You know that P.T. demo that got everyone excited? At the end, it was revealed that it would be for a new Silent Hills game starring Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead and Boondock Saints fame? Guillermo del Toro, an awesome and visually impressive director, was attached to the game. That game might not happen.
From this tweet, it del Toro is saying the game is not going to happen. No other details are available, but some folks are speculating that it's because Kojima is no longer associated with Konami.
Also, the P.T. demo is be being removed from the PlayStation Store after April 29th, so if you haven't gotten it you better hurry before it gets taken down in 3 days.
Hopefully, we'll get more info soon as to why the game isn't happening, but I know a lot of people that's going to be really disappointed by this bit of news.
Here's the full trailer released by Activision today for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Like the previous game, it's set in the future, but we don't know how it connects to the previous game yet. The trailer shows off some new abilities like for an arm to become a gatling gun and jump jets. Yeah, if you like jump jets and wall running in Titanfall, Black Ops 3 has it too.
Pre-ordering now will get you into the multiplayer beta. Right now, we don't know if that includes the new zombie mode that gets teased at the end. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be out on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the PC on November 6th, 2015.
Man, Ultrabrilliant, where have you been? You've been hiding out for, what, four months now? Then you crawl back out with a video tour of Grand Theft Auto V? Oh well. I ain't even mad. This is another great visual cruise through another gameworld—this time it's Rockstar's L.A., also known as Los Santos. These shots clip from day to night, night to day. And I see how much you're in love with the rain effects in GTA V, Ultrabrilliant. I see how you take it from the palm trees to the oil derricks, from the beaches to the suburbs, and from the freeways to the freight lines.
I could watch your stuff for days, Ultrabrilliant, even though your videos are never longer than a song. Nice work as always, regardless. Don't leave us hanging another four months for the next one.
Prepare to take on the role of The Dungeon Lord as Dungeons 2 is now available on Steam. Dungeons 2 lets you create a network of dungeons as you attempt to take on the forces of goodliness. That's right, you're the villain. Build your dungeon, order your servant Snots to do your dirty work, amass an army of Orcs, then conquer the Overworld. Doesn't get much better than that.
Dungeons 2 is currently available on Steam for $39.99 as well as via the Kalypso Launcher. A limited edition boxed retail version will be released on April 28th that includes a Dungeons 2 poster, the exclusive Pixie Village DLC, the official soundtrack CD, and some custom art postcards.
A couple of days ago, Sean Cahill posted about an upcoming DLC for World of Tanks called The Siberian Wolf Pack that will bring players some of Russia's deadliest tanks. In the meantime Wargaming has released version 9.7 of World of Tanks that adds new features as well as a new branch of French tanks, a third historic map (Overlord), and tweaked some balancing rules.
Team Battles will now have permanent teams which can now have up to twelve members with seven battling at a time. They can also have their own name and logo provided that team has played twenty rated matches. Leaderboards have been added and are divided globally into six leagues that require a set number of points in order to qualify for each division and climb the ladder.
For the new French tanks, players will be able to check out two new light tanks and five new medium tanks, including the Tier 9 AMX 30 1st prototype and the Tier 10 AMX 30 B. In addition, the new Overlord historic map takes players to a level inspired by the D-Day Landings at Normandy where they'll be thrown into a chaotic environment of wreckage and destruction.
The official Just Cause Twitter posted a very short gif, along with the announcement that a gameplay trailer for Just Cause 3 will be released on Tuesday, April 28th.
It's really kind of hard to tell what's happening in the gif, but we see an explosion, some wingsuit action, and a jet, and that's all we need to know that this is Just Cause. I loved Just Cause 2 to death, and I'm excited to see what they're going to show us. The developers have previously said that they wouldn't show gameplay until they were sure it would blow us away.
I'm eagerly waiting, Avalanche!
Just like every other game ever, Gears of War is getting an HD remake for the Xbox One.
There were some rumors going around that the Gears trilogy would be remastered and released, similar to the Halo Master Chief Collection, called the Marcus Fenix Collection. This is, however, not the case, and it's only the original game being remade. It seems bizarre to me that they are only doing the first one, especially so soon after Halo did all four of its games. Surely they could do all three, but I suppose they are just sticking with one.
I'm getting a little tired of this trend, if I'm honest, and this one seems particularly egregious for only being one game, but I'm sure there are a lot of Gears fans out there that will be super excited to be able to play the multiplayer again.
A good bit more information has been leaked about the newest annual installment in the Call of Duty franchise. A series of screenshots with the information was posted on Reddit, and it's actually pretty interesting. I'll sum it up below:
It sounds pretty good to me. I really like the idea of bringing co-op to the campaign and doing it right. Co-op campaigns in games like this can get really crazy and really fun. I'm a little disappointed with the new movement system they mentioned; I want people to get their Titanfall out of my Call of Duty. That stuff is all fine and good, but it's not why I play Call of Duty, personally.
Either way, Black Ops 3 is sure to follow tradition and provide good, mindless multiplayer fun.
Is Guitar Hero Live a considered a reboot? Maybe a revival? Whatever it is, we now know the first 10 songs we'll be able to play.
It's a pretty solid list, I think. It seems more modern than most tracklists from previous Guitar Heros, but there's nothing really wrong with that. As a tried and true metalhead, I'd prefer to see the last 10 songs, but I guess I'll just have to wait.
Honestly, I'm excited Guitar Hero's coming back. Back in the World Tour days, it was one of my favorite games to play online. Between this and the new Rock Band, it looks like I'll be busting my game equipment out of storage in the coming year.
Check the songs in the screenshot below.
From Friday to Monday morning, the free to play Neverwinter on Xbox One is having double events, which means you'll get double XP, enchantments and runestones, refinement, and astral diamonds.
Not only that, but a bunch of stuff is on sale as well. Most notably, you can get more character slots for 90% off. That was one of my biggest issues with the game, and I'll probably use this opportunity to address it. The rest of the sales are 20% off. Here they are, taken from Arc Games' website:
If you haven't played Neverwinter yet, now's the perfect time to start. It's still relatively new, so you'll have a chance to get it early, which is always fun in an MMO. It's also like, super free, and pretty dang fun to boot.
