Mortal Kombat X story trailer – Adding sense to the violence?

Check out the brand new story trailer for Mortal Kombat X one of our most eagerly awaited titles of 2015. Just like the studio’s last game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, the story will see you controlling multiple characters which is a great way to try out a wide variety of the roster rather than settling on an old favourite for the entire game.

The story will take place over a period of twenty years, so prepare for some epic scenes and find out why everyone’s so keen to get their hands on that stone. The trailer also promotes the exclusive special edition at Game where you’ll get Goro as a playable character for £47.99 (ouch indeed).

Or you could order at these much cheaper prices below. Stay tuned to our game deals page for regular discount on the hottest games.

Road Redemption Gets New Gameplay Footage

A little over a year ago we saw Road Redemption enter the Kickstarter scene and successfully reach its target in order to bring us a Road Rash-style thrash on the highway that’s been missing from our lives for all too long.

Backers can now gain access to the game’s Alpha version and the devs have released a new gameplay video that brings all sorts of memories back from our Mega Drive days. You can buy into the Alpha now and secure a Steam copy later on for an admittedly pricey-looking $33.99. Head on over to the game’s website for more information.

Console support was one of the game’s stretch goals, but there’s currently no mention of when or what other platform we can expect this on when I checked the website. A quick look at their forums confirmed that Oculus Rift support is something that is being considered though. For now, check out the new footage of the biker combat-racing game and let us know what you think. Continue reading Road Redemption Gets New Gameplay Footage

Batman: Arkham Knight – 10 Things You Need to Know

Batman: Arkham Knight Logo for new PS4 and Xbox One game

It’s been widely understood for ages that Rocksteady have been secretly working away on a next-gen Batman game for a while now, but that doesn’t mean that yesterday’s announcement hasn’t got us wildly excited for the Dark Knight’s debut on the PS4 and Xbox One with Batman: Arkham Knight. So let’s dive into what we’ve been able to find out about the game since its reveal.

Play Alien: Isolation at Rezzed Expo in Birmingham

Most media outlets haven’t even been given a chance to try Alien: Isolation yet, but Sega are giving YOU the chance to play the game at the EGX Rezzed event at Birmingham NEC on the 28th-30th March.

Sega seem keen to show gamers the game first-hand with no smoke and mirrors after the utter farce that was the finished product of Aliens: Colonial Marines. So why not head on down? Tickets are available at the event’s site here from as little as £9. The game will be playable on PS4, Xbox One and PC platforms. Creative Assembly’s survival horror approach certainly has us interested, but we’re cautious as to whether they can maintain it throughout a whole game against just one alien. That said, we’ve been hearing rumours of androids being used as gun-fodder in-between all the hiding in cupboards. Continue reading Play Alien: Isolation at Rezzed Expo in Birmingham

New Thief Trailer Emphasises Open Approach

 

Still on the fence about the upcoming Thief game? Then check out this extensive gameplay trailer which does a great job of showing how you’ll be able to play the game in any style you want. Play as a ghost and remain undetected throughout your mission, try to play the game without killing a single person (betting there’s a Trophy for that) or just swagger around firing lethal arrows and stabbing people in the neck -probably making life quite difficult for yourself in the process.

Coming from the team behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution, we’d expect open approaches to missions to make up a large part of the game’s DNA and are enormously relieved to finally see some solid evidence of this. The footage brings to mind a hybrid of Deus Ex, Far Cry 3 and Dishonored, which might just the best thing to happen to stealth gaming since Hideo Kojima looked at a PS1.

Enjoy the trailer below and keep an eye on Dealspwn.com for the cheapest pre-order deals around the net.

No Football Manager for Next-Gen Consoles

Sports Interactive studio boss Miles Jacobson, has dashed hopes of console gamers playing Football Manager anytime soon, telling MCV [print edition], “We have no plans for next-gen at all.”

So, despite the architecture of the new machines resembling PCs more than ever, it would seem Sega and SI are yet to be convinced. Past form seems to be a key issue as Jacobson went on to say, “We didn’t have a lot of success on the 360. We did on the first version on Xbox, and we usually see ourselves going up year-on-year not falling.”

Call of Duty: Ghosts Free Fall Map is a GAME Exclusive

“Look, We’re Knocking Down Skyscrapers Too!”

That’s what this trailer for the Free Fall pre-order DLC incentive seems to be shouting, as Activision try to muscle in on Battlefield 4’s key multiplayer feature, massively changing environments in multiplayer maps. To be fair, Call of Duty: Ghosts’ new map looks like a hell of a lot of fun too.

