Despite initial plans to release XCOM 2 later this year, Firaxis' has announced its upcoming sci-fi strategy game won't be out until February 5, 2016.
"We’ve set a high bar for the sequel and the entire team has been working hard to make sure we deliver a great follow-up to Enemy Unknown. We just need a little more time to make it the best possible game," the studio said.
"With XCOM 2, we want to have more depth, more replayability, and more investment in your soldiers and this extension will give us the time we need to deliver on our promise to you," Firaxis added. "We appreciate your patience and continued support as we move towards February."
From the flint-and-steel activation of a Nether Portal to a notable ubiquity of clucking chickens, Minecraft: Story Mode’s demo seemed deeply invested in conveying the familiar environmental experiences of Minecraft into its narrative. I’m curious how the open slate of Story Mode will ultimately interface with the mostly-mechanical Minecraft world, but from what I saw, Telltale is off to an encouraging start.
I was happy to see that Story Mode will be the first Telltale game to allow players to choose their player avatar. In a nod to Minecraft’s multiplayer character customization, Jesse is rendered in six different models, with three male iterations voiced by Patton Oswalt and the three females by actress Catherine Taber. All six designs seem carefully crafted from the familiar colors and textures of the Minecraft palette, with cleverly Minimal detailing granting each a distinct look.
IGN has an exclusive new TV spot for Disney XD's Guardians of the Galaxy animated series, this time featuring everyone's favorite tree-creature Groot! As you'll see in the video, it looks like Groot gets a translator to interpret all his various "I am Groots" -- albeit still in three-word sayings. Check it out:
Guardians of the Galaxy's voice cast includes Will Friedle (Boy Meets World) as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Trevor Devall (Johnny Test) as Rocket Raccoon, Vanessa Marshall (Star Wars Rebels) as Gamora, David Sobolov (Transformers: Prime) as Drax the Destroyer, Kevin Michael Richardson (The Cleveland Show) as Groot and James Arnold Taylor (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as Yondu and Cosmo.
Last month at SDCC, DC announced a follow-up to their weekly Batman Eternal comic. Batman and Robin Eternal will focus on Dick Grayson and the other members of the Batman family as they deal with a dark secret from Bruce Wayne's past coming to light.
Like the first Batman Eternal, the new weekly series will feature a large lineup of writers and artists, including Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV acting as "showrunners" for the book. Artist Tony Daniel will be responsible for establishing the look and feel of the series, as he's drawing the first issue, the first month's worth of covers and an 8-page preview story that will debut on "Batman Day" in September. DC has also confirmed that Daniel will return to draw future issues of the series.
This past June marked the start of DC You, where the publisher kicked off new stories in half of their comics line and launched two dozen new series to fill out the rest of it. It wasn’t so much a reboot like 2011’s attention-grabbing New 52, but more of a refresh that kept what was working and added some new ideas. However, there’s currently a rumor going around that DC Comics is experiencing financial woes -- partially from their big move from East to West coast, but a large chunk due to lackluster sales -- and in order to recover, they aim to abandon many of DC You’s experimental ideas for more classic stories. That would be a shame, because from where I sit DC is putting out their best comics in years.
Ever since Destiny first arrived onto consoles last September, it has steadily gained a following of loyal fans who immerse themselves in its universe. Their Fireteam is their family.
At IGN, we want to celebrate those who have sunk countless hours into the game; those who are seeking to become legend. Which begs the question - how legendary are you? We're giving Destiny players the opportunity to show off their Guardian, and in return the best three could walk away with the following prizes:
The main winner will receive a 3A toys Destiny Titan Figurine (figure may vary from one shown below), a Destiny: The Taken King Collector's Edition, a PS4 console sticker signed by members of the Bungie team, and a t-shirt from Insert Coin.
Previously on Avatar... IGN revisited one of the great animated series of all time, Avatar: The Last Airbender! Since we're missing some reviews in our backlog -- in this case, episode 209 through 311 (22 episodes total) -- we thought it'd be fun to fill that gap, while also looking back at what made the show so great. (Two turtle ducks with one stone!) We'll be reviewing episodes Tuesdays and Fridays, so feel free to follow along by watching the episodes with us via DVD, iTunes or Amazon Prime!
Lionsgate is working on a movie based on Gearbox's Borderlands, with producers Avi Arad and his son Ari.
According to Variety, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairs Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger said that "the ‘Borderlands’ games don’t pull any punches, and we’ll make the movie with the same in-your-face attitude that has made the series a blockbuster mega-franchise.”
