News about new games coming out soon.
« on: November 28, 2010, 05:50:36 PM »
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood has been another hit for publisher Ubisoft, having only been held off the top of the UK charts  during its launch week by Call of Duty: Black Ops. The first multiplayer-enabled installment in the series has also benefited from a strong reception from critics.

While the PlayStation 3 version of the game contains a code for exclusive downloadable content, the first cross-platform multiplayer DLC will be hitting Brotherhood on December 14. The Animus Project Update 1.0 will be released for free on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and it will incorporate both a new multiplayer game mode and a multiplayer map.

The game mode is called Advanced Alliance and builds upon the existing Alliance game type. It will make target identification and engagement more difficult, with enemy locations being less specific than in the standard game mode. The new map is set in Mont Saint-Michel--a rocky, tidal landscape with narrow streets, multilevel architecture, and a bell tower.

What we heard: Ever since The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was released in April 2006, speculation has run rife about its sequel. The fact that publisher Bethesda Softworks' parent ZeniMax Media has an online division working on a mystery-shrouded massively multiplayer game has led to some rumors that it might be a sequel to the game in the vein that BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic is being billed as a sequel to the single-player Knights of the Old Republic games.

Now comes word from Eurogamer's Danish division that a follow-up to Oblivion is indeed in the works, and it will be a direct sequel. The site's source "not only confirmed that the game is in current production, but also spoke briefly about the content--with fantasy-sounding phrases like Dragon Lord, something with The Blades--and that voice acting for the characters in the game is currently happening in the weeks to follow." The source did not say if the game was single-player or massively multiplayer.

The official story: "No comment." - Bethesda rep.

Bogus or not bogus?: Likely not bogus. Oblivion's massive storyline left a rich legacy that is ripe for sequelization. And although Bethesda has focused on the wildly popular Fallout games of late, it is unlikely it will let the 16-year-old franchise lay fallow for long. Indeed, the developer-publisher's executive producer Todd Howard told Eurogamer that his company is on the verge of unveiling the game, as it is quite far along in development.

"One thing I can say is that from when you first hear about it to when it's out will be the shortest it's been for us," he said at last year's QuakeCon. "It's pretty far along. When we show it, we want to show a lot, because there's a lot of game there to play right now."

I hope so! I'm trying my hardest with (for now) two jobs and the website.
