E3 2012: First Look At Rare M-Rated Nintendo Game ‘ZombiU’ Exclusively For Wii U

ZombiU

While the motion gaming of the Nintendo Wii has a massive family-friendly appeal, it never much impressed more seasoned gamers who wanted less cartoony party games to play. The creation of Microsoft’s Kinect and PlayStation’s Move have opened doors to more substantial motion gaming options, but the arrival of Nintendo’s Wii U looks to be hoping to lure some of those gamers their way with the announcement of ZombiU.

Whether the game ends up being a fun zombie game or not remains to be seen, but, in the very least, it does have some cool first peeks. The first is a trailer set to a haunting rendition of British national anthem “God Save the Queen” that’s reminiscent of that fantastic first Dead Island trailer, while the second is a gameplay trailer showing off how you’ll use the Wii U.

Check them both out by continuing below.

Gears of War: Jugdment

When the story of Marcus Fenix, Dom, Cole Train, Baird, and the rest of the COGS ended with trilogy-maker Gears of War 3, it was generally known that more games would eventually be made. The question was how long down the road would Epic Games wait to make another, and where would they go in the story with the threat Locust and Lambent threats taken care of, and their popular lead character, Fenix (voiced by John DiMaggio of Bender from Futurama fame), seemingly out of the picture.

The answers? Well, as it turns out, Epic didn’t want to wait long. A new installment in the series has been announced, titled Gears of War: Judgment, that will cover the rest of the questions by being a prequel. The game is set basically right at the start of all the chaos you just finally finished dealing with in Gears 3. It takes place about two weeks after E-Day (Emergence Day), and about fourteen years prior to the events of the original Gears of War.

God of War: Ascension

The mighty Kratos is back again, this time for a prequel story titled God of War: Ascension.

Sony brought plenty of exciting treats to show off for the game, starting with a nice gameplay demo and followed by the reveal of the first ever God of War multiplayer gameplay.

Taking place only six months after he was tricked by the god Ares into murdering his wife and child, Kratos is angrier than ever and seeking vengeance. With the multiplayer option, players will choose a god to align themselves with—Zeus, Ares, Poseidon, or Hades—and battle others to gain their favor and unlock new items and abilities to use against your foes.

You can see the gameplay and multiplayer demos for God of War: Ascension on the other side.

Dishonored

Another game shown off at E3 was for Dishonored, the new title from developer Arkane Studios and publisher Bethesda Softworks. A brand new (and amazing) gameplay trailer was released first, followed by a demo.

As seen in the first cinematic trailer, the game offers up a Neo-Victorian setting paired with a steampunk style. It combines first-person action gameplay with stealth gameplay, and players can approach it however they see fit—whether that be through massacring anyone in your way, or without killing a single soul. You’ll accomplish this using your expertise in many different weapons, as well as your extremely useful supernatural abilities.

Be sure to check out the new gameplay trailer and demo for Dishonored below now!

Tomb Raider

Last year’s E3 brought with it a peek at the video game reboot (a movie reboot is also in the works) of the Tomb Raider franchise, complete with an origins story and new look for the famed Lara Croft.

This year developer Crystal Dynamics and publisher Square Enix brought with them even more goodies from the game in the form of a brand new gameplay trailer and a demo of the game in action as you’ll play it.

This is a game getting a lot of positive attention thanks to footage such as this, but unfortunately we still have to wait until 2013 to get our hands on it.

E3 2012: Two Epic New ‘Assassin’s Creed 3’ Gameplay Demos Strike

Assassin's Creed III

The Assassin’s Creed franchise had become pretty stale lately with a new game every single year and the previous three in a row set in Italy with protagonist Ezio Auditore. However, even though a year off would have probably been for the best, the decision to jump to a completely different point in time is looking to be a very smart one by Ubisoft.

Assassin’s Creed III moves to the American Revolution, and a couple new gameplay demos shown off at E3 have a decent little buzz growing around the game. The first demo shows the assassin you’ll be playing as, but instead of navigating an ancient city, he’s making his way through snowy forests and enemy forts (though there will still be cities as well, such as Boston). The second (and possibly even more exciting) demo reveals a new layer to Assassin’s Creed gameplay: naval warfare. Players will take the wheel of a massive vessel and head out sea where some serious Master and Commander cannon fire will be exchanged.

To see the two new Assassin’s Creed III gameplay demos (as well as a new cinematic trailer) for yourself, head below now.

E3 2012: Gameplay Demo For Post Apocalyptic Zombie Game ‘The Last Of Us’ Shown

The Last of Us

Naughty Dog, the team behind the ridiculously good Uncharted trilogy, were also in attendance at E3 to show off their new game, The Last of Us.

Not a whole lot is known about the game other than it focuses on a man and a girl who, together, are making their way through and trying to survive the aftermath of the apocalypse. The devastation is caused by some sort of pandemic, which causes some people to become zombie-like mutated beings (as was seen in the debut trailer for the game), and you’ll have the option of going to war with enemies or trying to make your way through dangerous areas unseen.

A gameplay demo was presented at the convention, and while it doesn’t give us more on this zombie mutants, it does show off the combat with human enemies (everyone who survives the apocalypse becomes dangerous in one way or another), and how your teenage companion can help out.

Head on below now to see the gameplay demo for The Last of Us.

E3 2012: ‘Heavy Rain’ Creator Quantic Dream Announces ‘Beyond: Two Souls’ With Ellen Page

Beyond: Two Souls

The highly anticipated new game from Heavy Rain creator Quantic Dream was announced at E3, and it will be called Beyond: Two Souls.

Unlike Heavy Rain, the new game doesn’t involve you interacting with everything around you, and instead focuses more on action and story. It tells a supernatural story that spans fifteen years. You play as Jodie Holmes, who has some kind of bond with an unseen spiritual being who helps her on her journey and protects her from the many dangerous people who are after her.

Even better, Jodie is played by Ellen Page via performance capture technology. The ultra realistic look is hugely important when characters are an important part of your game, and that’s what players have come to expect from Quantic.

You can check out the impressive preview of Beyond: Two Souls below now.

Halo 4 Promethean

One of the most anticipated games arriving later this year, Halo 4 reunites gamers with their beloved Master Chief.

Since first being announced at last year’s E3, fans have been itching to get a real look at some gameplay from the newest Halo adventure, and now they have it. It still looks like the Halo we all know and love, but with a few changes (such as weapons that automatically modify according to the player) and additions that look promising…including a whole new enemy known as the Prometheans (you’ll know them when you see them).

You can check out the Halo 4 gameplay demo by clicking on over to the other side now.
