Salt and Sacrifice, the recently announced follow-up to developer Ska Studios' indie hit Salt and Sanctuary, has just received an extended trailer showing off a whopping 10 minutes of gameplay. 

The PlayStation trailer highlights the combat and platforming challenges players will face in Salt and Sacrifice, as well as a couple of boss fights and co-op play. The studio's distinct hand-drawn style and unique foggy lighting are back in what already looks to be another compelling Soulslike adventure. 

Salt and Sacrifice was revealed at the Summer Games Fest kickoff event, with a trailer that showcased some new mechanics, such as the grapple hook, which we get a closer look at in this gameplay trailer. It already looks to be creating new, complex platforming challenges while adding a level of player maneuverability that wasn't possible in Salt and Sanctuary

Glimpses of the game's inventory, equipment, and crafting systems can be seen, alongside what looks to be a fast travel system involving runes. 

There's still no word on a specific release date for Salt and Sacrifice, and there is no more clarification regarding whether or not it'll come to Xbox and Nintendo consoles. For now, Salt and Sacrifice is set for Q1 2022, launching on PC, PlayStation 4, and PS5.

Forza Horizon 5 Revs Up for November Release Date https://www.gameskinny.com/8va2s/forza-horizon-5-revs-up-for-november-release-date https://www.gameskinny.com/8va2s/forza-horizon-5-revs-up-for-november-release-date Mon, 14 Jun 2021 17:17:56 -0400 Jonathan Moore

Racing game Forza Horizon 5 is on track for a 2021 release date. Developer Playground Games and publisher Microsoft officially announced the game during the E3 2021 Xbox/Bethesda showcase, confirming that it will take to the track on November 9 for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. It will be available on Game Pass day one. 

The announcement trailer showcases in-game 4K footage of the game's tracks and environments in stunning detail. Racing games have always been litmus for the graphical power of any "next-gen" console, and Forza Horizon 5 continues that tradition. The game's photorealistic backdrops highlight the diverse environments through which players will race. 

Forza Horizon 5 is set in Mexico, bringing the number of countries featured in the series so far to six. And it's perhaps the most realized location so far, and not because of the game's expert use of photogrammetry and ray tracing that renders environments in such great detail. The Playground Games team has worked to "authentically" recreate the game's locations, even going so far as to add incredible street art from artists like Farid Rueda

The varied environments include jungles, deserts, "sea-side" villages, volcanoes, stadiums, and much more.   

Aside from its multiplayer modes, which make use of the franchise's Horizon Live service and Forza Link to help players find and play with other racers, Forza Horizon 5 also features a single-player mode called Expeditions. This exploration mode sees players scouting out locations "for the festival to expand" to. 

Playground Games unveiled the Events Lab, which allows players to create their own races and game modes. The gameplay trailer shows players racing through a stadium full of bowling pins, obstacles, launch pads, and more. It's unclear exactly how robust this game mode will be, but it certainly looks very compelling. 

There's sure to be even more information on Forza Horizon 5 in the months leading up to launch this November, so stay tuned. For an even deeper dive into the game, consider heading over to the official Forza YouTube, where Playground Games' Creative Director Mike Brown and Associate Art Director Conar Cross talk more about all things Forza Horizon 5

Rainbow Six Extraction Gameplay Deep Dive and Release Date Revealed https://www.gameskinny.com/vg35u/rainbow-six-extraction-gameplay-deep-dive-and-release-date-revealed https://www.gameskinny.com/vg35u/rainbow-six-extraction-gameplay-deep-dive-and-release-date-revealed Sat, 12 Jun 2021 21:22:30 -0400 Aaron Bayne

If Rainbow Six fans were looking forward to shooting up aliens as their favorite operators, they were treated to an in-depth look at the upcoming Rainbow Six Extraction during Ubisoft Forward during E3 2021. Highlights including a cavalcade of information about the upcoming shooter, but also a first look at the game in action. 

The tactical co-op shooter, which can be played solo or with two other players, essentially functions as a fully-fledged edition of the Rainbow Six Siege Outbreak mode, which briefly blessed Siege as a limited-time event a few years ago. However, as per the gameplay released during the E3 presentation, Extraction is set to be a vast expansion on that premise.

