Celeste Developers Cancelled Making Skytorn

Developers of Celeste cancelled their new 2D Metroidvania action game Skytorn, years in the making.

Noel Berry was the co-developer of 2018 platformer video game Celeste alongside Matt Thorson, which ended up winning in the "Best Independent Game" category at The Game Awards 2018 aside from receiving universal acclaim from critics.

He was also working on another Metroidvania game titled Skytorn from five years ago and the development was postponed for the making of the best indie title of last year but Berry always said that he would finish the game in future, until now.

People who knew about the project were very excited for it and the team behind the game invested a lot of time into it but unfortunately, they have come to the decision of not finishing the game anymore. It was mostly because they never figured out what they were making.

Even after working on it for years, they couldn't progress because they were developing a game without permadeath and that is contradictory with the themes of Metroidvania. At this point, it will require them to throw away a huge chunk of code and gameplay design.

However, he assured that he is sticking together with the "Celeste" team as they will be adding some very hard new "Farewell Levels" to the game according to an announced earlier and will also be working on their upcoming title.

It is really a shame seeing all that beautiful sprites and level design going away in waste as Skytorn really had the potential to become the next indie blockbuster. Hopefully, the entire team will be able to move on with their next project at hand and implement this learning experience.

Joker from Persona 5 Comes to Catherine: Full Body

Catherine: Full Body introduces Persona 5's Phantom Thief, Joker as a playable character in latest trailer.

Not long after the announcement of adding Joker from role-playing game Persona 5 to crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at The Game Awards 2018 as the 76th fighter of the game, developer/publisher Atlus came forward with more plans for him.

Joker will be a part of Catherine: Full Body, which is an upcoming remastered version of 2011 puzzle platformer video game Catherine from the same company, currently scheduled to release on February 14, 2019 for Japan only.

Joker, the protagonist from the popular JRPG title will be a playable character and his involvement to the fray was announced back in September 2018 along with a few other related contents and the gameplay video was meant to display his playing style.

Whereas we usually see Vincent trying to climb his way to the top of never-ending series of towered blocks, the Phantom Thief makes it look easier with precision and his quick speed, which make it seems like he is meant for solving this sort of haunted puzzles.

Catherine: Full Body adds a brand-new character Rin to cause a friction between two other main characters, Catherine and Katherine. She is a pianist from Stray Sheep and players can choose from 11 different vocals to be her voice in the Japanese release.

Aside from teasing his appearance, Atlus never revealed whether the game will arrive on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita worldwide same time as they will on Japan or would come at a later date. Same can be said about the arrival of Joker in a DLC when the game finally launches.

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Adds Kage

A brand-new character Kage joins the roster of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for Season 4 from December 16.

After the Arcade Edition of fan-favorite fighting game Street Fighter V released for PC and PlayStation 4 earlier this year, developer/publisher Capcom had a great run with it and professional players on many tournaments and fans loved it.

To show appreciation to the community folks, they have created a brand-new character named Kage out of the shadow of Satsui no Hado, the evil force that is rooted inside Akuma and he will join the roster from the very beginning of the next season.

Below is an official trailer that showcased the reveal of the character and some of his gameplay features you can check out in advance.




RELATED: Mortal Kombat 11 Announced

Initially, Kage may look a lot like Evil Ryu nor is he a revamped skin but he definitely is not and is something very different. When Ryu has rejected to embrace the power of Satsui no Hado, the physical embodiment of it has taken form and become Kage.

Ryu actually has the dark power of Satsui no Hado within him and whenever he lets it take over his persona altogether, he becomes Evil Ryu. When this persona takes over, he is on a path of destruction under the influence of the dark force.

For years, he has been desperately trying to keep it at bay so that it cannot consume him entirely and now has overcome the weight of that power. However, Satsui no Hado decides to chose a path of its own and rises in the form of Kage.

Following his transformation, the character puts up a brutal display of his raw power against opponents like Akuma, Ryu and Sagat, destroying each of them one by one by unleashing his moves on them in battle with ruthless efficiency.

Kage has variation of Hadoken fireballs inspired from both Akuma and Ryu that he can conjure up. He also has the axe kick, Ryusokyaku of Evil Ryu while being able to deliver shoryuken uppercut and a spinning kick to the opponent.

The Critical Arts and V-triggers in him are just two other powerful attack Taigyaku Mudo and Shun Goku Satsu to throw his opponents off balance. The latter is the similar move to the Raging Demon that Akuma uses but is specifically modified for the character here.

RAGE 2 Release Date

New trailer of RAGE 2 revealed at Game Awards 2018 showcases the open-world wasteland that players will enter on May, 2019.

Initially the reveal of upcoming first-person shooter title RAGE 2 was sort of fun filled with the leak from Walmart listing and then the reveal video getting leaked out but the kind of hype came with it kind of died down after the showcase at E3 2018.

