's very different in setting from The Witcher, we'll see the same mature themes and unforgiving difficulty level in this new outing.
"The Witcher helped Cyberpunk quite a bit, because the game got so big and so complex that it really taught us,” visual effects artist Jose Teixeira told MCV. “If anything, working on The Witcher 3 was a really good and often brutal learning experience. Cyberpunk is going to benefit greatly from it. I can almost guarantee it."
Here's everything else we know about the game:
Cyberpunk 2077 News
The official E3 2018 trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 showcases a more playful and lively vibe for the game than we were expecting to see. Expected or not, the game looks incredible.
Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date
Cyberpunk 2077 doesn't have a release date at the moment. The game is coming to XBO, PS4, PC.
Cyberpunk 2077 Trailer
It's been three years since developer CD Projekt Red debuted the trailer for their upcoming adaptation of Cyberpunk 2077, and you'd have a hard time using what we've learned about the game in the meantime as breadcrumbs to trace your way back to that reveal. Considering that CD Projekt Red was still hard at work putting the finishing touches on The Witcher 3 during much of that time, many gamers didn't think much of their radio silence. Now that The Witcher 3 is well and truly done, however, some are starting to worry that the game isn't as far along as they may have hoped.
Here's the first teaser trailer from 2013:
Cyberpunk 2077 Details
Adam Kiciński, president of CD Projekt Red, recently shared a little more information about Cyberpunk 2077.
Along with the usual comments regarding how Cyberpunk 2077 is a very technologically ambitious game, Kiciński stated that the team is theoretically "ready to interface with future generations" of gaming hardware. He also noted that the game will allow players to create their own characters and choose between various character classes. Previously, it had been suggested that the game wouldn't utilize RPG character classes.
While Kiciński noted that the team is focused on delivering a single-player experience above all, he did note that the team is still interested in utilizing some kind of online component. Kiciński wouldn't confirm, though, whether or not the studio is considering adding some kind of competitive multiplayer mode to the game or something a little different. However, the team does not plan to add any microtransactions to the game if it does end up featuring some kind of multiplayer option.
Finally, it doesn't sound like there are any plans in place for a Switch version of Cyberpunk 2077. Sorry, Nintendo fans.
CD Projekt Red also spoke briefly about the scope of the upcoming sci-fi RPG at a seminar (via PCGamer). As the developer has said before, Cyberpunk 2077 will be much bigger than The Witcher 3, which is itself a HUGE fantasy RPG.
"Cyberpunk is our new Witcher 3, but even more ambitious," CD Projekt CEO Adam Kicinski said. "Our goal is to establish a new blockbuster franchise from the beginning. We work [in a] new universe, futuristic universe. We believe it's very appealing to players, not only RPG players — but this is [a] true RPG, like Witcher, like Witcher 3, for mature audiences. It's handcrafted, detailed, of course, open-world, with open-ended gameplay.
Additional rumors have emerged which suggest that Cyberpunk 2077 might take place in a "living city" that functions on its own accord regardless of whether or not the player is actively involved in a certain area or not. The actions of this city will apparently be governed by a complex series of AI rules that will allow for developer CD Projekt Red to maintain the illusion of a truly dynamic world.
Furthermore, Cyberpunk 2077 may very well feature a complex multiplayer mode that involves the use of several technological tools and grants the developers have apparently applied for. When PC Gamer reached out to the developers for comment, they were told that CD Projekt Red have been applying for such tools but are not able to elaborate on their functionality at this time.
In a post on CD Projekt Red's forums, the developers not only assured fans that the game is still being worked on, but revealed a rather shocking figure concerning the resources they are pouring into it.
According to the forum post made by the development team, there are "more game developers working on Cyberpunk 2077 than on The Witcher 3 in its most intensive month." While the developer didn't reveal the exact number of developers currently working on the game, previously revealed figures regarding the development of The Witcher 3 suggest that the game was worked on by over 240 staff developers and over 1,500 people in general.
Interestingly enough, the careers page of CD Projekt Red's website suggests that they are still looking to fill somewhere in the neighborhood of 60 positions devoted exclusively to the development of Cyberpunk 2077.
