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.
Out today, we're ready to give you our verdict on Creative Assembly's latest Total War venture. You may of heard about it, it's the one set in the Warhammer universe. A fantasy world full of magic, fantastic creatures, quests to retrieve mythical swords, and perpetual conflict. In other words the perfect fit for the traditionally real-history-only Total War.
We've got three new trailers today, so instead of posting a news piece for each one, increasing the site's traffic, page count views and what not, we'd thought we'd put them all in one neat package. There's one for the new Platinum developed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game that launched yesterday, one for Square Enix's first game from its Tokyo RPG Factory team, plus a launch trailer for Mirror's Edge Catalyst. In other news, I might be fired.
With four free titles each month, including backwards compatible Xbox 360 games, Microsoft's Games with Gold program has been on a bit of a roll lately. Which looks to continue next month with Xbox One owners getting the often hilarious Goat Simulator as well as the open world driving of Ubisoft's The Crew. Plus, Super Meat Boy and XCOM: Enemy Unknown as backwards compatible Xbox 360 titles.
With a huge new land to explore, new quests, characters, and story, the Blood & Wine expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt looks to send the series out on a high note. Or a slightly higher one, as we're kind of hard pressed to envision a better RPG experience than last year's main game. In anticipation of next weeks release on May 31 we've got a fantastic new launch trailer. One that features questionable or spot-on music, depending on who you ask.
Called Fallout Cascadia the size of the mod has been described as somewhere between the recent Far Harbor expansion and Fallout 3. With a team of 18 people working on the project, the goal is to make it as widely available as possible. Which means it may even end up on consoles. With no release date set, work on the project has increased steadily since the release of the Creation Kit.
A few months back Microsoft opened up to the possibility of cross-network play between Xbox One and PC, even going so far as to mention that they'd like to do the same with Sony and the PS4. But before that happens, if at all, the first cross-platform game that lets Xbox One and PC players go at it has arrived. Well, is already here, as we're talking about Rocket League.
Alani, the first of five new free heroes coming to Battleborn, is available now for Season Pass and Digital Deluxe owners. Everyone else will have to wait until May 31 and cough up an unreasonable number of in-game credits to unlock her. But, based on two new reveal videos for the character, you may just want to start hording those credits as Alani's water-based attacks and healing both look pretty cool in action.
