Deep Silver has release a new gameplay trailer for Mighty No. 9. The upcoming action-platormer from Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune and developer comcept is something of a spiritual successor to the Blue Bomber and features similar combat and platforming. The video highlights a bit of this, focusing on Beck’s dash ability. The multi-purpose move can be used to reach dangerous areas, collect power-ups, and defeat weakened enemies. It’s also key in maximizing the combo multiplier, as several can be chained together to continually absorb scattered power-ups.

Blackroom (Mac, PC) Kickstarter Announcement - Screenshot 2 (Art 2)

After recently releasing a video teaser last week, John Romero has officially announced Night Work Games‘ next project: Blackroom. He’s once again teaming up with id Software alumnus Adrian Carmack for “a visceral, varied and violent shooter that harkens back to classic FPS.” As with Doom, there will be an emphasis on speed, dodging fire by circle-strafing and sidestepping, and exploring to find shortcuts and items. Quake’s influence will also be felt, particularly with rocket-jumping. The single-player campaign is estimated to last over 10 hours, with environments ranging from a Victorian mansion to an old west ghost town, and multiplayer support for versus (one-on-one, free-for-all) and co-op over six maps. There will also be Challenge Modes, including some for speedrunners, and support for player-made maps, mods, and dedicated servers. A Kickstarter campaign has gone live to fund the project, with a goal of $700,000.

Last week, Bethesda revealed The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited’s next add-on, Dark Brotherhood. Today, they have followed up with a more detailed rundown of what’s going to be included in the 2,000-crown pack. The assassin guild will unlock a new passive skill line with which players can take out citizens with impunity, protected as they are by the Shadows of Sithis. Located on the Gold Coast, last seen in Oblivion, the Brotherhood will send players on tasks in two new cities, Anvil and Kvatch. There’s danger lurking about, though, in the form of a black-armored warrior who is on the hunt for assassins. Battling him will take players through new story content. Virtual killers for hire will also have access to repeatable bounty quests, contract kill quests, and sacrament quests.
