Get Another Look At Q Games' Co-Op Sandbox, The Tomorrow Children

It's been a while since we last heard from Q Games about its title The Tomorrow Children. The game has players pool their efforts to rebuild a city in an alternate version of '60s-era Russia following a weird disaster. A new trailer shows off the PS4 game and also features studio founder Dylan Cuthbert sharing his love for Japan.

Cooperation is critical in the game, and players are grouped together to rebuild a new city. Q Games wants players to feel as though they're part of a community, and that their actions are contributing to larger goals. Take a look at the clip below to learn more.

Final Fantasy XV's Path Narrows About Halfway Through

Final Fantasy XV's Path Narrows About Halfway Through

Players who were looking forward to a completely open-world experience in the upcoming Final Fantasy XV should recalibrate their expectations. In an interview with Famitsu, the game's director says that the open-world structure is present for about half of the game, but that it becomes more focused and linear as it goes.

Director Hajimi Tabata told Famitsu – in an interview that was translated by Siliconera – that the game was structured that way so that players wouldn't get bored "as the rest of the game tightens." He went on to say that players who focus on the critical path can expect to spend between 40-50 hours with the game.

Tabata was hesitant to characterize the game as being open world when we spoke to him during our earlier cover story. “From the start of development, we set out to not make something that was free-roaming, open-world," he told us. 

Dontnod Releases 15-Minute Vampyr Walkthrough Video

Dontnod Releases 15-Minute Vampyr Walkthrough Video

Dontnod's upcoming game Vampyr transports players to London during a 1918 outbreak of the Spanish flu. To further complicate the situation, your character, Dr. Jonathan Reid, has to wrestle with the infection and its effects on the city as a whole while also coming to terms with something far more personal. He's a newly converted vampire, and how he balances his duties as a surgeon and his newfound blood lust is largely up to the player. The studio has released a 15-minute walkthrough of the game's early moments, which show off a bit of the game's combat, exploration, and overall gameplay flow.

The demo is quite similar to what was shown at E3 and Gamescom, but it's still a great slice of gameplay. Keep in mind that the footage is pre-alpha, so what you see may not be completely representative of the final game when it comes out next year. Still, you'll be able to see how Reid uses his powers of perception to search for potential victims and stays alive while being hunted by people who are doing their best to eliminate the vampiric scourge. Spoiler: Their best isn't quite good enough.

Gamescom Demo Shows Off Spell Creation And Combat

In Tyranny, the world has turned upside down. Evil has conquered good, and you're one of the baddies. During Gamescom, we got a better look at one of Tyranny's dungeons, and its spell creation system.

Tyranny is an isometric RPG from Obsidian, similar to the likes of Baldur's Gate and Pillars of Eternity. Set in a magical land following a devastating war, you play as an officer to the evil overlord Kyros. While evil reigns in Tyranny, certain story choices you make affect the world around you. You can either continue to be merciless, or try to make this land a better place.

In the demo, we chase after another character, leading us into a dungeon beyond the Old Walls, which are large structures believed to have been built by an ancient civilization.

 Join Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, And Felicia Day In Con Man: The Game Out Today

Stars like Nathan Fillion, Joss Whedon, Alan Tudyk, and Felicia Day are uniting once again, but this time in a mobile video game.

Con Man: The Game is based off the Comic Con-HQ show featuring Alan Tudyk as Wray Nerely, a man who starred in the beloved sci-fi show that ended too soon (an obvious spoof off Firefly), and now he tours the con circuit. Tudyk and Fillion ran a successful crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to create the series, asking for $425,000. The campaign ended up receiving $3 million, making it the highest crowdfunded web show to date. Con Man: The Game became a reality when the campaign reached the $3 million tier. Now the game is free-to-play on iOS and Google Play.

In the simulation game, you run your own con, building booths and hiring celebs to help you out, such as Joss Whedon as the janitor and Kevin Smith as security. Oh, and there's alien invasions happening every so often.
