This week marks Europe’s largest gaming show, Gamescom in Germany. It’s already been a busy news week for games; Xbox One X and SNES classic went up for pre-order on a few U.S retailers while the past few hours have seen current and upcoming video games based on comics drop a few headlines of their own:
Earlier this month, Telltale Games season 2 of the Dark Knight debuted spectacularly. Today the studio updated fans on when they can expect Batman: The Telltale Series – The Enemy Within episode 2, “The Pact“. The episode launches on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, mobile devices and PC on September 26. Telltale has also confirmed the game debut of none other than Harleen Quinnzel.
Harley Quinn will debut in episode two. In keeping with our efforts to create our own unique take on the Batman canon, we’ve worked hard to craft an interpretation of the character that captures her essential qualities while still framing her in a new way. The power dynamic between Harley and ‘John Doe’ should prove especially…intriguing.
Also, episode three of Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, “More Than a Feeling” launches today if you really need your Telltale fix.
Recently Capcom announced new characters through Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite‘s first story trailer. At Gamescom, the publisher debuted gameplay for Ghost Rider, Dormammu, Firebrand, and Jedah.
With Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite now less than a month away, expect the big push between the developer and Marvel Comics. Marvel is already set to publish a series of special MvC variant covers highlighting battles between the characters in game along with a special prequel promotional comic. Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite launches for PS4, Xbox One, and Steam PC on September 19th.
Rebellion, the publisher that brings you games such as the brutal anatomy lesson, Sniper Elite, is set to release a remastered version of Rogue Trooper. Based on the 2000 A.D comic by Dave Gibbons, Rogue Trooper Redux tells the story of a bioengineered soldier, as he embarks on a rip-roaring mission of revenge against his enemies on Nu-Earth. We played the game at E3 and while some bits needed a bit more updating, the action felt intense and blended well with the comic’s story elements. Not only did the studio release a new trailer for Rogue Trooper showing off graphical comparisons to the original game, but Rebellion has also confirmed the release date.
Rogue Trooper Redux will launch on October 17, 2017, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC at a price point of $24.99.
