Gamend Nederland is already playing Horizon Zero Dawn, while De Wacht is busy as a night owl to fill our favorite game site with the latest and hottest news. Today more info about Nintendo Switch and Ghost Recon Wildlands.
First trailer of SteamWorld Dig 2
Yesterday the sequel to one of the best downloadable games of the last few years was announced for the Nintendo Switch. This was of course accompanied by a trailer that combines the familiar gameplay with new graphics. Besides the Guard, is anyone getting excited about this game?
See The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as a 2D prototype
Tomorrow the new The Legend of Zelda will finally be released for Wii U and Switch. For years we have been waiting for Link’s latest adventure. E3’s passed, postponements became regular, and a complete system has even flopped in the meantime. Now, however, the time has come that we can go to save Princess Zelda for the countless time.
Nintendo has already announced that during the development of the new Zelda a 2D prototype of the game was started to see if the new ideas were internally successful. Today images of this 2D prototype were presented during the GDC game fair and you can now see with your own eye how this works.
The prototype looks like the first The Legend of Zelda on the NES, but runs entirely on the new chemistry engine behind the latest title. In addition, there are also a large number of the physics in the demonstration build that are also in the real game. In the video below we get a brief look at the 2D prototype. In the coming months, more and longer videos will be released showing the entire process behind the development of Breath of the Wild.
Ghost Recon Wildlands beta most popular Ubisoft beta ever
The violence of Horizon: Zero Dawn and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild almost makes you forget that Ghost Recon: Wildlands will be released next week. In any case, that is the thought at stake with the Guard. For the average gamer this is not so bad, at least that can be concluded if we look at the success that the beta has generated. The beta was started by 6.8 million players, one record for the French company.
Last month, the publisher already managed to hone the record during the beta of For Honor, but this milestone has already been broken by the upcoming Tom Clancy game. For Honor managed to drag 6 million players into the beta and then expropriate several members with a blunt sword attack.
Learn what the beta players have achieved through an infographic. For example, there has been joint play for almost 4000 years if you translate it into one person. Imagine how we could have helped humanity move forward by using this time usefully, probably not much, but the idea remains fun.
Check out the eShop on Nintendo Switch here
The new game console from Nintendo will be released tomorrow and that is why there is one last moment for the Japanese company to convince gamers to get the system at launch. How do you make the most of this last moment? Well, you show that the eShop is a little less crappy than before. Keep it up Nintendo!
PS Plus gives us Tearaway for free
A new month has arrived and in addition to the fact that we can look forward to higher temperatures and more sun, this also means that gamers with a PlayStation Plus subscription can prepare for a number of new games offered by Sony. This month, Tearaway Unfolded takes center stage. The game from Media Molecule lets you explore a world of the same stuff like shredded paper and is one of the most original platformers to be found on the PlayStation 4. The complete list of PlayStation Plus games for this month looks like this:
- Tearaway Unfolded (PS4)
- Disc Jam (PS4)
- Lumo (PS Vita, Cross Buy with PS4)
- Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late (PS3)
- Earth Defense Force 2025 (PS3)
- Severed (PS Vita)
Severed from Drinkbox Studios, which we all know from the great Guacamelee, is also a real topper in this list that is not overflowing with quality. The range of games can be downloaded from February 7, at the same time last month’s games will be removed from the PS Plus catalog. We got LittleBigPlanet 3 back in February, so get that game in before it’s too late.
Form a band in The Escapists 2
The time has come again to escape from jail and disturb society. The sequel to Team17’s hit indie game was announced last year, but today we learn some new details around the breakout simulator.
In The Escapists 2, you and your fellow inmates are supposed to break through the system and get outside the walls of the prison. In this sequel, there are new ways to strengthen your bond with your fellow inmates and thus achieve a successful outbreak. One of the novelties is forming a prison band and making music together. In addition, you have the option to make it very difficult for your direct rival by turning his cell upside down and planting escape tools before notifying guards about his escape plan.
Finally, it was announced today that there are many more options in the sequel to give your characters their own look. So there are more hairstyles, glasses, clothing and of course HATS !!!! The Escapist 2 is scheduled for release on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch this year.
DiRT 4 shows extensive stage creation tools
DiRT 4 is without a doubt the rally game fans have been waiting for for some time. The Codemasters franchise has been able to profile itself for years as the only rally game that matters and they try to increase this status even further with the upcoming part. DiRT 4 should be released on June 9 and this time adds an extensive stage creator so that gamers no longer have to learn every job by heart, but because of the diversity and the wide range of tracks really start racing on the feeling. There is very direct cooperation with Rally greats …. and …. as can be seen in the trailer, well you can see that the Guard is not really at home in rallying.
