Destiny 2: Forsaken Story Reveal

In one of E3 2018's most shocking moments, it looks like Bungie has your beloved Hunter Vanguard in some real trouble.

Despite Bungie's online-only multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny 2 being one of the two best-selling games on console alongside another Activision title Call of Duty: WWII, it faced some tough times with the release of "Curse of Osiris" and "Warmind" expansion pack DLC. Now that the third one in line has just announced shortly, fans knew that something is up and they will be let down once again. Unfortunately, they are proven right during Sony's E3 2018 press conference.

A cinematic story reveal trailer for upcoming D2: Forsaken DLC is released in the hype of E3 and it immediately saddened all players.




RELATED: Destiny 2 Escalation Protocol Details

As the trailer opens, we see one of the most beloved Guardians and everyone's favorite hunter Vanguard Cayde-6 badly injured, sitting on his knees and even missing a chunk of his face. He surely is in trouble but isn't trying to run away. His ghost is taken out and then the camera moves around to reveal the return of Prince Uldren Sov holding an Ace of Spades hand cannon to his face. He blasts off the wisecrackin’ Exo on spot and then walks over his body along with his followers.

With that, D2 just killed of one of their most celebrated character from Destiny-verse, which drove players either frustrated or mad over Bungie. In an attempt to bring back players to the game, they decided to raise the stakes more than they ever did. They have introduced the threats of aliens trying to destroy the world before and it worked too but the studio believed taking a fan-favorite personality like Cayde off the board will be so much relatable to players on personal level.

RELATED: Destiny 2: Warmind Reveal

D2 community has been devastated since they witnessed this and the Destiny subreddit is the solid proof of that with the increasing number of goofs and memes in the loving memory of Cayde-6. On September 4, Destiny 2: Forsaken is set to release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We hope that Guardians get their hands on Uldren Sov to get their revenge on their fallen comrade and settle scores then.

OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Gameplay Revealed

The first gameplay trailer Overkill's The Walking Dead co-op shooter gives a better idea of how the game will be like.

Based on The Walking Dead comic-book series from Image Comics by creator Robert Kirkman (Battle Pope, Haunt), OVERKILL's The Walking Dead game is an upcoming co-op FPS that has already showcased four of its playable characters with their unique back-stories that has hardened them into the toughest survivors in a post-apocalyptic world. The studio that worked on games like Payday 2 has been working on this project for some time and during E3 2018, they revealed a gameplay trailer.

Belonging to one of the many E3 2018 games, OTWD revealed a gameplay footage displaying our protagonists at work and how they thrive as a group.




The trailer opens up with a cinematic CGI and then going back and forth into brief playing moments where players run into a horde of walkers. With an expert melee attacker, one medic, a sniper and scavenger in a crowd of four, Overkill sets up a team play for survival. Teamwork will be essential to stay alive for the characters in Washington D.C. now overrun with zombies. Although they made it pretty clear about building a game with different tone, a more detailed gameplay would have been much appreciated.

After building much anticipation from fans for the past few months, developers finally gave us a much expected look at the in-game demo of how it looks like for a band of zombie-apocalypse survivors fighting against all sort of odds. While exploring walkers infested areas, emphasis on stealth would be pretty high for the survival of you and your teammates. The fact that many speculating OTWD will turn out to be just another Left 4 Dead is wrong but we are sure that the developers will be flattered by this comparison.

Doom Eternal E3 Teaser

Bethesda's E3 2018 press conference gave the devil its due by unveiling Doom Eternal, a sequel to 2016's rebooted title.

Many eager gamers have been waiting for a sequel to the best first-person shooter games ever made and we are talking about none other than 2016's Doom game from the newly rebooted series by developer id Software and publisher Bethesda Softworks. Eventually, the upcoming title from the franchise titled Doom Eternal was announced today by Bethesda during their E3 2018 conference and for starters, we have a brand-new teaser that is full of breath-taking action.

Prepare yourself for the ultimate ride with the devil in fiery land of dead as the gates of Hell are opening once again.

As the teaser opens, what we can see is that a backdrop which does not seem like Mars but resembles much to Earth. Buildings are on fire, freakish creatures and monstrosities like Revenants are wandering around while the camera goes forward through debris. It's definitely Earth and demons from Hell has taken over and running rampant. We see a skull belonging to Baron of Hell, which is crushed by Doomguy only to face a horde of demons while he loads a double-barreled shotgun.

