Fullbright, the independent game company that brought us Gone Home, announced their new game, Tacoma, during last night’s Game Awards festivities.
“What mysteries await you, 200,000 miles from Earth? Who is exploring Lunar Transfer Station Tacoma? And what happened here?”
Fullbright will be giving us “new, big problems to solve” – but first, they need to solve “the problems of how story exploration gameplay works in microgravity, what kind of near-future timeline might lead to the existence of Tacoma Station, what this imagined place looks like, what the daily lives of its inhabitants might be like…” Basically, they’re going to solve some problems first, and then give us some problems to solve in turn.
Friday the 13th (with Purple Tracksuit Jason!) was released for the NES in 1989 and it was one of the last video games to dabble in the slasher subgenre. Thankfully, the maniacs are back as no less than three slasher simulators are slowly working their way towards consoles and PCs. Sony is doing their part by teaming up with Supermassive Games to release Until Dawn for the PS4 in 2015.
Until Dawn stars Hayden Panettiere as Samantha and you can watch her look scared in a new trailer for the game released during today’s opening act of the PlayStation Experience. And if you’re in a particularly sadistic mood, you can watch her be menaced by a deranged clown in the brand new Game Awards 2014 “World Premiere” trailer after the break.
Between her bloody end in Scream 4 and all the times Sylar went after her on Heroes, Panettiere likely feels right at home in both trailers. (more…)
King’s Quest is being remade and returning to the PC and consoles in Fall of 2015. The game is being developed by The Odd Gentleman and will be published under Activision’s Sierra label. This charming trailer, which was revealed at last night’s Game Awards, has revealed that the game will bring “a contemporary new take on the classic adventure game series with a creative new art style, puzzles, and story,” according to the Activision Blog.
Keep an eye out for King’s Quest, which will be coming to PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One in the Fall of 2015.
From Software and Sony Japan Studio revealed a brand new gameplay trailer for their next (and sure to be crushingly difficult) RPG, Bloodborne, last night at the 2014 Game Awards. The video features online cooperative gameplay, gives you a glimpse of the “ancient city of Yharnam,” and culminates with “a confrontation with the mysterious and fearsome hunter Gascoigne,” according to the PlayStation Blog.
Bloodborne will be available for the PlayStation 4 on March 24, 2015. A brand new gameplay feature is set to be revealed this weekend at the PlayStation Experience in Las Vegas. Hit the jump to check out the cover art. (more…)
As Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma were showcasing The Legend of Zelda Wii U during yesterday’s Games Awards, Aonuma casually turned to Miyamoto and asked him about Star Fox Wii U. Miyamoto, never one to lose his cool, pulled off a great Pretend Surprise Face and quickly discussed his secretive space shooter:
“What? Star Fox? You’re asking me that now? No worries about Star Fox. Star Fox will arrive before the Legend of Zelda [Wii U] next year. The way it uses the GamePad is really starting to feel good.”
Aonuma added that Star Fox Wii U will be released after The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, which is currently scheduled to launch in the Spring. So we’ll likely get Star Fox Wii U in the Summer and The Legend of Zelda Wii U in the Fall.
In this stage of Shigeru Miyamoto’s career, the legendary developer has morphed into a sort of kindly uncle figure for the video game world. And when he gets together with Eiji Aonuma, the Director of the Zelda franchise, the two of them get into a calming groove like a pair of old friends.
This genial relationship is at the center of the first gameplay video for The Legend of Zelda Wii U, which was unveiled during last night’s Game Awards. The two developers chatted while showing gamers just a taste of the game’s massive open world. Thankfully, Link is equipped with the Sailcloth (from Skyward Sword) and is able to call on Epona for assistance. Epona is now smart enough to find her own path through the world, deftly avoiding trees and allowing Link to aim and fire his bow from the saddle. And when its time to explore, Link has added a cool slow-motion dismount to his repertoire.
The Legend of Zelda Wii U will be released next year, likely towards the end of 2015.
Human Element, the first game from Robert Bowling’s Robotoki studio, is barreling towards its November 2015 release date, which is now less than a year away. In honor of the inaugural Game Awards show, Bowling debuted the first trailer from the PC, PS4, and Xbox One first person shooter last night.
Set 35 years after a zombie apocalypse caused the fall of society, survivors group together in warring factions to fight zombies (and each other) for the last remaining supplies in the world.
