Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games for good and evil players alike, today announced new content for Tyranny, the award-winning role-playing game (RPG) developed by Obsidian Entertainment. Tyranny: Bastard’s Wound will launch later this year on Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs, and will offer players a new major quest line set in the mysterious illegal settlement of Bastard’s Wound. Read more about the upcoming expansion here: https://www.paradoxplaza.com/tyranny-bastards-wound   In addition, for players who can’t wait to experience new content, a new Event Pack has been released today, titled “Tales from the Tiers,” featuring new world events and expanded quests for the original Tyranny. Tales from the Tiers is available now; find it here: https://www.paradoxplaza.com/tyranny-tales-from-the-tiers

Tyranny, an original RPG from Obsidian Entertainment, takes place in the fantasy realm of the Tiers, where evil has conquered the known world and it’s up to the player to decide what is right or wrong as a Fatebinder – to mercilessly enforce the law or recklessly flout it. During this quest, the player will encounter Bastard’s Wound, a settlement and refuge from the dark, war-torn world, established in secret as a haven for those fleeing the wrath of Kyros the Overlord. The player must decide what is to become of the inhabitants as they mete out Kyros’ justice.
Featuring new characters and storylines, Bastard’s Wound takes a closer look at the race of the Beastmen, the fate of the refugee settlements, and all-new companion quests featuring three of Tyranny’s most memorable party members: Verse, Barik, and Lantry. Bastard’s Wound will also arrive alongside a free update to Tyranny, including new voice acting, expanded content in the game’s third act, and an all-new path to an unseen ending.
What’s more, players can explore new content starting today with a series of hidden stories from the world of Tyranny in Tales from the Tiers, a new Event Pack available now. The Event Pack features the untold stories of the many inhabitants of the hazardous, war-torn Tiers, including rebels, merchants, servants of Kyros, and even dangerous creatures. With new random encounter events, new quests, and new interactions with iconic Tyranny characters, Tales from the Tiers will allow players to experience a new facet of the game’s rich and compelling story.

 

 

This is a really cool expansion for Tyranny and is good to see. This author is happy that Obisdian is making more great RPG’s and this is another great example. The expansion detailed here shows that they still have what it takes to make great games.

Bethesda has released two trailers for The Evil Within 2, to show off the game some more.

Set in Union, a crumbling city built using Lily’s mind as the Core, The Evil Within 2 presents a mix of closed off, claustrophobic environments that are reminiscent of the first game, and new, less linear areas that will give you the opportunity to explore at your own pace. You’ll be able to wander freely and poke through all the dark corners of the world at your leisure, but this is still a survival horror game, and ammo and resources will be scarce. You’ll need to prepare carefully and move cautiously as you discover the secrets of Union and unravel Mobius’ plans from within STEM.

The Evil Within 2 releases worldwide Friday the 13th, October 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

 

 

The horrifying things Sebastian experienced in the first game left him scarred, but rather than run from the source of his nightmares, Sebastian chased after them. He spent three years seeking answers to the questions that plagued him and trying to find the organization who ruined his life. Who is Mobius? What do they want? What is the true purpose of STEM?

But from this darkness comes a chance at redemption.
The Evil Within 2 releases worldwide Friday the 13th, October 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The game certainly looks good, and will hopefully succeed in the area where the original fell short. That isn’t to say the original is bad, but it definitely had some shortcomings. That said, This game might just be what we are looking for.

From a troubled past, to a bloody career as a soldier, and now this: years trapped in the Dreamlands, forced into combat with other Champions from across the waking world. No, ol’ Terror-Billy hasn’t had the best of luck – but in Quake Champions, he’ll be able to take all the skills he’s picked up over the years and really put them to the test. You got your first look at BJ’s Quake Champions debut during our E3 2017 Showcase on Sunday, and now you can see him in action in our latest trailer.

Bethesda really is going all out to make Quake Champions something fans will like. I truly hope fans will take to it and that this will lead to a revitalization for the franchise. Quake deserves a new chance and this could do it.

