The Third Street Saints are going to Hell. Today, Volition announced Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell during the close of their PAX Prime panel. The standalone expansion will be released for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on January 27, 2015… and yes, you will be able to shoot The Devil in the face:
Play as either Johnny Gat or Kinzie Kensington as you tear apart Hell in a quest to save the leader of the Saints’ soul. Historical icons, old friends, older enemies, a talking gun, a full length musical number, and a whole lot of other shenanigans all await you in the open world standalone expansion playground that is Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell.
But wait, there’s more. Gat Out of Hell isn’t the only Saints Row game that will make its debut on next-gen consoles this January. Volition also announced that Saints Row IV: Re-Elected, a PS4 and Xbox One port of Saints Row IV that also includes Gat Out of Hell.
If you’re attending PAX Prime this weekend, be sure to stop by the Deep Silver booth to play both Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell and Saints Row IV: Re-Elected.
If you’ve been keeping track of the recent retail releases and yesterday’s PlayStation Store update, then most of today’s Xbox Live update should look pretty familiar:
- There’s the annual gridiron football simulation from EA Sports (better known as Madden NFL 15) for the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One.
- Deep Silver and 4A Games have also made their Metro re-do, Metro Redux, available for download on the Xbox One (individual downloads of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are also available).
- Telltale Games has finished up The Walking Dead Season 2 with the fifth episode, “No Going Back.”
- And finally, Rising Star and GRev have released the Dreamcast update, Under Defeat HD.
More details on all of these titles can be found after the break. (more…)
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is one of 2014’s biggest movies, and with any summer blockbuster movie comes the inevitable video game based on said blockbuster movie. And as any self-respecting gamer should know, movie-based games are not of the highest quality. In fact, a majority of the time they just plain suck. Such was not the case in 2012, when the first Amazing Spider-Man game was released to positive reviews. Now that the sequel is out, gamers everywhere hoped that the Amazing Spider-Man 2 would be of the same quality as the first game. While it is an OK game, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 doesn’t quite do everything a spider can. (more…)
Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is about to get a whole lot bigger thanks to at least two Skin Packs featuring The Doctor. Make that Doctors, as all 12 will eventually make their Minecraft debut this Fall.
According to the Play XBLA blog, the first Doctor Who Skin Pack will be available next month. The first pack will include six Doctors (including the Twelfth Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi), their companions, several of the series most famous villains, and the Daleks. Other adversaries and other Doctors will appear in future Skin Packs, which are currently without a release date.
The first Doctor Who Skin Pack (and presumably all the rest) will be available to download for $2.99 each.
Disney just released a video showcasing characters from their upcoming animated film, Big Hero 6, as they will be featured in their upcoming video game, Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (AKA Disney Infinity 2.0). The figures are based on the movie’s protagonists, Baymax and Hiro, and they’ll be available in stores soon.
And because we here at Warp Zoned love you just so much, the trailer for the movie is available after the break. Disney Infinity 2.0 (AKA Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes) hits stores on September 23. Big Hero 6 opens in theaters on November 7. (more…)
Deep Silver has announced that their Dead Island spinoff, Escape Dead Island, will be released for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on November 18. The game, which was partially inspired by Eternal Darkness, will question your sanity as you attempt to escape from an island paradise overrun by zombies. To really showcase Escape Dead Island’s mind-altering setpieces, Deep Silver has released a new trailer that has been embedded above.
The publisher will also give gamers a chance to demo the game for themselves this weekend at the PAX Prime convention in Seattle.
Deep Silver has more than one surprise planned for this weekend’s PAX Prime convention. Besides the previously announced unveiling of Volition’s next project, the publisher will offer the following playable demos at its booth in the South Hall:
- Dead Island 2: Experience the first hands-on in the United States for the upcoming AAA zombie blockbuster from Yager Development.
- Escape Dead Island: The world’s first consumer hands-on for the third person survival mystery spin-off, set in the Dead Island universe.
- Metro Redux: Play Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light together with all DLC now on new-gen consoles running at a seamless 60 frames per second.
Deep Silver also plans to showcase at least one secret title at their booth. So it seems likely that if you miss the Volition panel on Friday morning you’ll still get a chance to get a good look at their next game. And who knows, perhaps Deep Silver has a few other surprises up their sleeve…
In an interview with IGN, Activision’s Robert Conkey has confirmed that the Platinum-developed game based on Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra will be available to download in October.
The Legend of Korra will be available for the PC (via Steam) and the PlayStation Network (for the PS3 and PS4) on October 21. Xbox 360 and Xbox One owners will have to wait an extra day as it will be released through the Xbox Live Marketplace on October 22.
The announcement was part of a series of Korra-related interviews published by IGN yesterday. So if you love the show, you might want to check them out. As a bonus, you’ll find out that David Faustino (the former Bud Bundy and the current voice of Mako) has been slowly morphing into an American-accented Jean Claude Van Damme over the past few years.
