And it took me until now to figure out that the two opposing teams in the game are the Law and the Breakers. Yep, quite the epiphany. LawBreakers from Cliff Bleszinski and BossKey Studios is a modern take on the arena shooter of old, with classes, sort-of heroes, and lots of fast-paced shooting. In a new trailer we get a quick look at one of the characters from each team, The Enforcers.
Announced at E3, the slimline Xbox One S is all set to hit our shores on August 2 with a special 2TB launch edition for $549. Not only 40% smaller than the original Xbox One, the S also does away with the clunky power brick of old as it features a built-in power supply. Plus, support for 4K video and HDR. That being High Dynamic Range. The good stuff.
The thing about zombies is that they're a particularly hard bunch to get rid of, what with the rising form the dead and all. With a listing of PS4 trophies for the original Dead Rising popping up on Exophase, many were left wondering if this was the first sign of an impending remastered re-release. Turns out that it is, with both the original Dead Rising and Dead Rising 2 headed to PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in the future.
If it's not on your radar yet, we need to tell you to stop what you're doing and take a closer look at Rare's new IP, Sea of Thieves. Seriously. Because it's one of the most fun games we've had the pleasure of playing, and we were also lucky enough to have a chat with the notoriously reclusive studio about their new endeavour.
Remember that Tatooine VR deal that ILMxLAB created for the HTC Vive that looked pretty cool? Well, it's called Trials on Tatooine, and will be free for everyone to check out this week on Steam. And with that project serving as more of a test bed for interactive VR experiences Lucasfilm has announced that it's partnering up with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice writer David Goyer for a canonical Darth Vader VR story thing.
Which, like the Minecraft - Story Mode physical release, will contain the first episode on disc with a Season Pass to download the remaining four episodes as they become available. The first episode in the highly anticipated series also will make its debut next month on just about every platform too, from mobile to PC to console.
Which should make those that fit the Venn diagram of HTC Vive owners and Rick and Moryt fans, super excited. Because Rick and Morty is full of sci-fi hilarity, and the HTC Vive is basically science fiction. Coming from the developers behind the fun Job Simulator, Rick and Morty Simulator: Virtual Rick-ality is a collaboration between Owlchemy Labs and Adult Swim Games. And there's a teaser trailer to boot!
Chewbacca! Trench run! At Star Wars Celebration Europe, EA and DICE unveiled the first footage from the Death Star expansion coming to Star Wars Battlefront in September. The new expansion will see the game leave the confines of a planet's atmosphere for the first time, with the debut of the 'that's no moon' Death Star battle-station. The expansion will include maps that take place inside and outside of the giant grey behemoth, including the ability to fly through trenches.
Which means that of course it's being published by Adult Swim. Out July 26 for PC and PS4, Headlander is the latest game from Double Fine. The studio behind hits like Psychonauts, Broken Age, Massive Chalice, and the recent Day of the Tentacle remake. A new gameplay video has debuted for what may be the studio's first side-scroller, and it all makes as much sense story-wise as the heading above.
