The Design and Technology Video Series offers a detailed look at the targeting mechanics, movement and animation, enemy intelligence and other technical design innovations going into building an advanced, intense and immersive action-shooter with Max Payne 3.
Rockstar games offers us a gameplay trailer from Max Payne 3. Looks amazing. On the wait-for list.
Release date: 8 november 2011
Pretty funny viral campaign from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. )
Release date: december 2011
This December, go back to the four most loved maps from Battlefield 2, boldly reimagined with enhanced destruction in the Frostbite 2 engine. In this trailer, witness the very first ingame shots from Strike at Karkand, Sharqi Peninsula, Gulf of Oman, and Wake Island, from the upcoming expansion pack Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand. This expansion pack also features new weapons, vehicles, persistence, and the return of the classic Conquest Assault. Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand is out December 2011 at no extra charge with your pre-order, or available the same date at $14.99/1200 Microsoft Points.
All the games have adopted this DLC system that I don't really like. Best to keep it free like Valve does with Team Fortress 2.
Anyway, trailer looks cool, the maps are awesome and the game is epic. If you haven't played it yet go play it.
Release date: 8 november 2011 (PC)
GTA with a detective twist set in 1940's Los Angeles, easing the transition to the recently announced GTA V. Out for some time on consoles, rockstar decided to port it to PC. Still waiting for Red Dead Redemption!!
CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE 3, Release date: 8 november 2011
Tough year for cod mw3 with Battlefield 3 having this much success but we will see how it goes out. Call of Duty has a solid fan-base and I don't think MW3 will be short of fans this year. Amazing FPS series, no one can argue with that.
ELDER SCROLLS 5: SKYRIM, Release date: 11 november 2011
Huge open world, amazing graphics (well some are complaining already so that remains to be settled) and awesome gameplay. This follow-up RPG to Oblivion needs to satisfy the expectations of a large number of fans and also atract new players. Oh, and have I mentioned Dragons?!
BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY, Release date 18 november 2011
Batman: Arkham Asylum had an unexpected huge success and when the news about Arkham City were release people were wondering if things could get any better. As it seems, they can. Batman: Arkham City already has great reviews from the ones who played it and things only tend to get better. Big potential to be game of the Year. Not that the other two or Battlefield 3 wouldn't have the same chance, but hey. As ign says, "features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight". Want anything else? Probably not. Well, maybe some more CatWoman.
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm
Hyped about the new units. Blizzard said Heart of the Swarm will have a separate ladder so Wings of Liberty will continue running. This may split up the fan-base but we will see when the time comes.
Release date? Probably 2012, along with Diablo 3 and that kiddie stuff Mists of Pandaria expansion to World of Warcraft.
EA ships 10 million to strong sales
Look for EA to give us some firm sales numbers next week prior to the Modern Warfare 3 launch coming on November 8th in North America.
Rockstar Games posted on their website a countdown to the first trailer release of Grand Theft Auto 5.
Let's see what they have planned for us and maybe a release date.
