Comic Books, Film
Hot on the heels of the recently announced “Batman: Arkham VR” game comes another major virtual reality release, also announced during the E3 press conference: “Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission.” The PlayStation blog has details on the new mission, which comes from Criterion Games and DICE and will be available via PlayStation VR.
The virtual reality mission will put you, the player, in the cockpit of an X-wing, giving you the feeling of going up against the Empire alongside a band of Rebel pilots. It’ll feel like you’re in an X-wing cockpit floating in space as opposed to sitting on the couch in your living room
At E3 2016, Sony unveiled their latest “God of War” game for PS4 with a new gameplay trailer.
Where previous “God of War” games have drawn on Greek mythology, this new installment takes inspiration from Norse mythology, featuring creatures that look like elves and giants. Nevertheless, it continues to follow series protagonist Kratos, who teaches his son how to hunt over the course of this 10-minute video, even as they encounter all manner of mythological beasts all the while.
This morning at E3, Square Enix unveiled a new gameplay trailer for the long-anticipated Kingdom Hearts III, which the company confirmed will include elements from Disney’s Tangled.
The footage is sure to please franchise fans, who will be frustrated to learn there’s still no release date. That game was officially announced at E3 2013 following years of rumors and speculation, but there’s been little news about its development since then.
Eighteen years after the release of the original, Square Enix and Sony announced last night at E3 that they’re remaking Final Fantasy VII for PlayStation 4. Presumably other consoles will follow.
Development of the aptly titled Final Fantasy VII Remake will be led by key members of the original game team, including producer Yoshinori Kitase, director Tetsuya Nomura and scenario writer Kazushige Nojima.
Last night E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, in Los Angeles, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and WB Games Montreal debuted the first gameplay trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins, the prequel to the blockbuster video-game series.
In addition to the villains we’ve already seen — Black Mask, Deadshot, Deathstroke — the trailer provides us with the first look at Bane and the Joker. It also showcases the new crime scene-scanning feature and “Remote Claw.”
Batman: Arkham Origins arrives Oct. 25 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360.
