It’s Wednesday and another big day is in store for Microsoft’s Xbox Games Store…
First up, Bethesda is relaunching The Elder Scrolls Online with its latest expansion, The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind. Players will return to the island of Vvardenfell on the Xbox One to save it from a “deadly Daedric threat” and battle other players in the Ashlands in a 4v4v4 arena-style environment.
Also available to download today for the Xbox One is Perception from The Deep End Games. Perception is a narrative-driven adventure game where players take control of Cassie, a blind woman with a supernatural connection to a haunted mansion. After the nightmares become too much, Cassie goes to the mansion to discover what mysteries live within its walls.
Elsewhere on the Xbox Games Store, Telltale Games has continued their Guardians of the Galaxy series with Episode 2: Under Pressure. Xbox One owners will be able to explore Rocket’s past while also receiving help from “dubious old friends and unwilling new allies.”
Finally today, Codemasters will release Dirt 4 for the Xbox One, and off-road racing fans will get to tackle new rally, rallycross, and landrush events.
You can learn more about all of these games (and the rest of today’s new releases) after the break. (more…)
Wipeout Omega Collection, Perception, Elder Scrolls Online Morrowind, more added to PS Store this week
The PlayStation Store is racing for the future with this week’s update…
First up is the Wipeout: Omega Collection, a new PS4 compilation featuring the last two games in the series. The futuristic racing franchise may have faded away in 2012, but Sony is hoping that fans will want to replay Wipeout HD, its Fury expansion, and Wipeout 2048 one more time with enhanced graphics and sound.
Also available to download this week is a different kind of racing game from Codemasters. The publisher has relaunched its off-road racing series with Dirt 4 for the PS4. Including more than 50 vehicles and an almost unlimited number of routes, Dirt 4 will keep fans busy for quite a while. And speaking of dedicated fans, Bethesda is returning to the island of Vvardenfell for new adventures in The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind for the PS4.
Finally this week, PS4 players will get the chance to download the Diablo-like Victor Vran and Perception, a first-person narrative adventure created by a team of developers who previously worked on BioShock and Dead Space. Telltale will also launch Guardians of the Galaxy – Episode 2: Under Pressure, the newest episode in their Marvel adaptation.
You can learn more about all of these games (and nearly a dozen other new releases) after the break. (more…)
Star-Lord comes back from the dead… Drax wants to kill someone… and Rocket reminisces about his part… just your average afternoon for the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Marvel’s cosmic superteam has returned this week for Under Pressure, the second chapter in Telltale’s episodic adventure series, and Telltale has released a brand new Launch Trailer for the add-on:
The Guardians just can’t seem to outrun the past (or their tab), but if they figure out how to control the untold power of their mysterious new relic, they might not have to. With help from dubious old friends and unwilling new allies, Star-Lord and company scour the galaxy for answers. But how long can they elude the genocidal maniac hunting them? And will simmering tensions finally tear the team apart?
Guardians of the Galaxy – Episode 2: Under Pressure should be available to download for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices beginning today.
Telltale Games has announced that their Guardians of the Galaxy series will continue on June 6 with the release of Episode 2: Under Pressure. It looks like the Guardians are still being pursued by Thanos in this episode, but we’ll also get a flashback to Rocket’s early life:
In “Under Pressure,” the Guardians just can’t seem to outrun the past (or their tab), but if they figure out how to control the untold power of their mysterious new relic, they might not have to. With help from dubious old friends and unwilling new allies, Star-Lord and company scour the galaxy for answers. But how long can they elude the genocidal maniac hunting them? And will simmering tensions finally tear the team apart?
And get ready to delve into a certain Rocket Raccoon’s past…
Guardians of the Galaxy: Episode 2 – Under Pressure will be available to download for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices.
We’ve got three new games for the last Retail Release Report in April 2017…
Even though the new Prey has nothing to do with Human Head’s bizarre first person shooter from 2006 or its canceled sequel, Bethesda will release a new entry in the franchise this week for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Players will assume the role of Morgan Yu, a crew member on the Talo I space station. The the aliens show up and humanity becomes the “prey” of the title.
