  1. Sega made an appearance at SXSW Gaming to reveal the game they've been working on under the title of Project Sonic 2017. Now dubbed Sonic Forces, the trailers only show 40 seconds of in-game footage and a little over a minute of CG cinematics. We don't know much about the upcoming Sonic game, but we do know that it looks awfully similar to Sonic Generations and Sonic Adventure, though certainly darker in tone. Forces has classic Sonic teaming up with modern Sonic to kick Dr. Eggman out of a post-apocalyptic future. The gameplay trailer shows Sonic racing through a city under siege by Death Egg Robot sentinels and the cinematic introduces classic Sonic. The robot attack causes explosions and fire to spread through the city as Sonic races through streets filled with robot enemies, spike traps, and speed boosters. Series veteran Takashi Iizuka will be directing Sonic Forces and has confirmed that the title is a standalone entry in the franchise with no connection to Sonic Generations. Sonic Forces will release this holiday season for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox one, and PC. You can watch an hour long recap of Sega's time at SXSW if you're still craving more Sonic tidbits.

  3. The strange collection of short stories told in video game form now has a solid launch locked in. Giant Sparrow, the studio behind the artistically unique Unfinished Swan, aims to humble and shock players with the mysteries and unexpected tales hidden within What Remains of Edith Finch. What Remains of Edith Finch focuses on the titular Edith Finch as she explores her Washington state family home. Each room in the house contains its own story and will help Edith come another step closer to uncovering why she is the last member of her family left alive. Each story varies in tone and theme, but they are each experienced in first-person and they each end in the death of one of Edith's family members. Giant Sparrow plans to release What Remains of Edith Finch next month on April 25 for PC and PlayStation 4.

  5. There was a bit of confusion over the weekend when Target was spotted dropping ball on the surprise announcement of the sneaky follow up to Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The leak contained everything from game bundles to the release date. Warner Bros. officially announced the sequel to Shadow of Mordor today and confirmed basically everything in the Target leak was accurate. The second game, titled Middle-earth: Shadow of War, has been developed by the same team at Monolith Productions that crafted the first entry in the budding series. It continues the adventures of Talion, the lone ranger who swore vengeance for the death of his family in Shadow of Mordor. The trailer for Shadow of War seems to show Talion and his Elven wraith ally forging a new ring of power in the heart of Mount Doom itself as Sauron marshals his forces in earnest against the world of men. New enemies unique to the game are shown joining Sauron's ranks alongside favorites like the Nazgûl. And, yes, at the end of the trailer your eyes did not deceive you: That was indeed a fully armored Balrog of Morgoth ready for war. Not going to lie, I personally had a good nerd out over that moment. Middle-earth: Shadow of War releases on August 22 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A gameplay demonstration has also been scheduled for March 8, so keep your eyes ready for that reveal.

  7. Ubisoft's free open beta for Ghost Recon: Wildlands has only recently begun and it will run until 6am PT on February 27. Players can download the beta on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC to jump into two of the game's sweeping opening areas. Solo and multiplayer co-op are supported throughout the beta, so players can go it alone or grab a couple of friends to explore the Bolivian provinces of Itacua and Montuyoc. Itacua will be the opening area of the full Ghost Recon game, while Montuyoc serves as the training area for the Santa Blanca cartel's recruits. "But," I can hear you saying, "what about the rewards for playing the open beta mentioned in the headline?" Anyone who participates in the open beta and then buys and plays the core Ghost Recon: Wildlands game before the end of March will unlock the Unidad Conspiracy. The conspiracy is a set of three missions that take place in the heart of Unidad territory, Media Luna. On top of that, Twitch Prime subscribers will be receiving some Wildlands gear in the War Within the Cartel item pack. This includes some in-game patches for equipment, a gun skin, and some nifty Santa Blanca threads for your Ghost. Ghost Recon: Wild Lands launches on March 7 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

