Supergiant's Party-Based RPG Gets Intense New Trailer

Supergiant Games, the developer behind Bastion and Transistor, has released a new launch trailer detailing the exiles, Rites, and more, in the mystical purgatory called the Downside.

In Pyre, you are responsible for leading a group of exiles across the Downside, taking on other exiles in an ancient competition called the Rites (that looks a lot like a game of NBA Jam) as you fight to extinguish your enemies' pyre while defending your own. A single orb is the primary tool of destruction in the Rites, and opposing players must take control of the orb and launch it at the opposing team's pyre to cause damage. Each character possesses different innate abilities with unique benefits for combat and traversing the arena, although a general skill tree is also available for leveling up.

The game offers a two-player local multiplayer mode as well as a single-player mode which, upon defeat, adapts the story instead of giving a Game Over.

Latest Yakuza Kiwami Trailer Shows You How To Bring A Motorcycle To A Fistfight

The latest trailer for Yakuza Kiwami shows off the both the mundane of Yakuza, like playing crane games and singing karaoke, and the absurd, like punching someone with a motorcycle.

Yakuza Kiwami is a remake of the original Yakuza game that found a lot of success on Japan in 2005, but didn't find a huge audience in North America when it released for PlayStation 2 in 2006. Kiwami represents another chance for the series' origins to find its audience, which should be a lot easier this time around thanks to the new fandom generated from Yakuza 0 earlier this year,

Hack Into The Horror Of A New Trailer For Cyberpunk Title Observer

The future is indeed a scary place. Observer, which takes place in the definite dystopia of Poland 2084, puts you in the shoes of detective Dan Lazarski as he hacks into suspects' minds and invades their fears.

The game's new story trailer sheds a little more light on the game's context as well as Lazarski – played by Rutger Hauer from the original Blade Runner, among other films.

Our own Javy had a 10-minute demo of the title and thought highly of it enough to include it in our list of the best indie games from this year's GDC.

A Video Tour Of The Beta

Today sees the launch of the Destiny 2 beta for everyone who pre-ordered the game on PS4. Xbox One pre-orderers can look forward to diving in tomorrow, and the beta will go completely open this weekend for all console players. 

Andy McNamara and I have both been dedicated players of the original Destiny since its launch in 2014, and after many months of waiting, we sat down today for a first look at the beta. As we show off sections of the story, strike, and competitive action that the beta offers, we also took the time to discuss some of the changes coming to the game, how the game appeals to newcomers and lapsed players, and also the numerous aspects of gameplay that we have yet to learn about for the big sequel. 

Enjoy the video!

The first episode, entitled Awake, comes out on August 31 (PS4, Xbox One, and PC), and today developer Deck Nine Games (taking over for Dontnod for this prequel) released a video centering on Chloe and how this is a different time for the character both on the screen and off.

New Trailer Introduces Us To The Firing Squad

It's another "Mayhem Monday" which means it's time for some more news from Volition's Agents of Mayhem. This week, there's a new trailer that introduces us to the Firing Squad, a group described as "morally flexible and occasionally reliable." 

First up is Oni, a former Yakuza assassin who uses a silenced pistol and can weaken enemies with his aura of fear. Next up is a familiar face, Pierce Washington from the Saints Row franchise. He's a wannabe hip-hop star who was recruited to the team after unifying the gangs in Stilwater. His special power allows him to hypnotize enemies into dancing. Finally, we have the Iranian assassin Scheherazade who moves fast and vanishes into thin air before destroying L.E.G.I.O.N. soldiers with her sword and knives.
