John Marston Joins Arthur Morgan for New Red Dead Redemption 2 Story Trailer

Rockstar Games has released their third trailer for the upcoming open world game set in the wild, wild west. Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to the PlayStation 3 / Xbox 360 hit title Red Dead Redemption which released in May of 2010 after stealing the show at the E3 event of that respective year. It had one of the largest wrap-around lines I’ve ever seen for a behind-closed-doors showing of a game for which not much was known at the time.

In RDR 2 players will find themselves learning a lot more about the time period before the events of Red Dead Redemption. As the trailer opens we see that the gang of outlaws which RDR’s main protagonist used to run with is on the run in a time when outlaws were becoming a thing of the past. The clip tells viewers that the game is at least partially set in 1899 when ‘the west had nearly been tamed’ and ‘the age of gunslingers and outlaws had almost passed into myth’.

Why you’re wrong, Radical Heights isn’t like other Battle Royale games

Tomorrow, Radical Heights brings NEW features to the concept of Battle Royale games, and Boss Key Productions is the first company with the bravery to get creative in this new, explosively popular sub-genre of online shooter mayhem.

Fresh off the heels of the currently most popular sub-genre in gaming, Radical Heights was announced today by Boss Key Productions. An American game company, Boss Key is best known for recently admitting defeat in the attempt to get LawBreakers popular, and their pseudo-celebrity (Gears of War Creator) Cliffy B. Even though players are probably already thinking negative thoughts about a game they haven’t even tried yet – I urge you gamers, try it. It’s free and we’ve seen a great mind at work with lot’s of positive fan reception in LawBreakers. While it’s a shame that the title will need to go free-to-play and be completely revamped, possibly never gaining a steady player-base, that doesn’t mean Boss Key has nothing to offer. We’ve already got gameplay footage to check out, and the underdog effect in place.

More importantly, this game is nothing like what you’ve played before. Instead of just copying the Battle Royale formula, Boss Key Productions has shown that they have the guts needed to bring truly exciting and original design ideas to the genre that could’ve been sent to its doom quicker than every flash-in-the-pan fad that came before it.

The premise is something different from what we’ve heard before. A reality television game show called Reality Heights is a phenomenon in the world in which players kill to gather up cash and spend it, or bank it overseas, throughout the ultimate search for guns and gear. Washed up folks who need some hope in life might come here, psychopaths who don’t fit in elsewhere could show up, but others just want to have some fun and live life in the fast lane.

CASH FLOW

Everything from the reason you naturally want to keep playing to the details of how each match will play out are different, and perhaps better, than other BR games.

In this game you’ll be able to earn tons of money and get items that you actually want with it. You’ll won’t be creating a new, addicting, anti-consumer habit with $20 costumes that just get replaced next week but instead an actual gamer’s game with plenty of in-game stuff to earn and brag about and destroy with. It’s been a while since a game came out with a real focus on the gamers, and it’s refreshing that Boss Key plans to keep the cash flowing in Radical Heights.

Cash Is King – Carry Over Your Earnings

With heavy influences from the 1980s and 90s, particularly ballad rock and social commentaries, this game is set to bring some new ideas to the genre. Instead of only relying on scavenging and starting from scratch every time, players will be able to carry over cash found in-game. They’ll still have to start each match with $0 in-hand while fighting to survive and get to areas where they can buy the weapons they want. However, cash can be banked and carried over to the prize room. This introduces a more iterative gameplay experience while still challenging the skill levels of players and maintaining a fair and universal playing field.

This is something we haven’t seen in Battle Royale yet, and likely ahead of the trend since titles from large companies will soon try their hand at the newly famous game mode as well. For this reason it is clear that Boss Key isn’t just trying to ride on the fame of other titles but instead is a derivative product aiming to add new perspectives and features to the concept of Battle Royale games. Risk and Reward aims to be a much more important idea in Radical Heights and you’re now fighting for something more important than just costumes. In addition to the aforementioned features players can personalize their own showroom with the money they make.