Showing off the mechanics at play, as well as the varied enemy types, the trailer confirms that Extraction blends tactical stealth-based shooting with a high-tension sci-fi setting. With familiar operators filling up three-person squads, operator abilities already look to keep gameplay as fresh and interesting as in Siege. And that doesn't take into account the differently skilled Archæan, which range from common Grunts to slime traveling Tormentors. 

A cinematic accompanied the gameplay deep-dive, seen below, detailing the overall story premise of Extraction. With what seems to be an asteroid-based alien invasion, the Archæan have taken over various locations across the world and your special REACT unit (spearheaded by operator Ash) is tasked with saving one of your own that has been captured. 

According to a blog posted to the Ubisoft website after the event, Rainbow Six Extraction will have 18 operators to choose from; as of this writing, Ubisoft has revealed Finka, Pulse, Doc, Sledge, Alibi, Hibana, Ela, and Lion. There will also be 12 maps that feature "procedurally generated challenges." Operators can also be "lost" during missions, forcing players to mount rescue missions to get the operators back in action. 

Extraction will launch on September 16 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Google Stadia. It will feature cross play and cross save at launch. Stay tuned for more.

Challenge Dark Myths to Bring Your Loved One Back to Life in Black Book https://www.gameskinny.com/3au7x/challenge-dark-myths-to-bring-your-loved-one-back-to-life-in-black-book https://www.gameskinny.com/3au7x/challenge-dark-myths-to-bring-your-loved-one-back-to-life-in-black-book Sat, 12 Jun 2021 11:00:01 -0400 Josh Broadwell

Morteshka and Hype Train Digital are cooking up an evocative new RPG with Black Book. The "tactical, card-based RPG" follows the trainee sorceress Vasilisa on a journey to bring a loved one back from the dead, and a demo is available as part of the Xbox Summer Game Fest demo event.

Vasilisa must contend with myths and monsters from Slavic folklore as she travels across a beautiful stylized landscape. Rogues, villains, and shades block her way, but Vasilia has a few cards up her sleeve to deal with the threats.

The game features a card-based combat system, but Vasilia won't be battling alone. While the world is a fearsome place, she'll encounter plenty of friends along the way and can even recruit demons from among her foes to fight by her side.

Black Book is planned for release sometime in the third quarter of 2021 and will launch on all major platforms. Stay tuned for more as we learn it.

Summer Games Fest has kicked into full gear and Back 4 Blood, the spiritual successor to the popular zombie co op shooter Left 4 Dead, got a new, if short, gameplay trailer announcing early access open beta dates. 

The Back 4 Blood open beta will have two sessions: one for those given early access, either by pre-ordering the game or by registering at the official Back 4 Blood website, and one available to all. However, publisher Warner Bros. and developer Turtle Rock Studios say that registering does not guarantee an early access code since there are a limited number available. 

The first early access open beta lasts from August 5 to August 9, while the second portion of the beta, which is available to all players, will be from August 12 to August 16. Either portion of the beta can be played on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, or Xbox Series X|S. 

Those interested in taking part in the open beta can sign up on this page

The last look of Back 4 Blood trailer we got put a spotlight on some of the game's available characters. Before that, Turtle Rock highlighted the Back 4 Blood card system, which lets players improve character abilities and create unique builds. 

We'll soon get to see more of the zombie-slaughter-fest in action come June 13, when the game's PvP showcase for Back 4 Blood goes live during the game's E3 2021 presentation. That presentation can be seen over on the Back 4 Blood Twitch and YouTube channels, as well as Facebook. It starts at 5 p.m. EST. 

Back 4 Blood will launch on October 12 for PC, PS4, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Stay tuned for more.

Evil Dead: The Game Gameplay Trailer Gets Groovy https://www.gameskinny.com/p4bjz/evil-dead-the-game-gameplay-trailer-gets-groovy https://www.gameskinny.com/p4bjz/evil-dead-the-game-gameplay-trailer-gets-groovy Fri, 11 Jun 2021 09:29:35 -0400 David Carcasole

In what is definitely the grooviest trailer to come out of Summer Games Fest 2021 so far, developer Boss Team Games and publisher Saber Interactive have shown off the first gameplay trailer for Evil Dead: The Game. The trailer is narrated by Bruce Campbell himself, as Ash, Lord Arthur, Kelly Maxwell, and other classic Evil Dead characters give evil the business. 

