Outcast – Second Contact gets its debut trailer

Outcast – Second Contact is a complete remake of a classic and has been given the 3D open world treatment, bringing the game bang up to date to be played on modern machines. The video gives a quick overview into the wild landscapes of the planet Adelpha, a bewitching world as beautiful as it is dangerous, and the cradle of an advanced alien civilization. You take the role of Cuttter Slade, ex-Navy SEAL, in an open, lush and living world where all choices have consequences on the balance of the world.

The story:
In the near future, humanity has discovered it is not alone in the universe, or rather universes. Alas, the first contact with intelligent beings turns disastrous when a probe sent by the US government is destroyed by the natives of a world called Adelpha. The incident creates an energy cataclysm which threatens to destroy the Earth. You are Cutter Slade, a former elite soldier sent on a mission to Adelpha to prevent this catastrophe.

Outcast – Second Contact will be available this Autumn on Xbox One and PC.

Destiny 2 officially announced, coming this September

Surprise! Well, not really, Destiny 2 will be released on September 8 this year.

As we promised yesterday, we would post today’s trailer as soon as we could, so here you go:

Here is Bungie’s description of the game:

Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.

Who is excited? We are!

Thimbleweed Park is out today

Way back in November 2014 a Kickstarter campaign was launched to get Thimbleweed Park off the starting blocks and into development,  achieving its target was no problem and has finally been released to the masses. Thimbleweed Park is a Mystery game that has a distinct similarity to the X Files, but I’ll let you be the judge of that, check the trailer out below.

Description

Welcome to Thimbleweed Park. Population: 80 nutcases.

A haunted hotel, an abandoned circus, a burnt-out pillow factory, a dead body pixelating under the bridge, toilets that run on vacuum tubes… you’ve never visited a place like this before.

Five people with nothing in common have been drawn to this rundown, forgotten town. They don’t know it yet, but they are all deeply connected. And they’re being watched.

In a town like Thimbleweed Park, a dead body is the least of your problems.

Features

• From Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, creators of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion.
• A neo-noir mystery set in 1987.
• 5 playable characters who can work together… or get on each other’s nerves.
• Not a walking simulator!
• Satisfying puzzles intertwined with a twisty-turny story that will stay with you.
• A vast, bizarre world to explore at your own pace.
• A joke every 2 minutes… guaranteed!*
• Casual and Hard modes with varied difficulty.
• English voices with English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish subtitles.

*Not a guarantee.

Thimbleweed Park is on the Xbox Store now, should you wish you could always download the soundtrack HERE for a small fee.
