batmantelltale-header

Making good on their promise to complete Batman: The Telltale Series by the end of the year, Telltale Games has announced the game’s final episode, City of Light, will be released on December 13.

In Episode 5, the leader of the Children of Arkham prepares to execute the final act of a plan to destroy the Wayne family name, and the people closest to you are in their path of vengeance. Can Batman’s ultimate secret be kept – his very identity – when it is causing chaos and death in Gotham? The fate of the Wayne family and of the city itself rests on your choices. What will you do? How far will you go? Which mask will you wear?

With Batman: The Telltale Series coming an end, the developer also wants to give fans a chance to try it out for free. The first episode, Realm of Shadows, is now available as a free download for the PC through Steam.

The fifth episode in Telltale’s Batman series will be available to download next week on the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and mobile devices.

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.

First episode of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will be released on December 20

thewalkingdeadanewfrontier-header

It looks like Telltale fans will have to shamble into December to get their next Walking Dead fix. Today, the developer announced that the (currently untitled) first episode of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will premiere on December 20.

Like with Telltale’s previous games, fans will be able to download it for a large number of platforms including the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and mobile devices. Telltale also announced that everyone who pre-orders A New Frontier on the PS4 will also receive The Walking Dead Season 2 and The Walking Dead: Michonne for free.

The digital downloads will be followed by the release of a Season Pass Disc for the PS4 and Xbox One on February 7. The Season Pass Disc will include the first episode of the season, along with downloadable access to all subsequent episodes as they become available.

When family is all you have left… how far will you go to protect it? Four years after society was ripped apart by undead hands, pockets of civilization emerge from the chaos. But at what cost? Can the living be trusted on this new frontier? As Javier, a young man determined to find the family taken from him, you meet a young girl who has experienced her own unimaginable loss. Her name is Clementine, and your fates are bound together in a story where every choice you make could be your last.

Telltale debuted A New Frontier’s first trailer this past Summer at the E3 Expo, but they plan to give fans a closer look at the game during this year’s Game Awards on December 1.

Black Friday Game Deals 2016: Xbox Games Store (11/18 – 11/28)

I have a confession to make… I don’t like crowds. So as you can imagine, trying to find a bargain on Black Friday is not something I look forward to. Thankfully, Microsoft is discounting more than 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 games through the Xbox Games Store this week… and I won’t even need to leave my couch.

Microsoft isn’t revealing their full slate of Black Friday discounts just yet, but Xbox One owners will be able to pick up Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition, and Fallout 4 on November 25 for cheap.

However, Xbox owners won’t need to wait for Black Friday to start seeing most of the sale prices. Most games will go on sale beginning November 22, and Xbox Live Gold subscribers will get additional discounts and early access to the deals starting on November 18.

So head over to the Xbox Games Store now if you’re in the market for a good deal on Battlefield 1, Overwatch, Batman: The Telltale Series, FIFA 17, Grand Theft Auto V, Life Is Strange, Mafia III, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and dozens of other titles.

You can find the full list of discounted titles after the break. (more…)

Commercial director Simon McQuoid will probably direct the next Mortal Kombat movie

Itobandito-RetrowareTVMortalKombatRetrospectiveSeason1Episode6541Kevin Tancharoen directed two feature-length webseries based on the Mortal Kombat saga for Warner Bros. (2011’s Mortal Kombat: Legacy and 2013’s Mortal Kombat: Legacy II), but the studio has also spent the last five years trying to produce a third theatrical adaptation of the fighting franchise. And after all that time, it looks like they may have finally found their director.

According to Variety, Simon McQuoid is in discussions to direct the next Mortal Kombat movie, with Saw‘s James Wan serving as a producer. Lawrence Kasanoff, one of the driving forces behind 1995’s Mortal Kombat and 1997’s Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (and the upcoming Tetris movie), has signed on as an Executive Producer. No actors are currently connected to the third Mortal Kombat film, but Warner Bros. confirmed the film’s script will be written by rookie screenwriter Greg Russo.

Even if you’re a serious film buff, McQuoid’s name is probably something of a question mark. Until now, the filmmaker has worked exclusively in advertising, though Variety notes that his commercials have won multiple awards including a Grand Clio, a D&AD Pencil, and a GRANDY Award.
