E3 Snatch: Dreadnought, Driveclub, A Billion Trailers And Austin Wintory

No waffle and intro today as there is so much to get through, starting with Dreadnought, an upcoming aerial armada action game with a distinct sci-fi look and intense, tactical feel. The game is being developed by Yager and players wil take command of massive capital ships. The game includes competitive and cooperative multiplayer suite and an episodic, single-player, story-driven campaign. No formats have been revealed so it may be PC only.

This is a trailer for the new Intercept DLC for Killzone Shadow Fall in which four players are placed on an elite VSA team operating behind enemy lines on a mission to intercept and relay Helghast military transmissions.

Unsurprising news of the day: Mortal Kombat X runs at 1080p and 60 FPS.

The Destiny E3 trailer is finally available, beta starts on July 17 on PlayStation and you can register here.

Bonkers news of the day: The PS4 version of Diablo III will feature an exclusive dungeon packed full of clickers, the monsters from The Last of Us.

Game of Thrones has influenced Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. “TV is telling better stories than movies right now,” said Sledgehammer’s Glen Schofield.

Halo 2 Anniversary campaign gameplay? Step this way sir.

Forza Horizon 2 gameplay, featuring cars and racing and yes I’ve run out things to say.

Ubisoft are sitting on a number of completed games for the Wii U but will not release them until more consoles are sold.

“We’ll have Watch Dogs. We have another couple of products that we are waiting to launch, specifically we have one game that we wait for the machine to be more mass market to launch,” said Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot. “We have a game that has been done for six months. It’s on the shelf, waiting for more families to have the console.”

“We need the sales to increase so it becomes more and more mass market then we will have the volume that will justify massive marketing and TV marketing,” he added.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse is coming to both last and next gen consoles, check out the trailer.

Cuphead is coming to Xbox One and sports a unique visual style.

Driveclub barely featured during the Sony E3 presentation so here is a brand new trailer.

A sizzle trailer for all the lovely games coming to PlayStation Vita.

Still here? Then you be pleased to know that Rogue Legacy will be Cross-Buy and Cross-Save across all three Sony platforms.

Magicka 2 is coming to PC and PlayStation 4, no love for the Xboxers.

And finally, rather than something frivolous, please watch the video from Journey composer Austin Wintory. He is facing a $50,000 fine from his own union, The American Federation of Musicians, for recording a soundtrack to a game.


  1. Horizon 2, clubs with, what was it? a thousand members?

    Dive Club, clubs with, uh, 6.


    and i just love the art style of Cuphead.

    and ubisoft.

    won’t release the games unless the console sells more, but the console isn’t selling well because there aren’t enough games.

    i’m pretty sure Watchdogs would sell a few systems.

    i could understand not beginning development on games for a system that’s not doing well, but if they’re sitting there made and ready to go, why not bloody release them?

    and do it now while hype for Watch Dogs is still pretty high, not a year or two down the road when people have forgotten about it.

    i don’t know much about big business, but i can’t imagine sitting on a product you spent millions making is a good idea.
    in fact it seems downright stupid to me.

  2. Quite frankly Sony are idiots. ‘Greatness awaits’ – PS Vita trailer, really? I don’t see any greatness in a whorde or indie and JRPG games. I like those games, but I don’t want the damn console to be all about them.

    Xbox One is now awkwardly looking tempting as Forza Horizon and Halo Collection look stunning (and I’d really like to play them). Then again so does Wii U with the new Zelda game and Splatoon. Then PS4 doesn’t look very tempting at all now. Not trolling or anything, but Wii U and Xbox One just seem to offer something different at the moment. I’m in the mood for something different. I’ve played most of the upcoming PS4 games in their older iterations/versions/releases etc.

  3. I can’t wait to find out more about Dreadnought, from what I’ve read on their facebook page, I think it’s a F2P PC game. It could be an interesting smaller scale EVE/Star Citizen kinda game, but after Spec Ops The Line, I’m excited for whatever Yager make.

  4. I can’t watch the videos here at work but i’m looking forward to seeing some of the new weather effects in Drive Club.

  5. Cuphead looks great. Gutted it’s not PS4. Did WiiU get a price cut btw? Also, saw a TSA quote on BBC news. Was about Valiant Hearts.