While it's clear that the developer's work on the upcoming standalone Gwent game isn't hindering their focus as it concerns completing Cyberpunk 2077, there is a bit of bad news that accompanies this information. We still don't know exactly when Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be released, and its absence from last year's E3 suggests that it's not likely to debut until sometime after E3 2018 at the very earliest.
Either way, it's still very likely that you've got enough uncompleted side missions in The Witcher 3 to keep you occupied until the game debuts.
“Cyberpunk is far bigger than anything else that CD Projekt Red has done before,” visual effects artist Jose Teixeira told MCV. “Far, far bigger. We're really stepping into the unknown in terms of complexity and size and problems we encounter.”
Following a statement by developer CD Projekt Red regarding Cyberpunk's online elements and their "games as a service" approach, the studio has stepped forward to clarify that they do not currently intend to add microtransactions to the game.
"Worry not," reads a post on the studio's Twitter account. "When thinking CP2077, think nothing less than TW3 [The Witcher 3] — huge single player, open world, story-driven RPG. No hidden catch, you get what you pay for — no bullshit, just honest gaming like with Wild Hunt. We leave greed to others."
It's still unclear what the games as service comment applies to, but it could just be a comment related to the possibility that Cyberpunk may feature expanded online modes. That makes sense given that the game is based on modern and futuristic technology as opposed to The Witcher 3's fantasy setting.
Forza Horizon 4 looks to be the biggest Horizon game yet.
To the surprise of the easily surprised, Microsoft confirmed the development of Forza Horizon 4 at E3 2018.
As you might imagine, Forza Horizon 4 is the follow-up to Forza Horizon 3. Much like the previously released Forza Horizon titles, this game will ditch the psuedo-realistic vibes of the mainline Forza series in favor of a laid-back approach to the whole notion of video game racing.
Actually, the big showpiece for Forza Horizon 4 at E3 2018 was the way that it will allow players to race across both traditional road courses and decidedly untraditional countryside terrains. While that feature isn't new to the Forza Horizon series, the sheer variety of vehicles showcased during the game's reveal combined with the varied landscapes that said vehicles were racing across tends to suggest that Forza Horizon 4 is going to be a rather ambitious game in terms of the franchise's goals.
New this time around is the inclusion of a dynamic seasons system that will change both the visuals of a course and the way that you have to approach them. For instance, a road course during the summer might be a breeze but come winter, that same course will require a new breed of tactics (and possibly even a new vehicle).
Elsewhere, Forza Horizon 4's visuals suggest that the footage of the game showcased during the event was running on an Xbox One X. In any case, you can expect this to be an absolutely beautiful game when it launches on October 2 for all Xbox devices and PC. It will also be available via Game Pass on the day that it launches.
Granted, a new Forza Horizon game isn't the kind of jaw-dropping exclusive you might expect to see from PlayGround games now that they are a first-party developer, but we expect that they'll be working on some bigger projects for Microsoft in the years to come.
The zombie parkour open-world series from Techland is getting a sequel! Here's what you need to know about Dying Light 2...
Dying Light 2, the sequel to the beloved zombie parkour open-world RPG, has been announced by Techland. During E3 2018, it was also revealed that RPG legend Chris Avellone, who previously worked on Fallout: New Vegas and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, is working on Dying Light 2. Unsurprisingly, this sequel will have a bigger emphasis on decision-making, as you embark on missions for different factions. How you decide to handle certain situations will have huge consequences as you progress.
"The bold sequel to the open-world phenomenon, Dying Light 2 brings to life a unique post-apocalyptic vision of the Modern Dark Ages - a brutal, bleak and unforgiving reality where you are as likely to perish at the hand of a human as you are by the infected," said Techland in a press release. "In this exhausted world, your quick thinking, exceptional parkour abilities and brutal combat skills are the only things that let you dive into darkness and emerge alive. Make morally grey decisions and witness how they impact the world at multiple levels, shape the transformation of the City, and ultimately decide its fate."
The game is powered by the C-Engine, a new generation of Techland’s in-house technology dedicated to open-world action-adventure and action-RPG games.
"Dying Light 2 will be a truly bold sequel, combining the much loved Dying Light DNA with completely new ways to play," said Pawel Marchewka, Techland CEO. "For the first time in the franchise, players will have the power to decide the fate of a decaying metropolis with their own choices and actions. Across the story, the melee combat, the parkour movement, and other aspects of the game, we’re giving players a completely new level of freedom."

