It ain’t Leave It To Beaver… the latest Wolfenstein II trailer introduces us to Trust In Brother

Bethesda is back with another twisted bit of 1960s Americana in the latest trailer for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Leave It To Beaver never made it onto the airwaves in the game’s Nazi-occupied United States, but Trust In Brother certainly has the same sense of wholesome family fun:

“I’m still going to have to inform on you!” Sometimes life isn’t easy when you’re Ronnie and you’re always getting caught doing FUN (Following Unlawful Nature) things in Trust In Brother – a heartwarming comedy show for the whole family. Giggle your hearts out as the gluttonous Ronnie gorges on milk chocolate bars. Chuckle until your belt buckles burst as Ronnie dances to degenerate music that threatens to send him into a spiral of drugs, crime, and political deviance. But whenever Ronnie stumbles, his big brother Dale will always be there to catch him – and inform on him to the authorities! With a resounding endorsement from our Beloved Fuhrer himself, you’re in for eine großartige Zeit – a hoot of a time! Trust in Brother is filmed before a live studio audience.

And in case you missed them, don’t forget to check out the earlier trailers featuring snippets of Wolfenstein II’s in-universe television programs, including the German… Or Else! game show and the Lassie parody Liesel.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 27.

Inversus Deluxe is also coming to the Switch this Fall

Earlier this year, Hypersect announced that Inversus would make its way to the Xbox One sometime this year. That’s still the plan, but today, the developer confirmed the black-and-white shooter will also make its way to the Nintendo Switch.

The Xbox One and Switch launch will be retitled Inversus Deluxe, and Hypersect plans to add a wide variety of new features to the game alongside its new name:

New Features Planned For Inversus Deluxe

  • 12 New Versus Maps and 4 New Arcade Maps create a total of 50 unique maps for players to enjoy.
  • Test your skills in the new Single-Player Versus Mode by facing off against AI Bots that scale in difficulty from beginner to world-class player.
  • The addition of Ranked Online Multiplayer rewards skill in both 1v1 and 2v2 games.
  • New Real-Time Soft Shadows and High Definition Materials add a depth and richness to the screen.
  • With the new Split-Shot Ammo, players can fork bullets and shoot around corners.
  • Equipping new unlockable Motion Trails allow players to show off personality in the arena.

“When I first saw Nintendo Switch, I knew it was the perfect home for Inversus!” said Hypersect’s Ryan Juckett. “The controls map directly onto a single Joy-Con for playing with friends, while the quick game sessions are great for playing on the go.”

If you’re an owner of Inversus for the PC or PS4, don’t worry, the “Deluxe” update will be available as a free download.

CoD: Infinite Warfare’s Absolution DLC Pack is now available to download on PC, Xbox One

The PS4’s month-long exclusivity period for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s Absolution DLC Pack has ended, and the shooter’s latest expansion is now available to download on the PC and Xbox One.

As usual, the Absolution DLC Pack will add four new multiplayer maps and a new Zombies episode to the game. Players who’ve purchased the Season Pass will get free access to this content, and everyone else will be able to purchase it as a standalone download for $14.99.

Here’s what you’ll find in the Absolution DLC Pack:

Multiplayer Maps in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Absolution DLC Pack

  • Bermuda: A shantytown created around the remnants of a crashed ship, Bermuda allows players to duck, dive, and wall ride from the fish market to the lighthouse in this small to medium sized map that’s been water-wasted and sandblasted.
  • Permafrost: Set within the chill of a frozen city skyline, Permafrost lets players stick to the ground and pick their plan of attack in one of three main lanes. They will traverse the map, moving from street side to train station, and hobo village to wrecked theater house in this small, tight-quarters map.
  • Fore: In Fore, the only thing miniature about this large map is the golf courses players will be fighting in. Fore features great visual variety as players swing around the sights and sounds of areas that brandish magical forests, giant creamsicles, and elevated castle walls.
  • Ember: Located near an old town castle, Ember is a remake of Resistance from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 featuring old world aesthetics retrofitted with modern technology. The surroundings include lava, gallows and a torture room, where players will want to stick close to their teammates.

