Mike Bithell, creator of Thomas Was Alone, recently tweeted out a handful of new screens from his upcoming game, Volume.

You can check out the screens in the gallery below. Bithell has been slowly teasing out details about the game and its story. It's a stealth game taking inspiration from Metal Gear Solid that tells a futuristic Robin Hood tale.
Xenoverse, Dragon Ball's first current-gen video game, has a new character that did not appear in the show, and a collection of new screes shows he is a Saiyan.
Teased at E3, and shown a little bit more recently, this new character did not appear in the anime or mangas, but his clothing and accessories hint at common elements from the show. We don't know his name, but today we learn that not only is he a Saiyan, but he is a powerful one. In the announcement revealing the new character's planetary origins, Bandai Namco writes, "After all these years, have we finally found another survivor to Planet Vegeta’s destruction? This question remains unanswered…"
You can check out more screens from the game in the gallery below which show the new character transforming, interacting and fighting with familiar Dragon Ball Z characters, and talking to Yamcha on the streets of a futuristic city. Will you be able to walk around an open city and explore? That's what some of these images seem to be teasing.
We’ve had the opportunity to preview first-person spellweaving action title Lichdom: Battlemage a couple of times, and soon you may have your chance, too. The title, which is now in Early Access Alpha is heading into Early Access Beta next week.
As the title gets closer to its August 26 PC release, the price is steadily going up. Right now, you can get it for 40 percent off the $39.99 full price. Come July 21, that will increase to $29.99. On July 22, the game goes into paid beta.
The next update brings a host of new features, including New Game Plus, with new objectives, loot, and spells. New sigil powers have been added, that give players access to flame walls, arc lightning, and more.
Robot Entertainment’s action-heavy MOBA, Orcs Must Die Unchained, is headed for a major update next week. Players in the closed beta can look forward to a number of new features starting on July 22.
Two new Unchained heroes will be added to the fray. Sir Winston is a traitor to The Order and now fights on the side of evil. The Kobold King is supposedly democratically elected, but we’re not sure we believe him. Four new hero skins will also be up for grabs, with two going to the new characters, and the other two fleshing out Midnight and Stinkeye’s wardrobes.
Two heroes will be tweaked with new damage types. The War Mage will now deal lightning damage. Hogarth now hits with ice elemental damage.
In a new trailer, FIFA 15 developer EA Canada shows its player emotion system and how it adds more excitement to the game.
The emotion system isn't tied to player form, but is a graphical manifestation of players' reactions to what's going on in the game, whether that's conceding an early goal or reacting to a bad call.

Defense is a big focus for Madden 15, and a new trailer details improvements in areas such as man/zone coverage, coverage disguises, and head tracking.
When you're in the pocket, you better be making the correct read. Developer EA Tiburon has reworked the man and zone coverages of the game's A.I. defenses, and they'll even disguise their coverages. Skills such as individual defender's play recognition and ability to stay with receivers as they go in and out of cuts should stand out.
This sounds like a big leap forward for the franchises's defenses, but it's also a tall order to pull off. Given that these A.I. improvements apply to individual players, I'm curious how over/underpowered some players will feel and how much differentiation there is between good/bad ones. Furthermore, I welcome more aggressive defenders, and hope that the head tracking is correct so guys don't seem omnipotent when breaking on the ball.
EA and Visceral are continuing to keep the lines of communications open to fans. Battlefield Hardline is undergoing some changes following the beta last month, and feedback has helped shaped some of the improvements.
In this week’s “Community’s Most Wanted List,” Visceral talks about a number of things that will change the feel and pacing based on your input. Explosives will be toned down a bit, with less frequent uses and more realistic impact.
The HUD, customization screen, and audio are all getting tweaked to improve the delivery of vital information (like the enemy sneaking up behind you). If you happen to favor the Mechanic class, you’ll be happy to know that it will become more versatile by the next time you play Hardline. However, it will likely not be called “Mechanic.” Visceral is currently taking suggestions for a new name.
The evil Emperor Zane is flooding the world of Ancaria with hordes of minions. What’s a rogue to do? Band together with three other heroes and compete to see who can get the most kills, of course.
Keen Game's upcoming action role-playing game releases on August 5, so get some friends together and prepare to retake the kingdom. Sacred 3 will let you combine powers with other champions to cast powerful co-op combat moves, but at the end of each match a score sheet will reveal who really dealt out the most damage. Check out the new trailer below.

Demon Hunters are one of three dynamic factions populating Risen 3’s medieval setting in Deep Silver’s upcoming open-world RPG.
A young warrior soul is stolen, so he sets off to reclaim it while fighting a darkness that is slowing consuming the world. At the beginning of Risen 3: Titan Lords, players will pick an allegiance to one of the game’s three factions. This allegiance will impact the quests, skills, armor, and overall experience in the open-world role-playing game.
The Demon Hunters are a collection of dark knights bound to a ancient pact and equipped with the best weapons and armor at mankind’s disposal. In the game, the Demon Hunters seek to restore the Bay of Iron and the massive citadel to their former glory. Check out some images of these warriors in action below.
