Behind The Scenes Trailer Takes You Backstage

FreeStyleGames is drastically shaking up the formula for one of gaming's biggest franchises with Guitar Hero Live. The comeback entry is changing the computer graphics to live-action video, the five colored buttons to six buttons across two rows, and the distribution more digitally focused. To show how it accomplished such massive changes for the upcoming title, FreeStyleGames has released a behind the scenes trailer showing off the process and how they made the experience feel like a live concert.

The video sees creative director and studio head Jamie Jackson, director of projects Jon Napier, and producer Joel Davey talking about why now is the right time for Guitar Hero to come back, how the team changed the point-of-view for gameplay, why GHTV is something to be excited for, and the reason for the new guitar controller. You can watch the video below.

Go Behind The Scenes With Game Of Thrones' Charles Dance

In HBO's Game of Thrones, Charles Dance plays Tywin Lannister, one of several players who believe they have been chosen to rule. Dance's role in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is more certain. He provides the voice of Emperor Emhyr var Emreis, the ruler of the Nilfgaard Empire, which is indisputably the most powerful empire in the game's world.

Below, you can see Dance recording a few lines for the game. Afterward, he delves into his thoughts on acting for a video game (The Witcher 3 is his first), and provides his take on the character. You've probably noticed the mainstreaming of fantasy themes in media across the board over the past few years, and Dance offers his take on that as well.

Unnerving Opening Teases Storyline

Warhammer 40,000: Regicide is headed to Steam Early Access on May 5, and the team at Hammerfall Publishing is celebrating with a look at the opening cinematic from the game. The video shows off a look at an increasingly disturbed character as he narrates the strange whispering voices  he’s hearing while on an alien planet.

Regicide aims to blend strategic gameplay with cinematic presentation for a new take on the long-running 40K universe. The single-player campaign includes 50 story missions following a group of space marines that come to the planet Hethgar Prime, only to uncover a series of strange transmissions.

Hammerfall plans to slowly pull back the curtain on the campaign over the course of the Early Access period. The team also plans to eventually provide cross-platform multiplayer between PC and the eventual mobile version. 

An Interview With The Developer

We recently had the chance to get some in-depth info about Satellite Reign directly from the team crafting the project. The upcoming strategy game follows in the spirit of 1996’s Syndicate Wars, which makes sense, since programmer Mike Diskett was a big part of that series back in the day.

We put some questions to several members of the development team at 5 Lives Studios to learn more about what makes Satellite Reign such an unusual and surprising game. 

What is the storyline setup for Satellite Reign?

An Experience That’s Better Played

An Experience That’s Better Played

The rhythm genre is a special subset of games for me. In addition to being a genre that I spent at least a couple thousand dollars on and poured untold hours into during my college years, it was also the genre that allowed me to transition from music journalism to game journalism. When both Guitar Hero and Rock Band went on hiatus, I felt as though a part of my gaming life was forever going to be behind me. To say that I was excited that both Guitar Hero and Rock Band are coming back is an understatement.

This past week, I had the opportunity to meet with Activision and FreeStyleGames to see the game that heralds the return of one of my favorite franchises: Guitar Hero Live. Going into the meeting, I was fairly apprehensive about the direction that FreeStyleGames had decided to take. While I was skeptical about the new guitar controller that does away with the single row of five buttons in favor of two stacked rows of three buttons, it was the live-action gameplay that had me poking fun at the title.

The intriguing character of Shao Jun first came to the attention of Assassin’s Creed fans in 2011 with the release of Assassin’s Creed: Embers. While the animated short helped conclude Ezio’s story arc, it also offered a glimpse of the young Shao Jun as she struggled to learn how to save her homeland and her branch of the Assassin order. The new trailer for Chronicles: China shows off a little more of the adventure in which she confronts the challenges at home.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China has had a rapid ramp-up towards release since first details began to emerge, and the 2.5D action game (the first in a trilogy) is headed towards release tomorrow, Tuesday, April 21, on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
