Swamp Thing Makes A Splash With New Injustice 2 Trailer

NetherRealm Studios dropped a trailer today via IGN announcing Swamp Thing as a playable character in Injustice 2. The fan-favorite character was one of the most requested fighters for the Injustice sequel, and by the looks of the trailer, players should be pleased.

Displaying a new background stage, the trailer spotlights Swamp Thing facing off with Damian Wayne's Robin, utilizing a variety of far-reaching attacks and heavy hits. Some of his special moves include various grab attacks, a dodge which sees him phasing through the ground, and a low projectile where he launches a log at his opponent. It's hard to put a category on his fighting style based solely on the footage, but the waterlogged warrior looks to be shaping up as a formidable fighter in NetherRealm's roster. You can watch the whole trailer below.

Technomancer and Bound By Flame Developer Announces New Title

Developer Spiders made their mark with cult titles like Mars: War Logs, its sequel, The Technomancer, and the Witcher-esque Bound By Flame. Their next title is GreedFall, an RPG with an old-timey colonial aesthetic and mysterious fantasy elements.

The teaser trailer gives us a brief look at a man hunting a non-human woman with a musket and flintlock pistol before being attacked by some sort of wild, or perhaps summoned, beast. The striking art style is a result of the team's inspiration: the Baroque art of 17th century Europe.

FTL: Faster Than Light Studio Announces New Game

Subset Games burst onto the scene with FTL: Faster Than Light, the roguelike space simulator which fulfilled our dreams of being captain of an advanced starship. After knocking it out of the park with FTL, Subset is back with a new title in a whole new genre.

Into The Breach is a turn-based tactics game, calling to mind the likes of genre classics Final Fantasy Tactics and Front Mission. It's mechs vs subterranean monsters in a battle for control of planet Earth. The narrative features a unique time travel twist, where failure has the player traveling back in time and trying again in an alternate timeline. We're not yet sure what effect this mechanic will have on gameplay, but we're confident that Subset has some clever tricks up its sleeve.

Assassin's Creed And Darksiders II Composer Jesper Kyd To Create Music

Battle Chasers: Nightwar, the video game continuation of Joe Madureira's incomplete comic book series of the same name, has a composer.

Jesper Kyd, a BAFTA winning musician, has scored an impressive number of games across many series including Assassin's Creed, Hitman, Darksiders, Borderlands, and a ton more. Today, developer Airship Syndicate is announcing that Kyd will be making music for the upcoming Battle Chasers: Nightwar. Darksiders II, which Kyd composed, also comes from the mind of Madureira, so the two have collaborated before.

In the press release announcing Kyd's involvement with the game he said, “One of the reasons why I think Joe's art and my music work so well together is the depth of atmosphere Joe brings to his work. Creating a rich atmosphere is a quality that I very much aspire to as well. Mood and depth are a key part of my music and I love that about Joe’s art.”