  11. Logic Artists' Expeditions: Viking finally has a release date. Announced early last year and expected to release before the end of 2016, Logic Artists pushed their tale of warring Viking clans back into 2017. The delay added almost 50% more content to the game, but also prolonged the time the game would need to spend in localization. The additional time also allowed the team to finely tune the gameplay and get the balance just right. “Expeditions: Viking features a branching dialogue system that allows the game to manage and react to player choices. We initially estimated a word count of 200,000, but we’ve decided to increase it by an additional 80,000 words to provide players with more content and give them more options and choices on how they progress through the story,” explained Expeditions: Viking producer Ali Emek, “with that amount of content, managing localization takes more time. We think it’s worth it to make the game accessible to an international audience. That’s why we’ve arranged a number of language localizations, so from day one players will be able to enjoy Expeditions: Viking in English, French, German, Polish, and Russian.” Viking follows up the Danish indie developer's debut title Expeditions: Conquistador. After creating a character, players take on the role of a new chieftain who must lead a small Norse village to glory. Players will need to balance dealing with the threats of neighboring clans plot with raiding or trading with a fractured England full of riches. A branching story allows for players to forge their own place in the history of Viking leaders. Combat takes place on a tactical grid where players command their troops, each of whom has access to special abilities. Positioning and creative use of abilities will be crucial for players to progress through Expeditions: Viking. The adversaries players will be facing on the battlefield also have their own special abilities, so players will need to be cautious and on their toes when facing down someone new. “We received great feedback from the testers after our last closed beta session, and rescheduling the release a bit is allowing us to spend our final weeks of development on improving usability and addressing the bugs reported during the beta test,” Emek added. Expeditions: Viking releases on April 27 for PC.

  13. Sometimes highly anticipated games reveal their release dates months in advance and other times they try to sneak up on their audience. The latter scenario is representative of Telltale's Game of Thrones title, Iron from Ice. While there has been no official release date announced, VideoGamer spotted Telltale's PR representative responded to a questioning fan telling them that Telltale still plans to release the first episode of their five episode series in 2014.
  14. Jeez, there is just something that gets to me about people leaving Earth to travel through space. The imagery feels inspiring, adventurous, and terrifying all at once. The folks at Firaxis have done a fantastic job of capturing that tumult of emotion in the cinematic that introduces their game. Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth is scheduled to release on October 24 for PC. Pre-orders come with the Exoplanets map pack DLC.
  15. Haven't had your fill of explosions, dragons, demons, and eldritch horrors for the day? Dragon Age: Inquisition's latest trailer has all of those things and includes exciting trailer music. Dragon Age: Inquisition releases on November 18 and it will definitely be an unrelated coincidence if I mysteriously vanish for several days following that date. Definitely.
  16. It has been a decade since we last saw an officially numbered entry in the venerable Ace Combat series. Since then, fans of Project Aces' aerial combat games have had to content themselves with Ace Combat: Assault Horizon and Ace Combat: Infinity, the free-to-play PS3 digital title. This year marks the return of a series that delivers some of the craziest dogfights in gaming history. Counter to initial reports that Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown would be a PlayStation 4 exclusive, the title will also be coming to PC and Xbox One. However, those who want to experience Ace Combat 7 in virtual reality will have to play it on PS VR. Those who do own PlayStation's virtual reality headset will be able to access missions unavailable on other platforms. Ace Combat 7 marks the return to what has been dubbed "Strangereal" the surreal world in which the other numbered entries of the series have taken place. This other world mirrors our own, but includes more fantastical devices, such as monolithic, nuclear satellites or colossal super planes. The story picks up some time after the conclusion of Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation. The world has advanced since the Gracemerian Incident, and pilots are slowly being replaced with remote controlled drones and AI fighters. The series looks to be carrying on the tradition of high drama storytelling that earned it the nickname "airborne Metal Gear." I am 100% on board with that. No hard release date has been given, but expect to see Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown later this year for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

