Well, on May 31 to be exact but we're close enough. What's SMITE? Well, you probably already know the answer to that as it's the worlds most popular action MOBA. Which, refers to a MOBA that isn't played from an isometric point-and-click perspective. Sorry Battleborn. Anyway, after an extensive beta SMITE is ready to launch on PS4.
Mafia III's New Bordeaux is a city inspired by New Orleans of the 1960s. From swamp lands, to suburbs, to late night smoke filled jazz clubs. In a new Mafia III trailer we get to hear the developers of the game talk about the city and its role in the game. Which, unlike previous Mafia games looks to be more than just a pretty non-interactive background.
With the game all set for release next month, the word on the street has been a little bit quiet lately when it comes to No Man's Sky. And now we know why, with the release of Hello Games ambitious new sci-fi game being pushed back a few/several weeks to August 9 (US), August 10 (Europe), and August 12 (UK). The reason? Well with a game as huge in scope as this one, extra time to polish up any remaining rough edges.
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.
