Middle-earth: Shadow Of War Release Date Delayed

Middle-earth: Shadow of War, the sequel to 2014's Shadow of Mordor, has been delayed from its intended August release date. The follow-up will now launch worldwide on October 10, 2017.
In a blog post, developer Monolith stated the reason for the delay was to ensure Shadow of War delivers “the highest quality experience.”
“Middle-earth: Shadow of War expands gameplay in every dimension, including the massive open world, the story, the RPG systems, and personal player stories of the Nemesis System,” the developer said. “As with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Monolith is committed to delivering the highest quality experience. In order to do this, we have made the difficult decision to move our launch date to ensure that Middle-earth: Shadow of War will deliver on that promise.
“We understand that it might be disappointing to have to wait a little longer for the release and are sorry for the delay, but we are working hard to make an amazing game. We're excited to show more at E3..

Nintendo Switch’s Splatoon 2 Headset Is One Clunky Setup

Splatoon 2, Nintendo Switch's colorful and chaotic shooter due out next month, will feature voice chat in multiplayer mode. We've now gotten a look at the (hefty) Splatoon 2-themed headset that will launch alongside the game courtesy of the Splatoon 2's Japanese Twitter account.
Fans no doubt expected something a little less clunky, with this configuration including a splitter that allows you to hear both voice chat from your phone and game audio from the system itself. According to an image published by 4Gamer, the splitter's cables are less than 20 inches long. The site also reports the headset will cost about US $32. We still don't know if you'll be able to use other headsets in the game.
In March, Nintendo revealed Splatoon 2 would have voice chat, using smart devices to link up to eight different Nintendo Switch systems together for local multiplayer.
Meanwhile, Splatoon 2's Japanese players are getting a Switch bundle with the game, neon green a..

Need For Speed Reveal Confirmed For Tomorrow

After a year away, Need for Speed returns later this year. Having already confirmed the game, EA plans to officially unveil the next entry in the series tomorrow, June 2.
The franchise's Twitter account tweeted out the image below, promising a “full reveal” of the game at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET / 2 PM BST. It also includes a link to the official YouTube channel, suggesting we'll be getting a trailer then. We'll have all the details here at GameSpot as they're announced.
EA published what may have been a teaser image of the game earlier this week. By turning down the brightness, you can make out what appears to be the Seattle skyline, including the Space Needle. A setting has not yet been announced, but that's a detail we'll likely learn about tomorrow.
Like the 2015 reboot, this new Need for Speed is developed by Ghost Games–but it will not require an online connection in order to play, as that game did. Customization and police pursuits will be a part of the ..

New Tropico Game Teased With First Trailer, Shows President Who Likes Tweeting

It appears that a new Tropico game is on the way: Calypso, developer of the banana republic-building series, has released a short teaser video starring Tropico's authoritarian main character, El Presidente.
The teaser begins with a few clips from radio broadcasts that all refer to current events. “Plans for the wall have been approved,” one says, possibly referring to President Donald Trump's calls for a border wall between Mexico and the United States. “The UK has left the European Union,” another states, alluding to the recent vote on Brexit.
Then, the video shows El Presidente picking up his phone and using a Twitter-like social media platform to post, “Time to get back into the game.” You can see the video above.
Although the video is titled simply “Rule Again” and Calypso hasn't yet announced a title, it seems like a good bet that it's Tropico 6. “In times of political turmoil and social unrest, the people are calling out for a visionary leader, one who will st..

Another Stylish Platformer Coming To Nintendo Switch In 2018

505 Games is bringing the beautiful platformer/RPG hybrid Indivisible to Nintendo Switch, the publisher announced today.
Developed by Lab Zero, the studio behind Skullgirls, Indivisible takes players through a fantasy world inspired by various world cultures and mythologies. The game stars a young girl named Ajna, who discovers she has a mysterious power that allows her to “absorb certain individuals into her being.” On her journey, she'll team up with “dozens” of other characters to battle foes and stop the warlord who destroyed her home village.
Indivisible was initially announced for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game was partly funded through a successful Indiegogo campaign and features a soundtrack scored by Hiroki Kikuta, the composer of Secret of Mana.
Indivisible is due to arrive for all platforms simultaneously in 2018. In the meantime, players who backed the title on Indiegogo will receive a special preview on PS4, Xbox One, or PC “in the coming weeks.”

Killer Instinct, Divekick Dev’s New Game Looks A Lot Like God Of War

Iron Galaxy is often associated with fighting games, as it developed the last two seasons of Killer Instinct and the two-button fighter Divekick. But its new game, called Extinction, is an action game that looks similar to God of War or Attack on Titan.
The studio announced Extinction today with a cinematic trailer. In the game, players will fight against massive, 150-foot-tall ogres and armies of other creatures. Iron Galaxy describes the gameplay as built upon a “dynamic skill-based combat system,” which requires players to “tactically disarm and dismember enemies” to weaken them before they can be killed. Check out the trailer above.
Although this isn't a gameplay trailer, it still gives an idea of the tone and style that Extinction is aiming for. Although there is certainly a level of gravitas given by hulking monsters rampaging through a city, the art looks stylized and colorful.
According to a press release, gameplay will be fast and fluid. You can wall-run, vault using your..
