Breathtaking Reveal Trailer – Psychological Thriller – Aftermath

Italian developer One O One Games and META Publishing have today revealed their upcoming psychological thriller, Aftermath, for PC, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5, via an exclusive 2 minute teaser trailer.

Aftermath strives to throw players into a narrative driven world beyond the unimaginable. Designed to make you wonder: what would humanity do when faced with a situation like this?

The game follows Charlie Gray, a former European astronaut, as she struggles through the remnants of society, in search for her daughter. Driven by its gut wrenching narrative, Aftermath delves deeply into philosophy and psychology, drawing from the One O One team’s previous experience from games like “The Suicide of Rachel Foster”.

Players will find themselves in new territory when it comes to systems like crafting and combat, things that they will need to get familiar with fast if they are to survive against the threat occupying the world – and hunting them down. This otherworldly threat is born from the mind of Italian visual arts master, Alessandro Bavari, the creator behind works like Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant and Suspiria. Players will be forced to think outside of the box when it comes to survival.

With an original soundtrack featuring music from the likes of UNKLE and Planet Funk, every facet of the game’s creation aims to draw players into the hellish, desolate world of Aftermath.

“For us at One O One, this is a major goal. To have the chance to develop such an ambitious, innovative title in Italy and we feel lucky to have META Publishing as a partner. META believed in our game, which aims to tell a mature story through survival mechanics, one that’s far away from the standard wilderness settings that these games feature normally. We are excited to let people get in touch with the uncanny world we’re creating and the characters who inhabit it!” says David Gallo, CEO at One O One Games.

“We’re extremely excited to be sharing this news with the world today,” says META Publishing CEO Ilya Salamatov. “The team at One O One have created an incredibly layered character in Charlie, the protagonist of the game. She was at the top of the world before the event and even though the odds are stacked against her, she still finds the strength to overcome everything and focus on finding her daughter. The story and experience in Aftermath is truly something unique that we hope people will be talking about for years to come. The combination of visual style, story, soundtrack and gameplay creates a completely unique game that will appeal to a vast amount of gamers across the globe”.

“This is only the beginning of us exploring Aftermath,” teases META Publishing Chief Marketing Officer, Chris Collins. “Over the coming months until launch, we’ll be highlighting a huge amount of topics and content, to help players understand more of what’s in store. The trailer released today is layered in moments that reflect elements of the game that we’ve not even started to talk about. You won’t catch them all the first time around. Keep an eye out for more stories, videos, blog posts and articles in 2022, where we’ll explore “the philosophy of the Aftermath” and many of the topics the game covers. We can’t wait to hear what you think!”

To keep an eye on progress, wishlist the game on Steam and PlayStation now! You can follow Aftermath and META Publishing on Social media, where we’ll be revealing more about the game throughout 2022.

Time-Bending Mech Combat Coming To PS5, Xbox Series X|S & PC

110 Industries is excited to announce that its upcoming mech combat title, Vengeance Is Mine, is in development for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.

Vengeance Is Mine’s, brutal melee mech combat is augmented with a time-manipulation mechanic that adds a fascinating twist to encounters. Thanks to the capabilities of the HYDRA mech suit, the player will have the ability to speed up time and blink towards unsuspecting enemies, or rewind time to readjust combos or evade death. HYDRA also comes packing an energy-based projectile weapon that allows you to take on foes at distance.

Players will step into the shoes of Gabriel Jaeger, brutally executed by three time travellers heading back to 1664 to obtain an old piece of technology that will allow them to operate the Deacon – a derelict military installation buried under the streets of New Amsterdam. Charles Jaeger, now in full control of the Deacon, rallies his flock to meet their spiritual leader Robert Wright beyond the horizon of space and time. His only problem is Gabriel. Barely making it out alive, Gabriel is in control of the prototype HYDRA mech suit and ready to wreak his revenge.

“We’re thrilled to introduce people to the time-manipulation mech combat we’re bringing to the table with Vengeance Is Mine,” said Sergei Kolobashkin, Founder and Creative Director at 110 Industries. “As we continue to work on bringing the game to PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC, we will have plenty more exciting information to share, so please keep your eyes open!”

Bloober Team Teases New Unreal Engine 5 Project in Layers of Fear Universe

Bloober Team is thrilled to share a sneak peek at their return to the world of Layers of Fear. Check out this Unreal Engine 5 teaser trailer for clues on what this new, yet-to-be-titled project could be:

The first Layers of Fear, released in 2016, made waves in the gaming industry with its unique take on the first-person psychological horror experience told from the point of view of a painter obsessively trying to finish his Magnum Opus—no matter the cost. This award-winning title successfully created a new direction for both the Bloober Team studio and the psychological horror genre that increased its popularity in the mainstream gaming community. Layers of Fear was later expanded with a story DLC titled Inheritance.

In 2019, Bloober Team released an indirect sequel, Layers of Fear 2, telling the story of a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of a despotic director (voiced by horror legend Tony Todd) to star in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.

Layers of Fear was a breakthrough project for usit paved the path for Bloober Team and began our rapid growth, allowing us to explore more stories we’ve wanted to tell,” said Piotr Babiebo, Bloober Team CEO. “I’m really glad we’re coming back to this world, wiser and more experienced. For me, it’s important that we make this announcement during the Tokyo Games Show, as for many of us Japan is the cradle of psychological horror games. As a studio, we also have two other projects in the works, one in production and one in pre-production.

