FreeStyle Games Reveals Initial Song List

Activision previously told us that Guitar Hero Live's GHTV mode would feature "hundreds" of songs at launch, but the actual offerings have yet to be detailed outside of the three songs we played during our hands-on time with the game. Now, however, we have a much clearer picture of what we'll be rocking out to later this year.

As FreeStyleGames has indicated, the setlist features a diverse collection of artists spanning several genres. We already knew that the Black Keys' "Gold on the Ceiling," Fall Out Boys' "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark," and The Killers' "When You Were Young" were on the setlist, but we now know that those tracks are joined by a bunch of new tracks from artists we already knew would be appearing, as well as a bunch of previously unannounced artists. You can check out the first wave of tracks coming to Guitar Hero Live and GHTV below.

Activision and FreeStyleGames will be announcing new tracks each week, further bolstering the line-up. Guitar Hero Live is set to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, iOS, and Android later this year. To learn more about the drastic shake-ups to the franchise's gameplay, you can check out our hands-on with the game, or the initial announcement.

Ark: Survival Evolved Lets You Live Out Your Jurassic Park Dreams (And Nightmares)

Gaming has given us all sorts of experiences, but there is something magical about facing off against a tyrannosaurus rex with only spears and your wits. Ark: Survival Evolved is offering that kind of experience, along with dinosaur taming and riding, crafting, and a brutal environment to survive.

The pitch for Ark sounds like a twist on Bohemia Interactive’s DayZ. You wake up naked and afraid on an island, and you’ll need to find clothing, food, and shelter to survive. Oh, and then there’s that little dinosaur problem we mentioned.

about X hours ago from

Capcom takes us on a gameplay tour of Vergil's sword-swinging move set from Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition.

Dante's brother Vergil made his playable debut in Devil May Cry 3, and Capcom is updating the fierce yet disciplined warrior for his return in the special HD update of Devil May Cry 4. Vergil returns with many of his slicing and dicing capabilities from DMC 3, along with a new sword throw attack that allows him to teleport long distances towards enemies as in Ninja Theory's DmC. One exciting new feature for Vergil is the concentration gauge, which allows patient and nimble players with increased attack range and power. 

Watch the gameplay walkthrough below, hosted by Capcom's Greg Moor. Super Replay fans may recognize Greg from our entire playthrough of Mega Man Legends 2.
