If this trailer is anything to go by, the multiplayer is going to be insane. You can play as either the Rebels or the Empire, and it’s basically a huge, all-out war. The perspective switches between soldiers on foot to pilots in X-Wings and even Luke and Darth Vader as playable characters. I am very excited for this game now.
Here is an intriguing trailer shown at today’s Oculus presentation for an Oculus Rift game called Chronos. It’s about a labyrinth that only opens once a year, and the game takes place over the course of the life of a man who makes several attempts to finish it. His age has an effect on his abilities–for instance, when he is young, he is stronger and faster, but when he is old, he must rely more on his wit and magic. I must say it looks really pretty, and I’d be impressed if they managed to get this to run at the required 90 frames per second. I’m also not entirely sure how third-person would work in VR, but perhaps that’s because I’ve never actually put on the headset. (Though I can’t wait to get my hands on one!)
War. War never changes. (But it looks a heck of a lot better!)
This trailer put a smile on my face, not just for the gorgeous art style but also for the sense of adventure that it invoked. It looks like a love letter to the Zelda series with some Tim Burton mixed in for good measure. I can’t wait to get my hands on this game.
Here is a 9-minute gameplay video of Adr1ft, the upcoming first-person experience game set in the wreckage of a spaceship. It’s beautiful, tense, and haunting, and I can’t wait to play it. Courtesy of IGN.
Unity 5 has just been released to the public. With big improvements like physically-based shading, audio mixing, and a 64-bit editor, it looks very promising. I know I’ll be upgrading!
Some of the best-looking games coming out like Firewatch are being made in Unity 5. I’m super excited to see what people can do, and hope to start my own projects soon!
Adrift, from developer Three One Zero, is a beautiful upcoming game that has you play an astronaut drifting through the wreckage of a spacecraft and trying to figure out what happened. The developers are dubbing their game an “FPX,” or First-Person Experience, which they hope will become a new genre. All of their future games will be FPXs as well. As a fan of games like Dear Esther, I am really excited for this. If there is a reason to get an Oculus Rift, it’ll be this game.
This game looks like the video game version of Coraline and I need to play it now. From LittleBigPlanet co-developer Tarsier Studios.
The effort put into this definitely shows. Thanks Game Informer.
Okay I can already tell this is going to be the Pokemon game to end all Pokemon games.
