New Trailer Shows Off Female Protagonist

about X hours ago from

Revealed this year at E3, Prey looks to be an early contender for one of the most intriguing games of the coming year. During the E3 2016 reveal trailer, we got a look at Morgan Yu, a man who must face the Typhon threat. In this latest trailer, we're introduced to Morgan Yu yet again, only this time, it's the female version of the same character.

Just as with franchises like Mass Effect, players are able to choose whether the main protagonist is male or female in the upcoming title from Arkane Studios. Bethesda says that this choice will not affect the story or how your character interacts with the world, but rather it comes down to allowing players to define their identity not only through how they play the game, but also who their character is.

You can see the first footage of female Morgan Yu in the trailer below.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is taking the series into space, and Infinity Ward is looking to avoid stalling at liftoff. To help the team prepare for the launch on November 4, Infinity Ward is holding beta weekends for those who pre-order the game.

The first beta weekend kicks off for PlayStation 4 owners on Friday, October 14 at 10 a.m. Pacific, while Xbox One owners will need to wait to join the party until Friday, October 21. During the beta, players will have the opportunity to test out the new combat rig suits that grant you new, futuristic abilities, as well as three or more new multiplayer maps and several game modes that will rotate in and out. Players can also look forward to checking out the new Mission Teams that let you earn team rank by completing missions.

Check out the new trailer below to see the multiplayer in action.

WWE 2K17 Trailer Demystifies The Controls

WWE 2K17 comes out tomorrow. Multiplayer is a big part of the game, and it's likely that at least one person in the group hasn't been keeping pace with the series as much as the rest of the crew. Publisher 2K has released a new video aimed at getting those players up to speed, so they can jump into the action as quickly as possible.

The video covers everything from basic in-ring movement to a pretty in-depth look at both of the game's different submission-move options. If you have a friend who follows the WWE but not the games, and they're going to be playing with you in the near future, you may want to save yourself a little aggravation and point them toward this video.

Announcement Trailer Revealed For Lone Echo

Announcement Trailer Revealed For Lone Echo

At this year's Oculus Connect 3, fellow editor Javy Gwaltney got a chance to check out the upcoming Oculus Rift game Lone Echo, which thoroughly impressed him. Taking place in outer space, you experience zero-g first hand with the Oculus Touch controllers.

As an astronaut, you maneuver around the world by grabbing hold of walls or any surface nearby to pull you towards your destination. In the demo we played at Oculus Connect 3, the game functioned like soccer in space, giving both an Ender's Game and Tron-like vibe as two teams take control of robots that attempt to throw discs into an opponent's goal.

Polybius Is A PlayStation VR Exclusive

about X hours ago from

This one needs a bit of context. Polybius was originally, allegedly an arcade game back in the 1980s. I say "allegedly" because it's hard to verify the arcade cabinet's existence. If the machine was real, it apparently induced nausea and headaches in anyone who played it. It's an urban legend.

While that is still the case, we will soon have to distinguish between Polybius the legend and Polybius the real-life game. Jeff Minter, known for his work on making several Tempest-like games including Space Giraffe and TxK, is making a game he claims is based on his experience playing a Polybius cabinet. On the European PlayStation blog, Minter tells his story of playing the original: "My heart was racing and I felt a really weird combination of exhilaration mixed with a deep-seated anxiety whose origin I couldn’t identify. It felt like waking unexpectedly from a dream and for the first few seconds I was thoroughly confused. It took me a while to remember that I was really in Basingstoke, and why."

Watch This Epic Cinematic Lightsaber Battle In The Trailer For Knights Of The Eternal Throne

BioWare and LucasFilm provided a look today into the backstory for the upcoming expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic, called Knights of the Eternal Throne, with an action-packed cinematic trailer.

"Trailer" doesn't really do it justice - for all intents and purposes, it's a short film about a mother and her young daughter, who becomes a powerful force user. There's a great six-versus-one lightsaber battle, plus some impressive-looking new force powers on display in the video, titled "Betrayed," which you can check out below.

Knights of the Eternal Throne is available Dec. 2, and is free to The Old Republic subscribers. If you're wondering whether now's the time to get into SWTOR, BioWare has sweetened the pot by offering the bounty hunter Shae Vizla as a companion for players who subscribe before Oct. 25. Still on the fence? Then you might want to check out Matt Miller's advice on whether The Old Republic is the right game for you.

Tim Schafer And Team Offer A Glimpse At The Upcoming Platformer

The anticipated Psychonauts 2 won't be releasing for some time yet, but in the meantime, Tim Schafer and crew at Double Fine have unveiled gameplay from an early prototype of the game.

In the video below, we see Tim Schafer and lead designer Zak McClendon give us a tour of a revamped and gorgeous-looking Whispering Rock, which was the camp setting from the original. However, everything seen here is proof-of-concept and only a prototype. The two stress in the video that what is seen here won't be in the final game. Nonetheless, we still get to see Raz do some rad telekinesis acrobatics, and a cool new move called the Balloon Glide.
