The Brutality Of Corvo

The Brutality Of Corvo

A few months ago, Game Informer's June cover story took a deep (and violent) dive into Dishonored 2, a stealth-action game that allows players to reunite with Corvo Attano, the star of the first Dishonored, or play for the first time as Emily Kaldwin, who was only 10 in the first game, but is now 25. We detailed the differences between Corvo and Emily's powers, and the ways players can use them slip into the shadows undetected or bring death on their enemies. At this year's QuakeCon expo, Pete Hines, Bethesda's VP of PR and marketing, gave people in attendance an exclusive look at a clearly agitated Corvo in action. The demo was supposed to be narrated by Arkane Studios' Harvey Smith, who serves as the game's co-director, but Hines jokingly made fun of Smith, saying he forgot to set his alarm correctly and missed his flight.

Putting The Alien Back In Science Fiction

Putting The Alien Back In Science Fiction

When Arkhane Studios debuted Prey at Bethesda Softworks' E3 press conference earlier this year, few details were given, but the brief footage that was shown was enough to make us sympathize with a character named Morgan Yu. the trailer hammered home the repetition in his life by showing his daily routine numerous times. The one thing that changes day to day is his health. On each subsequent visit to the bathroom, Yu's eye is redder. The last time we see him, it's blood red, and we can see the concern on his face. We then see that he's the subject of some kind of experiment, trapped within a sprawling white chamber. Three silhouetted men view Yu from the window, welcoming him back again. This tease mostly told us that Arkane Studios was doing something dramatically different with the Prey franchise, but we didn't really know what – outside of the brief glimpse of Yu blasting aliens that appeared to be made of smoke and goo.

New Video Explores The Historically Inspired Weapons Players Will Utilize

EA has released a video showcasing the some of the weapons available in Battlefield 1 as part of a new gameplay video series leading up to the game's October launch.  

In the video, we get a look at not only some of the weapons in action, but how the developers researched their use during WWI before implementing them in Battlefield 1. However, DICE is not going for complete historical accuracy. Vehicle and weapon animator Christofer Brandtieng states,  "We're not recreating the old, the past. We're taking that as an inspiration and then we're trying to take this into a modern perspective."

Codemasters' F1 2016 is rebuilding its feature set after years of neglect, and today the developer has announced a new multiplayer mode that raises the stakes.

The game's Multiplayer Championship mode not only allows you to race with others, but has its own season framework that pits racing teams – as well as teammates – against each other. The 22-player Championship can also be used for league play, but all the details of this structure are not spelled out yet. It's also unknown at this time if the Multiplayer Championship allows for local play.
