No GravatarAfter the Fallout 4 trailer came out today, there has been an enormous amount of excitement about the game.  During careful review of the newly released trailer of the game, it does indeed appear that the game will be set in Boston, Massachusetts.

According to historical fiction author, Sophie Turner, the image of the ship with rocket boosters on it does appear to be the USS Constitution, which typically has docked in Boston in the past.  Also, an image of the Bunker Hill monument, the Paul Revere statue, and the Old North Church are visible as well.

This monument of Paul Revere has a Steam Punk-type dirigible in the background.

The Bunker Hill monument looks to be dilapidated from nuclear war.

Bethesda_Countdown

No GravatarEarlier today, Bethesda tweeted out a link that appears to be a countdown to a Fallout 4 announcement.  The tweet first appeared from the @BethesdaStudios account and was quickly retweeted by their official Twitter account, @Bethblog.

The tweet contains the hashtag, “#PleaseStandBy,” and gives a link to the webpage http://fallout.bethsoft.com with a countdown ticker with less than twenty-four hours on the clock.  The countdown clock is in a style that has previously been associated with the Fallout series.  The website http://falout4.com did contain the same countdown clock as well.  However, at the time of this publication, it appears to have been taken down.

Both the initial @BethesdaStudios Twitter account and the @Bethblog account have a picture of the clock as the header for their pages with an “RP” or “Rating Pending” ESRB rating in the lower right hand corner.

“Fallout 4″ and “Bethesda” immediately began trending on Twitter as speculation that an announcement for the fourth installment of the popular action-RPG is imminent.  It has been rumored that Bethesda may announce Fallout 4 since they are hosting their first ever E3 press conference this year.  Bethesda’s E3 conference is scheduled for June 14 at 7 pm PT.

We will be following this closely as more details are available.

KingsQuest_logo

No GravatarSierra has released a new developer diary trailer today, featuring how The Odd Gentlemen is creating the re-imagined version of the adventure game King’s Quest.

The developer studio’s Art Director Evan Cagle and Producer Lindsey Rostal pull back the curtain to show us how the artwork of King’s Quest is transferred to digital media and brings the world to life.

In 1990 during the development of King’s Quest V, publisher Sierra created a way for their artists to draw, scan them to a PC and then create the King’s Quest world. Now a quarter of a century later, The Odd Gentlemen is now using a similar technique to bring King’s Quest to current platforms.

King’s Quest was created by Ken and Roberta Williams and was released in May 1984. The beginning of what would become a a thirst for adventure games, along with other titles like Space Quest, Police Quest and Leisure Suit Larry put Sierra on the forefront of PC adventure gaming. As many times within the industry, tastes changed and eventually Sierra clout faded. Fast forward thirty years, Activision purchased the company this past August and King’s Quest will be once again be Sierra’s flag-bearer.

The new King’s Quest will be release in a series of episodes and will begin where the series ended. King Graham, now aged is narrating his past adventures to his granddaughter Gwendolyn.

Earlier this month, the vocal cast was revealed and Christopher Lloyd (Back To The Future, Addams Family) will be voicing the elderly King Graham while Josh Keaton (The Spectacular Spider-Man) will be portraying the younger King Graham. Maggie Elizabeth Jones (Ben and Kate, We Bought A Zoo) will be voicing Gwendolyn. Though roles were not revealed, the game has many others joining the cast including Wallace Shawn (The Princess Bride, Toy Story), Tom Kenny (Adventure Time, SpongeBob SquarePants) and Zelda Williams (The Legend of Korra) along with Michael Benyaer, Loretta Devine, Gideon Emery, Jean Gilpin, Michael Gough, Andy Pessoa, Kevin Michael Richardson, Kath Soucie, Fred Tatasciore, Richard White and Michael-Leon Wooley. This cast can only enhance the game.

One piece of information that we are still missing is the release date. The first chapter of King’s Quest is currently on schedule to be released later this year. The game is under development for the PC, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360.

No GravatarUbisoft and developer Ubisoft Montreal announced earlier today the release date for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege as October 13th.

rainbowsixsiege-alphascreenshot

Rainbow Six: Siege is a strategic team-based military first-person shooter and is being developed for the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. The game is inspired by the “reality of counter terrorist operatives around the world”, and the environments will react “realistically, dynamically, and
uniquely based on the size and caliber of bullets used or the amount of explosives that have been set.”

A new short trailer was released along with the release date announcement which you can see below.

The developer is expecting the sales of Rainbow Six: Siege to become their best-selling shooter in the history of Ubisoft, with Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot explains during a recent investors call “Over its lifetime, we believe Rainbow Six: Siege has the potential to become the highest-selling shooter in Ubisoft’s history.”

According to CFO Alain Martine, Rainbow Six games have settled at about three million units, while Far Cry 4 has “exceeded seven million” to date. He continued saying “We believe that Rainbow Six, because of replay-ability and multi-player, might have the potential to better than Far Cry over its lifetime.” Taking those numbers into account, Rainbow Six: Siege will have to sell over double

What are your thought’s on Rainbow Six: Siege, is this something you are interested in purchasing? Do you think the game can sell as many units as Ubisoft is saying? Let us know in the comments below.

“The ability to lead an underground gang, commandeer any vehicle on hand and use modern tools to take on an expansive and fast-paced Victorian London sets this game apart,” said Marc-Alexis Côté, creative director, Ubisoft. “Assassin’s Creed Syndicate has been in development for more than two years and this new modern take on the living open world will please Assassin’s Creed fans and newcomers alike.”

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will be available worldwide on October 23 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Windows PC version will have the release date confirmed at a later date, with Ubisoft stating that the game will be released this fall.
