The sequel to South Park the Stick of Truth, will follow a similar concept of you being the new kid who just moved to South Park and going into adventures with characters from the show.

For Honor

For honor, a new franchise that clashes different eras of warriors, has a slow, but weighty combat that makes every move count.

The Crew
The Crew has new content coming, unfortunately, all we know at the moment is that it’ll expand on the game and that you should be expecting it soon.

their loot.

The game will be coming out this November.
Just Dance 2016
Not much is new in Just Dance, other than the new songs, and a new mode where you can take your smartphone and use its camera to capture your moves, for this feature you’ll need an app that’ll be available at the App Store.
The bigger news about Just Dance 2016 is that it’ll have the option to get Just Dance Unlimited, a subscription service where you’ll be able to stream new songs on a monthly fee, this service will be available for Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One.

Not much else was announced about the game at the moment, more said to come this Wednesday.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate takes place in Industrial Revolution London, where you are fighting to give the people back their land.
All we were shown was a CG trailer that by the way, featured Noel Gallagher’s The Heat of the Moment.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands
Ghost Recon Wildlands was the last game of the presentation, and we were shown gameplay footage.
The plot of the game is that you’ll be taking down drug cartels in multiple ways depending on your choice, weather you’d like to go stealth or with an aggressive approach, is on you.
However, the game is still in Pre-Alpha, which means the game will be prone to change in the upcoming months.

Microsoft E3 2015 Press Conference

Halo 5, Xbox 360 Compatiblity, Rare, Windows 10, The Division, EA access and much more!

We take a look at all what Microsoft had on their E3 2015 Press Conference, starting things off with footage from multiple games to the theme of the Man of Steel by Hans Zimmer.
Followed by what could be one of the best video game line-ups in Xbox history.
Halo 5 Guardians
Halo 5 Guardians, the first game shown in the press conference, follows after the events of the previous game in the franchise.
The plot of the game is that MasterChief is on the run because of the allegations of a treason, and you’ll be a team running an investigation to learn the truth.
The presentation of this game is great, the graphics look fantastic, the creatures look organic, the different armors and metal surfaces look shiny and clear, it looks as you’d expect Halo to look on the Xbox One.
The multiplayer in this game, Warzone, will be similar to previous games, but this time around it will have connection to the main story.
The game will be coming to Xbox One this October 27th, 2015.
Recore
Recore is a new exclusive game for Xbox One, developed by Keiji Inafune and members of the team that developed Metroid Prime.
Shows exploration and different elements that seem to follow an isolation, yet action packed adventure, perhaps not too different from what we’ve seen on Metroid Prime.
It’s also worth mentioning that the game seems to capitalize on the sense of discovery and wonder from the player.
At the time of announcement, the game has a release window of Spring 2016.
Xbox 360 Backwards Compatibility
Probably one of the biggest announcements of the conference for long-time Xbox players, is that their games from the previous generation, the Xbox 360, will now be compatible with Xbox One.
This is thanks to a new system where if you own the disc of the game and put in on your Xbox One, the system will download a digital copy of the game so you can enjoy it on the current gen console.
Xbox One Elite Controller
As it is custom amongst first party developers, Xbox announced a new controller for Xbox One that allows you to interchange pieces like the D-pad, control sticks, additional back buttons, trigger stoppers, memory files, and more.
The controller will be compatible with Xbox One and Windows 10.
Fallout 4
Bethesda showed gameplay footage and showcased features within the game in the press conferece, we gave this game coverage on our Bethesda E3 2015 Press Conference article.
EA access
Ea access lets Xbox One players play Madden 16, Need for Speed, Dragon Age Inquisition, Titanfall, and other EA older games for a monthly fee.
It was also announced that new EA games in Beta will be playable exclusively on Xbox One.
Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2
The new Plants vs Zombies has a gameplay very similar to that of the previous Garden Warfare, with new types of both plants and zombies, and new gameplay elements promised.
Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 has a release window of Spring 2016.

