Hotline Miami Comes To Fall Guys

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has sparked a battle royale party over the last few days, and now you can dress your bean up as Jacket from Hotline Miami. That's an interesting choice to add to the game about playfully running up obstacle laden hills and splashing through endless rivers of slime, but it kinda makes sense.

I mean, you can be a pineapple if you want. Or a pigeon. Or just a bunch of chocolate mint wavy lines. It's all about looking good while you get the big wins and epic defeats!

Look who just appeared in the in-game store!
You can trade in your hard-earned dubs for JACKET!

Bethesda Announces Free Next-Gen Upgrades For Doom Eternal And The Elder Scrolls Online

Bethesda has announced that Doom Eternal and The Elder Scrolls Online are coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Not just that, but those who purchase or own the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One versions can upgrade to the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X version at no additional cost. 

While the next-gen versions haven't yet been detailed, Bethesda is promising a list of enhancements and a release window over the coming weeks and months. The publisher has also announced it is committed to offering free upgrades of any additional current-generation games it releases on next-gen consoles. 

Doom Eternal released earlier this year, while The Elder Scrolls Online initially launched on consoles in 2015. Bethesda also said the teams are working on making both titles support backward compatibility when the new consoles launch, meaning there hopefully won't be any lapse in play if the newly announced versions do not launch alongside PS5 and Xbox Series X.

Deep Dive Into Godfall Closes Out Sony’s State Of Play

Godfall was given a significant time chunk at the end of Sony’s presentation today, showing off more detail for the looter/slasher. The developer used the gameplay demo to illustrate the focus on combat and loot progression, but also discussed the availability of solo and cooperative play for up to three players.

The combat philosophy for Godfall revolves around offensive movement, encouraging players to constantly move their knight around the battlefield to confront a variety of foes. Each of five different weapon classes each has its own movesets, including the longsword, dual blades, polearm, two-handed warhammer, and the two-handed great sword.

The demo offered a closer look at two of those weapon styles.The dual blades are especially fast, and are good for soft and unarmored enemies. Inner focus is unique to dual blades, allowing for increased damage for a time, and mortal coil, which pulls enemies to you. Longswords are simple weapons without a big focus on combos. Clearly meant as an accessible weapon for all players, this weapon style includes a spiral technique, for a line attack, as well as a shield uppercut with good timing. The demo also focused on the flexibility of the shield, which players always have access to, which allows for everything from parries to shield throws.

Vader Immortal Hits PSVR On August 25

Vader Immortal debuted last year on Oculus systems, giving players a chance to come face-to-face with the iconic Star Wars villain in VR. Back in May, we learned the game is also coming to PSVR. During today's State of Play event, Sony confirmed that the title will be launching on August 25.

So, should you pick it up? The first episode is interesting, and has some recognizable voice talent (including actress Maya Rudolph) ... but the subsequent installments didn't quite keep up the momentum. Even so, if you're a Star Wars fan and you want to stand in the awesome presence of Darth Vader, the game's move to PSVR is a new opportunity to do just that.

Giant Squid Goes Hunting In New Look At the Pathless

Today’s State of Play from Sony gave us a new look at The Pathless. Developed by Giant Squid, the makers of Abzu, The Pathless is an open world mythic action/adventure game.

Players take on the role of The Hunter, a master archer who must shoot talismans to boost a meter that lets her moving quickly across the island landscape of the game. Working together with an eagle companion is key to the game’s core loop. Players gain altitude by flapping while holding onto the eagle, and pet the eagle to keep it clean and help it fly well.

As players explore, they’ll find secrets, like shooting braziers that offer upgrades to the eagle’s flight. But the major focus is hunting down cursed spirits. There’s no map, but instead, players will look through a special mask to reveal where they’ve been, and where they still need to go.

Hood: Outlaws And Legends Coming To PS4, PS5 In 2021

During Sony's State of Play event, Focus Home Interactive premiered a trailer for Hood: Outlaws and Legends, showing Sumo Digital's grittier take on the classic Robin Hood tales.

The clip doesn't focusing on people getting knocked off logs and into rivers; instead, this shadowy gang of outlaws seems to prefer brutal melee attacks and firing arrows through enemy necks. 

Look for Hood: Outlaws and Legends on PlayStation 4 and 5 in 2021.

In 2010, Remedy released Alan Wake, an action game about a struggling writer who fights off monsters cloaked in darkness by shining light on them.

We don't know a lot about this DLC at the moment, but we got a short glimpse of Alan Wake, complete with a brief narration. AWE releases on August 27. Remember to stay in the light.
