Tense Trailer Sells Planet Castaway Fantasy

After awakening from cryogenic hibernation on an alien world, your first task is to repair your shelter to prolong your life. You be tasked to explore the environment to uncover supplies that can help your cause. Along the way, the narrative of what happened to you and the shelter unfolds. Yes, this sounds a lot like the book and film The Martian, but it also sounds like an interesting science-fiction mystery and a game that's trying something different.

Developed by Drama Drifters and published by Nkidu Games, this PC title is right around the corner, with a tentative May release date. The short trailer below gives us a brief tease of what we can expect from the gameplay and narrative. Set in the year 2245, it would appear the player uses some kind of drone to explore the terrain and mine resources, and various computer systems to repair equipment and a lab to compose new items.

Nkidu's marketing materials stress the point that players will "face the truth" as the game unfolds, implying the story will be front and center. As of today, Breached can be added to Steam wishlists.

Playful Trailer Reveals Ubisoft's New Take On RTS

about X hours ago from

Today sees a surprise announcement from Ubisoft, with the reveal of a new fantasy-themed strategy game. Champions of Anteria looks to offer a different twist on RTS through a combination of hero-focused unit play, upgradeable home strongholds, and learning the ways to interweave five distinct elemental power sets.

In its announcement, Ubisoft puts the focus on its hero units, each of which wields one of the five elements: fire, water, nature, lightning, and metal. In any given mission, you’ll choose three of the five available heroes, and venture forth to confront armies of undead, goblins, vikings, and cyclops, among many other enemy factions, as well as boss fights against a bevy of larger foes. In between missions, you can develop your characters back at the stronghold, crafting points, armor, weapons, and more.

The Ubisoft-published project is being developed by Blue Byte, and the digital-only title is targeting a release on PC on August 30 for $29.99. Check out the announcement trailer below.

The New LawBreakers Trailer Is Bloody And Profane, Alpha Registration Open

If you like what you see from Boss Key Productions' upcoming multiplayer shooter in the new "Between Our Guns" trailer, you can sign up for the alpha now on the official LawBreakers website.

The trailer drops the f-bomb a couple times, but also shows off LawBreakers' unique over-the-top action, including a shot of someone blindly shooting over their shoulder, Force lightning, rockets everywhere, and someone apparently going super saiyan. There's also a perfectly timed boot kick that ends with someone rag-dolling like a helicopter. Outside of the odd dialogue choice for the trailer, the game looks like good fun.

Boss Key recently announced that LawBreakers would no longer be a free-to-play game, and that it would launch exclusively through Steam.