Infinity Ward’s Mark Rubin, is pretty excited about the new map: “It [the new map] introduces our new mechanic, dynamic maps – this idea of bringing that sort of cinematic single player experience to multiplayer. You’re playing in a building that is falling over and is wedged between two other buildings. The floor you’re on is actually the glass windows from the side of the building so you see this world in a very topsy-turvy sense as it’s plummeting down to the streets below.”

The pre-order map will be available from multiple outlets in the US. European console gamers face a one-store exclusive policy in each territory though, with Game being the only option for UK gamers. Tease yourself with a trailer after the break and decide if you want to put your money with the big purple one. Continue reading Call of Duty: Ghosts Free Fall Map is a GAME Exclusive

Contrast Gameplay Trailer Moves in the Shadows

This is our first proper look at some gameplay for the upcoming platformer from Compulsion Games, Contrast. Set in 1920s Paris, with a burlesque-noir carnival style, your journey will follow the story of the little girl Didi and her imaginary acrobatic friend, Dawn.

In an interesting twist, you will be able to jump into the shadows, turning parts of the game into a 2D platformer. It looks like you will use both dimensions to solve puzzles and move around the game world. We’re getting a similar vibe to dimension-shifting games like Super Paper Mario, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams or the upcoming Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. This is a good thing.

PS4 gamers with a PS+ subscription will get the game for free at launch. Elsewhere it will be released on Xbox 360 and PC on November 15th and PS3 on November 20th. Continue reading Contrast Gameplay Trailer Moves in the Shadows

Test Driving the Racers of the Future

There are a lot of racing games on their way, perhaps too many for those of us planning to splash out on a next-gen console soon. So which of them are shaping up to be worthy of your attention? I endured the queues and hardware crashes of the Eurogamer Expo to tear around various racetracks to bring you my impressions of five of the most anticipated racers of the future on both existing and next generation platforms.

Assassin’s Creed IV Trailer Shows Infamous Characters

“Dash my buttons!”

Thanks Steve Bonnet  -the latest shipmate of the good ship, Jackdaw- for my new favourite phrase. The jovial Brit is introduced as a rich thrill-seeker who we imagine is going to get more than he bargained for. Especially when he finds himself in a world packed with infamous pirates like Charles Vane and Blackbeard.

This latest trailer is more of a visual showcase of the game’s characters, so don’t expect much gameplay. Do expect some top-notch next-gen visuals though. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was one of the best-looking next-gen games I saw at this week’s  Eurogamer Expo. Hell, it was one of the best games I played there full stop.

So how about it readers? Did you head down to Earl’s Court to play some pirates? And have you made up which generation you’re going to opt for when the game is released? Continue reading Assassin’s Creed IV Trailer Shows Infamous Characters

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 (Hands-On Preview)

First things first. This hands-on report will be spoiler-free regarding the first game. I’m currently playing that one through (I know, I’m late) and several previews for the new game have blown the first game’s ending. I don’t want to do the same if you’re yet to play Lords of Shadow. So read this, then get on it, you don’t want to get left behind again.

The word on the wire is that this concluding part of the Lords of Shadow saga is going to be a more open world affair. That’s not on display here though as this is more of an introduction. Don’t worry; it’s much more exciting than it sounds. There’s a massive, Holy Transformer thing for starters! But more on that later.

New Shadow Warrior Gameplay Trailer

Want an old-school shooter, but one that doesn’t feel like it’s stuck in the past? Quiet, Painkiller HD, nobody wants to play you. You really need to check out the new gameplay trailer for the reboot of Shadow Warrior. There’s a gory mess of first-person sword attacks and bloody massive rocket launchers against all sorts of opponents.

Plus, the protagonist is called Wang. Any trailer that open with “you’ve got Wang” when answering the phone has our attention. Childish? Most certainly. A much needed dose of silliness in a genre obsessed by realism? You bet. Enjoy the weird after the break. Continue reading New Shadow Warrior Gameplay Trailer

FIFA 14 Ultimate Team Updates Explained

With the new season getting ever closer, we’re beginning to get excited for FIFA 14 again. Or maybe you’re just waiting to pick up FIFA 13 for dirt cheap as soon as the  new one comes out? If you do that though you’ll miss out on all these new changes to Ultimate Team mode.

In addition to team chemistry tweaks players can look forward to the return of online single matches in UT mode along with an expanded seasons mode. Check out the press release notes after the break, or keep scrolling for a quick video instead. Continue reading FIFA 14 Ultimate Team Updates Explained

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Gets 5 Minute E3 Trailer

It’s hard to believe after all these years we’re only a few months away from getting an online Final Fantasy game on the PS3. The latest trailer from E3 does its best to show off the gorgeous environments, cutscenes and in-game action. With Final Fantasy XV seemingly taking a new gameplay direction, this may be the best bet for RPG fans. Provided you have the coin that is.

