New FFXIV: Heavensward BenchmarkTrailer Gets Us Excited

Square Enix has released the full trailer for the Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward benchmark which will be released to the community this coming Monday. It’s our first look at a lot of the new abilities available to existing classes, possibly some of the upcoming raid content among other hints of things to come. Needless to say FFXIV players will be picking this benchmark apart until the full expansion drops this coming June.

For the uninitiated FFXIV: Heavensward expands on the original Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn with entirely new zones set in the northern snowy planes of Coerthas, raising the maximum level cap to 60, introducing three new jobs (Machinist, Astrologain, Dark Knight) and the promise of new 4 player / 8 player dungeons and of course 24 player raids.

Get your PCs ready because it looks like FFXIV: Heavensward might take a bit of additional horse power.

Black Ops III “Embers” Teaser Asks How Far Can Technology Take Us?

With only 3 days left until the official reveal of Call of Duty: Black Ops III Activision Publishing Inc has released a brand new three minute trailer for their upcoming title. Beginning with a montage of technological achievements from the last fifty years such as the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2000 and the rise of wearable computers this decade the trailer, titled “embers”, quickly heads down a very speculative path.

What would happen if organ replacements became an option for only the rich and famous? How would athletics handle the introduction of augmented humans into competitions? What would happen if the military were using augmentation technologies to build the perfect super soldier?

Honestly this trailer gives me some hope that Treyarch are ready to explore some of the societal questions they’ve raised in their pre-reveal campaign. In all honesty this three minute trailer raises questions about technological advancement a lot better than Square-Enix did with their three day long #CantStopProgress marketing event a few weeks ago for the new Deus Ex. It was also kind of amusing that Activision decided to use an Edward Snowden lookalike in their latest trailer as well.

The world reveal for Call of Duty: Black Ops III  is scheduled for this coming Sunday, April 26th!

Star Wars Battlefront In-Engine Trailer & Details Revealed

Over the weekend Electronic Arts revealed the first in-engine trailer for their upcoming reboot of the Star Wars: Battlefront series during the annual Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim California. If you were expecting a gameplay trailer you might be a little disappointed as the trailer released by EA is full of up-close shots of in-engine assets and cinematic cuts. There is no doubt that the trailer is absolutely gorgeous and action packed but the looming question is of course ‘does it represent the final game?’ with no gameplay footage available that is a question we don’t have the answer to right now.

Black Ops III Full Reveal Coming April 26th

Activision sent out a cryptic press release this morning that simply linking to a YouTube video with the hashtag #BackInBlack. Anyone who is familiar with the Call of Duty franchise will recognize the stylized “III” up in the header of this article as being very similar to the font used to promote Call of Duty: Black Ops II. We’ll find out what the pair of companies has planned when the game’s world reveal takes center stage on April 26!

It is important to note that Activision also partnered with popular Advanced Warfare YouTuber TmarTn for this reveal. Perhaps we will get more small glimpses of the game on his channel before the big reveal.

Earlier in the year there were a number of rumors that the next Call of Duty game would take place during World War 2. Perhaps Black Ops III will have us hoping between the near future and the battles of the Second World War?

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Announced For Current Gen / PC

Square Enix took the wraps off of the latest entry in the Deus Ex franchise this morning with the announcement of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.  Human Revolution’s protagonist Adam Jensen returns in this latest cyberpunk action RPG set in the not-so distant future of 2029 – where the humankind is further divided between those who have cybernetic enhancements and those who do not.

This reveal was widely expected after Square’s #CantStopProgress marketing campaign kicked into gear three days ago with a mysterious twitch stream featuring individuals in solitary confinement. To be brutally honest I did not see the appeal in watching a fictionalized account of solitary confinement and torture to promote a videogame. Yet thousands of people did tuned into the twitch stream over the preceding 72 hrs… let’s remember that isolation in the prison system is a very real issue and to take the idea and use it for the promotion of a video game is beyond fucked up in my opinion.