In addition to the new Layers of Fear project, Bloober Team is also working on two AAA projects that have yet to be announced. Follow Bloober Team on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for more details on the projects they’re working on.

Developer Piranha Games announced today, that a new MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries expansion, Legend of the Kestrel Lancers and major updates for the base game will release Sept. 23, 2021 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One X, Xbox One, PS4™ system, PlayStation®5, Steam, GOG.com, and Epic Games Store. Both the expansion and update are packed with first-in-series features focused on bringing a fresh experience to longtime fans and provide an accessible entry point for new players.

The Legend of the Kestrel Lancers expansion departs from the sandbox structure seen in past campaigns and offers a more story-focused experience set during the “Fourth Succession War,” one of the most famous conflicts in BattleTech lore featuring 14 missions and seven “Battle Quests” featuring large-scale conflicts set on custom battle grounds. Improved urban warfare also awaits with Mega Cities that are significantly larger than any Urban Centers previously seen in the MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries. In addition, players can look forward to more All-Out War scenarios, designed to make your hulking squad of building-sized ‘Mechs feel like part of a larger force in the field. All this comes with over 20 new Mech variants, new Jungle and Tourmaline Desert biomes, and a wide array of procedurally generated missions to take Mech warfare to the next level.

Players can also look forward to a free update to the base game, MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries adding significant first-in-series features, including the introduction of Melee Combat! For the first time in MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, players will be able to get up-close and personal with rival Mechs with the ability to swing and punch. In addition, for the first time, players will be able to switch between any of the AI-controlled Lance ‘Mechs on a mission. This seemingly small update introduces huge impacts on gameplay, essentially allowing the player to bounce between direct control of each Mech in their squad with the push of a button.

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries finds players in the battlefields of the future, dominated by BattleMechs, hulking machines of war capable of leveling entire cities. As the inheritor of a once-glorious Mercenary company, the quest for glory and revenge will stretch light years, chasing the threads of interstellar intrigue on the journey to become an elite MechWarrior and mercenary commander.

  • Urban Warfare: Explore and destroy Mega Cities significantly larger than any Urban Centers previously in the MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries
  • All-Out War: These grand-scale scenarios are designed to make the player feel like their Mercenary company is part of a larger force at play on the field of combat
  • New Biomes: The operatic scope of the campaign’s original story calls for equally impressive environments. Players can look forward to exploring new Mega City, Jungle, and Tourmaline Desert biomes on their journey across the galaxy

Base Game Update key features:

  • Melee Combat: For the first-time, players will be able to swing and punch with close quarters mech-on-mech combat

Oddworld: Soulstorm to launch on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles

Today, Microids and Oddworld Inhabitants are pleased to confirm that the explosive action-adventure platformer Oddworld: Soulstorm is coming to Xbox One consoles and Xbox Series X|S. Retail editions will also be available for Xbox versions.

Game Features:

  • Explosive Action-Adventure Platformer: Evolving the platforming genre by adding RPG-lite elements with player agency to play as you like, whether aggressively or passively. Pickpocket your enemies, loot lockers, sift through trash cans, and find hidden areas to acquire resources. Exchange resources at vending machines to get products that give you more agency in how you chose to conquer the game’s many challenges. Acquire recipes to craft tools and weapons to use against opposing forces or solve problems. Arm your followers and watch the revolution begin.
  • Epicness: This isn’t a traditional 2D side scrolling platformer. Soulstorm is a 2.9D action-adventure platformer with 15 hours of gameplay, and dozens more for achievement hunters and perfectionists. Epic environments with massive scale to explore by going into the world, rather than being limited to the traditional side scrolling platformer sense.
  • Start a Revolution: A dark storyline with a twisted sense of humor that shines a light on the ironies that exist in the human condition. As a slave to big business, a cog in the corporate machine being grinded to death, Abe tries to save them all and along the way he goes from a nobody to potentially starting a global revolution.
  • Completionists: Can you save every single Mudokon in the game (there are more than 1,000)? Can you achieve the best ending and unlock the final two playable levels? Can you scavenge every trash can and locker, kill or safely apprehend every antagonist, find every hidden area, collect every jelly? 3+m players have had the opportunity to do it…will you be the first to do it on Xbox?
  • Multiple Endings: Soulstorm has 15 levels, with two additional unlockable levels at the end of the game. There are 4 types of endings in the game, each depending on your Quarma. At the end of each individual level, you receive a Quarma score, which is based on the number of Mudokons you save. If you succeed in saving enough Mudokons throughout all the levels, you’ll get one of the good endings. But beware: if your Quarma score isn’t high enough, you’ll get a more… dire fate!

An improved gameplay experience

Since Soulstorm first launched on April 6, Oddworld Inhabitants have been listening to players’ feedback and suggestions and released seven updates to enhance the game’s experience. They are thrilled to say Oddworld: Soulstorm’s gameplay has been refined on all platforms through fixes, removal of bugs, level design and balance adjustments, as well as quality of life improvements. No game is bug free, but the version that players can download right now for PS5, PS4, and Epic Games Store is one the studio is proud of and believes they will enjoy. Same goes for the PS5 and PS4 physical versions that can be found at retailers. The Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One versions will have the same fixes already implemented.

About Oddworld: Soulstorm
