For Honor: Marching Fire Preview

For Honor: Marching Fire will be the next content update for Ubisoft’s fighting action game. The expansion will add the PVP mode titled Breach, four warriors of the Wu Lin faction from China, and the newly unveiled PVE mode, Arcade. I recently had the opportunity to try out the new Arcade mode at an Ubisoft event.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Preview

Ubisoft’s upcoming Assassin’s Creed Odyssey continues the open-world RPG direction from Assassin’s Creed Origins, but this time sets the action in 5th century B.C. ancient Greece. I recently had the opportunity to try a demo at a Ubisoft preview event and came away wanting more.

Pit People Preview

This is to say nothing of the expansive and robust cooperative and player-versus-player systems that the game also incorporates.  Put simply, Pit People has a lot to offer, especially to players that were already fans of the wacky Behemoth games that came before.  Given the scope of the project, it’s easy to see why The Behemoth chose to put this particular title through an early-access period.  Make no mistake, however, the studio appears to know exactly what they are doing.  Gamers are advised to keep their eye on Pit People – it’s going to be a good one.

Preview: Gears of War Ultimate Multiplayer Beta

The multiplayer may not be as fast as, say, Modern Warfare or Halo, but there is still a great amount of fun to be had.

Pax Prime Preview: Harmonix Highlights Performance and Discovery in Fantasia

The performance mode in Fantasia continues to impress, as well. Rather than feeling like I was struggling to live up to the standard of expert difficulty in Rock Band, Fantasia made me feel like I was creating something unique, without fretting over a fail state. Stringing together different remixes of a well-known song is exhilarating, as is playing your own percussion track onscreen which then loops in the background. It is something I could see being equally appealing as a party game, and for high-score hunters.
