The first official trailer for Watch Dogs: Legion was released during Ubisoft’s E3 presentation today.
In this title, London is being oppressed by an all-seeing surveillance state. It is an area where private militaries control the streets and a powerful crime syndicate preys on the vulnerable. Players will not take this sitting down though, and will recruit a resistance to fight back.
The ability to weaponize London’s tech infrastructure, customize recruits, and utilize a new melee system are all at the player’s disposal.

Originally an April Fools’ Day joke, Funcom announced today that Conan Chop Chop will make its way to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on September 3.
In this title, players are tasked with thwarting the plans of the evil wizard Thoth-Amon, who sets out to resurrect the “even eviler wizard” Xaltotun. The game will support couch co-op.

Conan Chop Chop – Announcement Trailer
According to Funcom CEO Rui Casais:
“Keeping this a secret has been a hardship. The feedback we got from fans when we released the April Fools’ Day trailer was amazing and remarkably unanimous, and so I have been itching to give them the good news ever since. But don’t be fooled by the game’s humoristic and quirky looks. There is a lot of hard work being put into this, and the game should thrill roguelike fans and hack and slash fans alike”
It’s possible that the name of Blair Witch does not evoke anything for the youngest of you but it was one of the horror movies that became cult in the late ’90s. Released in 1999, The Blair Witch Project follows the story of three film students who left to investigate the legend of Blair’s witch in Burkittsville, Maryland. According to the locals, the woods are haunted, and that pushes the three friends to camp there in an attempt to know more. But the walk in the forest quickly turns to disaster. Blair Witch became famous largely thanks to his achievement, the film is entirely filmed by the characters themselves with a shoulder camera in a documentary way. Having been made with a small budget, it is not the special effects that create anxiety in the film, but the fact of not knowing what is happening, reflecting the spectator’s own fears.
Blair Witch enjoyed a sequel and a remake in 2016, and three video-game adaptations in the past. A new game on the license has just been announced at E3 during the Xbox conference. Developed by Bloober Team, Blair Witch presents itself as a psychological horror game, in the same style as Layers of Fear, also developed by the studio. The trailer, broadcasted at the conference, sets the scene: you play as Ellis, a former police officer looking for a missing boy in the woods near Burkittsville. The game takes place in 1996, two years after the events of the film. The trailer shows finally quite little about the gameplay of the game.
The only things that we know about the game so far are that it will be played on the first-person view and that we will obviously be accompanied by a dog, who we imagine will also have a role to play. We can see the main character panting as he runs through the woods with a flashlight, and rather disturbing forms appear and disappear. According to the game’s official website, Ellis would have a dark past and would face his own fears. We also noted the presence of a camera that will undoubtedly be a gameplay element. Finally, fans of the film will certainly have noticed the reference to the latter, in the scene that recalls the end of the film where we see a wall filled with bloody handprints, and a person standing facing the wall in a corner. Is it possible that Ellis crosses the path of the three missing students in this new Blair Witch game? We will have to wait to know it, but not very long since Blair Witch will be released on August 30, 2019, on Xbox One, and PC.
See you this summer for a walk in the woods with Blair Witch.

CD Projekt RED has left us with a weird feeling after Microsoft’s conference. The event was held yesterday, and as expected we were able to see some new footage of one of the most anticipated games right now, Cyberpunk 2077. The cinematic trailer looks great; everyone was quite excited about the game but imagine what a huge surprise was when Keanu Reeves appeared as a character at the end.
It seems that Reeves likes to appear at videogames. We recently could see him as John Wick during a seasonal event in Fortnite, but absolutely nobody would have guessed that he would be a character in Cyberpunk 2077. There is a bit of speculation going on about who is his character in the game, some people say he will be no other than Johnny Silverhand, a legendary rocker in Cyberpunk lore, but he is also said to be called “Mr. Fusion.” His role is yet to be confirmed, but if we take the video into account, it would seem that he will be important in the story of our protagonist, V.
As you probably know if you have been following the game, Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person open-world adventure that takes place in Night City, California, a megalopolis obsessed with power and money. This sci-fi story will let us play as a mercenary called V, who we can fully customize according to our liking. As the game progress, we can assign experience points to improve different skill trees and grant him all kind of abilities.
This may be as much as you will be watching of Cyberpunk 2077, at least for a while unless you are at the E3 because as it was announced not too long ago, the demo of the game won´t be streamed or recorded. The developers have explained that there are just marketing reasons behind that; they want to create hype for their game.
The other big reveal about Cyberpunk 2077 in the event was the official launch date. CD Project RED confirmed that we will be able to play it from April 16th, next year. The game will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Electronic Arts gaming conference was scheduled for last Saturday, and it didn’t disappoint. The game that opened the event could be no other than Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and we got to watch fourteen minutes of amazing gameplay footage that showed the protagonist of the game Cal Kestis fighting against several creatures and imperial soldiers as he progresses through an industrial area in the Wookie homeworld of Kashyyyk. Cal is a young padawan that has managed to escape alive from the execution of Order 66 that implies the extermination of all Jedis.
As you can see in the trailer, Cal is accompanied by his trusty droid, and despite he is not a fully trained Jedi yet, he can make use of several Force abilities to push and pull enemies and even “slow time.” He also wields a lightsaber that can be used both offensively and defensively to deflect blaster shots. Since he will start as an untrained padawan, we can assume that the footage in the video shows an advanced part of the storyline in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It definitely represents quite well the capabilities of a Jedi and delivers a feeling of being epic that many players have been missing quite a lot in other games of the Star Wars franchise.
Cal Kestis and his droid
According to Respawn, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is exactly what the video shows, a great story with platform and puzzle action that puts a heavy emphasis on melee combat.
“Players will use their Jedi training to create different melee combinations with an innovative lightsaber combat system and Force abilities. Players will also use traversal and other platforming abilities to strategically overcome opponents and solve puzzles in their path across this galaxy-spanning adventure.”
We also learned a few interesting things about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order during the conference. The game is to be played solo, exclusively, and that definitely helps to focus on the story. We will follow the growth of Cal Kestis as he becomes a full-fledged Jedi through the game. It’s not an open-world game, but as stated above, it features limited exploration and puzzles. Cal ship will serve as a hub as you travel to different planets and you will be able to save your game in certain checkpoints where you can also refill the healing capabilities of your droid.
Another thing that we discovered this weekend is the box art of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, that was published on Respawn Entertainment Twitter account.
Developers have decided to deliver an epic story with what looks like very solid gameplay, and we should be grateful for it, as it will shed some light to one of the darkest periods in the Star Wars storyline. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will launch on November 15, 2019, on PC. PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
