Far Cry 5 Game Awards 2018 Teaser

Ubisoft goes full post-apocalyptic with Far Cry series in a new teaser trailer for The Game Awards 2018.

The latest installment of action-adventure first-person shooter game series Far Cry from developer/publisher Ubisoft was Far Cry 5 that came out earlier this year and became one of the fastest-selling games of the franchise despite controversy.

Now, ahead of The Game Awards 2018, Ubisoft has unveiled a brand-new cinematic trailer for their upcoming project as a follow-up to the series that has a post-apocalyptic vibe. Though the video doesn't give away much, we can still sum up a few part on our own.

Take a look at this video of upcoming Far Cry project/sequel with a short narrative below released this afternoon.

Though, we don't have much details on our hand to work with, the teaser surely looks like it is connected to FC5 and may even serve up a follow-up sequel, whereas all of the previous games from the series came out as standalone releases.

The opening shot of the teaser shows us a farmhouse across wheat fields and mountains in the distance, which has a striking resemblance to Hope County, Montana. Then a sudden nuclear explosion goes off on the horizon with a blinding light and a mushroom cloud blooming.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR FAR CRY 5.

Everything goes up in flame and the wheat fields get destroyed as we see it happen in slow motion. Then years after, that place saw blue sky but the world that emerged from the husk of the old one is not the one that had any hope in it.

You cannot make something concrete out of these vague images for sure but the nuclear meltdown event most probably is the one we saw from the ending of Far Cry 5. It seems that a mixture of Fallout and RAGE 2 is coming this way by the looks of it.

Now, we will have to wait some more to get a full reveal of the new game at The Game Awards event to know whether Ubisoft is sending players on post-apocalyptic journey into post-nuclear Montana by moving far from the rest of the series or go to another direction.

Taking in account that it hasn't been a full year since Far Cry 5 was released and launching multiple DLC packs already, the company is ready to work with the same IP is quite interesting. We just hope the reveal excites us and everyone in the end by offering fans another spectacular open-world sandbox.

Alien: Blackout May be Next Alien Game

20th Century Fox trademarks the name "Alien: Blackout" for a possible upcoming video game title in the making.

After the science fiction horror franchise of Aliens began its journey back in 1979, it saw many sequel movies, crossovers with Predator film series, and most frequently adapted into comic-books by Dark Horse Comics publications and video game media for a several decades now.

It stepped into the world of video games in 1982 as maze game based on the original movie and got a dozen of releases on different platforms. Some recent developments from 20th Century Fox studio suggest that we are in for a new Alien game soon.

RELATED: FoxNext to Develop New Alien Video Game

The title Alien: Blackout as recently been trademarked by Fox on the World Intellectual Property Organization website, where it clearly states to be a video game property and definitely not an upcoming movie or TV show.

Back in January, it was revealed that FoxNext Games is about to work on a new AAA-Alien shooter title for PC and consoles in association with Cold Iron Studios, which will deliver a total action-packed experience full of Xenomorphs to all of the fans.

Also, there are speculations that very soon the game could even be announced at The Game Awards 2018. This rumor is powered by a recent photo posted by video game legend Hideo Kojima on Twitter during his tour at the 20th Century Fox office and the official Twitter account for TGA responds to it as well.



RELATED: Kojima Teasing Another Death Stranding Trailer?

Another interesting part is that The Game Awards has been marketing this year's event with a tagline "Worlds Will Change" right next to a "W" logo. Some enthusiastic fans over the internet suggest this to be the Weyland-Yutani Corporation logo from Alien universe.

The similarities between the logo could be purely coincidental but it seems highly suspicious when the Twitter handle for The Game Awards responds to Kojima with their "Worlds Will Change" slogan in a cryptic manner of reply.



RELATED: Devil May Cry Animated Series Confirmed

The closest and the most recent release from the series are Aliens: Colonial Marines and Alien: Isolation. The former took place right after the events of James Cameron's Aliens movie from 1986, which was gravely bashed by fans for a very poor AI as a result of a typo in code.

The latter came out after a year later as a first-person-shooter survival horror game from developer Creative Assembly and publisher Sega, which somehow managed to encapsulate the suspense and claustrophobic settings of the franchise right.

Aside from the recently title, we do not know any other news or information about the story of the game or whatsoever. However, now that 20th Century Fox has secured the trademark for them, we hope to hear more about the game soon and probably on December 6, at The Game Awards 2018.

If Hideo Kojima is really involved in the Alien: Blackout project, then there is a chance that the series may find redemption into the video game media after so many botched attempt to bring the Alien horde from the furthest corner of the galaxy to your preferred gaming platform.

As one of their notable feature, Battlefront II offers players to assume the role of popular Star Wars characters from prequel, original and sequel trilogies, thus bridging all three era of the franchise aside from a unique playable campaign.

Expansions and updates released for the game till date includes a limited time Ewok Hunt game mode in Night on Endor from Return of the Jedi and Han Solo content to celebrate the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story movie earlier this year.

Back in June, developer EA DICE and publisher Electronic Arts decided to include new content for the game related to Clone Wars, which essentially bridges the three years gap between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith movie.

The four voice actors from the original series; James Arnold Taylor, Matt Lanter, Corey Burton and Matthew Wood would return to voice for Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Count Dooku and General Grievous respectively in the Clone Wars DLC.

If you have looked at the track record of Star Wars Battlefront II, then you already know that the game received heavy backlash even before the release for including loot boxes and micro-transactions, which even caused their stock price to drop.

