Hack Into The Horror Of A New Trailer For Cyberpunk Title Observer

The future is indeed a scary place. Observer, which takes place in the definite dystopia of Poland 2084, puts you in the shoes of detective Dan Lazarski as he hacks into suspects' minds and invades their fears.

The game's new story trailer sheds a little more light on the game's context as well as Lazarski – played by Rutger Hauer from the original Blade Runner, among other films.

Our own Javy had a 10-minute demo of the title and thought highly of it enough to include it in our list of the best indie games from this year's GDC.

A Video Tour Of The Beta

Today sees the launch of the Destiny 2 beta for everyone who pre-ordered the game on PS4. Xbox One pre-orderers can look forward to diving in tomorrow, and the beta will go completely open this weekend for all console players. 

Andy McNamara and I have both been dedicated players of the original Destiny since its launch in 2014, and after many months of waiting, we sat down today for a first look at the beta. As we show off sections of the story, strike, and competitive action that the beta offers, we also took the time to discuss some of the changes coming to the game, how the game appeals to newcomers and lapsed players, and also the numerous aspects of gameplay that we have yet to learn about for the big sequel. 

Enjoy the video!

It's another "Mayhem Monday" which means it's time for some more news from Volition's Agents of Mayhem. This week, there's a new trailer that introduces us to the Firing Squad, a group described as "morally flexible and occasionally reliable." 

First up is Oni, a former Yakuza assassin who uses a silenced pistol and can weaken enemies with his aura of fear. Next up is a familiar face, Pierce Washington from the Saints Row franchise. He's a wannabe hip-hop star who was recruited to the team after unifying the gangs in Stilwater. His special power allows him to hypnotize enemies into dancing. Finally, we have the Iranian assassin Scheherazade who moves fast and vanishes into thin air before destroying L.E.G.I.O.N. soldiers with her sword and knives.

New Game Mixes Medieval And Magic In Early Access July 26

Blue Isle Studios, the people behind Slender: The Arrival and first-person adventure game Valley have revealed their next project, titled Citadel: Forged With Fire.

The the company's past efforts haven't met with mixed acclaim, Citadel has a few interesting hooks. At a glance, it looks quite a bit like an Elder Scrolls game, with the first-person exploration and RPG hooks of that series. However, Citadel lets you tame monsters instead of fighting them, use a broom to fly around the world, and construct (and destroy) castles of opposing houses online.

The game will be available on Steam through Early Access on July 26, though the game is also in development for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. You can watch the game's reveal trailer below.

New Trailer Shows Off The Game's Silly Tone

A year and a half ago, Retro City Rampage creator Brian Provinciano announced that his new game would be called Shakedown: Hawaii, and today it finally got a full reveal trailer.

Shakedown: Hawaii is another open-world crime game played from an isometric perspective, but instead of playing as a lowly thug, you play as an aging businessman looking to get into white-collar crime. The new trailer shows off the game's silly tone and the business acquisition metagame. Throughout the game you go on missions with classic driving and shooting action, and then return home to acquire new businesses and find ways to increase your profit margins, such as putting drywall in your unregulated testosterone pills. You can check out the trailer below.
