See the Guardians of the Galaxy – Episode 3: More Than a Feeling trailer before it slips away

Telltale Games previously announced the next episode from their Guardians of the Galaxy series would be known as Episode 3: More Than a Feeling, but now they’ve unveiled a new trailer for the further adventures of the titular quintet:

After tracing the origin of the Eternity Forge to a mysterious temple, the Guardians encounter an eccentric being who might hold the key to unlocking the relic’s true power. But with Gamora and Nebula busy wrestling with the past and Hala still bent on reclaiming the Forge by any means necessary, it falls to Star-Lord to make a crucial decision that could change the fate of the galaxy — and the Guardians — forever.

Guardians of the Galaxy – Episode 3: More Than a Feeling will be available to download for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices on August 22.

Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite’s “Full Story Trailer” promises a colorful and chaotic crossover

With a week to go before Gamescom opens its door in Germany, Capcom has released the “Full Story Trailer” for Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite. With appearances from Iron Man, Captain America, Ghost Rider, Mega Man, and many others, it looks like fans will get to experience a colorful and chaotic crossover next month:

Ultron Sigma has obtained two Infinity Stones and fused the Marvel and Capcom universes. Jedah has conspired with other villains to create a ravenous Symbiote beast. Can our heroes trust Thanos to lead them to the remaining Infinity Stones and beat back these threats? The clock is ticking, and all reality is at stake.

Capcom is taking Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite on a whirlwind tour before its launch, and the fighter will be playable at Gamescom (August 22-26), GameStop Expo (August 27), Toronto Fan Expo (August 31-September 3), PAX West (September 1-4), and upcoming PlayStation Road to Greatness events.

Microsoft delays launch of Crackdown 3 to Spring 2018

Earlier this week, Volition released their futuristic story of high-flying secret agents, Agents of Mayhem, for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Since its announcement during E3 2014, Microsoft has been hard at work on a similar take on the genre, Crackdown 3. Sadly, it looks like Crackdown 3 won’t join Agents of Mayhem on store shelves this Fall as originally planned.

In a statement to Polygon, the consolemaker has confirmed that Crackdown 3 will now be released in Spring 2018:

“We’re very excited about Crackdown 3, and so are many fans, and so it’s a difficult call to move the release date,” [Shannon Loftis, the General Manager of Microsoft Studios Publishing] said in an email interview with Polygon. “However, we want to make sure to deliver the right game, with the right quality, and at the right time. Crackdown 3 is a hugely ambitious game and we want to ensure we deliver the right experiences all the way through every part of the game, whether that’s campaign, co-op multiplayer or our competitive multiplayer mode, Wrecking Zone. Getting the balance right between the three modes is important, and we are going to take the extra development time to ensure that. Gamers can expect Crackdown 3 in Spring of 2018.”

In addition to a desire to deliver the best game possible, Loftis specifically said that Crackdown 3’s visuals needed further work, so players could “feel completely immersed” in the game’s world:

“What we showed at E3 was a preview of the game, and is a great indicator of the level of mayhem and vertical platforming action you can expect from Crackdown 3,” Loftis said. “Among other items, we are taking the extra time to focus on the visual polish so gamers can feel completely immersed in a living world. We want them to really feel the larger-than life enemies as they’re exploring the expansive open world, combatting crime and collecting orbs.”

Crackdown 3 is currently in development for the PC and Xbox One, and we’ll keep you posted on its progress as we move throughout the year and into 2018.

NetherRealm will unveil Injustice 2’s Fighter Pack 2 at Gamescom 2017

NetherRealm Studios launched Injustice 2 for the PS4 and Xbox One a few months ago, and the developer has already added three new characters to the game’s roster as part of the Fighter Pack 1 add-on.

Six more characters will be added to Injustice 2 through future downloadable add-ons, and fans will get their first look at the next three during this month’s Gamescom expo. The characters planned for Fighter Pack 2 (which will be released roughly one-per-month this Fall) will be unveiled during a special “Celebrity Charity Competition” on August 23 at 5:00 PM (Eastern Time).

DJs Steve Aoki and Don Diablo will battle it out in the fighting game in a best-of-five series, and fans in attendance at Gamescom will be able to grab a ringside seat in Hall 9. If you can’t make it to Cologne, Germany, the matchup will also be livestreamed on NetherRealm’s Twitch channel.

The “Celebrity Charity Competition” will support the Aoki Foundation, a charitable group founded by Steve Aoki that supports advances in brain science, as well as disaster relief, developmental disabilities, and animal rights.

Xbox Store Today: Agents of Mayhem, Conan Exiles, Sonic Mania, more

The future and the past collide in today’s Xbox Games Store update with three new games for the Xbox One…

First up is Volition’s Agents of Mayhem, an open world parody of the superhero boom. Players will protect the city of Seoul and do battle with the evil LEGION. Along the way they’ll crack jokes in Volition’s signature style and playfully mock Saturday morning cartoons as well.

Looking back to the past, yet another developer has taken a crack at a video game based on Conan the Barbarian this week. Funcom’s Conan Exiles is now available through the Xbox Game Preview program, and players will be able to fight for survival in an open world based on Robert E. Howard’s Hyborian Age.

Also available to download today is Sonic Mania, the character’s first 2D side-scroller in over five years. Developed by an outside group of indie developers, Sega’s latest Sonic game includes remixed classic levels and new locales for fans to speed through.

You can learn more about all of these games (and the rest of today’s new releases) after the break.