Evil Dead: The Game is a co op and PvP multiplayer game that is currently set to launch sometime this year, though no specified release date was given during the gameplay reveal. It'll launch on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch when it is ready for release, and evil is sure to rue the day that happens. 

Though the trailer showed just a few of the "creative" ways you can give evil its due, the game's PvP element wouldn't be PvP without someone on the other side. You'll be able to take control of the kandarian demon, and use that power to put those no-good do-gooders in their place, so you can keep being evil in peace. 

You'll be putting a stop to evil or causing it with the iconic sights of the Evil Dead universe and using over 25 different weapons across your evil-smashing adventures. Stay tuned for more on Evil Dead: The Game as we learn it.

Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodhunt Bares Its Fangs in Announcement Trailer https://www.gameskinny.com/u6wu3/vampire-the-masquerade-bloodhunt-bares-its-fangs-in-announcement-trailer https://www.gameskinny.com/u6wu3/vampire-the-masquerade-bloodhunt-bares-its-fangs-in-announcement-trailer Thu, 10 Jun 2021 23:43:50 -0400 Jonathan Moore

With 2019's Vampire: The Masquerade — Coteries of New York, a handful of recent and upcoming interactive fiction games, and, of course, next year's Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2, the blood-sucking side of the World of Darkness video game universe is quickly expanding. Late last year, developer Sharkmob teased a unique take on that universe: a battle royale title. 

At the time, we didn't know what the game would be called or very much else about it. But during the Summer Game Fest 2021 kickoff event, Sharkmob released the game's first trailer (seen below), as well as its name: Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodhunt

Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodhunt will release sometime later this year on PC, though a firm date hasn't yet been provided by Sharkmob. It will be a free-to-play game and include premium cosmetics. The official Bloodhunt FAQ says that these items won't be "pay-to-win."

Matches will reportedly be a mix of real players and AI-controlled combatants. Sharkmob says that "45 players will be able to compete in each game session."

The third-person battle royale game takes place in Prague's Old Town as vampire factions vie for control of the city. Those familiar with the Vampire: The Masquerade collection of games will recognize Prague as a setting in 2000's Vampire: The Masquerade — Redemption, though in a completely different century. 

The announcement trailer shows that players will have access to a variety of "ranged and melee weapons," as well as powers and abilities, such as teleportation. 

Sharkmob also revealed that Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodhunt will have a closed alpha test starting on July 2. The alpha is limited to PC players. Those interested in participating can get a chance to join the masquerade over on the game's official website

There's still a lot we don't know about Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodhunt, but stay tuned for more as we learn it.

Elden Ring Gameplay Trailer Revealed at Summer Game Fest, Gets 2022 Release Date https://www.gameskinny.com/vtgu1/elden-ring-gameplay-trailer-revealed-at-summer-game-fest-gets-2022-release-date https://www.gameskinny.com/vtgu1/elden-ring-gameplay-trailer-revealed-at-summer-game-fest-gets-2022-release-date Thu, 10 Jun 2021 19:23:44 -0400 Jonathan Moore

Praise the sun; the day has finally arrived. After years of waiting, FromSoftware fans got their first real look at the developer's upcoming action RPG, Elden Ring, during the first day of the Summer Game Fest. In addition, the Elden Ring release date was also revealed. The game will launch on January 21, 2022, for PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. 

Publisher Bandai Namco released a nearly 3-minute long gameplay trailer, seen below, that showcases a dark world full of swords and sorcery known as the Lands Between.

The trailer shows the game in action and provided the first few morsels of story, highlighting the journey of "a lowly Tarnished" searching for the titular elden ring. Of course, fire, light, and darkness also play key roles, all three of which have been long staples of FromSoftware titles. 

Much of what's shown will certainly be familiar to Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, and Bloodborne fans. While the world looks much more open than anything found in those games — Bandai Namco said that it "features vast, fantastical landscapes and shadowy, complex dungeons that are connected seamlessly" — combat bears a striking resemblance to previous From games, something sure to excite fans.

The trailer also shows players working with and against each other a la other games in the larger Souls-verse.

We know from the publisher that there will be several different biomes in Elden Ring, at the very least, according to a provided fact sheet. Those include "grassy plains, suffocating swamps, spiraling mountains, and foreboding castles..." Aside from that, a subsequent blog post confirmed that the game will have a day/night cycle and some type of weather system. 

