Since announcing the game this past June, the Swedish developer has been pretty quiet on details about the title. With last night's trailer, it appears that we'll be getting more info with greater frequency now. The main focus of the two-minute video is the moment about halfway through when a bunch of monsters bust through a door and attack everyone. Prior to that, things are pretty quiet as four people make their way through some underground area in search of a vault. It's all very moody and while there are familiar beats (i.e., "we're busting into a place to steal some stuff and get out"), the part where "things go bad" and you have to try to get away looks hectic. You're not setting up defensive areas to trade bullets with cops, instead you and your buddies are working to just survive against a horrific swarm.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Demo ImpressionsJason Love

It’s worth noting that the demo I played had no co-op to it, it was strictly a 10-minute single-player affair. There were two playable characters (the Empire soldier, Markus, or the Waywatcher, Kerillian) and none of the progression or loot systems were available to try or even peruse. Despite this, there were a few things of note that made me more intrigued in this game; specifically, the way the two characters felt different from one another, and the possibilities that the career paths will present for each hero.

Along with the new weapon, the war pike, and the two new behemoths, the armored Skarn and the agile Kharabak, the "Sharpen Your Skills" update also includes a change that may prove fairly significant. Previously, there wasn't much distinction between the different weapons other than whatever you personally preferred. With the update, damage types have been added to all the weapons and those damage types will affect the behemoths in different ways. For instance, all hammers do blunt damage, which is effective against armor (HI SKARN!) and for stunning behemoths. Other weapons do piercing damage that will weaken a behemoth's limbs, making them more vulnerable to slashing damage. As the developers point out in the video below, it's not necessary to go hunting with a mix of all these damage types, but they do add a new strategic level to the game. Weapons can be customized further with the new "Cell System" that adds slots to a hunter's gear into which "cells" can be dropped to enhance damage, defensive values, or add elemental damage/effects.

There isn't much yet about the game, other than a trailer to set the tone and a few tidbits about co-op gameplay that looks to mix action with strategy.

The announcement arrives as Sony's PlayStation Experience looms ever closer on the horizon (it starts this Saturday, December 9). Dragon's Crown Pro will come to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro with a number of visual enhancements/improvements, including the ability to display at 4k resolution assuming you have a PS4 Pro and a 4k compatible TV. There's also a newly recorded soundtrack featuring a full orchestra, and the same four player co-op options (i.e., local, online, and combo) will still be supported. Best of all, if you owned the original Dragon's Crown and sent those saves to the great PS Cloud in the sky, you can pull that save back down and use with the Pro version of the game.

Ubisoft is celebrating today's new content update by offering a free trial period for the game, which effectively runs from Thursday morning to Sunday night.  Players who participate will be able to play the base game as well as all three expansions, meaning those who bought the game at launch but never purchased DLC will also get a chance to jump back in and see what all has changed.  Should they choose to keep playing after the free weekend is over, players can pick the game up at a steep discount - 67% or 70% off, depending on what version of the game they'd like to grab.

In an hour-long developer stream, the team over at Trendy Entertainment laid out the new content that will be arriving sometime this month. The “Power of the Ancients” update includes a new game mode (Onslaught), new ways to customise characters via Defender packs, and a new HUGE map (they emphasize the size a number of times) that can feature twice as many baddies to duke it out with and as the official dev blog says, “Much more!”. The trailer can be found below, as well as the full livestream on Trendy Entertainment's official YouTube channel, here.

To put this at the top of things, the DLC is very good! The two new classes (Necromancer and Inquisitor) are fun to play based on our time with it thus far, the level cap is now increased to 100, and we're all looking forward to checking out the new areas/loot (once we get that far). There is a lot of content you can get for $43 (base game + DLC) and as we do talk about (briefly) in the stream, it's a really solid action-RPG title.

The first video highlights some of the non-brawler aspects to the game, like using your brains to discover the mysteries lurking within the world.

The first Outbreak title was a slightly different affair, being a top-down, twin-stick shooter with survival and puzzle elements. The New Nightmare shifts to the 3D world and it sounds like this more aligns with what they wanted to do with Outbreak all along. Much like the titles from which it draws upon, New Nightmare will pit you and your buddies against the shambling hordes of the undead and you'll have to scour the environment to find the supplies necessary to survive. Here are some of the features the title touts:

Character skill trees are tuned to the strengths of a particular wizard. For instance, if you're playing Carabel the Glacial, your skill trees will focus around ice spells. The Mechanical Owl enjoys lightning/electricity so much of his tree enhances those spells. While the skill trees may boost certain aspects/attributes of a wizard, all of the wizards will have access to a wide-range of spells across the six different element types (fire, ice, lightning, steam, life, and death). Also, much like Magicka, players can combine spells to create new spells/effects.

Originally released in 2002 and developed by Bioware, Neverwinter Nights is set within the fantasy world of Forgottem Realms and allowed players to experience an entire 40 hour campaign with friends. There was also a Dungeon Master client tool that allowed one player to take on the role of DM and run a custom campaign for friends. Many of these features are similar to what later games, like Sword Coast Legends and Divinity: Original Sin II, implemented within their own framework. So, if you're a fan of those titles, then Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition is likely within your wheelhouse.
