After a rocky twelve months or so, during which Homefront: The Revolutionfrom troubled firm Crytek to publisher Deep Silver, the sequel to the frankly pretty rubbish THQ effort re-emerged at this year's Gamescom.
They rolled out both a slightly overblown cinematic trailer, which introduces the game's main plot, and a brief section of gameplay, which looks competent if slightly unremarkable.
is certainly a busy team these days; not only is the British studio hard at work on Total War: Warhammer, but at Gamescom yesterday it was announced that it's also handling Halo Wars 2.
Rather than the slightly po-facedthat released for Just Cause 3 at E3 2015, the studio's Gamescom effort, first demoed during yesterday's Microsoft conference, is exactly what I want to see from a trailer for this game.
Namely; cheesy rock music, over-the-top accents, and plenty of inventive uses for hero Rico's grappling hook, parachute, and arsenal of explosive weapons.
Oh, baby. The general public got its first chance to see Dark Souls 3 in action attoday, during the Microsoft Xbox One press conference. Don't worry PC fans; the game's not a console exclusive, it'll be winging its way to Windows simultaneously next year.
Judging from the snippets of gameplay, Hidetaka Miyazaki, who returns to the series after missing out on Dark Souls 2, has learned some lesson from his Gothic PS4 hit Bloodborne. The combat looks faster than before, more visceral and aggressive.
Thesort of... wasn't, really. It was still Resi 4, of course, and therefore brilliant, but PC players who had been hoping to experience Capcom's action horror classic in the best way possible were left slightly underwhelmed by some fairly muddy texture work.
Leave it to the fans to sort things out. Two plucky modders simply known as Cris and Albert have been revising and polishing the game's graphics for the. They're about 50% done right now, but as this trailer shows, things are looking good.
Layers of Fear is a horror game that focuses on the psychological; rather than playing as a grizzly soldier hacking zombies to death, you're instead trapped in the mind of an insane painter, where your surroundings can twist and change with each turn of the camera.
Developed by the excellently named Bloober Team, whose most famous game was probably the first-person horror(which also toyed with the player's vision, as they tried to outrun a fearsome basilisk), Layers of Fear aims to offer "insight into the madness that entwines a human being."

, the final DLC pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is out today on consoles, with the PC version set to roll out in roughly a month. Publisher Activision has released a trailer for the final episode of spin-off mode Exo Zombies, Descent, which is included in the pack.
Starring Jon Bernthal, John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan and the mighty Bruce Campbell, thehas gotten steadily more ridiculous over the last few episodes, and this one appears to take place in some kind of underwater palace.
You may remember, the side-scrolling browser game which had you stomping through your gloomy realm as a solitary monarch, flinging coins at peasants in order to get them building defenses and taking up arms against the vicious bands of trolls that emerged each night.
Even with the limitations of a browser-based game, it was a unique and enjoyable adventure, so I'm excited to see what developer Thomas van den Berg can do with the concept now that he's tamed up with indie publisher. Here's the first trailer.
has updated the modding tools for its open world zombie game Dying Light, allowing modders to mess around with terrain editing and custom models for the first time.
To celebrate, the Polish studio is holding anothercontest. The modder who designs the most creative piece of custom content can win an Alienware rig, along with a bunch of other goodies.
Electronic Artsthe very first footage of Mirror's Edge: Catalyst in action, and although it's a very brief little snippet of the game's smooth free-running action, it's enough to get fans of the original excited.
Rather than the strict lines of the, Catalyst will offer players the chance to explore a huge open cityscape, with plenty of places for you to mistime a jump and fall a few hundred metres to land with a splat on an unfortunate civilian's car bonnet.
We'll see more of Star Wars: Battlefront's dogfighting Fighter Squadron mode during EA's Gamescomtomorrow, but here's a little glimpse to tide you over.
Play GTA Online from today through to the weekend, and you'll earnrewards from playing the Pacific Standard Public Deposit Bank heist.

developer Hi-Rez Studios has announced Paladins, a free-to-play team-based shooter with character classes and a card collection element.
It's hard to look at the initial images that have been released and not immediately think of Blizzard's upcoming shooter, which is probably not what High-Rez would want, but Paladins does bring a few unique ideas to the table.
The open world of's Mad Max game isn't just filled with deserts, crows and hollering War Boys. It also features a number of scattered Strongholds, places that offer a tiny slice of civilization amongst a whole lot of post-apocalyptic nihilism.
They're the subject of the latest trailer for the upcoming action game, which continues to look pretty good. The slightly dull-looking lead character's no Mel Gibson or Tom Hardy, but Avalanche seem to have nailed the insane stunts and gas-guzzling chaos ofpretty well.
Spanish ninjahas been confirmed for Street Fighter 5, and he's sporting a bit of a new look. By which I mean he has a shirt this time.
In addition to the new threads, Vega's move list has been expanded; he can now sheathe his trademark razor claws (which are cheating anyway, surely?) in order to switch over to a grappling stance.
Developer William Dubé has just released a new trailer for hisRPG Jotun, and it's looking very nice indeed. In it we meet the Storm Jotun Hagalaz, one of the game's oversized bosses.
Successfully funded to the tune $64,265 CAD last year, Jotun is a beautifully hand-drawn blend of Norse myth-inspired exploration and combat. It casts players as a warrior named Thora, who is trying to prove herself to the gods in order to enter Valhalla.
With Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain loomingon the horizon, Konami has revealed the recommended and minimum requirements for the PC version of the stealth action game.
As expected, they're much the same as for the game's playable prologue, though the RAM requirements are slightly higher. Nothing there that's going to tax medium to high-end PCs too badly, though.
The Kickstarter campaign for Red Ash,'s spiritual successor to his classic Mega Man action-platformer series, to secure its funding target.
It ended up with a funding level of $519,999, some way short of the required $800,000. The project's not a total wash, though; a roughly eight-hour prologue called Red Ash: The KalKanon Incident will, thanks to funding from Chinese producer FUZE Entertainment.
