Day one of BlizzCon was jam-packed full of announcements and reveals, including Blizzard's first new IP in 16 years (holy crap I feel old). Check out new trailers for StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void, the next Hearthstone expansion, and Overwatch, an upcoming team-based multiplayer shooter.
The Walking Dead: Season Two comes to an end next week, and Telltale has released a pretty special trailer to commemorate things. It starts with about two and a half minutes recapping Clementine's journey so far, through seasons one and two (so basically two and a half minutes of heartbreak), then moves into something we've never seen before...
When the writer of Deus Ex says he wants to make an espionage-thriller game with a nonlinear narrative, emphasis on dialogue, and a Magic: The Gathering-inspired combat system... I say, yes please, and open my wallet.
This fall, Wizards of the Coast will be embarking on their most ambitious Dungeons & Dragons project yet. It's called Tyranny of Dragons, and it's a transmedia effort that will see a storyline play out over tabletop, video games, novels, and more.
Payday 2 developer Overkill Software's next project has been announced, and it's one heck of a licensing deal. They're working on a Walking Dead game, one that Robert Kirkman, the creator of the comic book series, is calling, "the co-op game that all of the Walking Dead fans have been waiting for." Color me hyped.
Somebody pinch me. If it wasn't official, I honestly wouldn't have believed this report for a second; it's simply way too awesome. It's true though, Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima, easily two of the weirdest (in the best way possible) artists in their respective fields, are going to collaborate on the next Silent Hill game. To add some icing on that cake (as if it even needed any), it will star Walking Dead's Norman Reedus. Daryl Dixon vs. Del Toro and Kojima's Silent Hill? Yes please!
What if I were to tell you that an upcoming game features a playable world the size of Europe? With dynamic weather and seasons, and the ability to play as literally every animal in the game (as well as ancient humans, mythical creatures, and more). Also, it's being designed by Michel Ancel, the guy who created Rayman and Beyond Good & Evil. Now where do I insert my money?
The cat's out of the bag now. After a brief leak earlier this morning, Ubisoft has officially released the first trailer for this year's other Assassin's Creed game. It's called Rogue (previously codenamed Comet), and will arrive this fall on last-gen platforms.
A new trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has dropped, and it's intent on reminding you that this game does in fact have a story. It's about how Kevin Spacey uses his wealth and power to organize elaborate games of laser tag. Or something. There were a lot of shooting and explosions and I got distracted.
