Shelob Returns In Latest Trailer

At this year's San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. showed off a new trailer for Middle-Earth: Shadow of War. The trailer highlights a number of the game's story beats, and introduces us to new (and old) character: Shelob.

Originally a villainous spider in Lord of the Rings, Shelob retains her eight spindly legs in Shadow of War, but can also shapeshift into a human, making her a bit more empathetic and expressive this time around. You can watch the full trailer introducing her new incarnation below.

San Diego Comic-Con 2017 Trailer Gives Extended Look At Combat

See What's New For Madden 18's Gameplay

A new Madden trailer has come out focusing on an important foundation of the August 25 football title – the gameplay. Specifically, some of the new elements for this year.

One of the major optional gameplay mechanics is increased QB control through target passing: the ability to throw to a space versus just always targeting at a receiver's numbers or choosing a high/low pass. 

At the :15 second mark of the trailer (below) you can see an orange on-the-field icon that indicates where you want to throw the ball. In this case, it's ahead of the receiver. This is separate from choosing a catch button as a receiver to try and run after the catch, for example.

Supergiant's Party-Based RPG Gets Intense New Trailer

Supergiant Games, the developer behind Bastion and Transistor, has released a new launch trailer detailing the exiles, Rites, and more, in the mystical purgatory called the Downside.

In Pyre, you are responsible for leading a group of exiles across the Downside, taking on other exiles in an ancient competition called the Rites (that looks a lot like a game of NBA Jam) as you fight to extinguish your enemies' pyre while defending your own. A single orb is the primary tool of destruction in the Rites, and opposing players must take control of the orb and launch it at the opposing team's pyre to cause damage. Each character possesses different innate abilities with unique benefits for combat and traversing the arena, although a general skill tree is also available for leveling up.

The game offers a two-player local multiplayer mode as well as a single-player mode which, upon defeat, adapts the story instead of giving a Game Over.

Latest Yakuza Kiwami Trailer Shows You How To Bring A Motorcycle To A Fistfight

The latest trailer for Yakuza Kiwami shows off the both the mundane of Yakuza, like playing crane games and singing karaoke, and the absurd, like punching someone with a motorcycle.

Yakuza Kiwami is a remake of the original Yakuza game that found a lot of success on Japan in 2005, but didn't find a huge audience in North America when it released for PlayStation 2 in 2006. Kiwami represents another chance for the series' origins to find its audience, which should be a lot easier this time around thanks to the new fandom generated from Yakuza 0 earlier this year,

Hack Into The Horror Of A New Trailer For Cyberpunk Title Observer

The future is indeed a scary place. Observer, which takes place in the definite dystopia of Poland 2084, puts you in the shoes of detective Dan Lazarski as he hacks into suspects' minds and invades their fears.

The game's new story trailer sheds a little more light on the game's context as well as Lazarski – played by Rutger Hauer from the original Blade Runner, among other films.

Our own Javy had a 10-minute demo of the title and thought highly of it enough to include it in our list of the best indie games from this year's GDC.
