Rico Parachutes Into A Tornado In New Just Cause 4 Trailer, Because Why Not?

Just Cause hero Rico Rodriguez is no stranger to danger – we're talking about a guy who will throw himself from a plane at 10,000 feet and use his grappling hook to grab onto another vehicle in midair. In Just Cause 4, the maniac thrill seeker throws himself into the eye of a tornado. 

Avalanche Studio's new Apex engine is on full display here, as the tornado rips through buildings and sends their remains flying in every direction. Meanwhile, Rico follows along in a vehicle built specifically for storm chasing. Why is he following the tornado, exactly? Who cares. It looks badass.

Just Cause 4 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on December 4. To learn more about the game, you can read Javy's hands-on impressions from E3

Exclusive Hands-on With Darksiders III's Latest Demo

Exclusive Hands-on With Darksiders III's Latest Demo

From its inception, Darksiders was meant to be a multi-entry franchise. The four biblical horsemen of the apocalypse are its protagonists, after all. Following the release of the second game and the collapse of publisher THQ, the future of the franchise looked apocalyptic, and not in the fun video game way we all appreciate. However, many of the developers of the first two games (though notably not the series’ creator, Joe Madureira) reformed to create Gunfire Games, and that studio is picking up the series where it left off. Gunfire Games will be taking a demo of Darksiders III to Gamescom, but we got a chance to play through it first.

The first Darksiders followed the exploits of the horseman War, Darksiders II followed Death, and the third follows Fury, War’s sister. The final horseman, Strife, makes a shadowy appearance in the demo’s opening cutscene, but whether or not he will be a major factor in the game remains to be seen.

Generation Zero Continues To Impress With A New Gameplay And Open World Trailer

Generation Zero, the open-world shooter from Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios, impressed us at E3 2018 a couple months ago. Avalanche has given us glimpses of the gameplay, but now it's ready to show off more of the open world through the latest trailer.

Set in an alternate version of 1980s Sweden, Generation Zero casts you as a vacationer returning home to find your quiet countryside home has been invaded by massive, hostile machines. Your job is to defend your home turf while figuring out why this invasion happened. Generation Zero supports fully customizable characters, seamless cooperative multiplayer for up to four players, and a persistent world where any damage you do to enemies is permanent.

Avalanche Studios released a new trailer for Generation Zero today. The new video shows off how you can use stealth and strategy to your advantage, as well as how looting the scraps of machines you kill can give you the upper hand in battle.

NHL 19 Franchise Mode Interview: Learn The Nitty Gritty Details About The New Scouting System

NHL 19 Franchise Mode Interview: Learn The Nitty Gritty Details About The New Scouting System

A few months ago, we painted the broad strokes of what franchise mode fans can expect from NHL 19. A completely revamped scouting mode gives users control of up to 20 scouts to gather information on prospects throughout the world, as well as keep tabs on player progression/regression across the NHL. Keeping your player reports up to date will be vital to making savvy trades and free agency acquisition, because if you're using out of date data you may end up spending too much to add a player who is already on the downswing of his career. 

The prospect scouting reports, amateur stats, player comparisons, and central scouting rankings give users more information than they've had in previous years to make smart draft-day decisions, and a dramatically expanded 50-player draft board makes it much easier to outline your plan of attack. You'll want to especially watch out for the gem and bust designations from your scouts; identifying a few late-round gems could turn your struggling franchise into a cup contender down the line.

After playing with the scouting system for a couple hours and going through a draft, I hopped on the phone with producer Gurn Sumal to talk about the vision for this new system and how the scouting affects the rest of the moving pieces in franchise mode. Before we dive in, watch this 16-minute tour of the new features narrated by Sumal.
