The game will include all three downloadable expansions as well as four dinosaur packs, and hits in November. At this stage, it seems to be exclusive to the eShop.

We Got A Cheeky Look At The New Call Of Duty Black Ops: Cold War Campaign

The scene is from early in the game and shows off a critical point in the narrative. The developers also reiterated that the game will feature choices that can have later impacts, as well as multiple endings.

Our First Ever Look At The Intriguing Next-Gen Action Game Unknown 9

The co-op mode looks as hectic as ever, and features a new suite of surgeries to……attempt. The game is released now for the Epic Game Store.

The trailer is a live-action, gritty Walking Dead style affair with a few shots of gameplay too. The game is coming to all major platforms – both current and next gen.

The Freelance Police Are Returning – Sam & Max Are Back In A Brand New Game, But Details Are Scarce

The trailer perfectly captures the vibe of the classic duo but we really didn’t learn much beyond that. Some rumours suggest it’s a VR game.

Blizzard Debuted Their Brand New World of Warcraft Animated Short To Get You Excited For Shadowlands (And A Date Too)

Some great art on display here, folks. It’s called Bastion, and there’s three more. They also confirmed the expansion will be hitting on 27th October 2020. Which is nice.

The game is being developed by a Canadian studio and marks the first time the franchise has made the jump to games.

They’re a brand new style of level which are a “peek back into time” where Neo was testing Crash and Coco. They’re puzzle room style levels that are apparently super hard.

We Got A Look At Teardown, A Minecraft Looking Game With Impressive Destruction Physics

The aim of the game is to perform the perfect heist by breaking into structures. The twist? You can demolish almost every major wall or support structure. It looks oddly satisfying.

Little Nightmares II Looks Creepy As Ever And Is Coming Next Year

There appears to be a little bit more combat and lots of horrible puppets if that’s your thing. And a creepy slender man too. Love that for me. The game hits in February, and will probably have some more footage as Gamescom plays out.

We Got Another Gaudy Look At WWE 2K Battlegrounds

The Undertaker made Finn Balor piss and really what more could you ask for.

You probably know what to expect already, but this is shaping up to be a solid remake.

The footage is intriguing and the concept even more so. Think groundhog day meets Apex Legends. It’s due in early 2021 for the current generation of consoles.

We Finally Got A First Look At LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Gameplay

So much effort has been put into restoring the old games and translating the new films into this game too, but unfortunately, with so much effort it looks to have been pushed to next year.

A Weird Human Meatball Simulator Game Is Available For Switch and PC RIGHT NOW

It’s called Struggling and that’s probably because I’m struggling to work it out right now. But it has co-op!

Microsoft Showed Off Age Of Empires III: Definitive Edition

The game features enhanced audio, redone 4K visuals, and two new civilisations – the Inca and the Swedes. There are also two new game modes too and cross-platform multiplayer. It’s coming to Windows and will be available as part of Game Pass for PC.

We Got Another Look At Chorvs And Yes It’s Chorvs Not Chorus

The game features 4K visuals, raytracing, and intense space ship battles. It’s a next gen exclusive too, obviously.

Fall Guys Season 2 Looks Ye Olde Awesomey (idk)

In an exclusive sneak peek, we saw a bunch of games that are inspired by the middle ages. There were also new costumes including dragons and witches, which is awesome. Oh and wizards and vikings too. It’s all a bit much really (in a good way). Hopefully we don’t have to wait much longer.

Medal of Honor – Above and Beyond Looks VeRy Good (Yes, It’s VR)

The game is an Oculus exclusive being developed by Respawn. It looks distinct enough from every other military shooter, and kind of makes me want an Oculus. The game releases this year.

Spellbreak Is A Free To Play Arena Game Where You Cast Spells And Errr Break

The game looks like a discount Breath of The Wild visually but it seems to be a pretty fun magic-based arena multiplayer game. Oh and it’s available now for all consoles. And it’s free to play.

Turrican Is Back!

It’s being developed by Factor 5 in celebration of the series 30th Anniversary.

Destiny 2: Beyond Light Introduces The Stasis Subclasses In Another Trailer

I’m so happy for Destiny fans at this point. It hits on November 10th.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Had A Seven Minute Demo

The demo was very similar to the one we previously saw at the Playstation 5 event, but it still was nice to see it in its entirety. It’s a launch window title too.
