Gamescom 2014 is just about over, but there were plenty of new titles announced by Sony and Microsoft. Microsoft also revealed that the next Tomb Raider is really a timed exclusive for Xbox One. Sony also praised their 10MM PS4 sales figure, saying that the war with Microsoft is becoming a blowout in their favor.
Here is what Coop Dojo had to say about the lineup of games announced at Gamescom 2014:
Dead Island 2
Deep Silver showed off a cooperative horde demo to demonstrate Dead Island’s 2 improved combat and seamless multiplayer. The engine is really good, and the marketing team are doing a good job of marketing the game. The fighting is pretty solid and lighthearted as you attack zombies with a weed-whacker. There were some flaws in the first two games that need to be addressed, and the NPCs exhibit less life then zombies.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue
According to Coop Dojo, the only good thing about Assassin’s Creed Rogue is if you don’t own a PS4 or Xbox One, then at least you can still experience the Assassin’s Creed series.
Metal Gear Solid 5
The look and potential of the game is mind blowing, but the audience is left stunned that we can’t weaponize that good, or that trained guards will become mindless zombies at the site of a picture of a scantily dressed woman. The only good aspect of this game is the graphics, but we still have no idea when the game is actually coming out
Bioware debuted its next biggest title since Mass Effect, but it doesn’t land that well. The game is a fantasy fighter RPG that pits 4 coop players against the Shadow Lord. With the incredible talent at Bioware, let’s hope that this title won’t be a forgettable blip on the radar for gamers.
Hidetaka Miyazaki announces his followup to DarkSouls, Bloodbourne. With the word blood in the game title, players will see lots of blood as they lay waste to the land’s inhabitants.
Michael Ancel, the man behind Rayman and Beyond Good and Evil is back with an animal-centric adventure game, Wild. The animals in the trailer did look entertaining, but the Groods were not that impressive. The content is the trailer was very vague, so we have no idea about what is happening in the game.
The Witcher 3
Even though The Witcher 3 got pushed back to next year, CD Project Red showed six minutes of gameplay footage. The game looks just look you would expect it to look for a Witcher game, and this title should be the first must play title for next generation consoles. The gameplay footage also suggests that the game is production-ready.
