Punctual as always, we’re here with this week’s batch of trailers. The past seven days have been dominated by Blizzard announcements, but we’ve spotted a few other trailers that are well worth a gander including a classic remake of MediEvil, the latest entry in the now encyclopedic list of Hitman 2 trailers, tongue-in-cheek live action Fallout 76, and a handful of indies.
Classic PlayStation hack and slash adventure MediEvil is receiving the remake treatment ‘from the grave up’. Very clever Sony. The changes on display in the trailer are pretty substantial and we can’t think of a better game to catapult into the 21st century. We won’t lie, it’s looking great. If they manage to retain the fun factor and humor from the original then we’ll soon be harking back to rainy 90s afternoons spent playing this gem.
By this point there isn’t much we don’t know about Hitman 2, but if a nice compiled list of all the new features is what your after, look no further. Hitman 2 launches on November 13th.
Side scrolling comedy horror adventure Phantom Halls packs quite a punch for its humble indie origins. As you can see from the trailer, you’ll gallivant around a haunted mansion, dispatching all manner of spooky enemies, and crafting weapons, all in a gorgeous low poly art style. Lovely.
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth – Lost Honor
Blizzard is the uncontested master of cinematic trailers. We’re sure you’ve come across this one in the past few days, but we’ll add it here just in case.
We’ve all got a soft spot for solo indie devs who manage to conjure up incredible looking games, and Omno is no exception. The work of Jonas Manke, Omno is an adventure puzzle game about discovery and exploration in a wondrous ancient world. Solve puzzles with light beams and shifting platforms, surf a light stick, explore a truly resplendent world full of inventive creatures and unusual flora across various biomes. Manke’s inspirations are on full display in the trailer: Journey
Fallout 76 Live Action Trailer
Bethesda don’t just make great games, they are rather proficient jesters as well. This week, the gaming giant released a live action trailer for upcoming Fallout 76 and it’s a doozy. Suitably tongue-in-cheek, well produced, and somehow profoundly in keeping with the Fallout tone, the trailer brings to life the oft bleak landscape of a post-apocalyptic world with uncharacteristic color and mirth.
No one is happy about Blizzard releasing the next Diablo game on mobile. But technically it’s still a trailer so we’ll leave it right here. If cringe is your jam, check out the live announcement.
Warface – Battle Royale
Another week, another battle royale pretender. This time free-to-play FPS Warface is having a go. The game is ideally suited to a battle royale rejig, but with so many other contenders on the market, do we really need another identical BR title? Logic dictates that we don’t. Way to jump on the bandwagon Warface.
Warcraft 3: Reforged
Long-rumoured Warcraft 3 remaster has finally burst into confirmed existence as a full reskin remake sporting the title Warcraft 3: Reforged. If, like us, you spent your younger years playing the crap out of this RTS classic, then this is a nostalgia-infused win set to revitalize the W3 community. The hope is we’ll get a cosmetic revamp without too many changes to actual game play.
