Black Ops III

Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be in the hands of eager fans in just a weeks’ time – November 6th and Activision has released a brand new trailer for the bonus Nuk3town map. This isn’t the first time that Nuketown has appeared – it dates back all the way to 2010’s original Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Here’s what Activision had to say about the Nuketown Map:

Set in 2065, this fan favorite map from Black Ops has returned in a big way. Nuk3town has been re-designed from the ground up to highlight Treyarch’s new momentum-based, chained-movement system, allowing players to battle in this adrenaline-charged multiplayer map. Players will experience a new take on this classic run-and-gun, close-quarters map. Escape a harsh reality and enjoy this virtual neighborhood of the future.

Check out the trailer below.

Final Fantasy XIV Patch 3.1 Release Date, Producer Q&A and Trailer

Posted on October 27, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Square Enix’s first huge update for Final Fantasy XIV: Heavansward, patch 3.1, arrives on November 10th the publisher has announced. Alongside the announcement of the release date Square also provided a Q & A during the most recent Letter From The Producer Live and a very informative 7 minute trailer giving players a rundown of everything that will be included in 3.1!

Patch 3.1 As Goes Light So Goes Darkness brings with it a lot of brand new content. The story threads left hanging after the completion of FFXIV: Heavansward will be continued in the new main story quests,  New exploratory missions for free-companies (guilds) will be available, the first of which is known as The Diadem.  One brand new dungeon will be added for level 60 players as well – Saint Mociane’s Arboretum.   Possibly one of the most exciting additions, which we detailed previously when it was unveiled is the new 24 man raid known as the Void Ark.

Make sure you check out the trailer I’ve included in the embedded player before the jump. I’ve also included some of the details from the official Q&A thread from the Letters From The Producer Live that I thought would be of interest for returning players. I know that I’ll be re-subbing for the new raid content, and hey new story quests are always welcomed 😀

If November 10th sounds familiar – it is also the same day that Fallout 4 and StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void are released. It’s going to be a big day for games!

Halo 5: Live Phaeton VTL Trailer

Posted on October 23, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Microsoft has released a very brief teaser trailer for their upcoming Halo 5: LIVE YouTube event. The Phaeton VTL trailer is done in the style of a smoothly edited car advertisement – with the announcer proclaiming that the Phaeton “flies and s**t”, honestly it’s pretty funny.

Halo 5: LIVE is a six hour long YouTube event leading up to the midnight general release of Halo 5: Guardians. Microsoft is promising a roundtable discussion between the writers of Halo 5 and actor Nathan Fillion (who voices Buck in Guardians and Halo 3: ODST). They’ll also be showing the world premiere of the Halo: The Fall of Reach animated series during the event. Fans from all around the world will also be getting involved – from locations such as New York City, London England and Sydney Australia.

Make sure to check out the Phaeton VTL trailer below and you can get the full Halo 5: LIVE schedule over on the Xbox Official Website.

Doom Closed Alpha Details, Recommended Specs & Trailer Revealed

Posted on October 22, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Fans looking for their next fix of id Software’s upcoming Doom reboot might not have to wait long provided that they purchased or pre-ordered Wolfenstein: The New Order last year.  Id Software and publisher Bethesda have announced a closed alpha set to take place tomorrow through the end of this weekend.

In terms of scope the closed alpha will be quite limited – featuring only one mode (6 vs 6 team deathmatch) and one map called Heatwave. Also don’t expect any extended live-streams or huge let’s plays of this newly announced alpha test as id Software has made it very clear that all testers are bound by an NDA.

Alongside the announcement id has laid out all of the weapons, equipment and the minimum specs (PC) required to run the alpha.  Players will be able to try out a few weapons we saw in action as early as this past E3 including the Super Shotgun and Rocket Launcher as well as the Static Cannon and Plasma Rifle.

If you’re like me and didn’t get into the alpha – at least there a brand new trailer featuring a few quick montages of new deathmatch footage. It seems like this build is very similar to the one that id showed off to the press a few months back at QuakeCon.

Call of Duty Black Ops III Shadows of Evil Prologue Trailer

Posted on October 12, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Black Ops III

What do a washed up magician, a private eye, a cabaret singer looking for her shot at the big time and an aging fighter have to do with each other? They’re the brand new protagonists in the latest Call of Duty Zombies experience – Shadows of Evil – shipping with the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Activision released the prologue trailer for this new mode and honestly it has a pretty neat 30s/40s Noir Vibe to the whole thing – I am really digging it. Let’s hope that each of these four characters get some growth over the various Zombies episodes because each of them seem to have a story to tell. Whether that story is about exposing corruption in the government, fighting for a second chance or rising to the top of the entertainment each character has their own unique ambitions.

Alongside the trailer Activision released the following summary of Shadows of Evil:

Shadows of Evil introduces four unwitting characters who must uncover the secrets and challenges laid out for them by a shadowy figure, who offers them a path to redemption. Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Neal McDonough, and Ron Perlman star in Shadows of Evil, a new survival co-op experience only available in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Unravel the secrets and explore a massive 1940s, film noir-inspired world in the deepest Zombies experience to date.

We’ll have more on Call of Duty: Black Ops II ahead of its release.

The Witcher III: Hearts of Stone Trailer Arrives

Posted on October 6, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Adventurers seeking more time with Geralt in The Witcher III are about to have their wish granted with the release of the game’s first expansion, Hearts of Stone, which launches on October 26th. This time around Geralt must recruit a crew of break-in artists, spend a night with some ghoulish creatures all in the name of his quest to defeat the seemingly immortal Olgierd Von Everec.

This trailer does a good job of explaining what is at stake in Hearts of Stone as well as explaining that perhaps Von Everec isn’t a cut-and-dry villain but perhaps more of a cursed man who has no chance of redemption?

Check out the trailer here.

The Witcher III: Hearts of Stone is Rated M so this this trailer is behind an age-gate.



The Hunt Begins In The Latest Live Action Halo 5 Trailer

Posted on October 5, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Microsoft and 343 Industries have released a brand new 90 second live-action trailer for the upcoming Xbox One exclusive Halo 5: Guardians. In this trailer a commanding voice (presumably a high ranking UNSC officer) explains to Spartan Locke that the officially Masterchief (Spartan 117) is official listed as Killed In Action but unofficially has stopped responding to orders and is now considered an enemy of the UNSC.

Core to the single player experience of Halo 5: Guardians is rivalry between Master Chief’s Blue Squad and Spartan Locke’s Team of Fireteam Osiris. The theme of team rivalry carries over into the multiplayer side of things with the inclusion of Warzone a brand new team competitive mode that tasks two teams to destroy the “core” of the other team’s base. Standing in their way are waves of enemy AIs and large bosses. The whole thing sounds like a cross between the popular MOBA formula and horde mode and I can’t wait to try it!

Has John-117 gone rogue?

Halo 5: Guardians will be released on October 27th in North America.