Avi Arad was the founder of Marvel Studios and was involved as a producer on most Marvel-based films (including Blade, X-Men, Spider-Man, Daredevil and Fantastic Four) through the debut of Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk. After leaving Marvel, he still remained a producer on the Spider-Man series at Sony.
Marvel Comics has unveiled Guardians of Infinity, a new series featuring heroes from across three generations of Guardians of the Galaxy.
According to Comicbook.com, Guardians of Infinity will feature characters from Guardians 3000, characters from the modern Guardians like Groot and Rocket Raccoon, and a brand new team called the Guardians 1000. All of the characters will team up for the series' opening story arc. Dan Abnett is writing the series, with art from Carlo Barberi.
Each issue will feature an extra backup story. Issue #1's is by Jason Latour and Jim Cheung, and has Rocket Raccoon and The Thing teaming up on a planet where the culture is based on Earth-style professional wrestling.
Project Treasure has been renamed Lost Reavers.
There’s also a new gameplay trailer which gives us a look at the game in action.
Translated by Siliconera, the game’s official website has a few new nuggets of information. Players are tasked with raiding different parts of the world with the hopes of finding treasures known as Relics.
Each area has its own design, be it crumbling ruins or more modern structures. Inside each area, players will need to work together if they wish to stand any chance of survival. Certain stages house giant boss fights so if you go it alone, you’re doomed.
Ice-Pick Lodge has announced that the PlayStation 4 version of its horror game Knock Knock will be coming out on September 10.
The creepy Knock Knock is currently out on PC and iOS, and is coming to Sony's console next month.
Knock Knock's main character is called the Lodger, and the game takes place in a cabin in the woods, of course. Its central motif is the fear of the unknown.
In IGN's review of the PC version of Knock Knock, we said that it "is a gorgeous survival horror game with more style than sense."
TBS has announced that it has renewed Seth MacFarlane's animated show American Dad for an additional two seasons.
This means 44 new episodes will be added, 22 each for seasons 12 and 13. American Dad episodes reach an average of nearly 4 million viewers through TBS and its sister network Adult Swim.
"American Dad! has thrived since coming to TBS and Adult Swim," said Deborah Bradley, executive vice president of networks optimization and content commercialization for Turner Broadcasting. "We look forward to keeping the crazy-but-lovable Smith family around for a long time."
This announcement marks the second time in a year the show has been renewed. After a 10 year run on FOX, American Dad switched over to TBS, and was almost immediately renewed less than a month after its TBS air date.
A new gameplay trailer has been released for Boss Key Productions’ forthcoming physics-based-shooter LawBreakers.
This is our first time seeing the game in action, and gives a quick look at one of the maps, Grandview, and also introduces us to four playable characters, Kitsune, Maverick, Breacher, and Cronos.
Check out the trailer above.
Kitsune is a fast-paced melee fighter who excels at close-quarter combat. She’s not much cop when charging enemies head-on, but take them by surprise and they’re toast: “
what she lacks in durability she more than makes up for in damage output and mobility,” reads the press release.
Maverick makes use of her jets to get out of (or into depending on your playstyle) sticky situations. Her ability, Starfall, allows her to jet into the sky then plummet back down to earth at high velocity, wrecking everything in sight.
Destiny: The Taken King creative director Luke Smith has revealed some upcoming changes to the way Destiny Nightfalls work.
The big updates include a Level 40 level requirement, a 30 second time-out penalty for death, and your fireteam wiping no longer returns you to orbit.
Smith wrote about these changes on Bungie's website. "The death penalty of being kicked to orbit often leads to players feeling forced to play too safe, rather than running through the world as a monster killing machine."
Smith added "another thing we didn't like about the Year 1 Nightfall was how players could feel forced to play Nightfall as early as possible in the week to maximize the benefit from the Nightfall buff. So, we've shelved that buff until we can reform it into something closer to its original intent - a mark of prestige for having achieved something challenging. We've adjusted sources of XP and Reputation up to account for its absence."
Greetings Podpeople! It's Friday, which can only mean one thing - the IGN UK Podcast crew return to dribble themselves lovingly into your lugholes. Don't fight it - it's meant to be like this.
This week sees the unholy trinity that is Gav, Rory and Luke discussing how when games try to be like movies they seem to get it right, while movies that try and adapt games continue to get it so, so wrong.
There's also an analysis of this week's news, including Hideo Kojima's last ever trailer, Xbox One's backwards compatibility, and the almighty McWhopper. In the history of missed opportunities, this will forever go down as a big one.
