E3 Favorites – Prey

by Maverick on

Prey.

Bethesda slayed me with that preview. It was unexpected. It was cinematically beautiful. It captured my attention immediately. In true Bethesda form it made me want more.

Not much is known about the new iteration of the game and Morgan, it’s protagonist, other than he seems to be stuck in a futuristic dystopian groundhog day of sorts.

Really excited to see more from the dev team about this game.

Here’s the official reveal trailer.

 

Clue 1: Check out this tweet from 2K Games’ official Bioshock account:

This is the first ever tweet and they seem to be slowly engaging fans, too.

Clue 2: www.AllGamesDelta.com dig some sneaky digging and found these on the 2K Games website:

1467223962-bioshock-the-collection-art

1467223962-bioshock-the-collection-cover-art

…all of which have since been removed (sneaky, sneaky 2K Games)

Clue 3: The US ESRB posted a Bioshock: The Collection rating

Hey 2K… would you kindly release this already?!

Greetings fellow gamers! We took a little break after the week of E3 and now are ready to put our thoughts on digital paper! Our first review? Why, Horizon Zero Dawn, of course!

We love Guerrilla Games. And we LOVED getting another look at HZD at E3. After hearing the sad new that the game had been pushed to Feb 28, 2017 we were eager to see the updated gameplay and footage in their E3 theater. It definitely did not disappoint. We got to see Aloy interact with AND ride a few new creatures – and look at different ways to craft as well as weapon types. And, no… don’t ask me the names of anything because I don’t remember what they were. They were very pretty though, LOL. 

We even go to play the game for about 10 minutes after the dev play through – I wish I could share pics and content but sadly we weren’t able to record anything while inside.

The open world environment is rich with many items to craft weapons as well as items you get from killing the creatures along the way. The combat is easy to dive into and the crafting actually reminded me of the new Tomb Raider or Far Cry crafting set up. During the demo play I ran around collecting resources and killing everything in sight in order to craft different arrows and sling shot ammo to see what effect they would have against my prey.

I already loved this game from the gameplay and cinematics I’ve seen but now even more so from getting hands on with it. I want more! Unfortunately I’ll have to wait until the game comes out in 2017. *insert VERY sad face here*

Square Enix is at it again! They are expanding the Deus Ex universe to include:

  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – Breach Mode
  • Deus Ex GO Mobile Option

Here’s the Breach 101 trailer.

Here’s the GO reveal teaser.

This is the official press release:

MONTRÉAL, CANADA – 8 June 2016 – Award-winning Canadian studios Eidos®-Montréal and Square-Enix® Montréal today announced two new additions to the Deus Ex Universe®: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided® – Breach and Deus Ex GO™, both bringing new elements to the rich transmedia universe.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Breach is an innovative game mode included in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. This new take on the game offers, for the very first time, an arcade approach on the gameplay of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, providing players with a connected puzzle shooter experience. As a Ripper, your objective is to obtain and sell highly classified corporate data by infiltrating some of the world’s most secure servers, using the funds you acquire to upgrade both your skills and arsenal. As you play, the rewards you earn, including XP, credits, and booster packs, will allow you to face the increasing difficulty of the game. Challenge yourself, your friends, and people from around the world in the ultimate Deus Ex® arcade twist. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Breach is a live game mode, introducing new challenges and features by rolling out updates on a regular basis.

“We are introducing a brand new game mode to Deus Ex. In addition to being a new visual approach for the players, the Breach mode broadens the lore of the Deus Ex universe,” said David Anfossi, Head of Studio at Eidos-Montréal. “Breach also reinforces Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s gameplay experience with a totally different setting.”

Deus Ex GO is a turn-based infiltration puzzle game set in a stylized interpretation of the Deus Ex Universe. As double agent Adam Jensen, you’ll use hacking, combat, and augmentations to solve the most challenging puzzles of the entire GO series. Work alongside your allies in TF29 and the Juggernaut Collective as you infiltrate locations to unravel the conspiracy behind a terrorist plot.”


“With Deus Ex, we are taking the GO franchise to another level. We are building on the learnings of Hitman™ and Lara Croft® to go a step further with Deus Ex in terms of visual, game design and social features” said Patrick Naud, Head of Studio at Square Enix Montreal.
The Deus Ex Universe is also expanding outside of the video game world: Eidos-Montréal has partnered with Open Bionics, the award-winning robotics start-up and Razer, the world leader in creating connected devices and software for gamers to bring Deus Ex inspired augmentations to life. The three companies will partner up to help bridge the gap between fiction and reality, working together to design, 3D print, scan, power, and create affordable bionic hands. This initiative will combine the expertise of each company, with the ultimate goal being to make fashionable robotic prosthesis accessible to a larger audience. More information can be found here.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will launch on August 23rd for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.

Deus Ex GO will be arriving this summer on phones and tablets.
