Bethesda’s Todd Howard took to the stage at the Spike VGAs last night to unveil Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Hold on to your hats son, business just got megatonic. All aboard the hype train! The game will be released on 11th November 2011 and will apparently feature dragons. Expect the slightly disappointing Gamebryo engine here unfortunately.
Rocksteady and Warner Bros. released a lovely trailer of Batman: Arkham City last night at the Spike VGAs. Expect lots of cool stuff and lots of naughty criminals to sort out. America, fuck yeah!
EA and BioWare have finally officially revealed Mass Effect 3 after loads of speculation, teasing and weird unveilings. This time round, Earth is burning and you have to unite some aliens to sort out business. Mass Effect 3 will be released in “holiday 2011”.
Insomniac Games and Sony have confirmed that Resistance 3 will be released on September 6th 2011. That’s nearly three years after the release of Resistance 2. Apparently in 3, you play as the dude that killed the hero of the first two games. We hope it’s not as cheesy and weird as its prequels.
Activision has announced Prototype 2 at the Spike VGAs last night. It has a new protagonist, one Sgt. James Hellen who is going after the original game’s protagonist with his own infection powers. Prototype 2 will be released in 2012.
THQ joint project with Guillermo Del Toro was officially unveiled at the Spike VGAs last night. The game is called inSane and it’s being developed by Volition. It won’t’ be released until sometime in 2013 and looks to us like a horror title.
Microsoft announced Forza Motorsport 4 at the Spike VGAs last night. There was a live action teaser with lots of cool cars driving really fast, which is what we like. Interestingly, there seems to be more Top Gear branding about too. Forza 4 will be released in Fall 2011 on the Xbox 360.
EA has announced SSX: Deadly Descents at the Spike VGAs last night. Expect a darker, more vicious snowboarding game than anything in the series. There will also be real-world landscapes too. Other than that, we don’t know much more about it.
A trailer for Uncharted 3 at the Spike VGAs showed off an interesting new bit of information for the game: that it will be released on 1st November 2011. That’s the same month as Mass Effect 3 and will surely get you all nice and cosy for Christmas next year.