Now that they are wrapped up launch of Just Cause 4 for Square Enix, developer Avalanche Studios and publisher Bethesda Softworks has released a new gameplay trailer for a game that was long abandoned for years, at The Game Awards 2018.

The protagonist Ranger will go to raid bandit outposts, run races or may destroy a convoy and each time, some new mayhem will present itself for him to take care of and improve his bond with some of the key characters throughout the story.

You'd thing that a post-asteroid world would be less crowded but gangs of adrenaline junkies and mutants will prove you wrong. Although a sequel to 2010 release Rage, you will have hard time comparing the tones even though the time has shifted a lot within the game.

Another thing that can have you baffled is that where on Earth did these scumbags found all those fancy convoys and guns? Have you seen them in action already? The middle-sized cars that you see around can tear through decent barricades.

Factions like Immortal Shrouded and the Goon Squad patrolling the areas will open up opportunities for you to engage in some spectacular vehicular combat. Have we also mentioned about the boomerang weapon called the Wingstick? It is super-awesome!

Events will come, enemies will cross path to get into a shootout and you will turn the wasteland into a bloody playground. Even with all that guns blazing and limbs of the enemies getting splattered on everywhere, you can realize at one point that a colorful post-apocalypse doesn't look that scary at all.

With a massive open-world map that allows you to go anywhere and blow stuff up, all the game lacks at this point is probably a co-op play. And you know what the best part is? There are no load times now! So, go crazy and blow something up!

RAGE 2 now has an official launch date of May 14, 2019, when it will be released worldwide on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Surprisingly, that is actually pretty sooner that what fans expected and haven't actually hoped anything like it. However, this one is definitely a welcomed one.

Bethesda is having a pretty hard time these days following the unsuccessful release of their online action role-playing game Fallout 76 and the PR disasters they are facing for the title on a daily basis. Hopefully, Avalanche Studios can help them redeem themselves from this shipwreck.

Far Cry: New Dawn Announced

Ubisoft takes the stage of The Game Awards 2018 to announce Far Cry: New Dawn in a post-nuclear playground.

Just a day before the event of The Game Awards 2018, developer/publisher Ubisoft decided to drop a teaser for their next ambitions chapter of Far Cry series, which is one of their most critically-lauded franchises of first-person shooter titles.

The internet was quick to point out the teaser trailer probably is hinting at the endings of Far Cry 5, the latest standalone title in the series and guess what? They were actually right. The newest standalone sequel to FC5 is announced, titled Far Cry: New Dawn.

Hope County is not anything like you used to know before and turned into something entirely different. Seventeen years after a nuclear meltdown, the world has changed and this direct sequel to previous installment actually comes back in a vibrant new world.

You'd think that a world-ending level of catastrophe will leave the place in dust but nature worked its magic and bounced back a colorful superbloom to the place. A new community is build but it is threatened by a scavenger's gang called Highwaymen led by twin sisters, Mickey and Lou.

When the unforeseen event took place, the twins were just kids and they learned about the harsh reality of growing up in a wasteland frontier. They formed this vicious gang of like-minded looters who lives life like there is no tomorrow.

These nomadic savages move from one place to another within the countryside, take resources for themselves from anywhere they can find and kills or take people into the group when they came across in way of their journey.

Doing what they do in general, they finally arrived back in Hope County and the survivors of the ruined town would need help from players to withstand the tyrannical oppression the Highwaymen are about to inflict on them.

Aside from shooting guns, you will need to work with the survivors to make a Homebase, where you craft makeshift weapons and train hired guns and fangs like Timber as you have before as Boomer. You are back into the Mad Max-esque world if you are wondering.

On surface, the game seems to have a smaller-scale premise even for a sequel, something similar to the spin-off release Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. What we can see so far is that it looks like a newly designed Fallout game foundation with revamped elements of RAGE 2.

Biomutant Gameplay Highlights

Upcoming 2019 action RPG game Biomutant showcases various gameplay features in a latest sizzle reel.

Thanks to developer Experiment 101, upcoming action role-playing game Biomutant looks absolutely amazing in every aspect and we cannot wait for it to launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2019 from publisher THQ Nordic.

Up until now since 2017, we have had a gameplay teaser, followed by a cinematic trailer and finally some gameplay footage from Gamescom 2018. This time comes a sizzle reel that offers a better visual of the incredible open world environment of the game.

The angry Rocket Raccoon lookalike creature is one of many from a post-apocalyptic world where a plague has ruined everything. Even though we saw this furry buddy so far, the game allows players to heavily customize their character and he may look different.

You can alter body types, fangs, fur and gender with additional robotic parts like claws, legs and wings. You can clearly see the character changed from an Arabian wielding nunchucks into old-fashioned deep sea diving suit wearing ninja.

