In a bit of a spoiler, Telltale Games just released a screenshot of The Walking Dead on Facebook with characters for Season 2 of the game. Its adventure will continue with Clementine from Season 1, but will also see the reappearance of Omid.
This young male gets picked up by the original group in episode 3 from the first season, but then he parts ways with protagonist Lee in the grand finale, together with his girlfriend Christa. It’s not yet confirmed if she’ll still be alive as well.
The image in question has the two known characters meet up somewhere around Gil’s Pitstop, which is used as a pivotal point in the 400 Days downloadable content for the game.
Don’t worry if you’re concerned about spoilers, as there are still many factors unknown by the teaser image. For instance, it isn’t said whether this emergence is dependent of prior choices or not and that is a big part of this conversational adventure title.
The first episode of Season 2 from the Walking Dead should release this month for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 and be called “All That Remains.”
You know we discussed Deadfall Adventures in some footage before, because we wanted to wait for the game to actually release, so we could discuss the multiplayer, before reviewing it. It looks like this wait was in vain, as you can see in this multiplayer clip below.
Still, a review is a thing that we’re doing now, so you’ll get it in fully detailed video form below. If you’d like some bullet points, we have you covered as well.
Use of the Unreal Engine makes the world look vibrant and detailed, despite lesser character models, which accompany an asinine story, lifted from Indiana Jones. There is some competent shooting components, brought down by easy targets and lacking intelligence. Puzzles alters the dynamic, but their execution can become confusing, as do certain level sections. Despite having a clever, multi-faceted design for multiplayer sections, there is nothing going on there.
For the full view, please watch this short video review.
Reviewing games before they release can be fun. In fact, it’s becoming a rare joy to be able to cover a title before anyone can just buy it in the stores. Then again, sometimes it’s also a chore, because there’s no one to turn to if things go sour. Take, for instance, Deadfall Adventures, whose embargo just lifted today and releases on November 15, 2013. This part below had me stumped for a good half hour, followed by plenty sections like it.
Now then, the only reason why there’s not a sparkly review under yours truly’s name is going back to our original point. Deadfall Adventures has a multiplayer portion of the game that isn’t up yet. That doesn’t stop plenty of publications to post reviews, but I’ll wait it out to actually play some online matches.
Until then, you can still enjoy some gameplay from the Nordic Games shooter, made by those who did the Painkiller HD remake. Here are 10 or so minutes of cut footage. Enjoy.
It’s a Halloween miracle; Ubisoft has dropped their Uplay Passport limiting content in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. It was previously used to access multiplayer, but also single player content and came in the form of a redeemable code upon purchase of a new copy. It will now be made available for anyone through a free download. Those that have already bought a Uplay Passport are advised to contact their respective Ubisoft support network.
Even better: Ubisoft has announced that “Uplay Passport will not be a part of any future Ubisoft games.” Furthermore, the company states that as games are blurring lines between what’s online and offline, “recognized that Passport is no longer the best approach for ensuring that all our customers have the best possible experience with all facets of our games.”
We agree. It’s as simple as that.
Publisher Deep Silver has announced the release of more downloadable content for Metro: Last Light, dubbed the Chronicles Pack. It’s available now for €4.99 and contains three additional missions.
In this pack, players will return to some key moments mentioned in the game, as seen from their companions’ perspective. For instance, Anna takes point with her sniper rifle in the opening mission of the game. Additionally, we get to see how Artyom’s traveling buddy, Pavel, gets to be in the position where you meet him in the game. Finally, your spiritual guide, Khan, explores more strange visions.
Deep Silver announced that this is the final piece of content for the game. We have screenshots, as always.
