New Developer Gameplay Trailer Focues On Online Cooperative Experience

Sea of Thieves, Rare's ambitious open-world online pirate simulator has a new gameplay video, showcasing the developers on a peaceful mission to deliver some treasure. Of course, it isn't long before a gang of scurvy dogs pops in to cause chaos and excitement. The trailer shows off many of the game's unique features, including playing sea shanties on old-timey pirate instruments, plugging leaks made by cannonballs, digging up buried treasure, and adjusting sails to suit the wind.

Rare is clearly placing a broad emphasis on teamwork and a lighthearted tone of whimsy and discovery; while it may prove to be possible, it would likely be a significant hassle for a single player to control an entire pirate ship all by themselves, especially with the myriad dangers afoot in Sea of Thieves' sandbox.

See Who The Fire Emblem Heroes Are In Two New Trailers

The recently announced Fire Emblem: Heroes brings the series to mobile for the first time. Rather than focus on creating a new world and characters to dig into, Heroes works as a crossover game, bringing together heroes from across several different games in the series.

To showcase which heroes fans will be able to control (and how obscure developer Intelligent Systems is willing to get with its character picks), Nintendo has dropped two new trailers introducing us to the crossover cast. The cast is currently loaded with characters from last year's Fire Emblem: Fates, but also includes characters from games not yet released in the West. You can watch both trailers below.

Hands-on With Single-Player And Multiplayer Modes

Hands-on With Single-Player And Multiplayer Modes

With news that For Honor's closed beta has begun, we decided to upload our preview of the game from the last issue (#286), which covers both single-player and multiplayer content.

Ubisoft’s melee-centered action game For Honor has shared the spotlight over the past couple of years as one of the publisher’s more intriguing emerging properties alongside the likes of Steep. The game takes place in a fantastical world where vikings, samurai, and medieval knights all happen to occupy the same continent, which sounds like a war historian’s dream come true. I recently spent a few hours with its single-player and multiplayer modes to see how the game is shaping up before its release.

Ubisoft has kept a tight lid on the single-player campaign since the game’s announcement, trickling out small details and eventually revealing you play as all three factions. A brief trailer I watched before my demonstration explained the set-up: an unnamed, powerful female knight wants to usher in a great age of war, so she pits the factions against each other, manipulating them into fighting. You play as specific characters in each faction during -this -conspiracy. I played through two levels of the single-player campaign. The first cast me as a viking taking revenge on another group of Scandinavian warriors for pillaging and slaughtering an entire village.
