The New Shadow Of The Beast Will Include The Original As An Unlockable

Shadow of the Beast is an upcoming PlayStation 4 re-imagining of a 1987 Amiga game of the same name. As a way of paying tribute to the original, it will be included as an unlockable bonus.

The original is notoriously difficult, so the developer Heavy Spectrum has included a version of the game that offers endless continues. That option can be turned off though, for the purists, though. In the blog announcing the inclusion of the original game, Heavy Spectrum CEO and founder Matt Birch also revealed that  the game's original soundtrack can be unlocked for use in the new game, once you gain enough mana.

For more on the Shadow Of The Beast, head here to see the game in action, and see a little bit of the original, if you're unfamiliar.

The Force Awakens' Cast Returns In All-New Lego Star Wars Missions

about X hours ago from

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens predictably tells the story of the film, with the whimsical humor that TT Games' Lego titles are known for. When we visited TT Fusion a few months ago for our cover story, we were surprised to learn the studio also had the go-ahead from Lucasfilm to create canonical new story missions that show what happened before the film started. A new trailer has been released, showing off some of these missions, as well as the announcement that the movie's cast has recorded new dialogue exclusive to the game. If you've ever wanted to hear Harrison Ford say, "Wookiee cookie," this is your lucky day.

Here's a rundown of the new story content that's coming to the game on June 28, with descriptions straight from Warner Bros.

Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor Is Space Diablo With Destructible Environments

about X hours ago from

While Space Marines get all the attention in most Warhammer 40K games, Neocore Games is looking to give another faction of Imperial servants their due. The upcoming Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor Martyr focuses on (as you might have suspected), members of the Inquisition.

Unlike Space Marines, which are the Emperor’s fist among the stars, Inquisitors are the investigators. They are the detectives, wielding Imperial authority to commandeer, detain, and eliminate Xenos and Chaos threats.

When an Imperial world is deemed to corrupted, it is the Inquisitors who order an “Exterminatus,” wiping all life from the surface. And in Inquisitor Martyr, you will play one of these secretive agents.

The Natives Are Restless In Fallout 4's Far Harbor DLC Trailer

A missing woman surfaces all kinds of conflict in this island off the coast of Maine, and you're back on the case in this new trailer for Fallout 4's Far Harbor DLC.

As the sickly green pallor suggests, the island has high levels of radiation, which naturally brings out stronger-than-normal enemies as well as the Children of Atom cult.

Fallout 4's Far Harbor DLC comes out on May 19th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $24.99 (unless you have the season pass).

Watch The New Dangerous Golf Trailer Wreck The Place

about X hours ago from

Forget the country clubs (and the clubs themselves, actually), hushed announcers, and the tidy greens, because the first Dangerous Golf trailer is live, and it's here to wreak havoc.

The game isn't a golf game at all, really, but rather an excuse to destroy a number of preset environments and skillfully work out how to do so garnering the most points possible. And as the developers at Three Fields Entertainment (the minds behind the Burnout series) have told us, this video sample is just the tip of the iceberg.

For more on Dangerous Golf (coming out via download on PS4, Xbox One, and PC June 3), check out my hands-on impressions of some of the title's early boards.

Warhammer 40K: Dawn Of War III Announced With Killer Cinematic Trailer

As expected following yesterday’s tease, Sega has announced Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War III. The first trailer is devoid of gameplay, but sets up the continuing war among the Imperium, Orks, and Eldar.

In the grim dark future, there are countless soldiers of many races willing to die for their own causes. This trailer sets that up masterfully, as huge war machines tear into one another and corpses pile into mountains.

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Modern Warfare Remastered Finally Confirmed With Trailer

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Modern Warfare Remastered Finally Confirmed With Trailer

Surprising absolutely no one who was paying attending, Activision has confirmed that this year’s entry in the Call of Duty franchise is called Infinite Warfare. It will take us beyond Earth and into space.

While the setting may be in the future, the gameplay in the trailer below looks like classic Call of Duty. Sure, there are robots, zero-G walks and giant space cruisers, but this probably isn’t going to be Halo. You will get to fly spacefighters, though.
