It has been a rather busy weekend here on TSA and a lot of news has vanished off the front page as there has been so much of it, so for one day only I shall be slipping in to the comfortable brogues of John Craven and presenting a Newsround (up).
PlayStation exclusives had a strong showing with the first gameplay for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, a new trailer and a new cinematic for The Order: 1866, and Hayden Panettiere being chased by a pschotic clown in Until Dawn which also got a short trailer from The Game Awards. Super Stardust Ultra has been announced for PlayStation 4 whilst Resogun is coming to PS3 and PS Vita and all three versions of that game will get the new Defenders expansion pack.
Probably the biggest news of the weekend was that Street Fighter V has been announced and it will be exclusive to PlayStation 4, which will also be graced with Ultra Street Fighter IV which includes all of the previous DLC. Also hitting the headlines was the announcement of a new God of War game, but we won’t be seeing that until at least 2016.
There was a new gameplay trailer for No Man’s Sky and yet another trailer that showed us portals. Unsurprisingly, MLB 15 The Show has been revealed along with new trailers for Tearaway Unfolded and Bloodborne and yet another brand new PlayStation 4 exclusive in the shape of Drawn to Death from God of War chap, David Jaffe.
Indies were present in force including a new game based of one of PlayStation’s oddest IPs, Fat Princess. Giant Sparrow revealed What Remains Of Edit Finch for 2016 and the bonkers Noby Noby Boy team have the equally bizarre Wattam in development. Also coming to PS4 is dungeon blaster Enter the Gungeon, which looks a bit like Gauntlet with guns to us oldies.
Multilpatform titles include a new King’s Quest, The Banner Saga 2, and the hotly anticipated Metal Gear Online. Tacoma is a new game from the team behind Gone Home and the Brothers: a Tale of Two Sons developers have formed a new studio, Hazelight, that is working on a new game for EA. Horses, explosions and swordfighting feature heavily in the trailer for The Witcher III: Wildhunt and ex-CoD chap, Robert Bowling revealed Human Element for PS4 and Xbox One.
Rocksteady concluded the Batman: Arkham Knight Ace Chemicals trailer trilogy and adventure fans will be pleased to know that both acts of Broken Age are coming to PS4 and PS Vita along with Day of the Tentacle Special Edition which is scheduled for PlayStation 4, Vita, PC, Mac and Linux,
Before is coming to PC whilst Adrift is scheduled for consoles, if memory serves me correctly that’s the game being created by the chap from got fired from Microsoft for telling everyone to stop whining about Xbox One being “always on”.
Dungeon Defenders II is coming to PS4 and has recently been released on Steam. Killing Floor 2, Darkest Dungeon, and Orcs Must Die are all coming to PS4 with Orcs Must Die: Unchained, Bastion, Shovel Knight, Geometry Wars: Dimensions and Severed announced for PS Vita. Shovel Knight will come with an exclusive character, Kratos from God of War.
In other news the PC version of Final Fantasy VII is coming to PlayStation 4 and Godzilla is coming to west on both PlayStation’s 3 and 4 and Nintendo managed to sneak in footage of a Wii U game, namely Legend of Zelda. There were also trailers for Battlefield Hardline, Destiny and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and Yakuza 5 will be getting a release in the west.
So in summary: Cripes that’s a lot of new games, woohoo!
