Tom Clancy’s the Division

With exclusive characters for platforms – tablet in this case and real time teamwork the trailer boasts of how the experience would be totally new one for each platform. Set in a vulnerable, fragile yet complex society this installment of Tom Clancy’s is bound to rock the market in more ways than one.
This comes in after the jolly announcement by Ubisoft Massive that The Division will also be made available on PC after a highly popular demand by users. This Third Person Shooter Action & Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game is slated for a fourth quarter release in 2014.
Watch Dogs DedSec Trailer
It seems like Ubisoft is looking to create vibes without giving away too much about their big titles. Watch Dogs received a brand new trailer at the conference day of Gamescom but in line with everything shared previously, it doesn’t delve deeper into the storyline of the game.
We do know how Watch Dogs is going to be a futuristic hacking and stealth based open world action adventure but only thing new they have shared through the trailer is an organization called DedSec.
One that boasts of keeping the city safe from the vigilante Aiden and one that they are not aligned with Aiden. The vigilante, in multiple scenes manipulates the city’s controls, for instance; street signals and the electricity of the whole city.
Go here to know more about the gameplay of the title that might as well get a film adaptation. Ubisoft Montreal will be shipping the game to stores in November for the current generation consoles as well as PS4 and Xbox One and PC.
Battlefield 4 Paracel Storm Multiplayer Trailer
Blood surging battle sequences and eventualities that demand constant vigilance are the reasons why the Paracel Storm Multiplayer Trailer of Battlefield 4 has created a massive impact on the audience.
EA Digital Illusions has dug a little deeper to give us a look at the life like multiplayer of the game for the first time –Gamescom deserved that. Expect yourself head to head with your friends at the same time when US, China and Russia do the same. Battlefield 4 supports up to 64 players across Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Here’s more about the multiplayer mode team play, kits and enhancements.
The trailer ends with a ship on fire wrecking a Caribbean beach –whatever was left of it owing to the battle and an offer of China Rising Expansion Pack for those who preorder. The game hits the market on 29th of October.
Titanfall Gameplay Demo
This is the first official public display of how the game actually plays out since the initial screening at E3, so yes it is worth a watch. No doubt it is the same grayish combat game – nothing we haven’t seen before except for, of course, giant mechs and jetpacks rolling in at the speed of fire!
The demo shows a paced up, frenzied gameplay that is bound to give you an adrenaline rush. You get to fly with jetpacks, ride the mechs or make them follow you during the combat and just as the demo ends sometimes you need to flee back to your evac point in case you are defeated.
Titanfall comes out in the first quarter of 2014 to Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
Lords of the Fallen Debut
We first heard of this title in August last year prior to which Lords of the Fallen was simply being called Project RPG by Tomasz Gop one of the guys behind Witcher 1 & 2.
City Interactive Games has been recognized as the developers behind it since long but this is the first time they have come up with visuals to show to the public. We have been told that the game takes inspiration from Mortal Kombat, Tekken and somewhat Dark Souls –let’s see how unique they can make it after that.
The trailer sets the tone of the game with a standoff between the hammer wielding protagonist Harkyn and a fallen god whom Harkyn has stood up to, vowing of defiance. This leads to a fight between him and a minion sent by the fallen god – though it is huge.
This is a next gen role playing game we are talking about so expect some fiery content. You can read more about the game here if the debut trailer doesn’t give you much to go on.
Batman: Arkham Origins “Nowhere to Run”
Firefly gets introduced as the eighth antagonist in the upcoming installment of Batman franchise – a jetpack riding pyromaniac who tends to set fire to everything. Nowhere to Run was displayed at the Gamescom taking a more stylized line of content rather than solid insights into the gameplay.
For instance, not much was shown or told regarding the kind of new gadgets or weapons that would be involved.
Although the video is more like a collage of fighting sequences combined where Batman is taking on random Antagonists, it is still exciting. This now totals the list of Bat-enemies to: Black Mask, Joker, Bane, Deathstroke, Copperhead, and, The Penguin, Deadshot, the Mad Hatter and Firefly. Arkham Origins hits the stores on 25th of October worldwide for PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U.
Battlefield 4 Premium Official Video
Here goes for all the BF crazies; get access to weapons, game modes, vehicles, expansion packs and maps before your friends do. The premium account of Battlefield 4 is now official and it comes with a handful of perks but at a cost of 50 bucks.
With October 29th drawing nearer, we’re assuming quite a few of you would want to indulge into something that rings 5 expansion packs your way through till the season ends. The expansion packs have been titled: China Rising, Second Assault, Naval Strike, Dragon’s Teeth and Final Stand.
To be exact you get 2 weeks early access –now that’s quite some time to get ahead of the rest, worth the 50 dollars?
