Burning Crosses And Bible Verses Haunt This New Teaser Trailer

about X hours ago from

The sequel to 2013’s house of survival horror, Outlast, finally has a release window. A new teaser trailer accompanying the announcement also promises to bring the unholy side of evil to the mix.

The teaser trailer most prominently features a burning upside down cross slowly coming into view. Referred to as the Cross of St. Peter or Petrin Cross, the upside down cross is commonly regarded as an anti-authority or anti-Christian icon. The original Outlast had its fair share of religious iconography, particularly the insane priest Father Martin, who blindly worshipped the ghostly Walrider.

The voice heard in the teaser also seems to be reciting portions of verses found in the Book of Revelations in the Christian Bible, stating “She made all nations drink the wine of the wrath of her fornication. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever.” It seems players can expect religious fanaticism to play some role in the game.

As hinted in the closing moments of the most recent gameplay trailer, Orks are coming to Battlefleet Gothic: Armada. You can admire these brutish creatures’ ships in some new screenshots.

Ork’s travel the cosmos in slapped-together warships comprised of scrap metal, remnants of other ships, and, occasionally, asteroids. Their fleets won’t win any beauty contests, but their high durability and overwhelming firepower compensate for any visual drawbacks.  

Battlestar Gothic: Armada is an RTS game adapted from Games Workshop's classic tabletop game. Players command and manage massive fleets of galactic battleships, which can be customized and dispatched into epic space conflicts.

Five Ups, Five Downs - The Good And Bad Of Battleborn Right Now

about X hours ago from

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to go hands on with Battleborn again. The preview consisted of a new co-op story mission, our first opportunity to see how missions play out in single-player, and two multiplayer modes.

In many ways, playing Battleborn is like walking into a house that’s a fixer-upper. I can see the potential. The game has good “bones.” It just needs some love.

Gearbox has time to improve upon the things that work and fix the elements that aren't coming together yet. Here are five of the strong points and another five elements that need some attention before the game's February 9, 2016 launch.
