Test Chamber – Trials Of The Blood Dragon

about X hours ago from

In one of the more absurd and amusing moments of Ubisoft’s Monday E3 press conference, the team leads for the original Blood Dragon and the Trials games joined forces on stage in a show of bravado and humor, all in the name of announcing their joint new game – Trials of the Blood Dragon. Gamers didn’t have long to wait before getting an opportunity to check out the insanity; the game became available for purchase immediately following the event.

Kyle Hilliard and I sat down to check out some of the early missions of the new game, and even after driving through a few missions, it’s clear that the project is something different and surprising. The core gameplay of the Trials franchise is in place, but expanded with new vehicles and styles of play. Meanwhile, the infusion of Blood Dragon storytelling and humor lends a deeper narrative hook, along with a heaping spoonful of 80s nostalgia. 

Check out Trials of the Blood Dragon in the video below. Ubisoft’s latest mash-up is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC for $14.99.

One of the ways Infinity Ward is switching up their approach to Call of Duty is to elevate the player to the roll of a captain. This time you'll be commanding thousands of military personnel aboard the equivalent of an inter-planetary aircraft carrier known as the UNSA Retribution.

We sat down with the development team behind Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare to learn more about how being the commander of such a massive spaceship changes the gameplay.

E3 Rivals – Days Gone Vs. Dead Rising 4

We all knew zombies were popular, but their prominence during E3 2016 still took us a bit off guard. Both Microsoft and Sony showed off new zombie-centric games at their press conferences at this year's show, so we wanted to discuss both of them and see how they compare. Game Informer's Jeff Cork is a Dead Rising super-fan and he was able to play the fourth entry, while Jeff Marchiafava took the more adventurous path and has some thoughts on Sony Bend's Days Gone. Also, could there be a curveball thrown into this competition?

Watch the video below to see how Sony and Microsoft's big zombie games stack up.
