A new series of Rise of the Tomb Raider videos entitled Woman Vs Wild are set to give us new looks at the game in the build up to launch next month. Today’s episode looks at ‘harsh environments’.
This shows us the wildlife Lara will face. And by face, I mean nail to the endangered species list with an arrow or possibly shotgun. There’s a brief mention of the story too and a look at the new expanded hub environments. Enjoy the trailer after the break and I’ve dug out the cheapest current preorder offer too. Continue reading Rise of the Tomb Raider – Harsh Environments trailer
We’re warming up to Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate the more we see of it. Naturally, it’s facing a lot of pressure after the poor showing of Unity, but we’re sure Ubisoft is keen to get its flagship franchise back on track.
Today’s new story trailer shows us the ruthless Templar characters who are running London in Syndicate. Fans of twirly gentleman’s moustaches are in for a treat. There’s zero mention of a modern-day storyline sitting alongside the London narrative, so we presume Ubi has ditched it, which they were in the process of doing with Unity. Take a look at our features below for our earliest impressions on the game. Continue reading Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate story trailer (contains epic moustaches)
A packed E3 2015 showing from EA included a rather tasty gameplay trailer for Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst where we see Faith in action. The first-person free-running skills are looking slicker than ever as Faith perform wallruns, slides and even boots enemies clean through windows. Unlike some, I was never struck with motion-sickness with the original, but that new backflip may take some getting used to!
Rumours of an open-world city to explore were confirmed and there will be no loading screens at all. Having a huge playground to explore with Faith’s skillset sounds like a fantastic way to expand on the ideas of the under-rated original title. Hopefully there will be lots of collectibles littered around the city to encourage lots of sky-high climbs and death-defying last-gasp gap leaps. Devilishly tough time trials are sure to return also, which will be great if they include ghost images of the best times again. Continue reading Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst debut gameplay trailer and release date
Here it is folks, leaked a few hours earlier than we were expecting, the first proper gameplay trailer for Just Cause 3. It certainly doesn’t disappoint and is packed with that wonderful grappling hook, ridiculously dangerous attitudes to vehicle safety and more explosions than a Michael Bay montage. In short, it looks like the most fun game of 2015. Take a peek and see for yourselves.
Also, stay tuned to Dealspwn as I’ll be bringing you a feature article later today on some of the finer points that’ll have you wanting Just Cause 3 even sooner. Continue reading Just Cause 3 trailer is suitably insane
Today’s brand new Mad Max trailer has been well worth the wait as we finally get to see lots of gameplay. As expected, there’s a large focus on the vehicular combat, which looks similar to Rage, but with the fun factor turned up to 11. The desert may be all sorts of brown, but it’s looking very detailed too.
The extensive trailer also shows off lots of combat features and emphasises that most of the on-foot action will be based around melee fights as ammo is incredibly rare in this post apocalyptic world. Customisation of your Magnum Opus car and Max’s gear also gets a look in showing that there’s much more depth to the game than we originally imagined.
Fans of the Mad Max movies may be a bit annoyed that the Australian setting seems to have been ditched for the States (are those the remains of the Golden Gate Bridge we see?), but we’re presuming this is something the upcoming movie remake has done anyway. That said, Gibson fans (he used to be cool, before he turned into a massive anti-semite) will enjoy brief glimpses of homages to the original movies, like Max eating dog food and a cheeky glimpse of the Thunderdome. Continue reading Mad Max gameplay trailer unleashes the Road Warrior
Destiny fans can finally see the new House of Wolves expansion DLC in action thanks to a new trailer that’s just hit the net. Bungie and Activision are going head-to-head with The Witcher III though with a May 19th release date.
With Bungie’s DLC being of seriously questionable value so far, it seems nuts to go up against a game that gamers have been chomping at the bit for. The Witcher III is set to offer 200 hours of missions no less. While House of Wolves will cost £19.99 (also a part of the Season Pass) and possibly last a night or two -aside from repeating farming and grinding, naturally. Unless you already own the Season Pass, we’d say wait for the reviews to see if Bungie learned from their past mistakes with The Dark Below. Continue reading Destiny: House of Wolves debut trailer is live
Well folks, after a rather clumsy ‘reveal’ from Square Enix, where details leaked out during the rather boring multi-day Twitch broadcast, we have the first trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Now, wouldn’t that have just been easier rather than whatever was happening with Twitch, where everyone guessed it was going to be a new Deus Ex title anyway?
To be honest, we’re still massively excited as we were beginning to fear it might be another mobile/tablet game rather than a PC and new-gen console title. Although, a Kane & Lynch match-three game would have been bad-ass. Anyways, enough chit-chat, let’s take a look at what Adam Jensen is getting up to and when you’re done, be sure to read Jon’s newest article What we want from Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – better graphics are just the start. Continue reading Deus Ex: Mankind Divided official reveal trailer
After the recent disappointing news that Traveller’s Tales would not be completing Lego The Hobbit with content from the third movie, we felt somewhat screwed over by the studio and Warner Bros. Giving us all four Jurassic Park movies in one game is certainly a step in the right direction though. Today’s new trailer boasts that the upcoming Lego Jurassic World will include content from the original trilogy and the new film. Clever girl, indeed.
Original dialogue from the movies will be included, in a similar way to the Hobbit and LOTR titles, and we think it lends itself to humour a little bit more than the po-faced Middle Earth adventures. Lego Jeff Goldblum – what else does a game need? Iconic scenes to be found in the trailer all seem to be from the first movie so expect Lego-riffs on the T-Rex chase, the Clever Girl moment and the Raptor feeding scene.
