The first of five episodes planned for what's being dubbed Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier finally has a release date -- and that is, drum-roll please, December 20. Just in time for a zombie-filled Christmas season. Doing away with any sort of Season Three branding, A New Frontier has been designed as a bit of a soft reboot with both new and returning players in mind. Even though it stars series regular, Clementine.
In a forthcoming interview with us here at AusGamers, we posed a question to Microsoft's Phil Spencer who serves as, basically, the big boss of the Xbox side of the business. We asked him if seeing Nintendo properties on the Xbox platform was something the team could look at seriously, considering Mario and Pokemon are now on iOS and Nintendo has openly said they're looking into the mobile space for other opportunities.
The third and final installment in the episodic Nova Covert Ops series for Blizzard's StarCraft II is out today and concludes the story that began with Nova awaking in a strange Defenders of Man facility. The series which picks up the story after the events of Legacy of the Void provides players with what's essentially a new Terran campaign. And with all three parts available now, we're pretty excited to dive back into another great StarCraft story.
Coming November 30, Angel City’s Most Wanted brings back a fan favourite Titanfall 1 map to the world of Titanfall 2. And judging by the name of the DLC you can probably put two and two together to realise that it's the Angel City map. The first big update will also bring a number of other things like a new weapon and a whole bunch of Titan kits. Plus, purchasable cosmetic items. Which we'd take any day over a Season Pass style map pack roll-out.
For a few months now Blizzard has been teasing an overhaul to Overwatch's Symmetra, the one hero that for many felt limited to a very specific defensive role. That being putting up a few turrets and building a teleporter to better help defend a capture point. In a new update video Overwatch Game Director Jeff Kaplan outlines the changes coming to Symmetra in the PTR very soon -- and they're pretty substantial. With everything from a new ability to a second, yeah second!, ultimate.
But, you probably shouldn't get your hopes up too high as it looks to be more of a collection of mini-games than a VR version of the excellent NBA2K17. That being said it will feature NBA 2K17 cover athlete and All-Star Paul George who will provide commentary and guide the player through the mini-games. Available for PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, and Samsung Gear VR, NBA 2KVR Experience will be available for AUD $22.95. Click through for the 2D non-virtual trailer.
Turn out that what Final Fantasy XV needed was a video that had narration explaining what was happening on screen. Out next week, Final Fantasy XV has been a long time coming for fans of the series. But its mix of real-world and fantasy and sci-fi left many of us confused. Now, with the new 101 Trailer, you can get a quick rundown of the setting, characters, combat, mechanics, skills, summons, and more.
Available at 7PM (yeah, the press release noted the exact time) The Division gets its second expansion Survival on Xbox One and Windows 10. The new expansion comes as part of the 1.5 patch to the game which also brings a number of new additions, and follow up from the almost complete shake-up of the core-game that was patch 1.4. As for 'Survival' it sounds pretty great as it puts up to 24 players in a snow and blizzard-drenched version of Manhattan as they fight the cold, each other, and hunters in search of an antidote and extraction.
And it looks like a pretty standard "running around a space station shooter", which we guess is a good thing. Certainly, people won't be spending the majority of their time with Star Citizen playing standard competitive FPS capture point modes, so this is probably more of a showcase to lets us know that in addition to the space flyin', dog fightin', planetary landin', and following the rules and docking guidelines of landing a Class M568 Cargo Freighter onto an M-Class Space Station, there will also be some shootin'.
And it sounds exactly like a horde mode. With 50 waves of increasingly more powerful enemies to take out, upgrades and defenses to build, treasure to collect, and a special boss encounter every 10 waves. Called Uncharted 4: Survival this new co-op mode is expected to drop mid-December and comes hot on the heels of a recent PlayStation 4 Pro update to the game -- which makes what's arguably 2016 prettiest game, even prettier.