Perhaps most apparent to Souls fans is the inclusion of a horse. It's been rumored that Elden Ring would include mounts of some type, but the gameplay trailer confirmed that. The mount is not only used for travel or traversal, either. The trailer does hint that it can be used in combat as well, attacking enemies and bosses from horseback. 

The fact sheet shared by Bandai Namco following the reveal also confirmed that Elden Ring will have a free upgrade from PS4 to PS5, and that Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S will use SmartDelivery. 

Elden Ring was announced at E3 2019, but following that reveal, both From Software and Bandai Namco went silent. As a joint venture between Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki and Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin, the project immediately gained widespread attention.

Having a penchant for digging into deep, often oblique lore, some Souls fans turned Elden Ring fans even began writing their own narrative, creating their own art, and making a concept game

Now, it seems, barring any hiccups, the wait for the official game is almost over. Stay tuned for more on Elden Ring as we learn it.

Battlefield 2042 Revealed, Coming This October https://www.gameskinny.com/e2x4n/battlefield-2042-revealed-coming-this-october https://www.gameskinny.com/e2x4n/battlefield-2042-revealed-coming-this-october Wed, 09 Jun 2021 17:23:56 -0400 Jonathan Moore

As expected, Electronic Arts has revealed the next entry in the Battlefield franchise during a recent live stream event. Battlefield 2042 (not to be confused with the 2006 title, Battlefield 2142) will release on October 22 for PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. 

Unlike every Battlefield game going back for the past 15 years, Battlefield 2042 will not have a single-player campaign. Instead, it will focus on multiplayer completely, harkening back to the first three games in the series. However, it will not have a battle royale component. At least at launch and as of this writing. 

Multiplayer will feature 128 players on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. Player counts will be limited to 64 on PS4 and Xbox One. 

EA and DICE released a 5-minute in-engine cinematic trailer during the live stream event. That trailer can be seen at the top of this article. It shows a number of frenetic engagements across a wide variety of locales, many of which are presumably indicative of the types of maps found in the final game.

There are already quite a few previews out on the new Battlefield, many of which, including this one from Eurogamer, point out that there will be ways to influence moment-to-moment match gameplay. These variables seem to be baked into the maps, such as the rocket launch mentioned by Eurogamer, or the storms and tornadoes seen in the trailer and mentioned by Game Informer

All in all, it does appear the next Battlefield will embrace the "all out warfare" moniker EA's ascribed to during its development. DICE General Manager Oskar Gabrielson said in April:

I can tell you it is a bold step. It has everything we love about Battlefield – and takes all of it to the next level. Epic scale. All-out military warfare. Crazy, unexpected moments. Game-changing destruction. Massive battles, packed with more players and mayhem than ever before. All brought to life with the power of next-gen consoles and PCs.

Right now, it's unclear how many modes Battlefield 2042 will have once it launches, though a press release regarding the reveal mentioned Conquest, Breakthrough, and Hazard Zone modes, the latter of which is "an all-new, high-stakes squad-based game-type." EA said it's "different" than the other two modes mentioned, but they didn't elaborate just yet. There is a fourth game mode in the works, only described as a "love letter to Battlefield fans." 

The end of the Battlefield 2042 cinematic reveal trailer said that fans can expect a gameplay reveal on June 13, which just so happens to fall directly during E3 2021. Even though the developer and publisher isn't officially taking part in E3, it seems they'll hold some type of live stream anyway. 

Battlefield 2042 can be pre ordered now on Origin, Steam, the PlayStation Store, and the Microsoft store. It's also available physically through Amazon and other physical retailers. 

There are three versions available, though they retail for different prices depending on the platform they're purchased for. 

  • Standard Edition
    • $59.99 (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
    • $69.99 (PS5 and Xbox Series X|S)
  • Gold Edition
    • $89.99 (PC)
    • $99.99 (Console)
  • Ultimate Edition
    • $109.99 (PC)
    • $119.99 (Console)

As is usual, there will be a 10-hour EA Play members-only trial ahead of launch, starting on October 15. Those who sub to EA Play and/or pre order Battlefield 2042 ahead of launch will also gain access to the Battlefield 2042 beta, though specific dates and times haven't yet been shared. 

