Harmonix Reveals New Gameplay Mechanics And Setlist Details

Harmonix has finally pulled back the curtain and revealed the new gameplay of Rock Band VR.

The virtual reality title will have players using their Rock Band 4 guitars to simulate being on stage and rocking out with a real band. Rather than just copying and pasting the classic Rock Band guitar formula into VR (though that is still an optional mode for old-school players), Harmonix is offering a new way to play, allowing players to utilize different chord shapes to develop their own style, allowing every performance to feel – and sound – unique.

In addition, Harmonix has revealed 21 of the 60 songs which will appear in the game. Many of these have appeared in Rock Band before, either as part of an on-disc setlist ("When You Were Young," "Everlong"), or as part of Rock Band's massive DLC library ("Hangar 18," "Through The Fire And Flames").

Chronos Dev Announces Sci-Fi VR Shooter

The developer behind Game Informer's 2016 Best VR Game, Chronos, has announced a new VR shooter called From Other Suns. The title is scheduled to launch for Oculus Rift and Touch this fall.

The game sets players on a sci-fi adventure in another galaxy, when a major event known as The Collapse happens, trapping half of humanity on the other side of a wormhole with a host of dangerous threats to fight off. During a playthrough, players spend time touring the sector, upgrading their ship, stockpiling weapons, and fighting off enemies. The description also hints at further crew-management mechanics.

If you die in the game, returning with a new life will unveil new challenges. From Other Suns also offers 2-player cooperative multiplayer.

Eddy Gordo Kicks His Way Back Into The Ring

Eddy Gordo has been a fixture of the Tekken series for some time now, so it's not surprising to see that he's coming to Tekken 7. That doesn't make his addition any less exciting, however, as a new gameplay trailer shows off the capoeira expert's flashy moves.

Take a look at the clip below to see Eddy overwhelm his opponent with kick after debilitating kick, as he seeks revenge for the death of his master. It's certainly a more refined approach to combat than you might find in, say, a bear.

Game director Jason Fader told Polygon, “Unity is not a great engine to use if you want to make an FPS on console.” The footage below represents an early version of the game which is still subject to change, but it shows off some impressive visuals for the classic shooter.

Bulletstorm Remaster Shows Its Serious Side With New Story Trailer

Six years ago, People Can Fly unleashed Bulletstorm on the world, a gonzo shooter that gave players a mayhem-filled moveset and the freedom to lay waste to enemies in over-the-top ways. The story may have gotten lost in the shuffle, but it was surprisingly OK. With the upcoming remaster, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, publisher Gearbox wants to remind you about that story, and they're doing it in a surprisingly humorless trailer.

Take a look at the clip below to see Grayson Hunt navigate a sci-fi conspiracy, as well as a few shots of some of the game's bigger set pieces. And while you're watching it, keep in mind that this is still the game that rewards you for shooting crotches, kicking bad guys into spike traps, and turning crowds of enemies into clouds of red goo.
