Silent Hill: Ascension, one of the handful of new Silent Hill projects announced last year, has its first trailer. Ascension, developed by Genvid Technologies in collaboration with Konami and Bad Robot Games, is unique in that it’s not quite a game but, rather, what Genvid calls a MILE, or massively interactive live event. Players, or I guess viewers, in this case, will be able to influence how the narrative of Ascension plays out, giving them control over characters’ actions and fates.

The trailer doesn’t show exactly what that kind of interaction looks like, only offering a brief introduction to the characters and the spooky-as-shit world they’ll have to fight through to survive.


Developer Fumi released a teaser trailer for their upcoming game Mouse, a gritty, jazz-fueled shooter inspired by classic FPS and noir films. Join private detective, John Mouston, for an all-guns-blazing battle through a dangerous and corrupt city. There’s no release date yet, but you can add it to your Steam wishlist.



The next Mortal Kombat game — titled Mortal Kombat 1, an entry that will bring the series into the past — is (officially) coming this year. Warner Bros. Games and longtime series developer NetherRealm Studios announced the next Mortal Kombat game on Thursday with a reveal trailer, confirming that the fighting game will be released on Sept. 19 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X.

The first trailer for Mortal Kombat 1 confirms the return of some familiar faces: Shang Tsung, Liu Kang, Raiden, Scorpion, Kitana, Mileena, and Sub-Zero. But they look quite different from the kombatants that players may know for the past 30 years, as Mortal Kombat 1 is set deep in MK’s history.

NetherRealm and publisher Warner Bros. call MK1 a “a reborn Mortal Kombat Universe that has been created by the Fire God Liu Kang,” with “reimagined versions of iconic characters.” The developer promises a new fighting system, game modes, and the series’ iconic fatalities, some of which can be seen in the debut trailer above. Mortal Kombat 1 will also include a new feature called Kameo Fighters, described as “a unique roster of [...] partners to assist you in battle.”

NetherRealm’s most recent Mortal Kombat game, Mortal Kombat 11, was released in April 2019. The developer added an additional 12 characters to the roster and released an expansion pack, Aftermath, through 2020. In 2021, the studio said it was “focusing on its next project” after supporting Mortal Kombat 11 for more than two years.

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath ended with longtime villain Shang Tsung defeating Kronika, stealing her time-twisting abilities. But MK hero Liu Kang pulls a time-traveling trick on Tsung, defeating him, taking Kronika’s abilities for himself, with plans to create a New Era of the Mortal Kombat timeline (and bring back his many dead friends). Liu Kang then travels back in time to train the original Kung Lao, preparing him for Mortal Kombat contests to come.



While Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City may have left fans and critics wanting, that isn't stopping the development of a new live-action film.

Per Bloody Disgusting, the city of Sudbury recently received a substantial grant to fund a film bearing the title The Umbrella Chronicles. The city itself was one of the more prominent locations used to shoot Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, leading many to believe the officially unannounced project is either a sequel to the critically maligned video game adaptation. The Umbrella Chronicles, which is also the name of a spin-off video game in the sprawling franchise, is also being developed by Raccoon HG Productions, the same studio that helmed Welcome to Raccoon City. It's worth mentioning that Sony has yet to confirm any of the above so a grain of salt is recommended.



Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will soon be available to play on PC, marking the first time Sony’s 21-year-old action platformer series can be played with a mouse and keyboard. The port will release on July 26, but you can already pre-purchase it for $60 on either Steam or the Epic Games Store.



Bungie has been working on a new game for some time, and the company finally teased it during Sony’s latest PlayStation Showcase. It turns out it’s a spiritual successor to the company’s Marathon trilogy of ‘90s PC shooters in the form of a multiplayer extraction shooter coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC with cross-play.

“Marathon will find players engaging one another as cybernetic mercenaries known as Runners, exploring a lost colony on the planet of Tau Ceti IV in search of riches, fame, and infamy,” the studio writes over on the PlayStation Blog. The developers say it’s not a direct sequel to the original games but will have plenty of nods to that universe.

There’s no single-player campaign though, and the world will be structured around “evolving zones” where players fight over loot before their teams can extract them. To the degree there’s a narrative, it sounds like it will be based around players’ actions and discoveries, similar to the meta narrative in Destiny 2 when completed raids and community quests unlock new content and areas.



