EA and Visceral Games announced the January 25, 2011 release date for Dead Space 2, as well as a new trailer. Looks really good, first one was amazing and a bit underrated, hopefully this one will do even better.
I’ve never really been a fan of the Command and Conquer series. Maybe it was the horribly cheesy cutscenes. Maybe it was lame units from previous entries in the series, such as the armored attack bear units, or the transforming mechas and ninjas. Something about the whole series just doesn’t sit well with me.
Visceral Games and EA announced Dead Space 2, a sequel to a pretty awesome horror game, is in the works. It’s being developed for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. No release date is listed. The whole press release, below…
The good new is Pandemic Studio’s The Saboteur has gone gold. The bad news, EA closed Pandemic Studios this week.
I am very proud to communicate today that The Saboteur has officially gone “GOLD” on all 3 planned platforms (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 & PC). This has been a very difficult week for Pandemic Studios, but does not change the fact that a team of amazing people worked very hard to make The Saboteur a great game that fans will be able to enjoy this holiday season. As planned, The Saboteur will be available across Europe starting December 4 and throughout North America on December 8. Vive La Resistance!
EA’s free to play online third-person shooter Battlefield Heroes has officially registered over 2 million players. To celebrate, EA is releasing a free “Heroes of the Fall” update for the game on September 30, which includes a new map.
The Xbox 360 Brutal Legend demo is now available to all Xbox Live Gold members. Previous, it was only available to those who pre-ordered the game (which seems to essentially defeat the purpose of a demo, to me). Regardless, more details here (Slightly off topic, and I know it’s not exactly a brand new feature, but I like how you can add items to your queue and they start downloading once you turn on your 360, great for adding stuff at work so you don’t forget later). I can’t wait to finally try out the game.
