Gaming News Roundup – Apr 2
Telltale’s Walking Dead Final Season
This week it was announced that the final season of Telltale’s biggest series will be premiering later this year. This season will be bringing a close to Clementine’s long-running growth throughout the series and after last season’s lackluster reception, I’m sure Telltale will be trying to make this season much more impactful and memorable. Let’s hope they’re incorporating everything they’ve learned since they released the first season, which is what made them so popular. Maybe take some tips from my article about Telltale? We’ll see when The Walking Dead’s final season releases.
Accompanying its Pixar movie of the same name and release date, The Incredibles is getting a LEGO game adaptation. The story of it will cover both the first and second movie’s plots. You can check out the announcement trailer for it here. Be sure to mark your calendars for June 15th to go see The Incredibles 2 in theaters and to stop by a GameStop on the way home to play as the Parr family afterwards.
No Man’s Sky On Xbox
It looks like No Man’s Sky is going to be coming to the Xbox One this summer along with its biggest update. I’m sure many remember how disappointing the game was when it released on PS4 in August 2016. Many aspects and features that were promised to be in the game were missing when it finally came out, making its players feel betrayed and lied to. The game has since been updated a few times, and according to its current players, it’s a lot better than before, so no worries for anyone that’s wanting to pick it up for Xbox.
Hellblade Coming To Xbox
Another former PlayStation exclusive is heading to the Xbox One. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will be coming to the Xbox One on April 11th, which is awesome because I’ve really wanted to play it since I first saw it. It seems to be a real gem of a game according to our very own Dominic Watkins in his review of it that you can read here. I’m glad more can experience it. I’m also glad that the Xbox is getting more games to play since Sea of Thieves was such a disappointment. You can see the trailer for it here.
Red Faction Re-Mars-tered (ugh)
Apparently a remastered version (I’m not going to say re-mars-tered again) of Red Faction: Guerilla is coming to Xbox, PS4, and PC. Red Faction is a series with a pretty sizeable cult fan base who I’m sure is super excited to see this since the last game was released in 2011. Perhaps if this remaster performs well, there’ll be a sequel? Who knows. Either way, the game is great and if you missed it the first time around, you should definitely pick it up this time.
Outlast 2 Adds Deleted Scenes
For those who didn’t have a great time with Outlast 2‘s very difficult stealth, but still wanted to enjoy the story, Red Barrels is adding a mode that’ll make the game much easier to get through. The new story mode will allow players to experience the game without nearly as much stress from the running and hiding aspect of the game.
There will also be a patch for the PC version that’ll include a few deleted scenes that were previously cut due to certain countries’ rating system. Apparently, if they were included in the original release, the game may have been given an adults only rating. Of course it’s only coming to PC because it possibly wouldn’t be allowed on consoles if it’s as severe as it seems, but if you have it on PC, it’s something to look forward to.
That’s the news for this week! Not too much game-changing stuff, but a good week for Xbox players. Excited to see Hellblade coming to the Xbox? Nervous about how Telltale’s Walking Dead will end?