Remedy Entertainment has dropped a new trailer for survival horror game Alan Wake 2, one that’s incredibly action-packed and included a nice October 17 release date for PC and PS5.

It’s been a long time—13 years, to be exact!—since thriller novelist Alan Wake first began investigating his wife’s disappearance in Washington on Xbox 360. The original game was critically acclaimed and garnered a cult following with its eerie Pacific Northwest atmosphere and story that ventured into the surreal. Now, the writer is back in a new adventure that’s just as haunting as the first.

You can also choose between Wake or a brand-new playable character, the accomplished FBI agent Saga Anderson. The two characters’ narratives intertwine with each other in Alan Wake 2, Puha said, in what’s being described as an intensely atmospheric story that goes down dark and disturbing paths.



A lot of watching presentations like the PlayStation Showcase is just thinking a game might be a sequel to a thing you like, and as a Journey fan, Sword of the Sea had me by the throat for a hot minute during the show.

The game comes from Giant Squid Games, the studio behind The Pathless, but its Journey DNA is pretty apparent in its visuals. That’s because Matt Nava, the artist who worked at Journey developer thatgamecompany, is also working on Sword. There are scenes and set pieces in the trailer that look straight up pulled out of Journey, from the glistening desert sand to the way its main character boards across it, if you didn’t see the title card at the end, you’d think this was a Journey sequel. While it’s clearly trying to recapture the 2012 game’s magic, it’s going to have its work cut out for it when it launches exclusively for PS5 later this year.



Developer Insomniac Games came through the PlayStation Showcase on May 24 with a new trailer for the web-slinging PS5 exclusive, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

Before the new trailer shows any spider-men slinging webs, it opens on a scene of villain Kraven the Hunter deciding he wants to head to New York City to hunt down our pair of heroes.

The new footage shows gameplay of both Peter Parker and Miles Morales, with the player switching between both characters to handle a situation on two different sides of NYC. Peter is seen wearing the Symbiote Suit and using new abilities courtesy of the space parasite growing on him. Miles, meanwhile, has some cool new tech like creating wires to walk across a platform to stay in stealth. While the swinging webs and fists still look pretty great, the trailer does escalate into an Uncharted-style set piece as Miles is dragged across New York by a drone.



We’ve just gotten some clarity on how big Spider-Man 2’s map will be, and rest assured: there will be plenty to explore.

The game’s creative director Bryan Intihar revealed as much in an interview with The Washington Post, saying that the sequel’s map will be twice the size of Spider-Man 1’s. He also teased what it’s like to swing around in Queens, which we previously learned would become available during last week’s 12-minute gameplay demo.

“In terms of the size of the city, it’s double the size compared to Spider-Man 1,” Intihar said. “When you play in Queens, there’s much more of a neighborhood feel, smaller buildings, which is why the web wings work so well traversing in that area, where you can swing low to the ground if you want to, or you can fly through.”

In Spider-Man 1, players were only able to traverse Manhattan. Spider-Man 2, on the other hand, will include both Queens and Brooklyn, with other boroughs expected as well.



Rumors of a Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake have been swirling for years. Now we know all the fan speculation wasn’t for naught. Konami revealed at Sony’s PlayStation Showcase that the PS2 classic is getting modernized for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC so players can enjoy it all over again.

The remake is called Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater and there’s no release date yet and the only real look we got at it was Naked Snake creeping through a very dark jungle.

The fifth game in the Metal Gear series, Snake Eater takes place earliest in the timeline and follows Big Boss during the Cold War in the 1960s when he was known as Naked Snake. It arrived on PS2 back in 2004 and was eventually expanded in a version called Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence and ported to HD by way of the PS3 and Xbox 360. Depending on who you ask, it’s one of the best games, if not the best game, in the series.



The original Metal Gear Solid trilogy is coming to PS5.

The Metal Gear Solid Master Collection: Volume 1 was announced during today's live PlayStation showcase.

For clarity, because Metal Gear can get a smidge confusing at times, we're talking about: Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.

The reveal couldn't have been briefer – just a quick shot of the title and cover art, and that was it. At least we got a slightly soft release date for PS5: autumn 2023.
