Bethesda released a new trailer for Prey. This trailer shows off the Talos I station and how it is a character in its own right.

The aliens have escaped containment and taken over Talos I. But Prey isn’t only about fighting an invasion. And it’s not just an epic journey to figure out who you are, what you’re doing aboard this space station, and how you’ll save humanity from the Typhon threat. Prey is also about the space station itself. A shining testament to mankind’s unbridled ambitions, Talos I is more than the setting for Prey. It’s also full of secrets to discover and hidden layers to uncover. But, most of all, Talos I poses a unique threat to the player all by itself. 

Prey will be available on May 5, 2017, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. 

 

Prey is looking more and more epic with each trailer and we are eagerly awaiting its arrival. We hope to have a review up around launch.

That’s seven full days for players to adventure through Tamriel, build and grow characters, conquer Delves and Dolmens, and unravel another incredibly epic Elder Scrolls saga.

 

Maybe you’ve been reading about our enormous new Chapter, The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, coming June 6 or you’ve heard about how players at Game Informer, MMORPG.com, and MassivelyOP.com all voted ESO the ‘Best MMO of 2016’ and wondered what you might be missing. This is the best  chance to find out for free and hone your skills before heading back to Vvardenfell in June.

The Elder Scrolls Online is a truly unique MMO. It started out with a rocky launch but has truly come into its own as a worthy entry in The Elder Scrolls series. I fully recommend checking out this free play week. Now is the time to try it out if you were ever curious, or if the upcoming Morrowind expansion stoked your interest.

Atlus Co., Ltd. (Setagayaku Tokyo, Chief Executive Officer: Akira Nomoto) announced that following the launch of the critically acclaimed Persona 5 in North America and Europe, the game has shipped more than 1.5 million copies worldwide.

To celebrate the launch of the game, there will be a Persona live concert event on Aug. 2 at the Yokohama Arena in Yokohama, Japan. Please stay tuned for upcoming news on Persona 5 and the Persona series in the future!
Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled youth who live dual lives. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high-schooler – attending class, after school activities and part-time jobs. But they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people. Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the “self;” the game’s heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective mask and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and use it to strive to help those in need. Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern-day society wears.
Persona 5 is now available in the Americas and Europe, for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. The game is rated M by the ESRB.
It is great to hear that Persona 5 has done so well. The game is amazing and deserves a large audience. Hopefully it will continue to sell well. Let us hope that the upcoming mainline Shin Megami Tensei game also sell well.

NetherRealm Studios and WB Games have released the fourth story trailer for Injustice 2. This one gives us a lot more context on what will happen and the overall plot, while also showing off some characters and the new divisions. I just hope they aren’t showing too much, and leave some surprises because the story mode does look interesting. Injustice 2 looks like a much bigger version of the first game, and it is exciting to see it come together. We will have a review around launch time.

No GravatarWB Games and NetherRealm Studios have released a new Injustice 2 trailer, this time to show off Captain Cold. The character seems to take a lot of influence from the Mortal Kombat series and Sub-Zero in particular, while also bringing some new mechanics to fighting games by NetherRealm Studios. Captain Cold shows just how much the game is shaking things up, and it is likely he will be a fan favourite, especially if the rumors are true that Mr. Freeze will be an alt. outfit for him.

 

Sworn to ending all crime, the Regime hunted down and brutally executed every member of the Rogues, including Captain Cold’s sister. Using his skills as a thief and his iconic Cold Gun, Cold now seeks his vengeance. He’ll gladly use the Society to achieve it.

See the trailer below.
