Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is due to be released on October 23 on Xbox One and Playstation 4, and on November 19 on PC.

Crowdfunding campaign launched for tactical RPG The Dwarves

Following its début at Gamescom in August, KING Art Games looks to the gaming community to get The Dwarves completed.

KING Art Games’ Creative Director Jan Theysen:

Both of our previous crowdfunding campaigns have been a great experience for us. We could make the games the way we’ve envisioned them, and are sure that the final games were improved due to the early community feedback. So for us it’s a no-brainer to go to Kickstarter once more. If you want more beer, beards and battles in your life, The Dwarves is the game for you.

Based on the Markus Heitz bestselling fantasy novel, of the same name, players will follow the story of Tungdil Goldhand, a young dwarf raised among humans, who embarks on an epic journey to find his true origin.

Throughout his journey, Tungdil will encounter up to 12 companions, all with their own individual skills and backstory, who can join him on his quest. Such as furious dwarf twins, Boindil and Boendal, who have fought in hundreds of battles. Or the more unusual Rodario, a human actor, who is a weak fighter, but can masquerade himself to catch his opponents by surprise.

The Dwarves features an unprecedented physics-based real-time combat system, and will pit heroes against huge hordes of enemies across 200 locations. Facing enemy troops, completing varied quests, and speaking to numerous NPCs, players will get to experience the world and its rich history.

The Dwarves is currently in development for Xbox One, PC, and Playstation 4. If you wish to back The Dwarves, you can visit the Kickstarter page, here.

Latest gameplay video for Blood Bowl 2

The latest gameplay video from Cyanide Studio’s upcoming Blood Bowl 2 features two diametrically opposed teams face-off against each in Games Workshop’s violent American football adaptation.

Featuring the slow, but compact and well-armoured Dwarfs, against the less than tough, but agile and fast Skaven, players can see just what to expect with Blood Bowl 2.

Blood Bowl 2 brings together the classic Warhammer turn-based gameplay, and the competitive nature of American football, resulting in an explosive mix of strategy, humour, and brutality.

With a brand new graphics engine, and bringing the fury of Blood Bowl to life, players can lead the Reikland Reavers in an original solo story campaign, and enjoy a host of multiplayer modes.

Blood Bowl 2 is due to release on Xbox One, PC, and Playstation 4 on September 22, and those who choose to preorder will also receive one of two additional races (Wood Elves, or Lizardmen).

The post-apocalyptic wasteland awaits Mad Max

Rather than rest on the typical movie-tie, Mad Max the video game is an original story created by Avalanche Studios. This doesn’t mean there are no ties with the recent film – vehicles play a huge part to the game – and that means there’s plenty of vehicle combat and heaps of customisation options.

 

Max, playing the hard done-by character once again, loses his iconic Interceptor (again) when it is stolen from him – together with a War Boy who latches on to Max, they build the ultimate vehicle using scrap and car parts that they ‘take’ from others who might dare cross their path.

NUK3TOWN gets futuristic with Black Ops 3

Nuketown is a fan favourite… or is that a favourite of the Call of Duty developers – they sure do like to rerelease this map as a pre-order bonus!

NUK3TOWN-BLOPS3

This time however Nuketown has been renamed (in caps and a number) to NUK3TOWN. Instead of just dusting off the original with slight tweaks, the new pre-order bonus map has received a futuristic graphic skin and tweaks to its design so that it makes full use of Black Ops 3’s new momentum-based, chained-movement system.

Surely you guys are getting a little tired of Nuketown now?
