A few weeks ago, Activision and Infinity Ward revealed the newest Call of Duty multiplayer mode, titled Gunfight. This 2v2 close-quarters mode pits two teams against each other in a quick series of rounds. I myself tried the mode a few months ago and it is probably the most fun I have had in Call of Duty multiplayer during that short play session.

But it's hard to explain just what the mode is like with a description, so Infinity Ward has posted a video today showing more. The fighting game-like pacing and back-and-forth feels fairly unique to shooters in general. You can check five minutes of the Gunfight mode out above.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 25.

Avengers Releasing Polished Demo Footage Just After Gamescom

Avengers Releasing Polished Demo Footage Just After Gamescom

A lot has been made about Square Enix's showing of Avengers at E3 this year. The initial press conference reveal wasn't, really, as it had little gameplay and confusing messaging. The behind-closed-doors demo on the show floor failed to impress many and leaked footage shot on a cellphone did it no favors. Now Square Enix and Marvel say they're polishing up the gameplay demo to reveal it online just after Gamescom.

The news comes from the Marvel Games panel at San Diego Comic-Con, as well as made official by a tweet from the game's official account.

According to attendees, the gameplay demo is similar to the E3 floor showing, but more polished and expanded. In the SDCC video, a girl wearing a Captain Marvel shirt inhales Terrigen mists, likely confirming Ms. Marvel. That also likely confirms leaks from a few months ago that put Ms. Marvel at the center of the beginning of the story.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Confirms Loki, Cylcops, Colossus, And Details First DLC Wave

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, Nintendo's try at this whole "Marvel games" thing is hours away at this point, but there's still some questions left to be answered. At E3 this year, Nintendo confirmed that the game would be getting an expansion featuring characters from the X-Men and other series, but didn't detail which. At the Marvel Games panel at San Diego Comic-Con, we finally got information about the first wave, as well as some upcoming characters that aren't part of the paid expansion pass.

To begin with, everyone's favorite trickster god Loki will be available on day one. On August 30, the team will be joined by Cyclops and Colossus from the X-Men as free DLC, available for anyone and everyone. 

As mentioned before, there are three character packs in the expansion pass. While X-Men is one, it won't be the first one, and they're holding who is in that pack close to their chest. Another is Fantastic Four and it's probably not exceptionally hard to guess which characters are in that one. Marvel Knights, the third pack, includes Punisher, Blade, Moon Knight, and Morbius with an exceptionally deep-V t-shirt.

New FIFA 20 Trailer Showcases Gameplay Improvements

New FIFA 20 Trailer Showcases Gameplay Improvements

FIFA 20's new showcase feature is its small-side Volta mode, but developer EA Vancouver assures fans that it is also working on gameplay aspects for the latest installment of the series. Today's new trailer showcases some of what we can expect on this front.

While none of the features in the trailer above are new in the sense that they've never been included in some form or another in previous iterations, if done right these gameplay aspects of FIFA 20 could improve the experience from last year.

For example, A.I. defending in online games was seen as too strong in some situations last year, so improving the defensive A.I. in general for this year could fix that problem. Similarly, updated ball physics could positively impact everything from a player's first touch to shot outcomes.

Four Things To Keep An Eye On

Four Things To Keep An Eye On

The world ended in the 1960s. This can be a hard truth to accept, but that is the way things are in Remnant: From the Ashes. An evil race of tree creatures called the Root wiped out all civilization as we know it, leaving only small groups of survivors behind. A harsh and unforgiving series of worlds awaits the stranger who tries to right these wrongs and find the source of the apocalypse. Them and two of their friends, at least. I recently got some hands-on time with Remnant, both its single-player and its cooperative multiplayer. Here are some of the major takeaways from that experience. 

Remnant: From the Ashes aims to make water-cooler conversations fun again. During our curated single-player experience, we were given a look at the kind of unique encounters awaiting each individual player. There are four worlds available for players to travel to, each with a handful of overworlds and their own bosses. However, each player’s world is procedurally generated for them when they start the game, crafting each world individually for that person. The exploration, item placements, and enemies will differ across every copy of the game.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Gets A Hybrid Battle Royale Mode As Its Final Update

Ghost Recon Wildlands Gets A Hybrid Battle Royale Mode As Its Final Update

While Ubisoft has already announced the newest Ghost Recon game scheduled to come out later this year, they're still not done adding new things for 2017's Wildlands. Well, now they're done, as this is final update, but it's still surprisingly close to the next game to get an entire new mode for the game. Ubisoft is still poking and prodding the successful Ghost Recon title, though, this time with a new mode called Mercenaries. 

You can check out the trailer below.

The new mode is kind of pseudo-battle royale mode limited to eight players. All the players spawn and are tasked with gathering equipment, finding an extraction point, and eventually extracting themselves, all the while fighting against other players and enemies.
