These will add more quests to the game, bring new bosses and grant your hero unique abilities to play for hours. The best part is that you are only two weeks away from getting your hands on it.

Since no price was announced for Voidheart Edition yet, we can guess that the game will probably cost the same amount for PS4 and Xbox One when released.

The latest update at hand is that, the Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund the project by Steamforged Games gets fully funded yesterday within a short time span of two hours for a 21-day campaign.

After being initially announced last month, dedicated fan base of this board game started financially backing up this project. Now, they will probably plan for some more stretch goals.

Steamforged has a successful history in crowdfunding, notably for raising a $5.4 million pledge for Dark Souls: The Board Game and another $1.04 million to make Resident Evil 2: The Board Game.

The fact that they are directly associated with developers Guerrilla Games and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment of the game rooted people's trust even further. Company co-founder Mat Hart has been working in video game industry for more than a decade and is passionate for tabletop gaming.

If you have played the tabletop Dark Souls already and loved the cooperative experience it offers, chances are you will end up loving the same idea HZD will present.

Players will choose a tribe from Banuk Survivor, Carja Warrior, Nora Outcast or Oseram Forgesmith; each one represents a unique class that is different in terms of combat styles. For example, some among them might be good in stealth, some excels in traps and some may come in handy for all-out frontal assault.

Players will join in different roles in the group called Hunter’s Lodge and works collectively to take down all hostile robotic organisms around them. They will compete with each other to earn glory from killing blows to improve their status among their group.

Instead of generating random map like their board game representation of Dark Souls, Steamforged Games takes a more strategic approach by letting them choose their own path. But remember, less resistance means fewer parts for upgrade.

Considering many fans of outcast protagonist Aloy may not be very familiar with the format of a typical tabletop, they tried to make it really simple though. The studio launches a full-length gameplay playthrough detailing many details you have been wondering about from their Kickstarter campaign and here it is.

By pledging your support to the campaign, you can either sign up for the $123.77 worth early-bird package before Friday or pay $130.28 for the other one that will be available till September 28.

Each of these packs comes with three expansion sets and new enemies to encounter from Horizon Zero Dawn universe. Steamforged also pitched for five additional expansions for spending an extra $221.48.

Even though the decision they made with Destiny 2: Forsaken so far regarding story and marketing, has driven the fanbase mad over developer Bungie and publisher Activision, they still believe these exclusive contents can somehow appeal to players on PS4 but whether or not it does is still remains to be seen. Because, many of them agrees with their brethren from PC and Xbox community that exclusivity is anti-consumer despite it making the game more popular over their consoles.

Cyberpunk 2077 Gameplay Reveal

Developer CD Projekt Red offered a public reveal of an extensive gameplay of upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 recently.

After their successful stint with The Witcher series, Polish developer/publisher company CD Projekt Red has focused their efforts on a new upcoming role-playing game, Cyberpunk 2077 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We are already way past a teaser trailer followed by another E3 2018 trailer back in June to receive some details of the game. What we really lacked until this point was a look at the in-game footage of how it plays out and we finally have a gameplay reveal here.

Below is a 48 minutes-long gameplay walkthrough from Cyberpunk 2077 that takes us for ride to the dystopian future we were eager to get into.

The developers chose to play the game's key character V as a female for the demonstration as she goes into a mission at an early point of the game with her friend Jackie to retrieve a girl aided by a NetRunner named T-Bug. Her locator implant goes off and now breached into a secret facility of some sort where apparently, a group of scavengers are trying to harvest implants from people by kidnapping them. They come across one of them inside and took him down without making any noise.

As she goes inside, more goons appear and gunfire ensues between two parties. We then see V using cover and then a reflex booster that allows player to use ability called Kereznikov. This lets one to experience a brief time freeze to perform attack like an amazing bullet time effect from The Matrix movie. They manage to take down the last one of them and secure the target before calling in an emergency evacuation unit to get the girl. A Trauma Team then arrives and leaves with her.

We actually have a lot more than we expected and in a video clip of nearly an hour long, there was a lot to notice and miss at the same time. Already on talk of the town menu, the game spiked an interest of every RPG lovers ever since the teaser dropped and upon releasing of some stunning screenshots, they've just lost their minds. Though skeptical at first, CD Projekt Red decided not to make them wait too much for some exclusive look into the open world of Night City.

It may sound quite odd that Cyberpunk 2077 was originally announced back in 2012, even years before The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt came out. Then it took another six years for them to make it to E3 this year. There, they showcased a similarly long demo of in-game footage to a selective audience and they were quite hesitant to reveal the video for public because it is from an early phase of development process and the finished product may not play out the same as you saw in this clip.

Debuted on Twitch, it was on the top of the live video streaming platform and then made its way to the game's official YouTube channel and we then decided to dive down. When their Twitch feed initially started to spew out a series of random characters and numbers over a black background, Reddit users have predicted this as a new trailer because of its cryptic nature but then it turned out to be a major display of the gameplay demo that was shown behind closed doors at E3 and Gamescom 2018.

Then he gets back to Lyla again on video chat, talking about the party at night.

As these two were talking, Daniel goes outside wearing a zombie mask he made for Halloween and Sean quickly rushes out seeing him in trouble moments later.

