Well we all knew it was coming. Yesterday’s videos all but confirmed it, Sony’s new marketing campaign was for Playstation Allstars Battle Royale! The final video released this morning shows Nathan Drake, Kratos, Cole and Sackboy fighting it out in a room.

It’s slightly sad to see all this hype was just for this one game, but it’s a pretty cool Live Action trailer, so check it out below, and remember if you’re a Vita owner or a PS Plus subscriber you can download the PSABR beta right away, or the rest of the world can download the beta once the PS store updates later today.

In another new video Ubisoft released yesterday they finally have given more details about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed 3 Liberation (Vita). Through this new video we learn a lot about the new Assassin, Aveline, her history and why she is fighting. Interestingly enough, we also learn that the new game will include different costumes that Aveline will don to disguise herself from her enemies.

The video show 3 main costumes that she will use throughout the game.

  1. The mandatory Assassin’s outfit. This is similar to all the other games, she will be able to run around freely but will be attacked by guards.
  2. A Lady’s Ball Gown – While wearing this ball gownAveline will be able to walk around freely, but will still be able to carry some weapons with her to stealthily attack her enemies.
  3. Slave Outfit – To further disguise herself she can dress up as a slave. Apparently she won’t have weapons while disguised but she will be invisible to all guards.

One other fascinating detail we discovered is that Aveline will be able to change between these outfits at shops all throughout town so they will play a big part in completing memories with 100% synchronization.

 

 

IGN also released the last video in their behind the scenes Developer Diaries with Ubisoft about Assassin’s Creed. These videos have gone in depth showing how they’ve come to the ideas of the new game, the challenges they’ve faced and what they’ve accomplished. These videos are great watches and we recommend you watch them all, we’ve embedded all 4 below so you can watch them all together!

Ubisoft has just released a new video about the future of Assassin’s Creed, but interestingly enough, this time it’s actually a job posting.

A brief 2:45 video shows some scenes from AC3 and then a lot of interviews with the workers at Ubisoft themselves. They talk about their experiences working with Ubisoft and what to expect when working on a project this large!

This is a pretty interesting idea for getting people interested in applying for positions, so if you’ve got a creative mindset, technical skills or just want to give it a shot, head on over to Ubisoft’s job postings and apply yourself, otherwise take a quick look at the video below!

Just this morning we noticed that the official Assassin’s creed twitter image had changed to from the standard AC3 logo to a little more ominous looking red coloured abstergo logo (shown below). Seemingly to being a viral puzzle/teaser for it’s much anticipated upcoming release of Assassin’s Creed 3, 3 mysterious tweets were sent sounding very much like a puzzle or riddle (you can read them down below). Can you figure out the mystery?

Shortly after the tweets went out the logo changed back and a more official sounding tweet was sent saying:

Sorry for the disruption, Assassins. We were experiencing some technical issues, but we’re back up to 100% now! Thanks for your patience!

Followed directly after by:

No spoilers, it was just a glitch. Please restrict any discussion to our forums for customer support: http://ubi.li/D57n

We can only assume this is the beginning of a new viral campaign to hype up AC3 which is to be released in North America October 30th along side it’s Vita counterpart Liberation.

Here are the 3 tweets sent out this morning:

#1 – _-_-_He is gone. #16 is no more. And now they begin. To search for 1 more _-_-_

#2 – _-_-_THEY are responsible. Abstergo’s to blame. They play with our lives. Like it’s only a game_-_-_

#3 – _-_-_They search for the ‘’prophet’’ They’re grasping at straws. Their ill-conceived plans, are riddled with flaws_-_-_

 

And here are the two different twitter pictures.

UPDATE: Another tweet has been found on the Assassin’s Creed Wiki this one saying:

We’ve just received a mysterious message from within the inner workings of the Animus. “.. .- — .- .-.. .. …- .” It… it can’t be!

From looking at this latest clue, this is Morris code for “Iamalive”. Who it could be referring to we’re not sure, but it could be possibly referring to Subject 16 that was trapped within the Animus.

So what do you make of this assassin’s? What can these messages mean?

A new animated short film was released by EA today detailing the destruction a marker, much like the one Isaac Clarke found himself dealing with in the original Dead Space games, unleashed upon an unsuspecting colony, this time witnessed by a new protagonist Sergeant John Carver.

Earlier reports of of Dead Space 3 being in development have leaked and this almost all but confirms it. What we don’t know is who this Sergeant John Carver is, and if earlier rumours are to be believed, Dead Space 3 will feature co-op and Carver will most likely be that co-op character.

On the official site we’ve noticed there is also a countdown clock (in an alien language), counting down to Monday at 9am, possibly pointing to a Dead Space 3 reveal time. After all, E3 does start next week so what better time to make this reveal?

Watch the short movie below and drop us a comment and let us know if you’re excited about another Dead Space game and what you think of Carver?

Moving from a firm launch date of June 26th, THQ’s Darksider’s II has just been pushed back to a “August 2012” release date.

THQ states the push back is purely for the development team, as they wanted to polish up the game and make sure that it meets their high expectations.

Just a week before THQ EVP Danny Bilson in an interview had said that there was no firm launch date for Darksiders II, so rumours are now put to rest showing his claim to have substance.

Keep reading for a quick Q&A with the the team:

Questions & Answers:

Q.) When will the game be available in North America?
A.) Darksiders II is scheduled to be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in August of 2012.  The release date will vary by region (as they did with a June release).  The exact street dates will be issued for each region in the days to come.
Q.) Has the date been pushed back to tie in with Nintendo’s WiiU™ launch?
A.) The date was shifted to ensure we meet the high quality threshold that we are committed to achieving.  It has nothing to do with any other platform releases.
Q.) Is Darksiders II being pushed back because of the recent layoffs at Vigil Games?
A.) No, the staffing changes at Vigil Games have not impacted the release date.
Q.) Is content going to be cut from the game?
A.) Definitely not! As we approached the game’s completion date, the team asked for more time to polish the huge amount of content included in this ambitious project.  We are all committed to making Darksiders II the highest-quality game possible and the additional time will allow the team to do just that.  The game content remains unchanged, as do our future DLC plans.
Q.) Are you truly pushing the date back to make Darksiders II a better game?
A.) Absolutely, that is the only goal fueling this decision.  Nothing is more important to us than quality and thankfully our company’s current operational position allows us to make the right choice for Darksiders II.
Q.) Aside from getting it later, will this affect my pre-order?
A.) Definitely not, everyone who has/does pre-order Darksiders II will receive the Limited Edition at release, along with any associated retail exclusive content.
Q.) Will the game definitely release in August or will it be delayed again?
A.) This small delay is to allow additional time for polish and bug fixing. As we’ve stated in numerous articles and videos, Darksiders II is substantially larger game than its predecessor and the ambition of this project requires extra time to polish to the high standards that Vigil Games and THQ are committed to.
Keep it locked at eTechTour and we’ll give you any other updates as they come!
