    Everything you need to know about Darksiders 3, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!

    News Matthew Byrd
    Sep 27, 2018

    Darksiders 3  will cast players into the role of a mage named Fury who uses a whip and magical abilities to fight various forms of evil. Fury is a member of the franchise's Four Horsemen and is described as "unpredictable and enigmatic." The first two Darksiders games featured two other members of the mythical Four Horsemen (War and Death), so this character description does seem to fit the design of the series. 

    The sequel is an "open-ended, living, free-form game" that will require players to use Fury's skills in order to defeat the seven deadly sins. The product description and various screenshots also make note of the game's retention of the franchise's signature art style. 

    The history of the Darksiders franchise has always been fascinating from a development perspective. It was originally conceived by THQ as a hack-and-slash action/adventure title with gothic horror elements. The second game expanded upon many of the elements the first title established but mostly served to give players more of the same. 

    Both Darksiders games received a good deal of acclaim from those who played them but were always seen as fundamentally flawed experiences that exhibited more potential than they realized. When THQ shut down, Darksiders was still seen as one of their most valuable former properties. That's hardly a surprise given just how much the franchise's fans love these games. 

    With the franchise now in the hands of THQ Nordic, it will be interesting to see if they are able to fully realize the potential of the game's formula. 

    Here's everything else we know about Darksiders 3:

    Everything you need to know about Skull and Bones, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!

    Sep 27, 2018

    Were you one of many gamers who played Assassin's Creed: Black Flag's ship sections and thought, "Why doesn't Ubisoft just turn this into a game?" Well, it appears that Ubisoft heard that very valid question. 

    Skull and Bones can't exactly be described as a continuation of Black Flag. While the two share many pirate aspects (we'll never tire of hearing our crew sing a shanty) Skull and Bones seems to place a far greater emphasis on multiplayer gameplay, but it's still not clear what the extent of the game's single-player offerings is. 

    The game will allow you to assemble an online crew and participate in 5 v 5 battles with rival pirates in ship-to-ship combat sections. While sinking the enemy is certainly a plus, the true goal here seems to be to collect as much sweet, sweet loot as you can while also vanquishing your foes. It's not entirely clear at this time whether or not you and other players will be able to assume multiple roles on the ship or how that system of role management will work, but it does appear that much of the action will take place on the open waters. 

    Here's everything else we know about the game:

    Skull and Bones News 

    E3 2018 actually brought us two new trailers for Skull and Bones. The first is a cinematic preview that explores the game's rich universe. 

    The second, though, is an extensive gameplay preview that gives us our best look yet at what Skull and Bones will actually play like. Based on the footage shown at the event, it appears that you'll be able to command your own ship in Skull and Bones, but the seas you sail will be populated by other players doing the same. There will be several ways to interact with those other players that include blowing them up or using them to take down powerful enemies. 

    Skull and Bones Release Date

    Skull and Bones has been delayed until 2019 or even 2020 according to the latest Ubisoft earnings report. The delay is attributed to the scope of the experience as well as the studio's desire to expand the lore of the in-game world

    Here is the first trailer for Skull and Bones:

    This interview video posted by Ubisoft also hints at the game's RPG mechanics and the way that you'll be able to upgrade your ship and crew as you gain gold and infamy.

    Everything you need to know about Metro Exodus, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!

    News Matthew Byrd
    Sep 27, 2018

    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 News

    A new trailer for Metro Exodus has arrived ahead of Gamescom 2018! Check it out below:

    Metro Exodus Release Date

    Metro Exodus has been delayed to 2019. It is coming to XBO, PS4, and PC.

    Here's that awesome trailer that was revealed during Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference. 

    A previous trailer premiered at The Game Awards 2017. Check it out below:

    And here's the reveal trailer for Metro Exodus

    Metro Exodus Details

    The latest issue of Game Informer reveals some new information about Metro Exodus

    It seems that Exodus will start in the fabled Metro but will quickly allow players to explore a much larger outdoor setting. However, Exodus is not an open-world game. It's a series of large, objective-based levels that can be freely explored but are tied together by a narrative. The catch is that you can't return to an area after you've completed the main objectives in a given level. That means you'll want to take care of any sidequests first.

