Sequel Announced With Cinematic Trailer

Today brings news that Sega is continuing its partnership with Creative Assembly and Games Workshop, following up on the success of the first Total War: Warhammer title with a full sequel. This newest project is steering toward launch on PC later in 2017. If the involved parties stick to that timeframe, it will be a very fast turnaround to get to to a sequel; Total War: Warhammer only released in mid-2016.

Sega has yet to reveal much about the gameplay distinctions in this installment compared to the first, but the publisher did share some details about what players can expect out of the story and setting. Players will be moving their troops through the continents far to the west of The Old World, where four major races from the long-running fiction are battling it out over The Great Vortex, a phenomenon that has hung over the elven homeland for many thousands of years. Players have the choice between High Elves, Dark Elves, Lizardmen, and one more as-yet unannounced playable race. 

While the campaign unfolds on the western continents, Sega is also promising that an additional large campaign map that features areas of both the new and old world regions will launch at some point after initial launch of the game, and it will be free to any players who own both the original Total War: Warhammer game and its sequel.

The Bad Guys Come Out To Play In New Trailer

NetherRealm Studios dropped yet another trailer for upcoming DC-themed fighting game Injustice 2 today, this one brimming with evil character reveals like Captain Cold and Scarecrow. While fans have been speculating that these characters would be in the game for a while now based on leaks from the Injustice 2 mobile game and previous trailers, this is the first concrete confirmation that they will be playable when the game hits in May. Gorilla Grodd and Bane also get a chance to strut their stuff. You can get a look at the villainous shindig down below.

Similar to February's "Here Come The Girls" trailer, this trailer is more focused on character reveals than showing off gameplay. It does give a look at each character's super move, but if NetherRealm's recent rollouts have shown anything, character-specific trailers for each of these villains should be on their way soon.

The trailer gives you a chance to hear the game's voice cast, which is different from the film, and teases confrontations with Thanos. Groot also says his famous catchphrase, "Hello. I am a tree creature. I am very tall." The first episode, Tangled Up In Blue, will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, iOS, and Android on April 18.

Scoping Out Several Improvements

Scoping Out Several Improvements

When Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 released in 2013, we weren't big fans of the experience. In his review, former editor Tim Turi called it a "a below average, by-the-numbers affair." With linear missions and finicky controls, Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 was a shooter that could be safely skipped. Fast forward four years and Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is almost ready to launch. I recently played a near-final build of the game, and while I'm not ready to proclaim it's worth dropping every other game you're playing to pick up, it does show signs of improvement.

The most drastic improvement the third entry adds into the mix is that rather than linear missions, this game drops players into one of three large, open maps. After a significant loading time (on the build I played, the initial load lasted around five minutes), you don't need to worry about loading for the rest of the time you're in the map. When fast-traveling, the transport is nearly instantaneous. In these big worlds, you can visit your safe house to make changes to your loadout, craft ammo, and choose from the set of available missions in that map. The map I loaded into had several main missions available, as well as a large list of side missions that I could take on.

Warner Interactive has released a new trailer for the Lego City Undercover remaster, which focuses on the various vehicles you'll use to fly, drive, and steer around (and above) Lego City. 

Chase McCain and the rest of his crew have to get around somehow, and their little minifig legs can only move so quickly. Fortunately, there are more than 100 different vehicles to control, from motorcycles to helicopters – and plenty in between. Take a look at the trailer below to get a sample.

Sega's RPG Spinoff Gets A Release Date And New Trailer

Following the success of Valkyria Chronicles Remastered last year, Sega is bringing the latest entry in the cult tactical action-RPG series to the West.

Valkyria Revolution isn't a sequel to the main Valkyria Chronicles storyline; though Sega is describing the title as a spinoff, with a new timeline and setting, though the series mythology, of ragnite ore and all-powerful Valkyria, remains in the new title. Bits of the story, as well as the new, faster-paced battle system, are on full display in a new trailer:

Supergirl Throws Down With Black Adam In Latest Trailer, Gets Punched Through A Pyramid

NetherRealm studios continued their Injustice 2 info drop today with a closer look at Supergirl's role in the fighting game's highly anticipated story mode. The third in a series of Shattered Alliances trailers gives fans their first look at Black Adam's gameplay and super move, as well as a good deal of Supergirl's origins, including the destruction of her home planet and a baby Superman.

The biggest takeaway from the trailer is our first look at Supergirl's side of the story. While we've seen her in action in various trailers and in Injustice 2's closed beta, this is the first time we know much about her motivations, or her relationship with her cousin. Based on appearances, it would seem that Kara's first interactions with Superman happen at the beginning of the game, as she is seen fighting alongside him and Wonder Woman.
