Explore Trippy Floating Monster Heads In This PS4 VR Puzzler

about X hours ago from

Monsters are generally unsettling, terrifying things that you'd prefer to flee from, far and fast. By contrast, Gnog forces players to zoom in on weird creatures' heads and enter their minds to solve puzzles, complete with Sony's upcoming Morpheus virtual reality hardware.

Gnog is a collaborative project between developer Ko-Op and indie publisher/developer Double Fine. Ko-Op is also receiving funding from Sony's Indie Pub Fund initiative, since the game will be arriving on PlayStation 4 next year and taking advantage of Sony's VR headset. The psychadelic puzzle game is very enigmatic at this point, and watching the trailer below only makes the entire noggin-exploring adventure even more befuddling.

Puzzler QUBE's New Mode In Action

QUBE: The Director's Cut comes out this summer for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Wii U featuring a new mode called Against the Clock. As the name implies, speed is of the essence, and a new trailer for the mode shows you exactly how it's done.

The video shows you how to get through the mode's first level, but rest assured, the challenges will get progressively harder. If you get particularly good at the game, you can always see how you stack up against the rest of the world via an online leaderboard.

For more on the game, take a look at its previous trailer.

Battleborn Arrives This Winter With 25 Heroes, New Info About Progression System, Modes

about X hours ago from

2K and Gearbox have delivered some new information about Battleborn that gives us a better look at what to expect from the game. There's also a new, flashy trailer that gives us a look at some of the 25 heroes.

Battleborn will have three main modes when it arrives. Players can jump into the story by themselves or with a team of up to five online. Gearbox is designing the game so that there is value in replaying story missions for better loot.

There's also a competitive five-versus-five multiplayer mode with three different game types. Incursion plays out like a typical MOBA. The first team to destroy the enemy base (with the help of AI minions) wins.

Total War: Warhammer Shows Off Its Epic Battles

about X hours ago from

We had a chance to take a look at some of the battles that are coming with Creative Assembly’s Total War: Warhammer, and things look promising. While we’re used to seeing swarms of humans tearing into each other with swords, axes, and catapults, this diversion to the realm of fantasy features fantastic creatures and creations that would seem completely out of place in the more historically-rooted franchise. Trolls, flying monsters, steam tanks, spellcasters, demigryphs, and even Karl Franz make an appearance in a demo of the Battle of Blackfire Pass, and things looked incredible. I’ve always wondered how fantasy and the Total War franchise would look like if they came together, and even the single battle we witnessed makes a strong case that these elements should keep coming together (although I’m still completely okay with the more historical titles as well).

As unabashed fans of both heist movies and revenge stories, The Masterplan has our interest piqued. Add in a story penned by Tom Jubert (The Swapper, The Talos Principle) and we're definitely curious.

The Masterplan takes place in 1970s America, and you are tasked with assembling a team to stick up convenience stores, banks, art galleries, and more. You'll be able to plan the job however you want. You can be silent and get out without detection or make some noise and spill some blood.

MechWarrior Online Reborn And Going Strong With New Persistent Galactic War

MechWarrior Online Reborn And Going Strong With New Persistent Galactic War

When Infinite Games Publishing, one half of the MechWarrior Online team, went defunct, it could have meant the end of the game. Instead, Piranha Games regrouped, took control of the game and license, and started building features the community had been politely requesting.

Since it has become the sole custodian of the free-to-play game, Piranha has implemented a persistent galactic war called Community Warfare. Players choose a faction and invade or defend planets to increase their faction's influence.

Community Warfare is just one of the major elements that Piranha has been implementing since taking over in full. "Having a publisher can sometimes be a compromise of certain things that need to be done for a game vs. things we know the fans are waiting for," said Russ Bullock, president of Piranha Games. It sadly didn't work out for IGP in the long run, but I think the split really allowed everyone at Piranha to go head-down and start rolling out features that were being held up for whatever reason. We're definitely happy with where the game is at today and what we've accomplished over the last 10 or so months, we think the fans are happy too."