    The series' combat and stealth mechanics will receive an overhaul as part of this new emphasis on exploration. There's no word on exactly how they will be changed, but it seems the studio is aiming for general improvements. Furthermore, the traditional hub area from previous Metro games will return in the form of a train called the Aurora that will follow you between most levels. Players will also be able to access several smaller vehicles. 

    Finally, it seems that Exodus' story will take place across the course of an entire year. Previous Metro games occurred over just a few days.  

    All and all, it sounds like Exodus will make some pretty bold changes to the series' formula. We just hope it maintains some of the distinctive design elements that make the Metro franchise a special - if overlooked - gaming experience.

    What you need to know about GTFO, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!

    News Matthew Byrd
    Sep 27, 2018

    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 GTFO:

    GTFO Release Date

    GTFO is set to release on PC sometime in 2018. 

    GTFO Trailer

    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.

    What you need to know about Mega Man 11, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!

    News Matthew Byrd
    Sep 27, 2018

    Mega Man 11 seems to combine retro game design and slightly modern looks. It adopts a kind of cel-shaded visual style similar to what we saw in Mighty No. 9, but it's already clear that the game runs far smoother than that much-maligned project. It also does a better job of upgrading the spirit of the old Mega Man titles in terms of their aesthetics. That spirit is evident in this previously leaked concept art for Mega Man's new look. 

    So far as Mega Man 11's gameplay goes, Capcom indicated that they are aiming to recreate the classic gameplay of Mega Man titles gone by. While that certainly speaks to the basic gameplay of the series - run, jump, beat bosses, and upgrade your weapons - some fans no doubt hope that it also means the return of Mega Man's punishing style of gameplay. After all, Cuphead became a huge success in 2017 largely off the back of incredibly tough Mega Man-like gameplay (and, of course, that game's art style). 

    Here's everything we know about Mega Man 11:

    Mega Man 11 Release Date

    News Matthew ByrdJohn Saavedra
    Sep 27, 2018

    Yoshi's Crafted World, the beloved dinosaur's new adventure for the Nintendo Switch, is based on a fairly fascinating gimmick involving the depth of stages. Basically, Yoshi is able to move in-between and interact with background and foreground elements that would usually be considered static in many such platforming titles. There are numerous instances of this mechanic being utilized during the trailer, but some of the most fascinating examples of this dynamic mechanic involved Yoshi attacking enemies in the foreground and flipping a stage at will to reveal brand new paths that simply looked like background objects before. 

    It certainly doesn't hurt that the game's vibrant art style contributes to the storybook nature of the level design and the use of this flip mechanic. The Switch may not be a technical powerhouse, but games like this showcase why a bright color palette and creative design will sometimes best pure processing power.

    Indeed, Yoshi's Crafted World may very well be the game for Switch fans who still harbor a deep love for classic platformers. While Super Mario Odyssey promotes a more open-world take on the platformer genre, Yoshi's Crafted World looks like the kind of classic platforming experience that we might have dreamed of as kids if we could dream quite as big as game's clearly imaginative development team.

    The highly anticipated third installment in the main Kingdom Hearts series has been in development since at least 2012. First announced at E3 2013, it's been a long journey for this Disney-Final Fantasy mashup. There's some indication from Square Enix that Kingdom Hearts III will finally see the light of day in 2018, but only time will tell!

    Until then, Square Enix hasn't been shy about slowly revealing some of the incredible Disney inspired worlds included in the upcoming game. From Toy Story to Monsters Inc., Kingdom Hearts 3 looks to explore nearly every aspect of the Disney universe while delivering an incredibly compelling RPG in the tradition of previous Kingdom Hearts adventures. 

