Shelob isn’t just a giant spider in the latest Middle-Earth: Shadow of War trailer

Shelob is quite possibly the most famous spider in all of fiction, but the character will become so much more in this Fall’s Middle-Earth: Shadow of War.

“The Spider” revealed her human form to Talion and Celebrimbor in a new trailer for Middle-Earth: Shadow of War that was released during this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con. Players will actually approach Shelob as something of an ally, and she’ll provide visions that help push the game’s plot forward. While that sounds like a good deal for Talion, I’m not sure I’d be able to trust a giant spider.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 10.

Spider-Man, Haggar, Frank West, Nemesis join Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite in Comic-Con 2017 trailer

The Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite roster recently expanded by four as Capcom revealed a new trailer featuring Spider-Man, Final Fight‘s Haggar, Dead Rising‘s Frank West, and Resident Evil 3‘s Nemesis during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The video also includes more footage of Thanos and Gamora, as well as the first look at the Mind Stone in action.

If you’re unfamiliar with any member of this quartet, the Capcom-Unity blog delves into their backstories a bit, and discusses how the Mind Stone can affect matches:

The Mind Stone is the fifth announced Infinity Stone for Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite. This stone brings a command grab type of attack to its wielder in the air and on the ground. Upon landing a successful Infinity Surge attack, the opponent will fall to the ground and wake up in a daze, giving the wielder plenty of time to set up their next attack. Activating the Infinity Storm gives players a boost in hyper gauge regeneration. Hyper gauge will naturally increase without performing any additional actions, letting players build up their powerful super attacks much faster.

Marvel Vs Capcom: Infinite will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on September 19.

Activision unveils the return of Nazi Zombies in new Call of Duty: WWII trailer

As promised, Activision and Sledgehammer unveiled the brand new Nazi Zombies cooperative mode for Call of Duty: WWII during the first day of Comic-Con 2017.

The terrifying trailer includes voicework from a clearly-insane Udo Kier, but no appearances from the player-characters, who will be portrayed by David Tennant, Elodie Yung, Katheryn Winnick, and Ving Rhames:

Call of Duty: WWII – Nazi Zombies is a terrifying, new zombies cooperative experience that transports players into a labyrinth of chilling occult Nazi zombies experiments, and monstrous creations set mythically in World War II. The story unfolds as an international team peels back the vile layers of a malevolent plot masterminded by the Axis powers to harness unimaginable occult forces and create an invincible undead army. Featuring voices and likenesses, the global cast features David Tennant, Elodie Yung, Katheryn Winnick, Udo Kier, and Ving Rhames.

“With Nazi Zombies, we’re creating a frightening world full of terrifying characters and events that will make you jump and look over your shoulder. There’s an incredible amount of myth and lore, which our team has poured through in our development,” said Glen Schofield, a Studio Head at Sledgehammer Games. “This is unlike anything before, we’re taking players to some very dark, grim places in Nazi Zombies. This is one hell of a horror experience.”

Michael Condrey, another Studio Head at Sledgehammer Games added, “We couldn’t be more excited to showcase our reveal of Nazi Zombies here at San Diego Comic Con. It’s been great to return to creating a horror-based experience, and with Call of Duty, head back to the Nazi Zombies roots. The team at the studio is proud of the opportunity to deliver something special for the fans.”

Call of Duty: WWII will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 3.

The Wolf Among Us Season 2 will huff and puff its way into your house in 2018

The last of Telltale’s “Summer 2017/Comic-Con 2017” announcements earlier this week was the highly-anticipated reveal of The Wolf Among Us Season 2. Set to launch sometime in the second half of 2018 for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices, The Wolf Among Us Season 2 will feature the return of Bigby Wolf and Snow White in a new adventure based on Bill Willingham’s Fables:

With overwhelming popular demand from fans since the series concluded in 2014, Telltale surprised their fans today in an announcement video from the cast and crew confirming that the project is coming in the year ahead. Though this new season has not yet been officially titled, it will debut in the second half of 2018 across all major gaming consoles and mobile gaming devices. This new season will begin a fresh story arc for its returning cast of characters, featuring the return of Adam Harrington as Bigby Wolf and Erin Yvette as Snow White.

