Umbrella Corps 2nd Trailer Drops

Capcom has revealed a new trailer for Resident Evil Umbrella Corps and it’s everything we NEVER loved about the Resident Evil universe.

Fast paced competitive shooter is not what comes to mind when you say Resident Evil, and with past titles such as Operation Raccoon City being underwhelming, despite selling pretty well, Capcom is still pushing for that “Call of Duty” experience. But will this finally be the game that takes off? With Esports becoming a bigger deal, and more and more companies such as EA placing a huge emphasis on competitive gaming, does Capcom have what it takes to grab a price of that market with the latest entry in the Resident Evil franchise?


With the second trailer, Capcom plays off nostalgia a great bit. The setting is in Resident Evil Four’s notorious village where we were first introduced to the Las Plagas. RE4 is often referred to as the best in the series so it makes perfect sense to play on the nostalgia of a successful game to grab the core fan base and get their attention on Umbrella Corps. But will it take off? The fast paced, action packed trailer shows off several familiar enemies such as Las Plagas, zombie dogs, and what appeared to be crows attacking the very generic looking Umbrellas soldier. Graphically, it looked pretty impressive, and if the trailer was any indication of the actual game play, than fast paced is an understatement. There was something else that deserves to be mentioned. After promoting the team based, strategic multiplayer, Capcom showed off a single player challenge mode. There is no information on whether it is an “offline” experience, but hats off to Capcom for taking notice to the growing number of online only multiplayer shooters with no single player modes or campaigns and at least promoting this option in the short trailer. With a May release window, we can only hope that more light will be shed on the single player aspect of the game, because, let’s be honest, the foundation of Resident Evil is built in the single player experience. Multiplayer only is a huge risk, especially for an Resident Evil game. And, of course, what better way to end this two minute video than with a glimpse into the next play on nostalgia with a quick look of the Resident Evil five themed area.

With a release window of May 2016, we can only hope that more details are released about this game. Umbrella Corps is currently set to release across North America and Europe at $29.99/€29.99/£24.99 on PC and PlayStation 4.

Batman: Arkham Knight Season Pass and Premium Edition Announced

 

Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment has announced a Season Pass for the hotly anticipated title, Batman: Arkham Knight that will run you about $40 if purchased on its own, or in a new Premium Edition that will cost you about $100 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but not PC, for some unknown reason.

The Season Pass previously mentioned will provide you with DLC for about six months after the game’s release on June 23rd, 2015. I don’t know exactly what kind of DLC, but Warner Brothers Interactive says to expect “new story missions, additional super-villains invading Gotham City, legendary Batmobile skins, advanced challenge maps, alternative character skins, and new driveable race tracks.”

A new trailer came out this week that shows off the darker tone and the apparent tag team mechanic that is in the new Batman title. You can find that trailer below.

Batman: Arkham Knight is coming June 23rd for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One; with Mac and Linux coming at a later date.

If you love Batman: Arkham Knight as much as I do already, make sure to check back to Proven Gamer each and every day for more information on all things video games. Have a great day!

Overlord: Fellowship of Evil Announced

Overlord_FOE_APR15_Screenshot06

After 6 years, Overlord is back. Just not in the way you’d expect.

Overlord: Fellowship of Evil is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2015 as a top-down Action RPG written by Rhianna Pritchet to give you guys a Overlord game with a dark sense of humor.

You can play Overlord: Fellowship of Evil locally or online with your friends. It’s not quite clear yet exactly how your friends will figure into gameplay other than the choice to screw them over or to have them as aids.

Mark Silk is back as well to voice the Minions.

Other than that, all I see here is that Overlord is back as an Action RPG that you can play alone or with friends. So, take this information very carefully, because I have a feeling this might change soon.

For all things Overlord: Fellowship of Evil, make sure to check back to Proven Gamer each and every day for some news you can use.

Total War: Warhammer Announced

SEGA of America, SEGA Europe announced a new title in the Total War franchise today from United Kingdom studio Creative Assembly, whose most recent work is Alien: Isolation and will be the first game that has been developed with Games Workshop, who created Warhammer Fantasy Battle, a tabletop game franchise as well as a series of mini figures.

In its 15th year, Total War tasks players with controlling a unique combination of huge-scale real-time battles and addictive campaign of statecraft, politics and empire building.

Total War: Warhammer will take the best of both Total War and Warhammer‘s respective franchises to provide the series with a realm of grand high fantasy for the very first time. The rules of the game have changed, but as of yet, it is not entirely clear what that entails.

In the new game, players will discover that the Old World is an unforgiving and treacherous place, filled with wars that are endless and the must cunning of alliances. However you choose to play, rest assured that the plot will stay the same.

Total War: Warhammer will be the first in a trilogy of titles and will deliver “hundreds of hours” of gameplay and will combine with two upcoming standalone installments as well as several content packs to create one big Total War experience.

“We’ve always loved the Warhammer universe, and couldn’t wait to approach it with the same colossal scale and authenticity that has characterised our titles for the last 15 years,” said Total War: Warhammer Project Lead, Ian Roxburgh. “We’re bringing it to life in a way that nobody’s attempted before.”

You can watch the trailer below if you want a better taste of what this new partnership will entail and includes Steven Berkoff, for your very amusement.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Ships One Million Units On The 3DS In The West

In a press release by Capcom today, it was revealed that Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for Nintendo 3DS has shipped one million units over retail and digital since its release in North America and Europe on February 13th, 2015.

Now, I’m new to press releases, in fact, this is my first one actually getting one sent to me, but Capcom says shipped instead of sold. The reason that concerns me is that when a company says they’ve shipped that many, that means that’s how many copies they’ve sent out to retailers. Now, it is curious that Capcom includes digital as part of this ship number, as quantities of digital copies will be sold out, because you’re downloading a file to your system, not buying a box.

Either way, I don’t think companies like Capcom understand what we want to hear when it comes to how a title is performing on the market. All ship numbers are is how much demand there is, not how many copies have been sold.
