2010 videogame previews part 2

by Wencke Schuncken

Welcome to the next 5 games which will (hopefully) be released in 2010. We hate it when games are delayed and pray that all of the games on our wishlist will be released soon! Delay is unacceptable ;)

The next 5 games to look out for are Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight, Dante’s Inferno, Dark Void, and Deus Ex 3.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
Get ready for a new castlevania adventure which is described as a reboot of the franchise. It will be an action adventure game in a fantasy setting in Southern Europe during the Middle Ages. The Earth's alliance with the Heavens has been threatened by a malevolent force known as the Lords of Shadow. The souls of the deceased and evil creatures inhabit the dying land, and attack living people. The main character, Gabriel Belmont is a member of holy knights who protect and defend innocent people against the supernatural creatures. The game will be released on PS3 and Xbox360.

Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight
This game will constitute the final chapter in the Tiberium saga. The fight against the NOD bad guy Kane will be played in real-time strategy in a quick and offensive way. Tiberian Twilight gameplay no longer requires the player to gather resources to build an army, unlike past C&C games, nor to destroy all enemy forces. In the main game mode of C&C4, you will have to capture control nodes that are scattered across a map and hold more nodes than the enemy long enough to gain enough points to win the match. It will be released in March for PC.

Dante's Inferno
Dante's Inferno is an upcoming third-person action-adventure game , based on the first part of Dante's Divine Comedy. Control Dante, a veteran of the Third Crusade, who chases his beloved Beatrice and attempts to free her soul from Lucifer, who needs to wed a heaven-bound soul to break free of Hell and make another attempt to take over the Throne of God. As his pursuit takes him through the monstrous entities within the nine Circles of Hell to save Beatrice, Dante must face his own sins, his family's past and war crimes. This game is scheduled for release in February on PS3, Xbox 360 and PSP.

Dark Void
The game's story will center around a cargo pilot named William Augustus Grey (who appears to fly a PBY Catalina flying boat) who crashes in the Bermuda Triangle. From there, he is teleported to a parallel universe where he encounters other humans, called Survivors. Together, Will and the survivors must battle an alien race known as the Watchers to return to Earth. Dark Void mixes on-foot and mid-air combat and you can check it out in January on PS3, Xbox360 and PC.

Deus Ex 3
Deus Ex 3 will be the third game in the role-playing game series, but is a prequel to Deus Ex. The game takes place during the year 2027. Nanotechnological augmentations have yet to be developed and biomechanical augmentations are the current state of the art. The main character, Adam Jensen, is a private security officer with a company that specializes in these augmentations. He witnesses a chilling attack on his company, and "the conspiracy begins." It is stated that women will play a larger role in the game, but it is linked to Adam Jensen’s apartment where he stores his secrets and collected information, so we wonder what the developers mean with “women will play a larger role in the game” … But let’s find out in Fall 2010 on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
