Sony has finally announced that the highly anticipated Ghost of Tsushima, set in feudal Japan, will be coming out on June 26th.

To celebrate the announced release date, Sony released a brand new trailer. The new trailer showcases the main protagonist, Jin Sakai, and the game’s stealth and combat mechanics.

You can check out the brand new trailer below.

The PlayStation Blog also released some interesting details about some of the characters you’ll meet along the way.

  • Shimura- The Jito of Tsushima and Jin’s uncle. He trained Jin in the traditional ways of the samurai. However, he grows concerned when Jin abandons his principles when he becomes The Ghost.
  • Khotun Khan- The leader of the Mongol army. He is a ruthless enemy with an army at his disposal and vast knowledge about the samurai that he uses to destroy them.

505 Games and partners Magnus Games have announced that December will see a huge update for the wildly successful PC game Re:Legend. For all the info check out the press release from the studio below.


505 GAMES, MAGNUS GAMES UNVEIL THE CONTENT OF THE UPCOMING BIGGEST UPDATE EVER RELEASED FOR RE:LEGEND

Christmas update comes with a new biome, a new island, a full set of Magnus and a lot of upgrades

CALABASAS, Calif – Nov. 25, 2019Re:Legend, the cooperative multiplayer JRPG adventure widely acclaimed and published under the Steam Early Access program, announces a huge free update to be made public on 20th December 2019. The new content will strongly enhance the gaming experience, introducing a series of changes discussed with the wide and fervid community which has grown around the game.

Players will be offered the Desert, a “fresh” new biome with its wide range of Magnus to be discovered and trained, and – to balance with the colder weather of the boreal hemisphere! – a new Christmas-themed island, as well populated with special creatures. Including for the first time the Legendary Magnus, this update will also deploy a breed of Magnus designed in cooperation with the top backers of the Kickstarter campaign that made the game so successful.

Thanks to the huge work made on the quest system and in the expansion of the quest line, players will be able to enter in a more immersive adventure, and will now have access to a solid multiplayer experience. The new multiplayer system will be extensively tested prior to the release of this juicy update, through an opt-in open beta window, accessible from December the 6th to all the players who will sign in and choose the proper beta branch through Steam.

WHAT IS RE:LEGEND? Set in the world of Ethia, players awake as a legendary hero, washed ashore on Vokka Island with no memories. Players must revive their hero and find ways to remember the forgotten past. By learning how to survive – cultivating the land, breeding and catching fish, befriending inhabitants, expanding the village, crafting weaponry and training for combat, among all the available activities – players will increase the chances of taming and raising the Magnus, magical creatures that populate this wondrous world. With a Magnus on their side, the adventurer will be able to venture across the land, facing threatening challenges, finding even more powerful Magnus and eventually regain lost memories.

An all-encompassing JRPG-simulator hybrid combining farming and life-simulation mechanics with strong monster-raising and multiplayer features, Re:Legend invites players to build and expand their village through a huge variety of life-simulation activities, inclusive of farming, fishing, crafting and more. Several renowned composers are working on Re:Legend, including famed Video Game Orchestra founder and composer Shota Nakama (Final Fantasy XV).

Re:Legend  is available on Steam for PC at the special price of £15,49 while in Early Access.

Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina

CRITICAL ROLE: THE LEGEND OF VOX MACHINA is coming to Amazon Prime with new series

Amazon Prime has announced that it will be exclusively releasing a new animated series from the Critical Role team entitled The Legend of Vox Machina. The company has also entered a deal to develop new episodes of the hugely popular original Critical Role series for release via the platform.

HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ANIMATED SERIES CRITICAL ROLE: THE LEGEND OF VOX MACHINA TO EXCLUSIVELY STREAM ON AMAZON PRIME VIDEO

Amazon Studios Also Announces First Look Deal with Critical Role to Develop New Series to Launch Exclusively on Prime Video

LONDON, UK – 6 November 2019 – Amazon Prime Video, along with Critical Role, today announced the service will be the exclusive streaming home for the upcoming animated series Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina, based on the adventures and characters of Critical Role, a leading story-driven and world-building digital media brand. Amazon Studios has ordered two seasons of the series and has also closed a first-look deal with Critical Role to develop new series to launch exclusively on Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. This content agreement builds on the long-standing engagement Critical Role has had with Amazon’s live-streaming service Twitch, where they have broadcast their wildly successful live role-playing show since 2015.

Earlier this year, Critical Role launched The Legend of Vox Machina as a Kickstarter campaign for a 22-minute animated special produced by Titmouse, reaching their original funding goal within minutes. The campaign continued to gain traction thanks to Critical Role’s passionate fanbase, becoming the most-funded TV, film or animated project in Kickstarter history and raising over $11.3M, enough to fund a 10-episode season. With this new agreement, Prime Video will build on that record-breaking support, ordering an additional 14 episodes, for a total of 24 episodes across two seasons, to stream exclusively on the service.

Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina follows a group of second-rate, drunken adventurers on a quest to save the realm from terrifying monsters and dark magical forces, only to discover they become a family in the process. It’s an adult animated action-comedy series in the fantasy universe of, and starring original characters from, Critical Role.

“We were absolutely floored by the level of enthusiasm we received on the Kickstarter campaign, and now we can deliver exactly what the fans wanted, and MORE,” said Sam Riegel and Travis Willingham, cast members of Critical Role and executive producers on the series. “Teaming with Prime Video to deliver the series to fans across the globe is exciting and surreal — and we’re psyched to be able to tell even more stories with not just one, but two 12-episode seasons!”

“Critical Role blazed a new trail for original digital content, with fresh new voices and humour that earned devoted fans around the world, as evidenced by their wildly successful Kickstarter campaign,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “We’re thrilled to work with the whole team to bring The Legend of Vox Machina, and new Critical Role series, to our Prime Video customers.”

Chris Prynoski, Titmouse president and founder added, “I’ve been wanting to make an animated show based on fantasy role playing games since I was 1st level. I’m overjoyed for Titmouse to join the Critical Role adventuring party to slay this beast alongside the mighty Amazon army!”

Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina stars the Critical Role cast of Laura Bailey (Future-Worm!), Taliesin Jaffe(Mr. Mum), Ashley Johnson (Blindspot), Liam O’Brien(Carmen Sandiego), Matthew Mercer (Amphibia), Marisha Ray (Thrashtopia), Sam Riegel (Duck Tales), and Travis Willingham (Ben 10), who are reprising their roles; they will also serve as executive producers, alongside Brandon Auman (Star Wars: Resistance) and Chris Prynoski(Metalocalypse), with Sung Jin Ahn (Niko and the Sword of Light) joining as supervising director. Emmy award-winning studio Titmouse is the animation partner. Critical Role is represented by CAA, who helped broker the deal. 

When we meet the members of Vox Machina in Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina, they’re a rowdy, ragtag assortment of swords and wands-for-hire. Seven wandering dumbasses who care more about easy money and cheap ale than actually protecting the realm. But when their home city of Emon is attacked by a horrific monster, they realise they are the only ones capable of avenging their neighbours and restoring justice. United as Protectors of the Realm, we follow Vox Machina as they venture beyond the walls of Emon to battle even darker forces across the kingdom. Throughout the first season of Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina, they will face undead giants, help overthrow a sinister necromancer, and confront a powerful curse that has taken root inside their own group. Through it all, they learn how to function as a team, and discover they’re much more than that: they’re family.

Ends.
