UPDATE - We have the new trailers, and they are yours to watch!

Ubisoft showed a new trailer and some new gameplay footage during its E3 Conference for Rayman Legends. Formerly a Wii U exclusive, it was delayed until later this year so it could simultaneously be released on other consoles. It will be released on the third of September. 

The game will feature different universes, competitive multiplayer modes, epic boss battles, awesome musical maps, and last but not least, over 120 levels. Like Ubisoft says, this'll be the biggest Rayman ever.

Watch Dogs appeared at Ubisoft's E3 conference this year with surprising results. The only thing the Ubisoft Montreal game had to show was a trailer that ironically leaked a day before. Viewers of last year's E3 know Watch Dogs was a surprise and a major hit. The trailer is included after the jump if you haven't seen it yet, but it's worth watching. While there's no new information right now, the game is still expected to release for nearly all modern consoles (excluding the Wii) and PC this November.

UPDATED: A new trailer and demo have become available for the Siege of Shanghai map! Head inside to view them!

EA is in an interesting position with the upcoming Battlefield 4, torn between older fans who prefer the high tactics of the older titles and newer fans who prefer the sort of "big-action setpiece-driven linear shooter" type of game. From what we can see, EA is trying to balance these two types of games with Battlefield 4.

The title features a brand new form of game titled "Commander Mode," in which a single player of an entire team is given the ability to appraise the combat map from a top-down perspective and issue orders and commands. In addition, multiplayer arenas can grow to the size of 64 players in a single map.

Stay tuned as we update with footage and further details.

UPDATED: The trailer shown for the game can now be viewed! Hit the jump!

Mirror's Edge 2 made its premiere at EA's Press Conference today. A cinematic trailer was shown on-stage, featuring series protagonist, Faith, getting a tattoo, as well as running and fighting her way through a gauntlet of security.

The game, sequel to Mirror's Edge, a 2008 free-running action title, capped off EA's press conference, following a live demo of Battlefield 4. No release date was announced, though a message at the end stated: "Coming...When it's Ready."

In today's E3 Press Conference, EA announced Dragon Age: Inquisition, the third game in BioWare's famous RPG series. The game is set in an open, interactive world that responds to your choices and decisions. Murrigan and other characters will also return.

Today, during Electronic Arts's E3 2013 press conference, PopCap, the studio behind the hit tower defense series Plants Vs. Zombies, announced a sequel to their game Peggle, Peggle 2.

For those unaware, Peggle is a casual puzzle game available on several different platforms, including Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, Nintendo DS, iPhone and iPod, PC, and other venues.

Watch Dogs was unveiled by Ubisoft at E3 last year, and the game has snowballed quite a bit since then. The title is one of the most popular topics on the web, and one of the most anticipated experiences of the year.

Ubisoft loves their CG trailers, with new Assassin's Creed ones becoming an annual tradition. However, the publisher has put together a fancy new trailer for Watch Dogs for viewing at their press conference. It will drop a bomb.

Unfortunately for Ubisoft, the trailer leaked. Good for us though!

Have a look into the world of Watch Dogs after the jump.

UPDATED: The trailer shown at Microsoft's conference is now available. Take a look.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been announced for Xbox One by CD Projekt Red. The game is also coming to PlayStation 4 and PC.

The new entry in the series feels "native to next-gen platforms," with fantastic graphics and new technology integration. The game features an expansive open world with very, very fast travel. New tactical combat is also being implemented into the series. Witcher 3 on Xbox One also features exclusive SmartGlass integration.

Wild Hunt is being advertised as the "final installment." This could mean the end of our protagonist's story, or the conclusion of the entire franchise. Either way, it's been one hell of a ride.

The game arrives sometime next year.

It starts at 3PM CST. Can EA restore faith in its consumers?

The Lego series has gone from Hogwarts to Gotham to Middle-earth. Now, Traveler's Tales is taking the series to the Marvel universe with Lego Marvel Super Heroes. The game was unveiled by Game Informer a couple months back, and now it's almost here.

The best thing about Lego Marvel Super Heroes is that all licenses are available. That means you can get the Avengers fighting next to the X-Men and Fantastic Four. Spider-Man gets to show up too! This is shaping up to be a love letter to Marvel fans everywhere!

You can see the new trailer after the jump!

Lego Marvel Super Heroes is coming to Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and PC this fall.

The Electronic Entertainment Expo begins tomorrow! Well, technically it doesn't start until Tuesday, but four big companies are holding press conferences tomorrow to unveil their plans for the next year. Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Sony, and Ubisoft will square off one after another. Of course, the coverage doesn't stop after those four! On Tuesday, Nintendo is airing a Nintendo Direct to coincide with the Expo! After the hour-long pseudo-conference, the Big N is releasing a series of interviews and videos throughout the day.

The show floor also opens on Tuesday, and our very own Managing Editor Colin McIsaac will be present. Mr. McIsaac will be playing demos and writing down his impressions in exclusive previews. You can see his E3 plans in more detail right here.

Of course more news will be flooding our data banks throughout the entire week, but those are the main events. Now, what time can you watch them? Where can you view the news unfold live? The E3 schedule is after the jump.

Proteus Review

June 09 2013 by Barry Herbers

The animal I followed thrust its body off the ground, hopping consistently as I stepped closer to it. Then there were two of the creatures, both springing off the ground to avoid me. With each jump came a beautiful sound, and as I followed them, the alternating bounds made a wonderful song. Plain-and-simple, that’s Proteus.

Proteus contains no cut-scenes, no dialogue, no heads-up-display, no lose state, no objective indicators and—for that matter—no determined objectives at all. As far as game play is concerned, all you do is walk around the game's island in first-person, with your only motivation being to discover.

Read on for the full review.

Plants Vs. Zombies is a nice and colorful little tower defense game available on a plethora of different online stores as well as a few other venues. But apparently the franchise is going to be getting a shooter title, with a name similar to that of Modern Warfare none the less. Promotional material for Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare has been showing up at the Los Angeles convention center which will be holding E3 2013.

Kotaku had a source claim to them that a mystery project from PopCap, the developer of Plants Vs. Zombies, was going to be a "cartoony, mechanically-novel and possibly multiplayer-oriented 3D action game for consoles," and since then has been informed that EA's Black Box Studios was working on a Plants Vs. Zombies console title "in the vein of Team Fortress 2."

Adding further evidence to this story is that, as pictured to the left, PopCap has been posting parody images of various shooters with Plants Vs. Zombies makeovers onto their Facebook page.

Add it all up and you get "Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, a comical shooter similar to Valve's Team Fortress 2." Now, who besides me is excited at that prospect?

Head past the jump to see an image of the promotional materials for Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare posted by!

Just days ago, Lionhead Studios announced Fable Anniversary, an HD remastering of Fable: The Lost Chapters, which was in-and-of-itself a rechristening of the first entry in the Fable franchise. However, unlike Fable: The Lost Chapters, Fable Anniversary is not currently having a PC version developed to coincide with its release on Microsoft's current game console, in this case Xbox 360. While this announcement does not rule out the possibility for a future PC release, if it does happen, it likely won't be released simultaneously with the Xbox 360 version.

"We have also heard lots of players asking about a PC version and all we can say is right now is that we’re only developing this for Xbox 360. We’re not ruling out a PC version, however nothing is in development at this time." --