The Wolf Among Us came to an end in 2014, and it looked like the end for the residents of Fabletown, but thanks to the “overwhelming popular demand from fans,” Telltale is finally moving ahead with a sequel.

Square Enix will bring Final Fantasy, Lost Sphear, Life Is Strange: Before the Storm to Comic-Con 2017

The San Diego Comic-Con kicked off today, and Square Enix brought a handful of upcoming games to the Summer’s biggest convention for fans to test out. While attendees won’t get the chance to play Kingdom Hearts III or the Final Fantasy VII Remake on the show floor, there will be plenty of demo stations in the publisher’s booth featuring these titles:

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age (Now Available)
Platform: PS4
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age improves upon the 2006 classic Final Fantasy XII, now more beautiful and easier to play than ever. The HD remaster introduces a reconstructed battle design and the new Zodiac Job System, a 12-job character progression system first introduced in the 2007 title, Final Fantasy XII International Zodiac Job System. With updated trophies and share functionalities, as well as stark visual and sound improvements, players both new and returning will experience the ultimate grand adventure through the world of Ivalice in an entirely new and improved way.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT (Early 2018)
Platform: PS4
Developed in partnership with Team Ninja from Koei Tecmo, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is the newly announced team-based brawler. The game pits legendary heroes and villains from Final Fantasy’s 30-year history against each other in epic and strategic 3 vs. 3 battles. Players will choose a team from a roster of more than 20 beloved Final Fantasy characters across ten iconic battle arenas and call forth fan-favorite summons. With a deep customization and progression system, players will gain experience points and unlock EX skills, weapons, skins, and more as they develop their favorite Final Fantasy characters, their way.

Lost Sphear (TBA 2018)
Platform: PC, PS4, Switch
Expanding on the beloved I Am Setsuna, the Lost Sphear adventure begins in a remote town where a young man, Kanata, awakens from a devastating dream to find his hometown disappearing. To stop the world from being Lost forever, Kanata and his comrades set out to rebuild the world around them with the power of Memory by manifesting thoughts into matter.

Square Enix will also invite the “key creative minds” behind Life Is Strange: Before the Storm to San Diego for a panel on Friday, July 21. The speakers will reveal “brand new information and insights about their game for the first time,” as well as lead the audience in a live playthrough of the game.

But in case you are on the lookout for new Kingdom Hearts III information, Square Enix unveiled a new trailer (and a 2018 release date) for their hotly-anticipated action RPG during Disney’s annual D23 Expo last week.

Telltale’s The Walking Dead will return for The Final Season in 2018

Ahead of this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, Telltale Games has announced plans to produce one final season of The Walking Dead. Fittingly enough, it’ll be known as The Walking Dead: The Final Season, and the first episode will be available for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices in 2018.

Players will once again follow Clementine as she navigates a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies in The Final Season. A short teaser trailer has been embedded above, and Telltale also created an accompanying retrospective video detailing Clementine’s impact on the development team and the video game industry.

In a series retrospective released today in celebration of Comic-Con through Telltale’s Summer 2017 Update, the development team at Telltale sat down to reflect on the journey of series protagonist Clementine since the first episode premiered in April of 2012. In discussing the character’s path all the way through 2017’s conclusion of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, Telltale confirmed that this fourth and final season would focus on Clementine in the lead role, allowing players to fully step back into the shoes of the fan favorite character.

“It’s going to be an amazing experience. Thank you all so much, from the bottom of my heart,” said the voice of Clementine, Melissa Hutchison. “It’s been a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, and so much love has been behind this whole experience. Good luck, I’ll be right there with you.”

Hopefully, we’ll learn more about The Walking Dead: The Final Season soon.
