Electronic Arts is teasing a Battlefield 4 reveal at the Game Developers Conference on March 26 by sending out invitations to the press, telling attendees to “save the date”. The background has dark blue hues and orange words, plus some faded red and orange lights behind heavy rain. The colors remind us of the tones on Battlefield 3’s promotional box art pictures.
Battlefield 4 is said to be mind-blowing, according to GameStop’s tweet earlier last month, and […]

Ubisoft has released a new set of screenshots showcasing Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag. The developer has also announced that 40% of the gameplay will be at sea, meaning we will be seeing plenty of Jack Sparrow vs Davy Jones naval warfare action. The screenshots show exploding ships, a tropical backdrop and Edward Kenway involved in some cutthroat violence. Despite being called “cocky” and “charismatic”, Edward looks angry (or maybe tired?), a little sallow and underweight as implied […]

Not too long ago, PETA complained about Assassin’s Creed 4 that would feature harpooning whales, saying, “Whaling – that is, shooting whales with harpoons and leaving them to struggle for an hour or more before they die or are hacked apart while they are still alive – may seem like something out of the history books, but this bloody industry still goes on today in the face of international condemnation, and it’s disgraceful for any game to glorify it. PETA […]

The first screenshots of Assassin’s Creed 4 are looking incredibly impressive. Ubisoft is said to be giving the franchise a makeover to create a new experience for fans which, I say, is an excellent choice. Protagonist Edward Kenway can apparently hunt orcas, loot treasure underwater, leap onto other ships to engage in high sea battles, explore caves and plenty of other exciting and new activities. One of the pictures give us a very good look of Edward, who is donning […]

IGN has published a video featuring Irrational Games staff detailing the AI behind BioShock Infinite‘s other protagonist Elizabeth. The team behind Elizabeth’s AI dubbed the Liz Squad explain about the ridiculous amount of meticulous detail and effort put into bringing Elizabeth alive. Of course, if you’re looking to play without any knowledge about the game (in other words: “Surprise me” approach in gameplay), you should definitely skip this video and stop reading here.
Gosh, Elizabeth is such a sweetheart, as […]

Square Enix took a very different and creative approach for Tomb Raider‘s Reborn video by getting several people of different races to recite and finish each other’s words. Accompanied by dramatic music playing in the background, the action in the quick takes seem to escalate even faster with every second passed. The upcoming reboot is looking pretty good, judging by early review roundups surfacing on the internet lately. Plus, did you hear about how detailed and realistic Lara’s […]