Zombies: Attack of the Radioactive Thing!
The twisted and enigmatic film director Willard Wyler is up to his shenanigans once again, and this time he’s zapped our fearless foursome of heroes into the 1950s with a campy horror experience titled “Attack of the Radioactive Thing!” The plot of this film follows a clumsy government science experiment gone wrong, turning an unsuspecting suburban populace into flesh devouring zombies, while a newly spawned biological menace moves into the ravaged town.

This action-packed chapter comes in the style of the Creature Feature movies of the era, and is headlined by none other than horror movie icon Elvira, played with voice and likeness by Cassandra Peterson. She will help players (hopefully) survive by giving them tips and side quests, all in her unique Elvira style, as they attempt to make it through this science experiment from hell.

Stepping into brand-new roles, our four intrepid cast of characters will become The Scientist, The Rebel, The Soldier, and The School Girl as they battle all-new zombies while sporting classically cool 1950s attire. If you’re hip to that jive, then just try to stay alive in “Attack of the Radioactive Thing!”

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s fourth, and final, DLC Pack should be available to download for the PS4 sometime in September. And PC and Xbox One owners will be able to play it a month later.

Respawn CEO promises “More Titanfall” is coming; Titanfall Assault mobile game set to launch on August 10

Respawn Entertainment has supported Titanfall 2 with a steady slew of new content since its launch last Fall, but CEO Vince Zampella confirmed the developer also has “a few other things” in the works for the franchise.

Zampella recently sat down with GameSpot and said, “We’re working on more Titanfall,” though the executive and his team weren’t ready to announce anything just yet:

GameSpot: Since this was your studio’s debut franchise, it must have been exciting to see it grow and evolve into what it is today, and now releasing with a standalone game for mobile. Since you’re working on another title–a Star Wars game with EA–can you speak to what the franchise has accomplished thus far?

Zampella: We’re very proud of what we have so far. As a new studio, we tried something different and new, and while it worked–maybe not well enough to remove the single-player–we kinda expanded with the follow-up, and we brought in the single-player, which turned out great. We’re working on more Titanfall–we’re not announcing what that is yet, but there’s a few other things in the works–the mobile game, which turned out fantastic and is super fun, the fans love it and allowed us to expand on what we did in the last games. So I’m pretty happy with what the franchise has become.

Respawn is currently hard at work on a new Star Wars game for Electronic Arts, so it may be quite before we get an official announcement for (the still untitled) Titanfall 3. But the developer is also very interested in expanding the Titanfall franchise, and Zampella said the first mobile spinoff, Titanfall Assault, would be available to download on August 10.

Gun Media and Illfonic have sold 1.8 million copies of Friday the 13th: The Game

Though it got off to a bit of a rocky start, Gun Media and Illfonic might need to replace Friday the 13th‘s famous “Ch Ch, Ch, Chhh, Ah, Ah, Ah, Ahhh” audio cue with a nice “Cha-Ching.” Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, the developers revealed that Friday the 13th: The Game has sold 1.8 million copies since its launch in May.

Gun Media’s founder, Wes Keltner, spoke at less about the server issues that have plagued the game since its release, as well as plans for future updates:

“Our number one priority right now is stability and squashing bugs,” Keltner says. “That’s what all of our engineers are focusing on. We’ve also nearly doubled our team size to help with this issue. But our content/art teams are free to work on new content, and that’s what we’ve been doing. Players can expect new maps, characters, Easter eggs and other great updates in the near future. I think fans are really going to enjoy what we have planned, as some of this content comes directly from player feedback/requests, while some others are surprises we’ve had up our sleeves for several months now.”

The developers are also hard at work on a single-player expansion and a physical release for Friday the 13th: The Game, but it’s currently unknown when either will be ready.

Here’s the first official trailer for Telltale’s Batman: The Enemy Within

Telltale Games will return to Gotham City next week, but first, the developer has given us a brand new look at Batman: The Enemy Within.

In this latest chapter, both Bruce Wayne and Batman will be forced into precarious new roles. The Riddler has returned to terrorize Gotham City, but his gruesome puzzles merely foreshadow an even greater crisis. With the arrival of a ruthless federal agent and the return of a still nascent Joker, Batman must navigate uneasy alliances while Bruce Wayne undertakes a perilous series of deceptions. Which of Batman’s new allies will you choose to trust? And how deep into the darkness will you let Bruce descend?

Batman: The Enemy Within – Episode 1: The Enigma will be available to download for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices on August 8.
