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.

Check out this new clip showcasing new and old footage of the game to sum up where all of it is going altogether.

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.

Horizon Zero Dawn Board Game Announced

After receiving praise from critics for PlayStation 4-exclusive title Horizon Zero Dawn, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Guerrilla Games also enjoyed this action role-playing game being one of the best-selling games on the platform in 2017. That leads Steamforged Games to go for a Kickstarter campaign to launch a tabletop version of the game. If they are triumphant in this operation to fund their board game developing project, fans will have the chance to explore HZD in a unique way.

Already worked with board games that are based on fan-favorite video games like Dark Souls and Resident Evil 2, Steamforged Games is most probably going for another of their successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Picking HZD for the project was for an incredible open world full of mechanised creatures it offered beauty and danger to fans in a contrast that was never done before. Guerrilla Games and Sony are closely incorporated with them in development of this tabletop.

For starter, the Horizon Zero Dawn board game project has just a rendered piece of outcast protagonist and skilled warrior Aloy with a staff like weapon in her hand. Then there is a piece of those self-replicating combat robot Scrapper, one of those mechanical beasts that dwell in her hunting ground and provides resource loots when reduced to pieces. Both of these figures are still not colored but still looks promising enough for surely to become astounding pieces when complete.

Currently, their designs are in a very initial level and received only primary rendering, which are awaiting approval from license owners. Although they don't have much to show just yet but given their track record, you can bet that we are about to witness another dynamic experience on board and card. Besides, the studio members are huge fans of Horizon Zero Dawn from the moment of release, which not only gives them a sound understanding of the game but also to connect with fans.

Fallout 76 Have No Cross-Play, Because of Sony

Forthcoming action RPG Fallout 76 from Bethesda won’t have cross-platform play, because Sony is reluctant to support the feature.

Considering upcoming action role-playing game Fallout 76 from Bethesda Softworks is going to be the first online multiplayer title of the series but it will not have the cross-platform play feature in it and Sony Entertainment is the one to blame for that. When asked about why they won't support cross-play in their latest forthcoming title, director and creative leader of Bethesda, Todd Howard set the record straight by stating how Sony was not as helpful as everyone else.

There was a time when cross-play over different gaming platforms might have sounded like a far-fetched idea but these days, they are not. However, for owners of Sony consoles, they still are a dream. Many players would have hoped to have the experience though this game but seems like; they are more worried about not getting the cut and not being left out. They simply did not like the concept of someone spending money for games on other platform and then trying to play it on their consoles.

Fallout 76 is releasing worldwide in November 14, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Microsoft has already came on board with cross- console play a few months ago with Rocket League but Sony was not as sporting as their competitor and decided not to participate. Most recently, the company raised their bar of ridiculousness by preventing players from using their Fortnite account to play the game on Nintendo Switch. They are taking the same stand with Fallout series as well.

Director Howard said that they had plans to include cross-platform for multiplayer in their game but that is currently not possible because of Sony, as they weren't as helpful as the studio wanted them to be. This clearly signifies that developers are quite pissed at their policy but maybe serious pressure from everyone can make them change their mind. Microsoft and Nintendo already teamed up for this initiative of sharing their platform with games like Minecraft and Fortnite.

Allowing cross-platform play is very consumer friendly step as many gamers have their friends who own a different console and would still love to join in for a game together. It was the courtesy of former Sony Online Executive John Smedley, we know now that the company only didn't take part because of a dumb reason like money and not considering player satisfaction at all. In their defense, they pointed out that Sony wouldn't take part in order to provide a safe experience for their players.

Back in 216, when Bethesda allowed mod support for Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition on PC and Xbox One through "Creation Club", the service was not available on PlayStation 4. When inquired, the publisher revealed that they were forced to give up because of their critical evaluation process that doesn't want players to be able to do anything they wanted. While they were holding back PS4 players, Microsoft didn't waste time to take leverage over their competitor.
