Devolver Digital has no shortage of stylish looking games on its roster, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that they will be publishing Sloclap's new online combat thing Absolver. A game that is said to be a mix of melee action, RPG, PvP, and PvE content. Phew! That's a lot of acronyms. As a new new studio made up of industry veterans, work on Absolver has been progressing for about a year now, with the title set to debut at E3 next month with a release planned for 2017.
Usually the words live-action don't go down well with games, thanks to a long history of crummy films in addition to forgettable trailers. The Mechanical Apartheid, a new trailer/short-film created in anticipation for the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided thankfully doesn't fall into either category. Instead it plays out like a trailer for a pretty awesome looking sci-fi film that doesn't exist.
Ghost Recon Wildlands, the new open-world Ghost game from Ubisoft first made an appearance at the publisher's E3 2015 conference. And as we haven't really seen or heard much about it since, today's new trailer does the double duty of giving us an updated look at the game as well as remind us all that it's a thing still in development.
With a streamlined and cheaper Xbox One revision to launch later this year. Or so the rumours would have you believe. According to sources in a report over at Kotaku, 2017 will see the release of a more powerful Xbox One -- codenamed Scorpio. One that might be powerful enough to support the Oculus Rift.
The Australian developed Super Mutant Alien Assualt is a fantastic looking hyper kinetic arcade platformer that's due for release in the next few months. Which should come as no surprise with a title like Super Mutant Alien Assualt. With randomly generated levels and a slew of weapons and unlocks to choose from, coupled with retro-inspired visuals and great animation, this is a game no fan of brutal, classic, old school arcade action should miss out on.
For those that need a refresher, Riders of Icarus is a new MMO with a focus on capturing awesome mythical mounts and then riding them into battle. With the game heading into its final Closed Beta before launch, if the idea of taming and riding mythical creatures that look and sound amazing sounds like something you'd be interested in, be sure to sign up now. The Closed Beta will begin on June 2 and continue through to June 7.
With narration that sounds like it was written by that racist Microsoft AI chatbot from a few months back. Now, this probably could have been avoided if the game was already out. Which, if you've followed the release of this new Mega Man inspired game, should have been a number of times. With a firm release date of June 21, this trailer probably won't get you excited to check it out. Who knows, maybe you dig one liners that capture the zeitgeist of late '90s corporate marketing aimed at no-good teens.
Currently available to play for free as a "pre-alpha" release, the new Unreal Tournament from Epic Games looks pretty much exactly how you'd expect an Unreal Tournament game to look. But with fancy Unreal Engine 4 visuals. With a steady stream of updates being added, a new map called Underland has been introduced. A sort of Mayan ruins type of affair, but with more plasma balls of death.
The third episode of I/O Interactive's new all-caps HITMAN game will be out on May 31 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Called Marrakesh, after the Moroccan city where it takes place, players can expect a visual feast of sprawling alleys, rooftop terraces, night market stalls, and shisha cafes. And probably, the opportunity to assassinate someone whilst wearing a Fez.
