Xbox Store Today: The Walking Dead A New Frontier Episode 5, Tokyo 42, Victor Vran, more

Nine new Xbox One games are now available to download through the Xbox Games Store, but we’re shining a spotlight on three of them…

Telltale Games has finished up another season of their epic Walking Dead adaptations with The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Episode 5: From the Gallows. Javier and Clementine are in trouble again, and players will have to decide who to trust and who to protect (Clementine… the correct answer to both questions is Clementine).

Also available to download today is Tokyo 42, a “hyper-stylish” isometric open-world shooter from Mode 7 Games. Set in a micro-sized and “ultra-colorful” version of Tokyo, players will blast their way through a strange story of assassins, espionage, and intrigue.

Finally today, Haemimont Games will bring Victor Vran to the Xbox One. The Diablo-like overhead action RPG was originally released for the PC in 2015, and players will be able unleash hell on a horde of demons with “a monumental arsenal of powerful weapons, game-changing outfits, wicked demon powers, and fate-binding destiny cards.”

More information on all of these games (and six other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)

PS Store This Week: Tekken 7, Danger Zone, Star Trek Bridge Crew, more

This week’s PlayStation Store update is like a reunion with old friends…

Things will really start to heat up this Friday, when Tekken 7 brings the story of the Mishima clan to an end on the PS4. The fighting game series that dabbled in storylines involving corporate-funded armies and sentient bears will finally resolve the mystery behind the Devil Gene and answer the question of who truly owns the Mishima Zaibatsu company.

But if you’re looking for something to download today, a trio of new games offer even more familiar faces. Three Fields launched Danger Zone for the PS4, a spiritual successor to the ridiculous crashes found in the Burnout series of racing games. Also available to download is Star Trek: Bridge Crew, a PlayStation VR-exclusive simulation of captaining your own Federation starship. Finally, Nihon Falcom will bring Ys Origin, a prequel to the popular RPG series, to the Vita.

Finally, Telltale’s The Walking Dead: A New Frontier comes to an end this week in Episode 5: From the Gallows.

You can learn more about these titles (and the rest of this week’s new releases) after the break. (more…)

Telltale reveals a Launch Trailer for The Walking Dead: A New Frontier’s final episode

“I’ve been here before. It’s not gonna end well for everyone.”

Telltale Games closed the book on The Walking Dead: A New Frontier today with the release of Episode 5: From the Gallows. To celebrate, the developer has released a new Launch Trailer for the final chapter:

In Telltale’s most tailored episode to date, Richmond teeters on the brink of collapse as chaos reigns from all directions. The lives of its citizens and all those closest to Javier hang in the balance. The decisions you’ve made and bonds you’ve nurtured across the season will determine which characters now trust Javi to safeguard all they hold dear as the crisis pushes every relationship past its breaking point…

Telltale hasn’t made any announcements about a possible fourth season for The Walking Dead, but I’m going to assume that fans are very eagerly hoping the developer will continue their most popular franchise.
