Capcom Details New Multi-Mission Mode

The announcement of a team-based multiplayer shooter set in the Resident Evil universe caught many off-guard last year. To this point, Capcom has only shown off its One Life Match mode, where players go in together and try to be the last with a surviving member. Putting a uniquely Resident Evil spin on the genre, players have to not only worry about opposing human players, but also A.I. zombies that are scattered throughout the maps. Today, Capcom announced a new mode called Multi-Mission mode as a new addition to the slow-growing Umbrella Corps mode suite.

The mode cycles players through multi-round matches featuring randomized rulesets. The mode is designed to allow players to jump to different experiences without having to leave their teams and enter matchmaking. Multi-Mission mode features eight different rulesets that are cycled through at random.

Expert Observations From The First Hours Of Dark Souls III

about X hours ago from

It’s been some time since our big Dark Souls III cover story, but we recently played a significant chunk of the opening portion of the game. Our experience gave us concrete answers to many of the questions that have been lingering in the back of our minds for some time. Before we go any further: Massive spoilers lie ahead, both in terms of lore and mechanics. If you’re ready to find out more about the next game in the epic dark fantasy franchise, read on.

We played through what we believe to be the first three “zones” of the game, plus took a lengthy tour of Dark Souls III’s hub, the Firelink Shrine. Yes, as in that Firelink Shrine. Let’s get this out of the way right away: there are lots of familiar faces in Dark Souls III that players should recognize from the first game, some which are direct rips names and all. Many others are left unnamed or have slightly altered names, but absolutely represent direct counterparts. Oolacile, The Witch of Izalith, and many others are directly referred to in item descriptions. 

Watch Us Die Horribly In The Culling's Closed Alpha

It’s not every game that can pull off vomit as a tactical choice. If The Culling’s closed alpha test taught me anything though, it’s that making your enemies sick is the key to beating them with a billy club.

I spent a number of hours exploring The Culling’s Hunger Games-esque arena this weekend. And while I can’t say that I’m any good at the game yet, I can most certainly assure you that I will be coming back to hone my skills.

From the moment the menu loads, you’ll likely notice that Xaviant’s latest doesn’t take itself too seriously. The smarmy game show host that announces major in-game events lightens the mood, even as you’re running from poison gas or chasing down a fleeing foe.
