Watch this pair of gameplay videos showing off the different ways Dishonored can be played.
In the videos below, a couple of the co-creative directors from Dishonored play through a mission of the stealthy first-person-action game featuring main character Corvo Atano. Both videos showcase the same mission, but one displays a stealthy approach to the game, while the second video shows a more violent and less stealthy version of the game. In the video commentary, the co-creative directors mention that there are many ways to progress through missions in the game. When entering a building called The Golden Cat, they make it a point to say that there are at least 8 different ways to infiltrate the building. Breaking into buildings isn't the only part of Dishonored that offers choices to the player. Encounters with enemies can be dealt with a knife, a knock out, or even a sneaky maneuver that keeps Corvo out of sight. The videos below also show some of the unique abilities that Corvo Atano has at his disposal.
Dishonored is expected to release October 9 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Mass Effect 3 producer revealed on Twitter that future DLC will be available.
Mike Gamble, producer for Mass Effect 3, recently tweeted, "Would now be a good time to talk about how we're doing more DLC in the future?" After hinting at more DLC for Mass Effect 3, Gamble responded to himself in another tweet saying, "That was a trick question. We'll save the future DLC for future chats. Don't worry though...there's much more."
While no specific details were revealed, Mass Effect 3 fans will find comfort in knowing that the Extended Cut DLC will not be the last of the additions to the game. Drop by the GameWinners Forum to tell us what DLC you want to see.
Even though Crytek told fans to not get their hopes up, a new Facebook petition for a new TimeSplitters game has emerged.
The Facebook group known as "100,000 Strong for TimeSplitters 4" is trying to convince Crytek to continue developing the TimeSplitters 4 game that was put on hold. The group hopes to get at least 100,000 "likes", but they don't want to stop their.
Here is a message from the group's Facebook page:
We are a group trying to convince Crytek to finish developing TimeSplitters 4! Even if it means doing a Kickstarter. (I'd fund that!).. Note: Even though the page is to gain 100k, we'll probably need much more. So dont give up at 100k!
Petitions can be a powerful influence that fans send towards a developer, so "like" the group if you want to see a new TimeSplitters game.
Microsoft is not participating in Gamescom or the Tokyo Game Show this year.
Larry Hryb (AKA Major Nelson on XBL) announced this morning that Microsoft is skipping Gamescom and the Tokyo Game Show this year in order to focus on other events. Here is Hryb's full statement:
As you saw at E3, we have a solid line-up of games launching this holiday, along with other entertainment experiences. We've changed our approach a little, though. This year, Xbox will be focusing on smaller, more localized promotions and experiences for press, partners, retailers and customers around the world. Which means that as you might have seen on some of the news sites today, we won't be taking part in gamescom or Tokyo Games Show this year.
Both are still important shows for the industry, and we do wish the organizers well.
Gamescom and TGS are two of the largest video game events each year. Hopefully Microsoft makes up for their absence in both events.