    Here's everything we know about the game:

    Kingdom Hearts 3 will arrive on Jan. 29, 2019. It's coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    The PlayStation E3 2018 conference included a special preview of Kingdom Hearts 3 that focuses on the game's Pirates of the Carribean world. 

    This trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3 serves as a cinematic rundown of the stories and worlds that we've seen from the game thus far. Included is a brief look at a few new environments and what seems to be a glimpse at the sequel's basic plot. 

    This next trailer showcases what is being referred to as Classic Kingdom. However, reports indicate that the Game and Watch footage included in the trailer doesn't pertain to an entire kingdom, but rather a collection of classic minigames featured throughout the adventure. 

    This trailer introduces the world of Monsters Inc. to the series. Check it out below:

    Additionally, Disney showed off a trailer that confirms a world based on the Toy Story films will make an appearance sometime during Kingdom Hearts 3's campaign. Characters like Woody and Buzz will also make an appearance as party heroes during your time in this new world.

    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. 

    Can Platinum do it again? Well, based on their history of meeting and surpassing expectations, we have a pretty good feeling that they'll find a way to live up their promises of delivering a game that raises the bar.

    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

    In Witchfire, 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.

    Few people expected Valve's next game to be a collectible card title based on the Dota 2 universe, but that's exactly what we have in Artifact

    Before you roll your eyes, though, you might want to use them to take a closer look at this game. Artifact isn't like any other CCG out there. Actually, it's kind of like a version of Dota 2 that you play with cards instead of with heroes and teammates. Artifact's implementation of Dota 2staples like lanes of battle, heroes, and in-game markets is made all the more fascinating by the fact that the title also boasts some traditional - albeit hardcore - CCG elements. Of course, that last part shouldn't be a surprise given that the game was at least partially designed by Magic: The Gathering creator, Richard Garfield. It will be fascinating to see what that creative team comes up with. 

    Here's everything that we know about Artifact

    Artifact Release Date

    Valve has announced that Artifact's beta will begin in October. While they confirmed that everyone in attendance at The International will receive a copy of the game alongside access to the beta (those who play the game at PAX West will receive the same), they did not confirm what day the beta will begin or whether or not it will be an open or closed beta. 

    The PC version of Artifact is set to release on November 28. The mobile version of the game is expected to release sometime in 2019. 

    Artifact News

    PC Gamer has released a full breakdown of how Valve's Artifactcard game will work. It's a lot of information to take in, but here's what you need to know:

    Artifact has you build a deck of 40 cards that contains five heroes. The base game will include 280+ cards and 44 heroes. You can't have more than three of any type of non-hero card in your deck. 

    Gameplay sees you essentially play across three different boards designed to strategically resemble Dota 2's lanes. Each lane has its own mana pool, heroes, and a tower. Lose that tower, and a much stronger Ancient appears. If you manage to either kill an Ancient or if your opponent loses two towers, you win the game. 

    Complicating all of this is the presence of creeps in all lanes that heroes must battle as well as some truly in-depth mechanics that require you to manage the resources of all lanes using the same deck of cards. Fortunately, your resources are bolstered by the ability to earn gold whenever you destroy an opponent's cards and use that gold to buy items from the store that your heroes can equip. Heroes can never be permanently killed, but they can be taken out of action for a round. 

    Valve seems to be aware that this multi-lane style of CCG play creates a lot of complications, but they are embracing those complications. It seems like Artifact is mostly going to appeal to veteran CCG players or those that are willing to learn an entirely different style of game. Hearthstone this is not. 

    Speaking of Hearthstone, Valve is already planning on separating Artifact from that game by reducing the amount of randomness in matches and by allowing players to trade cards via Steam's marketplace. That last one is a huge deal as it could drastically impact both gameplay and the costs of Artifact in the long run. Indeed, Valve has stated they do not want Artifact to be a pay-to-win experience. 

    It all sounds fascinating, and Artifact might end up being extremely appealing to those who demand more complexity from CCG titles.

