Cooperative Spellcasting Game Arrives Later This Year

Frozenbyte, the creators of the Trine series, are hard at work developing Nine Parchments. Nine Parchments is a cooperative spellcasting blast-'em-up action game that can be played by up to four players.

You play as a group of wizrarding students on a quest to find powerful spell parchments. Although the game has a focus on multiplayer (both online and locally), it can also be experienced solo. It mixes chaotic magical action along with RPG elements, such as leveling up your character, learning new spells, and the ability to unlock other playable characters as you progress.

Soma Coming To Xbox One With New Optional Safe Mode

Frictional Games has announced Soma is coming to Xbox One. Those players won't have to wait long to experience the game's underwater terrors, either.

The game is hitting on December 1, and the Xbox One version of the game includes an optional new mode. In Safe Mode, players can still experience the same existential terror beneath the waves, just without the monsters that skulk Soma's dark hallways and the ocean floor.

Sega Launches 'Total War Saga' Series With Thrones Of Britannia

Sega and Creative Assembly have announced a new Total War series, which hones in on particular settings and specific time periods. Thrones of Britannia is the first entry in the A Total War Saga series, and it's set to release on PC next year.

The game is set in 878 A.D., after the Vikings have successfully invaded Britain. A variety of kings are scrambling for power, which is where you come in. 

"Our aim with Total War Sagas is to explore key flashpoints at distinct places and times in history," says series director Mike Simpson. "Unlike our era-spanning titles, we're putting defined geographical areas under the microscope, building super-detailed campaign maps with a strong cultural focus and flavour that players can dive into. This will complement our broader-scope titles perfectly."

What's Gained And What's Lost In L.A. Noire's Transition To VR? Hands On Impressions

What's Gained And What's Lost In L.A. Noire's Transition To VR? Hands On Impressions

Launching shortly after the remastered versions on traditional consoles, L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files is the kind of high-profile title virtual reality platforms like the HTC Vive needs more of in the coming months and years if they're going to gain traction as viable gaming platforms.

L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files doesn’t follow the narrative of Cole Phelps’ rise up the LAPD ranks. Instead, it streamlines the experience into a collection of seven cases pulled from the original game that lend themselves best to the VR format: Upon Reflection, Armed and Dangerous, Buyer Beware, The Consul’s Car, The Silk Stocking Murder, Reefer Madness, and A Different Kind of War. Unlike the original game, which used a third-person perspective, you experience each of these cases from the first-person perspective of the ambitious detective.
