Ezio might be through with his journey, but the war between the Assassins and Templars rages on. The next hotspot of the war is a surprising one: the Thirteen Colonies on the eve of the American Revolution. On October 30, players will get to try their hand (and blade) at being another of Desmond’s ancestors, the half-English and half-Native American Ratohnhaké:ton. Donning the name Connor, the new assassin will fight the Templars in a battle that spans the Revolutionary War as well as the Colonies and the surrounding frontier.
Steel Battalion Heavy Armor, the follow-up to the early-2000’s mech sim renowned for its massive (and awesome) controller, will follow in its predecessors’ footsteps as an Xbox exclusive. But for those with their Kinects at the ready and itching to jump into the pilot’s seat, you only have a few more months to wait. Capcom has announced that you will be able to control a massive mech of your very own on June 19.
Eve Online developer CCP Games has announced that their upcoming online first-person shooter Dust 514 will be a free-to-play PlayStation 3 exclusive. Dust is set in and shares the Eve universe, allowing players to wage war in team-based combat on thousands of different planets. Combat will also be coordinate with Eve pilots as factions defend and expand their empires. The first hands-on demonstration will take place at CCP’s Eve Fanfest in Reykjavik, Iceland (March 22-24). All attendees will receive invitations to the closed private trial, which will kick off in December and “be organically expanding throughout the beta period,” with the final launch scheduled for later this year.
Xbox 360 owners looking forward to Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will need to set aside some MS Points for an extra online mode. Capcom has announced that Nemesis Mode, an eight-player competitive mode that pits Umbrella Security Service squads against Spec Ops forces, will be available on launch day as a 360 exclusive. The big twist: the team that holds the control unit gets to control Nemesis. Slaughtering opponents with a massive mutated cyborg of your very own will cost 320 MS Points.