Including a Clone Wars DLC featuring the original voice casts from the TV show not only brings new level of detail to the game but also intensifies the hype (Darth Vader's heavy breathing sound) of the upcoming season that still awaits an official release date.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout Battle Royale Reveal

Battle Royale mode Blackout for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 finally unveils their first impressive look.

When this years' release from Call of Duty franchise was revealed as Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, people was most excited to know about a Battle Royale mode, Blackout which was about to change the course of the genre.

Finally, developer Treyarch and publisher Activision has unveiled a first look at the most anticipated game mode from their upcoming multiplayer first-person shooter title and from the initial look at it, we know one thing for sure and that it is going to be epic.

The combat in Blackout Battle Royale mode covers land, air and water with an intention to make it as big as possible. When it finally hits PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, players are open to explore iconic multiplayer maps like Cargo, Hydro, Nuketown and Turbine.

Rather than putting barbed wire barricades or throwing explosives, playing with your best tactics can be your only savior. Adding chopper to vehicular combat was the next best idea after unleashing hordes of zombies into the fight.

Considering the game have to compete with already established Battle Royale titles like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, developers tried hard to create their own version better.

A maximum of 80 players can take part in a match at a time and whereas that number is not the biggest among other titles, Black Ops 4 surpasses any other titles in terms of vehicles and weapons variety. The game will be launched on October 12 and Blackout beta will start first on PS4 from September 10.

Although, Activision is not the first company to bring out Battle Royale games to the market but it looks like they sure are going to reinvent the field by setting a new level though "Blackout" if Battlefield V somehow fails to impress with the same type of game mode "Firestorm".

In the beginning, the absolute removal of any campaign mode from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was quite shocking for many fans but by the looks of it, Treyarch has really tried hard to compensate for that.

Great news is that, players who don't own the Season Pass or the Shadow War DLC can still become a part of the experience if the ones who own the above arrange an in-game party and invite other friends to join in. However, this feature will be limited to Multiplayer maps and War Mode mission only. Party leader and his pals can battle their way through August 28 to October 28. This is indeed a great initiative from Activision for letting more players to take part together and possibly purchase it later.

Call of Duty: WWII went on to become a best-seller title over consoles after it came out in 2017 and currently is available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Shadow War will be releasing on August 28 for PS4 first as a timed exclusive due to a contract with Sony. No release date for other two platforms is revealed yet but we believe the date will be a month later, possibly September 28.

People are so busy with the anticipation of upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 these days from first-person shooter Call of Duty series, they have stopped talking about one of the best-selling titles of 2017, Call of Duty: WWII. So, Activision and Sledgehammer Games decided to shake things up a little bit and so, they announced a limited-time community event titled "Days of Summer" with lots of brand-new content to keep you busy during summer time and try to cool off at the same time.

For those who like big things in small packages, there is a new map called Sandbox, where players will be inside of an actual sandbox, fighting as a green tiny toy soldier made of plastic. You get to explore in a beach area throughout huge sandcastles and find yourself in an environment, which is clearly unlike anything you have ever experienced in CoD: WWII. Those toy army men are available in green and gray color that actually makes everyone from a same team look indifferent.

As you are about to wander into the beach area, you will notice many props of summertime the development team has added for fun and then there is Captain Butcher. He's about to give you some trouble with his magnifying glass and will be burning the center of the map. So, you just cannot go out there and shoot around. Now, aside from combating your opponents in a sandy landscape between buckets, hose pipes and giant rubber duckie, you have to watch your back on your own.

Days of Summer event also brings back aerial dogfighting mode, which got updated and has new features in it now. A War Mode mission known as Operation Husky from the game's DLC Pack 2, where there was a final objective to complete and it was a dogfight. Previously, there were environmental obstacles that would not let you fly over the skies of Egyptian Pyramids or Crimean Mountains. However, they made it possible to fly above clouds with your zeppelins to rule the blue.

Three new summer-themed weapons, Ribeyrolles SMG, 3-Line sniper rifle and the Automaton are introduced as part of the timed event. Varieties of themed gears are rolled in to pack your arsenal as you join the battle. The event will end on August 28 and Sandbox map will come to PlayStation 4 first before PC and Xbox One. Instead of latching on to the serious tone of WWII, Days of Summer community event actually takes things easily and encourages players to be a little silly while they can.

In accordance to the increasing hype for the game, a brand-new Multiplayer Beta trailer was released earlier, showcasing brief key-moments from the beta test.

We see that the characters look quite different from the playable operators we saw before and this is probably because; they are highly customizable for more personalized experience. Another notable part from the trailer is 15 seconds of glimpses on battle royale mode Blackout. There were basically two groups of four people going against each other, which suggest that players can go up solo or in squads. Beta opens up with six maps but two of them are yet to reveal and five modes to try.

No progress made during the beta test period will be carried over to the final release of CoD: BO4, which is regularly seen in Free Weekend but participate in the program will surely earn an exclusive calling card for them when the game finally launches. However, completing the entire Multiplayer Beta is going to reward players with a Permanent Unlock Token, which can be used to unlock equipment or weapons in post-launch content Create-a-Class.

Aside from physical copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, ordering digital copies from online through Battle.net, Microsoft/Xbox Store or PlayStation Store can also get you into the fun without redeeming a beta code on official Call of Duty website. We are still waiting for details on Blackout Beta and possible release date in September to announce by Treyarch or Activision. The reason for them to not arrange an open beta is to make fans preorder the game and test out experience in a minimal scale.
