Trailer Introduces Us To The Berserker Faction

We've been slowly learning more about Piranha Bytes' upcoming action/RPG Elex. The post-apocalyptic science-fantasy game is set to feature deep moral choices and a large cast of original characters from different factions. Today, Piranha Bytes released a trailer showing off its newest faction, The Berserkers.

The Berserkers have a way to bring the world back to life by using their "world hearts," which are massive plants that can revitalize an area. They travel the world, looking for locations to plant them. With this mana-based approach, they refuse to use any kind of technology, which means you see them using swords, crossbows, axes, and magic instead of plasma rifles, shotguns, and flamethrowers like other factions.

You can learn more about the Berserkers and Elex below.

Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days is a cooperative top-down shooter with a time-bending twist. While that description might not mean much to you now, developer Big Star Games has released the first extended look at gameplay.

True to the name, Bloody Days is not holding back on the violence and gore if the trailer is any indication. The trailer shows off the time-rewind mechanics, as well as the level of violence you should expect going into this co-op top-down shooter.

New Video Provides A Behind-The-Scenes Look At The Surge

Focus Home Interactive has peeled back the curtain on its upcoming sci-fi game The Surge, which shows how developer Deck13 has created its so-called "Dark Souls in space." The clip has a lot of behind-the-scenes footage and info, including how you mo-cap an exosuit that doesn't technically exist.

The solution, as it turns out, involves arm-extenders, weights, and a patient mo-cap performer. Take a look at the clip below to see the game in action, and also get plenty of shots of enemies getting torn apart and repurposed.

Latest Trailers Reveal Joker, Multiverse Mode

Latest Trailers Reveal Joker, Multiverse Mode

This week brings us two Injustice trailers, one showing off a new character everyone's been dying to see, and another showing off a mode we've been curious to learn more about.

The first trailer reveals the Joker, who looks quite different this time around. Rather than take cues from the look he had in Batman: The Animated Series, Injustice 2's iteration of the character looks more like Jared Leto's take on the character in the recent Suicide Squad film. Still, he looks like a properly sadistic and fun character. The move where the fake "BANG!" flag that pops out of his gun turns into a real bullet is pretty clever.

I recently had the chance to play Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite with Capcom producer Mike Evans and associate producer Peter Rosas. After getting a quick overview of some of the game’s features, I asked Capcom a bunch of nerdy questions about which tricks from previous titles carry over, what the game as whole is, and how older characters have evolved in the six years between Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 and Infinite.

The Basics
