First Image of Next Call Of Duty Released

Duty

Sledgehammer Games revealed the first image of their upcoming Call of Duty title at their GDC 2014 panel, and it looks quite pretty. The image shows one of the character models rendered in-game, and boasts next-gen visuals that the Call of Duty franchise has not yet seen. Sledgehammer Games has been brought on-board to add an additional year to the development cycle of Call of Duty, and they promise that 2014’s release will be focused on next-gen.

I have my reservations about how accurate this image will turn out to be. When you consider Activision’s love for outdated engines, and their need to force the same game out every year with little to no enhancements, it makes taking what they release with a grain of salt that much easier. All of that said, if they’ve learned anything from the lackluster Call of Duty: Ghosts, we might actually be in for a treat.

Dragon Age: Inquisition Gets Release Date, New Trailer

Dragon Age

EA has announced that Dragon Age: Inquisition is coming out on October 7 in North America, and October 10 in Europe. Along with this announcement comes a brand new game play trailer that details much of the plot outline and some of the more vague aspects we’ve not yet seen.

In Dragon Age: Inquisition, the expansive, beautiful world of Thedas is being torn apart by a massive, mysterious breach in the sky. Players must assume the role of the Inquisitor and lead a team of legendary heroes to uncover the truth behind the impending devastation.

Well, I’m excited. It seems like Bioware is trying to show that they’ve learned their lesson as far as Dragon Age goes. With an entirely new combat system, robust world to explore, and a plethora of characters to interact with, we can all hope that it succeeds in delivering a polished and redemptive close to the trilogy.

If all of that weren’t enough, EA also released several screenshots and the official box art for your viewing pleasure.
