Gamescom 2013 Trailer Roundup

gamescom 2013 trailer roundup
Gamescom is upon us, which means one thing: lots and lots of exciting new trailers and game announcements. Normally we post all these badboys individually, but this time around we figured it’d be nice to give you quick access to all of them in one place. Below you’ll find a collection of each day’s trailers compiled on the page that corresponds to the day they were released (day 1 = page one, day 2 = page two, etc). This post will be updated throughout the show as new trailers surface, so be sure to check back periodically to see what’s new. Enjoy!

DAY ONE

Tom Clancy’s The Division

Holy asymmetrical gameplay, Batman! We were pretty stoked about The Division back when we got our first look at it at E3, but this takes things to a whole new level. Apparently you’ll be able to log in and play with your friends in real time from multiple platforms (console, PC, or tablet), and depending on which one you’re using, your experience will be vastly different.

Watch Dogs ‘DedSec’ trailer

Ubisoft has been releasing all kinds of new footage for Watch Dogs lately, but thus far most of them have focused on the game’s overarching premise and futuristic setting – we’re still largely in the dark insofar as what the story will be like. This trailer introduces us to a mysterious hacker organization called DedSec, and suggests that Aiden isn’t aligned with them. Be sure to check back for more trailers in the next few days.

Battlefield 4 ‘Parcel Storm Multiplayer’ trailer

EA and Dice left us speechless once again with this new gameplay trailer for Battlefield 4. The last few videos they’ve released for the game have been gripping first-person gameplay sequences taken from the single-player campaign, but this one finally gives us a closer look at the game’s lush, lifelike multiplayer on a hectic island map called Parcel Storm. Keep scrolling to see the other Battlefield 4 footage EA unveiled at the show.

Titanfall Gameplay Demo

We got our first look at Titanfall back in June during E3, but up until now you just had to take our word on what the gameplay was like. With this fresh new gameplay trailer, you can finally see for yourself how frenzied, frenetic, and downright fun it looks. Developed by Microsoft and Respawn Entertinment, the game is like a glorious hybrid between Call of Duty and Hawken, but with it’s own style and breakneck pace.

Lords of the Fallen debut trailer

The first debut we’ve seen thus far during Gamescom comes to us from CI Studios, and it’s definitely got our attention. In this trailer for their upcoming game Lords of the Fallen, we’re introduced to badass protagonist Harkyn as he proclaims his opposition to the Fallen God. Not enthused by this act of defiance, the Fallen God sicks one of his minions on Harkyn, who handles it like a total boss. No word on a release date, but stay tuned for more footage in the next couple days.

Batman: Arkham Origins ‘Nowhere to Run’ trailer

This video shouldn’t be called “Nowhere to Run,” it should be called “How many people can Bruce Wayne punch in the face before the credits roll?” The footage is essentially just a montage of mayhem speckled with brief cameos from each of the game’s eight villains, but that doesn’t mean it’s not entertaining. Origins is set to hit stores on October 25th, so be sure to check back for more videos in the weeks to come.

Battlefield 4 official premium video

Want early access to all the new expansion packs, maps, weapons, and upgrades in Battlefield 4? Spring for a premium account and you’ll get just that. The game drops just a couple months from now at the end of October, and if you get yourself a premium subscription, you can get access to five expansion packs – from launch until the end of the season – for just $50 bucks. Check the video for more details.

DAY TWO

EVE: Valkyrie 

Exciting news from CCP Games today: They’ve confirmed that EVE-VR – the mind-blowing Oculus Rift tech demo – is now officially set for development as a full release under the title EVE: Valkyrie. If you couldn’t already tell from the video, the game will be a multiplayer dogfighting shooter set in the EVE Online universe. Check out our full post on the news to learn more

Diablo 3 ‘Reaper of Souls’ expansion

Diablo III is set to receive it’s first expansion pack in the near future. Reaper of Souls, revealed today at Blizzard’s Gamescom 2013 press conference, is an add-on pack that will bring new story content to the game, an additional character class, and a slew of different enhancements and tweaks. Check out our full article on the expansion to learn more about what’s going on in this video.

Thief ‘Uprising’ trailer

Earlier today at it’s Gamescom press conference, Square Enix dropped a new cinematic trailer for it’s upcoming stealth title Thief. The video, dubbed the “Uprising” trailer, showcases the game’s dark Victorian setting and highlights the growing tensions between the rich and the poor. In addition to the new footage, Square Enix also announced a release date for the game. You can expect Thief to hit stores on February 28th for current- and next-gen consoles.

Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns

In addition to the new Thief trailer, Square Enix also released a fresh new video for Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns. The video is relatively brief, but it teases a fair amount of the game’s story and shows off quite a lot of gameplay. Lightning Returns is set to hit stores in North America on February 11th and Europe on February 14th.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

These Lego games are getting out of control. TT Games and Warner Bros are set to release Lego Marvel Superheroes this fall, and if this trailer is any indication, the game is going to be ridiculous. Apparently, the game will boast over 100 different playable characters – everyone from the Hulk to the Human Torch – and, as seen in the last few seconds of this video, will feature the gigantic villain Galactus.

DAY THREE

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag stealth gameplay montage trailer

At this point, Ubisoft’s asset schedule for Assassin’s Creed games has become rather formulaic. It starts with a few wicked cinematic trailers to get you drooling while they’re in the early stages of development, then a few months later they drop some gameplay footage – maybe with some developer commentary on top; and then right before the game goes on sale they release a montage comprised of nothing but in-game badassery. This video is one of the latter. Enjoy!

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn developer commentary

If you thought Square Enix was done after showing off Lightning Returns yesterday, you were wrong. Today the iconic publisher released a developer commentary video for its upcoming title Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, which showcases a wealth of early stage gameplay. It’s still a long way from being complete, but this sneak preview shows that the devs are making some exciting changes to the game’s combat systems.

Rocksmith 2014 trailer

The original Rocksmith was a pretty damn incredible. After Guitar Hero and Rock Band lost their luster and left a hole in our hearts, Ubisoft filled the void with an even better game – one that actually taught you how to play guitar. It was a great idea, and now Ubi is set to release a new version that’s even better. According to the video above, Rocksmith 2014 will incorporate a slew of new features that improve usability and make learning guitar easier than ever.

Total War: Rome II 

When it comes to large-scale tactical RTS gameplay, it doesn’t get much better than Total War. Sega and Creative Assembly have been hard at work on Total War: Rome II for the past year or so, and in this video showcases some of the awesome improvements they’ve made to the game’s multiplayer mode. Look for this one to come out on September 3rd.

Battlefield 4: Official Levolution Features

We’ve known for quite some time that Battlefield 4 maps will feature destructible environments, but we had no idea they’d be this dynamic and detailed. EA and Dice took the concept way past disintegrating cover and bullets that can travel through walls – In BF4 you’ll be able to bring down massive structures, flood entire battlefields, and interact with the maps in ways like never before. Stay tuned for more footage in the next few days.

Destiny ‘Out in the Wild’ developer documentary

Bungie dropped a whopper of a trailer today at the show that offers up an in-depth look at it’s much-anticipated title Destiny. The video showcases the game’s rich, immersive universe, diverse range of characters and weapons, and also features developer commentary to help explain key features like competitive multiplayer, public events, and the game’s massive open world.

Stay tuned for more videos, as this post will be updated as Gamescom 2013 continues
