The 'Closed Technical Test' will be made available on an unspecified date for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Issues like, "Hey, this ancient mountain temple is burning to the ground. How in the heck do I cross this chasm?" and, "Man, totally need to find a way to get to that rock formation." And with the answer to both being an emphatic "Grapple!" we get a look at Lara's upgraded grappling hook in a new Rise of the Tomb Raider trailer. Plus, a fantastic looks at some of the locations and tombs found in the game.
And by all we mean, all. Orcs, humans, elves, goblins, trolls, and other fantastical beings all vying for the ball, trying to make up precious yards, and leaving their dreams of conquering the Ash Lands of Gwendellia at the door. And all in the hopes of scoring a touchdown by the way of taking the ball into the end zone and scoring points for their team. Surprised we know a little bit about American Football? Well, we do love orcs, and Blood Bowl II is shaping up to be a viable Madden Football alternative. For those of us that enjoy a hefty dose of fantasy violence.
Who goes by the name of River and belongs to Joel Burgess, the lead level designer of Fallout 4.

Anyway, to make this a little more news worthy click through for a new four minute gameplay video.

Either way, we have Umbrella Corps a new online shooter from Capcom set in the world of Resident Evil. Due for release early next year as a moderately priced digital release (on PC and PlayStation 4), get a glimpse of what using a zombie as a tactical shield looks like in the debut trailer.
Developer Jonathan Blow's follow up to Braid has been a long time coming. Originally meant to launch on PC and PlayStation 4 during the launch video of the console, the game has seen a number of delays. But, according to Blow this was all due to making the game as good as it could be. With the end product expected to be much larger in scope than what was originally intended.
Graphics demos exist for a number of reasons. For one they can show off the latest tools and effects available to developers, and second they give people a glimpse at a possible future. But above all that they're pure eye candy. Originally unveiled at GDC 2013 to show of the cinematic and rendering capabilities of Unreal Engine 4, Epic Games have now made available to all Unreal Engine users, the entire "Infiltrator" project.
In a new Let's Play style video we get a closer look at the upcoming Total War: Warhammer, this time focusing on a Dwarf campaign mission. With the epic scope of the Total War franchise and the new fantasy setting of Warhammer, this is definitely shaping up to be quite a departure for the series. Yet still, what we see looks and feels like a Total War game. Totally. But with the added awesome of epic flame launchers and giant trolls.
