about X hours ago from

The team at Wales Interactive has announced Soul Axiom, a first-person action/adventure game where players roam the world to uncover the mystery of their life (and afterlife). The title is slated to arrive on Steam Early Access next week, with Xbox One, PS4, and WiiU versions due at a later date.

In Soul Axiom’s world, humans can upload their memories and dreams to a server known as Elysia to be lived and relived for eternity. While few specifics about the game are known, Soul Axiom’s setting and tone seem to follow in the footsteps of Wales Interactive's previous title, Master Reboot.

The game is set in a trippy, dreamlike techno-environment in the near future. You can take a peek at the trailer and screenshots below to see the team’s interpretation of the server-based world.

Year Walk Developer Explores The Sailor’s Dream On November 6

Simogo, the studio behind last year’s Year Walk and Device 6, has announced when we’ll explore its latest mobile title. The Sailor’s Dream will be out in just a couple of weeks, and we still don’t know much about it.

You might recall that Simogo has been careful about how much it’s shared about the title. Last month, the developer shared that it was purposely being tight-lipped so as not to give too much away.

“It’s quite simple,” the developer says. “We just don’t don’t want to rob you of the sense of wonder and discovery.”

In the latest trailer for Ubisoft’s upcoming social racer, The Crew, we get a deeper look at the ways you can customize your vehicles. In addition to car tuning, you can also earn perks for your profile that apply to whatever you’re driving.

The Crew features five different specs (street, performance, dirt, raid, and circuit), and you can swap to a different vehicle at any time. Given that you’re intended to be racing with friends, not having to return to the garage to grab a new car seems like a smart convenience.

Escaping The Bermuda Triangle In PS4's Lost Sea

about X hours ago from

It's pretty much a given that if you fly through the Bermuda Triangle, bad things are going to happen. In Lost Sea, getting lost is just the start of your ordeal. After your plane crashes in the Triangle and you're washed ashore an island, you must build a ship to escape. But getting back to civilization isn't as easy as sailing into the sunset. That nearby island with the ominous swirling vortex above it surely must be a part of your route home.

The action/strategy title takes place in a procedurally generated archipelago where you must gather resources to survive and then to build a ship.

Balancing short term survival with your long-term aims is the key to the game, and there are tradeoffs in everything you do. For instance, keeping up your health is important in the near term, but saving resources for powerful upgrades could make your life a lot easier on the whole.

Screw Attack Games Announces Puzzle Platformer Disorder

Screw Attack Games, which published Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures (our review), has revealed its next project. Disorder is a story about a troubled youth that has had a childhood filled with despair. Players will venture through his mind in an effort to help heal him.

The live action trailer for the game reveals a project that is very different than Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures. It’s clear that this title, despite its rudimentary visuals, deals with weighty subjects.

Shadow Warrior Arrives On PS4 And Xbox One With Bloody Launch Trailer

about X hours ago from

Shadow Warrior, a reboot of the classic 3D Realms’ title, has arrived on new-gen consoles. If you happened to miss it on PC last year, you can catch up on the swords, guns, and demon magic on PS4 and Xbox One.

The update leaves behind the racially insensitive content of the original, while keeping some important elements intact. You’re sword is quite useful for hacking demons to bits. The guns and explosions are present. And the main character, Lo Wang, makes all the jokes you’d expect of someone with that name.

Remedy’s Sam Lake Walks Us Through The Quantum Break Gamescom Demo

about X hours ago from

At Gamescom this year, we had a chance to check out Quantum Break in action for the first time. In a new video, Remedy creative director Sam Lake walks us through the gameplay and the time-shifting powers featured within.

This segment follows Jack as he has to navigate a bridge under siege by Monarch forces under the command of villain Paul Serene. Quantum Break features familiar gunplay, but once the time-based powers come into the mix, the title starts to differentiate itself.

The other part of Quantum Break’s gameplay are the moments when time stutters. These require a bit of problem solving and some platforming, too.

We’re certainly looking forward to finding out more about the game and its story. This includes the live-action segments that will be woven into the narrative and relate to the choices you’ll make as Paul Serene at the end of each chapter.

Quantum Break is on track for release in 2015 for Xbox One. For more, read our impressions from Gamescom. Also, note the Night Springs t-shirt at the end of the demo. Remedy gave us an inside line on that when we saw them in Germany.
