*UPDATE – Check out the teaser trailer here.
As per the rumor earlier, Bungie confirmed at Microsoft’s press conference that Halo: Reach was their big announcement for E3 2009. The teaser trailer for the game showed the planet being glassed while all hell broke loose on the combat comms. It releases in 2010 and seems to deal with the Spartan team on planet.
When you purchase Halo: ODST, you will be able to participate in the Halo: Reach multiplayer beta test at a later date.
EA Sports has released a new video showing off the newest feature to the Madden series: co-op play! Due out August 14th in North America, Madden NFL 10’s co-op mode is not the only new thing to the series as EA teases us an even BIGGER one will be announced during the Microsoft press conference on June 1st.
High Voltage Software has released a new trailer for their upcoming shooter, The Conduit. A Nintendo Wii exclusive, The Conduit features a proprietary game engine designed with the soul purpose of giving the game visuals comparable to those seen on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 consoles. The Conduit is due out June 23rd in North America.
The above image was pulled from Kombo and is apparently hinting at the June 18th issue of PSW magazine. The image displays the silhouette of what we are assuming to be the protagonist of Hideo Kojima’s upcoming mystery title.
We have been assuming his mystery title to be the next Metal Gear Solid game, but the figure above does not resemble anything based in our current reality. The character has a knife of some kind attached to his/her waist as well as what appear to be medieval-style spaulders.
Legendary Pictures has produces a ton of big Hollywood flicks such as Superman Returns, 300, and more. Now, they are announcing that they have created Venture, an in-house game developer to create games for multiple platforms (including mobile and the Internet) based on their films. Kathy Vrabeck, a former EA executive, has been charged with running the new division.
From the Article:
‘Venture, to be based at Legendary’s offices on the Warner Bros. lot, will develop content based on its pics, as well as original programming that will be distribbed across multiple platforms, including the Internet, mobile phones and videogames.’
The teaser for Kojima’s next project has been updated with a countdown timer. In addition to the 80 hours left on the clock, a ‘5’ (or perhaps ‘S’) appears briefly after each lightning flash. What does this mean? Metal Gear Solid 5? Maybe?
Time will tell, so stay-tuned.
SouthPeak has released a new trailer for their Nintendo DS Roogoo title, ‘Roogoo Attack!‘. Roogoo Attack! features 100 levels of play with both single and multiplayer capabilities.