Back in April, Pete Hines of Bethesda cryptically hinted that Doom 2 may be announced at E3 2018 during an event at PAX East, so this doesn't come as a surprise to us. Reboot of Doom in 2016 was a re-imagining of the original game and most probably, the sequel will follow the second one, Doom II: Hell on Earth. Although there is no mention of "Hell on Earth" anywhere in upcoming sequel's title, the entire settings of demons reigning on Earth seem pretty reminiscent of that phrase.

RELATED: Doom's Nintendo Switch Release Date

Doom Eternal is expected to release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but we don't have a release date in hand right now. Even though we haven't seen any new enemies yet, that cool shotgun is a hint that there will be new weapons. A gameplay live-stream will be held on August 10 during Quakecon and we can certainly hope to get more details on the story as well as gameplay for sure. If they can keep up to the expectation of players and maintain excellence, the sequel could also be a critical and commercial success.

Halo Infinite Announced

Halo Infinite trailer at E3 2018 is bringing back Master Chief once again to finish the fight to save humanity.

Not every day you get to show your games at a stage like E3 2018 and so, Microsoft took this opportunity very seriously on Xbox E3 2018 presentation. What better way to do that than revealing a new entry from one of your biggest franchises and what bigger series there is other than Halo? With Halo Infinite, our beloved hero Master Chief returns in action after a while. Developer 343 Industries have brought back the series once again and the next chapter begins from here.

The trailer is a short cinematic clip showing a green landscape in what seems to be an aftermath of some great war. A new ecosystem of beasts and nature completely takes over the world left behind by men as we don't see any of them. While a squad of three soldiers approaches with one of their wounded companion, we see Master Chief's iconic helm in his hand in frame. Then he plugged Cortana into the back of his helmet and then it slowly cuts into the title card.

Even though they previously hinted of making a comeback with Halo series, both developer 343 Industries and Microsoft Studios has been quite about when they are going to make a show on it for some time. Thankfully, it is finally returning to its former glory and will establish that once it finally releases. Aside from slightly changing their art style and color patterns, the game has moved to a newer Slipspace Engine this time and players get to spend more time with their favorite green Spartan.

In a time when Microsoft is desperately in need for some exclusive games for their consoles to survive the market competition as they are being manhandled by Sony and ridiculed by fans, an exclusive Xbox line-up like Halo can probably turn the table for them. So, the upcoming title is definitely a breath of fresh air in this time of crisis for the publisher. The story of the game centers around Master Chief but this teaser was to actually demonstrate their powerful new game engine.

Battlefield V Battle Royale Mode Confirmed

Dice and Electronic Arts have finally confirmed that Battlefield V is getting a Battle Royale mode after all.

Kicking off with a brand-new trailer for multiplayer mode of their upcoming story-based shooter Battlefield V during EA Play press conference at Los Angeles convention center, developer EA Dice and publisher Electronic Arts went on to reveal more details about the game from long-running Battlefield series. Dice also have confirmed shortly afterwards that a battle royale-style multiplayer mode will be included, which will be set in WW2 period as well as the main game.

Although they talked about many other notable features and details about the latest game of Battlefield series, EA have not spoken much about their inclusion of a battle royale mode in BFV yet. All we know for now is that its part of a post-launch live service called "Tides of War", which has core gameplay of the franchise, destruction, vehicles and other key aspects. They always tease for a game and then upon revealing, they tease for some more content to show off in future.

So, we hope EA has been saving up the best for later time and besides, the developers are still exploring this new experience to make it work in a World War II setting. Rival game Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is also bringing battle royale to the table with their newly introduced mode called "Blackout". Perhaps one of them will charm the large-scale sandbox gameplay by letting a large amount of players take part but sadly, BFV is still stuck with their typical 64 player count cap from sixteen years ago.

Battle royale is such a cliché and currently a running trend as a sub-genre, pioneered by games like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite. Because of these trendsetting games, many have been following the footsteps of a last-man standing shooter these days. Brendan 'PlayerUnknown' Greene, creator of PUBG has taken Twitter to express his response to this new announcement, welcoming Dice to the club with a short Tweet.

However, given their recent history of suing a several games that followed their style, people are skeptical at his response. A lot of people have sarcastically started pointing out how they have grown a tendency of suing other creators, instead of fixing their own game. Greene obviously did not appreciate their honesty and blocked or muted them out. Even if they take out Epic Games in court, a huge drop-off in their player base and loads of in-game issues are not something you can simply overlook like that.

