June 12 - Sunday
Redfall gave gamers a first look at some game footage during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022, with an official gameplay reveal trailer that definitely hypes this gamer up for day one of Redfall's release.
Welcome to Redfall, Massachusetts where vampires and killer cultists will stop at nothing to make sure you and your friends die in your pursuit to take back the small town from its current evil overlords. Featuring a single player and multiplayer mode, where up to four players join together to fight Redfall's foes, each playing a character that harnesses their own abilities and strengths, which allows players to engage in a new shooting experience every time they play.
The first person shooter developed by Arkane Austin and published by gaming titan Bethesda Softworks is built on Unreal Engine 5, meaning Redfall will look beautiful as you slay vampires and cult members without mercy, utilizing all kinds of ways to do so. Redfall will be available next year in 2023 on Xbox and PC, with Game Pass subscribers able to play for free on release day.
June 13 - Monday
Is the next Scream film moving away from Woodsboro? Is it pulling a Jason and going to New York City? According to multiple sources on Twitter, sources that also had picture proof from the set apparently, it appears that the Wes Craven created, slasher franchise could once again take place in a setting that is neither California nor Woodsboro.
Fans remember when Scream 2 went to college with Sidney and we lost both Randy Meeks and Sarah Michelle Gellar. In Scream 3 things went Hollywood but the sunny Cali setting remained the same. If things do move to The Big Apple, this could provide some wiggle room for a more expanded story featuring the knife wielding killer(s), Ghostface.
The next entry in the Scream saga will be directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett from the last film. James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick have also returned as writers for the film that is scheduled to premiere next year on March 31, 2023.
June 14 - Tuesday
Capcom and those behind Resident Evil Village made a promise last year in June, that more content was coming for the eighth game in the canon series, and today at Capcom's Showcase 2022, they deliver with a video announcement that should have any RE fan excited for October.
You may have already played RE Village numerous times over but reasons to play one more time--the State of Play RE Village VR announcement--just keep on coming. Making gaming news headlines yesterday, Capcom Showcase 2022 revealed that the Winter's Expansion DLC, would be coming shortly to Resident Evil Village.
Included in the DLC content will be a new third person mode, that may or may not reveal Ethan Winter's face. Will fans finally get a good look at the protagonist who just can't stop injuring his hands? We'll see.
Coming out alongside the third person mode of RE Village will be a new story about Rose, Ethan's daughter, who by the end of RE Village is all grown up and exhibiting powers of her own. The upcoming addition will allow players to control Rose, as she enters the consciousness of the megamycete in order to find out more about her powers in a new story expansion called Shadows of Rose.
But wait! There's more coming our way with more maps and three new characters coming to The Mercenaries, both familiar foe that get defeated in the main story by Ethan Winters. Chris Redfield, Lady Dimitrescu and Heisenberg will be playable characters available when The Mercenaries: Additional Orders releases later in the year.