    Here's the teaser trailer that formally introduced Artifact to the world.

    Anthem is the new game from BioWare, the studio behind Mass Effect and Dragon Age. The new IP is a departure from the developer's past work in the RPG genre. In fact, Anthem isn't an RPG at all. It's described as an action-adventure game running on a "live service," similar to Destiny

    In Anthem, you play as a freelancer in a city protected by a wall from the dangers of the wild. Freelancers use special exo-suits called Javelins. There are two types of suits: Ranger, a balanced suit, and Colossus, which is basically your tank version. 

    Here's everything we know so far:

    Anthem Release Date

    Anthem will be released on February 22, 2019, for XBO, PS4, and PC.

    And here's a bit of gameplay:

    Here's the first gameplay trailer for Anthem:

    Also be sure to check out the first teaser trailer for the studio's next game:

    Anthem Details

    When EA executive vice president Patrick Söderlund hinted during an investor’s call that BioWare was working on a new IP, many fans assumed that they were working on a new PRG. However, that's not the case.

    During a recent investor meeting, EA CEO Andrew Wilson referenced BioWare’s next IP by confirming that: “At the end of the fiscal year, our BioWare studio will be delivering an all-new IP.” Interestingly, he had this to say regarding the game itself:

    "A clean-sheet design with new concepts, new gameplay mechanics, and new stories set in a unique new universe. This game has the potential to fundamentally disrupt the way people think about an action title, bringing friends together to play in exhilarating new ways. We’re very excited about the future of this new franchise and its ability to attract a large global audience."

    The one term that Wilson did not use when describing the game was “RPG.” Given that BioWare and RPG go together like Nintendo and sequels to 30-year-old properties, this comes as quite the shock. BioWare general manager Aaryn Flynn later took to the studio’s blog to expand on Wilson’s comments by stating that the project is designed to “bring players together in exciting new ways” and that their ambition is to "draw upon 20+ years of development knowledge and lessons to create something fun and new for you to enjoy with your friends.”

    A non-RPG is certainly a departure from BioWare’s usual development territory, but given that they’ve been evolving their combat systems over the years to be more action-oriented, perhaps this is a natural evolution of the company’s design style.

    Wilson also stated that he is able to describe the game as more of an action-adventure title with RPG elements that will operate off of some kind of live service. This seems to indicate some kind of online multiplayer experience. Indeed, it seems that this delay is at least partially due to EA's desire to develop that service a little while longer.

    Multiplayer wise, Battlefield V doesn't change the series formula too much. The big new addition is a 64-player Grand Operations mode that utilizes several different play modes in order to tell a multiplayer narrative. It's essentially an expansion of the Operations mode seen in Battlefield 1. There's also a Combined Arms 4-player co-op mode that allows players to participate in procedurally generated missions. Generally speaking, Battlefield V places a much greater emphasis on squad play and encourages players to join squads. 

    Minor multiplayer changes include the ability to revive your teammates regardless of what class you're playing (and drag them to cover), the ability to tow stationary guns with vehicles, and a new prone option that lets you lay on your back. 

    It's also been confirmed that there will be no Premium Pass in the game. While that doesn't seem to discount the possibility that there might be loot boxes in the game, the Battlefield V developers did indicate that player progress will largely be earned by playing the game. Said progress includes new abilities that allow you to fortify the area of play with sandbags, walls, and other structures. Ammo conservation and weapon selection will also reportedly play a larger role in the game. Those weapons will be affected by new bullet penetration physics and the elimination of randomized bullet deviation.

    The Battlefield V Twitter account has also revealed a new mode called Airborne. The premise of this mode is that players will need to parachute onto the battlefield when they respawn. It seems that there will be an attacking team who need to take down anti-aircraft measures when they're on the ground and a defending team who are trying to keep the guns operational in order to fend off the airborne invaders. 

