Every Last Bullet Counts In New ‘The Evil Within’ Trailer

Things are looking awesome in this new trailer.

The Evil Within is coming out very soon, and a brand new trailer showing off the madness contained within is truly impressive. The game, as you may already know, is directed by Shinji Mikami, who is known for creating the Resident Evil franchise.

This new trailer shows off many of the different aspects of the game, from upgradeable weapons, traps and viscous enemies. You can tell that this world is truly one of complete mayhem, so you may just want to check it out below. 

The Evil Within is developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda Softworks for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It’s due to release on October 14th, 2014.

F.E.A.R. Online Launches Next Month

The F.E.A.R. is back.

F.E.A.R. is back again as the next installment in the franchise, called F.E.A.R. Online, is launching in the free-to-play format on Steam starting October 17th.

The game features a new horror scenario that runs concurrently with the events of F.E.A.R. 2, many multiplayer modes, new maps, and a crafting system that lets you create customized weapons.

An open beta for the game will be available on October 8th, with developer Aeria Games encouraging those interested in participating to sign up for it on their website right here.

The F.E.A.R. franchise is one I hold dearly to my heart, as the original game is one of the best horror games of all-time. However, with each subsequent iteration they have lost what made the first one so special, with F.3.A.R. being heavy on action and light on atmosphere and story. Maybe going back in the timeline will rekindle some of the horror gamers have been craving for years.

New ‘Middle-earth: Shadow Of Mordor’ Trailer Flaunts Season Pass Content

More Mordor.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has just been released to very favorable reviews this week, ushering in yet another wave of Tolkien-inspired gaming. While the main game has plenty of content for gamers to sink their teeth into, the devs have plenty more content stashed away that they’re hoping everyone will buy in the form of DLC.

The contents of the Season Pass contains a lot of really interesting content; including new runes, skills and even the opportunity to battle Sauron himself. All of this brings up the question of whether or not this content is being held back to suck more money out of consumers, but we’ll just put that issue aside for the moment and have a look at the trailer. 

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is developed Monolith Productions for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Here’s A Close-up Of Nathan Drake In Uncharted 4

EXTREME CLOSE-UP! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!

One of the biggest reveals at Sony’s E3 Press Conference was the announcement of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, which is set to come exclusively to the PlayStation 4 sometime next year. However, the short snippet was pretty much the epitome of a tease, as all we really got was a video of Drake waking up in a puddle of mud while a voice-over conversation between Drake and Sully ensued.

Well, this latest pic isn’t exactly popping the lid off of anything, but consider it a little something to tide us over until the next bit of news pops out. Lead game designer Kurt Margenau posted the following image of Nathan Drake on twitter, which is essentially just a close-up of an image that appears on a TV.

Uncharted 4

 

This image was snapped during a Naughty Dog 30th anniversary art exhibit which runs from September 27th to October 12th. As you can probably tell, Drake is looking a bit older, a bit scruffier, and a bit more ticked about something or other probably pertaining to some infamous treasure. As long as he still has his charismatic demeanor and the game doesn’t go all “The Last of Us serious” then I guess I can overlook Drake’s recent neglect of personal hygiene.