Also also available on store shelves this week is the Season Pass Disc for Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy adaptation. Just in time for the theatrical opening of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, the PS4 and Xbox One disc will include the game’s first episode, Tangled Up In Blue, and downloadable access to all four upcoming episodes.
That’s all for now, but we’ll be back soon with a look at this week’s new additions to the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store, and Nintendo eShop.
Microsoft is taking us back to the early days of the original Xbox with today’s Xbox Games Store update.
Vince, the “plucky Voodoo doll” that starred in 2003’s Voodoo Vince, is back at it in Voodoo Vince Remastered. The Louisiana-set platformer has received a high definition makeover for its Xbox One debut, and as an Xbox Play Anywhere title, fans will also receive access to the game on Windows 10 with a single purchase.
Xbox One owners with a nostalgic streak actually have a lot to choose from in today’s Xbox Games Store update. Telltale will spin some classic tunes in Guardians of the Galaxy: Episode 1 – Tangled Up In Blue… Tribute Games will launch a side-scrolling platformer starring an adorable space pirate in Flinthook… and Capcom will bring back six classic NES-era Disney games in The Disney Afternoon Collection.
You can learn more about all of these games (and the rest of this week’s new releases) after the break. (more…)
The PlayStation Store is flying a retro-themed flag once again this week, and we start things off with Full Throttle Remastered, which is now available to download for the PS4 and Vita as a Cross-Buy purchase.
Originally released in 1995, and developed by Tim Schafer, Full Throttle is a point-and-click adventure where players get mixed up in the high octane world of “Motorcycles, Mayhem, and Murder.” The Remastered version of the game includes full Trophy support, optional high resolution artwork, and a commentary track with the game’s creators.
Also availabe to download this week is another blast from the mid 90s… The Disney Afternoon Collection for the PS4. All six games in The Disney Afternoon Collection (Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers, Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers 2, Darkwing Duck, DuckTales, DuckTales 2, and TaleSpin) were originally released for the NES, and this new compilation includes Boss Rush and Time Attack modes, retro-themed graphical filters, and Trophy support.
The third game in this week’s retro parade is Flinthook, a prodcedurally-generated side-scroller from Tribute Games. Available to download for the PS4, Flinthook stars a space pirate who loves his handy grappling hook and stealing booty from rival pirates.
Goichi “Suda51” Suda is no stranger to a wild and wacky adventure, and that’s true of The Silver Case, which can be downloaded for the PS4 this week. The remastered re-release of Suda’s visual novel (which was never-before-available in North America) includes an “intricate story” and remade high definition visuals.
Finally this week, Telltale Games will kick off their Guardians of the Galaxy series with Episode 1 – Tangled Up In Blue. The Nova Corps has tasked the Guardians with stopping Thanos… and that goes about as well as you’d expect. It’s available to download now for the PS4, and all five episodes in the series will be released by the end of the year.
You can learn more about all of this week’s additions to the PlayStation Store after the break. (more…)
Telltale Games will head back out to the furthest reaches of space this week with “Tangled Up In Blue,” the first episode from their Guardians of the Galaxy series. The developer also released a brand new Launch Trailer to go along with today’s launch on the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices:
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is a brand new story of the universe’s unlikeliest Super Heroes: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot. In the wake of an epic battle, the Guardians discover an artifact of unspeakable power. Each of them has a reason to desire this relic, as does a ruthless enemy who is the last of her kind, and who will stop at nothing to tear it from their hands.
From Earth to the Milano to Knowhere and beyond, and set to the beat of awesome music, you wear the rocket-powered boots of Star-Lord in an original Guardians adventure, where your decisions and actions drive the story you experience.
In addition to this week’s digital debut, Telltale will also release a special Season Pass Disc for Guardians of the Galaxy on May 2. The Season Pass Disc will include “Tangled Up In Blue” and downloadable access to the subsequent four episodes as they’re released.