    Battlefield 5 Tides of War

    DICE has expanded upon how The Tides of War will work. In a new blog post, the developer describes Tides of War as a "catch-all" term used to describe Battlefield V's "true journey" through World War II. Based on their description of the idea, it seems that Tides of War will function as kind of an on-going content experience that will change every few months. For instance, the first batch of Tides of War content is titled Fall of Europe and will include special events such as multi-week grand operations and special assignments. 

    Despite the changes introduced by these events, players will be able to keep the same company (essentially a faction or guild) and complete all associated events with them throughout the entire Tides of War run.

    DICE reiterated that soldiers are fully-customizable this time around and noted that XP can be earned in multiplayer and co-op modes and then used to unlock new class specialization archetypes. It seems that new archetypes will be added to the game via Tides of War updates. 

    We'll bring you more information on this mode as it becomes available.

    Everything you need to know about Rage 2, including latest news, release date, trailers, and more!

    News Matthew Byrd
    Sep 27, 2018

    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 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 Rage 2 QuakeCon trailer is here! Check it out below:

    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:

    Here are the first two trailers:

    Rage 2 Multiplayer

    New information reveals that Rage 2 will feature multiplayer but won't include heavy social elements. 

    In an interview with Eurogamer, id Software studio director Tim Willits said that Rage 2 won't feature "typical multiplayer" in terms of its social aspects. While he doesn't share the full details of Rage 2's multiplayer, he does note that you won't just be "running around together with your friends" in the game. We tend to think that suggests a more "classic" deathmatch multiplayer mode (or at least the option to play such a mode). 

    Willits also stops short of revealing how Rage 2's DLC and live service elements will work, but he does suggest that it will include a mix of free updates and premium content. Unfortunately, he could not say for sure whether Rage 2 would feature loot boxes or other microtransactions. 

    Rage 2 Microtransactions

    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).

    What we know about Metroid Prime 4, including latest news, trailers, and more!

    News Matthew Byrd
    Sep 27, 2018

    After years of Nintendo dancing around fans' pleas for a new Metroid game, the studio finally decided to drop a humble reveal for one of the most anticipated games of the last ten years right in the middle of their E3 2017 showcase. What a truly Nintendo way to make such an announcement.  

    Since the announcement of this project, Nintendo has confirmed that Retro Studios will not be handling the development of this new Metroid title. Instead, they have stated that the development is being handled by a "talented new development team.”

    According to Eurogamer, that studio is none other than Bandai Namco Studios Singapore, which is collaborating with Nintendo on the new game. However, Metroid producer Kensuke Tanabe will be overseeing the development of this new title.

    Here's everything else we know about the game:

    Metroid Prime 4 Release Date

    There is currently no release date for Metroid Prime 4. The game is coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch.

    Metroid Prime 4 Trailer

    On the list of games that could possibly show up at E3 2017, Metroid Prime4 ranked somewhere alongside Half-Life 3. Nevertheless, here is the first preview for Metroid Prime 4.

    Unfortunately, the reveal of Metroid Prime 4 doesn't actually tell us anything about the game itself aside from the fact that it is being worked on. However, given that most people had already given up hope that a new Metroid game would ever be released for the Nintendo Switch, we're going to go ahead and name this one of the best announcements of E3 2017.

    What we know about The Last of Part 2, including latest news, release date, trailers, and much more!

    News Matthew ByrdJohn Saavedra
    Sep 27, 2018

    Yes, one of the greatest games of the previous console generation is getting a sequel. Fans hoped that Naughty Dog might find a way to return to the world of The Last of Us, but the nature of the original game's ending left some to speculate that the developers had said all there was to say about the adventure of Ellie and Joel. 

    It's not entirely clear exactly what the story will be this time around, but the ominous and fearful tone of Ellie's looming threats suggest that this will be a story of revenge. The recipient of said revenge seems to be fairly obvious based on context clues in the trailer, but in the interest of not completely outlining the ending of the original game, we will not speculate on their identity here.

