Monster Hunter: World Comes to Resident Evil

Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy from Resident Evil series is crossing over with Monster Hunter: World in upcoming event.

According to an annual sales report, developer/publisher Capcom has doubled their profit this year through revenue from digital downloads. Two of their biggest contributors for such growth are Monster Hunter: World and Resident Evil 2.

While every other major AAA-title is currently prepping up for their upcoming Halloween events, Capcom will be joining a bit late with their upcoming Monster Hunter: World X Resident Evil crossover event on November 2019.

Fan-favorite 4th survivor, To-fu will likely to be added as a cosmetic alongside other themed unlocks. Zombies are most probably are going to be a part to play as rival Hunters other than some sort of environmental distraction.

Set within the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead series by renowned Image Comics writer Robert Kirkman (Haunt, Invincible), Saints & Sinners explores human stories in times of major crisis like a zombie apocalypse.

Players will have to deal more than swarm of undead hordes and continue struggling if they are to survive. Although it has nothing to do with Telltale Games, the game is a survival horror that follows choice-based storytelling.

Saints and Sinners VR game is set three years after initial outbreak took place and players will wander within New Orleans a powerful group called The Tower has control over everything and can be more threatening than a pack of zombies.

Entire campaign is around 15 hours worth of story, where you can come across other faction members and get into conflict. Your objective is to look for a lost bunker full of supplies and chop off some undead heads while you are at it.

Often times, VR games fail to give players a gameplay depth and many of them are simply an "immersive experience" through virtual reality but Skydance Interactive is trying their best to provide a proper gaming experience.

Having potential to be a pioneer in next generation of VR gaming, The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners have yet to confirm their final release platforms aside from Oculus Rift, which hopefully will be revealed soon with a gameplay footage.

Game director Neil Druckmann breaks down gameplay details of The Last of Us Part II in newly shown footage.

Ellie is nineteen now and during early phase of the demo, Ellie would share beautiful moments with her companion, Dina. These two spending time together in Wyoming wilderness slowly build up a premise for what comes next.

By second half of demo, she becomes really violent and will stop at nothing to exact revenge on people who hurt her loved ones. When in Seattle, she encounters a hostile group of survivors who kept Joel's brother, Tommy captive.

No matter how cruel and harsh they are, these enemies she faces are real people with friends or families and therefore, taking them down will cause people close to them scream in grief but that is a price you have to pay to survive.

Ellie starts patrolling on horseback through abandoned towns of Jackson, Wyoming in snow. She and Dina go looking for any sign of infected Clickers, looters or even some survivors within empty buildings as their primary objective.

They leave behind the snowy landscape when entering to neighborhood of Seattle, where her surroundings are covered in green. This is where things start going topsy turvy and she had to take a stand against a ruthless enemy group.

Now that she is no longer a little girl, Ellie is more flexible and can do a lot of stuff compared to Joel. She can jump to reach higher areas to find a way out and even able to dodge close-range attacks to save her neck from a slashing axe.

RELATED: The Last of Us Part 2 Gameplay Revealed

Dodging is a newly added feature that can come in very handy in times of avoiding a surprise attack or sort of try to corner you. Naughty Dog has developed an improved AI for opponents to act smarter and be a bit unpredictable at times.

Another latest aspect of her movement is crawling ability that gives her an edge for stealth, allowing her to quickly get out of enemy sight. However, enemies use trained guard dog to sniff you out and track down even if you are hiding.

Of course, you can stay away from them by activating Listen Mode and follow your scent trail but after you manage to kill their handler, whether you chose to leave them or take them down is totally up to your own moral choice.

Further playthrough will unlock abilities for Ellie and there are multiple skill upgrade paths to choose from depending on your preferred playstyle. Stealth focus is largely leaned towards survival and crafting lets her upgrade melee weapons.

Also, since entire studio became very busy creating an ambitious single-player experience, Naughty Dog has confirmed on recent press event to unfortunately backtracking from their early plans of including multiplayer components.

The Last of Us Part II has largely improved on core gameplay mechanics of critically-acclaimed original from 2013 and is coming on two discs due to size of its overall content, which will hopefully be worth waiting for such long.
