• The Marvel Avengers reveal has been a little, shall we say, messy. Following its appearance at the Square Enix E3 2019 press conference it still wasn’t exactly clear what sort of game it actually was. Now we know: the game has a core single player storyline that you’ll be playing alone, jumping between different Avengers automatically as the story and action necessitates it. Crystal Dynamics, best known for its work on the Tomb Raider franchise, has crafted a traditional single-player experience
    You can't play the Marvel Avengers campaign with your friends, it's single-player only

  • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order won’t fully embrace Star Wars’ love for dismemberment. Despite that, impromptu lightsaber limb removal procedures will not be a regular occurrence in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. At first blush this decision could seem like an attempt to simply aim for lower age ratings, keeping the demographics consistent with Star Wars’ reputation as a (mostly) family-friendly franchise. I thought it was rad, but even then leaving a grisly trail of stormtrooper arms in my wake fel

  • There are some remasters that kick you straight in the feels, and that’s exactly what Nintendo’s chibi-esque reimagining of Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening has done to me. So then, it’s so wonderful to see the love and attention that’s clearly lurking under every rock, bush and chest in this Nintendo Switch remaster. As much there for old and new fansOf course, if you haven’t experienced Link’s Awakening yet, you’ll be pleased to hear that it’s a more traditional Zelda experience. There’s also

  • As I said in my Doom Eternal preview , the upcoming sequel – now due on November 22 – is fun as hell. As executive producer Marty Stratton of developer id Software told IGN in a recent interview, Doom Eternal’s multiplayer is ditching the standard deathmatch mode of the original game in favor of Battlemode, a new custom game type that pits the Doom Slayer against two player-controlled demons. “Skill vs skill, twitch vs twitch. Does the person who gets to play as the Doom Slayer change each round

  • Square Enix is interested in establishing a game streaming service similar to EA Access or Xbox Game Pass. “We do already provide games for Microsoft’s Game Pass,” he said. At present, as I say, we are offering our games on multiple subscription services, including Microsoft’s. As Matsuda pointed out – and as Square Enix has repeatedly acknowledged in the past – one of the barriers to creating such a service is obtaining the source code for old games. After being skipped for years, a Final Fanta

  • In particular, as our friends at PC Gamer reported, Howard discussed how space travel works in Starfield – and how perilous it can be. “Traveling in space in our game, I want to say it’s like flight in the ’40s, like it’s dangerous,” Howard said. But while the risks of space travel in Starfield are comparable to early flight, Howard also stressed that the game is set in the far future. Howard also said “we have to gamify it some so that it’s not as punishing as actual space travel.” We still don

  • The usual stuff: Placards, flyers and, oh yeah, a giant banner flying above the skies of San Diego demanding the Snyder Cut be released. Check out the GoFundMe page (H/T ReReleaseNews) that extensively charts the course of action for a Snyder Cut SDCC 2019 takeover. So, if you want to be a part of SDCC 2019 history, you can put your money where your mouth is. We could be nearing sending a copy of the Justice League into space at this point.

  • There’s plenty of Call of Duty Modern Warfare controversy around what you can do in the game (and likely more to come) but it looks like even the game has opinions, with character performances and dialogue that changes according to what you do. Part of Modern Warfare’s ‘thing’ is the idea of being pushed over the line, into the greys between the black and white of right and wrong. Speaking to Kotaku at E3 2019 campaign gameplay director Jacob Minkoff explained that however you tackle certain dec

  • The Stranger Things season 3 synopsis and episode titles are here. Except, things could still be shaken up in a big way: A possible friendship split, which was hinted at in a recent Stranger Things season 3 trailer, and a Barb-style murder mystery could be on the horizon. Then there’s the small matter of the Battle of Starcourt…So, what to expect from Stranger Things season 3?

  • But after going hands-on with the upcoming Pokemon Switch games, Pokemon Sword and Shield, it’s amazing just how much it changes battles. It helps that Pokemon Sword and Shield is a marked upgrade visually from any Pokemon game that’s come before, even last year’s Pokemon Let’s Go . The gripes don’t take away from the excitement of a new entry in the long-running Pokemon series. I just can’t wait to see what more Pokemon Sword and Shield, and their Galar region have to offer.

  • According to this Pokemon Sword and Shield leak, Eternatus is the name of a new third legendary, and Pokemon can “Gigantamax” as well as Dynamax. Back on May 23, prior to the pre-E3 2019 Nintendo Direct about Pokemon Sword and Shield, and well before the Nintendo Treehouse about the new Pokemon Switch games, somebody posted a Pokemon Sword and Shield leak to an online message board.

  • In an E3 2019 interview with IGN , Dark Souls director and From Software president Hidetaka Miyazaki shared a bit more on what we can expect from the studio’s new game Elden Ring . As expected, Elden Ring is a third-person action-RPG with combat and systems “heavily based on Dark Souls,” according to Miyazaki. “With a more open and vast environment, the way combat plays out becomes fundamentally different,” Miyazaki said, adding that Elden Ring’s more open environments also lead to different com

  • Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t just about Keanu Reeves , it’s also about player choice. “In Cyberpunk you don’t have to kill anyone at all,” said CD Projekt Red art director Katarzyna Redesiuk. Choice feels central to the entire Cyberpunk 2077 experience, from how you customize the main character V’s fashion ensembles to how you upgrade your skills. The no-kill promise is something we’ve seen before in games like Dishonored, but it will be fascinating to see how Cyberpunk 2077 makes it work. Cyberpunk 207

  • Keanu Reeves’ breathtaking cameo on the Xbox E3 2019 stage for Cyberpunk 2077 was a huge surprise, which is a rare thing for big stunts like that in the glitz of modern E3. Keeping the entire operation secret in an industry more prone to leaks than a Wiffle Ball water balloon was a complex operation, according to Xbox boss Phil Spencer. Spencer told Variety that people involved with running the presentation exclusively referred to Reeves via a codename in conversations leading up to his surprise

  • Fallout 76 is getting humans NPCs at last in its upcoming Wastelanders update, and whether you find yourself chatting to settlers or raiders, there’s a good chance you’ll get some Fallout 3 deja vu. I spoke to Jeff Gardiner, project lead on Fallout 76, who said that when it comes to Fallout 76 dialogue options, the entire dialogue tree “is going back to a Fallout 3 style” when it comes to deciding what you can say and how your perks affect the dialogue options you’re given. “The team was doublin

  • Fallout 76 has a brand new Nuclear Winter battle royale mode, and it’s live right now. So one thing I don’t think many people have really caught onto yet is that you can take your blueprints that you’ve created in Adventure Mode and actually use them in Nuclear Winter. You could create some very specific blueprints that you think would be really good for fortification. Before Nuclear Winter, you go into Adventure Mode and build those things out. You save them, and you go into Nuclear Winter.

  • As Xbox boss Phil Spencer said in an E3 2019 interview with GamesIndustry , the company isn’t necessarily done shopping around, and it’s especially interested in adding a Japanese studio to its roster. “I think it would be nice if we found an Asian studio, in particular a Japanese studio, to add [to our roster],” Spencer said. Depending on the studio(s) acquired, it could also help Xbox add some exclusive JRPGs to its library, which Xbox One is sorely lacking. So with Xbox Game Pass , we think a

  • Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel DLC is looking like a strong possibility. Funny thing – when the Nintendo E3 2019 presentation started showing a Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel , it looked familiar enough that I wondered if it was going to be a new downloadable expansion for the first game. That pushed the team to pull an old Zelda trick out of the book and do a direct, immediate sequel. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was an experiment for the series, shaking off fundamentals like col