  18. The final piece of Dark Souls 3 DLC has been given a tantalizing trailer that teases the last bastion of the Age of Fire. The DLC has been dubbed The Ringed City, referring to a legendary stronghold at the end of all things that stands firm against a world smashing and melding in with itself. According to From Software, The Ringed City DLC will be the final Dark Souls related project before the series concludes, possibly for good. Details in the Ringed City are sure to seem enticing to veteran players. Direct parallels are drawn between the Dark Sign, an emblem central to the Dark Souls Series, and the Ringed City itself. Combined with recurring symbols noticed by a number of Dark Souls sleuths, some people wondering if the city might have something to do with Londor, an elusive land that has never been shown in Dark Souls before. Players will have to traverse an area known as the Dreg Heap, flotsam of cities from across time and space that have smashed into one another and become a dangerous, precarious wasteland of rubble. Beyond the Dreg Heap lies the end of the world where the Ringed City stands alone. The city may have even fallen to the forces of the Abyss, a corrupting force in the Dark Souls universe. Interestingly, some of the promotional material for the DLC refers to the Ringed City as "a traditional city for the Pygmies." Pygmies have never been mentioned in the Dark Souls series outside of the first game's introductory cutscene which describes one of the ancient Lords as the Furtive Pygmy. This overlooked character took the titular Dark Soul for itself and its legacy traveled down through the ages to the Sable Church of Londor. It would be fitting if the last piece of Dark Souls' story tied in with the most mysterious Lord of the Dark Soul. Also, the DLC looks like it will be including a bunch of new weapons capable of transforming, one of which kind of looks like a lightsaber. A greater winged demon appears to be one of the prominent boss encounters with some hints that it might be the very last of the great demons. Players should also expect to run into another angry giant in the DLC, possibly the last of its kind as well. Dark Souls III: The Ringed City releases on March 28 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

  20. BioWare's next installment in the Mass Effect universe looms on the video game release horizon only a scant few weeks away. While we've certainly seen a decent chunk of gameplay and cinematics, much of game still seems to be shrouded in mystery. Today, BioWare pulled back a bit more of the curtain on Mass Effect: Andromeda. As explorers sent to an entirely unexplored new galaxy, players need to establish and secure a new world 2.5 million light years away from Earth. If that weren't already a daunting task, the alien races that inhabit that new galaxy are unpredictable - some might greet explorers with curiosity and open arms, but others are out for blood. Players will need to explore, craft, and fight to carve a new home out of a dangerous new frontier.

  22. If you haven't bought Telltale's fantasy noir saga yet, physical copies of Telltale Games' The Wolf Among Us will be on store shelves at the beginning of November for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita..
  23. Everything that you might want to know about Beyond Earth packed into one ten minute gameplay trailer. Covering the different stages through which each playthrough of Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth will progress, the Discovery trailer displays the wonders of alien worlds and the technologies humanity might have at its fingertips in the far future. Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth releases on October 24 for PC. Pre-ordering will net players the Exoplanets Map Pack DLC for free.
  24. I have lost a lot of my enthusiasm for Final Fantasy in recent years, but then a certain trailer for Final Fantasy XV came and rekindled a spark of hope. It looks amazing. Though no release date has been officially announced for Final Fantasy XV, a demo will be packaged with Final Fantasy Type-0 HD when it releases next year. Besides awesome monster designs, gorgeous artistic design, and Final Fantasy guys with JRPG hair, what did we just see? If you look at the gameplay segments in the teaser, it looks like Final Fantasy XV might be attempting an open world action RPG. There is a segment where the camera pans around the car our presumably main characters are driving and it appears like both the camera and car might be under player control. We are shown multiple times in the teaser some sort of traversal mechanic involving a combination of sword-throwing and teleportation. We see combat that appears completely free from turn-based mechanics. Assuming that Final Fantasy XV remains a single-player experience, we also see AI that appears to react organically to various situations, like the near death of a party member or generally being useful in combat. Today is a good day to love RPGs.
  25. Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, the high-definition remake of the highly acclaimed PSP exclusive original, will be making its way to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next year along with the demo for the first newly numbered Final Fantasy title in nearly four years. Currently slated for a March 17, 2015 release in North America, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD follows the adventures of a group of elite military cadets known as Class Zero as they become embroiled in a massive war. It is generally regarded as one of the best Final Fantasy titles in years, so it is great to see it being released on more platforms. However, for many Final Fantasy fans the remake of Type-0 is just an added bonus to the Final Fantasy XV demo with which it will be packaged.