With monthly subs starting around the £8/$14 mark we’re still a little on the fence about this one. On the fence, but damn near falling off it as we lean in for a better look that is. A Realm Reborn is out August 27th on PC and PS3, check out the new trailer after the break. Continue reading Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Gets 5 Minute E3 Trailer

Underwater Stage and Riley the COD Dog Gameplay Debuted for Call of Duty: Ghosts

The live gameplay reveal for Call of Duty: Ghosts has just been shown giving gamers an early look at what the press are going to see at E3 in a few days’ time.

The demo begins with an underwater section that resembles many of the stealthy follow missions in previous Call of Duty games. You follow your AI partner around some highly detailed reefs, populated by schools of fish and apparently not-that-hungry sharks. The demo was running on ‘next-gen hardware’ but some of the finer detail was lost due to the live stream nature of the feed. We’re sure a shiny HD version of the demo will emerge over the next few days though.

After another bit of stage chatter, we finally get to see the COD Dog in action, or should I say, Riley. Infinity Ward have named the canine after his namesake in a few previous Call of Duty titles. I know, I thought  they were going to go for Price too when they mentioned pleasing fans.

Riley looks awesome though, and we’ll be able to directly control him. This is reasoned-out by him having a pop-up camera mounted on his back and vibrating sensors behind each ear telling him which direction to move in. The German shepherd can be sent to silently dispatch lone targets. Well, silent apart from their terrified screams.

Commands can also be issued, but this may be something the AI takes care of. Upon cracking the glass in a window, the AI partner simply says ‘search’ and Riley smashes through, alarming a group of guards inside before the door suddenly explodes in slow-motion with one enemy soldier flailing to stop Riley eating his face and the others barely even noticing your presence in what appears to be Ghost’s version of a ‘breach’ assault.

The demonstration closes with an impression of the E3 arena’s 120-foot screen showing a montage. Sadly, this looks very thin on your laptop or TV as they try to cram in the whole image.

Just in case you missed the presentation on your Machinima App on your Xbox 360 because it crashed (well worth £30 a year, Microsoft), here’s a link to the replay on the Call of Duty site. Just skip the 30-minute countdown to get to the presentation. We’ll bring you a YouTube link as soon as possible.

It may only be a glimpse, but we’re looking forward to the November 5th release date already.

The Walking Dead: Retail Edition (Review)

After receiving widespread critical acclaim over the course of the first season of the episodic download game series, The Walking Dead has finally followed the tracks and shuffled its way to retail. Telltale have missed an opportunity though as this release features no extras, like making of videos, interviews and so on. Hell, if they’d chucked a poster in they could have called it the Collector’s Edition.

I’m making a fuss about this because as many of you will be aware you can download the series on PSN/XBLA for around £15 or even cheaper on PC or during a sale, but the RRP for this is £30. I love having physical copies of games, but you may want to buy this digitally or wait until this version drops in price, which it surely will. At least with this on the shelves it may stop people buying Activision’s awful -entirely unrelated- The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct by mistake.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Coming to PC and PS3 in Summer

The much-delayed Final Fantasy: A Realm Reborn is set for a summer release according to the game’s Executive Producer, Naoki Yoshida, “The whole team has been working at full throttle to ensure the game will be ready for a summer release,” and “It won’t be long before you can mark your calenders and begin the final countdown.”

This summer release includes both the PC and the PS3 versions, which is surprising considering the original FFXIV (which crashed and burned horribly) never even made it to Sony’s console. In all honesty, I thought this new and improved version would skip the PS3 and head to the PS4. Continue reading Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Coming to PC and PS3 in Summer

The Walking Dead Episodes 1-5 Hits Retail Tomorrow

A disc version of Telltale Games’ multi-award winning The Walking Dead series is finally getting a physical release on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC tomorrow. All five episodes will come packaged on the disc. This gives players who may be wary of handing over their credit card details online (not that Sony or Microsoft ever have any security breaches, ahem) a chance to play the zombie survival series that many publications awarded ‘Game of the Year’ last year, including us.

Details and trailer after the break.

Why We Love… Single Player Games

Recent news has seen gamers lash out over the launch fiasco surrounding EA’s latest SimCity title. The game requires an always-on internet connection, which meant it broke as soon as it went live as thousands of enthusiastic gamers tried to play at once.

This happened days after Crytek CEO, Cervat Yerli, said, “I think the notion of a single-player experience has to go away.” Instead, he believes there should be more integration with the online world with “online single-player.” So, while keen to plug his upcoming online game, Warface, he’s stupidly kicked his other game –Crysis 3– in the stones. Guess we know why Crysis 2 and 3’s single-player modes can only muster a rental recommendation then.