    Speculation is all we have as it concerns the release date for The Last of Us Part II, however. It appears that the game is still very much in development, which means you shouldn't hope to see it before late next year at the earliest. Neil Druckman, the title's creative director, took to the PlayStation Blog to clarify that the eventual release of the game could be "a ways off," and to assure fans that Naughty Dog is only making a sequel to this game because they feel they have a new story that is worth telling. 

    Well, we're sold. Here's everything we know about The Last of Us Part II:

    The Last of Us Part 2 Release Date

    The Last of Us 2 doesn't have a release date as of yet. We expect Sony to reveal that information at E3 2018. 

    The Last of Us Part 2 Trailer

    At the Sony E3 2018 conference, we were treated to a brilliant and highly cinematic - also possibly very scripted - gameplay sequence from The Last of Us Part 2. Check it out now. 

    Here's another trailer:

    Next, feast your eyes on the reveal trailer for The Last of Us Part II:

    The Last of Us Part 2 Story

    At PSX 2016, Naughty Dog director and writer Neil Druckmann shared the first bits of Last of Us Part 2 story details, including what the focus will be in the sequel. Druckmann revealed that Ellie is the star of this installment and that the game takes place several years after the original. Ellie is 19-years-old in The Last of Us Part 2

    Druckmann talked a bit about the tone and direction of the sequel's story, saying that while the original was a story about love, "[Part 2] is about hate." He also confirmed that this game will exclusively continue the story of Ellie and Joel instead of jumping to other characters.

    It looks like The Last of Us Part 2 will have a couple of connections with Westworld. It's been revealed that Halley Gross, a writer on the show, will be co-writing the game's story with Neil Druckmann, who wrote the first game. 

    Additionally, Westword actress Shannon Woodward will have a role in the game. No details on her character were revealed. Her casting was revealed in a tweet:

    It's also been revealed that Bruce Straley, who directed the first game, will not return for the sequel. Instead, Druckmann will be directing the game. 

    The Last of Us Part 2 Music

    Writer/director Neil Druckmann confirmed that Gustavo Santaolalla, the composer of The Last of Us' wonderful score, will also create the music for the sequel. 

    The Last of Us Part 2 Poster

    In celebration of Outbreak Day - the day in The Last of Us when the world fell apart - Naughty Dog has released some promotional materials and free items related to the game. You can read a full breakdown of the announcement (which includes information regarding a new The Last of Us t-shirt and PS4 theme) via this PlayStation blog post

    However, there is one Outbreak Day release we do have to highlight. The fine folks at Mondo have teamed up with Naughty Dog and artist Kevin Tong to release a new poster that seems to be related to The Last of Us Part 2. It's a fairly stunning design that serves as a callback to the previous Mondo The Last of Us poster and an effective teaser. 

    You can buy the poster from Mondo's website starting today.

    Sep 27, 2018

    Doom Eternal is the newest installment in the hit first-person shooter series. The sequel to the 2016 reboot is everything you loved about its predecessor with a few added tweaks, including a few new demons to turn into gruesome meaty chunks! Here's everything we know about the game thus far:

    Doom Eternal Trailer

    Bethesda revealed the first look at Doom Eternal's INSANE gameplay at QuakeCon 2018. Check out the trailer below:

    And here's the announcement trailer:

    Doom Eternal Release Date

    No release date has been set for Doom Eternal. The game is expected to arrive for XBO, PS4, and PC. 

    Doom Eternal Gameplay Details

    The first gameplay footage of Doom Eternal reveals that it is very much a follow-up to 2016's Doom

    While many of the game's features remain the same as they were in that modern classic, there are a few things featured in Eternal which should help keep the overall experience feeling fresh. The biggest of said features is the ability to invade other player's games and have your game invaded by other players. The details of this system haven't been fully revealed at this time, but the team did reveal you will be able to assemble a party of demons to try and take down a player controlling the Doom Guy (a.k.a. the slayer). You are also able to disable this feature if you wish to do so. 

