New Screens Drop For The MMO Shooter

Ubisoft has been letting loose a breadth of new screens today and the Division has joined their ranks. Check out the image gallery below the story to see more of the melancholic world.

The Division is an MMO/third-person shooter hybrid that puts you in the boots of a soldier who's a part of The Division, a team working to hold up the ruins of the United States. As the world crumples around disease, famine, and war, it's up to you to keep it together.

You can play it on your PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC sometime in 2015. E3 also brought a wealth of information about The Division. Be sure to watch the gameplay demo and read our impressions.

Fans Take Center Stage In New NHL 15 Trailer

With generic arenas and generally passive crowds, previous NHL efforts never captured the vigor and enthusiasm of hockey fans. NHL 15 changes that.

In a new trailer released at Gamescom, you can see just how far developer EA Canada is going to capturing the pageantry of the NHL, with authentic arenas, team superfans, and a full array of personnel doing their jobs around the arena. Ushers, photographers, cameramen, and concessions attendants are all present. Check out the improvements yourself in this trailer:

Another Wave Of Skylanders Toys Is On The Way

about X hours ago from

Good luck keeping tabs on all of the playable character types in Skylanders: Trap Team. Along with the standard assortment of characters, the new playable villains, the larger-sized Trap Masters, and all of the previously released figure types, Toys for Bob today announced that a new Skylanders Minis action figure will also be controllable in Trap Team.

Some of these miniaturized characters may look familiar to you. They were first issued as "Sidekick" pets that would follow your character into battle. They weren't released as retail items, and were only obtainable through promotions, such as Frito-Lay's giveaway. Come this fall, you'll have the chance to purchase them. The first series of Skylanders Minis consists of 16 characters, which will be sold in packs of two for $13.99. These characters function just like their normal-sized counterparts, and have their own upgrade paths and power sets.

The Mysterious Character Is A Customizable Avatar

The Mysterious Character Is A Customizable Avatar

It turns out the mysterious Dragon Ball Xenoverse character that Bandai Namco has been teasing since E3 is whoever you want them to be.

Male, female, Earthling, Majin, and Namekian – the character that we've been wondering about for months is completely customizable from race to accessories, to clothing. Since his (now its) unveiling, we were lead to believe the character was created for Xenoverse to be part of the Dragon Ball Z canon. It's technically not untrue, but it's definitely not what we were expecting (though we did have our assumptions). Now we need to learn more about the futuristic city that has been teased alongside the character. You can check out more of the customization options in the gallery below.

For more on Dragon Ball Xenoverse, head here and here. Dragon Ball Xenoverse is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. You can check out our E3 2014 coverage of the game here and watch an episode of Did You Know Gaming on Dragon Ball Z games by hitting the link.

A Surreal Multiplayer Crafting Simulator

A Surreal Multiplayer Crafting Simulator

Yesterday Q-Games announced The Tomorrow Children, but we didn’t get a great sense for what the game was about. During a demo at Gamescom we got an extended look at the game, but the game has such a unique concept that we wouldn’t say we understand it.

Q-Games described The Tomorrow Children as a network-based game where everyone in the world works to build a town at the same time. Set in a divergent future after a failed Russian science experiment breaks reality and threatens to destroy the universe, players control one of a number of “projected clones” who mine “islands” across a horizontal white expanse that seems to stretch on forever.

These islands contain resources that players will need to collect to build out their town further. We watched as our clone used as shovel and pickaxe to dig into the side of a red mountain that was shaped like a face. Another tool, called an orb, was used to bore a hole directly through the side of the mountain, creating an instant tunnel. A jetpack will help players navigate up to hard-to-reach spots, while torches can be used to light up dark environments.

One Merciless Alien, Countless Bloody Deaths

about X hours ago from

Creative Assembly had its work cut out for it with Alien: Isolation. Not only is it extremely challenging to transpose a 1979 horror film to the interactive medium, but the studio and publisher Sega have to win back fans turned off by Gearbox's 2013 Colonial Marines fumble.

I spent five hours and an uncountable number of deaths with Alien: Isolation, and while the title needs the remaining time for polish before the October 7 release, it's in good shape. Our demo begins mid-way through the game as Amanda Ripley needs to find medical attention for an injured comrade.

The Sevastopol is a station located in deep space that has fallen into disrepair and is desperately low on supplies. A ship that docked recently unleashed the Xenomorph menace, and Amanda must sneak through the corridors and solve puzzles while avoiding the predator.

It incorporates a hacking minigame, which fits within the retro aesthetic. When encountering a console or door that needs a technological nudge, you'll tune your portable device and then match pieces of a pattern against what's displayed.
