This is certainly looking freakin’ awesome so far.
OGPlanet just released a teaser for Tactical Intervention, their Counter-Strike-esque first person shooter. (One of the founders of OGPlanet is actually the creator of Counter-Strike.)
They’re running a closed beta starting next month. You can apply to play right here.
Nadeo, the brilliant company behind the TrackMania franchise, just announced that they’re working with Ubisoft on a first person shooter called – you guessed it – ShootMania.
No real information is available about the project yet but the base concept is the same one that made TrackMania so popular: give the end user a suite of content creation tools that are easy to use but powerful enough to have fun with and cut them loose. I can’t wait, myself.
I haven’t followed the development on this one hardly at all but it certainly looks cool.
An amazing looking CG trailer for Far Cry 3 leaked today. Here it is, in all its glory.
Also, there’s a rumor kicking around that this will be released on September 6th, 2012.
The EA mobile division unexpectedly and inexplicably released a god-awful iOS bastardization of Battlefield 3 this morning. It’s apparently tied to some sort of advertising partnership with the producers of the upcoming war movie Act of Valor.
The game is called Battlefield 3: Aftershock and – no surprise, here – it’s terrible. Even free, it isn’t worth downloading.
Adhesive Games, the indie team behind the awesome looking mech shooter Hawken, just announced that the game will be a free to play title when it launches and they’ve opened sign-ups for the closed beta, which starts 12/12/12.
Be sure to get your name on the list!
Although it’s been delayed, the trailers for Aliens: Colonial Marines are still rolling out.
I’m stoked about the sound in this game.
The saga of video game publishing titan THQ has taken several twists and turns this week. A day after reducing their workforce by 240 positions, the company is making headlines again for several reasons. Here’s a quick rundown of what we know right now.
- Metro: Last Light, sequel to Metro 2033, has been delayed to 2013.
- There are more than 1.4 million unsold uDraw tablets collecting dust in a warehouse right now. THQ lost $100 million on that investment decision.
- The Warhammer 40,000 MMO, Dark Millennium Online, is not canceled!
- inSane, the horror game that Volition was working on with director Guillermo Del Toro, and Homefront 2, which was in development at Crytek UK, are both still happening.
- THQ has two unannounced “core” titles planned for release in fiscal year 2014 and four planned for release in fiscal year 2014.
Not bad considering that the company is otherwise falling apart at the seams.
Alright, Ubisoft. You’ve got my attention.
