Microsoft is making zombie-killing fun again.Dead Rising 4 is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 this holiday.During its media breifing before the Electronic Entertainment Expo tradeshow in Los Angeles, Microsoft and Capcom confirmed what many leaks had previously suggested — the sequel to the Xbox One launch game Dead Rising 3 from 2013 is heading back for more exclusivity love from Microsoft.While Dead Rising started as a multiplatform release in its first two iterartions, the Xbox company worked with Capcom to tie it up for the Xbox One and PC, and that paid off as the game was one of the best-sellers during 2013 s launch window.To hype up Dead Rising 4 at E3, Microsoft debuted a trailer that showed the hero of the first game, Frank West, wrecking countless zombies.As is a typical for the series, he uses insane items in creative ways to take out the hordes.Check it out:
Our first look at Disney s next animated movie, Moana, is heavy on The Rock—as Dwayne Johnson introduces us to his South Pacific Demigod Maui in spectacular style... and the magic of dancing tattoos, apparently.The trailer gives us our first look at Maui and titular hero Moana—balancing its time between an actual glimpse of the heroes in action and a gorgeously-animated 2D sequence done in the style of Maui s plethora of body tattoos.But man, some of those shots in the second half lookamazingly pretty.It s certainly going to be a fabulous looking movie.Moana hits cinemas 23rd November 2016.
Microsoft gave us a new look at ReCore during its Electronic Entertainment Expo event today in Los Angeles.ReCore is an action game starring a girl and a robot dog with a removable core that can be placed inside other machines.This includes a spider-like robot that climbs walls and an ape-like one that excels at fighting.ReCore is being produced by Keiji Inafune, who was heavily involved in the Mega Man series with Capcom before he left that company in 2010 to start Comcept.We got our first look at ReCore during Microsoft s E3 event last year.E3 is one of the biggest annual gaming events, and it usually brings plenty of new game announcements.ReCore is especially important since it is a Microsoft exclusive, scheduled to release on Xbox One and PC.Inafune s Comcept has also developed Mighty No.9, a 2D platformer inspired by Mega Man that releases on June 21.
iPhone 7 Plus BlueThe iPhone 7 won t be official for quite some time, but most leaks suggest that the final design of Apple s 2016 flagship smartphones will be strikingly similar to the iPhone 6s series.But just because the iPhone maker isn t going for a radical redesign just yet, it doesn t mean the new iPhones will be boring.Just last week, designer Martin Hajek used the latest leaked 3D renders of the iPhone 7 and schematics to create concept images of the phone, and the results were spectacular.Hajek is now back with his interpretation of a new rumor that emerged since then: The iPhone 7 will come supposedly come in a brand new blue color.DON T MISS: Intense new Game of Thrones trailer teases the war we ve been waiting forApple is said to be replacing the Space Gray version of the iPhone with a new blue one, and Hajek imagined what this color option might look like.The images feature the proposed iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in blue, and it looks pretty outstanding.
Her Empress Emily Kaldwin.At its E3 conference last night, Bethesda wowed audiences with in-game footage of Dishonored 2 that highlighted a world brought to life by Arkane's new tech, the Void engine.Dishonored 2 starts by dropping you in Dunwall 15 years after the events of Dishonored and asks you to make an important choice - do you want to play as the now adult empress Emily Kaldwin or her father, the master assassin Corvo?Soon enough you'll zap off to the new city of Karnacka, a wind-powered city that's prone to nasty dust storms which blow in and reduce visibility to near-zero.You can go and watch it, I'll wait.Emily and Corvo have unique ability sets, with Corvo's being largely the same as his abilities from the last game, whereas Emily has some more esoteric abilities like an ethereal tentacle for yanking people around the place and the ability to link enemies' destinies together to make sure they all share the same fate, whether that's death or a brief spell of unconsciousness.
The surprise announcement has gone down a storm, though the company hasn t yet dropped any specific details.The mere thought of a VR Pip-Boy is more than enough to salivate over, and then there s the entire freaking wasteland to consider.Weekends will disappear in an instant.Three new DLCs trailer above for regular Fallout 4 players have been outed too: Contraptions Workshop, Vaultec Workshop and Nuka World.All of them are coming this summer, with the former out next week, the latter out in August and Vaultec Workshop gearing up for a July release.As if that wasn t enough, Bethesda s E3 conference also teased an upcoming VR version of Doom, though neither a platform nor a release date were specified.