Cuphead returns with a new friend and more incredibly hard bosses.
Get ready for more Cuphead, because Microsoft has revealed the trailer for the first - and possibly only - Cuphead expansion at E3 2018. Here's your first look at Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course.
The biggest thing this expansion adds is a new playable character called Ms. Chalice. Unlike Cuphead and Mugman, Chalice is sporting quite a bit of bling on her head, leading us to believe she is likely a developer favorite. This expansion will also feature a brand-new island to explore, new levels to conquer, new weapons, and, of course, new bosses to lose to over and over again.
Given that the trailer featured a chef character known as Chef Saltbaker, we tend to believe that there's going to be some kind of food-related element to the game's world or plot. Of course, the "Last Course" title might just refer to this expansion's status as the final piece of new Cuphead content we'll get until the possible release of Cuphead 2.
There's no word on exactly when this expansion will be released or how much it will cost, but Cuphead fans will be able to download it sometime in 2019.
We're thrilled to see that Studio MDHR is working on more Cuphead content. Not only was the original Cuphead notoriously difficult to develop (you might remember it from many, many E3 presentations of the past), but there's a reasonable argument to be made that one of the most surprising hits of 2017 is also one of the absolute best exclusives available for the Xbox One. It's no surprise that Microsoft wants to deliver more of this stylish platform series.
Now, we just hope that we learn more about what bosses that we're going to be losing to in this expansion - and whether or not Studio MDHR is hard at work on a proper Cuphead sequel - in the coming months as more information on this expansion becomes available.
Just Cause 4 is on the way. Here's the first trailer, release date, and everything else you need to know...
Avalanche Studios is unleashing Just Cause 4 - another sandbox game full of action, absurdly large explosions, and over-the-top stunts. The game was officially announced at E3 2018, although the title was leaked weeks before Avalanche ever hit the big stage.
The leaks came via Walmart and Steam. Both jumped the gun a bit ahead of E3. Walmart Canada posted an online listing for the game. Steam published promotional image on its software listings. The promo, showing series hero Rico Rordiguez staring at a stormy sky and inviting users to "pre-purchase now," is something Avalanche didn't want us all to see before E3.
Here's everything else we know about game:
Just Cause 4 Trailer
Here's the debut trailer for Just Cause 4:
Just Cause 4 Release Date
Just Cause 4 will be released on Dec. 4, 2018. The game is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
This turn-based title is a new look for the Gears of War series.
Gears of War is being turned into a strategy title called Gears Tactics.
While Microsoft didn't reveal much information about the game at E3 2018, we've since learned that Gears Tactics is a turn-based strategy game that takes place in the Gears of War universe. Based on the information that is currently available, we believe that it will end up looking more like the recent XCOM games than it will resemble Microsoft's other strategy spin-off, Halo Wars.
Having said that, Microsoft has promised that this game will feature several Gears of War trademarks that include brutal battles, some familiar faces, a variety of classic Gears enemies, even massive bosses to take down. What's unclear is how all of that will fit into the game's still mysterious turn-based mechanics.
What's especially interesting about Gears Tactics, though, is where it fits into the series timeline. Gears Tactics will reportedly take place 12 years before the events of the first Gears of Wars game. That means that you can expect it to shed some light on the events that led to the escalation of the Gears of War conflict.
At present, it seems that Gears Tactics is being developed by Splash Damage; the team responsible for Gears of War 4's multiplayer as well as the multiplayer of games of like Doom 3 and Batman: Arkham Origins. While they don't really have much formal experience developing strategy games, it's clear that Microsoft's trusts their ability to capture the spirit and tropes of the Gears franchise. Their experience also tends to suggest that this title will feature a multiplayer component.
There's actually no word regarding an Xbox release for Gears Tactics as it appears to be a PC-only title at this time. However, we will be sure to update you on the status of this game as more information on it becomes available.
Gears of War is getting a mobile game, but it's nothing like what you'd expect...
A new Gears of Warmobile game is coming from Microsoft in collaboration with Pop Toys. It's a surprising mix of Gears' violent brand of action and Pop's chibi-like toys. It's definitely not something we expected to ever see from the franchise, but the E3 2018 announcement does a good job of showing that the concept is kinda cute.
