Gamescom 2015 - Mafia III First Trailer Revealed

Written by Joffy S on 05 August 2015 at 12:59

The world’s first Mafia III trailer has been revealed. 2K Games and Hangar 13’s open-world mobster tale is coming in 2016, but on the basis of this early trailer it's looking in fine shape already.

Mafia 3 is set in 1968, with protagonist Lincoln Clay returning home from years fighting in Vietnam. He's back in New Orleans and finds the local Italian mob has double-crossed his family. It looks to be a tale of revenge, as Lincoln and his cohorts form a mob of their own, catching and disposing of a local gangster. [More]

Gamescom 2015 - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Trailer Is The End Of An Era

Written by Neil Soutter on 05 August 2015 at 12:36

I’m a strong believer that the three most important things in life are: water, food, and Metal Gear Solid. So it was with a heavy heart I saw the latest Phantom Pain trailer remind us that this is the end of an era - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will reportedly be the last mainline outing in the series, and certainly the last from Hideo Kojima.

On the basis of this latest trailer however, it’s going to go out with a bang. MGS 5 is a prequel to the events of the original Metal Gear Solid, depicting how Big Boss went from loyal footsoldier to Solid Snake’s arch-nemesis. And father, incidentally, in typical mind-melting Metal Gear form. Here in the trailer we get to see Big Boss’ thirst for revenge grow, taking on the mysterious Skull Face, a flaming man, and a child-like version of Psycho Mantis. [More]

Gamescom 2015 - Its A New Dawn For The Latest Final Fantasy XV Trailer

Written by Joffy S on 05 August 2015 at 11:50

Square Enix has debuted a new Final Fantasy XV trailer during Gamescom. The ‘Dawn’ trailer is set 15 years before the upcoming game, teeing up the events which leads to Noctis and his buddies heading off on a grand adventure. The trailer’s a sombre affair this time around, showing the bond between a young Noctis and his father King Regis.

If you were hoping to see a bit more of Final Fantasy XV in action you’re going to be left wanting. This one’s all about setting up the plot events, but we can’t be the only ones hoping to see a bit more of what the game will actually be like soon. [More]

Gamescom 2015 - Latest Mirrors Edge Catalyst Trailer Is Free-running Perfection

Written by Neil Soutter on 05 August 2015 at 11:15

A five-minute gameplay demonstration of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst managed to single-handedly steal the show during EA’s Gamescom 2015 press briefing. The run-through shows an entire mission as Faith bounds across the cityscape with the aim of infiltrating the towering Elysium skyscraper. We get the low-down on Faith’s full-range of free-running abilities, which lets her clamber across rooftops and up buildings in seconds.

Which is all just as well, because it isn't long before Faith attracts some unwanted attention. Rather than relying on an itchy trigger finger however, she must make use of her nimble abilities to outfox guards and evade their gunfire. [More]

Gamescom 2015 - DICE Announces 40-Ship Star Wars Battlefront Fighter Squadron Mode

Written by Stuart Thomas on 05 August 2015 at 10:40

I thought Star Wars Battlefront was going to have a tough time becoming even more of a spectacle, but EA has taken the wraps off of a 20-play Fighter Squadron mode. In a move that should stave off the ‘no space battles’ critics, Fighter Squadron pits 10 vs 10 human players, with an additional 20 AI-controlled ships paving the way to massive 40-ship battles.

Fighter Squadron’s all about dogfighting, with aerial combat between some of Star Wars’ most iconic ships. The Hero power-up also makes a return, so players can even taken control of the Millennium Falcon or Boba Fett’s Slave-1 for some Battlefield domination. X-Wings, A-Wings, TIE fighters, Interceptors; you name it, you can weave it through laser fire and crash it into terra firma with a thud. [More]

Gamescom 2015 - Fresh Need For Speed Trailer Shows The Journey From Zero To Hero

Written by Stuart Thomas on 05 August 2015 at 10:05

EA kicked off its Gamescom 2015 press conference with a bit of street racing style, showing off a new trailer for the upcoming Need For Speed reboot. A branching narrative and a deep customisation system lie at the heart of Ghost Games’ racer, with a blend of in-game and live-action cutscenes throughout the game’s single-player campaign.

A number of real-life racing ‘icons’ will be cropping up in Need For Speed, including Ken Block, Magnus Walker, and the Risky Devil racing crew. It seems Ghost Games really is pushing the story this time around. The inclusion of live-action footage and real characters is intended to create a more involving experience. Or a teeth-gnashing exercise in corny acting, but we’ll have to wait and see. [More]

Homefront: The Revolution Is Alive And Kicking At Gamescom - Check Out Two New Trailers

Written by Joffy S on 04 August 2015 at 17:31

Few games deserve a sequel less than Homefront. The original couldn’t have been more middling if it tried. But here we sit, four years, three developers and three publishers later, with Deep Silver and Dambuster Studios’ Homefront: The Revolution. It was a bit of a surprise showing during Microsoft’s Gamescom press briefing, but we did get our first look at actual gameplay.

Homefront: The Revolution is set four years after the original, and the Korean invasion of North America is wholly successful. The protagonist Ethan Brady isn’t best pleased, and he’s organising a resistance movement in the suburbs of Philadelphia. During the live event I actually noted it looked a heck of a lot like Half-Life 2, and in the PR blast we got sent out that’s exactly how they’re keen to pitch it. We’ve got the first pair of trailers, cinematic and gameplay, so you can judge for yourself whether Homefront 2 is a revolution or stuck in 2004 with Half-Life 2. [More]

Total War Dev Creative Assembly Working On Halo Wars 2 For Windows 10 PCs And Xbox One

Written by Neil Soutter on 04 August 2015 at 16:51

Tucked in right at the end of its Gamescom 2015 press conference, Microsoft had one big blockbusting surprise left for PC gamers. 343 Industries, in conjunction with Total War developer Creative Assembly, is working on Halo Wars 2 for launch in 2016.

Halo Wars 2 is a sequel to the Xbox 360 real-time strategy game set within the Halo universe. The original was created by the now defunct Ensemble Studios, so it’ll be interesting to see what strategy specialists Creative Assembly can do with it in their hands. We’ve got the very first trailer of Halo Wars 2, which is coming in fall 2016 for Windows 10 PCs and Xbox One. [More]

First Dark Souls 3 Gameplay Footage Premiered

Written by Joffy S on 04 August 2015 at 16:20

Microsoft’s Gamescom 2015 press conference might have been extremely Xbox One-heavy, but we did at least get our first look at Dark Souls 3 in action. Souls fans will be instantly at home here; Dark Souls 3 looks like an evolution rather than a revolution, ramping up the spectacle and the scale of the battles on offer.

From Software’s darkly atmospheric action-RPG sequel looks like it also takes a few cues from Bloodborne in its pacier combat and Gothic environments. Expect plenty of bruising boss battles, punishing combat, and a healthy pinch of macabre adventure. [More]
