Following the release of PlayStation 4-exclusive title Marvel’s Spider-Man last month, it has been creating all kind of records while both developer Insomniac Games and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment has been showered with praise from players.

Still, they cannot get enough of Spidey and want some more that amazing web-slinging action. Good thing is that Insomniac has thought these through and made plans for some additional content as The City That Never Sleeps DLC series.

Battlefield V Single Player Story Trailer

A brand-new trailer explores the untold journeys of World War II from Battlefield V single player War Stories.

After an unexpected delay of release and one of their major competitor first-person shooter title Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 being released, developer EA DICE and publisher Electronic Arts are trying to hype up the fans for upcoming Battlefield V.

Although they claimed to have delayed the release of the game to further develop the newly introduced Tides of War mode, there are more things to be excited about. One such aspect is War Stories, which features the game's single-player campaign.

A brand-new official trailer is released on BFV's single player story and it is completely focused on classic campaigns from World War II.




RELATED: Battlefield V Delayed to November

The story of Nordlys features a young resistance fighter that is set on 1943, during German occupation as she makes an ultimate sacrifice to save her family and her journey carries a weight not lesser than the weapons and ammo she carries around.

Tirailleur is centered on high-intensity warfare of Senegalese units from the French Colonial Forces and Under No Flag follows the journey of a young British criminal who tasked to blow up German air bases in North Africa, which he messed up badly.

RELATED: Battlefield V Battle Royale Mode Confirmed

Apparently, Battlefield 5 will play out the part of single player story quite differently than their World War I themed previous FPS title Battlefield 1. Vehicular combat is highlighted in both air and sea set on different locations during the conflict.

Most of the gameplay elements will go hand-in-hand with the multiplayer mode of the game. Meanwhile, watch actor Mark Strong (Shazam!, Kingsman: The Secret Service) lending voice for the story trailer and even dropping F-Bombs to make sure that players stick to their playing objective without deviating.



RELATED: Battlefield V Delay Hurts EA Stock Price

Everyone is talking about how the Blackout battle royale mode of CoD: BO4 is better than even the pioneer of the genre, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and quite excited to see what promises BF5 holds with their version in Firestorm mode.

Despite facing issues like historical accuracy, a controversy of using female characters that led to a social media stir that probably led to poor pre-order sales, Battlefield V still remains one of 2018's biggest titles regardless of what anyone else thinks about it.

Injustice 2 Scrapped Character Concept Art Revealed

New unused character designs of John Constantine, Krypto the Superdog and Penguin for the game revealed by Injustice 2 concept artist.

Following their immense success with 2013's fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us, NetherRealm Studios came up with a sequel, Injustice 2 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017, that even surpassed its predecessor in many aspects.

The game has a roster full of iconic DC Comics characters as playable fighters as well as other heroes like Hellboy from Dark Horse Comics and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from IDW Publishing. Recently, a number of unused concept arts have revealed a few characters that didn't make it to the final roster.

Shared on ArtStation by senior concept artist Justin Murray, these min-blowing artworks of the characters from Injustice comic books has Batman's protege Bluebird, Detective ChimpEtrigan the DemonJohn Constantine, Krypto the Superdog and Penguin.

During the story arc in comics, they have either sided with The Regime and The Insurgency or chose their own way but there was no apparent reason for excluding them from the game. However, we didn't wait for any official statement and have our own theory on it.

For one, neither Detective Chimp nor Penguin is a competitive fighter who can give other playable characters a tough time. Even occult detective John Constantine is no physical combatant despite him being a highly skilled sorcerer.

Young vigilante hero Bluebird on the other hand could've made it but considering other better-known costumed fighters like Batgirl and Zatanna didn't made it to the sequel, this electrical engineer from Batman comics introduced during the run of Scott Snyder (All-Star Batman – My Own Worst Enemy, Batman – Court of the Owls) had slim chances.

Another plausible reason for these characters not to show up in Injustice 2 maybe because many of them ended up dying in the Injustice: Gods Among Us comic-book series, thus their presence in the game could have been tricky for the storyline to connect.

Etrigan The Demon lost his connection to mortal realm when Jason Blood, his human host was killed in a battle against The Regime. Although John Constantine didn't die after his rebellion of magic community took a stand opposing Superman, he simply left the conflict.

The original publisher for the Mortal Kombat series, NetherRealm Studios may strongly consider another sequel to the Injustice franchise and these characters can even show up in that game if they are somehow brought back to the tie-in comic-books.

According to some recent rumor flying around, the studio is already working on a new project and it can either be a new installment for Mortal Kombat or Injustice 3, which we can only tell for sure once we get some more evidence on hand.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Weaponry Details

Two weeks before release, Rockstar Games revealed details on the available arsenal of weapons from Red Dead Redemption 2.

Up until this point, we saw a few trailers, gameplay reveal, early access contents and learned a lot of details about upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 from developer/publisher Rockstar Games, which is one of the most anticipated titles of this year.

