First Live Stream Brings New Multiplayer Map And Final Specialist

Starting this week, Treyarch is beginning a weekly live stream series leading up to the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops III on November 6. During its first broadcast of this campaign, Treyarch revealed a new multiplayer map called, as well as the ninth and final multiplayer Specialist character.

The first reveal of the live stream was a new multiplayer map called Redwood. "This map is very different from any other map that we have in the game or any map we've really done in the past," game director of multiplayer Dan Bunting said during the broadcast. "It's set in the Redwoods – as its name would suggest – in northern California, and it's a little bit outside of the core fiction of our game, but it lives inside the universe. And it's a military emplacement that's got some sky bridges connecting between different trees and it's a very just picturesque and serene kind of setting for the mayhem that happens in war."

A New Hope For Star Wars Multiplayer

A New Hope For Star Wars Multiplayer

With Star Wars hype reaching new heights thanks to the impending theatrical release of The Force Awakens, DICE hopes to capitalize with its revitalization of the beloved Battlefront franchise. I spent several hours with the beta for one final look at the shooter before it hits store shelves.

Battlefront is undeniably gorgeous. Whether you’re running through the snowy trenches of Hoth or exploring the rocky canyons of Sullust, the details and lighting effects are among the most impressive I’ve witnessed on consoles.

Prior to jumping into the beta, I had my concerns about the experience DICE would deliver, but the gunplay and character navigation feel updated and smooth, whether you’re using the first- or third-person views through the three modes in the beta. 

Building A Better Deus Ex With Mankind Divided

about X hours ago from

Eidos Montreal’s reboot of the Deus Ex universe in 2011 was one of last generation’s more ambitious efforts. Adam Jensen’s world felt alive, and while the game wasn’t perfect, it certainly captured the feel of the originals while updating for modern sensibilities.

With Mankind Divided, the studio is directly addressing the criticisms levied against the first game. Human Revolution’s boss battles were incongruous with the rest of the experience, forcing players into open combat, regardless of how they chose to play the game. These were reworked for the Director’s Cut, and the lessons learned from that feedback have been applied to Mankind Divided.

More importantly, Eidos is working to find a better balance between the different play styles. In Human Revolution, the game was weighted toward stealth, with a less than ideal combat design.

PC Remaster Gets New Trailer, Updated Release Date

Today Rodeo Games revealed both a new trailer and an earlier release date for Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch – Enhanced Edition. PC-users will now be able to lead space marines into battle when the remastered turn-based strategy game comes out October 16 on Steam.

The enhanced version of the summer mobile title Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch will include more than 40 missions spread across the ravaged outskirts of Imperial Space. With fifty playable characters from six chapters – Space Wolves, Dark Angels, Ultramarines, Imperial Fists, Blood Angels, and Black Templars — and hundreds of weapons to choose from, armchair tacticians should have plenty of options for defeating the marauding Tyranids.

Just Cause 3’s Chaotic Sandbox Is All About Making Physics Fun

Just Cause 3’s Chaotic Sandbox Is All About Making Physics Fun

Just Cause 3 has an enormous, open world. The destruction looks fantastic, and the traversal systems have been refined and polished to make Rico feel even better to control. So why did I stand in one place for 10 minutes giggling?

Yesterday, I had the chance to play around in Avalanche’s sandbox largely unfettered. I was able to move around one segment of the 400 square mile open world (about the same size as Just Cause 2, but more densely packed with activities), and there were plenty of challenges to undertake and towns to liberate.

Instead, I found a new friend. I named him Giuseppe. When I first met the kindly, old man, he was sweeping his porch. He waved to me and told me how grateful he was that I was helping his country.

Celebrate Freedom From Early Access In This New Trailer

The totally bro-tacular multiplayer shooter is finally freeing itself from the shackles of Early Access. Publisher Devolver Digital has announced that Broforce is transitioning into full release next week, and they do it with the most American trailer imaginable.

The full release will feature a new set of campaign missions as the bros travel to Hell for one final confrontation with Satan. Broforce musician Deon van Heerden and developer Free Lives have also released a five-track Freedom EP of Broforce music for early access buyers, including the trailer track “Ballad of Rambro.” The album will be available for purchase at a “prohibitively expensive” price after release, according to Devolver Digital.

The full release of Broforce also includes content released through early access since the game’s inception in 2012. This includes over a dozen characters like the Brominator and Brobocop, a level editor, and a versus and co-op mode. 

Lego Marvel's Avengers Pulls In More Of The Marvel Movies And Characters

"You'd think that taking the [voice tracks] direct, would limit what you can do," Traveler's Tales' Arthur Parsons tells me. "But it's actually pretty cool." When I previewed Lego Marvel's Avengers at Gamescom, I enjoyed the Battle for New York and Clint Barton's farm segments, but worried a bit that the follow-up to Lego Marvel Superheroes was bound to the two Avengers films.

I was told at the time that more news was coming, and that the game had much more to offer than The Avengers and its sequel, Age of Ultron. Earlier this week, I found out exactly what a large chunk of that extra content is and how it's woven together.

In order to tell a cohesive story, Traveler's Tales is reordering the events and making use of flashbacks. The game opens up with an almost shot-for-shot remake of the opening scene of Age of Ultron. I say "almost," because there have been a number of changes for comedic purposes. "It has to be authentic, as well as fun," Parsons says.

Capcom Adds All-New Character Laura To The Roster

about X hours ago from

The Street Fighter V roster continues to expand. While we've already seen several familiar faces appear in Street Fighter V, Capcom has done a good job of adding all-new characters to the upcoming fifth numbered entry in the legendary fighting franchise. At the Brasil Game Show, Capcom officially announced Laura Matsuda as the latest addition to the roster.

Laura joins Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Cammy, Vega, M. Bison, Birdie, Charlie Nash, Necalli, R. Mika, Rashid, Karin, and Zangief on the current Street Fighter V roster. Laura, who hails from Brazil, represents the first Jiu-Jitsu specialist in the Street Fighter franchise. She uses a grapple technique that features a projectile called Thunder Clap that stuns opponents. This move is designed to cause indecision in opponents' minds as they debate getting in close to engage Laura.

The new fighter also has a "Spark Show" state, which makes her projectiles further-reaching and her attacks and grabs deal enhanced levels of stun damage. With her moveset, Capcom claims Laura could become a favorite for players who like to get in close with their strategies. You can see Laura in action below and judge for yourself.
