It's been quite some time since Square Enix dropped Kingdom Hearts III info, and fans might have to wait a lot longer for updates.
Square Enix promises that new Kingdom Hearts III announcements are coming "this winter", possibly hinting we won't see any KH3 news or footage at E3 2016.The publisher shared the news at the very end of the new Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 remaster trailer.
Kingdom Hearts Unchained X dev Hironori Okayama affirms that new KH3 updates will come at E3 2016, saying as much in a recent interview with The Koalition. If Okayama said it, then it's likely true, and the winter update could be a release date or new gameplay footage and info.
Ubisoft has officially breathed fresh new vivacious, raw life into the Watch Dogs franchise, culminating in a stylishly comedic open-world game that's completely different from the mournful original.
Today Ubisoft announced Watch Dogs 2, showing off a game that hardly resembles the grim, downgraded port we were given in 2014. The sequel has a distinct youthful spirit of its own, and while AIden Pearce's story left a bad taste in our collective gaming mouths, I for one am starting to get an appetite for Watch Dogs 2. From what we were shown today, Watch Dogs 2 combines a sense of youthful anarchy that sharply contrasts the serious tone of the original, and there's a distinct punkish style that seems to combine Mr. Robot with a modern hipster's style and the devil-may-care, let's-watch-the-world-burn attitude of a punk rocker.
Ubisoft has published three huge videos with pretty much everything you need to know about the game, but we have a nice bullet list of the particulars below for your perusal. Watch Dogs 2 is confirmed to release November 15, 2016 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Eidos Montreal shows off the latest gameplay footage for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, showing off a truly Orwellian future and deep, dynamic and sprawling gameplay.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided as a completely different game from Human Revolution. The world has been entirely segregated; augs are forced to live with one another, and are separated from humankind. Humanity is in a schism, and players will interact with an incredibly vivid and robust in-game world full of possibilities.
The new Pre-E3 footage showcases a ton of different things about Mankind Divided, including gameplay mechanics like the Smart Vision and FPS modes, new weapons like the Stungun, Tesla gun arm, and Nanoblade gun arm (which allows you to throw blades at enemies), aug powers like camo stealth, and just how deep the game's environments are. Players will be able to use almost every bit of their environments to their advantage for maximum tactical efficiency, and nonlethal approaches are much more rewarding this time around.
Alan Wake developer Remedy Entertainment has split into two different studio teams to work on two different games, but neither of them are Alan Wake.
In a lengthy announcement post, Remedy today revealed what's in store for its future, and Alan Wake nor Max Payne are along for the ride. The studio is working on two unique and new AAA IP's: the first one is a "brand new Remedy game with a new partner," and the second is an "early concept which will turn into a game sometime in the future." These new projects won't be unveiled any time soon, either: Remedy has confirmed it won't show anything at E3 2016 or Gamescom.
The devs were also kind enough to not get Alan Wake fans worked up. "Finally, we feel that it's important to set the expectations right and let you, the fans, know that neither of the two projects currently in development is an Alan Wake game. We're working on something else, but at the same time we're exploring opportunities in other mediums to tell more Alan Wake stories."
UK retailer lists the hotly anticipated Skyrim remaster for a November release, adding more fuel to the rumor fire.
Not so long ago we reported that Bethesda will unveil Skyrim remastered for PS4 and Xbox One will full mod support. Now UK retailer Base.com has listed the "Skyrim Definitive Edition" for a release on November 23, 2016, adding more credence of an E3 reveal.
Bethesda is also expected to reveal even more goodies at their E3 2016 showcase--as if Skyrim remastered wasn't enough--including a Wolfenstein 2 sequel from Machine Games, Prey 2, and The Evil Within 2 from Tango Gameworks. We'll likely also see even more Fallout 4 DLC (yes, there's more!) and possibly DOOM.
Bethesda's E3 2016 lineup kicks off on Sunday, June 12 at 7PM PST / 10PM EST. We'll be sure to keep you updated with all the announcements right here at TweakTown.
Injustice 2, the sequel to NetheRealm's popular fighting game Injustice Gods Among Us, has been officially announced with a new cinematic trailer.
With Injustice 2, Netherealm promises a ton of innovations including deep character customization with "unique and powerful gear" and a dynamic level-up system, a brand new original story arc that follows the original game, and a massive roster of DC characters including Supergirl. The trailer shows off some amazing-looking gear for all the combatants, including a very Batman Beyond-like armorset for Batman. The sequel will also take players across the DC universe's most iconic regions, including Metropolis, Atlantis and Gotham City.
"In Injustice 2, we are introducing new features that will change the way fans play fighting games. We're always interested in pushing the genre forward and allowing players to customize and level-up their favorite DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains is a significant leap," said NetheRealm's Ed Boon.
Square Enix today announced that Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 will release in December, and showcased a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming compilation.
The new Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 gameplay trailer shows off Aqua, one of the original Keyblade warriors, battling against the Heartless. Aqua's adventure will be told in the all-new playable Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep - A Fragmentary Passage, which acts as a direct prequel that bridges to the events of the highly anticipated Kingdom Hearts III.
"In this new trailer, experience Aqua's battle against the Heartless in KH0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-, new HD gameplay from KH Dream Drop Distance & new scenes from KHχ Back Cover that sheds light on the mysterious Foretellers!" reads the trailer's official description.
Ubisoft promised big innovations for Watch Dogs 2, and it looks like they plan to deliver: the sequel might support drop-in/drop-out online co-op.
New Google ad metadata for Watch Dogs 2 says "online singleplayer", possibly hinting the open-world game could have an expansive online co-op component. Maybe Watch Dogs 2 will allow friends to team up and complete campaign missions in co-op style, or maybe it's a limited co-op function like Assassin's Creed Unity's online co-op mode.
The possibility of online co-op is reinforced by Watch Dogs 2's leaked 30 second trailer, which clearly shows groups of Anonymous-like hacktivists that join your cause. This strongly hints that players will be able to join up and spread anarchy across the Bay Area, as the masked hacker vigilantes likely represent other random players across the globe. Online competitive multiplayer will likely also be in the mix, too, with new modes and features. All online components will be tethered to uPlay.

Earlier this morning Twitch accidentally published a thirty second trailer for Watch Dogs 2, revealing key details about the upcoming game.
Ubisoft has scrubbed almost all of the leaked Watch Dogs 2 footage off the face of the internet, but we managed to find a quick clip. All in all the footage was pretty good, and it definitely is a huge step up from the Aiden Pearce's sulky revenge tactics. I joked that Watch Dogs 2 reminds me of a punky, hip-hop hipster version of Mr. Robot, and this time around players will have a nice Anonymous-style gang to help them out.
Other leaks have revealed key details about Watch Dogs 2 including the game's San Francisco Bay Area setting, the new African-American hipster-hacktivist Marcus, and a November 15, 2016 release date on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Surprise! Watch Dogs 2 will likely come with its own season pass for DLC content.
Online retailer Amazon lists a $99 Watch Dogs 2 Gold Edition, which hints the upcoming sequel will sport its own season pass. Editions of AAA games in this price tier typically include the base game with a season pass and pre-order incentives while shaving off some $10 or so from buying the content a la carte. Based on the price I'm guessing that Watch Dogs 2 could have about 2-3 pieces of content, likely story-driven add-ons.
Although Ubisoft plans to officially unveil Watch Dogs 2 today at 12 PM EST, we already know a ton about the game thanks to a few leaks. Watch Dogs 2 takes place in San Francisco's Bay Area, it features a brand new African American hipster/punkish hacker protagonist named Marcus, and it's releasing on November 15 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
