Get an “Extended Look” at Telltale’s Walking Dead: A New Frontier at the 2016 Game Awards

Not satisfied enough with releasing one trailer for an upcoming game, Telltale Games tonight also released an “Extended Look” trailer for A New Frontier, the third season of The Walking Dead. In this season, series mainstay Clementine is not the only main character. Instead, we see the zombie apocalypse through the eyes of a new character, Javier, with Clem along for the ride as a supporting character. The “Extended Look” trailer gives us a good idea of the events that befell Javier’s family at the onset of the outbreak, and then quickly jumps to the present-day, where he meets up with Clementine.

A special two-part premiere of Telltale’s The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will be released on December 20th. The remainder of the episodes will launch in 2017.

Game Awards 2016 Trailer: Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment

During tonight’s Game Awards ceremony, Yacht Club games presented the next DLC update to their wildly popular game, Shovel Knight. The add-on, titled Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment, tells an entirely new story as seen through the eyes of Specter Knight, the first member of The Order of No Quarter. If the Plague of Shadows chapter is any indication, this expansion will breathe new life into the already-addicting retro title.

In a Kickstarter update, Yacht Club promised that players will find “new areas, new music, new enemies, new objects, new boss fights, new weapons, new armors, and way, way more than ever before” in Specter of Torment. They also revealed that the add-on will serve as a prequel to Shovel Knight’s main storyline.

No release date was given, but we should expect to see the update sometime in Spring 2017.

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.

Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, Amnesia Collection, Batman: Telltale Series – Episode 4, more added to PS Store

Holidays can be scary, but yesterday’s PlayStation Store update will turn the terror up a few notches with the launch of the Amensia Collection for the PS4. The Collection includes all three horror games in the franchise, starting with the original game, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. PS4 players will also get the chance to scream their heads off with the expansion, Amnesia: Justine; and the sequel, Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs.

Speaking of scary… the apocalyptic Darksiders is also available to download for this week. THQ Nordic will re-release the action RPG for the PS4 as Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, and players will get to experience the game with an enhanced 1080p presentation for the first time.

Elsewhere on the PlayStation Store, PlayStation VR owners will be able to step onto a real basketball court this week with NBA 2K VR Experience. The basketball-themed minigame collection includes an appearance by Paul George, and a trio of shooting challenges in virtual reality.

Finally this week, Telltale will continue Batman: The Telltale Series this week with the release of Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham on the PS4 and PS3. Bruce Wayne has gotten himself into some Arkham-related troubles, but maybe The Joker can lend him a helping hand… and a smile.

More information about all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And a full rundown of this week’s new add-ons is available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
