Black Ops 3 DLC Includes Dragons Because Why Not?

Yo, you know what would really spice up Black Ops 3’s [official site] Zombies mode is some fire-breathing lizards because dammit, this is Call of Duty and they can do whatever they want. Apparently. Alright, I’ll admit that as far as DLC goes, having giant swathes of mechanized zombies facing off against dragons in the ruins of Stalingrad does sound pretty cool.

Here’s Six Minutes Of CoD: Infinite Warfare’s Campaign

Although Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site] is sadly not the procedurally-generated Escherian Nightmare we might’ve hoped for, Activision’s latest war-torn FPS is set in space and you’ll be pleased to know its single-player campaign looks to be shaping up nicely.  Don’t take my word for it, though – cast your eyes over six new minutes of gameplay highlights below.

Platinum’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Game Released

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan [official site], the latest from Bayonetta makers Platinum Games, is now out. I mention this not because I suffer from a crippling nostalgia which means I can only enjoy things from my youth, before I discovered anchovies are actually an acceptable pizza topping, but because Platinum can do great things even with licensed games. Metal Gear Rising, yeah? And Alec liked their Transformers game. So I’m certainly cooing cautiously at this. It’s got co-op too.

King’s Quest Episode 1 Is Now Free

A new King’s Quest [official site] was one of the first projects Activision announced after hauling the hide of Sierra Entertainment off their trophy wall and wrapping it around one of their colossal Actifingers, bringing back one of the shut-down publisher’s touchstones. With the series’ creators and makers long gone, the new episodic King’s Quest was made by P.B. Winterbottom devs The Odd Gentlemen. Three episodes are out so far, and now the first episode is free for everyone to try. Our John did not like it, but are you curious to see for yourself?

Or are you the type who likes slightly-silly, rapid paced, run-and-gunning against chums and zombies? Good news! Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer is free on Steam this weekend.

Call Of Duty 4 Remaster Only Sold With Infinite Warfare

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, the prettied-up version of Infinity Ward’s seminal shooter Call of Duty 4, will indeed only be available as a bundle-in with some of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s many premium editions. That’s what Activision say, at least. I am astonished. That can’t mean that, can they? They must have been so excited about Infinite Warfare’s spaceships and power armour that they forgot to add a little footnote with an asterisk saying “*exclusive for a limited time”. No? Sheesh. Weird!

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Announced

Activision today announced Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare [official site], the latest in their long-running mega-hit military FPS series, and I am sorely disappointed. Firstly, today is a holiday in the UK, so I’m not even supposed to be here. Secondly, Infinite Warfare is about futurewar with spaceships and everything, not the Escherian nightmare that we were assured it would be. This ‘real’ Infinite Warfare does sound exciting, but I can only assume we were deceived as someone’s idea of a ‘joke’.

Activision also announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, a revamp of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare – the game which defined the next nine years of CoD.