BF5 can really turn heads with "Tides of War" battle royale mode in a WW2 background or maybe Black Ops 4 can do that. This seriously leaves the future of PUBG in question considering they have already lost half of their concurrent players in one month lately. First-person shooter game Battlefield V will launch worldwide for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 19. Pre-ordering the game on EA Access or Origin Access will let you start early from October 11.

EA launches Battlefield V’s first multiplayer gameplay trailer featuring the unmatched intensity of all-out war.

It was only two weeks ago when developer EA Dice and publisher Electronic Arts revealed their upcoming first-person shooter game Battlefield V in a live-stream reveal event, slated for October 19 release. During their EA Play press conference at Los Angeles convention center, EA made a presentation on few of their upcoming titles and luckily, BFV got its fair share as well. The newest trailer for the latest game of Battlefield series has just debuted with lots of action from World War II era.

The clip above shows a lot of cinematic aspects meshed with some gameplay videos at the same time. Players now have a new perspective at this war scenario and some of the key environment mechanics like sliding after running is focused in it. One of the multiplayer maps had a small town setup and "Airborne" mode is also hinted at. This one will be a part of Grand Operations, which is an upgraded and extreme version of Operations mode from Battlefield 1.

Grand Operations are designed to raise the stakes of bringing those iconic WW2 experiences, Dice made Airborne an exclusive mode to it. Parachuting into the middle of a conflict to forefront an assault is a specialty to this mode. An attack team will try to destroy a couple of artillery cannons which the defenders will try to avert. If you are former, try and locate bombs with your team but if you belong to the latter, place your towable weapons and anti-air guns to mount your defense.

One more important mechanics introduced is a reviving system, which is new to the series and one of the changes that will evolve combat as we know it. When one of your teammate is down, you can drag him to safety and then revive them. In crucial situations, this sure will come in handy. BFV was one of the early entries from E3 2018 games and though it is already confirmed, a battle royale mode like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or Fortnite is still not shown in the clip.

Belonging to a long-running story-based shooter series, Battlefield V will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. By now, we already know that BF5 is set on the period of Second World War and it sets apart from rest of the franchise by moving forward with new features like overall player customization and adding female characters in the mix for the first time, which immediately drew some fan backlash, which the game's developers defends saying, they are here to stay.

Overkill's The Walking Dead Introduces Heather

The fourth character in upcoming Overkill's The Walking Dead, Heather is here and you would not want to cross her.

Now that Season 8 of The Walking Dead TV series is over, we are out of our TWD fun-dose again. Developer Overkill Studios has been working on a co-op shooter game based on the same universe but it will be nothing like the zombie series on AMC. Except for the fact that these are both inspired from the works of comic-book writer Robert Kirkman (Battle Pope, Haunt) published by Image Comics. We are in for a new trailer that introduces a new character from the game.

The brand-new zombie-apocalypse survivor Heather marks her debut in the character reveal trailer from the upcoming Walking Dead game.




Heather is seen scavenging with a shopping cart inside an abandoned store and a zombie was gawking at her from outside. A shot is fired that took down the walker and three strangers enter the store apparently looking for her. When the female of that group attacks her upon spotting, she tackled and then took out another before smashing her previous attacker on a glass of the nearby freezer that slashed the woman's throat. She then shot her second attacker before a bottle smashes on her head by the third.

What's most impressive about her is that not only she can take care of her when she is outnumbered; she took some beating like a champ. Later, when the two of them were spreading her supplies among them, she came back and locked up the gate in front of the alley before attracting a horde by shooting a flare. When the guy who knocked he asks for key, she stubbornly kept asking for her bag until he gives up. She then leaves them to chance by dropping the key outside of the gate

Heather is Ruthless

Heather happens to be the fourth playable character and judging by her traits, we guess that her forte is scavenging. Three other players are introduced before her and among them Aiden seems like an expert in melee, Maya is definitely a medic and Grant is a sniper. Together, these tough leading characters will fight zombie swarms and build base for survival. We are expecting another trailer that showcases an event which brings all three survivors to band together to fight for their lives.

Awaiting an official release date for fall 2018, upcoming co-op shooter Overkill’s The Walking Dead is set to release for playing on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Both Overkill and Starbreeze Studios has been collaborating for this project with Kirkman’s company Skybound. Much like a possible real-life scenario, the game teaches you that by working together, you might have a shot at surviving but if you choose to fly solo, you won't probably last for long. Implementing that aspect in the game will surely make it interesting.