A large part of the gameplay involves a lot of shooting and a Western-themed action-adventure game is meaningless without gunfire. To effectively engage in gunfights, Rockstar has unveiled the huge weaponry of the game to offer players a wide array of variants to choose from.

Apparently, there are 50 different weapons you can pick within the game with some of them has customization options according to their official site. To complement accuracy, damage and range, several types of ammunition are available in-game.

In par with realism, if you do not tend to your guns properly and regularly, they will degrade slowly. However, you can keep it in good working condition with oiling and cleaning. Also, the more you use them, the better you get with them in terms of performance.

Weapon customization using constructive upgrade parts like new barrels, grips, scopes and sights practically make them better while you can match that by adding add engravings, metals, varnishes and woods to provide a more aesthetic look.

Noteworthy mentions of weapons are bolt-action rifle, carbine repeater, cattleman revolver, double-action revolver, pump-action shotgun, sawed-off shotgun, sniper rifle, Springfield rifle and varmint rifle. Aside from their unique types, variety of ammo can significantly alter the effect of a shot on a target.

Depending on your situation at hand, some weapons can particularly come in handy than the others. For example, when you are riding a horse, the double-action revolver will be a good shot. In a close range combat sawed-off shotgun is the best choice for firepower.

When hunting a small game, varmint rifle is what you need for not causing much damage to the meat and skin of your prey. In general, all types of rifle can be fitted with scopes to leave it up to player's choice whether they want regular or scoped aiming.

Ghost Mode puts you and your opponent to go after same targets and execute your kills quickly and smoothly than your competitor. Both of you will start from same point and then will progress onwards on your own to secure kills for points.

The key objective is to earn five points by taking out randomly chosen targets before the other player does. Two assassins will share the same location in separate realities and you can always see everything your opponent is doing as a Ghost version.

As soon as your rival terminates a target, you time window gets shortened to make a kill of your own to balance the score. You shouldn't panic for the ongoing countdown timer on screen and go on a killing spree of non-targets, because that will only blow up your cover and decrease the score.

Instead, try to turn the table on the challenger by taking a first hit on a target before they do. Ghost Mode also demands that you put emphasis on being smart rather than quick as you will start out with limited resources and you have to make the most of it before you find a Ghost Crate with selective items.

The developer team actually planned to remaster the game earlier before the release and it was never meant to be taken as new maps. Players should look at these maps as the ones they have already played but it should give a better feeling after the visual upgrade.

For example, when in Valkenheim map, it should feel cold around as well as look like it and it is carried out with a sense of temperature. The land of Ashfeld on the other hand should convey warmth to seem more realistic in details of visual aspects.

Aside from the base game, the package contains a reversible cover art that lets you pick between Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield on the box art for the game. There are a few downloadable contents added to it, which would be worth of your money if you are nostalgic about the franchise.

The Deluxe DLC Pack gets you five different costumes for both of the protagonists to wear, a Samurai Edge - Albert Model pistol and the game's original soundtrack to swap to.

The DLC costumes for Leon includes a Noir costume, which makes his appearance visually similar to detective Sebastian Castellanos from The Evil Within and the Arklay Sheriff costume bears a striking resemblance to Sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes from post-apocalyptic horror TV show, The Walking Dead.

Claire will receive a Military costume that comes with a vest and her Noir costume adds a fedora hat to let you sport a gangsta look. Then there is the unused Elza Walker costume from the scrapped game Resident Evil 1.5, which looks similar to what race car driver wears.

You can already place a pre-order for Resident Evil 2 Remake on Amazon as they are available now. We can see how Capcom is dedicatedly working piece by piece to re-imagining the survivor horror classic for the fans from 90's and the modern generation.

A brand-new gameplay video featuring Claire Redfield was released earlier that showcased the debut of the nightmarish enemy Lickers in the remake with a bunch of new screenshots. We are eagerly waiting for Leon to encounter the dreaded Tyrant monster, Mr. X.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Introduces Lickers

To revive the horror from past, a new Resident Evil 2 Remake gameplay video is released featuring the menacing Lickers.

At Tokyo Game Show 2018 last month, Resident Evil 2 Remake revealed the first-look of mysterious fan-favorite character Ada Wong with screenshots and a new story trailer. Then there was footage of Claire Redfield fighting the dreaded William Birkin/G-monster.

Recently, brand-new gameplay video of Claire fighting horde of monstrous creatures and a deadly class of bio-weapon known as Lickers in a ravaged Raccoon City is released, courtesy of developer/publisher Capcom.

Taken right from Claire's campaign, the video opens up as she comes across an abandoned, dark hallway blocked with furniture and enters a room at her left. She sees a lone Licker is feeding on a victim and another bloodied dead body lies on the floor next to it.

Without wasting a moment, she draws her M79 grenade launcher and blasted it onto flames before putting two more rounds on it. Another one from the wall above is targeted next but this one is a tough cookie to bake and took too many bullets.

Even though there weren't any constraints like a fixed camera angle or their long tongues hanging from above to give players a jump scare for the first time they met, this confrontation was not any less scary than before because of the sheer aggressiveness of these creatures.