The gaming industry is coming together in Los Angeles to get everyone worked up about the next wave of big releases, and we re gonna start cataloging the news.Fans seem to really love the game, and it is getting a ton of new content.Bethesda is getting into the VR game with one of its biggest franchises.I think I d rather go to Disneyland.Bethesda s Hearthstone-like card game will still tell Elder Scrolls fan a story.Fallout Shelter isn t just a mobile game now.2011 s Skyrim is getting a nice upgrade for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.,Quake is coming to take a big swing at the esports market.EA is taking competitive gaming seriously, and Peter Moore is responsible for that.The first Battlefront game stuck to the Original Trilogy movies, but that will change in the sequel.EA and developer BioWare are working on the next entry in the Mass Effect series, and it looks like it is striking a different tone.EA accidentally broadcasted a rehearsal for Titanfall 2.It published the game Unraveled last year, and now it is expanding to do more of those kinds of games.EA is using Madden to start a three-pronged attack on the esports scene.ABC News revealed that publisher Ubisoft is working on a game that will simulate the action of operating a spacecraft from Star Trek.Developer Red Storm Entertainment, which author Tom Clancy founded, is making the game that will have players working together just like Picard, Worf, and William Riker.In an interview, Sony Interactive Entertainment boss Andrew House said that upgraded version of the PS4 is happening.The long-awaited sequel is also getting a special edition.One of the most exciting PS4 exclusives is coming February 28, and developer Guerrilla Games will show it off at E3.Saints Row studio Volition is expanding that open-world crime universe with something new that focuses on superheroes and class-based gameplay.Publisher Capcom isn t new to exclusivity deals it did something similar with Street Fighter V and Sony s PlayStation 4 , so this rumor seems sound.Multiple reports are claiming that Nintendo is localizing the Game Boy Advance sequel to Earthbound, which never came out in the United States.Gwent, the card game from The Witcher III, is likely getting a standalone version from developer CD Projekt Red.
The game is designed for world class e-sports play at any level, Willetts said, adding that Bethesda will be supporting and expanding competitive leagues, about which more details will be made available at Quakefest in August.Dynamic weather - clearly the gameplay feature de jour, as it also heavily featured in the games trailered by EA earlier today - were also very much in evidence, with wind power and weather puzzles both in evidence of the gameplay trailer, which takes place in a different, more southern-European-feeling city to the first game.The game will run on a custom-built engine which Bethesda is calling Void, and it certainly looks effective; especially backstopped with this kind of attention to detail in the level design.We felt compelled to ask ourselves about the history of a place or shop – watermarks on the wall from past floods, peeling posters and advertisements.Also previewed was a new game by one of Dishonored s creators, an unexpected reboot of the Prey franchise as a psychological sci-fi thriller - imagine Dishonored in space and you have a sense of the trailer.As expected, a remastered Skyrim will also be coming soon to PS4 and Xbox One, with a total visual update - and, further in the future, Bethesda also announced Sunday that Fallout 4 and Doom would be coming soon to Virtual Reality on the HTC Vive platform, with the first of those - Fallout - out in 2017.
The sequel, which was announced back at E3 2015, is set 15 years after the first Dishonored game that was released in 2012 to critical acclaim.While Dishonored 2 will bring players back to the dingy streets of Dunwall, most of the game will take place in a new setting called Karnaca - a gorgeous Mediterranean-style metropolis referred to as the "jewel of the South."Why advertise with us"Our approach to world creation is layered.Emily will show off a host of new powers including 'Domino,' which can link several targets together, allowing players to deliver some crafty multiple kills in one go.Her "Shadow Walk" ability will allow her to transform into a shadowform and sneak towards an enemy undetected before taking out her target."But this time we've put a greater emphasis on big, interesting mission themes – either from a gameplay or a fiction standpoint – making each mission a wildly unique place to explore," Smith said.
Image Source: HBOWe re just two episodes away from the conclusion of this year s Game of Thrones season, and a first trailer for episode 9 is already available, teasing what looks like the massive war that we ve been aching for.DON T MISS: This might be the most exciting and unexpected Apple announcement at WWDC 2016From the get-go, it s clear that House Stark, with a makeshift army, is about to face off with the Boltons, who seem to have the edge on the battlefield.Technically Sansa Stark is also in charge of the Stark forces, though she won t actually do any of the fighting.And Sansa is very much aware of the danger that lies ahead.The new trailer tells Game of Thrones fans that Jon Snow is pretty determined to not have to be resurrected again, suggesting two things: a that anything is on the table, including a second Snow death, no matter how unlikely that sounds, and b that HBO won t troll us again if he does die.We have no idea if the Tullys will come to Sansa s aid, if Littlefinger has received the message, or whether Catelyn Stark as Lady Stoneheart will return to the show.