Forza Motorsport 6

Showcased alongside the new Ford GT, Forza Motorsport 6, the Xbox One exclusive racing game, had a few new interesting details and specs revealed.
The game will run in 1080p, 60 frames per second, will feature 24-car online multiplayer, making it one of the most interesting online experiences on Xbox One. The game will come out this September.
Dark Souls III
Not much was said about Dark Souls III. Other than it has a similar artstyle from the previous two games. The game will be coming early in 2016.
Tom Clancy’s the Division
This game is a third person shooting game where you have to go against waves of enemies in an post apocalyptic New York.
It was announced that Xbox One owners will get an exclusive play at the Beta for the game.
Ion
Is a game that will revolve around the use of the laws of physics and biology, it’s only been said that it’ll be coming soon to Xbox One and PC.
Rise of the Tomb Raider
The second game in the franchise reboot arrives this holiday to Xbox One.
Rise of the Tomb Raider seems to follow a very similar gameplay from the previous game, but on a much less stealthy and much more action packed manner.
Rare Replay
A greatest hits collection of Rare games will be coming to the Xbox One, it’ll feature Battletoads, Banjo Kazooie, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, Viva Piñata, and other classics.
The collection will be coming August 4th of this year.
Sea of Thieves
Also from Rare, we got a first look on the upcoming game Sea of Thieves, a shared world adventure game about pirates, it’ll be exclusive to the Xbox One.
Fable Legends
The new entry in the Fable series will be coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 and it’ll be Free to Play for both systems.
Microsoft Hololens
Probably the most interesting news to come out of this press conference, is the Hololens, Microsoft’s lenses that produce holographs in the real world when you wear them.
The lens is said to be powered with Windows 10, and is Microsoft’s take on the holographic lens market, not too different from others, like Google glass.

The Hololens was showcased with Minecraft, where the employee had the minecraft world holograph on a table, where he looked inside places, turned the map, and traveled from one area to the other.

Speaking of Minecraft, they also talked about MineCon 2015, where they promise it’ll be the biggest Minecraft Convention they’ve had yet.

Gears of War Ultimate Edition
The classic, first game of Gears of War is coming remastered to the Xbox One with modern day standards of graphics, such as 1080p 60 frames per second.
It’ll come exclusively to Xbox One.
Gears of War 4
The upcoming Gears of War seems to follow a similar gameplay from previous games, but the atmosphere is quite different, being much more colorful and having bigger contrasts from dark colors and bright ones.
The game also seems to take a less action oriented take, and a more varied style between really atmospheric, dark places, to battle arenas.
“Gears 4” will be coming exclusively to the Xbox One on Holiday.
And that wraps up our Microsoft E3 2015 Press Conference, we hope you found this review informative. What did you think of the conference? Which announcement stood out for you? Let us know in the comments.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Debut Trailer and Gameplay footage

The New instalment of Assassin’s Creed gets its first trailer

Today Ubisoft revealed the trailer and name of the new assassin’s creed, “Assassin’s Creed Syndicate” alongside a 10 minute gameplay video which gives us a good idea of how the game feels and plays as well as some new things to expect


Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is set in 1868 Victorian England, this time the world will develop around the industrial revolution and the trailer gives a much more violent feeling than past Assassin’s Creed games and the character seems to have a personality like edward kenway but grittier.

The game still focuses on stealth and doing everything with extreme care and in silence, you can still use  stealth mode, eagle vision and mechanics you are familiar with but there are new things that will completely change the experience like the “rope launcher” which allows you to get to high buildings in a matter of seconds or a zip line to go from roof top to roof top.

The game seems to be the classic we know and love, and that some got even tired of, but with enough twists, changes, interesting scenarios and interesting storyline to give it a chance and enjoy it. The game is set to come out October 23 on PS4 and XboxOne with the PS version following later, be sure to check our page and youtube for more information.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China Gets a Launch Trailer

The game comes out April 21st.

Back on September last year, Ubisoft announced that they’d be releasing the first in a series of Download-Only, Sidescroller titles for the franchise. Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China follows the story of Assassin Shao Jun, in 16th Century China.

We prevously met her in Assassin’s Creed: Embers, an animated movie that served as a closure to Ezio Auditore, the main character of the Assassin’s Creed 2, Brotherhood and Revelations.
The gameplay doesn’t seem like something we haven’t seen before, it’s a 2.5D sidescroller that reminds us of the popular Metroidvania formula; popular examples of this are Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Super Metroid, and the more recent Batman: Arkham Origins: Blackgate.
The title will be download-only, and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The next titles in this series include Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Russia, already announced for the same platforms as ACC: China.

What do you think of this new “Chronicles” series in the Assassin’s Creed franchise? Let us know in the comments.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China Revealed

The Game will be Settled in 16th Century China

In AC Chroncicles: China, you’ll be Assassin Shao Jun, longtime AC fans will probably remember her from Assassin’s Creed: Embers, an animated movie where she asks for training from Legendary Assassin Ezio Auditore.

Ubisoft explains that the game will take place after she returns to Beijing after the events of Embers, where she finds herself the last Assassin of the Chinese Brotherhood, and she’ll start a hunt after those who betrayed her and the brotherhood.
The game will have 2.5D gameplay, and as for now a download-only title, though it is unknown if it will come out to handheld systems or to which home consoles other than those who offer the Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass, it will definitely appeal to fans of the “Metroidvania” genre or those who enjoyed the likes of Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate or Metroid: Other M.