Stay tuned for more on Battlefield 2042 as we learn it.

New 2D Action-Adventure Metroidvania Elderand Announced https://www.gameskinny.com/sk6r1/new-2d-action-adventure-metroidvania-elderand-announced https://www.gameskinny.com/sk6r1/new-2d-action-adventure-metroidvania-elderand-announced Mon, 07 Jun 2021 17:29:54 -0400 David Carcasole

"Elderand is a love letter to classic Metroidvania games that allows players to forge their own paths." That's how publisher Graffiti Games and developer Mantra describe their upcoming action RPG slated to come to PC and consoles in 2022. Currently, there is no information on which consoles the game will launch. 

Elderand features what currently looks to be an incredible pixel-art style. The gameplay trailer released by Graffiti and Mantra shows brutal combat and, what the publisher and developer call, a deep character customization system through which players create a character unique to their preferences and playstyle.

We'll have to wait and see, but the trailer has our attention. You can see it below. 

According to the publisher and developer, Elderand is built around skill-based combat that rewards timing and positioning in each fight. Players can upgrade attributes such as strength, dexterity, and wisdom, and equip items that buff or debuff others, such as attack power and critical chance. 

Of course, there are plenty of enemies and bosses to kill with swords, whips, bows, and spells, and the game also features a Lovecraftian-inspired story and art style. For fans that enjoy filling their pockets with loot, there's plenty of that, too. 

Stay tuned for more on Elderand as we approach its 2022 release window.

This isn't the first footage of Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall, but it's the best look at the game to date. 

"We're very excited to show off a small slice of what we've been working on for over a year," said Aleksander Caban, Carbon Studios Co-Founder. "We know you are eager for a first look at gameplay footage from Tempestfall, and we look forward to seeing your reactions."

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall is set to release later this summer for Oculus Quest and Steam VR.

Hood: Outlaws & Legends from developer Sumo Digital and publisher Focus Home Interactive is due out for release in May, and the game's latest gameplay trailer gives a full, in-depth overview of the different classes players will be able to choose at launch. Sumo and Focus have previously released individual class trailers, but this goes a bit further. 

The trailer takes an in-depth look at the different ways the classes can be used in Hood: Outlaws & Legends, as each has its own key strategic value in pulling off challenging heists. 

The four main classes players can choose from are the Ranger, Brawler, Mystic, and Hunter. They have unique abilities and perks that allow players to make many different builds that suit their playstyle. Some abilities allow for quick, life-saving decisions, while others are crucial for executing well-thought-out plans through solid player communication with a thorough ping system. 

Hood: Outlaws & Legends is a co-op/competitive PvE online game where two teams of four race against each other to be the first to the treasure. Along the way, they'll have to work together to avoid both the enemy team and the Sherriff and his men. 

Hood: Outlaws & Legends releases on Xbox and PlayStation consoles and PC on May 10, though if you're keen to get in on the action, you can pre-order now to gain access to the game on May 7.

New Trailer for The Lost Child Highlights Astrals https://www.gameskinny.com/zm9xt/new-trailer-for-the-lost-child-highlights-astrals https://www.gameskinny.com/zm9xt/new-trailer-for-the-lost-child-highlights-astrals Thu, 12 Apr 2018 11:41:42 -0400 Erroll Maas

NIS America released a new trailer for Kadokawa Games' upcoming monster-catching RPG, The Lost Child. This trailer focuses on Astrals -- a collective term for obtainable demons, fallen angels, and angels --  that main character Hayato Ibiki will be capturing and fighting alongside and against.

Although capturing Astrals puts them in Hayato's possession, it seems more has to be done before they can be considered allies. After capturing them, Hayato will have to purify each Astral in order to use them in battle. Although it's unclear just how many Astrals can be in Hayato's party at one time, from the trailer, we can see that he will be able to command at least three at a time in battle. Additionally, the trailer also shows how Astrals can go through "EVILution" to become stronger with the proper requirements and how skills can be transferred from one Astral to another.

The Lost Child will launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo Switch on June 19, 2018.

Additionally, the new anime series of the same name and based on the game was announced to premiere globally on April 6, 2018.

Inazuma Eleven Ares will launch for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android in Summer 2018 in Japan. It is currently unknown if the game will release outside of Japan.