    It also seems that the Doom Guy will be much agiler this time around. Along with the ability to hop between certain surfaces in order to scale walls, our hero also has access to a chain that functions as a grappling hook as well as some kind of booster that lets him dodge attacks and reach new vertical heights. It's not clear at this time whether or not you'll have access to these abilities from the start or whether you will have to unlock them as the game progresses. 

    The gameplay footage also showed the Doom Guy picking up an extra life, which is something that the team did not expand on during the presentation but is worth keeping an eye on.

    Sep 27, 2018

    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.

    Rico will be taking on "the world's most powerful private army." We don't know much else about the story at the moment but expect to hear more as the game heads towards its release.

    Here's everything else we know about game:

    The Fallout 76 arrives in October! Here's when you can expect to jump into the game...

    News Matthew ByrdJohn Saavedra
    Sep 27, 2018

    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.

    Here's everything else we know about the game:

    Fallout 76 News

    The latest Fallout 76 trailer gives us a look at the opening cinematic of the game. Check it out below:

    Fallout 76 Beta

    The Fallout 76 beta begins on Oct. 23 for Xbox One for those who pre-ordered the game for the system. Bethesda hasn't revealed when PS4 and PC fans can expect to jump into the beta, only that it will follow the XBO session. 

    Fallout 76 Story

    We learned a bit about what you should expect from Fallout 76's story recently. Read more about the game's approach to narrative here.

    Fallout 76 Release Date

    Fallout 76 will arrive on Nov. 14, 2018. The game is coming to XBO, PS4, and PC.

    Here's a gameplay video previewing the base-building element of Fallout 76. Check it out below:

    Another trailer debuted at E3 2018. Check it out below:

    Check out the announcement trailer:

    Fallout 76 Details

    According to an interview with Todd HowardFallout 76 will not feature an offline single-player option. 

    What that means is that there is no way to play the game without other people somehow being involved in your experience. Why you don't technically have to interact with them, they can theoretically interact with you whenever they'd like. However, there will be private servers meaning that it is possible to host a server for yourself or a small group of people. 

    Additionally, it seems that the game will not include any NPCs that are not robots. This does raise some questions regarding how, exactly, quests in the game will be given out. Our guess is that most of the game's quest will be very simple fetch and enemy elimination affairs.

    Vader Immortal is a mysterious Star Wars VR adventure arriving in 2019. Check out its first trailer!

    News Matthew Byrd
    Sep 27, 2018

    A long time ago in a press release far, far away, ILMxLAB revealed that they were working on a virtual reality adventure starring Darth Vader. Well, today we got our first look at Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series in the last few years, and it's...something. 

    Based on what we see in this trailer, it appears that the plot of this series - or at least this episode - will take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. It sees an unidentified individual being drawn to Vader's liquid hot magma evil lair on Mustafar. It seems that Vader has brought this individual to Dr. Evil's summer home for a specific purpose. Unfortunately, he does not reveal that purpose. 

    That's about all we know in terms of concrete details, but there are other plot points implied by this trailer. The fact that Vader is accompanied by an interrogation droid tends to suggest that he believes this unidentified individual may know something specific/valuable. The fact that we see a lightsaber duel at the end of the trailer also implies that either the individual - or a mysterious outside party - may be one of the Jedi who survived Order 66. 

    All of that is fascinating, but the most fascinating aspects of this project remain the things we don't know about it.

    For instance, are we looking at the start of the plot of this entire series, or is this some kind of adventure limited to the first episode? Is the reason that we don't see the "hero" of the trailer as simple as the fact that the developers want you to feel like the protagonist, or are they trying to conceal the identity of a previously established Star Wars character? 

    Most importantly, what, exactly, is this project? It seems to be a narrative-driven VR adventure with interactive elements, but how interactive is Vader Immortal really going to be? Our best guess is that's it's going to be a mostly on-the-rails Star Wars story. 

    We'll know for sure when Vader Immortaldebuts in 2019.
