World War II Multiplayer FPS Hell Let Loose Announced

Team 17, the indie publisher behind games like Overcooked and Yooka-Laylee, has revealed a new multiplayer first-person shooter set in the well-tilled grounds of World War II. Hell Let Loose intends to differ itself, however, by being a 50 vs. 50 multiplayer game with an emphasis on capturing territory.

You can check out the reveal trailer for the game below.

"Featuring sweeping maps modeled on real reconnaissance images and satellite data, the entire battlefield is divided up into large capture sectors - allowing for emergent and constantly unique gameplay that pits two forces of fifty players in a fight to the death across fields, bridges, forests and towns on an ever-evolving front line," Team 17 writes on the game's store page. "When a sector is captured, it will generate one of three resources for your team, creating a complex meta-game that will influence your team’s march to victory."

Obsidian Teasing New Sci-Fi Game With Countdown

At XO18 earlier this month, Microsoft announced that they intend to acquire Obsidian Entertainment, the RPG studio behind games like Pillars of Eternity, Fallout: New Vegas, Alpha Protocol. Now, not even a month out from that announcement, Obsidian looks ready to announce their next new game and is giving hints of what it might be.

Geoff Keighley, host of The Game Awards, has already confirmed that the next game will be premiering at the awards show. 

Don't miss the global premiere and announcement of the upcoming RPG by @Obsidian and @PrivateDivision at @TheGameAwards streaming live everywhere next Thursday, December 6 at 9 PM ET / 6 PM PT. #WorldsWillChange pic.twitter.com/LjW8GmdwcB

Bethesda Responds To Complaints About Fallout 76's Special Edition Merchandise

Bethesda Responds To Complaints About Fallout 76's Special Edition Merchandise

The Fallout 76 special edition, known officially as the Power Armor edition, was announced during Bethesda's E3 conference earlier this year. Todd Howard introduced the collectibles by showcasing a CG trailer of someone putting on a power armor helmet, then including an image of the special edition's contents. That picture, which has been and is still being used in marketing materials, is part of what's causing a new round of frustration with fans.

In the advertisement, the image shows a heavy duty canvas bag for carrying your brand new Power Armor helmet around. The actual product released is a nylon bag, which is a lot less durable and made of significantly cheaper materials.

It's no shock that items in a special edition's advertising are different than how they come out once they're mass produced, as anyone that has ever bought one with a statue included will certainly tell you. Materials being entirely different, especially when specifically outlined in the advertisement, is a different ballgame altogether, however.

Netflix Creating Live-Action Cowboy Bebop Series

Fans of Shinichiro Watanabe's 1998 classic animated series Cowboy Bebop remember the show for its specific character writing, jazzy soundtrack, and unemulatable style. Now, Netflix is hoping to capture some of Watanabe's vision with a live-action series announced via their Twitter.

While details are scant, Variety reports that the series has been in the works for about a year and will have an initial run for ten episodes. Netflix themselves later tweeted, perhaps to calm the reaction to the initial announcement, that director Shinichiro Watanabe is a consultant on the series.

Get Must-Have Indies Alongside Headliners Soma And Onrush In December’s PS Plus Free Games

Get Must-Have Indies Alongside Headliners Soma And Onrush In December’s PS Plus Free Games

December’s free PlayStation Plus games will get your heart pounding in two very different ways. Soma, Frictional Games’ sci-fi survival horror, received a 8.5 from us back when it released in 2015. Tim Turi wrote that, “All the core genre tenets are still in place, wrapped in a tense, underwater setting that tells one of the most intriguing sci-fi stories in recent memory.”

While Onrush’s bright and colorful vibe is about as far from horror as you can get, the arcade-style racer will make your heart beat equally fast. You can watch Jeff Cork, Matt Kato, and Leo Vader in friendly car-smashing competition on this episode of New Gameplay Today.

PlayStation Plus members can pick up these two headliners as well as the critically acclaimed indies Iconoclasts – which Kyle HIlliad gave a 9 ­– and Papers, Please – developed by Lucas Pope, creator of recently released Return of the Obra Dinn.
