New Trailer Shows How To Make A Buck

Last week, Splash Damage released a tutorial video focusing on the game's controls, characters, weapons, and abilities. Learning how to play is certainly important, but today's new trailer gets right down to business. You might think that an abandoned city isn't the best place to find a job – and that's where you'd be wrong. While your character is a mercenary or a private-military contractor, there's room to explore a few part-time jobs, too.

These might not be officially sanctioned careers, but players can live out their dreams working with trains, throwing surprise parties, and more. You're in an evacuated London five years from now following the aftermath of a dirty-bomb explosion, so you can basically do whatever you want.

An Brief, Icy Look At Star Wars Battlefront’s Hoth

An Brief, Icy Look At Star Wars Battlefront’s Hoth

There is a reason that so many Star Wars games take us to The Empire Strikes Back setting of Hoth. The evacuation of the Rebel Alliance gave us snow speeders, AT-ATs, and tow cables. It looks like we’ll be headed back to the ice planet once more.

The official EA Star Wars account shared a short clip of the skirmish from the point of view of a soldier on the ground. It’s not clear if this is in-engine, so don’t get your hopes up quite yet.

Well, that speeder isn't going anywhere. Can someone give us a lift to @SW_Celebration http://t.co/srEVrAA0zl #SWCA https://t.co/4W4LG8myke

Evolve's Newest Hunters & Behemoth Trade Blows In Gameplay Video

about X hours ago from

March 31 is a big day for Evolve, as that's when it gets a new monster and four new hunters, among other content. If you're interested in just what these additions bring to the table, developer Turtle Rock Games has released a new gameplay video showcasing a match between these formidable forces.

The video reveals the Behemoth's useful roll, rock wall, and tongue grab, as well as the hunter's varied skills and weapons – including the medic's leech gun and the assault's weak-spot creating shrapnel grenade. The video contains useful commentary filled with plenty of tips on how to best play as either the monster or one of the hunters.

Regardless if you get the Behemoth or new set of hunters, you'll still be able to play Evolve with those who have. The Behemoth is free to those who preordered the game (otherwise it's $14.99), and the hunters are part of the Hunting Season Pass ($24.99) or $7.49 individually. Observer mode and two new maps are free to everyone on March 31. The maps hit Xbox One first on that date, and the other platforms get them on April 30.

Review In Progress

Review In Progress

Pillars of Eternity is a big game. I’ve spent recent days digging into a review build of Obsidian’s spiritual successor to Baldur’s Gate II, and if there’s one takeaway, it’s that players have a lot of content to look forward to. We’re holding off on a review until I’ve completed the game and had the chance to dig into more side quests and stronghold building options the game has to offer. In the meantime, if you are on the fence about a day-one purchase, I’m here to share my opinions so far.

There are any number of things that can go wrong in the latter acts of a role-playing game to spoil the fun. Balance can go off-kilter, story threads can get mishandled, and character upgrades can run out of steam. With those caveats, the first hours spent in Pillars of Eternity have me incredibly impressed.  Obsidian’s RPG does almost everything I hoped it would do, presenting a compelling world, challenging tactical combat, and numerous opportunities for interesting role-playing interactions.  

R.B.I. Baseball 15 Heading To Xbox One And PlayStation 4 This Month

about X hours ago from

We're still not sure of the release dates for all the platforms, but Major League Baseball Advanced Media has confirmed the game will at least be on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this month.

Major League Baseball Advanced Media confirmed the release dates with Polygon, and the price. The game will be $19.99 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Release dates and pricing for other planned platforms, PC, Mac, iOS, and select Android devices, have not yet been announced.

We gave the previous R.B.I. game, R.B.I. Baseball 14, a very low two out of town in our review, which you can read here. Andrew Reiner wrote of the game, "The visuals are somewhat modern, and the rosters are current, but everything that happens after the pitch is thrown harks back to the ‘80s – a time when developers were just starting to figure out how to make baseball games."

Trailblazing into new territory is rarely a peaceful process, and it’s foolish to think the expansion into space would be any less bloody. Atari has given Game Informer an exclusive look at the premier trailer for developer Salty Games' first-person MMO space survival game, Asteroids: Outpost. Underwater in space, no one can hear your pet goldfish scream.

Check out the trailer below to see a stylish, slow-motion glimpse at the chaotic interstellar frontier. Be sure to also check out three new exclusive screenshots in the media gallery below this story.

Cast Magical Spells With Your Mind In Stillalive's Action Adventure Game

Cast Magical Spells With Your Mind In Stillalive's Action Adventure Game

Being able to lift large boulders to crush enemies and shooting fire from your palms may sound like abilities from Avatar: The Last Airbender, but Son of Nor takes these powers a step further. With top-tier peripherals, the game empowers the player by blending fantasy with realism.

Players can cast spells with their mind by wearing the brainwave-reading headset – a concept normally seen in science fiction. Similarly, large hills of sand can be maneuvered just by shifting your gaze with an eye-tracking tool, and the Oculus Rift brings virtual reality into the mix as well.

Son of Nor's supported peripherals are what’s most intriguing. The Emotiv EPOC, for example, reads the player's brain activity and translates it into in-game actions. When the device is active, the game progresses the player through a tutorial, teaching them up to three cognitive spells that react to thoughts and facial muscle tensions. Lifting heavy boulders on-screen is achieved by mentally visualizing the command, and a twitch of the eyebrows shoots the rocks into the air. While being a tad finicky and at times hard to believe, when it works it proves to be incredibly engaging.
