Gamescom 2012: Game trailer summary - Part 1

Gamescom 2012 is currently on-going at Cologne, Germany and there was just tons of trailers coming out of the event. Instead of continuing the solo posts for each one, I decided to sum it all up in one post for your viewing pleasure. From The Last of Us, Assassin's Creed 3, to a new God of War: Ascension trailer. It's trailers galore!

The Last of Us

 Dead Space 3 Weapon Crafting

This video is more of an explanation really. We know all about co-op as the new feature for Dead Space 3, but now Visceral Games announced weapon crafting. Want a Line Gun with a flamethrower? Boom! You got it.

Crysis 3 Hunter Mode trailer

Crysis 3's Hunter Mode is a new multiplayer mode. Two hunters wearing nanosuits are tasked to prevent a group of Cell soldiers from reaching the extraction point.

ZombiU Gamescom trailer

Sadly, this is the only reason why I want a Wii U.

Assassin's Creed 3 Naval Battles trailer

The Unfinished Swan

You got to love indie games. The Unfinished Swan is a PS3 exclusive and the game is literally a white space. You throw black paint in order to reveal your surroundings. It's one of those games that people wonder if this can be considered art.

Star Wars 1313 gameplay trailer

I haven't been excited for a Star Wars game in a long time. Game looks amazing but it's unusual that until now we have no announcement on 1313's platforms. People are hinting this could be rolled over to next-gen consoles. Either way, can't wait.

God of War: Ascension multiplayer trailer

God of War having multiplayer. I won't bother ranting and just accept it. I hated the fact that Mass Effect 3 was getting a multiplayer, but in the end it turned out as a lot of fun. So I'll just keep quiet because this might turn out fun. Brutally killing another player God of War style does sound good though.

 Planetside 2 trailer

That was quite a handful and I'm pretty sure I'm still missing a couple more trailers and videos. Click out Gamescom archives to have a look at all post related to this year's Gamescom.

Check out Crysis 3's interactive video

Crysis 3 EA just released a new video of Crysis 3 that let's you choose which play style you prefer if you were actually playing the E3 2012 demo. Go stealthy or guns blazing, it's up to you. It's a very unique way to show-case  the two types of approach you can do in a game like Crysis 3.

Crysis 3 seems to be just like the last game but now with a bow in hand. My first reaction when the third game was announced was the fact that it seemed more like an expansion rather than a sequel since setting and the types of enemy you will be facing seem pretty much the same. But I have to be honest, the game still looks amazing. Crytek's  CryEngine 3 is still a new game engine and until now, Crysis 2 is the only game released that runs on it. I'm still waiting for that feature that sets the two games apart, and no, the bow doesn't count.

Crysis 3 is planned for a February 2013 released for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. There are talks about a Wii U port when the console gets released but nothing is certain at this point.

More Crysis 3 - Gameplay Trailer now out

Prophet now has a bow EA finally released that teased gameplay trailer a few days ago. It's all gameplay footage, and from what I see the sequel doesn't look all that different from the second game graphic-wise. It's not a bad thing at all since Crysis 2 is one of the best looking game's to date. Check the trailer below.

After seeing this trailer, I wonder what changes Crytek have in store for the sequel. So far I don't see much, aside from Prophet now wielding a bow. Setting is the same, enemies will be the same, so what's new to set it apart from the second game? It comes out next year so Crytek has a lot of time to hype up this game with the changes.

Crysis 3 is set for a 2013 launch for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

EA teases you with a teaser trailer for Crysis 3

Crysis 3 teaser trailer EA just released a teaser showing a glimpse of Crysis 3 gameplays. It's just 20 seconds long but it sure got me excited. Crytek sure knows how to make a bow look awesome. Check out the teaser below.

Full gameplay trailer will be revealed on April 24, so look out for that.

Crysis 3 is set for a 2013 release for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Crysis 3 officially announced by EA

Crysis 3It was bound to happen but I wasn't expecting a new Crysis announcement in 2012. EA officially announced the game and is set for a 2013 release. No trailer or anything yet but there is a few pictures and cover art(above) now released showing Prophet wielding a bow. The setting is yet again New York City but 24 years after the events of Crysis 2.  Here's the officaly description of the game from EA:

Set in 2047, Prophet is on a revenge mission after uncovering the truth behind Cell Corporation's motives for building the quarantined Nanodomes. The citizens were told that the giant citywide structures were resurrected to protect the population and to cleanse these metropolises of the remnants of Ceph forces. In reality, the Nanodomes are CELL's covert attempt at a land and technology grab in their quest for global domination. With Alien Ceph lurking around every corner and human enemies on the attack, nobody is safe in the path of vengeance. Everyone is a target in Prophet's quest for retribution.
