The weekly gaming news round up to catch you up on this week’s news.
ALAN WAKE II GAMEPLAY REVEAL TRAILER
The long awaited sequel to Alan Wake is drawing near with its October 27th release date. The newest trailer debuted on Wednesday showing a few snippets of gameplay footage. Alan Wake is still trapped in the horrifying book he wrote and continues to be missing, according to the real world, for the last 13 years. Prepare to be horrified not just by the idea of reading a book, but being trapped in one with all of your worst nightmares and fears. What if your fears include reading a book? Please Alan Wake, I do not want to find out.
QUANTUM ERROR FINALLY GIVEN A RELEASE DATE
Quantum Error was originally given a 2020 release date, but with massive delays and console compatibility changes, it was pushed back year after year. This week, we finally got a hard release date for the PS5 for November 3rd in the new trailer. This survival horror campaign harkens back to the likes of Dead Space while still on earth and staying entirely unique to itself. Playing as Fire Captain Jacob Thomas, you are charged with saving lives from a burning complex off the coast of California, which goes south very quickly. This game has been a long time coming. Let’s hope that it can live up to the three year long hype.
THE WALKING DEAD: DESTINES REVEAL TRAILER
A brand new game for The Walking Dead just got its announcement trailer, giving fans the opportunity to experience the television series in a whole new light. The game features an all choice-driven gameplay that follows the television series timeline, but gives the player the option to choose different timelines as they go, altering the entire story. While fans are drawing comparisons to the wildly popular Telltale Walking Dead series, this seems destined to carve its own path and stand alone. We can only hope that at some point you are given the option to repeatedly tell Carl to shut up.
LITTLE NIGHTMARES 3 ANNOUNCEMENT AND TRAILER
With Gamescom in full swing this weekend in Germany, there will be plenty of gaming news to come. One of the early reveals we got for the weekend was Little Nightmares 3. The third installment of the bizarre horror franchise now features an all new co-op gameplay. You play as Low and Alone, two characters just trying to survive in their insane lives. The game still has not received an official date announcement, but will be here sometime in 2024.
