Anthem's Villain Revealed In New Story-Focused Trailer

BioWare has shown Anthem numerous times over the last year, but hasn't talked much about the story or the possibility of a villain. A new trailer that debuted at the Game Awards finally gave us a little of both of these things, including a look at a character named the Monitor, who will be a recurring threat, both to you and the world.

The Monitor is one of the leaders of a faction of humans called The Dominion. They are aggressive, militaristic, and want to bring peace through force. They have their own javelins, and believe that Fort Tarsis needs to adopt their philosophies. This of course will likely lead to war. You'll need to protect Fort Tarsis from The Dominion, and are also tasked to stop The Monitor from using the Anthem of Creation. He believes he's found a way to wield its Force-like powers to bring a new age to the world.

The trailer also gives us a look at a character named Fey, who is one of the few people in Fort Tarsis that is a cipher, someone who is trained to use the Anthem to broadcast her voice over great distances. She's essentially the eyes of the Freelancers. She sits in an amplifier to boost her powers.

Dauntless Coming To Consoles In Early 2019

Phoenix Labs' Monster Hunter-inspired action game, Dauntless, is coming to the Epic Games Store and consoles. If you missed out on what Game Informer's Dan Tack called a "fantastical ride" in his review back when the game released for PC in 2018, this might be your chance to check it out. 

The console announcement trailer highlights the game's co-op nature and it's fun stylized graphics. Watch as a disparate band engages in an epic battle against a lightning-breathing dragon and a deadly looking lava-encrusted dinosaur creature. 

Phoenix Labs has also shared the first details on a series of new features and updates arriving to the game including:

Watch The First Trailer For 'Survival Shooter Co-opetition' Game Scavengers

Earlier this year we got to visit Midwinter Entertainment to learn about Scavengers, a game they're calling a "Survival Shooter Co-opetition." It's an interesting premise, as players scavenge (sorry) for resources and fight off AI-controlled monsters in one-off matches as they gather the strength necessary to face each other in combat and, eventually, escape with some loot.

Tonight at The Game Awards, the world got its first look at the game through a CGI trailer, which you can find below. Additionally, Midwinter announced they're taking sign-ups for the beta, which will begin some time in 2019.

Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order Comes Elusively To Switch

Team Ninja is making your dreams come true with Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. We're huge fans of the first two Alliance games, which blended Diablo-style action with Marvel's iconic characters, but we haven't seen a sequel in ten years. The third one looks equally amazing, and looks to have characters themed off the Marvel cinematic universe teaming up to defeat Thanos. Team Ninja is bringing it to Switch in 2019.

Journey To The Savage Planet From Far Cry 4 Director Revealed

Publisher 505 Games and Typhoon Studios have just revealed the developer's first game, Journey to the Savage Planet. The color new title is the first game from Alex Hutchison, director of games like Far Cry 4 and Assassin's Creed III, and is being described as a passion project for the entire team.

Players take the role of an employee of Kindred Aerospace, a mediocre interstellar exploration company, that gets dropped onto an uncharted planet tucked away in the far reaches of the universe. With no real preparation or equipment to speak of, the player determines whether the planet is fit for human life by figuring out what's already there in terms of flora and fauna.

“The core tenets of Typhoon are strong flavors, lots of intertwined systems, a penchant for bad jokes and a deep and abiding love of collaborative play,” says Hutchinson. “Journey to the Savage Planet will encompass all of those things and more.”
