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!

Nicalis sent out the following

 

Independent publisher/developer Nicalis, Inc. is revealing four upcoming console games during the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). The announcements are sure to please fans of recent Nicalis neo-classics like The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ and Cave Story+.

The company’s 2017 line-up includes Tiny Barbarian DX (Nintendo Switch), Ittle Dew 2+ (Nintendo Switch), Blade Strangers (Switch and PlayStation 4) and The End Is Nigh (Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4).

  • Inspired by heroic fantasy fiction, Tiny Barbarian DX is the action-packed adventure of one Barbarian’s quest for vengeance. Developer StarQuail Games has combined engaging 2D platform action and combo-based hack-and-slash combat with retro-style pixel art and a pulse-pounding chiptune soundtrack for Nintendo Switch. The game offers two-player cooperative action, unlockable game modes and multiple homages to classic 8- and 16-bit games in each of its four lengthy episodes.

  • Sassy adventurer Ittle and her reluctant flying friend Tippsie return in Ittle Dew 2+, an upgraded and expanded Nintendo Switch version of the action/adventure puzzle game from developer Ludosity. Stranded on a mysterious island and armed with a few weapons as well as a magical map, our heroine explores the three-dimensional landscape in search of valuable loot and the eight scattered pieces of a raft that could be her ticket home.

  • From veteran Japanese developer Studio Saizensen comes Blade Strangers, a hardcore old-school fighting game with online multiplayer battles for the Switch and PS4. Its refined four-button control scheme makes it easy for beginners to jump right in, but tournament-caliber players will relish the intricate combos, counters and specials. The fighter roster includes characters from previous Studio Saizensen games (like Code of Princess and Sayonara Umihara Kawase), Nicalis games (like Cave Story+) and other surprise entrants.

  • The brand-new game from The Binding of Isaac creator Edmund McMillen and Tyler Glaiel, The End Is Nigh is a sprawling adventure/platformer. Players control Ash, a little black glob trying to make a friend out of the body parts he finds scattered throughout a post-apocalyptic world. As Ash leaps his way through a never-ending onslaught of decaying, mutant creatures, he can collect assorted tumors and hidden video-game cartridges that unlock fully playable mini-games.

This is a really cool lineup, with some awesome games.  Blade Strangers sounds interesting as does Tiny Barbarian DX. Nicalis is making a lot of great moves here.

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.

Bandai Namco and Arc System Works have announced a new Dragon Ball fighting game, Dragon Ball Fighters.

Dragon Ball Fighters will use a three-versus-three team battle system, and allow players to determine  what compatibility they want and select a team. The game will also incorporate the “ultra high speed battles” and “flashy special moves” from the series..

According to producer Tomoko Hiroki, while Dragon Ball titles of recent years have been 3D, they chose 2.5D this time because there were some things that can only be done in that style. While it looks like 2D animation at first glance, it has a broader range of expression as they can shift camera angles and incorporate a lot of unique production not possible in 2D alone.

This is really cool news, and the game sounds absolutely amazing. A traditional 2D Dragon Ball fighting game is something many want and now we are getting it.