Unique Game Show Moments

Things like “Spin The Wheel” or “What’s Behind Door #1?” become decisions players must make within the madness of a sprawling, open-world shooter where you all die one day and you only live to tell about it if you’re on a crazy run. These additional experience enhancements will happen randomly, are unpredictable, and while they won’t give you an unfair advantage – they will help in your quest for victory. The risk of pursuing such moments also opens up the chance for others to take in the reward of denying you that victory by assaulting you afterwards, so be careful out there!

Unconventional Warfare Weaponry

It’s a game show in which something like a trampoline could even end up having way more to do with your death than you thought. It’s not too serious of a simulation, so confetti bombs and remote explosives are featured as well as inflatable decoys. The many gadgets in the game that players think up during this X-Treme Early Access development stage will best be understood by those who get in the game early, so be ready to play tomorrow.

Fame System, Custom Kill-Cards

Hundreds of items exist in the game that can be purchased by currency that you only get by actually playing the game! Sure, there’s some cosmetic items too. But besides that, players will explore in order to acquire, kill in order to gain, and collect to spend gratuitous amounts of Benjamin Franklins for upgrading their show room, enhancing their arsenal at weapon stations, customizing their character, kill cards, and more.

Monster Hunter: World Gets DMC Crossover w/ Trailer As Popularity Remains Sky High

Monster Hunter: World and Fortnite are currently topping charts as some of the most popular games in the world (only second to perhaps the Grand Theft Auto series in total sales, but likely more active than even that game’s online mode).

Right now we are seeing a great time for crossover content in games with Final Fantasy receiving Assassin’s Creed characters stepping into the world as well as other Square Enix properties such as Laura Croft making her appearance in the FF world. Continuing that new age legacy is Capcom with the Devil May Cry crossover for Monster Hunter: World, a game that is taking the planet by storm.

For many years gamers in Japan, US, and Europe (other countries don’t count, JK) have been enjoying the MH series but it was usually portable. Gamers of all kinds, long-time fans of MH or not, had longed for a chance to experience the title in high-fidelity quality on a home console again. With Monster Hunter: World they finally got their chance. Capcom took a huge risk making this game as the costs are a lot higher than usual MH games and many financial experts had predicted that the series was mostly a Japan phenomenon relying on Japan’s high volume of portable game sales. Fortunately for all parties involved, it turns out that was a false prediction, the game is a massive hit and by all accounts a good game.

Ubisoft Showcases Far Cry 5 Map Editor to Expert Community Members

The Map Editor for upcoming Montana-based Far Cry 5 has been shown off by Ubisoft to some expert members of their community and fanbase who gave their first impressions after being flown out this December for an exclusive hands on experience. Some high quality (albeit brief) footage has also been released of this event in which Community Developer Laureline thanks the active Far Cry community and the actual Far Cry 5 Map Editor can be seen in action as well.

Kemet1976 states that its the most advanced editor he’s seen yet, and that the experience has blown him away. Setho-1 is also a well known map creator in the Far Cry community and states that the amount of customization that can be done now with maps is massively improved. Restylex says “there’s no limitation for me at this moment when I look at the Far Cry 5 Map Editor”. And akilyoung who has been a community figure since 2012 describes the application as not being stripped of anything, but instead feels like things were added in above and beyond expectations.

In addition to getting the first look at this Map Editor for Far Cry 5, it appears that Ubisoft’s Far Cry team has even been open to ideas from these esteemed, most active members of their map making community. That’s always a good thing, but sometimes it’s just words. In this case, we have HorTyS (Far Cry Community Member since 2003) his word that the team is listening to feedback actively and attentively on how to make the program as powerful as possible. And since he himself is from Montana, there was a lot of potential feedback to be given. One of the map ideas HorTyS is considering includes a re-creation of his home town in Montana, a testament to how powerful this Editor truly is.
