MercurySteam Reveals Release Date, Pricing, New CG Trailer

We last saw MercurySteam's game Raiders of the Broken Planet at E3 a few months back, and we were impressed enough by what we saw to put it on our list of best indie games at the show. Today, the studio has revealed a slew of details about the third-person action shooter, including the release date, pricing, and a CG Gamescom trailer.

The game will be arriving in two pieces on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC starting Sept. 22. The prologue is available at no cost, and it includes two missions split across four stages, multiple characters, and complete access to single and multiplayer game modes. 

If you like what you see, you can download the game's first campaign, called Alien Myths. It's priced at $9.99, and it includes additional story campaign, missions, and characters.

Visual Concepts Outlines MyTeam Changes Coming To NBA 2K18

We've heard all about how NBA 2K18 evolves, MyGM mode, the gameplay enhancements, and the inclusion of all-time teams for each NBA franchise. Now Visual Concepts is turning the information hose on the popular card collecting mode MyTeam.

In an in-depth blog post, associate producer Peter Cornforth revealed that the long-requested draft mode (similar to EA Sports' Draft Champions mode) debuts with NBA 2K18. This pack-driven experience gives you a bundle of random players, and tasks you with trying to build the best possible team for a competition. Using the coaching oriented system proficiency feature, you need to find which players best fit your coach's scheme to get the most out of your makeshift roster. Once your team is drafted, you compete in 5v5 games through four rounds of playoffs. Each round is best of seven, and each time you advance you have to rebuild your roster with a new deck of cards, or spend some of your earned VC to preserve some of your current players.

Our 5 Biggest Takeaways From Playing More Of The Single-Player Modes

With Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite a month away, we still have a few questions about how the final product will come together. How big will the final character roster be? Is the story mode demo (which didn’t exactly wow us) be indicative of the final product? What will the other single-player modes look like? 

Capcom recently let us a play a build of Infinite with a longer look at Story mode, as well as access to its Mission, Training, and Collection modes (the arcade mode was not available). After spending a few hours tinkering around with the entire 30-character roster and seeing more of the story mode, we have a better idea of what the final product will be.

The story mode still emphasizes plot over charactersCapcom has been selling Infinite’s story mode as a substantial improvement from past entries, and as part of Marvel’s effort to improve the quality of the storytelling in Marvel-branded games as a whole. Though the plot is a little more concrete this time around, the emphasis on plot points in the section we played overshadowed the potential for interesting character moments.

THQ Nordic Bringing Back The Gothic-Horror Adventure Series

THQ Nordic announced today that it's bringing back the Black Mirror adventure-game franchise with an all-new entry. The game, developed by King Art Games, is set for a late November release.

While it shares a name with Charlie Brooker's BBC techno-horror TV series, the Black Mirror games debuted in 2004, seven years before the show. The new entry shifts away from the original games' point-and-click roots, offering direct control of the characters. In addition, players will be able to interact with horrific "vision-like apparitions," according to THQ Nordic.

The trailer below offers a glimpse of the tone that the developers are shooting for, even if it doesn't offer much in the way of context or a shred of gameplay.
