State of Decay 2 Lands on Windows 10 and Xbox One in 2017

Sate_of_Decay2_SC02 - Edited

If you thought you could survive alone? You’d be wrong. The dead are coming and they are more aggressive than eve. In the latest reveal for Microsoft’s Xbox One, we’ve gotten our first glimpses of State of Decay 2, which is quite the gorgeous game.

In their title we’ve learned that the game will feature co-operative play that will
Microsoft has announced that State of Decay 2 is coming out in 2017, and it’s an Xbox One and Windows 10 exclusive.

The CGI trailer showed a trio of survivors barreling down the road, taking out zombies staggering alongside the road. The game is a cross-play title with Windows 10, so it would seem that co-op play is a component of the title. The motto of the trailer was, “Nobody Survives Alone.”

Later in the game’s showcase, gameplay was seemingly shown, with survivors banding together and searching empty cabins and helping each other.

Fallout 4’s Future Has Been Outlined and it Involves Vaults

Fallout4_NukaWorld_E3_02_1465776998

If you ever wondered what more insanity could come to Fallout 4, tonight has made your wonders come to an end as Bethesda Game Studios’ Todd Howard has outlined the future of the title. Let alone does this include some new tools for you to use such as Elevators, Conveyor Belts, and the likes. This future also includes a new theme park entitled Nuka World that’ll be just what it sounds like; a theme park. Let alone does it launch near or with the Contraption’s DLC, we also got a look at one DLC that just may have stolen the show.

2D Boxshot Wizard v1.1

The DLC that definitely caught the eyes of fans was the newly announced “Vault-Tec Workshop” DLC that will allow fans to create their own Vault. Let alone do they get to do this from the ground up, players will also be able to create what their Vault’s scientific goals are. Whether this is testing their vaults prowess in physique, substance uses, or even just all around to have one, the Vaults seem to be ones that can easily be invaded. If anything? It sounds like our dreams for Fallout Shelter being apart of Fallout 4 itself. If that’s the case? Expect some fun, weird, and delightful moments.

As of now the DLC does not have dates, but we are sure they’ll be coming soon as mods have just landed on Xbox One and later this month for PlayStation 4. Stay tuned for more updates.

Could Bethesda Just Teased a New Game? Or Was Prey “Colossus”?

If you had a keen eye, you noticed this screen I”ll be posting below.

bethesda_colossus

In the screen, we can take notice of titles we know rather well such as Keen, Wolfenstein 3D, Wolfenstein: The New Order/Old Blood, DOOM, and a few others, but what we don’t get a description of? Is what New Colossus is. If anything, we’re beginning to assume that New Colossus could very well be the title of the next upcoming Wolfenstein or Rage titles. While it seems more logical due to the other, we’re definitely curious to what Bethesda hasn’t announced quite yet.

What are your thoughts? Do you think it’ll be a new title exclusive to QuakeCon or one of the main stage events this week? Let us know in the comments.

Prey Reboot Announced With a Creepy Trailer

Prey_Trailer_SC01

You may remember a title by the name of Prey. The title was originally made as a successor to take along the roles of titles like Quake, DOOM, and eventually would fall silent. To some? It took the spirit of Turok and evolved it. To others, it was a title that merged what we loved about Quake and others.

Today, Arkane Studios Austin and Bethesda Zenimax have openly announced that the title is in development for PC and new-gen consoles. If development shows as it is, the title will fit in perfectly with the 2017 lineup with Quake Champions and The Elder Scrolls Legends.