The player character will also come across many more interesting creatures during many reward based quest it has. For ground and air travel, you will have access to mounts and the way one makes decisions will affect the outcome of the story.

Biomutant looks very promising to become a successful title and has a lot to live up to but if it can manage to do that, THQ will have everything they need to build a beloved franchise from it even if the game is among the most anticipated ones of 2019 or not.

Warcraft 3: Reforged Announced

Blizzard Entertainment is bringing back their classic RTS title in an all-new HD remastered version as Warcraft 3: Reforged.

The question that arose back in February 2018 that whether developer/publisher Blizzard Entertainment will release a remastered version of their fantasy real-time strategy game Warcraft III is finally answered at BlizzCon 2018 today and we couldn't be happier.

During their opening ceremony, Blizzard took the stage to offer everyone a glimpse of their reworked version of the game, now branded as Warcraft III: Reforged and it simply recaptures the intensity when it was first launched back in 2002.

The official trailer below for WIII: Reforged opens up in a cinematic re-imagining the original conflict that the game was based on.




RELATED: Warcraft 3 Update Suggests Remastered Edition?

The cinematic opens up with two soldiers from Human Alliance and the Orcish Horde were fighting each other to an exhausting end in the middle of a field. Skies were roaring and then the army of Burning Legion returns with a reign of fire.

One of those comet-like object falls near the warriors and an Infernal in a glowing fiery aura comes out of it as a common threat to the Human and Orc. Moments later, two of them fell to their demise battling the demon and their blood soaks the land.

We encourage you to take a look at the gameplay trailer to witness how every aesthetic of Warcraft is remodeled and redesigned for a greater experience.




RELATED: World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Novella is Free Now

Announced for a 2019 release, Reforged is based on the original Reign of Chaos and comes with its original expansion pack, The Frozen Throne. Aside from graphical upgrade, the remake is upgraded with an advanced UI and World Editor to support mods.

Every hero, unit, building and environment elements of the classic real-time strategy are being recreated and now they have 4K support. Players can choose from four races to take on over 62 missions taking place into various continents of the game.

RELATED: World of Warcraft Subscription Includes All Pre-Released Content

When Patch 1.29 update for the game was released, it introduced the 16:9 widescreen display support and hero balance tweaks. This was slightly unusual considering the last update that came for the game was over a year ago and then a long pause.

It also got an updated installer with changed interface then alongside other fan-favorite titles like Diablo II and StarCraft to make them compatible for modern systems. From then, speculations started to fly from fans about a Remastered Edition.

However, developers were actually updating the client so the players who owned the original title would be able to play with the new wave of Reforged owners. Blizzard is already open for pre-orders including a Spoils of War Edition of the game.

Most of the community member has been asking them for years to polish the game visuals without making any further change in gameplay. This actually made things easier for the company and helped them balance the game like StarCraft.

RELATED: Blizzard celebrates 20th anniversary of StarCraft

Die-hard fans of the series had high hopes for getting an announcement for Warcraft IV though but still everyone appreciated the remake. Besides, Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos is what set the concepts for World of Warcraft lore in the first place.

So, regarding all the enthusiastic anticipation and respect it deserves from players, Reforged can very well turn out to be one of the biggest titles to come to Mac and PC in 2019 and it wouldn't be of any surprise if it does.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales Gameplay Trailer

The new gameplay trailer for Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales showcases how an ordinary card game has evolved into a great RPG adventure.

The dark world of Witchers and monsters you remember from The Witcher series of games by developer/publisher CD Projekt Red gets a spin-off in the form of an upcoming free-to-play collectible card game, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales.

The game will feature cross-platform play and is currently scheduled to release for PC on 23 October. It will launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 4 December, 2018. Recently, a gameplay trailer is released for this single-player role-playing strategy adventure.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales focuses on a prominent character that remains largely unexplored throughout the lore, Queen Meve of Lyria and Rivia. It helped the developers create a unique game yet maintain a link to The Witcher saga.

Those who have played Gwent: The Witcher Card Game before would recognize many aspects of these games pretty similar since it allows players to make moves on the vast area of the exploration map as Meve and her army.

You are to train your armed forces in camps where you need to upgrade them and boost their weapons before commencing into battles. Challenging conflict will present them during the campaign and epic battles will be fought where each action have consequences.

This anticipated card game is building a narrative-driven gameplay that offers various puzzles to solve and turn-based card battles. Even though that sounds like any typical game from the genre but the exploration to the expanded world of Witchers is an experience unlike any other.

Most of the card games are mostly an extension of games like Might & Magic VII or Magic: The Gathering. Thronebreaker however, takes inspiration from these classic digital card game titles and improves in overall to stand proud.
