Electronic Arts now offers a new Zombies Reveal Trailer, showing how the undead will participate in the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Vanguard. The video is allowed to speak for itself, as it includes just this minimal description:

Welcome to Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies.

battlefield-2042Greetings No-Pats! During the last few months we’ve shown you how Battlefield 2042 is enhancing the series’ All-Out-Warfare suite of classic modes and how we’re giving you the tools to build the Battlefield experience of your dreams with Battlefield Portal.

Today, we’re excited to dive into Battlefield Hazard Zone, a mode unlike anything we’ve done before, where you and your squad must scavenge for valuable resources as foes and cataclysmic storms close in. So strap in and get ready to deploy. Things are about to get intense.

Watch the Battlefield 2042 Hazard Zone Official Trailer HERE.

In the year 2040, a worldwide event known as The Blackout has caused over 70% of satellites in orbit to malfunction and fall into the atmosphere. Communication, navigation, and surveillance were crippled, bringing an already tenuous relationship between the US and Russia to the edge of war.

In response, both countries have begun to use satellites equipped with capsules containing radiation-hardened Data Drives to collect important intelligence throughout the world. These capsules are dropped down into US/RUS controlled territories for the Occupying Forces to secure.

Such Data Drives are essential to No-Pats around the globe, providing them with valuable information to keep all No-Pats (including non-combatants) safe. And when necessary, the information can be sold to the Dark Market in return for supplies needed for survival.

This is where you come in.

In Battlefield Hazard Zone, you play as an Elite Task Force assigned to retrieve these critical Data Drives. You and your squad must locate, gather, and extract these drives before a storm overtakes the area in a high-stakes, one-life experience.

Every bullet, every skirmish, and every decision counts.

insurgency-sandstormThe indie smash-hit FPS Insurgency: Sandstorm, releasing for consoles on September 29th, has just revealed its new Gameplay Overview Trailer. Prepare for the blood-pumping intensity enjoyed by millions of existing PC players with the definitive tactical co-op FPS coming to consoles. Pre-order the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One! Insurgency: Sandstorm is already available on Steam.

Gameplay Overview

Insurgency: Sandstorm is a gritty tactical first-person shooter set in a contemporary, fictional, middle-eastern conflict. Two factions battle it out in fierce firefights where every bullet is felt, and every impact is feared. Sandstorm’s low time-to-kill and gameplay focus on immersion rewards tactical and careful play instead of run-and-gun shooting. Every mission is objective-based and can be played in either full-scale PvP battles or up to 8-player co-op.

Immersion and Authenticity

Insurgency: Sandstorm puts immersion, authenticity, and attention to detail first. Each weapon’s animation, sound, and ballistics have been painstakingly crafted and simulated. You also have a wide assortment of tactical options available; slowly open a door to slip a grenade through, kick it down for a breach, or find another way through open, sprawling urban environments.

Character and Weapon Customization

Play as several different classes from each faction, each sporting its own set of specialized equipment and gear. You can customize each weapon and the items you bring for every playstyle, but every modification comes at a tactical cost, so prepare appropriately.

As you level up in Insurgency: Sandstorm, you will also unlock various outfit items from camouflages, BDUs, track-suits, helmets, and different armor types. Customize your soldier’s face, appearance and voice to make your mark on the battlefield.

Visit the official Insurgency: Sandstorm website for more game information.

call-of-duty-vanguardSledgehammer Games’ new Call of Duty is almost here

Source: Polygon

Activision released a new teaser trailer for Call of Duty: Vanguard, officially announcing the next game in the series after a series of leaks. Players will get a first look at this year’s Call of Duty game on Aug. 19, during a special event inside Call of Duty: Warzone called the Battle of Verdansk.

The first trailer for Call of Duty: Vanguard opens with a montage of battlefields that centers on World War II. There’s a sniper’s nest that appears to be in or near Russia, a desert battlefield, a German forest, and a beach littered with destroyed aircraft. Each one of these areas features a face somewhere in the landscape, and sometimes a name (Petrova in Cyrillic, Sgt. Kingsley), hinting at characters that will be in the game. It’s also possible that these characters are the same four from the game’s official art at the end of the trailer.

The trailer featuring each of these battlefields also seems to imply that the game will likely take place in all four theaters of the WWII: the Eastern Front, the Western Front, North Africa, and the Pacific — something Activision and the Call of Duty team have been teasing for the last several days.

It seems that Activision and developer Sledgehammer Games will announce more information about the game on Aug. 19 at 1:30 p.m. ET inside of Warzone. If this is anything like previous events set inside the free-to-play Call of Duty battle royale game, you’ll likely want to log in well ahead of the scheduled start time to make sure you get in. While it’s not clear exactly what the event will be just yet, Activision will likely reveal more about it before it starts on Thursday.

Exodus, the promised short film for Battlefield 2042, is now online. This helps set the stage for the events in the upcoming installment in the military shooter series, and shows off some returning faces. Here’s word:

Electronic Arts and DICE have released “Exodus,” a short film providing a closer look at what started the No-Pat Civil War in Battlefield™ 2042 as well as introducing its rich cast of playable No-Pat characters known as Specialists. Most notably, “Exodus” reintroduces an old friend for fans of the series with Battlefield 4’s Kimble “Irish” Graves, played by Michael K. Williams, returning to 2042 as a playable No-Pat Specialist. Exodus also introduces the mysterious “Oz,” who clashes with Irish over the future of the No-Pats and sows the seeds of conflict. The narrative will continue to evolve over time as more Specialists join the conflict, each with their own story to tell, and pull players deeper into the world and lore of Battlefield 2042.
