Gaming News Roundup – Jan 8
Avengers Game Gets An Interesting New Director
We still haven’t heard much about the Avengers project that’s in the works by Square Enix, but this latest news could point toward the possible direction and quality we can expect to see from it. The co-director of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy has left their position at Naughty Dog to go work on this game with Square Enix. This game still has to be a pretty long way from being finished, but I’m still excited to see how it turns out, especially with this new director.
Paladins Seriously Adds A Battle Royale Mode
Battle royale is really popular at the moment. Not too surprising since it can be made compatible with just about any shooter as long as it’s balanced. The newest adaptation of the battle royale mode is brought to you by Paladins, in a mode called Battlegrounds. They’re not even trying to hide it. This particular version of the battle royale mode is interesting due to the fact that Paladins has a variety of characters to choose from, adding another layer of strategy to the formula. It’s not clear when the mode will be available to play, but you can check out the trailer for it here.
Attack On Titan 2 Game Gets Release Date
Another Attack On Titan game is on the way. It’ll be hitting shelves March 20th on PS4, Switch, and PlayStation Vita. This sequel looks to cover the second season of the anime, as you may notice from the trailers that it has out like this one. Hopefully this satisfies the fans of the anime.
