Shao Jun Prepares To Attack In New Trailer

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. Check out the trailer, and see if this new side project for the Assassin’s Creed franchise might be for you.

Is WWE 2K Mobile Worth A Try?

Is WWE 2K Mobile Worth A Try?

WWE has made inroads in the mobile space with the Mortal Kombat-inspired WWE Immortals and trading card title WWE Supercard. But the company hasn't made a straight-up wrestling game until today's release on iOS and Android, WWE 2K. Is it worth the $7.99 price tag? Depends on your expectations.

[Updated with more screens. Originally published April 16 2015 07:50 AM]

If you're hoping for the all the bells and whistles of the console games, you're going to be highly disappointed. A lot is missing from this package, but if you're looking for a traditional wrestling game with touchscreen controls and your favorite stars, it holds up on the basics.

An Impressive First Look At Star Wars: Battlefront

about X hours ago from

Electronic Arts' walled-off booth at Star Wars Celebration contains one of the show's best-kept secrets, a lengthy video of the forthcoming Star Wars: Battlefront video game. The booth interior, which we were not allowed to take photos of, is designed to look like a Rebel Alliance briefing room, complete with a command terminal in the middle, and tiered seating for the pilots, soldiers, and less-important game journalists like myself. The setting screamed classic trilogy, and was the perfect fit for the demo DICE had on hand: a gameplay slice recreating the Battle of Endor from the film, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

The demo shows off the advancements of DICE's Frostbite engine, and clearly illustrates what players can expect when the game launches on November 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Here's what we saw:

The DemoAll is quiet on Endor, but the Rebel Alliance troops patrolling the forest floor don't anticipate it will remain this way for long. They are alert, fingers on triggers, heads swiveling frantically, waiting for the Galactic Empire to emerge from the thick forest foliage. The trees stretch high into the air, their canopy blocking out most of the mid-day sunlight, and knee-high plants give the nerves no reprieve as they sway gently in the breeze.

Polygon Like It's 1995 In New PS1-Style Survival-Horror Game

Polygon Like It's 1995 In New PS1-Style Survival-Horror Game

We play a lot of PlayStation 1-era games here at Game Informer as part of our Replay show. We have a soft spot in particular for survival-horror games of that era, in all their paddle-handed, flat-face glory. Indie devs have turned to games from the pixelated age of 8- and 16-bit games for inspiration, and for good reason: They look cool. But what of those angular, aliased and grubby-looking PS1 and Saturn games? Does anyone remember those? Apparently, a Japanese indie developer does, and he's tapping into the style for an all new adventure.

There's not much to see yet from Takaaki Ichijo's game Back in 1995, but the clip below should instantly show what he's going for. It captures the essence of those mid-'90s games, with their funky textures, flashing seams, and amateurish camera work. While terrible controls would make it more accurate of an experience, we're hoping he goes easy on us in that department.

Survive A Violent Revolution By Doing Chores In Sunset

In recent years, we've seen an explosion in first-person adventures that eschew combat in favor of exploration based, narrative driven experiences. Add the 1970s Latin American revolution game Sunset to this collection.

Brought to us by the Belgian developer Tale of Tales, Sunset puts players in the shoes of Angela Burnes, an American tourist who gets trapped in a fictional South American city after its dictator closes the border. To survive, she takes a job cleaning the exquisite apartment of wealthy dissident Gabriel Ortega. As the streets rattle with explosions outside, Burnes takes sanctuary in Ortega's home each day around sunset to wipe down the windows, clean his dishes, and perform other housekeeping tasks. As you go about your duties, each day you get a chance to snoop through a different part of his house. Whether you rifle through his things to find out more about your mysterious employer or keep on the straight and narrow is up to you. Whatever actions you take (or don't take) will shape your relationship with Ortega. Check out the latest trailer:
