Previously, Square Enix was working with external studio CyberConnect2 to develop Final Fantasy VII Remake. But now, Square Enix will be making the game in-house.
Teased in the spring slot that Ubisoft usually reserves for announcing and hyping Assassin's Creed games, the new Far Cry is getting a push by the mega-publisher as the ideal shooter for our precarious times. It's also a game in which you'll be able to have your dog rip out a guy's throat and bring his gun back to you.
Damn it, we were so close to getting one of Milestone Media's best characters in the new superhero fighting game. Heroes and villains from all over the DC Comics multiverse are part of the roster in Injustice 2 but, for the most part, they come from the well-known core of characters clustered around the Justice League. It would have been nice to get a playable fighter with roots from another fictional landscape entirely, which is what almost happened with Static.
On one hand, Injustice 2 delivers a funhouse-mirror take on DC Comics' biggest characters, exploring the characters in intriguingly divergent ways. On the other hand, because it's a fighting game, all the story needs to do is keep generating reasons for former Justice Leaguers to punch each other across the world. Injustice 2 gets to have its cake and eat it, too, and makes you want to keep on gorging right along alongside it.
So it's finally confirmed: after smashing up the Himalayas, Africa, Micronesia, and somewhere in the Pacific, Ubisoft's next open world is going to focus on tearing up Montana, a state on the Canadian/US border.
Sounds interesting. But if you were given the choice of recreating a location for Ubi's next open-world game, where would you go?
As we've discussed, Steam's implementation of third-party curation has been a bit of a mess. So it will be interesting to see how Sony fares now that they're trying something similar.
I've been a fan of Treyarch's Zombies modes ever since "Nacht der Untoten" graced Call of Duty: World at War. I've been dying to revisit the classic maps, but with my PS3 long out to pasture, I haven't had the chance. Now, thanks to Zombies Chronicles, I can play the classics again in stunning new detail.
