Vive la resistance
Some games dribble information at a snail’s pace in the months leading up to release. And then there’s XCOM 2, which put out a twelve minute gameplay trailer this week. Here it is: https://youtu.be/uJ-rTdoiJZU
The Grand Tournament
Hearthstone fans, be sure to enjoy this weekend. Today Blizzard releases the next big expansion, The Grand Tournament. With 132 new cards and a brand new “Joust” mechanic, it may be a while before you have free time again.
When the lights go down in the city
That new Cities: Skylines expansion, After Dark, has an official release date now. On September 24 you’ll be able to get your in-game circadian rhythm going, plus zone for entertainment districts, add new unique buildings, and more. Those that buy the $15 expansion will get the full suite of content, though some of it will still be added for free to owners of the base game.
I don’t know if Mad Max: The Video Game will be any good. On the one hand, it’s Just Cause developer Avalanche. On the other hand, it’s a PC game published by WB, which doesn’t have the most stellar track record lately.
I’m digging this new trailer, though. Like with Just Cause 3, Avalanche has put together a choose-your-own-adventure style video for Mad Max. Check it out: https://youtu.be/gI0iHj94xvw
