The Bat Family Takes The Spotlight In Latest Batman: Arkham Knight Trailer

With Batman: Arkham Knight on a collision course for a June release, we're starting to learn more about the Dark Knight's arsenal. Those wonderful toys aren't his only assets. The enigmatic hero has assembled a team of allies.

Over the weekend, Warner Bros. and Rocksteady teased the appearances of Catwoman, Robin, and Nightwing. Now we get to see them in action.

It's not quite clear yet just how we'll encounter the other heroes, or if we'll be able to take control of them in the story. There are a number of team-up attacks (called "Dual Play") on display though, which makes us wonder just how those will be implemented.

We'll know more on June 23 when the game launches (and if we're lucky, even before that). Batman: Arkham Knight is headed to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Nightwing Confirmed With Teaser Trailer

The final of Batman: Arkham Knight's teaser trailers ahead of tomorrow's full trailer unveils a brooding Nightwing.

Much like the similar teaser trailers for Catwoman and Azrael (at least we're pretty sure it's Azrael), the very short teaser shows Nightwing looking into the camera silently saying, "Yes, I am in this game. But I am not telling you anything else."

All of these teasers are for a new trailer premiering tomorrow titled, “All Who Follow You,” which the game's director Sefton Hill has been teasing for some time.

Hands-On With The Enhanced Mobility And Specialists

With Black Ops III, Treyarch is changing a lot about the Call of Duty formula. On the campaign side of things, the developer is embracing four-player co-op, more open spaces, and near-future technology for its missions. The developer is also promising lots of customization options throughout. While I had the opportunity to see much of these new features in action during a studio visit to Treyarch last week, I also got my hands on the competitive multiplayer.

Here are several ways in which Treyarch is changing the game for Black Ops III.

Treyarch Unveils First Details

Activision has revealed the first details for Call of Duty: Black Ops III, the newest entry in gaming’s biggest first-person shooting franchise. Taking place a few decades after the catastrophic, history-changing events of Black Ops II, Black Ops III is set to inject more new technology and mechanics than any Call of Duty franchise in years.

Calling in reinforcements

Harnessing the power of cybernetic augmentations and a new sub-dermal technology called Direct Neural Interface, soldiers in the campaign are more capable to combat the threats that face them than ever before. DNI technology enables soldiers to communicate with one another in new ways, which comes in handy when considering the new design approaches the campaign of Black Ops III takes.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is being fully unveiled today, and the trailer showcases plenty of gameplay and new mechanics.

Alongside hearing Rolling Stones' "Paint it Black," you will also see robots, jetpack jumps, transforming robot arms, wall running, super punching, and a tease for zombies.

The game arrives November 6, and pre-ordering the game will give you access to the beta on either Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or PC. We'll have more previews and features on the game today, including hands-on feedback, so keep an eye out.

Catwoman And More Confirmed With Pair Of Teaser Trailers

Rocksteady has released a pair of excruciatingly short Batman: Arkham Knight teaser trailers that confirm the return of Catwoman and likely Azrael.

You can check out the two teasers below. The Catwoman teaser was released today and is titled "2 days." The other teaser, which is very likely Azrael, was released yesterday and is titled "3 days." In all likelihood, there will a "1 day" teaser tomorrow before the “All Who Follow You” trailer premieres on April 27, something the game's director was teasing last weekend.

MachineGames Looks To The Past To Inform The Future

about X hours ago from

Wolfenstein: The New Order emerged as a surprise favorite for many gamers in 2014, thanks to its taut action and focus on classic single-player shooting experiences. The team at MachineGames has a stand-alone follow-up on the way in the form of The Old Blood. The game is releasing digitally on May 5th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

We asked executive producer Jerk Gustafsson to tell us what the team has in store. 

Why make this a standalone game rather than an expansion to The New Order?
