[The Game Awards 2018] ‘Devil May Cry V’ Gets Xbox One-Exclusive Demo, New Trailer And More

Dante and company will be available for an exclusive demo starting today on Xbox One.

As revealed last night at The Game Awards (along with a brand new trailer), Capcom’s Devil May Cry V will have a downloadable demo featuring Nero on the streets of Red Grave City. The demo is exclusive to Xbox One for the time being, so PlayStation 4 owners (and PC gamers) will have to wait.

In addition, Capcom also revealed some multiplayer details, as well as the returning Bloody Palace Mode. Coming to the game as a free update shortly after launch, Bloody Palace Mode is an elimination-style mode that puts the player up against hordes of fast-approaching enemies and bosses until they reach the end. As for the multiplayer portion, there’s the new Cameo System. While online, players can jump into other players’ games as they battle demons around Red Grave City to assist. Host players can then rate the other’s cameo in-game (if they’re feeling generous).

Finally, there’s the new trailer, which sheds some light on the mysterious V character we’ve seen alongside Dante and Nero. Unlike the flashy and brash styles of the two veterans, V can summon three different demons to assist in battle: Shadow, a panther-like creature that changes his shape for close-range attacks, Griffon, a bird demon that can not only carry V across the map, but also rain lightning bolts, and Nightmare, a gigantic demon that packs hard hits that can also fire beams of light to destroy any approaching foes.

I don’t know about you, but between Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 remake and Devil May Cry V, there’s going to be some tough choices to devote your playing time to next year.

Devil May Cry V launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 8th, 2019.

[The Game Awards 2018] ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ Wins Big, ‘God of War’ Wins Bigger

Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 took home the lion’s share of the awards tonight at The Game Awards 2018, but it was Sony Santa Monica that snagged the big one.

Nominated in eight categories, the action-Western game took home the awards for Best Narrative, Best Score/Music, Best Audio Design and Best Performance. It was also nominated in Game of the Year and Best Game Direction, but lost out in both categories to God of War. The return of Kratos was also nominated in eight categories, and also took home the award for Best Action/Adventure Game.

Capcom’s wildly successful RPG Monster Hunter World took home the award for Best RPG, and was also nominated for Game of the Year and Best Multiplayer Game. Speaking of which, Epic’s Fortnite snagged the latter award, as well as Best Ongoing Game.

DEAD BY DAYLIGHT: DARKNESS AMONG US Unleashes First Human Killer on December 11th

Behaviour used tonight’s Game Awards to announce that Chapter 10 of their hit survival horror Dead by Daylight: Darkness Among Us will launch on December 11th. The game will include a new map and, for the first time in the game’s history, the killer will be a human, making him (or her?) even more difficult to differentiate from survivors.

They also used the occasion to announce that dedicated servers will be up and running by Summer 2019, meaning there will be plenty of room to join the 10+ million players who have already explored Dead by Daylight’s darkest corners.

“This has been the number one request from the community and we are excited to finally be able to make this announcement! We are also happy to announce that our team of programmers has already done a first successful internal test back in November. We still have a long way to go before fully migrating to dedicated servers and will keep you posted on our milestones as we progress.” said Mathieu Côté, Dead by Daylight’s Game Director.

You wanted it, you needed it. You got it. Announced at The Game Awards, Bethesda have released a new trailer for RAGE 2, as well as the release date.

The trailer shows off a much more colourful world than the original game, as well as keeping that over-the-top violence and tongue-in-cheek humor.

[The Game Awards 2018] ‘Stranger Things 3: The Game’ Announced

Announced at The Game Awards tonight by series creators Matt and Ross Dufferis is Stranger Things 3: The Game from developer XPBonus. Naturally, the game is based on the upcoming third season of the Netflix show. In keeping with the show’s 80s vibe, the game itself is a throwback to 3/4 topdown strategy games of old with pixel graphics. Only this time, it’s a co-op beat ’em up.

No word yet on the release date for the game, but it is coming to “all platforms”. And given that it ties into the release of season 3, you can probably draw your conclusions from that.

MK11 releases on April 23rd, 2019 and has a full reveal event on January 17, 2019.

[The Game Awards 2018] ‘Far Cry: New Dawn’ Announced For February Release

Expect a New ‘RAGE 2’ Trailer at The Game Awards 2018

Looks as though we’ll be getting a trailer for Bethesda’s RAGE 2 at this year’s Game Awards.

The official Twitter account for Bethesda’s shooter tweeted out the announcement, along with how the game should in fact be up for some awards, including “Best Post-Post-Apocalyptic Western”. Obviously that category doesn’t exist, and the devs are seemingly taking a shot at Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 (and ironically even their own Fallout franchise).

But with Fallout 76 having its continued issues, RAGE 2 will have a bit more riding on its shoulders to give Bethesda a rebound when the game is released in June 2019.

‘Alien: Blackout’ to Appear at The Game Awards This Year?

With news that gamers will potentially be returning to the Alien universe in Alien: Blackout, it seems we might see the game sooner rather than later.

Geoff Keighley, Producer of The Game Awards (and Hideo Kojima’s BFF), posted a teaser image ahead of this year’s event. The phrase “Worlds with Change” are repeated over and over with in a retro-styled computer screen look and font, and a giant “W” in the upper left corner. Longtime fans of the Alien series will note the similarities to the Weyland-Yutani Corporation’s own logo, and the image itself reminds you of something you’d have seen on the consoles on, say, the Nostromo.

Furthermore, Twitter accounts for @AlienBlackout and @Alien_Blackout have been discovered, with both being registered back in September.

Throwing a wrench into all of this speculation is Kojima himself, who visited 20th Century Fox, and later posted pictures from his visit on Twitter. That post was subsequently replied to by The Game Awards Twitter account with “World will change!”.

To add even more intrigue, Califoria-based Cold Iron Studios has been tapped to develop the game. And, according to LinkedIn pages of Cold Iron Studios’ employees, the company is not only developing the game for current gen consoles and PC, but next-gen as well.

December 6th will be interesting.