Bethesda has released several new trailers for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. The game is looking absolutely incredible and was a real standout this E3.

 

He’s the scourge of the Nazi regime. The one man who can send shivers down the spines of elite soldiers. Considered a cowardly killer by the Nazi conquerors – an utterly abhorrent fiend – BJ Blazkowicz has viciously attacked and assassinated some of the top Nazi operatives, earning the moniker “Terror-Billy.” And now, you can possess your very own Terror-Billy action figure, exclusively in the Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Collector’s Edition!

Along with the Terror-Billy action figure, the Wolfenstein II Collector’s Edition includes the full game in a steelbook case and a double-sided poster, all in an amazing box that recalls some of our favorite childhood toys. Available for pre-order, the Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Collector’s Edition will release on October 27, 2017, on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

For BJ Blazkowicz, this time it’s personal. Or, make that more personal. Or… personaler.

Whatever the case, BJ is back to wage war against the evil Nazi regime – but in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, the front lines have moved from Europe to his homeland. Nazis have taken over America, and BJ wants his country back. His goal: to rally the resistance and restore peace and freedom to his beloved nation. And he’s not just fighting for himself; BJ’s partner Anya is pregnant with twins, so the future of his family is at stake as well. Learn more at https://beth.games/2sZfLev

Watch our new video, featuring exclusive commentary from the team at developer MachineGames, for new insights into BJ’s character, the American setting, and the conflict ahead.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will release on October 27, 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

 

 

 

MachineGames isn’t just known for their strong storytelling. They’re also a powerhouse in the realm of pure gameplay. And their latest game is no different. Announced at the Bethesda E3 2017 Showcase, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus delivers the goods when it comes to intense – and intensely fun – shooter action.

“What really puts MachineGames on the map is that while we’re making really strong narrative games, we give enough room to have the proper gameplay experience,” says Senior Game Designer Arcade Berg. “It’s not that one is overpowering the other.”

From upgraded weapons to enhanced dual-wielding to bumped-up Nazi enemies, watch our latest video – with exclusive insights from the development team – for a first look at what’s new in The New Colossus.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will release on October 27, 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Are you excited for Wolfenstein II? We sure are!

Bethesda had their E3 conference and it was certainly a unique one

It opened with the employee’s kids talking about their parents job making games. This was a cute video.

 

 

We had a an introduction to Bethesdaland and the mostly prerecorded footage.  This was the theme of the event and it really created a good mood.

 

Bethesda started about games proper with their Virtual Reality projects with Doom VFR announced and Fallout 4 VR announced

 

Next, they discussed Elder Scrolls online. The game has 10 million players, and they talked about the Morrowind expansion. They showed a video montage of players with the game before showing upcoming content with “Horns of the Reach”  and “Clockwork City”.

 

They then went on to discuss how modding has been big for their games. There have been 300 million mod downloads and now they are shaking up mods with the announcement of Creation Club.  A new way to get mods which won’t interfere with achievements and are higher quality. This is coming summer 2017, but may involve paid mods

 

Speaking of Elder Scrolls, the next subject was Elder Scrolls Legends. Content like the Dark Brotherhood story and more was discussed with the main focus being the reveal of the Skyrim expansion. Titled “Heroes of Skyrim” it releases 6/29/17.

 

And on the subject of Skyrim, we finally got a true look at the Switch version. It looks like a well-made version and has something surprising. Amiibo support. This includes all the Zelda amiibo ever released and the Smash Bros amiibo. There are also motion controls but no word on HD rumble.

From there, we moved to a new Dishonored II expansion being shown. In this, Daud is back with Billie Lurk in Dishonored Death of the Outsider.

Next Bethesda announced the Quake world championships and revealed BJ Blazkowicz for Quake champions.

 

Last up were two new reveals, with The Evil within 2 announced for  Friday, October 13 release.

 

and Wolfenstein 2 the new colossus was officially announced.