Dark Souls 3 Mod Forces of Annihilation Out Now

Forces of Annihilation Mod for Dark Souls 3 let you stomp the Kingdom of Lothric as the game's fiercest enemies.

Ever wondered how fun experience it would be to play as the boss characters in notoriously tough action role-playing game Dark Souls III of developer From Software? Well, you can just stop wondering about that and simply check out the new Dark Souls 3 Forces of Annihilation Mod by team Datahacks. Currently available on Nexusmods, this free to download mod allows players to assume the role of dreaded boss characters or other enemies from the game they have faced before.

To give you the idea of how it is played out, we have a short demo of the Forces of Annihilation and this is brilliantly amazing. Enjoy!




RELATED: Dark Souls: Remastered New Gameplay

The demo features one of the Lords of Cinder bosses, Yhorm the Giant and shows how tables are turned when he is controlled by a player instead of AI. We see him get up from the large throne room to go outside laying waste to the Jailer Handmaids and fire-breathing Gargoyles with minimum effort. There is a sense of satisfaction playing as Yhorm because, whereas you had to strategize your moves to deal damage to him, you can just swing his gigantic machete at your disposal.

Yhorm quickly moves towards another passage, dealing with more Handmaids by unleashing the fury of his blade. Away from the halls, he heads over to the bridge and slays another Gargoyle with ease. Having an extended health bar for playing a boss character is satisfying and watching him weirdly climbing up a ladder was really funny. What is noticeable here is that a great deal of his speed has been traded for brute strength and these were of course by the original design of the character.

Step by step the developers are adding more enemies to the fold and updating the mod as all of them are not yet available.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Gameplay Launch Trailer

Another new trailer for Marvel’s Spider-Man takes our favorite wall-crawler fighting villains and aiding friends.

Upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive game Marvel’s Spider-Man from developer Insomniac Games and publisher Sony Interactive is definitely going to be one of the biggest hit of this year. By now, we have witnessed a few trailer featuring story elements, gameplay mechanics and an announcement for a limited edition PS4 Pro bundle themed on the game. As the schedule for release is nearing, a brand-new gameplay launch trailer is released to crank up the hype to fans even more.

The trailer opens up with Peter talking to Miles Morales as Spider-Man about leaving the fight for the pros from next time, meaning whether Miles gets into some action story-wise or probably there are some scopes to play as him. We see Spidey kicking butt of Kingpin and leading to his arrest. He tangles with Minster Negative, Rhino, Scorpion and mercenary Silver Sable from past trailers. The video ends on the point where we previously saw Miles taking a photo of him back at E3 2017.

Aside from an improved combat system, swinging mechanics for the web-slinger is also top-notch and they make the playing experience a lot more enjoyable from any other game till date featuring our titular hero. While saving the world fighting off bad-guys, Peter takes time out talking to his Aunt May to maintain his dual life as she checks in on him. At the end of the day, we still are unclear about the identity of the mysterious entity from E3 2018 gameplay trailer he was so surprised to see.

The game is not based on any comic-book lineup or even the newly established MCU setup. However, the Spider-Man from the game continuity is going to participate in an upcoming crossover event "Spidergeddon" from Marvel Comics. Our best guess is, Insomniac is probably going for a new start of a shared Marvel Games Universe, where our favorite web-head is a slightly old Peter Parker than usual and the character we knew all along are also a bit different than they used to be.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Coming to VR

Ninja Theory studio brings the dark world of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice in virtual reality next week.

After debuting from an independent developer/publisher studio Ninja Theory, dark fantasy action-adventure title Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice received critical acclaim for its very unique story and gameplay. Initially, the game was released for PC and PlayStation 4 last year. Later, it landed on Xbox One on April 2018 and now finally, it is coming to virtual reality pretty soon through a free update next week as a different version titled Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice VR Edition.

Check out this trailer below for Hellblade VR release, where company commercial director Dominic Matthews talks about developing this version.




RELATED: No Man’s Sky NEXT Update Live Now

This multi-genre game is coming to virtual reality platforms Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on July 31, 2018. Players who already own the game on Steam can get the update for free upon release. However, it won't be able to support PlayStation VR right now because; the VR Edition currently requires a high-end hardware spec on PC. To run it in an anticipated 90 FPS, you will need at least Nvidia GTX 1080 or AMD Radeon RX 580 GPU just to experience it on a minimum condition.

RELATED: Limited Edition Spider-Man PS4 Pro Bundle Revealed

The VR update is not just a side story added as an extra bonus feature or a technical demo of some sort. This is very much a near similar version of the original game. After two years of working on the project by running experiments with camera tricks and trying to master head-tracking control, they made it a reality. Matthews explains, this endeavor was just to see their capability to work with virtual reality and to offer fans an extra bonus for free, rather than having a business purpose.

Senua’s dramatically complex psychosis is explored in a fascinating way while still retaining a third-person perspective in VR and not making players feel nauseated at the same time controlling the Pict warrior with head-turns. British developer studio Ninja Theory has done an amazing job in creating a visually stunning Triple-A game that is also artistically superior to many of its peers, while making this all possible with a small team and short budget.
