Latest Red Dead 2 Gameplay Demo Details Its Scale.

Rockstar Games released the second, and what might be the last, gameplay video of their forthcoming title Red Dead Redemption 2 yesterday and gaming fans were not left disappointed.

The four minute video revealed more details about the various activities a player can do, raning from large scale bank and train robberries to playing poker and fishing.

It’s the sheer scale of pursuits and undertakings which looks to set Red Dead 2 aside from the rest, making it one of the most ambitious open world games from Rockstar yet.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is released October 26th.

GTA:V Fan Film Starring Steven Ogg aka Trevor.

 

Ever since the release of Rockstar’s sandbox, open-world game Grand Theft Auto V we’ve kept a close eye on the rise of actor Steven Ogg.

Ogg, who provided the voice and was motion captured for the game’s deranged and depraved protagonist Trevor, has since popped up filling out roles in Better Call Saul, The Walking Dead and more recently Westworld and his latest appearance in a viral fan film for GTA:V is garnering a load of attention.

Ogg once again reprises his gaming role of Trevor but this time in the flesh as he guides a player around the virtual reality version of the hit game.

 

 

Trailer For Watch Dogs 2 Is Mind Blowing.

Here’s the first official video for Ubisoft’s game Watch Dogs 2, an open world sequel to Watch Dogs released in 2014.

As you can see from the trailer the graphics look utterly amazing and the attention to detail is clear for all to see, but we’ll have to wait until November to find out just how much of the demonstrated footage will alter from actual gameplay.

The plot of Watch Dogs 2 rattles along like so:

Following Chicago, San Francisco becomes the next city to install the ctOS surveillance system, (the Central Operating System), which connects everyone with everything. The game features a new protagonist named Marcus Holloway, who is a young, intelligent hacker wrongly framed for a crime he did not commit when he was still a child by the upgraded ctOS system, ctOS 2.0, which connects his personal information to the crime. Realizing the system brings harm to the innocent citizens of San Francisco, he decides to work with the hacking group DedSec to take down the city’s ctOS 2.0, and Blume, the creator of the ctOS system

Watch Dogs 2 is slated for general release on on November 15th

The New Call Of Duty Will Be Set In Space.

Here’s the first official trailer for this year’s forthcoming Call Of Duty game and this time developers have embraced the game’s previous futuristic settings and are going one further, by launching players into space.

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be a first person shooter but with added aerial combat for gamers to engage with, (as evidenced by the trailer above), and will feature zero gravity environments throughout.

Judging from the trailer COD: Infinite Warfare looks set to boldly go where no other COD has gone before…sorry.
