Assassins Creed Valhalla details

Valhalla goes all-in on the RPG elements

Ubisoft really has us hyped for the next installment of Assassin’s Creed subtitled Valhalla.

Day after that, Ubisoft released a full trailer and a ton of details regarding the story and the gameplay. Besides diving deeper into the RPG mechanics, Valhalla will go all-in with the formula seen in Origins and Odyssey while bringing plenty of improvements to the table. For the full trailer and the full details on the setting, protagonist, and more, check out our original news coverage.

Summer Game Fest seems like a good E3 replacement

Summer Game Fest replaces E3

4 months of game reveals? Sign us up!

Geoff Keighley recently quit his involvement with THE gaming event of the year –  the E3. Many praised his decision, deeming the conference to be old-fashioned and out of touch with the gaming market of today. Well, Geoff hasn’t been sitting idly but has instead been working to offer the industry something completely new. In fact, he has announced an event called Summer Game Fest which will, over a period of four months, digitally bring us a ton of video game news, demos, reveals, and more. For more details on when the event begins as well as the developers and publishers that will participate, check out our original news coverage.

EA Play Live 2020 is upon us

EA Play Live event

EA better bring the big guns

With E3 out of the picture for this year, many developers and publishers are looking to other venues to hold their annual press conferences and reveals. EA seems to be adopting the Nintendo Direct format of informing their player base of what’s to come in the near future with their EA Play Live being held in the form of a digital presentation on June 11th. The last one brought us teases of DLC’s for many known and released EA games but also the reveal of one of the best Star Wars games in recent memory – the Fallen Order, so we are very excited about this one. For more information on where to check out the presentation and what to expect, check out our original coverage.

CDPR is about to drop a ton of Cyberpunk 2077 info

Cyberpunk 2077 more game details

CDPR is ramping up their marketing pre-release

CDPR is also one of the developers opting to host their own digital presentation called Night City Wire through which they plan to reveal new info on Cyberpunk 2077. It’s not like CDPR needs to convince anyone that their game will be a surefire hit but a bit more hype surely doesn’t hurt. With that being said, the game is set to release in just 4 short months, so aside from this event, expect to hear a lot more Cyberpunk 2077 details in the days to come. For more info on Night City Wire and where to tune into the event, check out our original news coverage.

The story of Mortal Kombat 11 kontinues!

Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath Story

Shang Tsung takes the villain spotlight

I think we can all agree that Mortal Kombat 11 has a seriously kickass story. The three and a half hours of cinematics not only featured many if not all fan-favorite characters but some very epic setpieces. To top it all off, it featured a pretty satisfying conclusion that was ripe for exploration in sequels while also giving Netherrealm open hands to do pretty much whatever they want. But, cheeky as they are, they threw a wrench into all that with the announcement of Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath story expansion. With too many new, exciting things to list, we urge you to check out our original news coverage and see the trailer and all the info for yourself.
