Remember when RockStar Games announced that Grand Theft Auto V would be coming to current generation consoles like the PlayStation 4 sometime soon? The studio revealed this week that the latest GTA will be making its way on to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 18th 2014 and will be available on Windows PC on January 27th 2015!

Will there be better graphics? Most definitely, but that is not the only improvement that RockStar is working on for GTA’s 8th generation debut. Multiplayer matches will now feature up to 30 players on PS4 & Xbox One,  they’ve also added new vehicles, new weapons, new activities and enhanced damage / weather systems.

Bungie’s latest title – the  MMO/FPS hybrid Destiny - is now available through both physical and digital retailers. To celebrate Activision released a live action trailer. This live action trailer was directed by Josepth Kosinki whom is probably most well known for helming TRON: legacy. He’s coupled his live action trailer with some Led Zepplin , which if you ask me is a pretty awesome choice.

Activision is trumpeting Destiny as “the most pre-ordered new video game IP” and according to them over 4 million people participated in the in the game’s beta this past July. Players take on the role of a Guardian on the last city on Earth. Adventures aren’t just limited to this planet of ours – the interactive world promises to span the stars with missions located on Mars!

Check out the live action trailer in the player below. Activision has provided Broken Joysticks with a PS3 copy of Destiny and we will be posting our full review in the coming weeks.

The next entry in the Mortal Kombat franchise has just been announced for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC. Set for release in 2015 this cross-generation entry in the long running fighting franchise has a lot to live up to after the huge success of 2011’s Mortal Kombat.

A brief two minute debut trailer was released alongside the announcement of the game. Rival ninjas Scorpion and Sub-Zero battle it out in this two minute all out brawl, which of course finishes off with a brutal decapitation. Some mechanics from the 2011 game return including the  brutal X-Ray attacks. In one of the absolute standout moments we see Sub-Zero use the environment to his advantage by swinging from a tree branch, delivering a swift kick to the face. Perhaps environments will play a larger role in Mortal Kombat X?

Check out the debut trailer after the jump, we’ll have more on the game as it become available. (more…)
