Game Awards 2016 Trailer: Dauntless

Another new trailer shown during this year’s Game Awards was for Dauntless, a co-op RPG title coming to the PC in 2017. Not much is known about Dauntless, but we know its in development at Phoenix Labs and that it’ll be free-to-play. However, we also have the description below the YouTube video (“Discover a shattered world, forge powerful weapons, and hunt the ferocious behemoths threatening our survival.”) and a little more information found at PlayDauntless.com

More on Dauntless as it becomes available. But in the meantime, enjoy the announcement trailer.

Game Awards 2016 Teaser: Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy

The term “teaser” couldn’t be any more apropos for this Game Awards trailer. The latest episodic series from Telltale Games is none other than Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series. There wasn’t a whole lot to show off in this trailer. It simply showed Star Lord’s iconic Walkman floating in space. No release window was given, but the five-part title is coming to mobile devices, consoles, and PC in 2017.

More on Guardians of the Galaxy as it develops.

Game Awards 2016 Trailer: Death Stranding

The 2016 Game Awards kicked off with a belated round of applause for Hideo Kojima, who was unable to attend last year’s event due to his falling out with Konami. Geoff Keighley introduced Mr. Kojima on stage to present him with the Industry Icon Award, and after delivering his acceptance speech, the developer showed off the next trailer for his highly-anticipated title, Death Stranding.

This trailer gave us a better idea of the game’s world. There is literally an army of the undead causing destruction… skeletons decked out in army fatigues patrol a dystopian world. One man (who resembles director Guillermo Del Toro) appears to be hiding from the army, and tries to take refuge in a viaduct. He uses an embryo in a jar, possibly to keep the evil army at bay, when a platoon of skeletons approach, being led by a living person (played by Mads Mikkelsen).

The trailer raises more questions than it answers, but it looks amazing. Keighley also confirmed that the trailer is running in 4K, realtime, on a PS4 Pro. No release date was given, but knowing Kojima’s talent, it’ll probably be worth the wait.

Shakedown Hawaii will be playable at PS Experience 2016… and here’s a new trailer

Vblank Entertainment initially debuted Shakedown Hawaii, their 16-bit sequel to Retro City Rampage, ahead of last year’s PlayStation Experience. Earlier this week, the developer revealed that the open world game, which will also be available for the PC (via Steam) and at least one Nintendo platform, will make a return engagement at this year’s PlayStation Experience.

In addition to confirming that attendees of Sony’s annual showcase will get to try out Shakedown Hawaii this weekend, Vblank also announced a 2017 release date for the game and unveiled a brand new trailer, which is embedded above.

First Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment trailer will premiere tonight during The Game Awards

shovelknightspecteroftorment-header

Host Geoff Keighley has promised plenty of surprises for this year’s Game Awards, but another eager developer has spilled the beans on a World Premiere trailer we’ll get a peak at tonight. In a short tweet, Yacht Club Games confirmed they’ll debut a new trailer for their next project during the show:

While it’s possible that Yacht Club will unveil something brand new, the pun-loving developers are most likely referring to Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment with that “reap what we show” line. Specter of Torment will be the second (of three) planned expansions for Shovel Knight, and it’s currently on track for a Spring 2017 launch on the 3DS, PC, PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U, and Xbox One.

The 2016 Game Awards will be held tonight at 8:30 PM (Eastern Time), and you can watch the show at TheGameAwards.com.

Red Dead Redemption will be added to PlayStation Now next week

reddead-header

It’s been a “Good” year for fans of Red Dead Redemption. The wildly popular western was originally released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2010, and Rockstar announced that a sequel, Red Dead Redemption 2, will be available next year. But the publisher has also kept the original in the spotlight thanks to its addition to the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility list in July, and its pending launch on Sony’s PlayStation Now service.

According to Rockstar, Red Dead Redemption (and its zombie-themed expansion, Undead Nightmare) will be available to stream through the PlayStation Now service on the PS4 and PC beginning on December 6. Believe it or not, but this will be the first time that PC players will have the chance to try out Red Dead Redemption.

Sony’s PlayStation Now service currently offers more than 450 titles to stream on the PS4 and PC. Subscription plans start at $19.99 (for one month) and discounts are available when signing up for a multi-month subscription.

Lego Worlds will be available for PC, PS4, Xbox One on February 21

Lego Worlds is currently available in Early Access for the PC, but WB Games recently announced that the full version of the game will launch on February 21, 2017.

Console players will be happy to learn the open world adventure game will also be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on the same day. In addition to its console debut, a special Agents DLC Pack (featuring new characters, vehicles, weapons, and more from the Agents line) will be available exclusively on the PS4 for a limited time.

In Lego Worlds, players uncover hidden treasures in environments that range from fun to the fantastical, where worlds come to life with a dizzying variety of vehicles and creatures – from cowboys riding giraffes to vampires scaring Yetis, to steamrollers, racing cars, and colossal digging machines. Gamers can embark on a quest to become a Master Builder by helping other Lego characters along the way – find a sword for a king, protect a farmer from a zombie invasion, or build a home for a caveman.

Environments and creations are brought to life in any way fans can imagine, either by building brick by brick, placing down enormous pre-built Lego structures, or by using wondrous tools that let you paint and shape the landscape. Lego Worlds’ online multiplayer functionality allows players to explore each other’s worlds together, create together, and engage in cooperative and competitive play experiences that players can build themselves.

Lego Worlds is in development at TT Games, and the developer’s Jonathan Smith has promised that players will have “the freedom to create anything imaginable” in the game. A new trailer showcasing the many ways players can experience Lego Worlds has been embedded above.

Motiga and Perfect World have announced that an Open Beta for their free-to-play MOBA, Gigantic, will begin on December 8 for Xbox One and Windows 10 players.

Gigantic is a 5v5 game where players attack their opponent’s massive Guardian while attempting to defend their own. The Open Beta will offer cross-platform play between Xbox One and Windows 10 players, as well as three maps (“Siren’s Stand,” “Ghost Reef,” and “Sanctum Falls”) and a weekly rotation of six heroes (out of 16).

“With Gigantic, we are trying to create an entirely new competitive experience. Throughout development, Gigantic has gotten attention for its unique art style, whimsical setting and fast-paced gameplay, but our goal has always been something more,” said James Phinney, the Vice President of Product Development at Motiga. “We’ve sought to build a game full of intense moments and meaningful strategic choices, where there are many paths to victory and it’s always possible to come back and win.”

One final Closed Beta test will be held this weekend, and participants can join a match from Thursday, December 1 at 12:00 PM (Eastern Time) through Monday, December 5 at 3:00 AM (Eastern Time).

Users of Perfect World’s Arc Games platform will be able to join the Open Beta at a “to-be determined date” sometime after December 8.
