Sup guys? Here’s what’s been going on in the video game world over the past week.
First of all, as you can see in the nifty artwork at the top of my article, the first peace of DLC to come with the season pass for Assassin’s Creed 3 will be a single player mission entitled, “The Tyranny of King Washington.” This will take place in an alternate reality in which George Washington, the hero of the American Revolution, actually decided to become king of the newly independent union. And he becomes a tyrannical king at that. Now, it’s up to our new assassin, Connor, who helped during the revolution, to bring down the evil King of the United States. I, for one, am very intrigued by the concept of this mission. As you may or may not know from US History, George Washington was offered the title of “King” after the Revolution but he declined saying that the new union would not be ruled by a king. I love how Ubisoft puts twists on actual historical events.
Anyway, in other Assassin’s Creed news, there’s been a new trailer released that shows some of Connor’s back story. Him as a child having his village destroyed, to him being trained to become an assassin. And here it is.
Very cool stuff.
Alright, on to Halo 4. Well, to be more specific, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. Yes, the miniseries made it’s premier last Friday. And here is episode 1!
I’m digging this series so far. And I really enjoyed the Master Chief teaser at the beginning of the episode and I really can’t wait to see a live action Master Chief!
In other Halo 4 news, I mentioned the other week that the Flood will be making it’s return in Halo 4. When that was originally announced, all we had was a screenshot. Now we have a gameplay demo thanks to the guys at IGN! Enjoy.
Ok, now some stuff that has nothing to do with Assassin’s Creed or Halo 4. Well, it seems that the hit game Angry Birds is going to a galaxy far, far away. Yes, on November, 8th, there will be an Angry Birds Star Wars game. And here’s the teaser trailer for it.
Yep. That’s happening.
Finally, so last week was the release of Resident Evil 6. I was looking forward to this game. It looks great both visually and gameplay wise, and the story looks pretty cool too. It seems that both the stories of Leon Kennedy and Chris Redfield will intertwine as they take one both the classic T-Virus zombies we know from the first few RE games, and the crazy parasitic foes we know from recent titles. I haven’t had the chance to pick up a copy, but here’s the launch trailer for the game!
Man. I forgot how good that trailer is. I really wanna pick up a copy now.
Anyway, that’s it for now! Check back next time for more stuff!
