A spin-off of the companies bone shattering, organ piercing and testicle removing Sniper Elite series the game sees you return again with up-to three friends to fight the World War II undead menace.

Thomas Was Alone indie game designer Mike Bithell has today released a new trailer for his upcoming futuristic Robin Hood themed stealth-um-up, Volume. The latest video showcases a fresh array of enemy types to face/avoid as you navigate the VR world.
As a little tease, the quasi recognisable tones of Andy Serkis can also be heard for the first time as the games chief villain, Guy Gisborne. Serkis, most famous for his voice and motion capture roles as Gollum in Lord of the Rings series and Caesar in the recent Planet of the Apes flicks, has dabbled with voice work for video games in the past (Enslaved being his most prominent role) so it’ll be interesting to read more about his involvement in the project.
Have you ever wondered what happens in your home when you’re not around? Ever find your possessions in a mess with jam smeared all over your furniture? Don’t call Ghostbusters just yet as I think the BAFTA award winning indie company Bossa Studios, makers of the enjoyable and cack-handed fun Surgeon Simulator 2013, may have the definitive answer!I am Breadin its own words is “the beautiful story of one slice of bread’s epic and emotional journey as it embarks upon a quest to become toasted”. Reminiscent of the equally crazy controlled cephalopod mollusc in disguise game Octodad, players must navigate a house using your clumsy digits to find the meaning behind your doughy existence (I suspect) and have some fun with physics.
Everybody knows that you can’t have a game launch these days without a launch trailer. Ubisoft, as the current champion holders for T.P.M. (trailers per minute) do not disappoint with this gorgeous CGI submission for its MMO “CAR-PG” racer, The Crew.
Ubisoft would appear to be on the offensive! With some mainstream bad press off the back of Assassin’s Creed Unity (I still can’t play it on PC) the company seem to be keen to reassure Joe Game Buying Public that its new online car MMO IP, The Crew, is in safe hands. The games director, Stéphane Beley, has taken to YouTube to answer directly some of the communities hot topics and also talk changes/implementations made after the recent beta. Will the launch go smoother than a Lionel Richie song, or will it be like a NASA rocket? Find out next week.
As a bonus I’ve also added an exclusive The Crew remix of Andy C & Fiora’s “Heartbeat Loud” which’ll feature in-game. If you’re a D&B-head, you’ll no doubt get a kick out of this track.
Revving closer to launch, Ubisoft have released a “101” trailer covering everything you need to know about it’s upcoming MMO CAR-PG (see what they did?), The Crew – and boy does it have a lot to cover in 8 minutes.
Those PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners who’d previously missed access to the beta will be happy to learn all can burn some rubber in the open beta from next Tuesday November 25th, through to Friday November 28th. To play simply head over to the PlayStation or Xbox One dashboard and look under the “Games” page.
Developer and publisher Tripwire Interactive are back talking about the dismemberment and evisceration tech behind its upcoming sci-fi/horror competitive co-op title, Killing Floor 2. In the new dev diary we hear again from the team who explain a little more on how the dynamic M.E.A.T. system (massive evisceration and trauma) works, and what it looks like when used in conjunction with some of the different weapon types.
5 Lives Studios have released a new trailer for its dystopian cyberpunk real-time action-strategy game Satellite Reign. After a successfully backed Kickstarter campaign last year, the Australian based studio are happy to announce that the game is coming to Steam as part of the platforms Early Access program.
The game is a real-time, class-based strategy title which sees you control a team of four operatives, each with distinct and unique abilities. Players must collectively battle for control of a fully simulated, living cyberpunk city. 5 Live Studios collectively have previously worked on such notable games as GTA IV, Darksiders II, L.A. Noire and (most importantly) Syndicate Wars.
Satellite Reign launches on Steam Early Access in December 2014 for PC, Linux and Mac.
As the timer ran down, Day For Night Games managed to secure under half of the Kickstarter funding it required to get its surreal fourth dimensional ‘timey-wimy’ game The Black Glovesuccessfully backed. In an update from the ex-Bioshock team they wished to thank everyone involved but advised that they would not be starting another campaign to seek further money.
The game would have seen you play as a curator to a 1920’s theatre called The Equinox. Your job would have you traversing time to alter the past aiming to restore the site, and it’s failing artistic residents, to a prime whilst avoid roaming creatures.
The Black Glovewas intended for launch on PC and Mac. A PS4 version was later added to the Kickstarter campaign along with plans for Oculus Rift support.
The Crew will release for the PC, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on December 2nd in North America and the 5th across Europe. Each pack will be available for purchase on its own for £5.49, or all packs can be purchased as part of the Season Pass for £19.99. The Crew Season Pass will be available for all systems or can be purchased in a bundle with the main game as part of the digitally distributed The Crew Hold Edition. Being a Season Pass holder will award you exclusive cars at launch and gain early access to each of the four car packs one week in advance.
