The Occupation Releases On October 9 In Both Digital And Physical Versions

The Occupation, a time-based investigative thriller from White Paper Games, is releasing on October 9 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

After a bombing has shaken Britain and given the government authority to strip away civil rights from the citizenry, you play a journalist tasked with figuring out what happened and talking to the government agents ready to push a yoke on the populace. You can politely sit there and accept their propaganda or walk around and discover the truth for yourself. Events play out in real time, so whatever you're doing, you're using that time not doing something else.

Playing The Occupation was one of our highlights of Day of the Devs last year.

Six Gameplay Tools That Could Make A Difference For FIFA 19

Six Gameplay Tools That Could Make A Difference For FIFA 19

The FIFA series has its licenses and modes fairly well covered, from the re-acquired Champions League to the dominance of Ultimate Team. The franchise's gameplay component has been improving this generation, but it still needs some further refinement. FIFA 19 is giving players a few new gameplay tools to help open up its possibilities.

Reflexive Touches Not every pass you're going to get is going to be perfect, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to corral it or adapt to the situation. The latest version of the game I played had situations where players might try to bring in an errant pass with their trailing foot or even shoot from a less-than-ideal body position. The flip side of this is that your accuracy might be off and the odds not great, but it at least gives you a chance, whereas in other years you'd have to suffer through a longer animation.

A New Season Begins In Madden 19's The Longshot: Homecoming Story Mode

A New Season Begins In Madden 19's The Longshot: Homecoming Story Mode

Last year's Longshot story mode was a cool addition to the Madden franchise, but while I was endeared to the game's characters and the performances by the voice actors, it wasn't as fun to play through the football moments themselves. Madden 19 is attempting to change that with more "regular" football sequences while still exploring the characters we've come to know and love as well as some new ones, like the GM played by Rob Schneider.

I played through the first hour or so of the mode, and you can see not only the game's first fifteen minutes, which sets up where Devin and Colt are now, but also where the story goes from there.

The story picks up more or less where we left it in the last game: Devin is trying to make his way into the NFL, with playcalling verbiage still not his strong suit, and Colt is kicking around back in Mathis, trying to draft off of whatever Longshot fame – be it from the show or the song – he can grab onto.

Meet The Cast Of Dangaronpa Creator's Survival RPG, Zanki Zero

Meet The Cast Of Dangaronpa Creator's Survival RPG, Zanki Zero

We first took note of Zanki Zero when it was announced earlier this year with a flashy trailer and a strong pedigree at GDC. The new game from the Danganronpa producer and director takes the deadly trial visual novel and uses its personality to expand into a different kind of genre.

The world has ended and clones living on an island have thirteen day cycles to grow up and grow old and die until they eventually overcome their genetics to live full lives, setting the premise for the game. Considering you'll probably be spending a lot of time with these characters, it makes sense to get to know them, which this character trailer does in style.

Each character has young, adult, and old variations with seemingly different takes on their foundational personalities. We'll likely get more about the cast of characters, and the weird environment and circumstances they find themselves in, as get closer to the game's Spring 2019 release.

Raiders of the Broken Planet, an online shooter from Metroid: Samus Returns developer MercurySteam, launched last year to some interest. The campaign-based multiplayer shooter saw new released last September with three campaigns split up for $10 each, but it appears that the pricing model hasn't worked out. The game is being relaunched as a free-to-play title under the new name of Spacelords.

“When we launched Raiders September last year, we hoped its low price point of 9.99 per campaign would open it up to a large number of users, but it didn’t work as we planned” said Spacelords' director Enric Álvarez. 

The main thrust of the relaunch is to expand the world of Raiders of the Broken Planet beyond, well, the raiders. MercurySteam wants to incorporate the game's antagonists and new human factions to expand the options for players. The relaunch is also bringing a new character to the mix, Valeria, completely free.

New Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Video Gives Us An In-Depth Look At Paititi

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is only a few months away, so Square Enix is giving players the longest look at the game yet with a new video showcasing the Paititi area.

Paititi contains a hub for Lara to explore and interact with the various indigenous people to take on new side quests, similar to 2015's Rise of the Tomb Raider. Lara can also investigate nooks and crannies to find hidden secrets and challenge tombs along the way. Check out the video below.

Paititi is apparently the largest hub in the Tomb Raider series, with Square Enix saying that the area has hours of content on its own. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the first game in the series to be developed by Eidos Montreal and will release on September 14 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
