[E3 2014] Fable Legends Beta coming this Fall

10 years ago Fable brought something new to the RPG world by giving a player the ability to choose their own path of good, evil, or a little of both.  Now Fable Legends will again bring something new to the XBox One, a multi-player experience where a player can team up with other heroes or reign terror down as their own personal villain.  This week at E3 Microsoft revealed gameplay footage showing the beautiful enviorment, intrepid heroes, and a little of what it’s like to be bad.

[E3 2014] Battlefield: Hardline – Six Minutes

… And those six minutes speak for themselves. Lately, the industry has seen a trend: merging the single- and multi-player game-play dynamics into one, connected experience. Red Dead Redemption’s Posse mode, GTA Online, Payday I & II, and many others have tried to create the most dynamic possible experience, bringing together the narrative quality of a single-player and the dynamic flexibility of a multi-player experience. Battlefield: Hardline is the latest foray into this trend, and from what we’ve seen, is poised to make some serious waves.

As you’ve likely heard, Battlefield: Hardline is a heavily-media inspired title, structured episodically and informed by works such as Heat, The Wire, and similar crime epics. The new direction allows the team at Visceral Games – that’s right, the developers behind the Dead Space franchise, and Dante’s Inferno – to jump the military ship in favor of a world of crooked cops, and brutal criminals and everything in between.

[E3 2014] Tom Clancy’s The Division is a Different Kind of Dystopia

We’ve know about Tom Clancy’s The Division for some time now. We’ve know it’s set in America, post-plague, in some very desperate times. We’ve known that you play as a member of the titular Division – a group of in-plain-sight heroes dedicated to maintain order in the chaos.  I don’t think any of us were on the fence about this title, given last year’s excellent game-play demo but Ubisoft’s heavy-hitter wasn’t content to rest on its laurels.

At both the Microsoft and Ubisoft E3 Press Briefings, Tom Clancy’s The Division was shown to great effect.

In an in-engine game-play demo at Microsoft’s E3 Press Conference, the new Snowdrop engine stretched its legs, and showed some amazing fidelity and flexibility. Later, during Ubisoft’s Press Conference, The Division showed a more poignant, cinematic side.

[E3 2014] Rainbow Six: Siege rises from the ashes of Patriots, and Shines

The biggest surprise of Ubisoft’s E3 2014 Press Conference was, without a doubt, the announcement of Rainbow Six: SiegeRainbow Six has been in holding pattern ever since bad timing and sensitive subject matter froze the title in an interminable holding pattern. But good news, fans of tactical action don’t have that much longer to wait.

The footage, the gut-punch at the end of a lack-luster Ubisoft presser, is all game-play, and all alpha.  And man, is it sweet.