If the game does release outside of Japan, it will be the first in the series to release in Europe since the two-version game, Inazuma Eleven GO Chrono Stones: Wildfire and Inazuma Eleven GO Chrono Stones: Thunderflash, which released on March 27, 2015. It would also be the first in the series to release in North America since the enhanced Nintendo 3DS version of Inazuma Eleven, which released on the Nintendo 3DS eShop on February 13, 2014, and at this time is the only game in the series to see a North American release.

If Inazuma Eleven Ares doesn't see a release outside of Japan, interested fans will still be able to play the game due to both the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch being region-free, although it would likely only have Japanese language support.

Injustice 2 Reveals Black Canary as Playable Character https://www.gameskinny.com/zmepy/injustice-2-reveals-black-canary-as-playable-character https://www.gameskinny.com/zmepy/injustice-2-reveals-black-canary-as-playable-character Thu, 02 Feb 2017 12:48:48 -0500 Jeffrey Rousseau

Today, NetherRealm studios revealed Black Canary as a playable character for its upcoming game Injustice 2. A new gameplay trailer releases alongside the announcement showcases this metahuman heroine's abilities and powers. 

Fans of the CW show Arrow will recognize this character, and her addition to the game continues to acknowledge the popularity of the DC superhero dramas. Black Canary (aka Laurel Lance) is a vigilante from Starcity who's known to fight street level crime. She is also recognized as one of the best hand-to-hand combatants among heroes. She posses the power to generate ultrasonic vibrations whenever she screams, which can damage both organic and inorganic objects. This is known as the Canary Cry, and it's used as her ultimate move in the teaser trailer. 

In both comics and TV over the years, Black Canary has also served as a mentor to younger heroes. The trailer also makes a nod to that fact, as she speaks to Jamie Reyes aka Blue Beetle.

Fans of fighting games, DC comics, and DC TV/film can look forward to Injustice 2's release this May.

The debut Quake Champions Gameplay Trailer shows the explosive rocket jumps we all know and love https://www.gameskinny.com/sgblq/the-debut-quake-champions-gameplay-trailer-shows-the-explosive-rocket-jumps-we-all-know-and-love https://www.gameskinny.com/sgblq/the-debut-quake-champions-gameplay-trailer-shows-the-explosive-rocket-jumps-we-all-know-and-love Sat, 06 Aug 2016 16:08:45 -0400 Mohamad Yehea Aldandashi

The new Quake Champions debut trailer is here. It is a little bit short for a gameplay trailer, but it shows the speed, the rocket jumps, and the Quake weapons we want and love.

The trailer also shows some of the maps, and a new feature in the Quake franchise, the character skills. The framerates will be unlocked. That's  very good news for all high end PC owners out there.

 

id Software made a really good comeback for the Quake games, but it's still a trailer and we can't judge based on it.

Lately, a lot of the videos on Bethesda Softworks' YouTube channel are getting a ton of dislikes, because of the delay for mods on the PS4, but surprisingly the Quake Champions trailer is getting more love than the other videos, and that's a good sign.

Are you excited for the new Quake game? well, I am!

Albion Online makes the jump to closed beta, but only for those who can pay the piper https://www.gameskinny.com/k79hj/albion-online-makes-the-jump-to-closed-beta-but-only-for-those-who-can-pay-the-piper https://www.gameskinny.com/k79hj/albion-online-makes-the-jump-to-closed-beta-but-only-for-those-who-can-pay-the-piper Tue, 02 Aug 2016 04:45:10 -0400 Jenifyr Kaiser

Sandbox Interactive announced this week that they will be moving Albion Online into the "Final Beta". The game's servers have been wiped and the roughly 160K founding players will be starting over from scratch. Only founders will be allowed into the beta though, so bring your wallet if you want to play. 

Albion Online is an MMORPG that has more in common with Eve Online than World of Warcraft. The economy is entirely player driven, so if a player wants the best sword in the game she will need to find the best blacksmith in the world to buy it from. If a player wants to mine for ore and transport it across the lands, they are free to do so, but they will face off against player bandits and opposing guilds. 

