Battleface: New Battlefield Game Teaser-Trailed

At 9PM BTS/4PM ET, we’ll find out whether the new Battlefield game is Battlefield 5, Battlefield: More Uncomfortable Police Brutality Allusions, or something else entirely. I’m wondering if it could be something a little science-fictional, in order to go toe-to-toe with what COD is up to. Also, wild speculation funtimes: the seconds-long teaser trailer below suggests that its Big Face Man is looking up at something enormous and maybe a little scary. Maybe a mech? We’re overdue a return to 2142. Although the rest of the internet seems to think we’re going back to 1942 at long last.

Street Fighter V [official site] will run on Linux. There’s a sentence I never expected to write. Through the Steam community pages for the game, Capcom have confirmed that the latest in their glorious series of biff ‘em ups will support Steam OS.

Black Desert Closed Beta Launches, Has Character

Black Desert Online [official site] is an MMO about sprightly, perfect-skinned warriors doing battle with various grimy monsters. The latter part looks fine, but it’s the enormously detailed character creator that let’s you influence those sprightly fighters that makes it interesting to me. After being released in Korea last year, it’s now in closed beta in the west.

Assassin’s Creed Movie Costume, Setting & Character Name Revealed

Haha, that could be anyone in there. Though if you look really closely, you can just about make out a wince of shame in his eyes. But yes, this is our very first look at Michael ‘Big Boy’ Fassbender in the movie adaptation of Ubisoft’s jumpy-stabby Assassin’s Creed series.

Can You Solve The Riddle Of Batman’s System Specs?

Batman has an AMD card and is NOT HAPPY

The wailing and gnashing of teeth regarding Batman: Arkham Kerniggut’s PC port continues, as the publisher/developer’s first attempt to improve matters involves essentially telling everyone to turn all the settings right down for the time being, then make do with a game running in 720 at 30 frames per second. Oy gevalt.

So, hardware which many feel should be capable of running the game with most of its bells and whistles on is now deemed capable only of much lower settings, and ones which fall a long way short of the console version. This might be but a short-term measure, but it does feel a little like being told to eat your posh dinner off a paper plate.

First Look At Total War: Warhammer Is Totally Warhammer

you're at the wrong audition, Tobias

This is a good trailer. It’s a good trailer even though it doesn’t contain even a picosecond of in-game footage. This first ‘cinematic’ trailer for the Creative Assembly’s RTS adaptation of Games Workshop’s Warhammer Fantasy Battles is a good trailer because it’s got a big old dust-up between the Orcs (on boars!) and the Empire (on Griffons!) with a side-helping of Zombie Dragons, dwarfs fighting Arachnarok spiders and what looks an awful lot like mother-lovin’ Tzeentch. I might be wrong in that, but lord I hope not, because Tzeentch has always been my Chaos god, and sadly he’s gotten a raw deal in videogames to date

Anyway, you’ll want to watch this.
