Wideo Wednesday: A whole lot of trailers and excitement for the year ahead
This week's videos are full of promise. We're taking a look at exciting games coming out very soon to a platform near you. All are slated for release this year, with the soonest being The Walking Dead: 400 days in a few days. I'm also pumped for Battlefield 4, especially because I'm a fan of the series itself and the fact that OMGeek had its humble beginnings with hosting a BF3 server, as some of you might remember. We also have videos of Saints Row IV and The Bureau XCOM Declassified to whet your appettite.
Battlefield 4: Official Frostbite 3 Feature Video
First up we have a great looking video of the next generation Frostbite 3 engine powering Battlefield 4, straight from the developers at DICE. We get a combination of interviews from the devs interspersed with some amazingly high def footage of the latest Battlefield game. It looks absolutely stunning and I can't wait to get my hands on this.
More after the jump!
Saints Row IV - Gameplay Walkthrough
This is a fun bit of footage and gameplay of what appears to be the first 9 minutes of Saints Row IV, so fair warning to those of you who don't want to get spoiled. The storyline is pretty interesting and I'm really looking forward to getting to the bottom of exactly what the hell you get to do as President of the United States in this open world game.
The Bureau XCOM Declassified
This one's for Jed, our resident XCOM-ophile. A latest variant of the XCOM series, this latest trailer shows you a version of XCOM that takes you back to the early 1960's as an FBI special agent investigating extraterrestrials and UFOs. It is slated for release for PC and consoles on August 20, 2013.
The Walking Dead: 400 Days
Not quite Season 2 of Telltale's amazingly refreshing episodic game series, 400 Days is actually additional content for the first game. The trailer shows five separate stories which carry on from the decisions you made on the first season. It will also carry on with those decisions made into season two.
Have I missed any other interesting this last week? What did you think of my picks? Leave a comment and let me know, I’d love to hear from you!
