Homefront: The Revolution Getting An Exclusive Beta On Xbox One

Guerilla Warfare’s upcoming first-person shooter, Homefront: The Revolution, got some time in the spotlight at Microsoft’s Gamescom press conference. During its showing it was revealed that the game will be getting an exclusive multiplayer beta on Xbox One, which will begin sometime this Winter.

A new trailer was also revealed for the game, which showed a little boy giving a speech that is obviously against what he believes to appease those who overtook the country. Check it out directly below.

Splatoon Is Getting New Level Cap, Weapons And Modes Next Week

Nintendo’s ink shooter Splatoon is set to receive some new free content next week, which offers new modes, new weapons, 40 new pieces of gear and a new level cap. The download will be available on August 6th.

The two new matchmaking modes that will be added as a result of this update will be Squad Battle and Private Battle. I’ve posted a couple description snippets from Nintendo directly below that detail these new modes.

Squad Battle:

“[P]layers can participate in Ranked Battle rule sets with friends, rather than being teamed up with other players through a random selection,” detailed Nintendo. “After a player creates a squad, friends can be recruited to form a team of two to four Inklings. Friends will always play together on the same team and battle against other squads at random.”

Private Battle:

“[F]riends can splat it up in private, customisable matches. Two to eight friends can battle together by selecting their favourite map, mode and weapons. The number of participants ranges from 1v1 to 4v4, but teams don’t have to be even: if the host chooses, he or she can select a 1v4, 1v2, or any other combination of players.”

As for the new level cap, Ranked and Regular Battles will have their level caps raised to 50 and Rank S/S+, respectively. The new weapons are called the Splatling gatling gun and the Slosher bucket, though the 40 pieces of new gear have not been completely detailed outside of the sushi chef outfit.

Mega Man Creator Back On Kickstarter With Mega Man Legends Spiritual Successor

Well, that was quick. After wrapping up production on Mega Man spiritual successor Mighty No. 9, the creator is back on Kickstarter to begin production on a spiritual successor to Mega Man Legends called Red Ash.

This was announced today at the Anime Expo in Los Angeles, where they announced that they are looking to raise $800,000 to get the project going. However, there is also a second campaign where $150,000 is being asked for to produce an animated film containing the same world and characters.

As for what we can expect the game to be like, Comcept says that the game will be a third-person action adventure game with shooter and RPG elements.
