Darksiders Creator Offers Substantial Tease For Upcoming Game Announcement

An e-mail went out recently to those who signed up for Airship Syndicate's newsletter with a larger version of a previously shown image – and it strongly suggests Battle Chasers.

The original image, which you can see here, was recently tweeted out by Darksiders creator Joe Madureira and showed only the sword. The new image, seen above, is larger, full resolution, and and shows a silhouetted figure in the bottom right corner.

Many are speculating that that person is Garrison, a character from Madureira's never-completed comic book series, Battle Chasers. Madureira abandoned the comic series in 2001 after nine issues to pursue a career in video game design.

about X hours ago from

The planned reboot of the Tomb Raider film series has its first major development in years. The film, which has previously been discussed as a telling of the Lara Croft origin story, now has a distributor and a writer.

Evan Daugherty, who worked on films such as Snow White and the Huntsman, Divergent, and 2014's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, has signed on to write the upcoming reboot. In addition, Warner Bros. is now set to distribute the film, while GK Films and MGM are partnering to co-finance and co-produce. Previously, Lara Croft was portrayed by Angelina Jolie in 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and 2003's Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life. No actress has been announced to portray the younger Lara Croft for the upcoming film.

The Tomb Raider game series was rebooted in 2013 by Crystal Dynamics. Tomb Raider, which has been met with critical acclaim, told the tale of how Lara Croft became the hardened adventurer she was portrayed as in other entries in the series. Rise of the Tomb Raider, the follow-up to that reboot, hits this year and is our current cover story. To learn more about Rise of the Tomb Raider, check out our hub by clicking the image below.

Reader Discussion: Have You Used Share Play On The PS4?

Over the past week, we've been covering a story about a Share Play incident gone horribly wrong. While playing Destiny, 11-year-old Henry turned on the feature and handed control of his console to a stranger.

What followed was painful to watch, as Henry's characters and exotic weapons were deleted. We posted that video as a cautionary tale about the feature, but it has since spiraled into one about harassment and hate mobs.

Bringing this back to its roots though, we are curious if you've used the Share Play feature? If so, how many times have you done it, and for what purposes? Let us know how your experiences have been (if you've had them) in the comments.
