Watch 27 Minutes Of Gameplay For Nier: Automata

Nier: Automata developer Platinum Games has more than a penchant for fluid action, which is evident in abundance in this nearly half-an-hour of uninterrupted gameplay footage from the upcoming title.

Apart from watching protagonist 2B systematically dismember and cut enemies, you can also get a look at other aspects of the game such as 2B's chip mods, riding wildlife (for travel or combat), the Reliquary system, the fishing minigame, and much more.

Nier: Automata comes out for PS4 on March 7, and later in 2017 on PC via Steam.

When '80s Cartoons Meet Turn-based Combat

Much like the set-up for a Saturday morning cartoon, the premise of Battle Breakers wastes no time getting to the fun. The kingdom has been invaded by monsters from space, leaving players to command teams of ninjas, dinosaurs, and mages against the enemy forces. With hundreds of heroes to recruit, powerful techniques to master, and a colorful sci-fi fantasy aesthetic, the newly-announced tactical RPG from Epic Games brims with energy, as can be seen in the trailer below.

Battle Breakers will launch for iOS, Android, and PC and will also feature cross-platform play. Set to release later this year, players can pre-register at the game's website to receive an exclusive hero, The Dark Beastman, to add to their roster.

The First Trailer & Details For Middle-earth: Shadow Of War

Following this weekend's retail leak, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer Monolith Productions have officially announced Middle-earth: Shadow of War with the game's first trailer and details.

The game, which takes place directly after the first title, expands the Nemesis System to encompass the environment and other characters by includng followers and Nemesis Fortresses. Followers sow their own stories of "loyalty, betrayal, and revenge," and Fortresses let you defeat enemy strongholds and create your own orc army.

Already announced for the game are two Nemesis expansions titled Slaughter Tribe and Outlaw Tribe (featuring new orc tribes, missions, fortress updates, equipment, and more) and two story expansions titled Blade of Galadriel and Desolation of Mordor (with a new campaign, playable character with abilities, missions, allies, and more).

Bulletstorm Remaster Shows Its Serious Side With New Story Trailer

Bulletstorm Remaster Shows Its Serious Side With New Story Trailer

Six years ago, People Can Fly unleashed Bulletstorm on the world, a gonzo shooter that gave players a mayhem-filled moveset and the freedom to lay waste to enemies in over-the-top ways. The story may have gotten lost in the shuffle, but it was surprisingly OK. With the upcoming remaster, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, publisher Gearbox wants to remind you about that story, and they're doing it in a surprisingly humorless trailer.

Take a look at the clip below to see Grayson Hunt navigate a sci-fi conspiracy, as well as a few shots of some of the game's bigger set pieces. And while you're watching it, keep in mind that this is still the game that rewards you for shooting crotches, kicking bad guys into spike traps, and turning crowds of enemies into clouds of red goo.

Team 17 Announces New Sci-Fi Roguelike

Team 17 Announces New Sci-Fi Roguelike

Team 17, publisher of games like Worms and the upcoming Yooka-Laylee, has announced a new "mix of roguelike shooter, base building and survival" titled Genesis Alpha One.

The game's debut trailer shows off how those disparate elements come together to create a coherent sci-fi thriller. As you build your base through an isometric interface, you'll discover aliens aboard your newly-built station, which means you'll have to take care of them yourself or build limited-use defenses to help you out. With this being a roguelike and all, proving yourself fit to be one of the last remnants of mankind will likely be no easy task.

The trailer also hints a few story details, such as computers determining that in order to save mankind, you'll have to build "a new one." Whether that means repopulating the planet or creating a new species is unclear. The game does not currently have a release date, but will be coming to both consoles and PC.

DotEmu is bringing back a pretty deep cut, with the remastered version of the Sega Master System game Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap. The game, now called Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, features an impressive new hand-drawn art style, but developer Lizardcube is going the extra mile for retro fans. A new trailer shows just how far they're willing to go.

You can swap between the new visuals and the original 8-bit style at the press of a button. The screens above and at bottom show the same level in both formats. Take a look at the clip below for more examples.

Sail The Seas Of The Deadfire Archipelago

Sail The Seas Of The Deadfire Archipelago

After meeting its initial goal of $1.1 million in just a day, Obsidian Entertainment continues to build more content into Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire through its Fig crowdfunding campaign. 

The most recent addition to the game is a Dyrwoodan sloop called the Defiant. This ship not only acts as players' base of operations to interact with party members, but also allows them to freely navigate and explore the world. Aided by a new world map, players can now enjoy a more open-world experience as they sail around the Deadfire Archipelago, discovering uncharted islands and stumbling onto special ship-related events.

As the trailer shows below, players can also customize and upgrade their ship. Sails can be changed to reflect players' alliances, the Defiant's hull can be repainted, and the cannons can be improved for more power in combat.

New Injustice 2 Trailer Shows Superman's Return And Cyborg In Action

New Injustice 2 Trailer Shows Superman's Return And Cyborg In Action

NetherRealm Studios continued its recent string of Injustice 2 reveals with a new trailer showcasing some of the fighting game's cinematic story mode. This trailer is the first major look at the story, and manages to fit an awful lot into its brief runtime.

In the trailer, we see Batman and Robin working together, as well as Batman trying to reason with a newly liberated Superman before inevitably coming to blows. Later, players get their first look at Cyborg battling Blue Beetle in a facility that looks similar to the one Superman is being held in. It's too early to tell for certain, but if his character retains the same allegiance to Superman as in the first game, he could be partially responsible for the Man of Steel's escape. At this time, it's unknown if Cyborg is playable, as only a few moments of gameplay involving him are present here. It wouldn't be the first time NetherRealm has featured a non-playable character in story mode, as Sindel, Baraka, and Rain all made appearances in Mortal Kombat X's narrative and were never made playable. 

You can watch the trailer below.
