Which, if you're reading this with at least a primary school level of education, you can figure out that it means Porsche cars making an appearance in all foreseeable Forza games. The partnership, a six-year deal, was announced at a fancy auto show earlier today alongside a Forza Horizon 3 Porsche Car Pack. Which is nice, because my metallic pink VL turbo needs a bit of a break.
Because he's an awakened automaton you see, and all that newfound sentience is being directed toward killing all living organisms. As you do. Although described as "a woke AF killing machine", in an attempt to appeal to that most mythical of marketing targets -- the cool teen who gets it and both understands, admires, and detests the idea of corporate sponsored identity -- Clutch is actually the most normal sounding Quake Champion announced so far.
Available April 27 for PS4 and Xbox One (yeah, looks like PC is getting the ol' skiperoo here), the free demo will let players experience the opening hour of the game as they take control of Morgan Yu and board the Talos I. And it wouldn't be a piece of Prey news without a new trailer, so there's one of those too. At this point I'm so ready to play this, that I'm more than willing to stick a needle in my eye.
Mainly because prior to today's Nintendo Direct the only word we got from the Big N prior to the broadcast was that the focus would primarily be on the upcoming multiplayer games, Splatoon 2 and ARMS. And hey, it's good to be wrong. After the reminder that later this month every Switch owner will purchase their second game for the console thanks to the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe came a number of cool game announcements for 2017.
Early this morning Nintendo held a new Direct that focused on the upcoming multiplayer Switch titles Splatoon 2 and ARMS. Plus, a few surprise announcements too. More on those in a bit. First off, both game finally have solid release dates with Splatoon 2 expected to drop July 21 and ARMS on June 16. Next up, a new co-op horde mode was revealed for Splatoon 2, with ARMS specifically shown off as a deep fighter with competitive potential.
In a surprise move Sega has given Platinum Games' all-time classic action game Bayonetta a PC release. Available right now on Steam this version of Bayonetta offers up the game playable in 4K at 60fps, which is nice. Also, the release marks the first of many more PC conversions (which is what Sega is calling this as to not associate themselves with the taint of being labelled a port) in the works from Sega. Which is also nice.
And be available for the somewhat reasonable price of $54.95. Which is pretty good. What started off as a story expansion for Uncharted 4, The Lost Legacy is rumoured to feature up to 10 hours of new content. And that's new content starring Chloe and Nadine, with ol' Drake nowhere to be seen. Hey, that rhymes. Better keep that up, so here's a new trailer so you can see what's up.
Although Star Wars Battlefront 2 hasn't officially been revealed yet, we do know that the game is making its debut this weekend at Star Wars Celebration. And ahead of that reveal comes a leaked trailer that looks a lot more character focused than the what we saw with the original. And even though it promises multiplayer battles across all Star Wars era, from prequels up to Episode VII and so forth, there's also a hint that it will feature a proper single-player experience this time around too.
The Xbox Autumn Sale is now on and until April 18 expect to save up to 60% off a number of titles. Or up to 50% if you're not an Xbox Live Gold subscriber.

The first expansion to Ubisoft's open-world co-op stealth shootery extravaganza Ghost Recon Wildlands is due for release next week, April 18, for all platforms. As part of the Season Pass, Narco Road will introduce a bunch of new missions and narcos to take-down. But this time with the added bonus of working your way up the ranks to earn the trust of the elusive El Invisible in order to take him, or her, down.