Here's the adorable announcement trailer:
Marcus Fenix and Kait Diaz will both be featured in the game as well as the Pop versions of a few Locust soldiers. That's about all we know about Gears Popat the moment. The game will be available in 2019 and is coming for iOS and Android.
Meanwhile, Microsoft also announced two other Gears games. Gears Tactics is a strategy game that brings turn-based XCOM RTS gameplay to the Gears world. It takes place 12 years before the first game and appears to be a PC exclusive at the moment. We'll have to wait and see if this will in fact be an cross-platform title with the Xbox One.
The biggest announcement of all is Gears of War 5, which continues the story of Kait Diaz and Marcus Fenix as they face off against the Swarm. This sequel will be out in 2019, as well.
Stay tuned for more Gears and much more E3 news at Den of Geek!
Can Rage 2 realize the promises of the original game? Here's everything we know!
Nobody was quite sure what to make of the reports that a sequel to Rage was in the works. While Rage was a fairly well-received shooter, it didn't set the world on fire or establish much of a fanbase for the franchise.
Nevertheless, Rage 2 is now official, and we're honestly incredibly intrigued by what we've seen of it. Developed by id Software and Mad Max developer Avalanche Studios, the next Rage game looks to combine open-world wasteland exploration with the trademark quality action that we've come to expect from id Software games. On top of that is a bizarre vision of the end of the world that includes a large number of themed gangs doing battle over what precious resources remain.
In other words, it sounds like we're going to be getting the unofficial Mad Max game adaptation that we've been dreaming of for years.
Here's everything that we know about Rage 2:
Rage 2 News
E3 2018 brought us our first look at Rage 2's gameplay. This exciting upcoming game looks to combine the shooting of Doom and the open-world brilliance of Mad Max. Take a look:
Rage 2 Release Date
There's no release date available for Rage 2, but it seems that the plan is for the game to launch sometime in 2019. Bethesda has promised to reveal more about the title during E3 2018.
Rage 2 Trailer
The first gameplay trailer for Rage 2 confirms this surprising sequel is basically going to be a glorious love letter to the Mad Max franchise.
In case you missed it, here is the live-action trailer that officially introduced the world to Rage 2.
Rage 2 Details
Id Software boss Tim Willits informed GameStar that Rage 2 will not feature loot boxes or live service elements.
Actually, Willits joked about the game's novel approach to revenue by stating that players will be able to buy the game and just play it. Bethesda later confirmed to USGamer that the game will not feature loot boxes or live service elements, but there's no word on whether or not the game will feature any post-release DLC content (whether it be free or premium).
Prey: Mooncrash brings rogue-like gameplay to the the sci-fi shooter. Here's the first trailer plus more details...
Sci-fi horror fans begging for more experiences like System Shock and BioShock got the highly anticipated Prey reboot last year. While there's much to be said about how those influences play off this creepy space adventure, Prey is still very much a worthwhile entry in the shrinking lineup of recent story-focused, single-player games.
For those of you hoping to return to the world of Morgan Yu and the Typhon, Bethesda announced a new DLC called Prey: Mooncrash during its E3 2018. The DLC brings rogue-like gameplay to Prey. It focuses on randomly generated levels with randomized enemies and items with each playthrough.
Mooncrash is out today!
Check out the announcement trailer below:
As PC Gamer pointed out, there's definitely precedent for a visit on the Moon. There's a reference in the game to a Pytheas facility that "sits deep in a crater on the Lunar pole, permanently shadowed and surrounded by kilometers of ice." It may very well be this facility that players will be exploring in the expansion.
Arkane Studios also announced a new multiplayer mode coming later this summer. It's called Typhon Hunter, a 5v1 mode where one player tries to survive the onslaught of five shape-shifting enemies.
Preydropped a year ago, so it might be surprising to some to see Arkane dropping new content this late in the game, but there's precedent for that, too. After all, the studio released The Death of the Outsider expansion about a year after the debut of Dishonored 2.
We'll keep you updated on Preyas we learn more!
Bethesda has announced its first new IP in 25 years. The game is called Starfield, a single-player space RPG.
