A while back Microsoft scheduled a next-gen related event for May 21st, presumably to show off their shiny new console before E3. Now Activision and Infinity Ward have announced that they too will be at Microsoft’s unveiling to show off a little project of their own. The now confirmed Call of Duty: Ghosts will be revealed on May 21st alongside the next Xbox, presumably bringing with it some sort of exclusivity deal the two companies have hammered out. Whether this will be exclusive content, timed exclusives, or even platform exclusivity is all speculation at this point, though it was rumored a while back by Kotaku that Microsoft had a doozey of an exclusive up their sleeve. Could it be Call of Duty: Ghosts? Only time will tell, but mark your calendars for May 21st and check back here for more info as it becomes available. Share your thoughts, leave a comment.
This is a little old now, but I forgot to post about it when it came out so here I am doing it now. Thief 4 is coming, and here’s a trailer to prove it.
This is the first thief game in a long time, and it’ll be interesting to see if they manage to stick to pure stealth or fall for the temptation of adding action to the series like Dishonored and Splinter Cell. Share your thoughts, leave a comment.
Rockstar have put out a new trailer for Grand Theft Auto V, and its got a fun little twist. The game revolves around three interconnected characters’ stories, each with different themes and tones to give it a unique flavor. Like this premise, the trailer contains three character introductions, giving you an idea of the tone behind each protagonist. There’s Michael, the rich ex-criminal who pines for the past, Franklin, the up and coming gangster whose not sure he likes where things are heading, and Trevor, the crazy hillbilly who likes to hurt people and have fun. Take a look.
As I’ve said before, I haven’t played any of the GTA‘s, I loved Red Dead Redemption, and I was ho-hum about L.A. Noire. I’ll probably be giving this a try, and it’ll be fun to see the ways Rockstar mixes and matches the various criminal tropes into a single story. Share your thoughts, leave a comment.
For those that have been following it, Watch Dogs is an open-world action game from Ubisoft that centers on the exploits of hacker-vigilante Aiden Pearce. It’s already been revealed that the game is heading for next-gen consoles, and now we have a release date to go with that statement.
So mark your calendars for November 19th, Watch Dogs is hitting shelves. This also gives a pretty solid window I think for the PS4′s launch. If the game will be available for PS4 by November 19th, it seems a safe bet the PS4 will be available by then too, which matches the October-November 2013 estimates a lot of analysts have been putting out there.
