We’re excited to share the very first gameplay reveal of Horizon Forbidden West with you on State of Play. This unique episode features 14 minutes of never-before-seen gameplay footage captured directly on the PlayStation 5 console, as well as a quick recap with Horizon’s Game Director Mathijs de Jonge and myself.

Horizon Forbidden West continues six months after the events of Horizon Zero Dawn. Aloy, a machine hunter, has travelled west to investigate a mysterious and deadly blight. In these uncharted lands, she will meet strange new tribes and encounter ever more deadly machines. Together with old friends and new companions, she must brave this dangerous frontier to find the answers she needs to save life on Earth.

14 minutes of new gameplay for Horizon Forbidden West

In the State of Play gameplay footage, Aloy has sent her loyal friend Erend into the remains of San Francisco to recover an important artifact. But he quickly runs into trouble, encountering a rebel faction of the Tenakth tribe – vicious fighters who have somehow acquired the power to override machines. Aloy must cross the ruins and fight multiple enemies to rescue her friend and continue her journey. 

Horizon Forbidden West

This dangerous and unfamiliar land is full of challenges and threats, but Aloy will have new tools to help her on her way. The Pullcaster speeds up climbing, getting her quickly out of trouble; the Shieldwing allows her to safely descend from great heights (or surprise enemies from above); and with the Diving Mask, a whole new underwater world is open for exploration. Not to mention big upgrades to her Focus, which now shows areas that allow free-climbing and gives her the ability to override more machines for mounts or combat.

Horizon Forbidden West

Speaking of combat, Horizon Forbidden West puts the emphasis on tactics and choice by giving the player a huge variety of weapons. Aloy’s trusty Spear is good for close combat and enables a new set of combos. Bows with specialized ammo types strip armor off machines to expose their weak spots. Adhesive grenades can be fired from slingshots, temporarily stalling foes. Plus many more, and all of them can be upgraded at a workbench.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human launches on PS5 and PS4 December 7, new gameplay details

Survivors, the sun is setting! It’s been over twenty years since the virus took over Harran, driving it into ruin. Humanity lost there, but now a glimmer of hope emerges in The City, one of the last bastions of mankind in Dying Light 2 Stay Human—for the survival of the entire human race, but also for you, a wandering pilgrim, serving as a connection between the scattered settlements. Driven by a promise of unveiling the secrets of your past and finding the one you’ve lost, you pause your travels and begin forging your own legend there.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human offers a broad, tiered open world full of unique architecture. As civilization has fallen back to the Dark Ages, The City interlaces modern urban structures with medieval buildings and agricultural land. Your main way of traveling is your parkour abilities, but you’ve also got a grappling hook and a paraglider to navigate smoothly through its many levels. Most often, there’s more than one way to reach your destination, so try to be creative and play with your skills to discover new possibilities and test your limits.

During your adventure, you’ll learn that The City’s a living and breathing world. Its inhabitants have opinions, relationships, and form factions, constantly struggling to tip the scales toward them. It’s often up to you who’s going to have the upper hand in the ongoing conflict, but remember that the consequences of your choices are yours to face, too. The City is a complex organism that will react to your decisions. Depending on whom you support, the setting around you will change, offering you new opportunities, but also posing many new challenges.

When it comes to combat, your choices are equally crucial. The world of Dying Light 2 Stay Human is full of brutal fights and unexpected encounters. You’ll need to adju

Aragami 2 release date confirmed with a new gameplay reveal

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Hello everyone! Today we’re so excited to announce that Aragami 2 is arriving to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on September 17. To mark the occasion, we’re also excited to shed some details on how Aragami 2’s three-player co-op evolves the ninja clan experience, along with some development insights.

We also proudly present a first look at its gameplay with a new trailer featuring a cinematic, in-engine look in which you’ll see how this sequel is taking the Aragami series to loftier heights. Check out the enhanced stealth mechanics and an all-new combat system where every move must be calculated.

Aragami 2 release date confirmed with a new gameplay reveal

Since Aragami 2 is a stealth game, we challenged ourselves to create a combat system with supernatural ninja skills, which also encourages stealth over brute force. We thought the best way to achieve this was to give our characters agile and skillful movement, which empowers subterfuge and stealth assault instead of a lot of strength. It also strengthens the exciting feeling of overcoming overwhelming odds.

We based the combat on fast character movement, explosive dodges, and lightning-fast combo attacks. At the same time, we discouraged blocking, since we want to keep action fast-paced and convey that our character uses his agility and reflexes over strength. Instead, we favored parries, since they are more dynamic and technical in their application.

But how does this work with a three-player co-op system?

Let’s start by looking back at the previous game we released – Aragami. The two-player co-op feature worked very well in Aragami: players loved beating the campaign alongside a friend and planning different strategies to complete the missions. We were overwhelmed by the impressive amount of players sharing their walkthroughs and also seeing them establishing their own identity combining different character skins and dyes.

Given the positive reception, it was very clear that the co-op would be one of the main pillars for the development of Aragami 2 from the very beginning, but deciding for a three player co-op instead of two or four, was more an iteration process than a pre-reasoned decision. Narratively, we had to create a sensation of a clan and not to center on a lonely ninja, and the option of a two-pl

8 tips to conquer Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Welcome to the Mortal Realms! With Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground, we at Gasket want to bring dynamic turn-based combat with strategic depth, where every piece at your command can be used in a variety of ways during fast-paced, decisive matches. With our game releasing tomorrow, we can’t wait to see you in the ever-changing realms. 

If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check out our latest Overview Trailer to learn more about the freedom of playstyles, with a huge variety of approaches to every army and battle.

Whether playing through the endlessly replayable solo campaigns with roguelike mechanics or fighting online against other players for dominance in online PvP matches, you’ll discover a wealth of challenges, rich mechanics, and customization options. Here are some tips on how to overcome your foes and survive in the brutal environment of the Mortal Realms.

Consider your positioning carefully

Unit adjacency bonuses will affect armor, damage, and health. Hills, hazards, and other units all affect the outcome of combat. If you step up to attack a squad while standing next to a hazard, you might find yourself knocked into it on the next turn. You can mitigate this by positioning troops to prevent enemies from occupying the spaces that would allow that position; it can be worth giving up a potential attack if it means protecting your hero from death.

Experiment with different troop synergies, wargear, and skills

Ranged units like Castigators and Chainghasts can be modified to penetrate armour, increase damage, or set fire to their targets. Heavily modified units do cost more to field, so sometimes it can be worth keeping a slot empty in order to field them earlier. Battle after battle, you will learn about the enemy’s weaknesses and equip your units for the dangers that await you. Sometimes a simple skill swap is enough to make the difference between victory and defeat.

Your economy matters

Power lets you field units and Divine Acts, but unspent power converts to Aethyr which lets you use magical abilities with your fielded troops. Do you field early troops to let you capture wellsprings that raise your power and aether resources, or d