On top of that, they constantly jump around to dodge your bullets and will do ranged attack ruthlessly with their razor-sharp talons when in close proximity, which we can tell is pretty lethal judging by the way Claire reacted to it.

After that, she goes inside what it seems like a morgue where she checks the storage to get supplies like Red Herb from an empty one, got creeped out by some huge cockroaches from the next and a Flash Grenade from another with a corpse beside it.

A few of the corpse were feeling the kick of T-Virus to came back to life and attack her, which she repels with one Acid Round, knife and gunshots. Sooner as she came out of the room, a Licker jumped on top of her only to get smoked in one shot.

We are left to see Tyrant monster of T-103 model, also known as Mr. X, whom we had a brief glimpse of from the E3 trailer. HUNK and Robert Kendo will make their debut alongside the giant, mutant Alligator from the sewers.

Upcoming Darksiders III is all set to launch for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in November 27, 2018. Earlier, the Flame Hollow form of the game's protagonist Fury was showcased in one of the trailer and now we are about to witness her Force Hollow form.

In terms of character progression, the game takes a giant leap and changes a few things about the primary character Fury than her warrior brothers War and Death from prior titles when it comes to appear in battle as the third Horseman of the Apocalypse.

Whereas War used to wield his Chaoseater blade and Death carried The Harvester scythe, Fury's weapon of choice is a 347 bladed whip, Barbs of Scorn. Just as she changes form during battles, her blades can become a Hammer in her Force Fury form.

A reformed Scorn taking the shape of a battle hammer complements her fighting style with a ball of energy around her. In her newest form, she has a purple aura around her and this one is the second form she can take among four by unlocking it throughout the game.

Switching into these different forms and changing your weapon into many shapes is designed for more tactical approach to combat. This presents players with various opportunities to approach their deadly adversaries and defeat them in a confrontation.

Whenever you engage a boss from any of the Seven Deadly Sins, each will fight you differently and challenge your skill in a unique way. For example, Sloth in subway stations will send off his minions to keep you busy and form bubbles of poison to infect you.

Another fine aspect of the game is that there are no arranged lines for you to face the bosses. Players can make up their mind on which boss they want to encounter in various point of the story progression, something that most other game lacks.

The studio shows their clear intention of moving afar from how the series used to move forward with gameplay and about to create a complex character with Fury in Darksiders III, which will be a defining point for the franchise for sure.

When one of her newest form will be revealed soon, we expect to see her display some new and awesome array of abilities while her Scorn probably takes the shape of a powerful blade maybe? We believe, Gunfire Games may even end up giving her the ability of flying.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Has Leveling and Micro-Transactions Issues

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey maybe slowly pushing players to face real-money economy to be done with grinding.

Over the years, developer/publisher Ubisoft's action role-playing game series Assassin’s Creed has evolved a lot and after Assassin’s Creed Origins from last year, it is taken further in the recently released title Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

One such aspect is the character level, which determines what you can and cannot at times. For instance, you can easily engage an enemy of your level or slightly above than that but trying to butt heads with someone more powerful than your grade can be suicidal.

Now you can consider that a pretty clever in-game mechanics to put a hold on where can you move and when. However, that actually feels a less like an open-world game that players would want to explore and it doesn't bother at first until grinding becomes very necessary.

Odyssey is much bigger that Origins, which takes nearly 50 hours to complete and it only means more XP gaining. Though not annoying in the beginning, it becomes quite common and repetitive at later point just for the sake of leveling.

When you will eventually level up a step, you will realize that the surrounding animals and enemies have also leveled with you. Just when you felt that you are now more capable after leveling up, it practically becomes useless and it really sucks!

While playing the story mission, you will realize the hustle it takes for the slightest leveling your character. The side-missions don't hold you back much in terms of rewarding with XP but a spending a considerable amount of time is nearly inescapable.

Odyssey is of course a great experience for playing but at later point XP gaining can become a problem and apparently, Ubisoft has something in the in-game store that can level you up quite faster than playing though or completing those side-quests.

There are a few items you can pick up from the store that takes care of the annoying grinding problem permanently. Purchasing of a "Permanent XP Boost" item will grant you a permanent increase in experience you have earned playing by 50%.

This boost will apply on all of your saved games and everything you will do gets you 50 percent more XP, which costs only 1,000 Helix Credits. The minimum amount to get one of these will cost you only $4.99 for a Base Pack and can spend up to $49.99 for Extra Large Pack.

Ubi Club members have the special chance to buy them using virtual coins to gain 25% more XP. Spending 10 coins earns you a boost and you get plenty of them but they are for a limited time and there will never be enough. You just have to spend some cash at some point.

Although the system of purchasing Helix Credits was present in Origins, they never tried to force players to face the issue of real-money economy through leveling mechanics but Odyssey almost makes it obvious and almost unavoidable to complete the story.

Right now, we are hoping that Ubisoft will probably release a patch to fix this to a manageable point. Whether it is a small mistake in their part or a secret ploy to get into the wallet of the players by forcing them into a punishing circle of crushing struggle remains to be seen.
