    Capcom in its financial results briefing for the fiscal year that ended on March 31, 2019 revealed it has several games in development using the RE Engine. 

    "There are numerous titles currently being developed internally with the RE Engine," reads the report. 

    The engine was first used in Resident Evil VII: Biohazard, then was used for the remake of Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5.

    George R.R. Martin, A Song of Fire and Ice author, revealed in a blog post about the end of the HBO Game of Thrones TV series he has consulted on a video game out of Japan.

    "I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan," said Martin. 


    "As a producer, I’ve got five shows in development at HBO (some having nothing whatsoever to do with the world of Westeros), two at Hulu, one on the History Channel," he added. "I’m involved with a number of feature projects, some based upon my own stories and books, some on material created by others.   There are these short films I am hoping to make, adaptations of classic stories by one of the most brilliant, quirky, and original writers our genre has ever produced."

    Publisher Bandai Namco announced the action roguelike game, RAD, will launch for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on August 20.

    Tweet

    Here is an overview of the game:

    RAD is a 3D action rogue-like set in a post-post-apocalyptic world, where humanity has faced armageddon not once, but twice.

    Playing as a teenage protagonist, you must venture into the Fallow — an ever-changing, radioactive wasteland filled with unknown and unspeakable creatures. It is here that you will find the solution to heal the world, and transform the cracked, barren landscape into a lush source of new life.

    But humanity’s future comes at great personal cost, as the deeper you journey into unknown lands, the more you will expose yourself to gnarly toxins which will wreak havoc on your fragile human form.

    The fate of the world depends on you, your trusty bat, and whatever strange new abilities you gain as the world around you ravages your body — twisting and mutating you into something far less than human, but far more powerful.

    But forget all that — go grab that sweet bat and help save the world…or what’s remaining of it anyway!

    Key Features:

    • The Never-ending Fallow – Journey into the Fallow, a procedurally-generated wasteland that holds the secrets of the past and answers for the future
    • Holding Out for a Hero – The future of humanity rests on your shoulders, your characters will be many and all face permadeath in the wasteland, but ultimately one of them will save the world and become… RAD.
    • Don’t Stop Believing – Every step you take will transform the Fallow from a cracked, barren wasteland into a verdant source of new life, opening up the path forward
    • To Mutate is Your Fate – Radioactive toxins mutate your character into strange new forms, bringing with them powerful new abilities that challenge you to constantly adapt your play style.
    • Top Run – Take on daily challenges with predetermined quirks to see who among you is Bad and who is Rad, by comparing yourself on the leaderboards.
    • Bat to the Future – Unlock righteous new bats that let your future heroes to start out with special advantages
    • Stow It or Blow It – Bank tapes to strategically benefit your future runs, or just drop it all on sweet new kicks. For some, it’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you look doing it.

    Publisher CI Games has announced Defiant Studios will no longer develop Lords of the Fallen 2. Defiant was announced as the developer in June 2018.

    "The termination of the agreement was submitted due to inadequate execution by Defiant [of] a key work stage (milestone no. 11), a so-called vertical slice," said CI Games in a press release. "The quality of the work was lower than expected by the company, as precisely described in the agreement, despite three calls to improve the quality of this stage of work."

     

    "We categorically disagree with the portrayal of Defiant Studios made by CI Games," founder and managing director David Grijns told Eurogamer

    "The team that was working on CI Games' project was comprised of exceedingly talented developers whose work we fully stand behind. Our team knows how to build quality games as is evident by their key roles in Just Cause 3, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Far Cry 5, Devil May Cry (DmC) and many other top tier projects.

    "As we intend to abide by our contractual confidentiality obligations, at this time we cannot expand further on this matter."

    Beep has announced shoot ’em up, Cotton Reboot, for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC via Steam. The release date will be announced at a later date. 


    Here is an overview of the original Cotton game:

    Cotton is a 2D side-scrolling shooter in which the player takes the role of the young witch Cotton, who sets out on her magical broom on a quest to get her favorite candy. Fortunately for us her obsession gets her in the way of several world-threatening terrors that she must destroy in standard shooter fare.

    The game features an experience-earning system in which the more enemies the player kills the more he can upgrade his weapon by collecting power crystals. Players can also charge their weapon for special attacks and enlist the aid of Silk, Cotton’s magical fairy friend who can form up in different “option” configurations.

    Thanks Gematsu.
