No GravatardeathwingA new video has been shared of 13 minutes of the solo campaign of Space Hulk: Deathwing

Space Hulk: Deathwing – end of the technical beta and 13 minutes of uncut gameplay

Space Hulk: Deathwing, the upcoming first-person shooter set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, just ended its Technical Beta. Tens of thousands of players got their hands on the multiplayer co-op mode of the game – in the span of a few days, several millions of Genestealers were purged though relentless assaults led by players who were enthralled by spectacular co-op gameplay served in an immersive rendering of this much-loved setting.

The Beta has helped settle several gameplay adjustments and technical tweaks that the development team has already started to tackle tirelessly. Feedback from the community and players has proven invaluable for the teams at Streum On studio and Focus Home Interactive, who are now putting all their efforts into offering the best possible experience for players when the game releases.

To make the wait until release more bearable, here are 13 minutes of uncut gameplay footage from the single-player campaign. A new Xenos threat has risen from the depths of the Space Hulk. Your Deathwing squad must purge this newly discovered strain, which resembles the Ymgarl Genestealers. These creatures are even more cunning, tough and lethal than regular Genestealers, and their presence on the Space Hulk Olethros remains a mystery. The Psygate, a psychic bridgehead established by the Librarian, enables the Librarian to change equipment and Psychic powers during missions. This allows them adapt to various encounters while exploring the Space Hulk. Squad mates’ loadouts can be also be swapped using the same ability. For example, equipping them with shields and war hammers will transform your squad into a particularly strong and hard hitting force. But, of course, with this setup, your companions won’t be able to deal damage from a distance or heal teammates.

Pre-order now on Steam to get 15% off and one in-game weapon – the Lost Mace of Corswain. Space Hulk: Deathwing is available for download on PC, December 9 before landing on consoles in early 2017.

The game just keeps getting more awesome by the minute. Thank the Emperor!

skylanders

No GravatarskylandersLiam Robertson, a well known contributor to Unseen64 has released a video  where he revealed Skylanders 2017 is cancelled according to multiple sources as well as the fact that the series future is in doubt. This is due to a combination of low sales of the recent games in successive numbers, as well as spinoff material such as the show drawing less viewers than expected, and toy sales slowing down immensely. This could mark the beginning of the end for the Toys to Life genre, following the ending of Disney Infinity and amiibo sales slowing down.

Darksiders

No GravatarTHQ Nordic Released the following

Today, THQ Nordic has released Darksiders Warmastered Edition – the remaster of the original first Darksiders game – on Sony’s PlayStation®4 and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system. Also, we have a brand new trailer here for you.

The PC version of the game will be released on November 29, while the Wii U version will follow at a later stage.

Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War – the first Horseman of the Apocalypse – stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between Heaven and Hell. In the slaughter that ensued, the demonic forces defeated the heavenly hosts and laid claim to the Earth.

  • Apocalyptic Power – Unleash the wrath of War, combining brutal attacks and supernatural abilities to decimate all who stand in your way

  • Extreme Arsenal – Wield a devastating arsenal of angelic, demonic and Earthly weapons; and blaze a trail of destruction atop Ruin, War’s fiery phantom steed

  • Epic Quest – Battle across the wastelands and demon-infested dungeons of the decimated Earth in your quest for vengeance and redemption

  • Character Progression – Uncover powerful ancient relics, upgrade your weapons, unlock new abilities, and customize your gameplay style

  • Battle Heaven and Hell – Battle against all who stand in your way – from war-weary angelic forces to Hell’s hideous demon hordes

I am very curious when the Wii U version is coming, as it will be the last major 3rd party game on the system. We will have a review of this game in the next little while, so look for that soon.

conan-exiles

No GravatarFuncom has released the following

 

Know o Prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of!

Very soon gamers on both PC and Xbox One will get to journey to that very age in Funcom’s upcoming open-world survival game ‘Conan Exiles’. Starting January 31st 2017, players on PC will get to unleash their inner barbarian in Early Access. Soon after, Xbox One players too can jump into the fray as ‘Conan Exiles’ hits the Xbox One Game Preview program in the spring same year. Inspired by the great Robert E. Howard stories, ‘Conan Exiles’ will have players fighting to survive, build, and dominate their enemies in a vast and treacherous open-world in both single- and multiplayer.

To celebrate today’s announcement, Funcom is releasing a brand new trailer showing how the game looks in action. This is the first ‘Conan Exiles’ video released in almost six months and shows the results of the hard work the developers have put into both graphics and gameplay since June.
“The open-world survival genre is ripe for Conan’s conquest,” says Game Director Joel Bylos. “If there ever was a world that can truly test your strength and skill, it is the brutal and savage world of Conan the Barbarian. ‘Conan Exiles’ is not just an empty sandbox, it is a world rich in history where you must discover the secrets of ancient civilizations as you struggle to build your own.”

‘CONAN EXILES’ is an open-world survival game set in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian, the world’s greatest fantasy hero. The game can be played on private and public servers, either in multiplayer or local single-player. In the world of ‘Conan Exiles’, survival is more than tracking down food and water. Journey through a vast seamless world filled with the ruins of ancient civilizations and uncover its dark history and buried secrets as you seek to conquer and dominate the exiled lands yourself. Start with nothing but your bare hands and forge the legacy of your clan, from simple tools and weapons to gigantic fortresses and entire cities. Enslave the bandits of the exiled lands to do your bidding by breaking them on the grueling Wheel of Pain. Sacrifice the beating hearts of your enemies on the blood-soiled altars of your deity to seize true power and glory. Summon the colossal avatar of your god and see them lay waste to your enemies and their homes.

This game is looking amazing, and as a massive fan of Robert E. Howard’s work ( I consider him my favourite writer), I am extremely excited for this game! It looks like a game that pays proper respect to Howard’s work.

dishonored-2

No Gravatardishonored-2Bethesda sent out the following

Dishonored 2 offers the freedom of choice to play and improvise as you like. We’re pleased to announce that even more options to customize your experience to your unique playstyle are coming next month in a free update that will include a New Game + mode and new Custom Difficulty settings. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more details on the free update content and release date.

 

Get exclusive insights from the team at Arkane Studios on how Dishonored 2 embraces the ‘play your way’ philosophy in this newly released video:

 

 

When the mad witch Delilah seizes the throne the fate of your Empire is left hanging in the balance, how far will you go to hunt down your enemies – and take back what’s yours? Will you choose to play as Empress Emily Kaldwin or the royal protector, Corvo Attano? How will you combine your powerful supernatural abilities, weapons and gadgets to eliminate your enemies?

 

Sneak unseen across rooftops and stay hidden in the shadows or openly wreak havoc in the streets. Take out your enemies leaving a trail of blood and bodies in your wake or find other ways to subdue your foes without killing anyone in your path. Looking for a completely different type of challenge? Dishonored 2 even includes the option to play with no powers at all.

 

Reprise your role as a supernatural assassin in Dishonored 2, the follow up to Arkane Studio’s first-person action blockbuster and winner of more than 100 ‘Game of the Year’ awards. Praised by IGN as “amazing” and “a superb sequel”, declared a “masterpiece”  by Eurogamer, and hailed “a must-play revenge tale among the best in its class” by Game Informer, Dishonored 2 is now available worldwide for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

This is quite the interesting update for the game. If you have not yet seen our review, you can read it here