Those fans hoping that Bethesda Game Studios would one day go to space are finally getting their wish. The developer announced at E3 2018 that it's working on a next-gen space RPG called Starfield. The game explores a whole new setting for Bethesda, which is best known for its postapocalyptic and fantasy settings.
Starfield is the first new IP from Bethesda in 25 years. Not much else is known about the game except that it's going to be a while before we actually get to play this game.
Here's the debut trailer:
Starfield has been the talk of the internet for the last few years. Ever since banners for the RPG leaked on the internet, Bethesda fans have speculated about the game's existence. It's no secret that Bethesda Game Studios hasn't explored an RPG outside of its comfort zone for quite some time. To bring its classic RPG gameplay to space is for Bethesda to explore where it hasn't gone before.
The game closed out a big show for Bethesda. The company announced new games or expansions for every major franchise in its roster. It'll be hard for the remaining publishers to top Bethesda's E3 presentation.
We'll keep you updated as we learn more about Starfield!
Fallout 76 is the next entry in the postapocalyptic series. Here's everything we know about the game, including release date and trailers!
Fallout 76is the next entry in the Fallout series from Bethesda Game Studios. Based on a brief teaser, the game is set in 2102 and centers around a survivor from Vault 76. The story takes place in the hills of West Virginia. You play as one of the first survivors to leave a vault in the aftermath of the nuclear war that turned the planet into a wasteland. It'll be your job to rebuild civilization.
This sequel is actually an online survival RPG in the same vein as Rust and DayZ. The game, which reportedly began as a multiplayer mode for Fallout 4, will feature quests and a story as well as base-building mechanics. Bethesda confirmed at E3 2018 that the game is four times the size of Fallout 4.

The Elder Scrolls goes mobile in this surprisingly promising new game.
The next Elder Scrolls game set to be released is something that we absolutely did not expect. Here's your first look at Elder Scrolls: Blades, a free-to-play mobile game designed to resemble console Elder Scrolls experiences.
We're quite serious, even though we're having as hard of a time believing it as you are. Based on the information that was shared during the E3 presentation, this game will actually resemble a proper Elder Scrolls title in many ways. It sees you play as a member of the fabled Blades (the top agents of the Empire) whose home has been destroyed by unknown forces. As you wander from the only home you've ever known, you encounter an epic adventure that makes up the bulk of this experience.
It seems that most of this game will take place in first-person, but there is still some kind of character creation game available (even if you're not always able to see your character). You can control the game either by tapping on the screen to move your character or by using virtual dual joysticks.
Gameplay-wise, there's quite a bit to do in Blades. Along with a more standard adventure that sees you explore the world and a series of hand-designed dungeons (similar to the hand-crafted dungeons seen in Skyrim) it seems that you'll also be able to participate in a rougelike mode that features an endless variety of randomly generated dungeons that you must wander until your character falls. On top of that, Bethesda teased the inclusion of some kind of town building mode that lets you design and grow your very own settlement in this world.
While Bethesda teased the appearance of Blades on every major platform - including VR - it seems that it will arrive on mobile devices first. So far as that goes, you can pre-purchase the game (even though it will be free-to-play) by visiting this website. Doing so will allow you to play the game early. Everyone else will need to wait for Blades' formal release sometime during the fall.
While this isn't the Elder Scrolls game that we were waiting for (that would be this one) it's a pretty cool take on the franchise that looks far more substantial than the average mobile title.
Sekiro, the mysterious new title from the developers of Dark Souls, is a mythical samurai adventure. Here's the debut trailer...
FromSoftware's mysterious new title is called Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
The teaser trailer shown during the E3 2018 Xbox conference indicates that this game will be set in a kind of samurai-themed world filled with mythical monsters and human enemies. The action indicates that the game will not be a stealth-based title like Tenchu, but will instead utilize at least the amount of action that we are used to seeing in the Dark Souls series.
As FromSoftware has said that this game is not related to the Souls universe, though, we suspect that there will not be a ton of similarities between the two properties.
That does leave us wondering about the meaning of the "Shadows Die Twice" line, though. In the trailer, we see what appears to be our protagonist resurrected after falling in battle. That seems to suggest that this game will do something special with player death like we've seen in the Dark Souls series, but how this idea of a resurrection will factor into the final game is unknown at this time.
