Tomb Raider may be down but it ain't out. Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix have confirmed the new launch date, March 5, 2013 on Mac, PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Along with that news comes this new gameplay trailer. (Holly Green)
The first official trailer for Dawnguard has arrived, showcasing the two new factions set to take center stage. One side is the titular Dawnguard, and the other is their bloodthirsty enemy -- a cadre of particularly powerful vampires. It'll cost 1600 MS Points and will be on Xbox 360 this Summer. It's another exclusive for now, so expect to see it on PS3 and PC at a later date. (Jim Sterling)
One of my most anticipated games to see at E3 next week is easily Dishonored. Everything we've seen so far seems phenomenal, and we're finally treated to our first real look at the gameplay with this new trailer. I'm loving just how violent this game is looking. Swords, guns, and super powers -- what's not to love? Dishonored will be out for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on October 9. (Hamza Aziz)
Injustice: Gods Among Us is a fighting game that brings together the DC Universe characters for a beatdown festival that only world-class superheroes and villains could give us. Ed Boon himself showed it off to select press recently, and it was there where he said that he wanted to introduce new fighting game features that would move the genre forward. (Dale North)
As we found out earlier this week, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is a thing. Mercury Steam is behind the new game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation, along with Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate for the 3DS. (Hamza Aziz)
Out of the big name games that I plan on seeing this year, it's Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance which has me the most intrigued. Having enjoyed the evolution of the Metal Gear Solid series over the years, by and large, I find myself at a point where I can't really foresee where the franchise would go and be able to maintain my interest without a dramatic shift in a new direction. (Conrad Zimmerman)
All Games Beta has thrown a bunch of screenshots up for the next Dead Space game, prior to its announcement. With the appearance of a newer and redder buddy hanging off of Isaac Clarke's arm, these shots appear to reveal the rumored co-op gameplay featured in Visceral's sequel. They also show the ice-covered planet that's been talked about for the better part of a year. (Jim Sterling)
