“The team needs you. Be their shield.” Overwatch‘s latest origin short film is about the Crusader, Reinhardt. Set during their last stand against the Omnics, the film sees Reinhardt mature a few minutes too late, and explains how Eichenwalde is what it is today.
(PG-13: Language, Gore) Picking up immediately where the reboot left off, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus sees BJ Blazkowicz wake up to a nightmare: Nazi-occupied America. Wield futuristic weapons and new abilities in the name of freedom. Drops 10/27/17.
We’ve waited far too long for the latest sequel to our favorite open-world sandbox shooter, but it looks like it’ll be worth the wait, as we’ll not only get to toss cars, but don mech suits, and destroy everything in sight. Coming to Xbox One, Xbox One X, and Windows PC on 11/7/17.
“So I shot him, and then I shot this other one. Shot a couple of extra guys just to be safe. I did a lot of shooting to be totally honest.” Nathan Filion’s character Cayde-6 tells a story as the Last City crumbles in this antithetical tease for the sequel to the hit MMOFPS.
When we played the new version of DOOM, the barrage of creepy monsters, environments, shrieks, and splatter sounds stressed us out. But it’s amazing how much more playful the game seems when you replace the sound effects with goofy cartoon ones like Petronius did.
Vexal shows off a ridiculous mod he performed on his Porsche which he claims allows him not only to play the classic FPS DOOM on its screen, but to control the game using the car’s steering wheel, horn, gear shifter, and accelerator. Sure, it’s fake, but it’s still hilarious.
(SPOILERS, Gore) These days, a lot of games claim to offer replayability and the freedom to choose how you’ll solve their challenges. But as YouTuber Cosmic Contarian shows in this silly video, Dishonored 2 more than lives up to that promise. Jindosh! I’ve come to bargain.
A look at Dishonored 2‘s themed missions. These are quests where you still have a target within a fortified level, but there are mechanics or level designs specific to a mission that enrich and expand your playthrough, such as a time-traveling device or a transforming house.
An upcoming FPS RPG based on the hit board game Space Hulk. You are a Space Marine Terminator – heavily armed but barely mobile – fighting against a horde of aliens in the cramped halls of an ancient spaceship. It also has a co-op mode for up to 4 players.
(PG-13) Resident Evil 7 might as well be a new series. It’s in first-person and VR-ready, it’s set in Louisiana, features a normal citizen as your character, and it abandons the campy horror for a more realistic tale. Drops 1/24/17 for Windows, Xbox One and PS4.
Overwatch‘s latest character profile is about Bastion. Manufactured by the artifically intelligent Omnics to fight humans, this unit was damaged and lay dormant for a decade. Will it follow its programming or realize that its directive is pointless? Twig OP, pls nerf.
(Gore) Our latest look at EA’s World War I shooter showcases cinematics and gameplay footage from the Sinai Peninsula portion of its single player campaign. We’d call bull on the graphics, but Star Wars: Battlefront already proved us wrong. Open beta starts 8/31/16.
