Cyberpunk 2077 Teaser (YouTube)

Intended as a direct sequel of the pen and paper game Cyberpunk 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 looks absolutely amazing. Of course, the video above is a CGI teaser and not representative of actual gameplay, but it seems to have a lot of potential. Developed by the Polish company CD Projekt Red, the game developer has not yet announced a release date.

To understand a bit more what inspired this vision of Cyberpunk 2077, I suggest you watch this video.

Note: The teaser song is titled “Bullets” by Archive.

Battlefield 3: Aftermath DLC

It’s been a little less than a month that the Armored Kill DLC has been available for Battlefield 3! It’s a great amount of fun, although I haven’t had much time to play it lately. That being said, the mystery around the next DLC, Aftermath, is making me look forward to playing it! This isn’t really news for anyone who has been keeping track of the DLCs, but Aftermath will include the following:

  • Urban warfare on four new maps
  • Fight through the dust and rubble, use the earthquake damaged terrain to your tactical advantage
  • New heavily modified military and civilian vehicles – ingenuity and firepower combined
  • New game mode
  • New assignments, achievements and dog tags

At the time of writing this, no details nor screenshots have been released for the Aftermath DLC, but the descriptions above sound promising. The possible addition of several civilian vehicles could be fun. As for the unnamed and undescribed new game mode, we’ll have to see! I’m expecting a clever variation of Rush mode. Expected this December 2012, I have plenty of other games (and classes) to keep me busy in the mean time.

More details will be updated directly on Battlelog!

Guild Wars 2 has a release date

One new message appeared in my inbox this morning. A message from Arena Net. I thought they were simply informing their fans about the next Beta weekend. And although I was partially right, I was astonished to find out that Guild Wars 2 had a release date.

If you haven’t been following the development of Guild Wars 2, the game has been in development since 2007. The first few gameplay videos started rolling out in late 2010. Pre-purchase was available in April 2012. And today, June 28th, they announced that the game will be released in 8 weeks.

August 28th, 2012 is the official Guild Wars 2 release date. As a fan of the first Guild Wars game, I’m still in shock. It’s been a long 5 years waiting for a release date that seemingly would never change from it’s “TBA” status.