Regular gameplay is a bit thin on the ground. Will hitting raptors with a stick be a viable option? We somewhat doubt it, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see guns play a larger role. The little procompsognathus are probably going to get a kicking though. Fingers crossed we get to play as dinosaurs at some point too. The dilophosaurus is surely an apt character for spitting at Lego target switches?
The game will launch in June on PS4, XO, PC, PS3, 360, Wii U, 3DS and Vita. Enough talk, hold onto your butts and check out the trailer below. Continue reading Lego Jurassic World to include all four movies – have a trailer
Well, the Vita finally has a respectable FPS. Admittedly, it wasn’t too hard for it to beat the likes of Resistance: Burning Skies (6/10) or Black Ops: Declassified (4/10), but it’s comfortably the best FPS on the handheld, despite it not really pushing the FPS boat out as Jon mentions in his review.
Rather than display some adrenaline pumping action, this launch trailer strangely opts to show off the games environments and lighting effects. But to be honest, the detail on show is incredible and well worth proudly boasting. It’s almost a shame to play it on such a small screen. With any luck, we’ll be able to play it on the Vita TV Micro-console. Continue reading Killzone Mercenary Launch Trailer
Rayman Legends may have been stealing all the limelight recently, but you really shouldn’t let Sony’s awesome platformer pass you by. Matt scored the game 8/10 this week. I’ve played through the game too and absolutely loved it. It’s beautifully designed both technically and visually. Don’t forget there’s a killer co-op mode too, player two can control a flying character to help you find hidden items and remove obstacles for you. Check out some awesome footage in the launch trailer after the break. Continue reading Puppeteer Launch Trailer – Buy It Now!
NetherRealm have built up a strong roster of characters for Injustice: Gods Among Us since release, with regular DLC drops doing a great job of keeping the game locked into our consoles whenever we feel a bit fighty.
Zatanna the magician is the latest fighter and we have history and gamplay videos for you after the break. She’s going to be a tough one in the hands on experts as she’s very fast. Cool teleport moves and excellent juggling skills are ready to make your life hell. Her magic skills mean Superman in particular is going to have a tough time with her, which should please Batman no end. Unless Zatanna mind-wipes him again. Still, we’d rather risk that than have to spend any time with the cast of Charmed or Hermione. Videos after the break a review link here. Continue reading Zatanna Added to Injustice Roster
Here’s another collection of videos from the Injustice: Gods Among Us Battle Arena for you. This time we get to see Superman square up to Sinestro and Green Arrow attempt to ground Hawkgirl. The variety of moves on show is astounding, giving the game a real feel of getting into the spirit of each character, more than any comic/fighting cross-over I’ve ever seen. Using the environment plays a key part once again with a few jaw-dropping scenes. If this plays half as entertainingly as it is to watch I think Warner Bros may be onto a winner. Injustice: Gods Among Us is out April 19th. Continue reading Superman, Sinestro, Green Arrow and Hawkgirl Get Smashed Up in Injustice Videos
Popular online retailers ShopTo.net have leaked a trailer for EA’s new racer, Need for Speed: The Run. Realising it would be hard work denying the project with a EA-stamped trailer zinging around the internet, EA were quick to confirm the game’s existence. We’ve even got a release date of November 18th.
The trailer shows that we might be in for a more story-driven experience than the recent NFS titles like Shift 2 and Hot Pursuit. All we know is that your driver is called Jack and he looks like he’s about to come to a messy end, thanks to the train that’s speeding towards his overturned car. If the story involves gaining the trust of an underground racing team as a cop or someone looking for an estranged relative, EA should get re-writing that now. Continue reading EA Announce Need For Speed: The Run
After revealing the game with a cinematic trailer last December, Sega have finally given us a look at actual gameplay footage for Binary Domain. Now that we’ve seen the game in action, we have to say we’re much more interested. Well, as interested as we can be considering the game won’t be here until 2012 and it’s not called Bioshock 2.
This sci-fi third-person shooter favours a more sedate (no rocket-assisted power-sliding to cover) angle than last year’s 9/10 scoring Vanquish. It shares the all-grey look though. The cover-based shooter looks to be supported by vehicle sections and hopefully some co-op action as you look to be a part of a four-strong squad.
So what will we be blasting to bits come 2012? Cyborg robots, naturally. Red-eyed, self-aware robots. Initially created for service, a sinister corporation gave them a few firmware upgrades including ego and emotion so they could be slyly integrated into powerful positions within society. We’re presuming that bit them on the arse pretty sharpish. Android drones will be supported by larger mechs and if Sega know what’s good for them, some really, really big ones. Hint: just make Vanquish 2 please.
Continue reading Binary Domain | First Gameplay Trailer
EA have announced a new retro-style shooter for PSN and XBLA. You’ll be controlling a tiny ship about the size of a blood cell, inside the human body. The MicroBot’s purpose is to eradicate diseases at a cellular level by shooting the hell out of them. Drop in/drop out co-op will also be included. We’re even more excited because it reminds us of one of our favourite 80s movies, Inner Space, which in turn went on to inspire episodes of Family Guy and Futurama. You’ll have to wait until winter 2011 to get your hands on it, but check out the latter part of this trailer to catch a glimpse of the gameplay and strangely calming graphics.
