CASTLEVANIA: LORDS OF SHADOW 2 THE VOID SWORD REVEALED

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc has revealed the first in a new series of videos, highlighting the innovative new weaponry and abilities available in the upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.

With the conclusion to the ‘Lords of Shadow’ series releasing on February 25th, the publisher has issued the first video detailing key armaments within the new game. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 introduces an improved combat system, with Dracula earning a series of powerful weapons and abilities as he progresses through the game.

Central to this new format is the Void Sword, a mystical weapon with incredible restorative properties. The Void Sword is the focus of this first trailer, and the weapon itself is found early on in the game. Once obtained, the Void Sword allows Dracula to add his enemies’ health to his own with every strike. It is a hugely effective weapon, and becomes a focal point of the vampire’s arsenal.

The new 50-second trailer shows the sword in full flow, against multiple foes and the game’s larger adversaries. Stay tuned for more gameplay updates in the lead up to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2’s release.

Critically-Acclaimed ‘The Wolf Among Us’ Continues in Episode Two

Leading developer and publisher of digital entertainment, Telltale Games, in cooperation with DC Entertainment, has launched the second episode of the five episode game series, The Wolf Among Us. Based on Bill Willingham’s award-winning comic book series ‘FABLES’ and licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Telltale Games brings the second episode, ‘Smoke & Mirrors,’ to Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®Network, and on PC and Mac from the Telltale Online Store and other digital distribution outlets.  The episode also makes its debut this week on the iOS App Store as an in-app purchase within the original The Wolf Among Us release.

A consistent New York Times bestseller, ‘FABLES’ is one of DC Entertainment’s longest-running series published under its Vertigo imprint since 2002.  With over a dozen Eisner Awards, including Best Writer, Best New Series, and numerous wins for Best Serialized Story, the FABLES universe has become one of the richest mythologies in the world of comics, imagining that characters like Snow White, The Big Bad Wolf and Pinocchio from the world’s most beloved storybooks are real – Real, and living among us, with all of their powers intact.

“We last left fans of ‘FABLES’ and ‘The Wolf Among Us’ on one of the most talked about cliffhangers in Telltale’s history, and this week, we’re taking players deeper into one of the darkest rabbit holes yet to be explored within the incredible universe that Bill Willingham has created,” said Dan Connors, CEO and Co-Founder of Telltale Games. “Consequences of decisions made earlier truly begin to manifest in your relationships with the citizens of Fabletown, as choosing when Bigby will either play nice or lose his cool becomes harder and harder as the stakes grow even higher.”

Set prior to the events seen in the first issue of the FABLES comic book series, The Wolf Among Us puts players in the role of Bigby Wolf, a man once more infamously known as The Big Bad Wolf.  Now the sheriff of a hidden community in New York City, exiled from the land of fairy tales, Bigby is tasked by the bureaucrat Snow White to keep order within a society of mythical creatures and characters trying to remain undetected in the world of the mundane.  From a chain-smoking member of ‘The Three Little Pigs,’ to a slippery Mr. Toad itching for his next wild ride, The Wolf Among Us examines the lives of beings straight from the pages of myth and lore, now trying to survive on the meanest and most run-down streets of New York.

The Wolf Among Us second episode, ‘Smoke & Mirrors,’ is now available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlayStation®Network for $4.99 USD individually, or as part of a season pass option including access to episodes as they are released.  On PC/Mac, the episode is available as part of a season pass, and also available on the iOS App Store as part of a season multi-pack, or for $4.99 USD as an in-app purchase within The Wolf Among Us application.

Crimes & Punishments : This is Sherlock Holmes – News & Trailer

The character of Sherlock Holmes created by Arthur Conan Doyle has been portrayed in many different ways in the past. Crimes & Punishments brings this iconic and peculiar figure to life, in a stunning and faithful representation: his eccentric personality, his manners and, above all, the many remarkable gifts for which he is famous.

This video follows Sherlock in a murder case involving a sailor, a whale harpoon and various suspects. Please note that while this video may hint at one of the possible conclusions, it is but one of many potential outcomes. Depending on how YOUR investigation progresses, you will be able to accuse different guilty parties from among your list of suspects… and determine their fate: will you absolve them of their crime, or will you impartially enforce justice?

In this new Crimes & Punishments video, we can admire the great work Frogwares studios has carried out on Sherlock Holmes and the cast of characters who feature in the six thrilling investigations in the game. Motion captured animations, meticulously detailed faces, lip-sync, the interplay between actor and cinematic cameras bring all the dialog, interrogation and interaction to life.

Besides his eccentricity, Sherlock showcases in this video his extraordinary detective talents which you will employ and exploit to solve each case: his ability to connect seemingly unrelated clues to deduce facts, his talent for guessing a person’s life simply by looking at them, his skill to imagine and reconstruct a past event by observing the key details of a crime scene…. Last but not least, we discover the new in-game “deduction board”, which is none other than the very brain of Sherlock Holmes! Here, you will connect all the clues and information you have gathered and piece them together to establish facts, determine suspects and eventually find out who the guilty parties might be.

Crimes & Punishments marks the most important stage in the Sherlock Holmes series. The decision by Frogwares studios to switch from the in-house engine to the Epic Unreal Engine 3 enables a much richer, more immersive and detailed rendering of both the environments and characters.[carousel arrows=”display”]

But the change of game engine has not only improved the graphics; new investigation techniques have been developed and the game can now offer 14 game mechanics. From the opening of each of the six investigations up to the arrest of the culprits and the moral dilemmas faced by the players, the new game mechanics convey the feeling of BEING Sherlock Holmes. Players will therefore be able to exploit the incredible gifts and talents for which he is renowned, such as his ability to guess the details of an individual’s life simply by observing them, or to imagine and reconstruct a past event by studying the key features of a crime scene.

Crimes & Punishments will be released on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3, Xbox 360® and PC in Q2 2014.
