New Trailer Introduces Us To The Firing Squad

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.

Ex-BioShock Developers Reveal First-Person Roguelite

Uppercut Games, a studio made up of ex-BioShock developers that banded together to make titles like Epoch and Submerged, recently revealed their new project. City of Brass is a first-person roguelite that thematically resembles games like Prince of Persia. 

You make your way through a procedurally-generated, Arabian Nights-themed area and search for treasure, while using your scimitar and whip against the undead. Your whip can also be used to grapple onto buildings and other specific points so you can swing across rooftops, or be used to disarm enemies in battle. As you progress, you will encounter deadly traps and pitfall. Failure results in permadeath.