Quite a few changes have been made to the game as a result of the alpha testing. They have added two huge new worlds to explore -- The Royal Islands, and The Outlands. Each of these areas will also have new biomes including swamps, mountains, and steppes. The developers have also added Artifact Items to help keep players competitive while they roam the lands seeking glory and riches.

Guild game play has been revamped as well including Guild Vs. Guild combat. They have also added a new "Crime and Reputation" system that should help to keep players honest. Reputation will play a huge part in how the world reacts to and treats the players, so those who decide to turn to a life of crime will suffer real consequences.

The beta went live on August 1st. Legendary Founders will have access immediately, while Epic Founders will have to wait a day. Veteran founders, the lowest of the founder tiers, will have access on August 3rd. The price of entry isn't cheap, with the Veteran Founder's pack coming in at $29.95 and the Legendary Founders pack a whopping $99.95. But if you would like to get in on the beta, check out the official website for all the juicy details.

New gameplay trailer released for Harvest Moon Skytree Village https://www.gameskinny.com/vnjh4/new-gameplay-trailer-released-for-harvest-moon-skytree-village https://www.gameskinny.com/vnjh4/new-gameplay-trailer-released-for-harvest-moon-skytree-village Tue, 14 Jun 2016 12:27:01 -0400 Jenifyr Kaiser

Natsume released a new gameplay trailer for Harvest Moon Skytree Village at E3 this week. Although somewhat overshadowed by some of the more popular franchises, it is nevertheless an exciting release for fans of the series. In the trailer we see a little of the storyline and new gameplay mechanics of the upcoming title. We also finally find out what resources a Poitou donkey produces. (It's hair, by the way, for those of us dying to know.)

The game will feature an all-new storyline, new townsfolk to befriend, and new crops and flowers to plant. It also features a new fishing mechanic that allows players to fish from boats. Natsume is also introducing  a new feature in this version that we've never seen before. Players will be able to mold and sculpt the land on and around their farm.

Harvest Moon Skytree Village is on display at the Natsume booth at E3 this week. No word on a release date for the game yet, but hopefully 3DS players will be farming their way to fun and fortune very soon.

Monster Hunter Generations: Watch a team style on the electric wyvern of the Fated Four https://www.gameskinny.com/8bvc0/monster-hunter-generations-watch-a-team-style-on-the-electric-wyvern-of-the-fated-four https://www.gameskinny.com/8bvc0/monster-hunter-generations-watch-a-team-style-on-the-electric-wyvern-of-the-fated-four Sun, 12 Jun 2016 05:43:09 -0400 FlameKurosei

A new gameplay trailer came out yesterday for Monster Hunter Generations, demonstrating one of the title's new flagship monsters, the Astalos. The game is set to release this summer on July 15th, exclusively for Nintendo 3DS handhelds. In this clip, Associate Online/Community Specialist Yuri Araujo and his fellow Capcom crew members attempt to take down the electric wyvern while demonstrating new and updated techniques.

For example, mounting in MHGen has changed to be more team-focused. Previously in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, the mounting mechanic was introduced where if a player lands a few jumping hits, they can launch themselves on top of the monster and attempt to make it fall by succeeding in a mounting mini-game.

In the mini-game, the player holds on to the monster and tries to stab its back to increase the bar, but if the little dragon head icon exceeds the bar, the player gets thrown off instead. If the bar maxes out, then the monster falls, and everyone else capitalizes on a free opening.

Mounting can be a difficult challenge for the more aggressive varieties...

The main complaint about the mounting mechanic was that a player could be tossed off if the monster was damaged in any way, especially if a teammate decided to give the beastie a few more swings. This meant when a hunter mounts in MH4U, the other party members have to stand around and wait for the mini-game to finish. 

Mounts only take a few seconds to complete (or fail), but it's still a disruption of team synergy. In Monster Hunter Generations, the mounting mechanic has been updated so that the other members can attack and help the mounted player take the monster down. To balance this, the mounting bar also takes longer to fill, encouraging team members to help quicken the throw down. It still takes a few seconds to do, but now instead of standing around, players can join in on the mounting fun. How's that for teamwork?

Check out more details in the gameplay video here:

For those unaware, Monster Hunter Generations is a hunting action game developed by Capcom. It was released in Japan last year as Monster Hunter X. The game is set to release internationally this summer, along with a confirmed spot in Nintendo's E3 coverage on Tuesday June 14th.
