TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge New Trailer, Delay
TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge is being developed by Tribute Games, the team behind Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. In conjunction with Dotemu the publisher of Streets of Rage 4, and Windjammers 2. With that our expectations are set high with this one. TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge looks absolutely stunning. It captures both, the classic arcade games and the original animated series.
The new trailer shows off a playable April O’Neil, as well as some stunning finishing moves. Unfortunately, Dotemu did not drop a release date. Yet, it is nice to see the game growing. This is one we are looking forward to as the press release now dates the game for some time in 2022.
Horizon Forbidden West Release Date
Horizon Forbidden West will drop globally on February 18, 2022. Along with the release date the team at Guerrilla has announced Horizon Zero Dawn received a free update for the PS5. A few weeks back we reported on a delay and that has come to fruition. While the team was aiming for a 2021 release, the new Covid-19 work from home restrictions in Europe has impacted the development of the game.
Sifu Makes Its Way To PlayStation and PC Next February
After a delay that saw the game miss its Summer 2021 release window, Sifu was reportedly set to release sometime during the Spring of 2022. Now thanks to a new trailer from Sloclap we now have an official date to mark on the calendar. Sifu will officially launch on February 22nd, 2021, and is coming to PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 as well as PC via the Epic Games Store.
The game is officially available for pre-purchase as well. It is worth noting that the deluxe edition of the game will allow players 48 hours early access to the title. This means if you are really itching for a hard-hitting martial arts game, this might be for you.
CrossfireX Gets Brand New Multiplayer Trailer
During Gamescom Opening Night Live we got a brand new trailer for CrossfireX’s multiplayer. The game looks improved from the last time we saw it in closed beta earlier last year, with a focus on big explosions and fast-paced action. CrossfireX is set to release sometime this year, but unfortunately, this trailer does nothing more than tease us.
Age Of Empires IV Gets Brand New Trailer
A brand new trailer for Age Of Empires IV was released. The trailer teases the Rise of Moscow campaign, as well as The Holy Roman Empire civilization in a quick and action-packed minute and a half trailer. With a wide variety of factions that span all the corners of the globe, with unique units and capabilities. As well as a variety of unique and historic campaigns and battles for players to attack, defend and grow their empires.
