We’re Over The Moon to see The Fall

TheFallTitle

Over The Moon Games have finally revealed the release date for their potential Flashback-buster, The Fall.

The game sees you take control of ARID, the AI on a futuristic combat suit. Your human pilot has been injured and their life hangs by a thread inside. ARID must take control of the suit and find medical help, but her rigid rules and protocols soon become her own worst enemy.

Lead developer and founder of Over The Moon, John Warner said;

At Over The Moon, we have a lot of fun playing with ideas and wanted The Fall to communicate some really good ones. Great films communicate ideas using a series of visual tools, but what can we do with the added interactivity in games? The Fall is our first answer to that question. Our goal is to create challenges that cause the player to think in specific ways to overcome them.

The game narrative is hitting nerves around the gaming community and it has already seen awards from the likes of Giant Bomb for it’s storyline.

You won’t have to wait long for The Fall. It is scheduled to hit the Xbox One on the 14th of July.

Minecraft_story_mode

MINECON was held in London this weekend, and as expected, a new trailer for Telltale Games’ Minecraft: Story Mode was shown off.

The episodic series will begin “later this year”, with voice acting from Patton Oswalt (who voices the playable protagonist Jesse), Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter,Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens – with more to come!

We’ve worked closely with the amazing team at Mojang to ensure this story is a natural fit for the Minecraft world fans already know and love. As Jesse, players will steer their own path through a tale of adventure and survival; all brought to life by an all-star cast. Through Telltale’s choice-based gameplay and a story spanning from the Nether to the Farlands, the End, and beyond, we can’t wait for fans to experience this new take on the beloved world of Minecraft.

Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games.

The interactive storytellers at Telltale are giving players the chance to explore their own unique interpretation of the Minecraft universe. They’ve crafted a story that follows the logic of Minecraft, but still manages to feel original. It’s actually pretty funny too. And the pig is adorable. We’re super excited about players digging deeper into the world of Minecraft: Story Mode later this year.

Owen Hill, Chief Word Officer at Mojang.

Batman: Arkham Knight’s first DLC announced

BatmanAKTitle

The engine has hardly had time to cool down on the Batmobile and already, it’s DLC-time. Well, nearly.

The first DLC pack has been announced for Batman: Arkham Knight and it will feature a storyline with the delectable Batgirl in it.

Called Batgirl: A Matter of Family, this DLC will be available first, to those lucky few who have purchased the Season Pass and will feature an all-new location with multiple missions, side-quests and secrets.

It will also include a new hacking feature used to progress through the world and solve puzzles. Team up with Robin for dynamic take-downs, too.

The Season Pass, while being criticised for being on the expensive side, will also let you have an exclusive Flashpoint Batman skin, access to the first six months of DLC releases early, which will see more Super-villains invading Gotham City, legendary Batmobiles, advanced challenge maps, more character skins and new drivable race tracks.

But this is all about the new Batgirl DLC.

For Season Pass owners, this will be available on the 14th of July. If you don’t own the Season Pass, you will have to wait another week, releasing to all on the 21st of July for the princely sum of £5.79 or your local currency equivalent.

Build a legend in Castles

CastlesTitle

When I was younger (oh no, here he goes again), there were some great puzzle games out. The likes of Puzznic used to keep me entertained for hours. I miss that kind of challenge with the games that are out now.

That could be about to change.

Whoot Games, a group of degree students in video game creation have created Castles that might just be something to scratch this puzzler itch.

Castles tells the story of King Harold. Harold’s greatest achievement is the tower that you are trying to build. Along the way, you’ll encounter unpredictable weather and the efforts of the jealous King Edmund to thwart your progress.

The game will feature three modes, story, survival and competitive, with single or multiplayer options. It boasts over 50 levels of randomised gameplay in story mode, meaning that you should never play the same game twice.

You control an engineer, tasked with moving the blocks on the construction board. Up for grabs are 7 different materials and 7 different tools, making several combinations. Match 3 of the same blocks of materials or tools and you’ll earn that item. Complete the set list of tasks of items to win the level. Simple, right?

Have a look at the trailer and decide for yourself.

Castles has just had it’s release date confirmed on Xbox One for the 15th of September 2015.

EastAsiaSoft find Lost Sea

LostSeaTitles

In this world of so many new games, it’s easy to overlook or miss a few when they’re announced. Back in October last year, I missed a trailer for Lost Sea. I wish I hadn’t, I’ve wasted lots of ‘being excited’ time.

Lost Sea is a 3D strategy game that is set on a procedurally generated archipelago. As ragtag survivors of a plane crash in the Bermuda Triangle, it’s up to you to lead your crew as they hunt for the necessary resources to upgrade their self-built ship and make their escape.

This cartoon B-Movie universe holds a few surprises though and our intrepid hero has to survive encounters with exotic creatures and mysterious, powerful relics in order to escape. You’ll need more than just your combat skills to survive.

The game also promises to bring you player ability and special move progression upgrades, scavenging and rescue missions, secret support totems to find and activate. You will also be able to recruit new crew members with differing abilities. This is useful to be able to forge the correct skill set for each mission. Protect your crew though, as once they’re gone, they’re lost forever.

Lost Sea is coming via the ID@Xbox program sometime between now and the end of 2015.

Milkstone Studios tease Pharaonic

PharaonicTitle

Milkstone Studios, the developers behind Ziggurat, have released a teaser trailer for their next game.

Pharaonic is a side-scrolling Role-Playing Game set in ancient Egypt. Little else is known about the game, currently undergoing Greenlight on Steam, other than the fact that Milkstone have confirmed their intentions to release on Xbox One, albeit via a reply to a YouTube comment.

On first impressions, this looks a little on the slow-side combat wise, so I’d hope Milkstone can speed it up a little on the console version.

Here’s the trailer, but at the minute, there’s no word on a release date.

F1 2015 roars in with a new trailer

f12015fi

With the British Grand Prix literally days away, it’s bound to rain, Codemasters and Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe have released a trailer to remind us all that F1 2015 will be there to pick up the pieces of your post-Grand Prix blues.

Centre-stage of this edition will be the 2015 Driver’s Championship, with a Pro Season option that will deliver a more petrol-infused experience than ever before.

Codemasters’ Lee Mather, Principal Games Designer adds,

The race weekend is more than just the in-car and on track experience. Observing your driver working with his team during practice and qualifying and listening to the new commentary that sets the scene for the race and season standings is now present for the gamer. Then seeing the busy grid before a race, with all the flavour and character of it, into the race itself, the new television style cameras and replays, and finally the iconic podium celebrations all add to that race experience. The immersion is further enhanced with the voice recognition technology available for Xbox One, allowing players to engage with their race engineer through in-game voice commands with Kinect.

Pro Season mode is billed as the ultimate challenge and sets the difficulty bar to realistic. In addition to the current full season, you can also run through the full 2014 F1 World Championship as bonus content.

F1 2015 will be roaring into stores on the 10th of July.

StrikeVectorTitle

There are a few things in life that I can really appreciate. Any jet-propelled, agile combat craft is usually one of those things.

RageQuit Corporation like this kind of aircraft too. They’ve been busy working on a console version of the PC hit, Strike Vector EX.

Strike Vector EX promises to deliver dizzying dogfights, customisable mech-inspired ships, a single-player campaign mode and fast-paced multiplayer madness.

Strike Vector EX will be heading to cause carnage on the Xbox One soon.