Sony s E3 2016 press conference was a nonstop stampede of game announcements and gameplay footage.One of the most impressive offerings at the showcase was an eight-minute-long gameplay demo of Horizon Zero Dawn, Guerrilla Game s open-world, monster-hunting action game.E3 2016: The PlayStation VR will launch on October 13 at $400, but there s a catchThe demo opens with main character Aloy exploring the wilderness near a village before coming up on some wandering mechanical beasts.Using stealth and a multitude of tools and weapons — such as an electrically charged slingshot and explosive traps — Aloy enters into combat with the creature, harvesting parts from its metal carapace.The player runs into a distressed villager, agreeing to take on a menacing beast that has terrorized his settlement.The large world and flexible weaponry gives the sense that Horizon Zero Dawn will be a very open-ended combat experience, with a bevy of tools and strategies for players to use, and a branching story that allows for developing Aloy s personality your own way.
Titled Death Stranding, it will star The Walking Dead s Norman Reedus.In typical Kojima fashion, his trailer raised far more questions than it answered.While he developed Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Konami and Kojima had a falling out, leading to much strife and difficulty in game development.This was a big get for Sony, as Kojima s next game would be exclusive to Sony s PlayStation 4.This may be because Konami had removed Kojima s name from the box of The Phantom Pain, leaving many fans stunned.A release date was not set for Death Stranding, but considering Kojima s new studio is only six months old, it may still be far out.
Bethesda has revealed a new Quake game, Quake Champions, during its E3 2016 press conferenceFollowing the rousing success of its recent blood-filled Doom reboot, Bethesda kicked off its E3 2016 showcase by announcing the revival of another classic FPS from id Software — Quake — with an exciting new cinematic trailer.Dubbed Quake Champions, the new version will be a super-fast, arena-based multiplayer shooter for PC, "designed for people at all skill levels.""The game that defined competitive multiplayer is back."Running at a smooth 120hz with unlocked framerates, the multiplayer shooter will include high-tech weapons and a diverse roster of characters, each sporting his or her own unique attributes and abilities.Although the reveal trailer does not focus on gameplay, it does show off some of the characters we can expect to see in the new Quake, as well as a few unique skills including teleportation and thermal vision."20 years ago, Quake set new standards for multiplayer competition and pushed the boundaries for graphics and gameplay," said Willits.
Yes, the trailer for Dishonored 2 may have leaked ahead of its reveal at the Bethesda showcase here at E3, but now that it s finally, officially out there in the gaming ether, we can begin to board the hype train.Whether you ve played the original Dishonoured countless times, or are new to the whole slice-and-dice-enemies-with-swords-and-magic thing, you should definitely be excited.Dishonoured 2 lets players take control of both Corvo Attano - the first game's protagonist - and Emily Baldwin - a now-grownup Empress who'll be familiar to existing fans.The fact that both characters have different techniques, skills and moves at their disposal should help keep gameplay fresh, while allowing you to tackle problems in different ways.Emily can, for example, pull enemies closer towards her with purple psychic protrusions, aka brain grappling hooks, as we like to call them.The combat looks a slick and as fluid as ever, and the new gameplay trailer definitely had no shortage of lethal blades and killing blows.
Like other contemporary shooters Overwatch for one , Quake Champions is being pitched as an e-sports game, with promises of tournament support from the publisher.Little else was revealed about Quake Champions, including platforms PC is a given , but there was a CG teaser trailer, complete with a glimpse of character classes and explosive battles in a large arena.You awaken aboard the Talos 1 in the year 2032 and must uncover the secrets hiding in the depths of the space station while being hunted by the mysterious alien force that has taken over.Perhaps the most surprising announcement of the show was that Bethesda has opened a new division of the studio devoted to making VR games.Finally, there was more news on Dishonored 2, which was unveiled at last year's E3.The game stars two characters: returning protagonist Corvo Attano, and the prior game's royal daughter Emily Kaldwin.
E3 may be all about games, but in recent years the focus has been largely on consoles.More than 20 presenters did just that, showing off a wealth of content for existing games, gameplay trailer reveals, and even some new hardware.That ll remain true with the prequel, Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord.The game truly refuses to sit in any one genre, with community manager Frank Elliot describing it as an action RPG strategy simulation sandbox game.You ll be able to play as anything from an ant to a shark, and live through a full life cycle, mating, raising and leveling up children, or just forming a gang of monkeys and throwing poop at passers-by.Spector also spoke to the enthusiasm of the developers, and the passion of the teams bringing their hard work to the community.
With a massive selection of DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains, Injustice 2 allows you to personalize every iconic character with unique and powerful gear.While the full roster is unknown as of this article, Boon was caught wearing a T-shirt promoting the game that featured depictions of Harley Quinn s hammer, Doctor Fate s mask, Captain Cold s gun, Superman s shield logo, Aquaman s staff head, Flash s boot, Green Lantern s power source, and more.The roster is supposedly larger than what was offered in the first 2013 installment, Injustice: Gods Among Us.The game picks up where the original game left off, with Batman and his buddies trying to restore peace while they fight against supports of Superman s regime.Personalization was a major focus that NetherRealm wanted to achieve with this installment.Injustice 2 is slated to hit the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles in 2017.
