New Horror Game Reveal
In an interesting marketing move, this game is revealed via a playable demo. If you don’t have the hour and twenty minutes it takes to get through, you can just skip to about the 1:15:00 mark to get to the goods. I think you gamers will be pleasantly surprised.
Tequila Works Reveals Rime
It’s hard to say exactly what Rime is, but from the looks, it appears to be a Zelda/Ico inspired adventure game, with some very lovely visuals and music. Hopefully we’ll find out more in the coming days
Halo 2 Anniversary Multiplayer Revealed
This reveal is exciting, as we get a good look at the updated Halo 2. In this case, it’s just multiplayer, but that’s awesome too. This reveal takes us to the map of Sanctuary, which looks pretty in the Xbox One upgrade. Simply watching it makes me want to play a few matches of the old game. The Master Chief Collection can’t come soon enough.
Atari Announces Roller Coaster Tycoon World
Another classic game is making a comeback with Roller Coaster Tycoon World. Once again, you’ll be managing your very own theme park, only this time, you can do it with up to three other people. Players will also be able to share coaster blueprints as well as visit each others’ parks. The best part? Roller Coaster Tycoon World will be micro-transaction free. This is a full game, and you’ll only have to buy it once! It seems like a blessing for game like this in this day and age.
Halo 5: Guardian Multiplayer Beta Trailer
This is a “First Look” trailer for the upcoming Halo 5 Multiplayer Beta that will be included with the Master Chief Collection coming out this fall. While the trailer is mostly an overview of what to expect, there are some glimpses of the game itself, such as various weapons and a couple of maps, one of which looks like a remake of the Halo 2 classic Midship (or something heavily inspired by it). Players will also have a chance to try out the game’s customization features. Halo multiplayer has always been a fun experience even after switching developers, so this is sure to be special as its the first Halo experience for the new Xbox One.
Xbox One and Playstation 4 both miss out on big exclusives (?)
Via the game’s official Tumblr, we’ve learned recently that Rise of the Tomb Raider, sequel to last year’s hit Tomb Raider reboot, will be exclusive to Xbox One. While I’d like to be able to give you a good reason for this, it would seem that it has come down to Microsoft being a primary backing partner for the project, hence the exclusivity for Xbox One. While this doesn’t necessarily rule out a PC release somewhere down the line, a PS4 release is looking less and less likely of ever happening.
I suppose it’s not all thunder and rain for PS4 fans, however. Rumors suggest that No Man’s Sky will be a PS4 exclusive game due to similar reasons for Rise of the Tomb Raider being Xbox One exclusive. Sony has apparently been attempting to acquire developer Hello Games for a time now, and that would mean a condition of exclusivity. While Sony hasn’t yet acquired the developer, sources claim an exclusivity deal is in place. Take this with a grain of salt, however, as this one is less official than an official Tumblr.
Quantum Break Gameplay Footage
Once you tuck away your resentful feelings for Remedy over the lack of Alan Wake 2 (it still hurts) you’ll find that Quantum Break is most likely going to be a great game in its own right. If you’ve played Alan Wake, you might notice a similar feel to the Quantum Break. However, the game is far different. While, at first, it may appear to be “just another” third person shooter, we soon learn that isn’t the case. The chronopathic-like abilities lead to some of the most interesting gameplay situations I’ve seen in a shooter (or any game), and make a standard TPS into a unique and appealing one. Not to mention the visuals of the game alone are beautiful, but the chrono effects on the gameplay make it to be damn near a work of art. Judging from this video, it looks like Remedy knows exactly what they’re doing, and I’m on board 100%.