The good news is that Sekiro is certainly going all-in on the samurai/ninja theme that we saw in the Souls-like title, Nioh. It's actually not that often that we get games set in that kind of universe, and with no new Onimushagame on the horizon (yet), we'll gladly take whatever excuse we can get to explore a mythical world with our samurai sword by our side. It's also nice to see FromSoftware return to this universe given that a lot of their early games utilized a similar theme.
We're still waiting for more details on Sekiro, but as it was not billed as an Xbox exclusive, it seems likely that the game will be available for PS4 and possibly PC as well whenever it is released. The game will be published by Activision.
Battletoads, the series that broke a million controllers, returns next year.
Get ready to call your local pawn shop and annoy them with an outdated meme, because there's a new Battletoads game in development.
In the grand tradition of games quickly revealed during E3, we don't know much about the next Battletoads game at this time (it's all about those sizzle reels). In fact, we can't actually verify that Rare is working on this game, but we'd be shocked if that wasn't the case.
However, the first trailer for this project does confirm that the next Battletoads game will support three-player couch co-op (which suggests that a new toad will not be added to the original game's trio), will feature hand-drawn graphics, and will be released in 2019. It will also, naturally, be an Xbox exclusive, but we're not sure if that exclusivity applies to a possible PC release.
The trailer's snarky humor also suggests that this game won't be taking itself too seriously (which makes sense) and that it might feature the return of those damn impossible vehicle levels that made a generation of gamers turn to hard drugs and is believed to be the second most prolific source of PTSD outside of the Vietnam war. However, we're waiting on confirmation of both those features.
It's been a long time since we've received a proper new Battletoads game. The last Battletoads title was 1994's Battletoads Arcade; a pretty standard beat-'em-up that reportedly didn't do that well at arcades but is considered to be a pretty fun title by series fans.
Of course, the jewel of the Battletoads crown is the 1991 NES title that became infamous for its brutal difficulty level, interesting combat, and fun art style. Let's see if this new game can recapture that title's nostalgic magic.
Everything you need to know about Shadow of the Tomb Raider, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!
This new installment won't be developed by longtime Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics. Instead, Eidos Montreal, the studio behind the Deus Ex series, is taking over production of Shadow the Tomb Raider. It remains to be seen how a new studio will bring a fresh approach to the series.
It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that there is a new Tomb Raider in the works. After all, Square Enix's reboot of the franchise has been tremendously successful in terms of critical acclaim and market success. The recent Tomb Raider games have been praised for their strong narratives and clever reimaginings of classic Tomb Raider tropes.
It's not going to be easy to replicate the accomplishments of those titles, but at a time when the Uncharted series is likely taking a break for the foreseeable future, Lara Croft's return will be a welcome one indeed.

Wolfenstein goes co-op in this upcoming action game, Youngblood. Here's the first trailer and release date...
Bethesda has revealed that there are two new Wolfenstein games in development. The first is a title known as Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
While this isn't the next mainline Wolfenstein game - there's still no word regarding whether or not we'll be treated to a Wolfenstein III - it is a fascinating "spin-off" of sorts that is primarily meant to be played as a co-op shooter. Yes, Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a co-op shooter that lets you play as B.J. Blazkowicz's daughters as they shoot their way through an alternate version of 1980's Paris.
This does seemingly make Youngblood a psuedo- sequel to the events we saw in Wolfenstein II, but it's not entirely clear whether or not this game will touch upon the story threads that were left lingering by Wolfenstein II. Instead, it appears that this game will tell a story that more of its own.
The good news is that Youngblood is being developed by the folks at Machine Games (who have been responsible for the modern Wolfenstein games we've enjoyed thus far) and that you'll be able to play it by yourself in some form if you aren't able to find a friend to stick with you until the end. It also seems like Machine Games is planning on releasing the game for major platforms sometime in 2019.
We, unfortunately, know less about the other Wolfenstein game on the horizon, but we can tell you that it is a VR title called Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot where you play a hacker who is trying to turn the Nazis' own machinery against them. There's no word on when this game will be released or which VR platforms it will be available for.
Even though we'd love to hear something about the next mainline Wolfensteingame, these projects look like fun deviations from the norm that should manage to kill the time until we get our hands on what figures to be the final game in the mainline Wolfensteinreboot series.
