SIPWU 8.15.14 – Gamescom Edition

Shadow Realms If you’ve been following the weekly “You’ve Been Chosen” teasers from Bioware then by now you probably know it was revealed during Gamescom. If not, the official title is called Shadow Realms and it’s a PC exclusive game. It’s another 4v1 that combines modern and fantasy worlds in a persistent and changing universe. Here is your first look at the game.

Battlefield: Hardline EA debuted a new multiplayer mode for Battlefield Hardline. Hotwire mode is a high-speed chase mode where players can shoot at other players by shooting out of car windows. An eSports mode was also talked about called Rescue. Rescue is a 5v5 mode where players have 1 life per round and must rescue a hostage.

On the single player front, Visceral meant to greatly improve the campaign aspect of Battlefield. The new style of campaign is based on crime drama TV shows rather to deliver an experience that is more of a thrill ride than previous campaigns. To show us a small glimpse of what it will consist of, a 12 minute story trailer with brief commentary was created, featuring stealth, firefights, planning and the story style to expect.

Alien: Isolation We got a new Alien: Isolation CGI trailer. While there isn’t any gameplay in the trailer, it does show us what we can come to expect of what the game will be like when you have to survive using intuition rather than armaments. Here’s the trailer.

The Witcher III: Wild Hunt The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is an extremely in-depth game with lots of content. This in-depth developer diary shows us a lot of what makes this world unique and exciting; from our hero to the vast open-world and the seemingly mundane to the stuff of legends.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel A Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel trailer was released this week and it is pretty self explanatory.

Mortal Kombat X The beloved fighting franchise’s newest game features a whole lotta new, but this new trailer is focused on an older character. This is the official Kano trailer which highlights Kano and his three highly lethal variations of Cutthroat, Cybernetic, and Commando.
