Nordic Games snatched up some properties from the recent THQ auction. The Painkiller HD publisher acquired 150-plus SKUs for 4.9 million across all major consoles and PC. Darksiders, Frontlines, Full Spectrum Warrior, Juiced, MX vs. ATV, Red Faction, Stuntman, Supreme Commander, and Titan Quest are slated to join the JoWood and Dreamcatcher IPs already in Nordic’s stable. Don’t expect any major moves just yet, as Lars Wingefors, owner and CEO of Nordic Games, stated that they will not “dash into several self-financed multi-million dollar projects right away, but rather to continue our in-depth analysis of all titles” in regards to how to approach new installments from the acquired IPs.
Deep Silver will be upgrading all pre-orders of Saints Row IV to the Commander in Chief Edition. The next entry in the series will put players in the shoes of the President of the United States during an alien invasion, and the bonuses will help even the odds. The upgrade includes the Screaming Eagle, a weapon that fires rockets and stuns enemies with a Sonic Scream attack, an Uncle Sam uniform, and the all-purpose, American Army Knife-styled ‘Merica weapon.
Bethesda has released the reveal trailer mentioned last week with the announcement of Tango Gameworks’s upcoming survival-horror title The Evil Within. Shinji Mikami and company teamed up with designer Kyle Cooper for the creepy two-minute trailer.
Ubisoft has announced that gamers will be able to hit the dusty trails on May 22 when Call of Juarez Gunslinger launches for consoles and PC. The download-only release follows bounty hunter Silas Greaves tracking down, dueling, and leveling up against the worst of the worst in homage to the era’s dime novels, notorious for mixing fact and fiction.
